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 ?!
What For ?
Variety's on this English menu : have fun practising ! ~~~ Progresse en anglais au fil des divers articles et supports :-)
Some of you have just learnt about branding, advertising and globalisation... Many of these are now being conveyed on the Internet : here's a slideshow on how young people use the internet and various social media such as Facebook, MySpace, etc...How are young people using social media ?
"Young people read blogs and use social networking much more than the average internet users : nearly 1 in 3 is a blogger !" ________________________________________

You may all know Hugh Laurie, the lead actor in "Dr House" series...
In this short video clip from an awarding ceremony, the actor plays the interpreter of Helen Mirren into French. He seems to be getting on her nerves quite fast, thus she makes it difficult for him ... though in the end it's nothing but self-derision :o)
The series is American and so is Dr House's accent but yet, the actor is British ! He is said to have worked hard on his accent to pretend he was American : otherwise he would never have got the job !
lead actor = the main role/actor in a film or series / get on someone's nerves = irritate someone / yet= however / topretend (faire comme si / faire semblant) / otherwise = differently than as supposed or expected
Great thanks to R. Thibert (a colleague) for having me discover this amazing picture : wow ! It looks as if Britain were completely covered with snow and ice ! The photo was taken on January 7, 2010, from 'Terra' satellite.
