Hello, dear workers!

Here is the new topic we'd like to read about...
You remember I had asked you to suggest topics... You did! Wonderfully! and I thank you for it.
Here, today, is another one of the subjects you've suggested... I hope you'll feel like writing about it. Do not refrain from doing so for fear you might make mistakes... We LOVE mistakes, because they give us an opportunity to explain and correct!
and... You may still suggest ideas for future topics...

Here is today's topic:

"What is interesting to see or do in your city or country?" (between 130 and 150 words)
(You don't have to tell us the truth... You may invent whatever dream place you fancy.)

Voici le rappel des modalités de la première partie de l'exercice :
1. Je vous demande une EXPRESSION sur le sujet proposé à m’envoyer en mp dès que possible
2. Le plus tôt possible, cette première expression sera publiée sur le Forum, et CHACUN sera 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), à ce moment, 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 ou I trust You!

Hello dear writers and proofreaders,

Two EXPRESSIONS have arrived already! and I hope others will follow... Here's the first one. Please, help its author!

EXPRESSION N°1:

I live in Orléans, a pretty town on the banks of the river Loire, in the centre north of France.
Joan of Arc having liberated the city from the English in 1429, tourists can discover a very interesting and medieval tour and even attend the famous annual festival, every 8th of May.
But, in spite of my age, I have remained sporty and I prefer the long walks along this majestic but often impredictable river in winter and spring.
With my husband, we often get on our bicycles to ride along "the Loire à vélo" tour. After these physical efforts , you can of course have a picnic in a wilderness place or in a landscaped area; but we have a soft spot for the small typical restaurants where you can still enjoy a Loire fish fry accompanied by new vegetables grown in the valley.
So , then, when are you coming to visit my area? 152 WORDS

Please, help the writer! Indicate possible mistakes in blue, and underline what you think is clumsy...

Hello!
EXPRESSION N°1:

I live in Orléans, a pretty town on the banks of the river Loire, in north-central France.
As Joan of Arc liberated the city from the English in 1429, tourists can discover a very interesting and medieval tour and even attend the famous annual festival, every 8th of May.
Personally(1), I prefer long walks along this majestic but often impredictable river in winter and spring: in spite of my age, I have remained sporty!
With my husband, we often get on our bicycles to ride along the "Loire à vélo" tour. After these physical efforts, you can of course have a picnic in a wilderness place or in a landscaped area; but we have a soft spot for the small typical restaurants where we can still enjoy fried fish from the Loire, accompanied by new vegetables grown in the valley.
So then, when are you coming to visit my area? 152 WORDS

(1) But ne me semblait pas le meilleur mot de liaison ici (d'autant qu'il est réutilisé juste après, à bon escient cette fois)
Je pense qu'il est utile d'amorcer le 2e paragraphe (où l'auteur parle de ses goûts personnels) avec Personally, pour marquer une rupture avec le paragraphe précédent qui retrace l'histoire de la ville. => J'ai un peu réorganisé la phrase sans changer le sens.

Hello, dears,

Here is EXPRESSION N°2! We need your help to indicate the possible mistakes and underline what you think is clumsy...

I tell you about a city where I lived for 15 years.
It is located one hundred and fifty km North East of Paris. It is an ancient Gallo- Roman city where we can still see some remains, as a large arch and a forum.
Its Cathedral is known as being one of the five most beautiful of France. For centuries
the France kings' coronation took place in it. In particular Charles VII accompanied by Jeanne D'Arc
Every year during the first week of May a parade with people dressed as in 15th century reminds us of this event.
The St Remi Basilique is another famous monument, The bishop Remi christed Clovis the first king of Francs here.
The Marne-Rhine canal runs through the city. We fish for roaches and bleachers which were delicious cook and eat like fries. Walking along this canal, we can also see housboats.
This is a cultural university city with many young people and fun-filled.
And the best bit... it is the champagne! since we are in Reims. 150 mots

Thanks a lot for your help! I give you THE FORCE!

Hello bonjour ; j ai repris la correction de Maxwell qui est excellente, j' essaie d' expliquer à ma façon ce qui n 'était pas clair

Today I am telling you about a city where I lived for 15 years.
It is located one hundred and fifty kilometres North East of Paris. It is an ancient Gallo-Roman city where we can still see some remains, as a large arch and a forum.
Its Cathedral is known for being one of the five most beautiful of France. For centuries, the coronation of the Kings of France took place in it, in particular, that of Charles VII accompanied by Joan of Arc.
Every year during the first week of May, a parade with people dressed like in the 15th century reminds us of this event.
The Basilica of Saint-Remi is another well known monument worth seeing. As you know, the bishop Remi christened Clovis, the first King of the Franks in this city.
But that's not all! The Marne-Rhine canal runs through the city. There, we can fish for roaches and bleachers which are delicious to cook and eat
in the same way as French fries. Walking along this canal, we can also see narrowboats sailing .
This is a cultural university city populated by many young people and with a lot of entertainment .
And the best part is... its champagne, since we are talking about Reims! 150 mots

As I have another EXPRESSION waiting in line, you'll only be given 24 hours for your indications in blue! (Sorry!) It should be enough, but you'll have "a little work" to make this EXPRESSION perfect... Think "fast" and hard! Green allowed tomorrow at noon.

EXPRESSION N°3 : Please, indicate the possible mistakes in blue, and underline what you think is clumsy...

The city where I live isn’t my « dream city »… Yes, it has a History, a lot of History … but it is noisy, dirty, and not very friendly… Of course i can leave it and go anywhere else… but I don’t want to. My friends and my all family are here with me and we laugh a lot. I have my habits , favourtite restaurants where we eat well and cheap. I know all the streets by heart, big shops and little pittoresque streets where I can find what I want to buy or do. I have my clubs and groups. I have been to school in that same city and have not been feeling like leaving. Many wouldn’t like my city.
It’s quite hot here, the habitants have my accent and many people don’t like us, because we are chauvinistic and a little arrogant, people say we have a bad temper. I live in Marseille. 156

Hello dears!

Here is EXPRESSION N°4: please, help us to improve it - if possible - indicating mistakes in blue and underlining what you think is clumsy. Green will be allowed tomorrow evening.


You can't go to Mantes la Jolie without visiting the Collegiate church Notre-Dame. It is one of the top three churches of Ile-de-France by its size and its seniority.
Built from 1150 to 1350, it reflected the power of the Capetian against the Norman Dukes: this rivalry explains the construction of a building of such imposing dimensions.

The Collegiate Church has been a listed historical monument since 1840.
This jewel of Gothic architecture is often referred to as the "little sister" of Notre-Dame de Paris because of its resemblance and its proximity to the Seine.

You'll be impressed by its cathedral-like dimensions: the total length is about 68 meters and the total height of the towers is 61 meters. The 30-meter high nave is on three levels and is lit by a beautiful set of stained-glass windows.
The western facade is pierced by three richly decorated portals crowned by two towers. The magnificent large rose window is one of the oldest in France; the main entrance of the Collegiate Church is considered a masterpiece of western sculpture.

Last but not least, its marvelous organ was built in 1897 by Joseph Merklin. It is one of the four symphonic organs of this period still in use in the world. No wonder this organ was classified as a historical monument in 2016!

You can't go to Mantes la Jolie[ Sorry, I did go there, but didn't visit the Church! ] without visiting the Collegiate church Notre-Dame.* It is one of the top three churches of Ile-de-France by its size and its seniority.

The Collegiate Church has been a listed historical monument since 1840.
This jewel of Gothic architecture is often referred to as the "little sister" of Notre-Dame de Paris because of its resemblance and its proximity to the Seine.
You'll be impressed by its cathedral-like dimensions: the total length is about 68 meters and the total height of the towers is 61 meters. The 30-meter high nave is on three levels and is lit by a beautiful set of stained-glass windows.
The western facade is pierced by three richly decorated portals crowned by two towers. The magnificent large rose window is one of the oldest xxxx in France; the main entrance of the Collegiate Church is considered a masterpiece of western sculpture.

nothing to say about this text; but apart from the Collegiate, what is worth doing and seeing at Mantes la Jolie?


Well! Obviously, you have worked a lot... Your corrections are now highly relevant. and I congratulate you, but I don't have much to add...

I have got used to "indicating" mistakes and what's clumsy in the initial production, and to doing the same with the different texts you have suggested as you were progressing... I do the complementary research at the beginning too and just have to open myself to your suggestions when your work is done.
Yet, this correction has taken me the whole afternoon and I'll have to find ideas to make up for the site's technical particularities. I'll ask Master (Laurent) for help to extend my number of words... (again!)
I hope the different "versions" of the same text don't make things too difficult for you. If they do and if you have good ideas , please, do not hesitate to suggest them!

When reading, I'm sure you'll have objections and/ or questions, as usual. You know that you can always ask them, and that before that, you may do the Follow up Work. You don't have to rewrite the whole texts if it's not necessary. Only do the passages and/ or the sentences you're not sure of, indicating the number of the EXPRESSION clearly, please.

Thanks again for everything! You're GREAT!

After these physical efforts (2), you can of course have a picnic in a wild place or in a landscaped area; but we have a soft spot for the small typical restaurants where you can still enjoy fried fish (3) from the Loire accompanied by new vegetables grown in the valley.

Quand je lis les explications de Here4u sur le débat "fish fry" et"fried fish" je précise que la célèbre friture de Loire est constituée de petits poissons différents(ablettes, gardons, goujeons...) passés ensemble dans l'huile de friture; délicieux mais de plus en plus rare!
