Version 2 Where (the hell) is Matt? in English

Here is the English translation of the  article that I used with my Spanish classes.  I’m offering alongside the English article because the language, and the perception is different.

Here is the English article: Matt Harding Article

Here is the original Spanish: Matt Harding Spanish

Version 1:

It’s a video that makes us envious.

We would change places with Matt.

Matt was born in Connecticut.

He’s a programmer.

He decided to see the world.

During his travels, he has been dancing.

He has left us this legacy of his lack of rhythm.

Have you see his video?

 Version 2:

It’s a fun video.  I think that makes us envious and that we would change places with Matt.

Matt is an American born in Connecticut.  He’s a programmer that, one day, decided to see the world.  During his travels throughout seven continents, he has  danced in thirty nine countries.

He has left us this legacy of his lack of rhythm and his fascination with the world.  Have you seen his video?

Version 3:

It’s a very fun video.  I suppose that makes us a little envious and that we would happily change places with Matt.

Matt is a thirty-five year old American. Born in Connecticut, this programmer that, one great day, decided to abandon his work and see the world.  During his travels throughout seven continents, he has  danced  his dance in thirty nine countries.

He has left us this legacy making fun of  his lack of rhythm and his fascination with exploring the world.  Have you seen his video?

Version 4

¿Where is Matt?

This is  a very fun video.  I suppose that makes us all just a little envious and that we would, with great pleasure, change places with Matt.

Matt is a thirty-five year old American born in Connecticut.   He is a videogame programmer that, one great day, decided to abandon his work and see the world.  During his travels throughout seven continents, he has  danced his own unique dance in thirty nine countries.

He has left us this unprecedented legacy making fun of  his lack of rhythm and his great fascination with exploring the world. 

Surely you’ve seen his video, haven’t you?
