Topic 46: in/at the cinema

‘In the cinema’ 及 ‘at the cinema’ 在意思上有一點點分別:

例子1: Where are you?
I am in the cinema. (The focus is ‘in the building’ 強調在樓宇內)
I am at the cinema. (can be in the cinema or outside the cinema 可以是戲院內或戲院外,如戲院門口)

例子2: What are you doing?
I am seeing a film at the cinema. (The focus is on what one is doing 強調在做甚麼)
(‘In the cinema’ is commonly taught in the primary level so this answer is also acceptable in Example 2 由於小學通常教學生 ‘in the cinema’ ,所以這一題無論學生回答 ‘in the cinema’ 或 ‘at the cinema’ 也可以)

Topic 45: Prepositions of place: in/on/at

簡單來說,能站立在上面的交通工具用 ‘on’ ,不可的用 ‘in’,至於 ‘at’ 就常用於車站。由此推説, ‘cable car’ 是 ‘on the cable car’ , ‘airport’ 便是 ‘at the airport’ 了。

Topic 42: Comparatives and Superlatives

「甚麼時候加 -er,甚麼時候加 more?」這是不少同學們的問題。

一般來說,如形容詞帶有後綴詞(suffixes)(例如-ous, -ful, -able/-ible 等等)或有三個或以上音節(syllables),我們會用 ‘more’ 或 ‘the most’。例:
helpful, more helpful, the most helpful
humorous , more humorous, the most humorous
difficult, more difficult, the most difficult

至於兩個音節則有些生字會用 ‘-er/-est’,有些會用 ‘more/the most’,要靠多閱讀多用多記才行。例:
clever, cleverer, the cleverest
simple, simpler, the simplest
modern, more modern, the most modern
loyal, more loyal, the most loyal
