现在进行时用于表达未来的安排

用现在进行时来表达未来

现在进行时用来表达将来事情的安排,而这种用法假定有多个人知道这件事,也已经为这件事做了些准备。例如:

  • I'm meeting Jim at the airport = Jim 和我有讨论过这件事。
  • I am leaving tomorrow. = 我已经买好我的火车票了。
  • We're having a staff meeting next Monday = 所有员工都有被告知过这件事。
举例
  • Is she seeing him tomorrow?
  • He isn't working next week.
  • They aren't leaving until the end of next year.
  • We are staying with friends when we get to Boston.

注:第一个例句中的动词「seeing」为进行时,因为意思是「碰面」。

要留意!当未来的动作是时间表中的一部分时,就要用一般现在时

请注意这两句的差别:

1. We're having a staff meeting next Monday = 只有那一次
2. We have a staff meeting every Monday
