首先,一起看看下面这些句子:

We managed to fulfill the task ahead of time.

We tried to fulfill the task ahead of time.

你可以说出这两个句子的区别么?其实,两句话的区别在于manage to do和 try to do 含义的不同。

1.manage to do 表示“设法做成某事”,强调做成的结果或希望成功的意图。

But if we insist on speaking, we can manage to do it.

但只要我们坚持说,就一定可以做到。

2.try to do 则表示“努力做某事”,只强调努力的过程,对其结果无限制,可以成功或失败。

Whatever helps you relax, try to do more of it.

任何能帮助你放松的事情,尽量多做。

现在之前例句的区别你知道了吗?

We managed to fulfill the task ahead of time.

我们成功地提前完成了任务。

We tried to fulfill the task ahead of time.

我们努力提前完成了任务(成功与否并不知晓)。
