Today's message:

Back to work!


Welcome and have fun!

Bonjour et bienvenue à tous !

Ce blog est ouvert à tous ceux qui veulent apprendre et/ou s'amuser en anglais, grâce à des jeux, des chansons, des vidéos et autres activités ludiques. La plupart des documents publiés seront en lien avec ce que nous faisons en classe bien sûr, mais pas seulement : ce blog est un lieu de partage. J'y afficherai des choses qui me paraissent intéressantes et/ou amusantes, comme des bandes-annonces de films, des clips, etc.

Vous pouvez également me contacter si vous voulez que j'affiche quelque chose que vous voulez partager avec vos camarades... mais attention : tout doit se faire en ANGLAIS Les commentaires en français seront effacés, et les messages que je recevrai en français ne seront pas pris en compte.

N'ayez pas peur de faire des erreurs, au contraire !!! C'est le meilleur moyen d'apprendre. N'hésitez pas à corriger vos camarades !

Have fun!!!

sincerely, I work with teachers I like good , if not I answer or not I work but nothing more. I say with my proffesseur French, he tried to make me say something , so i said . I am not
criticizing the of  teacher work, that's just it's hard to explain....


Mister V. 16/11/2011 17:15

I'm not sure I understand, but that's alright. I think you can't always get on well with* everybody, that's the way it is!


*to get on well with = to have a good relationship with

sony 16/11/2011 14:03

I know there must be a certain distance but  outside of college I'm friends with a teacher

Mister V. 16/11/2011 17:12

But this teacher is probably not one of your teachers this year ... Or if it's the case, you both know you must keep a certain distance inside school. You're not gonna kiss hello/goodbye at
school, you know what I mean? You're not gonna drink a cup of coffee together at school, right?

sony 14/11/2011 17:59

Why you became english teacher ?


 I do not know why but I found out that there is too much distance between teachers and students, they take us for the shit ... sorry -.-'

They talk behind our backs ect.

they believe themselves superior to us, and I can not stand !

Mister V. 15/11/2011 22:11

I became an English teacher for many reasons ... the most important ones being that I love English and that I love transmitting something to other people. So transmitting English is just great
for me, and it's all the more interesting when students are interested and make progress.

I think a certain distance is necessary. Teachers can't be friends with their own students, otherwise they would have problems teaching with a certain authority, which is necessary to have a good

I'm surprised by the rest of your message... First, I think teachers are all different. Then, teachers at Dolto's are good hard-working people. I'm sorry if you've had a bad experience once...

sony 13/11/2011 11:01

why I'm already somebody's important? I not understand?

Mister V. 13/11/2011 18:52

Every being on this planet is already important ... The problem is that most people don't know it, or they are not aware of that greatness inside them ... maybe because of a damaging education, a
lack of self-confidence, or because of the influence of TV and other media ...

You are part of this universe, you are Life: you are important! (No matter your grades at school, or what people say... Never believe anything or anybody saying otherwise.)

sony 13/11/2011 10:54

I was part of a drama club, I stopped this year because the work ect..

The story is too long to explain in writing, I do not know all the words ,

and I is not want sure to become a teacher, I hate this job ( i don't no why ) ... but I could be a journalist :D

Mister V. 13/11/2011 18:41

A drama club ... nice! Maybe you shouldn't have stopped, I'm pretty sure it could have helped for school!

Why do you hate teaching as a job??? You have to give me a reason!!!

Journalism sounds exciting indeed ... I thought about becoming a journalist one day, but destiny decided otherwise.

sony 12/11/2011 16:25

I do not want to become someone important, I just want to live a profession that I love ...

Mister V. 12/11/2011 21:05

You already are someone important anyway.

As for the job that you love, I totally agree with you ... But, you know, even if you don't get your dream job, you could still be an actress! You could be ... I don't know, a teacher for example
( :P ) and be an actress on weekends... couldn't you? Just for fun! What matters most is that you keep doing what you love.

I know a couple of people who are stage actors, but it's quite hard to make a living out of it. It's quite insecure as a job, but you could still keep acting for pleasure, as a leisure-time
activity... Would you be happy with that?

sony 12/11/2011 16:22

No actress , commedienne but I do not know how they say in English

Mister V. 12/11/2011 20:56

Well, "comédienne" is also "actress" ... but if you really want to make the difference between the two, you can say a film actress for cinema, and a stage actress for theater.

sony 12/11/2011 16:20

In fact I want to become an actress, but actress (I did not know how to say in English)
I am talented,  I truly believe ... I know it's hard, but I was raised in this world


No , it's not you , but i see a little smile in your face ;)

Mister V. 12/11/2011 20:58

You were raised in this world, really? How's that???

Do you act in some theater club or something like that?

sony :) 12/11/2011 13:06

at the meeting: parent / teacher, I said that I want be actress, and the teacher is laughing at me -.-

Mister V. 12/11/2011 15:54

Sorry about that... (Hope it wasn't me! :P )

On the other hand, that reaction is grounded: many people your age want to become an actor because they believe it is the only way to become someone important (and I think this is because of TV
reality shows, like Secret Story :P ).

In addition, even if you are talented and could indeed become an actress, it is very difficult to enter this world. Cinema is a closed business/relatives circle.

Why do you want to be an actress?

Sony :) 26/10/2011 16:50

The message of the lyrics is to say to time pass quiqly and that people end up more ess evil , so when they were the future.

After , i understand not all :/

Mister V. 06/11/2011 19:34

Yeah, almost ... the song deals with teenagers' lives, especially when they become adults.

When they are teenagers, they have plenty of dreams they want to achieve, but when they become adults, they actually have a completely different life. They are disappointed and end up pretty bad.

That's why you have to fight for what you dream of. In other words, you have to work hard at school if you want to do anything you want in the future. And never give up!

sony :) 24/10/2011 17:01

For the clip , i not say Lol ;)

 but I think the clip does not correspond to the lyric , except at the beginning ?


Mister V. 26/10/2011 12:52

That's interesting...

In your opinion, what's the message of the music video?

And what's the message of song?

And then, when you compare both messages, what do you think?

sony :) 24/10/2011 16:54

Yes , i agree.

It's too bad that few people talk about .. :/ .

The lyrics are touching no ? and i think it's  the first song that i hear, talk of suicide

Mister V. 26/10/2011 12:50

The lyrics are touching indeed, I agree ...

I think many songs deal with death and suicide, which are - unfortunately - things that happen. It's not very exciting, but the lyrics here make sense.

sony :) 23/10/2011 17:26

And the texte also ..



Mister V. 23/10/2011 19:02

I think the lyrics are very interesting, and can actually concern some pupils in L'Aigle ... don't you think?

Sony :) 23/10/2011 15:55

I love this song , it was time ! :D

But the clip is .. strange :P

Mister V. 23/10/2011 19:01

Why's that?
