Основная часть урока:
Our lesson today is devoted to the English language but we are going not only speak English,
we are going to speak about English. English is a «language that came from nowhere to
conquer the world». Do you agree that English has really conquered the world?
English is the most widespread language in the world and is more widely spoken and written
than any other language. English is the official language in some countries that means that it
is used in government, in schools. For example it is used to solve different world problems.
We can say that the role of English is great nowadays. We can call it as a mother tongue, an
official, an international, a foreign, a modern and a widespread language. On the screen we
have these words and their definitions. I would like you to match them, and then evaluate

T: So we have proved that English is the world language. But there is one more reason why
English can also be called the world or international language. I would like you to read the
text and try to understand what the text is about. (распечатки)
Nowadays English has become the world's most important language in politics and
science. It is the official language of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern
Ireland, of the United States of America, of Australia and New Zealand. English is used as
one of the official languages in Canada, the Republic of South Africa and the Irish Republic.
It is also spoken as a second language by many people in India, Pakistan. The number of
second-language speakers may soon exceed the number of native speakers, if it has not done
so already. The working languages of the United Nations are English and French. All
documents are written only in the working languages. English has become now the language
of international communication. At present no other language on Earth is better suited to play
the role of world language. People who speak English fall into one of three groups: those
who have learnt it as their native language, those who have learnt it as a second language in a
society which is mainly bilingual and those who are force to use it for a practical purpose -
professional or educational. Nowadays when science and technology are progressing so fast
all kind of specialists need English in their work.
