Leaving Cert French Translation Exercises- Voting/ Politics

Bonjour! Here are a few translation exercises for Leaving Certs. They are based on my voting vocabulary here. The solutions are at the bottom of the page 😉

  • In my opinion, everyone distrusts politicians because they have hidden agendas. They do not act in the best interests of the country. However, they can often promise the moon!
  • I find it shocking that voters do not use their vote. We are lucky to live in a democracy. Voting is essential to express oneself and to use our voice. (avoir de la chance: to be lucky)
  • The majority of politicians are greedy. They often lie and are not motivated to change our society.
  • Political affairs affect us all. Politicians make important decisions. It is our duty to elect passionate politicians.
  • There are lots of political scandals nowadays. Politicians do not use their power to change society.

  • À mon avis, tout le monde se mĂ©fient des politiciens car ils ont des agendas cachĂ©s. Ils ne choisissent pas les meilleures dĂ©cisions pour le pays. Cependant, ils peuvent souvent promettre la lune !
  • Je trouve choquant que les Ă©lecteurs n’utilisent pas leurs votes. On a/ Nous avons de la chance de vivre dans une dĂ©mocratie. Voter est essentiel pour s’exprimer et d’utiliser notre voix.
  • La majoritĂ© des politiciens sont avides. Ils mentissent souvent et ne sont pas motivĂ©s de changer notre sociĂ©tĂ©.
  • Les affaires politiques nous touchent tous. Les politiciens font des dĂ©cisions importantes. C’est notre devoir d’élire des politiciens passionnants.
  • Il y a beaucoup de scandales politiques de nos jours. Les politiciens n’utilisent pas leur pouvoir pour changer la sociĂ©tĂ©.
