Oftmals kann
nach Verben sowohl der to-Infinitiv als auch das Gerund stehen, wobei es zu
einer unterschiedlichen Bedeutung kommt:

• He stopped
to smoke (and answered the phone.) (Er hörte auf zu Rauchen, um ans Telefon zu

PS: im Voraus

Also den ersten vielleicht 

He doesn't like getting up sometimes in the middle of the night. 

Der satz klingt ein bisschen komisch aber mir fält nix besseres ein wenn das sometimes drin sein muss. Weil so klingt das als ob er manchmal nicht gerne aufsteht aber es ihn die meißte zeit nicht stört mitten in der nacht aufzuwachen.
ich würde das sometimes einfach weglassen. oder aber "He doesn't like how he gets up in the middle of the night sometimes" aber da ist kein gerundium drinne.  

Caitlyn enjoys riding her bike often in the rain. 

Das sind meine vorschläge. 

Ich habe gerade einen eine Einleitung für meinen Englischtext geschrieben, die ich auch gerne bei der Schularbeit so ähnlich schreiben würde, findet ihr sie ok?

It was a rainy afternoon. I was hiking on a nearby mountain. This mountain is densely wooded and at rainy days or at night it can be very scary to be there. In fact, as stupid as it sounds, that is the main reason why I usually decide to hike there. As I said I was often around there at night and also at rainy days but I never was there at a rainy night. So I decided to try something new.

Everything started at 8 p.m. I glanced out of my small bathroom window and saw that it started to rain. After thinking about it for a moment I decided to go for a hike. I packed everything I would need in my big backpack, turned all lights off and went outside. I realized, that the rain became heavier and it thundered. But despite all I locked my door and started the adventure………

Findet sich jemand der meinen Text auf Rechtschreibung kontrolliert :) (summary: "Bread on the Water")?

Hier ist der Text:

Stations of the action in "Bread on the water"

In the short story "Bread on the water" by David Lubar occur two teenagers: Andy and Tomy. The action begins in the church. Andy behaves so that he will be kicked out of the church - and his best friend Tommy same time. The two friends launched after a man who tells them that he has already eaten quite a while nothing. Andy makes sure that the man gets something to eat. Thereafter, the two friends go back to church and meet with Tommy's parents. Parents grumble from Tommy because he was kicked out of the church. On the way home sees Tommy as Mrs Linden her son spanking and Mrs Skeffington rushes past the old Mrs Wilming without offering her to take them, even though the old woman has her trouble with walking.

The backgrounds in the short story by David Lubar

The saying "action speaks louder than words" - actions tell more than words - plays a significant role in the short story "Bread on the water" by David Lubar. Andy is when he gives the hungry man to get some food. The crucial difference between words and deeds is the visibility. An act can be seen, and indeed for a long time. Words, however, are often spoken in the wind. For one ear, out the other ear, is often said to words. About deeds can not judge so disparagingly one. When eating the hungry homeless is nothing. He wastes no words. The only thing he says is the end: "Thank you". This one word is much in this moment of the story much more important than action. Andy is again, as he is a generous tip, although the service is mismatched.

Dankeschön ;)

Charakterisierung Englisch Just Along for a Ride Fehle?!

Wäre lieb, wenn jmnd. drüberschauen könnte und evtl. Fehler findet, Verbesserungsvorschläge...

The story “Just Along for the Ride” by Dennis Kurumada in 1972 is about young boys who dirve in a car and try to flatten a kid. This plan gets out of control and doesn’t turn out well. The main character of the story ”Just Along for a Ride” is a male student, about 16 years old. The protagonist uses everyday language (l.15) He describes himself being “pretty dull” (l.3), because he drives around with his friend who just got his license. In fact he is “cold, damp and bored” (l. 5) what the narrator also tells us directly (the main character is also the narrator. That implies that they aren’t very creative, otherwise he wouldn’t be bored. As the other boys want to flatten a kid he doesn’t agree. On the one hand he has feelings of guilty, he’s a thoughtful person. On the other hand he is scared, which means that he is a careful person and thinks about the consequences. Because of this characteristic he is gibed by his friends. They think that he is a killjoy and not humorous. For example: “You worry too much. Whenever we wanna have some fun, you always chicken out.” (l.15). He isn’t very assertive or strong-minded in the beginning. His friends retune him and oppress him. For instance: “We drive up slow, then swing open the door real fast, and knock the guy on his can,” says Phil (l.10). The protagonist is against it. “You guys are nuts,” he says and “What if they call the cops?” (l.15) Although they still do it. Or in line 34 he wants the driver to stop the car but the driver convinces him that it is necessary to drive on. In the end he feels guilty even if it hasn’t been his idea and he tried to stop the others. That’s why he is really responsible-minded but he also doesn’t want his friends to get in trouble, he’s kind of loyal. He shows his feelings what makes him sensible (l.30). Finally he gets strong-minded and assertive. At night his friends visit him and propose him to forget about the crime. He gets mad and visits the victim, what nobody expects. All in all I think the protagonist is a adorable person. I can identify with the character because it’s realistic how he reacts. Besides I liked it a lot that he did not do what his friends want him to do. He goes his own was and that’s brave. In opposite to the protagonist there’s Phil also a co-driver. He is male, a student and about 16 years old. The first time he says something he cuts off the protagonist (l.8). That’s impolite and not respectful. On top of that he is vicious, careless and sneaky because he has the idea “to drive up to somebody….some kid….and flatten him.”(l.8) He is language is colloquial, e. g. “We wanna have some fun…“ (l.16) and firstly he doesn’t speak fluently (l.8) It seems that he tries to be funny and cool, so the others respect him. In conclusion I think Phil isn’t very authentic and very likeable. I have the impression that he is a daredevil and a false friend.
