未來式與完成式的問題

文法書上說"從過去看未來,要以過去助動詞來表達"

例:I decided that I would study in the U.S.(我已經決定要去美國留學)

不過乍看之下,我可能會翻成:

I have decided...(用完成式)

不知道這樣可不可行?

要表達的時態會不會有問題?

    I decided that I would study in the U.S.

    這個would與主句的過去式連用, 是表示「過去時點的未來式」

    I have decided that I would study in the U.S.

    可以的, 這個would與主句的現在完成式連用, 是現在時態的弱化字, 表謙虛、禮貌, 沒有時態的問題.
