Keeping pets (introduction)
     Nowadays keeping pets has become  a popular hobby and activity really. Different people get different animals at home. Generally, people keep cats, dogs, fish, parrots, hamsters as pets.  Some people like mice and mini-pigs, white rats and polecats, they keep their favourites in small cages, feed and clean them regularly. There are people who enjoy keeping exotic creatures, like crocodiles, lizards, tigers, snakes. You see, tastes differ.
 But I believe, exotic animals are rather dangerous, especially when they live in houses. They are wild and strong, with sharp teeth and strong paws. Wild creatures like freedom, they seldom make friend with humans. Besides, they need natural surroundings to feel safe and comfortable.
  In the country people keep domestic animals on the farm, such as: cows and  horses, pigs and hens, turkeys and  ducks. It’s not easy to take care of them. The animals need food and clear water, fresh air and comfortable shelters.

September 13   CARD 15- point 3

Here’s a model how to speak about
weather forecast  and  its importance for people of different professions
I believe, the job of a weatherman is really important and necessary nowadays. A lot of people depend on the weather  and want to know what it will soon be. For example, farmers grow plants and crops and can lose their harvest because of  rain or frost.  Pilots drive planes, and it can be dangerous in nasty weather. Sailors go to the sea and can get into trouble when the wind rises. Geologists explore the world and can get wet through when they are caught in a rainstorm without coats. Travellers visit distant lands and need the correct clothes for different weather.
     So, you see, we all depend on the weather and need forecasts daily. There are people who are collecting information from ships, planes, weather stations and space stations all day and night. They are weathermen, they forecast the weather and tell us the temperature with the help of this information. When the barometer shows high pressure, the day will be calm. When it shows low pressure, we look out for rain or a strong wind.

Sometimes the weather forecast is not right because the weather is rather changeable and it is difficult to predict it correctly.

Canada and Russia compared
1. They say, it's a small world, and I agree. If you look at the world's  map, you'll surely see a lot  countries, which are quite different and unique in their own ways.
In fact, Canada is a far-away country, it is situated in the Western Hemisphere, while Russia occupies a vast territory in the Eastern Hemisphere. Still, these countries have much in common…..
2. Canada is the world's second largest country after Russia, it is really wide and has got six time zones, just like Russia…..
Both Russia and Canada have a moderate climate, when in the north winters are long and frosty, and summers are cool and often rainy. Winds bring a lot of rain from the oceans….
Russia is washed by seas and oceans, so is Canada, which borders on the Arctic Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Hudson Bay….
3. Three quarters of Canada's population .....metropolitan ....dual cultural ....
In this country, people inhabit industrial areas, too. There are also provinces and territories with their own capital cities…..
Both capitals, Moscow and Ottawa are the largest cities of the country.
4. I daresay,  both countries possess a lot of natural wonders. Like Russia, Canada is rich in....(resources). The country gives home to... (animals) and ….also.....
5. Still, Canada and Russia are two different lands. Russia is a federal republic, the head of the state is President, whose power is limited by the State Duma and whose helpers are the Council of Ministers; while  Canada represented by...    the main parties......
6. So, you see, on the one hand, countries really differ. On the other hand, they have much in common. Though Russia is a multinational country, the official language is Russian, while people in Canada speak...

Both countries possess a rich history, bright traditions and pecularities.
14 February 2016  A topic sample (shared by my colleague
Should School Uniforms Be Abolished?  
   Is it a good idea for students not to wear a uniform? While abolishing school uniforms allows for freedom of expression and individuality , I believe that uniforms are very important in a number of ways.
   Firstly,  school uniforms make it easy for students to dress every morning. Teenagers do not have to spend countless hours searching for something to wear.  
    Moreover, even though uniforms are initially quite expensive, they save parents lots of money in the long run because they do not have to buy their children the latest trends. In addition to this, wearing the same clothes make children from different economic backgrounds feel equal.  
    On the other hand, many students argue that a uniform prevents them from expressing themselves and revealing their personality through clothing. Also, some children state that they do not feel comfortable in uniforms. For instance, they dislike the look or the cut.Despite this,  many still find ways of adjusting their uniforms to their liking, by rolling up their sleeves or flipping up their collars for example.
    In conclusion, I strongly believe that uniforms are important for displaying unity and give children a sense of loyalty to their school. School uniforms do not hurt students' individuality or need for self-expression. Many schools have a choice of uniforms, so teenagers can express themselves in a small way. For me, school uniforms play a valuable part  in school life as they help build school spirit and introduce a feeling of belonging.

Что такое парад планет?

Парадом планет называется образование мнимой прямой линии, соединяющей планеты друг с другом. Проще говоря, это явление означает выстраивание планет в ряд одна за одной. Всего планет 9, однако в этот раз 31 января в рад выстроится лишь 5 из них — это Меркурий, Венера, Марс, Юпитер и Сатурн. В некоторых регионах, где видимость ночного неба высока, парад будет виден отчасти даже невооруженным глазом.
В большинстве случаев для самого лучшего наблюдения Марса, Юпитера и Сатурна понадобится телескоп. 5 планет — это немного, однако даже такой парад планет происходит примерно раз в 10 — 12 лет. Полного же парада планет человечество пока так и не застало, хотя майя предсказывали его в 2012 году.

Парад планет — это очень красиво и зрелищно. Моделирование движения планет показало, что ближайший полный парад планет будет не раньше 150 лет.

Астрологи советуют воспринимать этот день как обычный и ничем не примечательный, но с небольшой возможностью того, что настроение будет постоянно меняться.

Here's the Basic story "Choosing a carrer"
Choosing a profession is not an easy matter.  Finishing school is the beginning of an independent life. Many roads are open before us.
Centuries ago there were only a few jobs: people were farmers, bakers, butchers or carpenters. Today there are thousands of different kinds of jobs, and new ones are constantly appearing. No wonder that it is not an easy thing to make the right choice.
When choosing a future career, we should consider different factors. First of all it’s good when you get satisfaction from your job. It is very important to choose a profession that suits your interests. In my opinion, a job should be interesting and socially important. Some jobs are more suitable for men and others for women. For example, the professions of secretary or nurse are more suitable for women. The professions of lifeguard or  pilot are the jobs for men.
I think money is one of the most important factors when you make a choice. There are highly paid jobs and low-paid jobs. For example, a businessman, a president or a film star are highly paid jobs. A worker, a doctor or an engineer are low-paid jobs. I think everybody wants to earn as much money as possible. 
To make the right choice, you should take into account your traits of character. It goes without saying that to become a good doctor you must be patient and kind. Teacher’s work requires love for children, profound knowledge of subjects, and the ability to explain.
There are so many people who influence us in choosing our occupation. Parents and friends play a very important role in our choices. My father thinks that I must choose my future profession according to my taste. I am good at Maths and I think I’m rather communicative. May be after finishing school I will enter the university and study marketing or management. Managing is a very interesting but difficult job.
I haven’t decided yet what to study. But I still have time to think and to choose.

One more sample, read it:

Choosing a profession is not an easy matter.  Finishing school is the beginning of an independent life. Many roads are open before us.
Centuries ago there were only a few jobs: people were farmers, bakers, butchers or carpenters. Today there are thousands of different kinds of jobs. That is why we can choose any job which interests us. We should learn if it is attractive or not attractive, prestigious or not respected, exciting or monotonous. We should also know what this job can require from us: accuracy or courage, good imagination or special training, night shifts or working from home.
Choosing a future career, we consider different factors. In my opinion, a job should be interesting and socially important. Some jobs are more suitable for men and others for women.
I think money is one of the most important factors when you make a choice.  
You should also take into account your traits of character. To become a good doctor you must be patient and kind. Doctors save the lives of people. Mistakes are impossible in this profession. Teacher’s work requires love for children, excellent knowledge of subjects, and the ability to explain. The profession of designer needs a good imagination and creativity.
There are so many people who influence us in choosing our occupation. Parents and friends play a very important role in our choice.
Perhaps the best way to prepare for any job is to get a good education. I haven’t decided yet what to study. But I still have time to think and to choose.

Alan Alexander Milne 1882-1956

I often wish I were a King,
And then I could do anything.

If only I were King of Spain,
I'd take my hat off in the rain.

If only I were King of France,
I wouldn't brush my hair for aunts.

I think, if I were King of Greece,
I'd push things off the mantelpiece. If I were King of Norroway,
I'd ask an elephant to stay.

If I were King of Babylon,
I'd leave my button gloves undone.

If I were King of Timbuctoo,
I'd think of lovely things to do.

If I were King of anything,

I'd tell the soldiers, "I'm the King!"

Here is a sample of home composition “ The characters of A.A.Milne’s books”:

A book by Alexander Milne is full of curious creatures. Some of them are caring, reliable and cheerful. Others are strict, gloomy and nasty. Still others are  dangerous and wild. Still, they all are attractive and possess their own personal characteristics. I’d like to describe one of them, the prettiest and the funniest of them all. Judging by his appearance, he is a small treasure. His figure is rather short and fluffy. He looks slim and bouncy, but, in fact, he is as quiet as a mouse and as delicate as a flower. His eyes are the index of his small sensitive soul. He’s got an intellectual look, though he is not a human being, but an amazing animal. He is rather reasonable sometimes and very helpful to his friends in many cases. He is always ready to give them a helping hand and good advice. His mouth and nose are small, and there are dimples on his funny cheeks. On the whole he looks pleasant and funny.
Moreover, he considers himself to be the smallest and the weakest creature in the world. He is really afraid of many things that are bigger than he. But he is everybody’s favourite and friend because of his tiny kind and devoted heart and a happy optimistic look, he never loses his temper, never.
I believe, his appearance is the mirror of his caring, cheerful, sensitive character.

Frankly speaking, he is as curious as a cat, but I love him so much. This is  my charming Piglet, Winnie’s best friend and companion.

The importance of school learning

22nd April 2014
Here is the story for home reading (to Monday, 28.04.2014)

1. Coal is the main mineral resource of Kuzbass. Kuzbass comprises the territory of the Kuznetsk black coal basin and the western part of the Kansk-Achinsk brown coal basin.
2. Kuzbass is one of the largest coal basins in Russia and the main, if not the only, supplier of process raw material to the Russian industries. The  reserves of black coal in Kuzbass exceed the total world's reserves of oil and natural gas by more than 7 times (when converted into equivalent coal) and reach almost 700 billion tons; over 200 billion tons of which account for coking coals.
 Today, the reserves of coking coals in Kuzbass account for 73% of the total reserves of these types of coal in the developed coal basins of Russia, and over 80% of Russia's coking coals are mined in Kuzbass.
Kuzbass coals are of unique quality. They come in almost all process grades and groups from brown coals to anthracites. Coal is the main, but not the only mineral resource in Kuznetsk land. Its interior contains all the elements of Mendeleyev's Periodic Table.
3. Kemerovo Oblast is also rich in other fuel resources, such as peat (over 20 fields), some oil and natural gas.
The southern part of Gornaya Shoria has enormous iron ore deposits. Most of them are located on the banks of the Kondoma River.
There are some iron ore deposits closer to Novokuznetsk, in the Telbess area, as well as in the centre and in the north of Kuzbass. The explored ore reserves are estimated to reach billions of tons.
Manganese is needed for smelting high-quality metal. One of the largest manganese ore deposits in Russia is not far from Mezhdurechensk, its reserves reaches about 200 million tons.
4. The Salair mountain-ridge is a storehouse of complex ore containing zinc, lead, silver and gold. Placers and veins of this noble metal can be found almost anywhere in Kuzbass.
Many places in our region are rich in non-metallic resources (about 150 deposits, 50 of which are in operation), for example, phosphorites and apotites. They are mined in Gornaya Shoria and on the flanks of the Kuznetsk Alatau.
Limestone, which is used in cement production, is mined in Yashkino and Topky raions.
5. In addition to the mineral resources mentioned above, our region is rich in semi-precious stones, such as amethyst, jasper, agate, cornelian and others stones used in jewellery manufacture.
The mineral resources of Kuzbass are unique in terms of their variety, quantity, and quality. In this respect, the region can only be compared to the Urals.
Learn the new words:
Coal basin – угольный бассейн
Coking coal – коксующийся уголь
Anthracites – aнтрациты
Interior – недра
Iron ore deposits – запасы железной руды
Manganese – марганец
Mountain-ridge – горная гряда
Lead – свинец
Vein – жила
Flank (of a hill) – cклон (холма)
Limestone – известняк
Jasper – яшма
Cornelian – сердолик
Jewellery – драгоценности
Task 1 Match the paragraph and the title (one title is extra):
a)      Mineral resources in Kuznetsk land.
b)      The main resource of Kuzbass.
c)      The Kuznetsk coal basin.
d)     A storehouse of complex ore.
e)      The reserves of coal in Kuzbass.
f)       Jewellery manufacture.
            Task 2 Agree (T) or disagree (F):
  1. Brown coal is the main mineral resource in Kuzbass.
  2. Kuzbass is one of the largest coal basins in Russia.
  3. Kuzbass coals are unique.
  4. Kemerovo region has many fuel resources.

11 April 2014 an eco leaflet "Going Green' (a sample)

We'll be planting trees near the school  building, we''ll be cleaning the river bank, looking after and feeding the homeless, hungry, poor pets in the streets.
We'll be saving energy and turn off the light at home. 
We won't be throwing  litter in the streets. we won't be chewing gum all day long!
Let's demonstrate our respect and support to ecology.
Be one of us!

3d April 2014  Употребление future continuous   В основном, future continuous  применяется в том случае, когда мы говорим о действии, котороеначнется в будущем в определенный момент времени и будет продолжаться какое-то время. В отличие от future simple, future continuous делает акцент на длительности действия. Поэтому оно и называется на русском - будущее длительное время. Довольно часто вместе с future continuous употребляются слова, обозначающие конкретное время: at noon, at 7 o'clock, at that moment и т.п. Приведем несколько поясняющих примеров:

    • This time next week I'll be on holiday. I'll be lying on the beach or swimming in the sea. - На следующей неделе в это время я буду в отпуске. Я буду лежать на пляже или плавать в море.
    • Don't phone between 4 and 5. We'll be eating. - Не звони между четыремя и пятью. Мы будем есть.
    • I’ll be waiting for you at 8 o’clock tomorrow. - Я буду ждать тебя в 8 часов завтра.
    • At 5 o'clock tomorrow, he will be in his office. He will be working. - Завтра в 5 часов он будет у себя в офисе. Он будет работать.
  • Мы можем ограничить момент времени другим будущим действием, при помощи использования таких слов, как например when, while, before и т.д.
    • When I come, they will be playing. - Когда я приду, они будут играть.
    • While he's reading the book, I'll be watching TV. - Пока он будет читать книгу, я буду смотреть телевизор.

Here are the videos to support our classes in the USA country- study

5, March 2014
Study the basic story on ecology “Ecological Problems” and get prepared to discuss the main items:

1.      What is the root of human disharmony with nature?
2.      What is  the evidence of human interference into  nature?
3.      What measures can help Humanity to save the planet from ecological catastrophe?

     Since ancient times Nature has served Man, being the source of his life. For thousands of years people lived in harmony with environment and it seemed to them that natural riches were unlimited. But with the development of civilization man's interference in nature began to increase.
     Large cities with thousands of smoky industrial enterprises appear all over the world today. The by-products of their activity pollute the air we breathe, the water we drink, the land we grow grain and vegetables on.
     Every year world industry pollutes the atmosphere with about 1000 million tons of dust and other harmful substances. Many cities suffer from smog. Vast forests are cut and burn in fire. Their disappearance upsets the oxygen balance. As a result some rare species of animals, birds, fish and plants disappear forever, a number of rivers and lakes dry up.
 The pollution of air and the world's ocean, destruction of the ozone layer is the result of man's careless interaction with nature, a sign of the ecological crises.
    Environmental protection is of a universal concern. That is why serious measures to create a system of ecological security should be taken. Some progress has been already made in this direction. As many as 159 countries - members of the UNO - have set up environmental protection agencies. Numerous conferences have been held by these agencies to discuss problems facing ecologically poor regions including the Aral Sea, the South Urals, Kuzbass, Donbass, Semipalatinsk and Chernobyl. An international environmental research centre has been set up on Lake Baikal. The international organization Greenpeace is also doing much to preserve the environment.

     But these are only the initial steps and they must be carried onward to protect nature, to save life on the planet not only for the sake of the present but also for the future generations.

Watch the presentation and read the basic story SPORTS IN KUZBASS

hello, everybody, 
I'd like to greet you on very short holidays with some positive phrases and optimistic sentences. here is one for the beginning: a nice quotation for you, my true English learners: 

Winnie-the-Pooh A fictional bear (created by A. A. Milne), who appeared first in the London Evening News (1925) and then in the book Winnie-the-Pooh (1926)
Long quote:
"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like 'What about lunch?'"

dear friends, 
we are going to keep St.Valentine's Day in school.
just join us and learn the lyrics- do you know why? 
it's top secret, between me, you and the post lamp

Lyrics to Do-re-mi :

Doe, a deer, a female deer.
Ray, a drop of golden sun.
Me, a name I call myself.
Far, a long, long way to run.
Sew, a needle pulling thread,
La, a note to follow sew,
Tea, a drink with jam and bread!
That will bring us back to do oh-oh-oh!


Oh, where have you been,

Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Oh, where have you been,

Charming Billy?

I have been to seek a wife,

She's the joy of my life,

She's a young thing

And cannot leave her mother.

Did she ask you to come in,

Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Did she ask you to come in,

Charming Billy?

Yes, she asked me to come in,

There's a dimple in her chin.

She's a young thing

And cannot leave her mother.

Can she make a cherry pie,

Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Can she make a cherry pie,

Charming Billy?

She can make a cherry pie,

Quick as a cat can wink an eye,

She's a young thing

And cannot leave her mother.

How old is she,

Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

How old is she,

Charming Billy?

Three times six and four times seven,

Twenty-eight and eleven,

She's a young thing

And cannot leave her mother

My Bonnie lies over the ocean

My Bonnie lies over the sea

My Bonnie lies over the ocean

Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me


Bring back, bring back

Bring back my Bonnie to me, to me

Bring back, bring back

Bring back my Bonnie to me

Last night as I lay on my pillow

Last night as I lay on my bed

Last night as I lay on my pillow

I dreamt that my Bonnie was dead


Oh blow the winds o'er the ocean

And blow the winds o'er the sea

Oh blow the winds o'er the ocean

And bring back my Bonnie to me


The winds have blown over the ocean

The winds have blown over the sea

The winds have blown over the ocean

And brought back my Bonnie to me

        Dear friends,
Here are the two promised episodes about the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Watch the maps first, to understand the stories better


My dear pupils, those who are ill these days and stay home without our academic classes, I am really sorry- but  there are two new presentations for you to watch and keep up with the group- they contain the new grammar pattern (used to) and the  lexics of the day.
Get well soon!                                             


Here are the videos to Thanksgiving Day, which is coming (See the Curiosity Shop page). Make sure you'll not miss the joys of the day and can value its true meaning.



Dear friends,
watch a new rubric in the right corner of the main page- PICS AND PRESENTATIONS.
Here is a presentation on Present Perfect and Past Simple Compared.
if you've missed something in class, you just watch the presentation and catch up with the group.
Best of luck and follow me!

Dear  friends, 
Now I'm here to help you with traditional greetings.
 Sometimes it's nice to say "How are You? HI, How are you going on?" instead of trivial "Morning".
 So, watch this video and enlarge your active vocabulary.
Best of luck, Ur English teacher

Hello again!
Is grammar really as difficult as you tell me? Let's take FUTURE SIMPLE, for instance. We've learned three ways of expressing your plans (be going to+ verb), future facts(will, shall+ verb) and Present Progressive (be+ verb+ing). That's what we've learned in class, and 
here are some episodes to master Ur English with  the FUTURE Tense
Break your leg!

14/10/2012                                                                  Dear friends,

We go on learning English grammar through singing and watching.
This time it’s a folk song “Billy Boy”, performed slowly and a bit childlishly. But it’s even better, as you can catch up with the rhythm and the lyrics at a time. I underline the grammar forms, try not to miss the notes. So, sing along and enjoy Present Perfect and Past Simple (both interrogative and affirmative)
Where have you been? - Present Perfect interrogative
I have  been to seek a wife- Present Perfect affirmative
She has- Present simple (=she has got)
Did she ask you  to come in, Billy Boy? (Past Simple interrogative)
Yes, she bade me to come in -Past Simple
- (bid-bade-bidden= просить)-
She can , Can she? (Present Simple)


Dear friends,
now when we are in the process of learning grammar tenses, these video episodes can be rather helpful- you will learn  irregular verbs through reading, listening and even dancing!  ( the www sites are mentioned in each episode)  
Just watch and learn!

The last episode on this page is a story in two contrasting patterns- Past Simple and Present Perfect. Try to understand what is what there.

5* This page is for my secondary school pupils, just to help them master and brush up their English in  extra-curriculum activities.
Today it's reference to the Irish song " Molly Mallone" - sing it  along with U-tube video
 Мо́лли Мало́ун (англ. Molly Malone, также известная как Cockles and Mussels, «Моллюски и мидии», и In Dublin’s fair city) — популярная ирландская песня, ставшая одним из неофициальных символов Ирландии. В ней говорится о красивой молодой девушке, торговавшей на улицах Дублина, и умершей молодой. Песня включена в «Индекс народных песен Роуда» под номером 16932.
In Dublin’s fair city, where the girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheel-barrow, through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"

«Alive, alive, oh, Alive, alive, oh»,
Crying "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh".

She was a fishmonger, and sure 'twas no wonder,
For so were her mother and father before,
And they each wheeled their barrow, through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"


She died of a fever, And no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels her barrow, through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, "Cockles and mussels, alive, alive, oh!"
Я в Дублине честном, где дамы прелестны
Впервые увидел красотку Малоун
Тележку катала повсюду, кричала:
«Ракушки и мидии, свежие, о!»

«Свежайшие, о, свежайшие, о,
Ракушки и мидии свежие, о.»

Торговала ракушкой её мать-старушка
И батюшка Молли, покойный Малоун
Тележку таскали повсюду, кричали:
«Ракушки и мидии свежие, о!»


Но злая горячка спалила гордячку
Ничто не спасло нашу Молли Малоун
Её привиденье я видел на Бэйле:
«Ракушки и мидии, свежие, о!»
