II. Reading.

Read the text.


In England and Wales compulsory school begins at the age of five, but before at age children can go to a nursery school, also called play school. School is compulsory till children are 16 years old. There are two systems of state school, depending on the county:

System A:Primary School from 5 to 11; Secondary School from 11 to 16/18. Primary school is usually divided into two sections: infant school (ages 5Ч7) and junior school (ages 7Ч11).


System B:First School from 5 to 8; Middle School from 8 to 13; Secondary School from 13 to 16Ч18.

In Primary School and First School children learn to read and write and the basics of arithmetic. In the higher classes of Primary School (or in Middle School) children learn geography, history, religion and, in some schools, also a foreign language. Physical education is usually done twice a week. Outside the normal time-table there are many activities in which students may take part: sports, drama, table tennis and so on. Secondary Schools can be divided into: Grammar, Secondary Modern and Comprehensive, according to the system adopted by the local education authority. The majority attend comprehensives which incorporate all schoolchildren into one scheme. The children are, therefore, of mixed abilities and may come from a wide variety of social backgrounds.

Some critics of this system argue that bright academic, children suffer and that average standards are low. When students are 16 years old, they may take an exam in various subjects in order to have a qualification. These qualifications can be either G.C.S.E. (General Certificate of Secondary Education) or "0 level" (Ordinary level). Students can choose any number of subjects in their curriculum; some may take six or seven G.C.S.E.s, some only two. After sitting their "0 levels" or G.C.S.E.s students can either leave school and start working or continue their studies in the same school as before. If they continue, when they are eighteen, they have to take further examinations, called "A levels" (Advanced or Academic levels), normally two or three, which are necessary for getting into university or college.

Some parents choose independent schools for their children. These are very expensive but considered to provide a better education and good job opportunities. The stages of education in independent schools are called in a different way: children from 5 to 8 attend a preparatory school; between the ages of 8 and 13 they go to a preparatory (or prep) school; from 13 to 18 they attend a public school, but only if they pass an examination called "Common Entrance". The oldest and most exclusive Public Schools are Eton College, founded in 1440, Harrow, founded in 1571, and Rugby, founded in 1567.

Let me introduce myself you. I'm Pete. I study foreign languages the teachers' training college Kyiv. This is my first semester the college, and I'm my first year studies. We study English a very good teacher. Our classes start 8.30 the morning. We have two or three classes English, a lecture or a seminar a day. Yesterday we had a lecture Linguistics, a seminar Psychology and a class English Grammar. the end this semester we'll take our exam in English. If I pass it and get a good mark, I'll be very happy. our English classes we do a lot work: we read texts aloud to practice our pronunciation, listen the tapes and repeat the speaker, make dialogues and dramatize them, learn poems heart, write new words and expressions, translate English Ukrainian and English.__________ our classes Grammar we listen the teacher (the instructor) who explains us new grammar rules, retell stories, both orally and writing and put questions the text. Sometimes we make dialogues this or that conversational topic. Every two weeks we write tests, and them we are to do error correction.

Now let me tell you a few words my groupmates. general, they are rather good English, because they all work hard their grammar and pronunciation. Lena is quite home grammar, she speaks English so fluently, that she is taken an English girl. The point is that she works the language day and night. She wants to have a good command

the language. As for Lucy, she often misses classes English conversation, that's why she is

very poor grammar. And pronunciation comes difficult her, as she doesn't attend the sound lab. As a result, she has far too many mistake's her dictations and tests and now she is lagging the group, I'm afraid it'll take Lucy a lot of time to catch the group. It's really no good when some students work fits and starts.

As my progress English, I can't say I'm very strong phonetics, but the whole English comes easy me. My favorite subject is Grammar, and I can pore books hours.

the way, Grammar is very popular our students, though it may seem strange you. Many

them have already made good progress spoken English, and I'm sure they won't fail the exams.

If you have any problems your studies, be it spelling or pronunciation, grammar or vocabulary, just try to read books the original, it is one the ways mastering and bettering a language. If you want to get a good knowledge English, you should moveheaven and earth (try your best).
