Your Amazing Brain!

Чет тили
There's a mass of wrinkly material in your head, weighing around 1.3kg, which controls every single thing you will ever do. It enables you to think, learn, create and feel emotions, as well as controlling every blink, breath and heartbeat. This fantastic organ is your brain! It’s so amazing that famous scientist James D. Watson once called the brain «the most complex thing we have yet discovered in our universe.» Here's why!

Your Amazing Eyes!

You carry around a pair of cameras in your head so incredible they can work in bright sunshine or at night. Only 2.5cm in diameter, they can bring you the image of a tiny ant or a twinkling star trillions of kilometres away. They can change focus almost instantly and stay focused even when you’re shaking your head around. These cameras are your eyes…

Sentence stress and rhythm

English step by step
Чет тили
Sentence stress is the main means of providing rhythm in speech. Rhythm is the key to fluent English speech. Imagine a metronome beating the rhythm. The stressed syllables are like the beats of the metronome: regular, loud, and clear. The unstressed syllables between the beats are shortened, obscured, and joined together.
Look at this sentence:
Kevin sent a letter.
Let's mark the stressed syllables:
KEVin SENT a \LETter.
The pattern of stress in this sentence is stressed – unstressed – stressed – unstressed – stressed – unstressed, with equal number of alternating stressed and unstressed syllables. Try to pronounce this sentence rhythmically. It should be easy to do because the alternation of one stressed and one unstressed syllable is easy to reproduce. Be sure to make the stress in the stressed syllables strong – much stronger than normal Russian stress.

American English and its accents

English step by step
Чет тили
American English has a number of regional accents, including such well-known accents as the Midwestern accent, the Southern accent, the speech of New England. On the whole, regional American accents share enough common features in pronunciation and speech patterns so that the spoken language in the United States can be clearly distinguished from the languge spoken in Great Britain or from other varieties of spoken English.
Common characteristics of regional American accents include such clearly noticeable features as the sound [r] pronounced in all positions in words (e.g., hard [ha:rd], more [mo:r], first [fərst]); the sound [æ] in words like «ask, last, class, demand, dance» (whereas British English has [a:] in such cases); the sound [o] that sounds like [a:] in words like «hot, rob, gone, sorry, bother, want»; the sound [yu:] pronounced as [u:] after the letters «d, n, s, t» (duplicate, news, sue, student, tune).

English step by step
Чет тили
No recorded documentation proves that who invented the American Flag and when. But the common stories that support the views regarding invention tell us that George Washington drew a rough sketch and it was Betsy Ross who designed and sewed the first American Flag. The family of Rebecca Young claims Rebecca to be the one to design the same. Another story for the same is of the Chairman of the Continental Navy Board’s Middle Department, Francis Hopkinson who claims to design and make this flag during his service tenure and have been said to pass the bill for the same to the Congress in 1777. The flag resolution of 1777 was passed by the Second Continental Congress of the Marine Committee. The resolution said that the flag would have thirteen alternating stripes and the corner having thirteen stars against blue background each representing thirteen colonies of America.
