Методическая записка

Видеокурсы являются необходимым компонентом в обучении


иностранному языку. Они помогают мотивации студентов и обеспечивают
получение как лингвистических, так и экстралингвистических знаний. Кроме
того, визуальный ряд облегчает понимание и закрепление вербального
материала.
Данное пособие разработано для студентов языковых факультетов на
основе художественного фильма «Гордость и предубеждение». Этот фильм
является одним из самых популярных в жанре мелодрамы у разных поколений.
Однако основным в выборе данной редакции стало то, что это английская
экранизация английского литературного произведения, снятая с британскими
актёрами, говорящими на британском варианте английского языка. Кроме
этого, фильм прекрасно передаёт дух эпохи, наполнен игрой слов, виртуозными
намеками, способными передавать всё многообразие человеческих отношений
в обществе, где существует жёсткий этикет по отношению к любому
выражению чувств.
Пособие состоит из 24 эпизодов, каждый из которых содержит
стандартный набор упражнений. Упражнения условно можно разделить на
задания во время просмотра и после. Первые представляют собой собственно
упражнения по тексту фильма и направлены на развитие внимания и
способностей к аудированию. Вторые направлены на развитие навыков беседы
по заданной тематике. Они содержат вопросы по фильму и темы для
обсуждения. Темы для обсуждения хотя и связаны с сюжетом фильма, имеют
достаточно общий характер, поэтому могут использоваться и до просмотра.
Основной целью пособия является обучение аудированию на иностранном
языке, а так же повышение лингвокультурной компетенции студентов
языкового факультета.

you. But I must be allowed to defend myself against the charges laid at my door. In
particular those relating to Mr Wickham, which is true, would indeed be________,

his connection with my family. Mr Wickham is the son of a very ________man, who
had the management of our family estates. My own father was fond of him and held
him in high esteem. We played together as boys. After his father’s early death, my
father ________him at school and afterwards at Cambridge, and hoped he would
make the church his profession. But by then George Wickham’s habits were as
_________as his manners were engaging. My own excellent father died five years
ago. And his attachment to Mr Wickham was to the last_________, that he desired
that a valuable family living might be his as soon as it was vacant Mr Wickham
declined any interest in the church as a career, but___________, and was granted, the

him’.
Wickham – I found that time or near I’d better not meet with Mr Darcy. Scenes
might arise, unpleasant to more than myself.
Darcy – ‘The other charge leveled of me is that ___________of the sentiments of
either party, I detached Mr Bingley from your sister. I have no wish to deny this, nor
can I _________myself for any of my actions in this matter. I had not long been in
Hertfordshire before I saw that Bingley admired your sister, but it was not until the
dance at Netherfield that I suspected a serious__________. His partiality was clear,
but though she received his attentions with pleasure, I did not detect any
_________of peculiar regard. The serenity of her countenance convinced me that her

made so light of it as you do now.
Lizzy – Indeed, I could not. I was very uncomfortable. Till that moment I never knew
