Teacher: My dear friends, I'm glad to see you at our " Knowledge Club."
The theme of today's meeting is "Russia." Russia is a very large and rich country. Let's try to prove it.
Pupil 1 - Sure. Russia is my country. It is the biggest country in the world. Russia is situated on two continents: Europe and Asia. The Urals form a natural border between the continents. Russia is a very rich country. There are many mountains, rivers, lakes and forests in my country, some of which are very beautiful.
Pupil 2 - What river is the longest in Europe?
Pupil 3 - The Volga is the longest river in Europe. It flows into the Caspian Sea.
Seas and oceans wash Russia in the north, south, east and west. The Black Sea is in the south, the Baltic Sea is in the west. The Arctic Ocean washes my country in the north and in the east is the Pacific Ocean.
Pupil 2 - You are right. I want to add some facts. The plant and animal worlds of my country are also very rich. There are a lot of different animals, birds and plants in our forests, fields and mountains. Russia is also rich in gold, silver and other minerals
Pupil 1 - I think it is time to speak about Russian symbols.
Pupil 2 - That's right.
One Russian symbol is the Russian national flag. This flag has three wide stripes on it. The stripes are white, blue and red. The upper stripe is white, the middle stripe is blue and the red stripe is at the bottom. These colours have always been symbolic in Russia: white - noble and sincere, blue - honest and devoted - devoted to friends, family and to the country .The red colour has always meant love and bravery.
Pupil 3 - Russia has a double - headed eagle as its symbol. It was introduced in Russia in 1497 by Tsar Ivan III.
Pupil 4 - And the other symbol of Russia which all Russian people know and love is the birch tree. You can find these trees everywhere. People sing beautiful songs with poetic words about birch trees and plant them near their houses. In old Russian towns people often call young lovely girls little birch trees (beryozka, beryozon'ka).
Pupil 1.- What can you say about the capital of Russia?
Pupil 5 - As you know, the capital of our country is Moscow. It is more than 800 years old. You can see a lot of new, modern houses in it. The city is situated on seven hills. On one of them is the Kremlin with its beautiful red walls and famous towers. Moscow was founded by Yuri Dolgoruky in 1147. We say that Moscow is a port of five seas. As the Moscow - Volga Canal links Moscow with the Baltic, White, Caspian and Black seas and the Sea of Azov. Moscow is a cultural centre. There are a lot of theatres, museums, libraries and cinemas in Moscow. The Bolshoi Theatre is one of the famous theatres all over the world. If you are fond of painting you can go to the Tretyakov Art Gallery or to the Pushkin Fine Arts Museum. One of the highest buildings in Moscow is the State Moscow University. It was founded in 1755 by the great scientist Mikhail Lomonosov.
Pupil 2 - Now look at the names of the cities and say when they were founded.
· St. Petersburg - 1703
· Yaroslavl - 1010
· Vladimir - 1108
· Rostov - 862
· Pskov - 903
· Suzdal - 1024
· Novgorod - 859

3. Yes, he was sure that he could easily win the war against Russia.
4. That was so.
5. Yes, Smolensk was the "key city" of Russia. Russian people called Smolensk the "key city" because it locked the road to Moscow.

Pupil 3 - Have you ever heard the names of Suvorov and Kutuzov?
- Alexander Suvorov and Michael Kutuzov are two famous generals.
Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov was born in 1729.
He was a noble, honest man, devoted to his country and his people. He took part in many wars. He loved his soldiers and they loved him. His soldiers were never hungry and his officers took care of the soldiers. Suvorov taught his soldiers and officers to be brave. His soldiers were never afraid of the enemy.
Pupil 7 - Michael Kutuzov was Suvorov's pupil. He was born in 1745 in St' Petersburg. His father was an engineer in the Russian army. Kutuzov was a brave and honest officer. During the war of 1812 Kutuzov fought a lot of battles. The famous battle of Borodino was the first Russian victory of that war. Napoleon ran away from Russia.
Pupil 8 - Yes, Russia is a rich country. It is rich in forests and mountains, rivers and lakes. There are many important cities, factories and industrial plants all over the country. But it is true to say that Russia is most famous for its people. Russian people are talented. We can name many of those who are well - known all over the world. In America and Australia, in Europe and Asia people read novels by Anton Chekhov, Leo Tolstoy, Feodor Dostoevsky, Alexander Pushkin.
Russian people are kind, open and very hospitable.
