Next time you stay in London, rent a bike, keep fit and see a lot !
Read this article. It will tell you about nine ideal scenic routes to discover London.
Let's hope 2021 will be less stressful than 2020 and we will at last see the end of all these restrictions in our daily life.
I can't wait to be able to travel again and visit my friends in England. But due to Brexit, the rules have changed.
Click on the photo to discover all you have to know to go to the UK in the coming months or years.
Right now you can't visit Britain, but you can travel though. Your thousand-mile-long journey can start with the hour's walking you can take every day of course, but also with all the visits and discoveries you can experience on the net.
Whether you are a student or a teacher,
here are two pages you CAN'T do without !
The British Council in Paris
If you want the British Council help you learn or improve your English.
And when you can enjoy a day in Paris again, go and pay them a visit !
Paris Invalides. British Council, 9 rue de Constantine, 75007 Paris.
I recently read an article on the BBC website which I loved because it describes and analyses our behaviour, the French way, with humour and clear-sightedness. But perhaps you will not agree. Read it and comment it !
WHY THE FRENCH LIKE TO COMPLAIN
by Emily Monaco - 1 September 2020
"To complain" means "se plaindre", but what it is all about here is also "to grumble". Perhaps this could be an opportunity to search for vocabulary to speak more accurately about our art of conversation.

Rules are changing in. Every day it seems we have to get informed, because new rules appear.
We're not the only ones in this case. You want to know where our British friends stand? Go THERE and read!
The notion of necessity concerning the businesses that reopened first says a lot about the lifestyle of the people and the culture of the country.
To travel to the UK at the moment, the rules are not necessarily as strict as the media tell us. There are many countries for which quarantine measures do not apply, including France.
But it is strongly advised to be careful, and you will be asked for a signed paper giving the details of where you will be staying.
If you want details and not to make mistakes when travelling, read THIS SITE!
And of course keep in mind that these rules can be changed overnight. Read the news every day, check this site every day.

Have a look at this new page and discover a new way in which my STD2A terminale students were able to list the difficulties they encountered during their confinement.
Léane Bigot 2020
Here is the request :
You are asked to make a note of the small everyday worries, difficulties, troubles and problems you encounter during this confinement. Example: the lack of physical activity that makes you grumpy. These difficulties will be specific to each person according to his or her life context. This note-taking will take the form of a written (in English) and drawn list. You will be able to list all your worries on an A4 (or two if you have a lot to say). Each concern should at least be illustrated by a drawing.
And watch for edits on this page, I will publish new plates! They are beautiful.
I've just posted another confinement story !
There are six. All different ! All interesting and personal !
Read them and send us your impressions. We'll be ever so pleased.
Find the stories on the link above or on the right in the "OTHER PAGES" section.
This strange period of our life started 6 weeks ago. Everybody has had to adapt and some Terminales students tell you about their experience on this page :
You can get to that page, where other articles might appear soon, by clicking on "CONFINEMENT WRITINGS" in the right-hand column, in "OTHER PAGES".
While you are here, watch this video that my students found rather convincing.
