The hamburger has no connection to ham. It got its name from the German town of Hamburg, which was famous for its ground steak. German immigrant to the United States introduced the "hamburger steak".
At the St. Lois World's Fair in 1904, hamburger steaks were served on buns for the first time. Hamburgers on buns were convenient and tasted good. This became the usual way of eating hamburgers.
How did the hamburgers become the most popular, most typical American food? The introduction of the bun is an important part of the answer. Another important part is McDonald's, the fast-food restaurant.
The first McDonald's was opened in San Bernadino, California, in 1949. Hamburgers were the main item on its menu. People liked the restaurants fast-service. By the 1960's there were many McDonald's restaurants. McDonald's was a part of nearly every community in the United States. There were also other fast-food restaurants that sold hamburgers. McDonald's alone sold millions of hamburgers a year.
Today, of course, there are McDonald's restaurants around the world. The food they serve is considered typically American. And, although McDonald's has expanded its menu, the main item on that menu is - as always - the hamburgers. (H04); Listen to the text and circle the letter of the best answer.

About American's Food
American food is part British, part Italian, part German, part Mexican, part Chinese, part Ukrainian... When people from other countries came to live the USA, they brought different cooking traditions. Some of then opened restaurants and food stores, and today Americans enjoy food all over the words.
The USA is famous for "fast food". The first food restaurants served hamburgers, but now they serve other kinds of food as well. Many fast food restaurants have a drive-in section. Here you can order and pick up your food without even getting out of your car! Inside there is a "salad bar", where you can help yourself to as much salad as you want.
Americans eat out a lot, and when they go to a restaurant, they don't expect to be hungry afterwards. Most restaurants will put a lot of food on your plate - sometimes it can too much. But if you can't finish it all, don't worry: the waiter will bring you a "doggy bag" and you can take it home with you.
Topic: At the table
Preparation and materials: handouts, tape-recorder

Aims and objectives:
1. Warm up
The teacher tells the students they are now ready to go to eat out and in this respect they have to revise the rules of proper table behavior. The students present their rules of behavior.
a) Vocabulary and socio-cultural competence. The teacher asks if the students have any experience of eating out and elicits the names of restaurants attended. Then those restaurants are categorized in a class discussion (target answer to get fast food and regular restaurants). The teacher asks to find the basic difference (if the students feel trouble finding necessary words, they may use heir native language to a certain extent. The main issue is that everybody understood the difference). After the teacher is sure everybody has got the idea, he introduces the new vocabulary: waiter, waitress, bill, pay, order, service, counter, tip by presenting two short dialogues that take place in the two types of restaurants:
A. Can I help you? B. Yes, please. A double cheeseburger, middle fries, ketchup and a large Coke. A. Good. Eating here ? B. Yes. A: That's 10.25. B. Here you are. A. Thank you. Your 15, and this is your 4.75 change. And this is your order. Enjoy your meal. B. Thanks. Do I have to leave any tip? A. No, thank you. We do not get tips in " fast food places.
A. Good evening. What would you like to have today? B. What's your special
today? A. Chicken noodles. B. OK, then let's start with green salad. A. Dressing?
^ ? B. Regular, please. A. Sure. Your order will be ready in just a few minutes.
The students discuss the difference between the two restaurants and give the examples from their own experience.
b) Role play. The teacher prepares a set of cards for the students who will act as customers with the types of food to order in a fast food place. Other cards are blank, those who get them will act as shop-assistants. It may be a good idea to actually replicate McDonald's with a lot of shop-assistants serving a lot of customers. The idea is to practice not only the vocabulary but also the cultural awareness. For this the teacher should explain that-in the United States unlike Ukraine dressings like ketchup, mayo and mustard go free and that they serve fried onion rings as a variant of siding to be taken with a sandwich.

Closure. Evaluation. Comments
Tea in England is a suitable occasion for social intercourse, when people often come in for over their cup of tea. There are two kinds of tea, "afternoon tea" and "high tea".
"Afternoon tea" takes place between three-thirty and four-thirty and consists of tea; bread, butter and jam, followed by cakes and biscuits. "High tea", however, is a substantial meal and eaten between five-thirty and six- thirty by families which do not usually have a late dinner. In a well-to-do family it will consist of ham or tongue and tomatoes and salad, or a kipper, tinned salmon, with strong tea, bread and butter, followed by stewed fruit, or tinned pears, apricots or pine-apple with cream or custard and cake.
Tea making in England is an art. The hostess first of all rinses the teapot with boiling water (this is called "warming the pot") before adding four or five teaspoonfuls of tea. The amount of tea varies, of course, according to the number of people present. The pot is then filled with boiling and covered by a tea-cosy to allow the tea to infuse for five minutes. English people seldom put lemon juice or rum in their tea, usually they have it with milk.
Britons are the world's greatest tea drinkers. They drink a quarter of all the tea grown in the world each year. Many of them drink it at least eight different occasions during the day. They drink it between meals and at meals. They drink it early-morning tea in bed. Some early-morning tea-drinkers have automatic tea-making machines connected to their alarm clocks.
