T: Today we are going to start a new lesson, but first I want you to revise what we did last lessons. We talked about the British ways of life, did not we? Can you give me some facts about life in GB?

Pupils give the information from the text “The British ways of life”

T: I would like to add that British people take care of their health. They try to eat healthy food to keep fit, go in for sports, and fewer people smoke now. They have always been wise so there are a lot of English proverbs about health. I have prepared some for you.

Try to read them. These sheets of paper are with 2 parts of proverbs (the beginning and the end). Try to put British proverbs together and read them. It will be difficult, but I am sure that you will manage to do it.
