III. Main Part of the Lesson.

Your home task was to read the text "Places of Interest in Great Britain” (exercise 1 page 44) and do different tasks. Let us check up the home task. Firstly give me your copy-books and now answer the questions (exercise 2 page 44).


T. Now listen some texts which contain other facts about places of interest in Great Britain. Be attentive and try to understand as many information as possible. Later on you will do some tasks.

Cardiff (Wales).

Cardiff is the capital of Wales with the population of 300 000.

Cardiff is Wales’ largest city. Its also the country’s main economic, industrial and cultural centre.

Cardiff is situated on the southeast coast of Wales and three rivers, the Taff, the Ely and the Rhymney flow through it into the Bristol Channel.

A large area of parkland lies near the center of Cardiff. The National Museum of Wales, the Law Courts and the University are also situated here. Nearby there is Cardiff Castle, which was built in 1090.Modern rail and road communication link Cardiff with the rest of Great Britain and the airport lies outside the edge of the city.

Edinburgh (Scotland)

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and one of Europe’s finest cities. Every year for three weeks in late summer the city is taken over by the arts. "The Edinburgh Festival” is the best known cultural festival in Britain. There’s always an impressive program of music and theatre, some of which takes place in the streets. Coming north out of Edinburgh you cross the Forth bridge The bridge is so long that it takes over 4 years to paint, by which time they have to start painting all over again, from the beginning. The Forth bridge is on the main route to the Highlands, an area of outstanding beauty, with a romantic past, and it’s home to wild life of all kinds.

On the edge of a large nature reserve is Aviemore, the most important winter sports resort in Britain.

Loch Ness

Not far from Aviemore is a very deep lake which has an air of mystery. It’s name – Loch Ness, Loch being the Gaelic word for lake. It is the biggest lake in Britain and has more water in it than the lakes in England and Wales together! The idea of a monster hiding in its deep waters has been around for a long time, and it even has a nickname, Nessie! Nessie is said to have a long neck, a small head and flippers for swimming. She’s been caught on a camera many times, but some of the photos were obvious fakes.

In 2003, a man walked along the bottom of loch Ness – under water! He wore an old-fashioned diver’s suit and helmet. He said it was cold and he didn’t see any signs of a monster.

Слово вчителя географії:

1) Вступне слово:

Туризм є одним з пріоритетних напрямків розвитку будь-якої країни і України, зокрема. Наприклад, такі країни світу як Великобританія, Іспанія, Італія, Франція, Греція, США щороку мають від 2% до 10% доходу ВНП саме завдяки туризму. А ось деякі острівні країни, як от Сейшельські, Мальдівські острови, Кіпр мають практично 90% ВНП саме завдяки туризму.

До закладів туризму і рекреації належать: санаторії, курорти, пансіонати, туристичні бази тощо.

Туристична галузь має 1/10 частину світового ВВП, у ній працює кожен 12-й житель світу. Прогнозується, що кожне наступне десятиліття доходи від туризму будуть збільшуватися на 4%.

Позитивними рисами для розвитку туризму в Україні є:

- особливості ГП та рельєфу;

- сприятливий клімат;

- багатство природного, історико-культурного та туристично-рекреаційного потенціалу.

2) Основні туристичну регіони України (робота з картою стор. 29 атласу)

- Київ;

- Карпати;

- Крим;

- Прибережні регіони Чорного та Азовського морів (Одеська, Миколаївська, Херсонська, Запорізька, Донецька області);

- Волинь (Швацькі озера);

- Полтавщина (Миргородські мінеральні води)

3) Спостереження за динамікою розвитку закладів санаторно-курортного лікування в Україні (атлас, стор.29)

Слово вчителя географії: захист проектів по Україні

Вступне слово вчителя:

У травні 2007 року в Україні за ініціативи народного депутата Миколи Томенка та з метою розвитку туризму в Україні, було оголошено акцію «Сім чудес України», на яку всі регіони України представили свої природні та історико-культурні об’єкти, які мали б ввійти до переліку семи природних або історико-культурних чудес України. 21 серпня 2007 року було підбито підсумки акції і представлено сім природних та сім історико-культурних чудес України. Більш докладно про історико-культурні об’єкти нам розкажуть учні, які отримали випереджальне завдання і підготували реферати.

Project Work (Presentation)

T. Some of the pupils have quiet different home task. They had to find the additional information in reference books or in the Internet resources and prepare presentation "Places of Interest in Great Britain” and a travel leaflet ”Welcome to Great Britain”. Now let us see the presentation and listen your classmates.

Houses of Parliament

The Palace of Westminster, known also as the Houses of Parliament, is where the two Houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom (the House of Lords and the House of Commons) conduct their sittings. It is the place where laws governing British life are debated and passed.

The Queen rides in a State coach to Westminster to open each new session of Parliament, usually in the second week in November. From the mid­dle of the 11 th century until 1512, the Palace of Westminster was the royal home to the Kings and Queens of England, hence the name.

The Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parlia­ment) contains the bell Big Ben that strikes each quarter of an hour. A light in the clock tower tells when the House of Commons is in session.

Big Ben

Big Ben is one of the most famous landmarks in the world. The clock tower is situated on the banks of the river Thames and is part of the Pal­ace of Westminster.

Officially "Big Ben" does not refer to the whole clock tower (also known as St Stephen's Tower), but to the huge thirteen ton bell.

The Big Ben bell has the following measure­ments: 9'—0" diameter, 7'-6" high, and weighs 13 tons 10 cwts 3 qtrs 15lbs (13,760 Kg) West­minster Abbey

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey is one of the oldest buildings in London and one of the most important reli­gious centers in the country. Many kings and Queens and famous people are buried or com­memorated there. Its founder Edward the Con­fessor, was made a saint after his death and he is buried in a special chapel dedicated to him.

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is one of the most popular landmarks in London. This famous palace, first built in1703, is in the very center of London. . It is two places, not one.

It is the London home of the British Royal family, where children play and grow up. It is also a place, where presidents, kings and politicians go to meet the Queen.

Buckingham Palace is like a small town, with a police station, two sport clubs, two post offices, a hospital, a bar, a disco, a cinema and a swimming pool. There are 600 rooms and three miles of red carpet there. Two men work full-time to look after300 clocks. The palace is surrounded by a 40 acre garden. 40,000 tulips are planted each year in front of Buckingham palace. About 700 people work in the palace.

The Tower of London

It is one of the most ancient buildings in London. The Tower of London was built more than 900 years ago by William the Conqueror to protect and control the city. In the past it was a fortress, a palace and a state prison. Many kings live there until the 17th century, when it became a prison. Now it is a museum, which houses the Crown Jewels and other treasures. About two million people visit it every year. There are six ravens in the Tower of London. They have names, live in their own cages and get money every month. There is a legend that if ravens leave the Tower, the Tower and the British Monarch will fall.

Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar Square was so named in 1830 in honor to commemorate the victory of the Brit­ish Navy over Napoleon in the sea battle at Tra­falgar in 1805. The British fleet was commanded by Admiral Nelson who was killed in this battle. The monument in the center of the square, known as Nelson’s Column, was erected in 1843. It’s pedestal is decorated with four bronze bas-relief of Nelson’s famous naval victories. The metal for this bas-relief was made from canons captured from France.

The Statue of Admiral Nelson faces the sea he loved. The Column is surrounded by four bronze lions. The two beautiful fountains were added later. Now Trafalgar Square is the traditional place for mass meetings.

Bridges over the River Thames in London

Thirty-four bridges span the Thames. The old­est is London Bridge, which was originally made from wood. In 1209 it was replaced by a stone bridge with shops and houses along its sides. Tower Bridge is the most famous. It is more than 100 years old.


About 150 kilometres West of Brighton is Stonehenge. It was built almost 4000 years ago. 80 of its huge stones - some weighing 5 tons - were transported ail the way from West Wales, a journey of 400 kilometres over land and sea. But what was Stonehenge? The most popular view is that it was a temple associated with the Druids, an early British priesthood. These modern-day Druids still regard it as their cathe­dral. Stonehenge is probably much older than the Druids. Experts disa­gree over its purpose, but the most intriguing explanation is that it was a huge astronomical calen­dar or a computer. The stones were precisely placed to line up with the sun and moon at different times of the year. Whatever its purpose, Stonehenge has a magic, an attrac­tion that still draws people to it. Stonehenge is the most famous, but by no means the only prehis­toric sight. Britain, especially the South-West of England, has many such sights: stone circles, hill forts and burial grounds.


Liverpool, the "city of ships”, is England’s second greatest port, ranking after London. The most interesting sight in Liverpool is the docks. They occupy a river frontage of seven miles. The University of Liverpool, established in 1903, is noted for its School of Tropical Medicine. And in the music world Liverpool is a well-known name for it’s the home town of "The Beatles”.


Oxford is the most popular tour­ist attraction in Britain, after London and Stratford-upon-Avon. Ox­ford is mainly famous for its univer­sity, which is the oldest in Britain and the third oldest in Europe.

The university has thirty-five separate colleges. For many years, only five of these colleges were for women. However, since 1979 near­ly all the colleges have accepted both men and women.

Oxford is not only a university city. It's a wonderful place where historic buildings combine with modern buildings of shops, restau­rants and cinemas. It's also a mar­ket town, where ordinary people live and work. In fact, there were

not so many tourists in the 1960s and 1970s in Oxford. The city was quite pleasant then. But now in summer there are too many cars and too many people in Oxford. With over one million visitors a year, it's very difficult nowadays for the residents of Oxford to live there daily lives. Sometimes they feel that. the city doesn't belong to them.


Cambridge is famous throughout the world as one of the two oldest university cities in Britain - Oxford, of course, is the other. The city lies about one hundred kilometres north­east of London in that part of Eng­land called East Anglia, a flat, rural area which is known for its wild bird life and fishing. As drove through the countryside, the most striking phenomenon is the number of small villages with disproportionately large churches - a relic of the mid­dle ages when East Anglia grew rich on the wool trade.

The city, which is situated on the River Cam, is dominated by the magnificent university buildings. The crowded streets are packed with students going about their business on bicycles. But Cam­bridge is also a market town with a history that goes back to Roman times, and nowadays it is home to a number of modern hi-tech industries which, of course, bene­fit from their proximity to the sci­entific expertise for which the uni­versity is so well known.
