  1. According to Year 8, "un cavalier bleu marine" is part of their school uniform!!

    (I blame Google Translate!)

  3. Yes I have just used Google and jumper is the first translation of cavalier. It makes me think of a thread that was on the ICT forum recently. The poster was saying that now there was a Google app for translation, we linguists should just give in gracefully and vacate our place in the EBACC. To be replaced naturally by ICT.
     
  4. I may have lost the will to live.

    Today's gem was not just "un cavalier", but "un cavalier avec est monté".

    (In other words "a jumper with a rose", except we appear to have entered "arose" into dear old Google Translate. Oh dear, oh dear).
    I should explain that the school jumper does indeed have an embroidered rose as the school's emblem.
