Before people stood on the Moon, the United States and the USSR sent robots to the
Moon. These robots would orbit the Moon or crawl on its surface. The robots were
the first man-made objects to touch the Moon. Humans finally landed on the Moon
on the 21st of July, 1969. Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their
lunar ship (the Eagle) on the surface of the moon. Then, as half the world watched
him on television, Armstrong climbed down the ladder of the Eagle and was the first
human to touch the Moon. He said, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap
for mankind." Even though the footprints were left on the moon a long time ago, it is
likely that they are still there, as there is no wind or rain, making erosion extremely
slow.

Addiction is when the body or mind badly wants or needs something in order to work
right. When you have addiction to something it is called being addicted or being an
addict. When somebody is addicted to something, they can become sick if they do not
get the thing they are addicted to. But taking more of the thing they are addicted to
can also hurt their health. Some people who are addicts need to go to a doctor or
hospital to cure the addiction, so they no longer want or need the drug. People can
also be addicted to other things which are not drugs. You may hear people talk about
being "addicted to the Internet" or "addicted to chocolate" or gambling. This means
that they get into a habit of enjoying that thing, so if they have to go without it for a
while, they miss it a lot.

United States Declaration of Independence is an important document in the history


of the United States of America. It was ratified on the 4th of July, 1776. It says that
the Americans were no longer under British rule. Before 1776, the United States of
America was not a country. The individual states were colonies of the British Empire.
This means that the King and Parliament of Great Britain ruled the Colonies. Many
Americans did not like paying taxes to Great Britain when they did not have anyone
to speak for them in Parliament. The American people wanted to be treated like
British citizens. When the King of Great Britain, King George III, and Parliament heard
about the Declaration, they were angry. Great Britain and the people in America had
already been fighting in a war called the American Revolution. America won the war,
and in 1783 Great Britain had to recognize the independence of the new country, the
United States.

Genetically modified food is food which has been produced using organisms that
have been engineered genetically (GM organisms). GM food either contains GM
organisms, or GM organisms have been used to create the food. The first genetically
modified food animal could be salmon. Commercial sale of genetically modified food
began in 1994. Genetically modified foods include: soybean, corn, rice, and cotton
seed oil. The aims include faster growth, production of extra nutrients, or some other
beneficial purpose. GM livestock have also been experimentally developed. Research
is being done on bacteria which would speed up making cheese. Genetically modified
yeast could be used to make beer that has fewer calories.

A Mediterranean climate is a climate that has dry summers that are hot or warm as
well as winters that are cool or mild with moderate or high rainfall. It includes the
climate of much of the land near the Mediterranean Sea. Outside the Mediterranean,

Social networks are held together by common interest. This may be employment,
common interest in a sport or pastime, a religion. Often the network has an identity
of its own which is quite real, even though it may have no official recognition.
Networks may be centered on places, or on families, or on worldwide communities
with common interests. How big a personal network becomes depends on the
individual and the type of relationships considered. The set of people that a person
knows well or with whom a person frequently interacts is usually about several
hundred. There is a so-called "Law of 150" which suggests that about 150 people is
the best size for a village or large clan though most people live in much bigger towns.

An allergy is something which triggers an allergic reaction. This is the immune system
defending the body against attack by bacteria and viruses. Sometimes the system
goes wrong, and is triggered by some quite normal food, or flares up when the family
pet comes into the room. When people come in contact with something they are
allergic to, there can be many different reactions. Their eyes may become very itchy,
and their noses may become drippy or stuffy. They may cough and sneeze. They may
develop a rash. Their faces may swell up. If it is a food allergy, the person may get an
upset stomach. Sometimes a person's throat may swell up so much that the person
can no longer breathe. When this happens, a doctor must give the person a medicine
to make the swelling go down. Some people with allergies to very common things,
like bee stings or fish, carry this medicine with them so it can be used quickly in an
emergency.

About seven billion people live on Earth. They live in about 200 different lands called
countries. Some, like Russia, are large with many large cities. Others, like the Vatican,
are small. The five countries with the most people are China, India, the United States,
Indonesia, and Brazil. About 90% of people live in the north half of the world, which
has most of the land. Scientists think that people originally came from Africa. Now,
70% of all people do not live in Africa but in Europe and Asia. People change the Earth
in many ways. They have been able to grow plants for food and clothes for about ten
thousand years. When there was enough food, they were able to build towns and
cities. Near these places, men and women were able to change rivers, bring water to
farms, and stop floods from coming over their land. People found useful animals and
bred them so they were easier to keep.

Art is a creative activity by people. The artist hopes that it affects the emotions of
people who experience it. Artists express themselves by their art. Some people find
art relaxing. Many people disagree on how to define art. Some say people are driven
to make art due to their inner creativity. Art includes drawing, painting, sculpting,
photography, performance art, dance, music, poetry, prose and theatre. In some
societies, people think that art belongs to the person who made it. They think that the
artist put his or her "talent" into the art. In this view, the art is the property of the
artist. In other societies, people think that art belongs to no one. They think that
society has put its social capital into the artist and the artist's work. In this view,
society is a collective that has made the art, through the artist.

The universities were born in Europe during the Middle Ages. The word "university"
comes from the Latin, roughly meaning "community of teachers and scholars."
Students can attend university to get an academic degree. Unlike the schooling they
have done before, the courses at university are specialized. A person studying biology
at university has many courses about biology and fewer courses in other fields such
as languages or history. To get a higher degree, people must do some research. A
university can include several campuses, or different places where classes are taught.
In each campus there are several faculties and university schools (mainly for
teaching), and also laboratories, departments and institutes of research. Many
campuses also have housing for students in buildings and structures like libraries,
study rooms, and gymnasiums for students that live there.

A clock is a device that tells the time. Some clocks can give the date as well as the
time and a few give other information. There are different types of clocks. A watch is
a type of clock that is small and can be carried. Watches are usually worn on a
person's wrist. At one time, watches were commonly kept in the person's pocket.
Clocks use different ways to measure time. Clocks need some sort of steady beat or
motion to track the change in time. Ancient water clocks worked by the steady
movement of water from a container with a hole in the bottom to another container
without a hole. Other clocks use pendulums, springs and gears to track the change in
time correctly. There are many types of clocks and watches. The two most common
types of displays on clocks are "analog" and "digital".

A calendar is a tool used to decipher the time of an event and for planning things that
have not happened yet. This is done using days, called calendar dates. The dates are
usually made based on how things in the sky seem to move. The year and month are
based on motions of the Sun and moon. By knowing what day something happened
or will happen, people have an easier life. Since the beginning of history, knowing
when the seasons would start for crops was very important for farmers to survive
and feed societies. Calendar systems have a beginning time or era. The calendar era
is often a religion-based event, such as the birth of Jesus, but it may be a political
event such as a coronation or the founding of a state. The three principal calendars
most used today are the Gregorian, Jewish, and Islamic calendars. Other calendar
systems from many different parts of the world are also used.

A cloud is water vapour in the atmosphere. Water on the Earth turns into an invisible
gas and rises up into the sky. Clouds form when the atmosphere can no longer hold
all the invisible air vapor. Higher up where the air is colder, the water condenses: it
changes from a gas to drops of water or crystals of ice. We see these drops of water
as clouds. The drops fall back down to earth as rain, and then the water evaporates
again. This is called the "water cycle". The atmosphere always has some water vapour.
Clouds are not heavy. The water in a cloud can have a mass of several million tons.
Every cubic metre of the cloud has only about 5 grams of water in it. Sometimes,
clouds appear to be brilliant colors at sunrise or sunset. This is due to dust particles
in the air.

A leap year is a year in which an extra day is added to the Gregorian calendar, which
is used by most of the world. While an ordinary year has 365 days, a leap year has
366 days. The extra day is added to the month of February. In an ordinary year,
February has 28 days, but in a leap year, it has 29 days. The extra day, called a leap
day, is the same day of the week as the first day of the month, February 1. Also, in a
leap year, the months of January, April, and July all start on the same day of the
week. A leap year comes once every four years. Because of this, a leap year can
always be evenly divided by four. A number of countries use a lunar calendar. They
have leap years when they add an extra lunar month. Different calendars add the
extra month in different ways.

World Heritage Sites are places in the world which are very important from the
cultural or natural point of view. These places are selected by UNESCO, a part of the
United Nations. The sites are places such as a forest, mountain, lake, desert,
monument, building, complex, or city. As of 2014, 1007 sites in 161 different countries
are listed. There are 779 cultural sites, 197 natural sites, and 31 mixed properties.
Italy has 50 sites on the list, which is the most for any country. Each World Heritage
Site remains part of the legal territory of the nation where the site is located.
UNESCO wants everyone in the world to work to protect each site. Until the end of
2004, there were six criteria for cultural heritage and four criteria for natural heritage.
In 2005, this was modified so that there is only one set of ten criteria. Nominated
sites must be of "outstanding universal value" and meet at least one of the ten
criteria.

Westminster Abbey is a large and famous Anglican church in Westminster, London. It


is the shrine of Edward the Confessor and the burial place of many kings and
queens. Since it was built it has been the place where the coronations of Kings and
Queens of England have been held. The present structure dates from 1245, when it
was started by Henry III. The status of the Abbey is that of a Royal Peculiar. This
means it is place of worship that falls directly under the jurisdiction of the British
monarch. Technically speaking, it is not a cathedral, though it is regarded as one in
practice. One of the most famous tombs at Westminster Abbey is that of the
Unknown Warrior. Westminster Abbey and its small parish church, St Margaret's,
form a UNESCO World Heritage site, which also includes Westminster Palace.

The constitution of a country or a state is a special type of law document that tells
how its government is supposed to work. It tells how the country's leaders are to be
chosen and how long they get to stay in office, how new laws are made and old laws
are to be changed or removed, what kind of people are allowed to vote and what
other rights they are guaranteed, and how the constitution can be changed. Limits
are put on the Government in how much power they have within the Constitution.
On the other hand, countries with repressive or corrupt governments frequently do
not stick to their constitutions, or have bad constitutions without giving freedom to
citizens and others. This can be known as dictatorship or simply "bending the rules". A
Constitution is often a way of uniting within a Federation.

Tax is money that people have to pay to the government. The government uses this
money to pay for things. For example, taxes are used to pay for people who work for
the government, such as the military and police, provide services such as education
and health care, and to maintain or build things like roads, bridges and sewers. Often
because different parts of governments use taxes for different things, people end up
paying lots of taxes. In the United States, for example, the national government has
an income tax; most states have an income tax or a sales tax, or both; and cities and
towns may have a sales tax or a property tax. In some states the sales tax is different
in each county. In ancient times, people from one city or area would attack another
place, and make the people there pay tribute. Tribute meant that the attacked people
would pay money (or other things), and the attacker would stop attacking them.

Archaeology is the study of the past by looking for the remains and artifacts left by
the people who lived long ago. These remains can include old coins, tools, buildings,
and inscriptions. Archaeologists use these remains to understand how people lived.
When archaeologists do fieldwork, they look for the remains, often by digging in the
ground. When things are found, or even when nothing is found, the results of the
fieldwork are taken back to a base. Short term, the base is often on or near the site.
Longer term, the results will usually go to a university or museum. Everything is
written down on paper or entered into a computer. Gradually, they build up a picture
of what happened long ago. Archaeologists publish their research so others can
understand what they learned. Archaeologists do not all study the same civilizations,
they specialize in different areas of interest. Some fields of interest include Ancient
Egypt, Ancient China, or the Vikings.

Extinction is one of the major features of evolution. A species is extinct when no


animal of the species are still alive. All species become extinct sooner or later. The
end of a species may happen for many reasons. It may be caused by habitat loss or
by being overhunted, or by a major extinction event. An example of an animal that is
now extinct is the Dodo, from overhunting. Endangered species are those which may
become extinct. One fifth of plant species may be at risk of extinction. Environmental
change is also important. Organisms become adapted to the environments they live
in. When environment changes quite dramatically, some organisms can adapt to the
changes, others cannot, so they become extinct. The Earth's environment can stay
rather stable for long periods of time. Then the rate of extinction is usually quite low.
The rate of extinction is therefore a useful thing to measure.

Radio is a way to send electromagnetic signals over a long distance, to deliver


information from one place to another. Many people worked to make radio possible.
A machine that sends radio signals is called a transmitter, while a machine that "picks
up" the signals is called a receiver. A machine that does both jobs is a "transceiver".
When radio signals are sent out to many receivers at the same time, it is called a
broadcast. Television also uses radio signals to send pictures and sound. Radio signals
can start engines moving so that gates open on their own from a distance. Radio
signals can be used to lock and unlock the doors in a car from a distance. Radio
waves are still used to send messages between people. Policemen, firemen and other
people who help in emergency use a radio emergency communication system to
communicate. It is like a mobile phone, which also uses radio signals, but the distance
they reach is shorter and both people must use the same kind of radio.

An earthquake is the shaking of the surface of the Earth. Earthquakes are caused by
tectonic movements in the Earth's crust. The main cause is when tectonic plates ride
one over the other, causing mountain building, and severe earthquakes. The
boundaries between moving plates form the largest fault surfaces on Earth. When
they stick, motion between the plates leads to increasing stress. This continues until
the stress rises and breaks, suddenly allowing sliding over the locked portion of the
fault. This releases the stored energy as shock waves. Earthquakes are usually quite
brief, but may repeat. The sudden release of tension in the tectonic plates sends
waves of energy that travel through the Earth. The study of earthquakes is called
seismology. Seismology studies the cause, frequency, type and size of earthquakes.

A skyscraper is a very tall building, usually more than 152 metres in height. Most
skyscrapers are built in urban areas such as cities, and they are very common in the
central business district areas of many large cities including New York City, Chicago,
London, Paris, Sydney, Beijing, Berlin, Toronto, Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
Originally, the word "skyscraper" meant a tall sail on a sailing ship. Over time, the
word's meaning has changed, and today it means a tall building. Until the nineteenth
century, buildings taller than six stories tall were not common. The first building to be
considered a skyscraper, the Home Insurance Building, was built in Chicago, Illinois in
the United States. The building, ten stories high, was built from 1884 to 1885. It was
destroyed in 1931 because they wanted to build another building in its previous
place.

A volcanic eruption occurs when hot materials from the earth's interior are thrown
out of a volcano. Eruptions can come from side branches or from the top of the
volcano. Some eruptions are terrible explosions that throw out huge amounts of rock
and volcanic ash and kill many people. Some are quiet outflows of hot lava. Several
more complex types of volcanic eruptions have been described by volcanologists.
These are often named after famous volcanoes where that type of eruption has been
seen. Some volcanoes may show only one type of eruption during a period of activity,
while others may show a range of types in a series. The volcanic explosivity index is a
scale, from 0 to 8, for measuring the strength of eruptions. Most volcanic eruptions
are of volcanic explosivity indexes between 0 and 2.

Money is what people use to buy things and services. Money is what many people
take for selling their own things or services. There are many kinds of money in the
world. Most countries have their own kind of money, such as the United States dollar

numbers in bank accounts, saved in computer memories. Many people still feel more

A natural satellite in astronomy is a smaller body which moves around a larger body.
The smaller body is held in orbit by gravitation. Bodies which orbit planets are called
moons. They vary in size, and are ball-shaped. The Earth has only one moon. Some
other planets have many moons, and some have none. When people write just "the
moon", they are usually talking about the moon of the Earth. Earth's moon is written
with a capital letter, Moon. Anything that goes around a planet is called a satellite.
Moons are natural satellites. People also use rockets to send machines into orbit
around the Earth. These machines are called artificial satellites.

Pompeii was a Roman city. Now it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the 24th of
August, 79 AD, a volcano called Mount Vesuvius erupted and destroyed the city and
its people, killing 2,000 of them. Pompeii is now considered one of the world's most
important historical sites because of the way the volcanic ash preserved the city and
its people. This gives historians and archaeologists a vivid picture of life in the Roman
Empire around 2,000 years ago. Archaeologists have found graffiti written by the
people who lived in the town. Pompeii is an interesting attraction for tourists from
around the world and is visited by 2.5 million people every year.

Graffiti is marks, scratchings or drawings made on a surface on a public place. It is


often created with paint or spray paint. Graffiti can take the form of art, drawings or
words. When done without a property owner's permission it is considered vandalism.
Sometimes it is just a person's name or a rude word. Sometimes it is as a public
political protest. Today, many graffiti are very complicated mixtures of writing and
pictures. They are sometimes made by gangs and applied with spray-paint to
buildings, bridges, street signs, and other areas. These are often signed with a tag,
which is a shape special to an artist or group.

Modern graffiti was made famous in New York City in the early 1970s by the children
of the working class. They called it "writing," and called themselves "writers." In a
1971 New York Times article, the term "graffiti" was first used to refer to the new
urban art explosion that was becoming popular in New York City. Graffiti can be
thought of as a part of hip hop or street protest. It is often but not always illegal.
Some cities have small areas where graffiti can be made. Some people consider
graffiti as not only something bad, but something good, like art. Some people pay
graffiti artists to do graffiti on their buildings.

Veganism is a philosophy that says people should not use animals. Vegans avoid food
that comes from animals, including meat, eggs and dairy products (like milk, cheese,
and yogurt). Some vegans also do not eat honey. Many vegans try not to use any

avoid products that have been tested on animals. They may believe in animal rights,
and may campaign for it. Vegans eat fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, nuts, and
seeds, and things made from them like vegan sweets, vegan cheese and vegan cakes.
Many people think that it is not healthy to be vegan.

Vegetarianism is the practice of not eating meat or fish. People who follow
vegetarianism are called vegetarians. Vegetarians eat foods like vegetables, fruit,
nuts, beans and grains. Some vegetarians eat or drink animal products, like milk and
eggs. There are many reasons for not eating meat. Some think that it is wrong to kill
animals; others think that eating meat is bad for their health or the world. This is
because land used for animals can be used to grow food. Some people may become
vegetarians because their religion says not to eat animals. Vegetarians who do not
drink milk and eat eggs are called vegans. Vegans also often will not use animal
products like leather, but many vegetarians do use animal products.

of the world population. Urban areas such as big cities have a high population
density. People there live close to each other. In areas with a low population density,
people usually live far away from each other, such as in rural areas out in the

The Black Death was a pandemic that killed millions of people. It started in Europe in
1347, and lasted until 1351. Almost one out of every three people in Europe died
from the disease, so about 25 million. This disease is carried and spread by fleas
living on rats. Traders from the Silk Road may have brought the infected fleas to
Europe. When the fleas bit somebody, they would inject a little bit of the bacteria into
the wound. This would cause the person to be infected. Rats were often on ships.
This meant the disease spread extremely quickly, all over Europe.

A refrigerator is a machine for keeping things cold. It is sometimes called a fridge or


an icebox. People put food and drinks in it, to keep those items cold or good for a
longer time. A refrigerator has a heat pump. It takes heat away from the air inside
the fridge. The heat gets added to the air outside. The heat pump is usually driven by
an electric motor. There are also ice boxes available that do not use electricity
because they are filled with ice to provide the colder temperature. The ice can keep
things cold until the ice melts. These ice boxes can be taken on camping trips.
Sometimes they are called coolers.

Camping is a leisure activity, usually during summer when school children are on
holiday, where people leave their homes and spend one or more nights outdoors.
Usually they seek nature, adventure, or a different environment. They may sleep in a
trailer, a tent, or in the open air in good weather. Winter camping is less common but
in some parts of the world, tents are people's homes year around. When camping,
people usually prepare food to eat that is easy to make. If they were hunting or
fishing, they may cook the animal or fish they caught over a campfire. Dangers can
arise, such as wild animals or illness from drinking unclean water.

Меня зовут Светлана, я преподаватель английского языка.
Я люблю помогать людям, вдохновлять и дарить
положительные эмоции. Я хочу помочь вам разобраться с
экзаменами и сделать подготовку эффективной.

Я знаю ЕГЭ и ОГЭ изнутри. Я несколько лет была


проверяющим экспертом на ОГЭ и ЕГЭ, экзаменатором-
собеседником на устной части ОГЭ (когда она
проводилась без компьютера, в старом формате),
координатором ППЭ (главным организатором-
наблюдателем), организатором и ответственным
организатором в аудитории. А ещё в апреле 2018 года я сама сдала ЕГЭ (результат – 97
баллов), чтобы изучить экзамен ещё и с позиции ученика!

Я внимательно изучаю все инструкции и знаю, где найти ответы на вопросы. Я всегда
беру информацию из официальных источников и даю на них ссылки в спорных
вопросах. Я тот самый человек, который читает все эти скучные инструкции и
многостраничные документы, чтобы докопаться до истины. Долой мифы о ЕГЭ и ОГЭ!

Моя цель – дать вам все инструменты для подготовки и помочь ученикам сдать ОГЭ и
ЕГЭ на максимальные баллы. Именно поэтому я создала всё это:

группу ВКонтакте для подготовки к ОГЭ и ЕГЭ "Svetlana English Online"


https://vk.com/svetlana_english_online
YouTube канал для подготовки к ОГЭ и ЕГЭ
https://www.youtube.com/c/SvetlanaEnglishOnline
тренажёр по говорению для ЕГЭ и ОГЭ
https://speaking.svetlanaenglishonline.ru
бот по грамматике в Telegram
https://telegram.me/svetlanaenglishonlinebot
курсы для преподавателей по подготовке к ОГЭ и ЕГЭ
https://svetlanaenglishonline.ru

Надеюсь, что данное пособие поможет максимально эффективно использовать


тренажёр по устной части ЕГЭ и готовиться к устной части в удобном формате! Буду
рада вашим отзывам о тренажёре и пособии тут:
