bonjour,

Je souhaiterais dire à une personne dont c'est l'anniversaire " Que puis-je te souhaiter à part une bonne santé et autant d'élèves dont tu aurais besoin pour ton activité"
My attempt: What else can I wish you except a good health and as many pupils as you need for your activity ?

Merci,
Chouquette.

    You wrote a pretty literary sentence, so a literary translation would work. I would suggest:

    What more can I wish you, besides / aside from / beyond...

    thank you everybody,

    Is health a noun-count, an Uncountable count? Is that why you give me this advice to drop the 'a' before 'good health'?

    exactly - health can't be counted, you're either in good health or bad health but not in 'a health' (unless you're in a healthy state)

    Hello,
    Here is my sentence: What more can I wish you except good health and as many pupils as you need for your activity!
    (She needs pupils for sol-fa lessons).

    sounds fine. By sol-fa lessons, you mean singing lessons I guess?
    Hi
    I think Sol-fa is a method for easier music reading and singing

    .....American musician has recently written concerning TONIC SOL-FA : "It is not only a method of making music
    easy, but for making it more truly and profoundly understood."
