Read and translate the text. Answer the following questions.

If we are fond of traveling we see and learn all sorts of things that we can never see or learn at home, though we may read about them in books and newspapers, and see pictures of them at the cinema. The best way to study geography is to travel, and the best way to get to know and understand the people is to meet them in their own homes.

Most people who spend a holiday in traveling take a camera with them and photograph anything that interests or pleases them – the sights of a city; views of mountains, lakes, valleys, plains, waterfalls, forests, etc.; famous men and women; the ruins of ancient buildings; and even animals and birds. Later, perhaps years later, they will be reminded by the photographs of the happy time they had had.

Sports in Great Britain

English people are fond of all kind of sports. England is a sports – loving nation. Sports in England take many forms: organized competitive sports, which attract huge crowds to encourage their favorite team to victory, athletic games played for recreation and others.

Some sports are called spectator sports, when the number of spectators is greater than the number of people playing in the game. Other sports are called participant, sports attracting crowds only on special occasions such as tournaments.

The game peculiarly associated with England is cricket. Many other games too are English in origin, but have been accepted with enthusiasm in other countries; cricket has been seriously and extensively accepted only in the Commonwealth, particularly in Australia, India, Pakistan.

Cricket is slow, and a spectator, sitting in the afternoon sun after his lunch, may be excused for having a little sleep for half an hour. Cricket is making no progress in popularity. Association football or soccer is very popular. Nearly 40 million spectators each year attend matches between the great professional teams organized by the Football League. The biggest event in England is the Cup Final played at the Empire Stadium, Wembley, in a London suburb.

Rugby football (or rugger) has existed in Britain since the beginning of the 19th century, when a teacher at Rugby school, while playing football, decided that it would be better to pick up the ball and run with it.

Rugby football is played with an egg – shaped ball which may be carried and thrown (but not forward).

The games of golf and tennis are played by great numbers of people. Golf is played in the countryside. It consists in driving a small ball towards and into holes separated by considerable distances, by means of special golf clubs. The aim is to “go round” using as few strokes as possible.

There are many tennis clubs, but every town provides tennis courts in public parks. The world championship tennis matches are held at Wimbledon in London, during June and July.
