Correction Anglais LV2 - Bac L Pondichéry 2017

Le contenu du document

 

Il est important de relire deux fois le texte, vous pouvez surligner les mots pertinents à votre compréhension.

COMPRÉHENSION

DOCUMENT A

1. In this text, there are Zeke and Mister Stanley who are father and son. Then, ‘the disappeared mom’ of Zeke, and Lula, a close friend of the family. Finally, there are ‘Tony Soprano’, a character from a TV- series and Ismail Kadare, an Albanian author, really appreciated by Lula.

 

2. a) Lula comes from Albania, she reads novels of Ismail Kadare,an Albanian, ‘her country’s greatest novelist’.

 

b) Now, she lives in the United States of America in New-Jersey where she is applying for a job. It is illustrated by ‘Lula’s job interview’.

N’hésitez pas à argumentez vos propos, sans pour autant paraphraser le texte.

 

3. a)  Lula is not an English native speaker, she learned how to speak English, ‘it was how she learned English’. 

 

b) Zeke tends to hurt himself while doing sports. It is illustrated by ‘each time’ expressing an unfortunate habit.

 

c) In the text, we find several spatio-temporal frameworks such as ‘on Sunday afternoons’, ‘Sunday nights’. Hence, we can guess that it is the only day of the week where Zeke and his father spend time together.

 

d) Mister Stanley prefers to buy sports equipment instead of doing sports. He is told to have ‘a boyish love for buying sports equipment’. We do not have any further information about his taste for sport practice.

Vous pouvez inclure du texte dans vos phrases (entre apostrophes) afin d’illustrer vos propos sans aucune redondance.

 

DOCUMENT B

4. a) Charmain Joshua, the narrator went to the university where she ‘graduated’ and continued her studies at Cambridge university to obtain a master’s degree. She adds that she ‘hated Cambridge’.

 

b)  At the beginning of the text we discover that the narrator earned a ‘bursary’ for a university and she reveals to the readers that she grew up in a ‘slum’. 

 

c) Charmain Joshua has several sisters, the ones who told her stories about England. She explained that her ‘sisters’ read her stories when she was a child.

 

d) In Cambridge, the narrator shared a flat with four roommates who were ‘four other graduate students’.

 

5) Charmaine Joshua had to leave Hillbrow, her previous town, because she accepted a new job in Johannesburg.

Il n’est pas utile de trop s’étendre sur vos réponses si cela n’est pas demandé.

 

6. a) The narrator first night in Johannesburg was hard and long to live because it was the first time she left the family home. 

 

b) The same year, Charmaine went to study at Cambridge university because she won a scholarship to study abroad.

 

7) England is supposed to be Charmaine’s dream destination. It was ‘magic’ for her to hear about this country. Using comparative, she asked to the reader ‘what greater fairy tale could there be than royalty?’

She watched a famous English wedding in a small TV ‘brought for the occasion’ adding that she ‘stood in a jam-packed prefab classroom’. She later said ‘imagine the impact’ arguing that it was obvious for her to fall in love with England.

 

8. a) The narrator hated Cambridge because of the weather and the absence of her family. She felt ‘more depressed as the day became colder and wetter’ and that the connection of the phone line was awful ‘a few seconds before the line was disconnected’. 

 

b) Charmaine decided to move to Cambridge because another South African graduate student of her local university also wanted to go there. Besides, England was her dream destination since she was a child so it would be like an accomplishment.

9) In both texts, there is a different kind of relationship between fathers and children however both are loving.  On the one hand, in the document A, there is a relationship ‘on Sunday afternoons (...) father-son things’ that seems to occur only on Sundays. And on the other side, in document B, there is a deep attachment between Charmain and her father. When she left her home, her father ‘had tears in his eyes when he hugged goodbye’. 

 

LVO

10) Lula and Charmaine are quite similar in their loneliness. Both are ‘stranger(s) in a strange land’. Both left their home country to live into a new one with a new language. They are far from their families and reach them seems something hard to do in both text. They are also diligent; Lula loves reading novels and Charmaine is a very good student because she earned a scholarship twice.

 

LVA

11) Reading has positively influenced the two character’s lives.

For example, public library is ‘one of the few places Lula could walk to’. She is ‘a big reader’, and she ‘spent hours reading novels’. She learned to speak English through her books. 

For Charmaine, it is not that different. When she was a child, her sisters read her some fairy tales about England. Later a grown-up she decided to move to England to attend her childhood dream.

 

EXPRESSION

Sujet 1

If you had to leave your country, what would you mostly miss and how would you adapt? (150 words) 

If I had to leave my country, I would mostly miss my girlfriend. When you are in a true and wonderful relationship how can you let it go? When you leave your home, your habits, your friends, leaving everything behind, it is too easy to feel lonely. I think in one year, I would send more letters than in my whole life! I would use technology as a friend, it would become my new family. 

Nevertheless, I do not want to depend of screens. I would like to enjoy the best I can, the time spent abroad. I deeply desire to meet new people, try to discover new things. 

One great thing when you are alone and no one already knows you, is that you can be whoever you want. I do not want to lie, I just wish to discover a new me and give it a chance. Afraid of heights? Not anymore. I would convince myself to become stronger, and guess what? I bet that I can. 170

Document B, line 22: “And what greater fairy tale could there be than royalty?” To what extent do you agree with this statement? (150 words)

I am not particularly fond of royalty and yet when I was a child, I loved stories about kings and queens. I think that when you are young, it feeds you with romances, everlasting loves and magical fantasies. You cannot keep this thoughts as a grown up.  Your head will be filled with lies. Of course, when you are young, you secretly picture yourself as a princess or a prince on a quest for love or adventures. You think that bad people are always ugly and that kindness always overcome evil. Years later you discover that someone’s been lying to you. 

I agree that when you are young, full of innocence, royalty is one of the greatest fairy tale. However, I think that it must be lived within certain limits.150

Sujet 2

To what extent is reading the key to having access to another culture? (150 words) 

Reading is one of the most important thing in the world. Through books, you can voyage, discover new horizons, new customs.

You can learn new languages that will help you becoming open-minded.

How is it possible that with a small object, full of ink, you can enter a new world? It is magical.

Picture yourself a small-town boy who has never read a book in his entire life. Everything he knows, he saw it on TV, heard it from his relatives, friends…

This means that he will never go beyond the information given. He will not be able to improve his critical sense and he will be more naïve to what people say. I think there are too much conflicts due to the lack of reading. We do not understand each other because we do not know each other. Reading is primordial. For the sake of human beings, do read. It is not important if you start at 87 years old, read for yourself and for coexsitence. 170
