I. Организационный момент.

Good morning students! I am glad to see you.

The topic of our lesson is – “A HIGH-TECH LIFE.WHAT ARE PROS AND CONS?”. We have been discussing the problem of using differente appliances in our everyday life for some lessons. Now, it is time to speak about your attitude to them if they are pieces of technology you can hardly live without. In the other words which of them are junk (really useless) and which are extremely useful.

II. Фонетическая зарядка.

As you know science is important to most people living in the modern world for a number of reasons. On the one hand, scientists have helped to develop many of the modern tools of war. On the other hand, they have also helped to keep peace through research which has improved people’s life. What most important inventions of the 20th century can you name? Speak one by one.

III. Речевая зарядка.

Do you have some of these pieces of gadgets or machines at home? What are they? Why do you like or dislike to use modern invention in everyday life? Give us some reasons.

Possible answer: (Возможный ответ)

- I think that a TV set is the most important thing in the house. Our family get together in front of it. We can relax and watch TV in the evening.


- Some of the inventions, for example a vacuum cleaner or a washing machine are less important. We do not often wash or clean the house, once or twice a week. And I’m sure we can do without a sewing machine. Nobody in our family can make clothes.
