會考英語- Paper 1A 必備應試能力七種(以2007年和2008年試題為例)一文,談到Paper 1A考驗的七種能力,拿2007年的題目作了個統計,並非要預測走勢,但有三項發現:

1)有一項能力(react to the text)考得較少。

2)有些題目雖只一分,但考兩種能力,見表後的附註。

3)有些地方用exam skills是幫得上的,但有些地方用自然反應和正道理解已很足夠,用skills反會迷失,見下文對四條題目的評論。

# 0.5 mark is allocated from “specific information to “unfamiliar word”, since the phrase plastic surgeons, after it is found out, has to be changed to plastic surgeries to be grammatically correct for 1 mark.  This reflects that there are some “mixed” questions.

## 0.5 mark is allocated from “comprehension” to “unfamiliar word”, since a candidate cannot answer correctly if he cannot spell restaurant.

想在這裡談四條題目。

Q35(答對率:51%

In line 23, what does ‘this industry’ refer to? (51%

一般答代名詞題目的exam skills會教你(1)讀本句子找前述詞;(2)找不到,看前一或數句;(3)仍找不到,看後數句。

有關的一段是這樣的:

Lagerfeld is lively, despite having stepped off a plane 24 hours ago.  He says this is because of his disciplined routine, which includes no drugs, alcohol or cigarettes and at least seven hours sleep every night.  His diet these days mainly consists of low-fat or steamed food.  ‘Last night, we had dinner at Spoon, he says.  ‘It was good, but I ate very little.  I only eat steamed fish and vegetables – no butter, no sweets.  I have to be very careful because I have to keep my size.  It’s important in this industry.

對不起,若只是機械式的運用exam skills,在這段(或下一段)找不到industry 的前述詞,但若正道的理解全文,這題倒十分容易,全文是說一名設計師,this industry當然是fashion industry

Q51 (答對率:36%

Why do you think people were surprised when Lagerfeld worked with H&M?

正確的選項是:

D. Lagerheld usually designs expensive clothes but H&M clothes are cheap.

passage裡的clue是這句:

Last year, Lagerfeld surprised people by working together with H&M a popular fashion chain, making it acceptable for designers to go mass market.

to go mass market推論(infer)或理解(comprehend)出cheap。這些靠的是實力,技巧幫不了。

Q52 (答對率:55%

Lagerheld was _______ about his experience with H&M. Happy not happy

答案是not happy

這條倒可用exam skills幫忙。Clue是:However, Lagerfeld is certain that he won’t repeat the experience.  He was furious when H & M extended his collection for the British store to sizes 14-16…

即使解不懂全句,又不懂furious何解,但從won’t repeat the experience應可猜到負面意義而選unhappy

有些題目要求對文義較全面的理解:

Q33 (答對率:50%

In line 14, Lagerfeld said, ‘I shouldn’t say that though, huh?” because people might think that he is being …

A.      boring

B.      dishonest

C.      stupid

D.     rude

Clue 是稍前的一句:A charismatic personality, he’s also brutally honest.  ‘May I say something horrible?’ he asks.  ‘I think Chinese women are more handsome than Chinese men.  I shouldn’t say that, though, huh?’

單從”I think Chinese women…”這句很難判斷,但前一點有Brutally 表示rude
