(Звучит песня “America the Beautiful”)


Oh, beautiful, for patriot dream

That sees beyond the years,

Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears!

America! America!

God mend thine every flaw;

Cofirm thy soul in self-control

Thy liberty in law!


Прекрасна патриотами,

Ты - зеркало их грез

О городах сверкающих,

Где горя нет и слез!

Америка! Америка!

Господь благослови

От берега до берега

Жизнь в братстве и любви.

    1. Развитие навыков устной речи.

T. Now I see you are ready for our journey. Let’s go and visit all the attractions of this city.


P. Welcome to Washington D.C., my friends. The city stands on the Potomac River and is bordered by the state of Maryland to the North and Virginia to the south. It is not in a state but in the District of Columbia. That’s what the letters DC in the name stand for. As Washington is the capital of the country, it’s not in any state in the USA. Washington is the home of all the government institutions for the whole country: Congress, the White House, the Supreme Court. All the foreign embassies are here too.


T. Do you know, the population of the city is nearly 3 million people. And what kind of building is this?


P. It’s Capitol Hill, and the white building up there is the Capitol, where laws are passed. The Capitol has housed chambers of the Senate and the House of Representatives for almost two centuries. The cornerstone of this impressive building was laid by George Washington himself. It is the tallest building in Washington and the most famous building in the United States, because this is where laws are made. The Capitol is surrounded by a beautiful garden with many trees and flowers.


T. And what do you know about the White House?


P. The White House is the important part of Washington D.C. It is where the President lives and works. George Washington is the only president who did not live there.

John Adams was the first president to live in the White House. He and his family moved into the house in 1800.

The White House has 132 rooms. Visitors may tour some of the first-floor room, second floor is “home” for the president and his family. The White House has many special rooms. It even has a private bowling alley and a movie theater.


T. Can you tell me, who lives in the White House now?


P. Barak Obama with his family.


T. And what do you know about the presidents, the “Fathers of our Country”? Who are they?


P. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.


T. O.K. Now let’s work in groups. Divide in 3 groups and tell about US presidents using these questions as a plan.


1. Which President was he?

2. When and where was he born?

3. What did he do for his nation?


1 group. George Washington is the first President of the USA. He was born on22 February 1732 into the family of a rich Virginia landowner. Washington was chosen to be the head of the American army. Washington set up a lot of political institutions, decided on where to have the American capital.

2 group. Thomas Jefferson was the third president of the USA. He was born in Virginia, on 13 April 1743. He wrote the Declaration of American Independence, which was signed on July 4, 1776.

3 group. Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the USA. He was born in Kentucky, on 2 February 1809. Lincoln taught himself how to read and write. Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed the blacks in the South from slavery.


T. How do the Americans honour their presidents? Are there any monuments in Washington D.C.?


P. Sure, there are lots of them. Look at this four-sided stone structure which looks like an Egyptian obelisk. It honours the “Father of our Country”, General, and the first President of the USA – George Washington.

You can see the Jefferson Memorial in Washington too. It’s a very picturesque place, surrounded by cherry trees. You can see extracts from Jefferson’s most famous works on the walls of the Memorial.


We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”


T. And What about A. Lincoln?

P. There’s the Lincoln Memorial with huge statue of Lincoln in the middle. The Memorial looks like a Greek temple, and it has 36 columns, one for each state at the time of Lincoln’s death. It’s a very important symbol, because Lincoln spent his whole life trying to keep the country united.


T. And what do you know about the National Mall?

P. The national Mall is the area between the Capitol and the Washington Monument. Bike-ways, footpaths, information kiosks are located on the Mall. Nine of the Smithonian museums and Smithonian Information center are located here. The museums contain many historical objects and great works of art.
