  1. The London Underground and the Moscow metro

The London Underground is the oldest one in the world. In 1870 there was the opening of the first line. It was like a tube (Tpy6a), that’s why English people call the old lines the Tube, the new lines the Underground.

The London Underground is very long. It’s about 300 kilometers long and it has about 300 stations. Some of them are closed on Sundays. The other stations are closed on Saturdays and Sundays. The price of tickets isn’t low. It depends on the distance. There are comfortable seats in the carriages at the Underground. The walls are white or grey. There are a lot of ads on them.

So the word «Underground» in London shows you where the stations are. When you want to find the metro stations in Moscow you look for the letter «M».

The Moscow metro began its work on the 15th of May, 1935.

There were 13 stations at that time. Now it has more than 190 stations. Our metro is one of the most beautiful, comfortable and the cleanest metro in the world. We are proud of it.

  1. A policeman

I was about sixteen years old when a policewoman visited our school. She told us interesting stories about the policemen’s job, so I decided to become a policeman. At that time I lived in a small town in the South West of England and when I arrived in London, I was shocked by the noise and all the traffic.

I began working on a response team. It is a difficult but interesting job to police a large city. Some of my colleagues have police dogs, some ride police horses, others ride police motorbikes. Most British police officers do not carry guns. But there are police officers, who have extra training and carry guns.

You need different skills to be a police officer. It’s necessary to be sociable and responsible. You must believe in the importance of law and order. In tragic situations you must be strong and compassionate.

A policeman is a dangerous job. Good policemen are ready to risk their own lives to help and protect people.

  1. How would you do it?

Once a farmer went to a market. He took three animals with him: a hen, a sheep and a fox. He had to cross a river which was very wide. There was a boat but it was very small. He could not take all his animals with him. He could take only one animal at a time. So he had to cross the river three times. But he knew that he could not leave the fox with the sheep or with the hen because the fox could kill them.

He did not know what to do and went back home. When he came home and told his father about it, his father laughed. «You can do it,» he said, «and I can tell you how.» The father said, «You must take the fox to the opposite bank first. Then you must come back and take the sheep to the opposite bank too. You cannot

leave the sheep with the fox, so you take the fox back with you to the first bank, take the hen with you, but leave the fox. When you bring the hen to the opposite bank, you can come back again to the first bank and take the fox.»

  1. The old musician

It happened in Vienna many years ago. Every evening an old man played the violin in one of the streets. People passed by and put some money into the man’s hat.

One night it was very cold and rainy. The old musician was playing the violin near the door of a restaurant, but the people didn’t stop to listen to him. Nobody gave him any money. He was very tired and hungry and couldn’t play any longer.

Suddenly a young man came up to him and asked, «Why did you stop playing?» The old man answered, «Nobody wants to listen to my music.»

The young man took his violin and began playing. He played so beautifully that very soon there were a lot of people around him. Everybody liked the music and put a lot of money into the old man’s hat.

A cook, who wanted to get a job, came to speak to Mrs. White. She asked her what dishes they liked to have and Mrs. White said they had three meals a day and liked to have ham and eggs for breakfast, vegetable soup and beefsteak for lunch, chicken or fish for dinner.

Then Mrs. White took the cook to the kitchen and showed her the electric cooker, the washing and drying machines, a dish-washer, a microwave and other things.

«It won’t be difficult for you to cook in our house,» she said. «I don’t think so,» answered the cook and began to put on her coat. She was going to leave the house when Mrs. White asked in surprise, «Aren’t you going to stay?»

  1. Shopping hours in Britain

Shopping hours in Britain are changing. A few years ago, shops opened at nine o’clock in the morning and closed at six o’clock in the evening. Some shops also closed for an hour for lunch. On Sundays nothing was open.

But now many shops are open longer hours. Some big shops and many supermarkets never close! If you want some milk or some bread at midnight, you can easily buy it.

It’s very good for people who often work late at night or early in the morning. If someone finishes work at five o’clock in the morning, they can go to the supermarket on their way home and buy some breakfast or a newspaper or anything else they want.

There are people who don’t think it’s good. They say that Sunday is a holiday for all people — who wants to work in a supermarket on a Sunday? But shops are very busy at the weekend and they will work to make people’s life easier.

«How do you do, Doctor?» says the man. «Can you go to a place in the country? It’s not near, but I know you have a car. I can show you the way.» «Of course,» says the doctor. «I am ready. I can go with you now.»

The doctor goes to his garage and takes his car. In five minutes the car is standing in front of the house and the doctor and the man start off. They drive for some time. They must be ten or fifteen kilometers from the city when the man says, «Here we are. This is my home. Thank you very much. Now I want to pay you and you can go back home.»

«But how can I go back? I must see the patient. Where is he?

«There is no patient,» says the man. «Nobody is ill. I live here far from the city and must get home. There are no taxis at this time of the night. But it’s a duty of a doctor to help his patients even at night. So, excuse me. Here is your money. Thank you. Good night.»

  1. Chocolate

We all like chocolate. In fact, the Kit Kat chocolate bar is so popular that the British eat forty seven of them every second! But what exactly is chocolate and where does it come from? And is it good for us or bad for us?

Perhaps you know the history of chocolate. Like the potato, it comes from South America. The Spanish people brought it to Europe as a drink. It was so expensive that only rich people could buy it. The idea of making it into bars came later so it became popular as a sweet only in the 1850s.

Why do we like chocolate so much? Of course, it tastes good, but there are other reasons. There is something in chocolate which makes us happy. And it gives us a lot of energy. But it’s also so rich in calories that you can put on weight if you eat it all the time.

Is it good or bad for us? Well, some scientists say that chocolate is very healthy, that it isn’t bad for your heart or your skin and that’s it even good for your teeth. Other people think that you shouldn’t eat it at all.

The truth is somewhere in the middle. You shouldn’t eat chocolate all the time but it’s too tasty to say no!

  1. The Queen’s day

It’s really a busy job to be Queen. Elizabeth II, the Queen of England, gets up early and begins the day by looking through the newspapers. Then she reads letters from the public (she gets more than 1,000 each week), and tries to answer them all. The Queen has daily meetings with her Private Secretary who helps her with her paperwork, and lots of meetings with ambassadors, lawyers (new judges), and church people.

In the afternoon Elizabeth II often goes out on public meetings — she gets thousands of invitations each year. She opens new hospitals, bridges and factories.

Being Queen is not a 9 to 5 job, and Elizabeth II has to work from early in the morning until late at night. And people watch her all the time.

Of course, she has some free time, and some private life, but less than most people.

In her free time Elizabeth II enjoys horse racing, fishing, and walking in the countryside. She also enjoys photography and likes taking photos on her travels. In 50 years the Queen has been on 251 official visits to 128 different countries.

Amy made many other flights. In 1931 she flew to Japan and Siberia and in 1936 she had a flight from London to Cape Town in South Africa.

She made some of the flights alone and some with another famous pilot called Jim Mollison. In August 1932 Amy married Jim arid in 1933 they flew from Britain to the United States of America.

  1. Safari parks

A safari park is like a large zoo, where the animals live in natural conditions . There are several safari parks, in Britain and they are very popular places for visit. One of the most famous is at Windsor, which is close to London airport.

You can visit some parts of the safari park on foot. Here you can see the animals that are not dangerous: giraffes, zebras, camels and antelopes. The animals walk around as if they were in Africa.

Safari parks also have lions, tigers, leopards and other dangerous animals. They cannot live with the other animals, because they would eat them. They would also eat the visitors, so they have to drive through the parts where these animals live. You must not open your windows and you must not get out of the car. It is not a good idea to take a new car into this part of the park, because the monkeys climb on the cars. They can break or spoil them. Safari parks are much better than zoos, because the animals do not have to live in small cages.

  1. An evening out for the Americans

What do Americans do when they have a free evening? Where do they go?

It is easy if they live in New York or Chicago, for example. There are a lot of theatres and places to go in big cities. But people don’t have to live in New York to enjoy themselves. Many of the theatres travel from town to town. And in some «dinner theatres» you can have dinner and then watch the show.

The cheapest way to enjoy yourself is to go to the cinema. Even in small towns in the USA you can go there and see the latest film.

Many Americans like to go and listen to music. Many forms of music have come from America to other countries. Jazz and blues started from the music that black people played many years ago. The style of country music is also very popular in America, especially in small towns. And some people spend an evening listening .to music and dancing.

Americans are fond of all kinds of sports. Even if they don’t play sports themselves they go to the stadiums to see games or watch them on TV.

He saw a bird in an apple tree. It was a small brown bird with bright red feathers on its chest. Tiger was hungry. He

climbed the tree. The bird did not see him, because its eyes were closed.

The bird was at the end of a long, thin branch. It sang pretty. Tiger walked slowly and quietly longed the branch. He was very near the bird. Suddenly there was a loud crash!

  1. Schools in the Past

One hundred years ago schools were very different. Children did not wear uniforms. They used to wear their everyday clothes to school.

Children learned to read, write and do mathematics. They had history and geography lessons but they did not learn science. They used to write on slates with white chalk. When the children finished their work, they cleaned their slates with a rag so that they could write on them again and again. When they were older, children learned to write with pens and ink. They did not have many books because they were very expensive. Teachers were usually very strict. If the children were naughty they had to stand in the corner.

They did exercises in the playground. They did not do sports like basketball or football.

He is a postman, a policeman, a fireman, a taxi driver, a school-bus driver, a boatman, an ambulance man, an accountant, a petrol attendant, a barman and an undertaker. Also, he and his wife, Margaret, have a shop and a small hotel.

Andrew lives and works on the island of Gigha in the west of Scotland. Only 120 people live in Gigha but in summer 150 tourists come by boat every day.

Every weekday Andrew gets up at 6.00 and makes breakfast for the hotel guests. At 8.00 he drives the island’s children to school. At 9.00 he collects the post from the boat and delivers it to all the houses on the island. He also delivers the beer to the island’s only pub. Then he helps Margaret in the shop.

He says: «Margaret likes being busy, too. We never have holidays and we don’t like watching television. In the evenings Margaret makes supper and I do the accounts. At 10.00 we have a glass of wine and then we go to bed. Perhaps our life isn’t very exciting, but we like it.»

  1. Sky-diver

Clem Quinn was always interested in flying. When he was five, he tried to fly by jumping off the garden shed with a golf umbrella. But when he grew up he didn’t become a pilot, he became a taxi driver. Then 20 years ago he did a parachute jump and loved it. He decided that being a taxi driver in London was a lot more dangerous than jumping out of a plane, so he moved to the country to learn parachute jumping and sky-diving. He is now a full-time teacher of sky-diving. He says: «I love sky-diving because the world looks so good — blue sky, green fields, white clouds. You float through the air, it’s like floating in water. You can see forever, all the way to the French coast. The views are fantastic. You can forget all your worries. People think it is dangerous but it’s very safe. Football is much more dangerous. Footballers often have accidents. When did you last hear of a sky-diving accident? Next July I’m going to do a sky-dive with 100 people from six planes. That’s a record. I’m never going to retire. I’m going to jump out of planes until I’m an old man.»

  1. The Life of Ryan I’ve lived in a foreign country: in Japan, actually. I lived in Osaka for a year. I enjoyed it very much. I loved the food. I have worked for a big company. I worked for Nissan, the car company, that’s why I was in Japan. That was two years ago, then I got another job.

Have I stayed in an expensive hotel? No, never — only cheap hotels for me, but I have flown in a jumbo jet — four or five times, actually. I’ve never cooked a meal for a lot of people. I love food but I don’t like cooking. Sometimes I cook for me and my girlfriend but she likes it better if we go out for a meal!

I’ve never met a famous person — oh, just a minute, well not, met! I saw a famous politician at the airport once. Oh, who was it? I can’t remember his name. I’ve only seen one Shakespeare play. When I was at school, we saw «Romeo and Juliet». It was OK. I’ve driven a tractor. I had a holiday job on a farm when I was 17. I enjoyed that.

Good news — I’ve never been to hospital. I was born in hospital, of course, but that’s different. Bad news — I’ve never won a competition. I do the lottery every week but I’ve never won a thing!

Once there lived a man who had a parrot. The man tried to teach the parrot to speak. But the parrot could learn only the phrase, “There is no doubt about it.” (в этом нет сомнения). The parrot always said these words and always gave the same answer. “There is no doubt about it”.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

A.        Each night after putting her six children to bed, she worked on her novel.

B.        Slaves had no rights; they could be sold and bought.

C.        It was a book that spoke out against slavery.

D.        Disagreements between the North and the South grew.

E.        Yet “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” surely played a part.

F.        Yet most Northerners were not strongly against slavery.

G.        Over 300,000 copies were sold in a year.

Sometimes a book can help change history. One book that certainly did was “Uncle Torn’s Cabin”, written by Harriet Beecher Stowe. (I) At the time Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote her novel, there were over 3.5 million slaves in the United States. Slaves were usually in the cotton-growing states of the South. The Northern states had abolished slavery. (2) They were willing to let slavery’ continue in the South. Stowe was determined to make people understand that slavery was evil. (3) She told the story of characters like Tom, a courageous old slave, Simon Legree, a cruel man who buys Tom, and Eliza, who makes a dangerous escape to freedom. “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” was published in 1852. (4) People reacted strongly to the novel. In the North many people were finally convinced that slavery must be ended. In the South many people were very angry. (5) By 1861 the two sections of the country were at war. The Civil War, which lasted until 1865, finally brought an end to slavery. Of course, the Civil War had many different causes. (6) Stowe met President Lincoln in 1862. As Lincoln took her hand, he said, “So you’re the little woman who started the big war.”

David and Goliath

David lived in Bethlehem. He was a shepherd. He worked every day in the fields. He watched his father’s sheep and protected them from wild animals. David was also a very holy man. He prayed to God regularly. He believed that God protected him when he was with his sheep.


King Saul was the king of Israel. He was in a war with the Philistines. The Philistines were evil people. They did not believe in God. They had many soldiers in their army. Many of the soldiers were scary giants. The largest giant was named Goliath.


Every day Goliath shouted to the Israeli soldiers across the river. He said, “Choose a man to fight me. I am big and strong. No one can defeat me.” Everyone was afraid of Goliath. No Israeli soldier wanted to fight him.


Three of David’s brothers were soldiers. They were with King Saul’s army. David went one day to the battlefront. He wanted to bring food to his brothers. He wanted them to fight well.


David arrived at the soldiers’ camp. He heard Goliath shout. All of the soldiers were afraid of him. David said that he would fight Goliath. King Saul said that David was too small and too weak. “Goliath is a giant. He is a professional soldier. You cannot win, David. You are weak and you have no training as a soldier.”


David knew that God would help him. “God protects me with my sheep. I killed lions and bears because of God’s help. I will fight Goliath. God will help me.” David took his sling with him. He also took five rocks from the river. He did not wear armour. He went to Goliath.


Goliath thought that David was weak. “You cannot kill me,” he said. But David took his sling. He fired a rock and hit Goliath in the head. Goliath fell onto the ground. David quickly grabbed his sword. He stabbed Goliath with the sword and killed him.

Ghost Ship

A.        They called this dream route the Northwest Passage.

B.        The ship was named after the Roman Emperor.

C.        What we do know is that the entire crew was dead.

D.        It was a strange journey.

E.        No one heard from them or saw them until 1775.

F.        That’s a long trip — especially if you live in New York and want to sail to San Francisco.

For a long time the only way to sail from the Atlantic to the Pacific was to the south, around the tip of South America. (1) So queens, captains and merchants dreamed of finding a shortcut through the northern part of Canada. (2)

The first ship to make the voyage through the Northwest Passage was the Octavius. (3) Here’s why:

In 1762 the Octavius and her crew got iced in off the northern coast of Alaska. They were stuck. (4) The ship was spotted off the coast of Greenland by a whaling boat.

How could the Octavius have sailed for 13 summers and 13 freezing winters, from the Pacific to the Atlantic?

No one knows. (5) They had frozen or starved that first winter in 1762, and the ship had drifted for 13 years on its own — with a crew of the dead.

Five Strange Stories


Tony Wilson was walking his dog Sally last July when Sally suddenly stopped. “She was very upset about something,” said Tony afterwards, “but I didn’t know what it was. We were next to Red Lake, near our house. Then, 1 saw something in the lake. Sally was very scared, but I went to investigate. I couldn’t see clearly, but there was definitely something there. It wasn’t a boat, but it was about the same size as a small boat. I had my mobile phone with me, so I took a photo.” Three days later, Tony’s photo appeared in several national newspapers. No one knows what Tony saw, but people have called it “The Red Lake Monster”.


Fifteen schoolchildren were playing in the playground during the lunchtime break when one of them pointed up to the sky. Soon, all the children were looking up. Right above the playground, was a bright round object. “I don’t know what it was,” said Jilly, one of the children. “I know it wasn’t a  plane, though.” Alan Craig,  the teacher who was with them, also saw the object. “It stayed above us for about five minutes,” he said, “before it flew off. Was it a UFO? I suppose so, because none of us know what it was!”


Mike and Carla were watching TV when it suddenly became very cold. “It was very strange,” said Carla, “because it was the middle of summer. I put a sweater on, and we carried on watching TV. Mike saw it first. It looked just like a person, but it was grey and we could see through it. It walked all the way across the room, and through the wall! It’s the strangest thing I’ve ever seen! I don’t really believe in ghosts, but I can’t explain what we saw.”


Twelve-year-old Toby was on holiday with his parents in Italy when he said, ”1 had a weird dream last night. I dreamt our house was on fire and all my toys were destroyed.” Two hours later, Toby’s dad’s mobile phone rang. It was their next-door neighbour. “I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news, Carl. We don’t know how it started, but your house burnt down last night. The firemen did their best, but there’s not much left. At least no one was hurt.”


Liza and Christine were friends from school. Now in their thirties, they meet once or twice a year, usually at a restaurant in London. On one occasion, they were chatting about their days at school. “Do you remember Fiona Shaw?” asked Liza. “1 often think about her,” she said. “I wonder what happened to her.” A voice at the next table interrupted them. “Liza? Christine? I can’t believe it! It’s me. Fiona Shaw. Remember me?”

In the Cave

In the corner we saw three huge stone boxes full of lumps of gold and crudely made coins. (1) There must have been thousands of them, more! We all went over and picked up the metal letting it fall through our fingers, and back into the box.

Suddenly John jumped back. We all looked round to see him struggling with Gagool. “Look out! (2)” John shouted. We all ran over, but before we could help, Gagool made a last effort and freed herself and dived for the door. But she was too late, the heavy stone slab came down on her.

We all tried to lift the stone up. (3) We must have tried for an hour, bul in the end the torches went out, and we were still no closer to moving the heavy stone.

“Why is the air in the cave still fresh after all these hours?” asked Sir Heniy, after several more hours had passed. “(4)”

There was nothing to lose, so we started feeling the walls and floor to see if there were any cracks. (5) After an hour and a half John cried out, “Hold on, I think I have found something. Come here!” With one of our last matches we were able to see a metal ring set into a stone. The air was blowing through the cracks around the edge of the block. (6) When it opened we could see a narrow staircase leading down into the mountain.

Before we went down the stairway we filled our pockets and a couple of sacks with gold. In the darkness we groped our way down the stairs and along a passage.

Прочитайте тексты и установите соответствие между текстами и их заголовками: к каждому тексту, обозначенному буквами А–G, подберите соответствующий заголовок, обозначенный цифрами 1–8. Используйте каждую цифру только один раз. В задании есть один лишний заголовок.

1. The scientific explanation
2. The real shape
3. A lucky sign
4. Some tips
5. Places without rainbows
6. A personal vision
7. A bridge between worlds
8. Impossible to catch

A. Two people never see the same rainbow. Each person sees a different one. It happens because the raindrops are constantly moving so the rainbow is always changing too. Each time you see a rainbow it is unique and it will never be the same! In addition, everyone sees colours differently according to the light and how their eyes interpret it.

B. A rainbow is an optical phenomenon that is seen in the atmosphere. It appears in the sky when the sun’s light is reflected by the raindrops. A rainbow always appears during or immediately after showers when the sun is shining and the air contains raindrops. As a result, a spectrum of colours is seen in the sky. It takes the shape of a multicoloured arc.

C. Many cultures see the rainbow as a road, a connection between earth and heaven (the place where God lives). Legends say that it goes below the earth at the horizon and then comes back up again. In this way it makes a permanent link between what is above and below, between life and death. In some myths the rainbow is compared to a staircase connecting earth to heaven.

D. We all believe that the rainbow is arch-shaped. The funny thing is that it’s actually a circle. The reason we don’t see the other half of the rainbow is because we cannot see below the horizon. However, the higher we are above the ground, the more of the rainbow’s circle we can see. That is why, from an airplane in flight, a rainbow will appear as a complete circle with the shadow of the airplane in the centre.

E. In many cultures there is a belief that seeing a rainbow is good. Legends say that if you dig at the end of a rainbow, you’ll find a pot of gold. Rainbows are also seen after a storm, showing that the weather is getting better, and there is hope after the storm. This is why they are associated with rescue and good fortune. If people happen to get married on such a day, it is said that they will enjoy a very happy life together.

F. You can never reach the end of a rainbow. A rainbow is all light and water. It is always in front of you while your back is to the sun. As you move, the rainbow that your eye sees moves as well and it will always ‘move away’ at the same speed that you are moving. No matter how hard you try, a rainbow will always be as far away from you as it was before you started to move towards it.

G. To see a rainbow you have to remember some points. First, you should be standing with the sun behind you. Secondly, the rain should be in front of you. The most impressive rainbows appear when half of the sky is still dark with clouds and the other half is clear. The best time to see a rainbow is on a warm day in the early morning after sunrise or late afternoon before sunset. Rainbows are often seen near waterfalls and fountains.

1.The Earl of Sandwich lived long ago in England. He was a fanatic about playing cards. He didn’t even want to stop playing to eat a meal and refused to put his cards away. So his servant invented a quick meal for him. He put some meat between two slices of bread, so that the Earl could hold his meal in one hand and play cards with the other.

2.Sandwiches were great favourites in Victorian England. It was a tradition to take an afternoon tea at about 5 o’clock, and many rich families ate sandwiches at that time. Cucumber sandwiches were very popular. The sandwiches were very small and delicate. Sandwiches are less elegant now and often much bigger.

1.William Shakespeare, the greatest English writerof drama, was born in 1564 in Stratford-on-Avon. We don’t know everything about Shakespeare’s early life. But we know that he studied at the Grammar School in Stratford, and that he became interested in the theatre when he was still a boy.

In 1586 Shakespeare went to London, where he worked in the theatre for some years before he began to write his own plays.

2.Shakespeare soon became well-known in London literary circles. Every play that he wrote was good news to the people of the capital. Queen Elizabeth I liked Shakespeare’s plays, and the actors were often invited to play before the Queen and later before the King James- a great honor in those days. By the end of the 16th century Shakespeare and his friends built their own theatre –the famous Globe Theatre.

Искусство английского языка

Государственный совет по образованию имеет право принимать академические стандарты для каждой предметной области в классах K-12.

Стандарты ELA предназначены для подготовки учащихся к наиболее важным знаниям и навыкам грамотности 21 века, необходимым для преуспевания в высшем учебном заведении и в сфере труда. Стандарты делают упор на критическое и дивергентное мышление, решение проблем, активное слушание, распознавание шаблонов и аномалий, а также на оценку и вопросы исходного материала.

Стандарты усиливают три учебных смены ELA: регулярная практика со сложным текстом и его академической лексикой; чтение и письмо на основе доказательств из литературного и информационного текста; и накопление знаний с помощью содержательного литературного и информационного текста.

Скачать стандарты ELA

Все стандарты ELA от K – 12 помещены в один документ с оглавлением в начале. Представляя стандарты в вертикальной диаграмме по стандарту, а не отдельно по классам, мы стремимся подчеркнуть, как навыки чтения, письма, разговорной речи и аудирования, а также языковые навыки проходят по спирали на всех уровнях обучения, что приводит к готовности к послесреднему и рабочей силе. .

  • В классах K – 5 стандарты указывают на важность закладывания прочной основы для чтения и письма.
  • Средние классы, 6–8, укрепляют фундамент, увеличивая сложность выделения текста и задач.
  • Наконец, в 9–12 классах особое внимание уделяется изысканности и стилю.

Поскольку стандарты со временем дополняют друг друга, мы настоятельно рекомендуем преподавателям пересмотреть стандарты уровня обучения до и после уровня, чтобы лучше понять, как стандарты их уровня соотносятся с общим развитием учащихся.

Поскольку стандарты со временем дополняют друг друга, преподавателям необходимо пересмотреть стандарты уровня обучения до и после его уровня, чтобы лучше понять, как стандарты их уровня вписываются в общее развитие учащихся.

Примечание: Государственный совет по образованию устанавливает требования для окончания средней школы (см. Политику средней школы 2.103). Согласно правилу SBE, учащиеся должны получить четыре единицы английского языка на уровне средней школы, чтобы получить диплом об окончании средней школы.
