Les artcicles : correction exercice 3


It had all started on October 22. Six years earlier.

Lloyd Delamotte had got up before dawn, like most days. He was to lecture at a teachers' training college, as he did several times a month. His head was full of thoughts and worries at that time. First, he had to deal with an aggressive IRS inspector whose aim was more to cause him trouble than find anything wrong with his books. An audit had been done by the IRS after receiving an anonymous letter of denunciation written by an unidentified colleague. His notoriety and professional success had always caused problems in the past with jealous colleagues, but it had never gone this far. Then he had to organize his life so that his ailing wife would not feel so abandoned. This was a difficult task due to his regular schedule at the high school, the lectures at the Sorbonne, the numerous travels across the country to teach, train, and lecture, and the work he had started for his publisher. The days were full and the nights short. But he loved the excitement and contact with his various audiences, whether they were older teens, junior college students, university students, young trainees, or older, more experienced teachers. His work life was full, and he loved the feeling that he was doing something useful for the forward march of education in his country. But his other life, well, he’d rather not think about it just yet.


While shaving that morning, he was looking forward to a challenging new day: his role was to make a group of trainees aware of the problems involved in the teaching of English grammar. He had specialized in this subject a few years earlier in his thesis. It was on the relationship between the semiology of movie pictures and the words, phrases, and grammar forms used by the characters in the selected film scenes. The originality of the approach had earned him a certain form of recognition with his in-the-field colleagues, and in university circles. Now he had discovered that he enjoyed the research that so engrossed him, but more than that, it was the sharing of what he had found that thrilled him.


As the razor blade worked its careful way along his jaw line, he gradually awoke to the day's prospects. The worries began to erase from his mind, helped by the fact that he never listened to the radio while washing, shaving or showering. He had given up long ago on the world, politics, and the media, and he was sick of the constant news rehash that all radio stations fed their listeners. He loved the quiet moment that he spent in his antiquated bathroom every morning while making himself presentable to his various audiences.
