As a mark of respect to his hard work, the village men also attend his ‘last lesson’. They are sad as they did not learn their mother tongue, French in their childhood.

He develops an instant liking for the teacher, M. Hamel and respects him for his sincerity and hard work.

He feels sad at departing from him and is ashamed for not being able to recite the lesson of participles.
