Rack your brains and help! /64
Message de here4u posté le 12-02-2020 à 21:35:02 (S | E | F)
Hello, Dear Friends,

Voici la nouvelle édition du travail de "My Poor Student", who's trying so hard... Avec l'actualité du moment, il a bien du mal à trouver des sujets "originaux" mais pas trop catastrophiques, sinon "amusants" ... Aujourd'hui, il a eu envie de donner une toute petite lueur d'espoir quand tout semble bien difficile ...

Cet exercice est un et sa correction sera en ligne le mercredi 26 février.

PLEASE, HELP MY STUDENT... He has left 20 mistakes in this text...(he has excuses, the text is quite long...)
(The 20 mistakes must be corrected IN CAPITAL LETTERS, please! )

Prema and her husband had worked in a brick kiln, winning just enough to scrape a living together for their young family. But they had hoped for more. Her husband took off a loan to start his own brick kiln, but the plans failed to take up. In a moment of desperation last year, he killed himself.
The pressure fell solely on Prema not only to earn enough to feed, clothe and house herself and her three children, but also to pay back the money they owned for the failed business venture. And for a while she managed, taking her two youngest to work with her."When I go to work I get 200 rupees ($2.80) per day, which is enough to run our family," But she became ill, which meant she couldn't earn as much. She was sick for three months - by the end of when the bills had mounted, and the cupboards had run naked. "My seven years old son started crying due to anger." Prema had no property, jewellery, valuables or kitchen ustensils that could be exchanged for cash. "I didn't even have a 10 rupee note [$0.14; £0.11] with me" Then she realised she did have anything she could sell after all. ///END of PART 1 /// "I remembered a shop which used to buy hair," Prema says, thinking immediately of her own hair. India is one of the world top exporters of human hair, which is sold around the globe to make extensions. "I went there and sold my entire head of hair at 150 rupees ($2; £1.50) The respite was only temporary: Prema knew she was out of options, and her thoughts began to turn towards more drastic measures. She decided to find a way of taking her own life. She was saved by her sister, who happened to come by on time to stop her. And then, just few days later, the help she so desesperately needed appeared out of the blue.
Bala Murugan heard about Prema's situation. It immediately stroke a nerve: her struggle reminded him of his family's darkest hour: at the age of 10, his family ran out of food. In a state of utter despair, Bala's mother decided to kill herself and her children. She changed her mind at the last moment: the family rushed their mother to a doctor, and she was saved. ///END of PART 2 /// Bala now lives a life a world around from the situation he grew up. After years of struggle, he worked his way out of poverty and now owns a computer graphics centre. He gave Prema some money to buy food, then wrote about the family on social media. "Within a day I got 120,000 rupees ($1,670)." At Prema's request, the fundraising was stopped. "She said she would get back to her work and pay the rest," Prema is slowly getting back on her feet, but, sadly, her financial situation is far from unique. In spite of India's economic growth, millions like her struggle to put food on the table. Prema has another obstacle in her way: she cannot read nor write, like tens of millions of other Indians. As a result, she is unaware of government schemes which provide help to people like her. But thanks to her community and to Bala, she is able to see a way out of the cycle of poverty which has kept her trapped. "Now I realise suicide was the wrong decision," she says. "I am confident about paying back the rest of the loan."/// END of the TEXT ///.


Thanks a lot for your help ... Of course, THE FORCE IS WITH you!

Thank you for the HELP you've given my Student…

Vous avez, dans l’ensemble, bien trouvé les « fautes » oubliées … Vous avez reconnu les « grands classiques » (adjectif composé/ temps du passé/ comparatifs vs superlatifs/ …) Vous devez encore faire très attention aux particules adverbiales (leur choix, leur place), et aux prépositions que vous avez encore tendance à mélanger …

She was sick for three months - by the end of which (5) the bills had mounted, and the cupboards had run bare.(6) "My seven-year-old son (7) started crying due to hunger (8)." Prema had no property, jewellery, valuables or kitchen utensils (9) that could be exchanged for cash.

It might not sound like a lot - "I got three packs of cooked rice, each costing 20 rupees, for my three children," she says. But the respite was only temporary: Prema knew she was out of options, and her thoughts began to turn towards more drastic measures. She decided to find a way of taking her own life.

Bala Murugan heard about Prema's situation. It immediately struck (16) a nerve: her struggle reminded him of his family's darkest hour: at the age of 10, his family ran out of food.

Prema is slowly getting back on her feet, but, sadly, her financial situation is far from unique. In spite of India's economic growth, millions like her struggle to put food on the table. Prema has another obstacle in her way: she cannot read or write (20), like tens of millions of other Indians. As a result, she is unaware of government’S schemes which provide help to people like her. But thanks to her community and to Bala, she is able to see a way out of the cycle of poverty which has kept her trapped. "Now I realise suicide was the wrong decision," she says. "I am confident about paying back the rest of the loan." /// END of the TEXT ///.


D’abord, une expression qui vous a gênés : to kill oneself/ to take one’s life/ to commit suicide; les trois expressions employées dans le texte étaient justes ; donc, il ne faut pas corriger l’une par l’autre sauf si le contexte (psychologique, ou un jugement "moral" par exemple) l’exige.
(1) To MAKE money= to EARN money, c’est-à-dire « gagner de l’argent » au sens de mériter son argent. To WIN signifie aussi gagner, mais par hasard, un jeu ou une loterie , par exemple.
(2) To take out a loan= prendre, contracter un emprunt.
(3) To take off= décoller dans tous les sens du terme.
(4) TO OWE money= devoir de l’argent, au sens d’avoir des dettes ; «IOU= I owe you» est une « reconnaissance de dette ».
(5) for three months - by the end of which= by the end of the three months.
(6) To run bare= to be empty; bare= naked= without any clothes on. The cupboards had run bare= were empty of any stored groceries.
(7) My seven-year-old son= le nom «year» est en position d’adjectif et reste donc invariable.
(8) to cry of hunger. Le petit garçon avait très faim. Il pourrait aussi être en colère, mais son problème est différent ici. Hunger /// Anger
(9) a utensil: attention au calque de l’orthographe par rapport au français (pas de –s).
(10) she did have something= elle avait quelque chose. Anything = n’importe quoi.
(11) the world's top exporters: le cas possessif était nécessaire.
(12) to sell for money= vendre pour la somme de …
(13) to come by= passer par hasard ; Lien internet
Difference between «in time» and «on time» : Lien internet

(14) just a few days later= quelques jours plus tard // just few days later= peu/ trop peu de jours après.
(15) desperate/ desperately
(16) It immediately struck: to strike, I struck, struck. Ne pas confondre avec to stroke= caresser.
(17) a world away= far from
(18) from the situation he grew up in. Rejet de la particule adverbiale en fin de proposition (ou après le verbe).
(19) After years of struggle, he has worked his way out of poverty= present perfect de bilan d’action.
(20) she cannot read or write= BON ! (et la correction est minimale … ça fait « plaisir à mon élève ! » Inutile donc de changer la stucture en retirant la négation du groupe verbal : she can neither read nor write. Ce n’est pas meilleur (sauf dans le cadre d’un potentiel exercice sur «neither…nor» !) que l’original …

Revenons au « Follow-up work ! J’ai mes volontaires pour les traductions (MERCI ! ) Si d’autres volontaires veulent aussi « s’y coller », n’hésitez pas : je corrigerai sur Forum. Vous avez le temps …
Merci à tous et BRAVO pour votre excellent travail.

La précipita chez un médecin… Le mot "précipiter" donne une image vraiment négative à la scène décrite, comme si elle tombait dans le néant. J'espère être restée fidèle à ce texte bouleversant, car il renvoie à l'histoire de très nombreuses familles.

Have a very very sweet Week!
See you soon.

Hello, Dear Friends!

Voici le début de la correction du Follow-up work... Anyone can step in for any part...

Prema and her husband had worked in a brick kiln, making just enough to scrape a living together for their young family. But they had hoped for more. Her husband took out a loan to start his own brick kiln, but the plans failed to take off. In a moment of desperation last year, he killed himself.

"I didn't even have a 10 rupee note [$0.14; £0.11] with me" Then she realised she did have something she could sell after all."

Prema et son mari avaient travaillé dans * une fabrique de briques gagnant juste assez pour joindre les deux bouts pour leur jeune famille. Mais ils avaient espéré mieux. Son mari avait pris un emprunt pour démarrer son propre four à briques mais l'affaire n'avait pas décollé. Dans un moment de désespoir l'année dernière, il s'est suicidé.
La pression retombait uniquement sur Prema non seulement pour gagner suffisamment afin se de nourrir, se vêtir et se loger avec ses trois enfants, mais aussi pour rembourser l'argent qu'ils devaient à cause de l'échec de leur jeune entreprise. Pendant un temps, elle s'en est sortie en emmenant ses deux plus jeunes enfants au travail avec elle. "Quand je vais travailler je gagne 200 roupies (2,80 dollars) par jour, ce qui est suffisant pour entretenir la famille." Mais elle tomba malade, ce qui signifiait qu'elle ne pouvait plus gagner autant.
