I can’t swim, too.

「我也不會游泳」這句話的英文真的是這樣說的嗎?絕對不是!看看這些肯定否定的「也」該怎麼說。

A. 放句尾:肯定的用 too,否定為 either。
e.g., He can swim, and I can, too. / He didn’t swim, and I didn’t, either.
他會游泳,而我也會。 / 他沒游泳,我也沒有。

B. 放句首:肯定的用 so,否定為 neither,後面要倒裝。
e.g., He can swim, and so can I. / He will not swim, and neither will I.(注意這邊的will要改為肯定哦)
他會游泳,而我也會。/ 他之後不會游泳,而我之後也不會。

 

Look at the sentences below. A is the speaker. B answers, and sometimes
a third person C answers after B.

When you agree with the speaker…

A: I like ice cream. B: Me, too. or I do, too. or So do I.

A: I can play the piano. B: Me, too. or I can, too. or So can I.

A: I am hungry. B: Me, too. or I am, too. or So am I.

A: I don’t like hamburgers. B: Me, either. or Neither do I.

A: I can’t cook. B: Me, either. or Neither can I.

A: I’m not tired. B: Me either. or Neither am I.

In the sentences above, a third person (C) would say the same thing as the second person (B)

When you don’t agree with the speaker…

A: I love fried fish. B: I don’t. C: I don’t either. or Neither do I.

A: I am tall. B: I’m not. C: I’m not either. or Neither am I.

A: I can sing. B: I can’t. C: I can’t either. or Neither can I.

A: I don’t like chocolate. B: I do. C: I do, too.

A: I’m not Canadian. B: I am. C: I am, too.

A: I can’t speak English. B: I can. C: I can, too.

Note- there may be a few other possible ways to answer these questions.
