这一对短语看来好像是同义语,其实并不然。

at present的意思是“现在”、“眼下”,相当于英语的now或at the present time;for the present的意义是“暂时”、“在当前短时间内”,相当于英语的for the time being。

She is at present away on her holiday in Hawaii.目前她在夏威夷度假。At present he is Professor of English at the University of Hong Kong.现在他是香港大学的英文教授。

We stay in his house for the present.我们现在暂时住在他的家里。

I can't remember his name for the present.他的名字我一时记不起来了。

You may leave the matter as it is for the present.你可以暂且让事情保持现状。

下面是英语初学者常犯的错误:

They are in Beijing for the present.(错)

They are in Beijing at present.(对)他们目前在北京。

That will be enough at present.(错)

That will be enough for the present.(对)就当前来说,这已足够了。

另一要注意的是,at present不能改作at the present;for the present不能改为for present。
