從生活學多益

【必考】despite vs. in spite of

多益第五部分考試最常考的排列組合不外乎就是 because although despite in spite of ….

介係詞「雖然儘管」despite;in spite of

[區別1] 詞性不同:

1. despite、in spite of、for all、with all [介係詞]

2. despite the fact that 和 in spite of the fact that 「連接詞」

– 有些同學也跟although/though/ even though/ while “雖然“做比較

  以上皆為連接詞 要接句子唷!!

[區別2] 用法不同:

1. despite/ in spite of 用於承接語意有所轉折的句子,後方都需搭配「名詞」

2. despite the fact that 和 in spite of the fact that需連接句子 ( 主詞 + 動詞 )


e.g.

儘管生病了,Ryan昨天還是去上學。
– 可用「介係詞」來寫:

Despite his illness, Ryan still went to school yesterday.
[NOTE] 可將「介係詞」despite 換成 in spite of、for all 或 with all。

– 也可用「連接詞」改寫:

Although he was sick, Ryan still went to school yesterday.
[NOTE] 可將「連接詞」although 換成 though、even though 或while。

[注意] despite 就是despite 沒有despite of 這片語 請尊重他!!! 也沒有in spite的用法 不要在考試時自己內心小劇場 以為是新片語 初次見面請多指教

e.g. 多益考題
