Добро пожаловть в мой блог

Когда-то все учителя были учениками, и у них были дневники. Но не все ученики после школы возвращаются в нее, а те, кто вернулся, иногда ведут записи. Блокнот и ручка сейчас под рукой гораздо реже, чем ноутбук и интернет, но желание поделиться тем, что пришло в голову и накипело или просто встретилось в сетевых джунглях, от времени не зависит.

Учителя английского, не хочу никого обидеть, конечно - исторически более неисторические люди, нежели все остальные предметники - формула воды не изменится (в ближайшее время, надеюсь))), слониха не родит кенгуренка (добровольно), а против лома не будет приема. Язык - совершенно иное дело. Постоянно меняющийся, наполняющийся новыми смыслами и тут же отмирающий - постоянно держит в состоянии поиска новых форм, заставляет искать новые пути, средства, непрерывно совершенствовать методы воздействия - это неизбежно в случае, когда носители изучаемого языка - не твои закадычные друзья из соседнего подъезда (((( Поэтому, словом или жестом, железом или софтом, через нет или смс - мы стараемся! (в силу своих бюджетных способностей и внебюджетной энергии)

The term "gadget" has become an iconic symbol of the last decades and it stands for a lot of the latest inventions that feed our hunger for smart devices.
Smart phones and watches, tablets and e-books, digital cameras and fitness trackers, smart kitchen appliances and vacuum-cleaning robots — the list of gadgets is really endless and it continues to be updated nearly every week! The key issue of their popularity is the fact that they make our life drastically different — they help to cope with all daily routines like household chores almost without any difficulties.

Вариант эссе "Choosing a career path" для 10 курса

Some say young people should choose the career they want to follow on their own. Others say that the choice should be made by teachers and parents. What do you think?

There is no doubt that career has a crucial role to play when it comes to fulfilling one’s desires and ambitions. These days it has become a growing trend for many young adults to select their career path in particular area by themselves instead of discussing it with teachers and parents. To see whether this practice gives rises to greater concerns or offers more upsides, we have to look at both sides of the debate.

Варианты темы Mass media для 9-10 курсов с подстрочником

Mass media
Mass media is a broad concept. It includes radio, television, newspapers, magazines, Internet and else. It’s hard to imagine life without mass media nowadays. Media plays very important part in everyday life. It informs us about current affairs in the world. It educates us, gives a possibility to learn something new. It certainly entertains us in different ways. Mass media influences the way people dress, eat, communicate and many other parts of our lives. It can often make people change their views on different matters. Millions of people watch TV every day, listen to the radio in cars, read newspaper and magazines. Everyone finds something interesting through means of media. Of course, not all that we see, hear or read is objective. Sometimes the information can be altered. However, I believe that good reporters try to deliver us only reliable information. My favourite types of media are TV and Internet. I often watch interesting films on TV or educational channels, such as Animal Planet and National Geographic. As for Internet, it probably unites all media sources nowadays. So I can easily watch the same films or channels online. Besides, Internet is also used for mass communication, so I use it to talk to my friends. I don’t usually listen to the radio but if my parents turn it on in the car, I enjoy it. We also buy sometimes newspapers and magazines from kiosks.

Темы для пересказа с подстрочником (9-10 курс)

The World of Books
"Except for a living man there is nothing more wonderful than books! They teach us and open their hearts to us as brothers", wrote Charles Kingsiey, an English writer of the 18th century. Books play a very important role in our life. They not only teach us, they stir our imagination, expand the boundaries of the familiar world, and fill our life with great expectations of joy and happiness. They give us a unique chance to link up with authors who lived hundreds of years ago. Thanks to books we can talk to people who lived in different ages and countries. With their help we can not only look into the past but foresee the future. The book is a faithful and undemanding friend: it can be put aside and taken at any moment. So we can learn a lot of useful, interesting, exciting things about the world we live in. There are different kinds of books. Children like to read and to be read fairy tales, fable, short stories. Teenagers are fond of historical novels, adventure books, science fiction. Women find it exciting to read love-stories and detectives. Some people, though, take a great interest in reading memoirs, atlases, encyclopedias and textbooks. In ancient times books were written by hand, and it took a very long time to write a whole book and to make several copies of it. The number of books in those days was very little. Only very rich people could afford having them. That's why printing played a great role in the development of culture, science, and of course, literature. Nowadays thousands of books are published every year in numerous publishing houses. There is no problem where to find a good book for reading. A lot of bookshops, libraries and reading-halls are at your disposal. In the library you can find not only a needed book, but a magazine or a newspaper, too. You only have to look through the author catalogue or through the subject catalogue, find the name of the author, or the title of the book you want. And in no time the librarian will bring this edition to you.

Мир книг
"За исключением человека, нет ничего более чудесного, чем книги! Они учат нас и открывают нам свои сердца как братья", - писал Чарльз Кингсли, английский писатель XVIII века. Книги играют очень важную роль в нашей жизни.
Они не только учат нас, они волнуют наше воображение, раздвигают границы знакомого мира и наполняют нашу жизнь большим ожиданием радости и счастья. Они дают нам уникальный шанс сблизиться с писателями, которые жили сотни лет назад. Благодаря книгам мы можем разговаривать с людьми, которые жили в разные века и в разных странах. С их помощью мы можем не только заглянуть в прошлое, но и предвидеть будущее. Книга - верный и нетребовательный друг: её можно отложить в сторону и взять снова в любой момент. Так что мы можем узнать много полезных, интересных и волнующих вещей о мире, в котором мы живём. Есть разные виды книг.  Дети любят читать и любят, когда им читают сказки, басни, рассказы. Подростки увлекаются историческими романами, книгами о приключениях, научной фантастикой. Женщины находят захватывающими романы о любви и детективы. Некоторые, однако, увлекаются чтением мемуаров, атласов, энциклопедий и учебников. В древние времена книги писались от руки, и требовалось много времени, чтобы написать целую книгу и сделать несколько копий её. Количество книг в те дни было очень маленьким. Только очень богатые люди могли себе позволить иметь книги. Поэтому книгопечатание сыграло большую роль в развитии культуры, науки и, конечно, литературы. В наше время ежегодно в многочисленных издательствах выходят тысячи книг. Это уже не проблема, где достать хорошую книгу для чтения. В вашем распоряжении множество книжных магазинов, библиотек и читальных залов. В библиотеке Вы можете найти не только нужную книгу, но и журнал или газету. Вам нужно только просмотреть авторский каталог или предметный каталог, найти имя писателя или название книги, которую Вы хотите взять. И вскоре библиотекарь принесёт вам это издание.

Вариант темы "Eating habits and lifestyle" для 10 курса КПКУ

In recent years, the food and beverage industry in the world has perceived children and the youth as a dominant market force. For this reason, children and adolescents have been targeted by extreme, devoted food marketers and advertisers.
The childhood obesity epidemic is a serious public health problem that increases morbidity, mortality, and has substantial long term economic and social costs.
Everyone should think twice before deciding to eat fast food. There are many health risks when it comes to eating food that’s made within a matter of seconds. The health risks aren’t worth your life, and animals that live in slaughter houses may not be treated properly or hygienically before their death, which can cause many food-borne illnesses to inhabit your sandwich. Although it is easy to buy and cheap, it can cost thousands of dollars in hospital bills. And you cannot solely blame the restaurant for your own eating habits.

Вариант темы "Avoiding environmental crisis" для 10 курса

I think that reducing global environmental damage should be handled by governments rather than individuals. Lack of individual participation is a worrying concern and every single human has a crucial role in joining hands with the government in reducing the harm caused to the environment. But what can one individual do to protect the environment? Very little, it may seem, especially compared to the power of governments and huge industrial companies.  For example, I always remember to save energy by switching off lamps, my laptop and other electronic stuff that I do not use permanently. Our next obligation is to separate waste and throw garbage only in the designated areas. Driving vehicles can also be environmentally friendly. For example, we have to avoid accelerating the engines too rapidly or using the air conditioning where it would be better to save energy and simply open the windows. Three people can ride together in one car instead of driving three cars to work. We can also use public transport, ride a bike, or simply walk.  Working together with dozens, hundreds, or millions of other people, we can influence and change state policies which are mostly neglectful to our environment.
