容易用錯的字:aboard vs abroad

由於 aboard 和 abroad 串法相近,很多學生把它們混淆。

Aboard 的意思是:在交通工具上,如飛機,船,和火車  

All passengers were aboard the plane.

The bus crashed into a lamp post; all passengers aboard were killed. 

Abroad 的意思是:在國外 

I have been working abroad since last year. 

Peter and I are studying abroad. 

如果你總是把它們混淆,可以幻想交通工具上有一塊板 (a board),那就可以把 aboard 的意思牢記下來。
