  1. TASK 26. Creative writing.

  2. Imagine that you are a pilot who has just made a solo flight around the world. Write a two-page article to a youth magazine about what you have seen from the sky. Follow the recommendations below on how to write magazine articles.

  3. Recommendations

  1. Title: Articles usually have a title. The title should be informative (give the reader an idea of the subject) and attractive (make the reader want to read the article).

  2. Opening: The start of the article should be linked to the title, introduce the topic and engage the reader. Often, an article starts with a question which introduces the topic which will be discussed in the article.

  3. Paragraphs: Should be clearly defined, not too long and clearly linked.

  4. Ending: Should conclude the article.

  5. Register or Style: Could be light or serious (but should be consistent), depending on who the target reader is. May use some rhetorical questions e.g. Can you imagine our Earth from the bird's-eye perspective?

  6. Range of language: Probably, some use of descriptive language and language of opinion. Always give some examples.

  1. TASK 27. Study the information about the administrative division of the UK given below.

  2. Step 1. Read through some information about the British Counties. Learn at least 10 names of the British Counties by heart. Be sure you know how they are pronounced.

  3. There have been a number of different classifications of counties within the United Kingdom over the last several decades. There have been different administrative counties, ceremonial counties, traditional counties and more recently the European Union is carving the UK up into European 'regions'. Which 'county' a town is in depends on which definition of county you are using and in which context. Some of the counties in this list no longer exist as administrative counties [in the context of local government] although they are frequently referred to as common geographical boundaries and in terms of catchment areas for services (микрорайон, обслуживаемый больницей, школой) like fire brigades and policing.
