anglais 1 spaces and exchanges

I'm going to talk about the notion spaces and exchanges, to biging with I'd like to give a definition of this notion.curently the diferent spaces of the world are more and more connected to each other and there are various types of exchanges: peaple trade media..

So we can wonder about what are the different types of exchanges and how are they perceived by people?

For example, there is the movement of people during holidays and for some people travelling is a fad of society and globalisation has led to mass tourism which is not appreciated by everyone and for others, globalization and travel present opportunities like the creation of new jobs or the gain of independence, for example.

First of all, we studied a photomontage entitled "Small World" created by Martin Parr representing at first sight a beach and a classic sea but by looking more precisely we can see there a roof which shows this is a artificial beach.Through this representation of a vast beach where everything is artificial, false coast, false horizon that seems to make holidaymakers happy, the critical photographer this model of holiday called mass tourism where tourists pile up on the beach.Martin Parr has a negative view of mass tourism linked to globalization.

TR/ Tourism becoming mass tourism would give the illusion of happiness to the tourist and would be very harmful as the main character in the following document demonstrates.

The text from Paradise news, written by David Lodge, a famous British writer, entitled "I have always hated holidays"also addresses the issue of mass tourism. The scene takes place in an airport and relates a conversation between two characters, Bernard Walsh, who is going on holiday to Hawaii, and Sheldrake, who is an anthropologist studying tourism. Both have a very different conception of holidays.Sheldrake explains that vacationing is synonymous with boredom, he doesn't like wasting his time on the beach and has always refused to travel abroad. But he has always been forced to move, first by his family, then by his girlfriend. He demonstrates with arguments that people make mistakes when they enjoy their holidays. For him, tourism has been a source of stress since it has been transformed into mass tourism. Sheldrake demystifies the myth of holidays he compares going on holiday to going to church care he considens that tourism is the new world religion, for him holidaymakers are manipulated to go on holiday and all do the same activities, and are not really really happy. Moreover, he has a will to save the world from this activity he say tourism is wearing out the planet and threatens the environment.Bernard disagrees with sheldrake because he belibes people are cheerful to go o holidays to relax.

There are also exchanges in terms of communication for example in A Cosmopolitant girl, Priti is a young Indian girl with a brother Arjm computer programmer who found a job in America. She therefore told her parents that she too has found a job at DilliTel, a large and very dynamic call centre that is a means of exchange and communication. Australian clients do not know that they are calling abroad, so she will have to do many training courses to deceive clients, she will have to speak English with a perfect Australian accent and become familiar with slang and the details of life.She is very happy to be westernised, because she has been exposed to the outside world through television, which has given her a new vision of life. But her parents refuse that their daughter should not be influenced by Western civilization and culture and her emancipation. In conclusion, it can be said that globalization and economic progress have changed Priti's life by making her more open to the world and more independent, as well as that of her parents who are confronted with new values and a new world.
