    2. That person probably thought "by the time the clock stops striking" was supposed to mean the present future, which, if you say: "By the time the clock will have stopped striking, they have 12 grapes in their mouths, a situation that produces much laughter," then they're right, it doesn't make sense at all. But there's no reason to read it as present future. The whole sentence is present simple.

    2. Notable features are things that are "noteworthy" about someone, usually relating to appearance. For example, a mustache, beard, and glasses could be called notable features. Striking features are usually things that are really surprising and hard not to notice about a person. For example, if someone has a strange hairstyle, wears very colorful clothes, or dances in a very strange way, this is a striking feature. Usually, striking features aren't very positive. They are usually seen as strange or weird in some way. Distinguishing features are basically notable features, but are more related to appearances than anything else. These features separate one person from another. They "distinguish" between people. For example, say one person has curly hair, blue eyes, and a pearly white smile. These would be notable features, but they also help distinguish this person from others with curly hair or others with blue eyes or others with a pearly white smile. Basically, notable and distinguishing features can be used almost interchangeably with no problems.

Examples of each: "Wow, that photo of an eagle you took there is really impressive!" "Her bright blue eyes are striking in this photo."

    2. Some words change The style of this article is formal and publicist but with a touch of informal communication. The article is full of expressive means and stylistic devices. In the first paragraph, the author refutes the comparison of the return to school and the catastrophe and writes: "To ensure that it is not a total disaster ...". The name of this speech figure is a metaphor. The author points out that a return to school after a long break is not so horrible. Using this dramatic comparison, he shows that he does not think it is very complicated and after that he promises to prove it. The article is oriented to the parents of the students and the author calls them "you". It means that he does not consider himself in this category of parents who believe that the beginning of the school year is horrible or simply does not have children. In the second sentence, the author says that with the advice of this article, parents will be able to succeed: "We have spoken with a series of experts to make sure that you get an A * for your parenting work." The name of this stylistic device is periphrasis. The author uses it to say that parents who read this article can become the best for their children thanks to the useful information it contains. The text also includes a quote attributed more frequently, though not conclusively, to Oscar Wilde: "Talent imitates but genius steals." It is often used by people who, without shame, cheat others, in a quick attempt to justify their appalling behavior. In this context, the author wants to point out that there is nothing wrong if parents borrow something from school, for example, to recreate the classroom at home. This quote may be relevant to the paradox - a stylistic device that is an anomalous juxtaposition of incongruous ideas by a surprising exhibition or an unexpected vision. Oscar Wilde used it frequently to achieve the humorous effect in the text. Maybe, that's why the author uses the quote precisely from this prose, because we can see some jokes in the article. For example: "It's not that we're suggesting that you come home with your pockets full of chalk (it's digital chalk anyway these days)," "... they develop a way of walking like a penguin." There is a funny comparison. In this way, the author wants to relax the readers, encourage them and make them think more positively, I think. Throughout the text we can also see some figures of speech aimed at creating a humorous effect: «... challenges devised by sadists», «Remind your children to do 5,000 different things». It's a hyperbole too. Of course, the author does not mean this literally, exaggerates to produce a fun atmosphere and pay attention to the workload of children and in this particular paragraph. With the same purpose, rhetorical questions are used: "... honestly, what kind of person needs to remember to put on their shoes before leaving home?" Here it is used to make the audience think about the absurdity of such behavior. And, of course, there is essentially no text without a speech figure that is designed to help the reader visualize the characters and bring color and vivacity to the narrative. For example: "Resist the temptation to do your job", "Also ... it saves you a little ordination.", "What if it looks a bit ramshackle?", All these examples are epithets. The author often uses it to make the features more prominent than they really are, to draw attention to these things, to the fact (of the last situation, for example) that it is normal when arts and crafts of children look bad. As I mentioned, the style of this article is formal and publicity with a touch of informal communication. In support of this thought I can point out the use of colloquial words by the author. For example, the Oxford dictionaries and the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English consider the verb "pinch" in the sense of "steal" and the noun "strokes", which means "small accidents in which your car hits something but is not injured" as Words of informal language. Changing a record from formal to informal is one of the most popular methods to ingratiate yourself with readers and give an impression of friendly conversation.

    2. That detail reflects the title. (Je ne suis pas 100% sûr de ce que vous voulez dire ici) The man is situated behind the wings. He has a knife in his hands. The crossed hands give the poster a religious atmosphere. The man frowns, he looks focused on something, his dark look makes him look serious and not psychopathic like the first poster. He is wearing a shirt too, but darker. There is a contrast between the posters. Finally the hairstyles are different. On the first one, he looks like a role model but on the second he looks more mysterious. However, the font is the same "Dexter" on the bottom center. Some elements are emphasized like blood stains, the title and this aspect of a serial killer. For a new release I will choose the first one, made in 2006. Even though I think the 2nd one is more detailled (travaillé ) I love the first one for its striking simplicity. With just the facial expression, we are able to understand that he is a psycopath. This poster is more scheming and fascinating but also disturbing. So, I think, when someone sees the first poster he keeps in mind the man's face. It's better at attracting people because they're curious to know his story. J'espère que ça vous aidera. Il faut encore un peu d'attention aux détails fins (Je n'ai pas le temps de trouver tous les meilleurs mots) mais en gros ç'est assez naturel.
