關於一個英文的小問題

rejoice應該是動詞,使...欣喜

ex. They all rejoiced to hear the happy news.

例句中的they後面應該要用被動式,為什麼我沒有看到be動詞呢?

    rejoice也是不及物動詞, 意思是「欣喜於; 感到高興」;

    rejoiced是過去式, 您的句子是正確的.

    請參閱字典例句: I rejoice to hear of your promotion. <--- 與您的句子同型

    聽說你高升我非常高興。We all rejoiced at/over the good news.

    我們都為這一消息感到高興。

    它是過去式,不是被動式!
