 From the history of London

The history of London begins about the year AD 43, when the Romans were in possession of the southern part of Britain and founded a military station on the present site of London. London was not built as a city in the same way as Paris or New York. It began life as a Roman fortification at a place where it was possible to cross the River Thames. A wall was built around the town for defense.  This settlement was called Londinium.  

By the 9th century, London was a very prosperous trading centre.

In 1176 the first stone London Bridge was built. This bridge was the only one in London until 1739.

When Henry VII took the throne in 1485, the population of the city of London was about 75,000. By 1600 that figure had risen to 200,000. London under the Tudors was a prosperous  city.

In 1665 Plague broke out in the city, brought by ship from Holland. London had been no stranger to the plague since the Middle Ages, but this was something different - sufferers could catch it and die within hours. The city was in a state of panic. Many people left the city and escaped to the villages in the surrounding countryside. Estimates of the death toll range from 70,000 to well over 100,000 lives. In 1666 the Great Fire of London ended the plague, but it also destroyed much of the city. On the night of September 2, 1666 a small fire, perhaps started by the carelessness of a maid, started in the shop of the king's baker in Pudding Lane. For four days the fire raged through the close-packed streets of wooden houses, until the wind died.

The toll of the fire was immense. Although only 8 lives were lost, fully four-fifths of the city was completely destroyed, including 13,000 buildings, 89 churches, 52 company halls, and old St. Paul's Cathedral.

Within days, Christopher Wren, an outstanding English architect  presented a plan for rebuilding the city with broad boulevards and open squares. Wren was given the task of rebuilding the churches, including St. Paul's Cathedral. Most of the churches in London today are Wren's work, and it is difficult to find churches that date to the period before the fire.

The Victorian city of London was a city of startling contrasts. The population surged during the 19th century, from about 1 million in 1800 to over 6 million a century later.

The early part of the 19th century was the golden age of steam. The first railway in London was built from London Bridge to Greenwich in 1836, and a great railway boom followed.

In 1834 the Houses of Parliament at Westminster Palace burned down. They were gradually replaced by the triumphant Houses of Parliament designed by Charles Barry and A.W. Pugin. The clock tower of the Houses of Parliament, known as Big Ben, was built in 1859.

The year 1863 saw the completion of the very first underground railway in London, from Paddington to Farringdon Road. It was the first underground in the world. The project was so successful that other lines soon followed.  

The terrific population growth of the late Victorian period continued into the 20th century. In 1904 the first motor bus service in London began, followed by the first underground electric train in 1906, but perhaps more notable was the appearance of new luxury hotels, department stores, and theatres particularly in the West End. The hardship of London during the World Wars is well known. In the post-war period heavy immigration from countries of the old British Empire changed the character of the city. But Londoners and English did all their best to rebuild their capital.

Heathrow airport opened to commercial flights in 1946, and the first double-decker red buses appeared on London roads in 1956.

The London Docks declined after the war, and area around the Isle of Dogs were rescued by modern development in the last decade.

Now London is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

3 )Post-listening task:

1) What new have you learnt from this text?

   2) What was the most interesting fact for you?

3. Reading

Teacher:  It is not surprising that many painters, poets and writers regard London as the source of  inspiration. They painted it in their pictures, wrote stories and novels about it, sang it in their poems. Let’s read a poem about London by William Topaz McGonagall. After reading the poem you will tell me what you imagined.(Слайд 2)

  1.  Reading the poem

Descriptive Jottings of London
William Topaz McGonagall

    As I stood upon London Bridge and viewed the mighty throng
    Of thousands of people in cabs and busses rapidly whirling along,
    All furiously driving to and from,
    Up one street and down another as quick as they could go:
   
      And the Tower of London is most gloomy to behold,
    
      And the crown of England lies there, be gemmed with precious stones and gold;
  
      King Henry the Sixth was murdered there by the Duke of Gloster,
   
      And when he killed him with his sword he called him an impostor.
   St. Paul's Cathedral is the finest building that ever I did see;
   There's nothing can surpass it in the city of Dundee,
   Because it's most magnificent to behold
   With its beautiful dome and spire glittering like gold.
     And as for Nelson's Monument that stands in Trafalgar Square,
     It is a most stately monument I most solemnly declare,
     And towering defiantly very high,
     Which arrests strangers' attention while passing by.
   Then there's two beautiful water-fountains spouting up very high,
   Where the weary traveller can drink when he feels dry;
   And at the foot of the monument there's
 four bronze lions in grand array,
   Enough to make the stranger's heart throb with dismay.
      Oh! Mighty city of London! You are wonderful to see,
     And the beauties no doubt fill the tourist's heart with glee…

  1.  Teacher: Now I’d like you to tell me what you imagined while reading the poem? Let’s draw an imaginary picture.
  2.  Visiting the City      
  3.  Phonetic drill

The Teacher: Now London is one of the largest cities in the world.  More than 10mln people live in London and its suburbs.  London is a city of striking contrasts. Here one can come across the past and the present, the old and the modern, live side by side in mutual tolerance and respect.

Today we’ll have an excursion round London and try to know as much as possible about its sights.

First let’s practice in pronunciation of some proper names (слайд 3):

The Tower of London

Tower Bridge

St. Paul’s Cathedral

Westminster Abbey

Trafalgar Square

Buckingham Palace

Downing Street

Whitehall

The Houses of Parliament

Science Museum

Hyde Park

  Millennium Bridge

 Christopher Wren

 Whispering Gallery

    No excursion can be held without a guide. Let me introduce our guides. They are …

Guide 1: In London, one can see architecture of different centuries and styles. It is inseparably connected with the history of the city.  Traditionally London is divided into  several  parts:   the   City, Westminster, the West End and the East End. The city first started in the place, which is known as the City. It is the oldest part and the Heart of London, it’s commercial and  business  centre.  It occupies a territory of a square mile. During a day, it is full of people, nearly a million people work there.     

  1.  Students’ information about the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral.  TOWER OF LONDON  AND TOWER BRIDGE

If you want  to  get  some  glimpses  of  London,  you’d  better  start sightseeing with the Tower of London, that comes first  among  the  historic buildings of the city. I want to say that the Tower has been part  of the capital's history for the past 600 years. It was built as the fortress after the Norman invasion of England in 1066. It has been used as the Royal Palace, as an observatory, an arsenal and a  prison.  For many visitors the  principal attraction is the Crown Jewels, the finest precious stones of the nation. The White Tower, dating from 1078, contains a spectacular collection of arms. The symbol of Tower is 6 ravens which live there. Ceremony is still part of the daily life within The Tower. Following a 700-year tradition, each night the Chief Warder locks the gates and hands the keys to the Resident Governor.

     And now we can talk about a Tower Bridge of London, London’s best known and most distinctive bridge has straddled the Thames for a century. The twin draw-bridges, each weighing about 1,000 tons, have been raised more than half a million times since the bridge was built. The Tower bridge is one of the most beautiful bridges across the Thames. Built in 1894, it  is still in daily use. Even today Tower Bridge regulates a large part of the impressive traffic of the Port of London.

ST. PAUL'S CATHEDRAL

Everybody coming to London for the first time wants to see St. Paul's Cathedral. This is the third cathedral with this name which London has had. The two others were burnt down, the first in 1086 and the second in 1666.

Christopher Wren was an architect who had already built many buildings. Now, in 1675, he started on his greatest work. For 35 years the building of St. Paul's Cathedral went on, and Wren was an old man before it was finished.

From far away you can see the huge dome with a golden ball and cross on the top. The inside of the cathedral is very beautiful. After looking around, you can climb 263 steps to the Whispering Gallery, above the library, which runs round the dome. It is called this because if someone whispers close to the wall on one side, a person with an ear close to the wall on the other side can hear what is said. Then, if you climb another 118 steps, you will be able to stand outside the dome and look over London.

  1.  Watching the fragment of the film about the City and historical places of London.

Not very far from it there is Downing Street where for the last 200 years at house number 10 the Prime Minister of England has resided. Downing Street leads to Whitehall. It is the street of governmental offices. A little further we can see the Houses of Parliament. This is the place where the English Government – Parliament sits.

6. Sightseeing in the West End.       

 1) Teacher: It’s time to visit the next part of London, The West End.

 Guide 1: The West End is the  richest  part  of  the  city  with  its  beautiful avenues, parks and gardens, grand hotels, theatres and fashionable shops.  It is a symbol of wealth and luxury. It is the cultural and entertaining centre. This part of London is very favourable for leisure and entertainment and that’s why it is often visited by tourists.

7. Visiting the East End.       

         Teacher:  Without visiting the last part of London, the East End, our knowledge of London wouldn’t be complete.

  Guide 2: While the City is the money of London and the West End is the wealth of London, the East End is the hands of London that built the banks of the City and beautiful palaces and hotels of the West End. It is the industrial and the poorest part of London. It is a district, inhabited by the workers and dockers. There are many factories, plants and enterprises and the Port of London there. It is London about which the guide-book hasn’t much to say.

 Teacher: So, our trip is coming to its end. We well know that there is so much to see in London, that even Londoners can always find new places of interest. And it’s impossible to see and discuss all of them for such a short period. We’ll do it at the next lessons.

8. Speaking ( Pair work).      

        Teacher:: Now let’s imagine we are in London. Act out situations. Work in pairs. One of you is a tourist visiting London for the first time. Ask your guide for a piece of advice telling him/her what you are keen on. The other student is a guide who can advise you on something according to your interests.

Descriptive Jottings of London
William Topaz McGonagall

    As I stood upon London Bridge and viewed the mighty throng
    Of thousands of people in cabs and busses rapidly whirling along,
    All furiously driving to and from,
    Up one street and down another as quick as they could go:
   
          And the Tower of London is most gloomy to behold,
   
          And the crown of England lies there, be gemmed with precious stones and gold;
   
          King Henry the Sixth was murdered there by the Duke of Gloster,
   
          And when he killed him with his sword he called him an impostor.
   St. Paul's Cathedral is the finest building that ever I did see;
   There's nothing can surpass it in the city of Dundee,
   Because it's most magnificent to behold
   With its beautiful dome and spire glittering like gold.
              And as for Nelson's Monument that stands in Trafalgar Square,
 
            It is a most stately monument I most solemnly declare,
 
           And towering defiantly very high,
             Which arrests strangers' attention while passing by.
   Then there's two beautiful water-fountains spouting up very high,
   Where the weary travellers can drink when he feels dry;
   And at the foot of the monument there's three bronze lions in grand array,
   Enough to make the stranger's heart throb with dismay.
  
           Oh! Mighty city of London! You are wonderful to see,
  
           And the beauties no doubt fill the tourist's heart with glee…
