名詞 「journey」 和 「trip」 都有 「旅行,旅程」 的意思,但它們所描述的 「旅行」 有一定的區別。在使用時,通常可以根據行程的長短和出行方式來決定用哪個詞更合適。「一分鐘英語」 教你區分這兩個詞語的竅門。

文字稿

Hi! Sian here again. Now, we all love going on holiday, but these two words can cause problems!

So, a journey is a noun and refers to a single piece of travel. So, when you move from one place to another – by car, plane, train, bus…

The journey to London takes three hours by bus.

A trip is also a noun, but usually refers to more than one journey and the time you spend in a place. So if someone asks:’How was your trip?’ They are asking about the whole time you are away, not the journey.

“How was your camping trip, Sian?” “It was fun but it rained all weekend.”

A trip is often quite short compared to a holiday, and we can use it in these set phrases: so you can have ‘a business trip‘, ‘a school trip‘ or ‘a day trip‘.

用法總結

1. 名詞 「journey」 指 「一段旅程、旅途」,即乘坐一種交通工具從一地到另一地。它強調 「單次行程」。

  • The journey to London takes three hours by bus.

2. 名詞 「trip」 指 「一次旅行、旅遊」,其中可能包括多段行程。比如, 如果有人問:「How was your trip? (你這次旅行怎麼樣?)」 這裡,「trip」 指 「出遊的整段時間」,而非單次行程。

  • How was your camping trip, Sian?
    It was fun but it rained all weekend.

3. 與 「holiday(假期)」 相比,「trip(旅行)」 的時間相對較短。包含 「trip」 的常見搭配有:

A business trip 一次商務旅行
A school trip 一次學校郊遊
A day trip 一日遊
