III. Grammar Smart

Pay attention to the spelling of numerals.

Example: two - twenty

three - thirty

four - forty

five - fifty

six - sixty

seven - seventy

eight - eighty

nine - ninety

a) Play a grammar counting game.

Example: A: Ten and twenty

b) Look at the pictures (p. 193), match them to the numerals and make up sentences with them.

Example: Mark is thirteen and he is in Grade 7.

2. Read and Remember!

• If you want to count in numbers greater than 100, use and before the tens.

Example: 325 - three hundred and twenty-five

2006 - two thousand and six

382, 574 - three hundred and eighty two thousand, five hundred and seventy four

Don’t Forget!

• Use the words hundred, thousand, million with the article a or with the word one.

6,000,030 - six million and thirty

• Use the plural ending -s to the words hundred, thousand, million if they are followed by a noun with the preposition of.

V. Time to Read

Read/listen to the dialogue between Steve, Helen and a Kyivite talking about Kyiv’s past and say who knows more about the history of the city.

Talking about Kyiv’s Past

Part One

Steve: Excuse me, can you tell us the way to Andriyivskyi Uzviz?

Kyivite: Sure. It’s over there, up the hill. Can you see that small toy-like structure? It’s St Andrew’s Church. Just go straight ahead.

Steve: Is it the one named after Saint Andrew, the disciple of Jesus Christ?

Kyivite: Exactly. As legend goes, apostle Andrew came to this land in the first century A. D. and predicted that a magnificent city would appear here.

Steve: They say, he put a cross on the hill and later on people built a church on that spot. It was restored several times.

Kyivite: Yes, Kyivites built this building in the 18th century. And since then Andriyivskyi Uzviz has been full of admirers.

Ann: Is the name of the city connected with this story in any way, I wonder?

Kyivite: No, dear. According to another widely known legend, Kyiv was founded by three brothers, Kyy, Shchek, Khoryv, and their sister Lybid. They settled on the hills along the Dnipro, founded a town and named it after the eldest brother.

Part Two

Ann: That reminds me, our History teacher said that it had been told by Nestor, the ancient Russian chronicler, in his immortal work “The Tale of the Bygone Years”.

Kyivite: Good girl! You know so much about the past of our great city.

Steve: Look out there, please! Am I right to believe that those two hills were named after the other two brothers - Shchekavytsa and Khorevytsa?

Kyivite: That’s it. And a narrow river was named Lybid after the sister. It happened more than 1,500 years ago.

Ann: And do you happen to know how it became the capital city? It was in 862 that the Novgorod Prince Oleh and his army reached the hills of Kyiv. They were impressed by its beauty and riches. So they conquered the city and the Prince officially announced Kyiv the capital of Kyivan Rus, the “Mother of all Russian towns”.

Kyivite: You sound like a true chronicler! By the way, tomorrow is the last Sunday of May, that is Kyiv Day.

Ann: Really? How very lucky we are, Steve! Is there going to be an open-air festival?

Kyivite: Certainly. Traditionally, there will be a carnival, sports shows, exhibitions, and fairs.

Steve: I can’t wait to see them all!

Kyivite: You are sure to enjoy every minute of it!

Ann: Thank you very much for such a warm welcome!

Kyivite: Anytime.
