Englisch-Hilfe! When oder If?

6 Antworten


beides ist möglich, je nachdem, was ausgedrückt werden soll.

if heißt falls/wenn und drückt eine Bedingung aus (kausal)

We will have a barbecue if the weather is fine at the weekend.

when heißt wenn/sobald und bezieht sich auf die Zeit (temporär)

Dad will buy charcoal for the barbecue when he comes home on Friday evening.

Am besten, du machst die Probe auf Deutsch:

  • Kannst du "falls...." sagen , dann gehört if

  • Kannst du "dann, wenn..." oder "sobald..." sagen, kommt when

In deinem Beispiel hängt's davon ab, was du ausdrücken möchtest, denn beides ist möglich.

Da das oft der Fall ist, hat ja das deutsche "wenn", das vom zeitlichen "wann" herkommt, jetzt beide Bedeutungen, was ein wenig lästig ist, wenn man's übersetzen muss.

when I say sth wrong bedeutet sobald ich etwas Falsches sage

if I say sth wrong bedeutet falls ich etwas Falsches sage. Erscheint mir plausibler, aber ich kenne den Kontext nicht.

Wann benutzt man if und when (Englisch)?

Ich habe das mit dem if und when noch nicht so gut verstanden. Ich schreibe morgen eine Arbeit darüber und wäre glücklich, wenn mir einer helfen würde 😑

Hi :)

Ich schreibe in 2 Tagen Englisch-SA.

Jetzt hat mich aber eine Sache verwirrt:

Warum benutzt man dann und dann das Gerund und dann und dann den Infinitiv?


Infinitiv: to go

Gerund: going

Ein Beispielsatz:

The staff want you (talk) to them and (say) so if you would like them (repeat) things or (explain) anything you don't understand.

Ein Beispielsatz:

(Look) at Hobbamock's Homesite won't take as long as (see) everything at thePilgrim Village.

Kann mir jemand das Thema etwas genauer erklären?

Das wäre wirklich sehr nett.

A metaphor is a literary device where one thing is compared to another by stating they share the same qualities. However, metaphors are different to similes. Similes compare, in contrast to metaphors, two things by relying on words such as like or as. While the metaphor is not suggesting something is like something else. Rather, a metaphor states that one thing is something else. As an example Life is like a roller coaster. Here, the object being described is life. This word stands for the existence of an human being or an animal. Contrary to the noun life, a roller coaster is an exciting entertainment in an amusement park which known for it‘s extreme changes, like it‘s steeply ups and downs, such as it‘s rapidly changing curves and loops. Now that this is known, we can say that the composer combines life with a roller coaster in order to suggest, that like a roller coaster, life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes it‘s thrilling, other times it‘s scary. There are moments of great excitement and anticipation, like when the coaster starts and you are making the first climb. So the ups are those great times when everything is going fine and life is treating you well. And in contrast the downs are the bad times in life when things go terribly wrong and you‘re depressed. However, you have to keep in mind, that after every down will come an up. So the meaning of this metaphor is that life is like being on a roller coaster. We can‘t control the ups and downs of the track, but we do have a choice on how we  will feel about the ride. You can decide for yourself, wheter you can scream or hate it or you can throw your hands up in the air with a big smile on your face and yell out joy at the thrill of the ride. It‘s all up to you.

Könnte jemand bitte meine Englisch Argumentation korrektur lesen?


In Britain, children and teenagers can be given an ASBO if they do anything that is an antisocial behavior. It’s a way of punishing them for their actions instead of going to prison or similar punishments. An ASBO consists of several punishments like being forbidden to go to different areas of a town or to meet specific people.

The problem with ASBO’s is that they can give the person depression because they are socially isolated. Consequently, this can lead to self harm or depression in the worst cases. Secondly, their actions aren’t primarily punished they are prevented so that the child/teen won’t do it anymore. Furthermore, the things that are reported aren’t necessarily illegal sometimes it’s just something that might be annoying to others, like tattoos. Having said that, this might just be a way of showing personality. Reportedly, it has happened that someone was just given an ASBO because he looked scary and was always wearing a hood. Another thing to add is that the pictures that are hung up around town can be really embarrassing and can lead to harassment by others. On the other hand, ASBOS also have advantages. Many teenagers have their problems with school, friends etc. This might lead to some illegal actions like drinking or smoking. In addition to that, there often is some kind of group pressure. ASBO’s are a way of showing them that their actions are wrong and that there is a solution to their problems. For instance, it’s a way of identifying that their actions have been wrong. Another key thing to remember is that ASBO’s can keep the children/teenagers from going to prison and that would be way worse.

All things considered, I think that ASBO’s can be good for the young people to change their antisocial behavior. That way, they can understand that their actions have been wrong and change them for good.
