Beginner Unit 7a (22 activity (ies) 02:24:30) Video and Questions [1 exercises] Wake up sleepyhead! Rise and shine! You're always in a hurry in the morning. Dad takes the children to school before going to work by public transportation. Let's hope nobody's forgotten anything! There's the train, finally! At first sight, the station looks quiet. Suddenly, hundreds and hundreds of people step onto the platform to go to their offices. Dad's somewhere in this huge crowd. What a hive of activity! Some people prefer to take their cars. It may be more comfortable, but you have to constantly brake to stop at traffic lights. You come across all sorts of vehicles on the roads: two-wheelers, four-wheelers, big ones and small ones. The days go on and resemble one another. Come rain or come shine, we follow our routine: children at school, parents at work. In the spring, nature wakes up and blossoms once more. The snow melts and the temperature rises. The landscapes and the countryside regain their colors. After the fruit harvest and grape picking, autumn is already well underway. The leaves change color and begin to fall. In the yard, sweeping up dead leaves is a lot of work. Especially if there are children nearby! Either way, a yard requires constant upkeep. You always have to mow the lawn, water the flowers, till the soil and prune the rosebushes . . . In the winter, the snowfalls and drops in temperature mean dressing warmer. Those who don't do so risk catching a cold or the flu. Sometimes the snow blocks traffic: another day off! The months and seasons go by, but sometimes you have the feeling that time has stopped. Especially around four o'clock in the afternoon! All you can think about is going home. You count the minutes: 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, five o'clock sharp. Finally - you can go home now! The day is over. In the evening, you are tired: you yawn and stretch. Some people, however, still have a hard time falling asleep and they have to count sheep. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10! And what do you dream about? Summer, of course! Of happy moments shared with family or friends, far from the daily routine! But you quickly take on new habits: swimming, reading, eating ice cream, sunbathing, swimming, reading, eating ice cream, sunbathing . . .

Beginner Unit 7b (15 activity (ies) 01:58:45) Video and Questions [1 exercises] It’s surprising what you can find at the end of your garden. Wild flowers... and even smaller yet, insects! Look! This caterpillar can’t even see his friend who’s hiding on the same leaf. His vision is very bad, no doubt, but finding glasses his size is very difficult!

And did you see the praying mantis? Her camouflage is very effective. Nature has given her the best of defenses: invisibility. How annoying to be woken up by an impolite caterpillar! You’ll have to find another leaf to finish your nap. At the very beginning of his life, the caterpillar is yellow and black. He builds a cocoon, metamorphoses and becomes a handsome butterfly. He now has black and orange wings. Overnight he has become the symbol of good weather and everyone loves him. Which isn’t the case for the other creepy-crawlies! Don’t worry, this little black and white kitten in the basket isn’t the dish of the day. Listen to her purr. She’s looking at her 'doggy' friends and would like to play with them. What vitality! The brown dog must bring the stick back to his owner, but the black dog says it’s his. 'Give it to me! It’s mine!' It’s well known that only dogs would play and fight for a piece of wood. But some of our sports may seem just as bizarre to animals. Let’s change location! Let’s go on a safari! There, where the animals are still wild! In the savannah you can find the zebra. From the same family as the horse, he’s got black and white stripes. You’d think he’s wearing pajamas. Even at noon! Look! There are giraffes as well! They’ve got spots, however. With their long neck, they’re sometimes more than fifteen feet tall. They don’t need a ladder to eat the best leaves on the tree. But with a neck like theirs, you don’t want to get a sore throat in the winter! Far from the savannah this horse is running in his field. Like a car, a horse has four speeds. He walks, trots, gallops and bolts. It’s best not to be on his back when he does that. If not, you’ll find yourself in a rodeo. To help you get off, the horse bucks. The dolphin is admired by all children. He’s very talkative but not very understandable!
