Task 1.
Read the text and mark the statements True (T), False (F), Not Stated (NS).
History of the Rouble.
The rouble has been the currency in Russia for 500 years. The name “rouble” is thought
to come from the Russian for “chop”, literally referring to the way a section was cut off
a silver ingot, each section had a different value according to its weight.
Since December 2013 the official symbol of the Russian rouble is the Cyrillic letter P
with a single added horizontal stroke.
In 1710 the rouble was first divided into kopeks, 100 of which made up a rouble. Ten
roubles are sometimes referred to as chervonets. Historically, it was the name for the
first Russian three-rouble gold coin issued for general circulation in 1701. The current
meaning comes from the Soviet golden chervonets issued in 1923. All these names are
no longer in use, however.
In the 18
th
century half a kopek or a single kopek were made from copper, while five
kopeks up to 50 kopeks and one rouble coins were originally made from gold.
After the Russian civil war, silver was used for lower value coins with gold chervonets
minted in 1923. In 1961 new materials such as aluminium and bronze were introduced,
along with nickel and zinc.
Between 1769 and 1917 there were only Imperial issued bank notes, or assignats. After
1917 the provisional government issued bank notes, called kerenki. Soon after, in 1918
state credit notes were issued, followed by currency notes the following year.
1. Russian rouble has a long history.
2. Several centuries ago one of the tsars introduced rouble as Russian currency.
3. In old times only merchants used roubles.
4. The symbol of the rouble is double “P”.
5. In the 18
th
century rouble was divided into kopeks.
6. The names are still used when shopping.
7. Gold, silver and bronze are used to make coins nowadays.
8. Banknotes appeared in the Soviet period for the firs time.
Task 2.

1. Modern versions.
2. The day to mark records.
3. The origin of the name.
4. A collection of records.
5. The talented brothers.
6. The beginnings.
A. Guinness World Records, known until 2000 as The Guinness Book of Records is
a reference book published annually, containing a collection of world records,
both human achievements and the extremes of the nature world. The Guinness
Book of Records was first published on 27 August 1955 and in 50 years it sold
more than a hundred million copies.
B. On an unknown date in November 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver (1890-1967) was out
shooting. That evening it was realized that it was not possible to confirm in
reference books whether or not the golden plover was Europe’s fastest game bird.
It occurred to Sir Hugh, managing director of the Guinness Breweries, that there
must be numerous other questions debated in Britain and in Ireland, but there was
no reference book with which to settle arguments about records. He realized then
that a book supplying the answers to this sort of question might prove popular.
C. On 12 September 1954, Sir Hugh invited the twins Norris and Ross McWhirter to
see if their agency in London could help. After founding The Guinness Book of
Records at 107 Fleet Street, London, the first 197-page edition came out on 27
August 1955 and went to the top of the British bestseller lists by Christmas. The
McWhirters continued to publish it for many years. Both brothers had an
encyclopedic memory on the TV series Record Breakers, based on the book,
they were asked questions by children in the audience on various world records
and could usually give the correct answer.
D. Recent editions have focused on record feats by human competitors.
Competitions range from obvious ones such as weightlifting to the longest egg
tossing distance. Besides records about competitions, the book contains such facts
as the most poisonous plant, the shortest river, the longest running drama in the
USA, etc. Many records also relate to the youngest person who achieved
something.
E. In 2005, Guinness designated 9 November as International Guinness World
Records Day to encourage breaking world records. For many records, Guinness
World Records is the effective authority on the exact requirements for them.
Guinness World Records sells about 3.5 million copies a year in 23 languages in
a hundred countries.
