英文卷三 Part A Note-taking skill

DSE Eng Paper 3

Part A在聆聽錄音時,note-taking 十分重要。Section A 會有好多長題目,note-taking 得夠詳盡,對你填寫答案更有幫助。

每天聆聽英文能夠令同學對英文更敏感,減少「聽唔明」的機會和出現。建議同學每天聆聽10分鐘英文,(可以多看Netflix, BBC English, TedTalk 等不同的渠道。

先不要開字幕聆聽 不斷不斷重複直至你真的不能寫出片中所說的sentence. 當然Spencer 既堂上也不時訓練學生既note-taking skills,比學生即學即試技巧。

如果大家想練習note-taking技巧,可以多做 DSE Listening Task 4 以及UE Section A的題目

DSE English Paper 3 Part A 爆分 3大神技

好多同學仔可能會覺得 Paper 3  根本冇得準備,只要順其自然就可以啦

但其實喺考英文 Paper 3 前係有準備工作架

想喺 Paper 3 考更高分就可以睇下今日分享嘅內容啦

1. 準備更多英文詞彙

如果你在做 Listening 練習的時候聽不懂或只聽到零星的單字,那麼你需要學習更多 Vocab 

同學可以循著幾個範疇去學習更多詞彙

例如

Occupation, Transportation, Architecture

等等

要記住 Vocab 是不嫌多的

2. 善用符號或縮寫

很多時候會因錄音的對話太快而來不及寫出來,那麼你需要善用符號或縮寫來跟上速度

例如x代表負面的,如x do代表I don’t want to do

如果該字詞太長,我們可以只寫字詞的頭尾,如synchronization可以寫成sync…ation

之後有時間就可以寫回來

3. 避免犯上低級錯誤

如果同學平時在 Listening 都表現得不錯,但總是難有些突破

那麼你有犯過這些低級錯誤嗎?

最常見的低級錯誤有 TensePlural/Singular 和 Pronoun

很多時候都要在填寫前想清楚 Grammar 是否正確

所以同學要聽清楚錄音和思考一下 Grammar 才寫上答案

2. 分豬肉

分段:

A. 睇連接詞 (and/also/next/Don’t forget)

B. each issue/problem 🡪 門對門  (1段1個each issue)

Dear Editorial,

I’m writing to express my anger about the Kowloon Exotic Pets Hospital. This hospital supports the exotic pet trade. It is doing this by helping people keep exotic pets and is only concerned(-ve 字眼) about making money. It should be shut down immediately.

The trade in some exotic pets can have some serious(-ve 形容詞) effects. What if a pet owner no longer wants their pet and lets it go into the wild? This damages the ecosystem. Just look at the recent Hong Kong Times story about the alligator gars. Another point(連接詞) is that some exotic animals carry diseases and this can put the public in danger.

Ms Gau and Mr Howard agreed but pointed out that only full-time staff would be able to assist as part-time staff may finish their shift before the end of a given school group’s visit.

Ms Gau added that part-time staff could help by making worksheets for school groups.

Dr Jones agreed with (同意)(最後決定) the implementation of these points.

DSE 卷三 Part B 9 個常犯錯誤

DSE 卷三 Part B 常犯錯誤

驚跌入 DSE Eng Paper 3 常犯錯 陷阱?DSE Eng Paper 3 點先攞到5**? 正所謂 知己知彼,百戰百勝, 以下細數5個 DSE Eng Paper 3 最多人中嘅 陷阱 。學識點樣避免 ,DSE Eng Paper 3 5** 話咁易!

陷阱 1:分散data

同一個內容重點可能會分散在兩個Data,閱讀Data File時要自己整合,完整寫出重點。

例子1:

Data 1: They have a free programme; they take in all kinds of unwanted exotic pets and look after them until a new home can be found

Data 2: This year the Orphan Programme was again run…

答案: We have been running a completely free of charge Orphan Programme in which we take in all kinds of unwanted exotic pets and look after them till we find a new home for them

例子2:

Email 1: We expect the course to last for 5 hours a day.

Email 2: We will need one more hour for each lesson.

答案: The course is going to last for 6 hours (5+1).

陷阱 2:暗藏重點

每個Task的重點通常列點顯示,但其他部分也會暗藏重點

Can you write the article? As well as the basic facts can you also include:

  • The significance of the restaurant’s name
  • The basic concept of the restaurant

The Eat Yourself Fitter Week Slogan

陷阱 3:電郵的收件人

留意電郵的收件人,是否和Task相關。

指引頁:

Tell them about the contestants.

Data File:

To: Ho Chun Yu

From: Donnie Kwok

Subject: Re: Super Chef

Thank you for agreeing to be in our Super Chef Competition.

陷阱 4:有數字,不容易

數字時間小心陷阱,要特別留意是否有更改

陷阱: I’d like to propose it to be from the third to the ninth.

更改: How about extending it for two more days?

答案: March 3-March 11 (Mar 9 + 2 days = Mar 11)

陷阱We had it from ten till eight last year.

更改Maybe we can extend it for another hour.

答案: 10a.m. – 9 p.m. (8 p.m. + 1 hour = 9 p.m.)

陷阱 5:信件的上款

任何信件的上款不應該寫收件人的全名(千萬不要寫Dear Peter Leung!!)

Formal Letter的上款應該只寫收件人的姓氏Informal Letter的上款應該只寫收件人的名字

Formal Letter

Dear Mr. Leung,

Informal Letter

Dear Peter,

陷阱 6:資料運用

不同Data要互相參照,分辨那項資料是陷阱那些資料真正適用

Data 1:

Top Chef Challenge

Two novice chefs are given a set of ingredients. The chefs’ dishes are judged by different TV celebrities every week.

Data 2:

Super Chef Competition

The format of the competition will be the same as the Top Chef Challenge apart from both you are professionals. The other difference is that the judges (who will be students) will be judging your food for how healthy it is as well as the taste.

內容重點:

  • It’s like Top Chef Challenge
  • Professional chefs have to cook with given ingredients (not “novices”)
  • will be judged by students (not “TV celebrities”)

judged on taste and healthiness

陷阱 7:資料運用

錄音和Data File對同一件事都有描述,要選擇較詳細的描述

錄音: She became ill after eating a smoked salmon sandwich.

Data File: I visited the Coffee Shop and had a sandwich.

陷阱 8:插圖的解說

留意插圖的解說,是否和Task相關。

Ho Chun Yu: now a presenter of his own cookery programme on Hong Kong TV.

陷阱 9:插圖的解說

留意年表的姓名,是否和Task相關。

DSE 卷三 3 個常犯錯誤:

DSE 卷三 3 個常犯錯誤

到最後同大家分享關於Paper 3學生在Listening/integrated task中既常犯錯誤,以及針對同學因應不同目標成績程度而要留意的地方。

I.沒有好好運用時間,時間分配得差

考試中的時間一分一秒都不能浪費!

無論是預備時間、聆聽規則的時間。

同學也應把握時間理解整份paper的分佈,
從而知道有重點的地方、分配好自己的時間。

例如part A 裏不順次序的聆聽 又或part B唔同tasks的字數分配 

II.回答part A 時沒有更改vocabulary或phrases的詞性

好多時候(尤其part A後段),聆聽所播放的字並不是答案。

考生需要因應答案的前文後語去更改詞性 令到答案通順和合理

III.過份著重Content

在做tasks 時,唔少同學十分執著搵齊points。

當然最ideal就係搵曬所有points,但是同學要明白唔係個個同學都有能力搵齊所有points,。

除了Contents, Language, Organisation同Tone 都是計分的,與其浪費時間不斷找points,不如把握時間令自己的文章更完美,在其他地方取分!!!

Aim Level 3-4既同學

不要花時間雕琢文句,盡量善用時間搵齊points 就要開始寫 文章也不應太長。

因為如果你英文底子不好的話 寫多只會錯多 令你更暴露自己的弱點。開始前應先highlight問題重點。

Aim Level 5或以上的既同學

Part A應該十拿九穩,integrated task 要知道language organisation 和 tone 都要做好,

例如和朋友的對話要friend, 就可用大量 You 、問大量問題、用短語去展現更好的語境意識:)
