Hello!

I have section 9 finished and ready for PL. Let me know what needs fixed for that one. I'm hoping to have more done by middle of next week. Thanks again so much for the French soundbites they help tremendously!

ah a new section, wonderful. What a tragic ending. I'm a bit confused though, if Sylvia was already dead, who was it that moved and opened the door ? :shock: And I'm happy that nothing happened to the cat, I feared it was one of those stories where the cat died :(

the reading is excellent and your French was definitely improved :thumbs: glad I could help. :9:

There is only one tiny little cut to make:

> at 11:16: repetition: "he said to me" – can be cut once

The rest is fine. Thanks and have a nice weekend.

thank you, Eva, and good to hear from you again. Here all is fine with me, just the whole situation is a bit depressing, but I'm not ill.

Both sections now PL ok :) Hope you are ok too

Hello!

I hope you are doing well! I have the first section of the street of the lady of our fields done. It probably has some pronunciation issues (specifically with the french woman's accented English and the French at the beginning ) any help there would be much appreciated. I have section 7 done, I just need to edit it. I'm hoping to get to it in the next couple of days.

Section 13

Length 14:47

Hope you are doing well!

no it's actually quite fine. The old lady must have a strange accent, so I think you did it quite well, considering :mrgreen: I think this time we need not change anything. I'll mark it PL ok. ("Why Susie !" was making me giggle :lol: )

thanks, and here all is well, I hope the whole crisis will soon turn back to normal free life though. :?

oh I loved this story. Quite romantic, but still with a gothic touch over it all. Especially the ending with the tombstone is quite chilling, even though one expects it all throughout. Lovely !

Perfect reading and the French wasn't too bad. I think we need no corrections there. :thumbs:

Just one tiny error with the end disclaimer:

> at 35:11: "End of Section 7" – you say "Part" 7

I feel very picky now :?

Thanks, and have a nice week still !

Sonia
