會考英文2007 Paper 2 Task 6要求考生以President of the Photography Club的身份寫一封家長和特別嘉賓邀請函。

這信要寫的內容,試題要求考生看Data File page 3。那頁有個chart,提供一些資料,又空了一些資料。這種出題方式近年很常見。

那個chart要求的其實是(1 introduction (要找三點);(2What to do and see at the exhibition Data File有類似字眼,是線索);(3 The talks: speakers / time / titles see Winnie’s note (即要你在Data File找出Winnie’s note來理解);(4 Charity; 5 Ending

題目說:You will find all the information you need in the Data File and on the recording. 誠如我在You will need to use information from your notes and the Data File. 這句話考你甚麽?一文所說,這條要求從整個Data File找資料,範圍很廣。

以下分三行列出我寫的答案(invitation letter),資料來源和考評局和我的評語,最後會分析問題的難點。計分的用紅色表示。

 

答案

資料來源

考評局和我的評語

Dear Parents and Friends of the Photography Club

題目提供了,不計分的

 

Our Club will be holding a photography exhibition at the hall of Kowloon College from 2pm to 7 pm on 7 July 2007.  We would like to invite you to the exhibition, and would be delighted if you would come at 1pm, which is one hour before the opening of the exhibition, for a special welcome drink with the Principal.

Recording

1)      …tell them to come one hour earlier

2)      … tell them to come at one pm on Saturday, the seventh of July, to have a special drink with the Principal before the exhibition is open to everyone.

寫對的考生不多,多數invitation的開頭正確,但考生無法清楚寫出1pmcome an hour earlierfor the welcome drink with the Principal,因為考生未能從recording確定上述意思。

有考生將principal錯串作principle,其實,Data File寫了principal

At the exhibition, you will see over 40 photos on display, listen to talks by special guests, and take part in competitions and win prizes.  Teachers with cameras will take photos of you and your family.  Refreshments are available for your enjoyment. (留意,前四點要加上不同的verb才合文法,refreshments也要加點字。)

Data file P.8

What to do and see this year?

1)      Over 40 photos on display

2)      Talks by special guests

3)      Competition & Prizes …

4)      Teachers with cameras to take photos of you and your family

5)      Refreshments

recording有提第24點)

考生未能organiserephrase資料,照抄Data File就無verb不合文法。例如「淺淺地」這樣加也可以:There are over 40 photos on display.  There are also talks by special guests, and competition and prizes.  Teachers with cameras will take (不要照抄to take photos….

有些考生寫出Teachers with cameras to take photos of you and your family and refreshments. verb,無關的兩件事不能用and連接。

Mr. Christopher Doyle, a world renowned cinematographer and photographer, will speak/ deliver a talk on the subject of ‘How to be a Good Photographerat 3pm.  Furthermore, Mr. Peter Wong will give a talk on ‘How to Get Your Photos Publishedat 5pm.

Data File P.6

Christopher Doyle – a world renowned cinematographer and photographer Do mention this in your invitation letter.

Title: How to be a good photographer

Time: 3 pm

Peter Wong – a fashion photographer

Title: How to get your photos published

Time: 5pm

 
Brochures showing the photos on display can be purchased from the Photography Club at $5 each.  The proceeds from the sale of our brochures will be donated to Riding for the Disabled.Data File P.8

Brochures… can be purchased from the Photography Club.

Data File P.9

Proceeds from our exhibition will be donated to a charity.

Recording

Since we are selling brochures at $5 each, we should tell them where the money will go to in your letter.

有些考生不懂brochures (小冊子)和proceeds (賣嘢得到的錢)的意思。有些考生勉強寫出Programmes to brochures will proceed to charity (解不通,沒有分的。)

另外,Data File有一個圖,顯示最多tick的機構(即Riding for the Disabled)可得到捐款,考生看不明白這個圖。

We enclose the advert of the exhibition.  Please refer to the advert for details of the exhibition. Data Fileto look atrefer to其實重複,照抄可能扣style分。第一句的重點是enclose,第二句的重點是refer to。同學如對公文有點認識就不會覺難,否則會不懂。)

Data File P.3 – letter plan

Ending

1)      Tell them to look at the advert which I’ll enclose with letter

2)      Refer to the advert for details of the exhibition

 

We look forward to hearing that you can accept our invitation.  At the same time, please let me know if you have any special requests so that we can try our best to meet them. (自己作的)

題目要求:End your letter politely

 
Yours faithfully,Jackie Ho

President, Photography Club

題目要求:Sign your letter Jackie Ho, President, Photography Club 
 

在這題,Task Fulfillment (資料是否寫足)佔10分,Language5分,Style5分。

 

不是批評考生犯錯,現在有了答案對着,當然好像很容易,但在試場,要答數題,要聽recording,要在整本Data File找資料,找了資料要決定是抄還是改寫,不算很容易的事。一些所謂錯誤,其實是考生在困境中的失敗嘗試,例如,不懂proceeds解「出售東西得到的錢」,但好像記得見過 proceed to(前進),於是,寫了proceed to charity(錯的)。

 

為何principal(校長)在Data File有的,都可以錯寫成principle(原則)?有些考生很少看書,見到書本就頭暈,在試場兵荒馬亂,抄都可以抄錯。

 

為何寫出Teachers with cameras to take photos of you and your family and refreshments. 考生連每句要有verb的概念都缺乏,影相此事日後才發生,要將to take photosverb便要轉成will take photos。考生僅有的知識是兩項事物中間可加上and,於是有理無理加上去,但兩件事無關的,不可加上and

 

要踏實一點,千萬不要迷信某套方法可以令自己不懂英文而能passexam skills是必需的,上述的也可說是exam skills,但不能代替英文底子。一定要懂句子的基本結構,快拿本文法看!
