Message de leavar posté le 26-04-2015 à 14:22:36 (S | E | F)
Bonjour,
est-ce que quelqu'un pourrait m'aider au niveau de l'orthographe et de la conjugaison de mon texte s'il vous plait?
Merci pour vos réponses.

I am going to talk about the notion spaces and exchange. This notion deals with the geographical and symbolic areas that all society occupy and the interactions between men and different societies. Our world is built on the exploration and conquest of new spaces. The different cultural, economic, sociological and language interactions have shaped and characterised our modern-day world.
So does the american dream is a real?
So, firstly we will see that yes the american dream was a reality and in the secondly we will see that the American dream become a nightmare for some people.

When the people immigrate in the USA, they want to found the American dream. The phrase « American dream» was coined by James Truslow in his book «The epic of America». The term American dream» is used in many ways, but it essentially is an idea that suggests that anyone in the US can succeed through hard work and has the potential to lead a happy, successful life. But this term is complicated because a dream for someone isn’t necessarily a dreams for others.
In class, we have see a cartoon who talk about the people who arriving on the boat this people was a pilgrims. Originally from England, they fled religious persecution. They wished to be free to practise whatever religion they chose. They decided to leave Europe and start a new life in the new world. They sailed across the Atlantic Ocean aboard the Mayflower and arrived at Plymouth Rock.
They wanted to built a new society, a very moral society where everyone would to contribute to make life better.
In class we can see an other document, this document was a text who is named «Brooklyn» is written by Colm Toibin in 2009, this text talks about the story of two Irish woman who are on a boat for go to Eillis Island. This woman they go to the USA to escape misery because they came from Irish and in this country they are the famine.

But this immigration to found the American dream in the USA was few times a nightmare.
The cartoon, that I have told you, show us anoter aspect . Indeed with this cartoon the author’s had some intent. He makes the ironic comparison between the arrival on the Pilgrims and the present day issue of immigration in the USA. When the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, the Indians help them. If the Indians had not helped them, they would have starved. Unfortunately, the Indians were not paid in return for their kidness since the settlers soon came into conflict with them over land and culture. They fled because they were persecuted but came to reproduce the same pattern with the Native Americans. Nowadays, the American governement spends millions of dollars a year trying to protect its borders. Contrary to the indians, Americans are desperate to keep people out.
In Eillis Island many family was broken because when a member of family was seek they can’t go in the USA and he must return to his country moreover many peoples die during the travel for the USA because they are a lot of immigrant who want to go to in the USA so if one of them was seek he can give is virus to an other and make an epidemy they life in horrible condition.

In conclusion, I could say that the American dream was reel because he gives a lot of esperence to someone and make believe into a better «world» where many peoples can be rich and live a life succesfull but when we go in the USA nothing is easy and before they can realize their American Dream they meet many barrier and often the american dream is a lie , moreover the usa is a country who is build on many deads an pain.

Our world is built on the exploration and conquest of new spaces. The different cultural, economic, sociological and language interactions have shaped and characterised our modern-day world.

Bonjour,
les parties de votre devoir qui sont des reprises de vos cours sont correctes, votre anglais personnel par contre est en général faux (conjugaison du verbe être, singulier pluriel, conjugaison des temps: présent (le s de la 3ème personne), les prétérits, les participes passés, la confusion entre they are, ils sont et there are, il y a, le confusion entre person et people, etc ) Il reste encore un certain nombres d'erreurs.

I am going to talk about the notion spaces and exchanges(essayez de citer le sujet sans fautes). This notion deals with the geographical and symbolic areas that all society (pluriel, je pense) occupy and the interactions between men and different societies. Our world is built on the exploration and conquest of new spaces. The different cultural, economic, sociological and language interactions have shaped and characterised our modern-day world. This notion was complete 'sens??) and i’m(auxiliaire avoir!) deciced to focus on the theme of the immigration with the American Dream.
We can ask us(c'est pronominal ici) a question: The American Dream is real?(il serait temps d'apprendre à faire une forme interrogative par inversion: modèle: Is he absent ?)

So, firstly we will see that yes the American Dream was a reality and in the secondly ( ne se dit pas)we will see that the American dream becomes a nightmare for some people.

When the people immigrate in the USA, they want to find the American dream. The phrase « American dream» was coined by James Truslow in his book «The epic of America». The term «American Dream» is used in many ways, but it essentially is an idea that suggests that anyone in the US can succeed through hard work and has the potential to lead a happy, successful life. But this term is complicated because a dream for someone isn’t necessarly a dreams for others.

In class, we have see(participe passé! nous avons vu, pas nous avons voir, d'ailleurs, un prétérit irait mieux, c'est implicitement daté) a cartoon, this document talk (1) le S du présent! 2) une caricature ne parle pas, elle n'a pas de cordes vocales) about the people who arrived on the boat (elles arrivent sur "le bateau. Quel bateau?); these people are pilgrims. Originally from England, they fled religious persecution. They wished to be free to practise whatever religion they chose. They decided to leave Europe and start a new life in the new world. They sailed across the Atlantic Ocean aboard the Mayflower and arrived at Plymouth Rock.
They wanted to built a new society, a very moral society where everyone would contribute to make life better.
In class we can see (ne va pas ici! on emploie "I can see you", je te vois! quand c'est en direct, sous vos yeux. Mettez le verbe au prétérit, sans can) another document, this document was a text named «Brooklyn», is(à supprimer) written by Colm Toibin in 2009, this text talks (un texte ne cause pas) about the story of an Irish woman who is on a boat for go to Ellis Island. This woman go(3ème personne présent le s!) to the USA to find a job because they(vous commencez par this woman au singulier et maintenant vous êtes au pluriel en they) came from Ireland and in this country Eilis doesn’t (can't irait mieux) find a job.

pour traduire "pour": for + nom: this present is for my sister.
to + verbe pour exprimer un but: I come here to work, not to play.

But this immigration to find the American dream in the USA was sometimes a nightmare.
The cartoon,(enlever la virgule) that I have told you about, show (le S du présent!!) us another aspect . Indeed with this cartoon the author’s had some intent(maladroit). He makes the ironic comparison between the arrival of the Pilgrims and the present day issue of immigration in the USA. When the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth Rock, the Indians helped them. If the Indians had not helped them, they would have starved. Unfortunately, the Indians were not paid in return for their kidness since the settlers soon came into conflict with them over land and culture. They fled because they were persecuted but came to reproduce the same pattern with the Native Americans. Nowadays, the American governement spends millions of dollars a year trying to protect its borders. Unlike the Indians, Americans are desperate to keep people out.
In Ellis Island many families were broken because when a member of family was sick, they can’t(mettez le prétérit) go in the USA and he(qui ça, il au singulier?) must(à mettre au prétérit) return to his country. Moreover many peoples(pas de s) die (à mettre au prétérit) during the travel to the USA because they are(confusion entre ils sont et il y a + à mettre au prétérit) a lot of immigrants who want(prétérit) to go to in the USA so if one of them was sick he can(prétérit) give the virus to another and make an epidemic. They lives(à mettre au prétérit, et pas de s au pluriel du verbe) in horrible conditions.


In conclusion, I could say that the American dream was reel(on dirait qu'un traducteur automatique a laissé les mots mal orthographiés en français comme reel et esperence!) because he gives a lot of esperence to someone(à quelqu'un ? à qui ?) and make believe into a better «world» where many peoples can be rich and live a life succesfull(dans l'autre sens, un seul l à successful) but when we go in(mouvement, déplacement, or in est statique) the USA nothing is easy and before they can realize their American Dream they meet many barrier(mettez un pluriel derrière many) and often the american dream is a lie , moreover the usa(majuscules) is a country who(who ne convient que pour des personnes humaines) is build(participe passé) on many deads(dead est un adjectif, vous cherchez le nom "mort" and pain.
