Сh: Good morning!
T: I am glad to see you. Sit down< please. The subject of our lesson is Australia? A very interesting, unusual and mysterious country.

T: thank you. But I think you will have a better chance of enjoying your trip round Australia if you are prepared for it, if you know something about the country you are going to visit. So, let’s begin our talk and have a look at the map.
T → P1 P2 P3
Where does Australia lie?
What is the area of the Commonwealth of Australia?
What about the relief of Australia, its mountains and rivers?
I want you to tell our tourist about the climate in Australia, the weather she might expect there and clothing she will need for her trip.
T: Now, I think, we should look back into the past of Australia. By the way, do you know how Australia got its name?
And what does the word "Australia” mean?
Would you like to know that?
Well, you have texts on your desks. No doubt, you will be able to answer these and some other questions if you read it. Use 5 minutes to do the task. Ask your neighbor for advice if it is necessary.
(Work in group)
T: Well, did you understand the text?
Then, let’s try to answer the questions.
What does the word "Australia” mean? Had Australia been called before or after it was discovered? How did the map makers mark the empty space in the south? Who were the first Europeans to visit the southern continent? How did the Dutch call it? Who discovered the east coast of Australia and how did he name it? Who called this continent Australia? (When?)
What else can you say about the history of Australia?
(The first settlers were convicts. … The country was born on January, 1, 1901)
Good of you.
T: So, Australia is one of the youngest countries in the world. Every country has its national flag, coat-of-arms, emblem and anthem. At home you had to prepare 3 true and false statements about Australian flag, coat-of0arms and emblem. Work in groups and choose the best ones to ask the pupils of the other group.
Listening to Australian anthem
T: As you know, the capital of Australia is Canberra and the other two main cities are Sydney and Melbourne. Each group prepared a presentation about one of the cities. Let’s see them.
Let’s go on to the next point of our lesson. Imagine that you are short-stay visitors to Australia and you have only two days. What are your suggestions about how to spend these two days? Work in groups and prepare a short conversation. You have 5 minutes to do the task. Ask for help if you need.

T: As we have told already Australia is a very unusual country. Our tourist saw many strange animals in Australia that are not found anywhere else in the world. She will describe you some of them so that you guess which animal he is talking about.
You know that when English people are travelling they send holiday cards to their relatives or friends. What would you write in a postcard from Australia?
Work in group.
Are you ready? Who will begin?
Our lesson comes to the final point and I want to ask you: What else do you think it is important to say about Australia? What image of Australia do you have?
(rich in mineral resources, highly developed industrial-agrarian country, sea sports)
That is absolutely right.
Is Australia interesting for you?
Would you like to go there someday?
In conclusion I would like to say that nowadays Australia lives a complex modern life in which love of the past co-exist side by side with a desire for change. Today’s Australia has a reputation for scientific innovations, for business commerce and trade. It plays an important role in the political life of the whole world.
I hope the lesson was interesting for you/. I also liked the way you worked. Thank you. Your home task will be to make a presentation "What image of Australia do I have”. Stand up. The lesson is over. Good bye.
