FREE MOCK EXAM AT KATEDRA LANGUAGE SCHOOL: 27th February 2014
MERRY XMAS TO EVERYBODY !!!!!!!
- The annual Jáky Internet English Competition was held on 26th November between 14:30 and 15:30.
I chose 1 amusing poem by Walter Occleston to translate from English into Hungarian and 2 short ones to translate from Hungarian into English.
The atmosphere was excellent and it was my pleasure to watch the 23 enthusiastic students trying to find the best rhymes.
From Jáky 9 students: Magyar Csaba, Hegyi Kornél, Kovács Laura, Bors Zoltán, Sipőcz Attila, Mekota Norbert, Szabó Patrik, Horváth Péter and Peresztegi Veronika translated the funny lines.
Thank you my fellow teachers Hortobágy Marina and Sárkány Rita for their help in checking the poems.

The most precise and artistic translation was handed in by Magyar Csaba, which can be read below.
Muskát Zsuzsa: A giliszta
Pityereg a kis giliszta
Nem lehetek masiniszta
Anyja mondja: "Fogjál halat.
Tudhatnád! A legjobb falat."
Varró Dániel: Buszvezetők
A buszvezetők mind mogorvák,
Odacsukják az utasok orrát.
Ahogy az orrok ellilulnak,
A buszvezetők felvidulnak.

A strange thing is a platypus,
it doesn't look a bit like us.
It’s not related to the Camel,
but it really is a mammal.
Got no teeth, it has to suck,
big flat beak just like a duck.
Mum lays eggs, I have heard,
even though she’s not a bird.
As a den I might have guessed,
underground she has a nest.
Inside ears and what the heck,
it’s really true they have no neck.
I don’t know if you boil or fry,
when you're making Platy pie.
|Magyar Csaba 13/B
Muskát Zsuzsa: A Giliszta
Cry the little wormy does
I can’t be the one who drives
Mother says: „You must find fish.
You know they’re the best bits.”
Varró Dániel : Buszvezetők
Every bus driver is grumpy,
For discomfort they’re hungry.
When you hit your nose in a turn,
They will laugh inside like a turd.
Fura ez a kacsacsőrű,
Hozzák nem túl hasonszőrű.
Nincs sok köze a tevéhez,
Sokkal inkább emlősékhez.
Nincsen foga szívnia kell,
S nem sokra megy egy csőrrel.
Anyja tojást rak úgy tudom,
Mégsem mondanám hogy tulok.
Mivel ők nem túl merészek,
Föld alatt van a kis fészek.
Nem látni se fület, nyakat
Mi a fene, furcsa fajzat.
Sütni vagy forralni kéne,
Anya kérdezte pitéhez.
