Country that I want to visit.
I haven't been to Great Britain yet, & I'd like to visit this country very much, because I like the English language, & I' m curious to learn about everyday life of the people who speak this beautiful language, & just see the sights. Here's what I know about this country so far. The full official name of the country is the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland. It is a constitutional monarchy - the nominal head of state is Queen Elizabeth the Second, but the real law-making body is the Parliament, consisting of two Chambers, the House of Commons & the House of Lords. The royal family is preserved as a kind of a tourist attraction. The country is situated on the British Isles, which lie off the north-west of Europe. They are separated from the continent by the English Channel, better known by its French name - La Manche. Now, there is a tunnel under the Channel, efficiently binding Great Britain & the continent. The climate is rather mild, influenced by the Gulf Stream, & famous English lawns & gardens are of some special shade of green. The UK is a very highly developed industrial country, with such branches of industry as ship-building, manufacturing of textiles, machinery, electrical & electronic equipment, & many others. The population of the UK is about 55 million people . There are two major political parties in the UK, Labour & Conservative. The Conservative are in office now. I know a lot more about the UK, but this information has been taken from books & mass media. I'd like to visit the country & see everything for myself.
