拒當英文寫作課中的句點王–造句練習

雪人在教英文寫作時很常碰到一種「惜字如金」的學生,明明腦袋裡有很多想法但就是很省話,句子總是寫得短短的,不是沒有時間就是沒有地點;或者通篇都是使用單句,句子之間看不出是因果關係還是條件句。這個時候雪人會用一些方法來延長學生寫的句子,畢竟有意思完整、詞藻豐富的句子才能組成一篇好文章。

例如學生在寫摘要時常常第一句就是:The story talks about friendship. 這樣的句子提供的資訊太少,也顯得學生沒有抓到文章的重點,以下的小訣竅可以幫助學生寫出更有程度的句子!

1. prepositional phrase (介系詞片語):The story talked about the friendship between a little girl and a stray cat

2. adjective phrase (形容詞片語):The story talked about the friendship remembered by a little girl

3. adjective clause (形容詞子句):The story talked about the friendship that a little girl cherished.

4. appositive phrase (同位語):The story, Mary and the Cat, talked about friendship. 

5. compound sentence:The story talked about friendship, and it is also an exciting adventure of  a little girl and a stray cat.  

6. complex sentence :The story talked about friendship, while it is some unusual friendship between a little girl and a stray cat.  

上面六種方法還可以一起用變成更厲害的句子,例如1.+4.:The story, Mary and the Cat, talked about the friendship between a little girl and a stray cat.

同學們也可以用這種方法修改自己的作文,讓自己的文句更有變化,更豐富!
