IN THE CARPATHIAN MOUNTAINS
Olha: I say, friends, the holidays are coming. What are we going to do?
Taras: So, travelling, of course.
Olha: Travelling? Where to?
Taras: Well, I like to take walks out in the open.
Andrew: Me, too. I enjoy being outdoors. Do you remember our holiday in to the Carpathian Mountains last year? While I was climbing, I lost my shoe. Oksana: And when I was taking pictures, a donkey came close to me and chewed my skirt.
Taras: And not only that. We nearly got lost when we were examining the ruins of the old fortress.
Olha: A lot to remember.
Taras: That’s just it. It was the most unforgettable holiday of my life.
Oksana: It was summer then. These spring holidays are too short. Maybe we should ask our teacher to take us to Kyiv for a sightseeing tour.
Andrew: Great! I’ve never been to the capital of Ukraine.
But my sister visited it on her winter holidays. She was thrilled to see all its attractions.
– While I Was climbing, I lost my shoe.
– And when I was taking pictures, a donkey came close to me and chewed my skirt.

Talk with your friend about the most unforgettable travelling.
On your Own. Describe your travelling adventure in 8-9 sentences.
E x a m p l e: Last summer my classmates and I travelled to the Carpathian Mountains. When one boy was climbing the mountains, he lost his shoe.
Read Oksana’s article to her school newspaper and say what impressed the girl during her summer holiday.
Last summer our English teacher took us for a one week tour of England. It was a really fantastic trip.
The first place we stopped at was London, the capital of England. The city is famous for its ancient traditions.
Here we enjoyed watching the Changing of the Guard near the Queen’s Palace and we ate a favourite dish of many English children – fish and chips. One thing I’ll never forget is the view of the capital from the London Eye. London seemed so beautiful and absolutely magnificent! It was really breathtaking.
The next day we went to Hyde Park. The place is very exciting and has some famous attractions like a big lake with white swans and green lawns with beautiful flowerbeds. While we were walking in Hyde Park, we met some children from Australia. We were glad to speak English with them and understood each other well.
We also went to a small town not far from London. There is an English school for children all over the world there. Surprisingly, we met the children who we were talking to in Hyde Park. It was an unforgettable time, when we all presented our countries. My friends and I sang Ukrainian songs and danced the Hopak. The children liked our national dance so much that they asked us to teach them. By the end of the party our Hopak became an international dance. Isn’t it great? So, learn English and then go to Britain and have the time of your life.
Read and correct the mistakes. Oksana had a trip to Manchester. She saw the Changing of the Guards near the Queen’s Palace. Oksana went to the British museum on the second day of the tour. In Hyde Park Ukrainian children met children from Canada. In the English school the Ukrainian children presented Britain. Oksana and her friends taught their international friends to sing Ukrainian songs. Act as Oksana and describe her unforgettable summer holiday.
