You asked me who the man was. Well... you must find the answer :o)   [why not use  Wikipedia ?]

Remember the clues I gave you : he was born in the beginning of the 20th century (1903) and wrote a famous novel : "1984". 

Who is he ??

You can write a comment to send me your answer... when you find it !

To make your English more authentic

you also need to use typical English phrases, sayings... idioms.

 

For instance, most of you know that when in France "Il pleut des cordes" -i.e. "It's raining ropes"- the British would rather say "It's raining cats and dogs" !
