2. ПРЕЗЕНТАЦИИ О СТРАНЕ
B: First we are going to learn some information about Japan.
A: I’d like to know where it is, why so special and why is called so, Japan?
B: Listen to Bogdan. He’ll present us his report.
Japan is a country in Asia. It has many islands. Four of them are big: Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku, and Kyushu. The biggest is called Honshu. There are about 6,000 smaller islands in the western part of the Pacific Ocean.
Japanese people call their country Nihon or Nippon, which means “the origin of the Sun” in Japanese. Japan has a Prime minister and an Emperor and Empress. About 13 million people live in Tokyo, which is the capital city of Japan.
In the middle of Japan, there are mountains. Many of the mountains are extinct volcanoes, but some are still active. The highest of these mountains is the beautiful, volcano-shaped Mount Fuji.
A: Thank you, Bogdan.
B: Have you remembered the names?
A: Yes. There are 4 islands: Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku, and Kyushu. Tokyo is the capital of the country. Fuji is a mount.
B: Let’s go on.
A: Who is next?
B: Now welcome Katya. She’s going to tell us about some aspects of Japanese culture.
Many things in Japanese culture originated in China, for example, bonsai. But there are many other totally Japanese elements of culture, especially in the cuisine.
Japan’s traditional food is seafood, rice, miso soup, and vegetables. Noodles and tofu are also common. Sushi, a Japanese food made of cooked rice with vinegar with other ingredients such as raw fish, is popular around the world.
A: Thank you, Katya.
B: The next one is Fedya, who is talking about sport in Japan.
Japan has many traditional sports such as sumo, judo, karate, kyudo, aikido and kendo. Also, there are sports which were imported from the West such as baseball, soccer, rugby, golf and skiing.
Japan has taken part in the Olympic Games since 1912. It hosted the Olympic Games in 1964, 1972 and 1998. From 1912 until now, Japanese sports people have won 398 medals in total.
Professional sports are also popular and many sports such as baseball, soccer, sumo, American football, basketball and volleyball, are played professionally.
A: Thank you a lot.
B: And the last presentation about Japanese technologies by Nastya.
In the past, much science in Japan was learnt either from China, or from Europe in the Meiji Era, before the Wars. However, in recent decades Japan has been a leading innovator in several fields, including chemical engineering, nanotechnology, and robotics. There are many technological companies in Japan, and these companies make products for export.
The robot Asimo was made and introduced in 2000. It was manufactured by Honda.
A: Thank you all for your presentations!
3. ИНСЦЕНИЗАЦИЯ СКАЗКИ
B: Now we invite you to see a traditional Japanese tale. By the way, what’s its title?
A: The Frog from Osaka and the Frog from Kyoto.
A frog who lived in Osaka once decided to travel to Kyoto. He had heard that Kyoto was a marvellous city, and he was eager to see it.
Meanwhile, a frog from Kyoto decided to travel to Osaka. He had heard that Osaka was a fantastic city. He was eager to visit there.
It took these tiny frogs a long time to climb the mountain road. For days each kept up their struggle, higher and higher on the mountain road they climbed.
It happened that the two frogs met right at the top of the mountain. How amazed they were to see each other!
“I am going to Kyoto!” said the frog from Osaka. “I’ve heard it is marvellous!”
“I am going to Osaka!” responded the Kyoto frog. “I’ve heard the same thing about Osaka!”
“It’s too bad we aren’t taller,” said the Osaka frog. “If we were just a bit taller we could look ahead at our destinations. This has been such a hard journey. I hope it is worth it.”
“But I have an idea!” said the Kyoto frog. “Why don’t we hold onto each other and stand up on our hind legs? Then we could each see the city that lies ahead.”
“What a great idea!”
The two frogs grasped each other around the shoulders. Each stood wobbling as tall as possible on its hind legs facing toward the city it hoped to visit.
“What!” exclaimed the Kyoto frog. “Osaka looks just like Kyoto!”
“Imagine!” said the Osaka frog. “Kyoto looks exactly like Osaka!”
“It’s a good thing we checked this out. We might as well save ourselves the long trip and go back home.”
So the two bid each other farewell and each started hop ... hop ... hopping back down the mountain.
They had forgotten just one thing. The frogs’ eyes were at the back of their heads.
Thus, the Kyoto frog was really staring back at the city he had just left. And the Osaka frog was staring at his hometown.
Still each frog lived out his days happily, content in the knowledge that the other city was just like his own!
B: Good job!
