2002年會考作文題:You have recently read a newspaper article about a government plan to spend millions of dollars on Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology. The money will be used to develop computerized buildings and vehicles…write a letter to the editor of the newspaper explaining your views… 

答題技巧一

試題說,你讀了一份newspaper article,其中說甚麽甚麽。你寫letter to the editor的時候,不要重抄這些甚麽甚麽。試題要求的,是explain your views,不是重抄試題的原話。 

但是,對背景隻字不提也不成。可以這樣寫:

Dear Editor,

I refer to the article about the government’s plan to spend heavily on AI technology. 

如試題說,你看了一位劉夢遺先生有關同性婚姻的讀者來函,你feel strongly,要你express your views,你可以這樣寫:

Dear Editor,

I write in response to the letter of Mr. M.W. Lau on same-sex marriage, published on 4 June 2011.  

答題技巧二

Letter to Editor的試題,是要你用書信的形式寫議論文請謹記:第一句交代背景(見上文),第二句就要表明立場,然後說明支持及或/反對的理由及/或例子,最尾一段To conclude, … 

所以,以上兩例的第一段應為:

Dear Editor,

I refer to the article about the government’s plan to spend heavily on AI technology. I do not believe that spending hugely on AI can benefit our society. 

Dear Editor, 

I write in response to the letter of Mr. M.W. Lau on same-sex marriage(同性婚姻), published on 4 June 2011. I agree with Mr. Lau’s idea that the family system is a cornerstone of society.  However, I don’t think that same-sex marriage undermines the family. 

另一種不用你引述背景的Letter to the Editor題目(答題技巧三:直接寫)

以下是2007Paper 1A Letter to the Editor作文題修改版

Clever 重要?抑或beautiful/handsome重要?你點睇?Write a letter to the Young Post giving your opinions. 

這條不需要你作任何引述,你可以這樣寫:

Dear Editor, 

The majority of us think that it is more important to be clever than beautiful/handsome, but I observe that too many of us are just paying lip service to the statement.  Do they really believe that intelligence is more important than appearance?  And if yes, have they really set their mind on improving their intelligence? 

Indeed, vanity is something in us and eats in everything we do by way of outward adornment, whether it be the clothing, the makeup, the hair styles, the jewelry, or the perfume/colognes.…

考評局2007年的報告談到一條Letter to the Editor 題目:Only the stronger candidates were able to recognize that they had to take a stance to begin with (只有較強的考生知道一開始就要表明立場), in this case whether he/she agreed or disagreed with the statement(就這條題目而言,就要表明自己是否同意題目的那句話). Good candidates then proceeded in the body of the letter to support, defend or explain their position with examples and supporting evidence(然後,在信的正文提出支持、辯解或解釋,加上例子和證據).
