Ex. 103/ following your wishes…
Hello, Dearest Friends... and future Newcomers!
Rythme de quinzaine … encore pour le moment... D’après vos retours, ce rythme convient à la majorité d’entre vous, mais frustre un peu les plus rapides … (d’où « Our Story » qui vous permet de participer plus souvent et agréablement.)
Pour ce qui est de la « livraison » de vos exercices, disons qu’il est très gentil de continuer à étaler dans le temps la restitution de votre « rendu » (sauf exceptions) jusqu’à « Jour de correction moins 3 ou 4» (mais vous savez bien que je corrige même les exercices postés après correction. )
Que vous dire de cet exercice ? Qu’il n’est pas facile (ne cherchez pas la facilité, vous seriez déçus ou je le serais …), que c’est toujours un vrai et qu’il sera corrigé online le Mardi 14 mars, tard comme toujours.
Et comme toujours aussi, THE FORCE is with us!

I) "Our Story"! « L’histoire commune » est encore en première place. Beaucoup la plébiscitent : vous ne pouvez poster votre phrase 1 que SI VOUS L’AVEZ COMPLETEE SELON LES REGLES (à relire dans les introductions aux Ex 100 - 101- 102 - elles ont été assouplies pour votre plaisir ...)(ou si vous choisissez de ne pas la faire). Les autres exercices peuvent être laissés inachevés (limite enlevée , à l’essai … ) mais soyez raisonnables, please) et vous devez toujours m’indiquer en clair, et bleu lorsque vous êtes prêts pour la correction de l'ensemble.
Chacun a la liberté de poursuivre l'histoire 6 fois [juste pour la relancer si elle s'enlise ... ] (pas plus de 20 mots à chaque fois, et toujours en corrigeant les fautes du/des prédécesseur(s) en bleu.
« First come, first served » : donc dès que quelqu'un poste, celui qui arrive derrière est obligé de s'adapter à ce qui vient d'être posté: il adaptera sa phrase pour poursuivre l'histoire de façon grammaticalement cohérente.
Cette fois, c’est Djim qui nous donne le thème de départ ! Merci Djim !
The circus has put its Big Top up on a square. Many adults and children have come to the show…

II)Translate into English :
1. Cette vidéo où tu joues de la guitare a fait beaucoup de bruit et maintenant, tu as des tas d'admirateurs. Cependant, ne laisse pas la réussite te tourner la tête.
2. Vous devrez profiter de tous les petits bonheurs possibles des premières années de vos enfants parce qu'elles seront très vite passées
3. Tu n'as pas le droit de lâcher une bombe comme celle-ci et de t'en aller, en me laissant perplexe, malheureux incapable de tenter de trouver un sens à ce qu'il me reste à vivre.
Maxwell 4. -" Ne te laisse pas faire ! Tu as ton mot à dire, toi aussi ! " -" Oh ! Arrêtez de chipoter ! On peut trouver un terrain d'entente, quand même ! Je propose de couper la poire en deux. Alors ? " - " Vendu ! "
Maxwell 5. Lisez attentivement l'énoncé, imprégnez-vous-en, ne partez pas tête baissée et réfléchissez bien. Je rappelle que les portables sont interdits. Vous avez quatre heures. Maxwell!

III) Translate into French:
I had absolutely no idea of the impending doom that was heading my way like a giant wrecking ball. I only knew that five dollars was an enormous, nearly unimaginable amount of money, and as awful as peas were, only one plate of them stood between me and the possession of that five dollars. I began to force the wretched things down my throat.
My mother was livid. My grandmother had that self-satisfied look of someone who has thrown down an unbeatable trump card. « I can do what I want, Ellen, and you can’t stop me. » My mother glared at her mother. She glared at me. No one can glare like my mother. If there were a glaring Olympics, she would undoubtedly win the gold medal.
I, of course, kept shoving peas down my throat.

Facile à comprendre, cette version … pas forcément facile à mettre en bon français … Allez ! Courage ! THE FORCE is here !

FINISHED

Hello Here4U and Hi everyone
Thanks so much again for this new exercise which gives us the chance to be more creative than ever . I hope this new story will be as breathless as the preceding one ! I rely on all of us

I) "Our Story"!
The circus has put its Big Top up on a square. Many adults and children have come to the show…
Clowns, acrobats, tightrope walkers, wild animals have settled in Rosemont for what could have been a great week-end.

II)Translate into English :
1. Cette vidéo où tu joues de la guitare a fait beaucoup de bruit et maintenant, tu as des tas d'admirateurs. Cependant, ne laisse pas la réussite te tourner la tête.
This video where you're playing the guitar has made a great buzz and now, you've got lots of fans. However, don't let the success go to your head.

2. Vous devrez profiter de tous les petits bonheurs possibles des premières années de vos enfants parce qu'elles seront très vite passées
You'll have to enjoy every little moment of happiness with your children's early years as they will fly by.

3. Tu n'as pas le droit de lâcher une bombe comme celle-ci et de t'en aller, en me laissant perplexe, malheureux, incapable de tenter de trouver un sens à ce qu'il me reste à vivre.
You have no right (*) to drop a bombshell like that and go away, leaving me confused, miserable, unable to find meaning in what's left for me to live

(*) je l'ai trouvé plus fort et plus précis que "can't"

4. -" Ne te laisse pas faire ! Tu as ton mot à dire, toi aussi ! " -" Oh ! Arrêtez de chipoter ! On peut trouver un terrain d'entente, quand même ! Je propose de couper la poire en deux. Alors ? " - " Vendu ! "
"- Don't take that from him ! You have a say in this too ! - Oh ! Let's stop the quibbling ! We can find a common ground, can't we ? I propose we split the difference. How about it ? - It's a deal !"

5. Lisez attentivement l'énoncé, imprégnez-vous-en, ne partez pas tête baissée et réfléchissez bien. Je rappelle que les portables sont interdits. Vous avez quatre heures.
Read the wording carefully, soak it into your brain, don't rush headlong into it, and cogitate. I remind that cellphones are forbidden. You've got four hours.


II) Translate into French:
I had absolutely no idea of the impending doom that was heading my way like a giant wrecking ball. I only knew that five dollars was an enormous, nearly unimaginable amount of money, and as awful as peas were, only one plate of them stood between me and the possession of that five dollars. I began to force the wretched things down my throat.
My mother was livid. My grandmother had that self-satisfied look of someone who has thrown down an unbeatable trump card. « I can do what I want, Ellen, and you can’t stop me. » My mother glared at her mother.

Je n'avais absolument aucune idée de la catastrophe imminente qui m'attendait comme une boule de démolition géante. Je savais juste que 5 dollars, c'était une somme énorme, presque inimaginable, et aussi infects que les petits pois étaient, une seule assiettée se tenait entre moi et la possession de ces 5 dollars. Je commençai à faire descendre ces maudits trucs dans ma gorge.
Ma mère était furax. Ma grand-mère eut cet air d'autosatisfaction de quelqu'un qui abat un atout maître. "Je fais ce que je veux, Ellen, et tu ne peux pas m'en empêcher." Ma mère foudroya sa mère du regard. Elle me jeta un oeil furibond. Personne ne peut fixer ainsi du regard comme ma mère. S'il y avait une compétition olympique du lancer de regard furieux, nul doute qu'elle remporterait la médaille d'or.
Moi, bien sûr, je continuais à me fourrer des petits pois dans le gosier.

Ma mère était blême. Ma grand-mère avait cet air d'autosatisfaction digne de quelqu'un qui a jeté sur la table un atout imparable. "Je fais ce que je veux, Ellen, et tu ne peux pas me contrecarrer.

ATTENTION! Vous oubliez de corriger les fautes des "copains"! ( si personne ne l'a fait, je m'y mettrai quand je pourrai ...) 😍

Je suis désolée ... bien que j'aie bien lu le post de Taji, je n'ai pas vu qu'elle avait participé à la story et je n'ai pas tenu compte de sa phrase. Pour moi la dernière était celle de Joe. Excusez-moi d'avoir de ce fait faussé le déroulement de l'histoire.
Et je n'avais pas compris qu'on ne pouvait pas écrire de phrase sns avoir fait une partie des autres exercices.
Bonne journée à tous ...

Hello Dears !

Merci aux "petits nouveaux" et aux "revenants" de bien relire les explications de la règle de l'exercice "Our story" !!! Sinon, on s'y perd et c'est ingérable ... mais pas de problèmes pour le moment ...

D'autre part, je vous rappelle que dans la correction collective du 102 (que vous avez tous lue attentivement ... ) je demandais deux volontaires pour relever le vocabulaire de "Our Story" et le traduire (ou traduire l'histoire, comme vous voulez ... )Pour le moment, les volontaires ne se bousculent pas ... S'il n'y en a pas, je le ferai, mais pas avant vendredi ...
I don't want to be a kill-joy, but if the whole group is to progress, vocabulary and grammar are to be learnt. or remembered!
Hope you have a good time with 103.

Attention ! Puisque les participations sont limitėes à 20 mots ( VOLONTAIREMENT ! ) il va de soi qu'il n'est pas PERMIS ni POSSIBLE de faire deux posts de suite sans qu'un partenaire ait pu intervenir avant ! Nous laissons les Infractions passées mais continuons dans les clous, sinon, les phrases non conformes aux règles seront effacées ... ( dit-elle avec son air de prof ! )

EDIT: Certains sont étourdis ... ou lisent trop vite ...(lis tes mps, choco! ) Allez, on se concentre !

Pour l'histoire 103, je demande que vous corrigiez les prédécesseurs, pas que vous traduisiez une histoire incomplète ... On invente en anglais 103, et ensuite (retour sur 102), on donne le vocabulaire spécifique pour les petits copains, une fois l'histoire terminée (Maxwell est volontaire pour travailler en binôme avec ??? moi??? je veux bien le faire, mais ça vous apporte bien plus si c'est vous qui le faites ...)

Clowns, acrobats, tightrope walkers, wild animals have settled in Rosemont for what could have been a great week-end.
In the circus tent, the public has filled the rows of seats. All eyes were turned towards the scene.
Noone will forget the great beginning of the show featuring this very special performance with cats dancing with their trainer !
The overhead show in the dark with the trapeze artists was mind-boggling, successful : everybody held their breath.
And then came the turn of a group of roaring lions and tigers, which obeyed with reluctance to their tamer.
However, during the show, a lion cub disappeared from its cage, and had not been found despite the searches.
What's more, the biggest tiger slowly climbed down its stool and approached the tamer, heading for his throat.
To the audience's great relief, it only licked the tamer’s face. But guards stayed on alert...
A guard placed around the ring shot a dart to make the tiger sleep... But reached the tamer !
The public remained breathless. The beasts perceiving instinctively they were without control were getting nervous, starting to brawl.
then the tamer fainted ; one tiger attacked him, followed by another one. The audience panicked. Screams...

Je n'avais aucune idée de la malédiction potentielle qui menait ma vie comme un boulet de démolition géant.Je savais seulement
que 5$ représentait une somme énorme, presque inimaginable,et c'était comme s'il s'agissait d'avaler une assiette de mauvais
haricots pour atteindre les 5$ !Je commençait donc à les pousser, virtuellement, dans ma gorge!!
Ma mère était livide. Ma grand mère avait cet air de satisfaction de celle qui vient d'abattre un atout majeur." Je fais ce que
je veux quand je veux, Ellen, et ne me retiens pas". Ma mère posa sur sa mère un un regard furieux. Puis sur moi. Personne que ma
mère ne pouvait jeter un tel regard. Si il y avait des jeux Olympiques de regards furieux, elle gagnerait sans aucun doute la médaille d'or.
Moi, bien sûr, je continuais d'avaler ma pillule .

Hello Here4u,
Thanks to you and Maxwell for your exercices.
There is a tense atmosphere in this circus !!! Wow !
ready for marking
Our Story"!
The circus has put its Big Top up on a square. Many adults and children have come to the show…
Clowns, acrobats, tightrope walkers, wild animals have settled in Rosemont for what could have been a great week-end.
In the circus tent, the public has filled the row of seats and all the eyes were turned towards the scene.
Not anybody wants to forget the very special show with cats who danced with their animal trainer: really great! (1/6 maximum…)
The overhead show in the dark with the trapeze artists had been mind-boggling, successful : everybody had held his breath.
And then was the turn of a group of roaring lions and tigers, which obeyed with reluctance to their tamer. (20)).
However, a lion cub has disappeared during the show from its cage, and has not been found despite of searches.
What's more, the biggest tiger slowly climbed down its stool and approached the tamer, heading for his throat.
To the audience's great relief, it only licked the tamer’s face. But guards stayed on alert...
A guard placed around the ring shot a dart to make the tiger sleep... But reached the tamer !
The public remained breathless. The beasts perceiving instinctively they were without control were getting nervous, starting to brawl.
then the tamer fainted ; one tiger attacked him, followed by another one. The audience panicked. Screams...
all of a sudden, a magic backlash occured: all the people were gaping! The supposedly lost cub was conjured up..
An assistant has come in the cage with a whip and made the tigers go out by the iron tunnel. (20)

II)Translate into English :
1. Cette vidéo où tu joues de la guitare a fait beaucoup de bruit et maintenant, tu as des tas d'admirateurs. Cependant, ne laisse pas la réussite te tourner la tête.
This video where you are playing guitar has made the buzz and presently, you have many admirers. However, don’t let the success send your brain spinning.

2. Vous devrez profiter de tous les petits bonheurs possibles des premières années de vos enfants parce qu'elles seront très vite passées.
You’ll grasp all the possible little joys about the early years of your children because they will be very quickly gone.

3. Tu n'as pas le droit de lâcher une bombe comme celle-ci et de t'en aller, en me laissant perplexe, malheureux incapable de tenter de trouver un sens à ce qu'il me reste à vivre.
You don’t have the right to drop a bombshell like this and go away, leaving me puzzled, sad, unable to find a way for what I have to live.

Maxwell 4. -" Ne te laisse pas faire ! Tu as ton mot à dire, toi aussi ! " -" Oh ! Arrêtez de chipoter ! On peut trouver un terrain d'entente, quand même ! Je propose de couper la poire en deux. Alors ? " - " Vendu ! "
« Don’t remain passive ! You too have your say ! » - « Oh ! Stop to quibble ! A middle ground can be found, anyway ! I suggest spliting the difference. And ? » - « Sold ! »

Maxwell 5. Lisez attentivement l'énoncé, imprégnez-vous-en, ne partez pas tête baissée et réfléchissez bien. Je rappelle que les portables sont interdits. Vous avez quatre heures.
Read the wording carefully, immerse yourself in it, don’t start immediatly and have a good thing. I recall that mobiles are forbidden. You get four hours.

III) Translate into French:
I had absolutely no idea of the impending doom that was heading my way like a giant wrecking ball. I only knew that five dollars was an enormous, nearly unimaginable amount of money, and as awful as peas were, only one plate of them stood between me and the possession of that five dollars. I began to force the wretched things down my throat.
My mother was livid. My grandmother had that self-satisfied look of someone who has thrown down an unbeatable trump card. « I can do what I want, Ellen, and you can’t stop me. » My mother glared at her mother. She glared at me. No one can glare like my mother. If there were a glaring Olympics, she would undoubtedly win the gold medal.
I, of course, kept shoving peas down my throat.
Rick BEYER, The Tales of American Life.
Je n’avais absolument aucune idée du destin tragique qui allait me frapper tel un énorme boulet de démolition. Je savais seulement que cinq dollars représentaient une énorme, presque inimaginable quantité d’argent, et aussi mauvais qu’étaient les petits pois, un seul plat de ceux-ci me séparaient de la possession de ces cinq dollars. Je commençai par me forcer à en caler au fond de ma gorge.
Ma mère était pâle. Ma grand-mère avait cet air d’autosatisfaction d’une personne qui a lancé une carte maîtresse imbattable. « Je peux obtenir tout ce que je veux, Ellen, et toi tu ne peux pas m’en empêcher. » Ma maman lança un regard furieux à sa mère. Et à moi aussi. Personne ne peut lancer des regards aussi furieux que ceux de ma mère. S’il y avait une compétition olympique de regards furieux, elle gagnerait sans aucun doute la médaille d’or.
Moi, bien sûr, je gardais les petits pois bourrés au fond de ma gorge.

Hello, Dear Friends!

Merci à vous tous et spécialement à Lucile et Maxwell qui passent derrière vous pour réparer ce que les uns ou les autres oublient … Merci !
Bien ennuyée, avec ½ ordinateur, et une tablette non compatible avec le site, c’est une vraie galère … J’ai l’impression d’émettre des ondes très négatives puisque j’arrive à mettre en panne même un superbe ordi tout neuf ! Je ne sais pas quand je vais le récupérer …

Pour « Our Story » :J’ai envie de laisser l’introduction au present perfect … Le résultat des actions habituelles était existant le fameux jour où il va arriver …. ???? On verra quoi ! c’est aussi un vrai bilan de l’état du cirque au moment de l'action …
Ensuite, un passé de narration me semble plus judicieux, (et ses concordances) comme l’a mis Maxwell …
j'ai aussi changé "a scene" qui me semblait ambigu ! a scene = the scene which is happening ... et je suis certaine que c'était ce que l'auteur voulait, mais j'ai eu envie de vous donner : a stage = une scène d'artistes (and we "are merely players"!) et une piste de cirque = a ring (qui apparaissait déjà dns notre texte !)

The circus has put its Big Top up on a square. Many adults and children have come to the show…
Clowns, acrobats, tightrope walkers, wild animals have settled in Rosemont for what could have been a great week-end.
In the circus, the public had filled the rows of seats. All the eyes were turned towards the ring.
No one will forget the great beginning of the show featuring this very special performance with cats dancing with their trainer !
The overhead show in the dark with the trapeze artists was mind-boggling, successful: everybody was holding their breath.
And then came a group of roaring lions and tigers, which obeyed their tamer reluctantly.
However, during the show, a lion cub disappeared from its cage, and was not found despite the searches.
What's more, the biggest tiger slowly climbed down its stool and approached the tamer, heading for his throat.
To the audience's great relief, it only licked the tamer’s face. But guards stayed on alert...
A guard placed around the ring shot a dart to make the tiger sleep... But reached the tamer!
The public remained breathless. Instinctively, the beasts perceived they were without tamers, and getting nervous, started brawling.
Then the tamer fainted; one tiger attacked him, followed by another one. The audience panicked. Screams...
All of a sudden, a magical backlash occurred: everybody started gaping when the alleged lost cub appeared.
An assistant came into the cage with a whip and made the tigers go out through the metal tunnel.
A hullabaloo started agitating the upper rows on the right... I couldn't make out what the howling was for... (20)


It's your go, now...

Hello Taiji!

Merci de ta proposition chère Taiji ... Nous ne sommes pas "obligés" de faire ce travail complémentaire, (mais je sais que tu apprends pas mal de vocabulaire sur les fiches que tu fais, ainsi que d'autres participants, d'ailleurs ... ) OK, donc, pour le 103 (cette correction sera à préparer en même temps que le 104, mais tu peux anticiper au fur et à mesure ! ). Pour le 102 Choco et Maxwell assureront. Un grand MERCI à eux aussi ... You're definitely GREAT!

Attention de ne pas oublier ou de mélanger les couleurs ... vert = c'est votre proposition personnelle ; bleu = une faute signalée. Bon week-end !

Hello Here4u,

I – Into English
1 – This video in which you’re playing the guitar has been a great hit and now you’ve got lots of admirers. However don’t let the success go to your head.
2 – You must make the most of all the little joys of your children’s early years because they will quickly fly by
3 – You are not allowed to fire such a bombshell and to go away, leaving me puzzled, unhappy and unable to find a meaning to the rest of my life
4 – Don’t let yourself be persuaded ! You are entitled to have your say too ! “Oh, stop quibbling ! A common ground can be found, can’t it ? I suggest meeting halfway. What do you think ? OK let’s do that !!
5 – Look closely at the wording, absorb it, don’t rush at it and do think about it. I remind you that mobile phones are forbidden. You’ve got four hours.

II – Into French
I had absolutely no idea of the impending doom that was heading my way like a giant wrecking ball. I only knew that five dollars was an enormous, nearly unimaginable amount of money and as awful as peas were, only one plate of them stood between me and the possession of that five dollars. I began to force the wretched things down my throat. My mother was livid. My grandmother had that self-satisfied look of someone who has thrown down an unbeatable trump card. “I can do what I want, Ellen, and you can’t stop me”. My mother glared at her mother. She glared at me. No one can glare like my mother. If there were a glaring Olympics, she would undoubtedly win the gold medal. I, of course, kept shoving peas down my throat.

Je n’avais aucune idée du sort funeste qui allait frapper ma vie comme un projectile géant. Je savais seulement que 5 dollars c’était une somme énorme, inimaginable et qu’aussi mauvais soient-ils, seule une assiettée de petits pois se tenait entre moi et ces 5 dollars. Je commençai à ingurgiter ces maudites choses. Ma mère était livide. Ma grand’mère avait le regard d’autosatisfaction de quelqu’un qui vient d’abattre un atout majeur. « Je fais ce que je veux, Ellen, tu ne peux pas m’empêcher. Ma mère me lança un regard furieux. Personne excepté ma mère ne pouvait vous lancer un tel regard. S’il y avait une Olympiade des regards furieux, elle gagnerait sans aucun doute la médaille d’or. Moi, bien sur, je continuais à enfourner les petits pois.

Thank u once more - Have a nice week-end -

Hello djim 21
je voulais dire a flock of tame (apprivoisés) toucans et non pas ten(dix) mais j'ai fait une faute d'orthographe .
Ma phrase manque par la suite.

Hello taiji43,
How could we guess that 'taine' should have been 'tame'?
Your sentence is no longer missing as I asked the author of the previous message to write the sentences again

Hello everybody,
I hope you'll all be more careful when adding a sentence because if words are missing we can't understand the whole story. Please check the messages above the one you are going to write and send... and check again your message once you have sent it just in case someone else has just posted his at the same time
It's easy, isn't it?
