Wieso ist die Lösung richtig?
Ich über für eine Klassenarbeit und da steht ein Satz den in die indirekte Rede übertragen sollte, aber ich verstehe den zweiten Teil der Lösung nicht.
Der Satz: I was waiting for the bus when he arrived.
So die Lösungen sagen:
I had been waiting for the bus (bis dahin ist mir alles klar) when he arrived.
So aber das „when he arrived“ da hätte ich geschrieben: when he had arrived.
Denn ich muss hier doch nochmal die Zeitform wechseln oder?
warten dauert, ankommen ist ein Zeitpunkt.
"when he had arrived" würde bedeuten, daß er schon längst vorher angekommen war, als Du (nachher) immer noch weiterhin auf den Bus wartetest (und nicht, daß er in einem Moment ankam, als Du auf den Bus wartetest).
"had been waiting" heißt ja auch nicht "hatte gewartet", sondern quasi "war mit Warten beschäftigt", "war dabei, zu warten" (normale Vergangenheit, aber continuous form).
Denk' ich doch.
Signalwort "when"-Welche Zeitform?
Der Satz sieht folgendermaßen aus:
___she___ (sleep) when he ___ (come) in?
Welche Zeitform gehört da hin? Und wie bildet man diese Zeitform? Danke im Voraus!
LG Chris :-)

Kann ich diese Zusammenfassung zum Buch The bottle Imp so lassen?
Hallo, ich weiß nicht, ob ich diese Zusammenfassung so stehen lassen kann! Es wäre nett, wenn ihr vielleicht mal schauen könntet, ob ich irgendwie Zeitfehler oder ähnliches drin habe .
summaryKeawe an Hawaiian, decided to go to San Francisco. There he noticed one beautiful house and stopped at it .Then the owner of the home came to him. Keawe said to the owner that he would like to have so a house, too. And so the owner meant, that he could have a house for 50 dollars when he bought a bottle with an Imp which fulfilled all his wishes . So Keawe bought this bottle. The owner of this bottle musn´t be in possession of it when he dies or his sole will burn in hell . It must sell cheaper than the owner has paid before. Keawe went to his friend Lopaka, and told him all what had done and everything about the bottle. Then they went together back to Hawaii. Upon arriving home Keawe discovered that his uncle had died and that he had left him a beautiful land at Hookena and exactly enough money to build the home of his dreams. Then Lopaka bought the bottle because keawe didn´t want this bottle anymore. Keawe accepted the good fortune and began living a life of contentment with a house of his dreams . Until he saw a beautiful woman names, Kokua. They wanted to marry. Then the rich Hawaiian went home and saw, that he had Chinese evil. He realized, that he couldn´t marry Kokua in this condition, so he decided that he had to find the magic bottle and must buy it back. Only doing this he become healthy and could marry his love. When he was back in San Francisco a white man had this bottle. But Keawe realized , that the price had dropped dramatically. The owner had paid two cents. Keawe decided that he will marry Kokua and so he bought the bottle for one cent. He wished that he is healthy. Now the Chinese evil was healded, but he always thought at this, that he can´t sell the bottle cheaper an that he must go to hell when he die. Then Keawe married Kokua. He told Kokua all from the beginning and said that he can´t sell the bottle cheaper then one cent. Then Kokua said that they had to go to a country where a penny is not the lowest coin. They went to an Island of France and sold the bottle for four centimes there. Then Kokua bought the bottle from her man with the help of an old man. She told the old man the whole story and that she will buy it back from him after he had bought it. The man bought it for four centime and she bought it for three back. Keawe discovered this and convinces another man to buy it for two centime with the promise, that Keawe will buy it back from him for one centime. The man who shall bought it for Keawe is a greedy and wicked man and as he had the bottle he wouldn´t sell it to Keawe. The wicked man didn´t care that he went to hell, because with this bottle he could wish himself everything he wanted. Now Keawe and Kokua are free and nobody of them must go to hell when he dies.

English reported speech (backshift of tenses)?
Ich habe eine Frage zu folgendem Satz:
Walter: “I have been cleaning the house for the entire day, that's why I needed a break.”
Ich würde das so umformen:
Walter claimed that he had been cleaning the house for the entire day, and that he had needed a break.
Und gibt es irgendwelche Regeln, wenn es zwei Tenses in einem Satz gibt?
