translations are a perk of being a language teacher. One of my favorites: from the Latin, which was essentially ” deer, with their branching antlers” became
“ the leafy deer.”
in that same class, the Latin ” bolts of lightning were hurled from the heavens at the ships on the sea” became
“ bolts of flaming ships were hurled at the heavens.
the class drew pictures of their translations for a project. Leafy deer and flaming ships in the heavens.
