hallo :)

Habe eine ha aber komme leider nicht voran.
undzwar muss ich den oben genannten text lesen und rausschreiben was für den autor neu für den amerikaner also what is new about the american according to the author schreiben..

hier der text: What then is the American, this new man? He is an American, who, leaving behind him all his ancient prejudices and manners, receives new ones from the new mode of life he has embraced, the new government he obeys, and the new rank he holds. He becomes an American by being received in the broad lap of our great Alma Mater. Here individuals of all nations are melted into a new race of men, whose labours and posterity will one day cause great changes in the world. Americans are the western pilgrims, who are carrying along with them that great mass of arts, sciences, vigour, and industry which began long since in the east; they will finish the great circle. The Americans were once scattered all over Europe; here they are incorporated into one of the finest systems of population which has ever appeared, and which will hereafter become distinct by the power of the different climates they inhabit. The American ought therefore to love this country much better than that wherein either he or his forefathers were born. Here the rewards of his industry follow with equal steps the progress of his labour; his labour is founded on the basis of nature, self-interest; can it want a stronger allurement? Wives and children, who before in vain demanded of him a morsel of bread, now, fat and frolicsome, gladly help their father to clear those fields whence exuberant crops are to arise to feed and to clothe them all; without any part being claimed, either by a despotic prince, a rich abbot, or a mighty lord. Here religion demands but little of him; a small voluntary salary to the minister and gratitude to God; can he refuse these? The American is a new man, who acts upon new principles; he must therefore entertain new ideas, and form new opinions.

Kann mir einer helfen? Und was meinen die eigentlich mit this new man und the americans were once scattered all over europe?

DANKE!

Zu deiner letzten Frage:

Dieser neue Mensch - die Amerikaner - waren einst in alle Winde zerstreut in Europa. Oder anders gesagt: Die Amerikaner stammten eigentlich aus allen Teilen Europas.

Ich habe mal zehn wichtige Aussagen aus dem Text hervorgehoben; wenn ich mich richtig erinnere, stammt der Text von Michel-Guillaume Jean de Crèvecoer aus dem Jahr 1780; damals hat man noch etwas anders als heute geschrieben und gesprochen.

Du solltest daher die zehn Aussagen in eigene n Worten wiedergeben und dann diese Sätze zu dem geforderten Aufsatz verbinden.
