Конспект урока по теме "Зачем мы учим английский язык" для 8 класса

Автор: Проценко Наталья Валентиновна

Место работы: МБОУ СОШ №2

Должность: учитель английского языка


Данная разработка нацелена, прежде всего, на практику говорения по теме, она несложная по своему оформлению и достаточно эффективная в применении. На уроке отсутствуют выученные наизусть длинные монологические выступления учащихся, но на каждом этапе классной работы успешно формируются технические навыки самостоятельно строить высказывания: текст чтения рассматривается как база для совершенствования устной речи, аудирование на данном уроке также стимулирует речевую деятельность. На уроке четко прослеживается формирование универсальных учебных действий (умение анализировать данные таблиц и схем, заполнять анкеты, умение выражать своё мнение). Используется аудиозапись, раздаточный материал, презентация. Разработка составлена в соответствии с учебником: О. В. Афанасьева, И.В. Михеева. Английский язык.4-й год обучения. 8 класс. Дрофа. Москва.2008.

Приложение 1. Текст для аудирования:

Hello, my name is Paul Davis.

I’m a teacher at the international language school in Oxford. Our school in rather new but it is already quite popular. A lot of teenagers come here from different countries of the world. They stay in Oxford for 2 weeks. In the mornings and afternoons they have English classes and lectures on the History of Great Britain. In the evenings they have cultural visits to museums, picture galleries and historic places. I think they enjoy it. Most of them are good and motivated students and pleasant to teach.

My group has 9 students from 6 different countries. Anna, a very talented girl comes from Munich, Germany. Her English is very good but she has some problems with grammar. She has already made friends with Julia, a French girl from Lion. Julia’s English is not so good in but she is working hard. Chris is from France too. He is interested in sport. Unfortunately, he is not a very hardworking student. Max and Nina come from Russia. They are both very nice and motivated. Swen and Martha come from Norway. They are both very motivated and work well. Frida is from Holland. Samuel is Spanish. It is his third visit to Oxford. We all like him very much.

Different Kinds of English

In the 16th century the people who lived in Europe did not know

Latin, French, German and Italian were popular and widely

Four hundred years later the speakers of English travelled into
every corner of the globe carrying their language and culture
with them. Today English is more important than any other lan-
guage has ever been. It has become the language of the planet, the
first truly global language. Of all the world's languages it is prob-
ably the richest in vocabulary. Now it is the language of technolo-
gy and science, business and sport. English is the official lan-
guage of the Olympics, the official voice of the air and of the sea.
People use English as the first language in English-speaking
countries such as Britain, the USA, Canada, Australia and New
Zealand. It has become the second language in countries like In-
dia, Nigeria and Singapore. Then there is En-
glish as a foreign language. People teach and learn English as a
foreign language in Europe and Asia, in Africa and South Ameri-
ca, in other words, all over the world.

But English is not the same everywhere. Several kinds of English
have appeared. They are American English, Canadian English,
Australian English, etc. People who live in Britain speak British
