【DSE Paper 2】Writing 作文 實用生字 + 句式技巧

中文作文向來被稱為「死亡之卷」,英文 Writing 亦都不惶多讓。使用嘅句式同生字唔夠多元,係攞唔到高分嘅其中一個原因。今次就分享下不同嘅實用生字選擇,同埋 Writing 5**狀元會用嘅句式喇。 Writing 實用生字 講野 你只係寫said❓ 行路 你只係寫walk❓ 笑 你只係寫laugh❓ 你其實可以形容得更全面,只要轉一轉動詞就可以架喇 講野 shout 呼喊 whisper 低聲說 scream 尖叫 行路 stroll / wander 漫步 pad 放輕腳步走 lumber 笨重地移動 笑 smile 微笑 giggle 傻笑 guffaw 狂笑 起動詞到做改變,就可以將本身好general嘅動作變得更具體且更有畫面感 Writing 5**必學句式 你會唔會係咁背生字,背名人語句,呢啲嘢對學英文絕對無錯,但未必幫到你升grade。好多高分嘅同學都會用唔同嘅句式令文章更加豐富。 Only through… (只有通過) 實戰例句: Only through international cooperation can we stem the tide of cross-border crimes, like prostitution, drug trafficking and terrorist activities. 不過要小心呢句係倒裝句,正常係we can stem ,但要倒裝所以要將we 同can對調😮 However + formidable + S + is, + SVO (無論怎樣艱巨…也會) 實戰例句: However formidable the HKDSE is, every sixth-former should work strenuously. 您可能會問however 唔係解‘不過’咩,其實‘不過’只係佢其中一個用法 同樣要小心呢句都係倒裝句,正常係the HKDSE is formidable  但要倒裝所以要將 formidable調去前面 **倒裝句時嘅一個原則:動詞係需要調位去主語前面‼️‼️。 名詞化 (normalization) Sbdy + hold the belief that + SVO (有…的信念) Example: Many sixth-formers hold the belief that they can enhance their English results by attending

【DSE Paper 3】 Listening memo + Sample

英文 DSE listening 在唔同part時都有唔同技巧。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,Part B 要審題同管理時間等等。今日就分享下 Listening 中要注意嘅備忘錄加sample。 Listening Part A 您會唔會搵到好多points但listening 失哂分⁉️ Listening 法則🧐 基本上,聆聽嘅流程都係咁,先有一個提示字眼(cue words)。佢會現實跟著有答案浮現‼️ 然後有可能會重複答案或者俾多啲解釋/例子,所以認到邊個係提示字眼 (cue words) 就同命中率直接掛勾。咁咩係提示字眼 (cue words)呢? 同題目一模一樣或意思相近嘅字 Connectives (例如:Firstly, At first ) 對話問題嘅答案 俾指示嘅句子 例如:You should … Don’t forget to … 俾緊建議 例如:I suggest / propose that you (should) … 分裂句 例如:What / All you have to do is … Listening Data File 一定要留意Situation😎 你嘅名 工作職位、職銜同公司名 有關人士 2018 DSE Paper 3 Situation You are Sammy Tsang (名).

【DSE 英文】 考試 17個實用 生字

如果同學想在 DSE 英文 考試 奪得高分,同學必須要知道 DSE 英文 考試 的常用及實用詞彙,才可以好好準備。 值得稱讚的 praiseworthy (adj.) 呢個字應該好易解啦!😎 (同之後介紹嘅字一樣)“praise”解稱讚“worthy”解值得 praise➕worthy 就係…… ‘值得稱讚’咯😂 例如: The players of the Chinese women’s volleyball team were praiseworthy for their poise against the mighty USA team. commendable (adj.) 呢個字同樣都好易理解!😎“commend”解稱讚 “-able”尾通常係 (adj.) 咁➕埋係🤔 ‘值得稱讚’咯🤣 例如: Chancellor Angela Merkel is commendable as she has managed to bring economic prosperity to the Germans. laudable (adj.) 最後呢個字可能有少少陌生😮,但laud都係解讚揚,夾埋“-able”通常會變(adj.)😎 不過⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️⚠️ 佢仲有更深層次嘅意思🤩 就係*行為或習慣*值得稱讚,*就算*只係成功好少🤩 例如: Saving dozens of workers trapped in the mine, the rescue workers are laudable. 解釋 illustrate (v.) 平時睇書都會見到插畫嗰爛😉 但原來illustrate係可以解‘解釋’架😮 (之後嗰啲更加難以想像😉😉) 例如: The incompetence of the government in extirpating pollution illustrates its chilling disregard for the alarming problem. demonstrate (v.)

【DSE Paper 2】 Grammar + 句式 小技巧

中文作文向來被稱為「死亡之卷」,英文 Writing 亦都不惶多讓,學生捉唔到英文語法嘅規律,結果俾人扣曬啲 grammar 分。加上使用嘅句式唔夠多元,所以攞唔到高分。今次就分享下Grammar不同嘅用法同常犯錯誤,同埋 Writing 5**狀元會用嘅句式喇。 Grammar 常犯錯誤 there have vs there be 好多香港人都會下意識咁將中文直譯成英文,當中最有標誌性嘅莫過於「呢度有」-> “there have” 。正確嘅用法應該係 “there is/are” ,例如: There are 3 pairs of shoes in the locker. everyday vs every day 呢兩個字看似一樣,但係佢地嘅用法實際上係有少少分別嘅;”everyday” 係一個adjective,用嚟形容一啲每日都會發生嘅事, 例如: Exercise should be a part of your everyday life. (everyday = daily) 而 “every day” 就係一個 adverb ,every 反可以跟 “time”, “minute” 等,只係加上 “day” 後令同學更混淆。例如: I exercise every day. 如果喺要用 “everyday” 嘅地方用錯 “every day” ,或者相反,就會錯 grammar 啦,同學要小心留意。 *上堂會教你獨家口訣,到時上堂教你😊 lack(n) of vs lack(v) 另一個最常犯嘅 grammar 錯誤就係 “lack”了。要寫「缺乏」嘅時候,你係咪就咁寫 “lack” 就算數?冇錯,當呢個字係動詞用嘅時候就係啱嘅。但若果係當名詞用,後面必須要加上 “of sth” (某事物的短缺),例如: She lacks confidence. The lack of money has become a bigger problem than expected. Passive Voice 用法 Passive voice 裡的動詞必要轉換 若果同學用 passive voice 嘅時候漏咗冇轉動詞嘅時態,就會有 grammar 錯誤,例如: The floor is mop by me. (x) 祇是: The floor is mopped

【DSE Paper 4】 Speaking 5** 4大實用技巧

好多學生會覺得Speaking 係最唔需要技巧嘅,只依靠自己到時嘅臨場發揮。今日就同大家分享吓四大幫你喺 Speaking 攞5**嘅技巧。 一邊聽人地發言一邊做筆記 Speaking 雖然只有短短十幾分鐘,但需要學生聚精會神,全程集中嚟應對。除咗自己發言時要講得好,組員發言亦要留意,以求成組表現互動、尊重,獲得加分機會。 免費試堂 減少講 “I agree with you” 與其一味講 “agree” ,缺乏後續嘅延伸,不如講 “That was a very convincing reason you just mentioned. By the way” ,咁樣就可以不失同意別人觀點嘅同時,亦銜接到自己嘅內容。 5** 答案: Exactly I’m with you Points taken  (比較自然) 免費試堂 回應別人觀點,以引領對話方向 喺一組人當中,有一兩個人甚少參與到討論當中係十分常見嘅情況。呢種情況下最好係用返佢地早前提及過嘅觀點嚟帶領佢地再參與到討論中,因為 Speaking 係唔可以直接叫某一同學發言的。 免費試堂 減少講 “I think”, “In my opinion” “I think…”, “In my opinion…” 係咪覺得呢兩句好熟悉?你又會唔會只係用呢兩句嚟表達自己意見?其實唔使咁單調,毫無變化咁表達意見嘅,同學可以試吓用反問句,一開頭就吸引聽眾注意力。以下有三個好好用嘅例句俾同學參考吓。 Why not + do…? Why not introduce more people in Hong Kong to bizarre food? 為何不讓更多香港人認識到世界各地的怪奇食物呢? Isn’t it more intriguing that…? Isn’t it more intriguing that some celebrities don’t want to be that famous? 不覺得有些名人不想出名這件事很有趣嗎? How about do+ing? How about going to a party? 不如去這個派對? 免費試堂 如果大家有什麼英文問題,如Spencer Lam, 好唔好咁樣學英文呀? 或者IELTS考試,成人英文/商業英文的知識及英文資源,歡迎你可以隨時再跟我多交流一下,可以Follow 「Spencer Lam English Team」 Facebook page同IG得到更多英文資訊,亦都可以上 https://spencerlam.hk/ 了解更多!

【 DSE 英文 】 4卷 常犯錯誤 + 溫習 技巧

過左一個 DSE,下一個 DSE 又緊住黎喇。唔知大家又有冇心機同動力去溫呢? 希望呢個post可以幫到你哋搵番失去左嘅動力。再加上, DSE 英文 嘅考試技巧,幫你踏上英文奪星之路。 提升溫習動力嘅方法 重覆問自己溫書嘅初衷 首先要為自己訂立一個你想達到嘅目標,例如因為某啲原因我好想做眼科醫師,咁你嘅初衷就會係入讀眼科學科,你就不停提醒自己,為左入讀到眼科,就要比心機繼續捱落去,從而提升溫習動力。尤其是英文科有加乘嘅科目同大學。 – DSE 英文 / 核心科目有加乘的大學 香港大學、香港中文大學和香港理工大學對於拎5或以上分數的核心科目(如英文)係有加乘架,拎5等於5.5分、5*等於7分及5**等於8.5分。 – 按照 DSE 計法 的大學 除了上述的3間大學有加乘外,其他大學對核心科目都沒有加乘。拎5等於5分,5*等於6分及5**等於7分。 認清你內心的恐懼 你之所以唔想溫,正正係因為你對內心產生恐懼。例如你一見到英文詞彙表就會好怕,然後就唔再掂,久而久之就會對詞彙產生恐懼,表現會更差。解決方法就係慢慢打破恐懼,試下溫5分鐘英文,之後每日都加1分鐘溫習時間,久而久之就會打破恐懼。 改變身邊的人和環境 你身邊嘅人同環境都會影響你溫書心態,因為身邊的人嘅價值觀、思想、行為同態度都會直接影響你,例如你身邊嘅朋友都好懶散,你都會被佢地影響到。 成功係正面嘅動力 有研究指出,只要曾經考得好好,令自信心大左,之後繼續考得好嘅動力就會大左。例如我一直考全級頭10名的,你就不會想掉出頭10,因此你嘅動力會大增。就算冇考得好好過,都可以集中係自己強嘅一科,慢慢從成功換取動力。 DSE 通用溫習技巧 準備自製的學習小抄本 同學可以在溫書時,將溫到的重點寫在筆記本上,把所有重點濃縮起來,到了考試當天可以拿來速看,加深學習記憶。 開設IG studygram 開一個新的溫習IG 帳號,把每天的溫習進度放上IG,這有助監察自己的學習進度,提升學習效率。 DSE Reading Reading 考試技巧 喺做 Reading 卷 嘅時候有冇出現睇唔明嘅情況呢?為左令大家解決睇唔明嘅情況,教大家3個技巧去破解長句子同難字。 從前文後理推敲詞彙的性質 如果你喺文章入面遇到唔識嘅字,可以從前句推敲出來。例如唔識averse 呢個字,但前句是說好的東西,突然出現了一個But,咁我就好肯定佢係負面嘅詞語。 拆字大法 有時候,一啲深嘅詞彙其實你可以估到意思嘅,例如underestimate。將其拆開,就會變做under + estimate。Estimate大家都知意思係估計,under就係低,咁合埋就係低估計,推敲番就知係解低估啦。 拆句子大法 拆句前,首先要留意句子有冇Relative clause/ and/ with。同常呢啲都會連接兩句句子,所以將佢地拆開就會容易睇得番句子想表達甚麼。 DSE Writing 如果想在寫作中給人留下英文不錯的好印象,那麼由 Writing 最基本的Grammar開始說起,然後再分享一些寫作的技巧: Writing Grammar 小技巧 兩個only的 倒裝句 用法 Only after 倒裝前:She realized she had done it wrong after she had stolen the wine. 倒裝後:Only after she had stolen the wine did he realize she had done it wrong. Only when 倒裝前:I felt excited when I had heard the good news. 倒裝後:Only when I had heard the good news did I feel excited. **要注意的是,倒裝前的前半句(after/when前)在倒裝後會變成did + subject
