Hallo boys and girls! Glad to see you!
The topic of our lesson is “Travelling to the English-Speaking countries.”
We’ll have not an ordinary lesson today. We’ll
have a press-conference .
The aim of the lesson is to improve our know-
ledge, to learn new words and expressions,
to discuss some problems, concerning the life,
science and economy of these countries, to broaden our outlook and to have a quiz.
Imagine: the deligation from the English –
Speaking countries came to our school.Some of them are scientists, some – correspondents and some – students. Let them introduce them-
selves ( pupils introduce themselves ).
It’s a pity that one of the delegates Miss.Johnson couldn’t come to participate in
the conference but yesterday we received her
report «English is a world language».
I think it’ll be interesting to listen to it and to see her presentation.
Guests from the 9th form! Please, look, listen and answer the questions. (Учащимся раздаются карточки с вопросами. Эти же
вопросы они могут видеть на экране)

schools they begin to learn to read and write.
