Living in the city,

Living in the country,

Russia is the best.

2. T: We live in a big and beautiful country. Our motherland is Russia. All people of our state live either in the country or in big cities and little provincial towns. But I am sure that nowadays it is not so important where you live.

  1. Now will you listen to 5 speakers.

6. Listen to 5 people speaking about the countryside they live and match them with the place they are describing.

Speaker 1, Sheila

I think that Exmoor National Park is the most beautiful place in the world. The timeless beauty of the scenery is magical and very unique. Once you are in Exmoor, you will see… no traffic, only wildlife; no superstores, only trees. You will hear… no shouting, only birdsong; no car horns, only streams. You will enjoy its peacefulness and feel glad to be there.

Speaker 2, Mike

I spent my childhood in Edithmead and every morning when I woke up, I could see the mountain. On the many occasions that I climbed to the top, I would imagine that I could see the entire world from its summit. It is a place of wonderment, beauty and mythical proportions, It will always remain the centre of my universe, and I welcome any opportunity to revisit whenever I return to England from Canada.

Speaker 3, John

I like the Mendip Hills very much. It’s truly an area of outstanding natural beauty. Here you have it all. You have an area full of historical mystery in the form of Roman ruins, countless ancient forts and castles. There are plenty of cycling and walking routes to enjoy and there is a mixture of everything: forest, marsh, pasture and fields.

Speaker 4, Sue

I think that Goblin Combe, near Bristol and the airport, is absolutely terrific. It’s such an unusual place, a deeply wooded valley on the northern edge of a hill. It has its own ecology, with some fantastic plants and trees, and its character changes depending on the weather and the time of day. It’s also reasonably easy for everyone to reach.

Speaker 5, Chris

I have travelled the road from Milverton to Wivelscombe many times in the 16 years I’ve lived in the area, but the view as you pass the turn for Croford, over the hill and round the bend is magnificent. No matter what the weather, the season or the time of day, the essence of the whole area remains strong and impressive.

Can you tell me why this or that speaker loves his (her) native place?

Express your opinion.

  1. In the end I ask you to divide into 2 groups. Which group can give more arguments for a young family who are really at a loss what place to choose as a place for permanent living. Give them advices.

  2. Group 1: We would advise you to live in the country because in this case you and your family will be able to…

  3. Group 2: We think that it would be better for you to stay in the city as everybody knows that there are a lot of advantages such as …

  4. While finishing our lesson let’s sing one more song about Russia:

Song № 2 “Moscow Suburb Nights”

Not a rustling leaf, not a bird in flight

In the sleepy grove until dawn.

How I love these nights, Moscow suburb nights,

The caress of the waking sun.

The calm rilling stream seems to ebb and flow

Like a silver web of moonlight,

In my heart I hear singing come and go

On this wonderful summer night.

Why this downcast look? Does the rising day

Bring us near the hour when we part?

It’s as hard to keep as to give away

All that presses upon my heart.

Home task:

Write a short letter to your friend - invite him to visit your village and describe the advantages of spending a part of his holidays in your village.

Use the phrases: If you come to our place we can … (name the activities); describe the people living in your village.
