Libre à qui le souhaite de tisser ici ses propres fils avec ceux d'un blog à la trame dessinée par l'anglais et son univers. Orientés par exemple par l'histoire, l'humour, la musique ou le cinéma ses vidéos, textes, sons, illustrations -etc- viennent y prolonger les thèmes explorés en cours, et j'y publie des ressources conçues pour enrichir la pratique de la langue. S'il peut devenir outil de progression, je souhaite aussi qu'il vous procure plaisir et parfois même amusement... why not ?!

"How the war of words was won in Cairo" was published in the New York Times' "Week in Review" section (February 12, 2011). It starts : "How do you tell a dictator to get lost ? The answer, in Egypt, was with poetry, tech lingo, hieroglyphics and more.[...]"
