But the end of December is special because we are looking forward to the New Year and Christmas. So, the topic of our lesson is “New Year and Christmas in Great Britain and in Ukraine”. At our lesson we shall compare traditions and customs in different countries. By the end of the lesson you’ll be able to speak about holidays in our country and in Great Britain.
2. Warming-up activity. Dialogical speech.
T – Let’s start with asking and answering the questions according to the topic: “Winter holidays”, using such expressions as:
It’s interesting to know... I wonder... Can you tell me... Do you know...

I want to know... Tell me, please...

So, pupils, ask and answer the questions. Mind your intonation. Please, start.

P1 – It’s intetrsting to know where did you celebrate New Year party last year at home with your family, relatives or in the restaurant with your friends?

P2 – Last year I celebrated New Year party with my friends in the restaurant. And it’s interesting to know where did you celebrate New Year party?

P3 – Last New Year party I selebrated at home with my family and with my relatives. I wonder did you go to the village or stay at home during Christmas holidays?
P4 – During my Christmas holidays I went to the village with my family to celebrate Christmas and to have the Holy Supper with our grand-parents. Can you tell me when did you celebrate Christmas? I mean the date: the 25th of December or the 7th of January.
P5 – We celebrated Christmas on the 7th of January with my family.

And I want to know how many dishes did you have during the Holy Supper? What were they?
P6 – You Know that Holy Supper has 12 lenter dishes symbolic of the 12 Apostles who gathered with Jesus Christ at the last Supper. The meal is traditionally meatless and milk free. We had such dishes as kutia, beans, fish, varenyky (pyrogy), holubtsi, mushrooms, borhch, buns with fruit and poppy stuffing and compote made from dried fruit.

Tell me, please, did you go out singing carols with your friends and relatives?

P7 – Yes, I did. I went out singing carols with my friends and with our neighbours. And I wonder did you get any presents during Christmas holiday?

P8 – No, I didn’t.

P7 – Why not?

P8 – Because it isn’t a Ukrainian tradition. I got many presents during New Year holiday. Do you know in which countries do people have the tradition to give presents during Christmas holiday?
P9 – I know that children in Great Britain, in USA and in other English-speaking countries get presents during Christmas holidays. I want to know did you have the New Year Tree last year and which of you decorated it?

P10 – Yes, we had the New Year Three and decorated it with all our family because the Green Tree is the symbol of life. And during Holy Supper we put a decoration made from wheat, so-called “Didukh” as the symbol of prosperity.
