Ход урока
1. Good morning, boys and girls! I’m glad to see you. How are things today? Is there
anything to boast of or to complain about? (Pupils answer the questions).
I hope you’ll enjoy our lesson. We are going to talk about the weather in different mountains and make a virtual trip to some famous mountains.
2. English people usually start their conversation talking about the weather. What’s
the weather like today? Do you like such kind of weather? Is it favourable for
travelling? (Pupils describe the weather: "It’s cloudy today. I think it’s going to
rain.”; "As for me, I don’t like such kind of weather. I prefer when it’s sunny and
hot.”; "In my opinion, the weather is not good enough for travelling”)
3. Today we’ll review the expressions which are used to describe the weather and learn some new ones. It is necessary for our virtual trip.
a) Look at the screen and match the sentences with the pictures. (Slide 2).
b) Now let’s read the expressions and give them definitions. Slide 3 will help you.
c) Well, can you describe the weather in the pictures choosing the right sentences. (Slides 4, 5, 6)
4. The next thing we are going to do is listening to the cassette. First of all, open your
Student books at page 97. You can find photos of three mountains there. Try to
remember their names, repeat, please!
Caucasus Mountains Table Mountain Ben Nevis
We shall listen to the cassette twice. Then you will say which mountain is
There is a mountain right behind my house. In the summer it’s absolutely boiling, with temperatures of up to 40 degrees, so I always go out in the evening when it’s cooler. The only problem is that there are sometimes storms with thunder and lightning. The spring is beautiful because everything is green and there are lots of flowers. The autumn is even better with the leaves turning colour, though the weather is quite changeable – a day can begin sunny and it can rain later. In the winter, the mountain is often covered with snow and it’s sometimes freezing, with temperatures below zero in the day and with frost at night (up to – 15 degrees). From the mountains, you can see the sea and the city below. It’s a lovely place. (Table Mountain)
5. Dear boys and girls! Have you ever been to the mountains? Where did you go? What did you do there? What was the weather like?
Today I want to invite you to a virtual travelling around the world’s mountains!
Look at the screen! Which one would you like to choose:
Uluru, the Himalayas, the Alps or Mountain Cook? (Slide 8)
(Pupils choose one of the four and on the screen appears the piece of information about one or another mountain)
6. Dear students! On the desks you can find a piece of paper with a chart. You should complete it during our virtual trip.
Complete the chart with the information about the mountains
Mountains Location

Pupils look at the screen, get the necessary information and complete the chart. Then, the teacher asks them to describe the mountains using the completed charts. (Slides 9-12)
