Junior Cert French- Translation Exercises

Here are some translation exercises to prepare you for the written section. The solutions are underneath! 😉

I arrived here safe and sound yesterday. It’s heaven on earth! The sun is shining and the sky is clear.

I left the house after breakfast. I will go to the supermarket to do the groceries later. I have my phone with me if you want to contact me.

I am really enjoying myself here. I will go sightseeing tomorrow. I will see the churches and the beach. I am looking forward to it. It will be great, I hope!

I went on a school trip to Paris last month. We stayed in a hotel beside the beach. In the hotel there was a swimming pool, two restaurants and a games room. I really enjoyed myself.

It will be my mother’s birthday tomorrow. She will be fifty years old. We will go to a restaurant. I will buy a birthday cake in the bakery tomorrow.

I don’t like the school in France. The teachers are too strict and school starts at 8am. The food in the canteen isn’t nice. I eat croissants every morning.

Do you have plans for the summer holidays? I hope to find a part time job. I want to earn money.

Je n’aime pas l’école en France. Les professeurs sont trop stricts et l’école commence à 8h. La nourriture dans la cantine n’est pas bonne. Je mange des croissantes chaque matin.
