Comme beaucoup de monde en ce moment je prépare les synthèses des oraux du Bac. Serait-il possible que vous me disiez ce que vous pensez de cette synthèse et de corriger les fautes éventuelles s'il vous plaît?
Merci d'avance à ceux qui m'aideront
In this sequence “Idea of progress”, we focused our attention on progress through two texts.
The first is an extract from an article of a magazine entitled Education Week On The Web written by Debra Viadero in 2000 ( two thousand) which presents the situation of Daleidy Grullon, an immigrant student in the USA.
The second is also an extract from an article of a magazine entitled The Guardian Weekly written by Luke Harding which presents the arrival of Mac Donald’s in India, a country where eating beef is forbidden.
For immigrants family, education is a key to social promotion, that’s why the statistics shown that it’s common for immigrants students to do better in school that American-born students. Although they have difficulty in understanding English at the beginning, they have better results than American students because they work hard.
Despite their difficulties, despite they have to rely on themselves, they rank among the best because they put a high value on education. Furthermore their parents think it’s essential that their children should do well in school, and children doesn’t want to crush their hopes and to let them down, they want to reward their parents for their sacrifices, for what they have done for them.
Unlike American-born students who take education for granted, immigrants students known that education is a chance, it makes them realize they doesn’t feel like doing the same job as their parents who, despite they work hard, have difficulty in making end meets. Immigrants students understand that the only way to have a better life is to succeed in school and they know that succeeding requires efforts.
In the 21st century, we live in a globalized world with positive sides like the creation of jobs or the communication which is now easier, but also negative sides like world company who try to impose their culture, however, some try to adapt.
For instance Mac Donald’s opened its first restaurant in India about 17 years ago. Although it was risky, Mac Donald’s decided to take up the challenge and nowadays, they managed to attract customers by selling mutton and chicken in a country where cows are sacred and eating beef is forbidden. It’s all the more curious that Mac Donald’s should come to India as the country as revered the cows for thousands of year but it’s logic because India represent a huge potential market of 1bn people. Had they sold beef, they wouldn’t have attracted customers because Indians are unlikely to change their eating habits. For instance, KFC only stayed in India for 2 years because he has refused to adapt to Indian culture, and being in a westernized city didn’t prevent them from being vandalized.
The presence of Mac Donald’s in India is a sign of evolution of our society. Globalization leads to standardization of society and trade.
So, education and progress are bonded because it’s the well educated people who results the progress. Furthermore education bring at personal progress, who subsequently develop. As far as I’m concerned, I think that education is important when we live in our westernized society because education allow us to climb the social ladder.
Globalization is a sign of progress because it has opened new markets, it has created jobs and people can get to know and understand each other better. However globalization and the expansion of international trade and new technologies can contribute to standardization, it has opened new borders but the external influences can affect or even destroy a country’s traditional culture and identity.
