And today I want to talk not only about the traditional kinds of sport, because you know about them a lot, today I`d like to talk about extreme sports. How can you understand it?
An extreme sport (also called free sport, action sport or adventure sport) is a popular term for certain activities based on a high level of danger. These activities often involve speed, height and a high level of physical exertion.
You know that there are many kinds of extreme sports and we can divide all of them into three groups: water, sky and land. Some pupils have prepared their presentations, watch them and try to remember as much as possible because in the end of the lesson you will do a test about it.
VII. Pupils` presentations with video.
Sky extreme sport
Bungee jumping is a jump from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. The tall structure is usually a fixed object, such as a building or a bridge; but it is also possible to jump from a movable object, such as a hot-air-balloon or helicopter. The first modern bungee jumps were made in 1979 in Bristol, by members of the Oxford University Dangerous Sports Club. Commercial bungee jumping began with the New Zealander, A J Hackett, who made his first jump from Auckland's Bridge in 1986.
Hang gliding is an air sport in which a pilot flies a light aircraft called a hang glider (also known as Delta plane). Takeoff is usually achieved by launching into the air from a cliff or hill. The modern hang gliding became popular in Australia but in the 1970s the sport had spread throughout the United States and Europe.
Skydiving (also known as parachuting) is exiting an aircraft and returning to the earth with the help of a parachute. It can involve a certain amount of free fall, a time during which the parachute has not been deployed. In 1952 sky diving became an international sport.
Water extreme sport
Windsurfing is a surface water sport using a windsurf board, which combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a board usually two or four metres long and a single sail. The history of windsurfing began in 1948 in the USA when Newman Darby invented his first sailboard. And it became popular in 1980s and in1984 it became an Olympic sport.
Modern Surfing came to the USA in the 20th century and became very popular among the young people, especially on the west coast. It is a surface water sport in which the surfer rides a surfboard and face of a wave which is carrying the surfer towards the shore. It is better to go in for surfing in the oceans and in the seas, but sometimes surfers can be seen in the rivers and in the lakes.
Rafting (or white water rafting) is a challenging outdoor activity using an inflatable boats (rafts) for 6 or 12 people to navigate a mountainous river. This sport became popular in the 1970s and it is considered an extreme sport because it can be very dangerous.
Scuba Diving is a swimming underwater activity, using necessary diving equipment.
Scuba divers carry their own source of compressed air in the tank. It allows them to stay underwater longer than with breath-holding techniques used in snorkelling and free-diving.
Free diving is a form of underwater diving without any equipment. It depends on a diver's ability to hold his breath under water.
Land extreme sport
Skateboarding appeared in the late 1940s when surfers in California wanted something to surf when the waves were flat. No one knows who made the first board; These first skateboarders started with wooden boxes or boards with roller skate wheels attached to the bottom.
Parkour (it is also called free running) is a training method which focuses on rational movement in both the natural and urban environments. The focus is to move around obstacles with speed and efficiency. It appeared in France. Today the people who go in for parkour are called tracers. They train to be able to identify more efficient paths. Parkour can be practiced anywhere and tracers train to be able to identify more efficient paths
Mountain biking is a sport which consists of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using mountain bikes. This kind of sport became popular in the 1970s and in 1976 in became an Olympic sport.
I am sure you have been attentive, your task will be to divide sports into different columns: water, land, sky and winter. I think it won`t be difficult for you. The 1 st variants write water and land sports, the 2nd variant –sky and winter sports. Use your handouts.
land: water: sky: winter:
T says, “ I think you agree with me that all kinds of extreme sports are risky and dangerous. But it doesn`t stop many people especially young who like taking risks. Taking risks-what is it?
Taking risks –to do something although you know that something dangerous could happen as a result. What do you think why people take risks?
They take risks because they want to be more confident and independent, to prove and show their courage, to get adrenalin rush, to increase their self- esteem, etc.
X. Discussing (working in groups of three)
T says, “Look at some quotations about risks, choose one you like the best and explain your choice.”

XI. Watching a video
T says, “Now you will watch a video and while watching you have to write five adjectives which can describe the extreme sportsmen.”
An extreme sportsman should be: courageous, brave, strong, healthy, ambitious, risky, hardworking, persistent, curious, fearless, daring, purposeful, confident, professional.
Yes, of course, I think these characteristics are very important not only for sportsmen but for all people.
XIII. Speaking (working in groups)
And to make a conclusion I want you to work in groups and write all advantages and disadvantages of extreme sports.
