be interested后接什么非谓语动词


You are right, we are not interested _________ to stories, but now we’d be interested _________ your story.

A. in listening, in hearing               B. to listen, to hear

C. in listening, to hear                   D. to listen, in hearing

【分析】此题容易误选A,因为 be interested in 是大家熟悉的结构,in 是介词,其后接动词自然应用动名词。但是,从句意来看,此题的最佳答案应是C。为此请注意以下区别:

be interested in doing sth = 对做某事感兴趣(指一般性的动作)

be interested to do sth = 很有兴趣做某事,很想做某事(指尚未发生的动作)


He is interested in listening to stories. 他对听故事很感兴趣。

We’d be interested to hear your story. 我们很想听听你的故事。


be keen on doing sth = 热衷于做某事(指一般性的动作)

be keen to do sth = 渴望做某事(指尚未发生的动作)

He is keen on playing tennis. 他很喜欢打网球。

I can’t drive yet, but I’m keen to learn. 我还不会开车,但我很想学。

但是,以上用法是不可以随便推而广之的,因为并不是所有的“be + 形容词”都可同时接不定式或“介词 + 动名词”的。如:

■要表示“喜欢做某事”,英语可用 be fond of doing sth,但不用 be fond to do sth。如:


误:He is fond to listen to pop music.

正:He is fond of listening to pop music.

■要表示“忙于做某事”,英语可用 be busy (in) doing sth,但不用 be busy to do sth。如:


误:Mary is busy to study for her exams.

正:Mary is busy studying for her exams.

■要表示“厌烦做某事”,英语可用 be tired of doing sth,但不用 be tired to do sth。如:


误:I’m tired to listen to your criticisms.

正:I’m tired of listening to your criticisms.

■要表示“做某事做迟了”,英语可用 be late (in) doing sth,但不用 be late to do sth。如:


误:He was late to come to the office this morning.

正:He was late (in) coming to the office this morning.

■要表示“做某事有经验”,英语可用 be experienced at [in] doing sth,但不用 be experienced to do sth。如:


误:He is experienced to teach children.

正:He is experienced at [in] teaching children.
