How to Pass HKDSE English with Flying Colours Paper 3 Skills 8輯。 (This entry is a revised version of my previous post HKDSE How to take notes from the recording and write character profiles) 

 

Following is a typical question of Paper 3 Section 1. It is an example of how to take notes from the recording and organize them for an extended writing task. 

Write a brief profile of Daniel Lai, a character in a soup opera ‘Roommates’, for the Hong Kong People Magazine. Refer to the notes you took from the recording on page 2, and the information from page 5, of your Data File. (典型的extended writing tasks 要求你根據「聽」和「讀」回來的資料寫出一篇文章。「聽」指你要從recording最後一段take notes。「讀」指你要從Data File的一或數篇短文/節錄找資料。本例是個縮影。) 

Data File page 5:

Roommates profiles

For the Hong Kong People Magazine, can you write a profile of Daniel Lai in ‘Roommates’. Be honest about their good and bad points and remember to elaborate with examples of their behaviour.

Note: Page 5 just tells you to elaborate both good and bad points with examples and does not contain other useful points. All information for completing the task is contained in the recording. (題目要你根據Data File page 5Recording來寫Daniel Lai profile(簡介)。但Data File Page 5 只叫你留意寫出good and bad points,沒有其他了,之後你要「聽」Recording(在本文其實是「讀」Recording),從而記下Daniel Laigood and bad points。留意,這類既要你「看」Data File也要你「聽」Recording來寫文章的題目,往往不對稱。意思是:你從Data File得到的資料可能比從Recording聽到的資料多許多或者少許多。) 

Recording:

Gloria:      I’d like to make some comments on Daniel Lai.

Host:        Yes, what a handsome young airman he is, wouldn’t you say?

Gloria:      Er, in fact, I don’t like him so much. What I want to say is that sometimes we have to view a person as a whole. Handsome or not, he was not nice. I hate people who don't lift the lid and flush the toilet after using it, and unfortunately, Daniel is one of them.   I mean that his way was really sickening.

Host:        Oh yes, it was, wasn’t it?

Gloria:      He was also thoughtless and selfish. He always left clumps of dirty food pieces behind after having meal and his roommates had to clean them for him. He was really thoughtless and selfish in that way.

Host:        So, poor Daniel is not someone to your liking! Do you have any other comments?  Something nice perhaps?

Gloria:      Well, but there was still something not nice about him. I thought he was rather ill-mannered and discourteous when he answered the phone.

Host:        Ill-mannered and discourteous? In what way?

Gloria:      Well, he didn’t tell the caller who he was or anything. That was really impolite. And he never offered to take a message!   

Host:        So, you are not going to be Daniel’s roommate!

Gloria:      Of course not!Host:        Anyone here likes to speak up in Daniel’s defense?  Do I see a hand there?  Can I have your name, sir? 

Simon:      Simon Chan.

Host:        Is it all right if I call you Simon.

Simon:      Of course.

Host:        What defence you have for Daniel?

Simon:      Well, I thought Daniel conveyed a sense of cheerfulness

Host:        … a sense of cheerfulness…

Simon:      … and he was comical and made the others chuckle (輕笑), which is quite important if you are sharing a small flat with others. You need to have a chortle (哈哈大笑) from time to time. Also, he helped Kay with her mathematics homework.

Host:        Oh, yes, I remember that, Kay was always busy with her mathematics homework. 

Daniel Lai (你從Recording記下的notes,包括good and bad points)

1.      Sickening because he never lifted the lid and flushed the toilet after using it

2.      Thoughtless and selfish because he left clumps of dirty food pieces behind after having meal, and others had to clean them

3.       Rude/ill-mannered and discourteous on telephone because he neither said who he was nor offered to take messages

4.       Helped Kay with her mathematics homework

5.       Conveyed a sense of cheerfulness and was comical 

Suggested Answer (這是你根據你寫下的notes 寫成的文章)
Daniel Lai was a person whom people will find it sickening to live with, as he never cleaned the bathroom after using it1 point. He was thoughtless and selfish, and always left dirty clumps of good pieces behind for others to clean1 point. He was rude and ill-mannered and discourteous in answering telephone, because he would neither say who he was nor offer to take messages1 point. But he was not all bad. He conveyed a sense of cheerfulness like a comedian and brought laughter to others1 point. Besides, he helped Kay with her mathematics homework1 point.

 

一些事兒,我總不在某些場合與之相逢,例如,溫習時未能解決的難點,卻在試卷與之相逢。
