Bonjour ou bonsoir
Pourriez-vous m'apporter votre aide afin de corriger mes réponses s'il vous plaît ? Par ailleurs, pourriez-vous m'expliquer certaines fautes si elles reviennent souvent (je pense qu'il y en a beaucoup, malheureusement...).

- The author is the main character in this extract. He is Indian and he was seventeen when he went to Eton, an elite public school in England. He was close to Shanti and Henny who are respectively his uncle and his aunty because of lived in England like him. However, we didn't know where his parents are but we can imagine that they stayed in his homeland. Mr McCrum was protector and friendly with the narrator probably due to the fact that he is not like the others students.

- A boarder is a student who live in school all of the time.

- Moreover, we can feel the greatness of Eton which emanates from the photograph. Indeed, the dining hall is richly decorated, notably with carpets, paintings, glasswork and woodwork.

- Thanks to a scholarship, the narrator, at the age of seventeen, left India for a prestigious England school. Furthermore, in Eton, students have to respected a lot of social codes like, for example, eating each plate with his implement or else, not eating the apple where the shrimps are served. In fact, the major part of Eton students belong to the high society, accustomed to the etiquette.

- It is necessary to have studied an European language to 0-level standard in order to go to Oxford.

- Mr McCrum was the housemaster of the group of students whom the narrator belonged. Consequently, he was quite close to them especially to him, probably due to his Indian's origin and he help him to feel better in this new environment. In addition, Mr McCrum encouraged the author to pursue higher education in prestigious faculties.

- "This is what life was sometimes about" probably means that as clever and gifted as you are, England famous universities are reserved for the elite.

- At the beginning, the author seems to be impressed by school architecture. Afterwards, he appears to surprised by behavior of students ans masters. Indeed, they were especially welcoming to him. However, the narrator disgraces himself due to the fact that he had been eating an apple which served as receptacle. Although, he feels better thanks to the help of the housemaster who took the drama out with humor. After that, the author is disappointed and jaded by the English system because of that it is necessary to have studied an European language to be accepted in prestigious universities.

- The narrator is Indian, consequently, he comes from a former colony of United Kingdom. Despite the fact that they speak the same language, cultures are distinct between an Indian and an English. In addition, the author was confronted with the upper class and their rules of propriety not to mention the fact that he is disadvantaged by the admission system of the major universities of the country.
As well as, he is a foreigner whether it is geographically, or else, socially.

Here... left India for a specific prestigious England school....I was thinking this prestigious school, since you have just given its name.

...or not eating I was thinking an, but after reading about his humiliation below, perhaps it is one specific apple after all, and you should keep 'the' apple where the shrimp are served.

"This is what life was sometimes about" probably means that as clever and gifted as you are, England (use the possessive noun here) famous universities are reserved for the elite.

Afterwards, he appears to being surprised...(use the infinitive)

Bonjour,

erreurs en bleu, corrections en vert.
Une recherche sur group who ou group which donne:

Using who, that and which are all grammatical.
As for which version is preferred: a Google News search for "group that" yields 3 millions hits. "Group which," 1.5 million. And "group who," 125,000.
So writers clearly prefer that and which for group. That makes sense: I think that most speakers conceptualize group as a singular nonhuman entity even if that group is made up of humans.

- Moreover, we can feel the greatness of Eton which emanates from the photograph. Indeed, the dining hall is richly decorated, notably with carpets, paintings, glasswork and woodwork.

- Thanks to a scholarship, the narrator, at the age of seventeen, left India for Eton, a prestigious England school. However, at Eton, students have to respect a lot of social codes as shown in the text, eating each dish with his implement or, not eating the apple where the shrimp are served. In fact, the majority of Eton students belong to high society, and are accustomed to etiquette.

- It is necessary to have studied a European language to the 0-level standard in order to go to Oxford.

- Mr McCrum was the housemaster of the group of students to which the narrator belonged. Consequently, he was quite warm to him probably due to his Indian origin, therefore, he helped him to feel better in this new environment. In addition, Mr McCrum encouraged the author to pursue higher education at prestigious faculties.

- "This is what life was sometimes about" probably means that however clever and gifted you may be, English famous universities are reserved to the elite.

- At the beginning, the author seems to be impressed by the school's architecture. Afterwards, he appears to be surprised by the behavior of students and masters. Indeed, they were especially welcoming to him. However, the narrator disgraced himself because he ate an apple which was meant to serve as a receptacle. Thanks to the help of the housemaster, he felt better when he played down the situation with humor. After that, the author is disappointed and jaded by the English system because it is necessary to have studied a European language to be accepted at prestigious universities.

- The narrator is Indian, consequently, he comes from a former colony of the United Kingdom. Although they speak the same language, their cultures and customs are diametrically opposed. In addition, the author was confronted with the upper class and their rules of propriety, not to mention the fact that unlike European students, he is at a grave disadvantage, concerning integration in the major universities of the country.
Despite the fact that he had won a significant scholarship, the author wasn't on equal footing unlike what he had thought when he had been accepted at Eton.
