Не that travels far knows much.

J. Clarke

                    1. Greeting. Introduction to the lesson

  Teacher -Class

Teacher: Good morning, dear friends. I'm glad to see you. How are you today? I think everything is O.K. Are you ready to start our work?

2. Warming up

T. I want to draw your attention to the blackboard where the quotation from John Clarke is written: "He that travels far knows much" (слайд № 2). I think these words can be the motto of our lesson. Let's try to prove that Clarke was really right. What do you think about this quotation? How do you understand these words? What's your opinion?

(Pupils exchange their opinions and make a word-map using the expressions:

I think...

To my mind...

In my opinion...

It seems to me...)

Possible answers:

Pupil 1. I think it's true. Travelling develops our outlook.

P2. To my mind, if you visit different countries, you get acquainted with traditions and customs of these countries.

P3. No doubt travelling develops our imagination.

P4. Naturally, travelling is exciting, because it means adventure, and adventure is necessary.

P5. That's right. When we travel, we move from one place to another, so travelling gives us movement and keeps us from growing stale and old.

P6. I want to add that travelling gives us knowledge.

P7. I share your opinion and want to add that travelling helps us to study foreign languages alive.

P8. In my opinion travelling is great and exciting. You can see a lot of interesting buildings, castles, monuments and so on.

P9. I support your idea. There is a proverb "Seeing is believing". When I travel, I always try to take pictures of places of interest to enrich my album.

P10. Don't forget, if you travel, you meet different people and make friends. I think it's great to have many friends in foreign countries.

T. Let's summarise everything you have said. Look at the blackboard and read once again why it is necessary for us to travel. (слайд № 3)

Т- Cl

Т – P1, Р2, РЗ...

Т. We are in the capital of the country. I think you are lucky because you are going to see a lot of places of interest, among them: Edinburgh, Workshops of Bagpipes, The Royal Mile, The Palace of Holyroodhouse, King Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh Castle, The Firth of Forth.

T. This presentation will help you to make the excursion alive. Here is our route. Look at the blackboard and read information about the places of interest.

P1. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is one of Britain's most attractive cities.

It is a city for people who like to walk. You are never far from green parks, gardens and hills even in the main shopping streets. It's a busy modern city, but history is everywhere. On the top of the highest hill in Edinburgh there is Edinburgh Castle. Soldiers have marched through its gates for nearly a thousand years. It was the home of Scotland's royal family until the year 1603 when King James the Sixth of Scotland became king of England as well and went south to live in London. (слайд № 9)

P2.This famous road is called the Royal Mile. It begins at the castle and goes eastwards. Off the Royal Mile you can explore old narrow streets on foot. You'll find some interesting shops. (слайд №10)

P3.The kilt, the most important part of Scotland's national dress, is made from tartan cloth. To make a kilt it takes eight metres of tartan cloth. Kilts are worn by men and women, but a man's kilt has a pocket made from leather and silver. It's worn in front and is called a sporran. (слайд № 11)

P4. Bagpipes - the national instrument of Scotland. In this workshop, craftsmen make wooden pipes. The bag is made of leather and covered in tartan. (слайд № 12)

P5. At the other end of the Royal Mile is the Palace of Holyroodhouse. It was built by a Scottish king before Scotland and England were united to make Great Britain. Now Holyroodhouse is a second home for the British king or queen, who usually visit Edinburgh in summer. When the royal family is not there, you can visit the palace. You can see the staterooms and walk around the guldens and the ruins of the abbey, a much older building. (слайд № 13)

P6. Behind the Holyroodhouse is one of the Edinburgh's nine hills. This one is a long-dead volcano; it's called King Arthur's Seat. (слайд № 14)

P7. From the top you can look northwards to the great river, the Firth of Forth, and the road bridge which crosses it. The road bridge is modern, but the rail bridge is quite old. It has carried trains to the Highlands for more than a hundred years. (слайд № 15)

Sincerely yours...

P2. Dear Mary,

As you know I'm in Scotland now. I'm in Edinburgh, the capital of the country. I'm in a pub and listening to strange music of bagpipes. At first it was boring, but now I can understand the beauty of this music. I've bought a souvenir for you. You will like it.
