2023 DSE English Paper 2 

2023 DSE 如期開考,打頭陣的正式英文科。

下文整合了是次考試的試題,希望能提供即時資訊予現屆及未來考生。

*題目或經修改,並非100%與正式試題相同,以下內容只作教育及參考用途。

Spencer Sir 總評

英文作文科,分為必答部份短文寫作及長文寫作,長文寫作可以從不同題目中揀選一題作答。今年必答題的部份比較困難,題目創新,與以往不同,相反長文寫作只要同學有準備,並熟讀題目,理應不難作答。

 

「單數年」的文憑試英文科出題會比較難,考生如熟讀Past Paper應該都了解這個傾向,特別在Part A必答寫作部分出題比較難,而且環保的主題出題方式新穎,第一次出申請表,為了考核同學對於對象及身份的認識。

 

而今次出卷的主題是環保,亦是過去超過10年文憑試題目當中,非常冷門的主題。以往的必答寫作都是以年青人及學校為主,考核重點是有沒有留意時事新聞,例如新年年宵,或者社交平台網紅舉辦的活動,出題方向曾不只局限於學校,還有學生的課外活動或者以時事為主

 

至於長文寫作部份,一如既往都是考核學生對於年青人、科技及潮流文化的了解。如果想取得高分,必須要有深度的分析,例如年青人現在工作不只是為了金錢,是為了內在動力 (intrinsic motivation -心理學的著名的概念),又或者可以多談及因為新冠肺炎疫情而出現大辭職潮/ You only live once (YOLO)

 

Spencer老師建議考生應該多留意外國雜誌,了解外國傾向,作為同學作文時的例子,並非只靠貼題,而是要貼答案,這些將成為考生能否取高分的秘密武器 (即是Secret Examples),而這些新聞及重點將會是未來出題的方向,例如英國、美國和新加坡最近流行的議題及時事,亦正正成為今年出題的核心關鍵。

Part A (必答部分)

Question 1 (200 words)

You are an employee for Nature Smart, a company selling eco-friendly goods.

Your team wants to bid for a pop-up space in a shopping mall for 5 months for the purpose of promotion.

Complete the form –

Company Profile (introduction) :

Bestseller (outline a product that your consumers love) :

Promotional Events (describe a marketing event that will be held in store to bring customers) :

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

今年題目偏門,明顯想考核同學對公司及Workplace的了解,與過往大多考核學校的主題不同。同學仔要對公司的方針,例如: Vision (公司願景) / ESG / 公司不同部門 (PR Department/Marketing Department) 有一定認識。

 

而且對例子及內容要求亦比以往的要求更高,例如你可以舉例以打卡方式 (hashtag challenge)進行推廣,產品可以是Reusable Water Bottle (high-quality, BPA-free materials and designed to be durable, leak-proof),沒有標準答案,但需要學生的創意,如果只死背深字深句只會得到中品的分數。

 

至於活動方面,同學可以寫product demonstrations, workshops, and talks by experts

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

公司介紹:簡要介紹 Planet Smart,包括其使命、價值觀和產品。

暢銷產品:描述 Planet Smart 的暢銷產品,包括其獨特的賣點以及它如何與公司促進生態友好的使命保持一致。

店內活動:提供 Planet Smart 計劃在店內舉辦的任何活動或活動的詳細信息,以促進生態友好。

聯繫信息:要求提供申請人的聯繫信息,包括姓名、電話號碼、電子郵件地址以及指向其網站或社交媒體平台的任何相關鏈接。

參考答案 2

Part B (Questions 2-9, 400 words,只需作答一題)

Question 2 (Sports)

Although tai chi is widely practiced in Hong Kong, it is not as recognized in other regions around the globe. Write an article for a travel magazine to introduce its benefits to tourists.

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

這條題目簡單,但需要舉大量例子,同學應該用人名及專有名詞 (例如不同的明星及網紅都有耍太極的習慣,包括汪明荃,Coffee Lam/ Emi Wong)

 

同時,小心切入點,題目是寫給遊客,由於題目是寫給國際雜誌,所以當提及與其他國家現時的情況,例如外國流行瑜伽及冥想,其實太極就好像西方流行的瑜伽及冥想,最後應該邀請他們一起參與太極,如果只是背好處及壞處,而不是推廣給遊客,只會變成一篇普通的論文,很難成為上品作文。

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

  • 簡介:簡要介紹太極拳及其在香港及其他國家的流行情況。
  • 健康益處:討論練習太極拳的各種健康益處,包括改善平衡、減輕壓力和增強心血管健康。
  • 文化意義:解釋太極拳的文化意義及其在中醫中的作用。
  • 旅遊吸引力:突出練習太極拳如何為訪港遊客提供獨特而真實的體驗。
  • 結語:總結太極拳的好處,鼓勵讀者下次來港時嘗試一下。

參考答案

Tai Chi: An Ancient Art with Modern Benefits

Hong Kong is a vibrant and bustling city that offers visitors an endless array of sights, sounds, and experiences. From towering skyscrapers to bustling night markets, Hong Kong is a place that stimulates the senses and energizes the spirit. Amidst this vibrant landscape, one activity stands out as a peaceful haven of calm and tranquillity: Tai Chi.

While Tai Chi is a popular activity in Hong Kong, it is less well-known in some parts of the world. However, as more and more people seek ways to reduce stress, improve health, and find inner peace, Tai Chi is gaining recognition as a powerful tool for personal transformation.

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art that is based on the principles of balance, flow, and harmony. Through a series of graceful, fluid movements, Tai Chi practitioners cultivate mindfulness, focus, and awareness. The slow, deliberate pace of Tai Chi allows individuals to connect with their bodies and minds in a deep and meaningful way, promoting a sense of calm and clarity.

In addition to its mental and emotional benefits, Tai Chi has been shown to have numerous physical benefits as well. Regular practice of Tai Chi has been linked to reduced blood pressure, improved balance, increased flexibility, and improved overall fitness. In fact, Tai Chi has been called “the ultimate workout for body and mind.”

For tourists visiting Hong Kong, Tai Chi is an excellent way to experience the city’s unique culture and traditions while also improving their own health and well-being. There are numerous places throughout the city where visitors can join Tai Chi classes or participate in outdoor Tai Chi sessions. From parks and public squares to temples and cultural centres, Hong Kong offers a wealth of opportunities for Tai Chi enthusiasts of all levels.

So if you’re planning a trip to Hong Kong, be sure to add Tai Chi to your itinerary. Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or a newcomer to this ancient art, Tai Chi is a wonderful way to connect with the beauty and serenity of this remarkable city while also improving your own health and well-being.

Question 3 (Popular culture)

Compose an article for your school magazine about the Anime Expo, which is the largest exhibition of anime, manga, and video games in Hong Kong. The event recently took place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre over the weekend, and as a school reporter, you had the opportunity to attend and conduct interviews with various individuals who were dressed up in cosplay.

(考卷入面有張動漫相)

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

題目容易發揮,而困難的地方是沒有特定指明回答要求。部份同學可能不清晰題目要求,容易離題。同學可以分析動漫節興起的原因及影響,可以多記述動漫展的經過,可以善用對話及比較,又或者以一個記敘文方式描寫,例如用個案分析,有同學為了參加動漫展而向學校請假,甚至通宵排隊。

 

如果同學想取得高分,可以考慮提及因為社交平台興起,令到同學對動漫展更有興趣,例如因為社交平台的羊群心理 (Herd Instinct)。

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

  • 活動報導:描述 Anime Expo 的各種活動和展覽,重點是角色扮演和採訪與會者。
  • 採訪要點:提供對角色扮演者的採訪要點,包括他們喜歡角色扮演的原因以及他們最喜歡扮演的角色。
  • 對粉絲的影響:討論 Anime Expo 對動漫、漫畫和電子遊戲粉絲的影響,以及它如何培養社區意識。
  • 結論:總結 Anime Expo 的興奮和能量,鼓勵讀者將來參加。

參考答案

The Anime Expo, an exhibition of anime, manga, and video games, was recently held at the esteemed Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event, undoubtedly Hong Kong’s largest and most anticipated celebration of anime and its related culture, drew a diverse and enthusiastic crowd from across the region.

As a school reporter, I had the privilege of attending the event and bearing witness to its resounding success. The convention hall was teeming with devoted fans, many of whom had travelled great distances to take part in the festivities. The atmosphere was positively electric, with an infectious buzz of excitement and anticipation permeating throughout the convention hall.

One of the most striking aspects of the Anime Expo was the elaborate costumes worn by many of its attendees, also known as “cosplay”. These fans spared no effort in crafting and donning costumes inspired by their favourite anime and manga characters, and the results were truly stunning. As I walked the convention hall, I had the opportunity to speak with a few of these dedicated cosplayers.

One cosplayer, dressed as the iconic character Goku from the popular anime series “Dragon Ball Z”, spoke of his love for the character and his admiration for the series. Another cosplayer, dressed as the fierce and powerful Sailor Moon, explained how her love for the character had inspired her to create her own costume and attend the expo. The passion and dedication displayed by these cosplayers were truly inspiring, and it was evident that the convention provided a welcoming and supportive community for fans to express their love for anime and its related culture.

Beyond the cosplay, the Anime Expo featured a plethora of events and activities for attendees to enjoy, including gaming competitions, workshops, and guest appearances from prominent figures in the anime and manga industries. For those seeking to indulge their love for anime and immerse themselves in its vibrant culture, the Anime Expo was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

In conclusion, the Anime Expo was an unparalleled celebration of anime, manga, and video games that brought together fans from across the region to share their passion and immerse themselves in the rich and diverse culture of the genre. As a school reporter, I was privileged to attend this event and witness firsthand the dedication and enthusiasm of its attendees. For anyone with an interest in anime or manga, I would highly recommend attending the Anime Expo, as it is an experience that will leave a lasting impression and inspire a newfound appreciation for the art form.

Question 4 (Debating)

At a debate workshop, the following topic was discussed:

 

What is your opinion on the impact of employers utilizing cameras and computer software to monitor their employees’ activities in the workplace on their productivity and job satisfaction?

 

Compose an essay that presents the advantages and disadvantages of implementing employee monitoring in the workplace.

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

與Part A一樣考核Workplace,除了一般的論點 (privacy/freedom/increase productivity)之外,能否取得高分,關鍵在於同學對於公司運作,明白在職場最重要的是互相尊重,每一位員工並不是齒輪,他們都有自己的夢想及人生目標。而且一間好公司,是希望令到每一位員工愛公司。如果寫試題的時候,同學只靠背誦大量句式及詞彙,並不明白上班背後的真正意義,比較難取得高分 (purpose at work) 。

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

  • 引言:簡要介紹工作人員監控攝像鏡頭的選題和文章的目的。
  • 優點:討論安裝攝像鏡頭以監控員工的各種好處,包括提高生產率、提高安全性和減少盜竊。
  • 缺點:概述員工監控攝像鏡頭的潛在負面影響,例如減少隱私、降低工作滿意度和增加壓力。
  • 生產力和工作滿意度:討論員工監控攝像鏡頭的使用如何影響生產力和工作滿意度,並舉例說明公司如何減輕這些負面影響。
  • 結論:總結員工監控攝像鏡頭的利弊,鼓勵公司在實施此類措施前仔細考慮對員工的影響。

參考答案

In the ever-evolving landscape of the modern workplace, the practice of employee monitoring through the use of cameras and computer software has become increasingly prevalent. This practice has sparked debates regarding the impact it has on productivity and job satisfaction. In this essay, I shall discuss the potential benefits and drawbacks of this controversial practice.

One of the most significant benefits of employee monitoring is the increased level of productivity it can bring to the workplace. With the ability to track and analyze employee activities, employers can identify areas of inefficiency, minimize time wastage, and optimize
workflow. Additionally, the monitoring process can encourage employees to stay focused and on task, reducing the likelihood of distractions and procrastination, and ultimately leading to increased productivity and profitability.

However, it is essential to acknowledge that there are potential drawbacks to the practice of employee monitoring. One of the most significant concerns is the impact it can have on employee morale and job satisfaction. Monitoring employees can create an atmosphere of distrust, leading to a decline in employee motivation and job satisfaction. Moreover, constant monitoring can result in increased stress levels, leading to a decline in mental and physical health, which could further affect employee performance.

Furthermore, employee monitoring raises serious concerns regarding employee privacy. Employees may feel uncomfortable with the idea that their every move is being tracked and recorded, leading to a violation of their personal space and autonomy. The potential for misuse and abuse of such monitoring tools, including unauthorized access to personal data, also raises concerns about the ethical implications of this practice.
In conclusion, while employee monitoring may have some potential benefits, it is essential to weigh them against the potential drawbacks.

Ultimately, the impact of monitoring employees on productivity and job satisfaction will depend on the specific context in which it is implemented. Employers must consider the trade-offs between monitoring and privacy concerns, employee morale, and job satisfaction, and should strive to find a balance that best meets the needs of both the business and the employees.

Question 5 (Short stories)

Fairy tales and fables provide us with valuable lessons on various topics such as finding love, navigating family conflicts, overcoming challenges posed by those who are wealthy and influential, and achieving a happy ending.

 

Compose an essay where you elaborate on the valuable life lessons you have learned through reading fairy tales and fables.

就DSE而言,不建議一般考生嘗試short stories的題目。

Question 6 (Drama)

During your drama class, you and your peers were tasked with performing a 10-minute comedy sketch on the spot, without the aid of a script or any prior preparation. This was your first experience with improvisational acting.

 

At the end of the day, you write in your diary about this experience.

就DSE而言,不建議一般考生嘗試Drama的題目。

Question 7 (Social issues)

According to a survey, a significant proportion of individuals in their 60s residing in Hong Kong desire the opportunity to continue working after reaching the retirement age of 65. In contrast, an increasing number of young people are aspiring to retire in their 30s or 40s.

 

Compose an article for a local newspaper discussing the differences between these views towards retirement.

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

這條題目最貼近過往歷屆主題,而且同學應該最熟悉,應該會是今年其中一條最多同學作答的題目,但是能取高分的關鍵,在於同學有沒有世界觀,因為大多同學都能夠想到現時年青人更需求彈性工作,亦應該能舉出基本例子,但若同學更能提及例如因為社交平台興起,出現抖音經濟 (Tiktok Economy),令到年輕一代有機會獲得巨大財富,成為 FIRE(近年美國的很多年輕人均朝著Fire 族的步伐,FIRE 的全稱是(Financial Independence, Retire Early,財務自主、提早退休))

 

例如一位原本在大公司打工的年輕人,因為在抖音開設了分享Excel的資訊,其後開辦課程,每個月賺取大量收入,而成為了「Ms Excel」。

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

簡介:簡要介紹上一代繼續工作、年輕職工提前退休的現象。

經濟因素:討論可能影響這種現象的經濟因素,例如不斷變化的退休政策和經濟不穩定。

社會因素:解釋可能導致這種現象的社會因素,例如保持活躍和參與的願望,以及工作性質的變化。

影響:討論這一趨勢對勞動力的影響,包括潛在的挑戰和機遇。

結論:總結退休現象背後的原因,鼓勵讀者考慮自己的退休計劃。

參考答案

In an intriguing turn of events, a recent survey conducted in the bustling metropolis of Hong Kong has uncovered a striking disparity in the retirement aspirations of the city’s populace. While a significant proportion of senior citizens in their sixties seek the option to continue working beyond the conventional retirement age of 65, a growing number of younger individuals are fervently pursuing the dream of early retirement, with their sights set on hanging up their boots in their thirties or forties.

According to the survey, the desire to remain employed well into one’s golden years is predominant amongst the older generation of Hong Kong. Many cite reasons such as financial security, social interaction, and the sense of purpose that comes with meaningful employment. Furthermore, with the city’s rapidly ageing population and shrinking workforce, many older adults feel a sense of responsibility towards society and wish to contribute to the economy for as long as they are able.

On the other hand, a noticeable trend of youthful enthusiasm towards early retirement has also emerged in recent years. Fuelled by the rise of the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement, a growing number of young people are prioritising financial independence and frugal living to retire from the traditional workforce decades before the standard retirement age. The allure of pursuing passions, travelling the world, and dedicating time to personal pursuits has propelled this movement into the mainstream.

The contrasting views towards retirement held by these two demographic groups have sparked a spirited debate in Hong Kong’s social and economic circles. Some argue that allowing older adults to work past retirement age would ease the city’s labour shortage and bolster economic growth. Others contend that early retirement may alleviate pressure on the city’s housing market and encourage greater work-life balance for young people.

Regardless of the stance taken, it is clear that retirement aspirations in Hong Kong are undergoing a significant shift, with profound implications for the city’s economy and social fabric. Whether it be the desire to remain engaged in the workforce or retire early and enjoy the fruits of financial independence, Hong Kong’s diverse population is showing that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to retirement.

Question 8 (Poems and Songs)

When a song composed by software utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) was awarded the first prize in a song-writing competition, contestants expressed their dissatisfaction.

 

Compose a letter to the editor expressing your thoughts on whether computer-generated songs should be permitted to participate in competitions.

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

人工智能是大熱方向,考評局以往通常會傾向將大熱題目,以較刁鑽的方式出題,若同學不太熟悉音樂及歌曲的話,會較難發揮,亦不能將近期大熱的Chat GPT的簡介及歷史背誦下來,這樣可能會因為沒有扣題而變成離題,考生需要注意。

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

  • 簡單介紹一下AI生成音樂的話題和寫信的目的。
  • 優點:討論使用 AI 為比賽製作音樂的潛在好處,例如提高效率、降低成本和增強創造力。
  • 缺點:概述使用 AI 生成音樂的潛在缺點,例如減少人類參與和潛在的道德問題。
  • 人類與人工智能:比較和對比人類和人工智能生成音樂的優缺點,並討論它們如何相互補充。
  • 結論:總結 AI 生成音樂的潛力,鼓勵讀者考慮技術在音樂行業中的作用。

參考答案

Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my thoughts on the controversy surrounding the use of artificial intelligence (AI) software in songwriting competitions. The recent announcement of a song created by an AI system winning first prize has led to complaints from some contestants. As a secondary school student, I have been following this debate and would like to share my opinion.

On one hand, it is understandable that some people might be upset about the use of AI-generated music in competitions that are traditionally reserved for human composers. These contests are meant to showcase the creativity and talent of musicians, and some may argue that allowing computer-generated music to compete goes against the spirit of the competition.

However, I believe that technology has always played a significant role in the creative arts, and it would be wrong to exclude AI-generated music from such competitions. AI has the ability to produce unique and innovative compositions that would not be possible through traditional methods. In this sense, AI can be seen as an exciting new tool that can expand the boundaries of what we consider to be music.

Moreover, the use of AI in music creation can have benefits beyond just competition. It can be used to inspire and influence human composers, or even to help people who may not have the resources or skills to create music on their own. By embracing this new technology, we can create new opportunities for musical expression and push the boundaries of what is possible.

Another argument in favour of allowing computer-generated songs in competitions is that the AI system is only a tool, and the ultimate creative decisions are still made by human programmers. In other words, the AI system is simply a tool that can be used to augment the abilities of human composers.

In conclusion, while I understand why some people may be hesitant to allow computer-generated songs to compete in traditional songwriting competitions, I believe that we should embrace new technology and its potential to create something truly unique and innovative. I think that AI-generated music should be allowed to compete alongside human-composed music in such contests and that we should be open to new and exciting developments in the world of music creation.

Yours faithfully,
Chris Wong

Question 9 (Workplace Communication)

As an employee of Restaurant Business magazine, you conducted an interview with a restaurant owner regarding their experiences operating a business during the pandemic.

 

Based on the insights gained from the interview, write a feature article for the magazine.

Spencer Sir 獨家點評

需要多討論疫情對企業的影響,要比較熟悉疫情,例如社交距離措施,疫情對市民及社會的影響 (Staycation/Virtualization/Work from Home),如果同學沒有深度的例子及論點,則很難成為上品的作文。

 

 

可以參考的寫作方向:

 

  • 簡介:簡要介紹疫情對餐飲業的影響及文章的目的。
  • 訪談要點:提供與餐廳老闆訪談的要點,包括他如何適應大流行病、他們面臨的挑戰及他們如何保持客戶忠誠度。
  • 行業影響:討論大流行對整個餐飲業的影響,包括消費者行為的變化和新技術的採用。
  • 未來展望:概述餐飲業的未來前景,以及它可能如何繼續發展以應對這一流行病。

參考答案

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc on the restaurant industry, many businesses have been forced to close their doors permanently. However, some restaurants have been able to adapt and overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic. In a recent interview with a restaurant owner, we gained insight into how one business has managed to thrive during this difficult time.

The owner of this restaurant, who wishes to remain anonymous, explained that the key to their success has been their ability to pivot their business model. Before the pandemic, their restaurant primarily focused on in-person dining experiences. However, with restrictions on indoor dining, they quickly realized that they needed to adapt to survive.

The owner made the decision to focus on takeout and delivery orders. They invested in new technology and software to make the ordering process more streamlined and efficient. They also offered promotions and discounts to incentivize customers to order takeout.

Another key factor in the restaurant’s success has been its commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for customers. The owner explained that they have implemented strict cleaning protocols and have invested in personal protective equipment for their staff. They have also made changes to the restaurant layout to ensure social distancing between customers.

Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the restaurant has been able to maintain a loyal customer base. The owner attributes this to their dedication to providing quality food and exceptional customer service. They have also made a point to communicate with customers regularly through social media and email newsletters.

The owner acknowledges that running a restaurant during the pandemic has been a difficult and stressful experience. However, they remain optimistic about the future. They plan to continue offering takeout and delivery options even after restrictions on indoor dining are lifted. They also hope to eventually expand their business to include catering services.

The restaurant owner’s experience provides valuable insights into how businesses can adapt and thrive during these uncertain times. By being open to change and prioritizing safety and customer service, even in the face of adversity, restaurants can emerge stronger than ever before.

In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for the restaurant industry. However, with dedication and resilience, businesses can adapt and overcome these challenges. We applaud the restaurant owner interviewed for their innovative approach to running a successful business during these difficult times. Their experience serves as an inspiration to us all.
