A few more things:
In "Base types" section:
unmodifiable => immutable
(both are correct but immutable is a clearer technical term)
In "Container types":
unmodifiable => immutable as above
dictionnary => dictionary
min/MAJ case discrimination => lower/UPPER case sensitive
see verso => see other side
("verso" is not wrong, but it's an unusual word in US English)
logial => logical
In "Sequences indexing":
negative index -4 => [the formatting is broken]
In "Boolean Logic"
twice simultaneously => both simultaneously
remain => modulo
In "Conditional loop statement"
care to inifinite loops! => be careful of infinite loops!
In "Display / Input"
recto => other side (like "verso" further up)
littéral => literal
don't miss to close file => don't forget to close the file
[but you might mention the "with" statement]
In "Function definition"
bloc => block
(« black box ») => ("black box")
[English speakers may not recognize « » symbols]
In "Generator of int sequences"
You might mention that range makes a generator only in Python 3.
In Python 2 it makes an actual list and xrange makes a generator.
