    這也剛好承接我所要回答的下個問題

  • Should you care about the differences

    美式與英式英文的差異嗎?

    或許這是必要的

  • It depends on why you're learning English.

    而且這和你為何學習英文息息相關

  • You only need to care about the differences

    你需要了解不同英文間的差異

  • if you're studying for an English exam,

    假如你是在準備英文考試

  • you're applying for or attending an English university

    申請或在以英語為主的大學上學

  • or you're using English professionally for your job.

    或你正專業地使用英文工作

  • Usually in these situations,

    通常在這些情況下

  • you need to pay attention to the spelling

    你需要注意自己的拼字

  • It definitely makes sense to focus on lessons,

    專注在

    僅使用一種類型英文的參考書和老師身上來學習絕對合理

  • It just makes it a little less confusing

    這會使得學習

    不那麼困惑

  • So focus on either British or American English

    所以就專注在英式和美式英文的其中一種吧!
