• Hey!


    Today, you corrected your oral comprehension test.

    Here is the correction:

    Children between 5 and 10 years old and teachers died in a school shooting. Teachers helped to fulfil the kid's dreams, so they were devoted. Kids were too young to die : indeed, they had their entire lives ahead: weddings,graduations and birthdays. Unfortunately, kids who survived lost their innocence / the survivors' innocence was destroyed / was torn away.

    Their parents are lucky/blessed because their kids are at home tonight. American's heart is broken for families of casualties and survivors. Barack obama doesn't speak as a president but as a parent: he's moved by the numerous tragedies.

    Thanks to a self defense training, we can learn how to disarm/ to neutralize a shooter who is wearing a helmet and a bullet-proof vest and bearing a fake gun.
    This training permits to learn different techniques :

    - we can learn how to grab/ hold the barrel of a gun and point it away.
