我們常常在做好計畫後,遇到一些意外,計畫泡湯後只好另尋方法。這個時候要怎麼用英文清楚表達,你本來該做某事卻沒有做呢?一起和 Engvid.com的講師Rebecca學學was supposed to 和 was going to 的用法吧!

 

1.主詞 + Be動詞過去式

I

He      +     was

She

第一人稱及第三人稱+ am,is的過去式was

 

You

They

第三人稱+ are 的過去式 were

 

2.Was supposed to / was going to +

I was supposed to call my mom but it got too late.

我本來要打給我媽的但是時間不早了。

I was supposed to talk to my boss but he was too busy.

He was going to fix the computer but he came home too late.

疑問句?

Supposed to / going to 也能做疑問句。問對方本來不是要做某事?聽起來會有點質問的感覺。

Weren’t you supposed to go to school today? What happened? How can you still at home today?
