Záujmy, koníčky a voľný čas

The leisure time means, how people spend their free time. It´s usually time for having fun or relaxing. We can divide leisure activities into two groups:
1.) Actively spending free time. (Doing sport, working in the garden…)
2.) Passively spending free time. (Watching TV, reading a book, playing computer games…)

ACTIVITIES - aktivity
Doing summer sports like cycling, swimming, playing tennis, golf, football etc.
Go out with friends to the concert, to the cinema, to the theatre, to the pub for a beer etc.
Some people cook or make big barbecue party for friend and family.
Walking in the nature, hiking, go climbing, harvesting mushrooms, gardening.
Doing winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, playing ice-hockey.
Going to the fitness centre to work out or cycling.

Men can do some work around the house. Woman can decorate the garden or house.
Some people learn in their free time. They usually study languages or IT technologies.
People who are tired of work usually watch TV, read books, play computer games or do the crosswords.

AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES – mimoškolské aktivity
Some students joint sport clubs, some visit the library and study. Some of activities are mostly paid and people do them regularly. For example: language courses, musical instrument, drawing, ballet, football, hockey, tennis, dance, singing, driving course.
Others spend their leisure time at home alone, with siblings, friends, or schoolmates.
Students usually want to earn some money in their free time so they can take a part-time job. They earn money to spend them for clothes, travelling, parties, new experience, new contacts, future studies or they just want to be independent from their parents.

Nowadays people have less free time more duties and they sometimes work at after working hours. They just want to relax with their devices TV, computer, mobile, and they sometimes go to the gym because it is kind of modern lifestyle.

Free time activities depend also on our age.
1.) Children play with friends outside in the garden or playground some ball games, or sing, draw, watch TV cartoons
