- The song Moscow Suburb Nights is always performed before the program:
Not a rustling leaf not a bird in flight
In the sleepy groove until dawn.
How I love these nights, Moscow suburb nights
The caress of the walking sun.
The calm riling stream seems to ebb and flow
Like a silver web of moon light,
In my heart I hear singing come and go
On this wonderful summer night.
Why this downcast look? Does the rising day
Bring us near the hour when we part?
It’s as hard to keep as to give away
All the presses upon my heart.
- Host 1: Hello my dear friends! How are you getting on? I think everything is excellent! My name is…I am a host of this program. Let’s begin our popular program “Tell me about you country”. (Саша)
- Host 2: Our topic today is “My favorite Russian holidays”. We have invited a lot of interesting guests. They are going to tell us about famous Russian holidays. Listen to our history expert. (Гриша)
- History expert: There are many holidays in our country. They are: New Year’s Day, Christmas, Women’s Day, Victory Day, May Day and others. I like New Year’s Day. It is my favorite holiday. The 1st of January is a winter holiday and now it is the first day of the year. Peter the First changed the Russian calendar in 1699. He made 31st of December, 1699 the last day of the year. The 1st of January 1700 became New Year’s Day.(Оксана)

You see my grandfather and I were great friends. During the Great Patriotic war my grandfather was an officer of the Soviet Army. He fought many heroic battles and marched as far as Berlin. (Надя)
- Host 1: Did he go to Red Square on May 9? Did he meet his co-troopers? (Саша)
- Russian writer: Yes he did. And one day he invited them to stay at our house. And I was lucky surprised as his co-troopers appeared to be not gloomy old men but good natured guy fellows. I must say that my grandfather helped me to understand this holiday. (Надя)
- Host 2: Thanks a lot for your expressive story. And now listen to …. He is our famous Russian film producer! (Гриша)
- Russian film producer: There are many holidays and traditions in Russia. One of them is Maslenitsa. This holiday lasts for a week. Russian people celebrate it at the end of February or at the beginning of March. They say “good-bye” to winter on this holiday. During “Maslenitsa Week” we always cook pancakes. It is a tradition to cook pancakes and to eat them with fish, sour cream, caviar, honey, sugar, butter. Our family likes to invite our friends to come to see us. We buy cakes, cook pancakes. In my opinion it is interesting to eat pancakes and to talk. Usually this holiday is celebrated in our parks. People prepare fires and burn straw scarecrows of winter! (Лена)

They like this holidays very much because they can meet there friends or simply have a good time at home. Many young people celebrate April fool’s Day in Russia. It is a day for fun.

Teacher: Our lesson is coming to an end. But I like to remind you that this year we celebrate the 65th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic war. I’d like to recite a poem by R. Mackey which is called
You have no enemies? you say
Alas, my friend, the boast is poor.
He who has mingled on the fray
Of duty that the brave endure
Must have made foes. If you have none –
Small is the work that you have done.
You’ve hit no traitor on the hip,
You’ve dashed no cup from perjured lip.
You’ve never turned the wrong to right,
You’ve been a coward in the fight.
Ты говоришь, что не нажил врагов.
Увы, мой друг, геройства в этом мало.
Тому, кто смело в бой вступить готов,
Врагов своих бояться не пристало.
И грош цена тому, чего достиг
Ты, от врагов себя оберегая.
Ты прятался за спинами других,
Побед великих за собой не зная.
И не клеймил изменника, лгуна,
К предательству и подлости терпимый.
Твоя беда, а может и вина
В том, что ты трус и трус непроходимый.
Remember the enemies and don’t forget the heroes of the Great Patriotic war. Next lesson we’ll listen to recording of our program and you will give marks to yourselves according to the criterion list. Thank you. Good-bye.
