Т.: Good morning! I’m sure you know this song. Do you like it? I think it is eternal problem: money, the shortage of money. If only we had enough money! Today we are going to speak about money, not only about dollars and pounds, but about our “wooden” roubles too. Today we’ll learn some new facts from the history of money and we’ll try to answer some very important and controversial questions: “Does money really make the world go round? Can money make us happier?”. We’ll revise some grammar material.

T.: People work for money, they sometimes make friends for money, they love, live and die, for money. Why does money rule the world, why do people need money? Where can we get it and spend it. These are the questions everyone would like to answer. First of all I’d like you to answer some my questions:

T.: Money is a very important thing for people, so there are a lot of proverbs and sayings about it. You can see some proverbs written on dollar bills, but their beginnings and endings are written on the different parts. Try to match them. Find Russian equivalents.

Money has – no smell. Деньги не пахнут.

Muck and money – go together. Грязь и деньги ходят рядом.

Lend your money – and lose your friend. Хочешь потерять друга, одолжи ему деньги.

Time is – money. Время – деньги.

It is time to check up your grammar.
Fill in the gaps using the past tense of verbs from the box.
* buy *sell *win *lose *waste *pay *find *cost *spend *give
1. My car was five years old, so I ____ it and ____ a new one.

2. It was very sad when I ____ my watch in the street. It was a present from my wife and it _____ her a lot of money. Fortunately, somebody ____ it the next day and took it to a Police Station.

3. I ____ over ₤ 2.000 for my computer, but it isn’t worth very much now.

4. My father ____ me ₤50 last week but I ____ most of it on a ticket for a concert on Friday.

5. Last week somebody ____ ₤1000 in a game on TV. It was incredibly exciting.

6. I’m afraid I ____ my money on those CDs because I never play them.

Let’s play a little. The game is called “Chains of events”. Use the second conditional and don’t forget that you should start your own sentence from the previous one.

You should start your chain of events with the words:

If I were a millionaire… I would buy a lottery ticket

If I won I million dollars in a I would buy an Island


If I bought an Island… I would build a big house there

If I built a big house… I would have parties every day

If I had parties every day… I would invite all my friends

If I invited all my friends… I would spend all my money.

Thank you!

And now let’s discuss a little. Try to give your answers to my questions.


  • Is it possible to have too much money?

  • Do you agree that having a lot of money makes you free?

  • What can’t money buy?

  • Do you agree that muck and money go together?

  • Does money really make the world go round?

  • Can money make us happier?

It’s time to come to the conclusion. Let’s make a list of advantages and disadvantages of money.

Advantages of money Disadvantages of money
You can buy whatever you want You are afraid to lose your money

You can travel all over the world Everybody asks you to lend money

You needn’t work It’s difficult to find real friends

You can always help

Your relatives and friends
And now, imagine you are allowed to have some gifts, which you think are the most important. Choose three gifts, which you think are the most important.

  • good health

  • plenty of money

  • a nice house

  • a brilliant mind

  • an attractive face

  • lots of friends

  • a good job

  • a fast car

  • a happy marriage

  • a long life

  • an artistic talent

The phrases may help:

I think the most important thing in life is…

The one thing I’d like to have is…

So we can make a conclusion that money is not on the first place.
I have a question which may seem surprising. Do you like poetry? Do you think it’s difficult to write poems? Let’s do it together.
If the weather isn’t sunny

So you’ve got too little (money)

When you travel England around

Then you need not rouble, but (pound)

If you fly to system solar,

You will surely need (a dollar).

Of you course, it’s a joke. This poem is not serious at all. But the topic of our today’s conversation was rather serious.

What have we learned at the lesson? (учащиеся перечисляют). Учащиеся отвечают на вопросы: Does money really make the world go round? Can money make us happier?

Your homework is to put the words from the box in the correct places in the sentences below.
*coins *cash *currency *money
