I will start from geographical position of the USA. It is the fourth largest country in the world. It occupies the southern part of North America and stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. It also includes Alaska in the north and Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean. The total area of the country is about nine and a half million sq. km. The USA borders on Canada in the North and on Mexico in the south.

Next it is important to say some words about natural resources of this country. If we look at the map of the USA, we can see lowlands and mountains. The highest mountains are the Rocky Mountains, the Cordillera and the Sierra Nevada. America's largest rivers are the Mississippi and the Missouri. The Great Lakes on the border with Canada are the largest and deepest in the USA.

The USA is made up of 50 states and the District of Columbia, a special federal area where the capital of the country, Washington, is situated. The largest state is Alaska. The most attractive for tourists is Florida, because of its great resorts. But if I were a tourist who decides where to go in the USA, I would prefer a New York. Some people would probably say that there is nothing to see in this city. A lot of people think that there are only skyscrapers. But as for me it would be very interesting to see stunning buildings of Manhattan which are situated on the bank of the Atlantic Ocean. I like such urban sceneries.

The climate of the country varies greatly from north to south. The coldest region is Alaska with its arctic climate. The climate of central part is continental. On the south there are subtropics.

The USA is one of few countries in the world that has no "official" national language, but the most widely spread is American English. There are some differences between American and British English. For example, American is more primitive, because Americans try not to use a lot of tenses.

It is very important to say that The USA is a highly developed industrial country. It has the best roads in the world. I think that's because of American sympathy to large and powerful vehicles. The most famous world's companies were established in the USA. Between them are: General Motors corporation, Boeing, Coca-Cola, Ford and other well-known ones.

To the conclusion I will say that despite lots of Russian criticize American politics, it would be very interesting for me to visit such highly-developed, leading country.
