Teacher / Students

So, if you are fine and all are present, let’s start our work. Don’t forget that we are going to evaluate your work during the lesson. For that purpose you have a self-evaluation form at the end of your workbook. Let’s look at it. As you see, each activity is given a certain amount of points. So participating in different activities you can count your points. At the end of the lesson we’ll sum up all your results and you’ll get your marks. Work as hard as you can.

Teacher / Students

T: We live in the 21st century, in the period of speed, rapid changes in politics,

business and technology. Life is so unpredictable that we can’t imagine what

other surprises it will give us. But in order to get in touch with all the changes

we should possess information. What is information today? Give all possible associations with the word “information”. Comment your answers.

T: Who is able nowadays to get up-to-date information?

3. Мотивация учебной деятельности учащихся

T: Serious changes that took place in the world as in the sphere of foreign economic relations as in the field of culture, trade and economic development cause a high interest to learning foreign languages, especially English. Although such technical gadgets as telephone, fax, Internet play an important role in our everyday life and business, it seems almost trite to say that a business letter stays one of the most widely used forms of professional communication between nations in the twenty-first century. That is why it is very important to know the rules of writing business letters.
