НАПАДЕНИЕ С НОЖОМ В РЕДИНГЕ (учебный текст на английском языке)



Вчера, в субботу, в Рединге, британское графство Беркшир, в результате нападения с ножом погибли три человека, ещё трое получили ранения.
По подозрению в нападении был задержан 25-летний Ливиец.
Полиция квалифицирует инцидент как теракт.


The town of Reading is in the English county of Berkshire in the south of England.

First, we need to learn to pronounce these place-names – Reading and Berkshire:


  • Reading [ˈrɛdɪŋ] = red-ing

  • Berkshire [`bɑːkʃɪə] / [`bɑːkʃə] = `barkshər / `barksheer


See? The place-name Reading is not pronounced as the word reading in She is reading a book. And the place-name Berkshire starts with bark as in Dogs start to bark at nightfall in the neighbour’s back yard.

And now to the news itself.
