Welcome once again to Berlitz WordMaster's continuing travelogue! Here's a “postcard” from overseas to keep you dreaming of adventure!

Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違えやすいボキャブラリー
ABROAD   外国で、外国へ(に)


  • Abroad means in or to a foreign country.

    Be Careful[1]! When you use the word abroad, the country you are talking about does NOT necessarily have to be overseas.

    Be Careful[2]! We do NOT say “IN abroad”, “TO abroad”, etc.
  • abroad は、外国で、外国へ(に)、という意味です。

    注意[1]:abroad という単語を使うとき、必ずしも海外(海を越える国)をさすとは限りません。

    注意[2]:in や to をつけて、“IN abroad”、“TO abroad” のようには言いません。
