Hello, Dear Friends!

Correction online on Friday, December 29th, late ...

II) Let’s make words… and sentences! Nouveauté !

For each group of letters:
- make as many words (of more than 4 letters) as you can. ( I DON’T WANT FOUR-LETTER WORDS! Do not mix the letters of the different groups!)
- Then, take the longest word of each set and use it in a sentence of your own, so that its meaning is very clear!

1. EAGNRST 7
2. AIOYDHLLS 9
3. EOUDFLNRW 9
4. OEUYWNDRFLL 11


You may total up your points (1 for each letter used in words of more than 4 letters + 5 for each sentence: ie: TABLES= 6 letters = 6 points). Work well and RACK your BRAINS! Good luck! (Here is THE FORCE!)

Hello Dears!

ATTENTION !
Dans "Find the Words", il ne s'agit pas de trouver 4 mots en tout, mais de trouver AUTANT DE MOTS QUE POSSIBLE de plus de 4 lettres (avec tout, ou partie) des lettres données. (Récap: J'attends donc 4 phrases + autant de mots que possible de + de 4 lettres ! Is that clear? )

Pour le "Help my Student", il m'a été demandé de (re) faire une compétition du "Jumper" le plus "original / drôle / laid / beau / ridicule" comme vous l'aviez fait pour "the best tea-cosy" ... Allez ! C'est parti ! J'attends vos "best of"...

HELLO ! Great Choice!

Je crois que Lucile et Laurent vont nous maudire ... et que nous risquons de faire bugger le Forum !

Disons que chacun choisit deux ou trois catégories, au plus, et ensuite UN SEUL PULL par catégorie !
C'est vrai qu'il y en a de terribles ....

Hello !
Please...
Juste parce que je n'aime pas "vérifier" (et passer trop de temps à ce qui n'est pas de l'anglais ... )pourriez-vous s'il vous plaît, me faciliter la tâche ... et ...
Classer vos mots par nombres de lettres (Ex : 5 lettres = 4X5 :XXXXX/ XXXXX/ XXXXX/ XXXXX/ ; 6 lettres = 1X6 : XXXXXX etc. 7 lettres = 1X 7 = 33 points) Ce serait very helpful to me !

Bonjour ma chère Here4u,
Ne t'inquiète pas, je l'ai prévu bien sûr, tu as déjà les mots qui sont classés par ordre alphabétique, et dans l'ordre croissant... pour ne pas prendre trop de place sur ce forum et te faire oublier de passer à la page suivante... ! Après je reprendrai le tout et te ferai les calculs que tu pourras vérifier aisément et en un rien de temps : personnellement, je suis organisée...
Bonne soirée !

Hello !

Je "prends" vos exercices pour les contrôler lorsque vous me mettez "Ready for Correction". Alors, s'il vous plaît, n'en rajoutez plus après ... Ce serait bien aussi (juste pour que vous puissiez mieux les retenir ...) de me mettre la traduction des mots trouvés ! Pour le moment, sans la recherche de mots, nous avons un vainqueur incontestable ... Qui dit mieux?

Je vous rappelle aussi que vous êtes (ou devriez être ! ) engagés dans un vote sur : the nicest jumper - the ugliest one - the most ridiculous one - the cutest one - the most terrible one. (That is five pictures at most!

MAKE THE world BETTER with a sweater.
Christmas JUMPER DAY HAS become a tradition for BRITISH people doing something ODD – LIKE WEARING a Christmas KITSCH jumper – BUT ALSO DOING some
MORE IMPORTANT charity WORK, LIKE DONATIONS, WHICH PEOPLE DO WANT to make LIFE better for CHILDREN LIVING in poverty in THE UK and ALL around the WORLD.
In facts THEY WANT “ to make the world better with a sweater “ ON FRIDAY 15TH
December.
The PRINCIPLE is simple: wearing a silly XMAS jumper and DONATING 2 POUNDS to
Charity, even the ROYAL FAMILY get INVOLVED, IN A VERY ORIGINAL WAY, TO USE
something KNITTED by your GRANNY for XMAS, WHICH you FEEL obliged to WEAR in her presence. In THESE LAST years THE shops were BEING FILLED with XMAS JUMPERS SHOWING SNOWMEN, SANTAS, reindeer and CHRISTMAS puddings.
You wouldn’t need to buy a jumper ESPECIALLY for this day, SINCE many people CUSTOMIZE THEIR OWN ONES with TINSEL and other CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.
This CHARITY WORK, FOCUSED ON Christmas Jumper Day, HAS BEEN RAISING more THAN 4 MILLION POUNDS a YEAR since 2012, ASSIGNING THE COLLECTED MONEY
TO PROJECTS AIMED AT BENEFITING POOR CHILDREN.

Hello Everybody !


To my mind, these couple of Jumper Day
are the most ridiculous... poor little birds ... !


This red one with a three dimensional
raindeer is the ugliest, for sure !


 


The following red jumper with its white
and green balls is ponderous. I don't like it !


 


… Even if I saw another one, the
worst of all, but I coudn't erase the girl's face to publish it in
this site : this girl was wearing on a Jumper Day with a three
dimensional great turkey on her belly... !!! I tried to erase her
face, to publish the picture, but I failed.


 


The more dangerous to be worn is
undoubtedly this one, so it could cause lots of accidents on the
road... as it is cloyed (double meaning) and not really
convenient... !


 


The cutest one is the light blue one
with its couple of rabbits. Nice, but for children !


 


The ludicrous is this one : I find it
stodgy with its two crazy yellow faces !


 


The most stylish is this black jumper
with its cats ! I really like it, but it is not my favorite... !


 


Here is my favorite and humourous, this
red jumper where Santa is falling down ! I do love it !


 


 


No my dear Here 4u, I don't like the
jumper with your cat « Ho ho no » it is not really my cup
of tea, even if I DO love cats, you know... , it's really too ugly !
Thank you for your present... I'll put it on for the next Jumper Day
(only if you come to my home next summer ! ) … just to make
you happy and just for one day, after, this friendly bet, I' ll do,
then my cats will sleep on it!


 


 


Enjoy yourselves, some of them are as
they say something awful !


 


Thank you so much for speaking about
this American and British tradition, and that you allow to express
ourselves about this topic.


 


Merci beaucoup de nous avoir parlé de
cette tradition américaine et anglaise, et de nous permettre de nous
exprimer à ce sujet.


See you soon.

Hello, Dear Friends,

very much to all the hardworkers and players who've spend a lot of time with me during these two weeks... for your tremendous work. I was glad to notice that, although the work was long and difficult, you've really given me your best, as usual.
Here are my suggestions...

Christmas Jumper Day is becoming a tradition for British people to do something silly – wear a kitschy (1) Christmas jumper — to do some serious good, for Save the Children, a charity (2). This charity wants people to donate, to make life better for children in poverty in the UK and around the world. In fact it wants to “make the world better with a sweater” on 15 December!
The principle is simple: wear a silly Xmas jumper and donate £2 (3) to a charity. Even the Royal Family gets involved. Originally, a “Christmas jumper” used to be something made by your Granny for Xmas that you felt obliged to wear in front of her. In recent years, the shops have filled with Xmas-themed jumpers featuring snowmen, Santas, reindeer and Christmas puddings. You don’t have to buy a jumper especially for the day, many people customise their own with tinsel (4) and other Christmas decorations.
Since 2012, Save the Children has raised more than £4 million a year through Christmas Jumper Day. The charity uses the money raised for projects that benefit children.

(1) kitschy= "kitsch", "de style volontairement surchargé, démodé, ou de mauvais goût".
(2) a charity = une association caritative, une œuvre de bienfaisance
(3) £2 = vous semblez avoir oublié, comme mon élève, que la Grande Bretagne n'est jamais entrée dans la "zone euro" ... et a, de plus, voté pour le Brexit!
(4) traîtreusement, ce nom ne prend pas la marque du pluriel.

Je suis certaine que cette liste est loin d'être exhaustive ... et je crois bien avoir aperçu des mots que je n'avais pas donnés dans certaines listes ... Je n'ai pas eu, non plus, le courage de compter les points ... (Les corrections me semblaient prioritaires ...! ) Merci encore de votre courage et de votre persévérance ...
L'exercice suivant est en ligne et sera moins "automatique", plus créatif ... Une récompense ... vous l'avez bien méritée !
