Warm Christmas (圣诞暖流)

2006-07-29 14:18

  每年的圣诞节,香港的许多学校都会举行圣诞嘉年华会,名为“圣诞暖流”(Warm Christ-mas),我在STS中跟学生们谈及如何参与这次活动,并讨论首次举行的“便服日”的各项安排。

  TEACHER'S

  Dear students,

  This afternoon the Class Association of 4C had a very short meeting. I was there with them in the classroom. We talked about business concerning the Warm Christmas. We finally decided that our class, 4C, will contribute articles to a charity sale in Warm Christmas. So, I very much hope that all 4C members will prepare something to bring back to school for the charity sale. I hope that you will bring back something really nice——something that can sell. We just want to help the school to raise money for charity purposes. I was wondering what activety 4D is going to join in. Perhaps some4D STS members can tell us about this.

  We also talked about the "problem" of coming back to school in casual wear. Some of you agreed with me that it is not so good to make students donate three hundred dollars in order to gain permission to comeback to school in casual wear on the day of Warm Christmas. I think we are not making donations if we do this. it is like we are buying the special privilege of coming back to school not in school uniform. He-manmade a very funny, humorous, tricky, smart and meaningful suggestion——we contribute two hundred and ninety-nine dollars. This is to show that we just want to make donation. We don't want to mix up donation with coming back to school in casual wear. What do you think? You may disagree with us. That is all right. We may hold different opinions on a certain issue. Remember—— this is a democratic society. You can freely voice your opinions. Do tell me yours in your STSs. OKay!

  I would like to thank those who are working on the letter boxes. Very soon they will fix all the letter boxes on the notice board. We all should help to protect them and we all should make the best use of them. Letter boxes are good things for communication and you may also drop somebody a message just for fun. You know—school life sometimes is too boring and we have to think of some ways to make it fun.

  Five to six of you are feeling very sad and depressed. I cannot mention their names. I just want them to know that like them, I am sad and depressed once in a while. There is not much we can do to get out of it. We just wait until we are strong enough at heart to get rid of the depression and shadow of sadness all together.

  这里的had可以用held来代替;不少学生误以为held是现在式。

  留意当business解作事务/职业时,是不可数名词;但当business解作“商业机构/商店”时是可数名词。

  留意“contribute”的用法

  ● contribute to society =对社会作出贡献

  ● contribute money to charities =捐钱给慈善团体

  article的不同解释有:作为冠词(即a、an、the)或解作“物件/文章”。在这里则解作物件

  留意正确用法:

  ●I hope that… √

  ●I very hope that… ×

  ●I very much hope that… √

  留意不同解释:

  ● The shop sells(出售)clothes.

  ● This product can't sell(没有销路)。

  raise money for charity purposes 解作“为慈善目的而筹款”。

  虽然这并非指过去的事情但习惯上用过去进行时。

  留意不同用法:

  ●in uniform =穿着制服

  ●in sports wear =穿着运动服

  ●in casual wear =穿着便服

  make的意思可包括迫使、说服、命令或劝告等。留意正确用法:

  ●…make them donate… √

  ●…make them to donate… ×

  ●…make them donating… ×

  可代替in order to gain…的句型有:

  ● so as to gain…

  ● in order that they can gain…

  gain可以用get、obtain或have代替。

  这里用现在进行时来表达:“我们不算是捐献”。

  This is to…是用来说明某行动的目的。

  mix up A with B的意思是“把 A和 B混淆了”。

  这里的issue可以用problem、matter或case来代替。

  voice作动词的意思是“清楚而强烈地表达……”。

  are working on…的意思是“致力于……”。

  留意fix的不同用法:

  ●fix the problem =解决问题

  ●fix the boxes =固定箱子

  ●fix a date =定下日期

  for fun的意思是“取乐/作为消遣”。

  留意fun作为名词时的用法:

  ● It is no fun. √

  ● It is fun. √

  ● It is very fun. ×

  ● It is great fun. √

  这里的mention用say代替也可以;但用disclose则并不恰当,会令人联想到不好的事情。

  once in a while形容某事情会偶尔发生,但不经常。

  留意不同用法:

  ●There is not much(不可数)…

  ●There are not many(可数)…

  这里的 get rid of用 remove代替也可。

  LANGUAGE

  Topic sentence

  要写好一篇文章,除了内容丰富、文笔流畅之外,还要有妥善的铺排,使读者能最有效及最准确地了解文章的内容。因此,文章的分段(paragraphing)是相当重要的。以一篇300字的会考作文为例,最理想的是分为4-5小段(paragraph)。但同学们须要留意的是:不要只为分段而分段。分段的目的是把文章内不同大意(main idea)的部分分隔开,使文章更有条理,还可让作者的思路清晰地传递给读者。因此,每段的第一、第二句应该为该段的“主题句”(topic sentence),说明该段大意。请看本单元的例子。

  EXAMPLE

  我在STS中公开谈论关于“便服日”的事情,结果得到不少同学的回应,并提出一些建议。请根据所给的字母填写正确的单词,使该主题句成为完整的句子。
