Will vs Would?#學術台 #歡迎發問

Will 同 Would 可算係學生作文最亂黎的 common mistakes 之一 😖。      


的確,Will 同 Would 的關係唔係咁一刀切,學生可能直接理解為一個講 Future Action 一個 Past Action,但又唔難發現有時講 Present Actions 或者俾 Suggestions 或者用 If-conditional 都會用上 Will / Would。今日一於同大家分享一下呢兩個字錯綜複雜的關係!      


1) Will = 將會;Would = 將會 (Past)      

E.g. Peter will start his business.    

(Peter 將會創業 👉🏻 由「現在」呢個 time point 睇,Peter 打後會去創業)      

E.g. Last year, Peter said he would start his business.    

(Peter上年話佢將會創業 👉🏻 由「上年」呢個 time point 睇,Peter 話佢打後會去創業)      

⭕ 兩句的「打後」/「將來」/「黎緊」係根據唔同的 Time Point 出發      


2) Will = 將會 (比較 Sure 會發生);Would = 將會 (無咁 Sure 會發生)      

E.g. I will give you $1000. VS I would give you $1000.      

⭕ 相比之下,前者咁講語氣係較為肯定,後者則有所保留 (睇黎有 d hesitation,鬼仔朋友咁講啫係佢未必會俾錢)      

⭕ 正正因為 Would 有「有所保留」的意思,一般 Would 亦俾人感覺更 Polite,適用於表示徵求意見或提出請求      

E.g. Would Monday night suit you? (星期一晚上你OK嗎?)      

E.g. Would you please post the letter for me? (幫我寄了這封信好嗎?)      

⭕ 呢度的 Would 唔係講「過去的意願」,而係表示委婉語氣,等聽上黎無咁武斷      

⭕ 如果大家記得 F1/2 學的條件句式 If-conditional,當中 Type 2 的 Would 都係表逹「無咁武斷 / 發生概率較細 / Unlikely」      

E.g. (同一個慣左捱夜的夜鬼講) You wouldn't be so tired if you went to bed earlier.      


3) Would 表示「過往習慣」    

⭕ 嗱,習慣常指 repeated actions,單次 action 唔用 would 哦!(你可能問,咁咪同 Used to 好似?嗯 ... 都係架,我有學生剛剛學校大考正正俾呢兩個字陰到 😕,所以記得繼續 Follow 我 IG/Fb 並且撳埋鐘仔🔔,咁先唔會錯過下次免費教學)    

⭕ 同埋,呢個跟 Will 沒太大關連喔!    

E.g. When I was younger, I would go on a long bike ride every Saturday.

未完全明白?唔緊要,最起碼先記住:      

⭕ Would is sometimes (but not necessarily) past tense.      

⭕ Will is never past tense.                  

覺得有用的記得幫手 Share 出去等更多人受惠,同埋得閒過黎重温有助汲收!信我 👩🏻‍🏫,睇完一次未必完全識得用番出黎,that's why 我見好多學生其實真係由 F1 去到 F6 都一直用錯緊,希望呢篇幫到大家!
