Good morning, dear lyceum students. Glad to see you. I think you will try your best and succeed.

And we`ll work hard, watch the video, and have a conversation through the video about education in Great Britain. We will practice our vocabulary and grammar.

Your prizes will be your good marks.

Now on the screen you can see the motto of our lesson. The motto of our lesson is "The more we study, the more we know" (slide 3).

III. Check on Homework

Is everybody ready for the lesson? Well, so we`ll begin. What was your hometask for today? Yes, you are right. Your homeassigment was to solve the crossword puzzle on the topic "School subjects" (slides 6,7).Let`s check on your hometask! What does it mean? Can you spell it out? Well done! Now you can see answers on the screen (slide 8). Have you got any questions? I have. Did you like your hometask? What question was the most difficult for you? What was the easiest? (See the application 1).

IV. Warming up

Game.Sentence Star (slide 9 ).

We`ll continue our lesson with warming-up. We have a star with five words. Give a definition of each word. Make up sentences with these words. You can see the star on the blackboard and on the screen. What is a public school,…?What does to fail an exam mean?

a public school (in Britain)

a boarding school a state school

a truant to fail an exam

Key: (slide 10 )

a public school (in Britain) - a very expensive public school where you have to pay to attend ;

a boarding school - a school where the pupils live as well as study ;

a state school- a school paid by the government ;

a truant - a pupil who misses classes without a serious reason;

to fail an exam -to get a very bad mark at the exam.


The most expensive and prestigious private schools are actually called public schools.

There are many children who attend state schools in Great Britain.

There are also about 500 private schools in Great Britain. Most of these schools are boarding ones.

Don’t miss a school (military lyceum, English lessons),don’t be a truant!

Last academic year my friend failed English exam because he didn’t learn (study) it hard.

V. Vocabulary practice. Group work (slide 11 ).

Let`s go down to vocabulary practice. You can see the task on the screen. You have got 1 minute. You can (may) define the correct answers in your drafts. Match the following words with their definitions:

Key: 1-f,2-e,3-a,4-d,5-b,6-c (slide 12).

Who knows what the difference is between to take an exam and to pass an exam?You may explain it in Ukrainian.

To take an exam - здавати іспит.Значення слова:проходити іспит або тестування. Вживання:Ми використовуємо слово take an exam, коли нам треба буде здавати іспит або тест. Або коли ми вже написали їх, але не знаємо результату. Наприклад: he will take an exam next week.

To pass an exam - здати іспит.Значення слова: Отримати позитивний результат з іспиту або теста.Вживання:Ми використовуємо pass an exam, коли говоримо про успішну здачу іспиту. Тобто ми вже знаємо результат, і він позитивний. Наприклад: he is happy that he passed that exam.
