here is what we said about the video we watched today as a warm up for the class:


The video is full of puns on words about technology:

  • a Blackberry is both a mobile phone and a piece of fruit.

  • An “orange” is both a piece of fruit and an internet provider.

  • An “apple” is both a brand name and a piece of fruit.

  • An “egg’s box” (X-Box) is both a box of eggs and a video game console. £3.60 is the price of an egg’s box and 360 is the name of the brand.

£ = pound(s)



Then we corrected your homework and we made a chronology of events, commenting on the different numbers:




The London Blitz

  1. July: Germany's preparation for invasion of London.

  2. September 7, 1940: beginning of the London Blitz, during 57 days is London bombed.

  • 4:00 PM 6:00 = London is blasted

  • 8:00 PM 4:30 AM (Sept. 8) = 2nd attack

  1. In one night 450 casualties during a school bombing. 

  2. May 11, 1941 = End of the London Blitz.

"to be written by Quentin" (some information is still missing... = cf. death toll + underground stations, ...)



Here are some explanations about a grammar point in the document:


"to be written by Quentin" -> this info is still missing


Finally we started to talk about how to present and comment on a picture.


HW: for tomorrow, you need to find the global death toll of the London Blitz.
