  • 常见错误

    adj. (形容词)

      She blushed as she spoke, for lying is foreign with her nature.

      She blushed as she spoke, for lying is foreign to her nature.

      Three foreign couples live on the third floor.

      “三对外国夫妇”译成three couples of foreigners不符合英语习惯说法,应该改为 three foreign couples。“一对美国夫妇”是an American couple,若写成a couple of Americans就可能是两个美国人了。
