每日一字:look forward to

每日一字:look forward to

啱啱寫咗一篇關於香港人喺職場英語當中
好普遍地誤解佢用法嘅 kindly
等我今日再寫一個佢個誤解程度
攞第二都無人敢攞第一嘅先
佢就係 look forward to xxx

呢篇超長
亦係我一路都未寫佢出嚟嘅原因
希望你哋好似德國隊咁 🇩🇪
頂得住 😌

近年見到越嚟越多人
Look forward to 後面寫嘅係冇加 ing 嘅動詞
因為佢哋記得細個先生講過話
To 後面嘅動詞,一定係唔可以加任何嘢嘅
到底呢個講法啱唔啱呢?
今日就等 Miss Joey 同大家解釋一下

其實我成日同我啲大人學生話
英文好難學嘅其中一個原因
係因為佢裡面好多生字嘅家庭環境唔好 😂
要打多過一份工
譬如 to 就係其中一個例子
佢其中一份工係做動詞嘅 partner
兩者 part 住大家一齊變身以名詞嘅身份出場
譬如:
I want chocolate. (chocolate 係你想要嘅嘢,係名詞)
I like cars. (cars 係你鍾意嘅嘢,係名詞)
I want to sleep. (to sleep 亦係你想要嘅嘢,所以亦變成為一組名詞)
I like to swim. (to swim 亦係你鍾意嘅嘢,所以亦變成一組名詞)
所以冇錯
喺以上嘅情況
同 to 作為 partner 嘅動詞係一定唔可以加嘢嘅

知但係
原來 to 仲有另外一份工!

To 嘅另外一份工同 in, on, at 一樣
係 preposition
Prepositions 呢份工好似工人姐姐幫手湊仔咁
永遠幫手湊住一個名詞
你留意吓?
in the room
on the table
at the bus stop
你哋最熟悉嘅呢啲 prepositions
永遠都係湊住一個名詞喺後邊
而所以 to 嘅第二份工亦係咁樣:
She ran to the toilet.
He donated the books to the school.
I wrote a letter to Jimmy Fallon.

喺以上三句句子裏面
To 嘅工作都係工人姐姐
後面湊住一個個嘅名詞- toilet, school, Jimmy Fallon.

好喇,重點嚟喇

Look forward 解期待,係咪?
咁又等我哋作下句先
I look forward to the party.
We look forward to the reunion.
The kids are looking forward to the movie.

留意吓?
To 後面係咪跟住一個個嘅名詞?
Party, reunion, movie.
如果係咁嘅話
To 喺呢個情況下係返緊佢邊份工呢?
無錯!
就係 preposition 喇!

所以如果你期待嘅係去見一個人
或者去獲得對方嘅回覆
「見」、「獲得」本身係動詞
咁要先將佢哋變成名詞
先可以成為你期待嘅嘢
喺呢啲情況下
英文文法有一樣嘢
叫做「加 ing 去將個動詞變做名詞」

I look forward to meet you. ❌
I look forward to meeting you. ⭕
We look forward to hear from you. ❌
We look forward to hearing from you. ⭕

因為 meet you 係動詞
meeting you 先係名詞
hear from you 係動詞
hearing from you 先係名詞
喺 look forward to 後面要將你期待嘅動作
加上 ing 將佢哋變成名詞
先符合標準去俾 to 呢個 preposition 湊住!

即是係話
英文文法裏面有一樣嘢
叫做將動詞變名詞
一共有兩招可以去達到呢個目的
一招係喺個動詞前面加 to
另一招係喺個動詞後面加 ing
而如果你期待嘅本身係一個動作
我哋就要加 ing 去將佢變成一個名詞

後記:
心水清嘅同學可能會喺度諗
如果 look forward to 後面要係名詞嘅話
點解只能夠用加 ing 嗰招去變名詞
而唔用咩 part 住 to 嗰嗰方法呢 🤔
咁你試諗真啲喇喎
如果用 to 嗰個格式去跟 look forward to
係會變成 look forward to to meet
同埋 look forward to to see 架
所以我哋就會揀用加 ing 嗰招去變名詞
等佢唔會咁論盡
就係呢個原因啦!
