L’adjectif possessif apporte des informations de genre, de nombre, et de personne (information concernant le possesseur).
–Ma veste / Mon manteau.
–Votre travail mérite tous nos compliments.
L’adjectif possessif : « Ma » est accordé en genre et en nombre avec le mot « veste », comme c’est le même cas pour les autres adjectifs possessifs (Mon, mes, votre, nos…etc.).
L’adjectif possessif s’établit ainsi en relation entre ce qui est possédé et :
– Celui (ou ceux) qui parle (nt): mon chien, notre chien.
– Celui (ceux) à qui l’on parle: ton chien, votre chien.
– Celui (ceux) dont on parle: son chien, leur chien.
Remarque : La distinction de genre ne peut se faire que si possesseur et possédé sont au singulier.
Utilisation de l’adjectif possessif :
–Devant un mot féminin commençant par une voyelle ou par un h muet, on utilise mon, ton, son au féminin.
Sa belle histoire ==> Son histoire.
L’adjectif possessif indique très souvent un lieu social (parenté, rapport professionnel, utilisation, etc.).
Mon père – Mes voisins – ma secrétaire.
Les ouvriers occupent leur usine.
J’ai perdu mon chemin.
L’adjectif peut s’utiliser également, dans certains cas, à la première personne, lorsque l’on s’adresse à un supérieur.
Cet usage du possessif comme marque de respect persiste à l’intérieur de mots comme : Monsieur, Madame, Mademoiselle, Monseigneur, etc.
Dans le cas où la possession (l’appartenance) est évidente, comme pour les parties du corps, l’usage veut que l’on n’utilise pas l’adjectif possessif si la personne est déjà clairement exprimée.
J’ai mal au ventre ==> J’ai mal à mon ventre (ne se dira pas).
If we report what another person has said, we usually do not use the speaker’s exact words (direct speech), but reported (indirect) speech. Therefore, you need to learn how to transform direct speech into reported speech. The structure is a little different depending on whether you want to transform a statement, question or request.
When we are reporting things in the present, future or present perfect we don’t change the tense.
When we tell people what someone has said in the past, we generally make the tense ‘more in the past’.
However, when we are reporting something that was said in the past but is still true, it is not obligatory to make the tense ‘more in the past’. The choice is up to the speaker. For example:
“The train doesn’t stop here.”
“I like Sarah.”
When we are reporting what was said, we sometimes have to change other words in the sentence.
We have to change the pronoun if we are reporting what someone else said. Compare these two sentences. In each case the person actually said “I don’t want to go.”
We have to change words referring to ‘here and now’ if we are reporting what was said in a different place or time.
Compare these two sentences. In each case the person actually said “I’ll be there at ten tomorrow.”
Now compare these two sentences.

How to speak English fluently – Importance and Tips
You know the language, the grammar and even the pronunciations. However, you might find it difficult to speak flawless English without hesitation for five whole minutes. That is due to lack of fluency. Your brain knows all the words, but since you have not trained it enough, it is not able to bring forth those words as quickly as needed to speak fluently.
Just like grammar and vocabulary, fluency in English is a mark of a learned person. Fluency helps you sell your ideas, communicate your thoughts to others, convince, reach out, and even impress with a speech that is clear, confident, to the point and crisp.
You can improve fluency of a language only by talking. You need to go about learning a new language just like you learnt your mother tongue. You listened and you repeated. You do the same with English. Most people have excellent written expression but when it comes to verbal, they are stumped.
You get enough time to repeat your thoughts in your head before writing or typing. However, while speaking, you have to be quick. The other person does not have all the time in the world to listen to you stammering and grope through words. By the time you actually finish your sentence, the listener would have forgotten what you began in the first place. Being fluent helps your thoughts to be heard clearly and correctly.
Listen to the common phrases, words and diction. Listening to news broadcasts such as BBC and CNN will be of great help. Repeat newly learnt phrases with a colleague or family member. Speak aloud. Muttering in your head will not help because your mouth is not used to moving that fast or used to certain set of words. Listen and repeat.
Read good quality books by famous authors and good English newspapers. You will find many new words by reading books. This will improve your vocabulary. Understand the context in which the new words are used. Use them in sentences while speaking to colleagues and family or friend. Do not make it sound too artificial.
Communicate in English as much as possible. It is all right to be wrong. It is totally fine to make mistakes. You learn from your mistakes and move on. Your mental block could also be a hindrance for fluency. That means that the thought ‘I am poor in verbal expression’ can make you stammer. So do not just talk. Talk confidently. Talk to convince. Talk to take people by storm. That is how you improve English. Once this mental block clears, your fluency will improve on its own.
Follow these simple tips to improve fluency. Believe in yourself and never shy away from mistakes. Take them seriously and vow not to repeat the mistake ever again. In addition, do not forget to listen, read and talk your way to fluency.

Creedence Clearwater Revival, often shortened to Creedence and abbreviated as CCR, was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The band consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriterJohn Fogerty, his brother rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed the roots rock, swamp rock, and blues rock genres. Despite their San Francisco Bay Areaorigins, they portrayed a Southern rock style, with lyrics about bayous, catfish, the Mississippi River, and other popular elements of Southern United States iconography, as well as political and socially-conscious lyrics about topics including the Vietnam War.
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s music is still a staple of U.S. radio airplay; the
band has sold 26 million albums in the United States alone. Creedence Clearwater Revival was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Rolling Stone ranked the band 82nd on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Their musical influence can be heard in many genres, including southern rock, grunge, roots rock, and blues.
“Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” is a song written by John Fogerty and released as a single in 1971 from the album Pendulum (1970). The song charted highest in Canada, reaching number one on the RPM 100 national singles chart in March 1971. In the U.S., in the same year it peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart (where it was listed as “Have You Ever Seen the Rain? / Hey Tonight”, together with the B-side). On Cash Box pop chart, it peaked at number three. In the UK, it reached number 36. It was the group’s eighth gold-selling single.
Some have speculated that the song’s lyrics are referencing the Vietnam War, with the “rain” being a metaphor for bombs falling from the sky. In his review of the song for Allmusic website, Mark Deming suggests that the song is about the idealism of the 1960s and about it fading in the wake of events such as the Altamont Free Concert and the Kent State shootings and that Fogerty is saying that the same issues of the 1960s still existed in the 1970s but that people were no longer fighting for them. However, Fogerty himself has said in interviews and prior to playing the song in concert that the song is about rising tension within CCR and the imminent departure of his brother Tom from the band. In an interview, Fogerty stated that the song was written about the fact that they were on the top of the charts, and had surpassed all of their wildest expectations of fame and fortune. They were rich and famous, but somehow all members of the band at the time were depressed and unhappy. Thus the line “Have you ever seen the rain, coming down on a sunny day.” The band split in October the following year after the release of the album Mardi Gras.
John Fogerty released a live version of the song on his The Long Road Home – In Concert DVD which was recorded at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, California on September 15, 2005.
