Oral d'anglais - Espaces et échanges

Bonsoir à tous, en fait je dois rédiger mon oral d'anglais sur la notion espaces et échanges, seulement j'aimerai bien avoir un avais avant de passer devant tout le monde et de me ridiculiser peut-être.. Enfin voilà ce serait vraiment aimable de votre part si vous pouviez me dire ce que vous en pensez? Merci d'avance.

Today I’m going to speak about the notion spaces and exchanges. We can define exchanges as a continuous mouvment of circulation. There are different types of exchanges (with people, financial, education) . This notion deals with the geographical and symbolic areas that all societies occupy and the interactions between men and different societies. Our world is built on the exploration and conquest of new spaces. The different cultural, economic, sociological and language interactions have shaped and characterised our modern-day world. I’m going to talk about globalisation and be focused on the global cities. What impact does globalization have on those exchanges ? First, I’m going to talk about the positive aspects of the globalization and in a 2nd part, I will explain the limits of it.

The globalization is the worldwide movement toward economic, financial, trade, and communications integration  It’s enable to people to be connected and puts end to borders. .Marshall McLuhan, an intellectual, speaks about « global village » to define our world. First, there are pros on the social area. Thanks to globalization some cities are most open and welcome people from the whole world. It’s question of global cities like Paris, Tokyo or London, which are multicultural : they are a wealth of cultural, linguistic and ethnic diversity. If I focus on London, there are products from the whole world (the Caribbean, Bangladesh, Jewish, African, Chinese) most of 100 languages are spoken, more than 1/3 are foreigners, 39% of its inhabitants are black people. We can say that this city contributes to an equality of opportunity to have a job for instance. There is a difference with before. In the 1960s cities were less open and the immigration was misperceived. Racism and prejudice were present at that time. Migrants feel  more integrated, cities are more tolerant than before. I can notice that there are many exchanges between students in the universities. This gathering of people has positive points on the environment area : the energy consumption is lower and the water is saving.  In the economic area, This worldwide exchanges contribute also to the level of competitiveness and productivity, as London which is the only city able to compete with the United States. (3’13)
I turn to my 2nd part. However globalization has limits. In the environment area : the pollution is everywhere so the biodiversity is damaged. This has an impact on the health of the inhabitants. I take for instance the Great Smog in 1952 in London  which is the worst pollution phenomenon of the world which killed 12 000 people. Even if some measures are taken to reduce the pollution, like congestion charge in London or Velib in Paris it keeps a drawback of big cities, often overcrowded. Moreover, if there are global cities, there are cities excluded of globalization. I speak about poor countries which are struggling to integrate because of their social, political or climat problems. These cities are often found in Africa : unless Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa, no city is worldwide. So globalization excluded some cities.

To conclude, globalization has impact on our society and on urban developpement. There is an evolution in many areas. However it has consequences on environment and on other countries and cities, less developped so which can not take part to globalization as the others. Despite this there has a predominantly social progress, that’s why we can link this to the notion Idea of Progress.

Oral d'anglais - Espaces et échanges

Bonjour tout le monde,
Je suis en TL et le bac approche donc à grands pas! J'ai préparé toutes mes synthèses (c'est-à-dire ce que je vais dire à l'oral) de LELE et espagnol, et j'ai fini l'une de deux que j'ai à faire pour la LVA hier soir.
Il m'en reste donc une : Espaces à Echanges. Nous avons étudié le thème des Gap Years, autrement dit des années sabbatiques. Mais voilà, je cherche depuis plus d'une semaine et je bloque complètement sur le document personnel que je voudrais prendre... Or, j'ai envie d'avoir très rapidement (demain au plus tard...) fini toutes mes préparations d'oraux pour pouvoir me concentrer sur les écrits.
Je pensais prendre en document de cours un témoignage d'une jeune femme qui a été faire de l'humanitaire en Alaska, et un autre document présentant deux élèves qui, avec Erasmus, ont dédié leur année sabbatique à leurs études. Je pensais prendre comme problématique "Why do people decide to move abroad?" Seulement, j'aurais eu besoin d'un dernier document qui pourrait montrer une autre raison de partir à l'étranger, que ce soit pour s'amuser, découvrir, se découvrir...
Je pensais prendre le film Into The Wild, seulement nous l'avons étudié pour L'Idée de Progrès, donc ce n'est pas vraiment un document personnel, qu'en pensez-vous?
Si vous connaissez un quelconque film, document, article, affiche, qui pourrait montrer une autre raison de partir à l'étranger, je vous en serais éternellement reconnaissante !

Merci BEAUCOUP!

Oral d'anglais - Espaces et échanges

Bonjour à tous,

Je suis en train de préparer la notion "Espaces et échanges" en anglais, nous avons travaillé sur l'histoire des Etats-Unis depuis l'arrivée des colons jusqu'à la conquête de l'espace. J'ai choisis d'illustrer la notion à travers l'histoire des Amérindiens, ma problématique est la suivante: Dans quelles mesures la conquête des Etats-Unis a t-elle eu un impact sur les populations locales ? Quelles sont les conséquences de ce processus ?
J'ai comme documents le tableau "The First Thanksgiving" de Jean Leon Gerome Ferris pour illustrer la bonne relation entre les peuples, puis un extrait du livre de Thomas King intitulé "One Good Story, That One" où l'on découvre que la nationalité indienne n'est reconnue ni aux USA ni au Canada afin de montrer la situation aujourd'hui. Comme document personnel j'ai pris un texte issu d'internet qui décrit le Trail of Tears pour montrer qu'à cause de la colonisation du territoire ces peuples sont forcés de partir.
Avec tout ça je ne sais absolument pas comment procéder, par quoi commencer, car je ne veux pas trop rentrer dans les détails, pourtant je dois parler obligatoirement de certains événements. Si vous pouviez m'aider à trouver un fil directeur ou m'aider à trouver quelques événements marquants ce serait vraiment super !

Merci d'avance !

Oral d'anglais - Espaces et échanges

Bonjour, je passe mon oral dans un peu plus d'une semaine, et j'aimerai avoir vos conseils/corrections pour ma notion, car j'imagine qu'il reste encore des fautes...
Le thème est espace est échange
Merci d'avance !!

    In order to present the notion spaces and exchanges, we're gonna ask ourselves if the american dream is still alive, and beyond it, what attracts immigrants to go to the USA. First, let us define the American Dream : it's the fact that everybody believes that American social, economic and political system makes success possible for every individual, and that the United States is very welcoming for every individual.Then, we can define the notion of exchanges like the act of  giving or receiving something in substitution for something else. In our case, we're gonna talk about the exchange of people, as part of the immigration between different spaces. A space represents deals with the geographical and symbolic areas that all societies occupy and the interactions between men and different societies.Thus, we're gonna firstly notice the reasons which push immigrants to go to the USA, and we're then gonna constater if the American Dream is only an illusion.

I-Reasons to go to the usa

First of all, we're gonna tackle the reason which pushed the first immigrants to leave their country. In order to do it, let's use the picture "Pymouth Rock". It represents the first setlers : the Pilgrims, a group of Puritans who left Plymouth so as to flee religious persecutions. They wanted to leave somewhere where they could be able to practice freely their religion. But when they are about to berth, they look taken aback because the indians are building a wooden wall to prevent illegal migrants from entering the country.  The Pilgrim's came in America to have a decent life, where they could be free.

II-A dream : illusion

Now that we know the reasons which pushed the Pilgrims, and which push currently the immigrants to leave their country, we are gonna notice that the American Dream is only an illusion. To do it, we can use the picture "Louisville Flood". Even if the afro-americans did'nt come to America by pleasure, but because of the slavery, they are in the same case that those who came now from Mexico, Syrial...  This picture is based on a contrast between the first ground and the background. In the foreground, there are black people, wainting for some food after the terrible flood. Already on the fringe of society after the Great Depression, they plunged into poverty after the flood. What is ironical, and shocking here is that they are standing in front of a billboard that promotes American way of life, wich refers to the American dream. The family represents represents the WASP, lead a comfortable life, where eveything is consumption. There is a huge gap between the two groups. It underlines the discrepancy between the ideals of the nation stated, and the grim reality : some groups of people are lefts out, exluded from society. So, this photo debunks the myth that eveyone in the US has access to a high standard of living.
Finally, we can end with the idea that America welcomes every single person with open arms is wrong. To justify that, let's use the drawing "An alien", on whom we can see a stereotyped police officer, who sounds contemptuous and racist,  who pulled over the statue of liberty just because of her skin color. This picture enable us to encounter the seamy side of the American dream : full of racism and predjudice whereas the immigrants, who are poverty stricken, are just fleeing a life of misery in their country. They hope to be able to succeed, persuaded that the a dream is real, and considering America as a land of opportunity, with no social barriers.

To put in a nutshell, we saw that the idea of the A dream was still present in the mind of people, but this idea is wrong, and the USA is a country where there are huge disparities.
Moreover, currently, we can ask oursleves is the American dream is not turning in "European Dream", even if Europe is not very opening to the immigrants too.

Oral d'anglais - Espaces et échanges

Bonjour, devant bientôt passer mon oral du bac pourriez vous jetez un coup d'oeil a ma notion et me dire si vous voyez des fautes qui auraient échappé à mon attention, merci beaucoup d'avance.

    To introduce this notion i think that we could define exchanges as an act of giving or receiving something in substitution for something else. In today's modern day world these exchanges can take several differents forms like people, media and culture or trade. A space can be define as a state delimited by border. But we can see that nowadays with the globalisation the influence of a state constitute a culture area that can transcend these borders.
Our modern day-world is changing quickly and seems to be a smaller place due to improvements in technology and communication. For exemple immigrating has become way more current thanks to that and has enabled to mix differents culture and people. These differents cultural, economic and sociological interractions have transformed and characterized our world.
    This concept deals with the geographical and symbolic areas that all societies occupy and the interractions between human and these societies that why i decided to talk about a very publicized theme those times: immigration in the USA and attempt to answer the question what could drive people to leave their native land to go in the USA ?
    This year we studied severals documents about this, so i decided to present you 2 of them which we will help us to give an answer to my problem.
    So the first document is an extract called " don't send me back" from the novel " ellis island " written by Fred M.S in 1980. It deal with immigration in America in the early twentieth century and talk about a jew named Jacob who came from Russia to ellis island to have the chance of enter in Usa and maybe fulfill the american dream. At this time ellis island was the place where all the immigrants arriving by the east coast had to pass because before having the possibility of entering in the United States they had to pass a medical exam and that's the theme of the extract.  The scene takes place in one room and a doctor exam him and ask him questions like if he's able to speak english or can count. After this the doctor notice that Jacob have a wound on one of his legs and limp a bit, when the russian see that he began to be very anxious and explain that it's just an hunting accident. But the american don't believe him and thinks that he has been persecuted because jews were slaughtered in Russia at this time however Jacob doesn't admit this and claim that it's just an accident. At the end the doctor tell him that he passed the exam which makes it really happy and excited to begin a new life. I chose this text because it shows the motivation of the formers immigrants and the reason which bring them until U.S.A. The mainly reasons at this time were political as we've seen in the documents because of the first world war and genocide or economical because of the krach of 1929 for exemple. It's very interresting to see how hard jacod want to enter in the USA even if he had to lie, it points out the incredible craze from all the immigrant who were searching a land of welcome for the USA. It's at that time that the american dream has known a big devellopment.
So the second document is an article from Newsweek published on September the 10th 2001, and written by Alan Zarembo. It’s entitled “Why a caged bird can sing”. This document deals with a 35 year ol Mexican woman named Ana, she is an illegal immigrant in the US. She used to live in Puebla with her daughter Angel and her son Misa and she is divorced. In this article Ana explain her path to enter in the US, she told us that it was really hard and risky because it was illegal and she was undocumented and thus she could be arrested and lost the possibility to realize the american deam and her money that she gave to the smuggler. The beautiful thing of her story it's that after months of hard time she managed to clim the social ladder little by little.Her story is a “rags to riches” story since she started with a low-paid job and is now fortunate even if she’s still an illegal immigrant. I decided to talk about this text because it show us that the american dream is not just a dream it can be reality, and that explain us what pulled million of people around the world to leave their country to try to climb the social ladder.
    When we compare these documents we can see that despites the century that separate both of these stories, immigrants have still the same motivation and desire which can be because of political religious or economical problem to enter in the land where evrything are possible that drive them to leave their native country. In addition we could say that since the early twentieth century immigration have been an integral part of globalisation and nowadays it has become an unavoidable topic with the too numerous immigration crises that happend. To conclude i would say that it's really miserable to notice that despite the years immigration has become riskier and riskier and cost the lives of more and more people.

We shall study the idea through the journey. Im going present the notion of space and exchange has fault the following problem. I am going to talk about the notion through the problem following :To what extent the journey can be educational source(learning) ?At first I am going to speak about the learning of a culture and then of the learning of one

    To learn a culture it is necessary to travel and to go to meet others. For it there is various type of way to go abroad and not spent a lot of money.It is the case of couch surfing that is an activity which the people join on the Internet to sleep at people free of charge or in a low price what allows to go to people and to discover their lifestyle . Couch surfing allows to have a real experience of more authentic journey which allows to discover the culture and the gastronomy.
We learn so a lot of culture of a country through his language and its cuisine.en travel one in the possibility of speaking to the daily with premises or travelers.
Au pair is a way which allows the young person to earn money all discover the culture of the country, the lifestyle of the family, culinary tradition and to learn a language.Indeed the fact of living with the family obliges us to speak the language. Au pair allows to visit everyday lives of the family and so to understand the culture of the country .Ilt is  easier to understand the culture when we live and there better still when we work.

bonjour Mela

The notion of Space and Exchanges

The notion of Space and Exchange concerns the movements of exchange in  various times, territories and geographical zones.  These  exchanges  can be  human, economic or linguistic. We shall study the idea by seeing how you can travel and learn in another country. I am going to talk about the notion and ask the question: :To what extent can a trip be beneficial to a person on different levels?

    To learn a culture it is necessary to travel and   meet others. There are many ways  to go abroad and not spend a lot of money.It is the case of couch surfing that is an activity where  people(tu ne mets pas "the " quand tu parles d'une generalité) get in touch (entre en contact) on the Internet and offer their services: you can  sleep for free in others' people house  or for a low price. You therefore discover new people and also their lifestyles. . Couch surfing allows to have a genuine experience of the country you are visting , it enables you to discover the culture and the gastronomy.

J'ai enlevé les deux phrases suivantes qui ne faisaient que répéter ce que tu viens de dire.

Au pair is also a way which allows the young person to earn money and discover  the culture of a country, the lifestyle of the family ,its habits and the food they eat. It is a great way to speak the language because you have to communicate on a daily basis.It puts you in an "emergency situation" to be understood and it alows you to quickly improve.  .(je change ta trame qui se répète trop) It is certainly a great challenge at first but then you become fluent in the language of the country and also familiar with its culture.It is an undeniable asset (atout) to speak a foreign language when are looking for a job.

A trip aboad also allows you to learn more about yourself. You gain more self-confidence and independence. This is even more obvious (evident) if you travel on yourn own (seul). Indeed if we take the example of  couch surfing it is necessary to know how to be well- organized because you need  to find every day a place to sleep.
A trip  improves your sense of adaptation. Tu te répètes trop , j'ai enlevé les deux phrases qui suivaient.


A trip  develops  courage and  curiousity , for instance  in the case of wwoofing(tu es sûr de l'orthographe?) which is the fact of working in an organic farm for example ; But there are others forms of woofing such as taking care of animals . You must work a certain number of hours and then you can discover the culture of the country during your free time.You must be well-organized and brave to make sure that you wake up  early to work.

The journey allows to prove us has has we and our circle of acquaintances that we can be independent and reasonable. To prove us that we can manage in a country which one know not. And also allows to be confronted with the reality. The fact of travelling allows of meeting of people and to exchange and
thus to enrich these knowledge. All this is one more in our life and in a cv
. Il faut enlever cela car ce sont des répétitions qui n'apportent RIEN à ton oral.

I will conclude by saying that we have seen that travelling brings you a lot of enriching experiences. It is not surprising : we all know the say (dicton) les voyages forment la jeunesse (essaie de trouver l'équivalent anglais) sinon tu mets

We all know that travelling widens your spirit. This is true at any age.

Bon voilà
Dis-moi ce que tu en penses

Tu as vu que j'ai beaucoup retouché ton texte(je suis très étonnée car à la fin , tu ne terminais plus ta phrase, tu en refaisais une semblable juste après)
Il serait bien que tu t'entraînes à écrire quelques lignes tous les jours car cela va t'aider à avoir du vocabulaire , à connaître des structures de base comme les adjectifs avant les noms. je veux bien t'aider à les corriger . Tu écris régulièrement sur un sujet et juste quelques phrases (trois maxi) Inutile de te "noyer"Fais le car vraiment il faut que tu travailles ton anglais   .C'est une chance à saisir et je n'émettrai aucun jugement ,je corrigerai tes fautes et je prendrai le temps de te les expliquer.
