    Dear native English speakers,
    Here's my new exercise sheet. Would you please check it?
    3 次の文を和訳しなさい。
    ①I've lived in Ibaraki, Osaka, for more than twenty years. (地名は大きな単位が後)

    ②During the Second World War, my paternal grandfather served in the Navy. (paternal = 父方の、Navy = 海軍)

    ③After the war, he worked for this hospital as a nurse.

    ④The city government supplied the victims of the earthquake with clothing and food.
    (city government = 市(役所) victim = 被災者 earthquake = 地震 clothing = 衣服)

    ⑤Who took care of your dog while you were away? (while SV = SVする/した間 away = いない)

    ⑥At twenty I moved to Washington, where I got married to Jane. (get married to~=~と結婚する)

    ⑦A lot of money was spent on this project, but it didn't work. (work =うまくいく)

    I volunteered to clean the park.

    (While で始め, care を用いて12または13語で)

    [According to my dictionary, American people use "the" before "hospital" while British people don't.]

    The company stopped supplying us with electricity.
