Today we are going to present our projects.
My project is
Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.
Rita Mae Brown

To know English today is absolutely necessary for every educated person, for every good specialist. Learning a language is not an easy thing. It's a long and slow process that takes a lot of time and patience. But it's a must. Everyone will speak English soon — I'm sure of it. We all need to understand each other. To do that we need an international language, and that's English.
English is the language of politics and diplomacy, science and technology, business and trade, sport and pop music. 80% of all information in the world's computers is in English. 75% of the world's letters and faxes are in English. 60% of all international telephone calls are made in English. More than 60% of all scientific journals are written in English.
Aims of the project:
        to motivate teenagers to learn English as an international language of communication ;
        to provide teenagers to be able to express their talents and creativity;
        to develop English speaking skills;
