j'ai mon Bac d'expression écrite d'anglais, d'ici quelques semaines, et je voulais savoir si quelqu'un avait la gentillesse de corriger les fautes, ou les structures de phrases fausses. Encore merci pour vos réponses!
I’m going to talk about the notion of spaces and exchanges. To begin with, I’d like to give a definition of the notion: an exchange is an act of giving and receiving something else in return. It can be also a continuous movement or circulation. There are various types of exchanges as people, trade or media. On the other hand, the concept of spaces is also related with exchanges.
Indeed, I would like to illustrate this notion through the theme of the American Expansion. For many years, the United States have been in expansion, but there are different domains like countries, spaces and technology.
We may wonder how Americans managed to become a superpower?
So as to illustrate the theme, I have chosen four documents.
To my mind, the documents that best illustrate the notion are John Gast’s painting dating from 1872, then two quotes, one of George Bush and the other of John Kennedy, and to finish a picture who talk about the “Space Conquest”.
John Gast’s painting deals with “Manifest Destiny” the doctrine that Americans used to justify taking tribal lands from the native Indians and take over the whole continent from east to west. John Gast painted a long blond-haired woman dressed in a flowing white gown is floating westward through the air. This woman refers to an allegory of liberty, democracy and progress. “The Spirit Frontier” is moving from East to West as represent people on the painting and symbolizes the Westward movement of America. This art was an idealistic portrayal of Manifest Destiny.
When George Bush was president, he said that the liberty of America is “an everwidening circle”. He had ensured that in foreign states and here at home, they would extend the frontiers of freedom. He stands for the power of American expansion. Moreover, John Kennedy denounces those who “waited and rested” and “wished to look behing them”. While he sides with those who moved forward and so will space to built United States.
The picture of “Space Conquest” stresses the fact that United States has a very important place in the world. Effectively, we can see an astronaut saluting the American flag on the moon. John Kennedy launched the “Space Conquest”, again, it’s a new form of frontier to approve the superpower of America. He coined the expression of “New Frontier” to continue the move forward. We can also talk about the GAFA’s. It draws our attention to the fact that the United States is still dominating the world through the digital frontier.
Since, its creation, American has always been in expansion in different forms and it still symbolizes democracy, freedom, and Manifest Destiny. The Americans managed to become a superpower, the superpower in the world, because they understood how dominate the world with different concepts of frontier like the digital frontier, the Space Conquest, the East to West movement. Then, we may wonder if the expansion of American has some impacts on American’s life? We can take for example the case of obesity or the relocation of some homes in America.
