這三句每一句都有bug,先不要看答案,看看你找不找得出bugs.

1. Have you set up the conference room already? 會議室已經準備好了嗎?
2. Let's get started today's meeting. 那就開始會議吧!
3. I suggest to break up into groups and discuss the ideas. 我建議分成幾組討論這些想法。

Debugged:

 

1. Have you set up the conference room yet?

 

Already和yet都用在完成式,有已經的意思。差別是already多用於肯定句中,例如:The staff have already finished the work. 而yet則多用於疑問句與否定句中,如:Have you finished it yet? I haven't finished it yet.

 

2. Let's get started with today's meeting.

Get started是展開行動很口語的用法,可以直接說Let’s get started。但後面如果加名詞,就要接一個介系詞with。如果是展開一個計劃,也可以用get started on the project。

 

3. I suggest we break up into groups and discuss the ideas we've seen presented.

建議做某事,英語用 suggest doing sth,而不能用 suggest to do sth。例如:他建議搭飛機去,可我認為這樣花費太大。

(O) He suggested going by plane, but I thought it would cost too much.

(X) He suggested to go by plane, but I thought it would cost too much.
