文字稿

Welcome to BBC Learning English. I’m Sam, and today we are looking at the difference between every time and all the time.

We use all the time to talk about something that always or usually happens. For example, many people think that: In the UK, it rains all the time. And yes, it does rain a lot.

We use every time when we are talking about each individual time something happens. For example: Every time I go to the beach, it rains. We don’t know how often I go to the beach, but each individual time I go, it rains.

There! We hope you learn something every time you watch one of these videos!

用法總結

1. All the time

We use all the time to talk about something that always or usually happens.
用 「all the time」 來談論一直、總在發生的事情。

  • In the UK, it rains all the time.
  • She’s late all the time. We have to talk to her manager.
  • What’s their secret? They’re happy all the time!

2. Every time

We use ‘every time when we are talking about each individual time something happens. We do not know how frequently this is, only that it happens each individual time.
用 「every time」 來描述某件事情每一次、單獨發生的時間。我們並不知道事情發生的頻率,只知道 「每次」 發生時都有這樣的情況。

  • Every time I go to the beach, it rains.
  • He’s very reliable. He’s there every time I need his help.
  • It’s like magic! She guesses the correct card every time!
