    當表示「致力於做某件事」時,work at和work on是相同用法的。

    例句:"Have you drawn up that list?" "No, but I am working on (at) it"(「清單完成了嗎?」「還沒,不過正在趕了。」)

    但work on也有「對某是產生效力或影響」的意思。

    例句:"This medicine will work on the affected part." (這種藥會作用在患部)

    work on something: 是說你"花時間"把某樣事情改進的更好,修正他,時間概念比較多,可以當成improve

    例如: I didn't sleep all night. I was wroking on my homework.

    work at something:

    work at: 也是努力完成某事, 強調付出的'努力' 與"完成"性 'at' 更強調那一點

    例如: No one was born to succeed, you have to work at it.
