While- listening activity:
T.: I want to tell you some words about St. Valentine’s Day. Look at the board and listen to me attentively.
St. Valentine’s Day has roots in several different legends.
300 years after the death of Jesus Christ, the Roman emperors still demanded that everyone believe in the Roman gods. Valentine, a Christian priest, had been thrown into the prison for his teachings.
On February 14th Valentine was beheaded. The night before he was executed, he wrote the jailor’s daughter a farewell letter, signing it, “ From Your Valentine.”
Another legend tells us that this same Valentine, well-loved by all, wrote notes from his jail cell to children and friends who missed him.
Another Valentine was an Italian bishop who lived at about the same time. He was imprisoned because he secretly married couples, contrary to the laws of the Roman emperor.
Post- listening activity:
T. : And now let’s do True or False task:
1) There is only one legend about St. Valentine’s Day.
2) Valentine was a Christian priest.
3) Valentine was beheaded on January 14th.
4) Valentine was well-loved by all.
5) Another Valentine was an English bishop who lived at about the same time.

T. : Each group of pupils had to find some information about St. Valentine’s Day. I know that one group has prepared a play. Let’s watch it.
( the scenario of the play is in the supplement )
T. : I think that everybody liked the play , thank you, pupils. And now listen to another groups. ( pupils demonstrate their project works )
T. : Everybody has prepared well. And I want to add some information:
1. Many countries celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 14th of February.
2. St. Valentine’s Day is now a day for sweethearts. It is the day that you
show your friend or loved one that you care. You can send candy to
someone. Or you can send roses, the flowers of love. Most people send ,,valentines’’, greeting cards.
3. On Valentine’s Day people send greeting cards called ,,valentines’ ’to their sweethearts, friends and members of their families.
Valentine’s Day is a day to share loving feelings with friends and family.
This is a happy day because it is specially dedicated to celebrate love, affection and friendship.
In Britain people spend 22 million pound sterlings on Valentine’s Day. Romantic people are buying 7 million red roses! In London a single red rose costs a young lover up to 10 pound sterlings!
In England schoolchildren decorate their classrooms with bright red paper hearts. They celebrate the day in their classrooms. They also make valentine cards for their friends and parents.
Valentines can be sentimental, romantic and heartfelt. They can be funny and friendly. If the sender is shy, valentines can be anonymous.
Americans of all ages love to send and receive valentines. Valentines have hearts, the symbol of love, on them.
At schools children make valentines for their classmates and put them in a large-decorated box, similar to a mailbox. On February 14th, the teacher opens the box and distributes the valentines to each student.

The reason was I loved you best.
Good morning to you, valentine;
Curl your locks as I do mine-
Two before and three behind.
Good morning to you, valentine.
Round is the ring
that has no end,
So is my love for you,
I am like a cabbage
Divided into two;
The leaves I give to others
But the heart I give to you.
Sure as the grape
grows on the vine,
So sure you are
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you!
