有關tense問題

Dear Mary,

We are holding a picture exhibition at 2:30pm on the coming Saturday. There will be different kinds of Chinese Picutres. Jacky Cheung will sing many songs at the exhibition. There will be a lucky draw so vistors will have opportunity to receive prizes. If you are interested in the exhibition, you can contact me at xxxxxxxxx for booking ticket.

Yours,

Steven

我知道are holding意思係寫封信之前我地預先決定會舉行畫展,同埋計劃埋係畫展裏面有咩野活動,我咁樣理解岩唔岩。同埋想問下篇野既tense岩唔岩。

    你的理解是對的。

    另外,用 future tense 來表示展覽的內容是適當的,因為那個展覽是在未來舉行,所以應用 future tense。當然,有些地方可以不用 future tense,例如 Jacky Cheung will be singing many songs at the exhibition.,這裡用 future continuous tense 能更生動地表達 Jacky Cheung 唱歌的表演,因為 future continuous tense 強調「唱歌的過程」,而 future tense 則強調「唱歌整件事本身」。

    最後那句的 tense 也是對的。你這句是 Type 1 Conditional,在這個情景裏用是合適的,因為它是用來表示「可能性」。而 Type 1 Conditional 中,if 後面的部分是用 present tense,表示後果的那部分則會用 future tense 或 modal verbs(如 may、might、can 等等)。

    希望幫到你。

    We are holding a picture exhibition at 2:30pm on the coming Saturday. ~ OK

    現在進行時 (present continuous) 表示將來, 常含有”意圖”,”安排”或”打算”含義, 並且與表將來的時間狀語連用 (on the coming Saturday)

    Sometimes present continuous tense is used to express future event.
