•Note that when you are using the verbbelievewiththat-clause in order to state a negative opinion or belief, you normally makebelievenegative, rather than the verb. For instance, it is more usual to say 'He didn't believe she could do it...' than 'He believed she couldn't do it'. The same applies to other verbs with a similar meaning, such asconsider,suppose, andthink. I don't consider that you kept your promise... I don't suppose he ever saw it... I don't think he saw me.
•注意，當 believe 和 that 從句連用陳述否定的觀點或看法時，通常對 believe 而不是從句中的動詞加以否定。例如，通常說 He didn't believe she could do it（他認為她做不到），而很少說 He believed she couldn't do it。同樣的句型結構也適用於 consider, suppose 和 think 等意思相近的動詞：I don't consider that you kept your promise（我認為你沒有遵守諾言），I don't suppose he ever saw it（我想他從沒見過它），I don't think he saw me（我認為他沒有看到我）。
