 $14100                                                                                                                     

Data File: “Situation”部分

秘訣

關鍵字

留意Data File開首的 “Situation”部分,考生代入的身分、職銜、所屬部門和機構,以及要舉辦的活動,往往是內容重點

You are Pat Lee.

You are an assistant to Donnie Kwok.

You work in the Campus Services Departmentat Hong Kong University.

Your club is planning to take part in a tree-planting activity.

The best project will be selected to enter the competition.

Task的指示

秘訣

關鍵字

留意每個Task的指示,可能包含內容重點

Mrs. Lee, your teacher, has asked you to write an email to invite Professor Liu for the special event at your school.

Letter和Email

秘訣

關鍵字

Letter和Email要特別注意格式。雖然Data File沒有提及,但考生必須寫地址和上下款。要從Data File的不同地方找出寄件人地址、收件人地址、收件人職銜、收件人姓名、寄件人姓名和寄件人職銜。

 

Letter of Reply (回覆信)

秘訣

關鍵字

寫Letter of Reply (回覆信)一開始就要表明代表機構寫信目的,簡介事情原委,給Editor的回信,還要清楚交代原信件的寄件者寫信日期

I am writing to apologize for the poor service you have received from our hospital recently.

I am writing on behalf of the Kowloon Exotic Pets Hospital in response to the letter written by Mr. Squeers on March 23, 2014 concerning his dissatisfaction with our hospital.

Letter of Reply (回覆信)

秘訣

關鍵字

寫Letter of Reply (回覆信),要先看原信件,找出對方的疑問、投訴或關注事項,然後再找其他資料,逐一回應對方。全文的結構應該是歸納一個疑問,然後立刻回應,然後再寫第二個疑問和回應,如此類推。閱讀Data File時要根據重覆關鍵字和文意進行分類,例如寫完投訴A,接著就要寫反駁投訴A的論點。寫完投訴B,接著就要寫反駁投訴B的論點,如此類推。

Refer to the article that was published

Answer the points raised in the article

投訴A: Your organization cares about making money.

回應A: We have an orphan programme which is free.

投訴B: When an owner no longer wants his pet and lets it go into the wild, the ecosystem is damaged.

回應B: We organize a workshop to educate people about the threat to the ecosystem if something is released into the wild.

 

Transcript of Interview (訪問稿)

秘訣

關鍵字

Transcript of Interview (訪問稿)由Interviewer (訪問者) 和被訪者的對話組成。通常會由Interviewer先發問,然後被訪者回答。閱讀時應集中留意被訪者的說話,因為取分重點大多數來自這部分。雖然Interviewer的部分可以略讀,但間中有一兩個重點來自這部分。

Interviewer: What exactly is a skyscraper?

Professor Liu: A skyscraper is a tall buildingthere is no specific height that makes a skyscraper a skyscraper – usually used for commercial and residential purposes
