Listen to the information about the south of England and answer the questions.
1. Why does the most population of England live in the south?
2. What attracts tourists to visit this part of England?
Nearly half of England’s population lives on the south of England and most of the people live in London and the area around London, since that is where most of the jobs are based.
Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, which is called the Garden of England, is the home of the Archbishop of the Church of England. The fourteenth-century poet, Chaucer, wrote The Canterbury Tales, a collection of stories told by a group of pilgrims on their way to the town.
Brighton is the largest holiday resort on the south coast. It was once a small fishing village, in 1724, when the Prince Regent, later King George IV, started going to Brighton to swim in the sea, the town became very fashionable.
Further west along the coast is Bournemouth, also a holiday resort. Both Brighton and Bournemouth have many language schools, which give them a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere, especially in the summer.
Holiday resorts in the counties of Devon and Cornwall often have palm trees growing on the sea front. St Ives, a Cornish fishing village, has always attracted painters and in 1993 a new modern art gallery was opened.
Listen to the information about a British icon.
1. What icon is it about?
2. Why did the rose become the symbol of England?
3. Why were many pubs and inns named the Rose?
4. What emblem do English rugby teams have on their badges?
The national flower of England is the rose. No wonder so many people voted it a national icon.
It all started during the time of the Wars of the Roses — civil wars (1455- 1485) between the royal house of Lancaster (whose emblem was a red rose) and the royal house of York (whose emblem was a white rose).
At the end of the war the two roses were combined in the Tudor rose. The idea belonged to Henry VII, the first Tudor monarch and the father of Henry VIII. Henry was a Lancastrian, but he fell in love with Elisabeth of York, married her — and united the two houses. Looking for a symbol of this union, he chose a red rose with a white rose in it. During the Tudor period, hundreds of inns were named the Rose — to show loyalty to the royal family. There are still many pubs and hotels all over the country named after this flower.
In 1871, the newly formed Rugby Football Union selected an England team to play the first ever international match against Scotland. The committee chose a red rose as the team’s badge. Although England lost the match, held in Edinburgh, the country’s rugby teams have worn roses ever since.
