1 The guide tour

2 There are fifty stars on the modern US flag. It was decided to add a star for every new state, but to keep the number of stripes unchanged. So there will always be thirteen stripes on the American flag to commemorate the original thirteen colonies that started the Union.

3 The millions of immigrants who had come to America by sea were welcomed by a very tall woman. She was wearing a robe and her right arm was holding a torch high in the air. The woman is still there looking out to sea. She is the Statue of Liberty, one of the most famous symbols of America.

4 “There are many apples on the tree, but Only one Big Apple”. The old saying is very true when we talk about New York – America’s Big Apple. It is the largest city in the country, but it’s not the capital.

5 Find the Big Apple’s mega star - The Empire State Building, which became the tallest skyscraper in New York on September 11, 2001 (the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center used to be higher).

6 Thousands of people come to Broadway to see fantastic musicals.

7 Washington is the capital of the USA. Look at this four-sided structure which looks like an Egyptian obelisk. It honours the “Father of the Country” and the first President of the United States – George Washington.

8 It’s the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC So if you want to write to the American President, now you know the address.

14 The guide: In South Dakota we have a joke: What has 60-foot high faces, eyes 11 feet across, noses 20 feet long, mouths that stretch 18 feet wide, and is visited by two and a half million people a year? You can see a monument that celebrates the memory of some great people in American history, the most respected presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

15 Conclusion: This presentation consists some short information about one of the most famous places and sightseeing of the USA. The USA is an English-speaking country. I think it is very important to learn a lot about life in this country, it’s history, it’s traditions and it’s sightseeing. Thank you!
