Hi guys,

today we worked on the text at the origin of the movie we had watched before the holidays, Philadelphia. 

Here is what we said about it:



The scene takes place at Joe Miller's office (a lawyer who is an old acquaintance of Andrew's). Andrew has come to sue his ex-boss from a big law firm because he says he was wrongfully fired. Joe is skeptical and not interested. He wants Andrew to go out because he is both scared to sue this powerful company and to be contaminated with AIDS.

In this extract, we learn that:
* Andrew has a partner /lover = he is gay 
* he is also a lawyer
* "KS" - he has a cancer



Here is the vocab ulary from the text refering to:

1- job

incompetence / dismissed / firm / office / fired

2- illness

cancer / symptoms / ks / aids / pneumonia / medication / diagnosed / lesions

3- law

lawyer / (to) sue / law suit / law firm

4- body

face / lesion / forearm / forehead / leg / skin



- ceux qui ont "oublié" de faire leur travail pour aujourd'hui (film poster and plot lines), c'est pour demain, derniers délais.

- avec les mots de vocabulaire relevés dans le texte, préparer une phrase / une série de phrase reprenant l'ensemble des idées du texte.

- préparez-vous à un contrôle de vocabulaire sur la séquence.
