    (1) 考慮未發生的情況:

    She likes painting. She takes painting lessons every Saturday, but she will not have (not/have) lessons this month because her teacher will travel (travel) in Europe.


    (2) 考慮已過去的情況:

    She likes painting. She takes painting lessons every Saturday, but she did not have (not/have) lessons this month because her teacher travelled (travel) in Europe.

    如果用你的答案來「夾硬」解釋番轉頭,你可以話由於句子首部份用了 present tense,所以整句也跟著用 present tense 的模式。

    因此,this month(視為一般情況) she does not have lessons,是因為她的老師正在外遊(用 present continuous tense),即 her teacher is travelling in Europe.

    我個人覺得其實你用 is not having lessons 都可以的。

    因為 near future 都可以用 present continuous tense。



    2014-10-28 23:41:08 補充:

    Present Continuous

    USE 1 Now

    USE 2 Longer Actions in Progress Now

    USE 3 Near Future

    USE 4 Repetition and Irritation with "Always"

    請留意前句子是 Present simple. (likes, takes) 談論是現在的事 (regular 常做)

    this month 多數講 present

    have 是 transitive verb, (可作state verb) 多數不用 continuous tense, 除了特別強調現在這一刻 action

    I am having lunch now,

    Have 這個字不同 travel

    “is travelling “是講這段時期 (this month) 正在旅行

    我認為關鍵是 time reference "this month".

    If "next" or "last" is used instead, there is no question about using 未來式 或 過去式 respectively.

    講話時間 could be anytime of the month. It'll never be wrong to refer it as "current" situation. (or sth true for this month)
