Lesson 41

1. Listen and read the dialogue. Act it out in pairs.

Jane: Do you like holidays?

Buggy: What a silly question you ask. Of course, I do. Tell me who doesn’t like holidays.

Jane: What’s your favourite holiday?

Buggy: Christmas.

Jane: Do you know anything about this holiday?

Buggy: Well…, I am not sure.

Jane: I ask silly questions but it isn’t wise to know nothing about your favourite holiday. I’d like to tell you the Christmas Story. Listen…

2. Listen to the New Year greetings and learn them.


Each time an old year closes

And we start a year that’s new

We think of those we care about

As I now think of you.

And so for you, my special friend,

I wish with all my heart

Happiness to fill each day

Of the year that we now start.


New Year greetings come to you

Along with heartful wishes too.

May all you do meet great success,

And bring you every happiness.


New Year is there for great resolution

That changes our life for ever

May all your New Year resolutions

And dreams comes true. Happy New Year!

3. Listen and read the text.

Make up the outline of the story.


This is Mary. She lived many years ago, but such a wonderful thing happened to her that we still remember and love her.

One day an angel appeared to Mary. «You are blessed (благословенна) among women», the angel said. «And you are going to have a son, whom you are going to name Jesus. He is going to be called (бути названим) the son of God (Бог), and his kingdom (царство) is not going to end.»

«I am glad to serve the Lord (Господь)», said Mary. Then the angel left her. Mary married a good man from Nazareth (м. Назарет). His name was Joseph, and he was a carpenter. One day they went to Bethlehem (м. Вефпеєм) to pay taxes (податки). And there Mary bore her son. That night a bright star appeared in the East. Three wise men followed the star. Then it stopped over the place where Jesus was born.

The child grew up strong in spirit (дух) and wisdom (мудрість). And Mary knew the grace of God (спава Господня) was with him.

4. Retell the text in exercise 3 according to the outline you made up.

5. Look at the list of presents. Which of them are appropriate (пасують) for Christmas and New Year holidays. Practise speaking as in the model.

Model: I think a pair of skiing gloves is a good present for New Year holidays.

I’ll give this present to my cousin.

Skiing gloves, a box of chocolate, a fur hat, sun glasses, an umbrella, Christmas decorations.

6. Read the words of the song in English and in Ukrainian, learn them and try to sing together with your teacher.

Silent night, holy night,

All is calm, all is bright.

Round yon virgin Mother and Child

Holy infant so tender and mild,

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace.

Свята ніч, тиха ніч.

Ясність б’є від зірниць,

Дитинонька Пресвята,

Така ясна, мов зоря,

Спочиває в тихім сні.

Спочиває в тихім сні.

7. Read the rhymes and learn one of them.


One day we built a snowman,

We built him out of snow;

You should have seen how fine he was,

All white from top to toe.

We poured some water over him,

To freeze his legs and ears;

And when we went indoors to bed,

We thought he’d last for years.

But, in the night a warmer kind

Of wind began to blow;

And Jack Frost cried and ran away,

And with him went the snow.

When we went out next morning

To bid our friend «Good Day»,

There wasn’t any snowman there…

He’d melted right away!


We are little icicles

Melting in the sun.

Can you see our tiny teardrops

Falling one by one?


January is here —

A fine new start

For a whole new year.

The snow comes down

In the dark of night.

When we awake

The world is white.

In January

When there’s snow,

We get our sleds

And away we go.
