The modern world is becoming smaller all the time. Every day distances between different countries seem less. For this reason it's becoming more and more important to know foreign languages, especially English. English is very popular nowadays. It's the language of computers, science, business, politics, sports, arts and music. It's spoken all over the world. It is the

official language of the United Kingdom, New Zealand, the United States of

America, and Australia. It is one of the official languages of Canada, the Irish

Republic, and the Republic of South Africa. Many English words were borrowed from the language of Angles and Saxons. Hundreds of French words came into English. These French words didn't crowd out corresponding Anglo-Saxon words. There exist "act" and

"deed", "beautiful" and "pretty", "form" and "shape". Some new words were brought by traders and travellers. These words came from all parts of the world: "umbrella" – from Italian, "tea" – from Chinese, "cigar" – from Spanish. Many of the new English words – especially new scientific ones – have been made from Latin and Greek words instead of English ones. "Telephone" for instance, was made from Greek words "far" and "talk". To know English today is absolutely necessary for every educated person, for every good specialist. But learning the language is not easy. It's a long and slow process that takes a lot of time and patience. But it is worth doing. English is taught throughout the world and a lot of people speak it quite well. In Russia English is very popular, it is studied at schools, colleges and universities.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is situated

on the British Isles. The British Isles consist of two large islands, Great Britain

and Ireland and about five thousand small islands. Their total area is over

244,000 square kilometers.The United Kingdom is made up of four countries: England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. Their capitals are London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and Belfast respectively. Great Britain consists of England, Scotland, Wales and does not include Northern Ireland. But in everyday speech "Great Britain" is used to mean the United Kingdom. The capital of the UK is London. The British Isles are separated from the continent by the North Sea and the English Channel. The western coast of Great Britain is washed by the Atlantic

Ocean and the Irish Sea.

Shakespeare called Britain a "precious stone set in the silver sea" because

of its natural beauty. It has a varied countryside where you can find mountains,

plains, valleys and sandy beaches. Ben Nevis in Scotland is the highest mountain,

but it is only 1343 meters high.

There are a lot of rivers in Great Britain, but they are not very long. The

Severn is the longest river, while the Thames is the deepest and the most important

one. The mountains, the Atlantic Ocean and the warm waters of Gulf Stream

influence the climate of the British Isles. It is mild the whole year round. The

British often say: "Other countries have a climate; in England we have weather".

The weather in Britain is very changeable. A fine morning can change into a wet

afternoon and evening. And a nasty morning can change to a fine afternoon.

That's why it is natural for the British to use the comparison "as changeable as the

weather" of a person who often changes his mood or opinion about something.

The British also say that they have three variants of weather: when it rains

in the morning, when it rains in the afternoon or when it rains all day long.

The UK is one of the world's smallest countries. Its population is over

60 million. About 80% of the population lives in cities. The UK is a highly developed industrial country. It is known as one of the world's largest producers and exporters of machinery, electronics, textile, aircraft,and navigation equipment. One of the chief industries of the country is ship building. The UK is a constitutional monarchy. In law, the Head of State is the

Queen. But in practice, the Queen reigns, but does not rule. The country is ruled by the elected government with the Prime Minister at the head. The British

Parliament consists of two chambers: the House of Lords and the House of

Commons. There are three main political parties in Great Britain: the Labour,

the Conservative, and the Liberal parties.

The United States of America is the fourth largest country in the world

(after Russia, Canada, and China). It occupies the southern part of the North

American Continent and stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. It also

includes Alaska in the north and Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean. The total area of

the country is about nine and a half million square kilometers. The USA borders

on Canada in the north and on Mexico in the south. It also has a seaboarder

with Russia. The USA is made up of 50 states, each of which has its own government ,and the District of Columbia, a special federal area where the capital of the country, Washington, is situated. The population of the country is more than

270 million.The USA is a federal republic. According to the US Constitution the powers of the government are divided into 3 branches: the executive, headed by the President, the legislative, exercised by the Congress, and the judicial. The Congress consists of the Senate and the House of Representatives. There are two main political parties in the USA: the Republican and the Democratic, though there's hardly any difference between their political lines. If we look at the map of the USA, we can see lowlands and mountains. The highest mountains are the Rocky Mountains, the Cordillera, and the Sierra Nevada. The highest peak is Mount McKinley which is located in Alaska.

America's largest rivers are the Mississippi, the Missouri, the Rio Grande,

and the Columbia. The Great Lakes on the border with Canada are the largest

and deepest in the USA. The climate of the country varies greatly. The coldest regions are in the north. The climate of Alaska is arctic. The climate of the central part is continental. The south has a subtropical climate. Hot winds blowing from the Gulf of Mexico often bring typhoons. The climate along the Pacific coast is much warmer than that of the Atlantic coast.

The USA is a highly developed industrial country. It's the world's leading

producer of copper and oil, and the world's second producer of iron ore and

coal. Among the most important manufacturing industries are machine building, shipbuilding, automobile and armaments industry and others. Though mainly European and African in origin, Americans are made up of nearly all races and nations, including Chinese and Native Americans. The largest cities are: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, San-Francisco, Washington, etc.
