Observe comment placer ta langue de manière à bien prononcer le son / ð / correspondant au "th" de "this", "then", "that"... elle appuie sur les dents de devant quand tu "souffles" l'air.

Si tu places tes mains sur les cordes vocales, tu les sentiras vibrer : en anglais, on parle de "voiced sound" (son voisé).


Le son /θ/ lui, correspond au "th" de "thank you", ou "theatre" : la langue se place sous les dents de devant, mais sans les toucher. Quand tu souffles l'air, tes cordes vocales ne vibrent pas (vérifie !) : c'est pourquoi on parle de "voiceless sound" ou son non voisé.


And now...  practise & have fun !

And now... practise & have fun !

Social Networkers' self-mockery ;o)


By kalokwong1 - on 9GAG.com, a fun sharing community

High School students & beyond :

Decode the reasons why the author of the poster has chosen each explanation...  can you answer these questions?

Twitter : "I'm eating bacon"

How long are the messages displayed on Twitter? So, why is the verb "eat" present continuous?

Fbook : "I like bacon"

... hmmm. Nah, I won't help you! The answer's far too easy...

LinkedIn : "I have skills including eating bacon"

If you don't know this network, check what  linkedin is... and you'll get the answer! The key-word is "skills".

Foursquare : "This is where I eat bacon"

Which is the key-word? 1st clue : this one helps to find places - 2nd clue : check it here!

YouTube : "Watch me eat my bacon"

... you know the answer-key comes with the word "watch", don't you?

. . .  ?? : "Here's a vintage photo of my bacon"

Well, I give up : it's surely a photography social media, but I couldn't find what this logo corresponds to : if you can find the social media it represents, please tell me!

⇒  I knew you'd find it (1)  : the logo shows Instagram's camera.

Pinterest : "Here's a recipe with bacon"

Why not explain what ' Pinterest' is?

Google+ : "I work for Google and eat bacon"

How does Google work -I mean how does it earn money? As a result... why does the poster tell that you work for Google whenever you use it on the web pages you surf?

Last.fm : "I'm listening to music about bacon"

Well, both "fm" and "listening to music" are clues to a proper answer : what can you do on this website? Who owns last.fm? You'll find the answer here.


Here you are : hope you've learnt a bit more on a few Internet social media networks and had fun :)

  (1) : thanks to SteF

"12 Years a Slave" trailer - English (French subtitles)

"[...] Solomon Northup was a free black man living in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. in 1841, when he was coaxed by “two gentlemen of respectable appearance” to travel to Washington, D.C. for employment. While there, he was beaten and sold into slavery, with his captors claiming he was a fugitive slave. He spent twelve years in bondage with three different masters in Louisiana before he was finally rescued — a feat which involved secretly smuggling a letter to his family and enlisting the help of the New York governor. [...]"

From "Text to Text | ‘Twelve Years a Slave,’ and ‘An Escape That Has Long Intrigued Historians’ " by Michael GONCHAR and Tom MARSHALL (the New York Times - October 2013)

Pour mieux manipuler la formation du prétérit et reconnaître le participe passé de verbes irréguliers je te propose un petit jeu de piste: munis-toi de ta liste des verbes irréguliers, puis cherche :

* 5 formes verbales au prétérit irrégulierd'un même verbe (un auxiliaire):

--> 3 sont immédiatement suivies du participe passé d'un autre verbe (il s'agit de formes passives), parmi lesquels: 2 verbes irréguliers (qui suivent un seul auxiliaire, attention) / 2 verbes réguliers -facile : ils se finissent en ... ?!

* 2 autres formes verbales au préterit: 1 verbe irrégulier / 1 verbe régulier.

Alors ?? Tu veux vérifier si tes "découvertes" sont bien les bonnes ? N'hésite pas à venir en fin de cours ;)
