Употребление Future Continuous Tense

1. Для выражения длительного действия, которое начнется до определенного момента в будущем и всё еще будет совершаться в этот момент. Момент совершения действия может быть указан:

a) обозначениями времени, такими как at five o’clock в пять часов, at noon в полдень, at midnight в полночь, at that moment в этот момент и т.п.:

e.g. I will still be working at six o’clock. - Я еще буду работать в шесть часов.

b) другим будущим действием, выраженным глаголом в Present Simple в придаточном предложении времени и условия:

e.g. When I come back, they will be having supper. - Когда я вернусь, они будут ужинать.

2. Для выражения длительного действия, которое будет совершаться в определенном отрезке времени в будущем, хотя и не обязательно непрерывно в течении всего этого отрезка:

e.g. I will be preparing for my examination in May. - Я буду готовиться к экзамену в мае.

Future Continuous употребляется иногда наряду с Future Simple с таким обозначением времени, как all day long весь день, all day tomorrow завтра весь день, all the time всё время, the whole evening весь вечер, from five till six с пяти до шести и т.п. При употреблении Future Continuous говорящий изображает действие как процесс, а при употреблении Future Indefinite он лишь констатирует факт совершения действия:

e.g. He will be reading the whole evening. - He will read the whole evening. - Он будет читать весь вечер.

3. Future Continuous употребляется также для выражения действия недлительного характера. В этом значении Future Continuous употребляется (вместо Future Simple), когда выражается намерение совершить действие или когда речь идет о заранее намеченном действии. В этом случае Future Continuous переводятся на русский язык будущим временем как глагола несовершенного, так и совершенного вида:

e.g. He will be meeting us at the station. - Он будет встречать (встретит) нас на вокзале.

THE CONJUNCTION

(Союз)

Союзами называются служебные слова, которые употребляются для соединения членов предложения и предложений. Они не выполняют самостоятельной функции в предложениях и поэтому не являются членами предложения.

По своей функции речи союзы делятся на сочинительные и подчинительные. 1. Сочинительные союзы соединяют однородные члены предложения, а также независимые друг от друга предложения:

e.g. I have received a letter and a telegram. - Я получил письмо и телеграмму.

Go at once or you will miss your train. - Идите немедленно, иначе вы не поспеете на поезд.

2. Подчинительные союзы соединяют придаточные предложения с главным:

e.g. I can’t do it now because I am very busy. - Я не могу делать это сейчас, потому что я очень занят.

По своей форме союзы в английском языке делятся на простые и составные.

1. Простые союзы: and и, а, but но, if если, that что и др.

2. Составные союзы (сочетания, выполняющие функцию союзов): as well as так же как, so that, in order that чтобы, для того чтобы, as soon as только и др.

Некоторые составные союзы являются двойными, так как распадаются на две части: both…and как …так и, not only …but also не только …но и, either …or или…или, neither…nor ни…ни, hardly (scarcely) …when едва только … как, no sooner … than как только, едва только…как, whether…or ли …или.

Additional task

I. Read the text and find answers to the following ques­tions:

1) In which country is this city located?

2) What is the population of the city?

3) Who was the founder of the city?

Wellington

Wellington is the capital of New Zealand. New Zealand is a land of national parks and natural reserves. It is also known for its hilly terrain. It takes one of the first places in sheep-breeding.

The population of Wellington is about 180,000. The city is famous for its beautiful scenery with mountains, green hill­sides, parks, and forests. Mountain hills are so near to the city that some of the streets and roads run up and down them. On one of the hills there is a botanical garden - a very popular place among the public. Wellington is a culturally di­verse city. It is home to the Maori tribe - the native tribe to New Zealand.

Wellington was chosen in 1839 because of its central location and suitable harbor. It is a very sunny city: it gets more sunshine than Melbourne in Australia. The Cook Strait, where Wellington is situated, is known for b winds. As a result, Wellington is sometimes called "Windy City". The city was named in honor of Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington. Arthur Wellesley was a victor of the Battle of Waterloo. His title comes from the town of Wellington in the county of Somerset, England. Wellington became the capital of New Zealand in 1865. There are some challenges that the city is facing: it is located in the seismic zone and there is a lack of free spaces. But scientists found the way out: high-storey buildings are built with the use of special foundations.

THE ENGLISH IANGUACE

English is spoken practically all over the world. It is spo­ken as the mother tongue in Great Britain, the United States of America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. A lot of peo­ple speak English in China, Japan, India, Africa and other countries. It is one of 6 official languages of the United Nations. It is studied as a foreign language in many schools.

England's history helps to understand the present condition of English. Many English words were borrowed from the language of Angles and Saxons. Hundreds of French words came into English. These French words didn't crowd out corresponding Anglo-Saxon words. There exist «act» and «deed», «beautiful» and «pretty», «form» and «shape».

Many new words were brought by traders and travelers. These words came from all parts of the world: «umbrella» - from Italian, «skates» - from Dutch, «tea» - from Chinese, «cigar» - from Spanish.

Some words came into English directly from Latin, which was the language of the church and the universities in the Middle Ages.

Some of the English words of today are derivatives. One way of creating new words is to put together two or more older English words. For example, the words «railway», «football», «newspaper» are made in this way.

Many of the new English words - especially new scientific ones - have been made from Latin and, Greek words instead of English ones. «Telephone» for instance, was made from Creek words «far» and «talk».

mother tongue – родной язык

United Nations – Организация Объединённых Наций

It’s very good when you hear: “Yes, I do”, and start talking. People of different countries and nations have to get along well with the progress in the world trade and technology as well as with each other.

I study English, because I want to read English books of great writers in the original. I want to communicate with people from different countries; I want to understand their culture and traditions. I like to travel. Speaking English I can travel everywhere, because more then 1 billion people speak English.

How do I learn English? First of all I read a lot. There is always an English book on my desk. I’m trying to learn few new words every day. To remember words better I put them into groups. For example: believe – believer – belief – disbelieve. I listen to songs in English and try to recognize the words. I have some tapes and video-tapes in English. I like to watch different satellite TV programs in English.

EDUCATION IN BRITAIN

In England and Wales compulsory school begins at the age of five, but before that age children can go to a nursery school, also called play school. School is compulsory till the children are 16 years old.

In Primary School and First School children learn to read and write and the basis of arithmetic. In the higher classes of Primary School (or in Middle School) children learn geogra­phy, history, religion and, in some schools, a foreign language. Then children go to the Secondary School.

When students are 16 years old they may take an exam in various subjects in order to have a qualification. These quali­fications can be either G.C.S.E. (General Certificate of Sec­ondary Education) or «O level» (Ordinary level). After that students can either leave school and start working or contin­ue their studies in the same school as before. If they continue, when they are 18, they have to take further examinations which are necessary for getting into university or college.

Some parents choose private schools for their children. They are very expensive but considered to provide a better education and good job opportunities.

In England there are 47 universities, including the Open University which teaches via TV and radio, about 400 colleges and institutes of higher education. The oldest universities in England are Oxford and Cambridge. Generally, universities award two kinds of degrees: the Bachelor's degree and the Master's degree.
