“Confused”是一个动词，意味着不清楚或无法区分物体或思想的差异。 例如： I find quantum physics confusing. (I have a hard-time understanding quantum physics). “About”这个词有几个定义。我经常告诉我的学生，“about”意味着一个概念或主题内的许多话题。 We were talking about Australia. (We could be talking about the government, economy or its people). 当作介词使用时，“about”表示关于某事。 The professor’s lecture was about global warming. “About”这个词还可以表示接近或附近。 她和她姐姐差不多大；我想她是双胞胎。 “About”也是一个形容词。作为形容词时，它表示接近于数量。 He is about 6 feet tall. “About”这个词还可以表示几乎或差不多。 I am about finished with my math homework. 信不信由你，“about”也是一个形容词。在这个意义上，它被定义为四处移动。 The toddler was up and about when she should have been asleep. “With”这个词表示一种关系。当两件事结合在一起时，“with”是个好用的词！
在语法中，人们可能犯的最令人沮丧的错误之一就是混淆"your"和"you're"。即使是英语的母语者也会犯这个错误！仅仅因为有人在说这门语言上长大，并不意味着他们总是知道或关注这两个词的区别。 不要犯同样的错误！如果你能在写作中避免混淆这两个词，你已经领先一步。 Your（你的） Your是一个所有格代词。这意味着当你谈论某人拥有某物时，你使用它。在这种情况下，拥有者就是你。 每当你描述你拥有的东西时，都可以使用"your"。注意，所有格代词的宾格形式是"yours"。这意味着你可以用"yours"代替"your ball"这个短语。 Julie was telling me all about your achievements! Congratulations! I had no idea that these were your views on your role in the workplace. Is this your book? Is this book yours?
Welcome On Board “上船”这个表达比“登船”更古老，然而，这两个表达可以互换使用，意思是进入船、飞机、火车或公共汽车： Jack was already aboard/on board when he remembered that he’d left his suit at home. The plane crashed, but everyone on board / aboard survived. 所有乘客都在船上吗？ 这是您的机长发言。欢迎登上这趟英国航空的航班。 Welcome on board/aboard can also be used figuratively when welcoming a new member of a team: Welcome on board/aboard, James always speaks very highly of you. Welcome, Janine. It’s good to have you on board / aboard!
