    他的加入使我们有希望赢得比赛。

    his joining makes us hopeful to win the game.


    his joining makes it possible for us to win the game.



    一定要用下面一句话吗?感觉下面这句非常不自然!

    我想知道在英文中上面一句是否绝对错误。 如果2个都正确,那么他们听起来会有细微的差别吗?





    对于上面那句我想出了一个改正的方法:
    his joining makes us hopeful to win the game. 换成 his joining gives us a chance to win the game.

    这样改正就正确了吧??

    Hello Thunder's Color! Perhaps you can say "his joining has made us hopeful of winning the game".

    I also wonder whether his two sentences acceptable, or simply wrong?

    Do you mean these two?
    his joining makes us hopeful to win the game.
    his joining makes it possible for us to win the game.


    The 1st has been made much better by Ghabi in post #2. The 2nd is not a real translation of the original Chinese (他的加入使我们有希望赢得比赛). I'd translate the sentence as:
    His joining has given us hope of winning the game.
