Hi, I'm Petro from Smila. It's in the centre of Ukraine.

I'm a pupil of the 11th form and I study English at school. I try to master the language as well as I can do it at school. 'Why?' you can ask. Well, I have my point of view as for this. I want to reach success in life and English will help me.

You see, modern life is impossible without communication. This communication is between people of one country and between people of different nations. So it is necessary to know at least one foreign language.

Besides, I think, that to achieve real success in life is impossible without speaking a foreign language. If you are a scientist you need it to read literature and to take part in conferences.

If you want to be a good expert in any field you need a foreign language to receive new information on your speciality. If you are a businessperson you need a foreign language to have business with foreign partners.

Many people like to travel. For this a foreign language is necessary too. If you want to get education abroad you must know a foreign language too.

If you are fond of reading you can read interesting books in the original. If you are fond of music you can understand the words of songs. If you are an athlete you can communicate using a foreign language during international competitions. If you want to find a job abroad you must know a foreign language too. So in any field of modern life it is necessary to know a foreign language.

We live in Europe. Europe is integrating now and it is very important for everybody to know at least one foreign language. Ukraine is going to become a member of the European Council and the Common Market.

Our country takes part in many international political, economic, cultural and educational projects. But how to take part in them without speaking a foreign language? A private interpreter isn't a suitable way out. People can think that you aren't intelligent enough if you spend much money on paying the private interpreter instead of paying for your own education at least when you are young enough to learn any language rather quickly.

English is one of the most popular foreign languages. It is the most spoken language in international communication. I am glad that I know English a little and I plan to learn it better in future.

Cambridge is situated at a distance of 70 miles from London. It is one of the most beautiful towns in England. The dominating factor in Cambridge is its well-known University, a centre of education and learning. Newton, Byron, Darwin and many other scientists and writers were educated at Cambridge. It has 27 colleges. A college is a place where you live no matter what profession you are trained for: so students studying literature and those trained for physics may belong to one and the same college. Every college is headed by a dean.


Oxford is one of the great English universities too. Cambridge and Oxford are almost identical. They trace their long history back to the same period. By the end of the thirteenth century both universities already had colleges.



Oxford and Cambridge are associated with the higher ranks of society. They have always been universities for gentlemen.

The Constitution of the USA

American Constitution was adopted on September 17,1787 by delegates from all over the country. In 1791 the Bill of Rights was added to it.

The Bill of Rights gives American citizens freedom of speech, of the press and worship; the right to meet peacefully; the right to be secure in one's own home against unreasonable searches and seizure of person and property; and the right of any person charged with breaking the law to have a speedy trail by a jury of fellow citizens.

The Constitution divided the powers of government into three branches: the executive, the legislative and the juridical.

The executive power is headed by the President. The legislative power includes both houses of Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate).

The juridical power is headed by the Supreme Court.

The Constitution limits the role of each branch not to give any of them too much power.

For example, if the Congress adopted a law and the President signed it but the law conflicts with the Constitution, the Supreme Court cancels this law.

The whole system of American government is based on the principles established in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Americans are proud of their Constitution.

Answer the questions.

1. When was the USA constitution approved?

2. When was Bill of Rights added to it?

3. How many branches of power are there in the USA?

4. Who heads each of the branches?

5. What is the role of Constitution in American political life?

3. The Bill of Rights gives equal rights to every American. But do they really have equal rights? Not always, so from time to time Americans, who think that their civil rights are broken, protest against it. Give current examples confirming that

4. This American song is very popular among those who love freedom and take part in demonstrations and marches for peace, freedom, civil rights and democracy. The song is the result of the interchange between Negro and white musicians. People generally sing it in a group after a song leader. Read, learn and sing it too.



Traditional, words and music arranged by Z.Horton, F.Hamilton, G. Garawan and Pete Seeger

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome,

We shall overcome some day,

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe

We shall overcome some day,

We'll walk hand in hand,

We'll walk hand in hand.

Well walk hand in hand some day,

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall overcome some day,

We shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace,

We shall live in peace some day,

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall overcome some day,

We are not afraid,

We are not afraid,

We are not afraid today,

Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,

We shall overcome some day.


The United States of America (the USA)


In every life people call this country America. Do we know much of its past?

Part I. America in the past

Many hundred years ago on the territory of the present day America lived the red-skin Indians. They hunted animals and fished, grew corn and tobacco.

In the middle of the 15th century some European countries began to send their ships to discover new sea routes to far off lands. One of these explorers was Christopher Columbus from Spain, who sailed with his crew on 33 small ships for 3 months. When they saw at last an unknown land they thought that it was India. That is why they called the local people living there red-skin Indians. But Columbus was mistaken. It was an island near North America. This discovery took place on the 12th of October 1492. That is why in 1992 America celebrated its 500th anniversary. But this new land got its name "America" a little later when an Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci described it in his writings in 1499.

Same mar inherent European countries sent their people to North America to trade with the natives and to look for gold, silver, fur and other things there. In 1620 more than one hundred Englishmen left their country forever and went to America on board the ship "Mayflower" to live and work there. Their voyage lasted for many weeks and was very hard. At last they reached the coast of America and began to build a village called New Plymouth.

Later on, more and more people from many countries came to live in America. England considered these new territories as its colonies and soon the newcomers began to fight for their independence. The biggest war lasted from 1775 up to 1783. Commander-in-chief of the North American army was George Washington. His troops won this War for Independence and on July 4, 1776 the famous Declaration of Independence was signed by 13 United States of America. George Washington was elected to be the first American President.

Part II. America today

At present the USA is a highly developed industrial and agricultural country. It is rich in coal, oil, iron and natural gas. It exports a lot of raw materials, industrial and agricultural products.

People enjoy the wonders of nature practically in every state. The Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains, forests, plains, prairies and even deserts, wonderful lakes, waterfalls and rivers cover the American territory that equals about 9.4 million square kilometers. Among the most famous sites of interest are the Great Lakes, Niagara falls, the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco and others. There are many beautiful National parks and protected areas of wilderness in America.

The population of the USA is about 250 million people of many nationalities. Some of the biggest cities are New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and others. There are many very tall buildings in them that really scrape the sky, that's why they are called skyscrapers.

The capital of the country is Washington D. C. (the District of Columbia). The USA is a federal republic. The American parliament (called Congress) has two chambers: the House of Representatives and the Senate.

The flag of the USA has 13 red and white stripes representing the original 13 states and 50 stars for each of the 50 states of the country. Each state has its national motto, bird and flower as its symbol. For instance, California's motto is "I've found it! (Eureka)." Its state bird is Valley Quail and flower Golden Poppy.

America as any other country has its own customs, traditions, and holidays. For instance, on the 4th of July they celebrate Independence Day that gave birth to the American nation. At the end of November America has Thanksgiving Day which was celebrated for the first time in 1621 when first colonists from England got their first good harvest.

Young people enjoy two other holidays Halloween (on October 31) and St. Valentine's Day (on February 14). No doubt, a great amount of information about the USA is awaiting the future learners of this country. They will learn of the activity and life of American Presidents, the USA's great writers, poets, artists, scientists, musicians, film stars and other outstanding people.

Let it be only the first line of a long essay on the USA. But as an English proverb says "A good beginning is half the battle."

Go on studying America!

Goodbye, for the present.

Activity 2

1) Read and translate the text


Money is used for buying or selling goods, for measuring value and for storing wealth. Almost every society now has a money economy based on coins and paper bills of one kind or another. However, this has not always been true. In primitive societies a system of barter was used. Barter was a system of direct exchange of goods. Somebody could exchange a sheep, for example, for anything in the marketplace that they considered to be equal value. Barter, however, was a very unsatisfactory system, because people's precise needs seldom coincided. People needed more practical system of exchange, and various money systems developed based on goods which the members of society recognized as having value. Cattle, grain, teeth, shells, feathers, skulls, salt, elephant tusks, and tobacco have all been used. Precious metals gradually took over because, when made into coins, they were portable, durable, recognizable, and divisible into larger and smaller units of value. A coin is piece of metal, usually disc-shaped, which bears lettering, designs or numbers showing its value. Until the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, coins were given monetary worth based on face value - the value that governments choose to give them, irrespective of the actual metal content. Most governments now issue paper money in the form of bills, which are really "promises to pay". Paper money is obviously easier to handle and much more convenient in the modem world. Checks and credit cards are being used increasingly, and it is possible to imagine a world where "money" in the form of coins and paper currency will no longer be used.

In two days they saw the town. It was a nice small town, full of green trees and flowers. First their car passed small houses with orchards and kitchen gardens with fruit-trees and vegetables in them. Near the centre of the town there were big buildings, blocks of flats and a lot of shops. In the centre there was a square. The Stogovs saw the Town Soviet, a library and a hotel there. Not far from the hotel they saw a concert hall and a cinema. There was no theatre in the town. The Stogovs went to the hotel, but all the rooms were taken. So they had their dinner and left the town.

The London Underground

The city of London grew rapidly in 1800's. The streets of the city could not hold all the traffic. A young South African named Henry Greathead had a very simple idea. Why not build tunnels below the streets? Then trains could carry people through them.

Henry Greathead talked about subways for 20 years. But people who owned land in London said that they owned the streets as well as all the land under the streets. The landowners wanted to be paid for the use of this land. Then the Subway Act of 1884 was passed. This law declared that the streets and the land under them belonged to everyone. At last, Henry Greathead could build his subway tunnels.

Henry made working underground safer by using new ways to construct his tunnels. He also invented special tools for the job. Henry built two tubes, one on top of the other. Inside the tubes, electric engines pulled five-car trains. They could carry 160 passengers at 25 miles an hour. By 1890 the trains ran every three minutes. The subway was a great success.


a) The idea to build the underground appeared in the 18th century.

b) Henry Greathead was a famous English builder.

c) The first underground tunnels were built in 1820.

d) Going by the underground wasn't successful at first.


4. What is the difference between a return and a single ticket? Explain either in English or in Ukrainian.
