Happy workers

Activity : take 2 minutes to look at the ideas in the three documents.What are the things they share and what are their specificities?

All the documents deal with happiness at work. The first document is a cartoon/comic strip, the second is an infographic and the third one is an article from a professional website. The infographic shows us how beneficial it is to be happy at work : people are healthier and more productive. This is the reason why some companies have decided to hire "Chief Happiness Officers" (CHO). Their role is to implement the best working environment in the company by organising group activities and creating a welcoming workplace.

Grammar Time!

So what is burnout ? Burnout is not just feeling a bit knackered in the mornings, missing a few deadlines, or an inbox full of emails your forget to reply to. It's not being a bit moody or having a few broken nights ' sleep. It's not feeling sad for a few days, or crying when there's no soya milk in Costa.

Grammar Time!

Quantifiers!

a few / few / much / many / little / a little

What's the difference?

Grammar Time!

Quantifiers!

Ils ne prennent jamais de "s" et précèdent des noms (nombrables) au pluriel

Grammar Time!

"a little" et "little"

'little' est suivi de noms indénombrables (exemple : du lait) et peut se traduire par peu de.

'a little' est suivi de noms indénombrables et peut se traduire par un peu de.

Grammar Time!

"many" & "much" : évoquent tous les deux une quantité importante : 'beaucoup de'.


MUCH précède les noms indénombrables :
I don't have much time, and you don't have much money. Je n'ai pas beaucoup de temps, et tu n'as pas beaucoup d'argent.
MANY précède les noms dénombrables :
We have many friends, in many countries. Nous avons beaucoup d'amis, dans beaucoup de pays.
