中国人学英语最容易犯错的30句英语口语

英语听说读写背2018-08-01 15:09:10

1. 我非常喜欢它。

错误:I very like it

正确:I like it very much.


2. 这个价格对我挺合适的。

错误:The price is very suitable for me.

正确:The price is right.

Note:suitable(合适的、相配的)最常见的用法是以否定的形式出现在告示或通知上,

如:下列节目儿童不宜。

The following programme is not suitable for children。

在这组句子中用后面的说法会更合适。


3. 你是做什么工作的呢?

错误:Whats your job?

正确:Are you working at the moment?

Note:whats your job这种说法难道也有毛病吗?

是的。因为如果您的谈话对象刚刚失业,如此直接的问法会让对方有失面子,所以您要问:

目前您是在上班吗?

Are you working at the moment?

接下来您才问:

目前您在哪儿工作呢?

Where are you working these days?

或者您从事哪个行业呢?

What line of work are you in?


4. 用英语怎么说?

错误:How to say?

正确:How do you say this in English?

Note:How to say是在中国最为泛滥成灾的中国式英语之一,这决不是地道的英语说法。

同样的句子有:

请问这个词如何拼写?

How do you spell that please?

请问这个单词怎么读?

How do you pronounce this word?


5. 明天我有事情要做。

错误:I have something to do tomorrow?

正确:Sorry but I am tied up all day tomorrow.

用I have something to do来表示您很忙,这也完全是中国式的说法。

因为每时每刻我们都有事情要做,躺在那里睡大觉也是事情。

所以您可以说我很忙,脱不开身:

Im tied up.

还有其他的说法:

Iafraid I cant make it at that time. 

Id love to, but I cant, I have to stay at home.


6. 我没有英文名。

错误:I havent English name.

正确:I dont have an English name.

Note:许多人讲英语犯这样的错误,从语法角度来分析,可能是语法功底欠缺,因为have在这里是实义动词,而并不是在现在完成时里面那个没有意义的助动词。所以,这句话由肯定句变成否定句要加助动词。

我没有钱;

I dont have any money.

我没有兄弟姐妹;

I dont have any brothers or sisters.

我没有车。

I dont have a car.


7. 我想我不行。

错误:I think I cant.

正确:I dont think I can.

Note:这一组然是个习惯问题,在语法上称为否定前置,这就是汉语里面说“我想我不会”的时候,英语里面总是说“我不认为我会”。

以后您在说类似的英语句子的时候,只要您留心,也会习惯英语的说法的,


8. 我的舞也跳得不好。

错误:I dont dance well too.

正确:I am not a very good dancer either.

Note:当我们说不擅长做什么事情的时候,英语里面通常用not good at something,英语的思维甚至直接踊跃到:我不是一个好的舞者。


9. 现在几点钟了?

错误:What time is it now?

正确:What time is it, please?

Note:What time is it now这是一个直接从汉语翻译过的句子,讲英语的时候没有必要说now,因为您不可能问what time was it yesterday, 或者what time is it tommorow?

所以符合英语习惯的说法是:

请问现在几点了?

还有一种说法是:

How are we doing for time?

这句话在有时间限制的时候特别合适


10. 我的英语很糟糕。

错误:My English is poor.

正确:I am not 100% fluent, but at least I am improving.

Note:有人开玩笑说,全中国人最擅长的一句英文是:My English is poor.

实际上,没有外国人会说:My Chinese is poor. 无论他们的汉语是好是坏,他们会说: 

I am still having a few problem, but I getting better.

当您告诉外国人,您的英语很poor,so what(那又怎么样呢),是要让别人当场施舍给我们一些英语呢,还是说我的英语不好,咱们不谈了吧。


11. 你愿意参加我们的晚会吗?

错误:Would you like to join our party on Friday?

正确:Would you like to come to our party on Friday night?

Note:join往往是指参加俱乐部或者协会,如:

join a health club; 

join the Communist Party.

事实上,常常与party搭配的动词的come 或者go。

如go a wild party,或者come to a Christmas Party。


12. 我没有经验。

错误:I have no experience.

正确:I am afraid I dont know much about that.

Note:I have no experience这句话听起来古里古怪,因为您只需要说:

那方面我懂得不多,或者这方面我不在行,就行了。

I am not really an expert in this area.


13. 我没有男朋友。

错误:I have no boyfriend.

正确:I dont have a boyfriend.


14. 他的身体很健康。

错误:His body is healthy.

正确:He is in good health. 

You can also say: 

Hes healthy.


15. 价钱很昂贵/便宜。

错误:The price is too expensive/cheap.

正确:The price is too high/ rather low.


16. 我们下了车。

错误:We got off the car.

正确:We got out of the car.


17. 车速快了。

错误:The speed of the car is fast.

正确:The car is speeding. Or “The car is going too fast.”


18. 这个春节你回家吗?

Will you be going back home for the Spring Festival?

错误:是的,我回去。Of course! (这一句是错的)

正确:当然。Sure. / Certainly.(这种说法是正确的)


以英语为母语的人使用of course的频率要比中国的学生低得多,只有在回答一些众所周知的问题时才说of course。

因为of course后面隐含的一句话是“当然我知道啦!难道我是一个傻瓜吗?”

因此,of course带有挑衅的意味。

在交谈时,用sure或certainly效果会好得多。

同时,of course not也具挑衅的意味。正常情况下语气温和的说法是certainly not.


19. 我觉得右手很疼。

错误:I feel very painful in my right hand.

正确:My right hand is very painful. Or “ My right hand hurts(aches).”


20. 他看到她很惊讶。

错误:He looked at her and felt surprised.

正确:He looked at her in surprise.


21. 我读过你的小说但是没料到你这么年轻。

错误:I have read your novels but I didn't think you could be so young.

正确:After having read your novel, I expected that you would be older.


22. 她脸红了,让我看穿了她的心思。

错误:Her red face made me see through her mind.

正确:Correct: Her red face told me what she was thinking.


23. 看到这幅画让我想到了我的童年时代。

错误:The sight of these pictures made me remember my own childhood

正确:Correct: Seeing these pictures reminded me of my own childhood.


24. 别理她。

错误:Don't pay attention to her.

正确:Leave her alone.


25. 我在大学里学到了许多知识。

错误:I get a lot of knowledge in the university.

正确:I learned a lot in university.


26. 黄山正在读书。

错误:Samuel is reading a book.

正确:Samuel is reading.


27. 我很兴奋。

错误:I am exciting.

正确:I am so excited.


28. 我遇到了很多困难。

错误:I am having many difficulties.

正确:I am having a few problems / lots of problems.


29. 请快点走,否则我们会迟到的。

错误:Please hurry to walk or we'll be late.

正确:Please hurry up or we'll be late.


30. 她由嫉妒转向失望。

错误:She was so jealous that she became desperate.

正确:Jealousy drove her to despair.
