    Any predictions for the film essay???
    I'm guessing, do you think your metteur en scène deserves the respect he has been given. But honestly it could be anything. (I'm hoping techniques tbh)

    my exemplar paragraph on why future generations should read the book
    Spoiler:
    Show

    D'après moi, il devrait être lu par les générations futures puisque malgré le fait que ce livre a été écrit il y a plus d'un cinquantaine d'années, il parvient tant bien que mal à nous impliquer dans son histoire. De nombreux gens seraient d'avis que le sujet de l'Holocauste peut être ennuyeux, cependant, Joseph Joffo nous y plonge en nous conduisant dans son aventure de guerre. Contrairement aux livres de guerre, il parvient à nous faire de vivre dans l'instant afin qu'on soit diverti autant qu'engagé. Il ne s'agit pas tout simplement d'un livre holocauste typique à quoi on s'attendrait: dans lequel le lecteur raconte ses mémoires et des évènements cauchemardesques, mais Joseph Joffo nous fait de ne jamais perdre le fil du livre - par l'utilisation de nombreuses figures de style. Par exemple, Joseph Joffo utilise l'apogée quand il se trouve dans l'Hotel Excelsoir, voyant l'abattage des Juifs à proximité de lui-même. Il y a des gens qui pleurent, Joseph donne la main de Maurice. Après être parvenu à réussir, le lecteur se sent donc soulagé. En ce qui me concerne, il serait dommage pour les générations futures de ne pas le lire. Autant que je sache, d'autres livres traitant du thème de l'Holocauste ont souvent tendance à nous faire peur, ou à nous enseigner l'Histoire de cette époque de guerre plutôt qu'être une histoire que l'on peut suivre profondément sans avoir aucun des pensées négatives

    De nombreuses gens (adjective before the noun -> feminine)
    il aurait été dommage -> il serait dommage
    d'autres livres qui traitant du thème de l'Holocauste,
    qu'on peut suivre
    Also repeats D'après moi, but overall really impressive - good luck!

    I loved the film essay questions, found some of the listening and the french to English translation quite hard but the rest was okay. What did you think to it?

    Yeah essay questions weren't too bad, although I think I messed mine up because I wasn't 100% sure what it was asking so probably didn't answer it properly but oh well.
    French to English translation was horrific haha. Listening and reading was mostly alright though What did you put as the synonym for 'la vie penible' on the question about the Chinese family going to Belgium?

    Essay questions were nice! I did the second artist question which was good but I couldn't remember what occasion meant and of course it's second hand! Oops! Hopefully the other stuff went well so the mark doesn't drop! 😜

    Suppose that was okay! Didnt like the translation one (Wtf was the french to english one lmao) or the cloning Ran out of time on my essay and I wrote waaaay too much and thought I had half an hour when it was 5 minutes so I rushed my conclusion and partly answered the question hahaha. Sooo happy the question was on influences on Stromae 😆😆😆
    Hope everyone else's went well!

    I honestly hated the French to English translation - especially since it turns out I knew a correct answer that I didn't put down! I'm also hoping my examiner is nice because my structure was really off with my essay, though I think what I wrote was fairly decent

    Thought it was significantly harder than any past papers, especially the specific vocab in the French to English. Feel most worried about how my essay went (did 12a on Le Petit Prince) - not sure if I explicitly answered the question well enough 😪 feeling really disheartened 😰

    Yes me too! Did you do the film?

    For 'la vie penible' I got 'la galere' meaning chore/pain/hell.
    The first listening I found so hard. All the questions were on really specific topic areas (cloning dogs/electronic bracelets etc) I thought this year!? The translations were a bit mean I thought.

    Did anyone else do the metteur en scene question which was something like
    "Analysez les principales influences... A votre avis, est-ce que ces influences sont plus fortes sur les techniques ou les themes?"

    I put la galère! I did that question too, I did it for La Haine by Kassovitz I hated how many environment questions it had as its my least favourite topic
