A. One of Europe’ s most famous extinct animals is the aurochs.
It was a huge type of cattle. Aurochs appeared in India about two
million years ago, migrated into the Middle East and further into
Asia, and reached Europe about 25 0 ,0 0 0 years ago. By the 13th
century AD the aurochs lived only in Poland, Lithuania, Moldavia,
Transylvania and East Prussia. Only very rich people and later
only kings were allowed to hunt the aurochs. If somebody killed an
aurochs, this person was killed too. In 1564 only 38 animals were
left. The last aurochs died in 1627 in the Jaktorow Forest, Poland.
The skull (череп) of the animal was later taken by the Swedish Army
and is now kept in the museum of the Royal Palace in Stockholm.
B. Great Auk has been extinct since 1844. It was also known as
garefowl, or penguin. The huge bird stood about 75 centimetres
high and weighed about 5 kilograms. It had white and black
feathers. In the past the auk was found in great numbers on islands
off eastern Canada, Iceland, Norway, Ireland and Great Britain. It
was eventually hunted to extinction.
C. Cave lion became extinct 2000 years ago. It was one of the
largest lions ever. An adult male which was found in 1985 in
Germany was 1.2 metre high at his shoulder and was 2.1 metre long
without a tail. So, it was about the same size as a very big modern
lion or a modern tiger. The cave lion once lived everywhere from
the British Isles to the Yukon in Canada. In 2015, on the Uyandina
River in Siberia, two cave lion cubs were found by people collecting
mammoth tusks (бивни мамонта). The babies were two or three
weeks old. Some 12 000 years ago they were buried in the ice. They
are in a very good condition. Their fur, legs, tails, ears, eyes and
even whiskers can be seen. They will be studied by scientists who
are planning to learn more about their lifestyle, family connections
and eating habits.

Agatha Christie’s House
If you like detective stories, you

cen tre / p la ce o f in terest. Agatha
Christie’ s house (2) is m entioned /
is situated / is made in the South of
Britain. Even now, forty years after
she died, Agatha Christie is the best­
selling author in the world.
There has always been a house in this place. The building (3) was
first mentioned / was situated / was built in 1493 as ‘Greynway’ .
In the late 16thcentury it was a Tudor house called Greenway court.
The present Georgian house was built in the late 18th century.
Greenway was Agatha Christie’ s (4) hard-working / hospitable /
worth visiting holiday home in Devon. It was where she spent her
summers. Greenway was bought by Agatha Christie and her husband
in 1938. It was given to the National Trust by her children a few
years ago. The garden was opened to the public in 2009.
The (5) three-storeyed / two-storeyed / skyscraper white house
stands on the (6) picturesque / modern / hospitable (7) banks / car
parks / fences of the River Dart with views down towards the sea.

citizens / visitors to come by boat. If you arrive by boat, you will
easily see the bluish-green (10) garage / roof / fitness centre of
the house with a few (11) river banks / cottages / chimneys from
far away. The (12) garage / balcony / car park is very small, so if
you want to come by car, you will need to ring and book a parking
space beforehand.
The house is full of the collections which were made by the family
in the Middle East — Agatha Christie’ s second husband was an
archaeologist. The writer’ s favourite room was the library, where
a mural was painted by an American soldier during World W ar
II. The mural has (13) suffered / survived / situated and now is as
bright and fresh as it used to be in Agatha Christie’ s times.
The gardens are (14) hard-working / high-rise / attractive — they

will enjoy both the house and the gardens. And if you are musical,
you will even be allowed to play Agatha’ s own grand piano!

roads, to feel the air which was dirty from the cars and the
factories. They had to run away from the town dogs. A t the town
mouse’ s house the food was really delicious, but all the time, while
eating, the two mice were on the look-out for the angry people and
the cats they kept to kill mice.
E. One day, the country mouse invited the town mouse to have
dinner with him and served him the best food. He laid the table just

the sun and enjoyed the fresh air of the countryside. But the town
mouse said that the food was not tasty at all and invited the country
mouse to his house.

windows and an old creaky door. The roof had holes in it and

The Lacons lived in Southern Greece. They were very brave and

too. They lived very simple lives, didn’t think about comfort and
hated making long speeches. They were never too talkative. They

King of all Greece. His name was Philip, King of Macedonia.
The people of Laconia knew he was not clever and brave enough
to become their king. But he had a great army and soon he was
master of all Greece. Laconia, however, was still free from his rule.
So Philip sent a message to the Lacons. He wrote: “If I win the
battle with your army, I’ ll become your king and your city will be
Some time later Philip got an answer. It was: “If” .

A popular Australian folk song tells us about a very interesting
and unusual bird — the kookaburra, which lives in eucalyptus trees
and can imitate the human laugh. This bird is one of the famous
mockingbirds of Australia. But the ‘ prince of the mockingbirds’ is
definitely the lyrebird.
If you leave the hot and dry Australian desert, go deep into
the dark and wet forests of Victoria, you’ ll hear the calls of
kookaburra, then of a black cockatoo, then — of a dozen other
birds, and finally — something like coughs, wheezes, sneezes and
whistles. Were actually a dozen birds in the jungle? No, just one.
The world’s greatest mimic: a lyrebird. Dr. L. H. Smith, an expert
on the lyrebird says that one bird he watched imitated 27 different
sounds, including other birds, koalas, and even railroad trains!

(2 )a) Read the travel tips below. Match them with the headings.
A . Beach holiday C. City Sightseeing Holiday
B. African safari D. An Active Outdoor Holiday
1) Bring water and windproof trousers, T-shirts which are
breathable, hiking shoes and boots. Scarves and hats — even in
summer — make a big difference in comfort when you get higher.
Hiking socks are a must — they will keep your feet dry. You won’t
need formal clothes, but you should bring a flashlight with plenty
of batteries.
2) Get a swimsuit and make sure you buy more than one.
A waterproof bag would be very convenient. Plastic bags can be
your best friend. Use them to bring food with you, and carry wet
swimsuits and towels on the way home. It may feel good, but the
sun is not your friend. Pack a lot of sunscreen, wear sunglasses
and a hat.
3) Good walking shoes, a pair of jeans, a couple of blouses or
shirts (for men) are a must. To cut a long story short, if you don’t
want to lose it, don’t bring it. Also, don’t pack a monster suitcase —
it will be very difficult to get onto a bus.
4) If you wear white and bright, it will distract animals. If you
wear black and blue, it will attract insects. Wear olive, green and
khaki. Don’t forget a small first-aid kit. Insect repellant and malaria
medication should be on your list. Pack an extra toothbrush. Bring
a pair of good binoculars. Buy an extra digital camera card — you
don’t want to run out of space when you’re ready to take that close-
up of a lion.

c) Write the safety tips below in two groups: Travel safety and
Transport safety.
1) Keep your travel plans to yourself.
2) Try not to travel at night.
3) A t the airport, watch for your suitcase. Don’t hang back and
wait for the people to disappear — you might find that your bag
has disappeared with one of them.
4) Don’t go into dangerous areas of the cities you visit, especially
at night.
5) Don’ t share taxis with strangers.
6) Ask your hotel manager for advice on ‘ safe’ versus ‘ unsafe’
local areas.
7) If you see that in the city street there are many children and
women, it means the area is safe for families.
8) Don’t change money at airports, as you might be watched.
9) Keep a photocopy of your passport and all other important
documents in a safe place.
10) Consult with your hotel manager or tourist information
centre about the public transport in your area. Make sure you know
what official taxi cabs look like.
11) Use cash machines during the day, when there are people
12) If you are attacked in the street, don’t fight back. It is better
to lose a few dollars and a wrist watch than get hurt.

(D Read about comics. Mark the statements below T (true) or F (false).

The word ‘ comics’ makes us think that we are going to read
something funny. Not necessarily so. This word is used to describe
successions of pictures with some text attached to them. They can
be both funny and serious.
Many countries have taken their words for comics from English,
including Russian (комиксы) and German.
W e say ‘ comics is’ when we speak about a type of art, and
‘comics are’ when we speak about individual examples — comic
strips and comic books. Comic strips are generally short comics
that usually appear in newspapers. Comic magazines and books are
very different in different countries. Comic books can be mostly
found in the USA. They are thin and usually published in colour.
European and Japanese comics are mostly magazines — monthly
and weekly in Europe, and usually black-and-white and weekly
in Japan. Japanese comic magazines typically run to hundreds of
Some say that the history of comics began 20,000 years ago when
prehistoric artists drew symbols, animals and people in a cave in
what is now modern France. Birds, bears, lions, cattle, bison and
hunters look at you from the walls of the cave.
By the m id-20th century, comics had become popular in the
United States, France and Belgium, and Japan. American comics
appeared in newspapers first as comic strips and superhero comic
books later followed. They were mostly black-and-white. Superman
(1938) began the Golden Age of Comic Books. Japanese comics
and cartoons (manga) were born as early as the 12th century. The
European, American and Japanese comics traditions have gone
their own ways.
Text appears in comics in captions, speech balloons and sound
effects. Captions tell us about the place and time, present characters’
conversations and thoughts. Speech balloons actually turn an image
into comics. Sound effects can include animal noises like ‘miaow’
or ‘chirp’ . They are different in different languages. In England,
for example, the sound of the clock may be ‘tick-tock’ , ‘ katchin-
katchin’ in Japan and ‘ tik -tik ’ in India. Some other English-
language examples include ‘ hiccup’ , ‘ zoom’ , ‘bang’ , ‘beep’ , ‘ moo’
and others.
Now webcomics are popular all over the world. They can be
found on the Internet. Film studios often use comics for making
films. Today not only comic fans know 300, Jurassic Park, Iron
M an, Spider-Man, Hulk, The M en in Black, Avengers, Batman,
Catwoman, Superman, X -M en , The X-Files, etc.

Sentences with conditional clauses (conditional 0) — сложно­

подчиненные предложения с условными придаточными пред­
ложениями (нулевого типа)
Условие, содержащееся в условном придаточном предложении,
рассматривается говорящим как реально предполагаемый
факт, относящийся к настоящему или прошедшему времени.
Сказуемые главного и придаточного предложений выражаются
глаголами в форме изъявительного наклонения:
I f the weather is nice, we go for a walk. — Если погода хорошая,
мы ходим на прогулку.
I f the weather was nice, we went for a walk. — Если погода была
хорошая, мы ходили на прогулку.
Sentences with time clauses — сложноподчиненные пред­
ложения с придаточными времени
Когда мы говорим о будущем, в главном предложении
сложноподчиненного предложения используется будущее
время. В придаточном предложении для выражения будущего
времени за союзами when, as soon as, after, before, until, till
не используется the Future Simple. Придаточное предложение
относится к будущему времени, но в английском языке исполь­
зуется настоящее простое время (the Present Simple): W hen our
guests arrive, we’ ll eat. ^4s soon as I have some news, I ’ll phone you.
I ’ ll do my work after I have a bath. I ’ll speak to you again before I
leave. W e ’ ll stay here until the rain stops.

conjunction + Present Simple,

will + infinitive (без частицы to) ________

Sentences with conditional clauses (conditional I) — сложно­

подчиненные предложения с условными придаточными пред­
ложениями (первого типа)
Сложноподчиненное предложение первого типа с придаточным
условия может использоваться для выражения возможных
условий и вероятных результатов в будущем:
I f they give те some money, I ’ll buy this book. Y ou ’ll get wet if
you don’ t take an umbrella.
Условие, содержащееся в условном придаточном предложении,
рассматривается говорящим как реально предполагаемый факт,
относящийся к будущему времени:
I f the weather is nice, we’ll g o for a walk. — Если погода будет
хорошая, мы пойдем на прогулку.
Как в придаточных предложениях времени, так и в при­
даточных предложениях условия для выражения будущего
времени используется не будущее, а настоящее время.

if + Present Simple,
________ will + infinitive (без частицы to) ________

Условное придаточное предложение может стоять либо перед,

либо после главного предложения. Если условное придаточное
предложение стоит перед главным предложением, то после него
ставится запятая:
I ’ ll pass ту exam s if I w ork hard. I f I work hard, I ’ ll pass my
ВНИМАНИЕ! I f означает возможность того, что что-то прои­
зойдет; when выражает то, что, по мнению говорящего, должно
обязательно произойти:
If I find your book, I ’ll send it to you. — Если я найду вашу
книгу, я вышлю ее вам.
W hen I get home, Г11 have a bath. — Когда я приду домой,
я приму ванну.

U n it 9: M o d a ls —
М о д ал ь н ы е глаголы
Модальный глагол сап используется для настоящего времени,
could — для прошедшего. Эти модальные глаголы употребляются
для выражения возможности или способности совершения
действия (в значении «мочь», «уметь»). Для выражения такого
же значения в будущем используется глагол to be able to:
She couldn’t speak English when she was ten. Now she can speak
English and French. I f she works hard, she’ll be able to speak
more than two languages in the future.

Сочетание to be able + инфинитив с частицей to является
синонимом модального глагола сап (см. пункт I) для выражения
возможности или способности совершения действия во всех
ВНИМАНИЕ! Глаголы сап и could не требуют вспомогательных
глаголов при образовании отрицательных и вопросительных
форм. Они употребляются без частицы to. Глагол to be able
требует использования частицы to и вспомогательных глаголов
при образовании отрицательных и вопросительных форм.

Модальный глагол m ust употребляется:
1. Для выражения долженствования, необходимости прои
вести действие в настоящем или будущем:
I must go.— Я должен идти.
2.Для выражения запрещения в отрицательном предложении:
You mustn’t do it. — Нельзя этого делать.

3. Для обозначения настоятельного совета, рекомендации:
You must come and see my new flat. — Ты должен прийти
посмотреть мою новую квартиру.
Глагол must не употребляется с частицей to, а также не
используется в прошедшем времени. Вместо него используется
had to (глагол have to в форме прошедшего времени).
Модальный глагол have (to) употребляется в сочетании
с инфинитивом с частицей to для выражения необходимости
совершить действие в силу определенных обстоятельств.
В этом случае have (to) соответствует русскому «приходится,
вынужден», а отрицательная форма означает «не обязательно»:
It was very dark and we had to stay at home. — Было очень
темно, и нам пришлось остаться дома.
I don't have to stay here. — М не не нужно здесь оставаться.
Глагол have to требует использования вспомогательных
глаголов (do, does, did) при образовании отрицательных и во­
просительных форм.
Модальный глагол should в основном употребляется для
выражения совета, рекомендации:
You should see a doctor. — Вам следует показаться врачу.
Should является самодостаточным модальным глаголом
и не нуждается во вспомогательных глаголах при образовании
отрицательных и вопросительных предложений. Этот глагол
не спрягается по лицам и числам, используется в настоящем,
будущем и прошедшем времени. После should смысловой глагол
употребляется в форме инфинитива без частицы to.
Отличие should от must и have to состоит в том, что совет
или пожелание, выраженное should, не требует обязательного
выполнения (вам «следует» что-то делать, а не вы «обязательно
должны» это сделать).
