    a lot of folks didn't make it out at all


    Que peut bien vouloir dire cette phrase

    Moi ma version serait "Beaucoup de gens ne l'ont pas remarqué"

    Qu'en dîtes-vous ?

    Au moins deux possibilités :

    I got out of Japan before the tsunami but a lot of folks didn't make it out at all = beaucoup ne s'en sont pas du tout sortis

    I managed to identify the blue whale in the mist but a lot of folks didn't make it out at all = beaucoup n'ont pas réussi à l'apercevoir

    Bref : contexte, contexte, contexte...
