Écrire l’histoire de La faim dans la monde

Write a story about World Hunger

C’est le soir, à huit heures pour être précis. Hervé et Nicole sont à la table. Ils prennent le dîner devant la télévision. À la télé est une émission titré La faim dans la monde. C’est ironique, car monsieur et madame Legrand ont beaucoup à manger! En fait ils mangent: du pain, du poulet, des carottes, des petits pois, du riz, et de la viande – le pain seul est assez pour un petit pays! Comme boissons ils ont de l’eau minerale et du vin – tous les deux du vin rouge et vin blanc. Le pain est dans une grande corbeille, et monsieur Legrand le mange goulûment! Pendant qu’ils mangent et regardent, il pensent au sujet de la faim – quand madame Legrand apporte à Hervé son fruit, il décide de faire quelque chose pour les aider. Ils sont absorbés par l’émission, et, après Nicole a debarrassé la table et a fait la vaisselle, ils parlent de la faim ~

Hervé: “Oh-là-là, c’était une émission horrifique. Il faut aider les pauvres personnes!”

Nicole: “Oui, je suis d’accord. Quelle dommage – c’est vraiment affreux! Qu’est-ce qu’on peut faire pour les aider?”

Hervé: “C’est très triste – il me fait pleurer! On peut acheter des produits et les envoyer aux pays en difficulté.”

Nicole: “Bonne idée! Demain, je vais faire les courses.”

Hervé: “Et je vais chercher quelque boîtes en carton. Je pense qu’il y a quelques-uns dans le garage et aussi dans le placard.”

Le lendemain, après que Nicole a fait les courses et Hervé a cherché les boîtes, ils commencent à mettre les provisions dans des paquets. Ils utilisent des ciseaux, de la ficelle, des étiquettes et un peu de colle.

Enfin, avec un élan d’enthousiasme et beaucoup de fierté, ils marchent à la poste pour envoyer les paquets. [^]

It’s the evening, 8pm to be precise. Hervé and Nicole are at the table, eating dinner in front of the television. On telly is a programme called World Hunger. It’s ironic, as Mr and Mrs Legrand have lots to eat! In fact they are eating: bread, chicken, carrots, peas, rice, and meat – the bread alone is enough for a small country! They have mineral water and wine to drink – both red and white wine. The bread is in a large basket, and Mr Legrand is eating it greedily! Whilst they eat and watch, they think about ‘hunger’ – when Mrs Legrand brings Hervé his fruit, he decides to do something to help those in need. They are absorbed by the programme, and, after Nicole has cleared the table and done the washing up, they talk about hunger ~

Hervé: “Oh my, that was a horrific programme. Those poor people need help!”

Nicole: “Yes, I agree. What a shame – it really is frightful! What can we do to help them?”

Hervé: “It’s very sad – it’s making me cry! We could buy provisions and send them to the afflicted countries.”

Nicole: “Good idea! I will go shopping tomorrow.”

Hervé: “And I will look for some cardboard boxes. I think there are some in the garage and also in the cupboard.”

The next day, after Nicole has done the shopping and Hervé has found the boxes, they begin putting the provisions in packages. They use scissors, string, labels, and a bit of glue.

Finally, with zestful enthusiasm and a lot of pride, they walk to the post office to send the packages.
