• Hey!


    Today, you studied the testimony of a woman about gun bearing:

    The right to bear arms

    Here is her point of view about gun bearing:

    The woman's husband was murdered right in front of her by someone who had stalked her before. Consequently, she is in favour of gun bearing because the police can't be anywhere at anytime so, she needs to bear a gun to protect herself and her family.
    What's more, she doesn't care about criminals’ lives because they choose the evil way.
    Besides, the police arrive too late so they just take pictures of the crime scene.

    If guns are in correct hands they can save lives. If she had had a gun she could have defended her husband.

  • Hey!


    Today, you started with the recap of the lesson.


    Then, you corrected your homework and your summaries in French.

    Here are pro-guns videos made by the NRA:

    Here is a possible summary:

    Il s’agit d’une fausse émission de télé-achat.

    Dans ce document, deux présentateurs enthousiasmés vantent les qualités d’un fusil d’assaut (AK 47) qui a connu plus de 75 guerres, afin de convaincre les téléspectateurs d’appeler pour l’acheter.

    Dans un premier temps, les clients qui se manifesteront au cours de la première se verront offrir un cadeau pour tout achat d’un fusil : ils auront droit à un an de munitions / balles gratuites. Il est possible de régler l’achat en liquide, en dollars provenant de comptes off-shore / à l’étranger, et même en diamants. De plus, le présentateur assure qu’il n’y a pas d’inquiétude à avoir car tout est parfaitement légal.

    Le ton du document est ironique car il s’agit d’une fausse émission. L’humour noir est aussi présent, car le sujet des armes et de la violence sont traités avec légèreté.


    Then, you studied a new document entitled 'Boy Guilty of Shooting his Mother'.

    Here is what you said about it:

    The boy murdered/shot/killed his mother because :

    - his mother had beaten and had yelled at him / had slapped him.

    - just before, they were arguing about chores / housework.

    Then, you did an activity about the historical origins of gun bearing in the USA:


    - Lesson: Why are guns part of the American history? Justify with examples.

    - Make searches:

    Today, you trained for the oral comprehension exam with the video document below (-->0'59)

    Here is what you said about it:

    This document is a humorous spoof ad about selling 10000 AK-47/assault rifles.The presenter said the AK-47 is the vilains' favorite. Indeed, the rifle was used in 75 wars.You can pay for the rifle with cash, diamonds or through off-shore accounts. Moreover, if you call within the hour, you will get a year of free ammunition.If you purchase this rifle, you don't have to worry, you won't get into trouble.
