The great Britain


                          THE GREAT BRITAIN

     You've been studing English for a long time. But what do you know

about the countries where it is spoken? English has been introduced in

the South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries.

     To the Noth-West of the continent of Europe  there  lie  two  big

islands, called The British Isles. One of these  islands  consists  of

England, Scotland and Walls. The smaller one is Ireland.  The  Nothern

Sea separates England from Germany and Scandinavian  countries,  while

The English Channel separates England from France and Belgium.

     The highest mountains are in Scotland and  Walls.  They  are  not

higher that those in the Crimea. In North-West there are many beatiful

lakes whith green grassy shores all around. There are many  rivers  in

Britain, but none of them are very long.

     The Themse in which London is situated or the Severn  which flows

into the Irish Sea are the longest rivers. Many rivers have been joint

by the channels. So, it is possible to  travel  to  any  part  of  the

country by water.

     The British Isles lie the same distance from the Equator  as  the

central part of the ex-USSR between Moscow and Kiev but the climate is

different from that part of our country. It is much milder, snow never

lies very long on the ground in winter. There's much rain and  fog  in

winter and few sunny days.

     The population is over 52 mln people. London is  the  capital  of

the Great Britain. After the World War II London became  the  greatest

business town-market. Now it is the biggest industrial city. London is

one of the widest sities of the world. It lies on both sides  of river

Themse. You can get there from the continent by air or by sea.

     The London Bridge is 600  years  old.  The  importents  parts  of

London are: the Sity, the West-End, the East-End and  the Westminster.

THe Sity is often  called  the  commercial  heart  of  the  sity.  The

West-End is the richest part of London. It is in the west of  the sity

and it's streets and parks are the finest in the capital. You can find

many museums, theatres and big shops in the West-End. Trafalgar Square

is there too. It is one of the finest with Nelson Column on  it.  Four

big lions are placed in the foot.
