The scenario of the open lesson
Teacher. Hello, boys and girls! We are going to have some fun today. We are going to practice Satellite Link “Moscow – Washington D.C” You have to imagine that you are Russian and American students on TV. Everybody has an opportunity to express his or her opinion. I hope you’ll find something interesting and new for yourselves. Let’s start.
AP.Hello, Katya. Nice to meet you.
RP. Hello, Jane. I’m pleased to meet you and your friends.
AP. It is simple fantastic that we have an opportunity to gather together. You are in your Ostankino studio. And we are in our CNN studio. Let me introduce my friends ( enumerate the
RP. Thanks. And these are my friends. ( enumerate the names).
I told them much about Washington and my classmates want to know about your capital as much as possible. We have prepared many questions. At that time we have prepared some
information about our capital. But I want to start our lesson with a song. Let’s sing “May there always be sunshine”
AP. We are ready. (песня)
RP. Moscow is the capital of Russia. It one of the biggest and most beautiful cities in the world. Moscow is important political, cultural, educational, scientific and industrial center of
Russia. It is Moscow where the Russian Government seats.
Moscow is a city well – known all over the world. Many tourists come to our country to visit Moscow and to see its places of interest and parks, wonderful monuments and museums, cathedrals and churches.
Moscow is the pride of Russian people.
AP. We live in Washington. It is one of the biggest and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It has little industry. One reason Washington looks different from other cities is that there are no buildings in the city more than 40 meters tall. There are no skyscrapers because they would hide the city’s monuments from view.
RP. Could you tell me why there is “D.C.” near the name of your capital. You say “Washington D.C.”
AP. OK, Washington D.C. doesn’t belong to a state, you know. It’s a city and district, the District of Columbia.
AP. Don’t confuse Washington D.C. With the state of Washington, which is located in the North – West of the USA. Washington D.C. is located on the East Coast. (to show on the map).
RP. Let us take a sightseeing tour round Moscow. It is difficult to describe Moscow in a few words. And it is very difficult to see all the places of interest.
AP. As we know, Red Square and the Kremlin are the most interesting places in Moscow, aren’t they?
RP. Yes, right you are. The first place the tourists go to Moscow is Kremlin. One can’t imagine Moscow without the Kremlin, which is the heart of the city. (to show the picture.)
RP. Originally the Kremlin was a fortress. Its walls are very high and thick. And do you have alike place in Washington?
AP. Sure. The White House is the oldest public building. It is the official residence of the Presidents. The rooms for public functions are on the first floor; the second and the third floors are used as the residence of the President and the First Family. There are 132 rooms in the White House. (presentation)
We heard about the Tsar – Bell and the Tsar – Cannon. Could you tell us some words about it?
RP. Among the historical monuments in the Kremlin the famous ones are the Tsar – Bell and the Tsar – Cannon. They are the biggest bell and cannon in the world. The Tsar – Bell weighs over 200 tons and it was made by 2 Russian masters, Ivan Motorin and his son Mikhail in 1733 – 1735. The Tsar – Cannon is older than the Tsar – Bell. It was made in 1586 by Andrei Chokhov and it weighs 40 tones. The Tsar – Cannon is over 5 meters long. (to show a picture.)
AP. And which is the most important tower of the Kremlin?
RP. The most important tower of the Kremlin is Spasskaya. It often serves as a symbol of the country. We can hear the chime of the Spasskaya Tower clock by radio.
RP. I think there are many monuments and memorials which were built in honor of your well – know persons.
AP. You are quite right. For example, Washington Monument, which is 555 feet tall and provides a panoramic view of Washington D.C. There are also memorials, built in honor of Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln.
RP. I heard the Capitol is the tallest building in Washington. It is shown in American films very often. The Capitol is located opposite the Washington Monument. Am I right?
AP. Absolutely. The Capitol is surrounded by a beautiful garden with many trees and flowers.
RP. And it is a place where laws are made, isn’t it?
AP. Sure. I want to add some words. The National Mall is the area between the Capitol and the Washington Monument. Nine of the Smithsonian museums are located here. And if I were in
Moscow I’d like to see Red Square, of course.
RP. Sure. Red Square is one of the most important and beautiful sights. It is famous for the Historical Museum, St. Basil’s Cathedral and the Monument to Minin and Pozharsky. The
Monument was erected in 1818 to commemorate the liberation of the Russian land from foreign invaders.(presentation).
AP. And when did the history of Moscow begin?
RP. The history of Moscow began in the year 1147; it was founded by Prince Yuri Dolgoruky. In 2015 we will celebrate its 868 th anniversary. And how old is Washington?
AP. Washington is rather younger than Moscow. It was chosen as our capital in 1800.
RP. George Washington was the first President and your capital was named after him, wasn’t it?
AP. Of course, you are quite right. George Washington played a great role in the history of our country. He led the American army in many battles during the War for American Independence.
RP. As far as I know not only George Washington was a great president in your country. Thomas Jefferson, the 3d American president is famous for his Declaration of Independence and your 16th president Abraham Lincoln is famous for his Emancipation Proclamation.
AP. Oh I see, you know our history quite well. You can find the writings of Thomas Jefferson on the walls of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington. (presentation)
“We hold these truths to be self – evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”.
(Declaration of Independence)
And the Emancipation Proclamation freed the blacks in the South from slavery, you know.
AP. I think, it will be interesting to speak about culture in our countries.
RP. It is very interesting because the museums, art galleries, theatres and monuments make Moscow a global cultural centre. Every day thousands of people visit the State Tretyakov
Gallery and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts. Moscow theatres are famous all over the world. The best – known of them is the Bolshoi Theatre.
AP. There are a lot of libraries, museums, art galleries in Washington, for example, you can see The National Gallery of Art. It is one of the finest picture galleries in America. The NASA Museum is devoted to the US achievements in the exploration of space.
RP. Dear friends, I think our tour is over. I hope very much that you have enjoyed this tour.
AP. Oh, we like Russian songs very much. Let’s sing one of our favorite songs “Moscow Suburb Nights”. (песня)
Teacher. Dear friends! We are satisfied with your work. And I’d like to say :”The more you live, the more you see, the more you see, the more you know.”
Thank you and good – bye.
