Hard work

發佈時間: 2021/07/30

成功需苦幹!每位運動員,不論能否奪得獎牌,都一定是經過艱辛和努力練習(hard work),才能夠踏進奧運場館,與世界好手一較高下。

視乎語境,hard work可以有不同意思。上文提到的hard work指勤奮工作、努力做事、努力完成任務。

例如,The medal reminds me of all the hard work and effort I have put into achieving my success.(獎牌提醒我為取得成功所付出的所有努力和工夫。)Without your hard work and dedication, our company would not be this successful today.(沒有你們的辛勤工作和奉獻,我們公司不會有今天的成功。)

Hard work也可以指太吃力的工作,不願意做。例如,It's too much of a hard work to find places that are pet-friendly when you travel.(旅行時要找寵物友好的地方,實在太辛苦了。)Of course it's hard work!If it weren't hard work, everyone would be doing it. The pay is so attractive.(當然辛苦!若非辛苦工,人人都會去做了。薪水那麼吸引。)
