1- In the future people will can develop more skills.
Habilidades no futuro? Temos, mas não com a forma can. Para isso, temos o to be able to:
In the future, people will be able to develop more skills.
Be able to também pode ser usado em substituição docan para as situações de presente e passado:
I can drive well orI am able to drive well.
I could manage a department in the pastor I was able to manage a department in the past.
2- I hardly ever work. I am really hardworking.
Are you sure? Uma colocação muito naïve,(inocente), mas que muda totalmente o sentido da oração. Veja:
I hardly ever work = Eu raramente, quase nunca trabalho…
Se você éhardworking,certamente dirá:
I work hard.
3- We were such busy that we almost didn’t talk to each other.
So eSuch são usados para ênfase.
Temos duas maneiras de expressar esta mensagem:
a) We were in such a busy day that we almost didn’t talk to each other.
Uma fórmula para ajudar: such + a/an + adjetivo (busy) + substantivo (day)
b) The day was so busy that we almost didn’t have time to talk to each other.
Outra fórmula: so + adjetivo (so busy) + that
Para outros casos, veja:
c) He plays tennis so well that everybody believes he is a professional player.
Fórmula: so + advérbio (so well)
d) There were so many people waiting for the actor that he didn’t even have time to talk to the press.
Fórmula: so + determinante (much / many) + substantive + that
