Woman in Big Dress [Nov. 21st, 2001|10:50 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick

We have to do all this dumb Internet homework for German lately. Today one of the parts of our assignment was to look at this picture and "Schreiben Sie zu dem Bild 3-5 Sätze auf Englisch." (write 3-5 sentences in English about the picture)

I wrote:
A woman's been bored in the house all day and takes a break to look out the window at the boats coming and going. She wishes she could get out of that big dress and go swimming or sailing. However, she can't because she has to go cook. See the olive oil on the windowsill? She's making Italian bread. It'll be tasty.
And what German did I learn here?

Just a guess...

Tomorrow's assignment will be "translate the sentences from yesterday into German".

I'd have tried to write that in German but it's only been twelve years since my last German class, so I forgot.

Replace: "See the olive oil on the windowsill?"

With: "Her place is in the kitchen"

You should check out Raitt Hall [its in the Quad if you don't know]. When it was built it housed the Home Economics Deptartment [it was stopped in the late 50's], and above the doorway, along the path going up to Denny Hall, there are four figerenes. Three of which are women doing household chores [pouring wine, child care, and preparing food] the last ,and my fav, is a man with a list of things for the women to do.

Like I said....nice....
