DSE English Paper 4：Group discussion開頭
Let’s get started.
We’re going to prepare a handbook of advice for parents on how to bring up their children.
Today, we’re here to discuss what to include in the handbook.
As we all know, many parents and children ignore family relationships and parents spend little time talking to their children. A lot of family problems may arise.
Well, there are a lot of family problems we can include in the handbook. Let’s discuss them first.
Personally, I think that nowadays, many parents have to work long hours, for example, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. As a result, they overlook their children. Therefore, we need to point out that the lack of communication will cause a lot of family problems.
What do you think?
You are right.
The lack of communication is common in Hong Kong and this leads to a lack of mutual understanding or even conflicts between family members.
However, I think that the quality of communication is more important than quantity. Even if they have opportunities to communicate with their children, they don’t know how to do it effectively.
It is no use spending hours questioning their children on their exam results or things they don’t want to talk about. Parents should learn to share the children’s feelings and other interesting topics.
Do you agree?
DSE Speaking Group discussion 技巧
(2001 CE Paper 4 Set 12.1)
Your group wants to organize a karaoke evening for your school. You are now planning the event.
I suggest going to karaoke lounges (提議) like Neway (例子) because there is good and advanced audio equipment. (原因)
Yes, that’s a great point (回應) and we can sing many new songs there. (原因)
I agree that the audio system is good and new songs are available there (回應), but I think that karaoke lounges are not large enough for us to hold this event. (論點).
I think the school hall may be a better choice for this event. (新提議). The PA system is not bad in the hall, right? (原因)
Shall we invite some pop singers (提議) like Leo Ku or Kay Tse (例子) to come because they are very popular in Hong Kong? (原因)
I believe that if they come to join us, many teachers and students will come to our karaoke evening. (假設推論)
