Reading skills - LEISURE PURSUITS


Klausimas #1


LEISURE PURSUITS*
     The majority of young people in Britain between the ages of 16 and 19 remain at, or very close to, home whether they are working, taking part in special employment training scheme or unemployed. During this period young people rely upon their home environment as a place of safety and security and upon their parents as the main providers of money, food and all the necessary amenities* for life.
 
     Attitude to parents
 
     In recent decades there has been much talk about the term 'generation gap', referring particularly to the gap in age, attitude and understanding between young teenagers and their parents that often appears to be the cause of conflict. However, research indicates that many young people still perceive their parents, rather than their teachers or other adults, as models from whom they draw their main beliefs and attitudes. Parents are also regarded as the main providers of advice about general problems as well as about employment.
     
     Survey findings show that young people's attitude towards parental authority is two-sided: they aspire* to the independence to go out where and when they want but they understand the fact that parents are concerned about where they are going and set times for them to return home.
 
     What to do with spare time?
 
     In common with young people all over the world, the young in Britain do not spend the greatest proportion of their time organising or participating in clearly defined leisure pursuits. Some have hobbies which they do at their leisure but many are more interested in general social activities that they can pick up and drop with ease and which do not entail particular responsibilities or planning - and particularly which do not cost money. Those at school or unemployed seldom have sufficient income to do what they please and are therefore restricted in the activities they may wish to pursue.
     Young men and women who have started in employment tend to join in pursuits which reaffirm their status as adults such as spending time in pubs, going to dances, concerts, discos and the cinema.
 
     Also in common with young people in other countries, life on the streets is important. As children enter their teens there is a distinct graduation from the playground, garden or home to the street where young people meet and talk and start to develop their confidence. Street life ranges from groups of friends who meet together in streets, squares and parks, to visits to town centres to do window shopping and 'see what's going on'.

     Pocket money
 
    In response to surveys young people mention limited funds as the main reason why they have to be highly selective about what they do in their leisure time. There are a great many basic as well as luxury items that those with money wish to spend it on, including clothes, records and CDs, saving for motor bikes or cars, before having enough money to make regular trips to discos, dances or the cinema, or even to pursue more specialised hobbies such as angling, bird watching or sailing.
 
pursuits - things that people do because they enjoy them; amenities -comfort; aspire - strive for, try to gain, seek
