Hello, Dear helpers…

PLEASE, HELP MY STUDENT... He needs you!
My student has chosen to read and write a lot about languages because he wishes he had learnt more of them. He has tried to explain to us what he's understood in his readings, - and he did understand quite well – though he left 16 mistakes in this passage. I’m sure you’ll be able to find them all and help him correct them, as a reward for his effort!
This text is a as ever, and the correction will be online on Tuesday, 28 January 2020.

II) COMMENT :
Learning other languages may be essential for your work (if you deal with people or texts written in another language), but even if you don't seem to need it on a regular basis, it helps you analyse the words, make connections between your own words in your native language and the language you're learning, so it helps you memorize. It definitely makes your brain work.
In a nutshell, "I don't want to lose it, so I use it! (I'm talking about my brains of course)" (89 w)

Volunteers may, if they fancy it, tell us what, in their opinion, is the main idea of the text and comment on it in 120 words at most!


The main idea of the text is that of enlarge and improve the communication between people of different countries, by means of school teaching of foreign languages.
The article speaks about a teaching in the secondary schools but, in my opinion, such kind of "innovation" should be adopted starting from the elementary schools.
The reason why is that the brain of a child is (simply said) like a sponge and can "absorb" more notions even than an adolescent.
This affirmation is based upon my personal experience, for in May of 1945,
all children of my district aged 5 to 7 years were provisionally sent to frequent a nuns college, where we were successfully taught elementary notions of: English, French, Spanish.121

Bitter comment.
Alas, it lasted only four months, that is the time necessary to recover the schoolrooms damaged by the fighting in the city during the last days of the war and so, everything
related to the foreign languages we were taught , went lost. The name of the college was Notre Dame de Sion and it’s still working only privately and only female pupils and students are being admitted..

Thanking you a lot for the nice exercise, I remain wishing you a sweet Sunday.
So long.
Joe39

(2) Why learn…? => why + infinitif sans to => why learn a language? Why not learn a language?
(3) spoken by hundreds of millions of people = Là aussi, le « piège » était évident ; confortés par le premier « of », vous étiez rassurés, et … inattentifs pour la suite ! «Hundreds» et «millions» étaient bien des nombres imprécis (des noms et non pas des adjectifs numéraux) et qui s’accordent tous les deux et reliés entre eux par «of».
(4) «to wOnder»= se demander alors que «to wAnder»= errer sans but.
(5) … speakers explain how making the effort= comment « le fait de faire » un effort, tel effet, ou tel autre … Alors que «How to make an effort» = comment faire un effort (répond à une méthode)= comment fait-on pour faire un effort ? ...
(6) It gave me THE confidence to interview= non pas la confiance en général, mais celle, bien déterminée de faire un entretien … (beaucoup de fautes ici aussi … )
(7) they bring : les sujets sont au pluriel et rassemblés par ET, conjonction de coordination. => THEY.
(8) a language helps to break: encore une fois, un de mes favoris : to help DO something/ to help TO DO something, mais pas help + ing
(9) the best thing; il fallait ici utiliser un SUPERLATIF et non pas un comparatif (= comparaison entre deux choses).
(10) something that teachers believe strongly in. Il ne fallait pas oublier le rejet de la préposition après le verbe : something they believe in. TO BELIEVE IN SOMETHING
(11) can slow brain ageing, : slow ici suffisait comme verbe. Rajouter down (slow down) n’était pas faux mais insistait un peu plus sur le ralentissement …
(12) did wonders=> to DO wonders …
(13) to have a perspective ON something…
(14) J’avais volontairement inversé FOR (exprimant une durée) et SINCE (exprimant le point de départ d’une action).
(15) an in-house translator and an assistant : N’oubliez pas les articles indéfinis devant les occupations ou professions. Ici, les articles étaient placés devant des sons voyelles => AN.
(16) To be thankful TO someone/ to be grateful TO someone.

Certains points étaient un peu "piégeux"... Vous vous en êtres TRES BIEN SORTIS, bravo ...
Merci aussi aux trois volontaires pour la traduction dans le Follow-up Work. C'est agréable de se dire que le travail sera fait ... mais je vous rappelle que si certains autres "Correctors" ont envie de se lancer dans la traduction d'une partie, les doublons ne sont pas des problèmes pour moi ... Je corrigerai !

Bon courage pour les traductions .... et pour la série d'exercices suivante ! Le RYB63 vous attend ...

Hello!
Here's part II:

-'I gave my children the gift of a second language' The 44-year-old puts his successful career down to his language skills and the cultural awareness they bring. "Speaking a language helps to break the ice," he said. "Even if it's not perfect, it's a good introduction and brings people on-side when you're negotiating.
"My own two children are of course bilingual in French and English. "Now they have a lot of international friends and they're discovering the world through two sets of eyes. The gift of a second language is the best thing I can give them."
Being introduced to languages at a young age is something that teachers believe strongly in.
Among the benefits of learning a second language is the potential to "boost brain power", it was said.///END of PART 2///

'J'ai offert à mes enfants une seconde langue en cadeau'. A 44 ans, il met sa réussite professionnelle au service de ses compétences linguistiques et de la sensibilisation culturelle qu'elles procurent. "Parler une langue aide à briser la glace" dit-il. "Même si ce n'est pas parfait, c'est une bonne entrée en matière et ça met les gens à l'aise quand vous négociez."
"Mes deux propres enfants sont bien sûr bilingues français-anglais. Ils ont maintenant des amis internationaux et ils découvrent le monde à travers deux paires d'yeux. Le don d'une seconde langue est la meilleure chose que je puisse leur donner."
Etre initié aux langues dès le plus jeune âge est une chose à laquelle les enseignants croient fermement. Parmi les avantages de l'apprentissage d'une seconde langue, il y a la possibilité de renforcer l'intelligence" a-t-on dit.

Hello my dear Here4u!
Hi Everybody!

FINISHED.
Here is the translation for the last part of this text:

Studies have suggested that learning a second language can slow(11) brain ageing, and can lead to higher mental function in the brain. We have to think about what people need for their future."
"Learning two foreign languages also did wonders (12) for my English. It gave me a new perspective on (13) my own language and also gave me extra practice in identifying parts of speech, and later on, analysing literature."
Since studying(14) interpreting and translation, the woman has worked as an in-house translator and an assistant (15) language teacher (for English) in Japan.
"I now work as a freelance medical and marketing translator," she said. "Most of my work - about 80% - is in German. »
"I love my job and I'll always be thankful to (16) my language teachers at school who taught me how to learn."///END of the TEXT ///

Des études ont suggéré que l'apprentissage d'une seconde langue peut ralentir le vieillissement du cerveau, et peut amener le cerveau à une fonction mentale plus élevée. Nous devons réfléchir à ce dont les gens ont besoin pour leur avenir.
"Apprendre deux langues étrangères a également fait des merveilles pour mon anglais. Ça m'a donné une nouvelle perspective sur ma propre langue et m'a également donné une pratique supplémentaire en identifiant les différentes structures*1* de la parole, et plus tard, l'analyse de la littérature.
Depuis ses études, la femme a travaillé comme traductrice interne et assistante du professeur d'anglais *2* au Japon.
« Je travaille maintenant comme traductrice médicale et commerciale indépendante », a-t-elle dit. "La plupart de mon travail - environ 80% - se fait en allemand. »
J'aime mon travail et je serai toujours reconnaissante à mes professeurs de langues à l'école qui m'ont appris à apprendre.

*1* = les parties/parts de la parole : bof !
*2* = assistante du professeur de langue (pour l'anglais) = assistante du professeur d'anglais ?

Have a very sweet week, each of You!
See you soon.

Hello, dear workers...

Voici votre Follow-up-Work. Vous avez été très vite (trop vite pour moi ... ) pour me rendre ce travail .... et il est cependant TRES BON !

Quelques anglophones de langue maternelle expliquent combien faire l'effort d'apprendre une deuxième langue est important et comment cela a changé leur vie.

Cela a totalement changé ma vie." C'est PARFAIT, Magie ! BRAVO

* en l'occurence, l'allemand.
