III. The  main part

Listening and reading (ex 1, p.84)

John: Have you had a nice evening?

Terry: Yes, I have been watching documentary film on TV.

John: Really? What was it about?

Terry: About sea trip to Great Britain.

John: A sea trip? I would prefer flying there by plane.

Terry: Sure, it is the fastest way of travelling. But if you want to make your visit to Great Britain more exciting, you should choose the other way.

John: Well, what is it like?

Terry: First you go to Calais by train, and then cross the Strait of Dover on board the channel boat. The English Channel is rather narrow here – only thirty-two miles wide and the crossing takes only an hour and a quarter. Then you’ll see the White cliffs of Dover.

John: Dover? What is it?

Terry: Dover is one of the most ancient ports. Right above the harbour on a cliff stands Dover Castle called “The Key of England”.

John: Really? It sounds interesting… Can you show me the way on the map?


T. I hope you were attentive and now you can answer my questions.

- What film did Terry watch yesterday?

- What way of travelling is the fastest?

- What way of travelling to Britain would Terry choose?

- What channel separates Great Britain from the continent?
