Bonjour,

J'ai un doute quant à la traduction en anglais des phrases ci-dessous. Si l'un d'entre vous pouvait me corriger, pourquoi pas plusieurs, cela serait vraiment formidable car j'aimerais mettre ces phrases sur mon Facebook. D'avance merci de votre aide.

Je vous ai vu hier après-midi. Pourquoi montiez-vous dans un arbre ?
I saw you yesterday afternoon. Why were you climbing a tree?

J'étais en train de monter dans un arbre pour vérifier si l'homme venait (ou descendait) du singe.
I was climbing a tree because I wanted to verify if man came from monkey.

Et alors ?
So what?

Quand je suis arrivé en haut, je n'avais plus envie de descendre.
When I reached the top, I did not want to come down any more.
