Amazing Luke Islam on AGT + 每日一字:should vs should have

新一季 America’s Got Talent 進行得如火如荼
早幾日前嚟參賽嘅有呢位好犀利嘅十二歲男孩子 Luke Islam
唔知係雞先定蛋先——
Luke 住喺紐約
亦熱愛百老匯音樂劇
所以攞嚟參賽嘅
亦係音樂劇 Waitress 嘅主題曲 She Used to be Mine
上台前主持人 Terry 喺 00:40-00:48 同佢有以下呢個對話

Terry: Well, you’re in New York, man. It’s all about Broadway over there. Do you actually get to see any shows?

Luke: I have seen more than I should have.

Terry:你喺紐約住喎老友,嗰度乜都係有關百老匯。你其實有冇機會睇過任何演出?

Luke:我睇過多過我所應該睇嘅次數。

有同學可能會問
如果 Luke 指佢應該睇
點解佢用 should have 而唔係 should 呢?

原來現在同將來嘅應該
我哋無錯係用 should
但係過去咗嘅應該
其實係 should have
譬如:
有人畀網上騙徒呃咗
事後佢話:
「我一早應該知啦!」
因為係講之前應該知,英文係:
I should have known.
又或者:
有人本來諗住買地鐵嘅股票
但係冇買到
見到佢升到傻咗之後,佢話:
「我一早應該買囉!」
佢意思係佢之前應該有去買
唔係而家,或者將來
所以英文係:
I should have bought it!

Luke 小朋友呢個演出幾好睇
You tube 裡面嘅 top comments 仲好好笑
可能幫大家學到唔少英文添
你地都快啲睇吓!
