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!!!

Dear pupils,

Here's a video of musicians playing from all over the world, together, in spite of the distance separating them.Isn't it cool????

"United we stand!" ;-)

 

What do you think about that? What do you think about the song?

 

Enjoy!

 

 


 
The lyrics of the song:

This song says, no matter who you are,
No matter where you go in your life
At some point you're going to need
Somebody to stand by you.


Oh yeah! Oh my darlin' Stand by me!
No matter who you are, no matter where you go in life
You gon* need somebody, to stand by you.
No matter how much money you got, or the friends you got,
You gon need somebody, to stand by you

When the night has come, and the land is dark,
And that moon is the only light we see.
No I won't be afraid, no I-I-I won't shed one tear
Just as long as the people come and stand by me.

Darlin' darlin' stand by me, Ooo stand by me Oh stand
Stand stand by me C'mon stand by me stand by me

When the sky that we look upon
Well should tumble** and fall
All the mountains, they should crumble*** to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

Oh darling, darling stand by me, oh stand by me,
Oh please stand, stand by me, stand by me.

Oh darling, darling stand by me, ohh stand by me,
Please stand, stand by me, stand by me.
Ohhh baby, baby...

 

(interlude)

Oh darlin' darlin' stand la la nomie
Ooo stand la la nomie, O stand O stand stand
Stand by me c'mon stand by me, stand by me.
Stand la la nomie, oh won't you stand, la la nomie,
Oh stand la la nomie, stand by me, c'mon stand by me.

When the night has come, and the land is dark
And the moon, is the only light we see
I won't be afraid, lala nomie, I won't be afraid
Not as long, not as long as you stand by me.

 

*gon = gonna = going to

**tumble = collapse, fall

***crumble = s'effriter

If you sing along with Aretha Franklin, you must pronounce "Think" correctly : [θ]. 

 Think  sink ...

[θɪŋk] ≠ [sɪŋk]

 

Here is a nice video which will help you understand how important the difference is!!!

Hi guys!

Here is an interesting website... It deals with UFOs, and you can see pictures taken all over the world (even in France!).

Just take a look, read through if you are interested... It's a good way to review your vocabulary anyway! ;)

 

Enjoy!

Hi y'all!!!

Here is a song you probably can't sing, because it's too fast... However, you can repeat "Think" over and over again to work on your pronunciation of <TH-> ...

 

 

 


 

 

Enjoy!


 

Okay guys: here are the lyrics... If you manage to sing along with Aretha Franklin, you will have to give a show in class!!!!!! ;)

 

Think (think) think (think) think (think) think (think) you think (think)
think (think) think about it

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

Let's go back, let's go back, let's go way on back when
I didn't even know you, you couldn't have been too much more than ten
I ain't no psychiatrist, I ain't no doctor with degree
It don't take too much high IQ to see what you're doing to me

You better think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom
Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom

Hey, think about it
You, think about it

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)
I was gonna change, but I'm not, to keep doing things I don't

Hey! Think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

People walking around everyday, playing games that they can score
And I ain't gonna be losing my way, ah, be careful you don't lose yours

Think (think), think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)
Without each other there ain't nothing people can do

 

Yeah! Think about it baby (what you're trying to do to me) till the fall of night

Think about it right now

 

Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom
Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom

There ain't nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won't (I won't)
I was gonna change, but I'm not, if you're doing things I don't

Think (think) think about what you're trying to do to me
Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free

You need me (need me) and I need you (don't you know)
Without each other there ain't nothing people can do, yeah yeah
Think about me (what your trying to do to me) till the fall of night
Think about it baby

(think about what you're doing to me, think about what you're doing to me,think about what you're doing to me, think about it)

(think about what you're doing to me, think about what you're doing to me,think about what you're doing to me, think about it)

(think about what you're doing to me, think about what you're doing to me,think about what you're doing to me, think about it)

(think about what you're doing to me, think about what you're doing to me,think about what you're doing to me, think about it)

You had better stop and think before you think, think!!

Watch E.T.'s trailer, and imagine the title of an article about it.
