【DSE 英文】DSE Speaking Tips – Improve your fluency

In the examiners reports, good fluency is described as rarely repeated oneself or having to correct mistakes, and only hesitating to think of ideas

In this video, here are some tips to help you to be more fluent:

  • Use cohesive features
  • Avoid long pauses

 

DSE 英文 Speaking – Improve your fluency by using cohesive features (利用適當的連接詞)

Cohesive features join sentences together. If you don’t use cohesive features, it can sound like you’re just listing ideas which aren’t connected.

Can household chores help you keep fit? (mediocre answer)

I don’t think you get much better exercise when you’re cleaning. You have to be flexible. You’re cleaning places that are high up and low down. Your body has to be flexible and active. Keeping the house clean requires hard work. If there are difficult stains, you have to work hard to clean them. Cleaning takes a long time. You can’t clean your house in fifteen minutes. Cleaning is a good way to keep fit.

Can household chores help you keep fit? (better connected answer)

Well, I have to say that I don’t think you can get much better exercise than where you’re cleaning. Firstly, you have to be really flexible, because you’re cleaning places that are high up and also low down on the ground. So as you can see, your body has to be flexible in that respect, which is good for keeping active. As well as flexibility, keeping the house clean requires hard work. For example, if there’s a difficult stain, you have to work physically hard to get rid of it. Other than that, cleaning also takes a really long time. If you’re talking about cleaning a whole house, it can take a whole afternoon! So the fact that you have to be flexible, work hard, and spend a long time on the activity makes me think that cleaning is a really good way to stay healthy and keep fit.

DSE 英文 Speaking – Improve your fluency by avoiding long pauses (減短停頓時間)

In the examiners reports, it says that students should avoid long pauses. It is better to find an imperfect word than to have a long silence while you try to think of the best word. Compare these extracts from a student’s answer:

          Apart from health benefits, why should people exercise?

Exercise helps you learn skills like […………] erm [………..] oh, perseverance.

Exercise helps you learn skills like […] erm, being able to stay with a difficult task.

【DSE 英文】DSE Speaking Tips – Expanding your answer I

Your answer will be in the form of a persuasive argument. You need to give your opinion, then give reasons and examples to support your opinion.

This is how you should try to expand your answer if you struggle to talk for a full minute.

You need to give a reason, then develop it with more arguments and examples.

DSE 英文 Speaking – Expanding your answers I

Developing your reasons

As I’ve said in a previous lessons in this course, you need to have a clear structure to your answer. The structure includes two reasons for your opinion, with each reason lasting 20 seconds.

This means you need around 2 sentences for each reason.

Listen to this example answer. What is the problem with it?

DSE 英文 Speaking – Expanding your answer I (反面教材)

Do you think watching videos on Youtube is a good way to learn English?

Yes, I do think that watching videos on Youtube is an effective way to learn English. You can decide to watch the videos that interest you. You can do it in your spare time. Videos are sometimes funny. You can also choose videos that will help you with things you find hard. Videos are popular with young people. This is why watching videos on Youtube is a good way to learn English.

  • It is very repetitive in terms of sentence structures.
  • Importantly, it just lists ideas one after another.
  • This is why the answer is too short, because the student has run out of ideas.

 

DSE 英文 Speaking – Expanding your answer I (學生應該這樣擴充自己的答案)

Here is what the student should have done instead. Pick two arguments/reasons for your opinion, then think about how you can expand on and develop each one. Perhaps you can provide an example. Here is a better answer.

Do you think watching videos on Youtube is a good way to learn English?

Learning English through videos on Youtube is becoming increasingly popular among students, and I truly believe that they are an effective means of improving one’s English.

One of the benefits of learning English through videos is that Youtube videos are designed to be entertaining. I have recently been watching a Youtube channel which teaches English through funny sketches and examples that are relevant to young people like me. This makes me want to listen to and learn from the videos.

Secondly, watching videos to learn English is an effective way to gain exposure to native English speakers. By listening to native speakers, we can learn important elements of English that are difficult to gain from other learners, such as the rhythm and tones of spoken English, and idioms that are in common usage.

Watching videos on Youtube may not be the most traditional way to learn this language, but it is certainly powerful as a supplement to classroom learning.

  • In this answer, I’ve chosen two points (videos being entertaining, and a way to hear native English speakesr), then developed them, instead of just listing all the reasons I can think of.
  • For the first reason, I’ve given an example from my personal experience to support the reason.
  • For the second reason, I’ve expanded on my reason, explaining why it is important to hear native speakers.

【DSE 英文】DSE Speaking Tips – Improve your Vocabulary II

Having a wide vocabulary is a good way to improve your marks. This video has some more tips about how you can do this.

This lesson is about:

  • Using adverbs;
  • Using superlatives.

 

DSE 英文 Speaking – Improve your vocabulary 

By using adverbs

Using adverbs to qualify your verbs is an easy way to make your answer sound like you have a wide vocabulary. A good way to do this is to use adverbs when giving your opinion. Listen to these examples.

I honestly think that young people care more about heritage perservation than the older generation.

I truly believe that it would be devastating to destroy heritage buildings.

I particularly appreciate historical sites from the Chinese tradition, as they are very beautiful.

I certainly think that we should prioritise the preservation of historical sites over the building of new homes.

DSE 英文 Speaking – Improve your vocabulary II

By using superlatives

Superlatives are another way to make your answer interesting, and to show off your wide knowledge of vocabulary and grammatical structures. Here are some examples of where you could fit superlatives into your answers.

1. How could the media be used to publicize the dangers faced by the Chinese white dolphin?

The media is probably the most powerful tool to educate the public.

 

2.  Should teenagers be given pocket money or have to earn it?

In my personal opinion, learning how to manage money is the most important skill that teenagers have to master before becoming an adult.

 

3. Have you ever been to a bad restaurant?

Yes, last week I went to a restaurant with my family, and it was the worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had.

 

4. Do you think that students’ English proficiency would improve by using songs?

In my limited experience, using songs is actually the least effective way to learn a language.
