【Grammar 技巧】 4種 常犯 Grammar 錯誤

相信很多同學都想學好英文,但是又不知從何入手。學好英文的第一步,是要掌握好 英文 Grammar 技巧 和 用法,但其千變萬化相信很多同學不知道從何入手。今天將帶給大家4種 Grammar 常犯錯誤 和 Grammar 技巧 。 連接詞 伏位 3個易錯的so / so that / so as to 大家都一定用過 so 黎作句 咁你地又知唔知 so/so that/so as to 有咩分別呢? 今日就教大家分清楚,之後就唔會搞錯啦 1. so用以表達因果 so通常用以表達因果,「因為…所以…」,例如I am obese so I need to eat less. 因為我過重,所以我需要吃少點 2. so that 用以表達目的 so that表達的是目的,而不是結果,通常會配以can/ could/ will/ would使用 例如I do exercise regularly so that I can keep fit. 我規律地做運動,為的是保持健美身材 3. so as to 用以表達目的,但跟動詞 so as to同樣表達目的,但與so that不同的是,它後面會跟動詞,並且要是to-infinitive 例如I do exercise regularly so as not to gain weight. 我規律地做運動,為的是不增加體重 4. Only after, Only when 用法 唔知大家喺寫倒裝句嘅時候會唔會與到啲困難呢?今日就同大家講下兩個 only 的倒裝用法 分別是 only after 和 only when   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 she 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 + verb (present tense) Conditional Sentence 伏位 Conditionals (If 句式) 係一個實用嘅句式,但同時都好易用錯 而家就俾條題目考下大家對 Conditionals 嘅認識啦 先問下大家下面邊個係啱嘅? If he was you, he would not do it. If he were you, he would not do it.   以上邊一句先係正確呢? 正確答案係B,可能有同學會唔太記得,以下同大家 If 基本分4大類型,大家一定要隨時記得不同動詞嘅型態及用法 上面問大家嘅係 “假設” 嘅類別 (發生機率: 0%) 型態係: If you did it, you would do….. 用呢個類型嗰時要注意: If I were you, / If he were you (呢個時候應該要用 were ,而唔係was 。好多同學會寫錯的,記得要小心 好多人問點解會係用過去式 (past tense)? 因為past tense 除了表示 (i) 過去動作 ,亦可以表達 (ii) unreal past tense (不真實時都可以用) Adverb 伏位 好多時,同學可能會將Adjective同Adverb混淆而用錯了 以下會指出3個最常錯的Adverbs,等大家可以係寫作嘅時候避免犯錯 1. Late 如果我想寫「我遲到」,好多人會寫I come lately,但其實正確應該是I come late late可以同時是adjective和adverb,意思是指遲,而lately作為adverb意思會變成最近 2. High 如果我想寫「我飛得很高」,好多人會寫I fly highly,但正確應該是I fly high 同樣地,high可以同時是adjective和adverb,意思指高,而highly作為adverb是指高度 3. Wide 如果我想寫「我把門開得很大的」,好多人會寫I open the door widely,但正確應該是I open the door wide wide可以是adjective和adverb,表示空間寬度,而widely作為adverb是指廣泛地 Passive Voice 伏位 Passive Voice 同 Past Tense,你地可以分得清楚嗎? 以下就會介紹吓三大 Passive Voice 嘅伏位。 主語與賓語位置交換 The technician changed the tire. -> The technician was changed by the tire. (x) 應是: The tire was changed by the technician. (v) 誤以為 adjective 是 passive voice They are experienced teachers. 他們是經驗豐富的教師。 呢度嘅 “experienced” 係形容詞,有人見到 “are experienced” ,就誤以為係passive voice,令到句子解釋出錯。 過份使用 passive voice 用到 passive voice 的確係英文能力嘅一種表現,但過份使用不但會令到文章表達出現問題,更會混淆讀者。 適當嘅使用,有助文章表達思想就足夠。(多用於report/formal writing) 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 by me. (v) Past participle 而非 simple past 同學平時接觸到嘅英文詞多數都係 “ed” 尾,可能就會俾到個錯嘅印象俾同學,以為係simple past tense,但應該係past participle (PP) 先啱 例如: The pencil was took by Peter. (x) 應是: The pencil was taken by Peter (v)   *大家要重溫少用的pp形態,例如 (seek – sought -sought / sweep – swept – swept / deal – dealt – dealt 等) 唔用得 Passive voice 嘅情況 有啲情境係唔可以亂咁加上 passive voice嘅,因為並唔係所有英文句子都由 SVO 構成,有啲唔會有 O 例如: She was gone out. (x) 應是: She went out. (v) 仲有start/finish等字都不可以用被動 (一般而言) Prepositions 錯誤 3prepositions 錯誤,等大家以後都可以分得清唔同 preposition應該運用嘅語境。 by / before 兩者都具有指定喺某一個時間點前嘅意思,例如: “You will need to get to the airport by/before 9:00 a.m.” 你需要在上午9點前到達機場。 但同 by 唔一樣,before 亦可以用作連接詞,呢個係 by 做唔到嘅,例如: It is advised that you read every single line of your contract before signing it. 在簽下合約前,建議你最好看清楚合約內容。 after / afterwards 緊接 after 之後,一定要用名詞或 gerund;若之後唔想加名詞,就可以用 afterwards,例如: He threw up after drinking heavily. 他在喝太多之後嘔了。 Don’t have a meal and do cardio immediately afterwards. 不要在吃飯之後馬上做有氧運動。 on / in 對於好多人嚟講,in 同 on 係一對好棘手嘅組合。in 嘅意思係喺某一物嘅裡面,而 on 就係解喺某一物嘅上面。 仲有另一種用法就係日期:某月某日應用 on,例如 “on July

【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 tutorial classes without working hard. 將believe (v.)轉做belief(n.)👍🏻 Sbdy + put emphasis on + n. (強調) Example: Nowadays, smartphone companies put emphasis on fancy designs rather than the durability of their products. 將emphasize (v.)轉做 emphasis(n.)❗️ With the implementation of + n. + SVO (隨著…的 實行) Example: With the implementation of the new senior secondary curriculum, girls seem to have gained an upper hand over their male counterparts in terms of university admission. 將implement (v.) 轉做implementation(n.)‼️ 分裂句 (clef sentence) 公式: It is + n. + that/who/whom/which + VO 例子: It is feudalism and Confucianism which contributed to the stagnation of China’s social and economic development. It is vocational training that can disentangle the underprivileged from the mire of impoverishment.  It is CY Leung who shoulders the responsibility for exacerbating the relationship between the executive and the legislature. 大家可以見到將普通既句子斬開佢🔪,係適當嘅地方加翻that/who/whom/which就可以 倒裝句 (Inversion) Had it not been + VO., + SVO (如果沒有…,就會…) 可以嘅話背咗佢! Had I not been deeply involved in the environmental pattern since a young age, 如果不是我從小就深入參與環境模式, I would not have known about how electrical cars eliminate nitrogen oxides and sulphur oxides car exhaust. 公式:Often s + v + o Often the people who complete degrees in these areas do not work in the fields in which they are trained 在這些領域獲得學位的人通常不在他們接受培訓的領域工作 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 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 by me. (v) Tenses 問題 以前有不少同學仔在寫作文Part A 時,因為太依賴考試技巧,往往忽略了文法,寫完之後求其proofread,沒有認真對待。明明是講過去的事 (My high school life 或 The Life 50 years ago) ,但是同學仔經常不小心,一時用present tense,一時用past tense,因此嚴重扣分。另外,能善用不同tenses同學仔亦不多(好簡單的past continuous / past perfect tense 都用得不足)。即使用了所謂的技巧,最終作文分數仍是不夠好! Past participle 而非 simple past 同學平時接觸到嘅英文詞多數都係 “ed” 尾,可能就會俾到個錯嘅印象俾同學,以為係simple past tense,但應該係past participle (PP) 先啱。例如: The pencil was took by Peter. (x) 應是: The pencil was taken by Peter (v) *大家要重溫少用的pp形態,例如 (seek – sought -sought / sweep – swept – swept / deal – dealt – dealt 等) *上堂同你分享10大伏位 唔用得 Passive voice 嘅情況 有啲情境係唔可以亂咁加上 passive voice嘅,因為並唔係所有英文句子都由 SVO 構成,有啲唔會有 O,側如: She was gone out. (x) 應是: She went out. (v) 仲有start/finish等字都不可以用被動 (一般而言) 我和XXX… 要寫包括自己在內嘅一群人時,大家又會點寫呢?例如「我和我的家人」,係 “Me and my family”,抑或 “My family and I” 先啱呢?正確答案應該係後者: “My family and I”。但相信有人都聽過第一個講法,尤其喺外國人口中。 “Me and xxx” 雖然喺文法上錯誤,但大部分人都會因為順口而講咗呢個版本,若書面寫出嚟係會扣分的。 There vs. They’re vs. Their 呢三個詞嘅讀音完全一樣,唔少人都無辦法分清楚咩時候用邊個。雖然聽起嚟一樣,但係佢地嘅意思就絕對唔一樣。 “There” 嘅意思係「那裡」, “They’re” 係 “They are” 嘅縮寫,而 “Their” 就係解「他們的」。以意思嚟記住,就唔怕會用錯啦。 It’s vs. Its 呢兩個詞語比起 “there/they’re/their” 嘅混淆程度更加高,一個唔小心就會用錯咗,而且亦都好容易會記錯。同學可以記住有單引號嘅就係縮寫, it’s -> it is。 Grammar 用法 3 大必學Phrasal Verbs ask sb out ask同out砌埋,就會變成約某人出街,例如: He asked her out last Sunday. 上個星期日他約了她出街。 come across sth come同across砌埋,意思就係發現、碰見。例如: He came across some old keychains on his desk. 他在抽屜裡發現了一些舊鑰匙圈。 put up with sth/sb 呢個phrasal verb嘅意思可以講同put或up冇任何關聯,分開寫有唔同嘅意思,但組合埋就解「忍受、容忍」。例如: I don’t know how you put up with such horrible living conditions. 真不知道你是怎麼忍受這麼惡劣的生活環境的。 gerund 定 infinitive? gerund 可以作為 subject (動名詞) I like cycling. 我喜歡踩單車這項活動。 I like to cycle. 我喜歡去踩單車。 轉做主語 (To cycle?) Cycling is my hobby. 踩單車是我的興趣。 *記得不少朋友經常寫成 “Cycle is my hobby” 介詞後應接 gerund 介詞即 “in, at, on, of, about, for” 等。例如: He is interested in joining the art club. He is thinking about doing skydiving next. 形容詞後應接to- infinitive She is talented enough to get recruited. This jewellery is too expensive to buy for a lot of people. 改善grammar兩大方法 [5**的秘密!!] Grammar – 令人又愛又恨的文法 你應該由細到大都聽很多人講文法,有人同你講,你學好,神技神技神技,你考試就可以高分,但另一方面,學校老師成日都同你講Grammar !!! Grammar!! Grammar!! 個個都想學好Grammar,唔通個個都可以學好咩? 但係,認真,文法對英文考試的影響有幾大?誠實地話比你知: 想英文考試考得好,考試技巧及文法都是同樣重要! 這雖然看似是廢話,但當我地愈來愈接近公開試或學校考試,我們愈容易忽略它的重要性。 那麼,有什麼方法可以學好Grammar?其實我建議:1. 一定要勤做proofreading,一邊做一邊提升自己對搵錯處的sensitivity (Spencer Sir以前都苦練過一排),另一方面,就睇下自己有邊一個topic 不太熟就溫返啦! 2. 有咩唔明就問清楚,唔好一知半解,特別是重大grammar topics (passive voice/ tenses/ conditionals / relative clauses) Writing 中”所以” 文法句式 “所以”係除左”因為”外最常見嘅連接詞 / 句式,除左Therefore/So…? 想唔想知點樣用更多嘅句式嚟講「所以」?以下有三個句式俾大家參考吓。 That being the case He does not have real knowledge. That being the case, he cannot make a wise decision. 他沒有真正的智慧,所以不能作出明智的決定。 Thus/Hence She always throws tantrums at people around her. Thus, he has not many friends. 她常常向身邊的人發脾氣,所以沒有多少朋。 Accordingly Costs are soaring. Accordingly, the product goes up in price. 因為成本正在上漲,所以產品價格也上升了。 *當然每個字都有不同的用法,大家要特別小心的 5** 狀元秘密 作文必用句式 …is the lesser of two evils 平時你只會講: Both presidential candidates have had a bad reputation, so I voted for the one that is

【 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 + verb (present tense)。 善用 phrasal verb 善用 phrasal verb 令句子會更自然流暢。以下篩選了3組常用的phrasal verb分享給大家。 Call off (取消) 例句:They called the show off as the heavy rain. Put away (儲蓄、存放) 例句:I put part of my salary away for purchasing a house. Try out (試用) 例句:I tried the new job out but decided it wasn’t suitable. Grammar 常犯錯誤 易錯的so / so that / so as to so用以表達因果 so通常用以表達因果,「因為…所以…」,例如I am obese so I need to eat less. 因為我過重,所以我需要吃少點。 so that 用以表達目的 so that表達的是目的,而不是結果,通常會配以can/ could/ will/ would使用。例如I do exercise regularly so that I can keep fit. 我規律地做運動,為的是保持健美身材。 so as to 用以表達目的,但跟動詞 so as to同樣表達目的,但與so that不同的是,它後面會跟動詞,並且要是to-infinitive。例如I do exercise regularly so as not to gain weight. 我規律地做運動,為的是不增加體重。 3大常錯的Adverbs Late 如果我想寫「我遲到」,好多人會寫I come lately,但其實正確應該是I come late。late可以同時是adjective和adverb,意思是指遲,而lately作為adverb意思會變成最近。 High 如果我想寫「我飛得很高」,好多人會寫I fly highly,但正確應該是I fly high。同樣地,high可以同時是adjective和adverb,意思指高,而highly作為adverb是指高度。 Wide 如果我想寫「我把門開得很大的」,好多人會寫I open the door widely,但正確應該是I open the door wide。 wide可以是adjective和adverb,表示空間寬度,而widely作為adverb是指廣泛地。 寫作5大技巧 學習組合詞組(Collocations) 同學可以改善用字配搭,例如下大雨The rain is big 可以寫成The rain is heavy;賺大錢Earn a lot of money可以寫成Earn a fortune。學習組合詞組可以昇華語感﹐有助改善港式英語,同學需要花時間去記去學習慣才會有改善。 不要不停頓地使用SVO 很多時候同學會在句子裡出現多於一組SVO句子結構,這也是港式英語常見的,如I love watching this TV show they are very good. ,這裡便出現了兩組SVO。同學可以善用句號/and/relative clause來分隔兩句,如下This TV show is so good that I have watched it every night. 善用形容詞來延長句子 同學想句子變得豐富,可以活用形容詞來修飾句子,而不是一下子加上很多組SVO在一句句子內。例如形容一個男生boy,加上形容詞後,就變成A handsome boy playing football with us. 留意Preposition 很多時候在表達時間或用一些形容詞/名詞的時候,都會跟著指定的Preposition,例如 節日會用at Easter/ at Christmas;指定日子用on 1 Jan 2021/ on Monday/ on Easter day; 時段會用in the afternoon/ in the morning;有些adj/noun會一定有指定的,如bad + at/with / good + at. 多看Newspaper Articles / Book / Blog 同學可以多閱讀文章和書本來陪養興趣,閱讀除了可以改善Reading卷的表現,也可以改善港式英文。同學可以選閱自己喜歡的書籍,由興趣著手會比較有效。 上次就講左”因為”– because / because of 等等嘅連接詞,今次就講如何活用 ‘As’ As 的4大用法 as 表示 「以…的身份、作為、當作」 As 除了用作連接詞,也可作為介詞使用,需要在as後面加上名詞來表達對象。 例句: Mary works as an IT assistant in the college. as 表示「當…時」 這裡as用作從屬連接詞,此時as的意義與when/while相近,表示兩件事同時發生。 例句:As we are playing football, it started to rain. as 表示「隨著…」 這裡as用作從屬連接詞,表示兩件事隨著時間推移而發生變化。 例句:As technology advances, cybercrimes are getting more serious. as 表示「依照、如同、像是、和…一樣」 這裡as用作從屬連接詞,此時as的意義與like相近,但不能用在有比較意味的句子。 例句:Do not ask questions, just do as your father said. DSE Listening 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。 Listening 3大考試技巧 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了。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。 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。 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。 DSE Speaking 好多同學仔可能會覺得Paper 4 比 Paper 3 更加冇得準備,只要順其自然就可以啦。但其實喺考英文 Paper 4 都有唔少句式可以準備架。 Speaking 技巧 – 必用句式 Giving Reasons 當你需要解釋原因的時候,可以用One of the reasons for … is… / The major reason for … is… / The reason why + SVO + is … 例句:The reason why teenagers should develop social skills is to avoid the terrible conversationalists. Explaining Impacts 當你想要解釋事件帶來的影響時,可以用There are a number of consequences. One of them is …;如果想表明是正面影響,可以用One of the benefits / positive effects would be …;如果想表明是負面影響,可以用This can harm

DSE 英文 cut off 3 大注意點

各位DSE考生你哋好呀! 你哋準備dse英文的情況如何呢?普遍同學會操練過往的試卷和者出版社練習,不過,同學會否知道 DSE 英文 CUT OFF 分數呢?很多同學會忽略這個分數,其實這個分數可以幫助同學了解如何達到自己的目標,明白每一份份卷需要獲得多少分數,才可以奪得理想的成績。由此可見, DSE CUT OFF  分數有助同學準備 DSE 英文科。Spencer Sir 將會說明三大注意事項。 建立目標 同學知道 CUTOFF 的分數之後,便可以建立目標。以2019年為例,同學想在英文科取得四級成績,便要在四份卷中取得419分或以上,總共 63%。同學需要作最壞打算,預計明年CUTOFF 分數比往年高。因此,同學需要定下更高目標。 2. 評估自己的英文程度 同學可以試做一份試卷,看看自己的分數如何,然後再加以計算,便會知道自己現時可以取得哪一級成績。如果你現在是一名中六同學,準備就考DSE,你可以根據自己的英文程度,定下可行的目標,目標與自己的距離不要太遠。 3. 2020 年成績不能作準 由於 2020年出現 新冠肺炎,所以 paper 4 口試取消。該年只考核三份試卷,分數較以往低。因此,同學不要以2020 年作參考。 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 English SBA 2023 DSE English SBA即校本評核佔分比重喺2023年,都會照舊,佔全科嘅15%。不過, 說話能力考核將由 2 個減至 1 個。 English SBA Part A Print fiction 小說 Print non-fiction 非小說 Non-print fiction 電影/ 電視劇 Non-print non-fiction 紀錄片 學校通常就會喺同學中四開始,喺呢四類指定課外課物中,指定其中一類讀物。喺同學睇完讀物之後,同學做好左English SBA part A嘅最前置準備喇。 SBA part A要求同學喺中五或者中六針對指定讀物做Individual Presentation或者Group Interaction,視學校嘅指引而定。如果係Group Interaction就會維持喺10 – 12分鐘(視乎每組人數而定),Individual Presentation會維持喺3 – 5分鐘 (可以超過 5 分鐘),都係視學校同老師嘅指引作準。 當中老師會列出幾條指引題/ 處境 (prompts/ situations) 比同學選擇,然後同學需要就題目加入讀物嘅內容、思想、自己嘅感想等等去發表意見或論述。 例子: 中心思想 (Main Idea/ Theme): 作者用咩手法 / 事件去呈現本書嘅中心思想 / 中心思想係咩? 人物特色 (Characterization) 作者點解要用咁大篇幅去刻劃呢個配角 / 人物嘅性格點樣影響到推動劇情? / 人物嘅性格點樣貼合主題 立場題: 你同唔同意主角嘅所作所為 / 評論某人物嘅行動對社會有咩影響 免費試堂 Tips SBA考嘅係英文嘅流暢度同Presentation Skills,建議盡量背稿 /唔睇稿,一來稿係唔計分嘅,二來睇稿可能會令到自己嘅presentation變得唔自然。所以最好就擺多D時間練present同背稿,盡量令到自己嘅presentation流暢同自然。 Group interection 技巧 小組討論萬用句式 1.    First sentence(s) Attention Grabber Good morning / afternoon / evening Hello all, let’s get started / dive in 開始 / kickstart 開始 things / get the ball rolling 開始 Rest of the sentence / follow-up Today, we’re here to discuss / look into / delve into / probe into 探究 / have a closer look at / investigate … The aim of today’s discussion is to discuss / look into /etc. What we’re going to be discussing / talking about today is… 2.    Transition First of all / First off / To begin with / To start with + let’s first talk about… Reasons uncover 揭露 / unearth 發掘 / unveil 揭露 / reveal 揭露 / highlight / cover the reasons / underlying causes / root causes / culprits 罪犯 behind / of … Problems list out / name / walk through / brainstorm / identify / pinpoint 查明 some common problems / issues associated with … Advantages and Disadvantages name / brainstorm / cover a couple of advantages / disadvantages (pros and cons / upsides and downsides) behind … Suggestions / Methods / Ways come up with / go through / bring up some suggestions / ways / tips and hacks / solutions / measures to improve / solve / tackle 處理 / deal with / eradicate 根除… 3.    Topic Sentence Reasons … is likely to be caused by / to be rooted in / to be the outcome of / to be a consequence of / to be the by-product / derivative 衍生物 of … is likely to cause / lead to / contribute to / constitute 構成 / instigate 指示/策動 / prompt / trigger / fuel / incentivize 給..動力 ….
