Scotland. The beauty of the country

Task: Read the text in your student's book about Scotland and give short information using the plan. Take one slide in the presentation. Be ready to tell it at the lesson.

1. Famous people:
Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796) is a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English.
2. Holidays:
January, 25th  – Burns’ Night in Scotland.

Many Scottish people hold a special supper (dinner) on Burns’ Night, a celebration of Robert Burns, with toasts and readings of his poetry. Men might wear kilts, there may be bagpipe music, and people will almost certainly eat haggis (the traditional Scottish dish of sheeps’ heart, liver and lungs) with neeps (turnips) and tatties (potatoes).
