【大略翻譯】

在學習英文的日常對話時,發音或字的選擇是否正確是很重要的。

像是”seldom”可以用其他更常見的字取代,如”not often”或”rarely”,這時後也可以把字延伸成其他用字像是” on rare occasions”或” hardly ever”,大家要以對話主題去挑選適合的用字。


舉個例子吧!

When was the last time you saw him?
妳上次看到他是甚麼時候?

We rarely see each other now.
We don’t often see each other now.
We only see each other on rare occasions.
We hardly ever see each other now.
我們現在很少碰面。
