Travelling. Means of transport

 Why do people travel

Many people are fond of travelling. People travel to see other countries and continents, to study different traditions, to try different food, or to explore beautiful places. They all travel in different ways.

Мно­гие люди любят пу­те­ше­ство­вать. Люди пу­те­ше­ству­ют, чтобы уви­деть дру­гие стра­ны и кон­ти­нен­ты, изу­чить дру­гие тра­ди­ции, по­про­бо­вать дру­гую еду или ис­сле­до­вать кра­си­вые места. Все они пу­те­ше­ству­ют раз­лич­ны­ми спо­со­ба­ми.

 Transportation song

You can drive a car,

You can drive a truck,

You can ride on a train,

Or in a bus.

How do you get from A to B?

Over land, through the air, or on the sea?

You can ride a scooter,

You can ride a bike,

You can ride a unicycle

If you like.

How do you get from A to B?

Over land, through the air, or on the sea?

You can sail a yacht

If the wind is right

Or inside a submarine

If it’s watertight.

You can fly a plane

Way up in the sky

Or a helicopter

If you want to try.

How do you get from A to B?

Over land, through the air, or on the sea?

You can catch a taxi

If you have the fare

Or you can walk

From here to there.

How do you get from A to B?

Over land, through the air, or on the sea?

You can fly a rocket ship

If you have been taught

But first you have to train to be

An astronaut.

How do you get from A to B?

Over land, through the air, or on the sea?

How do you get from A to B?

Over land, through the air, or on the sea?

 The first wheel, bike and airplane

Imagine if there was no other way to get around but by walking, it would take you a lot of time to get anywhere. So we need to thank a few people for saving our shoes. Like the person who invented the wheel. The wheel is everywhere: on our cars, trains and planes. But we don’t know who exactly made the first wheel. The oldest wheel found by archeologists is believed to be over fifty-five hundred years old.

Пред­ставь­те себе, если бы не было ни­ка­ко­го дру­го­го спо­со­ба пу­те­ше­ство­вать, кроме как пеш­ком, за­ня­ло бы у вас много вре­ме­ни, чтобы по­пасть в новое место. По­это­му нам сле­ду­ет по­бла­го­да­рить несколь­ко че­ло­век за со­хран­ность нашей обуви. На­при­мер, че­ло­ве­ка, ко­то­рый изоб­рел ко­ле­со. Ко­ле­со везде: на наших ав­то­мо­би­лях, по­ез­дах и са­мо­ле­тах. Но мы не знаем, кто имен­но изоб­рел пер­вое ко­ле­со. Счи­та­ет­ся, что са­мо­му пер­во­му ко­ле­су, най­ден­но­му ар­хео­ло­га­ми, более пяти с по­ло­ви­ной тысяч лет.

When you are riding about on your bike, do you ever wonder what the first bicycle looked like? The first bicycle was invented almost two hundred years ago.

Когда вы едете на ве­ло­си­пе­де, вы за­ду­мы­ва­е­тесь над тем, как вы­гля­дел пер­вый ве­ло­си­пед? Пер­вый ве­ло­си­пед был изоб­ре­тен почти две­сти лет назад.

 The story about Mike

Mike loves travelling a lot. Last year Mike took a trip to England. He went to the airport by bus and travelled to London by plane. In London he took a bus to the city centre. London buses are called double-deckers. They have a driver and a conductor. Mike got to most places in London very quickly by the underground. There are many lines in the London underground. He bought the tickets from the ticket office and the underground station, or from the automatic machines. If Mike was in a hurry, the fastest way of travelling was by taxi. Their shape and black color are famous all over the world. The “cabs”, as they are called, have become the symbol of London. London taxi drivers have green badges on their jackets. Mike had a wonderful time in London. Then he decided to go to Coventry, another city of England. It’s easy to get there by car or by train. Mike doesn’t have a car. So he went to the train station by bus and went to Coventry by train. He visited there a famous transport museum. He got there on foot. It took him 15 minutes. He discovered the very first bicycles and the fastest cars on Earth. Mike liked it a lot. Next year Mike is going to travel to France by ship, and you?
