    1. after與afterward的用法不一樣

    after 在...以後 隨後

    prep. (介係詞 preposition) 亦可做conj. (連接詞 conjunction), a. (形容詞 adjective) 和ad. (副詞 adverb)

    prep. (介係詞 preposition)

    ex: After graduation he went abroad.

    畢業後他去了國外。

    conj. (連接詞 conjunction)

    ex: I will tell you after they leave.

    他們走後我再告訴你。

    a. (形容詞 adjective)

    ex: His health was declining in after years.

    在以後的歲月,他的健康不斷衰退。

    ad. (副詞 adverb)

    ex: 以後,之後

    They arrived shortly after.

    不久以後他們抵達了。

    afterward 之後,以後,後來

    ad. (副詞 adverb)

    ex: You left before eleven. What did you do afterward?

    你十一點之前離開後做什麼去了?

    2. afterward = afterwards

    意思相同 只是afterwards是英國的用法

    【英】=afterward
