英文卷三 Part A Note-taking skill
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
- CE PP
- DSE PP

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
要記住 Vocab 是不嫌多的
例如x代表負面的，如x do代表I don’t want to do
3. 善用Grammar 知識
如果同學平時在 Listening 都表現得不錯，但總是難有些突破
最常見的低級錯誤有 Tense、Plural/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

You are Sammy Tsang （名）. You work for a board game company called Griffin Workshop（公司名） in Hong Kong. It is a small company set up by some friends. It is now working on its latest board game Escape to Hong Kong Island. Your boss, Angel Fu（有關人士/Boss）, has asked you to do some tasks.

2016 DSE Paper 3 Part B2 (DF 5) Task 10 (節錄)
Minutes from museum staff meeting
…yesterday during the public holiday, 13 visitors were caught smoking in the toilets at different times.
Ms Gau asked whether the evacuation of the building yesterday afternoon was connected in any way to this.
Mr Howard concurred(意見一致) (最後決定) that this certainly had been the cause of the fire alarm being triggered.
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.
技巧1: 分正負定方向 留意[負面字眼 及正面形容詞]
例如: problem / concern / issue
2014 DSE Data File 9📝
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.

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

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。
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
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:)
DSE Paper 3 Listening 常見問題
HKDSE English Paper 3 聆聽部分通常佔 50 – 55 分鐘，換言之考生大約有 1 小時 10 分鐘時間完成 Part B2 三個 tasks。
三個 tasks 裡必定有一個長題目，要求考生寫 200 – 220 字，所以同學可以花較多時間在這個 task。
但往年曾經把 220 字放在第一個 task (Task 8)，較短的兩篇 （約120-150字） 則放在 Task 9、Task 10，令不少同學花太多時間寫 220 字，沒時間做 120 – 150 字的 tasks 。
假設同學有 70 分鐘時間完成 Part B2，最理想是頭 30 – 35 分鐘做完兩篇短 tasks，確保自己能獲取基本的分數，然後凈低的時間（約35 – 40 分鐘） 做長 task 及 proofreading。
再次提醒同學千萬要 proofreading，尤其是在 Part B2 這麼多資料的情況下，混淆資料、抄少 / 錯 / 多 points 等問題屢見不鮮，會嚴重影響 content 及 language 分數。
Content Language Appropriacy 係咪分開評估
評卷員在評核language分的時候，其中一個很重要的準則是考生有沒有精準運用data file里相關的資訊（ data file manipulation ） ， 換言之如果你content獲取滿分，自然會帶動language也會高分！
