Teacher: today we are going to talk about the leisure activities of
teenagers in Russia and in the USA. We will also talk about the TV viewing
habits existing in these two countries.
2.Чтение текста о том, как американские подростки проводят своё
Teacher : Now we are going to read a text about three American teenagers
and how they spend their free time. While reading try to find answers to the
1. Name the leisure activities of these teenagers;
2. Why do they work?
3. What do they need money for?
Many American teenagers don’t spend their free time just sitting around and
doing nothing. Jared Johnson , 15, of Skowhegen works because he wants
to have to spend when he’s not working. Johnson doesn’t just work at one
job doing constructon in Bangor, he also works on weekends at Hannford.
On top of that he has ice hockey games every Sunday, and lifts weights for
football on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “Mostly I’m working to save
money just to have it in case,’’- Johnson said. “ And college is coming up
and I need my own vehicle’’.
When he comes home around 6 p.m. during the week he’s pretty tired, but
still has enough hours of daylight left to go to the movies with friends or
lift weights for football on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. “Mostly I’m
working to save money to have it in case ,’’ Johnson said.
“And college is coming up and I need my own vehicle”. When he comes
home around 6 .p.m. during the week he’s pretty tired, but still has enough
hours of daylight left to go to the movies with friends or lift weights.
But most days he comes home with just enough time left to sit and relax
before eating dinner and going to bed and to do it all again tomorrow. But
Johnson thiks all his hard work will pay off.
My construction work and just working a lot shows that I’m not afraid of
hard work, and I think that will look good on my resume’’- he said.
Lydia Proulx, 14, from Texas uses her job to try to save money for a car.
So, she splits her time between hanging out with friends and working eight
hours a day at the veteran’s home.
Chris Caron, 16, from Skowhegan, USA works four days a week at Burger
King, plays in a summer ice hockey League, races cars with the sports car
club of America, and plays play station games.
Teacher: Do you work during the school year or during your summer
Simple answers: 1. No, unfortunately not. I would like to but most firms
don’t like to employ children and teenagers ;
2. Yes. I worked this summer. I helped our neighbors with their child;
3. Yes, I helped my mother in the shop.

6. Чтение текста о телевизионных пристрастиях американских
подростков (Чтение на основе прочитанного)
T: And now we are going to read a text about the TV viewing habits of
American teenagers and about their favourite leasure activities,.The activity
most popular with girls is hanging out with friends. This increases from 20
percent in Grade 3 (8 year olds). Social activities – friends and shopping
become girls’ clear priorities as they grow older they prefer: TV viewing,
reading for pleasure and sports and declining. Boys want to hang out with
friends too, particurlarly as they grow older. However, computer games are
also a highly favoured activity. As for watching TV, the Simpsons and
friends are the most popular TV programs both with girls and boys.
Top choices among boys are animated programs, comedies and sports. Top
choices among girls tend to be programs featuring people in supposedly
realistic situations and often focusing on social relationships. The kids
surveyed identified the news as one of their most disliked programs but
children of all ages watch it. A large majority agreed that the news makes
them better uniformed. The primary qualities of feel - good shows seem to
be heroism and overcoming the odds Girls’ choices emphasize adventure.
The Harry Potter series and the “Lord of the Rings” movies appear in both
the “feel-good” and “scary” lasts.

T: Today we have talked about the viewing habits of Russian and American
teenagers. We’ve understood that despite the differences, teenagers are
almost the same in different parts of the world (or because teenagers live in
in different countries with such different lifestyles, their interests are also
different). We have all worked hard and your marks are…
I hope you’ve enjoyed our lesson.

your TV channel very much. My favourite
programs are: “Big Races”, “Star factory”,
