• Hey!


    Today, you first corrected your homework:

    Here is what you said about the origins and consequences of stereotypes:

     Some people think they are superior to others. What's more, they are scared by differences between different groups of people : the "Fear of the Unknown" can lead to xenophobia and racism. People who have stereotypes make people responsible for problems / blame people for their problems so they are scapegoats.

    The story takes place in Paris at a café terrace. The author is English because he compares London and Paris.
    He spends a horrible year because it's difficult to find an apartment in Paris: indeed, they are stuck / packed together: when neighbours cook, it smells bad/stinks. Moreover, the guarantee is very expensive and to rent a flat, you need to provide/give many papers.

    First, you mentioned 2 striking stereotypes about the French.


    Then, you proved the stereotype about obese American people was inaccurate:

    How to deconstruct a stereotype?

    American men are said to be obese but :
