一、避免使用語意弱的“be”動詞。

 

1、把句中的表語轉換為不同的修飾語。

 

這個技巧并不是那么容易掌握,但是確實是一個能夠提高雅思寫組成績的非常實用的技巧。

 

例如:

 

Weak:The trees are bare. The grass is brown. The landscape seems drab.

 

Revision:The brown grass and bare trees form a drab landscape. (轉換為前置定語)

 

Or:The landscape, bare and brown, begged for spring green. (轉換為并列結構作后置定語)

 

2、將作表語用的形容詞或名詞變為行為動詞。

 

例如:

 

1) Weak:The team members are good players.

 

Revision:The team members play well.

 

2) Weak:One worker's plan is the elimination of tardiness.

 

Revision:One worker's plan eliminates tardiness.

 

3、在以“here”或“there”開頭的句子中,把“be”動詞后的名詞代詞變成改寫句的主語。

 

例如:

 

1) Weak:There is no opportunity for promotion.

 

Revision:No opportunity for promotion exists.

 

2) Weak:Here are the books you ordered.

 

Revision:The books you ordered have arrived.

 

二、多用語意具體的動詞,保持句意簡潔明了。

 

這樣的具體描寫可以讓文章看起來更具說服力,當然也就可以提高雅思寫作成績了。

 

例如:

 

1、Poor:My supervisor went past my desk.

 

Better:My supervisor sauntered (=walked slowly) past my desk.

 

2、Poor:She is a careful shopper.

 

Better:She compares prices and quality.

 

三、盡量運用主動語態。

 

之所以要這樣做,是因為很多人不明白什么時候該用主動,什么時候該用被動。用錯了,當然也就談不上提高雅思寫作成績了。

 

例如:

 

1、Weak:The organization has been supported by charity.

 

Better:Charity has supported the organization.

 

2、Weak:The biscuits were stacked on a plate.

 

Better:Mother stacked the biscuits on a plate.

 

四、防止使用語意冗長累贅的詞語。

 

想要提高雅思寫作成績就得使寫作的用詞簡單,生動。

 

例如:

 

1、Wordy:My little sister has a preference for chocolate milk.

 

Improved:My little sister prefers chocolate milk.

 

2、Wordy:We are in receipt of your letter and intend to follow your recommendations.

 

Improved:We have received your letter and intended to follow your recommendation.

 

3、Redundant:We had a serious crisis at school yesterday when our chemistry laboratory caught fire.

 

Improved:We had a crisis at school yesterday when our chemistry laboratory caught fire.

 

4、Redundant:My sister and I bought the same, identical dress in different stores.

 

Improved:My sister and I bought the same dress in different stores.

 

五、杜絕濫用陳舊詞語或難懂的專業術語。

 

這是語言考試,不是專業考試,提高雅思寫作成績的關鍵點在語言上,是文章的表現力上!

 

例如:

 

1、Weak:They will not agree to his proposals in any shape or form.

 

Improved:They will not agree to any of his proposals.

 

2、Weak:I need her financial input before I can guesstimate our expenditures next fall.

 

Improved:I need her financial figures before I can estimate our expenditures next fall.
