Проверка домашнего задания
В качестве домашнего задания группам учащихся нужно было выбрать лидера своей страны и подготовить устное выступление о его достижениях и обосновать свой выбор.
Данный этап урока представляет условно-коммуникативный обмен краткими репликами в монологическими высказываниями на основе выбора.
1 группа из России представила своего лидера – Пётр I.
Peter the Great was one of the most famous tsars in Russian history. Although he was often cruel, no one can deny that he changed his country’s future forever. Peter was wild and he sometimes had bad manners. But he was bright and he wanted to learn about everything. He enjoyed hard work and building things with his hands.
Peter’s dream was to create a powerful Russian navy. He worked for 4 months in a shipyard in Holland. He learned watch making and human body. So, when he returned to Russia, he even helped doctors perform surgery. He hired hundreds of specialists, such as engineers, doctors, shipbuilders, naval officers,
He also wanted to make changes in people’s personal lives. At that time men had beards; European men didn’t. So Peter passed a law that all men had to shave off their beards.
2 группа из Великобритании представила – Принцессу Диану.
Princess Diana
The leader of our country is Princess Diana whose fate impressed us greatly.
She has done so much for her native country and was the national heroine.
Her parents were of high birth, but she worked as a nanny and as a kindergarten teacher.
When she married Charles, Diana wanted to have children and her dream came true. She had two sons, William and Henry. Lady Diana was perfect and affectionate mother, because she adored her children.
Princess Diana took part in many charities. One of them was “The Heart of Britain”, a charity organization, keeping children with heart trouble.
We all love her for her charming manners and for her beauty. This woman was close to the people in the street so she was called “The people’s princess”
3 группа
We have chosen John Kennedy because he was the youngest man ever elected president.
He was also one of the wittiest.


Лидером группы из США был избран Джон Кеннеди
Kennedy served in the Navy during World War II. He was proud of his war record but never bragged about it. When a high school boy once asked him: “Mr. President. How did you become a war hero?”, he responded. “It was involuntary. They sank my boat.”

When a torpedo boat he commanded was wrecked by a Japanese destroyer, he saved the life of one man who was wounded by seizing the end of his life jacket in his teeth and towing him to an island three miles away.
While he was President he frequently said: “ All I want them to say about me is what they said about John Adams - “He kept peace”.
Презентация :”My country at a glance”.

Society is becoming more and more violent
Military science reveals a shocking fact about young Americans. In World War II, only 20 % of soldiers were willing to fire their rifles (ружья). In the Korean War, 50 % of soldiers were willing to shoot an enemy while, in the Vietnam war, 90 % of soldiers were willing to kill.
Social studies in this country have shown that in the late nineties, more than 40 % of young people were willing to have a gun.
These facts show that modern society is becoming more and more violent! Why? Some people think that violence on TV and in movies, plus point-and-shoot video games, make young people more violent today.
