SECTION I
Reading Aloud

CARD A

     Deux ou trois ans après les élections, les populations regardent les chefs politiques avec suspicion. Ils avaient promis des lendemains chantants aux gens pendant les élections mais une fois élus, ils ont oublié les promesses ! Mais de quelles promesses s’agit-il ?

     Les promesses comprennent des meilleures routes, des meilleures salaires, la gratuite de l’éducation et de la santé, la transparence et la responsabilité financière, la fin de corruption, la justice sociale, la démocratie …… et la liste continue. Mais pourquoi les populations sont-elles déçues ?

     Le premier problème est le manque d’éducation civique qui aurait permis aux électeurs de comprendre leurs responsabilités. Beaucoup vont aux élections sans savoir comment évaluer les candidats politiques. De plus, beaucoup sont illettrés et très pauvres. Avec des populations pauvres et illettrées, il est possible de les manipuler avec un peu d’argent et bien sur avec des mensonges.

SECTION I
Reading Aloud

CARD B

     Un ou deux mois après être sortis de l’école, les étudiants semblent être sans direction précise. Ceux qui n’ont pas encore décidé quoi faire de leur vie tournent soit vers leurs parents soit leurs amis pour le conseil. Malheureusement, la plupart perdent direction grâce au mauvais conseil qu’ils reçoivent de leurs camarades.

     Pour ceux qui sont assez chanceux d’avoir choisi leurs carrières avant de quitter l’école, ils entrent dans les collèges tout en attendant leurs résultats. De nos jours, on doit se munir des connaissances supplémentaires à part ses bons résultats. C’est ainsi qu’ils rejoignent des cours de l’informatique ou entrent à l’auto-école. Quelques-uns ont même la chance d’être embauchés à mi-temps dans certaines entreprises.

     Cependant, on a entendu parler de quelques filles qui jettent leur avenir à la poubelle au profit de se marier avec des types qui ne s’intéressent pas du tout à elles ! Quelle catastrophe ! Il faut les conseiller contre une telle action qui est dirigée par des fausses promesses du paradis à la perte éternelle de leur rêve.
