Teacher. What do you know about Scotland?

P1. Scotland is a country in the north of Great Britain. It is a part of Great Britain. Its total area is 78,769 sq.km. Its population is 5.200.000 people. It is country of great variety with its own unique character and strong traditions.

P3. The white diagonal cross on a blue background is the cross of St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. A thistle is the national emblem of Scotland. A bagpipe is the national instrument of Scotland.

Teacher. Do you know why the thistle has become the national emblem of Scotland? There is a very interesting legend. Let`s read it.

“In very ancient times the Norsemen landed on the east of Scotland. They wanted to settle in the country. Scots waited for the enemy behind the river Tay, the largest river in Scotland. As they arrived late, they didn`t expect the enemy before the next day. The Norsemen were near. They crossed the Tay, intending to take Scots by surprise in their sleep. For this, they took off their shoes to make the least noise possible. But one of the Norsemen stepped on the thistle. He cried of sharp pain. The alarm was given. The Norsemen were put to flight. For this help the Scots made thistle their national emblem.”

P4. The kilt, the most important part of Scotland`s national dress, is made from tartan cloth. To make a kilt it takes eight meters of tartan cloth. Kilts are worn by men and women, but a man`s kilt has a pocket made from leather and silver. It`s worn in front and called a sporran.

P5. And of course everyone knows about the Lock Ness Monster. “Nessie” is said to be about six meters long, thin neck. Since 1934 thousands of people claimed to they had seen the monster. Scientists have investigated the lake and taken pictures but no scientific explanation of the mystery has been given.

P6. Edinburg is the capital of Scotland. It is a busy modern city which has a lot of places of interest: the Castle, Princes Street, Floral Clock, Holyrood Palace. The Castle was the home of Scotland`s royal family until the year 1603 when King James became king of England.

P8. Robert Burns is the world famous Scottish poet. Every year on the 25-th of January, Scottish people celebrate his birthday.

Teacher. Let`s listen to one of his beautiful poems “A red, red rose”.

P1. Oh, my love like a red, red rose

That`s newly spring in June:

O my love like a melody

That`s sweetly play`d in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonic lass

So deep in love am I:

A will love thee still, my dear,

Till a the seas gang dry

Till a the seas gang dry, my dear

And the rock melt wi` the sun

And I will love thee still, my dear

While the sands o`life shall run

And fare thee will, my only, love

And fare thee will a while!

And I will come again, my love

Tho` it were ten thousand mile.

P2. Любовь как роза, роза красная

Цветёт в моём саду

Любовь моя – как песенка

С которой я в путь иду.

Сильнее красоты твоей

Моя любовь одна

Она с тобой, пока моря

Не высохнут до дна

Не высохнут моря, мой друг,

Не рушится гранит,

Не остановится песок,

А он, как жизнь бежит…

Будь счастлива, моя любовь,

Прощай и не грусти

Вернусь к тебе, хоть целый свет

Пришлось бы мне пройти.
