The 1st round

We begin our traditionally competition in English language. I’m very glad to see you again. Our games will be connected with the USA this year:

- “National American Symbols”

- “Amazing facts about American cities”

- “People and their actions”


I. Quiz about the USA 20 POINS


II. Listening practice: Washington D. C. is not the capital of the USA but also the most interestingly designed city in America.

  1. The place for the capital was chosen by George Washington, the first US President. He wanted the capital city to be grand and impressive and, most of all, well planned. The capital has some symbols: a flag, a seal, a river Potomac, a goddess Themis

  2. Pierre Charles L’Enfant designed a plan of the new city. He created a plan based on grand old European cities like Paris, Athens and Rome. Unfortunately, L’Enfant argued a lot with commissioners and was soon fired. As the result, the design that wee see today is something of mish –mash.

  3. The map of the city. L’Enfant designed Washington as a circle. In the centre were the Capitol building and the White House which were situated on the natural hills. The streets of Washington D.C. were named with the letters of the alphabet to the north and south of the Moll and numbers to the east and west.


  1. The Capital is a building where the US Congress meets. This impressive building is 87.6 metres high and seen from any part of Washington. It is also a museum of American art and history. The United States Congress was established on March 4, 1789. The Capitol Grounds cover approximately 274 acres (1.11 km²), with the grounds proper consisting mostly of lawns, walkways, streets, drives, and planting areas. Up to four U.S. flags can be seen flying over the Capitol. Two flagpoles are located at the base of the dome on the East and West sides. These flagpoles have flown the flag day and night since World War I. The other two flagpoles are above the North (Senate) and South (House of Representatives) wings of the building, and fly only when the chamber below is in session.

  2. Next to the Capitol is the Library of Congress. The Library of Congress was built by Congress in 1800, and was housed in the United States Capitol for most of the 19th century. After much of the original collection had been destroyed during the War of 1812, Thomas Jefferson sold 6,487 books, his entire personal collection, to the library in 1815. The collections of the Library of Congress include more than 32 million cataloged books and other print materials in 470 languages; more than 61 million manuscripts; the largest rare book collection in North America, including the rough draft of the Declaration of Independence, a Gutenberg Bible (one of only four perfect vellum copies known to exist); over 1 million US government publications; 1 million issues of world newspapers spanning the past three centuries; 33,000 bound newspaper volumes; 500,000 microfilm reels; over 6,000 comic book titles; films; 5.3 million maps; 6 million works of sheet music; 3 million sound recordings; more than 14.7 million prints and photographic images including fine and popular art pieces and architectural drawings.

  3. The White House has not always been white. Originally it was grey. The first President to live in the White House was John Adams, but he didn’t like it very much. Now the White House has 6 floors (two are basements), 132 rooms, 32 bathrooms, 147 windows, 412 doors, 12 chimneys, 3 elevators.


  1. The Supreme Court building, one of the last Greek classical structures built in DC, isn’t as iconic as the Capitol or the White House. The seated figures in front of the building represent the female Contemplation of Justice and the male Guardian of Law; panels on the 13,000lb bronze front doors depict the history of jurisprudence. The interior grand corridor and Great Hall are no less impressive. Downstairs is an exhibit on the history of the court and a striking statue of John Marshall, fourth chief justice.


  1. The Washington monument, made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss, is both the world's tallest stone structure and the world's tallest obelisk, standing 555 feet 51⁄8 inches (169.294 m). Inserted into the interior walls are 193 memorial stones presented by individuals, societies, cities, States, and nations of the world. Attached to in independent iron framework, flights of 896 steps surround an elevator which takes visitors to the observation level, where they can gaze over the city from the monument's pyramidion windows.

  2. The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is a presidential memorial in Washington, D.C. that is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father and the third President of the United States. The neoclassical building was designed by John Russell Pope. The interior of the memorial has a 19-foot (5.8 m) tall, 10,000 lb (4336 kg) bronze statue of Jefferson by sculptor Rudulph Evans showing Jefferson looking out toward the White House. This statue was added four years after the dedication. The interior walls are engraved with passages from Jefferson's writings. Most prominent are the words which are inscribed in a frieze below the dome: "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

  3. The Lincoln Memorial is an American memorial built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. he building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, The Gettysburg Address and his Second Inaugural Address. (две огромных каменных плиты: на одной выгравирован текст второго инаугурационного обращения Линкольна, а на другой — его Геттисбергская речь). Две настенные росписи аллегорически представляют принципы свободы, справедливости, единения, братства и благотворительности. Композиционно здание символизирует Союз. По его периметру проходят 36 колонн — именно столько штатов объединилось к моменту смерти Линкольна. Названия 48 штатов (а именно столько их было к 1922 году — моменту завершения строительства мемориала) выбиты вдоль внешней стены здания. Табличка с названием двух последних присоединившихся штатов — Аляски и Гавайев — находится на подходах к мемориалу. В помещении мемориала находится статуя Линкольна: сидящий президент обращен лицом к монументу Вашингтона и Капитолию. Статуя Линкольна 19 футов (5.79 м.) в высоту и весит 175 тонн.

  4. The U.S. National World War II Memorial is a National Memorial dedicated to Americans who served in the armed forces and as civilians during World War II. Consisting of 56 pillars and a pair of arches surrounding a plaza and fountain, it is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C

  5. The Smithsonian Castle located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. behind the National Museum of African Art, houses the Smithsonian Institution's administrative offices and information center. The building is constructed of red Seneca sandstone in the faux Norman style (a 12th-century combination of late Romanesque and early Gothic motifs) and is appropriately nicknamed The Castle.

  6. The Pentagon is the biggest office building in the world, but you can reach any place in the building within 7 minutes. It is the United States Department of Defense. The Pentagon is has the most floor area of any building in the world. It has a total floor area of 6,500,000 sq ft (604,000 m2). Offices are 3,700,000 sq ft (344,000 m2). Approximately 23,000 military and civilian employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel work in the Pentagon. It has five sides, five floors above ground, two basement levels, and five ring corridors per floor with a total of 17.5 mi (28.2 km) of corridors.

- Фраза "Никогда не откладывай на завтра то, что можешь сделать сегодня" принадлежит Томасу Джефферсону.

- В Пентагоне вдвое больше туалетов, чем необходимо в действительности. Пентагон был построен в 1940 году, когда в Виргинии всё ещё действовал закон, согласно которому туалеты для белых и чёрных должны были быть раздельными. Правда, таблички «для белых» и «для чёрных» повешены так и не были благодаря вмешательству президента Рузвельта.
