After a War of Independence the USA needed a capital city. It was difficult to choose it because
different cities in different parts of the country wanted to be the nation's capital. In the end it was
decided to build a new city. In 1791 George Washington, the first president, chose the place
where the city now stands. He thought it was a good place because the Potomac River was large
enough for ships to come as far as the site of the city. The land round the city was called the

For the people who live along the banks of the St. Lawrence River the arrival of the ice-breakers
is a very important event each year. When the ice-breakers arrive everyone knows that spring
will soon come and that long Canadian winter is almost over. The slow movement of the icebreaking ships up the river to Montreal is reported over the radio and in the newspapers. Whole
families go on Sunday excursions to the river bank where they spend hours watching the ship at
work.
In March many ships gather in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, waiting for the signal telling them that
the way to Montreal is free. As soon as the signal is given, a race begins for the port. The
winning ship is given a great welcome, and the captain receives a special prize.

Have you ever seen a really big waterfall? At the Victoria Falls the blue Zambezi river, about
two kilometres wide, falls down for over a hundred metres.
These Falls were first discovered by David Livingstone in 1855. He was trying to follow the
Zambezi river to its mouth in a small boat when he came to the Falls. At first he did not see the
great waterfall from his boat. But the noise of the falling water made him stop at an island in the
river and he was saved. He called it 'Livingstone Island'.
Nowadays there is a road and a railway bridge across the river, but those days it was very
difficult even to walk near the Falls because of the thick tropical jungle.

London is famous as a city where businessmen carry umbrellas and wear bowler hats. But do
you know how the umbrella came to England?
The word "umbrella" is Italian, meaning "a little shade". The Italians did not invent the umbrella,
however, it was used many centuries ago in the East as a protection against the sun. In England it
was used more as a protection against the rain and the first man to appear in the streets of
London with an umbrella more than a hundred and fifty years ago was Jonas Hanway. But the
first umbrella user did not have an easy time: he got into trouble with coachmen. They did not
want people to use umbrellas in rainy weather, they wanted them to ride in their coaches.
But the Londoners were so grateful to Jonas Hanway that when he died they erected a monument
to his memory in Westminster Abbey, where it may still be seen to this days.
:
How did the Englishmen use the umbrella?E) They used the umbrella as a protection against the
rain.

When a group of people gathered together, they talked, played cards or other games, read aloud
