Meeting people
Here are the words and phrases which are commonly used when we meet people. Read and memorize them.
GreetingsTwo friends meeting
Friends often say "Hi" to each other. Then they often ask a general question, such as "How are you?" or "How are things?" or "How's life?"
The reply to this question is normally positive.
"Fine thanks, and you?"
"Fine thanks, what about yourself?"
"Not bad." Or "Can't complain."
Greeting people you don't know
You can use "Hello" with people you don't know, but a more formal greeting is "Good morning / afternoon / evening."
The other person normally replies with the same greeting as you have used and then makes polite conversation, such as "How was your trip?" or "Did you find our office easily?"
Introducing yourself
At an informal party
"Hello, I'm Maria." Or "Hello, my name's Maria."
The reply could be:
"Hi, I'm Sarah." Or "Hello Maria, I'm Sarah." Or "Nice to meet you, I'm Sarah."
At work-related events
"I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Maria, from [email protected]"
Or, "Let me introduce myself. I'm Maria from [email protected]"
The reply could be:
"Nice to meet you. I'm Peter Mitchell, from Mitchell Creations."
"Pleased to meet you. I'm Peter Mitchell, from Mitchell Creations."
"How do you do? I'm Peter Mitchell from Mitchell Creations."
Introducing other people

Introducing a friend to a work colleague
"Sarah, have you met my colleague John?"
"Sarah, I'd like you to meet my colleague John."
Sarah says:
"Pleased to meet you, John." Or "Nice to meet you, John."
John could say:
"Nice to meet you too, Sarah." Or "Hello, Sarah."
Introducing clients
"Mr Mitchell, I'd like to introduce you to my manager, Henry Lewis."
Mr Mitchell could then say:
"How do you do?" and Henry Lewis also says "How do you do?"
Or Mr Mitchell could say:
"Pleased to meet you." Or "Good to meet you."
Speaking Tip
"How do you do?" is quite formal for British English speakers and the reply to this question is to repeat the phrase, "How do you do?" (as strange as that may sound!)
At a more informal party
When you introduce two of your friends to each other, you can simply say, "John, this is Sarah."
Cultural considerations
At work, one person may have higher status – your boss, or a client, for example. It's polite to address them as Mr / Ms until the situation becomes more informal.
If someone says, "Please call me (Henry)", you know you can use first names. If someone uses your first name, you can use their first name too.
People in European and English-speaking cultures often shake hands when they meet someone for the first time.
* Don't forget to smile! :-)

The prospective employee
264795631190Moira Kelly has just graduated from university and wants to train for a career in accountancy. She has applied to Granville, Thompson and Styles* and has been invited to an
interview for one of two graduate trainee posts. Competition is tough, and Moira is one
of only six candidates to reach this stage. There are three people on the interview panel: Jim Granville, Andrea Bradshaw and Jane Cove.

Jane: Hello Moira. Thank you for taking the time to comeand see us again. Before we go any further, I'd like tointroduce everyone here. Jim is the firm's senior partner,Andrea has just qualified and I'm responsible for HumanResources. I'll hand over to Jim first.
Jim: I'd like to repeat the welcome. We will use this opportunity to ask you more about the information you've provided on your CV and to answer any questions that you may have for us. My first question is to ask what you know about our firm.
Moira: I saw your brochure in the university careers centre and was impressed by what I read. 1 know you have some high-profile clients such as Elecom pic* and Stylehouse* and that your graduate scheme has been running fjor nearly twenty years. I did talk to a couple of the big firms in February but your scheme struck me as the most suitable.
Andrea: Can you tell us what you find particularly attractive?
Moira: I like the idea of working for a smaller partnership as I feel it would give me a wider range of experience. I would like to specialise later, perhaps in the area of taxation
Jane: Where do you see yourself in five years' time?
Moira: I would like to see myself progressing up the career ladder, perhaps as a junior partner.
Jim: What particular skills have you acquired that you'll bring to our firm?
Moira: I'm good at detail and have developed a flair for tracking down inconsistencies. 1 also have good listening skills which 1 consider to be important in accountancy
The questions continue for another thirty minutes.
Jane: Do you have any questions for us, Moira?
Moira: Yes, I would like to know when you expect to be making
your decision.
Jane: We're seeing all the candidates today and will be in a
position to make a decision tomorrow. You'll hear from
me by Friday whether you have been successful or not.
Moira: That's great. I will be back at my parents' address from
Sunday if you need to contact me there.

Read the text.
With the development of industry, technology, trade and economic ties among the countries and ordinary people a great volume of business is done by mail. It is true that the telephone, telegraph, telex and fax speed up transaction , but they also increase expenses to such an extent that practical businessmen and economic people use this modern means of communication only for matters requiring immediate action or for messages which can be expressed briefly.
Business letters concern us in our daily living, especially those of us who live abroad and deal with foreigners.
People write business letters in many situations: finalizing contracts, booking a seat in an airplane, reserving hotel accommodation, booking theatre tickets, writing order-letters, letters of inquiry, claim letters (letters of complaint), cover letters, letters of confirmation and letters of guarantee.
A business letter, like a friendly or social letter, should make a favorable impression. In order that a letter may create this impression, it should be neatly written or typed, properly spaced on the page and correctly folded in the invelope.
The Parts of a Business Letter
The basic outline for a business letter is that of any letter: the heading, the inside address, the salutation, the body of the letter, the complimentary close and the signature. If you forget something you mean to say in the letter, put it in a PS at the bottom of the page.

Payment will be made in US Dollars. We are ready to open a confirmed and irrevocable Letter of Credit in England.
We would like to discuss the question of discount as well. We could agree for a 10% quantity discount with one provision.Any further orders we place within a one year period would receive at least the same discount.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ralph:
It’s wonderful news that you’ve decided to give us at Citadel Pigments your business. I appreciate all the time you’ve taken over the past several months to consider us and whether our products and people could meet your company’s needs. I’m thrilled that you’ve chosen us. Thanks for being our advocate throughout the decision-making process.
Now that it’s clear we’ll be working together, I’d like to set up a meeting with you and anyone else at Pittsburgh Quality Paints who’s likely to be involved in the relationship with us. Of course, working with you directly will be great, but we’re also realistic that your day-to-day responsibilities as COO will demand a great deal of your attention. I’d like to get to know all the other people at your company who will be making decisions. It will be helpful to meet some of the personalities behind the squares on your organizational chart.
Perhaps you and I can meet over coffee sometime next week to talk about the various people who should be involved in the larger meeting I’ve proposed. I’ll give your office a call to set up a time.
Once again, thank you for choosing to do business with us. I’m looking forward to a rich and rewarding partnership.

Dear Paul:
As you will probably know, last week my chief fire loss control engineer, John Maxwell, visited 5 locations in France accompanied by Alain Berger and later had discussions with Marc Roget and Peter Barton.
My purpose in writing to you is first to say how pleased we are with the fire engineering service we receive from your company. The relationship with Alain Berger is first class and John Maxwell is able to obtain very good results indeed.
I wonder whether you would be kind enough to pass on our thanks to Marc Roget and Alain Berger for the very good work they are providing in fire loss control.
I look forward to renewing our acquaintance in the future.
Very truly yours,_______M.C. Burns

II.Study the examples of business letters given above and write a letter of your own.
British Company Management
Read and translate the text.
The management of the company is called the Board of Directors (not Managers) headed by the Chairman (= the President Am.).
There is usually a Managing Director and in the case of big companies there may be several Joint Managing Directors.
A Manager in British companies is the person who is head of a department — Sales, Export, Works (Production), Staff, etc.
So there are Sales Managers, Export Managers, Works (Production) Managers, Staff Managers, etc.
A general Manager has managers, working under his control, and receives his instructions from the Managing Director.
By British Company Law a limited company (public or private) must have a Company Secretary whose duties are manifold.
First he is the clerk to the Directors: he is to keep Registers of Directors and Members, arrange for proceedings at Director's and shareholder's meetings, prepare notices for the calling of these meetings, attend them and advise directors at board meetings on the legal, accounting and tax implications of any proposed business move as well as keep minutes and write reports (the minutes of a meeting are usually concise records of resolutions or decisions reached, and the reports are more extensive and give details of discussions, arguments for or against the resolutions, and so on).
Second he represents his company "and in this capacity he supervises the working of the staff and the maintenance of staff records (if there-is no special staff manager), finally he is often responsible for the accounting and handling of contracts. Thus he is the link between the company and the members, between the company and the staff and between the company and the public.
The Company Secretary must be a properly qualified person, and be able to fulfil his routine duties well.
He is supposed to have training in company law, accountancy and many other subjects. He is expected to be a part-lawyer, part-economist, part-administrator and part-accountant.
But it takes a good deal more than professional qualifications to make a good company secretary: "he must be businessman and humanitarian, lawyer and visionary" (as one of the English newspapers puts it).

V. Read the dialogue between Personal Manager and a group of new secretaries:
P.M.: Good morning, I'd like to welcome you to our organization. Now you all know which departments you are going to, but before you go off I am going to tell you a little bit about us and about the rules and regulations which we try to adhere to. And the reason why we have these rules is that they help us all to know what we can do, what we must do, and what we shouldn't do — and in the long run make this a happy place to work.
S.: And what can you tell us about flextime system?
P.M.: First of all the flextime system. Most of you can choose what time you are going to start and finish. However,
you must all be here for core time which is from 10 till 3. ... You should all work for a minimum of 37 hours a week and not more than 41 hours. If you look at your job descriptions you'll see that you should put in an average of 38 hours a week. This means you can put in up to an extra 2 hours per week. However,-at the end of a month you shouldn't have more than 10 hours overtime, because only 10 hours can be claimed. Is that clear? …
S.: We would like also know about daily working hours.
P.M.: As far as your daily working hours are concerned, you . : should tell the departmental heads on the Friday, what times you are going to start the following week. You needn't start each day at the same time, but you must be here between 10 and 3, and you mustn't put in less than 37 hours in a week. And one more point, you needn't specify in advance what time you are going to finish.
S.: How long does our holiday last?
P.M.: You all have 18 days holiday a year. Ten of these 18 days must be taken during July when the company will be closed. The other eight days may be taken in either one" or two instalments, for example five days and three days or six days and two days, etc. But you can't have eight separate single days off or four 2-day periods off.
S.: Could you possibly tell us about lunch hours?
P.M.: We have a canteen here where you can have lunch. Lunch tickets are on sale on Monday mornings only and this means you must buy your tickets then for the rest of the week. The canteen is open between 12.30 and 2 o'clock and there are two sittings. You should decide on Monday which sitting you are going to attend and tell the supervisor when .you buy your tickets. So, any more questions about these three points — flextime, holidays and lunch — before I move on to the next matter?
A resume, sometimes called a Curriculum Vitae or CV, is a summary of your career history, the skills experiences you have gained during the course of it.
A good resume should:
1. attract attention
2. create a positive impression
3. present your skills and qualities clearly and concisely
The purpose of the resume is to tell to an employer why you should be hired. Consider it as your personal marketing instrument. A good resume will help you open the door to a job interview.
There are two kinds of resume: employment and academic. The employment resume: is typically shorter. Academic interview generally includes several additional sections such as:
Conferences, seminars attended
Papers given
Professional affiliations
The academic resume is used when applying to research bodies, international or educational organizations, NGOs, etc.The resume, as a standard summary of information, may be photocopied and sent off to many employers, changing sections of the content according to the different needs of the organizations contacted.
Resume writing tips.
As you write your resume, keep in mind the following:
Use concise language
Minimize or omit everything which is irrelevant
Select and order the major categories so that the most relevant information is placed near the top of your resume where it will receive the majority of the reader’s attention
Your resume must be free of typographical and grammatical errors
Have your resume critiqued by an experienced person
Print your resume on white paper.
A CV ('curriculum vitae' or 'resume') is essential if you're applying for a new job or for promotion within your own company, or even to register as a delegate at a conference. Some information might be given in your CV, some in your letter of application — and perhaps some on a Supplementary Information sheet (giving information relevant to the particular job you're applying for). There are no fixed international rules about this: different countries have different practices.

A Letter of Application
Dear Sir,
I should like to be considered for the post of Personal Manager at your Croydon factory, which was advertised in the "Sunday Chronicle" on February 15th 2002. The relevant information concerning my education and professional experience is as follows..
From 1980 to 1983 I studied Sociology at the University of Harrogate and graduated with a Second Class Honours Degree (Lower Division) in that subject. The main degree course was concerned with basic sociological topics, such as the history and theory of sociology, but there were also a number of optional courses available.
From amongst these I selected The History of Industrial Sociology and The Psychology of Management. In order to satisfy part of the requirements for my Finals Examination I had to submit a short dissertation involving original research. I wrote a paper on Nineteenth Century Industrial Relations in Yorkshire and for this section of my examination received a mark of distinction, j
Whilst at university I took an active part in a number of social activities, and was secretary of both the Drama Society and the Student Sociological Society.
On leaving university I was a student for a year at the North York Business College, where I was successful in obtaining a Diploma in Industrial Management, Class I. Courses at this college covered a wide field relevant to the management studies in general and I was able to supplement my theoretical knowledge with a great deal of practical experience of such things as office management, personnel selection and the development of modification of work schedules.
But it was in the area of personnel management and control that I found my interests satisfying fully and I took all available opportunities of increasing my knowledge of theory and practice in this field.
From July 1984, when I left Business College, until September 1988, I was employed as an Assistant Personal Officer with Messrs. James Bradley, at their Leeds factory. The company manufactures a wide range of small components for use in the electronics and motor industries, and employed at that time a Labour force of approximately five hundred men and women.
I enjoyed the work at Bradley's very much, especially in that it kept me closely in touch with both workers and management, but after four years' experience there, and in the absence of any prospects of promotion I applied for the post of Deputy Personal Manager with Yorkshire Engineers Ltd. I began to work there in September 1988 and am still employed in the same post.
My work at Yorkshire Engineers is in many ways similar to that which I was doing previously. The work is absorbing and rewarding, but now I feel that at this stage in my career I should like more responsibility.
In your advertisement you asked applicants to provide information on leisure activities, which may be considered relevant. First, I have continued ever since university to read widely in the literature relevant to my occupation I find time to contribute articles to several of the journals in this field. Details of my publications are provided on an attached sheet. Second, I began doing some voluntary social work while at business college and have gradually extended my commitment in this direction ever since. I enclose copies of two recent testimonials, and the names and addresses of two people who are prepared to act as my referees. I hope that the information I have provided in this letter and the enclosures is sufficient for your purposes, but I shall of course be glad to expand it should you wish.
Yours faithfully,
Robert Drayton

What Does It Mean to Communicate?
The word "communicate" has a long history. It has come to English, like many words, from Latin. To the ancient Romans, who spoke Latin, the term meant "to make common". In 1771, the first Encyclopedia Britannica defined communication as "the act of imparting something to another". Notice that these definitions do not limit communication to the use of words.
Once an understanding has passed between people, with or without words, they have communicated. Mental vitamins are as important as other kind. This chapter examines the silent side of communication.
Nonverbal Communication
Nonverbal communication includes eye contact, facial expressions, speaking distance, body gestures, and tone of voice. Some forms of nonverbal communication are common to people throughout the world; others vary from culture to culture. Between cultures, you are likely to discover some ways of communication that surprise you.
Eye Contact
Meeting a person's eyes and maintaining eye contact is one way of showing interest in what that person is saying. It shows that you are paying attention to the speaker. Avoiding eye contact suggests that you may be uninterested, fearful, or inattentive. On the other hand, some people are made uncomfortable by lengthy eye contact.
It is usually appropriate to begin and end conversation with at least a glance to establish eye contact. Establishing eye contact serves as a sign of friendliness. It can also be used to signal a willingness to cooperate.
Speaking Distance
The normal distance between speakers varies from one culture to the next. Latin Americans, for example, usually stand relatively close while talking — an arm length or so. People from some other parts of the world stand farther apart.
In the United States, speaking distance is usually two to four feet apart. A person born there is likely to become uncomfortable if someone stands much closer, since physical closeness is normally reserved for display of affection or anger. One may step back to allow the normal speaking distance. Backing away might be seen as unfriendliness by the other. An unspoken misunderstanding could result, causing distrust for speakers.
On the other hand, under the right circumstances even physical contact becomes an acceptable way of communicating. In formal situations such as introductions, physical contact often takes the form of a handshake. Less formally, a brief touch of hand to shoulder or back can express care toward another person. The same gesture can be used to show satisfaction with someone's work.
Gestures are physical movements that have specific meanings. You may shrug your shoulders to express doubt or uncertainty. You may nod to show agreement or attention. Certain gestures are known to people throughout the world; other gestures are not. Be careful. A gesture familiar in your own country may carry an entirely different meaning elsewhere in the world.
How do people learn gestures? Whether as adults or children, they learn by watching them used. If you don't fully understand a gesture, ask someone. Though people use gestures almost without thinking, they are an essential part of communication. Gestures add a dimension to speaking.
Facial Expressions
How many ways can you smile? To flirt. To say "hello". To show politeness. To be friendly. To seek cooperation. To hide what you really feel.
Expressions are by no means simple to understand. Expressions communicate a wide range of attitudes and feelings. Eye contact, a smile, or even raised eyebrows may create a feeling of solidarity between people. At work, where interpersonal communication is essential, nonverbal communication expresses friendship. Nonverbal communication can tell co-workers that you care about them as people.
Tone of Voice
Feelings and attitudes are only sometimes put into words. This fact may seem a bit surprising. Yet research has shown that people in the United States, for instance, use words to express emotion as little as 7 percent of time. The rest of the time, emotion is communicated nonverbally.
Examination Topics
I'm a student of the Ufa State Petroleum Technological University. It is one of the largest educational institutions in the Russian Federation. It was founded in 1948 as the Ufa Oil Institute and in 1993 it was elevated to university status. But it should be noted that the institute was formed not at once. It has an interesting and instructive historical background typical of many institutes born in the eastern parts of our country during the post-war time.
In severe years of 1941 all Moscow institutes were being evacuated to the Urals, Siberia and Central Asia. The Moscow Oil Institute was evacuated to Bashkiria. By January 1942, students and their professors in small groups reached at last Chernikovka where the Institute was evacuated. It was housed in a two-storied building in Ulyanov Street, 45. They lived in terrible living conditions but in spite of all these hardships the institute continued its functioning, the lectures being delivered for ten hours a day.
In November 1943 the Institute returned to Moscow leaving its branch in Ufa. There were 150 students left in Ufa. They studied here for two years and then were transferred to Moscow to complete their education.
The Ufa branch of the Moscow Oil Institute existed from 1943 to 1948. There were only three faculties at that time.
In autumn, 1948 it became independent and was named the Ufa Oil Institute.
Nowadays it trains above 14000 students not only from Russia but also from the Independent States of the former Soviet Union, Asia, Latin America and Africa. Training of foreign students at USPTU is carried out since 1986. During this period more than 300 specialists from more than 30 countries of the world received diplomas of USPTU.
The University has seven faculties which train highly-skilled specialists. They are:
1. Oil and Gas Mining;
2. Pipeline Transportation;
3. Economics and Management;
4. Chemical Technology and Biotechnology;
5. Architecture and Building Engineering;
6. Geology and Geophysics;
7. Humanities;
8. Automation.
The academic year at the University is subdivided into a winter semester (from September to January) and a summer one (from February to June). Each semester ends with examinations. There are many well-equipped laboratories and workshops with modern apparatus and instruments in the University to provide high level of training. Here students carry out investigations, make experiments and develop devices. The experienced teachers help them in their research. Students have a large well-stocked library and reading halls at their disposal.
The University is in close connection with oil industry and students have practical training at the refineries, oil fields and other industrial enterprises of our country. On graduating from the University some of the best students remain for 3 years more to do postgraduate work but the rest are assigned to jobs at the research institutes, pipe-line construction sites, refineries, oil fields and other places.
Social life of the University is characterized by the existence of a large number of students' societies and clubs.
Our university has 3 branches in Oktyabrsk, Salavat and Sterlitamak.
(Mechanical Faculty)
I am a student of the Mechanical Faculty of the Ufa State Petroleum Technological University. Seven faculties of our University train engineers in various fields of study, such as oil-well drilling, oil and gas transportation, oil field development and exploitation, automation and remote control of industrial processes and others. It also trains mechanical (petroleum) engineers to work in oil processing and oil extracting industry. Within the speciality of the mechanical engineer students entering our University may specialize in the following branches:
1. Mechanisms and equipment of oil and gas fields.
2. Mechanisms and apparatus of chemical enterprises.
3. Chemical resistance of materials and corrosion protection.
The ever developing drilling technique calls for new drilling equipment and tools. Our engineers have designed and developed a great number of new drilling devices and tools, improved the drilling equipment. All these instruments made it possible to increase the depth of drilling, productivity and ensure greater safety of the drilling process. The students specializing in mechanisms and equipment of oil and gas fields are to cope with these tasks. They will have to design and develop new types of pumps, draw-works, hoisting equipment, compressors and many other items of equipment.
Machinery and apparatus of chemical enterprises is a speciality that trains engineers for refineries and petrochemical plants. The future specialists will have to solve many engineering problems such as:
1. Exploitation and maintenance of plant machinery.
2. Calculating and designing machines and instruments.
3. Technology of manufacturing equipment.
4. Mantling metal structures and equipment.
5. Researches dealing with strength, long life and intensification of machinery operation as well as maintenance and installation.
Modern refineries and petrochemical plants are equipped with different machinery and in order to solve many engineering problems mechanical engineers must have good training. The students specializing in chemical resistance of materials and corrosion protection receive very good training in chemistry, physics, mathematics and many other subjects. As a result of the training engineers of this speciality can work not only at the refineries and petrochemical plants but almost at any kind of enterprise.
Mechanical Engineers and Their Job
Demand for qualified mechanical engineers is high. Mechanical engineers have a wide range of job opportunities. They may be management, sales, development, research, design or production engineers in such industries as food, steel, chemical, heavy and light engineering. They also can work in service industries such as transport and gas, water and electricity. Mechanical engineers are vital to the running of plants. Without them production would be impossible. Each plant is likely to be different. Some are large, some are small and most of them are complex. The main operational objectives of safety, efficiency and profitability are common to them all and demand a range of technical and personal skills from the engineers.
Mechanical engineers are concerned with machines, mechanisms and energy conversion. Mechanical equipment is at the core of the plants. Each plant is different from the next: the machines are particular to the process involved in making the end product and mechanical engineers are involved in their design, building and operation.
Mechanical engineers′ jobs are demanding and exciting. Technical and managerial skills of mechanical engineers are used to the fullest. They keep the plant running and stimulate the team to make better use of equipment and improve performance.
Mechanical engineers are at the core of production: they manage plant and equipment, they manage people. In fact, they manage our future.
The United Kingdom today consists of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It was created by Act of Parliament in 1801 and its peoples are known as British.
The United Kingdom is separated from the continent of Europe by the English Channel and the North Sea. The total area of the United Kingdom is 244 000 square kilometres.
Great Britain is an island. Therefore it has maritime climate with frequent rains, strong winds and continuous fogs. The weather changes very often but temperatures rarely exceed 32°C or fall below -10°C. The climate is not good for agriculture and many agricultural goods are imported from other countries.
Britain is a constitutional monarchy. This means that the monarch, at the moment Queen Elizabeth II, is the Head of State. Today the queen is not only the Head of the State, but also an important symbol of national unity, a symbol of British traditions. The British Parliament has two houses, or chambers: the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The House of Commons is the most powerful and decides national policy.
At present there are two main political parties that come alternately to power: the Conservative party (or Tory), and the Labour party. The leader of the winning party automatically becomes Prime Minister. The party who comes second is the Opposition. British Prime Ministers have lived at 10, Downing Street since 1731. People often talk about "Downing Street" when they mean the Prime Minister and his or her Cabinet.
The country has a well-developed industry. Steel manufacture and shipbuilding were the oldest ones. In the last few decades service industries, especially banking and retailing, have expanded. But manufacturing still plays an important role and many high-technology industries have been developed.
Britain is a densely populated country with some 51 million people. The majority of the working population is engaged in industry. 80 per cent of its population lives in towns. There are many big industrial cities here: Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and many others.
There are lots of institutions of further or higher education. Most students in Britain are taking full-time education courses. There are also part-time courses, half of which are for adult people. There are some 79 universities, Oxford and Cambridge being the oldest of them. They are famous for their first-class education as well as their beautiful buildings.
London is the capital of Great Britain, its political, economic and commercial centre. It is one of the largest cities in the world and the largest city in Europe. Its population is about 8 million.
London is one of the oldest and most interesting cities in the world.
Traditionally it is divided into several parts: the City, Westminster, the West End and the East End. They are very different from each other and seem to belong to different towns and epochs.
The heart of London is the City, its financial and business centre. Numerous banks, offices and firms are situated there, including the Bank of England, the Stock Exchange and the Old Bailey. Few people live here, but over a million people come to the City to work. There are some famous ancient buildings within the City. Perhaps the most striking of them is St. Paul's Cathedral, the greatest of English churches. It was built in the 17th century by Sir Christopher Wren. The Tower of London was founded by Julius Caesar and in 1066 rebuilt by William the Conqueror. It was used as a fortress, a royal palace and a prison. Now it is a museum.
