Ход урока

l Org. part:

  • How are you feeling today?
    Has anything wonderful happened with you these days?
    Have you seen any wonders recently?

We are going to continue our series of lessons about the wonders of the world. We ‘ll revise seven ancient and new wonders, watch a video about one of the wonders of Ossetia and by the end of the lesson you’ll have been able to speak about it.

We‘ll also consolidate our grammar acquisitions i.e. adverbial clauses and learn some new details about purpose clauses.

ll Phonetic Drill:

Let’s begin with phonetic exercises:

From wonder into wonder existence opens.
Time works wonders.
Be aware of wonder. 

When we come across wonders both natural and manmade, they have the capacity to surprise us. Have a look at the “surprise words”, pronounce them and name the odd word with a different vowel sound:
Though they are synonyms, they have different shades of meaning.
What does ‘stun’(
puzzle startle shock) imply?

lll Lexical Drill:
What words do we resort to when we want to express our impression of wonders?

What images spring to mind when you hear the phrase ‘Seven Wonders of the World’?
Let’s match the pictures with the names of the wonders.


- As you know 7 wonders of antiquity inspired the compilation of many other lists of attractions by successive generations.

Who organised the selection of the New 7 Wonders? (a Swiss-based non-profit corporation New Open World Corp.)
Let’s remember them. Click on the correct answer and say why it is a wonder.

Purpose clauses. The most common type of purpose clause is a “to” infinitive phrase.
Instead of using a “to” infinitive phrase it is possible to use
in order to or so as to.

Another type of purpose clause begins with in order that or so that. These clauses usually have a modal verb. We use in order that or so that when the subject of the subordinate clause is different from the subject of the main clause.

If the doer of the action is one and the same,you use so as to in order to.

Ex. 36, p 157


Our republic also has a list of wonders and I’ve chosen one of  the most impressive manmade structures of Ossetia. Let’s learn some words:

necropolis - a cemetery, especially one attached to an ancient city.

crypt - an underground room where the bodies of dead people are buried

ridge – a long, narrow chain of hills or mountains

navigable - deep enough and wide enough to afford passage to ships

departed – a dead person, especially one who has died recently

plague - a highly infectious, usually fatal, epidemic disease

secular - not religious, or not connected with religion

Epiphany - one of twelve basic (great) orthodox holidays when people take dips in icy cold water - a ceremony believed to cleanse them of sin and heal their illnesses.
