Les questions à l’épreuve d’expression orale

Friday, March 14th, 2014

Pour la deuxième partie de votre épreuve d’expression orale l’examinateur vous posera des questions en lien avec la notion que vous avez choisie.

It is impossible to know exactly what questions you could be asked but you can think about the sort of questions that could be asked and prepare your answers beforehand. If you are more at ease with a notion, try to mention it in your conclusion!

Here are just a few ideas :

Who do you consider to be your hero? Why?

Is it a sportsperson, an actor, an artist, a pop star, a member of your family, an ordinary hero such as a fireman? Why is this person considered a role model?

Why are myths and heroes important to our society?

Do you think that myths and heroes can teach us a lesson?

Can you think of an anti-hero? Can you talk about their behaviour?

What myth does your document remind you of?


Places and Forms of Power

What in your opinion is the most dangerous form of power?

Can you give an example of a power struggle?

What are the limits to power? How is power abused?

What do you think are the most important inventions of the past 50 years?

How has internet changed today’s world?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of progress? Illustrate your ideas/give examples.

Spaces and Exchanges

Would you like to travel abroad? Which country would you like to live in? Why?

Have you ever travelled abroad? Which countries have you visited?

What did you learn from your trips abroad?

What kind of exchanges are there in today’s world? (trade, financial, sport, social networking, education…..)

What impact does globalisation have on exchanges?

How are these exchanges influenced by modern technologies? Do the new technologies make exchanges easier?

What do we gain from these exchanges? What do people to immigrate to another country bring to the new country? (examples)

les héros d’aujourd’hui :

La notion de héros est aujourd’hui très confuse. Les nouveaux héros des jeunes aujourd’hui peuvent être fictifs ou réels, mais ne sont pas connus simplement pour le fait extraordinaire, ou même leur bonnes actions. Ils représentent un modèle, un exemple de beauté ou de talent: une actrice, un chanteur, un joueur de foot….

Mais des vrais héros existent encore aujourd’hui!
