Sagt man im Englischen zu Tieren It?

im Englischen wird (fast) nur bei Personen nach Geschlecht unterschieden.

Dinge/Gegenstände/Sachen sind im Englischen immer sächlich (it).

Auch Tiere sind im Englischen immer sächlich (it).

Ausnahmen werden manchmal bei Tieren gemacht, deren Geschlecht man kennt (tomcat = Kater, she-cat = Katze) und

bei Haustieren (aber Vorsicht, ein Hund mit einem männlichen Namen muss noch lange kein Rüde sein oder umgekehrt).

Mit dem sächlichen 'it' für Tiere ist man also immer auf der sicheren Seite.

Weitere Ausnahmen sind z.B.:

Mond = moon (weibl. she)

Sonne = sun (männl. he)

'The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hooray. The sun has got his hat on and is coming out to stay.' (Engl. Kinderlied).

Sonne und Mond haben aber auch in anderen Sprachen das entgegengesetzte Geschlecht zum Deutschen: le soleil (Sonne), la lune (Mond) frz.

Tiere sind immer "it", es sei denn sie haben einen männlichen oer weiblichen Namen, dann werden sie zu "he" oder "she", also My cat Mary is nine yedars old. SHE is .....

Ein Hai ist weder ein Haus- noch ein Kuscheltier, also:** it.** Man weiß auch in der Regel nicht, ob man von einem männlichen oder weiblichen Hai gefressen werden möchte.

Was könnte ich bei dieser Charakterisierung verbessern?

The short story "The Big Race" by Toby Sweet is about a swimmer who feels pity for his opponent and lets him win. This characterization is about the narrator of the story. This boy is a fast swimmer and has to swim two lengths backstroke at Chester-le-Street, on that day. One of his opponents is Gordon Hayes. Before the race, the narrator notices Gordon talking with his father. He is very sceptical and feels that something wrong is going on. Out of curiosity he asks Gordon what the matter is. He gets the answer that Gordon's father will hit his son, if he doesn't win the race. After that, while he is warming up and planning his strategy, the narrator always has to think about that. He is worried and can't concentrate. During the race the boy decides to let Gordon win, because he wants to protect him from his father and feels sorry about that. His behavior is very generous, because he doesn't think about himself in this situation. Probably the shoutig of Mr. Hayes motivates him to do that. Also Gordon has been only a half of a body behind him. Maybe the narrator has thought that Gordon can manage it. At first the boy regrets that he only has come in second. He has doubts about his decision. Maybe the second place isn't enough for him. But he isn't the typical natural winner, because he doesn't have a problem to lose under the existing conditions. He is pleased to see that Gordons father is smiling and knows it has been worth it. He is sure that his decision is right!

Mündliche Englische Prüfung ist das richtig?

Ich hab jetzt bald meine englische Prüfung über Rassismus und hab das was ich sagen möchte schon mal vorgeschrieben, weil ich sehr schlecht Englisch kann. Da sind sehr viele Fehler drin. Könnte mir wohl jemand helfen?

As everywhere in the world, Racism is an important topic in the USA. The definition of racism is when a person or group is discriminated because of race, religion, sex or national origin. Even though Racism is illegal in the USA, it is still present. Blacks, gays and lesbians wrote on Twitter and Facebook of threats and attacks. In New York people found a graffiti with the label “white power again“. Minorities claim that white policemen shoot unarmed blacks allegedly because of their color and complain that they remain unpunished and protected by their superiors.

A good example of racism is the movie called Blind Side. When Mike came into the new class, he was looked at strangely by everyone because he was different. Even the small children ran away from him, because they were frightened. The mother of SJ had a bad feeling when Mike stayed overnight.The friends of SJ's  mother talked bad about Mike and the area from which he came.

Ich habe das mal so einigermassen  korrigiert. Allerdings weiß ich nicht was du mit "quarter" meinst - Vielleicht Viertel?-  Quarter oder Quarters ist die Wohnung- aber üblicherweise Militärwohnung-deshalb "area"
