Ex. 1. Listen and look. – Послушай и посмотри.
This is a picture of a tropical rain forest. The weather in the tropics is very hot and wet. The trees in the rain forest grow very tall. There are lots of different kinds of trees. Some trees are seventy metres tall.
The floor of the rain forest is quite dark. There are a lot of dead leaves there, but not many green plants.
The leaves at the top of the trees are very thick. They make a canopy. Lots of animals and birds live in the canopy. Smaller plants, like orchids, live on the tree trunks in the canopy. Smaller plants and new trees grow by the side of the rivers. When a tree falls down, new plants can grow in the space. Once there were a lot of rain forests. Now there aren’t many. They are disappearing quickly.
