Common English Grammar Mistakes - 常見的錯誤英文文法

Submitted by Jenny on

常見的錯誤英文文法,甚至是當英文為母語的人有時也會搞錯。 以下是其中一些。

  1. 你會將逗號 "," 放在 ”and” 的前面嗎? 例如"We took out our books and pencils, and began to study." 這是不應在 “and” 的前面加 “,”。"We took out our books and pencils and began to study.”
  2. 對或錯? : "The choir walked up the stage, then they sang." 是的,這句話是正確的。 在這種情況下, 使用單詞 "then" 去描述在另一個事件後發生另一個事件,是正確的。執行比較時,您需要使用這個詞"than"。 例如: "Mary is taller than John."。
  3. 你說 "She can play piano easier than you can"或or "She can play piano more easily than you can?"答案是第二句, "She can play piano more easily than you can."。因此,"walk quickly" 而不是 "walk quicker."。
