Reading

Practice 4:

Read the following about whether or not having a nap can make you smarter. Then answer the questions below.

La sieste, peut-elle vous rendre plus intelligent?

 

sleepingEt si une petite sieste vous rendait plus intelligent? Vous n'y croyez pas? C'est pourtant l'hypothèse qu'avance le docteur Matthew Walker. D'après une étude qu'il a faite sur le sujet, il semble qu'une sieste d'environ une heure par jour rendrait plus intelligent et cela permettrait aussi d'apprendre plus vite. Il donne aussi des exemples de quelques grands hommes ou femmes de ce monde, comme Margaret Thatcher ou Bill Clinton qui, pendant leur carrière politique,faisaient tous les jours une (petite) sieste.

sleepingOui mais, comment faire quand on travaille? Il est vrai qu'en Europe 'faire la sieste au travail' n'est pas bien accepté. Mais en Chine, par exemple, il est tout à fait normal de se reposer un peu après le repas de midi. Au Japon, il y a même des firmes qui demandent à leurs ouvriers et à leurs employés de faire une sieste d'une bonne demi-heure par jour.

Et les élèves? Si eux, ils faisaient la sieste à l'école? Apprendraient-ils plus vite? Travailleraient-ils mieux? Seraient-ils plus intelligents? On pourrait toujours essayer. Si vous en parliez un peu à vos professeurs ou à votre directeur d'école?…

heartAssignment 1: Valentine's Note - To help celebrate the holiday, write a sweet little Valentine and send it to someone special, like your mom. :)

Here are some useful French expressions for creating cards:

Bonne St. Valentin - Happy Valentine’s Day

Joyeuse St. Valentin - Happy Valentine’s Day

Je t’aime.  - I love you.

Je t’adore.  - I adore you.

Je pense à toi. - I’m thinking of you.

Sois mon valentin. – Be my Valentine (said to a boy)

Sois ma valentine. – Be my Valentine (said to a girl)

Tu es spécial(e). - You are special.

The French take the cake when it comes to “Sweetie’s” and “Honey’s”.  Here are just a few French terms of endearment:

Mon amour - my love

Mon ange - my angel

Mon chéri - my dear (said to a boy)

Ma chérie - my dear (said to a girl)

Mon trésor - my treasure

Mon petit chou - my little cabbage

Ma puce - my flea (that’s right . . . flea!)

French romantic poetry will lend an air of class to any card.  Here are some favorite verses:

Chaque jour je t’aime davantage / aujourd’hui plus qu’hier / et bien moins que demain - Each day I love you more / today more than yesterday / and much less than tomorrow. (Rosemonde Gérard)

L’amour est la poésie des sens - Love is the poetry of the senses.  (Honoré de Balzac)

Voici des fruits, des fleurs / des feuilles et des branches / et puis voici mon coeur / qui ne bat que pour vous  - Here are fruits, flowers / leaves and branches / and then here is my heart / that béats only for you .  (Paul Verlaine)

L’amour n’est rien d’autre que la suprême poésie de la nature. – Poetry is nothing more than the supreme poetry of nature. (Novalis)

Assignment 2: L'emploi du temps d'Alain

  • Alain has a very busy schedule. Describe what he does at each hour of the day.
  • You should write out numbers and transform the 24-hour clock into "normal time"; ie, 16h becomes quatre heures de l'après-midi.
  • ... indicates that elements of the sentence are missing. Write a complete, coherent sentence. Try to vary your sentences and connect them with such words as ensuite, après, etc.
  • Modèle: De huit heures et demie à neuf heures et demie du matin, il écoute la radio.

8h30 à 9h30

écouter...radio

9h55 à 11h10

cours...maths

11h10 à 12h

étudier...bibliothèque (examen...histoire...13h15)

12h à 13h

manger...restaurant

13h à 13h15

téléphoner...parents

13h15 à 14h30

examen...histoire

14h30 à 15h00

ranger...chambre

15h à 17h00

jouer...musique avec...amis

17 à 18h00

travailler...laboratoire...langues

18h à 19h30

manger...café

19h30 à 20h00

parler...amis

20h à 22h00

aller...cinéma

22h00 à 0h

étudier...français

0h

aller...lit

 

Assignment 3: Now that you have done this activity with Alain's emploi du temps, try it with your own. Begin, as seen here, with a list of activities you participate in during une journée typique. Then write it out in paragraph form, using connector words.

Assignment 4: Practice giving directions around your town. This is a great practice. You can be your family's French GPS. The more you practice the better you'll become.

City Map

Imagine that you are showing an exchange student around your city. They only speak French. You will need to help them get around. Figure out how you would give directions to the locations below in French. Write these out and bring them to class.

  • Un centre commercial
  • Une école
  • Une pharmacie
  • Une station-service
  • Un fast-food
  • Un supermarché
  • Une librairie ou une bibliothèque

Mardi GrasAssignment 5: Every year in the Spring, the season of Easter comes. This season includes a series of holidays and some traditions that many follow. The dates change, but here are the holidays:

  • Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday - seen as the last day of eating certain richer, fatty foods. Many wear costumes, go to parades, sing, dance, and celebrate.
  • Mercredi des Cendres or Ash Wednesday - the beginning of Lent.
  • Carême or Lent - A period of about six weeks. During lent, many people fast or give up certain types of luxuries as a way of purging themselves.
  • Pâques or Easter - A Christian holiday, to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

EasterSince many of the French are catholics, it is common to at least find something to "give up" during this period. For this assignment, you need to find something to give up as well for six weeks. The practice isn't necessarily religious, but will encourage you to overcome your dependence on something. Here are some possible things:

  1. Cell phone
  2. Television
  3. Video games
  4. Texting
  5. A food or drink
  6. A certain behavior (i.e. yelling, swearing, etc.)

Assignment 6: Ma Pote - What kind of group of friends do you have? What characterizes you and your friends. Write a short journal entry to talk about you and your friends. Describe where you go, what you like to do, what each person's personality is like. The French have the expression "Touche pas à ma pote!" It means, don't mess with my friends. Do you seek out new friends or do you only hang out with people you know really well. For a challenge, try and make a new friend this year or sit by someone you don't know at lunch. Make your circle of friends grow. You'll be glad you did.

Assignment 7: Imagine you and a friend are traveling to France this summer. You will be in France for one week. You will stay just in Paris.
