英文Reading技巧 1)all but + n. = 幾乎、差不多全是

通常看見 all but…,同學們都會以為是 “所以但除了。。。” 的意思,但其實正確的意思是 “幾乎、差不多全是”。

例句:The criticism against adolescents is all but the lack of willpower and determination.

英文Reading技巧 2)n. + has little positive to say = 沒有甚麼好話好說

這句就字面看來相信有很多人會以為是解 “xx 對那樣事件沒有很正面的看法”,但其實真正意思於正面負面無關,而是解作沒有甚麼好話好說。

例句:Hong Kong people have little positive to say about the mainland tourists as they are often unhygienic and erode precious resources, like milk powder.

英文Reading技巧 3)n. + is nothing less than + n. = 完全是

這個句式大家可能比較難load都它的意思,可能會誤以為是 “xx比xx少” 的意思,但是其實真正的意思是 “完全是”。

例句:The criticism against adolescents is all but the lack of willpower and determination.
