La retraite à 60 ans

Suite à mon post récent sur les acquis sociaux..... L'âge légal de la retraite est une chose. Je voudrais bien savoir à quel âge les gens prennent leur retraite en pratique - l'âge réel de la retraite, si vous voulez. J'ai entendu prétendre qu'il y a peu de différence à cet égard entre la France et le Royaume-Uni.

Six Français sur dix sont d’accord avec le PS qui défend la retraite à 60 ans (BVA)

Cécile Quéguiner


Plus de la moitié des Français jugent que le gouvernement a "tort de vouloir aller vite dans la réforme" et estiment que le PS a "raison de défendre l’âge légal de départ en retraite à 60 ans". Résultat d’un sondage BVA/Absoluce pour Les Échos et France Info, paru ce matin.
Une majorité de Français (58%) estiment que la position du Parti socialiste, qui défend le maintien de l’âge légal de départ à la retraite à 60 ans, est "légitime car l’âge légal de départ à la retraite est un acquis social et qu’il ne faut pas revenir dessus". Les sympathisants de gauche sont majoritairement de cet avis (70%, contre 36% des sympathisants de droite qui pensent la même chose).
37% des Français pensent au contraire que la position du PS est "démagogique car le recul de l’âge légal de départ à la retraite est nécessaire pour combler le déficit du régime des retraites". Évidemment, ce sont essentiellement des sympathisants de droite.





Par conséquent, les personnes interrogées par BVA jugent majoritairement le rythme de la réforme des retraites trop rapide. Le ministre du travail Éric Woerth a déclaré la semaine dernière qu’il souhaitait qu’un projet de loi soit présenté au parlement à la rentrée de septembre : "il a tort, répondent 61% des sondés, de vouloir aller vite pour mener à terme cette réforme car c’est un sujet délicat qui nécessite du temps et de la concertation".
Enfin, 66% des personnes interrogées jugent "mauvaise la politique économique du gouvernement". Un désaveu qui prend de l’ampleur. C’est quatre points de moins qu’en mars, dans ce même baromètre.
Ce sondage a été réalisé par téléphone les 16 et 17 avril, auprès d’un échantillon représentatif de 1.010 personnes, de 15 ans et plus, selon la méthode des quotas.

  1. A ma connaissance, quelqu'un qui perd son emploi à 57 ans touchera le chômage jusqu'à sa retraite à 60 ans, ce qui revient à peu près à la même chose financièrement. Statistiquement il compte comme un chômeur mais de fait il est à la retraite. J'ignore les chiffres officiels mais on déplore régulièrement dans les médias la mise à l'écart des seniors entre 55 et 60 ans, phénomène qui serait beaucoup plus répondu en France que dans le nord de l'Europe.

5 great zero preparation lesson ideas

When the pressure is on and there are only so many hours on the week, you need a repertoire of zero preparation go-to activities which promote input and/or practice. Here are five you might well find useful.

1. My weekend

We know that listening is the most important yet often neglected skill for language learning. It's also something some pupils find hard to do. To develop listening skill and provide tailored comprehensible input try this:

You tell the class you are going to recount what you did last weekend and that they have to make notes in English. The amount of detail you go into and the speed you go will depend on your class. Talk for about three minutes. If you spent the whole weekend marking, you can always make stuff up!

You then make some true or false (maybe not mentioned too) statements in the target language about what you said in your account. Class gives hands up (or no hands up) answers. This can then lead into a simple pair work task where pupils make up their own tru…

New GCSE resources on frenchteacher

As well as writing resources for the new A-levels, I have in recent months been posting a good range of materials to support the new GCSEs. First exams are not until 2018, but here is what you can find on the site in addition to the many other resources (grammar exercises, texts, video listening etc).

I shall not produce vocabulary lists since the exam board specifications now offer these, with translations.

What teachers are saying about The Language Teacher Toolkit

"The Language Teacher Toolkit is a really useful book for language teachers to either read all the way through or dip into. What I like about it is that the authors Steve Smith and Gianfranco Conti are totally upfront about what they believe to be good practice but back it up with research evidence." (Ernesto Macaro, Oxford University Department of Education)

"I absolutely love this book based on research and full of activities..  The best manual I've read so far. One of our PDs from the Australian Board of Studies recommended your book as an excellent resource.  I look forward to the conference here in Sydney." Michela Pezzi, Teacher, Australia, Facebook)

"Finally, a book for World Language teachers that provides practical ideas and strategies that can actually be used in the classroom, rather than dry rhetoric and theory that does little to inspire creativity in ways that are engaging for both students and teachers alike." (USA teacher, Amazon review)

Making words memorable

Most teachers and researchers would agree that knowing words is even more important than knowing grammar if you wish to be proficient in a language. As linguist David Wilkins wrote in 1972: "Without grammar little can be conveyed, without vocabulary nothing can be conveyed."One of the frustrations for teachers is pupils' inability to retain vocabulary for productive use. A good deal of research has been done over the years into how pupils might better keep words in memory. Two concepts which have come to the fore are spacing and interleaving.

Spaced practice

A 2003 review of the literature by P.Y. Gu reported that most studies show that students frequently forget words after learning them just once.  Anderson and Jordan (1928) discovered that after initial learning, then one week, three weeks and eight weeks thereafter, the recall success was 66%, 48%, 39% and 37% respectively. Other studies have produced similar results. Unsurprisingly, these researchers recommend, space…

The Language Teacher Toolkit review

We were delighted to receive a review of The Language Teacher Toolkit from eminent applied linguist Ernesto Macaro from Oxford University. Macaro is a leader in the field of second language acquisition and applied linguistics. His main research interests are teacher-student interaction and language learning strategies pupils can use to improve their progress.

Here is Professor Macaro's review:
The Language Teacher Toolkit is a really useful book for language teachers to either read all the way through or dip into. What I like about it is that the authors Steve Smith and Gianfranco Conti are totally upfront about what they believe to be good practice but back it up with research evidence. So for example the ‘methodological principles’ on page 11 are supported by the research they then refer to later in the book and this approach is very similar to the one that we (Ernesto Macaro, Suzanne Graham, Robert Woore) have adopted in our ‘consortium project’(http://pdcinmfl.com). The point i…
