This is the scene where Phileas Fogg employs Passepartout

Readers would need an introductory activity to spot the verbs (in the Past Historic) starting from 'frappa' and work out a meaning from the context 'frappa à la porte'

The long speech by Passepartout is the focus for the reading activity: 'How many jobs does he say he has had ? Which ones can you work out?'
