I have some canned sentences/expressions in this post. They are meant to help you in Paper 1B so that you need not write out each sentence (or you can then write them with relative ease). There are certain phrases that are often used and which can easily be added to your composition. I recommend that you use them as I am aware of the difficulty of thinking out every word afresh under the time constraint of your examination.

本文是一些罐頭句,可以幫助你寫得快一點。試場的時間永遠緊迫﹗ 

眾所周知,考評局告戒考生不要背寫文章,也不要寫burn midnight oil等不合時宜的表達(今天開夜車點的是電燈而不是油!)。我要介紹的不是這些,我想談點作文時多數用得上的表達 

Advice: When you read anything, always try to find out those canned sentences/expressions which suit you! 有讀個這句嗎?It is an experience that I never forget.(那是一次我永遠忘不了的經歷),既可用在開頭,又可用在結尾。稍加變化可以寫作:It is an invaluable/unrivalled (很有價值的/無與倫比的)experience that has caused me to see the ugly side of me(看到自己醜陋的一面).

1.          越来越多人認識到-a growing awareness of There is a growing worldwide awareness of the need for strengthening environmental protection. 全球越来越多人認識到必需加強環境保護。

溫馨提示

又可以寫

l   a territory-wide growing awareness of

l   a growing awareness in Hong Kong of the importance of education/public hygiene/the disparity between the rich and the poor2.          難以想像cannot fancy (v)

I cannot fancy his doing a thing like that.(我難以想像他會幹這樣的事。)

3.          自以為是甚麽甚麽-fancy oneself to bev

She fancied herself to be a good singer.(她自以為自己的歌唱得很好)

4.          踏出第一步的方法-a good starting point for

l   Keeping a diary in English is a good starting point for English learners who want to improve their writing.

5.          a)很喜歡某事物-thrilled at + noun;b)很喜歡做某事-be thrilled to + verb

l   I was thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue further studies in the United States but I thought that I should stay in Hong Kong to look after my frail grandfather who brought me up after my parents deserted me.(我很想到美國升學,但覺得應留在香港照顧身體虛弱的祖父。小時候,父母都離棄我,是祖父將我撫養成人。)

l   I was thrilled at the birthday day gift from Helen, my classmate whom I clandestinely loved.(暗戀)

嚴肅提示

Thrilln)是喜愛至驚慄的程度,傳達正面(不是負面)意思。MJThriller是經典。

Picture五一六通知:五月十六日一定要投自己一票!用你手上的一票向牛鬼蛇神説「不」,向不義說「不」,向功能組別說「不」,向廿三條說「不」。Make you mark in part of the thrilling history of the New Democratic Movement of Hong Kong. (在香港新民主運動動人心絃的歷史上留下您自己的印記!)

6.          不知ABC的看法-(ado not know how my family/people will think about it/my decision; bdo not know how ABC will respond to it

方法提示

沒有甚麽生字或片語,只是純粹運用熟悉的文法,也能寫出像樣的句子。會考作文,既可發揮vocabularyexpressions(硬功),又可發揮文法來建構好句(軟功)。

7.          自我激勵-Motivate

I have a simple tip to motivate myself – to have a burning desire and then channel it into action through realistic targets.(我有一個激勵自己的法門-懷抱強烈的願望,然後通過現實的各個目標,將願望化為行動。)

理解提示

channel作名詞用時,解「渠道;途徑」,在文中作動詞,channel a desire into action的意思你一定可以領會。

8.          受人注意-hold the limelight / attract much attention

(a) Kelly, a beautiful girl with a long hair, delicate features and a slim figure,  always held the limelight/attracted much attention in the class.(一頭秀髮、五官精緻、身段修長,Kelly在班中一直備受矚目。)

(b) The reason why Kelly attracts so much attention is that…

文法提示

兩句用了不同的tense,想提醒你考試時留意tenses

9.          我覺得-I feel + adj(作文少不了會說「我覺得」),你可以用以下的「罐頭句」加功

l   I feel well/comfortable/cheated(覺得受騙)/proud of my work.

l   I feel excited about his new role.(他擔任了新的角色,令我覺得興奮。)

l   (a) I felt pressured. (b) I came under peer pressure(同輩壓力)to cut off friend with John(絕交).

l   I felt miserable.(我覺得好慘)-其實好多人慘過我喎!

l   She was beautiful, but she always felt coldly indifferent to the misery of other people.(她美麗,但對別人的不幸總是很冷漠。)

10.      我覺得-I feel + adv

你可以說I feel strongly/deeply about the experience.(那次經驗令我感受很強烈/很深)

作文提示

這句寫argumentative 時有用,例如:Many/People feel strongly/deeply about the incident/what Bowtie said…

11.      我覺得-I feel + adv

你可以說He feel himself unwanted at the party(他覺得在派對中不受歡迎。)

12.      我覺得-I feel + noun

你可以說I feel a deep urge to improve my knowledge and share my experiences.(有強烈的衝動,要增進知識和分享經驗)

你可以說He felt a strong urge to urinate(小便)/to stool(大便)(統稱「內急」)。
