Hello, Dearest Friends,
Here is number 100. It will be an "extra-ordinary" one... a different one, longer, as difficult, more varied. Do not forget that you may do what you fancy and leave out what you don't! It's a and the correction will be online on Monday, January 30th.

I) Translate into English:
1) Il y a un proverbe qui dit que la manière dont vous passez la Saint Sylvestre est la façon dont vous allez passer toute l'année.

2) Je ne parviens pas à prendre des résolutions de début d’année, parce que je n’arrive jamais à les tenir. C’est toujours la même histoire.

3) Tu n'avais pas envie de commencer cette année en étant amer et rancunier. Tu aurais pu régler cela à ta façon, mais tu veux toujours tout faire trop vite et voilà pourquoi tu échoues.

Maxwell 4)Tout ça pour dire qu'elle serait bien capable de me harceler pour que je ne le fasse pas !

Maxwell 5) Tu ne fais rien ce week-end ? Et si tu venais ? Tu verras comme les enfants ont grandi et comme j'ai retapé cette "vieille bicoque" comme tu disais. Allez, il n'y a pas de non qui tienne !

II) Write these acronyms in full letters and then translate these expressions, please. (Those in green can have several meanings!)

BAU- ER- PTO- NAACP- MRI- asap- MIA -MYA- RSPCA - DUI - POW - MMR- AFK- AWOL- YWCA- Y2K- AMEX- DNA- PET -ICU -

III) DAYP = DO AS YOU PLEASE:
Cet exercice sera "à volonté" ... Vous pourrez vous arrêter lorsque vous le désirerez ... Nous pouvons remercier Lucile pour ce texte (facile et amusant ) qu'elle m'a suggéré et qui remplace une version difficile (que je vous mets de côté pour une autre fois! ) Lucile n'est pas responsable des pièges que vous pourriez ressentir dans la partie remise en ordre ... J'assume totalement.
THE BARBECUE:
"It is the only cooking which a "true" man will make.
When a man goes volunteer to make this type of cooking, the chain of the following events is then :"

Hum hum.... Unfortunately, the "chain of events" has been mixed up=> You'll first have to find the right order of the events.
=> Then, if you choose to, you may translate this easy text ( or not!)
( Il s'agit d'un re-ordering : remettez les phrases dans l'ordre en les numérotant de 1. à 10. afin que l'histoire soit cohérente.
Une fois la logique du texte reconstituée, vous pouvez, ou non, choisir de le traduire en français.


. The woman returns outside to say to her husband that the meat is burning.
. The woman prepares the salad, the vegetables and the dessert.
. The woman prepares plates and brings them on the table.
. After the meal, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
. The man places the meat on the grill.
. The man asks the woman if she appreciated not to cook.
And in front of her annoyed air, he concludes that women are never satisfied.
. The woman prepares the meat for the cooking, the place on the tray with the necessary utensils and brings them to the man who is near the barbecue taking a beer.
. The woman is inside going to lay the table and verify the cooking of the vegetables.
. The woman goes to the grocer's.
. The man removes the meat off the grill and brings it to the woman.
Good Luck!

I nearly forgot to post an exercise...

IV) We're going to write a story together... I will start with the first two sentences and the following Lover of English will write a sequel to my sentences, whatever he or she wants, ( BUT NOT MORE THAN 20 WORDS). You can choose the tone, the type of the story, make it surrealistic, serious, funny, absurd, add characters, etc. You MUST follow what was given to you (correcting it if necessary,) and create from there... The story … and its ending will depend on each of you.

"Strolling in the mountains, I saw a dwarf wearing light green clothes. He was carrying skis on his right shoulder...(to be continued...)

V) Pairs in Rhyme: each of these pairs of words is a rhyme for a familiar phrase. Scratch your brains!
(Example: Car and ride => Answer: Far and wide.)

1) prods and bends: ------------------- 2) Draw and hoarder: -------------------- 3) Proud and sheer: -------------------

VI) Four-Fit: Without changing the order of the letters, place the 4-letter words on the dashes to form 8-letter words:
RUDE - LIAR - ACRE - RUIN.

M - N I - U - -
B - - Z Z - - D
E - - P T - O -
P E - S - A - -

I had lots of others... but I save them for N° 200! Have fun! and Good Luck!

Last, but not least, I want to thank you All, and CONGRATULATE you ALL on this N°100, for all the work you've given me and the constancy you've shown for all those weeks and months. You've been my incentive to go on in this sometimes tiring, often technically exasperating process., but which was always so rewarding humanely and linguistically speaking.
As excellent and terribly motivating Students, you've known how to trigger the desire to go on, respecting deadlines and letting me respect them because I knew quite a great number of you were champing at the bit... As my "laborious student" told you in N°99, YOU'RE GREAT! (I wish I could have bigger font here, but I can't ) Thanks a lot to all of you; you've given me really much!

QUITE FINISHED
Hello Here4U.
What an extraordinary one ! This one was no work at all, only pleasure ! Thanks a lot Lucile for your realistic story
I've found the 5th exercise so useful (we really have to know the idiomatic expression) and the 4th exercise so funny that I'd love to see them more often in the future !
Sorry to be the first one to post but I've been missing your exercises for too long and I couldn't wait to have fun with it !
Have a great fortnight !

I) Translate into English:
1) Il y a un proverbe qui dit que la manière dont vous passez la Saint Sylvestre est la façon dont vous allez passer toute l'année.

A proverb says you will spend the New Year the way you greet it.

2) Je ne parviens pas à prendre des résolutions de début d’année, parce que je n’arrive jamais à les tenir. C’est toujours la même histoire.
I cannot make New Year's resolutions because I cannot keep them. It's always the same old story.

3) Tu n'avais pas envie de commencer cette année en étant amer et rancunier. Tu aurais pu régler cela à ta façon, mais tu veux toujours tout faire trop vite et voilà pourquoi tu échoues.
You didn't want to start this New Year in a bitter and resentful mood. You could have sorted it out your way, but you always want to do everything too fast and that's why you have failed.

4)Tout ça pour dire qu'elle serait bien capable de me harceler pour que je ne le fasse pas !
The bottom line is that I wouldn't put it past her to pester me out of doing it !

5) Tu ne fais rien ce week-end ? Et si tu venais ? Tu verras comme les enfants ont grandi et comme j'ai retapé cette "vieille bicoque" comme tu disais. Allez, il n'y a pas de non qui tienne !
Are you doing anything special this weekend ? How about if you came to our house? You'll see how our children have grown and how I've done that "shack" up as you used to name it. Come on, I won't take no for an answer !

THE BARBECUE:
" It is the only cooking which a "true" man will make.
When a man goes volunteer to make this type of cooking, the chain of the following events is then :"

. The woman goes to the grocer's.
. The woman prepares plates and brings them on the table.
. The woman prepares the salad, the vegetables and the dessert.
. The woman prepares the meat for the cooking, the place on the tray with the necessary utensils and brings them to the man who is near the barbecue taking a beer.
. The man places the meat on the grill.
. The woman is inside going to lay the table and verify the cooking of the vegetables.
. The woman returns outside to say to her husband that the meat is burning.
. The man removes the meat off the grill and brings it to the woman."
. After the meal, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
. The man asks the woman if she appreciated not to cook.
And in front of her annoyed air, he concludes that women are never satisfied.

C'est la seule cuisine qu'un homme authentique est prêt à faire.
Quand un homme se porte volontaire pour faire ce type de cuisine, l'enchaînement des événements est alors :
- la femme va chez le marchand de fruits et légumes
- la femme prépare les assiettes et les apporte sur la table
- la femme prépare la salade, les légumes et le dessert
- la femme prépare la viande pour la cuisson, la place sur le plateau avec les ustensiles nécessaires et les apporte à l'homme qui est près du barbecue en train de boire une bière
- L'homme dépose la viande sur le gril
- La femme est à l'intérieur en train de dresser la table et de vérifier la cuisson des légumes
- la femme retourne dehors pour dire à son mari que la viande est en train de brûler
- l'homme retire la viande du gril et l'apporte à la femme
- Après le repas, la femme débarrasse la table et fait la vaisselle
- L'homme demande à la femme si elle a apprécié de ne pas cuisiner
- Et devant son air agacé, il en déduit que les femmes ne sont jamais contentes.

I think there's another genuine recipe that "true" men know how to cook : the turkey with whiskey

IV) write a sequel to my sentences :
"Strolling in the mountains, I saw a dwarf wearing light green clothes. He was carrying skis on his right shoulder.
Suddenly, one of his skis slipped down his back, tearing his ski suit. Anyone could see his underwear.

V) Pairs in Rhyme: each of these pairs of words is a rhyme for a familiar phrase. Scratch your brains!
(Example: Car and ride => Answer: Far and wide.)

1) prods and bends: pros and cons 2) Draw and hoarder: Law and order 3) Proud and sheer: Loud and clear

VI) Four-Fit: Without changing the order of the letters, place the 4-letter words on the dashes to form 8-letter words:

Hello Maxwell! Hello dear Friends,
You were really feeling withdrawal symptoms, weren't you? What a rush! you're killing me!
Glad to notice that men admit and appreciate Lucile's story... Does that mean that they're lazy and happy to be?
For the "acronyms" 5 ou 6 (may be right but) are not mine! Of course, there are several possibilities, but I'd like the most frequent ones!
I won't start correcting before 2 or 3 days ...
Oh! By the way: don't forget that if you notice/suspect some mistakes in the text we're writing together, you should indicate them in blue... before adding your words. (20 is a maximum, but you may add fewer is you feel like it!)

Hello !
un peu casse-têtes!

Attention! Il vous faut reprendre (et éventuellement corriger) la phrase de votre prédécesseur ET ne pas terminer votre histoire, mais laisser une porte ouverte pour que le suivant puisse rebondir !
Le premier (qui avait la tâche un peu plus facile que les suivants aura le devoir de trouver un moyen habile de trouver une fin dans la journée du 30 ! )

We have a saying: The way you spend New Year's Eve is the same way you'll spend the rest of the year.

I can't make any résolutions for the new year, because I'm not able to stick to it. It's the same old story.

You didn't feel like beginning this year being resentful and vindictive. You could have settled that in your own way, but you always want to do everything too fast so that's why you fail then.

You can choose the tone, the type of the story, make it surrealistic, serious, funny, absurd, add characters, etc. You MUST follow what was given to you (correcting it if necessary,) and create from there... The story … and its ending will depend on each of you.

"Strolling in the mountains, I saw a dwarf wearing light green clothes. He was carrying skis on his right shoulder...Suddenly, one of his skis slipped down his back, tearing his ski suit. Anyone could see his underwear. In a hurry he rushed behind a fir tree, but a squirrel was watching him… wondering how long the dwarf would stay there hidden!

Hello !
Donc, nouvelles explications :
Pour le N°4, il s'agit bien de FAIRE une seule histoire ensemble où il y aura autant de rajouts que de participants. C'est un "travail" de fantaisie, d'improvisation, d'imagination, de cohérence aussi ... et quand je le fais avec des élèves, de mémoire en plus, puisque rien n'est noté au début et chacun doit se souvenir de la phrase complète ... Nous l'écrivons à la fin !
Au théâtre, c'est pareil, sauf qu'en plus, il faut ajouter un geste, ce qui complique encore les choses (mais est bien plus drôle!)... En direct, c'est très amusant. Ici, on retire l'aspect spontanéité et je rajoute celui de la correction de la phrase (des phrases) donnée(s) précédemment ...
Taiji, si tu le souhaites, tu peux reposter cet exercice 4 en mettant ta phrase après celle d'ouvéa (ou du dernier qui aura posté lorsque tu reviendras sur le Forum) ! Fais comme tu le sens !
Bon courage à tous.

RAPPEL !L'ajout individuel maximal est de 20 mots !

Because It was very hungry but afraid of climbing into the fir where a wonderful fine cone could be a nice midday meal

Hello Here4u,

I – Into English
1 – As the saying goes, the way you got through the New Year’s Eve is the way you’ll get through the whole year
2 – I don’t make New Year’s resolutions because I can’t fulfill them. It’s always the same stuff
3 – You didn’t not want to start this year rancorous and ill-tempered. You could have settled that your way but you always want to do everything too quickly and that’s why you are failing
4 – Are you doing something this week-end ? Why don’t you come round and see us you’ll see how the children have grown and how I have done up this old place as you used to say. Come on, don’t fail me !

III – Le Barbecue
C’est la seule cuisine qu’un ‘vrai mec’ accepte de faire. Lorsqu’un un homme se porte volontaire pour faire ce genre de cuisine, voici comment les évènements vont se dérouler :
- La femme va à l’épicerie
- La femme prépare les assiettes et les pose sur la table
- La femme prépare la salade, les légumes et le dessert
- La femme prépare la viande à cuire et met sur le plateau tous les ustensiles nécessaires et les apporte à l’Homme qui, près du barbecue, boit une bière
- L’Homme met la viande sur le grill
- La femme rentre à l’intérieur pour mettre le couvert et vérifier la cuisson des légumes
- La femme ressort pour dire à son mari que la viande est en train de bruler
- L’Homme enlève la viande du grill et l’apporte à la femme
- L’Homme demande à la femme si elle a apprécié de ne pas avoir à faire la cuisine
- ..et devant son air ennuyé, il conclut que les femmes ne sont jamais contentes
- Après le repas, la femme débarrasse la table et fait la vaisselle…

- IV –
Strolling in the mountain, I saw a dwarf wearing light green clothes. He was carrying skis on his right shoulder which were green too because at springtime he was going to ski on the grass and he always used to match his skis with the colour of the ground

I hope everything is ok for you - Thank you for the exercise (

Strolling in the mountains, I saw a dwarf wearing light green clothes. He was carrying skis on his right shoulder…
Suddenly, one of his skis slipped down his back, tearing his ski suit. Anyone could see his underwear.
In a hurry he rushed behind a fir tree, but a squirrel was watching him wondering how long the dwarf would stay there hidden!
Because It was very hungry but afraid of climbing into the fir where a wonderful fine cone could be a nice midday meal
The dwarf saw the squirrel looking at the cone. He flung up one of his skis toward it.
The squirrel noticed it was rather dangerous to stay there, and it ran away, frightening a rabbit with the noise.The rabbit jumped over the ski and into the dwarf's arms, which made all the birds fly around.

Hello all of You!
It's sure that the later you post, the more difficult it is to find a suitable sequel to our story... It's also obvious that some of you are such fast workers that I was almost certain others of you would be tempted to "take a ticket!"
( we'd better take a ticket) Je sens quelque chose comme de la frustration, ici ... et suis sincèrement désolée ... MAIS, il serait souhaitable de ne pas bloquer le processus (au moins de l'exercice concerné) trop longtemps ...

Hello dear Joe, Hello all of You, dear Friends,

I've sent an mp to Alpiem to repeat the explanation and ask him to finish his N°4 immediately, (if not sooner) . Even if you post an exercise which is "not completed", you MUST finish n°4 as soon as you take a rank...
As I said from the beginning, the other members are expecting the latest part of the story to be able to go on... and if you don't write your 20 words (or fewer ...) you're jamming the whole process... If a Learner wants to post and can't, please, ignore the unfinished N°4 and take the last but one as the cue...
Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

QUI ???? QUI ???? WHO ... ?? sera le MILLIONNIEME utilisateur des tests que je vous propose ?

Ce sera pour aujourd'hui, c'est sûr, mais je ne sais pas si notre "Machine" et/ou notre Master est capable de le "single out"...
Si oui, je lui consacrerai un test spécial pour vous remercier tous !

Strolling in the mountains, I saw a dwarf wearing light green clothes. He was carrying skis on his right shoulder…
Suddenly, one of his skis slipped down his back, tearing his ski suit. Anyone could see his underwear.
In a hurry he rushed behind a fir tree, but a squirrel was watching him wondering how long the dwarf would stay there hidden!
Because It was very hungry but afraid of climbing into the fir where a wonderful fine cone could be a nice midday meal
The dwarf saw the squirrel looking at the cone. He flung up one of his skis towards it.The squirrel noticed it was rather dangerous to stay there, and it ran away, frightening a rabbit with the noise.The rabbit jumped over the ski and into the dwarf's arms, which made all the birds fly around.
The dwarf went back home with the rabbit into his arms thinking of the good 'lapin chasseur' he was going to cook for himself and his six brothers. Hardly had he arrived in the house that the rabbit jumped from his arms and went right away to Snow White who was cooking a dish of carrots ! :The rabbit,at the same time sped three times all the kitchen around and disappeared into a nearby cupboard at the top of a stack of dishes..(.If I were to finish the tale,as the last one, here is the fall)The dwarf sent a message to all the animals
in the forest to muster up in the dwelling of Snow White and the dwarfs in order to get the rabbit out of it, and the animals as well as dwarfs and Snow White alike took to dancing and singing, swearing one another eternal love and never ever eating"lapin chasseur"!!
