BBC英语一分钟: Notify和 Let someone know的区别

Notify vs Let someone know

Notify和 Let someone know

Hi guys! This is Kee from BBC Learning English, and today I'm going to tell you about some inform ways of using English.

大家好!我是BBC英语学习的基. 今天我来教大家英语中表示通知的用法。

In English, when we want to tell a friend about something, we don't use the word "notify". That's what businesses do.

在英语中,要告诉朋友某事时,我们不用"notify"一词,只有商务场合才用这个词。

Businesses notify their customers. (RIGHT)

店家通知他们的客户。(√)

The prime minister might notify her ministers.(RIGHT)

总理会通知部长们的。(√)

But We don't notify our friends about ours weekend plans.(WRONG)

然而,我们告诉自己的朋友周末计划时不用这个词。(×)

It's too formal.

这样用太正式了。

In English, we say: I'm going to let my friend know that I'm going out.

在英语中,我们可以说:我打算和我朋友说我要出去。

let him know(RIGHT) not "notify"(WRONG).

告知(√)而不是“通知”(×).

Let him know...Now you know.

让他知道...现在大家知道了吧。
