P1: We celebrate All Women's Day.

T: Yes, and at this day you greet your teachers and give some presents to your mothers. So, I want to ask you «Who has made something for his mother by himself?» I must admit that you are very talented.

II. New material representation (defining the topic of the lesson)

T: Now, look around our classroom. You can see the simple symbols of Ukrainian land: branches of pussywillows, snow-ball trees in a jug, an embroidered linen table-cloth, some Ukrainian towels made of flax, the national flag, the trident…

Please, tell me, what are we going to speak about today?

You are right. We'll continue speaking about Ukraine, our Motherland. So, our today's topic is «Welcome to Ukraine». And the motto of our lesson is «East or West home is best». Ihor, do you agree with this proverb? Why? You are right and today we are going to show everybody that Ukraine is the best place to live in and the best place to visit.

The main part of the lesson.

III. Group work.

T: First of all I want you to answer my questions. Who considers Ukrainians to be very talented? Just rise your hands. Now I want you to sit together because you are the first group and this doll which symbolizes all Ukrainian women and girls is the emblem of your group.

  Well, who thinks that Ukrainians are religious? Sit together too, because you are the second group and this angel, a spirit, who lives with God in Heaven is the emblem of your group. And all the rest sit also together, so you are the third group and this house shoe, which is a sign of good luck is the emblem of your group.

  Now, we have three groups and I have a task for you. Here I have three pictures with different stereotypes, which are connected with Ukrainians. First one tells us that Ukrainians are very talented, the second picture shows that Ukrainians are religious and the third one shows that Ukrainians are great tea-drinkers. I give all these pictures to you and your task is first to discuss them and ten tell me if they are true and explain your point of view. For this task you’ve got two minutes. Your time is over, the first group, your answer, please. What about the second group? Are Ukrainians religious? The third group, is it true that Ukrainians are great tea-drinkers?

  Well, I think that all groups have coped with their task.

IV. Home lesson check.

T: Now, I want you to open your books at page 112 and we are going to read and to translate the text «Welcome to Ukraine», because your home task was to read and to translate it, but before reading the text, I want you to pay attention to these words and phrases:

independent                                     eastern

a state                                               a resort
