A group of Russian tourists is in London for the first time. They want to
see the most famous sights of London. This gentleman is a group leader (GL).
And that one is a correspondent (C). He always asks many questions. And these
ladies and gentlemen are guides (G) from the London Tourists Information
G1: Welcome to London. We start our tour from Tower Bridge. It is the
only Thames Bridge which can be raised. On the right bank of the Thames you
can see the Tower of London. It is one of the oldest buildings in London. It was
founded by William the Conqueror the first Norman king in the 11
century as a
fortress and a palace. Then it was a prison where many famous people died.

Tower for the night.

the British government. It was designed in the Gothic style and built between

Robert Burns. Let’s read the text and answer the questions.
Robert Burns a well known and a popular Scottish poet was born in
1759. He was born in a poor family of a farmer. There were seven children in it.
Robert was the oldest. His father, William Burns, was a farmer and Robert had
to help him. His father loved and understood people and Robert learned from his
father to love people. His mother had a very good voice and she often sang
songs. She knew many folk tales and she told them to her children.
At the age of six Robert went to school because his father wanted him to
be an educated boy. Burns was fond of reading and his favorite writer was
Shakespeare. At the age of 16 he began to write poems. The heroes of his poems
were the heroes of his mother’s stories.
In 1777 he moved to another town. In 1784 his father died and Robert
had to work on a small farm but the farm brought him disappointment and
misery. In 1791 he had to sell the farm and he became an officer.
The young poet felt the injustice of the world and his protest is shown in
his poems. Robert Burns published his book “Poems” when he was 27 years
old. He wrote about kindness and honesty of common people. He took part in
making a book of Scottish folk songs, writing words for many melodies. He
died in 1796 at the age of thirty seven in poverty. His poems are known and

My heart’s in the Highlands my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
A-chasing the wild deer and following the roe,
My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.
Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North,
The birthplace of value, the country of worth,
Wherever I wander: wherever I rove;
The hills of the Highlands forever I love.
Farewell to the mountains high covered with snow;
Farewell to the straits and green valleys below;
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods;
Farewell to the torrents and loud pouring floods.
My heart’s in the Highlands my heart is not here,
My heart’s in the Highlands a-chasing the deer
A-chasing the wild deer and following the roe
My heart’s in the Highlands wherever I go.
G4: Now we are coming to Trafalgar Square. It is in the centre of the
West End. Trafalgar Square was named in memory of Admiral Nelson’s victory
at the battle of Trafalgar in which he was fatally wounded. It was designed

T: The Royal Family is another story. In the past they started wars and
made laws. What does the Queen do now? Listen to the text “A job for life” and
choose correct variants in the test.
A job for life.
Elizabeth II calls the Windsor family a “firm”. She thinks of it as a
business rather than a family. And the main business of the Royal Family is…
well probably being royal and they are paid for it.
The Queen is one of the richest women in the world and she gets about 8
million pounds a year to be the queen.
There are hundreds of traditional ceremonies which the Queen has to
keep. Each year in October there is the State Opening of Parliament. The Queen,
wearing her crown, arrives at the Houses of Parliament by carriage. She reads
the queen’s Speech.
Another traditional ceremony takes place on Thursday before Easter
Sunday. The Queen gives out purses of money to older people who have done
good work. Every summer the Queen gives three or more garden parties at
Buckingham Palace. About 8000 guests come to each party. They drink about
27000 cups of tea, eat 20000 sandwiches and 20000 pieces of cake.
The Queen and other members of the Royal Family often travel abroad.
They meet important visitors. Not long ago Princess Anne came to Moscow for
the opening ceremony of new British Embassy. So their life is quite busy.
Once a week she has a meeting with the Prime Minister. Any law, made
by Parliament, really becomes a law only if the Queen agrees to it. But no king
or queen has refused a new law since 1701. Many people agree that she does her
job well and she deserves her salary.
