介词短语 in the past 在句中用时间状语时,既可以连用一般过去时,也可以连和现在完成时,请跟着小编来看看这两者的区别:


与一般过去时连用


用一般过去时,客观地叙述过去的情况:

 

In the past, people had fewer expectations. 

过去,人们的希求要少一些。

英国现在的首都是伦敦,过去是温切斯特。

过去他只得在烛光下攻读。

过去,航行依靠人们对星星位置知识的了解。

 

Today, people are much more concerned about their health than they were in the past. 

现在人们比过去更关注自己的健康。

 

与现在完成时连用


用现在完成时,强调持续到现在的状态或对现在影响。

 

 

The two sides will have to be better and tougher than either has beenin the past. 

双方都必须比过去更好一些、更强硬一些。

 

They have been so feather-bedded in the past that they can’t cope with hardship now.

他们一直娇生惯养,所以现在过不了苦日子。

 

In the past this process of transition has often proved difficult. 

过去这种过渡过程常证明是困难的。

过去他们对这样的请求从来都是置若罔闻的。
