LEA QES anglophones

Si vous avez besoin de passer l'examen de la deuxième session (dite de rattrapages), notez qu'il y a deux notes. L'examen écrit à Rouen début septembre, et aussi une note orale. 

Pour la note orale vous devez fabriquer un petit video de deux à trois minutes, dans lequel vous expliquerez en anglais ce que vous avez compris du processus de Brexit en cours. Vous l'enverrez avant le 15 septembre à john.mullen@univ-rouen.fr

Préparation à l'agrégation 2019. Thème. Passages to translate


Our thème class will be starting up in September, but it is never too early to begin. The more time you have, in particular to study grammatical difficulties in the passages, the better you will be at the translating.

You will find here in PDF form the passages we will be working on in the first semester, as well as all the details about how the class will work. I tend to avoid using paper, so please bring these passages to class along with your translation.

If you wish, you may send me, at the mail address indicated in the booklet, your considered translation of the first passage, at least a week before the first class. If you only have time to do a rough translation, do not send it to me.

M2 students will be with us, too, for the first six weeks. None of these passages were studied last year, so anyone trying the agrégation for a second time will not be disadvantaged.

Irish Home rule in cartoons

It is important to remember the very strong emotions roused by the Home Rule question. Here you have a cartoon from the British journal Punch in the 1880s, after the Irish National League had been formed, and a reply from the Irish nationalists. Thanks to Martine Spensky for the photo of the second.
