    password= bewildered /bɪˈwɪldəd/ 

    = perplexe.

    the scene takes place in Sherlock's office.

    There are 3 characters: Sherlock, Watson and another man.

    The man was about to leave maybe because S insulted him but S managed to

    convince the man to sit down. Indeed, thanks to his power of observation and

    deduction he could tell him what he did last night.

    First Sherlock succeeded in telling the man what he did last night:

    he came from Devon.

    He took the first train in the morning. He had a disappointing breakfast with a cup of

    black coffee. He met a girl.

    Then the man said: how on earth did you notice all that?

    Finally Sherlock explained him how he managed to understand. (ex: the napkin)


    Convince = convaincre.

    To manage to + BV = réussir à

    to succeed in + V-ing = I succeeded in convincing him

    indeed = en effet

    disappointing = décevant

    disappointed = déçu

    a napkin = une serviette de table

    to notice= remarquer

    how on earth = comment donc...


    migh, must, may WS

    OMG, I'm telling you I'm sure, she must be the killer!

    You may be right.

    I might be wrong but I doubt it!


    Pour exprimer l'incertitude on utilise des auxiliaires modaux

    S + Auxiliaire modal + BV

    90% = MUST

    50%= MAY

    10%= MIGHT



    apprendre la leçon par coeur.
