Hello! I’m happy to see you again.teach3

This year we’ll learn a lot of new things about the English-speaking countries.

Some of them are these here. Look at the map:

United Kingdom, Great Britain or England?

Sometimes it’s a bit confusing, but the maps can help you:

Geographically, we are in the British Isles.

Politically, we have the United Kingdom with

4 different nations.

Their citizens all speak English, but some have their own language and all of them have their own flag.

The union of these flags has a very curious name –  the Union Jack.

 

 

 

As for the name Great Britain, it refers tobrit

the 3 nations in the largest island.
