Talk French 2 Book
Author: Sue Purcell
Suitable for any language learner who has already studied at a beginner level and wants to take their studies further, this text features ten stuctured units and extended grammar sections which can be used to improve linguistic abilities.
In this delightfully witty, provocative book, literature professor and psychoanalyst Pierre Bayard argues that not having read a book need not be an impediment to having an interesting conversation about it. (In fact, he says, in certain situations reading the book is the worst thing you could do.) Using examples from such writers as Graham Greene, Oscar Wilde, Montaigne, and Umberto Eco, he describes the varieties of "non-reading"-from books that you've never heard of to books that you've read and forgotten-and offers advice on how to turn a sticky social situation into an occasion for creative brilliance. Practical, funny, and thought-provoking, How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read-which became a favorite of readers everywhere in the hardcover edition-is in the end a love letter to books, offering a whole new perspective on how we read and absorb them.
Four teenaged sisters and their mother, Marmee, live in a new neighborhood in Massachusetts in genteel poverty. Having lost all his money, their father is acting as a pastor, miles from home, involved in the American Civil War. The women face their first Christmas without him. Meg and Jo March, the elder two, have to work in order to support the family: Meg teaches a nearby family of four children; Jo assists her aged great-aunt March, a wealthy widow living in a mansion, Plumfield. Beth has to stay at home and help with housework; Amy is still at school. Meg is beautiful; Jo is a tomboy; Beth is a pianist; Amy is an artist.Aux États-Unis, pendant la guerre de Sécession. En l’absence de leur père Robert, pasteur nordiste engagé comme aumônier dans le conflit, quatre jeunes sœurs issues de la classe moyenne de la société font face aux difficultés de la vie quotidienne en ce temps de guerre : la raisonnable Margaret (surnommée Meg), l'intrépide Joséphine (surnommée Jo), la charitable Élisabeth (surnommée Beth) et l'orgueilleuse Amy. Elles vivent à Concord dans l'État du Massachusetts avec leur mère et leur fidèle domestique, Hannah. Autrefois riche, la famille March a été ruinée lorsque Mr March avait aidé un ami dans ses affaires, ce qui avait entraîné la faillite. Malgré cela, la famille est heureuse et n'oublie pas d'aider plus pauvre qu'elle.
