Hello Dear friends!

Sorry I was persuaded that I had posted the following exercise at the beginning of the weekend... I hope you won't have missed it!
Take care, this one, like the preceding one, is quite difficult. My Student is really quite discouraging... He hardly improves at all and will need your help once again. No punctuation at all, this time... You could believe he makes no effort.

The second exercise is another reordering... perhaps a little less difficult than the preceding one, because it's more attached to grammar... (and you like grammar so much, don't you? ) It's another and it will be corrected online on Monday, 12 February. I give you the FORCE.

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you! In the following text, there are many, many mistakes to correct and the punctuation to add...

Candlemas in 2th february celebrate candels they are blessées and uzed for rest of year Its a habitude to eating « crêpes » (or pan cake) in that day A sure symbolisme is associated with the preparation of crêpes with the rounded shape and gold colour pan cakes are reminder of solar disk and of return of spring after dark and cold of Winter A tradition is to flipp crêpes in air with right and whereas helding a gold coin or somes others coin on left end in order to having the prosperity all the year One has to ensure than pan cakes landing proprelly in pan It is also told that first crêpe should be keeped into ensure plentifull harvest more late in year Pan cake will supposy not got moldy and keep of misery and deprivation far
in 2th february anglo saxon celebrate Groundhog Day it deriving from Deusch superstition than if groundhog emerging from its furrow in this day see a shadow du clear weether she will retrit to its den and winter persists during six more weeks and if he does not du to cloudliness Spring season will arrive early Phil more famous groundhog at the world and predict how winter will last long Phil is supposy giftd of season intuition during this three-days celebration groundhog bingo workhops art show a scavanger hunt and a full variety of entertainments for kids (story time craft and a « Kid Korner with groundhog day » related activities) are organised.

Candlemas ? or Groundhog Day? Make your choice...

MY CORRECTION
Candlemas is celebrated on February 2nd. Candles are blessed and then used for the rest of the year. It's an habit to eat " crêpes " or pancakes that day . A authentic symbol is in association with the preparation of pancakes .Their rounded shapes and their golden colours represent a symbolic reminder of solar disk and the return of spring after the dark and cold days of winter .....
A tradition is to flip the pancake in the air with the right hand , while holding a gold coin or any other coin on the left hand, in order to have prosperity the whole year . It's important to be sure that pancakes properly land in the pan. It is also said that the first pancake will be kept in to ensure plentiful harvest more later in the year. Pancakes are supposedly not get mouldy and keep misery and deprivation far away....

On february 2nd Anglo- Saxons celebrate Groundhog Day ,which derives from a German supertition .If the groundhog coming out from its burrow this day sees a shadow on a clear weather she will go back into its burrow and winter will persit for six more weeks ,on the contrary if it doesn't see a shadow due to cloudless , then Spring season will arrive early...

Phill is the most famous groundhog in the world and it can predict how long winter will last. Phill is supposedly gifted of season intuition for these three days celebration. Groundhog bingo ,workshop art ,performing art , scavenger hunt , kid corner with story time and craft for kids and many another varieties of entertainment related with Groundhog Day are organised during the day of celebration.....

The life of groundhog isn't so bad ......is it !

Hello, Dear Friends and co-workers!

Certains m’ont maudite (en silence, mais quand même !), beaucoup m’ont dit « que la barre était très haute » (Normal, c'est un ) ; Encore une fois, en vous corrigeant, j'ai été très agréablement surprise par tant de trouvailles et par le niveau élevé de l’ensemble des travaux. Bravo à tous. Comme le disent nos amis anglo saxons : ‘I’m very much impressed ! » Je vous assure de toutes mes félicitations … et pardon si je vous fais faire trop d’efforts …

I) Please, help my student! He really needs you! In the following text, there are many, many mistakes to correct...

Candlemas, on 2 February celebrates candles: they are blessed (1) and used for the rest of the year. It’s a habit to eat « crêpes » (2) (or pancakes) on that day. A certain symbolism is associated with the preparation of the crêpes : with their round shape and golden color, the pancakes are reminders of the solar disc and of the return of (3) spring after the dark and cold of (3) winter. A tradition is to flip the crêpes in the air with the right hand while holding a gold coin or some other coin in the left hand, in order to have prosperity throughout the year. One has to ensure that the pancake lands properly back in the pan. It is also said that the first crêpe made should be kept to ensure a plentiful harvest later in the year. The « pancake » will supposedly not get moldy (4) and will keep misery and deprivation far away.
On 2 February, Anglo Saxons celebrate Groundhog Day : it derives from the Dutch(5) superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter (3) will persist for six more weeks, and if he does not, due to cloudiness, (3) spring season will arrive early. Phil is the most famous groundhog in the world and predicts how long winter will last (6). Phil is supposedly gifted with seasonal intuition. During this three-day celebration (7), Groundhog Bingo, workshops, art shows, a scavenger hunt and a full variety of entertainments for kids (story time, crafts and a Kids Corner with Groundhog Day related activities) are organised.
ATTENTION ! Important !
Je recherche trois volontaires (je dis bien 3, pas plus, pas moins ! « First come-first served ») pour traduire sur ce Forum :
1) le paragraphe sur « Candlemas »- 2) celui sur « Groundhog Day » et le 3e pour traduire les trois phrases remises dans l’ordre, en faisant très attention aux temps.) Merci d’avance.

(1) To be blessed= FAUX AMI ! = être béni ; blessé = injured/ wounded.
(2) L’un d’entre vous faisait remarquer qu’il n’avait jamais vu un mot français employé en anglais avec son accent … mais voilà, notre ami n’a pas tout vu ! Hi hi ! J’ai immédiatement pensé à « blasé/ café (le lieu, pas la boisson !)/ fiancé/ fiancée/ ménage à trois (excusez le rapprochement … qui n’est pas « done on purpose »… Après quelques recherches, il y a aussi tout le vocabulaire du « ballet » (la danse) : sauté, plié, pas chassé, pas de bourrée, etc.
(3) Attention ! Les jours de la semaine et les mois de l’année prennent une majuscules, mais en général pas les saisons … Ce n’est pas tout à fait si simple (voir lien) et j’ai bien envie de faire une leçon/ test à ce sujet.
Lien internet


(4) La légende veut que la première crêpe de chaque année soit gardée sur le dessus d’une armoire. Elle devrait y sécher en assurant que le foyer aura de l’argent et de la nourriture toute l’année, avec une moisson florissante.
(5) « Dutch » = hollandais, à ne pas confondre avec « German », allemand.
(6) « Phil predicts how long winter will last. » est une interrogative indirecte, donc pas une question. Attention à l’ordre des mots (mots interrogatif + sujet+ verbe) et à l’absence de point d’interrogation.
(7) « this three-day celebration » = cette fête de trois jours = qui dure trois jours ; ici, « three-day » est en position d’adjectif, et reste donc invariable ; vous pouviez aussi mettre « this three days’ celebration » en utilisant le génitif de durée, ou vous pouviez choisir la facilité … en ajoutant « of » : « these three days of celebration ».

II) REMETTEZ LES ELEMENTS DANS L'ORDRE : Vous avez eu quelques difficultés avec ces mots à remettre dans l’ordre

1. WHO/ ANOTHER/ GOT/ WAS/ JUST/ A/ HAD/ MAN/ VICTIM/ MARRIED/ YOUNG/
Another victim was a young man who had just got married.
Ou (A young man who had just got married was another victim.)

2. WAS/ DECADES/ WEEK/ WORST/ WEST/ BY/ LAST/ GERMANY/ ACCIDENT/ COAL MINING/ ITS/ HIT/ IN
Last week, West Germany was hit by its worst coal mining incident in decades.

3. HARDLY/ WHEN/ DOWN/ TO/ WE/ THE/ THE/ WERE /HAD/ BEGUN/ APPRECIATE/ CUT/ TREES/ VIEW/
Hardly had we begun to appreciate the view when the trees were cut down.
(C’était la phrase la plus logique et qui respectait les temps. « Hardly » en début de phrase implique une inversion du sujet, souvent exprimée au past perfect. (L’antériorité est exprimée par « had begun » ; vous ne pouvez pas confondre avec le prétérit « began »)
Bien contente que vous ayez été satisfaits de ce devoir, même s’il vous a donné un peu de fil à retordre …
BIEN LIRE MON APPEL A VOLONTAIRES, MERCI

Hello Here4u,
Here is my translation of the part 1 :
ready for correction

Candlemas, on 2 February celebrates candles: they are blessed (1) and used for the rest of the year. It’s a habit to eat « crêpes » (2) (or pancakes) on that day. A certain symbolism is associated with the preparation of the crêpes : with their round shape and golden color, the pancakes are reminders of the solar disc and of the return of (3) spring after the dark and cold of (3) winter. A tradition is to flip the crêpes in the air with the right hand while holding a gold coin or some other coin in the left hand, in order to have prosperity throughout the year. One has to ensure that the pancake lands properly back in the pan. It is also said that the first crêpe made should be kept to ensure a plentiful harvest later in the year. The « pancake » will supposedly not get moldy (4) and will keep misery and deprivation far away.

Le 2 février, la Chandeleur, c’est la fête des cierges : ils sont bénis et servent pour l’année en cours. C’est une habitude de manger des crêpes ce jour-là. Une symbolique particulière est associée à la préparation des crêpes : avec leur forme arrondie et leur couleur dorée, les crêpes évoquent le soleil et le retour du printemps après les jours bas et le froid de l’hiver. Une tradition consiste à faire sauter les crêpes en l’air de la main droite, tout en tenant dans sa main gauche, une pièce de monnaie en or ou autre métal, dans le but de garantir la prospérité tout au long de l’année. On doit s’efforcer de rattraper correctement la crêpe dans la poêle. On dit aussi que la première crêpe permettrait d’assurer une moisson florissante plus tard dans l’année. La crêpe, soi-disant, ne moisira pas et repoussera misère et privation.

Have a nice week

Hello
Je suis volontaire pour les phrases remises dans l'ordre

1. Another victim was a young man who had just got married.
Une autre victime était un jeune homme qui venait juste de se marier.

2. Last week, West Germany was hit by its worst coal mining incident in decades.
La semaine dernière, l'Allemagne de l'Ouest fut touchée par le pire incident minier qu'elle ait connu depuis des décennies.

3. Hardly had we begun to appreciate the view when the trees were cut down.
A peine avions-nous commencé à profiter de la vue que les arbres furent abattus.

J'espère qu'il n'y a pas trop de fautes

Hello !

Magie8 n'a pas réussi à poster la traduction pour laquelle elle s'est portée volontaire. Elle me l'a envoyée : la voici:

Le 2 février les Anglo-Saxons fêtent le Jour de la Marmotte cela vient d'une superstition Hollandaise qui dit que, quand une marmotte en sortant de son terrier ce jour-là, voit une ombre par temps clair , elle reculeRA(rentrera) dans sa tanière et l hiver persistera pendant 6 semaines supplémentaires, mais si c'est sans nuage,(Là, c'est le contraire ... c'est "parce qu'il y a des nuages ...") le printemps arrivera tôt.
Phil la plus célèbre marmotte du monde prédit combien de temps l hiver durera . Phil est censée être douée d intuition concernant les saisons. Durant ces 3 jours de célébration (fête)= cette fête qui dure 3 jours , un bingo de la marmotte , des ateliers, des expositions d'Art , une chasse au trésor et une pleine variété d'animations pour enfants(contes de fée, loisirs créatifs et coin-enfants avec des activités liées au Jour de la Marmotte ) sont organisés. Magie8 à bientôt.

Bravo, Magie! C'est parfait ! un grand .
