century Britain became a rich industrial country, a real Empire with a lot of
colonies all over the world.

-Do you agree that English was just the language of transport and trade? The matter is: British sailors
brought from the colonies so many new things and the names of them, that English became one of the
richest languages of the world!

Robert Burns, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde… - But the greatest is William Shakespeare!

From Venice”, “All’s Well That Ends Well”, “Othello”…

This song was a good ending of our lesson, I should say.
But before we say good-bye to each other let me tell you some words about our today’s lesson and your
work at it.
We’ve done a lot of work today: we’ve explored how and why English has become the first truly global
language, we’ve remembered the past of this country; we’ve spoken about the greatest dramatist of the
world, we’ve practised speaking, listening and writing.
Now when you realize the importance of studying English, I hope, you will do your best, you will study
better and better with every passing day.
