Both the gerund and the present participle end with the "-ing" form.  There is only a slight difference in some sentences between a participial phrase and a gerund phrase.  The difference is emphasis.  The participial construction stresses the doer or the thing/matter; the gerund construction highlights the activity. Gerund 和 present participle ending都是ing。在一些句子,gerund phrase present participial phrase 的分別很小。兩者的不同在於強調點。Participle的結構強調「施事者或者有關的事物/事件」。Gerund的結構強調「活動」。)

以下是2012 DSE English Language Paper 2 Part B Question 7:

You are an intern at Hong Kong Correctional Services.  The government has launched a campaign called Second Chance to encourage employers to recruit reformed criminals or drug addicts.  Write a letter to all Hong Kong businesses outlining the new project, explaining the benefits and persuading them to join the scheme. (about 400 words)

 

分析:

1.          重點已如上用pink色標出。

2.          這算是一條有關「聘用釋犯」(employing ex-offenders)的題目,但是否要懂很多這方面的words and expressions 才可以作得好?或許是,但這種想法會帶來問題。因為,你在試場遇到的將會是另一條題目,而類似的「專題題目」可以數以千計(有多少話題就有多少題目),難道你去背誦數百個專題的words and expressions?即使這樣做,你仍然沒有把握你已經「讀中了」。若靠老師「貼題」,和賭博相差無幾。

3.          解決方法:不論任何題目,作文時運用常識(包括想得周全、合理,但不用太深入);運用英語能力(句子結構、文法、語氣、意蘊),運用作文技巧(起承轉合)。見以下例子。

4.          學以致用,學以為人!想一想,做人處事亦然,不能一味依靠靈丹聖葯(這等於放棄思考),你只能靠自己的思考和努力。

 

現將題目試作如下,附解釋。
