Hi gogogo,

I take a bus to school = I go to school by bus.

(It also may mean that there are several buses or bus routes to the school, and I pick one of these.)


I take the bus to school - here the ones invovlved the conversation know that there is one bus (or one bus route) which takes to the scool, and I take this specific bus; here we talk about the "bus to school", or more precisely the "bus which goes to the school".

(It also may mean there are several different means of transportation to the school, and I pick the bus.)

I make a shy attempt to express it in Chinese...

我坐公交車上學去.

(上學)我坐到學校去的那輛公交車.

But I am not sure... Fortunately we have Yunqing here...

That's a nice attempt Montanius.

Just need to rephrase "我坐到學校去的那輛公交車". It should be "我坐那辆公交车去学校".

By the way, there are several Chinese terms used for Bus.
China 公交车
Taiwan 公车
HK/SG 巴士

上面這兩句中文意思應該都一樣.-我搭公車去學校. 但對英語而言卻有點不一樣...英語好難喔....

不知道其他的朋友有沒有不一樣的看法?

Kathy, "a" bus 意思是我搭公车去学校,并没有指明哪一辆公车。"The" bus 指的是我搭这辆公车去学校。所以中文也有不同。

英語是:I take a bus to school. I go to school by bus. 而不能說I take the bus to school?
