COMPRÉHENSION DE L’ÉCRIT – SÉRIE L

A. Document A

A. 1) ‘Name any spot in Britain’s capital and the driver knows exactly where to go and how to get there as fast as possible’ (ll.1-3)

2)’It takes years to learn’ (ll.3-4) or ‘On average, it takes more than three yers to learn The Knowledge’ (l.17)

B. Correct answer is 3

C. ‘First, they flit around the city on mopeds’ (l.20) then they ‘draw routes with marker pens and then close their eyes and call out directions from the image in their mind’ (ll.21-22)

D. Brian Nayar believes that Uber has a negative impact on ‘the industry he loves’ (ll. 9-10) since a taxi driver doesn’t just drive you around, he or she is also ‘an ambassador for this great city’ (l.27) something which requires training and knowledge and which ‘you can’t get (…) from a GPS’ (ll.27-28)

E. Non LVA seulement

Taking a black cab is a typically English experience because it is ‘a tradition dating back to 1865’ (l.16) in which the taxi driver acts as ‘an ambassador’ (l.27). In fact, since they trained for so long to build a mental map of the whole city, black cab drivers knows a lot about the capital.

F. LVA seulement

When Brian Nayar says ‘You can’t get that from a GPS’ (ll.27-28) he is referring to the practical first-hand knowledge of the whole city and the mental skills and agility which the trained taxi drivers possess.

Document B

G.1) a) London b) Sydney c) black cab

2) This plan is an adventure because it means going around the world and across several continents in a black cab.

H. 1) a- FALSE ‘he had said yes in about one second flat’ (ll.12-13) / b- TRUE ‘I put my doubts about his engineering prowess aside’ (l.12) and ‘Or at least he claimed he could.’ (l.11) 2)Through his answers, we get the impression that Leigh is a very relaxed and laid-back character, who doesn’t take life very seriously.

I. 1) a- in a pub / b- map / c- laptop / d-narrator (probably Paul) / e- Johno / f- Leigh 2) ‘Now, here, you’ll see is where we made our first – and possibly gravest – error of the trip : never plan anything in a pub’ (ll. 20-21)

J. They wanted to drive ‘to the other side of the world in an iconic form of London transport’ (l.14) Also, ‘There were no options other than possibly a yellow New York cab, and it was agreed that that was hardly very British.’ (ll.23-24)

K. Non LVA seulement

1)TRUE ‘Next came the route. London to Sydney seemed as good as any (...)’ (l.24)

2) FALSE ‘As we started looking at the map (…) some bright spark pointed out that a true black cab driver would take the longest route possible’ (ll.26_27)

L. LVA seulement 1) The characters see cab drivers as greedy people who do not hesitate to choose a longer route in order to get more money from their passengers. 2) That is why in the end they decide on the longest route to go from London to Sydney, in order to imitate this behaviour.

Document C

M. The urban environment chosen by the artist is quite dark and dirty, with litter on the street, a bin bag in the bottom right-hand corner, some tags on the black door. The door is also directly under a CCTV camera, giving the impression of a tightly controlled environment.

N. The cab looks like a typical black cab except that it seems to float above the ground, carried by brightly coloured balloons

O. Perhaps the artists wanted to use the bleak setting as a contrast to his brightly coloured and poetic mural. Perhaps the artistic intention was to emphasize the need for fantasy and escape in such a rough environment.

Documents A, B and C

P. In all three documents, cabs represent more than just vehicles for rent. In document A, cabs are linked to tradition and cultural heritage, in document B, the black cab is the starting point of an adventure and in document C, the balloon cab seems to represent a way to escape a rather sad reality.

EXPRESSION NON-LVA, Sujet 1 ou 2

1) June 22nd, Kerala, India

Today was another perfect example of why planning a round-the-world expedition should never happen in a pub. I remember how worried I was about mechanical problems at the start of this adventure, but looking back, the cab and its mechanical glitches have been the least of our problems so far. Instead of taking a mechanic and an ex-pilot-student with me, I should have hired a weather-man to help.

Yes, that’s right, the three of us bright sparks have managed to land in India – in Kerala to be more accurate – right in the middle of the monsoon season. And let me tell you, it is something ! Our poor little black cab fighting against torrents of water pelting down from the sky, streets transformed into canals… What a nightmare ! Of course our brave little cab is no boat and we finally had to surrender and call it a day, just before lunch.

We didn’t even park, there was no point, ours was the only car in the streets, and we, the only people foolish enough to try driving in this weather.We just found a slightly higher spot to stop, hoping that no flood would wash the cab away. At least I am sure that we made a few Indian locals laugh and there it is, the essence of our trip : bringing British humour to the world !

 

2) Tim Cahill, an Australian sportsman once said ‘ a journey is best measured in friends rather than miles’ which seems paradoxical since a journey is basically a trip undertaken to discover a place, or to go from one city to another, with a strating point and a destination. Miles and distances do seem pretty important in this context, and friendships, if they happen, more like a collateral benefit than the essence of the journey itself.

However, there may be a different way of looking at this quote. Journeying does mean going from one place to another, and usually leaving home for quite awhile. And as a result, we leave our daily comfort zone, confront ourselves to the world and discover new places. We also usually meet new people, either travelling companions or people who live in the places we wanted to explore and discover.

Sharing our appreciation for the journey with these people often creates friendships. In fact it could even be argued that meeting people and exchanging viewpoints is the very essence of travelling. Learning new customs, trying new types of food, discovering new cultures and creating friendships is what leaves the most lasting impressions and creates the best memories.No one really cares about the ‘I heart NYC’ t-shirt that they bought during their stay in the Big Apple, but the memories of shared afternoons in Central Park, tchatting and eating hot-dogs will never go away.

3)1) June 22nd, Kerala, India

We didn’t even park, there was no point, ours was the only car in the streets, and we, the only people foolish enough to try driving in this weather.

We just found a slightly higher spot to stop, hoping that no flood would wash the cab away. All I could think about was the number of days we would have to be delayed while waiting for the damned rain to stop. I was furious. Leigh, as laid back as usual didn’t seem to mind and Johno looked like this was all some hilarious joke to him. Of course, the locals were politely trying not to openly laugh at us, except for the children who pointed at our defeated cab and giggled like mad. For a moment I hesitated between exploding in anger and giggling along with them, and then I remembered that this adventure had all been a joke since the beginning and that I was probably taking things too seriously. So I laughed.

4) Pointers :

* Discuss : Explain + give your opinion

* Remember to give examples

* Here contrast the world (= reality) / ‘any dream’

* Think of your own travels, or books you may have read such as The Alchemist in which the narrator says that some people prefer dreaming to actually making their dreams come true, for fear that the truth be less perfect than their imagination. But if you only dream, you never experience the world, you cannot be changed by it.
