I've just put up the fifth section of "Teach Yourself Elet Anta" If
you'd like a look the index to the course is here:
Here's another translation exercise from the course, if anyone wants a
go (sorry that it's rather culture-specific...)
There are many mice in my house. I don't like them, they are dirty.
Yesterday I saw three mice on the kitchen table, eating the bread. My
mother said, "Buy a cat. Cats happily eat mice, and there will be no
problem in your home." In the shop I looked at two cats. The second
one was very big and bad tempered, and it only had one eye. The
attendant said, "It eats many mice." I bought it enthusiastically.
The cat sat in my kitchen, and its one eye looked at me angrily. I
was frightened of it, and I felt sorry for the mice. But in the
evening, I saw the cat lying on a chair. Very near it were three
mice. All four animals were sleeping calmly.
