Western movies

Western movies

Recently, we talked about another aspect of the conquest of the West in class : the way it is represented in movies. And that is particularly interesting. I'm not familiar with Western movies. They never really caught my attention although it doesn't mean I don't find the historical aspect behind them interesting. I may be wrong but it seems a lot
Going on a gap year ?

Going on a gap year ?

What is a gap year ? Nothing but a great opportunity to see a new horizon, breathe a new air and earn new skills. When you go on a gap year, you basically stop working or studying for a while and usually travel to a foreign country. Don't get it wrong though. A gap year isn't a useless year you spend doing nothing. On the contrary, it's a year (but
Discovering America

Discovering America

The discovery of America. A new world. A new life. New opportunities. That's the story everyone knows. But let's do a little history lesson for the ones who didn't listen carefully in class. America was discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus, an Italian navigator and explorer, basically working for the Spanish Crown of Castilla y Léon. When he
Medias : a dark reflection of our society ?

Medias : a dark reflection of our society ?

Hello ! I'm back to talk about the important power, sometimes even abusive, that the medias have upon us. I talked a bit about what I think the role of a journalist should be but I also thought that, even though we don't always realize it, when you think about it, our life is constantly influenced by medias. They can make you believe anything they
Journalism : a way to manipulate ?

Journalism : a way to manipulate ?

Hello there ! We started talking about the power and influence of medias in English class and I found the topic very interesting. We had a discussion about the role of a journalist and I wanted to focus on that. **Spoiler** A journalist is supposed to investigate and write articles to explain something, talk about a specific topic with honesty to i
Stereotypes are everywhere !

Stereotypes are everywhere !

We recently approached the subject of how other people can see us in class. And it's really interesting to see stereotypes existing depending on the country, on the culture... But stereotypes can also be linked to individuals. The society easily puts a label on people being different from the "norm". You can also be judged on your physical appearan
The 1960's : a period of change for women

The 1960's : a period of change for women

Hello, everyone ! We talked about the 60's in English class and I wanted to approach the subject as well. As you already know, the 60's were a real revolution in every way : singers expressing their feelings in the lyrics of their songs, TV available for everyone, women's new fashion style... They put an end to the old-fashioned Establishment and a
Is art a good way to fight discrimination ?

Is art a good way to fight discrimination ?

I'm back to talk a bit about discrimination, which is a very important topic even/above all these days. Cause despite all the progress that has been done throughout the centuries, it still hasn't desappear. On the contrary, hatred is more present than ever in our society : racism, sex and gender discrimination, religious persecutions... Too many fo
Racism : a constant struggle

Racism : a constant struggle

Racism has always existed since the dawn of time. It's something we'll never be able to explain because an explanation cannot be given. Even today, discrimination still exits, after everything that was done. Things have still been done though and hopefully, things will keep being done until there's no discrimination anymore. This progress couldn't
Immigration : a reality

Immigration : a reality

Immigration is not a recent phenomenon yet we talk about it a lot these days. It is important to remember the reasons that got attracted first immigrants to the USA, the country of freedom and diversity, in the first place. A lot of people wanted to escape war, poverty, religious persecutions (the Pilgrim Fathers) and saw, still see today, in Ameri
