Ход урока:


  • The world knows the names of many famous persons: mathematicians, historians, writers, singers and many others. We remember and we are proud of their contribution to learning and our life. I think each person wants to gain this goal but you need a lot of talent to be famous. I believe you know a lot of them in Russia and in other countries. That’s way I’d like to ask you some questions at the beginning of our lesson:


  • Do you know any famous people? Who are they?

  • What are they famous for?

  • Who are you proud of? Why?

  • What do you know about Royal Family?

  • Have you heard about Diana?

  • What do you know about her?

(Students` answers)


- And today I’d like to let you know more about her. Well, will you look at her portrait. What does she look like? What can you tell me about her, about her eyes, her smile?

(Students` answers)


- Well, I think you’ll learn much more about her with the help of this lesson. First of all I’d like you to look at the blackboard. You can see some words you’ll come across in the text I’d like you to read them now. Read the verbs and match them with their translations.


(On the blackboard):

to die говорить

to divorce называть

to watch умирать

to study любить

to marry разводиться

to continue учиться

to return жениться (выходить замуж)

to love продолжать

to say работать

to work продолжать

to care завершать

to complete появляться

to call возвращаться

to appear смотреть



- Good for you! And now I want to ask you to put these verbs into the Past Simple.

Why into this tense? Because we are going to use these verbs doing the next task.

(Students` answers)


- Now you are ready to read the text about Diana’s biography and fill in the gaps with the correct verbs.


(Students are given the cards with the text and some minutes to do it. This task may also be done as a reading task. Students may be asked to read the text and fill in the gaps at the same time.)


















Read Diana’s biography and fill in the gaps with the correct verbs.


Died, divorced, watched, studied, married, continued, returned, loved, worked, carried, completed, called, appeared.

- You are lucky today. You have a chance not only to read and to talk about Diana but also to see the Royal Family. I’d like to show you a fragment of the film about Diana’s wedding. I just want you to see this exciting ceremony and pay attention to Diana.

(Students are offered a short film (3 min) about Diana’s wedding.)

I am sure that your homework will help you to do it. Your task will be to tell me everything what you know about Diana using the second card I’ve given to you and extra material which you should find.


(At the end of the lesson if you have some time you can play an educational game with your students “ A snowball”)


  • Would you like to be famous?

  • What would you be like if you were famous?

Students should complete this sentence. The first student completes the sentence with his/her phrase. The second one repeats it and says the same sentence with his/her phrase.
