    A1: 首先 determined 與 is determined不是主動與被動的差別.

    第一句的 determined 在此是主動沒錯, 意思是 "決定 (decide)" 但是在此是過去式的用法 (-ed). 此句 "He determined to learn Spanish." 意思是 "他已決定學西班牙語".

    第二句 He is determined to learn Spanish. 裡面的 "determined" 則是當作形容詞 , 意思是 "堅決的". 全句翻譯成 "他堅決要學英文." 而且是現在簡單式的表達方式.

    A2: 要知道 determine 與 determined的區別, 首先你得了解, 這兩個字的區別不是主動和被動. 而是動詞語形容詞.

    - determine 動詞, 用法就是 + to V. 現在式用determine, 過去式用determined. 想簡單一點, 你可把它當成另一個簡單的字 "decide", 例如:

    1. I decide to go to Taipei. = I determine to go to Taipei.

    (現在簡單式用法, 我決定去台北)

    2. I decided to go to Taiepie. = I determined to go to Taipei.

    (過去式用法, 我已決定去台北)

    - determined 也可以形容詞. 它剛好跟過去式的determined長的一樣而已. 用法前面別忘了 be 動詞, 如:

    1. I am determined to go to Taipei.

    (現在簡單式用法, 我堅決要去台北)

    2. I was determined to go to Taipei.

    (過去式用法, 我那時候堅決要去台北.)

    以上.

    第一句口語不常用

    要說就應該把 determined 換成 decided 或其他慣用詞

    是嗎?

    我怎麼覺得

    第一句是"他決定要學西班牙文"

    第二句是"他被決定要學西班牙文"?

    上面是我猜得......

    He determined to learn Spanish.是他決定要學....

    但加了is

    He is determined to learn Spanish.

    就有加強語言的意思

    雖然意思是一樣的

    就像

    "我下定決心要減肥!"

    "我已經下定決心要減肥!"

    第2句給人的感覺就較強烈.
