- —> Some pointers [here's a tip: "pointers" is a potentially useful word, one you might even want to look up; definition 5 here would be a good place to start; if you're not sure what a tip is, look at definition 2 of tip4 here] about expressing the time and the date can be found here. Students who do not know how to use expressions involving the date or the time will wish they did.

- In class on Feb 5th (Mme Péraldo) & 7th (M Hadley) we will look quickly at this document, which includes a vocabulary list. We will also begin translating this document, a passage from P Lemaître's Au Revoir, Là-Haut, and which also includes a vocabulary list.
- On March 14th, Mr Hadley's class started working on this passage from Jules Verne's Tour du Monde en Quatre-Vingts Jours, even though I had neglected to put it on the web-site...
- On March 21st, I anticipate that we will finish with the Verne text and will be able to go on to this description of Mme de Rênal excerpted from Stendhal's Le rouge et le noir. The vocabulary associated with this text is here.
