The Great Barrier Reef lies in the Coral Sea. It is often called the longest coral reef in the world. The Reef is actually a series of coral islands, reefs, and shoals that extend north to southeast for over 2,000 km. The coral itself is made up of the skeletons of tiny, flowerlike water animals called polyps, held together by a limestone substance produced by a type of algae. Hundreds of species of polyps form coral in a beautiful range of colors and shapes.
The reef forms a natural breakwater between the strong waves of the Pacific and the coast of Australia. The channel that separates it from the coast varies in width from 16 to 240 km. Water in the channel is calm and shallow.
You are going to visit Australia with your friend. Discuss the visiting of the Great Barrier Reef.

“It calls up the past. When Columbus first saw this continent Niagara was roaring here. Niagara is as strong today as ten thousand years ago.” Abraham Lincoln
Captain Webb was known as the first man to swim the English channel. On the evening of July 24, 1883 he came up to the river and dived in. Many people were present there. Soon the man appeared in the middle of the river. A loud shout went up from the crowd, but a moment later the man went under the water. Thousands of eyes were looking at the river, but the man was drowned. In 1902 a young woman decided to go over the Falls in a barrel. There were many pillows inside the barrel. When Miss Taylor examined the barrel carefully, she got in. The barrel was closed and then thrown into the river. When the barrel reached the Falls it was shot down by the terrible force of the water. The barrel was caught and opened. Miss Taylor came out alive but frightened very much.

Can you imagine a day without a computer? I am sure your answer will be “NO”. Today our life is impossible without the computers. They are running factories, planning our cities, teaching children and forecasting our future. The computer solves in seconds the problems a generation of mathematicians would need months or years to solve without its help. They can help make up a person’s shopping list, remind someone of important appointments and anniversaries and answer the telephone. They say, the increasing flood of information will be one of the problems of the 21-st century. A computer helps solve it too. In a computerized library requests for information will be answered instantly and as fully as the user wants.
A machine for mathematical computation was built in 1833 by the English mathematician Charles Babbage. Now the scientists realize that he understood clearly all the fundamental principles of modern computers. Charles Babbage was born in Devonshire, England, 1792. He did not receive a good education , but he taught himself mathematics so well that when he went to Cambridge, he found that he knew more algebra than his tutor.

New Zealand has very few native animals. The kiwi, a bird which lives in the forest and does not fly, is found nowhere else in the world. The kiwi is the national emblem of New Zealand. This interesting bird lives in the wet parts of the thick bushes. In the day-time the bird does not go out. It comes out only at night to find food. Kiwis cannot fly. Many years ago kiwis were hunted for food. Now the government does not permit hunting the kiwis. Small children are often called kiwis.
The kiwi is rather an unusual bird found only in New Zealand. It has no tail, almost no wings, and its nostrils are situated near the end of its bill. No other bird lays an egg so large in proportion to its size. Its egg is about one fifth of its own weight. This is a tremendous size.
You are visiting New Zealand. And you meet the kiwi. It doesn’t fly from you because it can’ t fly. What will you do? What will you say to the bird? What will you feed it with?
