你有「早起障礙」?每天上班鬧鐘要設十個,每次間隔10分鐘…?
還是你很路痴沒方向感,就算看 Google Map也可以走失?
像這樣對於做某件事有困難、有障礙,英文句型可以這樣說:
S + have + problems/ trouble/ difficulty/ a hard time + V-ing…
 
Danny had problems (in) finding a new apartment. It took him almost six months.
丹尼對於找新公寓這件事情很苦手,他花了差不多六個月才找到。
 
Keith has trouble (in) remembering people's names, so he often just calls them "buddy."
凱斯不擅長記憶別人的名字,所以他總是稱別人「兄弟」。

 
📍 亦可搭配some(有些)、great(非常)、little(幾乎沒有)等字詞來修飾困難程度。
Katie had some trouble locating the restaurant because it wasn't on Google Maps.
因為那間餐廳沒有在Google地圖上,凱蒂很難找到它的位置。

📍 本句型中,trouble和difficulty也可以搭配no來表示「做…沒有困難」
Andrew has no problem swimming in the rough ocean.
安德魯在起浪的海裡游泳也沒問題。

📍 a hard time 則通常以單數可數名詞形式呈現。
Helen has a hard time waking up in the morning, so she sets three alarm clocks.
海倫早上很難起床,所以她設了三個鬧鐘。
 
The test was very difficult, so Jenny had a hard time answering all the questions.
那次考試非常困難,所以珍妮答題答得很痛苦。
