Краткий грамматический комментарий
Герундий представляет собой неличную глагольную форму, выражающую название действия и обладающую как свойствами существительного, так и свойствами глагола. В русском языке соответствующая форма отсутствует.
Обладая свойствами существительного, герундий может служить в предложении:
Reading is her favourite occupation Чтение – ее любимое занятие.
Именной частью составного сказуемого:
Her greatest pleasure is reading Ее самое большое удовольствие –
Частью составного глагольного сказуемого:
He finished reading the book. Он кончил читать книгу.
I remember reading it. Я помню, что читал это.
Предложным косвенным дополнением:
I am fond of reading. Я люблю чтение (читать)
I had the pleasure of reading Я имел удовольствие прочесть
In the newspaper of your success . в газете о вашем успехе.
After reading the letter I put После того как я прочел письмо (прочитав
It into the drawer. письмо), я положил его в ящик стола.
Как и существительное, герундий может сочетаться с предлогами и определяться притяжательным местоимением или существительным в притяжательном падеже:
I think of going to the south Я думаю поехать на юг осенью.
In the autumn. Глагольные свойства герундия выражаются в следующем:
Герундий может иметь прямое дополнение:
I remember reading this book. Я помню, что читал эту книгу.
Герундий может определяться наречием:
He likes reading aloud. Он любит читать вслух.
Герундий имеет формы времени и залога:
Active Passive Indefinite
Having read Being read
Having been read В русском языке нет форм, соответствующих формам герундия, ввиду чего изолированно, вне предложения, они не могут быть переведены на русский язык.
Indefinite Gerund Active, однако, по своему значению приближается к русскому отглагольному существительному: reading чтение, smoking курение, waiting ожидание.
Причастие (The Participle)
Причастие в английском языке представляет собой неличную глагольную форму, которая наряду со свойствами глагола имеет свойства прилагательного или наречия.
Обладая свойствами прилагательного, причастие служит определением к существительному. В этой функции оно соответствует русскому причастию:
A broken cup lay on the table. Разбитая чашка лежала на столе.
Обладая свойствами наречия, причастие служит обстоятельством, определяющим действие, выраженное сказуемым. В этой функции оно соответствует русскому деепричастию:
He sat at the table thinking. Он сидел у стола задумавшись.
Обладая свойствами глагола, причастие
а) может иметь дополнение:
Signing the letter the manager asked the secretary to send it off at once. Подписав письмо, заведующий попросил секретаря отправить его немедленно.
б) может определяться наречием:
Packing his things quickly, he hurried to the station. Быстро упаковав свои вещи, он поспешил на вокзал.
в) имеет формы времени и залога.
Переходные глаголы имеют две формы причастия действительного залога и три формы причастия страдательного залога:
Past Perfect Active Passive
Having asked Being asked
Having been asked
Непереходные глаголы имеют три формы причастия действительного залога:
Used to и would для выражения повторяющихся
действий в прошлом
Для выражения повторяющихся действий или состояния в прошлом употребляется сочетание used to с инфинитивом, при этом оно служит для противопоставления прошлого настоящему.
The singer doesn’t sing as he used to any more. Этот певец не поет теперь, как певал раньше.
Для выражения повторяющихся действий в прошлом употребляется также сочетание глагола would с инфинитивом и без частицы to, которое, в отличие от сочетания с used to, обозначает действие, происходившее время от времени, без противопоставления его настоящему моменту. Would не употребляется для выражения состояния в прошлом ( т.е. не сочетается с глаголом to be).
She would walk to the station when the weather was fine. Она, бывало, ходила на станцию пешком, когда погода была хорошая.

Read the article below and match the person, A, B or C to the sentences 1–5.A Ms BakerB Mr MacFaerne C Mr Podolski(1) Foxes are a nuisance.
(2) Areas originally occupied by foxes had been taken over for housing.
(3) Foxes are excellent at pest control.
(4) Foxes have the habit of tipping rubbish bins over.
(5) It’s the action of people that caused the crocodiles to appear in gardens in Florida.
I’m writing in response to the recent radio programme you had about urban foxes. I listened to the arguments of the two guests – Jean Baker and Tom MacFaerne – you had on your programme and, to be perfectly honest, it just made me angry. Frankly, Mr MacFaerne didn’t help the cause of foxes with his behaviour and he also failed to make some of the most important points. Ms Baker kept on going on about how the foxes were a nuisance and she seemed to be saying that the foxes were moving into the cities because they liked it there. I may be wrong, but I think that over the past thirty years it is far more likely that we have built houses in the areas where the foxes used to live rather than the foxes deciding to move to the cities!
Would Ms Baker build her house near an area where crocodiles lived? Of course, that’s exactly what’s happened in Florida and the consequences are that people now have crocodiles in their gardens, but whose fault is that? As far as I’m concerned, what’s happening here with foxes is exactly the same, except that foxes are much less aggressive. As for the foxes tipping rubbish bins over, what does she expect? Firstly, foxes are very inquisitive animals and, secondly, because we’re destroying their natural habitat we are also killing the animals they usually eat.
People like myself who put out food in our gardens for the foxes not only get the pleasure of seeing these lovely animals but also find that they don’t go poking their noses into our rubbish. Personally, I would much prefer a fox in my garden rather than other urban animals like rats. As Mr MacFaerne pointed out, foxes are very good at keeping the number of rats and other pests under control. There is also no point trying to control the number of foxes as they control their own numbers naturally.
Finally, if you ask me what we should be controlling isn’t the fox population but rather the human population. We should stop building in the countryside and then complaining when the animals that already live there come into our gardens and our houses.

ReadingRead the article below and answer these questions.
(1) Which company was founded on recycling junk?
(2) Which word drives the prices up in the tour industry?
(3) Why is it difficult to find a genuine green holiday?
(4) What is the main advantage of shopping at The Natural Store?
(5) According to the text, why should people buy eco-friendly products?
Being green has never been easier. In the past, if you wanted to buy things that were environmentally friendly it could be really difficult. You would often spend hours going from one shop to another, which, if you used your car, would make the whole exercise pointless. But, now thanks to the internet and an increased awareness that buying green doesn’t mean having to spend a fortune, it’s much easier to ‘eco-shop’.
Companies like Lost and Found in London are leading the way when it comes to recycling our junk. Set up by Becky Oldfield, the company specializes in making furniture and covers. One of the key things that Lost and Found do is to source their materials locally. Becky will go round to local companies and get whatever they are throwing away and use these things in her products.
Meanwhile, Electra Gillies has set up her own eco-tourism company. She used to work as a journalist for a national newspaper and realized that there was a demand for ‘green holidays’. To ensure that her holidays really are green she goes out and visits every place she advertises. Unfortunately, this is necessary as there is no international eco-standard and companies often realize that if they use the word ‘green’ they can charge more for the same thing. One of the best things as far as Electra is concerned is that most of the places she has chosen use renewable energy, employ local staff and therefore re-invest in the local economy.
Finally, Rachel Rogers has started her own online department store, thenaturalstore.co.uk. The idea for The Natural Store came from the fact that Rachel was frustrated by having to shop at lots of different places to buy what she wanted. She thought that it would be good to start a shop where you could buy Fairtrade products, organic food, environmentally friendly cosmetics and ethical clothing all in one place. Although things cost a bit more it is worth it because the result is a cleaner planet.
So, the next time you are thinking about the environment and you’d actually like to do something positive, check out the options that are available. You’ll be surprised just how easy it is to be green.

Read the article below and answer the questions.
(1) What were some early maps made from?
(2) Who used the sky to help them draw maps?
(3) Apart from travel information, what did some early maps show?
(4) What information was often missing in old maps?
(5) What is special about McArthur’s map?
Throughout history people have used maps, but these maps have not always been drawn on paper. In fact, some of the earliest maps were made on pieces of stone or sometimes simply by drawing a map on the ground to show travellers the way to go. The oldest maps that we still have today date back 4,000 years or so. A map is basically a kind of picture of an area and is designed to help people find their way from one place to another. However, to do this, it is necessary to know where you are starting from. The ancient Greeks invented a geographical grid using the stars as their starting points. They drew lines going from North to South – Longitude and lines going East to West – Latitude. Using these lines, it was possible to work out where you were and look at where you wanted to go on the map.
The use of stars to help navigate has long been known and so it should not come as a surprise to learn that
map-making relied heavily on the stars to help determine location. The Greeks were so fascinated by the night sky that they made as many maps of the skies as they did of the land around them.
Of course, maps can show far more than simple geographical features. Ancient maps often included drawings of people and animals to show who or what lived in a particular location. Some maps have amazing pictures of mythical creatures, like dragons or people with two heads. Maps like these were used not only to show locations but also to give people some idea of what they might find there – and often warn people of dangers.
Many old maps (and even some today) have large blank areas. In fact, many of the maps from the 15th and 16th centuries show the coastlines of countries and continents in detail, but very little of the inland areas. Nowadays, with the use of satellite technology, we have comprehensive maps of even the most remote areas of the world.
Of course maps can now show who owns the land, give population, economic or political information, as well as including physical features such as mountains, lakes, rivers and roads. Many maps of the world have the UK and Europe in the centre of the map. This is partly because the line of zero degrees longitude goes through Greenwich in London. However, there are maps that show the USA or China at the centre of the map. And, there is a map designed by Stuart McArthur, an Australian, that not only has Australia in the centre but also has the South Pole at the top of the map and the North Pole at the bottom. Many people, when they first see this map, think that it is upside down and try to turn it round. Of course, it isn’t upside down at all – it is simply a different perspective of the world.
