Summary of the year

Hello, I’m Hasmik. I’m in the 9th grade. We have English lessons thrice a week. During the classes we do a lot of exercises, discussions, learn new words, read texts and write essays, do translations and listenings.

This year I learned a lot of new words and began to understand more clearly in English. It has become easier for me to translate large texts. We learned a lot of grammar topics: do and make, direct and indirect speech, passive voice, active and passive sentences, non-continuous verbs, common phrases, as or than. I think my English has improved markedly.

I participated in all projects during which I learned a lot, not only for English. For me, all the projects («Lets Translate!», «Me and my Armenia») were very interesting. During the projects, there was nothing complicated for me.

I really want the classes to be the same from September, because during the quarantine I started to get depressed and I don’t want this to happen again in a few months. I really like to stay home, but still, I am not pleasant about this situation.

The Fairy Queen had two twin daughters. The girls looked like two drops of water, but had different hair colors. Millie, golden-haired, was calm and balanced, and Gwendolyn, red-haired, extremely mischievous. For the fourteen-year-old daughters, the fairy queen decided to have a big ball in their honor. “After the ball, you can choose your magic power,” she said. “It’s just fantastic, but why wait so long?” Gwendolyn asked. Mother explained that the right choice can only be made when you are ready for it. The Great Magic Book says that this happens exactly on the day when the fairies turn fourteen. So the long-awaited holiday has come. The queen chose a cozy clearing for the ball near the pond and appointed two elves to prepare everything. First, they decorated a magical clearing with daffodils and cornflowers, decorated wooden tables with large leaves and cupped flowers, laid fruit in them. Then they began to assemble the choir. Frogs were supposed to sing in low voices. Each of them was placed on a separate sheet of water lilies on the water. The party of high voices was entrusted with the performance of songbirds — darkness flew over them. When evening came, the queen solemnly announced the opening of the initiation ceremony in the fairies and brought her daughters. First she turned to Millie.

«Soon you will become a real fairy, tell me what kind of power you want to get?»

«Mommy, I want to rule the sun. Then I can become the Fairy of Clear Day. I really like sunny weather, and nothing in the world pleases me like a cloudless sky. In addition, the sun warms the earth, and this is useful for it.»

Mother approved her daughter’s choice and joyfully gave her royal consent. Then she turned to the mischievous Gwendolyn: «My daughter, now I want to hear your answer, which element did you choose for yourself?»

“I want to control the rain. You see, Mom, only when it rains, my hair is perfectly fit and even a little curly. I really like it. And when it rains, I willingly run through the puddles. But this is all empty, because everyone knows that the earth needs rain to water it. That is why I want to become the Fairy of the Rain.»

The queen was very pleased with the response of her second daughter. She called the elf, and he brought the newly-made fairies wands and luxurious dresses. One put on a golden dress, the color of the sun, and the second — blue, the color of the storm. From now on, Millie was called the Fairy of the Sun, and Gwendolyn was called the Fairy of the Rain. And then the fun began. At first, a calm and affectionate Millie woke up.

She opened the window, waved her wand and said: “May this day be sunny!” And the sun warmed so that Gwendolyn woke up from the heat. The mischievous fairy sharply opened its window wide and, in order to tease her sister, exclaimed: “Let it rain!” Of course, clouds immediately appeared in the sky and it began to rain. Millie in response angrily wrinkled her brows, raised her wand and exclaimed: “Sun, come on!”. The sun immediately peeped out from behind the clouds and it became clear. Gwendolyn stomped her foot in exasperation and imperiously ordered: “Rain, hail, thunder immediately to work!” Millie, in turn, caused a terrible drought. And so it went on all day.

The poor nature was bewildered and did not have time to carry out the orders of two young fairies. Snails crawled out of shells during the rain and quickly hid, only the sun peeking out. So the frogs either plunged into puddles, then again jumped out of them. The swallows were generally baffled and did not know how to fly them: low, in the rain, high, in the heat. Suddenly, rain fell in the sun and a rainbow appeared. Only then did the little stubborn fairies realize that their mother, the fairy queen, was angry — that was her sign. The girls calmed down and sat at the negotiating table. They decided that power should be shared. In autumn and spring there is more rainy weather, less in summer and winter. Since then, everything has been harmonious in nature. Well, almost like that …And when you suddenly see that a rainbow appeared in the sky after the rain you know, this is the fairy queen trying to reconcile her restless daughters. Here is a story.

Miss Green was very fat. She weighed 100 kilos, and she was getting heavier every month, so she went to see her doctor.

Miss Green came again two weeks later, but she wasn’t thinner: she was fatter. The doctor was surprised and said, ‘Are you eating the things on page 11 of the small book?’

‘Yes, doctor,’ she answered.

«Miss Green,» said the doctor,’why do you eat potatoes and bread? They are not part of your die’.

‘Now, has anybody got any questions?’ the teacher asked.

‘How old is the castle, sir?’ Dave asked.

‘It’s about seven hundred years old, Dave,’ the teacher answered.

‘What’s the name of the castle, sir?’ another boy asked.

‘Conway Castle,’ the teacher said.

Ուրբաթ օրը տղաները դպրոց եկան ժամը 9-ին և նստեցին ավտոբուս: Նրանք այցելեցին Քոնվեյի ամրոցը և տուն վերադարձան:

8.Write an essay (շարադրություն) on this topic.

Blog as an educational tool (area). How long have you had your blog? How often do you update your blog? The advantages and disadvantages of using blog as an educational tool?

Studying on a blog was a great idea. The blog is always with us. Wherever we are we can do our homework. And it also gives the opportunity to learn new programs and all that that may be useful to us in the future. So we learn independence and engage in self-development. For almost every lesson, we are looking for some information on the Internet. This gives us many new ideas and opportunities. The only negative on blogs is numbers and calculations, because writing them on a blog is very difficult or even impossible.

Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated predominantly in North America, and it possesses a different meaning in each of the countries where it’s acknowledged. In the United States, Thanksgiving is a federal holiday (meaning all government employees and most private employees are given a day off of work), and always takes places on the Fourth Thursday in November, regardless of the date. The holiday signifies the immense progress made by pilgrims, or some of the first travelers to North America, at Plymouth Plantation circa 1621. It was at this time that the hungry and weary Pilgrims were taught (by Native Americans) how to grow and produce food on North America’s unique terrain. Once they’d grown (and caught) an abundance of food, the Pilgrims were expectedly thankful, and they celebrated alongside the Native Americans who provided them with such valuable assistance. President Abraham Lincoln initiated the contemporary practice of Thanksgiving by calling for a «day of Thanksgiving» during one of his Civil War addresses. In America today, Thanksgiving remains firmly engrained in its historical roots, and is widely considered to be a day for giving thanks for good food, good times, and family. Thanksgiving dinner generally consists of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, gravy, and ample desserts.

  • Question 1:

  • When is Thanksgiving celebrated in the US?

  • Thanksgiving celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November.
  • Question 2:

  • Which event(s) began the tradition of Thanksgiving?

  • In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies.
  • Question 3:

  • Which food(s) are often prepared for Thanksgiving dinner?

  • Thanksgiving dinner often consists of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, gravy, and ample desserts.
  • Question 4:

  • Where is Thanksgiving celebrated?

  • The celebration always takes place on the fourth Thursday of November in the US, and second Monday of October of every year in Canada.
  • Question 5:

  • What is the meaning of Thanksgiving’s federal holiday status?

  • In the United States, Thanksgiving is a federal holiday (meaning all government employees and most private employees are given a day off of work)

1. DO is used when talking about work, jobs or tasks. Note, they do not produce any physical object.

  • Have you done your homework?
  • I have guests visiting tonight so I should start doing the housework now.
  • I wouldn’t like to do that job.

2. DO is used when we refer to activities in general without being specific. In these cases, we normally use words like thing, something, nothing, anything, everything etc.

  • Hurry up! I’ve got things to do!
  • Don’t just stand there – do something!
  • Is there anything I can do to help you?

3. We sometimes use DO to replace a verb when the meaning is clear or obvious. This is more common in informal spoken English:

  • Do I need to do my hair? (do = brush or comb)
  • Have you done the dishes yet? (done = washed)
  • I’ll do the kitchen if you do the lawns (do = clean, do = mow)

Remember Do can also be as an auxiliary verb (for making questions in the present tense — Do you like chocolate?) For more about Do used in this case, see our page about Do vs Does. Here we will be talking about Do as a normal verb.

When do you use MAKE?

Make is for producing, constructing, creating or building something new.

It is also used to indicate the origin of a product or the materials that are used to make something.

  • His wedding ring is made of gold.
  • The house was made of adobe.
  • Wine is made from grapes.
  • The watches were made in Switzerland

We also use Make for producing an action or reaction:

  • Onions make your eyes water.
  • You make me happy.
  • It’s not my fault. My brother made me do it!

You make before certain nouns about plans and decisions:

  • He has made arrangements to finish work early.
  • They’re making plans for the weekend.
  • You need to make a decision right now.

We use Make with nouns about speaking and certain sounds:

  • She made a nice comment about my dress.
  • The baby is asleep so don’t make any noise.
  • Can I use your phone to make a call?
  • Don’t make a promise that you cannot keep.

We use Make with Food, Drink and Meals:

  • made a cake for her birthday.
  • She made a cup of tea.
  • I must go now. I have to make dinner.
Compare Do and Make

A: You have to make a cake for Simon.

B: I’ll do it later.

Notice how in the response the verb DO is used. This is because the meaning is clear and to avoid saying “I’ll make it later.” which could sound repetitive.

Discussion about FOOD

Food is possibly the most universal topic of them all and everyone loves to discuss what they eat. This is also an ideal topic for beginners because the vocabulary is usually pretty simple. You could use questions like:

  • What is your favorite food? Why?

I love everything that smells good, but most of all I love meat and sweets (chocolate too ofcs).

  • What food comes from your country?

From my country comes tolma, lavash, khorovac, spas, kebab, khash etc.

  • How do you feel when you eat food?

When I eat, my world is filled with joy. I feel like a little kid who got the toy he had wanted for a long time.

  • What foods do you dislike? Why?

I don’t like food that smells bad. (exacly for me)

  • Where do you usually get food from?

Most of all I love the homemade food that my mother cooked. But sometimes you buy in stores.
