Picture the scene : where's the dog ? Describe the place as you are figuring it out, then explain how come the dog's there -and how the hell has this egg come on its nose ?!

What about the dog owner ? Imagine what's on the dog's mind in detail, then tell what happens next. Your whole text might well build a short story.

This flowchart's quite funny, and it's also useful to practise modal auxiliaries (If you like furry tails, you must / you should / you could / you can't...), negative forms (People who can't stand cold blooded animals will not / are not going to /...) -and specific vocabulary too : you can revise and improve it by finding other animals in the same category/species as the ones pictured on the illustration.

Last, but not least, more advanced learners may train their writing skills...

Caldwell Tanner's flowchart pretends (1) dogs are "companions", while cats (or rabbits, hamsters...) are "roommates you have to feed" : do you agree with him ? Why (not) ? Explain your answer and illustrate it with examples :o)

(1)  Beware, "pretend" is a false friend to French learners -check it !

The video displays places and events we currently consider typically British : hence a series of corresponding sounds, such as tea pouring from a tea pot  :o)

"What would be your perfect day in Great Britain ? Where would you go ? And what would you do ? Who would you meet ? And what would you eat ?" You can create "your day exactly as you'd want it" on the "Sounds of Britain" interactive version.

Not only is Xmas a time for holidays and relaxing moments, but also for rediscovering some classics  -and have some fun...   John Branyan's stand-up revisits the old tale according to Shakespeare's rules -and as an English classic it does get funnier  :o)

You might also view Christopher Walken's humourous reading

When Tom-Tom meets Darth Vader or Yoda...

understanding one another may get difficult !

Let's check what you've caught :o)
Try and remember how to say...   la 3ème sortie (d'un rond-point) / reprendre à partir de / indiquer le chemin / nous avons fini  | bienvenue / première prise / atteindre / respirer / rond-point / déprimant / droit devant / avancer
