Today we’ll discuss a problem: 1. What is it: globalisation? 2. Globalisation: good or bad?
Look at the pictures and say what countries you associate these objects with:
Match the global objects and the names that have come from different countries to the countries of their origin: macaroni America Pushkin Japan sushi China football Albania silk Italy potato England Mother Teresa Russia
Examples of globalisation:
Now work in pairs and write 2-3 phrases to explain the word “globalisation”

Read the text about Globalisation and check if you were right or not: Globalisation refers to the idea that the world is developing a single economy and culture as a result of improved technology and communications and the influence of very large multinational companies. The world is seen as a global village in which all countries depend on each other and seem to be closer together.
The next task for you is to examine two following hypotheses: The first one is: teenagers are natural globalists. They want to know more about other people and places. They are interested in technological developments and want to learn more about technology. They want to experience other cultures.
The second hypothesis is: teenagers are afraid of globalisation. They are not interested in people from other places, don’t want to buy any foreign goods and don’t want to connect with other cultures at all.
The result of our research suggests that teenagers are natural globalists and are largely in favour of globalisation.
+ People have more opportunities to communicate with each other; International understanding increases; The world is developing as a single economy and culture; All countries depend on each other and seem to be closer together; World trade makes everyone richer _ It exploits workers; It degrades the environment; Multinational corporations become more powerful, so they become less accountable for their actions; It is crushing the cultures of smaller nations. Let’s see what advantages and disadvantages Globalisation has: (working in groups)
Which group would you support: globalists or anti-globalists and why? survey
The result of our research: Nearly all of the teenagers were very positive towards technology, cultural exchange, trade, international goods
