Hello, Dear Hardworkers,

HELP MY STUDENT, please... You'll see that he has made efforts and has worked a lot... There are "only" 16 mistakes in this text, this time..., which means that you'll have to be very careful... In this extract, he'll tell you a strange story... Please, pay attention to his 16 mistakes and correct them in capital letters. for your help!

Lollove is a tiny ancient village in heart Sardinia. Years of neglect have led many to leave but an ancient curse may yet be
his saviour. Only 13 souls remain in the village that once held 500. But a new generation of Lollovesi is now returning, in
the hope of restoring the village his former glory. For children, the village used to being a true playground, where they used
to pass from one abandoned house to another, each for them a new discovery. Or they did little wooden huts in the countryside, and played with the animals…

hello,here is my work

Lollove is a tiny ancient village in THE HEART OF Sardinia.
Years of neglect have led many to leave but an ancient curse may yet be his saviour.
Only 13 souls remain in the village that once held 500.
But a new generation of LollovesiS is now returning, in the hope of restoring the village his
former glory.
For children, the village useD to BE a true playgroun, where they used to pass from one abandoned house to another, each OF them BEING a new discovery.

Or they WOULD MAKE little wooden huts in the countryside, and PLAY ( they would play)with the animals..
It is said that in Lollove there was a monastery, whith a NUNS' quarter, a convent.
These nuns started having relationships with the local shepherds; they "knew" each otherS.

The legend says the Lollove nuns were 'excommunicated' of church, and while they were leaving, they left a curse on the village, saying:"Lollove, you will be like the water of the sea, you will never grow and never die"///END OF PART ONE///

All legends have a WORD of TRUTH, but, unfortunately, documents about Lollove are SCARCE ;
they don't have documentary proof of the presence of nuns here at Lollove, who then left,
throwing a curse .
If you go and look at the tax records where the number of famillies are reported, you see
that more or less THERE always BEEN 30 or 40 families,and so ACTUALLY the village has
never grown NOR DISAPPEARDED.
"Once upon a time....it was heard from olderS, from grandmothers...'something happened with
these friards or PASTORS and when the nuns were leaving, it's said they turned around and
made the sign of the cross with their left HANDS, saying: Lollove, little Lollove, you will
die always small..."
Lollove used TO BE populated and now, there ARE only around 10 of them left....So, there is

definitely something there..."///END OF PART TWO///

In Italy, there are more than 5,000 little villages which could disappear in the COMING
10 years and with them all their traditions...Small mountain villages are emptying now...
some councils have launched One-euro houses to try and encentivise people to return.
Here, you're not in London, you're in Lollove, where there are 13 people that to-day know
your name and call you by your name to have a coffee. I think the values are very important
especially SO, given our modern world"
The villagers are currently working to relaunch Lollove as a digital detox destination.Why?
Because studies show that after 48 hours without cellphones, our bodies already start to
benefit, making us perceiving new sensations that we aren't allowed to feel in normal
routine.
"What do you think of this legend of the curse?"
"I reckon it's all rubish...We create our own curses...".Maybe we all have the power to lift
our curses too...

(1) a village in heart Sardinia=> in the heart of Sardinia.(« the » parce que « heart » est défini par « of ».)
(2) restoring the village his former glory => to restore something to a preceding state Lien internet
= restoring the village to ...
(3) his former glory : village est neutre => its former glory. -
** Lollovesi= name of the inhabitants of the village (no s in the end - Italian plural.)
(4) the village used to being= used to be= expression qui marque une rupture avec le passé. Autrefois, c’était différent de maintenant.
(5) Or they did little wooden huts=> Or they made little wooden huts ; il s’agit bien ici de faire au sens de « fabriquer ».
(6) a nun’s quarter (voudrait dire qu’il n’y a qu’une seule religieuse dans le couvent !) => with a nuns’ quarter. C’est un « génitif générique ». Lien internet
La possession ne s’applique pas à une seule personne, mais à un groupe et l’article indéfini s’applique à « quarter » =
(7) were ‘excommunicated’ of church : to excommunicate FROM
« church » serait très général. Ici, il s’agit de l’Eglise à laquelle appartenaient ces religieuses. => « the church » Lien internet
(C'était méchant d'enchaîner deux fautes si rapprochées ...)
(8) have a kennel of truth=> a kernel of truth ; ça, c’était un vilain clin d’œil de mon élève … (presque « impardonnable » de ne pas avoir trouvé cette erreur ! ) -
(9) documents about Lollove are scarce= an adjective! = rare. « scarcy » est un pseudo adverbe ! Le véritable adverbe est « scarcely ».
(10) «, throwing a curse » n’existait pas non plus …. Et était une « confusion » de mon élève. Jeter, lancer= to throw, I threw, thrown. Lien internet
. But you « cast a spell(=a curse) » (to cast, I cast, cast) Lien internet

(11) « the village has never grown or has disappeared»=> the village has never grown but nor has it disappeared. (… never… nor…)
(12) heard from older, from grandmothers…=> heard from the elders = les aïeux, les anciens.
(13) in the going 10 years=> in the coming 10 years (coming= à venir)
(14) ha ha ! Pour ce point, j’avais « oublié » de faire la faute ! Sorry!
(15) making us perceiving => to make someone DO something. => making us perceive.
(16) we aren’t allowed to feel; allowed indique une permission. Il s’agissait ici d’une capacité «that we aren’t able to feel ».
Si j'ai bien compté, vous pouviez gagner 36 étoiles ... Moyenne à 18 ; + de 25 = très très bien !

Comme d'habitude, j'attends des volontaires pour le Follow-up Work ... J'en ai déjà .... mais il en manque ... Don't hesitate to step in! Le travail n'est "pas urgent" ... J'ai un week-end démentiel ...

My follow up work for the second part of this text:

All legends have a kernel of truth(8), but unfortunately, documents about Lollove are scarce (9); they don’t have documentary proof of the presence of nuns here at Lollove, who then left, casting a curse.(10) If you go and look at the tax records, where
the number of families are reported, you see that more or less they’ve always had 30 or 40 families, and so effectively the village has never grown but nor has it (11) disappeared.
«Once upon a time… It was heard from the elders (12), from grandmothers… ‘something’ happened with these friars or shepherds and when the nuns were leaving, it’s said they turned around and made the sign of the cross with their left hand, saying: « Lollove, little Lollove, you will die always small… »Lollove used to be (4) populated and now, there’s only around 10 of them left… So, there’s definitely something there…»/// END OF PART TWO ///

Toutes les légendes ont un fond de vérité, mais malheureusement, les documents sur Lollove sont rares; ils n’ont pas de preuve documentaire de la présence de religieuses ici à Lollove, qui sont ensuite parties, jetant la malédiction. Si vous allez et examiner les dossiers fiscaux, où le nombre de familles est déclaré, vous voyez que plus ou moins ils y a toujours eu 30 ou 40 familles, et qu’effectivement, le village n’a jamais grandi ni disparu. «Il était une fois...
On l’a entendu des aînés, des grands-mères ... « quelque chose » s’est passé avec ces frères ou bergers et quand les religieuses partaient, on a dit qu’ils se sont retournés et ont fait le signe de la croix avec leur main gauche, en disant: « Lollove, petite Lollove, tu mourras toujours petite .. » Lollove était peuplée et maintenant, il n’y a plus qu'environ une dizaine d’habitants... Donc, il y a certainement eu quelque chose là-bas... »

I added the third part, as I made "quite an unforgivable mistake" with kennel/kernel as my sight worsens. Thus, I really read "KERNEL…" !
Que cela n'empêche pas d'autres bonnes volontés de s'exercer sur ce passage, ce n'est qu'une proposition de traduction parmi d'autres possibles.




And here is my translation of the third part of this text:

In Italy, there are more than 5,000 little villages which could disappear in/within the coming 10 years (13), and with them all their traditions… Small mountain villages are emptying now… Some councils have launched one-euro houses to try and incentivise people to return. «Here, you’re not in London, you’re in Lollove, where there are 13 people, that today know your name and call you by your name to have a coffee. I think the values are very important, especially given our modern world.» The villagers are currently (14) working hard to relaunch Lollove as a digital detox destination. Why? Because studies show that after 48 hours without cellphones, our bodies already start to benefit, making us perceive (15) new sensations that we aren’t able to (16) feel in normal routine.
«What do you think of this legend of the curse?» «I reckon it’s all rubbish… We create our own curses… » Maybe we all have the power to lift our own curses too…/// END OF THE TEXT///

FIN DE LA DEUXIÈME PARTIE /// En Italie, il y a plus de cinq mille petits villages qui pourraient disparaître dans les dix prochaines années, et avec eux toutes leurs traditions ... Les petits villages de montagne se vident maintenant... Certains conseils ont lancé le prix des maisons à un euro pour essayer d’inciter les gens à revenir. « Ici, vous n’êtes pas à Londres, vous êtes à Lollove, où il y a treize personnes, qui connaissent aujourd’hui votre nom et vous appellent par votre nom pour prendre un café.

Hello!
Here's part I :

Lollove is a tiny ancient village in the heart of Sardinia. Years of neglect have led many to leave but an ancient curse may yet be its saviour. Only 13 souls remain in the village that once held 500. But a new generation of Lollovesi is now returning, in the hope of restoring the village to its former glory. For children, the village used to be a true playground, where they used to pass from one abandoned house to another, each for them a new discovery. Or they made little wooden huts in the countryside, and played with the animals…
It is said that in Lollove there was a monastery, with a nuns’ quarter, a convent. These nuns started having relationships with the local shepherds; they « knew » each other. The legend says the Lollove nuns were ‘excommunicated’ from the church, and while they were leaving, they left a curse on the village, saying: « Lollove, you will be like the water of the sea, you will never grow and never die.» ///END OF PART ONE///

Lollove est un ancien petit village au coeur de la Sardaigne. Des années d'abandon ont conduit beaucoup (d'habitants) à partir mais une vieille malédiction peut cependant le sauver. Il ne reste que 13 âmes dans le village qui un jour en contenait 500. Mais une nouvelle génération de lollovois (*) reviennent au village, dans l'espoir de lui redonner sa gloire d'antan. Le village était un véritable terrain de jeu pour les enfants où ils avaient l'habitude de passer d'une maison abandonnée à une autre, chacune étant une nouvelle découverte pour eux. Ou bien ils construisaient de petites cabanes en bois dans la campagne, et jouaient avec les animaux...
On dit qu'à Lollove, il y avait un monastère avec un quartier de religieuses, un couvent. Ces nonnes commencèrent à avoir des relations avec les pasteurs locaux ; disons qu'ils apprirent à se "connaître"... La légende dit que les soeurs de Lollove furent "excommuniées" de l'église, et alors qu'elles partaient, elles jetèrent un sort sur le village, disant : "Lollove, tu seras comme l'eau de la mer, jamais tu ne grandiras et jamais tu ne mourras"

(*) wild guess
