What do old and young do in their leisure time ? What do young people in different countries prefer to do ?

Leisure is time spent in non-compulsory activities. Because leisure time is free from compulsory activities such as work, study, household duties, eating and sleeping, it is often referred to as 'free time'. The ideas of leisure and leisure time are thought to have emerged in the late 19th century with the rise of mechanized industry, when the increase in productivity of labour resulted in the fact that workers had some time to spend on themselves.

They started doing sports and visiting theatres. Since then the idea of leisure time and relaxation has been popular with all the age groups and social classes. Old and young, rich and poor have been using their free time for rest and entertainment. The ways people spend their leisure time normally differ according to the age group: middle-aged and old people normally prefer more passive kind of rest like watching TV or going to the theatre, or sometimes gardening, younger people enjoy more active pastimes like doing extreme sports, visiting night clubs and discos or travelling. However, the idea of active leisure like doing sports or travelling is gaining popularity with the older people, too.

So the basic leisure time activities of the young are travelling, doing sports including extreme sports, visiting discos and night clubs or more passive ways of recreation like listening to music or watching TV and videos, and surfing the Internet. Teenagers normally prefer to do extreme sports, that is sports featuring speed, height and danger as they lead to the so-called 'adrenaline rush9 in participants. They wish to push themselves to the limits of their physical ability and fear, and push the boundaries of a particular sport, such as bungee jumping, climbing, white-water rafting, surfing, windsurfing and many others. Their tastes in music are normally different kinds of popular music associated with youth subcultures, such as hard rock, hip-hop or rap, punk rock, psychedelic rock and the like. In watching TV and videos or going to the cinema, they prefer film genres which are full of action, movement, colour, cinema effects and have a good soundtrack. They normally like action films, comedies, musicals, thrillers and cartoons.

Sometimes the ways young people spend their free time varies according to the country, as they sometimes depend on national traditions. For example, in the USA young people normally like different types of popular culture which originated in their country like blues, different kinds of rock, country music and hip hop in music and pop art in fine arts. The sports they are doing are more often than not those which originated in America like baseball, auto-racing, basketball, and board-based recreational sports — surfboarding, skateboarding and snowboarding. American youngsters are fond of eating out and eat a lot of junk food like hambuigers and cheeseburgers and drink Coca-cola or Pepsi. British youngsters are really fond of watching football matches and sorts of races such as horse-racing, boat-racing and even dog-racing, as well as playing football, rugby and golf and taking part in races. They are really fond of pets and often spend some time in the evening taking their dog for a walk. In going out for the evening, they still prefer pubs to restaurants, bars and cafes. In music, their tastes are nearly the same as those of their American peers. In Germany young people prefer drinking beer when meeting their friends and spending much time doing various sports. In Spain many youngsters, as well as older people, are fond of watching bullfighting. In France they like listening to French chanson.

What do you like doing in your free time?

As for me, I prefer to spend my free time doing three things: doing swimming, pursuing my hobby which is collecting rare books, or listening to music in which I prefer jazz and classical music. Doing sports (I have been doing swimming since I was 7) helps me keep fit and be always in high spirits, as well as build up stamina and get tempered. The first reason why I collect books is that I am really keen on reading: Books open to me a whole world of events and people. The second one is that collecting rare books is getting to know history better. Reading a book is getting information about the period it describes, feeling its atmosphere and getting to know historical figures of the period.

I enjoy listening to music, as music helps me relax and relieve stress. When I listen to music, classical, jazz, rap or any other type of music I enjoy, I forget about the troubles of everyday life; music provides an escape from everyday problems. Stress melts away as I am taken in by the beauty of the music. It can help me feel calm and deeply relaxed. Secondly, music affects my emotions. Each type of music sets distinct mood and changes mine. Whether I am feeling sad, frustrated or confused, I listen to merry or tender music, and my mood shifts. I can't say I prefer to listen to some definite kind of music all the time. The choice of music I listen to depends on my state of mind and mood. I can tell you what kind of music I prefer to listen to when I feel depressed, and it is jazz. The first reason why I do it is that jazz music usually has a powerful rhythm, so it is a kind of music that fills you with energy and strength. Secondly, it provides a brilliant combination of instrumental tunes and voice, which creates unforgettable harmony. Jazz immediately carries me away from my troubles, fills me with hope and joy, even though its tunes are often sad. I enjoy listening to classical music, too, Firstly, I like it for the complexity of the musical harmony it offers. Modern popular music, such as pop or rock is much more primitive in melody. Secondly, the emotions classical music evokes are much stronger and deeper; they carry me away to the time when the piece of music I am listening to was composed.

A thing we do in our free time for recreation and pleasure is called a hobby. Hobbies are practiced for interest and enjoyment, rather than for money. What are hobbies for some people are professions for others: a game tester may enjoy cooking as a hobby, while a professional chef might enjoy playing computer games. Generally speaking, the person who does something for fun, not remuneration, is called an amateur (or hobbyist), as distinct from a professional. Engaging in a hobby can lead to acquiring substantial skill, knowledge, and experience. A lot of celestial bodies and events have been discovered by amateur astronomers. However, the aim of a hobby is pleasure and personal fulfillment.

While some hobbies strike many people as trivial or boring, hobbyists find something entertaining about them. In fact, anything can be a hobby, from collecting stamps and board games to doing extreme sports and making model airplanes.

Перевод текста: Leisure Time. Hobbies

Что делает старый, и молодой делают в их досуг? Что делает молодые люди в различных странах предпочитают делать?

Они начали делать спортивные состязания и посещать театры. С тех пор идея досуга и расслабления нравилась всем возрастным группам и социальным классам. Старый и молодой, богатый и бедный использовали их свободное время для отдыха и развлечения. Путями люди проводят свой досуг, обычно отличаются согласно возрастной группе: и старики средних лет обычно предпочитают более пассивный вид отдыха как смотрение телевизор или движение к театру, или иногда озеленение, младшие люди наслаждаются более активными времяпрепровождениями как выполнение чрезвычайных спортивных состязаний, посещение ночных клубов и дискотек или путешествия. Однако, идея активного досуга как выполнение спортивных состязаний или путешествие получает популярность со старшими людьми, также.

Таким образом основные действия досуга молодёжи едут, делая спортивные состязания включая чрезвычайные спортивные состязания, посещая дискотеки и ночные клубы или более пассивные пути отдыха как слушание музыки или смотрение телевизор и видео, и серфинг Интернет. Подростки обычно предпочитают делать чрезвычайные спортивные состязания, который является спортивной скоростью показа, высотой и опасностью, поскольку они приводят к так называемому 'адреналину rush9 в участниках. Они желают выдвинуть себя к пределам их физической способности и страха, и выдвинуть границы специфического спорта, такие как скачок пружинного устройства, восхождение, спуск на плотах белой воды, серфинг, виндсерфинг и многие другие. Их вкусы в музыке обычно - различные виды популярной музыки, связанной с молодежными субкультурами, такими как хард-рок, хип-хоп или рэп, панк-рок, психоделический рок и т.п.. В смотрении телевизор и видео или движении к кино, они предпочитают жанры фильма, которые полны действия, движения, цвета, эффектов кино и имеют хорошую музыку из кинофильма. Им обычно нравятся боевики, комедии, musicals, триллеры и мультфильмы.

Иногда способы, которыми молодые люди проводят свое свободное время, изменяются согласно стране, поскольку они иногда зависят от национальных традиций. Например, в молодых людях США обычно как различные типы массовой культуры, которая произошла в их стране как блюз, различные виды скалы, музыки кантри и хип-хопа в музыке и искусства популярности в искусствах. Спортивные состязания, которые они делают, чаще чем не те, которые произошли в Америке как бейсбол, автогонки, баскетбол, и основанные на правлении региональные спортивные состязания - surfboarding, катание на роликовой доске и snowboarding. Американская молодежь любит хождение куда-нибудь поесть и ест много нездоровой пищи как hambuigers и чизбургеры и пьет Кока-колу или Пепси. Британская молодежь действительно любит наблюдение футбольных матчей и видов гонок, таких как скачки, гонки лодки и даже гонки собаки, так же как игра футбола, регби и гольфа и принятия участия в гонках.

В Испании много молодежи, так же как старших людей, любят наблюдение боя быков. Во Франции им нравится слушать французскую песню.

Что делает Вам нравится делать в Ваше свободное время?

Я люблю слушать музыку, поскольку музыка помогает мне расслабить и уменьшить напряжение. Когда я слушаю музыку, классическую, джаз, рэп или любой другой тип музыки, я наслаждаюсь, я забываю о проблемах повседневной жизни; музыка обеспечивает побег из каждодневных проблем. Напряжение тает, поскольку я принят красотой музыки. Это может помочь мне чувствовать себя спокойным и глубоко смягченным. Во-вторых, музыка затрагивает мои эмоции. Каждый тип музыки устанавливает отличное настроение и изменяет месторождение. Ли мне грустно, расстроенный или запутанный, я слушаю веселую или нежную музыку, и мои изменения настроения. Я не могу сказать, что я предпочитаю слушать некоторый определенный вид музыки все время. Выбор музыки, которую я слушаю, зависит от моего настроения и настроения. Я могу сказать Вам, какую музыку я предпочитаю слушать, когда я чувствую себя подавленным, и это - джаз. Первая причина, почему я делаю это, состоит в том, что у джазовой музыки обычно есть сильный ритм, таким образом это - своего рода музыка, которая наполняет Вас энергией и силой. Во-вторых, это обеспечивает блестящую комбинацию инструментальных мелодий и голоса, который создает незабываемую гармонию. Джаз немедленно уносит меня от моих проблем, наполняет меня надеждой и радостью, даже при том, что ее мелодии часто грустны. Я люблю слушать классическую музыку, также, Во-первых, мне нравится она за сложность музыкальной гармонии, которую она предлагает. Современная популярная музыка, такая как популярность или скала намного более примитивна в мелодии. Во-вторых, классическая музыка эмоций вызывает, намного более сильны и более глубоки; они уносят меня ко времени, когда музыкальная пьеса, которую я слушаю, была составлена.

Вещь, которую мы делаем в наше свободное время для отдыха и удовольствия, называют хобби. Хобби осуществлены для интереса и удовольствия, а не за деньги. Что является хобби для некоторых людей, профессии для других: тестер игры может любить готовить как хобби, в то время как профессиональный повар мог бы любить играть в компьютерные игры. Вообще говоря, человека, который делает кое-что для забавы, не вознаграждения, называют любителем (или человек, увлечённый своим хобби), в отличие от профессионала. Привлечение в хобби может привести к приобретению существенного навыка, знания, и опыта. Много астрономических тел и событий было обнаружено любительскими астрономами. Однако, цель хобби - удовольствие и личное выполнение.

В то время как некоторые хобби кажутся многим людям, тривиальным или скучным, люди, увлечённые своим хобби находят кое-что развлекающее о них. Фактически, что-нибудь может быть хобби, от сбора печатей и настольных игр к выполнению чрезвычайных спортивных состязаний и созданию образцовых самолетов.
