Interpretation1.428 Words / ~ pages Journal de lecture Thierry Lenain - Un pacte avec le diable Table des matières · Pourquoi j’ai choisi le lecture · Resumées du chapitres 1-7 · Critique personelle 1. Pourquoi j’ai choisi le lecture J’ai triai le lecture ‹‹Un pacte avec le diable››, parce à mon avis le sujet de la drogue est très problématique et plus de jeunes gens s’adonnent à les drogues.

Presentation1.992 Words / ~7 pages Contrastive linguistics and language teaching I. Introduction As you already know, Contrastive linguistics is a branch of linguistics which seeks to compare the sounds, grammars and vocabularies of two languages with the aim of describing the similarities and differences between them. Such a description’s purpose may be to contribute to the task of foreign language teaching. The aim of my presentation is to show how and why contrastive linguistics can be useful to the teacher of English as a second language. First I will give you a short overview over today’s presentation. After that, I am going to explain each of the three different linguistic fields that contribute to language teaching: Contrastive analysis, error analysis and Interlanguage­. I am also going to analyze, in what way each one of these topics is useful for a…[show more]

Term paper4.732 Words / ~13 pages 4.3 Neuaubing/Fre­iham as a model district The following example shows, how an existing area with mixed zoning of residential buildings and commercial property as well as a development area can transform to a district with balanced CO2 data. With todays technologies it would already be possible to make this area a real model district, with the reasonable use of building, energy and traffic technology. This scenario covers a period of 30 years, in which the modification should be completed (Siemens, sustainable urban infrastructur­e (2009), P. 49). Munich and its southern surroundings have a huge reservoir of ecologically friendly energies. In a depth of 3000 to 5000 meters, there are inexhaustible hot water sources with temperatures reaching up to 140 degree Celsius. This thermal energy can be used for heating and energy…[show more]

Term paper1.664 Words / ~ pages Ludwig-Maximi­lians­-Uni­versität München Institut für Englische Philologie Early Modern Revenge Tragedy SS 2015 Dozent: , BA, 11257192 Comic relief in Hamlet’s Act 5 Scene 1 Definition and function of comic relief Comic relief scene in Hamlet: the graveyard scene 5.1 (Scene summary and use of humour) Overall effect on the play An often recurring feature of William Shakespeare’s tragedies is the presence of at least one humorous scene in an otherwise serious play. This is called comic relief and is intended to release some of the dramatic tension. After the murder of Polonius, Ophelia’s suicide and Claudius’ plot to get Hamlet killed the tension of the play is at its climax and in need for some emotional release. This way Shakespeare could also delay the final confrontation and save some suspense to keep the audience interested…[show more]
Exam thesis29.299 Words / ~121 pages Figure 24: Relative number of mentions (in %) of the strategy of IFIDs in Australian and American English (December 2008). At first glance, it seems that only marginal differences are observable. Yet, some interesting results became visible. Generally, American English native speakers made use of less IFIDs than Australians across all situations, as is clearly illustrated by the chart. The case of S3 (Manager), in which invariably all respondents from both target groups explicitly apologized, was surprising in light of the fact that the situation was characterized by a higher social status of the offending person. Nevertheless, it seemed to call for an explicit apology among all participants of the study. The results found in S1 (Professor), in which Australian English speakers showed a significantly higher employment…[show more]

Interpretation1.161 Words / ~3 pages Gedichtvergle­ich von Thomas Hardys The Darkling Thrush und William Wordworths Hark! Tis the Thrush In the following, William Wordsworth’s sonnet “Hark! ‘tis the Thrush” from 1838 and Thomas Hardy’s poem “The Darkling Thrush” from 1900 will be briefly analyzed and then compared with regard to the dominant word fields and imagery as well as to the way they deal with the Romantic concept of nature and its effect on the human soul. In Wordsworth’s poem, the lyrical I – supposedly a man – listens to the caroling of a thrush and gains confidence and strength as a result. Concerning the content, it can be divided into three units: In the first five lines, he describes the thrush as a very strong and loving animal which isn’t much affected by any wind or weather and still keeps on caroling. He then addresses the thrush and thanks it for having…[show more]
Essay567 Words / ~ pages Bevölkerung 2050- Sollte man sich Sorgen machen? Was hat die Geburtenrate, die Lebenserwartu­ng und die Migration gemeinsam?
