Vos devoirs à rendre (assignments that are due ASAP)!
1- Complete Duolingo assignments or pick a topic where you need improvement. You should complete at least 4 levels (assignments).
2- As stated in the beginning of this course, you have to watch a news segments and share a recorded oral response. Your response will be about 1 minute long and will be about your thoughts on the piece (je pense que...). At this point, you have to share 2 recordings before the end of this week; one for last week if you haven't done so and one for this week.

Quinn's response
Une réponse à un segment du journal télévisé
J’ai lu une article sur le G20, “‘Non élue’, ‘mondaine’... Tollé autour d'Ivanka Trump remplaçant son père au G20”. Ivanka Trump a remplacé son père au G20. Tout le monde a été surpris par le decision. Ivanka n’a pas d'expérience diplomatique. Et plus, elle n’est que conseillère. Le protocole indique que le remplacement d’un chef d’Etat est autorisé, mais si le replacement est un ministre ou leur “sherpa.” Une critique, Anne Applebaum, une historienne, a dit que Ivanka est “non élue, non qualifiée et non préparée,” mais, bien sur, Trump, était hureaux avec sa fille. D'autres dirigeants, comme Sigmar Gabriel, accusent Trump du nespotisme.

Here's my commentary written in a mix of English and French on a news story from france24 with a link to the article:

The first round of legislative elections in Congo-Brazzaville, located in central Africa, are set for this week. Many candidates have started to post their campaign posters but people may have difficulty understanding the messages, as several of the posters have spelling and grammatical errors. The mistakes have sparked concerns from residents in Congo about the country’s future leadership and whether the candidates are equipped to handle a legislative office post.

Je peux voir comment ce pourrait être inquiétant pour les gens de Congo. J’espere ce peux inspire la population encourager plus qualified dirigeants to run for office.
