Ik moet voor Engels een spreekbeurt geven, en nu vroeg ik me af of iemand dit even wil nakijken op grammatica fouten, dus foute zinsconstructies en fout gebruik van tijden van de werkwoords vormen... Ik moet het spreken dus gewone taalfouten zijn niet echt belangrijk ... Alvast bedankt.



Everybody in this room has read one book at least. Maybe because they like to read, maybe because you have to, because the school compels you to read. We grew up with television these days. Our parents didnít. And I remember my mother telling me, when I was young, that I should read a book once in stead of watching television all the time. Well I think I reacted like all of you would do. I said that reading is boring. Every once in time she recommended me to at least try to read a book, but I never did.
But like you, school made me read. And we got that little list of books, which were allowed. So I tried a book of the list and I actually enjoyed reading it. Because I could use my imagination to create the world the characters were living in and I could make up how the looked and staff.
I guess a lot of people still do not read or chose a book that is also a movie. So they can watch the movie, easy right? And sometimes that can be a good thing. Most people like movies, because they can escape from reality for 2 hours. You donít have to think, because they created everything for you. And sometimes people get so excited about the movies they read the book after all, after watching the movie.
Let talk about a movies I think everyone saw. Lord of the rings. The book is from way back. My parents read the book and loved it. But now itís popular again, because people loved the movie. A lot of people started to read the 2nd and the 3rd book because they got curious how thing would end.
But why this movie, why this book? I can tell the same story about Harry Potter. A lot of people read the book in Dutch, but now they are allowed to read it for English and French. And they read it because they loved the movie.
But I ask you the same question, why this book, why this movie, and why now? I think I know the answers to those questions. Now days we live in a world were people donít feel save anymore. I can tell you about September 11th. You all have seen it on television. Terrorism is a big issue now and people didnít feel save anymore. The United States of America is now preparing a war against Iraq, because President George W. Bush thinks Iraq has links to terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda, and might supply weapons of mass destruction to militants. I think they just want to maintain any source for oil. But thatís not irrelevant. We see this in little in the Netherlands. A half year ago there was a bald gay man who said people didnít feel save anymore and the reason of that were the foreigners. And because people thought that other people didnít felt save anymore because Mister Fortuyn said so, they thought, those people probably think that for a reason, so maybe Iím not save either. So we all didnít felt save anymore. My point, yes I actually going to make a point, is that people because of those feelings need to escape from reality. And there is their solution: fantasy. In fantasy there are wars and there are people murdered, but it isnít real, because dragons do not exist. And thatís exactly what we want and need. Now day we need to go away from the cruel world we live in. We like to live, maybe for just 2 hours, in a fantasy world, right on our very own couch, just to feel save againÖ

Zo moet 'ie al beter zijn... kan niet garanderen dat het foutloos is , maar de ergste fouten zijn er denk ik wel uit.

Oh ja, en let er ff op dat "save" iets anders is als "safe"

*1 = -Because- weggelaten, anders lijkt het een lange zin tijdens de spreekbeurt, en het verband is zo ook wel duidelijk

Gewoon een opmerking: Je zegt dat mensen liever een film zien om zo 2 uur te kunnen ontsnappen aan de werkelijkheid. Als je een goed boek leest (zoals LotR), ben je veel langer bezig en ontsnap je ook aan de realiteit.

Hier maak je wel een goed punt ja. Ik ga eens kijken of ik dat kan inbouwen

Verder bedankt beide...
