Rack your brains and help!/62
Message de here4u posté le 13-01-2020 à 22:30:20 (S | E | F)
Hello, Dear helpers…

PLEASE, HELP MY STUDENT... He needs you!
My student has chosen to read and write a lot about languages because he wishes he had learnt more of them. He has tried to explain to us what he's understood in his readings, - and he did understand quite well – though he left 16 mistakes in this passage. I’m sure you’ll be able to find them all and help him correct them, as a reward for his effort!
This text is a as ever, and the correction will be online on Tuesday, 28 January 2020.

This text contains 16 mistakes to be corrected (in capital letters, please!)

The number of teenagers learning foreign languages in the UK secondary schools has dropped by 45% since the turn of the millennium. Why learning a foreign language when English is spoken by hundreds of million people worldwide? some people wandered. Some native English speakers explain how to make the effort to learn a second language is important - and how it changed their lives.
-'It gave me confidence to interview foreigners' A young man said that in his job, he was "embarrassed not to know the language" and learning German has given him "so much confidence"."Even professionally, I didn't interview footballers for three years because I didn't have the confidence in my language but now I can go up to any player. It's totally changed my way of living. » ///END OF PART ONE.///
-'I gave my children the gift of a second language' The 44-year-old puts his successful career down to his language skills and the cultural awareness it brings."Speaking a language helps breaking the ice," he said. "Even if it's not perfect, it's a good introduction and brings people on-side when you're negotiating.
"My own two children are of course bilingual in French and English."Now they have a lot of international friends and they're discovering the world through two sets of eyes. The gift of a second language is the better thing I can give them."
Being introduced to languages at a young age is something that teachers believe strongly.
Among the benefits of learning a second language is the potential to "boost brain power", it was said.///END OF PART 2 ///

For studying interpreting and translation, the woman has worked as in-house translator and assistant language teacher (for English) in Japan.
"I now work as a freelance medical and marketing translator," she said. "Most of my work - about 80% - is in German. »

Volunteers may, if they fancy it, tell us what, in their opinion, is the main idea of the text and comment on it in 120 words at most!

Of course, THE FORCE is with YOU!

READY TO BE CORRECTED

learning a foreign language for English-speakers whose language is international is not useless but beneficial for them ; let's look at a few examples :
when they are abroad and want to apply for a job ; they must speak fluently, the National language
and Enen if they are simple tourists, we can asses that they will feel better consideration and empathy from the native people ,To be acurate,it is going to ease
contacts ,exchanges, ideas ;In fact they are going broad their minds ,
finally, learning a foreing language is an excellent method in order to maintain memory and brain in a good health (102 mots)

READY TO BE CORRECTED

Too bad, I was expecting your "UK" to correct it into "the UK" So far, I've only found about 10 mistakes : that's a tough one! No matter how often I read it, I can no longer find mistakes. Sorry!
I) Help my student:

The number of teenagers learning foreign languages in the UK secondary schools has dropped by 45% since the turn of the millennium. Why LEARN a foreign language when English is spoken by hundreds of million people worldwide? some people WONDER. Some native English speakers explain how MAKING the effort to learn a second language is important - and how it changed their lives.
-'It gave me confidence to interview foreigners': A young man said that in his job, he was "embarrassed not to know the language" and learning German HAD given him "so much confidence"."Even professionally, I didn't interview footballers for three years because I didn't have the confidence in my language but now I can go up to any player. It's totally changed my way of living. » ///END OF PART ONE.///
-'I gave my children the gift of a second language': The 44-year-old puts his successful career down to his language skills and the cultural awareness it brings."Speaking a language helps BREAK the ice," he said. "Even if it's not perfect, it's a good introduction and brings people on-side when you're negotiating.
"My own two children are of course bilingual in French and English."Now they have a lot of international friends and they're discovering the world through two sets of eyes. The gift of a second language is the BEST thing I can give them."
Being introduced to languages at a young age is something that teachers believe strongly IN.
Among the benefits of learning a second language is the potential to "boost brain power", it HAS BEEN said.///END OF PART 2 ///
Studies have suggested that learning a second language can SLOW DOWN brain AGING, and can lead to higher mental function in the brain. We have to think about what people need for their future."
"Learning two foreign languages also made wonders for my English. It gave me a new perspective about my own language and also gave me extra practice in identifying parts of speech, and later on, analysing literature."
For studying interpreting and translation, the woman has worked as AN in-house translator and AN assistant language teacher (for English) in Japan.
"I now work as a freelance medical and marketing translator," she said. "Most of my work - about 80% - is in German. »
"I love my job and I'll always be thankful TO my language teachers at school who taught me how to learn."/// END of the TEXT///

II) COMMENT :
Learning other languages may be essential for your work (if you deal with people or texts written in another language), but even if you don't seem to need it on a regular basis, it helps you analyse the words, make connections between your own words in your native language and the language you're learning, so it helps you memorize. It definitely makes your brain work.
In a nutshell, "I don't want to lose it, so I use it! (I'm talking about my brains of course)" (89 w)


Je prendrai la 2e partie du texte pour le follow-up work.
