Como dizer "passe livre" em inglês

anita 13
Hi, guys! How could I say "Eu dei a ele passe livre para fazer o que quisesse". A student suggested "hall pass" but it seems to be strictly connected to a school context. Help me on this one! Thanks!

"to give carte blanche"

He was given carte blanche to do whatever had to be done.

Anita, you are right about "hall pass". A US student is not usually permitted to be outside the classroom during class hours unless he has the permission of his teacher. Permission to go to the bathroom, the school nurse, the office of the principal, etc. is usually given by means of a large piece of painted wood (about the size of an envelope or book) that may have on it the number of his classroom, the words "hall pass", etc. Even at a distance, another teacher will be able to see that the student has permission to be going between the classroom and another authorized location.

Thomas, how would "carte blanche" be pronounced? Not the French pronunciation, right?
So tell me if I got it: this hall pass is a piece of wood that the st has to have at hand in order to be out of the classroom to go wherever he/she needs to? Wow, that's different :shock: Thanks, as usual!

Yes, the pronunciation of "carte blanche" is more or less French. "Kart blahnsh"

And, yes, you have understood what a hall pass looks like. I have been unable to find a picture of one on the Internet.
