Reading Practice

From Monday until Friday most people are busy working or studying, but in the evenings and on weekends they are free to relax and enjoy themselves. Some watch television or go the movies; others participate in sports. It depends on individual interests. There are many different ways to spend our spare time. 月曜日から金曜日まで、ほとんどの人は仕事や勉強で忙しいですが、夕方や週末に、彼らは自分自身をリラックスして楽しむために自由です。いくつかの時計のテレビや映画に行く、他の人がスポーツに参加しています。それは個々の興味に応じて異なります。私たちの空いた時間を過ごすために多くの異なる方法があります.

Almost everyone has some kind of hobby. It may be anything from collecting stamps to making model airplanes. Some hobbies are very expensive, but others don’t cost anything at all. Some collections are worth a lot of money; others are valuable only to their owners. ほとんどの人が趣味のいくつかの種類を持っています。これは、模型飛行機を作ることにスタンプを集めるから何かかもしれない。いくつかの趣味は非常に高価であるが、他はまったく何もかかりません。いくつかのコレクションはたくさんのお金の価値がある、他の人は、自分の所有者に貴重なものです。

I know a man who has a coin collection worth several thousand dollars. A short time ago he bought a rare fifty-cent piece worth $250! He was very happy about his purchase and thought the price was reasonable. 私は、数千ドルの価値のコインコレクションを持っている人を知っている。少し前に、彼は250ドルの価値が珍しい50セントピースを買いました!彼は彼の購入について非常に幸せだった、価格は合理的だと思った。

On the other hand, my youngest brother collects match boxes. He has almost 600 of them but I doubt if they are worth any money. However, to my brother they are extremely valuable. Nothing makes him happier than to find a new matchbox for his collection. 一方、私の弟は、マッチ箱を収集します。彼はそれらのほぼ600を持っていますが、彼らはお金の価値があるかどうかは疑問だ。しかし、私の兄弟に彼らは非常に貴重です。何も彼のコレクションのための新しいマッチ箱を見つけることよりも、彼が幸せになりません。

That’s what a hobby means, I guess. It is something we like to do in our spare time simply for the fun of it. The value in dollars is not important, but the pleasure it gives us is. それはの趣味が何を意味するのか、私は推測する。それは、我々は単にそれの楽しみのために我々の空き時間にやりたいものです。ドルの値は重要ではありませんが、それは私たちを与える喜びです。
