2. While listening
Listen to a story and say if you agree with its message.
A HAPPY MAN
Once upon a time there lived a king, who was very ill. Many doctors visited him,
but the king got worse instead of better. At last they called a famous doctor from
The doctor looked at the king and said: "Your Majesty! There is only one thing that
can help you".
"What is that?" asked the king.
"You must sleep for one night in the shirt of a happy man," said the doctor.
So, the king ordered to find a happy man. Firstly, they went to the richest man in
the city and asked him if he was a happy man.
"Happy!" He said. "Oh, no. I have a lot of problems. How can I be happy?"
Then they went to the king's minister and asked the same question.
"Don't be silly," he said. "Our enemies are trying to make war on us. The workers
demand more money.
The rich have money, but don't want to pay. Can I be a happy man?"
So, they looked for a happy man everywhere, but in vain.
On their way home they saw a poor man. He had no home, no food, but he smiled
and sang songs. They asked him if he was happy. He was really happy and they
couldn't believe their ears. "We want your shirt," they said. The man said, "I'm
sorry, gentlemen, but I haven't got my own shirt."

T.They say "Happiness makes the world go round". Do you agree with this?
By the way, what is happiness to you?
...having a lot of faithful friends;
...having everything we wish;
...having a good and friendly family;
...having a brother or a sister; .
...getting good marks;
...having a pet;
...having exciting trips to other places and countries;
...having good health.
T: Well, as Ann has just told us “Happiness is having good health.” To be happy means to be healthy. It is the most important thing in the world, but unfortunately, "Health is not valued till illness comes," an English proverb says. And nowadays we have a lot of problems concerning our health. Can you name them?
(Students speak about health problems.)
P1. You are quite right. There arc a lot of problems facing humanity nowadays.
But on the top of them is the problem of health. Scientists in many countries are
worried about what is happening. We can't breathe fresh air, drink clean water, eat
fruits and vegetables without nitrates, and simply lie on the grass. Everything is
polluted. How can we be healthy?
P2. I am all for it. We pollute the air we breathe. Everybody can see the smoke
coming out of factories and plant chimneys. Everyone smells the gas from cars
and buses. They add tons of poison to the atmosphere every day.
P3. I stick to your opinion! And I'd like to mention one more problem — it's our
sewage system. It pollutes rivers and lakes, seas and oceans. Fish can't live in
them and people can't swim there. Even oceans are being polluted.
P4. It stands to reason that everything is being polluted — water, soil, air...
Naturally, people are falling ill. That's why the problem of health is so burning.
But we want to live, play, sing, laugh, dance, love.
P5. Yes, we want to live and not to die;
We want to laugh and not to cry;
We want to feel the summer sun;
We want to sing when life is fun.
P6. We want to fly into the blue;
We want to swim as fishes do;
We want to stretch our friendly hands
To all the young of other lands.
P7. We want to fight for what is right;
We want to laugh and not to cry;
We want to live and not to die;
We want to be happy, gay and light.
P8. Really, health is the most important thing in our life. We can't buy it for
money, that's why wc should take care of it and keep it. When we are healthy, we
are strong, active and full of energy. We are always in a good mood.
P9. I fully agree with you. No one in his good health can seriously believe that
health is the only thing that really matters. Yet, with age health becomes the most
frequent topic. .
6. PAIR WORK

...to use it as an electronic vocabulary.
7. Give a piece of advice to your peer on computer safety.
Never sit too close to a computer screen. It's very bad for your eyes. Remember to
look away from the screen from time to time. This gives your eyes a rest. As for
the window, it should be on your left or your right, not directly behind the screen.
T. Well, health is a great thing. But to our great regret, sometimes we fall ill. Who
can help us? What is a doctor?
A doctor is a person who
...treats people when they are ill.
...helps people to get well. Etc.
