The Plan of the Lesson.
The beginning of the lesson.
: Good afternoon, our dear guests and pupils.
: Good afternoon.
: Sit down, please.
Introduction of the lesson’s theme.
: I’m glad to see you. How are you? Today we are going to have an
interesting trip together. The theme of our lesson is “London sightseeing
”. I invite you to travel to the capital of the United Kingdom. We are going
to revise all you know about London and do some quizzes.
: Before we start our tour, let’s talk about London in general. I
have some information for you about the main sights of London. Listen to me
carefully, because this will help you with the quizzes.
PUPILS: Listen to the teacher and look at the projecting pictures of the sights
As you know, London stands on the river Thames. London, the capital
of Great Britain, is a very old city. It is two thousand years old. Many years ago
London was a small town on the Thames. Now London is a big port and a beautiful
city with large squares and parks. About 8 million people live here. London is one
of the biggest cities in the world. The Thames is not a long river. The English
people call it “The Father of London”. London began on the Thames.
And now we start our tour from Tower Bridge. Tower Bridge is the only
Thames bridge, which can be raised.
If you want to see London the best place to go is The Eye. London Eye
is a big wheel on the river Thames. The Eye is very popular. Every day 1600
people go to the eye. There are 33 capsules and one ride takes 30 minutes. The Eye
is very tall – 133 meters. At the top of the Eye you get a great view of London.
You can see Buckingham Palace.
is the London home of the kings and queens of
Great Britain. Now the Queen Elizabeth lives there. When the flag is flying on the
top, she is at home. Buckingham Palace has 600 rooms, a swimming pool, a
cinema, a ballroom and a garden. In summer the Queen gives three garden parties
for about 9000 guests. The ceremony of the Changing of the Guard at
Buckingham Palace is a great tourist attraction. It takes place every day at 11.30
a.m. and lasts half an hour. To the sounds of music the guardsmen in their
traditional suits arrive and give the palace keys to another group.
On the right side of the Thames you can see the Tower of London. The
Tower of London is a very old building. It is 9 hundred years old. In the early days
of the history of England the English Kings lived here. Then it was a prison where
many people died. Black ravens had much food near the walls of the Tower in
those years. Black ravens live outside the Tower now. The English people like
them very much. A man looks after the ravens and gives them food in the morning
and in the evening. The ravens have names. The legend says that without them the
Tower will fall. The Tower of London is a museum now. In the museum you can
see many old guns. At 10 o’clock every evening the guards lock the big doors of
the Tower for the night.
And now we are making our way to the Houses of Parliament. The
famous clock Big Ben stands near the Houses of Parliament. The country’s leaders
speak in the Houses of Parliament. The men and women there are the voice of the
British people. You can see Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament from
Westminster Bridge. Tourists in London always want to visit Westminster and see
Big Ben. They want to see the clock in its tower and to hear the bells. Big Ben is
really a bell. It is a big bell. The bell weights 13 tons. The man who built Big Ben
was very tall and workers and his friends called him Big Ben. So the English
people called the bell Big Ben too.
We are coming now to Westminster Abbey
. Westminster Abbey is a
historic building. It is a symbol of England. The coronation of all British kings and
queens takes place in Westminster Abbey. Some famous English people are also
buried here. Westminster Abbey is a very beautiful building.
You can see Trafalgar Square it is a famous square in the centre of London. In
the middle of it a monument to Admiral Nelson is situated. The monument
includes four bronze lions. To the left you can see the National Gallery. It has a
fine collection of European paintings.
Go for a walk to St. James Park or to Hyde Park.
Hyde Park is the famous park in London. Londoners can walk and run in the park,
eat their sandwiches, talk, sunbathe, read books and enjoy music. There are no
signs like "Do not walk on the grass". In the park anyone can stand up and say
what they want. It is a very democratic park.
My dear students, our London sightseeing tour is over. I hope you liked
it. Thank you for attention.
