好奇就問 asked in 社會與文化語言 · 1 decade ago

U49、could swim是會游泳的意思嗎?這樣寫對嗎?

標題:先讀各題的提示,然後用 it took ... 寫句子。

3. I learned to swim last year. I had my first swimming lesson in January. I could swim by myself two months later.

問題一、I could swim by myself two months later. 這句子的中文是「兩個月後我學會靠自己游泳」嗎?

問題二、書的解答寫「It took me two months to learn to swim / to be able to swim by myself.」

我寫這樣可以嗎? It took me two months to learn swimming.

請告訴我,我寫這樣可以嗎?謝謝大家!

Update:

這一題托了好久,竟然都沒有人回答我。

我問得太細了嗎?因為我不是外國人,我「沒在西方國家生活過」,我不知道他們的習慣用法,所以才有這麼多的問題的。

最後,謝謝澍媽媽的回答!

以後還請多幫忙!

Update 2:

謝謝 澍媽媽的回答!非常的詳細!

    3. I learned to swim last year. I had my first swimming lesson in January. I could swim by myself two months later.

    問題一、I could swim by myself two months later. 這句子的中文是「兩個月後我學會靠自己游泳」嗎?-->是

    但oneself/by oneself有不同的定義

    *oneself= on one's own 憑藉自己的能力

    *by oneself- alone 獨自一人

    因此著重的應該是不用教練在一旁指導,也能獨立完成游泳這個活動

    (以上,敬請參照 Grammar In Use/ Intermediate U79.80)

    問題二、書的解答寫「It took me two months to learn to swim / to be able to swim by myself.」

    我寫這樣可以嗎? It took me two months to learn swimming.-->可以

    另可做以下表達:

    It took me two months to learn how to swim.
