    Cinderella was created by Charles Perrault. It is a fairy tale.

    Today, it is a Disney movie.


    She lives in a manor with her mean/nasty/bad/evil/terrible

    /horrible/cruel step-mother and her two awful half-sisters.


    She is wearing a simple/plain dress, an apron and a headscarf.

    She is cleaning / scrubbing the floor.

    She is kneeling / She is on her knees. ("kn": le "k" ne se prononce pas)



     A dream is a wish your heart makes

    When you're fast asleep
    In dreams 
    you will lose your heartaches
    Whatever you wish 
    for, you keep

    Have faith in your dreams 
    and someday
    Your rainbow will come smiling through
    No matter how your heart is grieving
    If you keep on believing

    the dreams 
    that I wish will come true 

    Match these words with their synonyms : 

            heartaches = sadness

            have faith = believe

            grieving = suffering

            keep on = continue

            will come true = will be realized


    WILL + BASE VERBALE ( ou BV = verbe non conjugué)

    ·        In dreams you will lose your heartaches

    ·        Your rainbow will come smiling through

    ·        The dreams that I wish will come true

    Qu’exprime Cendrillon en utilisant “will” ? 

    Si on croit en ses rêves :

    - Nos peines de cœur disparaitront

    - Nous serons joyeux.

    - Nos rêves  se réaliseront  dans le futur.
