How to Pass HKDSE English with Flying Colours Paper 3 Skills 5b輯。(這篇是第5b輯,是第5a輯的續篇,第5a輯有前10類題種。)

11.      Some questions may use words (i) which are completely different from that of the recording, (ii) are spoken only once and (iii) in an unexpected way in the recording. (Recording說的是short running,但給你選的正確optionsprint)

Recording:So why was a short running race chosen in the end?
Question & answer:Activity chosenoCyclingoBarbecueoPicnicþ
Sprint (短跑)
12.      Some questions may require you to rewrite the wording of the recording to give a grammatical answer.
Recording:Ash: I have a temperature
Question:Who has a temperature?
Answer:Ash has a temperature.
Comment:You need to change ‘I have’ to ‘Ash has’ to give a sensible and grammatical answer. (你有時要將你從recording聽到的改寫,一則要合文法,二則有時不改寫而照搬的答案是解不通的)
13.      Some questions may test if you know a ‘difficult’ or unfamiliar word and its spelling.Example 1
Recording:Jill: What are we going to? Miss Lee: Ngau Tau Kok
Question  & answer:The destination of Jill and Miss Lee is Blake Garden
Comment:If you don’t know the spelling of the place name ‘Blake Garden (卜公花園), you cannot give a correct answer.
        Example 2
Recording:Paul: I think people should read Peter’s column.Jenny: Why would they read Peter’s column?  It’s a rag sheet (垃圾專欄).
Answer  & answer:Jenny doesn’t think people should read Peter’s column because it is a rag sheet.
Comment:If you cannot hear ‘rag sheet’ or do not know the spelling, you cannot give a correct answer.
Further examples

Can you spell the following words when you hear them?

Gooseberry (情侶之間的電燈胆)hen party (只有女性參加的聚會,J會錯聽作hand party吧?)jinx (厄運)theme park (主題公園,J會錯聽作 thin party 吧?)tripod (三腳架)wagged its tail (狗搖尾)

14.      Some part of the recording may contain some irrelevant material in between the answers to distract you. (有意離題,recording錄入較長的無關的對答,分散你注意,然後漫不經意的說出正確答案,而且只說一次)
Recording:Jenny: Who should be the winner?  Individual students or the whole class?Miss Mok: Last year, prizes were given to students individually. I have talked about this with the principal. Both of us think that it would be better if classes competed as an individual and a whole class would be given the price.
Question & answer:Who should be given the price? A whole class
Comment:The dialogue is relatively long and contains two distractors, namely ‘last year, prizes were given to students individually’ and ‘classes competed as an individual’. (另一種有意離題的陷阱,是recording首先說出較長的看似無關的對答,這些內容其實是較後的另一題的答案,然後才說出順序的一題的答案,手法類似以下要談的第15類,但更陰濕,因為內容更長)
15.      Some questions may set out items in an order which is different from that in which the items are spoken of in the recording (亂序鬼).
Recording:Mr. Chan: We may include cameras, computers, televisions, answering machines, telephone systems and more that are currently refurbished and sold. Tony: How about fax machines?Mr. Chan: Not at this stage, I think.Tony: And photocopiers?Mr. Chan: It’s a good idea.
Question & answer:Items to be included:a) answering machines þ b) photocopiers þc) printers ýd) fax machines ýe) computers þ
16.      The recording may test your ability to (i) distinguish between similar pronunciation, e.g. sea view and NOT see view; bedroom (one word) and NOT bed room (two words); roof garden (屋頂花園/空中花園) and NOT root garden/wood garden; first and third; thirteen and thirty; fifteen and fifty; (考你辨別同音字的能力) (ii) convert between amounts expressed in numbers and in words, e.g. fill in $100,000 when you hear hundred thousand dollars. (考你聆聽數字的能力)
Recording:Mr. Chan: The first price would come to no more than eighteen thousand dollars.Tony: Eighty?Mr. Chan: Eighteen
Question & answer:Amount of the first price: $18,000 // eighteen thousand dollars
Comment:The correct answer is neither eighty nor eighteen, but $18,000 or eighteen thousand dollars.
17.      The recording may state the answer twice and with exactly the same wording. The examiner wants you to get that mark. (有時有些送分題,一個答案講兩次,因為考評局不能讓太多考生不合格)18.      The recording may lay a landmine among some good clues. (在兩個提示之間埋下一個「陰你」的地雷)
Recording:Miss Mok:  First of all, bababababaJenny: bababababaMiss Mok: bababababa. This is the second point.Jenny: Doesn’t that mean that bababababa.Miss Mok: No, what I am saying is that bababababa.Jenny: What is the last point? Miss Mok: bababababa.
Comment:This part of the recording may give you three answers. Notice that the second answer is stated before the introducing word ‘second’, making it easy for candidates to miss the answer!
19.      The recording may (i) give you some misleading clues (給你誤導的提示), (ii) give you a wrong answer first and then rectify it (先說錯的然後修正).
Recording:Miss Wong: Now we should consider how long it would take. Jenny: Do you mean how many sessions of the training.Miss Wong: Yes, we need to consider that as well, but when I said how long it would take, I actually mean the time we need to prepare for the training. Do you have any idea if our training would consist of 3 one-hour sessions?Jenny: I think one-and-half months would be enough. Miss Wong: Let’s make it two months, for a three-session training program.
Question & answer:How many sessions will the training program consist of?Three // three one-hour sessionsHow long it would take to prepare for the training program: Two months
Comment:Misleading clue
What follows ‘how long it would take’ is ‘3 one-hour sessions’, but ‘3 one-hour sessions’ is not the correct answer for ‘how long it would take’.
Again, the recording mentions a wrong answer before it says the right one:
One-and-half months
Let’s make it two months
(這條的難點是,Miss Wonghow long it would take (要多長時間)Jenny卻問「你是說要多少堂嗎?」拉開了話題,這是第一次陰你。之後,Miss Wong說:「多少堂也是要考慮的,但現在要談的是訓練需要多少準備時間,例如準備三堂一小時(3 one-hour sessions)的訓練要多少時間?」(這個「三堂」不是how long it would take的答案,卻是之後的問題how many sessions的答案),這是第二次陰你。最後,終於說了one-and-half-month,然後又立刻改成two months,這是第三次陰你)
20.      Sometimes, the recording may state the answer twice and with some difference in wording. You can score the mark by filling in one answer only. However, if you can hear both of the alternative answers clearly, you may fill in both to play safe, but that means spending a little more time. Make your own judgment. (同一個答案,會以不同的字眼講兩次,你可以寫其中一個,如你兩個答案都聽得清楚,是否兩個答案都寫?要自己判斷,寫多了不扣你分,一個寫錯了你還有一個可能對,但你會花多了答題時間,等於答另一題的時間少了)
Example 1
Recording:In the TV program, some competitors are eliminated every week. In other words, they are kicked off.
Question:Feature of the TV Program______________________________________
Answer:

Some competitors are eliminated every week.
(
J: This answer can get full mark.)
OR
Some competitors are eliminated every week.
They are kicked off.
(
J: This answer can also get full mark.)

Example 2
Recording:Miss Mok: The performance of last year was awesome.Jenny: Pardon.Miss Mok: I mean it was very good.
Question & answer:Miss Mok’s comment:Last year’s performance: awesome // good
Comment:If you do not know the spelling of ‘awesome’, fill in the word ‘good’ and you can get the same mark.
21.      The recording may state the answer twice. The answer stated in the second time is said in a slower way. When you hear words which are spoken very slowly, take them down. They are usually the answer.
Recording:Miss Wong: I think it is most important that the price would be set at an appropriate level so that the majority of students can afford it. Jenny: Hold on a minute. ‘Set… an… appropriate… price… so… that… students… can… afford… it.
Comment:(i) Recording慢慢說的詞,通常是答案,寫下吧 (ii) As mentioned in Question 20, if you cannot spell ‘appropriate’, you may write ‘suitable’ or ‘good’ and get the same mark.
22.      Some questions require you to (i) listen for information from a relatively long part of the recording and (ii) copy/rewrite relatively more. (有些題目要你聽的較多,而且需要照寫和改寫的也較多)Example 1
Recording:Sylvia:  Do you think there is some sort of relationship between your excellence in oral English and your personality?Jenny: I think there should be some relationship between the two. I try to be as talkative as I can be, particularly in the area I’m interested in. I also like to read and think, and I think reading and thinking may also help improve my oral ability. Sylvia: Is there anything else you do to improve your English speaking ability.Jenny: I take every initiative to talk to Americans, no matter I know them or not. This can really push me into a situation that I cannot come back and have to express myself without thinking too much.
Question & answer:According to Jenny, what three things she does to improve her oral English?(a) as talkative as she can be, particularly in the area she is interested in(b) read and think(c) take every initiative to talk to Americans, no matter she knows them or not
Comment:(1) The words in pink are rewritten (e.g. Ishe; I’mshe is; I knowshe knows(2) As shown in (a), (b) and (c) above, you need not answer the question in a complete sentence. Note that (b) and (c) have verbs but (a) does not. This is completely acceptable and you can get full mark so far as your answer is clear.
Example 2
Recording:Manager: I think you should consider what kinds of people you would like to have in the course
Question & answer:A point to be considered:  the kinds of people (to enrol) in the course // the kinds of people (to join) the course
Comment:Note that ‘you’ must be omitted. You may add ‘to enroll in’ or ‘to join’, or just write ‘the kinds of people in the course’.

Further example

How do you get people interested (Things to consider) how to get people interested. 

 

考試本來並不複雜,來來去去不過四個字:充滿陷阱。
