B2. Прочитайте тексты.

1. Her Majesty’s Government, in spite of its name, derives its authority and power from its party representation in Parliament. Parliament is housed in the Palace of Westminster, once a home of the monarchy. Like the monarchy, Parliament is an ancient institution, dating from the middle of the thirteenth century. Parliament is the seat of British democracy, but it is perhaps valuable to remember that while the House of Lords was created in order to provide a council of the nobility for the king, the Commons were summoned originally in order to provide the king with money.

2. The reigning monarch is not only head of state but symbol of the unity of the nation. The monarchy is Britain’s oldest secular institution, its continuity for over a thousand years broken only once by a republic that lasted a mere eleven years (1649-60). The monarchy is hereditary, the succession passing automatically to the oldest male child, or in the absence of males to the oldest female offspring of the monarch. In law the monarch is head of the executive and of the judiciary, head of the Church of England, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces.

3. The dynamic power of Parliament lies in its lower chamber. Of its 650 members, 523 represent constituencies in England, 38 in Wales, 72 in Scotland and 17 in Northern Ireland. There are only seats in the Commons debating chamber for 370 members, but except on matters of great interest, it is unusual for all members to be present at any one time. Many MPs find themselves in other rooms of the Commons, participating in a variety of committees and meetings necessary for an effective parliamentary process/

4. Britain is a democracy, yet its people are not, as one might expect in a democracy, constitutionally in control of the state. The constitutional situation is an apparently contradictory one. As a result of a historical process the people of Britain are subjects of the Crown, accepting the Queen as the head of the state. Yet even the Queen is not sovereign in any substantial sense since she receives her authority from Parliament, and is subject to its direction in almost all matters. This curious situation came about as a result of a long struggle for power between the Crown and Parliament during the sixteenth and the seventeenth centuries.

5. Her Majesty’s Government governs in the name of the Queen, and its hub, Downing Street, lies in Whitehall, a short walk from Parliament. Following a general election, the Queen invites the leader of the majority party represented in the Commons, to form a government on her behalf. Government ministers are invariably members of the House of Commons, but infrequently members of the House of Lords are appointed. All government members continue to represent “constituencies” which elected them/

6. Each parliamentary session begins with the “State Opening of Parliament”, a ceremonial occasion in which the Queen proceeds from Buckingham Palace to the Palace of Westminster where she delivers the Queen’s Speech from her throne in the House of Lords. Her speech is drafted by her government, and describes what the government intends to implement during the forthcoming session. Leading members of the Commons may hear the speech from the far end of the chamber, but are not allowed to enter the House of Lords.

7.  The upper chamber of Parliament is not democratic in any sense at all. It consists of four categories of peer. The majority are hereditary peers, a total of almost 800, but of whom only about half take an active interest in the affairs of the state. A smaller number, between 350 and 400, are “life” peers – an idea introduced in 1958 to elevate to the peerage certain people who rendered political or public service to the nation. The purpose was not only to honour but also to enhance the quality of business done in the Lords.

‘Second Stonehenge’ discovered near original

Archaeologists have discovered evidence of what they believe was a second Stonehenge located a little more than a mile away from the world-famous prehistoric monument.
The new find on the west bank of the river Avon has been called «Bluestonehenge», after the colour of the 25 Welsh stones of 1___________________.

Excavations at the site have suggested there was once a stone circle 10 metres in diameter and surrounded by a henge – a ditch with an external bank, according to the project director, Professor Mike Parker Pearson, of the University of Sheffield.

The stones at the site were removed thousands of years ago but the sizes of the holes in 2  _________________ indicate that this was a circle of bluestones, brought from the Preseli mountains of Wales, 150 miles away.

The standing stones marked the end of the avenue 3  __________________, a 1¾-mile long processional route constructed at the end of the Stone Age. The outer henge around the stones was built about 2400BC but arrowheads found in the stone circle indicate the stones were put up as much as 500 years earlier.

Parker Pearson said his team was waiting for results of radiocarbon dating
4 __________________  whether stones currently in the inner circle of Stonehenge were originally located at the other riverside construction.

Pearson said: «The big, big question is when these stones were erected and when they were removed – and when we get the dating evidence we can answer both those questions.».

He added: «We speculated in the past 5 ____________________ at the end of the avenue near the river. But we were completely unprepared to discover that there was an entire stone circle. Another team member, Professor Julian Thomas, said the discovery indicated 6  _________________ was central to the religious lives of the people who built Stonehenge. «Old theories about Stonehenge that do not explain the evident significance of the river will have to be rethought,» he said. Dr Josh Pollard, project co-director from the University of Bristol, described the discovery as «incredible».

Getting What He Deserved?

There were seven or eight of us in the line, waiting to pay the cashier for our lunches. We were all in a hurry because that’s the way of the American business-day lunch. At the front of the line there was a pretty woman with a small boy of about eight. He was a cute little fellow wearing black jeans, white sneakers and a blue pullover sweater. A shock of dark hair fell over his eyes. He looked very much like his mother. The boy had a charming face with chiseled features but he was depressed.

As the woman fumbled in her purse, looking for money to pay her check, the kid noticed a display of candy bars beside the cash register and immediately wanted one.

“You can’t have any candy”, said his mother. “You had pie with your lunch”. She took out her handkerchief, then put it back and went on fumbling in her purse.

“But I want some candy”, said the kid. His tone was surprisingly insistent. Almost aggressive.

The mother continued her search for money in her purse, and the kid continued to whine about the candy. Then he began to stamp his feet and shout.

           The rest of us in line were beginning to get fidgety. We bunched a little closer together and several folks began mumbling under their breath. “Ought to snatch him bald”, said one man quietly.

The kid by now was reaching for the candy display in open opposition to his mother. She grabbed his arm and pulled it away, but not before he clutched a Snickers bar in his hand.

“Put it back”, she said.

“No!” shouted the child. It was an arrogant “No!”.

The line bunched even more closely together, and the man who had suggested snatching the kid bald appeared ready to do so himself. So much for the kid’s shock of dark hair, I thought.

But the mother moved suddenly and with purpose. She paid the cashier, took back her change and dropped it into her purse. Then with one quick motion, she grabbed hold of the child’s pullover sweater and lifted him off the floor. The moment his sneakers came back to earth, she turned his back toward her and began flailing him. A look of disbelief came across the kid’s face. His eyes filled with tears. He tried to break away but that made his mother flail him again.

When she had finished administering the punishment, she turned the child around and pointed a finger squarely in his sobbing face. With a voice strong and certain, she said, “The next time I tell you do something, young man, will you do it?”

The child looked at the floor. Meekly and sincerely, he replied, “Yes, ma’am.”

The mother turned to go. The child returned the Snickers bar without further hesitation and marched dutifully out behind her.

The people in a line broke into spontaneous applause.

“Did the kid deserve the punishment he had? What would I do if I were his mother? She may have been absolutely right for all I know. I have no children. I have no right to argue with the mother” I thought. “There is nothing I can do but wait. Perhaps the best way to get an idea of normal behavior of children is to get married and raise a few”.

А18. The boy was persistent in getting what he wanted and the people in the line

1) supported him.

2) started to show irritation.

3) started to shout at the kid.

4) remained indifferent to the incident.

1) it did not teach him anything.

2) he wasn’t used to being spanked.

3) he was indifferent to being spanked.

4) he wasn’t ready to change his behavior.

4) manipulated his mother skillfully.

    3 слайд

    Apollo and Cassandra In ancient Greece there were many temples built for Apollo. He was the god of youth, beauty, music and poetry. Besides, Apollo had one very special skill — he could see the future. The Temple in Troy was one of the _GREAT_ of all Apollo’s Temples. One day, having nothing better to do, Apollo came to the temple in Troy. Among other _WOMAN_ he saw Cassandra, a young and beautiful priestess, who worked at the temple. Apollo _IMPRESS_ by her grace. The minute Apollo saw Cassandra, he _FALL_ in love. It was love at first sight. Apollo offered her a deal. He would give Cassandra the gift of being able to see the future, if she gave him a kiss. Cassandra agreed. With a laugh, Apollo gave her the gift, _DREAM_ about the reward. Instantly, Cassandra could see the future. She saw Apollo, in the future, helping the Greeks destroy Troy. When Apollo bent his head to gently kiss her, she angrily spat in his face.  Apollo got very angry. He _NOT/CAN_ take away his gift, but he was able to add to it. So, whatever Cassandra said, no one would believe her. That was his second gift. When Cassandra begged her people in Troy to watch out for the Trojan horse, they _NOT BELIEVE_ her. And that was the end of Troy.

    Minotaur The legends of ancient Greece tell us about the half man-half bull called the Minotaur. People were afraid of this strange and terrible beast _LIVE_ in a deep, dark Labyrinth on the island of Crete. The Labyrinth _ DESIGN _ by the cunning and ingenious mind of Daedalus. Daedalus was a brilliant architect and inventor – in fact, he was so brilliant that King Minos of Crete _ NOT WANT _ to let him go back to his home in Athens. Instead, he _KEEP_ him as a prisoner. Daedalus lived with his son Icarus in a tower of the palace, and King Minos made him invent weapons of war that would make his army and navy even _POWERFUL_ than they already were. Although Daedalus and Icarus had every comfort that they _CAN_ ask for, the father longed to return home to Athens. Icarus hardly remembered his city, but he too wanted to leave, because he longed to run and play in the open, rather than be in a tower all day. Daedalus looked out over the waves of the sea, and he realised that even if they managed to slip out of the tower and find a little boat, they would not be able to sail far. One of King Minos’s _SEAMAN_ would spot and catch them very soon.

    A phone call Among the e-mails waiting for me at work one morning was one from a member of my staff. It was sent from his personal e-mail address and there was only his home phone number. Thinking something was wrong, I immediately called _HE_. A sleepy female voice answered and told me he was at work and _COME_ home late in the evening. The _BAD_ moment was when I remembered that I had recently asked staff members to give me their home numbers. I went right down to the employee’s office to apologize for my call. _LATE_, however, he thanked me. I had awakened his daughter, who had an exam that morning but had forgotten to set her alarm. Thanks to my call, she hadn’t missed the exam.

    Honesty is the best policy To learn more about her students, my younger brother’s teacher sent home a lengthy questionnaire at the beginning of the school year. She asked _THEY_ about their likes and dislikes and about many other things. She asked what they _THINK_  about their school in twenty years time. Some of the questions were so difficult that  I _NOT CAN_ answer them offhand though I was 6 years his senior.  The _BAD_ question, in my opinion, was the one relating to their self-image: «When you look in a mirror, what do you see?» But my ten-year-old brother had no trouble with his answer: «Myself, and everything behind me.»

    Excuses, excuses … For years my husband, Tom, and I had complained bitterly about the lack of sidewalks in our village. We didn’t have enough exercise but we _NOT CAN_ jog because there were no sidewalks. Tom had often told _I_, «If only we had sidewalks, we would jog or walk daily and become models of fitness». So we were thrilled when a community sidewalk project was announced, and watched eagerly as paving neared completion. Then the _BAD_ thing happened: wishful thinking and reality collided.  «Well, dear,» Tom said. «What’ll we use as an excuse for not walking now?»  I said I _THINK_  of some excuse.

We didn’t have enough exercise but we _COULD NOT_ jog because there were no sidewalks. Tom had often told _ME_, «If only we had sidewalks, we would jog or walk daily and become models of fitness». So we were thrilled when a community sidewalk project was announced, and watched eagerly as paving neared completion. Then the _WORST_ thing happened: wishful thinking and reality collided.  «Well, dear,» Tom said. «What’ll we use as an excuse for not walking now?»  I said I _WOULD THINK_  of some excuse.

    As old as a brontosaurus As we walked around the Prehistoric Park in Calgary, I had my six-year-old son, Jordie, pose for a picture with a brontosaurus in the background. After I took the photo, I _NOT CAN_ help crying. «What’s wrong, Mom?» Jordie asked. I explained that when I was his age, my parents had taken my picture standing in exactly the same spot, and I was feeling rather nostalgic. I added that perhaps one day he _TAKE_ his son’s picture here. Puzzled, he looked several times from the brontosaurus to _I_ . And then came the _BAD_ moment of my life. My son said, «But …when you were a girl … it was alive then, right?»

That was the _BAD_ moment …  I discovered that I was sitting outside a store selling garden furniture.

Прочитайте текст «Настоящий волшебник» и скажите, почему
Рози и молодой человек ушли от короля и королевы.
 
Настоящий волшебник
Давным-давно жили король и королева. У них была красивая дочь по
имени Рози. Король и королева жили в чудесном дворце на главной
площади города.
Недалеко от дворца стояла высокая квадратная башня, в которой были комнаты Рози. Эта башня находилась недалеко от моста. Широкая
дорога проходила от башни ко дворцу. Рози часто ходила в башню.
Она открывала золотым ключиком маленькую дверь в задней части
башни и входила туда. Она любила проводить там вечера. Там, в
темном зале в углу все время горел камин, а над камином висел
большой колокол. Мебели там было мало. Рози никогда не боялась
приходить в этот зал и слушать звон колокола.
Но королеве не нравилось это, и она всегда называла башню старой и
грязной. Королеве не нравился камин, колокол, висящий в зале, но
она ничего не могла поделать. Рози проводила там много времени в
тишине.
Когда Рози исполнилось 18 лет, то пришла пора выходить замуж и заводить семью. У Рози были золотистые волосы и зеленые, как море глаза, и она была самой красивой девушкой в стране. «Мы никогда не видели такой красивой девушки. Она цветет как роза», — говорили люди.
Королева знала, что взять в жены ее дочь было непросто. Королевская дочь должна была выйти замуж только за волшебника. Это было
правилом. «Это самое ужасное из того, что мне приходилось слышать», — говорила Рози.
Однажды вечером, находясь в башне, Рози посмотрела в зеркало и
увидела в нем молодое красивое лицо. Это было лицо юноши. «Я никогда его не встречала», — подумала Рози — «но мне кажется, что я его
знаю».
В последний день последнего месяца года много волшебников собралось во дворце. Они хотели жениться на Рози, но Рози никто из них
не понравился.
Вдруг входит юноша, Рози смотрит на него и не верит своим глазам.
Это был юноша, которого она видела в зеркале. Когда их взгляды
встретились, Рози поняла, что она любит юношу, и ее сердце принадлежало ему.
Посмотрев на юношу, королева сказала: «Ты не волшебник, не так ли?»
«Нет, не волшебник. Но я люблю вашу дочь. Дайте мне сказать о
своей любви». Когда он говорил, люди во дворце видели цветы и
звезды, они слышали сладкую музыку.
Рози встала со своего трона. «Это мой будущий муж», — сказала она.
«Нет», — сказала королева. «Иди в башню и сиди там», — приказала
королева. «А ты уходи!» — приказала она юноше.
Рози и юноша покинули дворец. Но Рози не пошла в башню. Она
пошла на мост, где она встретилась с юношей, и они вдвоем покинули страну, дворец и башню. Они пошли по своей дороге к счастью.
Rosie was in love. She understood that there would be no happiness for her
in the palace, because the king and the queen didn’t understand that all she
needs is love. The young man understood that he could make Rosie happy.
 

B11

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. Its numerous high-rise buildings, heavy traffic congestion, intense heat and naughty nightlife may not immediately give you the best impression.

 BUILD

B12

Don’t let that mislead you.

 LEAD

B13

It is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities with impressive temples and palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife that has something for everyone.

 IMPRESS

B14

The heart of Bangkok is probably its magnificent Grand Palace, which is one of the architectural wonders of the world.

 PROBABLE

B15

It is a collection of highly decorated holy temples and monuments.

 COLLECT

B16

Its asymmetry and eclectic styles are due to its organic development, with additions and rebuilding being made by successive reigning kings over 200 years of history. It is worth spending at least a full morning or afternoon there. At night the palace is lit up and glows in vivid colour.

 DEVELOP
