On the whole,

a fairly good dictation.

Except... Who can spell except?


E- C- C- E- P- T.

There you are.

E- X- C- E- P- T.

Spelling, Moucheboeuf.

Your weak point.

It's very important, especially

for getting into Normal School.

And punctuation is no less important.

Sentence rhythm depends on it,

and it often guides logical analysis.

Return the notebooks.


Moucheboeuf, write "except"

Franois has to pick up his grandparents

at the train.

Delouche, go with Franois

to Lamothe Station.

Aubertin is lending us his carriage.

Not now. Later.

It can wait until recess.

Open your notebooks.

We'll correct the dictation.

May I go out, sir?

Be quick about it, Meaulnes.

Harmonious music.

Delouche, you're like Moucheboeuf:

on bad terms with H.

I knew Meaulnes had run off,

and I feared someone else

would realize it and yell:

Sir! Meaulnes is leaving!

It was no surprise, but my heart pounded.

I saw the horse and cart.

Augustin Meaulnes

stood racing the cart through the village.

Meaulnes stole the cart!

Everyone back inside.

Make way!

Make way!

That a boy!

You can't go through!

We're on manoeuvres!

Stop! They're firing shells!

I hear a cart.

So do I.

The road was cut off

because of field manoeuvres.

Hello, Grandma.

How you've grown since last time.

We cut through the woods.

- Hello, Grandpa.

- Good evening, rather.

Yes, good evening.

Meaulnes stole the cart

we were going to take.

Who asked you?

Just see to the bags.


Not really stole, I'll explain later.

How you've grown!

Move it, you nag!



No reason to worry yet.

Then why are you trying to reassure me?

Because you take things

too much to heart.

Go inside and calm down,

or you won't be able to sleep.

In any case,
