Exercice 22/diversify again
Message de here4u posté le 17-11-2014 à 19:42:57 (S | E | F)
Hello !
Here's work (or amusement) for you ! for being so faithful and speaking about your preferences too ... I'll respect what you ask for ... The only problem is that some of you are really eager to do more and more translations ...while others don't mind a little 'game or two' !
I've tried to satisfy everyone, giving longer sentences to translate and giving another kind of game ... for those who want to rack their brains !

EXERCICE 22 : Let's diversify again !
1) Translate from French into English :
1)Nous envisageons de camper en Ecosse l’été prochain ! Dans ce cas, tu ferais mieux de prévoir une tente parfaitement imperméable, des parapluies et une multitude de vêtements de rechange secs et propres.

2)Pierre refusa de dire à la police où était son complice : bien que cela lui coûtat plusieurs jours de garde à vue, comme il est à la fois loyal et têtu, il ne céda pas.

3)Il aimerait tellement que vous soyez enfin d’accord pour faire tous la même chose en même temps, avec le moins de protestations et le plus de progrès possibles !

4)Je n’ai pas encore réfléchi aux futurs cadeaux de Noël de mes enfants. Pourtant, je déteste m’y prendre au dernier moment et me battre dans la foule pour trouver ce avec quoi ils auront envie de jouer … et que j’aimerai utiliser et expliquer aussi ! Je les connais … Il faut toujours que je joue avec eux ....

5)Quand j’aurai enfin terminé de payer mes différents impôts, me restera-t-il assez d’argent pour acheter quoi que ce soit de superflu pour moi ?

2) Put the necessary ‘question tags’ :
a) Everybody likes her , .......... ?
b) She hardly ever goes to London, ........?
c) She’d better stop mumbling,..............?
d) I’m hard on you,...................?
e) Give me that answer, ...............?
f) The children had too much chocolate,.............?
g) You’d rather not do this, ..............?
h) Let’s go home now,..............?

3) How many mistakes did he make ? Can you please correct them ?

When I arrived to France, I was faced with much problems :
In first, I couldn’ t make end meet. The life is so expensive in Europe … I couldn’t even afford going to the movies every weeks. Fortunatly I got a job in a fast food. Indeed my salary was very low. I can’t stand to be underpayed.
After, my hostess become aware of my situation and improved it a lot. I visited Paris and had less limits. I loved it ! I will go back here when I will be wealthy.

4) ABACUS :
Slide the abacus beads (letters) across the wires to form 5 related words reading down. (Ihe beads are on wires, and CANNOT jump over one another !)

Dear Here4U,

I found the exercises more difficult this time, but I liked them all the more. I came up with 2 possible reasons. I'm either a masochist or I feel content when I am given the opportunity to improve. I've yet to know, but the truth maybe lies somewhere in between. But I digress, sorry.

Translate into English.

1)Nous envisageons de camper en Ecosse l’été prochain ! Dans ce cas, tu ferais mieux de prévoir une tente parfaitement imperméable, des parapluies et une multitude de rechanges sèches et propres.
--> - We are planning to camp in Scotland next week!
- In that case, you'd better make sure you take a completely impermeable tent, umbrellas and lots of spare dry and clean clothes.

2)Pierre refusa de dire à la police où était son complice : bien que cela lui coûtat plusieurs jours de garde à vue, comme il est à la fois loyal et têtu, il ne céda pas.
--> Pierre refused to confess to the police where his accomplice was. Although he has been held in custody for several days as a consequence, he did not yield, since he is both loyal and stubborn.

3)Il aimerait tellement que vous soyez enfin d’accord pour faire tous la même chose en même temps, avec le moins de protestations et le plus de progrès possibles !
--> He would so much like you to agree to do the same thing at the same time, while protesting as less as possible and making as much progress as possible!

4)Je n’ai pas encore réfléchi aux futurs cadeaux de Noël de mes enfants. Pourtant, je déteste m’y prendre au dernier moment et me battre dans la foule pour trouver ce avec quoi ils auront envie de jouer … et que j’aimerai utiliser et expliquer aussi ! Je les connais … Il faut toujours que je joue avec eux ....
--> I haven't been thinking about the future christmas presents for my children. And yet, I hate it when I wait until the last minute and have to fight my way through the crowd to find what they would like to play with. These very things I would like to play with myself and explain to them how they work. I know them all too well. They always need me to play with them. What a bunch of brats! I swear!

5)Quand j’aurai enfin terminé de payer mes différents impôts, me restera-t-il assez d’argent pour acheter quoique ce soit de superflu pour moi ?
--> When I'm done paying my various taxes, will I have enough money left to buy something superfluous for me?

2) Put the necessary ‘question tags’ :
a) Everybody likes her , don't they ?
b) She hardly ever goes to London, does she?
c) She’d better stop mumbling, wouldn't she?
d) I’m hard on you, am I not?
e) Give me that answer, dammit? or Give me that answer, will you?
f) The children had too much chocolate, hadn't they?
g) You’d rather not do this, wouldn't you?
h) Let’s go home now, shall we?

3) How many mistakes did he make ? Can you please correct them ?


When I arrived in France, I was faced with many problems :
At first, I couldn’ t make ends meet. The life was so expensive in Europe … I couldn’t even afford to go to the movies every week s. Fortunatly I got a job in a fast food restaurant. But my salary was very low. I couldn't stand being underpaid.
Later/Afterwards, my hostess became aware of my situation and improved it a lot. I visited Paris and had fewer limits. I loved it ! I will go back there when I am wealthy.
Grade: No good!

4) ABACUS :
Slide the abacus beads (letters) across the wires to form 5 related words reading down. (Ihe beads are on wires, and CANNOT jump over one another !)


|-----------B----Z------------A----|
|--E--R-----------------I-----L----|
|-----G—----N----S-----------------|
|--O--------O----N------I----------|
|-----N-----I-----------T-----L----|
|-----I-----S----A------------E----|
|--A--------E----R -----Y----------|

Oh my, I don't even know where to begin. I guess I'll need a hint ( or two) such as the topic these words refer to.

Oh up until now, I've tried NOT to copy off my fellow comrades oh oh. So Tereda had the first one. I figured out the second one "Rose" but after that, no idea. I've looked up all the words beginning with a Z in my compact dictionary to no avail!

Hello Here4U
I've been looking forward to my favorite recreation all week !
I love everything you give us, and above all, translations which are most useful to me !
Here's the beginning of my work : I'll finish later, I promise !

1.1) We're planning to camp in Scotland next summer ! In that case, you'd better make sure you have a completely impermeable tent, umbrellas and a large change of dry and clean clothes
1.2) Peter refused to tell the police where his accomplice was : even though it costed him several days in custody, since he was both loyal and stubborn, he didn't yield.
1.3) He would so much like you to finally agree to all do the same thing at the same time, with as few complaints (or : protests) and as much progress as possible.
1.4) I haven't thought about my future christmas gifts for my children yet. However, I hate going about it (or : managing) at the last moment, fighting among the crowd to find what they will like to play with ... and I will like to use and explain too ! I know them ... I always have to play with them...
1.5) When I finally finish paying for my different taxes, will there be enough money left for me to buy me anything unnecessary ?

2a) Everybody likes her, don't they ?
2b) She hardly ever goes to London, does she ?
2c) She’d better stop mumbling, hadn't she ?
2d) I’m hard on you, aren't I ?
2e) Give me that answer, will you ?
2f) The children had too much chocolate, didn't they ?
2g) You’d rather not do this, would you ?
2h) Let’s go home now, shall we?

3) A very interesting exercise !!!
When I arrived in France, I was faced with many problems :
In first, I couldn’ t make ends meet. The Life is was so expensive in Europe … I couldn’t even afford going to go to the movies every weeks week.
FortunatlyFortunately, I got a job in a fast food restaurant. Indeed But my salary was very low. I can’t couldn't stand to be being underpayed underpaid.
After Afterwards, my hostess become became aware of my situation and improved it a lot. I visited Paris and had less fewer limits limitations. I loved it ! I will go back here there when I will be am wealthy.

I'd say 20 mistakes, one of which almost passed right under my nose : fortunately

Hello maxwell !
You made me smile ! You say you like the translations (= work!), but you 'rush onto' or 'get rid of' the brain-twisters (= play!) ! You're a player, aren't you ! A very talented one too ... Don't be 'ashamed of it' !
I'll adapt the proverb ... 'All work and no play would make Maxwell a dull man !'

Hello
Thank you for this exercise.

1) Translate from French into English:

1) We're planning on camping in Scotland next summer! In that case, I would suggest a completely waterproof tent, some umbrellas and several changes of clean clothes. I might also suggest a kilt.

2)Pierre refused to tell the police where his partner in crime was. Even though it cost him several days in custody, he didn't give in as he is both loyal and stubborn. Pierre is not an upstanding citizen, is he?

3) They would so like for you to finally agree to do the same thing at the same time with the least amount of protest and the maximum amount of progress.

4) I haven't yet thought of what I will get my children for Christmas. Yet, I hate waiting till the last minute and fighting the crowds in order to find something they'll want to play with...and that I'll also want to use and explain. I know them...they'll want me to play too...

5) When I've finally finished paying my various taxes, will there be enough money to buy myself something frivolous? Like a new hat? Maybe a scarf? Or ... a kilt!

2) Put the necessary ‘question tags’:
a) Everybody likes her, don't they?
b) She hardly ever goes to London, does she?
c) She’d better stop mumbling, hadn't she?
d) I’m hard on you, aren't I?
e) Give me that answer, will/won't you?
f) The children had too much chocolate, didn't they? (The children have had too much chocolate, haven't they?)
g) You’d rather not do this, would you?
h) Let’s go home now, shall we?

3) How many mistakes did he make? Would you please correct them?
I don't know, between the errors and the poor writing...I don't know if I can correct them, but I will try.

When I arrived in France, I was faced with many problems:
At first(1), I couldn’t make ends meet. The cost of living(2) was(3) so high (L) in Europe … I couldn’t even afford to go(4) to the movies each(5) week. Fortunately I got a job in a fast-food (6) restaurant. However,(7) my salary was very low and I couldn’t expect anything but(8) to be underpaid.
Finally(9), my hostess became(3) aware of my situation and improved it a lot(10). I visited Paris and had more choices(11). I loved it! I will go back there(12) when I am(13) wealthy.

(1) Does he mean "at first" considering that everything turns out OK in the end or "First of all"?
(2) How much does a life cost, hein ?
(3) Narration preterite
(4) I prefer the infinitive to the gerund
(5) Every seems like a choice for present tense only; each is required for past tense, isn't it?
(6) Is "fast food" ever used as a standalone noun when referring to a type of job? I eat fast food in a fast food. No, I don't think so.
(7) I find "indeed" to be an inappropriate word here. The most overused word when translating from French to English.
(8) I don't find "stand" to be the right choice here. He might be dismayed by his salary, but not being able to stand it seems a little weird.
(9) Après ?
(10) Not the "casting couch" I hope?
(11) You Frenchies are so pessimistic.
(12) Unfortunately, you can never "go back here", you can only "go back there". But I'd rather say "return". Come back to the five and dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. Here, there, and everywhere.
(13) Ha, that is completely "du français".
(L) Merci, Lucile

My abacus broke and the beads scattered all over the floor. Then my dog ate them.

Hello You all !

As my computer seems to have decided to obey my claims, for once ... I'll post an early correction ...
If other people wanted to do the exercise before the real deadline (in a few hours) do it all the same and I'll send your individual explanation after the collective one !

EXERCICE 22 :

1) Translate from French into English :
1)Nous envisageons de camper en Ecosse l’été prochain ! Dans ce cas, tu ferais mieux de prévoir une tente très imperméable , des parapluies et une multitude de rechanges sèches et propres.

We’re thinking of camping/ planning to camp/ planning on camping/intending to camp in Scotland next Summer. In that case, you’d better have a completely waterproof tent, several umbrellas and a heap of clean and dry clothes.

Many different suggestions for ‘envisageons de’=> all satisfactory if you matched the different constructions and the corresponding expressions!

2)Pierre refusa de dire à la police où était son complice : bien que cela lui coûtat plusieurs jours de garde à vue, comme il est à la fois loyal et borné, il ne céda pas.

Peter refused to tell the police where his accomplice was, though it cost him (he was held) several days in custody; as he is both loyal and stubborn, he wouldn’t yield. (give in/ give him away/betray him).

Well done if you noticed the indirect interrogative clause at the beginning and managed to build it! ‘Good’ for ‘both’and for the different means to express ‘il ne céda pas’. I tried to stick to the text, especially as I like ‘wouldn’t ‘ to express ‘obstination’ …

3)Il aimerait tellement que vous soyez enfin d’accord pour faire (tous) la même chose en même temps, avec le moins de protestations et le plus de progrès possibles !
He would be so pleased if you could finally all agree to do the same thing at the same time, with as few protests, and as much progress as possible.
He would like you all to agree to do the same thing …


Many of you skipped the ‘tous’ which made the sentence much easier to translate!!! N’oubliez-pas ‘le moins de + dénombrable’et ‘le plus de + indénombrable’ pour exprimer la formule et montrer que vous la connaissez pendant un examen (Komiks and others, maybe ...) vous connaissez : 3 fois plus = 3 fois autant que ; 4 fois moins de = 4 fois aussi peu que ; en au moins ! )
Attention ! Tous ceux qui ont mis ‘he’d like’ devaient faire suivre d’un infinitif complet ... ; certaines phrases proposées 'passaient' cependant, comme je vous l’ai dit dans vos corrections individuelles …

4)Je n’ai pas encore réfléchi aux futurs cadeaux de Noël de mes enfants. Pourtant, je déteste m’y prendre au dernier moment et me battre dans la foule pour trouver ce avec quoi ils auront envie de jouer … et que j’aimerai utiliser et expliquer aussi ! Je les connais … Il faut toujours que je joue avec eux ....

I haven’t yet thought of my kids’ future Xmas presents. Yet, I hate waiting for the last minute and fighting my way into the crowds in order to find what they’ll feel like playing with, and what I too, would like to use and explain. I know them too well! They always want me to play with them!

Je déteste = I hate + ing ; ‘me battre dans la foule’= bonne idée pour ‘elbowing my way through‘, shouldering my way through ’ for me, no elbows or shoulders ... just a simple ‘fight’ but I liked the plural of 'the crowds' which (I feel,) has a derogatory touch) and turns the crowds into the Shakespearean mobs that he hated so much …

5)Quand j’aurai enfin terminé de payer mes différents impôts, me restera-t-il assez d’argent pour acheter quoique ce soit de superflu pour moi ?

When I have finally finished paying my different taxes, shall I be left (OK! will I be left ...) with enough money to buy something frivolous for me ?

Good for those who didn’t fall into the trap of using our ‘very French’ future after ‘when’. In my opinion, the present perfect, (and not the simple present) was necessary here.(1 ‘the action will be finished’ antériorité mieux prise en compte …+2: use of finally .)
I couldn’t resist the pleasure of writing the terribly British ‘Shall I be left ‘(I love passives too …) Will you pardon me ? Don’t forget I’m here to have fun too …

2) Put the necessary ‘question tags’ :
a)Everybody likes her , DON’T THEY? (Everybody + verb in the singular, BUT tag in the plural!)
b)She hardly ever goes to London,DOES SHE?(As 'hardly' is semi-negative, it already contains ‘no’=> it’s not repeated in the tag!)
c)She’d better stop mumbling,HADN’T SHE? (She’d better = she HAD better) => tag in ‘hadn’t she?’
d)I’m hard on you, AREN’T I?(I am => tag in the plural ‘aren’t I?’)
e)Give me that answer, WILL YOU? ***(see below)
f)The children had too much chocolate,DIDN’T THEY? ('Had', here, was a verb => you needed the auxiliary for the tag + negative form as the sentence was in the affirmative =>’didn’t they ; oppose to: ‘She’s (has= auxiliary) got 3 brothers, hasn’t she?’
g)You’d rather not do this, WOULD YOU? (You’d rather = you would rather)
h)Let’s go home now, SHALL WE?.***

Well ! I kept the 2 imperatives to insist: in order to soften the orders given by the imperative, the tag should be in the interrogative future ! ‘Go to the window, will you?’ ‘’Let’s do it now, shall we?’ English speaking people are much less authoritative and bossy than Latins are !

3) How many mistakes did he make ? (so many ... we don't know really ... but I've seen a lot worse ...!) Can you please correct them ?

When I arrived IN to France, I was faced with MANY much problems :
AT In first, I couldn’ t make endS meet. The ( life is) COST OF LIVING WAS so HIGH expensive in Europe … I couldn’t even afford TO GO going to the movies every weeks. FortunatEly I got a job in a fast food RESTAURANT.YET Indeed my salary was very low. I can’t COULD’NT stand to be BEING UNDERPAID .underpayed
THENAfter(AfterWARDS , AFTER THAT,) my hostess become ,BECAME aware of my situation and improved it a lot. I visited Paris and had FEWER less limits. I loved it ! I will go back here THERE when I AM will be wealthy.

I don’t agree with one of you changing my context … My teenager was a paying guest => he had a hostess who, at first just gave him the bare minimum, and then became more ‘motherly’ ...

Now : 'The Life' => first it is abstract => Life... You should go and read notrepere's excellent explanation of this whole exercise ...How much is 'Life' or even 'a life' worth ... ? Is it cheap or expensive ... Obviously, here, the 'poorly written text' was referring to 'the cost of living' which is either 'high' or 'low' ...and YES! NP, for a great proportion of French people 'a fast food' is the place where you eat that sort of food ... especially for young people ! 'On va au fast food pour prendre un hamburger !' et les hommes mettent aussi des smokings pour aller dans des réceptions !

4) ABACUS :
Slide the abacus beads (letters) across the wires to form 5 related words reading down. (the beads are on wires, and CANNOT jump over one another !)


|--B---------Z-----A-------------|
|--E---R-----I------------L------|

They were flowers this time … The following one is ready with another theme …

I hope you had fun ... I know that some had a good time, others had headaches, one lost her Latin (which makes me very sad ! ... Well, I'll try to be less naughty in N° 24 (too late for 23 ... I'm posting it in a minute if my computer remains obedient !)
