4. Граматика (вживання артиклів з географічними назвами, повторіть правила)
I hope, you remember when you should use the definite article the with geographical names (oceans, seas, rivers, mountain ranges, island groups).
Remember to use the article where necessary. If the name of the state consists of several words, it is used with the article “the”: The United Kingdom. Great Britain is the name of an island, that’s why it is used without an article.
So, we use the article ‘the’ with:
the chains of mountains;
the channels, rivers, seas, oceans;
We do not use the article with:
the names of the mountains;
the names of the lakes;
the names of the islands.

The United Kingdom, the British Isles and England
The United Kingdom (or Great Britain) is situated on the British Isles. The British Isles consist of two large islands, Great Britain and Ireland, and about five thousand small islands. Their total area is over 244.000 square kilometres.
The United Kingdom is made up of four countries: England, Wales, Scotland (on the island of Great Britain), and Northern Ireland (on the island of Ireland). Their capitals are London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and Belfast respectively. The capital of the UK is London.
The British Isles are separated from the European continent by the North Sea and the English Channel. The western coast of Great Britain is washed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea.
The surface of the British Isles varies very much. The north of Scotland is mountainous and is called the Highlands, while the south, which has beautiful valleys and plains, is called the Lowlands. The north and west of England are mountainous, but all the rest cast, centre, and south-east — is a vast plain. Mountains are not \ ei \ high. Ben Nevis in Scotland is the highest mountain (1.343 m).
There are a lot of rivers in Great Britain, hut they are not very long. The Severn is the longest river, while the Thames is the deepest one.
