    They're correct, at least the Spanish and Italian ones. The only thing I struggle with is forming verbs in French, but I'm pretty sure I got it right.

    ok granted I don't speak Italian, but 'to be struck by lightning' in Spanish is 'ser alcanzado por un rayo', and I looked up ear trumpet and that's 'trompetilla acústica', so it would be 'mi trompetilla acústica ha sido alcanzado por un rayo'. What you put was quite a crude translation, hence my babelfish assumption
