pouvez vous me dire de se que vous pense de ma synthèse d'oral d'anglais .merci In history, all societies have somehow defined by the geographical and symbolic space(s) they occupy and how they open up those spaces to what lies farther away. In this presentation we are going to describe how and where exchanges take place between one space another . We will try to explain what they consist in and what the motivations are for those transferts of goods or people . In the second part, in site of the sometimes gloomy current events in order to end on a bright note , we will deal with a global city , London, to see how exchanges have shaped its structure and made it one of the most attractive cities in the world One of the first forms of exchange that springs to mind is commerce. Traditionally, commercial exchanges have always existed since the beginning of time. Even when money didn't exist, people used barter, that is to say they exchanged certain goods against other goods. Afterwards, currencies were invented and we still use them, although their forms might have changed. To state it plainly, people exchange goods for money according to the price. The seller makes a profit. Nowadays, stock brokers, or traders, in the stock exchange (in NYC it is called Wall Street) buy and sell stocks (or parts of the capital of companies), or invest money for banks. Some companies export their products abroad. Besides, people also travel from one space to another either for work, or for economical reasons, or because they want to escape danger. Indeed, it is sometimes necessary for certain populations to move to another place, either because they are unhappy or because they are persecuted in their home country. Consequently, they become migrants in spite of themselves, for economical reasons, like Africans who risk their lives in the hope of a better life in Europe.. Others are deprived of civil liberties in their countries and flee to save their lives, like Tibetans who are oppressed by China. Currently, we hear a lot in the media about the burning issue of Syrians and people from the Middle-East trying to reach Europe either by sea or by land inn spite of life-threatening dangers. They are blocked on the island of Lampedusa in Italy, or in Greece, or in Turkey. It goes without saying that moving to a different place can also be done for pleasure, out of one’s own free will. Nowadays, thanks to the improvements in transportation, people change spaces when they travel for their holidays. They want to get a break from their daily routine, to discover new ways of life. They are keen on knowing new cultures, their customs, their food habits, their history with their monuments, the weather… One of the consequences is that, in order to understand and compare customs and to exchange ideas, we often need to speak one or more foreign languages. It can’t be denied that our world has never seemed smaller as transportation and telecommunication have accelerated the rythm (pace) of exchanges between different areas. To conconde we can saw new forms of influence and new spaces, are emerging, redefining our conception of space. Therefore (so) nations borrow from one another and extraordinary blends can be found, especially in what is termed as global cities. Let’s examine the case of one of the most famous ones, London. Consequently, If I had to choose a place where to travel to , I would like to go to The USA of study in a bissness school
