 Teacher: Good morning, pupils! Glad to see you. How are you today? I hope that you are fine and you’ll be active at the lesson. A lot of people like to travel. So, today we are going to travel to Great Britain and around London. I invite you and our guests to London. But let’s remind the ways of travelling. What way shall we choose? How can we get to Great Britain? Look at the diagram, it will help you.

I think we’ll go there by plane, because it is the fastest way of travelling to Great Britain. And now imagine that we are in London sitting in the red bus, because it is the main kind of travelling in London. Take your sits, please! We start.

Before visiting London let’s review the words.

Look at the pictures, listen and repeat after me and tell what buildings and places in the city you can see.

Now we are ready to continue.
