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
He + was
We + were
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.
I was supposed to talk to my boss but he was too busy.
We were going to buy some milk but the store was closed.
He was going to fix the computer but he came home too late.
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?
Weren’t you going to submit your resume? What happened? Did you change your mind?
