Excité Alternatives?

Excité Alternatives?

Are there really no alternatives here for excité? I went for ravi - does this not work this context?

Aussi, comment on traduit le mot "to work" dans cette dernière phrase? Marcher marcherait-il?...

Merci en avance!

Hi Amelie, 

In these type of exercises, we try to stay as close to English as possible, so 

excité/e excited

ravi/e delighted

I know people tend to avoid this adjective because of certain connotations but if you take a look at this page from Le Robert dictionary you will see that it is widely used -

Le Robert - définition excité/e

 As for marcher ( synonym to fonctionner)

est-ce que ça marche dans ce contexte ? 

is correct.

Hi Amelie,

Excité  --> exalté ou frénétique

Ravi  --> heureux ou content

Let's see what an expert may comment, but as far as I understand the meaning "ravi" doesn't replace "excité".

Bonne journée

Jim
