10-day-planner-day-6

昨天,我們學習了「很大程度上同意」的寫作方法,第六天還是學習關於 ‘to what extent’ 類型。這裏有一個技巧分享給大家,那就是當你看到類似 ‘most’, ‘best’ 和 ‘only’ 這些單詞時,立場最好選擇不同意。原因很簡單,就是想法太極端了。我們來看一下這類題型的寫作框架:

總括而言,第一段,引言,然後表明你的立場,25字。第二段,肯定題目中那個因素的重要性,70字。 第三段       寫出你認為的第一個更重要的因素,70字。第四段寫出你認為的第二個更重要的因素,70字。第五段,總結,25字。比如說這問題:

When choosing a job, the salary is the most important consideration. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

在選擇工作時,薪水是最重要的考慮因素。你在多大程度上同意或不同意? 好的,這個問題當中有‘most’,這時候你可以毫不猶豫地站在「不同意」的立場。我們先簡單看看Sample Essay:

在選擇工作時,薪水是最重要的考慮因素。你在多大程度上同意或不同意? 好的,這個問題當中有‘most’,這時候你可以毫不猶豫地站在「不同意」的立場。我們先簡單看看Sample Essay:

Sample Essay

[1] Many people choose their jobs based on the amount of the salary. I disagree with the idea that money is the key consideration when choosing a career, because I believe that other factors are equally important.

[2] Undeniably, money is necessary in order for people to meet their basic needs. For example, most people need money to pay for housing, food, bills, health care, and education. They consider it a priority to earn a decent salary that allows them to cover these needs and have a reasonable quality of life. If people choose their jobs based on enjoyment or other non-financial factors, they may find it difficult to support themselves. Artists and musicians, for instance, are known for choosing a career path that they love, but that does not always provide them with enough money to live comfortably.

[3] Nevertheless, I believe that other considerations are just as important as salary. To begin with, a pleasant workplace environment is equally vital when choosing a job. Having understanding supervisors and friendly colleagues, for example, can make a huge difference to employees’ levels of job satisfaction.  Moreover, many people’s job satisfaction comes from the skills and experience they have acquired from work, as well as their professional achievements. Many people enjoy their work not only because of the salary, but also because work can help them realize their true potential.

[4] In conclusion, while salary certainly affects people’s choice of profession, I do not believe that it outweighs all other factors. It is suggested that other factors such as a pleasant workplace environment and the realization of potential are equally important.

第一段:在引言當中你就可以說寫「有些人認為在選擇工作時,薪水是最重要的考慮因素。而我不同意這一觀點。」即 ‘I disagree with the idea that money is the key consideration when choosing a career.’一定要表明自己的立場。

 

第二段:這時候你可以先肯定一下薪水在選擇工作時候的重要性,提到“為了滿足人們的基本需求,錢是必不可少的。”即 ‘money is necessary in order for people to meet their basic needs’。

第三段:從這開始,你將開始否定薪水是最重要的考慮因素。並且說出第一個你覺得比薪水更重要的因素,然後解釋說明。比如說愉快的工作環境同樣重要, 即‘a pleasant workplace environment is equally vital when choosing a job’ 和許多人的工作滿意度來自於他們從工作中獲得的技能和經驗,以及他們的專業成就,即‘Many people’s job satisfaction comes from the skills and experience they have acquired from work, as well as their professional achievements’。你也可以寫出第二個你覺得比薪水更重要的因素,然後解釋說明,比如說工作壓力和職位晉升。

最後,在第四段做了一個總結。即愉快的工作環境和實現夢想的潛力(和薪水)是同等重要的。‘A pleasant workplace environment and the realization of potential are equally important (as the salary).’

整體上,這篇範文完成的還可以。不足之處就是,在陳述薪水重要性的時候花了很大的篇幅。結果就是,文章中的兩個其他更重要的因素沒能展開詳細來寫。所以,大家在寫作的時候,一定要先列好提綱,然後按照今天學習的框架,按照五個自然段去寫作。
