    C'est en pratiquant, encore et souvent, que les progrès viendront ! N'hésitez donc pas à participer, pour la correction des expressions de vos co-workers, comme pour l'écriture de votre propre expression si vous le désirez ...

    Hello!
    Anyone to deal with the Olympic Games and the Olympic Spirit??? 🥇 🥇

    Hello, dear workers (writers or correctors)!

    Here is the first work I've received... Its author wrote more words than required and sent a second "abridged" version. I've chosen to publish the longer one as both contain very few "mistakes" and are quite easy to read.

    EXPRESSION N°1:

    I only watched very short parts of very few events. I wasn't waiting for these events, I just watched them when I could. I'm not boycotting anything (there's hardly anything political in any of my choices), I'm just saying I'm running out of time and I have to make choices.
    I used to be thrilled watching figure skating at the Olympics in the 90s. I didn't miss a moment of it. Those were the great days of figure skating. Unfortunately, after the 2002 scandal, the scoring system was changed: skaters now focus on technique rather than artistry to earn many more points. Programs have become standardised, with many extremely difficult technical elements. Yet, the artistic notation no longer values the emotion that a choreography in perfect harmony with the music creates. As a result, programs no longer tell a story: you could change the music, you wouldn't see the difference. Now, you can't earn a medal without performing many quadruple jumps even in the ladies event, no matter how dull your program is...
    Of course, there are a few exceptions, but I much prefer reviewing past competitions... The emotion is intact... (199W)

    Please indicate possible mistakes in blue and underline what you think is clumsy.

    EXPRESSION N°2: please, indicate possible mistakes in blue and underline what is clumsy.

    I have partially watched the Olympic Games. I was flabberdasted! These athletes show a breathtaking dexterity that we admire without ever dreaming of reaching this insane level a day. In addition, what outstanding bravery !... whent they got involved in very risky, scabrous performance ...Four us simple spectators, they don't seem to fear danger, which is obvious for us as well as .accidents that may happend and cause disabling injuries. For them only one goal : they want to win and nothing holds them back

    Hello!
    EXPRESSION N°2

    I watched part of the Olympic Games. I was flabbergasted! These athletes show a breathtaking dexterity that we admire without ever dreaming of reaching this insane level someday. In addition, what outstanding bravery when they got involved in very risky scabrous performance! These champions don't seem to fear danger, whereas we, spectators, clearly feel the risk of accident that may happen and cause disabling injuries. Victory is their only goal and nothing holds them back.
    In spite of a great interest for these Olympic Games, I didn't follow the competitions all the time. As everybody can imagine, from time to time, other occupations have prevented me from doing so. I had to go about my business, household problems, entertainment, sports club and the inevitable medical appointments. 137

    effectivement, certaines erreurs m'avaient échappé...

    Hello, dear workers and readers,

    I know that some of you refuse to suggest improvements for their co-workers... That's a pity...
    It's part (the main part! ) of the work... )

    There's only little interest to be given "a solution" directly, skipping the steps of reflection and "discussion"... The interest is mainly to follow a mental process and lead everyone to look for and find "the right" expression of words in the author's mind... (or suggest different "solutions" if there are several possible interpretations...)
    This is necessarily long... and is all the more interesting as there are several minds in action...

    A little frustrated, I will consider EXPRESSION N°2 ready for final suggestions and explanations.

    Here is now EXPRESSION N°3 for you to work on:

    - Have you watched the «Beijing Olympic Games»? Why or why not? (130-150 words)
    I do not as a rule watch Olympic Games, not even on TV. Being so hopeless in sports, I find myself unaware of the rules on which everybody passionately debate and I do find it tedious to see the same exercises repeated over and over again by 10 athletes in a row. Let's say I miss the magics of it all!
    One thing I do watch, though, is the opening ceremony. Every country is at their utmost to ensure a wonderful show with fireworks, electronic images, aerial views and it comes to something really grand. But what I like best is the introduction of the national delegations, all dresses in traditional clothes, athletes of all disciplines gathered together and sometimes carrying a message for the world. I always discover with amazement tiny - and bigger - countries with improbable names and costumes and I really love this! (147)

    a lot! Please, Rack your Brains and indicate possible mistakes in blue and underline what, in your opinion, is clumsy.

    EXPRESSION N°4:

    The television has made us to forget that the athletes who were present in Beijing lived in a bubble because of the pandemic. I have watched above all the figure skating. I find that both exciting and thrilling. Really, I’ve practiced a little skating when young and know how it is difficult. When I look, I imagine myself with a partner dancing on my favourite music with lighting effects. But every time they do a flip or axel jump or spin, I tremble of fear because I dread a fall and I’m relived when everything is allright.
    More, I don’t like the idea that people fighting for their country and proud for their country. I think sportmen and women should fight for sport and for the general brotherhood. 128

    Hello dear writers and readers!

    for your good work! and your perseverance.
    Here are our final suggestions...

    EXPRESSION N°1:

    I only watched very short parts of very few events. I wasn't waiting for these events, I just watched them when I could. I'm not boycotting anything (there's hardly anything political in any of my choices)TB , I'm just saying I'm running out of time and I have to make choices.

Unfortunately, after the 2002 scandal, the scoring system was changed: skaters now focus on technique rather than artistry to earn many more points. Programs have become standardised, with many extremely difficult technical elements.

As a result, programs no longer tell a story: you could change the music, you wouldn't see the difference.

    Of course, there are a few exceptions, but I much prefer reviewing past competitions... The emotion is intact... (199W)
    TTBien, malgré la longueur…

    - "Wait for" est vraiment une attente matérielle : j’attends quelqu’un, ou mon train. Lorsque "j’attends" tout en anticipant un plaisir, penser à «expect» ou a «look forward to+ ing».
    - Bien pour le respect de «hardly anything» (hardly semi négatif)
    - "Those were the great days of…" / "those were the days…" c’était le bon temps!
    - Attention de ne pas laisser penser que la performance des «ladies» devrait être moins bonne que celle des hommes … maladresse, sans doute … (comment l’éviter ?)


    EXPRESSION N°2:

    Quelques excellents passages. Quelques erreurs étonnantes aussi (qui doivent être des typos ou erreurs dues « aux conditions de travail », j’imagine).

    - I have partially watched the Olympic Games. : cette formulation très maladroite voulait dire qu’une partie de chaque épreuve avait été regardée. La correction, je pense, est bonne.
    (1) je ne comprends pas pourquoi le passé est utilisé. Cela reste une vérité générale exprimée au présent.
    - plusieurs «performances» exprimées au pluriel (ou alors: "A very risky... performance").
    (2) L’action est passée et le prétérite est justifié.


    Bon travail et très bonne correction.

It's a pity that even in the ladies event, contenders need to add quadruple jumps in their programs.
    Of course, there are a few exceptions, but I much prefer reviewing past competitions... The emotion is intact... (199W)

    J'étais à des années-lumière de m'attendre à cette réaction... Mais puisqu'il faut, je précise ma pensée...
    Mon point de vue est que la beauté d'un programme ne se mesure pas au nombre de quadruples... surtout pour les dames où je préfère voir des arabesques, des attitudes ou des pirouettes. J'ajoute même que c'est la compétition dames qui me plaît le plus (en général)
    En me relisant, je trouve même qu'il n'y a rien à changer à ma phrase.

    One thing I do watch, though, is the opening ceremony. Every country does their utmost to ensure a wonderful show with fireworks, electronic images, aerial views and it comes to something really grand. But what I like best is the introduction of the national delegations, all dressed in traditional clothes, athletes of all disciplines gathered together and sometimes carrying a message for/to the world. I always discover with amazement tiny - and bigger - countries with improbable/unlikely names and costumes and I really love this! (147)


    EXPRESSION N°4:

    Television has made us forget that the athletes who were present in Beijing lived in a bubble because of the pandemic. I basically watched the figure skating events. I find that so thrilling! Really, I practised skating a little when young and know how difficult it is. When I watch figure skating, I imagine myself with a partner, dancing to my favourite music with lighting effects. Yet, every time they perform a flip jump, an axel jump or a spin, I tremble with fear because I dread a fall; then I’m relieved when everything has gone well.
    Moreover, I don’t like the idea of people fighting for their country and being eager to bring back medals for their country. I think sportsmen and sportswomen should fight for the sake of sport and for universal brotherhood. 128
