Prevent vs Avoid

Prevent 和 Avoid的区别

Hi guys! Dan for BBC Learning English here. This time we're looking difference between prevent and avoid.

大家好!我是BBC英语学习的丹,这节课我们学习prevent 和avoid的区别。

Prevent basically means stop. If you prevent something, you stop it from happening - often before it starts.

prevent主要表示阻止。阻止某事即不让某事发生——通常在事情发生之前。

You can prevent something, prevent something from happening or prevent someone from doing something. For example: The arrival of the police prevented crime. Or: Losing my passport prevented me from flying. Or: I prevented her from slapping me! Wow!

用于表示阻止某事,组织某事发生或者阻止某人做某事。比如说:警察到来制止了犯罪。再比如:我的护照丢了,上不了飞机。又比如:我挡住了她打我的手!哇!

Now avoid, basically means miss. If you avoid something, you try to make it miss you. For example: I avoided meeting my ex. Or: I avoided the slap easily!

avoid主要表示错过。如果你避免某事,即努力让某事不发生在自己身上。例如:我避免碰见前任。再比如:我轻松躲过了掌掴!
