German: Begeistern (DW)



Today we have another great post from Deutsche Welle covering different uses of 'begeistern':

Was man leicht verwechselt: sich FÜR etw. begeistern/JDN. FÜR etwas begeistern/VON etw. begeistert sein

Wir versuchen mal, die Unterschiede etwas klarer zu machen:


sich FÜR etw. begeistern = ein großes Interesse für etwas haben; Freude an etwas haben (meist, wenn es um Hobbys und allgemeine Interessen geht)
Bsp.
Ich begeistere mich für die Malerei.
Für Autos kann ich mich nicht wirklich begeistern.

jdn. für etw. begeistern = jemandes Interesse an etwas wecken
Bsp.
Mit meinen Erzählungen habe ich sie fürs Skilaufen begeistert.

VON etw. begeistert sein = von etwas entzückt sein; etwas toll finden
Bsp.
Das Publikum war von Justin Timberlakes Performance begeistert.
Ich war ganz begeistert, wie nett er war.

Begeisterung = große Freude; Enthusiasmus
Bsp.
Ich lerne mit Begeisterung Deutsch.
Das Publikum brüllte vor Begeisterung.
Sein Auftritt hat für viel Begeisterung gesorgt.

BALD = in kurzer Zeit (von einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt aus gesehen in die ZUKUNFT)
BALD fange ich an, Sport zu machen. Wirklich!
Ich bin BALD fertig.
Ich reise BALD nach Kanada.
FRÜH = zu einer frühen Stunde
Musstest du mich so FRÜH wecken? Ich bin noch total müde!
Ich hasse es, FRÜH aufzustehen!
Meine Kinder sind immer schon ganz FRÜH wach und wollen spielen. unsure emoticon
FRÜH = vorzeitig im Bezug auf einen bestimmten Zeitpunkt; früher als normal
Du willst immer so FRÜH nach Hause gehen!
Das Geschäft schließt samstags immer schon ganz FRÜH.
So FRÜH haben wir noch nie mit dem Meeting begonnen.
Ich liebe es, FRÜH ins Bett zu gehen!
