Les Cloches (... and how to get accents)

Ecoutes les cloches dans ce video

Une bonne amie qui habite à Winnipeg à venu a Trinidad pour trois semaines. Hier elle m'a visité et nous sommes allées a Mount St. Benedict (la monastère Bénédictine la plus ancienne de la Caribbean). Nous sommes allées dans l'église et nous avons allumé des bougies de prières. Aussi, nous avons cherché notre ami, un des moines, Frère Tony, mais il n'était pas la. Plus tard, pendant nous avons parlé de la vie, j'ai fait ce video des cloches et des montagnes. (Seulement cinquante secondes)

A good friend who lives in Winnipeg has come to Trinidad for three weeks. Yesterday she visited me and we went to Mount St. Benedict (the Caribbean's oldest Benedictine monastery). We went into the church and lit prayer candles. Also, we looked for our friend, one of the monks, Brother Tony, but he was not there. Later, while we talked about life, I made this video of the bells and the mountains. (Only fifty seconds).

And here's how to get the accents, etc. on a Mac!
Option + e, vowel = acute accent Ex: á é í ó ú
Option + `, vowel = grave accent Ex: à è ì ò ù
Option + u, vowel = umlauts Ex: ä ë ï ö ü ÿ
Option + i, vowel = circumflex Ex: â ê î ô û
Option + c = cedilla Ex: ç
Option + n, letter = tilde Ex: ñ õ
Option + 1 = Spanish exclamation Ex: ¡
Option + Shift + / = Spanish question mark Ex: ¿
Option + s = German ß Ex: ß
Option + \ = European open quote Ex: «
Option + Shift + \ = European end quote Ex: »
Option + o = o with a slash Ex: ø
Option + Shift + 2 = Euro symbol Ex: €
