Talk跟Speak幾乎可以相通,但是有一個用法卻例外!同樣都是說,但是這三個單字的差別你分得出來嗎?Ronnie在《engVid》中分享了他們的用法,讓你說清楚講明白!

1.時態

Talk, Talked , Talked

Speak, Spoke, Spoken

Tell, Told, Told
(現在,過去,過去完成式)

2.差別

Talk 跟Speak幾乎相通。

I’ll talk to you. = I’ll speak to you.

 

差別在於語言,要用Speak
I speak English. 我說英語
I speak German. 我說德語

 

片語:Talk sb out of sth 說服某人放棄某事
Her parents try to talk her out of getting engaged.
她家人試圖說服她取消訂婚。

 

Tell則是給對方資訊(Give information)、告訴某人

I told her to turn left.
我告訴她轉左邊。

I need to tell him.
我必須告訴他。

I told you!
我早就告訴過你!
