句子:

1. We were glad that she got admission to the college that she applied to.

(第1句我們老師說他寫錯了 他說應該改成 applied for 為什麼?)

    這種問題千萬不要背文法

    最好是用理解的

    這樣才能舉一反三

    for的原意是"為了..."

    也就是你做某件事到底是為了什麼

    這時候會用for來補充說明

    to則是表達"接受的對象"

    也就是接受你這個動作的對象是誰

    以你的例句來說

    We were glad that she got admission to the college that she applied for.

    "admission to the college "=>這是你申請的目的

    也就是你是為了得到學校的准許入學才去申請

    因此用"apply for"才符合語意

    希望有幫助到您

    以下為Adam大師的回答--

    如果你要以 apply 做"申請"意思來用的話,apply to 跟 apply for 應是有差別的:

    apply to + 申請的對象(如公司、學校、機構等)

    apply for + 你所要申請的標的物(如職位、學籍、許可等)

    故就你的求職信上,若你是以 position 為受詞的話,position 應是"標的物",故用 "apply for a position" 較為恰當。

    =======================================================

    另外,以下為劍橋線上英文字典的釋義,若當"申請"的意思時:

    apply (REQUEST)

    圖片參考:http://dictionary.cambridge.org/assets/phonetics/0...

    verb [I]

    to request something, usually officially, especially by writing or sending in a form:

    By the time I saw the job advertised it was already too late to apply.

    Please apply in writing to the address below.

    We've applied to a charitable organization for a grant for the project.

    [+ to infinitive] Tim's applied to join the police.

    可見 apply to +對象(人/學校/機構...);而apply for+目標物(如以上例句是the project),其實可以用在同一句子裡,apply to 對象 for 東西/事物....

    同時apply to也有"適用於/應用於xxxx"的意思

    apply (RELATE TO)

    圖片參考:http://dictionary.cambridge.org/assets/phonetics/0...

    verb [I]

    (especially of rules or laws) to have a connection or be important:

    That bit of the form is for UK citizens - it doesn't apply to you.

    Those were old regulations - they don't apply any more.

    apply to somebody / apply for something 也就是說 apply to 人 / apply for 事務
