Hello, everyone! 我是英文庫的 Celine 🙂,今天讓我們來搞懂幾個 as… as… 的用法吧!

不曉得大家是不是看到 as 就頭痛了,因為除了 as 本身就有很多意思,而 as… as…又能延伸出很多片語和用法……😩。別擔心,英文庫早就幫你整理好相關用法,就等著你來學習了!話不多說,往下看看 as long as、as soon as、as far as 該怎麼用吧!

1. as long as  只要…

  • As long as A句, B句.

as long as 指的是如果 A 事件發生了,那麼 B 事件就能夠實現,是條件句的一種。
as long as 作為連接詞來連接兩個句子,可以放在句首或句中,代換成 so long as 也是一樣的意思。
這個用法還滿常出現在生活中的,像是師長或家長對孩子說的話,還有對情人甜言蜜語,或是表示對未來事件的預測。

Backstreet Boys 和 Justin Bieber 各有一首歌都叫做 <As Long As You Love Me>,推薦你去聽聽唷 🎶~

You can go out as long as you finish your homework.
只要你寫完功課就可以出門了。

只要你愛我,我不會在乎你有多少錢。

As long as I have you, nothing else matters.
只要我擁有你,其他什麼都不重要了。

As long as the weather is good next weekend, we will go hiking.
只要下個週末天氣好,我們就會去健行。

2. as soon as  一…就…

  • As soon as A句, B句.

soon 的語意就是指時間上很快地,所以 as soon as 也跟時間有關係,表示 A 事件發生後,B 事件馬上就跟著發生,可以用於過去或未來的事件。
as soon as 作為連接詞來連接兩個句子,放在句首或句中都可以喔。

The baby stopped crying as soon as she saw her mother.
那個小嬰兒一看到媽媽就不哭了。

Damn it! As soon as I walked out of my house, it started to rain.

老闆一出現,這場會議就會開始了。

📖 補充

要表示「一… 就…」的意思,還可以使用另外兩個常用句型,就讓我來代換以上的例句給你看吧:

  • the moment + S + V
  • on / upon + Ving

The baby stopped crying as soon as she saw her mother.
= The baby stopped crying the moment she saw her mother.
= The baby stopped crying on/upon seeing her mother.

要特別留意的是,在用 on / upon + Ving 的句型時,前後主詞必須相同,在以上的例句中,前後主詞都是 the baby,所以可以使用這個用法,但其他例句由於前後主詞不同,所以無法直接代換,以下再提供幾個例句給你參考喔:

The moment Helen heard the bad news, she burst out crying.
On/Upon hearing
the bad news, Helen burst out crying.
一聽到那個壞消息,海倫不禁大哭了起來。

The moment I arrived in Paris, I fell in love with this city.
On/Upon arriving 
in Paris, I fell in love with this city.
在我一抵達巴黎時,我就愛上這個城市了。

3. as far as

  • as far as  達到…的程度;達到…的距離

far 的意思為「遠的」,可以用在距離或程度方面,而此用法的 as far as 後面會加上名詞

I’ve read as far as the fifth chapter, but I still need to read three more chapters.
我已經讀到書的第五章節了,但我還需要再讀三個章節。

After you reach the summit, I suggest you go as far as the old castle. It’s worth visiting.
你攻頂之後,我建議你再走遠一點到古堡那,那裡很值得一訪。

as far as 除了以上的用法外,還常搭配其他的字形成以下的說法,帶有「範圍、限度」之意:

❶ as far as [something] is concerned  關於某事物

這個意思就和 about 和 with regard to 的意思差不多,也作 so far as [something] is concerned。

As far as the budget is concerned, the company decided to sponsor our event.
關於預算的部分,那家公司決定贊助我們的活動了。

As far as speaking English is concerned, Rudy is doing pretty well. However, she should improve her writing.
在英文口說方面,露比表現得很好,不過,她應該要改善寫作能力。

❷ as far as I am concerned  就我而言

這個用法可以用來表達個人意見,與 in my opinion 語意類似,也作 so far as I am concerned(I am 可以自行代換成其他人稱)。

As far as I’m concerned, we had better cancel the trip this weekend as the typhoon is coming.
依我看來,我們最好取消這週末的旅行,因為颱風要來了。

As far as Columbia’s concerned, Columbus is her ideal lover.
對哥倫比亞來說,哥倫布就是她的理想情人。

⚠️ 這個用法很常在議論文中使用,但小心不要和 I think 一起用喔,因為 as far as I am concerned 已經有「我覺得…」的概念在。

As far as I am concerned, I think we should adopt Adam’s method. ❌
As far as I am concerned, we should adopt Adam’s method. ⭕️
I think we should adopt Adam’s method. ⭕️
我認為我們應該採用亞當的方法。

❸ as far as I know  就我所知

這裡是指某人基於自己知道的事情表達想法,但不確定確切的事實為何,也作 so far as I know。

As far as I know, Tracy won’t come to the office until next Monday. She seemed to have caught a cold.
就我所知,崔西要到下禮拜一才會進辦公室,她好像感冒了。

The party will start one hour later, as fas as we know. So, you don’t need to hurry.
就我們所知,派對會延後一小時才開始,所以,你不需要那麼匆忙。

❹ as far as I can tell/see/remember  按照我所理解/看見/記得

此用法和以上的 as far as I know  類似,亦用於表達個人想法,也作 so far as I can tell/see/remember。

As far as the doctor could tell, my grandma could live no longer than three to six months.
就那位醫師所判斷,我奶奶再活不過三到六個月。

As far as I can remember, Denis moved to Japan last year. So, this address is invalid.
就我所記得的,丹尼斯去年搬到日本了。所以,這個地址是無效的。

❺ as far as it goes 在一定程度上還不錯

指的是某事物已經很不錯了,但隱含著還可以更好。

The newbie’s project is pretty good, as far as it goes.
以新人的程度來說,他做的企劃很不錯呢。

It’s a good article as far as it goes, but there are still a few mistakes.

小試身手 ✏️

學習完以上的觀念,來練習看看你是否完全理解了吧!以下的句子請依照語意填入 as long as、as soon as、as far as 吧!(要忽略大小寫唷)

① __________ I arrive at the hotel, I will send a message to you.

As soon as I arrive at the hotel, I will send a message to you.
我一到飯店就會傳訊息給你。

➡️ 強調到了之後就會馬上傳訊息,有時間上的先後順序,所以會用 as soon as。

② __________ you practice speaking English every day, you will be able to pass the speaking test.

As long as you practice speaking English every day, you will be able to pass the speaking test.
只要你每天練習說英文,你就能夠通過口說考試的。

➡️ 練習說英文是要每天做的,不會馬上就能通過考試,所以會使用 as long as。

③ Mom asked us to wash our hands __________ we arrived home.

Mom asked us to wash our hands as soon as we arrived home.
媽媽要求我們一回到家就要馬上洗手。

➡️ 回家和洗手這兩件事是有先後順序的,回家後要馬上洗手,所以會用 as soon as 表示動作先後喔。

④ __________ I could remember, Richard was the last person to leave the office.

As far as I could remember, Richard was the last person to leave the office yesterday.
就我所記得的,理察是昨天最後離開辦公室的人。

➡️ 這題應該很明顯,句中有 I could remember,搭配語意就會填可以一起連用的 as far as。

⑤ You will arrive at the destination __________ you follow this route.

You will arrive at the destination as long as you follow this route.
只要你按照這個路線,你就能抵達目的地。

➡️ 從句子可得知還沒按路線也還沒抵達,也不太可能馬上抵達,但只要達成案路線走的條件,就可以實現到達目的地這件事,所以會選 as long as。

That’s All for Today

以上這三個用法希望你都會用了,不會再將它們混淆啦!

學英文這條路很漫長,看到進步需要一段時間,所以最後想送你們一句話:It doesn’t matter how slowly you go as long as you don’t stop.(只要你堅持不懈,步伐很慢也沒關係。)
