Ascolta e leggi il brano. Quali sei membri della famiglia reale britannica vengono menzionati?
The British Royal Family is changing and the new generation of Royals is different.
Their lives are always interesting to British people and there are often stories about
them in the newspapers!
William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor
Born: 21.06.82
Prince William is a very famous young Royal. He’s very tall and
good-looking with blonde hair and blue eyes, and he looks
like his mother, Princess Diana. William is very popular with
British people. There are hundreds of websites about him
and he gets thousands of letters every month!
When he isn’t working, William’s got normal hobbies.
He likes going to the cinema, eating out in restaurants
and doing lots of sport. His favourite sports include
football, swimming and rugby. He rides a motorbike
and he likes R&B music, too. He’s also learning
Swahili, an African language.
Henry Charles Albert David Windsor
Born: 15.09.84
Prince Henry is usually called Prince Harry. He’s tall
and he’s got red hair and green eyes. In the future,
Harry wants to work for lots of charities, like his
mother, Princess Diana.
At the moment, Harry is in the army. He hasn’t
got much free time because the army is hard
work. When he isn’t working, he plays golf and
goes out with friends. He can also ride horses
very well, and he’s an excellent polo player.
He plays in polo competitions with his
father, Prince Charles.
Zara Anne Elizabeth Phillips
Born: 15.05.81
Zara is Princess Anne’s daughter. Her name means ‘bright as the dawn’.
She’s pretty and she’s got blonde hair and blue eyes, so there are
always lots of pictures of her in the British newspapers!
ten
Zara’s family loves horses. Her parents were in the Olympic Games
and Zara’s training because she wants to ride in the Olympics,
too. She rides horses every day at her home in Gloucestershire.
She also plays hockey and she likes listening to music. And what

British Food
Bacon and eggs is a traditional breakfast in
the UK, but it isn’t common now. Some people
have a cooked breakfast at the weekend but
most people don’t have time in the week.
Toast, cereal and fruit are popular.
Breakfast is between 7 and 9 a.m. and lunch
is between 12 and 1.30 p.m. The British
tradition of ‘afternoon tea’ – tea, sandwiches
and cakes – at 4 o’clock is unusual now. The
main meal of the day is dinner in the evening,
usually between 6 and 8 p.m.
There are lots of traditional kinds of food
in the UK – roast beef, turkey at Christmas,
pies, fish and chips and, of course, English
breakfasts. People from many different
cultures live in the UK so British people also
love food from other countries. The country’s
favourite dish is… curry!

Some people think that British people eat terrible
food, but that isn’t true! This is my typical day …
For breakfast, I usually have some cereal,
toast and orange juice at about 8 a.m. My parents
always drink tea, but I prefer coffee.
I have lunch at school at about 1 p.m. I usually
’s always
have some fish or a pizza. 1
hot food at school.
When I get home, I have a snack – 2
fruit or crisps. In the evening, Mum and Dad cook
dinner. We have some meat and vegetables or
Italian
pasta at about 7 p.m. Dad likes 3
food.
Weekends are different. On Saturdays, we often
have bacon and eggs for breakfast – delicious!
4
the evening we sometimes eat out or
we order a take-away meal.
At lunchtime on Sundays, we always 5
together at about 2 p.m. and we usually have
roast chicken.
Eating out isn’t cheap, but there’s a
fantastic choice of different restaurants.
Indian, Chinese, Italian and Thai restaurants
are common.
Fast food and snacks are always popular
with children in the UK. Teenagers eat over
3,000 million packets of crisps each year!
Sandwiches, a British invention, are very
common for lunch, especially in the ‘packed
lunches’ that children take to school.
There are now many coffee bars in British
towns. Caffé latte, cappuccino and espresso
are all popular, but tea is still the UK’s
favourite drink. That’s tea with milk, of
course. British people drink over 200
million cups of tea every day!

Christmas shopping! In October there are
TV advertisements for food and presents. In
November people buy Christmas cards. British
people send over 2,000 million Christmas cards
every year!

At the beginning of December children get
an advent calendar. These are calendars with a
different ‘door’ for every day of the month until
Christmas Eve – 24 in total. When you open each
door, there’s a picture or some chocolate.

Twelve days before Christmas Day people
decorate their Christmas tree. Every year British
people buy about 7 million Christmas trees!

December is Christmas Eve. In the
evening some people go to church and sing carols
– traditional Christmas songs. Children hang up
stockings for their presents and leave a drink for
Father Christmas and a carrot for his reindeer.

25th December is Christmas Day! In the

turkeys on Christmas Day! At 3 o’clock the Queen
speaks on television. For the rest of the day many
people play games, watch TV and enjoy their
presents.

Ascolta e leggi il brano. Trova tre cose che succedono a capodanno in Scozia.
Scottish people like Christmas, but they love New Year!
In Scotland, 31st December is called Hogmanay and it’s a very important celebration.
Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen
have big street parties. On Hogmanay,
in Edinburgh, over 100,000 people have
a party in the centre of the city. There is
music, singing, dancing and fireworks.
There are some special traditions in
Scotland. It’s lucky if a tall, dark man
comes to your house after midnight.
He brings you some coal and you give
him a drink. It’s called ‘first footing’
because the man is the ‘first foot’ in
your house on 1st January.
At midnight there are fireworks and
people kiss! There is also a traditional
song called ‘Auld Lang Syne’. It’s a song
about friends from the past and the
future.
t
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot

In other places in Scotland there are
different traditions. In the Orkney
Islands in the north of Scotland, there is
the New Year Ba’ game on 1st January.
This is a big game, similar to rugby but
with over 200 players!
Hogmanay is a very big celebration in Scotland and on 1st January
people are very tired. But Scottish people are very lucky – 2nd January
is a national holiday in Scotland, too!

Hi! I’m Ben and I’m from Olney, in England. Today is
Pancake Day!
Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is six and a half
weeks before Easter. It’s a tradition to finish all the
eggs and milk before Lent. On Shrove Tuesday,
people eat pancakes.
I love making pancakes. My dad
throws them in the air to cook the
other side and they sometimes fall on
the floor! I like them with lemon juice
and sugar – they’re delicious. This is

Our town is famous because every year
there’s a pancake race in Olney.
The race is only for women and is 380 metres long. The women run to the church with a frying pan and
a hot pancake in it. They throw the pancake in the air
three times and they can’t drop it. The verger of
Olney kisses the winner!

May Day
Ascolta e leggi il brano e scrivi le tradizioni del Primo Maggio nel Regno Unito sotto

Morris dancers singing at the top of the Bell Tower maypole dancing
The first day of May is called May Day. Spring is here and
people decorate their towns and villages with flowers.
Some towns and many villages have a tradition of
maypole dancing. This tradition is hundreds of years
old. A maypole is a long pole with ribbons. Children
dance around the maypole, and they make a pretty
pattern with the ribbons. From 1661 to 1710, there was a
maypole in the centre of London, near Covent Garden.
It was 40 metres high!
1
May Day in Oxford is very special. About 10,000 people
go to the centre of the city to see the sunrise. Then
a choir climbs 45 metres to the top of Magdalen Bell
Tower. At 6 o’clock the choir sings beautiful songs to
the people below.
2
You can also see Morris dancing on May Day. This
traditional dance is over 500 years old. It’s an English
tradition but now there are Morris dancing groups in
other countries. Morris dancers are usually men but
sometimes women dance too. The dancers wear special
clothes with small bells on their knees. You can always
hear Morris dancers before you see them!

But we always arrive at school at quarter past
eight. We go to the school ‘Breakfast Club’. At
Breakfast Club you can eat a healthy breakfast
of toast, fruit, yoghurt, cereal and orange
juice before lessons start. A different class
each week makes the breakfasts and takes
the money. That way we learn about food and
maths. Our Head says, ‘The Breakfast Club is
an excellent idea. Students need breakfast for
energy. Without energy they can’t do their
lessons well.’ We think it’s really good to meet
our friends before classes, too.
