Merci aux professeurs qui ont créé ces quiz pour vous permettre de réviser au mieux vos bases grammaticales en anglais et ainsi vous permettre de vous situer sur le plan grammaire et lexique principalement. Où sont vos forces et où sont vos faiblesses? Notez les réponses correctes lorsque vous faites des erreurs et si vous ne comprenez pas pourquoi vous avez eu faux, pensez à réécrire l'énoncé pour que je puisse vous expliquer comment résoudre vos problèmes grammaticaux. Vous pourrez ainsi vous constituer une banque d'objectifs d'écriture et de relecture en vue de l'examen.

Hey,

 

today we finished talking about the text from the A-Levels in the US. You had to create a questionnaire for this text and we noticed that your questions were relevant and actually present in the test itself. Good Job!

 

I hope that this job will have helped you understand better what you are expected to do for the exam.

 

Until then, you know that I will try to make myself available if you need me on the Internet.

Good luck!

Mr Hattais.

 

PS: I want to have a photo of Sonia, Aline, and Julien drinking from their "English Day by Day" branded mug! I need to promote the website :) ... Just kidding even if I would definitely LOVE to get this picture... ... ...

PPS: just in case you need your list of texts for the oral exam, it will be available on Friday at the highschool to make a photocopy. But remember, DO NOT take English unless you have a VERY VERY bad grade and DO call me before so that I can give you some pieces of advice.

Hey, 

 

today we first corrected some grammar exercises on which you had problems. I hope you will have understood how things work better.

Then in the last part of the hour, I gave you a photocopy of the A-Levels from the USA that took place recently.

 

For tomorrow, you need to read the text completely and to prepare questions according to your question word (Who / Where / How). The one who will ask the most important number of relevant questions will be given a reward!

 

See you then,

Mr Hattais.

Hi,

 

today we first corrected today's assignment, i.e. how to express positive comments (apart from it's good...). Hope this will help you to improve your future essays.


Then we continued working on the correction of your last mock exam and we particularly focused our attention on some translation techniques. Here they are:

 

"to be written by..."

 

Oops... I forgot to bring Sonia's gift today... sorry but she didn't even remember to ask me for it... argh... what a goldfish I am...!


 

HW: for next time, I gave you a list of grammar exercises to try and eliminate the regular mistakes from your written expression. You need to complete the exercises in which you often make mistakes. Go and check the grammar rule before on the web and then complete the exercises. It will help you proofread your essays and narratives.

Hi,

 

today we first finished speaking about the black tide that happened on the shores of Louisiana last year saying who was responsible and on what grounds they were accused. Here is what we said:

 

"to be written by..."

 

Then we continued the class with the results of the survey concerning your poems. And the winner is...

 

Sonia!

Congratulations!

 

Even if your poem didn't respect the rules as much as it should have, people were rather moved when reading it. Good job! The other poems were also pretty good. You'll have your gift tomorrow.

 

HW: you need to finish the activity we started in class, i.e. read the comments from the internet users and highlight positive comments on how to express likes (equivalent words or phrases for "good" or "interesting" for example). Please, make sure you also correct the mistakes from the comments where there are some.

http://i47.tinypic.com/1tvpja.jpgHey,

 

today we worked about the last topic of the year: the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that happened last year.

We first worked with a subverted logo of the company and we commented on it. Here is what we said about it:

 

"to be written by ..."

 

Then we studied a new document, an article from the internet. Here is what we said about it:

 

"to be written by ..."


HW: for next time, prepare a recap of the documents and get ready to talk about reproaches and accusations from this document.

Files: download a copy of the article here (yet to be uploaded)

Hey,

 

today was the last writing test that you would take this year. I hope that you will have achieve good results despite the fact that some of you seemed not to know that the test was going to take place today...

Here reads the subject:

"Can you imagine a killing spree in France as it happened in America? If it happened at your school, what would be your reaction?" Develop your essay in an introduction, development, and conclusion. (250-300 words)

Par ailleurs, je rappelle à ceux qui n'auraient pas encore voté pour les poèmes en ligne qu'il serait temps de le faire... cf. section: "Students' corner" à gauche du blog...

 

Take care,

Mr Hattais.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mCJq2zMBCHY/Ta7XmSBQm2I/AAAAAAAAAJg/Oa0uoZliwvQ/s1600/exam.jpgHey,

 

today we finished making the recap of the text thanks to the worksheet I gave you yesterday.

Here are the answers we gave:

 

"to be written by ..."

 

Additional vocabulary:

"to be written by ..."

 

HW: you need to prepare a commentary of this text for your possible oral exams (squelette de plan + rédaction intégrale incluant Introduction / Développement / Conclusion en prenant comme modèle le 1er commentaire de l'année; n'oubliez pas d'y insérer des références culturelles et d'y injecter du vocabulaire et des structures grammaticales vues dans la séquence et dans l'année pour augmenter la qualité de votre présentation).

Get ready for a writing test (essay) on Wednesday about the topic of guns. So learn your lessons and your vocabulary.

Then we continued speaking about the text and more precisely about what arguments the author puts forward to account for America's gun culture.

Files: download a copy of the worksheet here (yet to be uploaded)
