Teacher: I have prepared some additional questions . Here they are:

  1. How old is the British Parliament?

  2. What is the role of the Lord Chancellor?

So, we have learnt about some famous English traditions. But even British Parliament has been changing. Can you name the most radical changes happening in the British Parliament? ( The position of the Lord Chancellor will soon be abolished. Plus the creation of a separate Scottish and Welsh parliament and Northern Irish Assemblies)

These changes are not the only ones happening in British political system. A lot of other issues concerning political life are being discussed in the British society nowadays. Among them we can mention the proposal to a lower the voting age to 16.

Please, read the text “ Lord’s proposal for a voting age” and do ex . 4. Before reading look at the screen, please!

( читают текст, выполняют задание и проверяем)

The information you’ve learnt from the text will help you to cope with our listening task.

But before you listen, look at the statistics about voter turnout in British elections .

  • What is the difference between general, local and European elections?

  • How often, roughly, do the British have elections?

  • Look at the |figures and say what they represent? Has voter turnout increased?

Now listen to two young British people talking about politics. Read the questions and be ready to write down some information while listening.

Now let’s vote. Raise up your hands those:

-who are very interested in politics

- who are not very interested in politics

-who are not interested at all ?

Now look at the screen. You can see the data of the turnout in Russia .

Слайд 16 Russian Voter Turnout in Russia

  • How can you explain these figures?

  • How often do we have elections in Russia?

  • Compare this diagram with the given in your textbooks. Do you think that more or fewer people vote in Russia than in Great Britain?

  • Have you ever voted in an election?

  • Do you think the voting age should be lowered to 16 in Russia? Why? /why not?

So, let’s sum up. Today at the lesson we have been speaking about traditions and changes in the political life of the United Kingdom trying to compare the political activity in Britain and Russia in recent years. What conclusion can you draw?

As for your homework you are to research the answers to the following questions ( ex.8) , then write a short essay of 180-250 words about the way our country is governed. Look at the questions and ask me what isn’t clear?
