IV. Word Smart

1. Read the introduction to Mike’s travelogue and say what he has already seen and done in Britain.



My first impressions of Britain are divided into three parts. History, high-tech and great environment best describe the country. The most shocking thing is history which you can see everywhere: hard grey-stone cathedrals and castles, centuries old, with fast trains and busy highways, automatic doors and loads of fast escalators just round the corner. Then the environment here is quiet and clean. The first night I felt so scared - it was so silent outside. I found many small animals - squirrels, hedgehogs, and rabbits. All these prove the good surroundings.

2. Group the words from the box according to three content areas. Say how the knowledge of history, high-tech and environment helps the travellers to be: environmentally friendly / digital literate / many-sided.

Example: The environment in Britain is clean, because the British take care of it.

3. Complete Mike’s travelogue entry.

… made a great impression on me. I have seen many … They are so … . Steve showed me some …. I think they are absolutely …. I’m also going to …. I don’t want to miss the opportunity to … .

At Home:

Take photos of a historical monument, a high-tech construction and a place of natural beauty where you live and describe them as if you are a tourist.

V. Time to Read

1. Read the five parts of Mike’s travelogue and match them to the route items on the map.

The Lake District. The Highlands. Loch Ness. Mount Snowdon. Lough Neagh.

_____ We have tried to discover its mystery this afternoon! They say there is a large dinosaur-like ’monster’ living in the lake. People have been looking for it for over 100 years. Believe it or not, some visitors sort of saw it and even took pictures of the monster. We were not that lucky. Our guide said that the huge size and depth of the lake gives the monster many places to hide. Who knows if it is just a tourist business trick or not. Anyway, I have bought souvenirs of Nessy at the museum shop to remember it by.

______ On the last day of our trip, Steve said we shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see the largest freshwater lake in the country. It is 30 km to the west of Belfast from where we were flying back to London later in the afternoon. An old Irish story tells how the lake appeared. Ireland’s legendary giant Finn McCool took up the portion of the land and tossed it at a Scottish rival. When we got to the lake, it was extremely rough as there was a strong wind. Yet we saw many bird watchers from different parts of the country and a lot of birds round the lake.

______ We left on Tuesday morning from London to Windermere.

The train ride was a long one but it was worth it. This area is one of the most beautiful corners of England, a combination of the highest mountain peaks, deepest valleys and longest lakes in the country. No wonder, the famous English poet William Wordsworth, who was born and spent most of his life there, wrote these lines about it:

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o’er vales and hills …

______ Climbing up this mountain isn’t as easy as climbing the bronze lions in Trafalgar Square, I must admit. In the guidebook I found out that it is 1,085 metres high. Steve advised me to take the easiest route to the top - the 8 km track. It turned out to be the hardest mountain walk I have ever taken. It took us about four hours to get to the top and - what a pleasant surprise! - there was a cafe at the top. We got a mug of soup there as it was cold. We were feeling tired and decided to get the train back down.

______ Today «my heart’s in the …» as Robert Burns famously put it. It is rather wild and I have already seen an eagle and a deer with my own eyes. We also had a short stay in Inverness, the capital of this area, and had a unique chance to watch a traditional Scottish game - ’tossing the caber’. The caber is the trunk of a fir tree which weighs about 100 kilos. One of the men threw it so that it rolled completely in the air. It was fantastic! By the way, all the men wore kilts.

to wander to wonder

See First Aid Kit:

Word meaning 3, p. 239

Across Cultures: Great Britain

Windermere - найбільше природне озеро в Англії

Inverness - місто-порт у Шотландії

Belfast - столиця Північної Ірландії

Robert Burns - відомий шотландський поет

2. Fill in wonder or wander.

Example: I don’t … you’re tired. → I don’t wonder you’re tired.

1. «I … ed lonely as a cloud.»

2. What are they going to do now, I …?

3. He was just … ing the streets of London.

4. I’ll … around the lake, OK?

5. I … if I will be lucky to see Nessy with my own eyes.

3. Read the sentences about:

• real things;

• imaginary things.

Say which of them have made a great impression on you.

4. Summarize your background knowledge about each part of Britain. Say what new facts you’ve learned about:

Scotland • England • Northern Ireland • Wales

Example: As for me, I knew about the geography of Scotland but some facts about its lakes and wild life were new for me.
