Reading comprehension

The United States of America

The United States of America, the USA, is a large country stretching across the middle of the North America. In 1620, a group of people left England for America. They had decided to make homes for themselves in the new land across the ocean. They hoped they would have a better life there. After a stormy voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, their small ship, the “Mayflower”, reached the shores of the new land. Those early settlers built their first colonies and began to explore the new country which they called New England. As their settlements were called “colonies”, the people were called “colonists”. Soon more and more European settlers came and more colonies were formed.

The American colonies grew bigger and bigger, they prospered, but they were for a long time ruled by England, and all the riches of the new country belonged to England.

In 1776 the thirteen young American colonies united and began a war against England for freedom and independence, which was called the War of Independence. They won the victory and a new nation was born which became the United States of America. July 4, (1776), is still celebrated as “the birthday” of the American nation, and is called Independence Day.

The leaders of the new state decided they would form a republic which would have no king but would have a President, who was to be chosen every four years.

George Washington (1732-1799), who had led the Americans in the war, became the first President. He is now called “The Father of the United States”.

The new country was explored. Endless plains, great mountains and deserts were discovered. Settlers from all the countries of Europe moved to the west until the nation reached the Atlantic to the Pacific. One by one new states were added to the first thirteen.

Today the USA consists of more than 50 states. The capital is Washington.

One night, soon after we entered the tropics, a terrible storm began. The strong wind carried away two of our masts and washed off everything that was on the deck. Only one small boat remained. For five days the storm raged. On the sixth morning we saw land ahead. It was an island surrounded by a reef of coral on winch the waves broke.

The ship could not reach the shore, and the captain ordered to get the boat. "We shall be on the rocks in less than half an hour." he said.

The men worked in silence, because they felt that there was a little hope to sail to the shore in such a small boat.

The men were already ready with the boat, when suddenly a great wave fell on the deck. At the same moment the ship struck, the foremast broke off close to the deck and went over the side, carrying the boat and men along with it. The next moment we were in the wild sea. Then I didn't feel anything.

When I recovered I could hardly open my eyes. I found myself lying on the soft grass, with Jack and Peter on his knees near me. He was carefully watered my head and trying to stop the blood that flowed from a wound in my head.

Slowly my thoughts became clear again and I remembered everything.

"But what happened to our ship. Jack?" I asked my friend. "'What happened to the captain and the sailors? Is anybody else alive?'"

Jack shook his head sadly. "I have little hope that they are saved. They were too many for one boat."

There was a long silence. We thought about our poor friends and felt very unhappy.

"What shall we must do now, Jack?" I asked at last.

"We must find a place for a camp first, and then explore the island. This island, it seems, will be our home for some time, and we must try to make ourselves as comfortable as possible, we must find food, water and a good shelter. There may be people on the island and we don't know if they will be friendly or unfriendly to us. We shall soon find that out. Come on! Be careful! Never say die!"

Краткое описание документа:

Данное пособие было разработано мною на основе учебника для 6 классов школ с углубленным изучением английского языка (авторы Л.В. Хрусталёва  В.Н. Богородитская), с целью объеденения всего граммматического материала в единую методическую базу. Тесты распределены по юнитам и имеют разноуровневую сложность. Тестовые задания направлены на проверку усвоения как лексического, так и грамматического материала. Возможно кому то это пригодится в качестве отдельных раздаточных тестовых материалов. Желаю всем творческих успехов и талантливых учеников!
