Opgave 1


Find alle verberne (udsagnsordene) i præteritum (datid) i nedenstående tekst, og omskriv dem til præsens (nutid). Skriv hele teksten som dit svar, og markér verberne (udsagnsordene) tydeligt som i eksemplet.

Eksempel: Edwin was eight…

Edwin is eight…


Edwin was eight when we left Ghana. We came to Columbus with Auntie Rosie. She told immigration that we were her kids. Our mother was supposed to follow after somehow, but she never found a way, and we never got to know her. At the time, all the Ghanaians coming in were either going to Columbus or the Bronx. It just depended on who you knew. Auntie Rosie knew a woman from boarding school whose brother was getting his PhD in linguistics at Ohio State. He took us in.
    Our whole childhood was Little Ghana. Parties at the lodge, out-dooring ceremonies and wakes. You could go into any convenience store and start speaking Twi1 to somebody behind the counter or in the aisles. Edwin’s first kiss was with Akousa Mensah in the steam room of the Red Roof Inn. I walked in on them and they yelled at me.

The way to know about the vegetables [   ] cook and eat is, of course to grow [   ] [   ]. If [   ] already do, then [   ] may justifiably wonder what [   ] have to teach [   ] in [   ] short sections of the book. In all honesty [   ] are hardly leading authorities on the art of growing vegetables. Nevertheless, [   ] are enthusiasts. And by plundering the knowledge of others with far greater experience, [   ] have attained a level of competence that serves [   ] well.

Based on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, The Original River Cottage Cookbook, 2011
