Si c’est trop difficile voici la transcription pour vous aider à répondre aux questions:

Tous les ans, au moment de Pâques, des œufs, des lapins et des cloches en chocolat font rêver les gourmands ! Et quand vient le weekend, la chasse aux œufs en chocolat est officiellement ouverte ! Pourtant, avant les années 1800, on ne s’offrait pas des œufs en chocolat mais de véritables œufs de poules.

Alors d’où vient cette tradition des œufs de Pâques ?Il faut savoir que l’œuf symbolise l’origine du monde, le renouveau.

Pendant l’antiquité, les Perses s’offraient des œufs de poule au printemps, pour marquer la fin de l’hiver et la renaissance de la nature.

En Europe, la fête de Pâques commémore la résurrection du Jésus Christ et la fin du Carême. Autrefois très respecté, le Carême est une période où les chrétiens se privent volontairement de certains plaisirs dont celui de manger des œufs.  Pour fêter la fin de ces privations, ils s’offraient les œufs pondus durant cette période.

Au milieu du XIXe siècle, les chocolatiers mélangent du sucre, du beurre et du chocolat en poudre, et obtiennent une pâte qu’on peut verser dans des moules. Et c’est ainsi que naît l’œuf en chocolat et plus tard, les cloches, les lapins, la friture. Selon les régions, c’est soit les Cloches, soit le Lapin de Pâques, qui déposent les œufs un peu partout dans les jardins.

Au final, peu importe qui cache les œufs, l’important c’est de se régaler !

Réponses aux questions:
  1. Fill in the blank: “Des oeufs, des lapin et des ______ en chocolat font rêver les gourmands”. cloches (bells)
  2. What were people giving each other for Easter before the 19th century? Real chicken eggs.
  3. What does the “egg” symbolise? The orgin of the world
  4. During the antiquity, which civilisation celebrated the arrival of Spring by giving each others eggs? Persians
  5. What did Christians not eat during Lent? Eggs
  6. When were chocolate eggs first created? In the middle of the 19th century
  7. In the end, what’s the most important thing? To enjoy the chocolate

Keep on practicing your Duolingo!

Bonnes fêtes de Pâques!

2019/20 – 2nd years – Semaine du 26 mars au 2 avril

Chers élèves,

First of all: Well done to you all! I can imagine that with the recent changes that happened your routine may have been a little challenging. However I hope you are enjoying spending time with your family, hopefully enjoying the sun too and especially loving some French!

On this note, here is this week’s assignments. Youpi! (as French people say). And to start this second week of remote learning fun I am adding a new feature “Hangouts”.

Hangouts” is the messaging platform from Google suite that teachers are using to correspond with their class. I have created a new conversation called “Français 2024” (since you will be graduating in 2024) where you can ask any questions you may have regarding the assignments or anything related to French. I would greatly appreciate if you could please keep this platform for anything related to our French classes.

A reminder, FOLENS, the publishers of your French textbook are making the ebook available to all, in case you don’t have it. Here are the instructions:

  • Go to FolensOnline.ie and click register
  • Select Teacher
  • Fill in a username, email and password

Bon courage et à très vite,

Mr Porzadny
