TEXT I. FROM THE HISTORY OF NEW YORK
In 1605 the first Europeans came to Manhattan from Holland. Captain Henry Hudson, searching for the famous Northwest Passage, discovered the land and reached a river to which he gave his name.
Later a Dutchman, Peter Minuit, bought Manhattan Island from the Indians for a barrel of rum and a few glass necklaces, worth about $26. The Americans say that this was the best business deal ever made in New York. In 1613 the Dutch founded a city there and gave it the name «New Amsterdam».
After the English had taken over the city in 1626 it was renamed New York after the Duke of York who was the commander of the English army. During the War of Independence New York was an important political centre, and for five years from 1785 till 1790 the capital of the USA
Since the end of the 19th century the city began to develop at breakneck speed. In 1888 the first skyscraper was put up. It had only 13 storeys, but the next had twenty-two, the Empire State building-102.
New York is carefully planned. The city has been built rectangularly. All the streets, except Broadway, run either north and south, or east and west. Only Broadway runs diagonally across the city.
The Americans have not given the New York streets names of their famous men, but have called them by ordinal numbers or letters of the alphabet, e.g. Second Street, First Avenue. Avenue A, Avenue B. etc.

TEXT 2. RECREATION
Baseball, basketball, American football, and ice hockey are the most popular spectator and participation sports, but Americans enjoy an enormous range of activities, including soccer, cycling, racket-ball (a hybrid of squash and handball), tennis, swimming, skin diving, golf, bowling, martial arts, walking, jogging, and aerobic exercise. Schools, cities, and other organizations sponsor team sports for the young, and professional sports are an important part of the culture.
Sports and games in the United States take both forms: amateur and professional. Professional sport is big business. The players and athletes are paid much money, and they are bought and sold between clubs,
BASEBALL is the most popular summer sport in the United States. It is played by schools, colleges and professional teams. Baseball is a game between two teams and is played on a field with a bat and a small white ball. Each team consists of nine players. The first American baseball match was in 1839 in New York, but some people think that baseball comes from a much older game called «rounders», played in Europe for many years.
BASKETBALL is played on a court with a large orange ball. There are only five players on each team. The players try to shoot the ball into the basket, or hoop. As a rule, the players are very tall.
FOOTBALL is a field game between two teams of eleven players each. But American football rules differ from those of the ordinary football. The field looks different and Americans play with an oval-shaped ball. The players can run with the ball, touch and push each other. So the players are often hurt in American football. The teams wear special clothes and helmets as in hockey because the game can be dangerous.
SOCCER is the American name for the ordinary European football. It is one of the most popular international sports in the United States as well as tennis, wrestling, boxing, horse-racing and others.
In general, most Americans spend a large amount of their leisure time socializing or watching television. Other leisure activities include going to the cinema or concerts, picnicking, and travelling. Many Americans enjoy volunteering for a wide range of causes: from raising funds to help those who are less fortunate to tutoring, students, or leading Scout troops or youth sports. Even city dwellers enjoy spending time in the «great outdoors», camping, hiking or hunting.

БРИТАНСКАЯ МОНАРХИЯ СЕГОДНЯ
Соединенное Королевство — конституционная монархия. Это означает, что у неё есть монарх (король или королева) в качестве его Главы государства. Монарх правит при поддержке Парламента. Полномочия монарха точно не определены. Сегодня все делается во имя Королевы. Это — ее правительство, ее вооруженные силы, ее правосудие и так далее. Она назначает всех Министров, включая Главного Министра. Все сделано однако при совете избранного Правительства, и монарх не принимает участия в процессе принятия решений.
Раньше Британская империя включала в себя большое количество стран, которыми во всем мире управляла Великобритания. Процесс деколонизации начался в 1947 с незавимимости Индии, Пакистана и Острова Цейлон. Сейчас, кроме Гонконга и нескольких маленьких островов, империи не существует. Но британские правящие классы попытались не потерять влияние на прежние колонии Британской империи. В 1949 была основана ассоциация бывших членов Британской империи и Великобритании. Оно называется Содружеством и включает много стран, таких как Ирландия, Бирма, Судан, Канада, Австралия, Новая Зеландия и другие. Королева Великобритании – также является Главой Содружества, и таким образом Королевой Канады, Австралии, Новой Зеландии.
Королева очень богата, как и другие члены королевской семьи. Кроме того, правительство платит за ее расходы в качестве главы государства, на королевскую яхту, поезда и самолеты, а так же содержание нескольких дворцов. Изображение Королевы появляется на печатях, банкнотах и монетах.
