4 Reading
A Read the text about Christmas in Britain.

A traditional British celebration


All children love December because they have school holidays and they celebrate Christmas and
New Year with their families.
Christmas (24–26 December) is a big traditional festival, a time when friends and family can be
together. In Europe the important time is the evening of the 24th but in Britain, the 25th is the
big day.
At the beginning of December most people buy a special Christmas tree and put it in the living
room. Just before Christmas Day (usually on the 24th), the parents put all the presents under the
tree and then on the morning of the 25th, the children wake up very early because they are so
excited and they want to open their presents.
The traditional Christmas meal is a huge lunch with turkey, roast potatoes and vegetables with
a special dessert and of course a large Christmas cake. Everyone eats and drinks a lot and at 3 pm
they watch the Queen on television.
The 26 December is called Boxing Day and it is also a national holiday. Most people visit friends
and eat a lot of Christmas food again!

B Answer the questions.


1 Why do children love December?

2 Which day is important in Britain?

3 Why do the children wake up so early on Christmas Day?

MODULE 3 TEST B
4 What do the British eat for lunch on Christmas Day?

5 When is the Queen on television?

7 Writing
Read this email from your penfriend, Jan.

Hi Susanna,

How are you? I hope everything is OK. I’m enjoying my weekend because I
haven’t got any homework! How about you?

I want to tell you about my home. I live with my parents, my two sisters and
our dog in a big house near the town centre. We’ve got five bedrooms, three
bathrooms, a living room, a dining room and a kitchen. We’ve also got a big
garden with a swimming pool. I go swimming every day – in winter too!

My favourite room is the living room because it’s sunny. I always sit in my
favourite armchair near the window. I watch TV and DVDs in the living room,
but I also have a TV in my bedroom. I often watch it when I’m in bed.

Please write and tell me about your house. What’s your favourite room, and
why?

Write soon!

Jan

Now write your reply. Tell Jan about your home.

Dear Jan,

Thanks for your email …
