Ps: Everyone speaks English; is that true? 
I love to speak in English, how about you? 
My mum drives like English, my father likes English food, 
My sister sings in English, our dog barks the English tune.

Going to school? No, thank you! 
When I was nine I dreamt about having a band.
All the fuss about learning English …
Why necessary? I did not understand…

Although I'm older now I still don't like to learn, 
But knowing English became my biggest concern, 
I want to travel places I've never been before, 
Meet people, order cucumber sandwiches and much more.

I watch movies without subtitles and read English books, 
At foreign boys (or girls) I'd someday like to have a look
And when I grow up I will desperately look for work, 
Then knowing English language will definitely be a perk. 


Вед.     Good morning, pupils!

            Today we’ll  have an entertaining and educating game .Let’ s play brain-ring.


- Every intellectual person should know these words of wisdom: “Veni, vidi, vici”. Guy Julius Caesar once said them. He used them in order to inform Rome about his fast victoryIf we translate Latin words into English it will sound like “Came, saw and won”.
