Write a short text characterizing yourself or someone you know. Make sure to include the following characteristics when characterizing.


  • Appearance
  • Behavior
  • Personality
  • Thoughts
Antwort anzeigen

Antwort

  • Appearance:
    My name is Melanie and I am 17 years old. I have long blonde hair that I love to put up in a ponytail. My eyes have the common color brown, but they are pretty big. Moreover, I am only 155 cm tall.
  • Behavior:
    I would describe myself as ambitious and motivated, which stresses me out sometimes. So they are good and bad qualities at the same time. At uni, I volunteer to help new students find their way around, so that they have an easier time to settle in.
  • Personality:
    Generally, I am a nice person, but I can also be very direct. I hate when people ramble and don't tell me what exactly it is they want to tell me.
  • Thoughts:
    I always think that people think that I am trying to be better than them, but that is not true. I simply try my best to deliver high-quality work.


Note that this is a task for the student to get a feeling for what kind of characteristics exist. Also remember that this is an example.

List the ways in which Cinderella is characterized in the following extract.


Once upon a time, there was a beautiful girl named Cinderella. She lived with her wicked stepmother and two stepsisters. They treated Cinderella very badly. One day, they were invited for a grand ball in the king’s palace. But Cinderella’s stepmother would not let her go. Cinderella was made to sew new party gowns for her stepmother and stepsisters, and curl their hair. They then went to the ball, leaving Cinderella alone at home.

Cinderella felt very sad and began to cry. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appeared and said, “Don’t cry, Cinderella! I will send you to the ball!” But Cinderella was sad. She said, “I don’t have a gown to wear for the ball!” The fairy godmother waved her magic wand and changed Cinderella’s old clothes into a beautiful new gown! The fairy godmother then touched Cinderella’s feet with the magic wand. And lo! She had beautiful glass slippers! “How will I go to the grand ball?” asked Cinderella. The fairy godmother found six mice playing near a pumpkin, in the kitchen. She touched them with her magic wand and the mice became four shiny black horses and two coachmen and the pumpkin turned into a golden coach. Cinderella was overjoyed and set off for the ball in the coach drawn by the six black horses. Before leaving. the fairy godmother said, “Cinderella, this magic will only last until midnight! You must reach home by then!”

Translate the following text into German.


What if machines were better at driving trucks? What if machines were better servers at McDonald’s? What if robots would do your taxes for you? 

Machines are taking the world by storm and the impact of Artificial Intelligence is increasing labor productivity by up to 40%. 

Robot production is growing drastically, as robots are becoming cheaper to produce. Companies are expanding their investment in Artificial Intelligence, year after year. 

Can Artificial Intelligence replace mankind in the economy by developing the same power as the human brain or, in other words, will a robot take your job?

It’s an amazing time: driverless cars, drones delivering packages and chatbots taking fast food orders. In fact, this trend is even called “the next industrial revolution”. 

And it does not come without a lot of fear concerning job losses and means of making a living. Of course, technology will eliminate many jobs – it has always done so.

Predictions about those job losses range from a few million to over a billion. But while AI will make some jobs obsolete, it will make way for other jobs in other areas. Even today, there is a huge number of technology jobs that did not exist ten years ago. There is no reason to believe that the need for humans to create and manage new technology will decrease. Humans create and humans control. Robots and AI are tools that can be used when given the right instructions. The point is that humans and technology must work together. Robots could never replace the need for creative thinking, problem-solving and teamwork.

Many of the once tedious tasks performed by humans are now performed by Artificial Intelligence, allowing professionals to focus on more advisory roles that bring greater value to clients.

AI’s impact will be felt everywhere – and the global economy will get a 15.7 trillion-dollar boost from AI, as it shapes entire industries.  

Antwort anzeigen

Antwort

Was wäre, wenn Maschinen bessere Lkw-Fahrer wären? Was wäre, wenn Maschinen bei McDonald's bessere Bediener wären? Was wäre, wenn Roboter deine Steuern für dich übernehmen würden? 

Maschinen erobern die Welt im Sturm und die Auswirkungen der Technologien der Künstlichen Intelligenz erhöhen die Arbeitsproduktivität um bis zu 40%. 

Die Roboterproduktion wächst drastisch, da Roboter immer billiger zu produzieren sind. Die Unternehmen erweitern die Investitionen in die Künstliche Intelligenz von Jahr zu Jahr. 

Kann Künstliche Intelligenz die Menschheit ersetzen, indem sie die gleiche Kraft entwickelt wie das menschliche Gehirn oder anders gesagt, wird ein Roboter deinen Job übernehmen?

Es ist eine unglaubliche Zeit: fahrerlose Autos, Drohnen, die Pakete liefern, und Chatbots, die Fast-Food-Bestellungen entgegennehmen. Tatsächlich wird dieser Trend sogar als "die nächste industrielle Revolution" bezeichnet. 

Und es kommt nicht ohne viel Angst vor dem Verlust von Arbeitsplätzen und den Möglichkeiten, seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Natürlich wird die Technologie viele Arbeitsplätze vernichten - das hat sie immer getan.

Die Prognosen über diese Arbeitsplatzverluste reichen von einigen Millionen bis über eine Milliarde. Aber während die KI einige Arbeitsplätze überflüssig macht, wird sie den Weg für noch mehr Arbeitsplätze in anderen Bereichen frei machen. Sogar heute gibt es eine Vielzahl von Technologiejobs, die es vor zehn Jahren noch nicht gab. Es gibt keinen Grund zu der Annahme, dass die Notwendigkeit für den Menschen, neue Technologien zu entwickeln und zu verwalten, abnehmen wird. Der Mensch erschafft und kontrolliert. Roboter und KI sind Werkzeuge, die verwendet werden können, wenn sie die richtigen Anweisungen erhalten. Der Punkt ist, dass Mensch und Technik zusammenarbeiten müssen. Roboter könnten niemals die Notwendigkeit von kreativem Denken, Problemlösen und Teamarbeit ersetzen.

Viele der einst mühsamen Aufgaben des Menschen werden heute von der künstlichen Intelligenz übernommen, so dass sich die Fachleute mehr auf Beratungsaufgaben konzentrieren können, die den Kunden einen höheren Mehrwert bringen.

Die Auswirkungen von KI werden überall spürbar sein - und die Weltwirtschaft wird von KI einen Schub von 15,7 Billionen Dollar erhalten, da sie ganze Branchen prägt.

Frage

Read the following text about chinstrap penguins and answer the questions below in complete sentences.


  1. How is the island, where the chinstrap penguins nest, described in the text?
  2. How are the chinstrap penguins described?
  3. What did the scientists discover?
  4. What are the reasons for the decline in chinstrap penguin populations?

Just north of the Antarctic Peninsula, there’s a small, ice-covered island shaped like an elephant’s head. Each year, despite brutal winds and a landscape of crags, cliffs, and glaciers, hundreds of thousands of chinstrap penguins manage to nest on these shores, creating a living sea of black-and-white feathers.


“They’re like little mountaineers,” says Noah Strycker, an ornithologist and graduate student at New York’s Stony Brook University. “They climb up 300 to 400 feet in some places.”


But when Strycker and his fellow scientists spent 11 days counting chinstrap nests as part of a scientific survey this January, they discovered tens of thousands of penguins were missing.


“Comparing it to the number from 50 years ago, we’ve found a 56 percent drop in chinstrap penguin nests, which is rather shocking,” says Strycker.


Due to its remote location and challenging conditions, the last census of the chinstrap penguins of Elephant Island was taken in 1971, and that survey identified 123,000 nests. Strycker and his team found less than half of that number.


While the recent expedition did not research the causes of such a precipitous drop, other researchers have found links to climate change, says Strycker.


For instance, a 2016 study found that over the past 40 years, tiny crustaceans called krill have declined by up to 80 percent in some Antarctic seas, possibly as a result of warming water temperatures. Krill are the foundation of the Antarctic food web: Chinstraps eat the shrimp-like creatures, as do small fish (which penguins also eat).


(Article was taken from National Geographic and was written by Jason Bittel on 11/02/2020)

Antwort

  1. The island, where the chinstrap penguins nest, is described as an ice-covered island that is shaped like an elephant's head. Moreover, the landscape is characterized by cliffs, crags and glaciers. Brutal winds are also common on the island.
  2. The chinstrap penguins are described as mountaineers that can climb up 300 to 400 feet. Furthermore, they have white and black feathers.
  3. The scientists discovered that the population of the chinstrap penguins has declined by 56 percent compared to 1971.
  4. Some researches believe that the decline in chinstrap penguin populations is a result of climate change. The penguins' main source of food, called Krill, has declined by 80 percent due to warmer water temperatures. Therefore, the chinstrap penguins might not have enough food to survive and consequently, die out.

Chronic kidney disease affects one in 10 adults worldwide, and in more prosperous countries, it’s often associated with diseases such as diabetes or hypertension. But in the past few decades, young people—primarily agricultural workers from very hot, rural, poor parts of the world—have been showing up at clinics with advanced stages of kidney failure that could not be tied to other conditions.

Read the following paragraph and summarize it in English.


Das neue Coronavirus, das seinen Ursprung im chinesischen Wuhan hat, wurde mittlerweile in mehr als 15 Ländern gemeldet, darunter auch in Deutschland und den USA. In den Nachrichten kommt man an der aktuellen Entwicklung der Pandemie gar nicht vorbei. Währenddessen treibt größtenteils unbeachtet ein anderer, jährlich wiederkehrender Bekannter sein Unwesen: die Grippe. Allein in den USA hat die aktuelle Grippesaison bereits 8.200 Menschenleben gefordert.


Mittlerweile gibt es an zahlreichen großen Flughäfen Coronaviren-Screenings und etliche Fluggesellschaften haben ihre Flüge nach China ganz gestrichen. Für alle, die trotzdem mit dem Flugzeug reisen müssen, sind diese Präventivmaßnahmen aber kein großer Trost. Schließlich gibt es wenig Möglichkeiten, einer niesenden Person aus dem Weg zu gehen, wenn man in einem fliegenden Metallkasten auf seinem Sitz ausharren muss.

Example:


The new coronavirus is one of the number one topics on the news, as it has been found in more than 15 countries. It originated in Wuhan, but has even reached countries like Germany or the US. However, nobody talks about another virus that comes back every year and has already killed more than eight thousand people in 2020: the flu.

Many precautions have been taken to keep the coronavirus from spreading, such as health screenings at airports and flight cancellations to China. Nevertheless, people who have to travel by plane can't take those kinds of precautions, but have to try to avoid everyone who is sneezing.

Explain to a German speaker in two sentences what happened in the following text.


Susie had been enjoying her day off until she came home. She wanted to connect her phone to her speakers in order to listen to her music while cleaning the house. After searching forever, she finally had to accept that her phone was gone. Someone must have stolen her phone on the train home. Luckily, she signed up for a service that locates your phone whenever you cannot find it. She nervously put in the details and was surprised that the phone was located right outside her house. She hectically rushed outside and found it on the ground. Laughingly, she realized that she must have dropped it when looking for her keys.

Frage

How many transitional words are used in the following text?


To sum up, I learned that a word is not always usable in every context although the translation of the word is the one you are looking for. Sometimes, there are two different words or more to explain one thing. But, they always need to be differentiated in order to use them in the right context. Consequently, you cannot just look up a word and take the first given one to create your sentence. You need to look out for the contextual meaning. Additionally, I learned that people coming from the same country often do the same mistakes because they connect them to their mother-tongue and, therefore, use the word that sounds more similar to the word they already know.
