A lot of students ask me about the difference between talk to and talk with.

很多学生问我“talk to”和“talk with”的区别

The answer is that there’s essentially NO difference when two people are having a conversation, and both of them are speaking. You can say “Sue is talking to John” or “Sue is talking with John” – they’re the same!

答案是,当两个人都在说话时,它们两个本质上没有区别。你可以说“Sue is talking to John”或者“Sue is talking with John”,它们都是一样的!



Some people claim that talk to should be used when it’s only one person speaking, and talk with should be used when it’s more of a two-sided discussion.

有些人认为当只有一个人在说话的时候应该用talk to,当双方都在讨论的时候应该用talk with。

However, in practice, many native speakers use both interchangeably.

其实在实际应用时,母语是英语的人都互相替换使用这两给短语。

Here are some examples.

Can I talk to you for a minute?

= Can I talk with you for a minute?

我能和你说会儿话么?

Brian’s over there, talking to Matt.

= Brian’s over there, talking with Matt.

布莱恩在那边和马特说话。

I talked to my boss and she said I could take a day off.

= I talked with my boss and she said I could take a day off.

我和老板谈过,她说我可以请一天假。

Here are some other combinations of talk + preposition:

其他talk加介词的短语

Talk About + (Topic/Person)

This is the most common way to express speaking about a topic. The topic can be serious or not so serious.

这是表达谈论一个话题最常见的方式。话题可以很严肃,也可以不那么严肃。

They always talk about me behind my back.

他们总在我背后谈论我。

(behind my back = when I’m not present/listening)

在我背后=当我不在场或者听不见时

discuss= talk about

✘ We discussed about the problem.

✔ We discussed the problem.

=We talked about the problem.

Talk Over / Talk Through + (Problem/Issue)

We use talk over and talk through to describe a more detailed, in-depth discussion, often when there’s a decision to be made, or a problem or conflict that needs to be resolved. Talk through can also be used for explanation of a process step by step.

我们用talk over和talk through来描述更详细、更深入的讨论,通常是需要做出决定、需要解决问题或冲突。Talk through也可以用于一步一步地解释一个过程。



I’m not about to buy a car on a whim. I need to talk it over with my wife first.

我不会心血来潮就买一辆车。我得先和我妻子商量一下。

(on a whim = on impulse, spontaneously)

心血来潮=突发奇想,冲动,自发地

我和我的商业伙伴讨论了一下,并提出了一个计划。

(came up with = created/invented)

提出=创建/发明

如果你对这段关系不满意,你应该和你的男朋友好好谈谈。

(= discuss a problem in depth)

(= explain a process)
