Teacher: Let`s begin with the geographical situation of the UK.
Student 1 (Рассказывает у карты): The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the UK) occupies the territory of the British Isles. It consists of four main countries, which are England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Their capitals are London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. The UK is an island state: it is composed of some 5.500 islands, large and small. The two main islands are: Great Britain and Ireland. They are separated by the Irish Sea.
The UK is one of the world’s smaller countries. Its area is 244.100 square kilometers. The UK is washed by the Atlantic Ocean, the North Sea, the English Channel and the Strait of Dover.
The population of the United Kingdom is over 57 million people.
The speak English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish.
The flag of the United Kingdom, known as the Union Jack, is made u of three crosses. The upright Red Cross is the cross of St. George, the patron saint of England. The white diagonal cross is the cross of the St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. The red diagonal cross is the cross of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
Teacher: A group of student from Russia is going to visit the UK
At Tourist Information Office (Диалог между туристическим агентом и туристами)
Student3: Hi, everybody!
Student4: Good afternoon!
Travel Agent: Hello! Nice to meet you! Can I help you?
Student1: Yes, we want to go to the UK. Could you give us some information about England, Scotland, Wales and North Ireland?
Travel Agent: Please take these leaflets and choose the country you want to visit.
Student2: Thank you.
I think we should start out tour with England, and of course, London S. Johnson wrote “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life” I agree with this statement.
Student3: So do I.
Travel Agent: Attention please! The group of students from Russia is awaited at the bus stop. Thank you.
Guide: Ladies and gentlemen! I welcome you to London. My name is _________ I’m your guide. I work with the British authority in London – where I live. I’m very pleased to meet you at this double – Decker bus. Let’s start our sightseeing tour.
London is the capital of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is one of the biggest cities is the world. It is situated on the river Themes. About 7 million people live here. London is more than two thousand years old. As you know it consists of four parts: the City, the West End, the East End and Westminster.
Student1: Excuse me. May I say a few worlds about the city?
Student1: London’s history began with began with the Romans. They made Londinium the centre of the British province. London was an important city in Roman times. Like all big cities, London has many big parks full of trees, flowers and grass. London is a cosmopolitan city. People of all nations live here.
Guide: Well, I see you know much about London. Thanks a lot. We begin out tour with Buckingham Palace. Here we can watch the changing of the Guard.
Student2: Sorry, for interrupting you I’ve seen this ceremony on TV. I know it takes place every day at 11.30 am. During the summer. For the rest of the year it is every other day. Thirty guardsmen march to the Palace and take the place of the old guard. The guardsmen wear tradition Uniform – a red coat and a black helmet.
Guide: You`re right. Buckingham Place is a symbol of the British monarchy. It was built in the 18 th of century, but now it is the home of the English Queen Elizabeth II. She is directly descended from Saxon King Egbert, who united England under his rule in 829. The full royal title in Britain is: “Elizabeth the Second, by the grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, «Defender of the Faith». The title thus reflects the union of the kingdom of England and Scotland in 1707, the union with Ireland in 1801 and the emergence of the Commonwealth.
Student 3: It’s so unusual to have a queen or a king as the Head of the state. It sounds like a fairy tale. From the newspapers I learnt that every year the Queen opens Parliament. Million of people watch her on TV. She leaves Buckingham Palace with a lot of soldiers on horses and many of the important people in the country wait for her in the Houses of Parliament. In Parliament she talks, and the head. She is the most famous woman in Britain and she Head of the Church of England. She is really a very important woman.
Guide: I see know many interesting facts about the UK. But now look at the left, please. You can see… what building is it? It is the House of Parliament, the seat of the British government. The House of Parliament is among the most admired building in Europe. They are also called the Palace of Westminster. There you can see the famous Tower Clock – Big Ben. This clock is named after Sir Benjamin Hall ender whose direction the construction of the clock was conducted. People call the clock, Big Ben but the name really belongs to the bell on which the clock strikes the hours. A light at the top of the Clock Tower shows when Parliament is sitting at night.
Student4: I’d like to recite a poem about Big Ben which we learnt at school.
Tick – tock Day and Night
Tick – tock With all its might
This is Big Ben Big Ben the clock
Big Ben is a clock Says: “tick – tock”.
Student5: As a Future lawyer I’d like to say a few worlds about the political systems of the UK. The Queen is official Head of the state but she doesn’t have such power as in the past. As in other countries there are there branches of power in GB; they are legislative executive and judicial. The Queen appoints the Prime – Ministers – the Head of the government policies and coordinates government departments. The Parliament consists of two House: The House of Lords with 1.100 permanent non – elected members and the House of Commons which include 650 MP. The functions of the House of Commons are to make laws and to discuss political problems. The House of Lords examines and revises bills from the House of Commons; it also can delay bills for one year. As for people, they can only elect the members of the House of Commons.
Guide: Good of you. Your know ledge of the political systems is great. And now… Trafalgar Square is straight ahead. As you understand Trafalgar Square is in the center of London. It was built in 1828. In the middle of it you can see Nelson’s Column, which is over fifty meters high. The statue on the top is in memory of Lord Horatio Nelson. Who won the famous sea battle at Trafalgar?
Student6: I can add that this column is cleaned once every seven years. It is really a very difficult job as they have to climb to the top and clean all the mess the pigeons have made on the statue. Trafalgar Square has become famous as a rolling point for all kinds of demonstration, marches and political meetings.
Guide: I’m fully agree with you. And now you can see St. Paul’s Cathedral, the masterpiece of the well – known English architect Christopher Wren. It took him thirty – five years to build the Cathedral. The Whispering Gallery which is over 100 feet above the floor of the Cathedral is remarkable for its acoustics. A person standing at the entrance of the Gallery can heat clearly what is said on the opposite side, 107 feet away. Beneath the centre of the dome is the tomb of Lord Nelson.
Guide: It’s a great building.
Student7: Well, I know, it’s Westminster Abbey. Last year I made a report on this theme. Westminster Abbey is noted for its architecture and historical association. It is the church where nearly all the kings and queens have been crowned and where many of them are buried it is an honored resting – place for those who have served the nation, whether in science, like Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin, literature, like Charles Dickens, or politics. It was found by Edward the Confessor in 1050, and for a long time it was a monastery. The present building dates largely from the time of Henry III who began to rebuild the church, a task whish lasted nearly 300 years. This is really a masterpiece of its time.
Student8: Look here, this leaflet is dedicated to Scotland, I know it is the most northern part of the Island of Great Britain. From books I’ve learnt Scotland is divided into three regions: the Highlands, the Lowlands and the Southern Uplands. Ben Nevis – the highest mountain is situated here. Aberdeen and Glasgow are Scotland’s biggest cities. When people think of this country they imagine bagpipes and kilts. As you know the kilt is the relic of the time. When the clan system was in the Highlands everybody in the clan had the same name, like Mac Donald or Mc Cregor( Mac means’ son of’). They say Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is not only a very beautiful city, it is also a cultural center of the country which is associated with the names of George Gordon Byron, Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and Arthur Conan Doyle.
The symbol of Scotland is a thistle. As for me I want to find out if the Loch Ness monster exists.
Guide: You are nuts. I swear to God. Nessy is just your fantasy. I say, look at this leaflet. It’s about Northern Ireland, the smallest component of the United Kingdom. People sometimes call this country “Ulster” in such a climate and it makes the island look so beautiful. The capital of Northern Ireland is Belfast, which is a shamrock. Judging to this description Northern Ireland is world visiting. So, what can you tell us about Wales?
Student9: Well I‘ve read the population of Wales is over 3 million people. It is a highland country of old, hard rocks. The pride of Wales is Snowdonia, England and Wales. The Capitan of Wales, Cardiff, is situated on the Tuff River. It is an administrative and culture center and the largest port. So if we want to visit Eisteddfod, the most famous festival of Welsh culture, we should go to Wales.
Guide: But first listen to me. England is not the last country in this list. It is the largest and the most industrial part of the UK. No part of England’s climate. Besides we can visit the capital of England, London and go sightseeing. We’ll see the Englishmen. They’re known to be conservative, prudent and well – mannered. What do you think of a typical Englishman?
Student10: I remember a picture a John Bull who is considered to be the symbol of the typical Englishman. He is often drawn in cartoon or pictures about England. He was invented in 1712 by a political writer John Arbuthnot. John Bull is drawn as a big man with a large stomach and a round face. He wears high boots, an open jacket and a Union Jack waistcoat. He often has a bulldog with him.
Student1: You’re joking. The Englishmen are nice, polite and good – looking people. They’re proud of their country, tradition and customs. By the way do know, why the symbol of England is a red rose?
Student2: Our teacher of History told us there was a series of wars in England in the 15th century, whish were called the Wars of Roses. They were between the Dukes of Lancaster and the Dukes of York over who should be king. The emblem of Lancaster was the red rose and the emblem of York was the white rose. The Duke of Lancaster won, so the emblem of England is the red rose.
Guide: Look, there’s the portrait of one of the most famous English writers – William Shakespeare. People all over the world know his tragedies and comedies. Just remember his characters: Romeo and Juliet, Kind Lear, Macbeth many others.
Student3: I want to say British literature is rich in geniuses: John Mortimer, Graham Green, The Bronte sisters, Arthur Conan Doyle, Lewis Carroll, Persy Busshe Shelley, Somerset W. Maugham. The list goes on and on. Francly speaking I’m so impressed with the verses by a great Scottish poet. Robert Burns. Just listen:
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose,
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly played in June.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:
Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
And I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sends o’ life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only Luve.
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.
Guide: You’re right. Poetry is a great power. Nowadays teenagers don’t like to read books, but it’s wrong. Francis Bacon said “Reading makes a full man”. I agree with him. Only books can help you to explore new ideas, expand outlook, educate and sometimes escape from everyday life problems. They give you information about latest discoveries, politics, ancient time, lives of the famous people.
Student4: We can’t speak about literature without mentioning music. In London we hear music everywhere. But I always associate England with the famous Liverpool group The Beatles. Everyone in the world knows their songs: “Yesterday”, “Let it be”, “Hey, Jude” and you can hear the theme on the song “Michelle” in many films, programmers and concerts. The songs are translated into many languages and listened by million all over the world. (Звучит песня в исполнении группы “The Beatles”)
Michelle, ma belle
These are worlds that go together well,my Michelle
Michelle, ma belle, sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble
Tres bien ensemble
I love you, I love you, I love you
That’s all I want to say
Until I find a way
I will say the only words I know you'll understand
Michelle, ma belle
Sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble
Tres bien ensemble
I need to, I need to, I need to
I need to make you see
Oh, what you mean to me
Until I do I'm hoping you will know what I mean
I love you
I want you, I want you, I want you
I think you know by now
I'll get to you some how
Until I do, I'm telling you, so you'll understand
Michelle, ma belle
Sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble
Tres bien ensemble
And I will say the only words I know that you'll understand,
Student5: I was surprised to know that teen’s problems are discussed in many British magazines and newspapers and I think that most of there problems can be applied to Russia. Violence, drugs and alcohol are problems for young people. Many teenagers in with drugs and alcohol addiction do not admit that they are dependent. Teenagers in Russia also have family and school problems. Many teenagers lack understanding on the part on their parents. They say their parents are indifferent to their problem. And as many problems can’t be solved by teenagers they began to think of commuting suicide.
Guide: Well, It’s awful to learn that the Government surveys show that every fifth teenager who was arrested for criminal action was younger than 14 and could not be sent to prison. Almost half of teenagers have an experience with drugs, alcohol and sex under age of 16.
Student6: I’ve read from one of the magazine articles that some specialists explain that the changes of our society, the system of our life force young people to choose their own life style. On the one hand they agrees that 15-17 year – old – people are, old enough to be responsible for what they do and give them quite a lot of freedom and rights. On the other hand, most adults think, that teenagers are too young to be taken seriously. This misunderstanding produces many problems.
Guide: And what ways to improve the situation does this article suggest?
Student6: The author tells about special clinics for alcoholic. She also tells about information on these problems to be provided by mass media and schools.
Guide: Do you know that there is international agreement called the United Nation convention on the Rights of the Child? The British Government joined the UN Convention on the right of the child as Russia. It really gives and protects children’s rights.
Student7: Yes, of course. Personally I feel that children have a real document with which to work on their problems.
Student8: I want to tell you that during our tour I meet some young people who tell me about their problems. One of them thinks that the world is becoming a scary place. His life is difficult for him luck. The other one has another opinion about his life. He believes that being a teenager is great fun. Teenagers years bring him only luck. And what do you think about it?
Student9: I think it’s awful feel only problems and more nothing. That’s why I suggest live life to the max, to enjoy the teens years and not to care what others might think.
Srudent10: During my tour around London I noticed that its streets, parks, square are clean. It is so because there are over 300 nature centers in British cities and more than 30 in Britain: Friends of the Earth, Green peace, London wildlife Trust and others.
Guide: Yes, you are right, British children learn a lot about the Earth at school. They celebrate Earth Day at school. They get special environmental education Even though they are children, and they can’t do much about pollution or energy, there are a lot ways in which – they can help to save the earth. They are taking care of animals, birds, planting trees and flowers, saving plastic bags and recycling them.
Student1: The problem of the environment is much spoken about on TV, radio and in the newspapers. There are special magazines about nature, where the pollution solution takes place. British government is making tougher laws against air pollution. And scientists are looking for ways to make factories and cars run cleaner.
Guide: I what to continue that nearly half of the lakes and rivers are polluted too. And scientists are finding a solution to this problem. There are big plans to clean up: Thames, Severn Tuff and other bodies of water.
Student2: Do you know that each person in Britain threw away about four, pounds (1.8 kg) of trash daily. Put it all together and you’d fill 45.000 trash trucks every day! And now some companies have begun to use less packaging. A lot of cities have started recycling project. Many people are working hard to do everything to solve environmental problems.
Guide: Oh, guys, it’s seven o’clock. It’s time to get off.
And now you can visit a tourist shopping center with cafes and restaurants. We’ll stop here our tour has finished. I hope very much that you have enjoyed this tour of London.
Thank you and good – bye.
