Слушаем детскую классику. The Secret Garden. Chapter 1

О романе «The Secret Garden».

The Secret Garden is a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It was initially published in serial format starting in the autumn of 1910, and was first published in its entirety in 1911. It is now one of Burnett’s most popular novels, and is considered to be a classic of English children’s literature. Several stage and film adaptations have been produced.

Моей идеей было включение глав из романа в курс на сайте ДО. Немного поразмыслив, я решила отказаться от идеи и разместить то, что уже создано (частично или полностью) на блоге. Так бывает, что нечаянно изобретаешь уже кем-то изобретённый велосипед, а это не очень интересно (задания к «Таинственному саду» есть у Афанасьевой и у одного польского автора). Может есть ещё разработки, поэтому я и называю свою работу изобретением велосипеда.

Отличие данных аудиозаписей — их аутентичность и неадаптированность и, соответственно, разработки также авторские, то есть мои. Где-то потрудилась больше, где-то меньше — увидите по ходу публикаций. Аудио — public domain, текст можно найти на сайте проекта Гутенберг.

Так как задания готовились для Moodle, возможно кое-что вам придётся переделать самостоятельно.

В первом задании первой главы первый ответ из трёх правильный. Иногда в заданиях сохранялась орфография оригинального текста, не считайте за ошибку или опечатку (any one). Если где-то не хватает задания — или потерялось на одном из компьютеров или будет добавлено позже.
