Sample Essay

Dear Editor,

I am writing to recommend Mr. Angus Yung, a person whom I think has contributed a lot to our society.

I met Mr. Yung three years ago in a charitable fund-raising event. Mr. Yung was the organizer of the event. He struck me as an energetic and hard-working person, and we became friends after the event.

As I knew him more, I was impressed by his dedication to helping the disadvantaged in society. In addition to his full-time job as a private investment banker, he devotes most of his spare time to “We Care”, a non-governmental organization established by him in 2009.

Utilizing his professional network, Mr. Yung raised funds to establish a tutorial centre offering free lessons to the underprivileged children. Thanks to his effort, many children have benefitted from the scheme over the past few years, and they have successfully completed tertiary education.

In view of Mr. Yung’s remarkable achievement, I sincerely hope that Mr. Yung can win the competition.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Wong

範文分析:

在第一段,範文開頭就寫到了作者要推薦的人是誰,”I am writing to recommend Mr. Angus Yung”(我寫信是為了推薦安格斯.楊先生),並且肯定了他對我們社會做出了很大的貢獻。

 

在第二段,範文主要寫了作者是怎麼認識楊先生的,”I met Mr. Yung three years ago in a charitable fund-raising event”, 原來作者是三年前在一次慈善籌款活動中認識的楊先生,因為楊先生是這次慈善籌款活動的組織者,”Mr. Yung was the organizer of the event”. 那麼,楊先生給人的第一印象是什麼樣的呢?範文也提到了,”He struck me as an energetic and hard-working person”, 他給我的印象是一個精力充沛、努力工作的人。

 

在第三段,範文則是讓大家更加瞭解這位楊先生,其中提到了三個關於楊先生的資訊:1/ “his dedication to helping the disadvantaged in society”, 他有幫助社會弱勢群體的奉獻精神; 2/ “his full-time job as a private investment banker”, 他的全職工作是一名私人投資銀行家;3/ “he devotes most of his spare time to “We Care”, a non-governmental organization established by him in 2009″, 他把大部分業餘時間投入到他2009年創建的非政府組織”We Care”.

他私人投資銀行家的身份奠定了他為社會做貢獻的基礎;非政府組織”We Care”給他為社會做貢獻提供了平臺;而他無私奉獻的精神更是決定了他將會為社會做出巨大的貢獻。

 

在第四段,範文主要闡述了兩個資訊,一是楊先生主要做出了什麼貢獻,”Utilizing his professional network, Mr. Yung raised funds to establish a tutorial center offering free lessons to the underprivileged children”, 楊先生利用他的專業網路,籌集資金建立了一個輔導中心,為貧困兒童提供免費課程。二是楊先生做出貢獻有什麼積極的影響,”many children have benefitted from the scheme over the past few years, and they have successfully completed tertiary education”, 這些年來,很多兒童從這項計畫中受惠,並順利完成高等教育。

 

最後一段,作者再次肯定了楊先生的貢獻,並希望他能贏得比賽。
