FRIENDS

Цілі: вдосконалювати навички читання й усного мовлення; розвивати мовну здогадку й мовленнєву реакцію учнів; виховувати зацікавленість у розширенні своїх знань.

Procedure

1. Warm-up

1) Are there any famous stories of friendship in your culture?

2) Can you describe one of your closest friends?

3) Do you have any childhood friendships that are still strong today? Tell us about them.

4) Do you have any long distance friends?

5) How do you keep in touch with your long-distance friends?

6) How often do you see your long-distance friends?

2. Reading

Read this letter from Milena to her pen-pal, Elena. There are six par­agraphs. Match each paragraph to a subject by writing the correct letter (A-F) for what it talks about.

Dear Elena,

1) Thank you for the letter you sent me last week. I’m very happy to hear that you and Francesco are well and that your exam results were so good. Well done! I know you studied hard and you deserve your success.

2) Mine are next week so at the moment I’m studying a lot. I’m really nervous about them because, if you remember, I was ill for a couple of months at the end of the year and so I missed a lot of lessons. When they finish I would like to come and visit you for a few days, if that’s OK with your mom and dad.

3) Do you remember I told you about my friend Amanda from Scotland? She’s going to come here next month and is going to stay for two weeks. I’d like you to come too so you can meet her and we can all go out to­gether. What do you think? We can practice our English!

4) I remember last year we had such a good time. The beaches near your house are wonderful and I really enjoyed meeting your friends (espe­cially Roberto! Is he still single?) I can’t remember the name of the dis­co next to the train station but I’d like to go there again – it was fun.

5) Oh, guess what! Jason broke his arm last weekend! He went to the skate­board park with his friends from school and fell down some steps (he doesn’t know how to skateboard!) He’s got a plaster cast and he’s going to have it for at least six weeks. He’s such an idiot!

6)


My mom’s calling me for lunch so I’ll finish this letter now. Say hello to your family and don’t forget to congratulate Francesco for me.

Lots of love

Milena xx

3. Speaking

Think out and discuss the following items:

1) What is a friend?

2) What qualities do you think are important in a friend?

3) What qualities do you appreciate in your friends? What makes some­one special or best friend?

4) Are you good friends with your family members?

4. Reading

Read the text and do the task below.

Everyone knows Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but not many people know about Parents’ Day. This started in July 1994. President Bill Clinton signed a law that made the fourth Sunday of July a day we can celebrate both of our parents. The law says Parents’ Day is for “recognizing, uplift­ing, and supporting the role of parents in the rearing of children”. The day came about because of campaigning by religious leaders. They decided it was important to have a day to promote responsible parenting. Parents must also celebrate their children on this day. One important theme is to strengthen the idea of the traditional, two-parent family. Campaigners say the increase in one-parent families is leading to a rise in social problems.

Parenthood is the most important responsibility any of us can have. The parent-child relationship is the most powerful human bond. Becoming and be­ing a parent brings countless joys and happiness. It becomes the responsibility of every parent to uphold their duty of raising their God-given gift with love, care and support. Being a parent can be an almost life-long endeavour. One of the most popular activities in many communities is to honor “Parents of the Year”. It is an almost impossible decision to make because there are so many truly wonderful parents. Make sure that on this Parent’s Day, your parents and children know exactly how special and important they are.

Put the lines in the correct order according to the text.
