大家常收到学员留言,不知道该怎样用一些近义词,下面就为大家讲解一下。

1.期待: Expect or look forward to?

"Love your shows! Expect new shows!"  很喜欢你们的节目,期待新节目!
这里,不该用expect,而应该用look forward to。
"Love your shows! Look forwad to new shows!"  很喜欢你们的节目,期待新节目!

为什么呢?

Expect指的是基于标准、要求的期待;应该发生。
A boss expects a lot from his employees。老板对员工有高要求、高期待

Look forward to指的是期待、愿望、盼望。

I'm really looking forward to the weekend: 我好期待周末


2.开灯: Turn on or open?

中文惯性,说“开灯”,很容易脱口而出“open the light"。
Can you open the light? 应该是Can you turn on the light? 

怎么区分?

电器、电子设备用turn on:
Turn on the light: 开灯
Turn on the TV: 开电视
Turn on the phone: 开手机
Devices: 设备其它类型的东西,用open:
Open the door:开门
Open the box: 开盒子
Open your eyes: 睁开眼睛对应“开",“关”是turn off或者close。

3.名片:Name card or business card?
Name card是Chinglish, 英语可不是这样说的呢!
正确的是business card
Business card在口语中,也可以简化为"card"。
Do you have a name card? 应该说成Do you have a business card? 或者Do you have a card?

4.高:Tall or high?
Tall形容人,high形容楼房?错啦!
记住:
Tall用来形容人、楼房、树High形容山、墙、高跟鞋
Yao ming is very high.应该说成Yao ming is very tall.

The building is very high.应该说成The building is very tall.

The trees are very high.应该说成The trees are very tall.

The mountain is very tall.应该说成The mountain is very high。

High heels: 高跟鞋
These heels are so high。这双鞋的鞋跟好高啊。

5.Fun or funny?
常见错误:
The party last night was so funny! 应该说成The party last night was so fun!

怎么区分?
Fun: 好玩儿、有乐趣、有意思
We had so much fun together: 大家一起玩儿得好开心!
It's so fun to learn English! 学英语很有乐趣!

Funny: 搞笑
Stephen Chou's movies are so funny! 周星驰的影片很搞笑!
My boyfriend's jokes are not funny at all! 我男友的笑话一点儿也不好笑。

注意:一个人可以同时fun和funny!
Fun口语里也常做形容词使用,比如形容人。
看一下区别:
Adam is a fun person: Adam是个很有意思的人
Adam is a funny person: Adam是个很幽默的人
