Ролевая игра по теме “Learning English”
Student A is a journalist, student B is Alex. Discuss the question why it is important to learn
Why do you learn English?
Nowadays English has become the world's most important language in politics, science, trade and cultural relations. Half of the world's scientific literature is in English. It is the language of computer technology. To know English today is absolutely necessary for every educated man, for every good specialist.
Do you like English?
I’m interested in reading. English is the language of the great literature. It’s the language of Shakespeare, Byron, Mark Twain and Jack London. To enjoy wonderful books people should read them in the original.
And what about other students? What do they think?
As for my friends, they think that English helps to communicate with other people. People can travel abroad without any problems, people can have friends everywhere and send them letters, make phone calls and make people closer to each other in the world. It’s the main reason why English is very popular.
I quite agree with you.
Moreover, young people like English because it’s the language of rock, jazz and pop music. For example: Elton John, Madonna, Britney Spears and Paul McCartney. A good knowledge of English let us understand the words of all our favourite English songs. And, of course, we will be able to watch British and American films in the original. It’s cool.
Good for you, Alex. Thank you very much. You have given me a lot of useful and important information. Good bye.

«Of course, you may learn German, Spanish, French, Chinese, but you must know English!»Учащиеся выбирают один из предложенных учителем билетов на телевизионную встречу и разбиваются по группам.
В роли корреспондента выступает один из учеников класса.
Teacher: “Good morning, Mr. White, nice to meet you. Mr. White is an English journalist. He is going to write an article about learning the English language and he wants to know what students think about learning English.
Mr. White: “Good morning, nice to meet you too. Dear friends, I would like to know your opinion about the necessity of learning English. Nowadays English is heard everywhere. Why is English so popular? Is it necessary to learn English?”
Каждая группа приводит свои аргументы в защиту той или иной точки зрения.
Learning English may be the best thing you can do to improve your life and open new doors. First of all, you get access to knowledge.
Nobody needs so much knowledge. We live in the age of information, and we already get more information than we need.
But you can do wonderful things, such as watch films, read great books. Believe us, music is much better if you can understand the words.
Mr. White - : “I think that’s true. Moreover, knowing English will help you to get well-paid job.
English is also the international language of business people, pilots and sportsmen, scientists, secretaries of big companies and many other professions. If a person knows English, he will get a good job and earn a lot of money. That’s why English is very popular now. We learn English and we are sure it will help us in our future life.”
But we think that in future, most people will speak more than one language. And English is difficult to learn.
Maybe the best thing would be to try to study regularly. It’s more effective to study 30 minutes every day than 3 hours once a week.
Mr. White - Do you think that the fastest way to learn English is to practice it?
Certainly. A good way to have more practice and improve English is to make a pen-friend, exchange letters or e-mail letters regularly. This will help you to speak English more fluently.
Mr. White - Well, thank you for discussion. I was really glad to listen to you. Your opinions are different, but there is something common in what you say. English is really the most popular language in the world.
Письменное речевое произведение.
It’s not surprising, that English is one of the most important languages nowadays. English is spoken practically all around the world. Learning English is beneficial to all. First of all, you get access to knowledge. It is necessary in different spheres. Today’s media, such as the internet, television, the press, give us almost unlimited information about our favourite subjects. Most of this information is in English. Knowing English will let us get our dream job, earn more money and create our future. To my way of thinking, learning foreign languages is very useful because it helps us to communicate with people from other countries, to understand another culture, to make a person educated and well rounded. I learn English because it expands my horizons and prepare me for my successful career. Besides, English attracts me because it’s the language of business and computers. Moreover, English is very useful when you travel abroad. When you speak English to people, they are more friendly and helpful. There are a lot of ways of teaching: listening to the cassettes, reading and translating texts and making dialogues, doing many exercisings, using the Internet. Besides, a marvellous opportunity to communicate with native speakers through the Internet is very important. What is more, I would like to take part in different exams and in some exchange programmes. It is very useful for me! Learning English at school helps me to choose the future profession. I want to be an interpreter, because I know that it’s a very interesting and well-paid job. But learning English makes me more intelligent and understanding the English speech.
To sum up, I’m aware that learning English is always necessary, no matter what your future profession will be.
