A. Tim’s 12 years old and he never knows what to do in his free time. His grandfather told
him that when he was a boy he spent lots of time collecting stamps that he kept in an
album, or reading books. Tim doesn’t think those were fun hobbies. His dad said to him
that when he was 12, he built model aeroplanes or wrote letters to his pen friends. Tim
doesn’t think people had interesting things to do in their free time in the past.
B. When you are a teenager you have a lot of things that you have to do – go to school every
day, do your homework when you get back from school every afternoon, help your
parents around the house at the weekends, so when teenagers do have a bit of free time,
when do they like to do? Hobbies? No. most young people say they prefer spending time
with friends doing things like playing football or listening to music than doing any other

these things but think you aren’t very good at them? When you have some free time, why

Milton’s favourite hobby is going out to restaurants! Kaylee likes food but she only likes
good food. This means she only visits really good places when she wants a meal. Last
week, Kaylee went to the new restaurant in Camden Square with her parents. She said the
food was fantastic, the music was great, and that she had a lot of fun.
E. A.G. Bailie Secondary school’s got a great school orchestra. It plays everything from jazz
to hip hop and it is looking for new members. Do you play an instrument like the guitar,
violin or piano really well? Do you want to wear a uniform and play at local concerts?
Practice is every day after school from three to five o’clock. Being in an orchestra is a
fun way to spend your free time. Interested? Go to Ms Smith’s class during the break
F. More young people that ever before now own a camera. Lots of teenagers use their
mobile phones to take pictures, others are lucky enough to have a digital camera. Either
way, it’s easy to take great photos these days. The camera does all the work for you and
digital photography is quite a cheap hobby. It can also be lots of fun. If you’re worried
that your photos aren’t very good, there are lots of books with advice on getting the best
out of your camera. So what are you waiting for?
G. The age of technology has made a big different to the way young people spend their free
time. Instead of sitting at home reading books or spending tie outside playing different
sports, huge members of teenagers now spend their time at home in their room. They are
usually sitting on a chair in front of a computer screen, often playing games with people
they have never met. Parents don’t always think this is a good use of free time but
