«Where and Why People Travel»
These days people travel a lot. They travel at home and abroad. They want to see new places and to meet new people. Sometimes they travel on business, but often they go to places on holidays. In summer a lot of people like to go to the sea or stay at the lake or near the river. There they can enjoy swimming, boating and fishing and stay in the sun. In winter people sometimes go to the mountains to ski. It is always nice to be in the forest. Forests, lakes, seas and mountains are very beautiful places. People often make pictures of the places they visit and show them to their friends. When people go abroad they usually visit interesting places, castles, old towns and museums. People travel by plane, by train, by car or by sea. Travelling can be very pleasant or not very pleasant but it is usually interesting.

(видеофильм о музее)
After watching this film answer my question: “ What familiar celebrities were there in the film?’
Madam Tussaud’s Museum is very popular all over the world. There are wax models of famous people, both living and dead, from every walk of life (actors, musitions, politicians, sportsmen, public figures, pop stars). There is no other place where you can see all the celebrities (famous people) at once. The wax figures are standing and sitting, and sometimes even moving and talking. Such figures are controlled by the computers. And they are especially popular with the visitors. There are several Halls at the Museum. There is a special place for the Royal Family. You can see Prince Charls, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip. New models are being produced all the time. It costs about 40,000 dollars to make a wax figure. This museum is the most talked about wax museum in the world.
Well, our excursion has come to the end and it’s time to sum up all your knowledge and all the information about the sights of London.
