Today our lesson is devoted to the topic “English-speaking countries”. As it is clear from the title we will speak about those countries where the official language is English. And I want to offer you to have a competition. For this competition you should split up into two teams. Let’s do it I have cards of two colours. Please take a card out of the box. The pupils with green cards will play in the first team. The pupils with yellow cards will play in the second one.
Команды рассаживаются за два стола.
Teacher: Please, give the names to your teams. They should be connected with the topic of our lesson “English-Speaking countries”. Well, now your teams have names and we can start.
Our first competition is “Shape”.
Каждой команде раздаются листы, на которых нарисованы контуры различных англо-говорящих стран: Великобритании, Соединённых Штатов Америки, Австралии, Канады, новой Зеландии. Учащиеся получают задание определить по контуру название страны.
So, I’ll give each team these sheets of paper. You can see the shapes of different English-speaking countries there. Guess what countries have such shapes. You have three minutes for this task.
В течение трёх минут учащиеся обсуждают свои ответы.
Teacher: Well. Time is up. Let’s check. Please, put your sheets of paper on the blackboard.
