Rack your brains and help! /64
Message de here4u posté le 12-02-2020 à 21:35:02 (S | E | F)
Hello, Dear Friends,

Voici la nouvelle édition du travail de "My Poor Student", who's trying so hard... Avec l'actualité du moment, il a bien du mal à trouver des sujets "originaux" mais pas trop catastrophiques, sinon "amusants" ... Aujourd'hui, il a eu envie de donner une toute petite lueur d'espoir quand tout semble bien difficile ...

Cet exercice est un et sa correction sera en ligne le mercredi 26 février.

PLEASE, HELP MY STUDENT... He has left 20 mistakes in this text...(he has excuses, the text is quite long...)
(The 20 mistakes must be corrected IN CAPITAL LETTERS, please! )

Prema and her husband had worked in a brick kiln, winning just enough to scrape a living together for their young family. But they had hoped for more. Her husband took off a loan to start his own brick kiln, but the plans failed to take up. In a moment of desperation last year, he killed himself.
The pressure fell solely on Prema not only to earn enough to feed, clothe and house herself and her three children, but also to pay back the money they owned for the failed business venture. And for a while she managed, taking her two youngest to work with her."When I go to work I get 200 rupees ($2.80) per day, which is enough to run our family," But she became ill, which meant she couldn't earn as much. She was sick for three months - by the end of when the bills had mounted, and the cupboards had run naked. "My seven years old son started crying due to anger." Prema had no property, jewellery, valuables or kitchen ustensils that could be exchanged for cash. "I didn't even have a 10 rupee note [$0.14; £0.11] with me" Then she realised she did have anything she could sell after all. ///END of PART 1 /// "I remembered a shop which used to buy hair," Prema says, thinking immediately of her own hair. India is one of the world top exporters of human hair, which is sold around the globe to make extensions. "I went there and sold my entire head of hair at 150 rupees ($2; £1.50) The respite was only temporary: Prema knew she was out of options, and her thoughts began to turn towards more drastic measures. She decided to find a way of taking her own life. She was saved by her sister, who happened to come by on time to stop her. And then, just few days later, the help she so desesperately needed appeared out of the blue.
Bala Murugan heard about Prema's situation. It immediately stroke a nerve: her struggle reminded him of his family's darkest hour: at the age of 10, his family ran out of food. In a state of utter despair, Bala's mother decided to kill herself and her children. She changed her mind at the last moment: the family rushed their mother to a doctor, and she was saved. ///END of PART 2 /// Bala now lives a life a world around from the situation he grew up. After years of struggle, he worked his way out of poverty and now owns a computer graphics centre. He gave Prema some money to buy food, then wrote about the family on social media. "Within a day I got 120,000 rupees ($1,670)." At Prema's request, the fundraising was stopped. "She said she would get back to her work and pay the rest," Prema is slowly getting back on her feet, but, sadly, her financial situation is far from unique. In spite of India's economic growth, millions like her struggle to put food on the table. Prema has another obstacle in her way: she cannot read nor write, like tens of millions of other Indians. As a result, she is unaware of government schemes which provide help to people like her. But thanks to her community and to Bala, she is able to see a way out of the cycle of poverty which has kept her trapped. "Now I realise suicide was the wrong decision," she says. "I am confident about paying back the rest of the loan."/// END of the TEXT ///.


Thanks a lot for your help ... Of course, THE FORCE IS WITH you!
