V. Concluding part
Thank you very much for the lesson, tomorrow we`ll continue speaking about the USA. Now let’s write
down your HA: Ex 19 SB
The United States of America is the fourth largest country in the
world. It occupies the southern part of North America and stretches
from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. It also includes Alaska in the
north and Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean. The USA borders on Canada in
the north and on Mexico in the south. It also has a seaboarder with
The USA is made up of 50 states and the District of
Columbia where the capital of the country, Washington, is situated.
The population of the country is about 250 million.
Its flag consists of thirteen horizontal stripes, seven red
alternating with 6 white. The stripes represent the original 13 colonies;
the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are
symbolic as well: Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor, White
symbolizes Purity and Innocence and Blue represents Vigilance,
Perseverance and Justice. Its coat of arm is an eagle that holds the
Olive branch and arrows which denote the power of peace & war.
If we look at the map of the USA, we can see lowlands and
mountains. The highest mountains are the Rocky Mountains, the
Cordillera, and the Sierra Nevada. The highest peak is Mount
McKinley, which is located in Alaska.
America's largest rivers are the Mississippi, the Missouri,
the Rio Grande, and the Columbia. The Great Lakes on the border
with Canada are the largest and deepest in the USA.
Though mainly European and African in origin, the
Americans are made up from nearly all races and nations, including
the Chinese and the native Americans Indians.
The largest cities are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago,
Philadelphia, Detroit, San Francisco, and others.
The Russian Federation is the largest country in the world. The vast
territory of Russia lies in the Eastern part of Europe and in the northern part of
Asia. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation with 143 million
The flag of the Russian Federation is a tricolor flag consisting of
three equal horizontal fields; white on the top, blue in the middle and red on
the bottom. White represents God, blue the Tsar and red the peasants. The two
main elements of Russian state symbols are the two-headed eagle and the
mounted figure slaying the dragon.
There is hardly a country in the world where such a variety of
scenery and vegetation can be found. We have steppes in the south, plains and
forests in the midland, tundra and taiga in the north, highlands and deserts in
the east.
There are two Great Plains in Russia: the Great Russian Plain and
the West Siberian Lowland. There are several mountain chains on the country's
territory: the Urals, the Caucasus, the Altai and others. The largest mountain
chain, the Urals, separates Europe from Asia. There are over two million rivers
in Russia. Europe's biggest river is the Volga flowing into the Caspian Sea.
The main Siberian rivers are the Ob, the Yenisei and the Lena flowing from
south to north. The Amur in the Far East flows into the Pacific Ocean. Russia
is rich in beautiful lakes. The world's deepest lake is Russia's Lake Baikal. It is
much smaller than the Baltic Sea, but there is much more water in it than in the
Baltic Sea. The water in the lake is so clear that if you look down you can
count the stones on the bottom.
Russia has one-sixth of the world's forests. They are concentrated in
the European north of the country, in Siberia and in the Far East.
The capital of Russia is Moscow. It is the country's largest political,
scientific, cultural and industrial centre, and is one of the oldest Russian cities.
