Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! We’re glad to see you today at our show. II. Hello! Our today’s programme is dedicated to the great holiday of all people who are in love – St. Valentine’s Day. I. “If you want to be loved, then love,” – wrote Robert Bills. That’s why our show will be full of laugh and jokes, songs and dances, and, of course, love, love, love… II. We’re sure it will be interesting to talk to our audience in the studio and to listen to what they know about this day. An interview with the audience. I. Well, we’ve heard your opinions. And let’s listen to our experts. What can they tell us about this wonderful holiday? You’re welcome. Experts. 1. We’ll try to tell you in brief about the history of this holiday. It was broughtto Britain by the Romans, who used to celebrate the return of spring at the beginning of February. 2. But when Christianity arrived the Christians named the 14-th of FebruarySt. Valentine’s Day. It became a tradition of hopeful lovers to send each other gifts. Then cards replaced gifts. 1. Valentines often show a Cupid with an arrow. Cupid, also called Eros, was an ancient Roman god of love. Theornaments that decorate valentines are the symbols of love and friendship and have their special meaning. A ribbon means “You are tied up” or “You are my girl”. Rice or a ring mean a wedding.
  2. 2. 2. In the early 19-th century there was a fashion for comic valentine cards, and people even tried to offend each other with comic poems. 1. Times have changed and now we send our cards only to congratulate each other and to remind people about our love and friendship. II. Our experts have told us about the valentine cards containing words of love and affection. And we want you to make your valentines. I. Take some paper, take the scissors, Cut a heart and then design. Write a message in the middle: “Will you be my Valentine?” II. We need six participants who’ll compete in making the best valentine cards. You may use everything you see here, on the table. You’ll have five minutes to be ready. Try to be not only quick, but original. A contest: “The best valentine card”. I. And while our valentines are being made let’s listen to the greetings which can be found in our cards. Valentine cards’ poems. *** I have a little valentine That someone sent to me, It’s pink and white and red and blue And pretty as can be. Forget-me-nots are round the edge, And tiny roses too; And such a lovely *** Modest as a violet, as a rosebud sweet That’s the kind of little girl people like to meet. Bright as is a diamond, pure as any pearl, Everyone rejoices in such a little girl. Happy as a robin, gentle as a dove,
  3. 3. piece of lace, The very palest blue. And in the center there’s a heart As red as red can be! And on its written all in gold: “To you with love from me”. That’s the kind of little girl everyone will love. Fly away and seek her, little song of mine, For I choose that very girl as my Valentine. *** My pretty angel, how are you? Are you fine? I want you always to be mine. My pretty angel, you’ve broken my heart, So we cannot be apart. My pretty angel, you’re my first real love, And I feel myself somewhere above! My pretty angel, please tell me why I cannot watch you without a cry… II. Oh! I consider poetry to be the best way of expressing our feelings. I’d like to hear one more poem about love written by Robert Burns. “She Walks in Beauty” (+ translation). She walks in Beauty like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which Heaven to gaudy day denies. Она идет во всей красе – Светла, как ночь ее страны. Вся глубь небес и звезды все В ее очах заключены. Как солнце в утренней росе, Но только мраком смягчены.
  4. 4. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace. Which waves in every raven tress Or softly lightens o’er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling place. And on this cheek, and o’er this brow So soft, so calm, yet eloquent The smiles that win, the tints that glow But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent! Прибавить луч иль тень отнять – И будет уж совсем не та Волос агатовая прядь, Не те глаза, не те уста. И лоб, где помыслов печать Так безупречна, так чиста. И этот взгляд, и цвет ланит, И легкий смех, как всплеск морской, Все в ней о мире говорит. Она в душе хранит покой. И если счастье подарит, То самой щедрою рукой! I. Are our valentine cards ready? We’ll define the winner by your applause! II. I’m not a poet and will never be able to rhyme the lines. But love can be expressed in a quite different way. For example, a dance. A dance. I. It was perfect! And can our guests express their feelings without words? It must be rather difficult. II. Everybody knows that people who’re in love understand each other without long phrases and beautiful utterances. We need three boys and three girls now. I. Your task is to convince these girls that they are really appreciated by you without any word. Show your feelings but keep silent! A contest: Showing feelings without words. II. It was great! Of course, love doesn’t need words at all! I. I can’t agree with you. Everyone needs warm pleasant words which are usually called compliments. Let’s try to compete in making them.
  5. 5. II. Two boys and two girls are welcome. Our gentlemen are to make one step in the direction of their ladies giving a compliment. They will do it in turn and the main task is not to repeat the words which have been said already. A contest: Compliments. I. Oh, yes. Nobody will ever convince me that there’s something more simple and convenient to express our love than words. They always help us. II. Really? Just look at this! Sketches (anecdotes). 1. - No dinner ready! I’m going to a restaurant! - Couldn’t you wait for a few minutes? - Will it be ready then? - No, it won’t. But I’ll be ready myself to go with you! 2. - Give me a kiss, darling! - No, no. My mother is againstkissing! - But, my dear, I don’t wantto kiss your mother! 3. - Hi, Jane! - Hi! - Is your sister waiting for me? - Yes, she’s really waiting. - How do you know? - She’s gone out. 4. - You say I’m the first model you ever kissed? - Yes. - And how manymodels have you had before me?
  6. 6. - Four. An apple, two orangesand a vase of flowers. I. Maybe you’re right and moreover I don’t want to argue with you today. Let’s have a short rest and listen to a charming song. “Love Story” II. What a wonderful song! My legs are dancing even without my wish. I. Do you really want to dance? There’s nothing simpler. And I suppose our guests will do it with pleasure either. II. We need three pairs who are ready to compete in dancing. I. Dancing is a real art. Our pairs will dance on these newspapers, but they should do it very carefully in order not to step on the floor. II. Remember! Dance on papers only! No floor! You can’t touch it! A contest: A dance on the newspapers. I. Thank you for your dancing. And have you heard that love is blind? II. You’ve hit the nail on the head. I can only add that it can be strange. Just listen! “A Pair” They walked in the lane together, The sky was covered with the stars, They reached the gate in silence, He lifted down the bars. She neither smiled nor thanked him Because she knew not how, For he was just a farmer’s boy And she – the farmer’s cow. II. So, we’ve discussed different aspects of love, but we must never forget that such feelings as greed, envy, jealousy can ruin our passion. I. That’s why our main task is to protect our feelings. “There is only one happiness in life, to love and to be loved,” – wrote George Sand. II. Love each other with whole hearts and souls, help each other any time your friends need your support.
  7. 7. I. Be happy and smile! And we want to finish our today’s programme with a song. Let’s sing together! “My Bonny” II. Good-bye to you now! I. And you’re welcome to our dancing party. Good-bye!
