Конспект урока по теме “Be tolerant and you will prevent conflicts” 1. Организационный момент. (3 мин.) Hello, boys and girls! Nice to meet you. The topic of our lesson is “Be tolerant and you will prevent conflicts”. Do you agree with this statement? Why? In my opinion most conflicts happen because of lack of tolerance. Is it true?
