Mon roi et conquérant du nom d'Utopie,
Un prince de haute renommé et d'un immortel succès,
A fait de moi une île qui jadis n’existait pas,
Débordante de richesses du monde,
par plaisir et consolation.
Je suis l'un de ceux sans philosophie,
Qui a formé pour beaucoup une cité philosophique,
Et la mienne n'a rien de dangereux à transmettre,
Il est meilleur de recevoir, je suis prêt
avec tout mon cœur
We learnt about Michelle Bolduc's life. She travelled across the USA. She went from Massachusetts to Oregon then from Oregon to Arizona. She speaks English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
Moreover, we discovered the story of Babel where there is only one language spoken but then God punished the inhabitants of the city and made them speak several languages.
She also showed us some video clips, for example an extract from “La cour de Babel” which features some teenagers who are from different countries around the world.
Mrs Bolduc helped us to translate the first page of Thomas More's most famous book, Utopia.
Eventually, we enjoyed the time spent with her. She was really funny, enthusiastic in her speaking, and was kind with the class. It was interesting that someone came from abroad to introduce herself and share her knowledge.
