【Grammar Tip】

It's one thing to practice a language, but it's another to study in it.

中文裡常說「...是一回事,但...又是另一回事」,在英文裡就可以用這個句型:
It's one thing to..., but it's another to....


EX:

1. It's one thing to play with an animal, but it's another to own one as a pet.

2. It's one thing to visit a place, but it's another to live there.

3. It's oner thing to say tou are going to travel around the world, but it's another to have the money to do it.
