1. More than 80 percent of New Zealand’s population are Britons or Europeans. That's why the New Zealand school system is similar to the British one. Education is free and compulsory for children between the ages of 6 and 16.The school year starts in January (after the summer holidays) and ends in December. In most schools wearing a school uniform is obligatory. For New Zealand teenagers daily life takes place in school where they stay up to the late afternoon.

2. Canada occupies most of the northern North America continent as well as some islands. It stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west. It's also washed by the Arctic Ocean in the north. The country was discovered in 1497 by John Cabot, an Italian sea captain. About 2% of the Canadian territory is covered with ice. The eastern part of the country is mainly valleys and plains. The western territories are made up of the Cordilleras.

3. Most Americans simply call the Independence Day the “Fourth of July”. It always falls on this day, and it celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. At that time, the people of the 13 British colonies were involved in a war which had begun in 1775. The colonists were fighting for freedom from the English. The Declaration of Independence stated it clearly. For the first time in history the colonies were defined as the United States of America.

4. With great weather, great events and terrific crowds Australia Day in Melbourne in 2010 was one of the best ever! It is a day for all Australians to get together and, in whatever way they choose, celebrate being Australian. 1788 is when the British Fleet first arrived at Sydney Cove and lifted the British flag. Now, major cities throughout the country celebrate the national day with parades, free food, and different events.

D. GOING OUT

G. NATIONAL LANGUAGES

H. EATING OUT

1. Belgium has always had a lot more than the faceless administrative buildings that you can see in the outskirts of its capital, Brussels. A number of beautiful historic cities and Brussels itself offer impressive architecture, lively nightlife, first-rate restaurants and other numerous attractions for visitors. Today, the old-fashioned idea of ‘boring Belgium' has been well and truly forgotten, as more and more people discover its very individual charms for themselves.

2. Nature in Belgium is varied. The rivers and hills of the Ardennes in the southeast contrast sharply with the rolling plains, which make up much of the northern and western countryside. The most notable features are the great forest near the frontier with Germany and Luxembourg and the wide, sandy beaches of the northern coast.

3. It is easy both to enter and to travel around pocket-sized Belgium which is divided into the Dutch-speaking north and the French-speaking south. Officially the Belgians speak Dutch, French and German. Dutch is slightly more widely spoken than French, and German is spoken the least. The Belgians, living in the north, will often prefer to answer visitors in English rather than French, even if the visitor's French is good.

4. Belgium has a wide range of hotels from 5-star luxury to small family pensions and inns. In some regions of the country, farm holidays are available. There visitors can (for a small cost) participate in the daily work of the farm. There are plenty of opportunities to rent furnished villas, flats, rooms, or bungalows for a holiday period. These holiday houses and flats are comfortable and well-equipped.

5. The Belgian style of cooking is similar to French, based on meat and seafood. Each region in Belgium has its own special dish. Butter, cream, beer and wine are generously used in cooking. The Belgians are keen on their food, and the country is very well supplied with excellent restaurants to suit all budgets. The perfect evening out here involves a delicious meal, and the restaurants and cafes are busy at all times of the week.

6. As well as being one of the best cities in the world for eating out (both for its high quality and range), Brussels has a very active and varied nightlife. It has 10 theatres which produce plays in both Dutch and French. There are also dozens of cinemas, numerous discos and many night-time cafes in Brussels. Elsewhere, the nightlife choices depend on the size of the town, but there is no shortage of fun to be had in any of the major cities.

7. There is a good system of underground trains, trams and buses in all the major towns and cities. In addition, Belgium's waterways offer a pleasant way to enjoy the country. Visitors can take a one-hour cruise around the canals of Bruges, (sometimes described as the Venice of the North) or an extended cruise along the rivers and canals linking the major cities of Belgium and the Netherlands.


Task 5. Прочитайте тексты и установите соответствие между заголовками 1–8 и текстами А–G. Запишите свои ответы в таблицу. Используйте каждую букву только один раз. В задании есть один лишний заголовок.


1. Name meaning

5. Pumpkin recipes

2. Pumpkin: brief facts

6. Pumpkin’s magical popularity

3. Cooking with pumpkin

7. Growing a pumpkin

4. Multifunctional use of pumpkin

8. Pumpkin in the learning process


A Pumpkin is a large round fruit with a thick orange skin and large seeds. Pumpkins are 90% water but they contain potassium and vitamin A. Six of seven continents can grow pumpkins. Nowadays pumpkins have come to symbolize not only the lovely color of the autumn but the spirit of the season as well. A sizable number of movies were made with pumpkin and Halloween themes. Most memorable, perhaps, is the pumpkin carriage in Cinderella.

B Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Native American Indians ate pumpkins for centuries before the Europeans landed. Seeds dating back to 7000 to 5500 B.C. from related plants have been found in Mexico. References to pumpkins date back many centuries, too. The word pumpkin originated from the Greek word for "large melon" which is "pepon." "Pepon" was changed by the French into "pompon." The English changed "pompon" to "Pumpion."

C In the United States, pumpkins go hand in hand with the autumn holidays of Thanksgiving, and, of course, Halloween. On almost every Thanksgiving table there is the customary 'Pumpkin Pie'. Pumpkins are carved into decorated lanterns for Halloween. Pumpkin is one of the important symbols of the harvest festival and has been an American favourite for over 400 years now. A lot of autumn festivals are dedicated to the pumpkin. Farmers from all over the US compete to determine who grow the heaviest pumpkin.

D In the USA, pumpkin is a very popular Thanksgiving dish. We don't know for sure whether pumpkin was one of the dinner dishes at the first Thanksgiving dinners. But pumpkins were used in all traditional meals long before the arrival of the first Europeans. Most parts of the pumpkin are suitable for eating, including the shell, the seeds, the leaves, and even the flowers. When ripe, the pumpkin can be boiled, baked, steamed, or roasted.

E Besides being used as jack-o'-lanterns at Halloween, pumpkins are used to make pumpkin pies, сookies and soup. Pumpkin is a warm-season vegetable. If you want to have a nice pumpkin for Halloween, plant the seeds from late May in northern regions to early July in southern regions. Pumpkins can be harvested whenever they are a deep, solid color (orange for most varieties) and the coat is hard. Cut off pumpkins carefully and leave 3 to 4 inches of stem attached.

F Pumpkins are the real October icons – the fruit of the month, if you will. Since pumpkins are used as a decoration for Halloween, they can be seen everywhere! They're readily available, inexpensive materials for some wonderful classroom experiences! Their size and color, smell and taste make them perfect for observation and exploration. Working in groups students can search, suggest, ask questions, predict, and estimate the number of seeds in a set of pumpkins.

G The pumpkin has been very important for centuries. It has been popular with wizards, witches and fairies. Maybe that’s why it is celebrated in so many festivals, folklore and fiction. People make jack-o'-lanterns at Halloween in the USA. In European and American fairy-tales witches often turn people into pumpkins. Even in modern the Harry Potter novels pumpkin juice is the favourite drink of the students of Hogwart’s school.

A New Young Player

For our interview this week, we talked to Gamie Zvernison, the newest and youngest football player with the Manchester United Young Players team. Jamie was in a football skills competition with fifteen other young players and he was the winner!

Jamie is still very young, only sixteen, but now he’s going to play for Manchester United. He told me that he feels very happy and excited about this because he has always dreamed of playing football for a famous club. He has played football all his life and he remembers scoring his first goal at school when he was only six years old.

Because Jamie has to spend a lot of time with the Manchester United Young Players team, he can’t go to school. Lucky him! But the club makes sure he continues his lessons with a teacher at his home so Jamie does not miss anything from school, including homework!

Jamie is able to phone his friends every day and sometimes he sends them an email. He can’t see them as much as he wants to but they often come to watch him play football for the Manchester United Young Players team at weekends.

Shopping Hours in Britain

Shopping hours in Britain are changing. Until a few years ago, shops opened at nine o’clock in the morning and close at half past five or six o’clock in the evening. Some also closed for an hour for lunch. In many towns, shops were closed on Wednesday afternoons. On Sundays, nothing was open. But now some shops are open longer hours. Some big shops and many supermarkets never close! If you need a litre of milk or some bread at midnight, you can easily buy it.

For people who work long hours or people who often work at night or early in the morning, like doctors, the new shopping hours are good. If someone finishes work at five o’clock in the morning, they can go to the supermarket on their way home and buy some breakfast or a newspaper or anything else they may need.

But not everyone thinks the new shopping hours are a good thing. Some people say that Sunday is a holiday – who wants to work in a supermarket on a Sunday? But shops are very busy at the weekend and longer shopping hours are here to stay.

A) True B) False C) Not stated

2. A few years ago, shops also closed on Saturday afternoon.

A) True B) False C) Not stated

1. Jazz was created by white Americans.

2. It is a mixture of work songs and church music.

3.Jazz bands were first organised at the beginning of the 19th century.

4.Jazz sounds the same each time it is performed.

5. Today people only play jazz in New Orleans.


Jazz.

Americans have contributed to many art forms, but jazz, a type of music, is the only art form that was created in the United States. Jazz was created by black Americans. Many blacks were brought from Africa to America as slaves. The black slaves sang and played the music of their homeland.

Jazz is a mixture of many different kinds of music. It is a combination of the music of West Africa, the work songs the slaves sang, and religious music. Jazz bands formed in the late 1800s. They played in bars and clubs in many towns and cities of the South, especially New Orleans.

New Orleans is an international seaport, and people from all over the world come to New Orleans to hear jazz. Improvisation is an important part of jazz. This means that the musicians make the music up as they go along, or create the music on the spot. This is why a jazz song might sound a little different each time it is played.

Jazz became more and more popular. By the 1920s, jazz was popular all over the Untied States. By the 1940s, you could not only hear jazz in clubs and bars, but in concert halls as well. Today, people from all over the world play jazz. Jazz musicians from the United States, Asia, Africa, South America and Europe meet and share their music at festivals on every continent. In this way jazz continues to grow and change.

1. The first American films weren’t made in California.

2. In 1917 a director went to California because he had a cold.

3. The first movie studio was built in Hollywood in 1918.

4. Nobody knows Bette Davis and Clark Gable.

5. Today many studios have moved to Beverly Hills and Malibu.


Hollywood.

To many people the word Hollywood has two meanings. Hollywood is an area in Los Angeles and also the Americana movie industry.

Hollywood was just farmland at the beginning of the century. Early American movies were made in other places, for example, in New York or Chicago. In 1917 a director was making a movie in Chicago. Because of the cold weather, he couldn’t finish the film. He took a trip to southern California and there he found just the weather and the scenery he needed to finish the movie. The director realised that southern California was the perfect place for making movies. The next year his company built a movie studio in Hollywood. Other companies followed. Before long nearly all American movie studios were in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

The next thirty years were Hollywood’s greatest years. Thousands of movies were made, most by a few large and powerful studios. Directors, actors and writers worked for these studios. They made some films that today are considered great art. Many famous and glamorous film stars, like Bette Davis and Clark Gable lived in Hollywood.

Today, Hollywood is not what it used to be. Many movies are made outside Hollywood. Many movie stars have moved in areas like Beverly Hills and Malibu.

The koala is a small bear-like animal that looks like a soft toy. The animal is cute and non-aggressive, but it’s difficult to see a koala in the Zoo and no one ever keeps them as pets. Why is it so? The main reason why people shouldn’t try to take koalas out from their natural home is their diet. It’s a strict diet of eucalyptus leaves as koalas practically

never eat anything else. In Australia there are over 600 types of eucalyptus, but koalas eat only 40–50 varieties with only about 10 being preferred. And even if you find the koala’s most favourite tree and plant it in your backyard, you won’t be able to supply your koala-pet with food anyway. The thing is that koalas eat only fresh young leaves, and the tree has few of them. So, to keep a koala happy and healthy, you would have to plant about 100 eucalyptus trees!

It’s difficult to explain why koalas love eucalyptus leaves so much. The leaves are tough and feel like rubber. They have very few calories and they are poisonous to most animals. Koalas, however, cope with such a diet easily. Nature has equipped them with specialised adaptations. Each koala eats approximately 200 to 500 grams of leaves per day. They are very slow eaters and they manage to get the maximum amount of energy from such a small amount of food. They also sleep for up to 18 hours per day in order to conserve energy.

Koalas spend all their lives on eucalyptus trees and they don’t have any need to leave them. Normally the animals don’t drink water as they receive it from the leaves. For this reason the koala got its name from an ancient Aboriginal word meaning "no drink".

Koalas live in societies, just like humans, so they need to be able to come into contact with other koalas. They live in suitable eucalyptus forests which are large enough to support a healthy koala population and to allow for expansion by maturing young koalas. In spite of their peaceful and sleepy look, koalas are highly territorial animals and don’t allow strangers to approach their “home trees” and “food trees”. The koala was hunted for its fur at the beginning of the 20th century and the animals were in danger of extinction. Fortunately, the population has been restored and today the Australian government doesn't consider the koala as endangered.

Task 13. Прочитайте текст о Мальтийских островах. Определите, какие из приведённых утверждений A5–A8 соответствуют содержанию текста (1 – True), какие не соответствуют (2 – False) и о чём в тексте не сказано, то есть на основании текста нельзя дать ни положительного, ни отрицательного ответа (3 – Not stated).

The Maltese Islands are a group of little islands in the Mediterranean Sea. The population of Malta is about 400,000 people. In spite of being so small in size, Malta is quite a famous place and lots of tourists visit it every year. Tourists in Malta have many kinds of entertainment to choose from. Clear and warm water is full of marine life and attracts divers and people who enjoy swimming and sailing. The place is also unique for people who are interested in history and architecture as there are lots of historical buildings, temples and cathedrals there.

There’s the evidence that the first settlers appeared in Malta about 7,000 years ago, so this is one the oldest places on the Earth inhabited by people. The Maltese are proud of their unique history. They survived through the Arabs and Roman occupation, and they remember the knights of Malta, Napoleon and Nelson. They do their best to keep their history and traditions and are always glad to share it with tourists. Band clubs are part of the social and cultural history of the Maltese Islands. They see their aim in spreading the culture and teaching of music. The idea of forming some music societies or band clubs appeared in the second part of the 19th century. Small bands were formed in little villages. Anyone could join them. As most participants could not afford to buy a musical instrument of their own, well–to–do villagers helped to pay for the instruments on the condition that the musicians would perform at their village feasts. Today, according to the latest survey by the statistics office, the total number of bandsmen/women is over 4000. Many well–known musicians started their career in a local band club and performed at their village feasts.

1 Malta is a good place for people who like watching underwater life.

A) True B) False C) Not stated

2 About 7,000 tourists come to Malta every year.

A) True B) False C) Not stated

3 Band clubs were formed in Malta more than a century ago.

A) True B) False C) Not stated

4 When the first music societies were formed only well-to-do people could join the

band.

A) True B) False C) Not stated
