English Showcase V

On 16th January we commemorate MARTIN LUTHER KING in USA

Extract from speech I have a dream:

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

On 25th January it is ROBERT BURNS´S DAY in Scotland.

People pay tribute to the national poet of Scotland through the ritual of Burns Supper, a celebration of his life and poetry,which should include Haggis, a traditional Scottish dish.

On 26th January it is AUSTRALIA DAY

Australia is a country and a continent. Most of the country is hot and dry, especially in the middle where there are deserts. Few people live in these areas, but there are large sheep and cattle farms called stations (Australia produces 25 % of the world´s wool – there are around 10 sheep per person). Two-thirds of the Australians live in the large cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The capital is Canberra. Although it is a big country, almost as big as the USA, the population of Australia is only 16 million, compared with 245 million in the USA.
Australia Day is an official holiday in Australia celebrating national pride and culture.
