    Correction devoir

    Bonjour, 1/ Nowadays, we face environmental problems that the experiences of past people can help us to understand. This article is a book review which was published in the Guardian, (a left- wing daily paper which currently identifies with social liberalism), in 2005, one year after the Indian Ocean tsunami that/which hit the coasts of several countries of South and Southeast Asia. The tsunami and its aftermath were responsible for immense destruction and loss on the rim of the Indian Ocean. In a book review the journalist is supposed to expose the strengths and weaknesses of an essay. In the article, Jonathan Porrit points out that Jared Diamond' s book comes along at just the right time. Indeed, whereas the journalist reminds that mankind is partly responsible for natural disasters, (he makes a link between the tsunami and the human impact on coastal environments) Jared Diamond provides an overview of ecological problems that can lead to a society's collapse. He tries to marshal the facts surrounding the disappearances of past civilizations (he is a biologist and an anthropologist, so he must be relevant) and he clearly shows the parallels we can establish between these cultural collapses and the state of global societies today. The journalist explains Jared Diamond first thought the book would only be about environmental damage. However he discovered other factors which could explain the collapses. The journalist praises Diamond's essay since he studies a wide range of cases which can help the reader to understand what triggers a societal collapse. These analyses lead Diamond to be very critical of our environmental behaviour: while human activities cause long-term environmental damages, it seems people can't stop themselves from satisfying their immediate disires. Such behaviour leads to a deadlock situation. This is the reason why the journalist introduces Diamond's book as a warning: many countries are already on the verge of collapse. Surviving is a deliberate choice. 2/ We could define Diamond's Collapse as a row of case studies: several societies of the past that suffered utter collapses because of environment related reasons. What is interesting is that there is a lesson to be learned by all of us. Indeed, according to Diamond these past collapse experiences could easily happen to modern-day societies. What happened could teach us how to deal with one of the biggest issues in the world today: the environmental issue. Many modern-day societies are already about to collapse. But is the siuation totally hopeless? Diamond does not think so. Such optimism is surprising according to the journalist who expected an apocalyptic conclusion. On the contrary, Diamond offers us a hope: if we could learn to live as if the world was a polder, we could survive. A polder is a Dutch lowland reclaimed from the sea which is held back by dykes and pumps. We can see the polder as a metaphor. The idea is that in a polder neither rich nor poor people can afford to insulate cut themselves off from the consequences of their actions. If through anyone' s negligence the sea breaches the dykes they die together. And no one can afford to postpone until tomorrow what must be done today. Diamond tries to make us understand that the world is a polder, and if we don't recognize that, we will drown together. For now, we can notice Diamond's dream is far from reality. We have difficulty thinking the world as a polder, that' s why we can say Diamond's idea is very seductive but also a little bit naive. It is difficult to believe that the developed world, or rich people in the developing world will wilfully scale down their lives so that the world as a whole can avoid collapse. We can say that the tragedy of mankind is that its conception of development contradicts its dream of sustainability. We can notice two reasons for that contradiction: on the one hand, a temporal incoherence, what is good for today is not necessarily good for tomorrow; one the other hand, a spatial incoherence, what is good for ourselves is usually not good for others. It seems people are not ready to live in the same polder yet. For instance, Donald Trump has always made it clear that he does not believe global warming is human-related. In 2017, he announced the United States would pull out of the Paris climate accord/agreement. The thing is that as long as people deny the environment is a priority issue, they won't do anything to change the situation. The metaphor of the polder throws into relief the fact that mankind has new responsibilities. As the philosopher Hans Jonas puts it in The Imperative of responsibility, the characteristics of the modern technological civilisation have changed the nature of our moral obligations. The concept of responsibility has been given a new dimension. People are not only responsible for themselves, they are also responsible for the future generations (for people who are not yet alive/haven't been born yet). Congratulations on your excellent English!

    Correction travail oral

    Bonjour, Je ne t'apprendrai rien en écrivant que ton niveau est au ras des pâquerettes ! Fais toutes les révisions qui s'imposent sur les fondamentaux de la grammaire et ôte-toi de la tête qu'écrire en anglais consiste à "traduire" dans la langue de Shakespeare ce que l'on a préalablement écrit dans la langue de Molière comme tu l'as fait car c'est une stupidité colossale. Inscris-toi sur (c'est entièrement gratuit) pour en exploiter toutes les richesses et commencer à progresser. C'est tout le "mal" que je te souhaite.

    Writing a cover letter

    La première est 100% correcte. Pour la seconde et bien qu'elle soit correcte aussi, tu pourrais dire plutôt : I hope you will take my application for the job into condideration. Certes elle a une petite connotation "brosse à reluire" mais elle présente au moins l'avantage de mettre chacun des deux protagonistes à sa place. Bonne chance.
  8. Bonjour, Sauf erreur, le diplôme DCG est égal à bac + 3, non ? Et malgré tout, tu te dis "plutôt très mauvaise en anglais" ? C'est une blague ! Ta traduction est incomplète, il y a 2 poissons que je nomme A et B. A - S'il coule trop bas, il y aura des problèmes. Heureusement il a contacté l'OPEP pour de l'aide. OK B - Et ils ont dit/répondu ? A - Prenez goût/De prendre goût/ aux sushis... Comme tu ne donnes aucune indication sur l'origine du dessin humoristique, je ne vois pas le rapport qui peut bien exister entre le prix du baril de pétrole brut et les sushis. À moins de considérer que le sujet "He" englobe de manière grammaticalement erronée le prix du baril de pétrole et le chauffeur, on peut penser que la marée noire qui va se produire après le naufrage du camion ne va pas faire les affaires de l'OPEP ni celle des gentils poissons. Oui, je sais, c'est tellement tiré par les cheveux que ça ne tient pas la route grammaticalement parlant mais j'avoue manquer d'inspiration. Après plus ample réflexion, les sushis se consomment crus et ne nécessitent donc pas l'apport d'un combustible tel que le pétrole pour une cuisson quelconque. Si tu as la source de ce dessin humoristique, peut-être pourrait-elle te mettre sur la voie. Désolé de ne pouvoir faire mieux.

    Writing a cover letter

    Bonjour, March 18, 2018 Dear Mrs Carrington, I am writing in reply to your job announcement for a baby-sitter. I am 14 years old and a student in year 10 at XXX secondary school. I am interested in this job because I need some pocket money to buy a scooter. I have often looked after my little brother and I also worked for two families in the past. <Sans entrer dans les détails, peut-être pourrais-tu préciser ce que tu fis pour ces deux familles ? I think I would be good at this job because, first of all, I can work on wednesdays and at weekends. Secondly, I am patient and responsible. Thank you for your time and attention. Yours sincerely, J.Donegan Suggestion : comme tu l'as fait pour ta signature, peut-être pourrais-tu mettre tes coordonnées d'en-tête dans un encadré centré ?

    Bonjour, 1) The document is a prevention poster/poster of prevention. <(1) It was designed by the website On this poster of prevention, there are stubs of white and orange cigarette butts/ends. <(2) The orange stubs <(3> butts/ends form a dead man's head of death.<(4) We can read a slogan on the in the bottom right-hand corner : “Smoking kills 30 times more people than poisoning”. The atmosphere is morbid. (1) Quand son emploi est possible, le nom composé est toujours préférable. (2) Attention à la place des adjectifs épithètes, toujours AVANT le nom. (3) stub s'emploie pour le mégot de cigare. (4) En anglais, il faut comprendre : une "tête d'un homme mort". 2) This poster is against the addiction in to the cigarettes.
