CONSENT : Easily understandable with tea instead.

I thought in the midst of the Harvey Weinstein story, posting this video could be appropriate. 
(Voc. brackets: Journalists tend to call what they are working on 'a story'. Judicial courts,deal with cases. In politics, they refer to narratives or story-telling.)

Sure, everybody likes a good story. Here is one.

Do you watch TV?

Get ready to talk about reality TV, what you think of it, your experience, etc...

Now watch this French documentary. It's 55 mn long. But it's worth the time.
Watch it, prepare an oral description and make a presentation to the class.

Dreaming is ok, reality beats fiction sometimes.

RIP

Eulalia Duocastella-Plà, ex Poulon was one of our beloved English colleagues of Arago.
She worked as a brilliant and efficient English teacher in our high School for many years. Lately, she taught for 2 hours to the ATS. We mourn with them.
We will miss Eulalia's funny wit and precious friendship. She'd have liked that video.
We remember Madeleine too and love her two other children. We'll always be here for them.

"We all have this one life to live."

Learning languages is a thrill...

You know... I get it.
No one commented on the former post, nor (or so very scarcely) on the others for that matter...
Go and have a look to MY comment below the ex first lady thingy
referring to my first post on the 12th of june 2005... Sunday, June 12, 2005, whatever, 
twelve years ago, oh my, oh my! First post, and in French! To make sure you get it.

Learning foreign languages is a must. Hope you get that!

Movember



MOVEMBER is tweet trending in France! I wandered on the thread and saw TED TV.
If you haven't bookmarked it yet, you've got to discover TED TV. 
It’s a great free TV where people from all over the world come to talk about different issues and experiences. 

One of my favourite speech is this one:
 “My stroke of insight”

And I also watched this to learn more about Movember which is now trending in France but not in the U.S. #Comey is #1 trend just now… FBI director James Comey.
So anyway, I watched this to know more about Movember… raising money, moustache, prostate cancer,setting up a charity.
