IV. Time to Read

Read a letter of the English boy Phil. Choose the right answers to the questions.

I am especially proud of a national hero of Britain, Robert Scott, who made risky journeys to Antarctica at the beginning of the 20th century. His dream was to be the first person at the South Pole and he reached it in 1910, but when he arrived there, he found a tent and the Norwegian flag. It meant that he lost the race against Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian explorer. They were competing on the way to the Pole. Amundsen and Scott were very different from each other and made very different plans. Amundsen took sleds and dog teams as the great Arctic explorers did. Scott took ponies and a few dogs. He also had bad luck with the weather - days of blizzards and strong winds. Robert kept a diary in which he described his hard journey. The most tragic thing happened on the return journey to his ship - he died of extreme cold and hunger.

But the name of Robert Scott as a great explorer of Antarctica lives on in my heart. I can’t help admiring his courage and will power.
