Travelling to Wales
Part 1
P r e s e n t e r 1. Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen, our dear guests! We are glad to see
you today at our lesson. We want to demonstrate you our knowledge in Business English and
Country Studying in such situation like getting acquainted, getting about the town, at the
customs, and the hotel and travelling by train. By the way, it’s my favourite kind of travelling.
It is rather fast, interesting and comfortable. Let’s have a look at the railway station. The
trains come in and go out. We can see a train standing at one of the platforms and ready to
leave. It is a long distance train. It has got a lot of carriages, among them a dining car and a
luggage van.
Presenter 2: Some of the passengers are looking out of the windows watching the latecomers,
who are hurrying along the platform to their carriages. Some people are standing on the
platform near the train. They have come to see their friends and relatives off. We can hear
them saying “good-bye” to each other.
Presenter 1: The porters are very busy carrying the passengers’ luggage to the train or
pushing it on their trucks. They are taking trucks with suitcases to the luggage van.
Presenter 2: On another platform the other train has just come in. The passengers are getting
out. Some of them are met by their friends or relatives. This train has made a long journey.
Those are sleeping carriages in front of the train. It is a slow train, it stops at many stations.
Let’s imagine: one family is going to travel to Wales on business. They choose travelling by
train. So: talking with a partner(1),private conversation(2), booking tickets(3).

The first guide
WALES
Wales is the country in the West of Great Britain. The western pocket of Britain is
almost a separate nation, with its own language and culture. In the mid 50s Wales was hit in
the economic crises, its rural areas depopulated. Only tree million people live in Wales now.
Cardiff, the capital of Wales, which was built by Romans in 75, is beautifully planned.
They say it is the greenest city in Wales. The pride of the city is the “Millennium’ stadium for
7000 visitors. The rugby championship of 1999 was held here.
In the centre of the city there is Norman Castle, which was built by Normans in the
XII-th century. Nowadays the conferences of leaders of European Union countries are held
here.
Outskirts of Cardiff. There is a museum in the open air now, but 2000 years ago Celts
had here herds of cattle and sheep were acquired with the use of metal. Later till the mid
50s- miners lived here. On the screen you can see the typical miners’ houses.
A smithy was the central place of every Welsh village. You can see a lecturer, who
tells about the history of the village in Welsh.
The second guide
Welsh language is commonly spoken by about 20 per cent of the population. All the
signs along the Welsh motorways are written both in English and Welsh.
You can see a variety of landscapes in Wales it’s a country of rugged mountains and
deep valleys.6 per cent of Wales is covered by forests and much of the country is the pasture-
land for sheep and cattle.
South Wales is a region of contrasts. The industrial cities of Swansea, Cardiff and
Newport are only a shirt journey away from sandy beaches and busy holiday resorts.
Tembey is a resort in the country of Pembrokeshire. It’s very popular among tourists
and holidaymakers. It has almost subtropical climate.
The third guide
Along the seacoast of the West Wales there is the picturesque national Park,
Pembrokeshire Coast. There are famous resorts and beaches which attract tourists’ attention.
You can see the castle Harbic now. Nearby people play golf the national Welsh
sports game. Now you can enjoy the views of the northern Wales which is called Snowdonia.
It is famous for its castles: Bowery, Co Narvon, Conway. Tourists especially like to walk
along the castle’s walls. These mountain villages are very cozy and comfortable. They attract
not only holiday makers but film makers. Steven Spielberg and Irgman Bergman directed
their films there.
The fourth guide
The Conway Castle is the part of Iron Ring the chain of castles created by James of Saint
George d’Esperange. Right here they announce a new Welsh prince. Snowdonia is the
motherland of bowling the national sport of Wales.
The River Conway is very busy with boating.
The Resort Landudn. You won’t find medieval historical places here. But the resort is a
wonderful place for middleclass and rich people to rest.

cream with Cherry temptation. It consists of milk ice-cream, marshmallow, muss and
cherry filling.
- We’d like to tell you some information about another restaurants and cafes in Cardiff.

sausages and chips, chips with everything in fact!

deserts, and the Welsh, certainly, enjoy sea food.

Conclusion
Presenter1. At our lesson we rolled play some situations from our business course and
country studying. How do you like it?
Presenter 2. Please, tell some words about the importance of learning business English
and Country Studying.
Presenter 1. I think it’s really important as we learnt a lot: how to book tickets, a room at
the hotel, a table at a restaurant, how to order meals at the restaurants.
Presenter 2. After travelling about Wales and Cardiff we know how to get through the
customs control, how to communicate with our business partners and so on. So I think it’s
a very useful course. It prepares us to adult life. We also learn a lot about Great Britain in
Country Studying Course.
Presenter 1. Thank you for your attention! See you later!
