    icon35.gif A request for my French speaking friends

    Bonjour mes amis!

    My sister is taking A-Level French and has a presentation to do next week. The presentation is all in French and is based on a topic of the global environment.

    There are a few words and phrases she is having difficulty translating, so I wondered if any of you guys would be kind enough to translate the following for me

    Rainforest

    Soil erosion

    Global warming

    carbon dioxide

    hardwoods

    endangered

    evapotranspiration (no, I'm not joking...)

    Many thanks! Merci beaucoup!

    Does any of this help ?

    Forêt tropicale humide
    Ravinement
    Réchauffage global(mondial)
    Bioxyde carbonique
    Bois durs
    Mis en danger
    can't help with Evapotranspiration (so just pronounce it in english)

    I used this site for the translation, so some of these may be very literal

    Rainforest = Forêt pluyante
    Soil erosion = Érosion du sol
    Global warming = Chaufage Global
    carbon dioxide = Dioxide de Carbone
    hardwoods = Bois durs
    endangered = en danger / ( être en danger )
    evapotranspiration = ????
