Exercise 1:

The first situation where Hélène needs to speak in English, is when the visitors

are British or American. Then, outside of July and August, many tourist sites

only set visits in English and in French. Since English is the International

language, they must give guided tours in English for many different

thoroughly prepare their presentation the way that just describes. Then, they

should make a series of notes, but they shouldn’t write down the whole

presentation or they would be tempted to read. “Someone reading a piece of

paper just looks and sounds unprofessional.” She also adds that the English
