II. Presentation of the new lesson. Dear boys!
Today we have an unusual lesson. This lesson combines two school subjects -English and Geography. You have been studying Geography for several years and know many facts about different countries. Today you are studying Australia at your Geography lesson and we are studying Australia at our English lesson. That is why we combined both English and Geography into one lesson. Our lesson is unusual and the country we'll speak about is unusual too. Why is it unusual? We hope that you'll listen to everything very attentively and understand that Australia is really unique. And now let me introduce a group of our guests from Australia. They work at the tourist agency and want to invite you to their country. But they don't speak Russian, so the pupils from your English group will be the interpreters. Let's start.
The slogan of the lesson: I'M AUSTRALIA!
I'm a child of a dreamtime people,
Part of the land, like an old gum tree
I'm the river softly singing
Chanting our songs on the way to the sea,
I awakened here when the Earth was new,
There was emu, wombat, kangaroo,
No other man of a different hue.
I'm the land and this land is me.
