P1: I want to tell you about the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is one of America’s main tourist attractions. The Colorado River formed the Grand Canyon over millions of years. It’s interesting that there are different kinds of plants and animals on opposite sides of the canyon. Today, the canyon is one mile deep and 200 miles (320 km) long. The canyon looks different at different times of day, and in different seasons and weather.

T: Thank you. It’s very interesting!

P2: Look! This is The Statue of Liberty… The French people gave this statue to the American people in 1886. It is a gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States. You can walk up 354 stairs to get the top of the statue. There is a museum on Liberty Island, at the foot of the statue. The Statue of Liberty is the symbol of freedom.

P4: Oh, it’s so big!

P3: The main sightseeing of Washington is the White House. The White House is a pleasant, white-painted, neoclassical-style house in which the president of the USA lives and works. The building was designed in 1772 by James Hoban. At the beginning of its history the White House was called the Presidents’ House, the President palace and the President Castle. Only in 1901 it got this well-known name– the White House.

P4: A good place to have fun is Disneyland where children and grown-ups can spend some great time. Disneyland Park is a theme park located in California, owned and operated by the Walt Disney and The Walt Disney Company. It was dedicated on July 17, 1955. The park hosted 600 million guests since it opened. It is the second most visited park in the world all the calendar year.

P5: Look at the screen. This is the Niagara Falls. It’s very attractive place to visit in America. The Niagara Falls is the most beautiful in the world. Niagara Falls is between Chicago and New York. The Niagara River rushes from the lake Erie to the lake Ontario over famous Niagara Falls.

The loud sound of falling water can be heard 25 kilometers away from the place.

T: Thank you very much. It’s amazing, I think!

T: Well done! We like your excursion. We’ve got a surprise for you– our traditional national food – chak-chak.
