Как же сохранить формат ЕГЭ, если тематика у занятия рождественская?

Our royal family has enjoyed themselves a lot and now the Queen Elizabeth II should deliver a speech for her dearest and nearest, the British and the whole world.

Imagine that you are

the Queen of the UK.Your fist task is to read these words aloud without mistakes and then to make 7 sentences using these words from the Queen’s speech for reading aloud. After that you give your speech to the opposite team. Then we will compare your versions of speech with its original one.

The words and the link.

You are given 1,5 minutes to look through your opponent’s text and then one by one read aloud mentioning all pauses, intonation and voiced or voiceless consonants.


You have been the Queen of the UK and now let’s check what the original version is. While you listen to the Queen’s Christmas speech, each person of your teams should do a task with “True”, “False”, “Not stated” statements.

Вы услышите речь королевы Елизаветы IIпо случаю Рождества. Определите, какие из утверждений соответствуют содержанию текста (1 – True), какие не соответствуют (2- False) и о чем в тексте не сказано (3- Notstated). Занесите номер выбранного Вами варианта ответа в таблицу. Вы услышите запись дважды.

  2. Therewerefew victims during the First World War in Britain.
  3. The Queen Elizabeth mentioned that she had been proud of her grandsons’ success.
  4. The quantity of countries in the Commonwealth has been increased since 1948.
  5. The Queen’s life was full of celebrations and expectations this year.
  6. The Queen’s family and friends are not the things that stay the same.
  7. The part of the Queen’s wisdom is knowledge that a human can act violently and also have a great ability to do good things.

After that you exchange your answers with the opposite team. The team, which has got more right answers, chooses any false statement and asks the opposite team about the arguments from the text.

Деятельность студентов:

The students have a list of some new words. They read them. The students read aloud words one by one in teams trying not to make mistakes.

Besides, they make their own short speech for the opposite team.

The example:

I am going to thank all services for their devoted work. Our year was rather busy. We had weddings, births and anniversaries. All events were remarkable. Of course, there were sorrows and reasons to grieve. However, we have coped with all these problems. Despite propensity for good and capacity for evil we should hope and have power of faith.

The opposite team has a list with criteria from State exam. They should give points for a good reading of the speech. The teams have 1.5 minute to prepare. They read a text of the opposite team one by one.

The teams are given two puzzles of the personal letter.


The students do a task with “True”, “False”, “Not stated” statements. Then they exchange their answers and the winning team asks about the arguments for the false statements.

The teams are given puzzles again.
