Bonjour à tous.
J'ai un devoir d'anglais à faire mais je ne suis pas sûr de toutes mes réponses, c'est pourquoi je viens ici pour avoir votre aide s'il vous plaît.
Merci d'avance et bonne journée à vous tous !
LE TEXTE :
On his first day at St Jerome the second university, Roman walked alone into the freshman dormitory. Everybody else carried new luggage, stereos, bicycles, books but Roman carried all of his possessions in a Hefty garbage bag slung over his shoulder. He found his room, walked inside, and met his roommate.
"hey" said the kid with blue eyes and blond hair "you must be my roomie. I'm alex weber"
" I thought you were Indian"
"i'm indian. Roman is my name"
"first or last ?"
"the first name is roman, the middle name is Gabriel, the last name is Fury"
" a spectacular moniker"
"is that your luggage ?"
Roman tossed his Hefty bag onto his bed. He was ashamed of it, his poverty, but pretended to be proud
"yeah" said Roman "i got ninety-nine of them back home. The whole matching set"
"scolarship student huh ?"
"Yeah. Do you have a problem with that ?"
"No, not at all. I'm a legacy"
"A what ?"
"my grandfather went to school here, as did my grandfather, my father and now, i'm here. As long as there's been a weber"
"my family is all about tradition. So, where you from ? what's your major ?"
Before Roman could answer, Alex pulled out a silver flask of whiskey
"you want a drink ?" asked the legacy
"i'm undeclared" said roman
"about the drink or your major ?"
" I don't drink"
"More for me"
Roman looked at Alex's side of the room. All of the white boy's possessions still carried price tags. "well" said Alex "get you stuff unpacked, that shouldn't take too long, and let's head upstairs where the lovely young women make their abodes"
"im not much for parties" said Roman "i think i'm just going to hang around the room"
With a nod of his head and a click of his tongue, Alex left the room. A little stunned and bewildered by his roommate - how had the personal-tastes questionnaire put them together ? - Roman sat down on his bed. Then he noticed a box sitting on the desk. It was a "WELCOME TO ST. JUNIOR" care package.
He opened the box and discovered its content.
"donuts" said roman.
LES QUESTIONS ET MES REPONSES :
The scene is set : in Britain, in the USA, in India, in Italy. Justify with 3 elements in the text.
J'ai choisi "in the USA" mais pour justifier je ne trouve pas 3 élements, peut-être "st jerome the Second University" mais il m'en manque deux.
The scene takes place in : early autumn, winter, spring, summer
J'ai choisi "early autumn" parce que je pense que c'est la rentrée des classes mais je ne sais pas comment justifier?
Give each character's complete identity.
- Alex (middle name isn't precised) Weber
- Roman Gabriel Fury (l.10)
Find in the text the words meaning :
- another student staying in the same room as you : j'ai choisi roommate et roomie
- small bottle : j'ai choisi "silver flask"
- go : je n'ai pas trouvé
- stay : je n'ai pas trouvé également mais je pense que c'est à peu près dans ce passage : "and let's upstairs whre the lovely young women make their abodes"

I think you are mostly on the right track, especially with the true/false. You will find justification if you read it again a few times, in particular, read again the paragraph where you find the words meaning stay and go.
The word freshman/freshmen, since it refers to the class level, can be used together with female, girls or women, rather than changing to freshwomen.
What country is Roman from? Bonne continuation. Sherry
