COMPREHENSION

DOCUMENT A

1. Where does the scene take place? (city + country)

a) Answer in your own words.

The scene takes place in the United States, in New-York.

b) Justify by quoting two elements from the text (one for the city, one for the country). The two quotes must be different.

"A ski instructor in Vermont" gives us a clue concerning the country, since Vermont is one of the states of the USA."In a chic SoHo loft" l1 gives us an indication of the city, as Soho is a famous New-York neighbourhood. Another indication could be found in the quote "a friend from Columbia LAw" l18, since Columbia University is located in NYC.

 

2. What do you know about the main character? (name, sex, age, marital status)

We know that the main character is a twenty-nine year-old woman named Samantha. She is single.

 

3. Say if the following statements are TRUE or FALSE, and justify each answer with a quote from the text.

a) The main character no longer has a job. True "(...) she had just been freed from a job she despised" l5-6

b) The protagonist has had a gadget stuck into her cellphone for three years. False "The FirmFone, a monstrous little gadget that had been glued to her body" l9-10

4. Complete the summary with the following words (one number=one word):

junior; associate; friends; instructor; partner; law; months; ski; thirteen; left.

Copy the paragraph and underline the words you add.

The main character thinks about two friends. The first one used to go to the same university, studying law, and had recently been promoted tojunior partner at S&P. Over a period of thirteen months, the second one had had a total change of lifestyle. After being a successful associate editor, he had a nervous breakdown and left his job. He is currently a ski instructor

 

DOCUMENT B

6. What do we know about the main character? (name, sex, age, occupation)

DOCUMENTS A AND B

8. In your own words compare the main character’s relation to money in each text. Give two differences. (50 words) 

Whereas in document A, Samantha comes from a social class where earning such amounts of money is nothing exceptional, to Jane Park in Document B, large sums of money are exceptional and set her apart from her social background. Besides, while Samantha spends most of her money to sustain her expensive lifestyle, Jane Park's first idea was to give some of it away to her family members.

 

EXPRESSION

Les candidats des séries ES et S traitent au choix le sujet 1 OU le sujet 2.

1. The main character in document A finally decides to phone his/her mother to tell her about the recent change in his/her life. Imagine their phone conversation. (150 words)

 "Hello?"

   "Hey Mum, how are you?"

   "I'm fine, thanks. What about you darling?"

   "I"m ok, too. Well, mostly. Can we talk?"

   "Yes, sure. What is going on? Are you pregnant?"

   "Mum! No! Of course I'm not pregnant! Why do you always assume... Never mind. I wanted to talk to you because I no longer have a job."

   "You... what? But what happened? Are you alright?"

   "Yes, I'm ok, I think. It's all quite new and a bit of a shock but... I'm... relieved... I think. I just needed to hear your voice."

   "Ok, well... What happened? Were you fired?"

   "Sort of. I left just before they decided to let me go, basically. Do you remember my friend Tom?"

   "Tom... the one who left your firm to become a cowboy in Montana?"

   "Nice to hear that you pay attention when I speak to you, mother... He is now a ski instructor in Vermont."

   "Yes, yes, same difference Sam. What about him?"

   "Hmm, nothing, don't worry Mum. I have to go now. I'll call you later. Bye"

   "But-"

 

2. In document B lines 21 – 22: “Her granny Anne was shocked that they would give such a huge sum to someone so young”. Do you agree with the fact that having a lot of money when you are young can be shocking? Illustrate your answer with examples. (150 words)

I think that the idea of young people having a lot of money is only shocking if you believe that money must be earned, little by little and through hard work. This is the traditional point of view. But in today's world where teenagers become millionaires after creating and selling applications, such as the creator of Summly who sold his app to Yahoo for 30 million dollars in 2013,this point of view may be outdated. 

Sometimes however, people are shocked not because they are jealous but because they fear that teenagers may not possess the maturity required to spend large amounts of money wisely or reasonably. I believe that age is not a guarantee of wisdom and that is why I am no more shocked when young people receive a lot of money than when older people win the lottery. Besides, 17 year-olds are considered responsible enough to join the military in most countries, why not to spend or invest money?
