John | 17th Aug 2010, 14:17 PM | HKDSE英文科練習 | (1525 Reads)

The format of this exercise – asking you to find words which could be replaced – is adapted from Paper 1, Question 4 of the HKDSE English Language Information Package.

An advertisement on the strengths of the Standard is used in this exercise with a view to highlighting the importance of reading a broad range of genres (fiction, magazines, newspapers, posters, leaflets, advertisements, user manuals, speeches, etc).  I would also like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the following advice from the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment:

Learners can be encouraged to notice and read the signs, display boards, notices and advertisements in their immediate environment. These materials can promote the development of functional reading skills and help learners to relate English Language learning to daily life. (P.81 of the English Language Curriculum and Assessment Guide)

·        It’s twice as tasty, with lashings of juicy local news

·        It’s easier to digest, with its bite-sized tabloid format
