  • Marc: «Salut! Je ne pensais pas te trouver ici
  • Caroline : « J’aime bien me faire masser de temps en temps. Je ne viens pas très souvent dans ce salon car la plupart du temps, je suis trop occupée à la maison avec les enfants ! »
Mark:Hello! I didn’t think I would find you here!”
Carolyn:” I like coming to get a massage from time to time. I don’t come to this salon very often because most of the time, I’m too busy at home with the children!”

  • Marc : « A qui veux-tu faire croire ça ? Maintenant, dis-moi, combien de fois es-tu déjà venue ? »
  • Caroline : « Eh bien, c’est tout nouveau et je crois que je n’y suis allée que trois fois seulement. »
Mark: Who do you expect to (want to make) believe that? Now, tell me, how many times have you come so far?
Carolyn: Well, it’s all very new (recent) and I think I’ve only been three times.

  • Marc : Comment ? Tu n’es venue que trois fois ? Ce n’est vraiment pas beaucoup ! Non, je n’y crois pas !
  • Caroline : Quelque chose me dit que toi, tu as pris l’abonnement ?!
Mark: How (What)? You've only come three times? That is really not very much! No, I can’t believe that!
Carolyn: Something tells me that you have subscribed to this spa?!

  • Marc : Ma parole, mais tu lis dans mes pensées !
  • Caroline : Il m’est déjà arrivé de deviner quelques-uns de tes projets mais pour l’abonnement, c’est bien la dernière chose que j‘aurais aimé savoir !
Mark: My word! But you’re reading (in) my thoughts!
Carolyn: It has already occurred to me to guess some of your plans but (for) a membership is really the last thing I would have liked to know!

  • Marc : Oui, je me doute que tu aurais préféré connaître mon numéro de compte ou à combien s’élève mon héritage ?!
  • Caroline : Aucun des deux, par contre si tu pouvais me confier le montant de ton assurance vie…
Mark: Yes, I’m suspecting you’d rather prefer to know the number of my account or what the amount of my inheritance is!
Carolyn: Not any (neither) of them, on the other hand, if you could tell me what the amount of your life insurance is …

  • Marc : En dehors de ça, nous dirons que tu n’es pas une femme intéressée…
  • Caroline : Plus que tu ne le crois et fais attention à ne pas rester seul dans une rue déserte le soir…
Mark: Apart/aside (outside) from that, let’s just say you’re not a self-centred woman…
Carolyn: More than you would believe! And take care not to stay alone in a deserted street by night…
