    1. Hi Sandro. Thanks for joining in the fun! If you look down the comments, you will find my correct versions which you can use to check yours. When you have finished checking, if you have any questions, feel free to ask…

  2. ok…
    1)Usually this kind of butterfly is found near the lakes or the rivers.
    2) The hibiscus has been bring in Europe from Asia, before the 17th century.
    3) The new natural reserve will be opened the next year at May.

    Le ho confrontate con le tue traduzioni, ma le ho lasciate come le ho tadotte, così puoi spiegarmi gli strafalcioni ! 🙂
    Thanks

    1. 1) niente articoli perchè parliamo in modo generico di sostantivi al plurale
      2) past simple (fatto storico) / “to” Europe (movimento)
      3) “natural” = “naturale” (non va bene) – usiamo “nature” come aggettivo invece / “in” May / “next year” senza articolo)
      4) OK
      5) “were being released” (past continuous passive) – l’azione era già in corso
      6) “These” cages / two times = “twice” / “twice a day” (si usa l’articolo)
      7) La traduzione richiede un “trapassato” / pericolo di = “danger of” + gerundio
      8) “These” giraffes / il resto va anche bene pur non essendo forse la foma più tipica
      9) soil è “suolo” – può anche andare ma “land” è più naturale in questo contesto = terraino
      10) niente articolo perchè parliamo in modo generico di un sostantivo al plurale

      Se vuoi maggiore spiegazione fammi sapere…

      1. Grazie delle correzioni.
        Che disastro ! 😦
        Immaginavo di aver fatto errori sui modi dei tempi. La “consecutio temporum” non è mai stata il mio forte !
        Forse sono troppo vecchia per imparare.
        Mia sorella ora vive in UK , a Corby, dove è stata assunta a tempo indeterminato ( é microbiologa e qui in Italia è un disastro) .
        Quindi vorremmo riunire la famiglia. Siamo rimaste io e mia madre in Italia e mi sto muovendo per ” mollare gli ormeggi” e andare anche noi a Corby.
        Per questo guardo film in inglese e studio, ma sono un pò demoralizzata.
        Più che altro la mia paura è di non capire un bel niente.
        Buona giornata ,
        eleonora.

        1. Finché la maggior parte degli errori che fai sono errori che non impediscono la comprensione (e di fatto è così) non ti devi demoralizzare. Va bene. Poi, vedrai che una volta lì basteranno poche settimane per aggiustare tutto. Il “full immersion” è efficacissimo quando ci sono già delle basi discreti.
