內容簡介

「Also、as well」 和 「too」 都可以用來補充、添加句子的信息,表示 「也,還」。它們意思相近,但用法卻稍有不同。通常情況下,「too」 和 「as well」 只能用在句尾;「also」 既能用在句首,也能用在句中。本集 「一分鐘英語」 教你如何正確使用這三個說法。

文字稿

Hello, everyone, Sam here, and in this lesson we’re going to look at the difference between also, as well and too.

Their meanings are similar – we are adding something – but we use them slightly differently in a sentence.

We use also with the verb, in the middle of the sentence:

He’s really good at tennis, but he also plays football really well.

Or, you can use it at the beginning of the sentence to add emphasis:

He’s really good at tennis. Also, he plays football really well.

As well and too go at the end of the sentence:

He’s really good at tennis, and he plays football really well too.
He’s really good at tennis, and he plays football really well as well.

The only slight difference is that as well is less common in American English and more common in British English than too.

So, what about you? Are you only learning English or are you studying other languages as well?

用法總結

1. 我們可以用 「also」 修飾動詞,放在句子中間使用,表示 「也,還……」。

  • He’s really good at tennis, but he also plays football really well.
  • Wei loves outdoor activities, but she also enjoys being at home.

2. 「Also」 也可以用在句首,表示 「而且,此外……」,起到強調的作用。

  • He’s really good at tennis. Also, he plays football really well.
  • Wei loves watching films. Also, she knows a lot about them.

3. 「As well(也,此外)」 和 「too(也,還)」 用在句末。

  • He’s really good at tennis, and he plays football really well as well.
  • He’s really good at tennis, and he plays football really well too.
  • Wei loves watching films, and she knows a lot about them as well.
  • Wei loves watching films, and she knows a lot about them too.

兩者之間的區別是,美式英語中 「as well」 沒有 「too」 常用;而在英式英語中,「as well」 的使用頻率高於 「too」。
