DSE English paper 3 格式

大家要記住 DSE English 卷二卷三其中一個要求是Language & Organizations,除了格式外,語境意識都同樣重要,大家一定要熟讀,尤其 DSE English paper 3 ,因為時間緊逼容易出錯;以下我會跟大家分享及總結,以下幾項 DSE Eng paper 3 常見的文體格式及語境意識包括:letter, Email, Report, Proposal, Speech, Article 希望可以幫到大家:)

DSE English paper 3
格式1: Letter

Letter 格式

Letter 書信寫作格式 Format

書信是最常用 Business Letter 以及Letter to the editor 等形式,同學在寫作時可以參作以下格式﹕

不知道收信人姓名:
上款是Dear Sir/Madam
下款是 Yours faithfully,
  
知道收信人姓名:
上款是 Dear Mr. Chan
下款是 Yours sincerely,
 
上面那些學校都是這樣教的,但我會教你特別一點,如果到時考試緊張,可以用Best regards, 兩個情況都比較合適

進階語境意識

每次考書信都有目的 (writing purpose),要根據題目作出改變;而大家可以記住兩個萬用句式,能夠簡單直接地表達該文章的寫作目的﹕
 

1. I am writing + to + v. + 詳細資料 

Example: I am writing to request a change of performance date in the 2000 Hong Kong Youth Arts Festival.
我這次寫信的目的是要求更改2000年香港青年藝術節的演出日期。

Example: We would like to request a change of performance date in the 2000 Hong Kong Youth Arts Festival.

以上兩個句式基本上能夠在任何writing purpose下使用,以下是在不同寫作目的下的實際用法例子﹕

Dear Mr Bay,

Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We highly appreciate your keen enthusiasm to provide the best opportunities for refugees and to support Victoria Cup. However, we are afraid to inform you that we are unable to accept your application. Reasons will be given in the following.

There are chief rationales behind this decision. Firstly, it is a requirement for the ball boy /girl to be able to speak English and Cantonese. But, children of your centre lack the ability to speak both languages. Secondly, the children are too young, with a view to maintaining safety. In public relations, it has been decided that volunteers must be of the age of 11 or above. However, children at your centre are 10 years old or younger, hence it would be unsuitable.

Having gone through our reasoning to express our gratitude for your endeavours, we would like to offer a few actions to contribute to charity. 

HKD $ 500,000 is to be a donator to your charity under the condition that one of your rooms is to be made into a gym, named “Lara Terranova Gym”. Moreover, we are going to pay a courtesy visit to your charity centre. In addition, 50 complimentary tickets to the Victoria Cup is be given to your charity

The above has been the contribution to your charity that we would like to offer. It is hoped that this would be helpful for your charity, We would like to once again express our most sincere gratitude for your aspirations, and are looking forward to your response.

Yours Sincerely, 

Nico Lin

Subject: Feedback Regarding Your Sample Artworks

Dear Mr Au,

I am writing to give you some feedback on the samples that you sent us for Escape to Hong Kong Island. The following are the details.

Firstly, we appreciate your efforts and your artwork on the map is very good. Based on your artwork on our questionnaire results from people who tested Escape to Hong Kong Island, most of the parents and young teenagers love it, which is successful.

Nevertheless, we would appreciate it if some amendments could be made.

Regarding the artwork on the cards, please make it less violent. As our target audience of the game is young teenagers, their parents could control whether the teens could buy our game. From our questionnaire, most of the young teens love your artwork, but most of the parents do not. Therefore, we would be grateful if you could change the artwork so that it is not too violent or too adult and with less blood; but still appeal to teenagers. We hope that parents will be willing to buy the game.

As for the text on the map, many of our respondents found it hard to read. Therefore, it is suggested that you change the colour of the text from red to a darker colour.

Last but not least, please be reminded that the deadline of the submission of your final artwork is 27th April. We would appreciate it if you could send us your artwork on time.

To conclude, there are both successful parts and some parts required to be changed. We truly appreciate your efforts. Thanks for your help in advance.

We look forward to receiving your final artwork.

Yours truly, 

Sammy Tsang

「無人被小」 
(Spencer 唔係想講粗口,大家冷靜點)
 
「無人 – 在報告入面,我們不會用 you /I 要盡量避免
 
「被 」– 反而我們會用多一些被動式(Passive Voice),例如以下句式:
  • It is noted that 句子
  • It is reported that 句子
  • It is recommend that 句子
「小」 – 寫小標題:

Report on Funding Options for Escape to Hong Kong Island

 

Introduction

This reports investigates the pros and cons of the two funding options for our new game Escape to Hong Kong Island, namely Gamezstart and the Acorn Grant

 

Findings

Gamestart

For the advantages, first and foremost, we can advertise our game on its website, which is the most well known funding website for board games companies. As it is both online and global, we can attract investors anywhere in the world to invest in our game. More importantly, this option is ultimately flexible as we can set the target amount of money we need to raise for our game. All these allow us to receive funding to continue developing our game.

 

As for the disadvantages, firstly, by the time we have finished developing the game, we should send one copy of the game to each investor. As our game may be heavy, international shipping may also be expensive, eventually consuming most of the money raised. Prohibitive shipping costs aside, our funding project may also be ignored by investors if big well-known companies launch projects at Gamezstart at the same time. This may culminate in the scenario that we may have to abandon the project given that we cannot meet our target.

 

Acorn Grant

With regard to the upsides, the grant offers a one-time award of HK$25000 with no strings attached, without any other conditions required. Moreover, Melaka Bank, the organizer of the grant, will provide sound financial advice and advertising wizardry. In addition, the bank will also assist us for one year after winning the award.

 

In view of its downsides, our company may lose autonomy to the bank as it has been said the bank may control everything of the company it sponsors. Besides, competition for the grant is fierce and therefore, there is only a small chance to win the award. In year 2016, there were 287 applicants but there was only one winner. All those disadvantages may limit our development.

 

Conclusion

It is hoped that the best funding option can be found given the above analysis of the advantages and disadvantages.

同報告的格式非常相似,都是用 【無人被小】 的技巧,可以確保不要用錯。

格式5: Speech 格式

Speech 演講詞格式 Format

Introduction (引言) :
 
Step 1: Good morning / afternoon, everyone.
Step 2: Welcome to the assembly today. I am Chris Wong, the President of Student Union.
Step 3: Thank you very much for coming to + the +活動
Step 4: Today I would like to share with you

進階語境意識

其實除了基本格式,最重要的是要知道每種文體背後的語境意識。因為Speech 本身需要互動一點,所以你可以運用以下技巧作文。
 
在引言部份,你可以嘗試以下幾種方式去開始你的文章﹕
1. Personal touch
  • I believe / I hold strong belief / I bet many if you experienced something similar to what happened to me, so it is normal for us to assume that________________________.
  • It is likely that we all share similar experience. No wonder we share unanimous views / we are on the same page that ________________________
 2. 年輕的我…. 以前的我是多麼幼稚…
  • When I was younger, I would think that ___________________
  • As a secondary student who did not have much life experience, I used to believe that ____________________.

3. 誤會了

  • In the past, I also held the misconceived notion that ________________
  • Echoed with many people, I was mistaken about ____________________, thinking that __________________________. 

而在Speech的正文部份,大家可以多用短句:

因為是互動性較高,可以加強同觀眾交流,而很多考生都忽略了這點,在Speech 都只是用一些深字,一埋inversion (倒裝句),所以無論你英文考試是想求合格,定5**,你都一定要注意!
  • Act now!
  • Just go for it!
  • Stay tuned!
  • Stay in touch!
  • Don’t waver.
  • Trust me. It works well.
 

同時,你可以用 Mission 使命來輔助自己闡述內容﹕

  • Why should I share with you here summoning up my courage? I want to change the community.
  • In pursuit of a sense of purpose, I choose to stand on the stage to make a change in the community.
最後在結尾部份,你可以這樣完結你的文章﹕
 
1. 更了解
I sincerely hope you will gain more inspiration by gaining deeper insights into _____________
 
2. 學會多角度
One of the purposes of this speech is to provide you with different perspective in understanding this issue. If most of you, if not all, can be inspired and ponder, then I have succeeded.

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and all of our honourable guests! Welcome to the Open Day of Kowloon Exotic Pets Hospital, and it is my honour today to be here to speak to you regarding virtual pets and how old people use virtual pets.

Have you ever heard of ‘virtual pets’? Wow, many of you nodded your heads! Yes, virtual pets are the digital application which stimulates online to experience of having a real pet. They are widespread which the cheaper access to the Internet. And to our surprise, there are many old people using virtual pets – from the statistics from Online Today magazine in November 29, 2013, nearly one of four of the pets users are over 65 years old, which is a little less than the percentage of teenagers!

The ole people welcome virtual pets for a variety of reasons. Some of them like to stay at home and let their grandson to teach them how to own a pet online, some of them wanted a pet but it is not allowed in their apartment. Thus, these old people have access to the internet and own their virtual pets! Unbelievable, right? Some of them use it to keep their mind active as they get older, and it is better to spend time on other game sites.

There are a couple of things are old people can do with virtual pets! One of the usages is to own super unusual pets to get excitement. They got a virtual ranch and became the oldest virtual horse whisperers on the web! Another good thing to do is to cross-breed the pets. One of the elderly build a extensive breeding exchange programme of virtual birds online, and swap them to collect special pets!

Apart from entertainment, certain elderly sell virtual pets to get rich! One elderly got different accounts to breed virtual cats and sell them to other online breeders, they even made 50 dollars a month each! They even cross-breed the animals and create upper pets, and the famous online! Can you taste the excitement over these?

I hope you all enjoy my speech and grasp a taste of online virtual pets. Hope you will have a nice day in the hospital and get to know more about special pets! Thank you very much!

Dragon Peak’s Commitment to the Environment in Hong Kong

Dragon Peak Properties (DPP) is a property developer, to many Hongkongers; however, it does not limit its field only on property development. Do you know that DPP is also committed to protecting the environment and is an environmentally friendly company?

DPP has done many things to protect the environment in Hong Kong. From 2000 to 2015, our company’s spending on Green Construction methods has been increasing ever since. We have spent more than 5 billion HKD on the green construction methods, which is the largest amount ever spent among the biggest developers in Hong Kong. more importantly, we are very honoured to receive the Greenest Development Award 2016 in the HKSAR for the first prize – Forest of Dreams Estate. The award was released by Tai Shing Conservation Institute earlier this month.

Apart from spending on green constructs, we also strive to protect the orchids and the butterflies on the Golden Flower Island. The Golden Dragon Tail Butterfly is a precious species in the South China that pollinates the extremely rare Splash of Gold Orchid. This rare and beautiful orchid is only available on the Golden Flower Island. After successfully obtaining the chance of developing in the Golden Flower Island, we understand to a great deal that it is incumbent for us to protect those precious specious. Although only half of the island is restricted by the HKSAR Government for development, we shifted the percentage to maintaining 70% of the island as a protected area. You may think that is all we have done for those species, but that is not the end. We, also chose to construction a wall of vegetations with trees and other plants between the shopping mall and the nature so to keep out the light and noise pollution and consequently, the butterflies will not be disturbed. Having no vehicles and roads such as buses and trains, we provide a green environment for the butterflies and not to disturb them.

We are Dragon Peak Properties and we spare no efforts to protect the environment. We hope to reassure you that we are an environmentally friendly company and to change the misconception that property developers are only concerned about making money.
