Advantage/disadvantage 写作的开头不再愁!

今天,我们来看看另外一种表达观点的方式。有时候我们碰到一些题目要求,比如说“Do you think the disadvantages outweigh the advantages?”,“Do you think it is positive or negative development?”或者有些特殊的“Do you agree or disagree?”,那么在表明自己观点的时候,我们要注意什么?




一般来说,这种文章都需要大家既谈到优点,也谈到缺点;但是必须要说明到底是哪个更加突出。在表达观点时,我们要注意相应的表达方式为“让步式”。如:



There are social,medical and technical problems associated with the use of mobile phones. Whatforms do they take? Do you agree that the problems outweigh the benefits ofmobile phones?


Intro:

Mobile phones are frequently used in almost all aspects of our daily life. However, a variety of potential problems including social, medical and technical ones arise, which far outweigh the benefits they bring to people.




在上面的例子中,我们可以看到使用的表达方式是非限制性定语从句,观点非常的鲜明,而又兼顾优缺点。这可以给我们什么样的启示呢?

再看一个例子:


Somepeople think the main purpose of schools is to turn the children into goodcitizens and workers, rather than to benefit them as individuals. To whatextent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?


Intro:

School’s function is an issue that never fails to fascinate public attention. Although it is believed that it should focus on turning the young students into citizensand individuals that can do good to the society, its benefits to students themselves should be equally stressed.



在这个例子中,最后一句使用了让步状语从句,这是和“让步式”观点表达方式最契合的句式。很明显,该句式能够将句子的长度极大限度的提高,而且从结构上说,它能起到引导下文的重要作用。

试一下:


More and more people work from home and study from home with the development ofcomputer technology. Do you think it is positive or negative development?
