Hello, dear Workers!

Voici un nouvel exercice d'expression ... Espérons que vous serez nombreux à vous y essayer ...

Je vous en prie ... Osez participer ! N'ayez pas peur de vous tromper, de faire des fautes, ou d'écrire "hors sujet". Les fautes nous sont utiles, puisqu'elles permettent de réfléchir, de faire des corrections et de donner des explications ...
Paradoxalement, faire une faute est la meilleure chose qui puisse NOUS arriver, à vous, comme à moi ! Merci à ceux qui en font !
N'ayez pas de scrupules, vous ne serez pas jugés, mais simplement guidés et aidés ...
C'est en pratiquant, encore et souvent, que les progrès viendront ! N'hésitez donc pas à intervenir, pour la correction des expressions de vos co-workers, comme pour l'écriture de votre propre expression si vous le désirez ... (Vous pouvez aussi - et certains ne s'en privent presque pas ...) écrire sur le "mode de la conversation", comme vous "parleriez" !)

Voici le rappel des modalités de la première partie de l'exercice :
1. Je vous demande une EXPRESSION sur le sujet proposé (un sujet unique par exercice) à m’envoyer en mp dès que possible … (=> 130 - 150 mots au maximum.)

2. Le plus tôt possible, une première expression est publiée sur le Forum, et CHACUN est libre de « corriger » UNE FOIS ( en collant le texte et indiquant les erreurs EN BLEU, et en soulignant ce qui vous semble maladroit et que vous voudriez changer, sans donner la « correction » (forme correcte), comme il se doit.) Un seul devoir à la fois sera publié pour corriger…

Les modalités complètes sont accessibles sur le lien suivant :
Lien internet



( Je vous les rappellerai au fur et à mesure de la progression du travail )
Cet exercice sera ... ce que vous en ferez, ou Correction en ligne le mardi 26 juillet 2022.

Voici le nouveau sujet !

"Describe your dream holiday week!" (130 - 150 mots au maximum.)

May THE FORCE be with You (with all of you! ) Everybody's welcome! Do not hesitate to write!

Hello, dear workers!

Here is EXPRESSION N°1: Please, help us, indicating possible mistakes in blue and underlining what you think is clumsy.

During my dream vacation week, to begin with, I would sleep in until 11:00 AM every single morning! Preferentially, I would be accommodated within a luxurious abode a few steps away from the Mediterranean Sea so that I could sunbathe on the seaside most of the afternoons. In the evenings, I would taste local food from five-star expensive restaurants on a daily basis and would swim with marine animals such as blue sharks or whales, of course without hurting them, before diving and marveling at the ocean floors and its treasures. Inasmuch as I am a night owl, I would party all nights long until 3:00 PM, what would give me the opportunity to meet new people. Rest of the time, I think I would just unwind by doing hiking and enjoying the landscapes, visiting places like museums or aquariums, etc.

EXPRESSION N°3: please, help us, indicating possible mistakes in blue and underlining what you think is clumsy.

No matter where I go, in my dream holiday week, there would be no chores, no commitments, no administrative tasks, no routine. This alone would make an incredible change!
Anywhere I go, I would have enough time to do what I really like: reading, learning, listening to music, playing ping-pong, relaxing, thinking...
I'd choose a place that I hold dear, in a not too crowded seside resort. I would walk in beautiful gardens that others than me maintain by the sweat of their brows(*)... I would take photos to immortalise the moment.
I'd also have all the time I need to do all of Here4U's exercises...
Yet, one week is awfully short for a holiday and I would spend the rest of the year wishing I could relive this week one more time!

Fish vs. Fishes
The most common plural form of fish is indeed fish. However, under certain circumstances, you can use fishes as the plural form of fish. If you, for example, see two trout swimming together, you could say that you’re looking at fish. However, if the two trout were joined by a salmon, you could describe them as fish or fishes. Fish can refer to multiple fish, especially when they are all the same species of fish. Fishes, however, usually refers to multiple species of fish, especially in scientific contexts.

(1) Tu as colorié en vert "went" : c'est la première fois que je vois "No matter where I went" dans ce contexte d'un rêve futur hypothétique (et non passé). Aurais-tu un lien vers un cours grammatical où il y a des exemples avec "no matter" ? (Je n'ai vu que des exemples avec "if")

(2) Est-ce bien la correction que tu attendais ?

(3) Je pensais que "a not too crowded ..." se disait et s'écrivait Qu'est-ce qui ne va pas ?

Hello everyone!

FOLLOW-UP WORK

EXPRESSION N°1

To begin with, during my dream vacation week, I would sleep in until 11:00 AM every single morning! I would preferably be accommodated in a luxurious house/ villa a few steps away from the Mediterranean Sea so that I could sunbathe by the ocean most of the afternoons. In the evenings, I would taste local food from expensive five-star restaurants on a daily basis and would swim with marine animals such as blue sharks or whales, of course without hurting them, ha ha ! (What about them hurting YOU ? I would only swim with innocuous sharks such as whale sharks or thresher sharks ) before diving and marveling at the ocean floors and their treasures. Inasmuch as I am a night owl, I would party all nights long until 3:00 PM, which would give me the opportunity to meet new people. The rest of the time, I think I would just unwind by doing hiking and enjoying the landscapes, visiting places like museums or aquariums, etc.

EXPRESSION N°2

My dream holiday week would be a week without constraint, hassle and any meetings. I would like to forget administrative statements and all forms to fill in. During this week, I would first close the Internet then put aside my smartphone and my tablet, which make me crazy. I would have no schedule to keep .
I wouldn't watch TV and not listen to the radio.I would like to have a peaceful and quiet week without any noise.
My only interests would be to swim under a waterfall located between the rocks of a rainforest and marvel at its tropical flowers and colorful birds.
I would buy some local fruits, vegetables and fish(es); I would cook them in banana leaves, directly set on hot stones... I wouldn't need electricity or gas. I would get up and go to bed at the same hour as the sun.
After one week, I would be happy to come back into the city, it would have been a nice 8-day trip .

Why can't I write "underneath the waterfalls?"

EXPRESSION N°3

No matter where I went for my dream holiday week, there would be no chores, no commitments, no administrative tasks, no routine. This alone would make an incredible change!
Wherever I went, I would have enough time to do what I really like: reading, learning, listening to music, playing ping-pong, winding down, thinking...
I'd choose a place that I hold dear, in an uncrowded seaside resort (attempt: ...in a seaside resort not much swarmed by tourists). I would walk through beautiful gardens that other people would have taken care of(one word or 2? what are you talking about? ) by the sweat of their brows... I would take pictures to capture the moment.
I'd also have all the time I need to do all of Here4U's exercises...
Yet, one week is awfully short for a holiday and I would spend the rest of the year wishing I could relive this week one more time!

Thanks for these corrections!!

Hello dears!

Thanks for the reminder... My poor brain is numb with the heat...

EXPRESSION N°1: Maxwell: Yes, "abode" rings too formal to my (casual ) ears. (House/ villa : OK) Pour la même raison, j'utiliserais "as"... Correction validée. // vaiana: OK. Correction validée !

EXPRESSION N°2: Maxwell: TBonne correction validée. (préférer "no meetings".) // vaiana : Bon ! Alors, tu m'a encore entraînée dans des recherches sans fin ! J'ai regardé des vidéos, lu des articles sur le symbolisme de la chute d'eau etc.
J'ai trouvé "below a waterfall"/ under a waterfall ... mais je trouve "underneath" "trop!"... [mais c'est moi !] Correction validée.

EXPRESSION N°3: Maxwell: Ne pas oublier que dans les leçons, les liens ou les exemples, on te donne certains contextes, mais que le cerveau humain a une capacité presque infinie à créer ses propres contextes qui changent les obligations grammaticales des expressions employées ! (Je parle du cerveau humain "normal", non anesthésié par la chaleur, le froid, la fatigue, la maladie, ou tout excitant quel qu'il soit ! N'oubliez jamais la prépondérance du CONTEXTE.
NON ! "in a not too crowded seaside resort." ne se dit pas (ou ne devrait pas se dire !)
Grammaticalement, d'abord : on ne dit pas "a too big book/ a too crowded resort/ a not too crowded resort", mais "too big a book/ too crowded a resort/ not too crowded a resort" .... mais franchement, lorsque j'ai dit ça à mes amis anglophones la semaine dernière, ils étaient perplexes ... => changer la contruction ... ne parler ni comme un dictionnaire, ni comme un livre de grammaire trop rigoureux !

et OUI! "whenever" est l'expression à employer ! Correction validée. et
