Hull/correction
Message de loupevivante posté le 17-09-2009 à 13:32:58

Hello,
Could you correct my text please?

Somewhere on the earth, on a continent called Europe, is a place where nature gets along well with industries, where coffee doesn't represent a miraculous drink anymore, where the sun, unfortunately, doesn't seem to want to be there. That part of the world, which saw the evolution of the famous and immortal Beatles band, doesn't blow its own trumpet in spite of the rich and diversified history that it hides like a treasure showed little by little thanks to the castles and the publics gardens. Hid through all these attractions that represents United Kingdom, that geographical concept that includes England, Wale, Scotland and Northern Ireland, is a town that the present doesn't know a lot about but that the future will make popular for sure: Kingston-Upon-Hull.3
In the middle of those green lands covered by trees through which meander roads and rivers, was established, in 1279, a little town. In spite of the natural resources presented around them, which could have been use to develop some industries, the inhabitants of that place based their city on trade. So, it was as a market town that Hull was first knew. Effectively, its business, at that time, rose again the importing wool from monasteries activity. Because of the love he had for that welcoming and lively (busy) place, which was growing up as quickly as its trade activities did, the King Edward I decided to buy the town a few years after its foundation, in 1293, and renamed it "Kynges Town Upon Hull". As life works for century and century, time went by and the popularity of that locality follows the same path as the children development. This is to say that the local port activity, which included fishing and whaling, and markets bringing in textiles contributed to the Hull's fame increase. After those glory times, that town's population went to hell and back: the half of those inhabitants, which worked hard to contribute to the evolution of their society, died in 1349 because of the Black Death and the Plague. Even though, thanks to the strong and collective spirit of those people, Hull took the horn by the bills and reached it most prosperous period, with about 350 000 residents, just before the First World War. But, after every sun light always come some big black clouds. It was exactly what happened during the Second World War when 95% of the town was destroyed because of the bombs attacks. Still today, the rebuilding effort is not done yet! However, it represents the tip the iceberg in comparison with the social problems which were going to follow the war. An example of that is that the fishing industry completely collapsed in the 1970's. All those difficulties led to the nomination of Hull as the winner of the "Crap town" competition in 2003.
Effectively, that city, which represents today the living place of more than 280 000 people, doesn't have a shiny reputation. In spite of the efforts of the authorities which put their shoulder to the wheel for years to change the situation, Hull stays in a bad position, what affects negatively its economy, education and health systems. The fact that 20 % of the children aged around eleven are illiteracy illustrates the actual situation. The accent which characterizes that town may represent, with the several socials problems like drugs habits and unemployment, one cause of the _______ that happens these days.
However, instead of the Hull’s high rate of life, that city is overflowing with sport teams and tourism attractions with two rugby teams, the Humber Bridge and the Maritime Museum. For the time being takes place the regeneration of that locality which introduced the construction of a new stadium of 55 000 places, the development of the city centre and resolution of the tides problem. All these improvements show the government’s willpower to turn the tables!
In the middle of that hubbub, sometimes negative sometimes reformer and visionary, life continues and leads the Hulltonians through its different steps. Then, the natural wheel never stops to turn to see to it that birth and death live together day after day. Some of those new inhabitants have become famous because of what they were or of what they did. William Wilberforce, the leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade in Britain, is one of them like Amy Johnson, who completed the first solo flight from London to Darwin (Australia) in May 1930 before she died in 1941 while she was working as a pilot in the air force. This list can continue even more longer than that with Philip Larkin, this dark vision poems writer, and some musicians such as Fatboy Slim, the Beautiful South and Everything But the Girl.
To sum up, between a football game and a Queen’s declaration, going through some social troubles and famous destiny people, was this dynamic city where everybody is ready to bite the bullet whatever happens to improve their situation: Kingston-Upon-Hull. Definitively, this town, after some hard past times, will soon break the mould and its slogan: “It’s Nerver Dull in ‘Ull”, will come true! So, pay attention to that part of the world because London may not stay the capital for a long time!

Somewhere on the earth , on a continent called Europe, is a place where nature gets along well with industries, where coffee doesn't represent a miraculous drink anymore, where the sun, unfortunately, doesn't seem to want to be there( cette structure est un peu trop complexe).

Hidden through all these facts which characterise the United Kingdom, is a town that the present doesn't know a lot about but that the future will make popular for sure: Kingston-Upon-Hull.

In the middle of those green lands, was established, in 1279, a small town. First known as a market town, Hull’s business rose again importing wool from monastic industries. Because of the love he felt for that welcoming place, Kind Edward I decided, in 1293, to buy the town and renamed it "Kynges Town Upon Hull". Then, thanks to the local port activity and the markets bringing in textiles, that locality gained in popularity. Nevertheless, after those glory times, that town's population went to hell and back: half of those inhabitants died in 1349 because of the Black Death and the Plague. Even though, Hull took the bull by the horns and reached its most prosperous period, by now with a population of about 350,000 citizens, just prior to the First World War.

The accent which characterises this town may represent, with its social troubles, some of the causes of the exodus that is happening today.

However, in spite of these Hull's hard nuts to crack, the city is overflowing with sport teams and tourism attractions. For the time being, the regeneration of Hull that is taking place boasts a new stadium seating 55,000, the development of the city centre and the resolution of the tidal problem.
Intermingled through that hubbub, some of those Hulltonians have seen their destiny taking part of the history. William Wilberforce, the leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade in Britain, is one of them like Amy Johnson, who completed the first solo flight from London to Darwin (Australia) in May 1930. This list can go on even longer than that with Phillip Larkin, the dark visions poet, and some musicians such as Fatboy Slim.

Good morning Mrs. Wolf

I hope I'm not too late - but I fear so.

L.2. Hidden among all these ...
L.4. Due to the importation of wool from monastic industries, Hull was put on the map as an important trading town. King Ed 1 decided to buy the town in 1293 because of his love for it and named it "Kynges Town Upon Hull". Later on, its popularity grew thanks to ........... Unfortunately, Hull plunged and the town's population went to hell and back due to the Great Plague in 1349 where half its inhabitants died. But Hull took the bull by the horns and just prior to the First World War with 350,000 citizens, Hull reached its most prosperous period only to be devasted once again with the onset of the Second World War with 95% of the town destroyed by the Blitz.

3° paragraph: social problems
4° paragraph: However, in spite of this, Hull is a hard nut to crack. The city overflows with numerous sports teams and toutist atractions.....
