Some British and other English speaking countries historical, literary, cultural , etc material

While studying not at a humanitarian department students miss a lot humanitarian subjects or at least some related information. Consequently, the Module about the history, culture, literature, etc of the English speaking countries tries to provide some guidelines for obtaining general and interesting information about such aspects of English life, in order to make the understanding of the language better and add to the picture of the English speaking world some strokes to help the students deal with this language and get to know inseparable parts of it though cultural and other fields of life.

The best way is to try to share some interesting information about English-speaking counties with others: your friends, groupmates, teachers and others. Here I would like to provide several examples of works prepared by various students, who tried to find and tell additional facts about English-speaking country studies. TASK 1. Have a look at these examples and try to retell the information students tried to share providing their way of looking at these aspects. TASK 2. After completing this task create something on your own covering the same topics and make a presentation in class in order for others to see how you cover the same topic in your personal way.

GREAT CANYON

THEODORE ROOSEVELT

"Leave it as it is. The ages have been at work on it, and man can only mar it. What you can do is to keep it for your children, your children's children, and for all who come after you, as one of the great sights which every American should see."
