Rendezvous Enseignant référent

Chaque étudiant de première année a un enseignant référent. L'enseignant rencontre l'étudiant après quelques semaines de sa première année pour faire le point sur ses études. C'est le moment d'en parler si vous pensez vous réorienter, et aussi de faire part de toute question ou difficulté. Je voudrais donc prendre rendezvous avec les étudiants suivants, dans mon bureau (208) aux horaires suivants. J'ai demandé à votre enseignante Mme Head de vous permettre de sortir, si votre rendezvous tombe pendant son cours le jeudi après midi.

Si vous avez un empêchement, envoyez-moi un courrier électronique. john [point] mullen [arobase] wanadoo.fr

Merci
JM

L2 Thème Classroom test November

Below are the suggested answers. The next big test, which will have the same structure, will be on Tuesday 3rd January. If you are absent on the 3rd January, even for a very good reason like illness, you will take the retake exam in June.




Suggested answers, classroom test L2, November 2011

Section A

1 Régine looked at me in silent disapproval.
2 I thanked him for his thoughtfulness but pointed out that I had no money.
3 He had no children. Noone knew of any family.
4 The conversation they had had on this subject, two weeks earlier, had been the first one they had had since they started working shifts.

Section B
Les emplois temporels du prétérit (« I went to York when I was in England » (et les emplois non temporels (« If only I could fly. » or « If I bought a car… ») ont en commun le fait de souligner le décrochage de l’évènement par rapport au moment présent. Pour les emplois temporels, nous parlons d’une période révolue ; pour les emplois non-temporels, nous parlons d’évènements non-réalisés.

Section C (NB il faut traduire au prétérit)

Willy Berg, more dead than alive, phoned the Saussaies ; his report filled them with panic. Pannwitz immediately set in motion a gigantic police operation. The area around Saint Lazare station was blocked off ; dozens of passers-by were arrested ; the Bailly Building was gone over with a fine toothcomb. But there was no sign of Trepper. At the end of the afternoon, Pannwitz closed down the security set-up, which was no longer of any use. And that’s when the big boss walked into Saint Lazare station from the Rue d’Amsterdam and jumped into a train heading for Saint-Germain-En Laye.

He had realized that the Gestapo would be swarming into the area. Coming out of the chemist’s, he had run into a metro entrance, jumped onto the first train that arrived and stayed hidden there until it got to the terminus. From there, he came back gradually towards the centre of Paris ; at the end, a bus dropped him off at Saint Lazare station. He didn’t know if Georgie still lived in their house. She might have been short of money to pay the rent. The lease was soon to run out, if it hadn’t already done so.

Katz ! He must know about his boss’s escape plan ; He probably even knows where he is hiding.
