  1. Letter to me from 2030
    How are you, my dear? How are you my contemporary, who is living in a time when the deep caravan of time is leading us to a brighter future. Now in the embrace of the mother nature’s incomparable love, I want to keep in touch with you through the white papers in the happy moments when the sun does not move away from the warm faces of people and illiminates the face of mother land with golden rays. My dear I ask you to look at this daft not as an essay written under duress, but as an expression of the heart of a girl who wishes to be more pure in comparison with the dew of the morning for future.
    My name is Gulasal. My surname is Odiljonova. I live in a heavenly country called Uzbekistan which is situated in the heart of Asia. I study at specialized school number 3 which is belonged to Altiarik region in form 10. I really love my motheland. It is counted one of the developing countries around the world. The president of our country Shavkat Mirziyoyev is our pride. He always takes care of us, our contry’s future. Due to the fact that, there are a banch of opportunities are made for the inhabitants clearly, for the youth. Our ancestors said that “The youth is the future” If the country’s youngsters are educated, strong and healthy, the futureof that country us great. For above mentioned reasons there are lots of chances for the modern generation in order to grow up arduosly. New modern schools,universities, sport centers, swimmimng pools, parks, libraries, free intermet zones, kindergartens are erected day by day. We are the future of Uzbekistan. For this we should be well-educated, strong and we add our country one of the well-developed country around the world. We should be like our ancestors Abu Ali Ibn Sina, Al-Kxorazmiy, Amir Temur, Bukhoriy, A. Navoi and like these people. Our ancestors, our history is great. Moreover, our future must be precious. We laways pride of our ancestor and our future should proud of with us. Like I wrote above, we arw the youngsters should study hardly. We must utilize all chances which are given by the govenment of Uzbekistan. I and my coevals never be tired from studying. Now I am grade. And I have alredy choosen my future profession. I have already thought my future plans. Now i want to quoth some of them with you. First of all, I want to graduate my school with honorary diploma. I love all subjects and always try to take high marks at all subject. After this I must enter the Tashkent World Language university in order to achieve my future plans in 2020. I am keen on learning languages. Now I am able to speak 3languages. But in the future I desirw to speak at least 5 languages. I am willed to learn arabic, turkish and so on. In 2025 after graduating the university I must expand my knowledge anroad. For instance, England or America. Because I am fond of to know foreign countries’ culture, tradition and taste their national meals, to see their breathtaking views. The important one is that to know their teaching method. The reason behind is that after come back my motherland I will set up my own business in 2027. Clearly, I will open my own language center. After earning enough money I will create my private school which will be specialized in learning foreign languages. I will bring the style of foreigners’ teaching method in Uzbekistan. Children go to the kindergarten then study at school. I think it is more usuful and interesting for children. Because they could be able to speak 3 or 4 languages when they are 7 language. In 2029 I will buy my own car and god willing I will go to the Makkatulloh with my family members in 2030.
