The movie is bound/sure to be a mega-hit and popular. 這部電影注定/肯定會大受歡迎。

也可以用 there is/are bound/sure to be 表達我們很確定某件事會存在於未來。

likely/unlikely 的用法

likely 和 unlikely 為形容詞。something is likely to happen 或 it’s likely that something will happen 意思是某件事很可能會發生或是被預期會發生。

如果說 something is unlikely to happen 或 it’s unlikely that something will happen 意思是某件事有可能不會發生。


1. It is likely/unlikely that + 子句(主詞+ 動詞…)

It’s likely that in a few months we will have our separate ways after graduation. 很可能再過幾個月,畢業後我們就會分道揚鑣。
It’s unlikely that the teachers will feel sad about the new school year. 老師們不太可能對新學年感到難過。


2. 主詞 + be likely/unlikely + to + 不定詞

She is likely to pass the exam. 她很有可能通過考試。
We are unlikely to understand each other. 我們不太可能互相理解。

因為 likely 和 unlikely 為形容詞,所以可以有比較級或最高級的形式,或放在 quite 和 very 的後面。

They are the most likely to join the International competition. 他們最有可能參加國際比賽。

在肯定句中可以把 definitely 和 probably 放在主動詞之前和助動詞(如果有)之後。

在否定句中 definitely 和 probably 要放在助動詞之前。

但如果不用縮寫的話 definitely 和 probably 要放在助動詞後面 not 前面。
