Pokud by náhodou někoho zajímala ta prezentace o Novým Zélandu a text, tak vám to sem dám. Ale upozorňuju je to v angličtině, ale třeba to nějaký angličtinář upotřebí do školy :-). Je to takový souhrn toho nejdůležitějšího, podle mě.

The South Island is the largest land mass of New Zealand, and is divided along its length by the Southern Alps. In the mountains of the South Island the highest peak is Mt. Cook. The south-western corner of South Island is Fiordland, an area of high mountains cut through with steep fjords.
