Student or Learner
I'm quite confused about these expression which look very similar:
may as well
might as well
may as well ... as ...
might as well ... as ...
Could you help me?
Thanks in advance.
Both "may as well" and "might as well" mean "had better(do sth.)", while the latter ismore polite than the former.
e.g.Since you have such a good job, you might as well keep the present one
Both "may well" and "might well" mean "quite possibly" while the former has a more possibility than the latter.
e.g He may well say so. = He may quite possibly say so.
Oh, and you should either change your Member Type to 'teacher' (if that's true) or (as I suspect is true) say in your posts that you're not one - and I don't mean either 'you may as well' or 'you might as well' do it; I mean 'you had better' do it (which doesn't mean the same).
