P1: My bosom friend is Natasha. She is polite and considerate. We help each other a lot and try not to quarrel. She is sociable and clever. She is an easy-going person. She is an active and energetic person. She can’t sit doing nothing it makes her impatient and I think she is sure to achieve her aim. She is hardworking, organized and does well at school. She is a kind of person who always knows how to have a good time. She has a good sense of humour and never looks moody. She enjoys being the center of attention.

P2: My friend is faithful and reliable. She has a very kind heart. She is easy to do things with. She is very amusing, and she has a very good sense of humour. She is a sunshine for her parents. I respect my friend for her strong will, cheerful and kind character, her intellect and modesty. She is full of ideas and know what and how to do. It’s very pleasant to be with her around. It’s easy to get along with her. We are always very sincere with each other and never tell lies. I can always rely on her because I know that when it’s necessary she will never leave me without help.

P3: My friend is very patient and tolerant. He respects other people and he never interrupts them. He never sneaks on others. His spirit is always bright and happy. He is a good listener and an understanding and friendly person, he never presses his point of view on other people, he is reliable and never loses self-control, he never speaks badly of other people and finds more positive than negative features in every person. I admire him for that.

P4: My friend is a real peacemaker. Her motto is “ The more love you give away, the more you are left with”. She is a true, faithful friend who never betrays and lets you down. I can fully rely on her and trust her completely. One of the most attractive features of her character is honesty. She has a wonderful sense of humour and it’s always fun to be in her company. Surely she is not an angel and has her drawbacks. She is stubborn and hot-tempered at times sometimes she acts impulsively. But she never fails to help or share your sorrows there are the qualities I like about her most of all.

V. Физкультминутка.

Lets play and relax (методика выиграть-выиграть) Спорные ситуации, найти взаимовыгодные решения, не прибегая к хитрости и лжи.)

Teacher: It isn’t easy to be a good friend. But I’m sure you are really good friends. Are you good at communicating. It’s a real art, indeed. Now I’ll give you some situations and you have to find a win/win solution. But remember that truth has seven sides. Never fight evil too jealously, as if it could never touch you ( никогда не борись со злом так, как будто с тобой такого никогда не может произойти).Now divide into three buzz groups. Discuss everything and express your points of view, your opinions.

Situation1: Your friend has come to see you. But you are busy doing your homework. Your actions?

P1 (примерный ответ) We shall either do our homework together, or I’ll suggest that he should play computer games until I have finished my homework.

Situation2: You come to the birthday party. You are a bit late and there is only one vacant seat next to the person you have quarreled with, what will you do?

P2 (примерный ответ): It’s a good chance to make up.

Situation3: What do you do if there is a programme on TV that is interesting only for you?

P1 (примерный ответ): I’ll try to convince my parents that the programme is very important and informative.

P2: I’ll go to my friend who lives next door to us and we’ll see the programme at his place and his parents may see mine, or vise a versa.

Teacher: Thank you, friends. Well done.

VI. Совершенствование навыков аудирования.

Teacher: Now listening comprehension. You task is not to retell the text but express your points of view what this story illustrates.


One of my friends, Vanya, is a very open-hearted person. Once he faced a problem: he was unfaithful to his girl-friend Katya. It is not a very unusual situation in life, but for him it was a big problem. He is a really open and honest person, and he didn’t want to hurt his girlfriend or the other girl either. So he started discussing the problem with his friends. Being open and sociable, he has a lot of friends, most of whom were also Katya’s friends. None of them likes gossip, and nobody told Katya about Vanya’s problem. But as his relations with the other girlfriend were very candid, he told her everything himself. She found out the truth, including the fact that all her friends knew the story. As a result she lost tryst in her boyfriend and almost all her friends.

Примерные ответы учащихся:

P1: I think this story well illustrates my point of view: a person should be discrete. Intimate relations shouldn’t become a matter of discussion with other people even if those people are your best friends, because they haven’t any business in your bedroom.

P2: People shouldn’t know about your relations at home, about your own emotions. And if you make a mistake, you should not forget that it is your own mistake.

P3: If you have friends, they shouldn’t try to correct your mistake, and you shouldn’t lay blame on someone else.

P4: Even though Katya might say that Vanya should have been absolutely sincere with her, it would be much better for her not to know the truth. That truth was destructive for their relations.

P5: Surely, to keep silent would be difficult for Vanya, but it was he who made a mistake, so his difficulties would be a fair punishment.

VII. Подведение итогов урока.

1.Teacher: Well done. Thank you, friends. Now look at the blackboard. You see the picture of honeycomb on it. Honeycomb is a perfect picture of the world. Please fill in its cells.

Перевод песни Полина Гагарина "Миллион голосов".

Мы - люди мира
Разные, но в то же время мы одинаковы
Мы верим, мы верим в мечту

Молимся за мир и исцеление
Я надеюсь, что мы начнем все снова
Мы верим, мы верим в мечту

И если ты когда-то почувствуешь, что любовь увядает
Вместе мы как звезды в небе
Мы можем петь, мы можем сиять

Когда вы слышите, как наши голоса призывают
Вы уже не будете одиноки, о-о-о, Миллион голосов!
Твое сердце, как стучащий барабан
Горит ярче, чем солнце, о-о-о, миллион голосов!

Сейчас, когда весь мир внимает
Из городов и пригородов
Мы верим, мы верим в мечту
И если ты когда-то почувствуешь, что любовь увядает
Вместе мы как звезды в небе
Мы можем петь, мы можем сиять

Когда вы слышите, как наши голоса призывают
Вы уже не будете одиноки, о-о-о, миллион голосов!
Твое сердце, как стучащий барабан
Горит ярче, чем солнце, о-о-о-, миллион голосов!

Когда я смотрю на все эти лица
Я вижу звезды в небе
Мы будем петь, мы будем сиять

Когда вы слышите, как наши голоса призывают
Вы уже не будете одиноки, о-о-о, миллион голосов!

Поют! Поют! О!
Поют! Поют! О!
Поют миллионы голосов!

Поют! Поют! О!
Поют! Поют! О!
Поют миллионы голосов!
Миллионы голосов!

II. Речевая зарядка.

A) Teacher: Agree or disagree with me, use everyday phrases.

What is music for people? This is really a very difficult question to answer.

P1: I fully agree with you. This is really a very difficult question to answer. It goes without saying that music is an important part of our life. Each man’s life begins with the mother’s lullaby which calms him down and introduces him to the beauty of the world.

Teacher: Since this first introduction man’s life is ever surrounded by musical sounds and melodies.

P2: Quite so. Sure. As for me when I was small I sang simple folk songs, and songs of children in the kindergarten. Since four I began to sing popular songs together with the pop-stars, pretending in front of the mirror that I’m on the stage, with a hairbrush instead of a microphone. Later I started a music school where I learnt to play classical music on the piano. Now I’m interested in rock music.

Teacher: I think that music is just a couple of cool cassettes and a Walkman in the pocket.

P3: That’s a fine how do you do. Old wives’ tales. I can’t agree with you. It’s not a couple cool cassettes and a Walkman in the pocket, the latest hi-fi at home or a ticket to the groovy concert of a famous pop singer. Music is varied, because it reflects different human emotions. If we ask several people what kind of music they like, all of them will give different answers. Tastes differ. But the world of music is boundless and everybody can find there something that satisfies his tastes and demands.

Teacher: All people will agree that our world will not be dull without music.

P4: Just on the contrary. All people will agree that our world will be dull without music. We enjoy music because it influences our mood and imagination, reflects our inner state and character, arouses deep emotions and makes us think. It helps us to remove from tiredness and tension or find new strength, get new energy and optimism.

Teacher: I think that not all kinds of music are popular with public.

P5: You can’t be serious. I think that all kinds of music are popular with public: classical and pop music, folk music and jazz, operas, musicals, orchestral performances, rock and roll, heavy metal, rap, hard rock. Music festivals gather large audience.

Teacher: Rock music, or, rather rock-and-roll, appeared in the 80s.

P6: Far from it. Of course, not. I am sorry I think you are absolutely wrong. Can we clear it up? Rock-n-roll appeared in the late 1950s because many jazzmen and bluesmen were not satisfied with the style of music of that time- it was too soft and tidy. The new generation wanted something more energetic and powerful. So, the musicians started looking for new ideas.

Teacher: The first rock music is connected with the names of David Bowie, Elton John, Rod Steward.

P7: Absolutely. That’s true. Besides the first rock music is connected with the names of Elvis Presly, Chuck Berry, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, the Doors. They were innovators, but although their music was beautiful and even sophisticated, it still was like present-day pop music.

III. Результаты анкетирования.

Teacher: Music is a part of our life. We can hear it everywhere: in the parks, in the street, in the shops, on TV, over the radio, in cars, at discos, concerts. A lot of people enjoy music. I agree that music is the universal language of the world. Let me introduce our class correspondent. He interviewed some people from our school. Analyze the results of our interviews.( приложение 1).

Pupil: We interviewed people of different ages. Our questions were: Do you like music? What is your favourite sort of music? Our results: people of all age like music. The first group is schoolchildren at the age from7 to 9: 1- pop music: 2- classical music; the second group is pupils at the age from 10 to 13: 2- rock, 2- pop, 3 –metal, 4- classical; the third group is young people at the age from 14 to 17: 1- rock, 2- pop, 3-rap; our parents: 1- country,2- pop,3- classical and bard; our teachers: 1-pop,2-classical,3- bard and country.

B) Teacher: Now I want you to do some grammar exercises. Take the first card and use the word given in capitals at the end of each line to form a word or a proper tense of a verb that fits in the space in the same line.

Card 1: The 70s (be)(were) a time of revolution in rock music. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath told the world about the ( begin)( beginning) of a new era of hard rock. Music became…( much)( more) sophisticated, the themes were…( accompany)( accompanied) by brilliant…( pass)( passages) on the keyboards, the flute and wind instruments. These…( music)( musicians) tried to combine rock and classical music together and…(they)(their) trend was named art-rock or symphorock.This music was not for the masses, it was too difficult and it never was as…( popularity)( popular) as hard rock.

Card 2: use the verbs in the right grammar tenses ( live, find, be, enter, leave, have, cover, travel, learn, decide, die, make, marry, disappear, understand, do, look, rush, love, capture, free).

The Phantom of the Opera

Only Christine… that the Phantom…an unhappy man who…born so ugly that he…to cover his face with a mask.

Teacher: I shall read you the text. Listen to me attentively, be ready to do the test and retell the text like a snowball.


She’s 13 and she’s already earned 15 million pounds. What has Charlotte Church got that other teenagers haven’t? At 13 Charlotte is like any other normal schoolgirl. She likes pizza, parties and laughing with her friends. But she is different from them in one important way. She has an extraordinary voice and is the latest discovery of the music industry. It may come as a surprise that she sings songs from opera and the works of classical composers rather than pop music. Her first album “ Voice of an Angel”, was a big success and she is the youngest solo artist to enter the Top US album chat.whenever she performs, she’s electrifying. Charlotte is everybody’s record producer’s dream. Not only has she a remarkable voice but she is also photogenic and has an interesting personality. Charlotte is the only child of the working class parents from a suburb of Cardiff in South Wales and they are proud of their daughter. Her father works for a security firm and her mother gave up her job working for the local council to accompany her daughter on tour. This mean she’s not worried about her when she is abroad.

It was a lucky chance that made Charlotte famous. She had tried to get singing parts in theatre musicals and had almost given up hope, when she appeared on a talent show on television.

V. Физкульминутка.

Teacher: It’s time to relax. Let’s sing the song by the Beatles “ Yestarday”

VI Совершенствование навыков говорения.

Teacher: Let’s continue our conversation about music in the form of discussion. Help me please. Don’t be passive, be active, argue with me, express your points of view.

Teacher: Many people can’t understand classical music. For them the music of “ Nut cracker” is dull. What about you?

P1: Let me think. I find this music the closest to my soul. Most of the people of my age would think I’m a bit mad to love Strauss, Mozart, Back, Verdi, Grieg, Chopin in place of Eminem or Taty. My friend often says: “ It’s much easier and fun to be with the crowd”. Yes, may be, I would agree with her. But why must I be like somebody else and not somebody else be like me.

P2 I fully agree and I want to add. In my opinion classical music is relaxing. As many psychologists say: “ Bach helps to cope with nervousness; Vivaldi is excellent to be listened to by a pregnant woman because it makes her feel calm and satisfied.

Teacher: I think that classical music has not been living for centures. I wonder what you think about it.

P3: Strange, rather strange. Certainly not. OK. Disco is a sort of seasonal music, but classical music has been living for centures. It’s not true that I hate all modern music. I have a couple of pop or rock songs that I like, but I think all this music can’t be called great. And I can’t believe it will be needed 200-300 years later.

P4: I thought about it many times. I know what you mean. My thoughts may seem a bit old-fashioned,

But is it not wonderful to come home after a busy day, make a cup of tea, plunge into a soft armchair, and listen to a piece of Vivaldi’s “ Four Seasons”. Yes, we live in a cruel world, very different from the world which surrounded Vivaldi, but why can’t we come into contact with that atmosphere?

P5: I want to object. I can’t agree with you. I find classical music to be dull. But I enjoy modern remakes of classics. For example, I like the way Vanessa Mae plays.

Strange things happened at the Opera House but the company knew whose fault it was: the Phantom of the Opera. Christine loved Raoul de Chagny but she understood t prevented Christine from hat they had no future because a French aristocrat couldn’t marry a girl whose parents had been humble people.

This group was formed at the end of the 50th. John, Paul, George, Ringo were amazing and talented boys who made a unique contribution to music and it made a revolution in pop history. The boys composed songs for the youth. Their songs seemed more musical and more exciting than others. The Beatles showed professionalism and made impressive figures on the stage. Their songs and unusual sense of humour drew the people’s attention. Girls loved the Beatles and the young men tried to look like them. Newspapers, television focused on the group and made it famous. A hysteria that was called “ Beatlomania” swept Britain and soon afterwards, America. The group broke up more than 30 years ago. But their songs will live forever. ( приложение 4)

Pupil 3:

Tchaikovsky is one of the most famous Russian composers. His name is known all over the world. He was born May7, 1840 in Votkinsk, Vyatka region in the family of an engineer. His father was 45 and his mother was 26 when he was born. All his life Tchaikovsky adored his mother and two younger brothers Modest and Anatoly, who were twins. They understood each other and had very close relations. Tchaikovsky started to play the piano and compose music when he was very young. But he worked for a time as a clerk in the Ministry of Justice, though music was his true passion. In his early twenties he completely turned to a life of music. Tchaikovsky was one of the charter students of the St. Petersburg Conservatory which Rubinstein founded. At twenty-six he became one of the first professors at the Moscow Conservatory. As it often noted, Tchaikovsky was Russian first professional composer. And as a composer, Tchaikovsky was distinguished by versatility of his talent- the ability to compose everything from operas and symphonies to chamber music and liturgical music. By any measure, Tchaikovsky has worked very impressively: 6 symphonies, 10 concerts and pieces for solo instruments, over 20 orchestral works, 9 operas, 3 ballets, over dozen pieces composed for special occasions. The classical Russian ballet has its beginning in Tchaikovsky’s works. The ballets “ The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake” are the most popular works in the golden treasure of our musical theatres. Unlike most composers Tchaikovsky was able to enjoy some of his fame while still alive, travelling in Russia, Europe, the USA in his later years to conduct his works. For example, he participated in opening of the Carnegie Hall in 1891. The last year of his life he was elected the Honorable doctor of the Cambridge University. Tchaikovsky died at the age og 55 in 1893 in St. Petersburg. He is an outstanding composer. The future generations will enjoy and love his music as much as we do. ( приложение)
