You can persuade sb to do sth in many different ways, for example by making them believe it is right, by showing them that they will gain sth from it, or by giving them sth in return. 当后接带to的不定式时,persuade和convince均表示说服某人去做某事。persuade sb to do sth可以采取不同方式,如使人相信这件事是对的或有利可图,或给予某物作回报Nothing would persuade them to go back again.什么也不能让他们再回去了。Subsequently he was persuaded by bribes to reverse his judgement.后来还是贿赂让他改变了原来的意见。When you convince sb to do sth, you usually make them believe that it is the right or the best thing to do. * convince sb to do sth通常指使人相信这样做是对的或这样做最好He convinced me to get legal advice.他劝我去寻求法律咨询。The use of convince with this meaning is fairly recent and is more common in American English. Many speakers of British English prefer to use persuade and they use convince only with the meaning 'to make sb believe that sth is true'. * convince的这种用法是最新用法,在美式英语中较常见。说英式英语的人更喜欢用persuade,用convince只表示说服某人相信某事是真实的He convinced me that he was right.他说服我他没错。 see also convince convince ˌwin sb ˈover
