2 © Fujitsu Limited, 2011 Right! Wrong! Open and Close Certain words are used in the same way in both English and French while they are used differently in another context If in French we say “Je ferme le livre et j’ouvre la fenêtre ” The English version will be “I close the book and open the window”, right? Now, you might think OK, so then if I say “Je ferme la radio et j’ouvre la TV” The English will be “I close the radio and open the TV”, right? 1
