• Hi guys!

    Today's lesson is written by Youri.

    We watched the following video:

    Here is what we said:

    It is the trailer of the Groundhog Day with Bill Murray.

    It is a fantastic comedy telling the story of a man who lives the same day, over and over.

    He wakes up at 6 o’clock, takes a shower and meets the same people. The day which is repeated is the Groundhog Day in Pennsylvania.

    The main character is a weather man who is doing a report about the famous celebration.

    Then he discovers that he is stuck in the same day. First he feels nervous/anxious and even bored because it is boring day.

    Then he discovers that he is immortal a god and that he can do whatever he wants.

    He will become a better man at the end of the film.

     


    Then we resumed our work on the text. Here is what we said:
