wie antworte ich mit doch in englisch?

12 Antworten

Im Englischen gibt es leider kein Wort, das in dieser Situation gleichbedeutend mit "doch" ist.

"Doch" ist sowohl in dieser Bedeutung als auch in vielen anderen Verwendungen eines der am schwierigsten zu übersetzenden deutschen Wörter. Mit einem simplem "doch" können wir so viel ausdrücken, wobei im Englischen meist Tonfall und Melodie die Hauptaufgabe übernehmen müssen.

Ganz generell hat das Deutsche drastisch mehr dieser kleinen modalen Füllwörter (Modalpartikel), sogenannte "flavouring particles" (aber, doch, denn, eben, auch, schon, mal, gerade, gar, also, nur, vielleicht, wohl).

Vorschläge für die von dir gesuchte Antwort "Doch bin ich!" im Englischen:

Actually, I am!

Yet I am!

But I am!

Well, I am from Germany! <strong stress on "am">

Umgangssprachlich auch:

Sure am!

Was schon vor sehr langer Zeit für die Griechen galt, ist heute auf die Briten anzuwenden: Hüte Dich vor Ihnen auch wenn sie Geschenke (Komplimente) bringen!  


zunächst einmal, auch im Englischen schreibt man am Satzanfang groß. Außerdem werden im Englischen Länderadjektive - im Gegensatz zum Deutschen - immer groß geschrieben, hier also English und German. Schließlich geht mir hier das question tag ab, also , are you?

Im Englischen gibt es verschiedene Möglichkeiten, doch auszudrücken, wobei auch die Betonung eine Rolle spielen kann. Hier z. B.

But I am.

I am though.

Yet I am.

Sure / Certainly / Of course, I am.

You bet, I am.

Indeed I am. oder I am indeed.

Kurzbewerbung; Motivationsschrieben für southern Cross Schüleraustausch ok?

Also ich will mich mit einer Kurzbewerbung bei Southern Cross anmelden und dafür musste ich einen englischen Motivationsbrief schreiben, warum ich weg will und so weiter... wär super wenn ihr ihn mal überfliegen könntet und sagen könntet ib der ok ist? Danke schon mal im Voraus !

Dear Southern Cross team,

My name is _____and in two weeks is my 14th birthday. But in 2018 I would like to celebrate it in Australia.

I´ve thought about if I want to do an exchange a lot and after a one week trip to England where I lived in a host family too, I was sure that I want to do it. I don´t really know how to write this letter without sounding boastful or anything but I think all I can do is to say what I think:

I haven´t got any problem with adjusting other cultures or habits. I mean I don´t yet know the Australian culture, but I haven´t got any problems with things I experienced here in Germany so far. Normaly I´m a confident person, but in a completely new land and school? Well I don´t know how it will be so far away from home and my usual life but on the other hand that´s why I want to do the exchange year. I want to get to know a new culture with new habits and lifestyles. And I hope to find some international friends too. One of my strengths also is that I can get used to circumstances I didn´t like right from the beginning. Sure, that´s all how it works here I Germany and it could be that in Australia everything is different. However I think it´s only human to be a bit afraid of such a big adventure.

There are plenty reasons why I still want to go, even if I´m afraid: For example, as mentioned before, that I want to meet new people and get to know life in a different country. School is another reason. Not only school in Australia, where I hope to be able to study subjects like Surfing or Outdoor Education (I mean how amazing would that be?), but also school in Germany. At my secondary school which is a Gymnasium, I have bilingual English lessons and I´d like to improve my English even further, to do my bilingual A-level and maybe even to study abroad. And apart from these “serious “ reasons , there are just so many opportunities I don´t want to miss. I´ll get the chance for an exchange only one time in my life and I don´t want to sit in class next year thinking “Oh, you could be in Australia now.” When I started to think about doing an exchange, Australia was in my mind right from the start. It has always been my dream designation with its beautiful rainforests, beaches and also the Outback. Sure when I´m there I hope to see as much as possible of the country. Here in Germany I did artistic Gymnastics for 8 and Volleyball for 4 years but maybe there is something that fits better to me.

I really look forward to meet you in person. With best regards, _____
