Greeting and Aim
T. Good morning, dear pupils! I am pleased to see you
at the lesson! Our topic today is “Travelling around the world”. By the end of the lesson you should be able to participate in common conversational exchanges about travelling, work in groups and pairs, talk about travelling using the topical vocabulary.
T. Well, let’s get started. First open your hearts to verses! I hope you will enjoy it.
Come with me to Pasadena!
Today at ten we will arrive.
I have been in Pasadena
For a great deal of my life.
Come with me to Pasadena
If you want to have some fun,
Watch the dancing seniorinas
In the heat of the sun!
When I woke up today
I heard someone say,
Girl, it is raining now,
And they’re expecting snow…
And this morning I knew
What I had to do:
Take the next plane
And finally go
We are going to Greece,
Take a trip to Paris
To escape from the
Stress and the strain,
Saving money each day
There must be a way
To get out
In this gather again!
(Karen and Alice Maywood)

Christopher Columbus is a very famous traveler.
He was born in Italy, but he lived in Spain for a long
time. He was a seaman and he dreamed about discovering
new ways to India where people found a
lot of gold.
