可能我们最熟悉的“有”是have/has/had, there be结构了，但是频繁地使用这两个表达可能会出现审美疲劳，那么除此之外，我们还可以使用什么词汇或结构，既可以表达出“有”的概念，又能够使得语句问题变幻多姿呢?
1. 客观存在类 provide/offer/available
Q: Is your hometown a village or a city?
A: My hometown is a city, which provides convenient transport of subways, buses and taxis, offers various shopping experiences with its shopping malls of all types and sizes. And numerous hospitals and schools are available too.
2. 可以表示“骄傲”的“有”, enjoy/boast/home
Q: Where do you want to work in future?
A: I would like to work in the US in future. It enjoys the name of the Free Land and boasts the reputation of Where anything is possible, which is worth being figured out by myself. And besides, that country homes the best IT companies like Microsoft, Apple or Facebook. I believe I could make a big shot there.
3. 表示“附近有”nearby/close by/around the corner/ close to/next to/ adjacent to/handy/at hand/within walking distance
Q: Is the life around your house/flat convenient?
A: It is pretty convenient. Right next to our neighborhood is a large supermarket which provides whatever you need for a comfy life. A subway station is just around the corner, adjacent to a bus stop where 7 bus routes are available. And there is even a post office and a bank simply within walking distances.
a. Which do you prefer, big shopping malls or little shops?
I prefer a big shopping mall. It comes with various shops and facilities like a cinema or a café. A wide range of adventure options are just there waiting for you to explore.
b. Do you like visiting museums?
No doubts. In Beijing, you don’t have to travel far to find one. Actually a historical museum stands 2 bus stops’ away from our neighborhood and I always go there with my friends on weekends to see those tools, pictures and other exhibits it displays.
c. Do you like to live in a village or in a city?
I like to live in a village, which can be easy and cozy. When you take a walk in the country road, a tiny brook or a cute rabbit may suddenly jump into your eyes. Before you know it, your feet may have already brought you to the beginning of an endless cornfield. It can be so quiet at night and Mother nature presents you a dark velvet sky dotted with sparkling crystals. You know what? Life in a village will never fail to provide refreshing and surprising experiences to those who really enjoy it.
