各位DSE同學有冇試過明明覺得自己答案「中晒 point」,但偏偏分數總係「爭梗啲」?你可能係缺少咗 connectives/ transitional words(連接詞/轉折詞)!

佢哋係句子/文章中有承上啟下之用;可以幫你即時「執靚」你篇文,令文章更為通順有條理。

更重要嘅係,呢啲字詞唔係得英文科先「啱使」!大家如果亦有用英文選修其他如經濟,歷史甚至生物等科目,呢啲字詞係絕對可以係你作答 essay questions(短文問題)時「大派用場」㗎!

因為無論咩科目都好,清晰有條理都係短文作答嘅關鍵--試想想閱卷員每日可能需要批改數十張考卷,已經要「一目十行」;寫得唔清唔楚,鋪排雜亂無章嘅答卷唔單止影響閱卷員對答案嘅理解,仲極有可能因為觀感差而被扣印象分呢!

一於記低以下超實用 connectives/ transitional words (連接詞/轉折詞),下次測驗考試時試下運用:

 

1. 首先

  • To begin with
  • In the first place
  • First and foremost

 

2. 其次

  • Furthermore
  • In addition (to that)
  • Moreover
  • Besides
  • Next

 

3. 最後

  • Finally
  • Last but not least
  • Lastly

 

記低以上同類字詞,以後就唔好次次都用firstly, secondly, thirdly喇!
