在今天的 925 英文影片 課, we’re going to learn how to make generalizations in English.
Don’t you hate it when people say things like “Americans are rude”? 我的意思是, not all Americans are rude. And people in other countries are rude too. It’s simply not helpful to say something is true of a whole group of people. When it’s negative like that, it feels wrong.
But it can be helpful to describe a group of people, as long as we are clear that it’s not everyone we’re talking about. We call this a “generalization.” For example, “many of my friends work in finance.” I’m making a “generalization” about my friends. And it doesn’t have to be people. If I say “most of our online sales come from Europe,” I’m generalizing about sales.Members: PDF Transcript | Lesson Module | Quiz | MP3 Audio
