Depuis 1981 la France a été victime de politiciens qui ont sournoisement puis de plus en plus agressivement abaissé sa culture... la faisant petit petit disparaître au profit d'une inculture générale... et d'une perte d'identité totale pour la France !

Et là-dessus est passée le décapant Europe...

Sans les excuser, mais quand même, il faut reconnaître que pour les individus en mal d'identité, généralement jeunes et oisifs, que sont les accédants à la résidence et/ou nationalité française, et tout autre livré à lui-même et donc au pire...

En ouvrant le tombeau de l'identité française, très forte encore dans les années 70, la France des années 80 à nos jours a ouvert la porte à tout et n'importe quoi ! Chacun se bricolant son identité à sa manière... ou à la manière des prédateurs et prédicateurs de mauvaise augure...et autres intentions malsaines...

Il en résulte qu'un travail pharaonique de nettoyage, de reculturation, de réindentification, de résurgence d'une vraie France grande et forte... une France qui a repris sa souveraine et les rênes de son pays... une France innovante et indépendante en lui donnant, et lui laissant, les moyens de son entreprise autant que de son emprise...

Il va sans dire que, pour ce faire, il est capital de changer et de gouvernement et de système, de réformer à touts les étages !

Restaurer les bases et les valeurs de la tradition, de la culture et de l'identité française (à prendre ou à laisser !)

I have never been alone… never ever… as far back as I can remember… never alone… and if always enjoyed my own company they wouldn’t leave me alone… let me be… and let me be me…

Wherever I went as soon as I was alone they appeared in turns to show me and tell me things… do things sometimes… but there were never bad or aggressive… I guess they just liked my own company…

One of my Muslim friends once told me they were djinns and were regular folk in their lore…

And I thought can’t I get a little privacy ? Djinn Djinn… Anybody home ?

Spending my life teaching English

Teaching, and long-term -or life- teaching English is as good a job as any other... and even better... like the author says... it's a job that gives you a well paid job abroad... and there's always work... even if you don't speak the language to begin with -although I believe once there you should learn it... learning the language is respect for the local and the best way to understand them and the challenges they're facing learning English-...


We all, at one time or another, go through a mid-life crisis... and there's nothing wrong with changing jobs or life altogether... so long as it is a MATURED and CHOSEN decision... not a choice you make out of no choice... a desperate escape... and, with teaching English, you can always chose to go and teach somewhere else...


I made a different choice... a choice based on a philosophy I call the Snail Syndrome... leave everything while take everything along... I decided to top my teaching...
All my life I have been a compulsive learner and I like to tell my students and whoever wants to hear it that I love school so much that I did everything to stay there... and so became a teacher... and so I learnt all my life with a view to furthering and bettering my teaching... I became another English teacher... I learnt other complementary skills to supplement my teaching... and renewed my teaching every time... and enjoyed teaching with a new approach... I learnt communication, Communication, NLP, Personal Branding, how the brain works and how we memorise, other languages, music therapy, sophrology and hypnotism, and became a coach in languages and communication... enjoying myself all the while...


Lately, and also because of major health problems, I had to take another turn... another direction, another road... and developed my writing and started writing for English teachers and English students while producing audiobooks... and when I look back I realise I owe it all to teaching English... and the funny thing is I never wanted to be a teacher to begin with... can you believe that ? There's not only room at the top with Teaching English... there's also room for maneuver... disillusioned me ? Never !

Left to my own devices I would reform the whole university system altogether and bring it down to what people need for their culture and work...
University courses today have left it at what university was when universities were invented (since the very end of the 11th century - OxBridge 10936)... i.e. people then had to prove they could write, speak Latin and Greek, and reason... nothing one single organisation needs today... except universities ! And yet nobody -except me- has every found this strange...
people with diplomas walk into their first job without the fainted idea what a company is... and they have been recruited on the basis of a qualification that has so little -and only remotely- to do with what they're expected to do in the course of their job to make their work and salary worthwhile ! Shocking really that we're stil there more than a1, 000 years later !


The same goes for exams...
People are tested on things they don't know and/or will never need... in a way that doesn't even test their skills -and most of those tests only rely on understanding... when candidates need expression just as badly- and that being done through a multiple choice answer system...

I have had some of my students 'play the game' of choosing a whole column of A/B/C/Ds just to see what results that letter would bring... and the minimum is as high as 25 %... many times nearing 25 %... meaning anybody taking such a test -while not speaking one word of English- would clock up a score of anything between 25 to 30 % ! Those tests perform very poorly...

Educational systems are begging for a reform that would bring them to meet the business world in the flesh... and join forces... have diplomas that answers what companies need... starting with test that really ensure the students are competent in the skills required of them to do a good job...

Our behaviour teaches people how to treat us… and the company we keep defines us…

Talk of miss Marple coming around and she’s all over you… prying spying… pushing her nosy snout up into your affairs and business… listening in on every conversion… and beckoning murder… with a talent that spells malevolence… and nobody in their right mind would go around with them… unless they were murderers… with a friend like that nowhere is safe…

In his latest Nespresso ad

where he and a lady mistake their suitcases at the airport

and then meet to exchange them...

And that's when she realises he's not the man she expected him to be...

 

'I always expected you to be more...

-taller ?' answers George... and he stands corrected.

 

Wrong answer George !

One syllable adjectives do not use MORE in the comparative forms...

Patrick JUVET - Le Petit Suisse de la Chanson Française

Si Patrick JUVET est petit cela n'est sûrement pas par la réputation ni la taille...

La Suisse n'est pas prêteuse et c'est là son moindre défaut... elle n'a jamais non plus participé grandement à la chanson francophone ni française autant qu'avec Patrick JUVET...

Avant de se faire connaitre par voix musique et sans voix Patrick JUVET s'était longtemps fait connaitre par sa taille... Sous les spotlights et les flashes des photographes des magazines de mode, Patrick JUVET exposait son physique avantageux... 'Au Même Endroit À La Même Heure'...

Puis... il ajouta la musique à sa carrière et, de chanson douce et poétique en chanson douce et poétique... les tabloids l'ont trop vite classé dans la case chanteurs à minettes... ce qu'il l'a plutôt bien servi que desservi en fait... une carrière très fortement soutenue par un succès constant... et l'aveu tardif d'un titre pour Claude François 'Le Lundi Au Soleil (I Will Be In LA)'...

Mais, un jour, une envie de changement ou de (se) prouver quelque chose, Patrick JUVET prit un tournant et une déviation vers la musique alors considérée par les profanes comme plus 'sérieuse' et 'vraie musique'... un chemin qui ne s'est pas avéré son chemin de Damas... et, un album plus tard, 'Chrysalide' avec Daniel Balavoine, alors inconnu... et un détour par la composition de la bande sonore pour le film de David HAMILTON 'Laura'... resté très confidentiel...

La rencontre avec Jean-Michel JARRE, alors inconnu comme parolier mais gourou de l'électronique hexagonale, l'amena à la porte de l'électronique et du disco... après un passage par un 'Mort Ou Vif' plutôt bon mais mal accueilli... et l'énorme succès de 'Où Sont Les Femmes ?' en fera un classique du genre... qui verra même une sortie en anglais (Where Is my Woman ?) qui le conduira à rencontrer le duo Morali/Belolo auteurs compositeurs et mentors des Ritchie Family et Village people... deux poids lourds du disco d'outre-Atlantique... qui déposèrent dans le compte suisse l'énorme chèque des droits d'auteurs de 'I Love America' et l'album éponyme avec un 'Swiss Kiss' ou encore 'Viva California'...

Un dernier tour en anglophonie en 1980 avec 'Still Alive' mais l'album manque de côté personnel et de personnalité... et restera dans les bacs... Patrick JUVET est déjà une star du passé... dépassé...

Patrick tenta un retour vers le romantisme et la francophonie avec 'Rêves Immoraux' sans retrouver son public... comme c'est souvent le cas après une migration... bien que l'album reste un très bel opus... et 'Solitudes' plus diaphane... où il s'ouvre plus au monde de la nuit et au milieu gay...
Il semble que, comme souvent, le public de Patrick JUVET ait eu du mal à le suivre dans ses différentes périodes et styles variés... qui pourtant confirment bel et bien que Patrick JUVET est un chanteur et musicien avec lequel la chanson française devra désormais compter...

Je lui garde mon affection musicale sur toute la ligne... et ici encore salue l'artiste ! Merci Patrick d'être venu... tu nous a offert le meilleur de toi-même et c'est déjà beau et beaucoup !

Having taught English and coached in English for over 35 years I still fail to understand how so many teachers get through their teaching career with one or two books... or even none at all...

I have always said and practiced that a good teacher should be a good learner and ring the changes... and what about those people ?

I have invested and collected hundred of books as teaching material and more collateral material and written more than 15 myself... I have spent thousands of hours listening to podcasts while commuting... and collecting and saving them so as to include them in my lessons... I have furthered my teaching with a number of training courses... all of this amounts to a library that overloads one of the rooms at home from floor to ceiling... and I am the only one I know in thousands of teachers who goes round towing a case with computer and books... so as to have a maximum options and audio and visual support in my classes... I can put anything out of my stock at any time... at the drop of a hat... on any subject ranging from medical to architectural and engineering or even cooking and art...

I have never seen a hundredth of what I have at home even in the bigger and best equipped language schools... that says a lot for their teaching...

Publishers don't give so many specimens now... and in some countries they're even illegal... so how do those teachers manage... if they don't invest in their own books and go for new course books ? And what do they do in their classes ? A student's books is the basis of a successful training in English... for many reasons... not to mention the fact that it saves the students a lot of time jotting notes down... as well as in their own organisation !

There is a trend for conversation classes... at any level... about anything... in actual facts anything goes... truth of the matter is most of the time those classes are not planned nor organized and students end up in gibberish when it's not the teacher speaking most of the time... and in group conversation classes, I'm regularly told those sessions soon revert to the native language... and English is forgotten... the same goes for films...

Most of them have never been near any audio material either...

Furthermore conversation classes only bear fruit if they are part of an extensive and thorough course plan... where the student is involved... or else all the benefits are lost... and most teachers would do that imagine their students understand and progress... only because the students claim to understand -often to get rid of the subject as quickly as possible- or think they understand... as they imagine from whatever they have really understood -often amounting to peanuts- my answer is... given a test on the understanding and see how they flop !

There is safety in numbers and there is value in ringing the changes... especially for Business English... the world around us is constantly changing... and so is the language... new words appear regularly... and old words become obsolete and fall into oblivion...

Nous restons sur notre faim quant aux conclusions de la disparition du vol d'Air France Rio-Paris, qui a fait 228 morts le 1er juin 2009...

Comme d'habitude, les journalistes ont lâché l'affaire dès que la patate a refroidi... mais il n'en demeure pas moins que cette catastrophe ne semble pas avoir été étudiée sous tous ses angles...

il apparait que l'endroit est connu des gens du cru pour ses disparitions... à répétition... et notamment d'avions... entre autres manifestations étranges !

Dans un autre documentaire lié à la disparition d'avions américains dans la région... il est fait état d'une zone... telle dans le triangle des Bermudes... où les signaux électroniques sont contrariés ou perdus... et les forces telluriques fortement perturbées ou inversées... sans explication logique... les boussoles s'agitent et les dimensions s'entrechoquent...

Là encore la recherche sur ces phénomènes semblent avoir été bridée ou interrompue...

À quelques battements d'ailes de là au nord nord ouest Colares a connu des événements étranges elles aussi... impliquant la plupart des résidents et le tout répertoriés par un pilote de ligne et un médecin...

Les gens se faisaient attaquer au bord de la mer et jusque chez eux la nuit par des lumières énormes et des vaisseaux et faisceaux lumineux surpuissants... ils étaient poursuivis par des créature inconnues sur terre, humanoïdes... qui laissaient des marques sur leur peau... toutes identiques... ressemblant à des brûlures... et rapportaient qu'on leur prélevait du sang... et d'autres matières organiques...

Personne apparemment n'a rapproché ces éléments jusqu'à maintenant... bien qu'il parait évident que quelque chose d'inhabituel se passe dans la région du nord est du Brésil...

Ma veille à moi continue...
