Немецкий моряк пытается общаться на английском — Учите английский — Рекламный ролик

Немецкий моряк дежурит в радиорубке на корабле.

Неожиданно через радио слышится встревоженный голос. Сигнал о помощи.

«Help! We are sinking!»

Невозмутимый моряк, неправильно расслышав последнее слово, задает вопрос:

«What are you thinking about?»

English Joke

Teacher: Why are you late?
Student: There was a man who lost a hundred dollar bill.
Teacher: That’s nice. Were you helping him look for it?
Student: No. I was standing on it.

“What are you thinking” vs “What are you thinking about”

Someone’s very quiet and sitting alone. I go over and ask them,

You look very quiet. What are you thinking?

Is this correct? Or should I say instead,

Or are both correct and can be used interchangeably?

1 Answer 1

Here was my first impression:

Q: What are you thinking about?

This asks for the particular matter that’s being thought. You don’t really have an idea about the person’s thoughts.

A1: Oh, nothing.
A2: A friend.
A3: How we used to play under the tree by the river when we were kids, remember?

It slightly differs from

This ask for the details about the matter that’s being thought. In other words, you know (or think you know) that the person is thinking about X, and you want to know the details. For example, you know (or think) the person is devising a plan, and you want the specifics:

A1: We pitch him away: cutter, cutter, slider. A2: I’m calling Joe in the morning to have him move the money.
A3: That I should start looking for a new job.

So in your scenario, if I haven’t talked to the person, and I was curious about their thoughts, I’d ask, “What are you thinking about?”

If I felt like they were thinking intently about something (they get quiet when they’re planning something, for example), I could ask, “What are you thinking?”

Anyway, this was just my first impression. I imagine some might disagree, or find additional usages. Let’s see!

Present continuous and present simple 2 (продолжение)

Изучите следующую ситуацию:

Мы используем формы continuous для действий и событий, которые начались, но не закончились (they are eating — они едят / it is raining — идет дождь и др.). Некоторые глаголы (Например, know и like) обычно (!) не используются таким образом. Мы не говорим ‘I am knowing’ или ‘they are liking’; мы говорим ‘I know’, ‘they like’.

Следующие глаголы обычно не используются в present continuous:

What you THINK you know about Canada vs. what you REALLY know

There has been much debate between Americans and Canadians about who is smarter and whose world view is narrower. I’ve found that there are several sides to that coin, and that while it’s true that many Americans don’t know much about Canada, neither do many Canadians!

Let’s see how well you’re acquainted with the True North. A couple of these questions are stumpers, but the average North American ought to do pretty well on this quiz. Good luck!

5 things to know about Canadian Thanksgiving

Posted October 7, 2020

Skip to:

About to celebrate your first Thanksgiving in Canada? Here are a few things you should know about this holiday:

It is held every second Monday of October

Yes, you read it right. Canada celebrates Thanksgiving in October, not November as our American neighbours do (they celebrate it on the fourth Thursday in November). This has something to do with our geographical location. Canada is further north and so the harvest comes earlier, which is why we celebrate it earlier (Three ways Canadian Thanksgiving differs from American Thanksgiving, Carolyn Ali, Inside Vancouver).

But before it came to be celebrated on the second Monday of October, Canadians had many different Thanksgiving celebrations. According to the Canadian Encyclopedia, Thanksgiving celebrations were held either late October or early November. The earliest thanksgivings in history date back to the First Nations’ festivals of completion and abundance of the harvest, and the celebration of explorer Sir Martin Frobisher’s safe arrival in the eastern Arctic in 1578. In 1879, Parliament declared November 6 as a day of Thanksgiving, making it a national holiday. However, after the First World War, Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day (November 11) were celebrated in the same week. This pushed the Parliament to move it to the second Monday of October in 1957.

It’s all about the harvest

While American Thanksgiving traces its roots to the first celebration in 1621 when the Pilgrims held a feast at the Plymouth Plantation, Canadian Thanksgiving is traditionally about celebrating the harvest. In the 1957 official declaration of Thanksgiving, the Canadian Parliament announced that Thanksgiving would be “a day of general thanksgiving to the almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada had been blessed.” Today, both Thanksgiving celebrations are generally regarded as an opportunity to express gratitude for all the good things in our lives and to enjoy a wonderful feast with our family and friends.

It is a statutory holiday

Thanksgiving is one of the eight statutory holidays observed in Manitoba. This means you get to enjoy a long weekend with your family and friends! Take note that since it is an official holiday, most stores are closed or operate on a limited schedule on this day. If you’re planning on running errands, malling or shopping during the long weekend, better do it on Saturday or Sunday, or check store schedules before you go.

Turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie

Canadian Thanksgiving feasts usually consist of roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie. But don’t let this stop you from making the spread more colorful (and flavourful) with your own traditional dishes. Many Canadian families celebrate with food like dim sum, ham, slaw, and other treats. This is just another sign of how multicultural Canada really is.

It is not as closely associated with shopping

While there may be a few “Thanksgiving Week Sales” in Canada during the weekend, the biggest shopping day is on Boxing Day, which is on December 26. In the U.S., Thanksgiving signals the coming of Black Friday (which is the next day). This event ushers in the start of the Christmas shopping season. Many people go shopping because major retailers offer big discounts and special offers on this day.

What are you thinking about? Канада

как правильно: what do you или what are you thinking about

Переводы пользователей ( 3 )

What are you thinking about? — если вы интересуетесь, о чем человек думает в данный момент.

Комментарий переводчика

What do you think about. — если вы спрашиваете его мнение о чем-либо.

если «Что ты думаешь о. «. -What do you think.

если » О чем ты думаешь/задумался?» — What are you thinking about .

Глаголы умственной деятельности и чувственного восприятия не употребляются в продолженном времени, поэтому what do you think

Обсуждение ( 9 )

А здесь и как раз и спрашивают мнение.

Что вы думаете об.

Не совсем. К М имеет в виду: о чем ты думаешь.

А по моему в этом нет разницы. Все дело в том, что в этом варианте нет ошибки.
Разрешается спрашивать: Что вы думаете об ?? Или О чем вы думаете?? Причем не зависимо это касается одушевленного рода или неодушевленного рода..

В английском есть разница из-за употребляемого времени. Для вопроса «о чем ты думаешь» в данный момент нужно употреблять Present Continuous, а для вопроса «что ты думаешь о чем-либо» Present Simple.

А звучат вопросы (если бы не изменения в окончаниях глаголов) одинаково: what do you think about my boyfriend? — что ты думаешь о моем парне? Но: You look worried. What are you thinking about? — Ты выгладишь взволнованно. О чем ты думаешь?

По окончаниям и форме, в которой стоит «to be» всегда можно понять, что подразумевается.

А-а.. Ясно. Это я проецировал грамматику русского языка, на английский язык.

Ovechkin knows what Canadiens are thinking

ARLINGTON, Va. — Alex Ovechkin remembers what it’s like to be down 3-1 in a series, so he thinks he knows exactly how the Montreal Canadiens will come out in Game 5 tonight at Verizon Center.

Dogged. Determined. Desperate.

The Washington Capitals’ captain also remembers how Philadelphia two years ago and the New York Rangers last year were unable to match his team’s push in Game 5 and that’s how the series turned. Washington eventually lost to the Flyers in seven, but beat the Rangers in seven.

Ovechkin talked a lot about what he expects tonight from the Canadiens and his own team during his five-minute session with the media this morning at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. Here is a portion of what he had to say:

«When you are losing 3-1, you think, ‘Jesus, why did this happen to our team?’ We talked to the guys and they didn’t want to go on vacation, or go home. They wanted to play. This is a situation where everybody has to be ready for a fight.» Alex Ovechkin

Q: In the last two playoff years you guys have been very good at coming from behind. So do you feel you have the killer instinct this time around?

«In playoffs you always want to win. It doesn’t matter what score you win the series by, you just fight. The last two years it was a pretty good experience for us, but this year we don’t want to be in that situation, losing 3-1.»

Q: When you see teams like Philadelphia last night that is moving on and other teams on the verge, does it create a sense of urgency knowing these other teams are starting to rest?

«When you win the series of course you have more time to rest, but I think for us it doesn’t matter who wins or not in other series. We have to watch ourselves. We just watched some highlights from last night and we’ll be ready for tonight. Everybody knows how important the game is tonight and if we’re going to win it’s going to be pretty good for us. We’re going to be rested and have more time to recover.»

Q: What did you take from your experiences of being down 3-1 the last two years?

«When you are losing 3-1, you think, ‘Jesus, why did this happen to our team?’ We talked to the guys and they didn’t want to go on vacation, or go home. They wanted to play. This is a situation where everybody has to be ready for a fight.»

Q: Does the way you had to scratch and claw when you were down 3-1 come into your mind tonight when you think about what to expect from the Canadiens?

«The first 10 minutes is going to be very important. I think they’re going to push us pretty hard and try to score goals, and if they score it’ll be mentally good for them. We have to push back and play our game.»

Q: Have you guys played your best in the series yet?

«We have to play our best game every night, but how I have said before, everybody has to improve every night. Last game some guys played good, but now they have to play better. You don’t have to be satisfied with one game.»

Q: Considering some of the weird penalties the Canadiens have taken, do you think you’re in their heads?

«I think it’s just emotional. When you play with your home crowd and you’re going to lose it’s going to be a little bit frustrating. It happens. It’s emotions. It’s the playoffs.»

Q: It’s Jaroslav Halak in net tonight. Does the team prepare differently for him than it did for Carey Price?

«No, we have to play the same and get traffic in front of the net. Like I said a couple of games ago, he leaves lots of rebounds. Guys like Knubs (Mike Knuble), Gordo (Boyd Gordon), Chimer (Jason Chimera) and Brads (Matt Bradley), they have had pretty good chances to score goals.»

Q: The way you guys have scored against Halak, is the seed of doubt planted in his mind?

«We’ll see tonight. You never know what is going to happen.»

Five Facts About Canada You Might Not Know

We don’t live in igloos!

1. We don’t live in igloos!

Did you expect to come up here, just a few miles North and see people in igloos, hunting seals and wearing enormous, awkward fur coats? Really? Sorry to disappoint you, but Canada’s climate is pretty similar to the U.S. — a little bit colder overall, but we definitely don’t have polar bears for pets up here.

And even the people who once lived in igloos, the Inuit, haven’t done so for decades. At least not in the igloos we think of as igloos (snow houses). Technically, the word for igloo is actually the Inuit word for house, so we all live in igluit (the plural form of iglu)

Sure, a traditional hunter up North might build a snow house for hunting, but generally, most Northern dwellers are too busy watching their big screen t.v.’s and texting on their smart phones to worry about building an igloo.

Mounties Then

Mounties Today

2. Most Mounties don’t r >

Most Royal Canadian Mounties ride in cars, not on horses. Sure, there is a troop that parades around on some horses once a year, to some fancy music, for the tourists, but most of the RCMP just drive cars, like any other police force. I mean, horses would get kind of spooked if they were to have to chase criminals in the city. And it would be kind of hard to catch a drug-dealing crackhead on a horse, wouldn’t it?

The image of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police is well-known, though, and that is another reason it is kept alive. In fact, the RCMP made a controversial licensing deal with Walt Disney to control who has access to their image. They have a website that sells products with their image, called the Mounty Shop. Since 2002, they have been able to raise over one million dollars for programs within Canadian communities.

So, when you feature Canada, don’t think that we have all these serious looking police men riding around with big hats on these big animals, policing our city streets. We don’t. That would be just weird, especially for 2012.

Jim Carrey on Canada

Canada is Big

3. We are very big

We are a very big country. In fact, the second biggest country in the world. Our square mileage is 3,855,103 square miles, which is six percent of the earth’s total land. So, if you have a great aunt twice removed who moved to Canada in 1945, there’s a big pretty chance we don’t know her. And if you are coming here for a holiday, don’t expect to see most of Canada in one trip. Unless you’re planning on staying for six months. We have many big, cosmopolitan cities, mountains, beaches, prairies.

Famous Canadians

4. A lot of talent comes from Canada

Much of Hollywood’s talent comes from Canada. Here is a who’s who of Canadian talent, people you probably didn’t know were Canadian. (If you did, kudos to you.)

Many Canadians with talent do end up moving from here, in order to pursue bigger opportunities down South, but they do not forget their Canadian roots.

5. We make fun of people who know nothing about Canada

We make fun of people who don’t know anything about us. In fact, there’s kind of a cottage industry based around this phenomena: there used to be a television show that went around asking Americans questions about Canada, called «Talking to Americans.» Americans were asked questions about Canada, and some pretty ridiculous answers followed. Instead of being offended, we just found it funny.

I hope you had fun with these five facts about Canada that everyone should know. If you knew all of these, no one will ever make fun of you. If you didn’t, well, now you do!

I am really board to read about you. I have been almost world travel. I am traveling every year and I keep budget for traveling. This year I was thinking about Canada but. ………. You don’t have respect for customers. Just tell me what do you have. No Business. No jobs. There is a lot to say.

@Wba, we do have some great ministries here. Thanks for the comment and I don’t think anyone would want to go with those igloos, ha ha! Take care!

You definitely have the world’s best national anthem, I love it when I hear, (Oh Canada) at the Olympics or at a hockey game. Some of my favorite Christian ministries are also based in Canada. I went to some revival meetings I’ll never forget at the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship. I think those igloos could cut down those household bills though, but the family may not agree!

Like many Americans my visits to Canada are limited. I have been to Canada when visiting Niagara Falls and when my son attended SUNY Plattdsburgh we visited Montreal.

I can certainly understand the myths surrounding Canada. We have them even in the US. No matter where you travel when you meet someone and tell them you’re from NY they will say, «I have a cousin in NYC his name is so and so, do you know him?» Really? Yes.

This was a fun, factual hub.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

WP, yes, I understand about the road signs. We were on metric up until the 70’s and then we switched over. A lot of people were upset about that. I feel the same way when I have been to the States — confused on road signs.

About becoming a Canadian citizen — we’d love to have you! Have a wonderful day.


7 years ago from The Garden of Eugene (Oregon)

I get to go to Canada now and then (mostly Toronto and surrounding area, but a couple times to BC as well). The first thing I usually notice are the road signs — the metric system and French words make me feel like I’m in a foreign land. Especially the metric system. My truck is 13’6″ tall and all of the sudden I see a bridge ahead that’s 4.3m!! Can I make it under? My math is not so good at 100 kph (at least we have km on the speedometer in my truck so I can tell how fast I’m going. )

I’d really like to see a hub about becoming a Canadian citizen. Sometimes I get so fed up with the US, I’d like to know what it would take to stay up north one of these days.

It is also worth mentioning that the last time the USA tried to invade Canada, we kicked the living crap outa them .. and went on to burn down the White House. Now I know all you Americans are going to have a tough time believing this, and I am sure they didn’t teach it to you in school .. but you can just go to google and do a search for «the war of 1812» ..

I think it’s neat what you said about not being offended but thinking it’s funny what Americans answer about Canada. That’s cool. I loved your hub. I’m not familiar with the stereotype about Canadians living in igloos. Interesting about all the actors, etc. come to the US from Canada. I have several friends from Canada. Sounds like a really neat place. Hub voted up and many others!

Morning prairieprincess. over the years I have travelled much of Canada and the US and found most people to be knowledgeable of Canada. Yes there are some along the way who knew very little as well. Well written and I brought a laugh to me this morning so thank you for sharing with us.

Keep the igloo warm and thanks for the smiles.
