  • first line is correct





    second line should be


    You have to pay the membership fee when the contract EXPIRES


    "when it is expired"... sounds awkward in english



  • 對, 如果要好d就係


    You have to pay the membership fee before the contract has expired



  • Support 用 expires!





    其實 after 梗係 has expired,


    但係 when 都用, 似乎係因為廣東話只有 "expire [左]", 個[左] 字飛唔走, "has expired" 飛唔走 =.=



  • 這個是外國的網頁send給我, 提我要renew membership中用到的. 所以我會咁建議.佢係用...before the contract has expired...



  • before the contract has expired.............岩, 可以.





    其實 when, before, after 都可以, 只係背景意義語氣唔同.





    when...expires..... 唔係估你點點點, 只係客觀講出幾時再畀$





    before..has expired...... 拿, 快手快手, go go (pay me) (正面)





    after..has expired....... 拿, 如果到時咁, 你要點點點 (反面假設)



  • when...expires 是state fact


    before ....has expired 是telling you that you must do so, 如果唔係就會無會藉咁.


    after...has expired 即係有個寬限期.


    如果太家都係講要交會費的話.



  • after...has expired 即係有個寬限期.

    有個寬限期.. How Come?


    你估姐, 可以有可以冇.


    只係一般可以追交.





    可以冇寬限期 ----------- 12.31 到期日, 繼續 enjoy,





    1月1日至1月3日, 你唔來玩一件事, 總之你冇權玩 !!


    (因為你 "have to" pay 而冇 fullfill)





    1月4日, 到場畀$, 即玩.


    係追交, 今年到期日仍然係 12.31



  • lol, still arguing for what leh...





    板主都走佐



  • xx,





    你咁分析都帶出一樣既野, 唔講語氣, 好簡單..... "原教旨主義" stick strictly to the words!





    when : state fact, no other detail





    before : 你事前有權畀$而續會


    (小心斷會, 交 surcharge 乜都得)





    after : 你有權事後畀$而續會


    (耐成點冇標準, 一兩日常理一定得)





    執行寬緊不能斷定.



  • 幾多版長命過版主存在係 she.com?





    你 LOL for what leh, 我明既 ^^
