1. "remain" vừa là nội động từ, vừa là linking verb

2. Cách dùng

2.1. Mang nghĩa "tiếp tục, duy trì"

=to continue to be in a particular situation or condition / to stay in the same place or in the same condition

IELTS TUTOR xét ví dụ:

    • The dictator has remained in power for over 20 years.

    • Most commentators expect the basic rate of tax to remain at 25 percent. [ + to infinitive ] 
    • A great many things remain to be done (= have not yet been done).
    •  He remained silent. 
    • It remains a secret. 
    • The bank will remain open while renovations are carried out.

    2.2. Mang nghĩa "ở nguyên tại chỗ nào"

    =to stay in a particular place or position and not leave it

    IELTS TUTOR lưu ý:

    • remain at/in/with

    IELTS TUTOR xét ví dụ:

    • You must remain in bed for three days after surgery. 
    • His family remained at home while he looked for work in London.
    • The doctor ordered him to remain in bed for a few days. 

    2.3. Mang nghĩa "vẫn, tồn tại"

    IELTS TUTOR xét ví dụ:

    • Only a handful of these rare fish remain in Scotland. 
    • Although the area has certainly improved, much remains to be accomplished.


    to keep or continue to have something (giữ lấy)

    IELTS TUTOR xét ví dụ:

    • She has lost her battle to retain control of the company. 
    • He managed to retain his dignity throughout the performance. 
    • She succeeded in retaining her lead in the second half of the race. 
    • I have a good memory and am able to retain (= remember) facts easily.


    IELTS TUTOR lưu ý:

    • REMAIN: giữ lại trạng thái hiện tại, hoặc vị trí hiện tại
    • RETAIN = keep (giữ lấy)
    • Remain + adj vì chức năng của remain là 1 linking verb còn Retain thì không
