How to Pass HKDSE English with Flying Colours Paper 1題種分析系列4輯。

6.     Idiomatic usage question

PassageWe are organising a donation to the Salvation Army.  They are interested in receiving the following items, which will then be sent to families in need:
  • books
  • shoes; and
  • electrical equipment.
Should you have items to donate, please bring them to Mary Lee. Alternatively, do you have a blog or do you know of cool ways to help us spread the word? 
QuestionIn the above passage, ‘the word’ refers toA.      the Salvation Army.B.      news of the donation.C.      books.D.     a blog.

Comment 1: The idiom ‘spread the word’ means ‘tell people about something’. Here ‘spread the word’ means ‘spread news of the donation’.

Comment 2: Paper 1總有一些有關習語(idiom)的題目。認識習語既有助閱讀理解,亦有助寫作表達,有些習語也有趣。例1:如We are not on the same wavelength (我地「唔對嘴形」/話不投機)。例2She is full of beans (佢好似「上左鏈」/生龍活虎)。例3She is riding for a fall if she keeps talking to her boss so rudely. (如果她和主管說話時老是這樣無禮,她是在「撩鬼攞命」/自討苦吃)。例4You are dicing with death when you abuse drugs. (你濫用藥物是在玩命/冒生命危險)。例5The tuition school jumped the gun by enrolling students on some courses before they got a license. (補習學校還未取得執照就偷步/違規搶先為部分課程收生) 

陶君行和社民連今屆行委令本人非常、非常失望。對於毫不飲水思源的人,從來沒有好感。
