  • Hello everyone. My name is Emma, and in today's lesson we are going to look at ways to give

    哈囉,大家好!我的名字是 Emma ,在今天的課程中,我們要談的是如何

  • your opinion. So this video is very useful for anyone who will be writing the IELTS exam,

    表達自己的意見。這部影片對於任何將要應試雅思測驗、

  • the TOEFL exam, as well as anyone who wants to become a better speaker or a better writer.

    或是要考托福、或是任何一位想讓談話更流暢或寫作功力更好的人,都非常實用

  • Okay, so in this video we will first look at some common expressions we use to give

    好的,所以在這部影片中,我們會先看一些較常見的表達意見的方式,

  • our opinion, and we will look at ways to strengthen these expressions to make them stronger and

    接著,我們會看到該如何加強這些表達的語氣,讓我們的措辭更強而有力

  • to show that we feel very strongly or not so strong about something.

    地來表達出我們對某些事物較強烈或不強烈的感受

  • Okay, so let's begin. I have here the most common way to give your opinion: "I think..."

    好的,那麼我們開始吧。這裡寫的是,你用來表達意見最常見的方式:「我覺得...」

  • So why do I have an "x" here? Well the problem is students overuse "I think..." "I think

    為什麼我在這裡畫一個「x」呢?問題出在於,學生們太常使用"I think..."「我覺得這個,

  • this, I think that, I think this, I think that." It gets very boring. And so if you're

    我覺得那個,我覺得這個,我覺得那個。」這會讓表達顯得很無趣。所以,如果你要應考

  • doing the TOEFL or the IELTS, the problem with using "I think..." is you're going to

    托福或是雅思,使用 "I think..." 的問題在於,你會得到較低的分數

  • get a lower mark because that's considered basic English usage. So in order to get a

    因為這被認為是最基本的英文用法。因此,為了要得到

  • higher mark or if you're just interested in becoming a better speaker or writer, I've

    較高的分數,或如果你只是對於成為一個更好的演講者或筆者有興趣的話,

  • listed some expressions that will really help aid you in expressing your opinion. So let's

    我已經列出了一些表達方式,這些可以真正的在你想表達自己的意見時,幫助到你。那麼

  • look at some other expressions you can use. And these all pretty much mean "I think..."

    我們就來看些其他你所能用的措辭吧!而這些全都代表著「我覺得...」

  • So the first expression: "As far as I'm concerned," okay? "As far as I'm concerned,...". Okay,

    第一是: "As far as I'm concerned," 可以嗎? "As far as I'm concerned,...",好的,

  • one question you often get on IELTS, on TOEFL is: "Should boys and girls go to the same

    你時常在雅思測驗或托福測驗中,會得到的一個問題是:「男孩和女孩應該同校一起相處,

  • school or should they go to different schools?" What I could say or I could write: "As far

    還是他們應該被分開,各自去念男校及女校?」我可以說或可以寫的是:「就我而言,

  • as I'm concerned, boys and girls should go to separate schools." Okay? One thing that's

    男孩和女孩應該去不同的學校。」好的,一個你必須知道的重要事情是:

  • important to note: there's a comma. "As far as I'm concerned," and then you write your

    這裡有個逗號,"As far as I'm concerned," 接著你接上你的

  • opinion. Okay? Our next expression: "In my opinion,..." This

    意見,好嗎?我們的下一個是:"In my opinion,..." 這比

  • is better than "I think" -- it's still a bit overused though. So I would recommend using

    "I think" 還要好一些...雖然這也有點太常被使用了。所以,我會比較

  • some of these other expressions. But "In my opinion,..." is still okay to use, just don't

    推薦用這些其他的句型。但是, "In my opinion,..." 還是可以拿來用,只是不要

  • use it too often. "In my opinion, in my opinion," -- I guess if we use the same example as before

    太常使用,「據我看來,據我看來」...我猜如果我們用和先前一樣的例子...

  • --, "boys and girls should go to separate schools." Okay?

    「男孩和女孩應該要分開去不同的學校」可以嗎?

  • Our next expression, again, it means the same thing as "I think...", it's just a nicer way

    下一個措辭,一樣的,它的意思也是「我覺得...」,這只是比較

  • to say it. I've given you two options. You can say: "It seems to me that..." or "It appears

    友善的說法,我給了你兩個選擇。你可以說: "It seems to me that..." 或 "It appears

  • to me that..." These are excellent to use in writing. So if you're doing the TOEFL essay

    to me that..." 這在寫作中非常的好用,所以,如果你在寫托福的短文

  • where you give your opinion on something, agree or disagree essay, or the IELTS essay

    當你需要給出你的意見,同意或不同意的短文;或是在寫雅思的短文時,

  • this is a good one to use. One question that's often asked in the TOEFL

    這都是很好用的一種寫法,一個托福常見的問題

  • and I think also the IELTS: "Do parents make the best teachers? Do you agree or disagree?"

    我想雅思應該也是:「家長是最好的老師嗎?你同意或是不同意?」

  • So I could say: "It seems to me that parents do make the best teachers.", "It seems to

    我可以說:「在我看來,家長是最好的老師。」、「在我看來,

  • me that parents do not make the best teachers." Notice one other thing about this expression,

    家長並非最好的老師。」注意一下這個句型的一個差異

  • whereas we have a comma here and here, "It seems to me that..." there's no comma. Okay?

    儘管我們這裡和這裡都有一個逗號,"It seems to me that..." 這裡是沒有逗號的。可以嗎?

  • So any time we have "that", you don't have to worry about a comma.

    因此,只要我們有"that" ,你就不需要擔心是否要有逗號

  • Okay, our next expression: "I would argue that..." So again, we have "that", no comma.

    好的,我們的下一個是:"I would argue that..." 一樣的,我們有"that",所以不用逗號

  • "I would argue that the death penalty is not a good form of punishment." Often times, the

    「我認為死刑並不是一個好的懲罰方式。」時常,托福測驗

  • TOEFL may ask you if you agree or disagree with the death penalty. You could use: "I

    會問你,你是否同意死刑,你可以說:「我認為

  • would argue that the death penalty is the best way to deal with criminals." So it all

    死刑是處理罪犯們最好的一個方式。」這都

  • depends on your opinion, but you can either agree or disagree with this statement.

    倚賴於你的想法,但你可以同意或不同意這段陳述的說法

  • Another way to say "I think...": "From my point of view," or "From my perspective,"

    另一種說「我覺得...」的方式: "From my point of view," 或是 "From my perspective,"

  • Okay? Notice we have a comma for both of these. "From my point of view," okay, so now I'm

    可以嗎?注意這兩句都有逗號。「根據我的觀點,」好的,這次

  • not going to use an IELTS or TOEFL example, I'm going to use a superhero example. "From

    我不用雅思或托福測驗的例子,我要用超級英雄的例子。

  • my point of view, Cyclops is a horrible superhero." So again, just for anyone who likes to argue,

    「根據我的觀點,獨眼巨人是一個非常糟糕的英雄。」再一次的,對於任何想表達意見的人

  • this is a good one to use. The last one is a very high formal way of

    這是一個很好的選擇,最後一個,是一個非常正式的方法

  • saying your opinion. "I am inclined to believe that..." So you wouldn't use this with your

    來訴說你的意見。"I am inclined to believe that..." 你不會對你的朋友們

  • friends. If you have an argument with your friends, maybe you're talking about the best

    用上這句話,如果你和你的朋友們在爭論,或是你們在說

  • place to live in the world or the best place to travel to, if you said: "I'm inclined to

    世界上最棒的居住地點,或最棒的旅行地,如果你說:「我傾向於

  • believe that France is a great place to visit." Your friends would find your language too

    相信法國是最棒的造訪地。」你的朋友們會覺得你用的詞語太過於正式了

  • formal. But you can use this in writing, in formal writing. If you're writing the TOEFL

    但你可以將這用在寫作上,在正式的寫作文章上,如果你是在寫托福

  • or the IELTS, you can use this expression. And again, at the end we have "that", we don't

    或雅思的測驗,你就可以用這個,同樣的,在最後面有"that" 這個字,因此並不需要

  • have a comma. Okay? So be aware that if you use any of these expressions with "that",

    逗號,可以嗎?所以,要注意,如果你用的是有 "that" 這個字的句型

  • when you write them you do not need a comma whereas for the other ones that don't have

    當你在寫作時,你不需要加上逗號,反之,如果是其餘沒有 "that"的那些

  • "that", use a comma and then write if you agree, or disagree, or what you think.

    加上逗號,並接著寫你是同意、不同意、或是其他的想法

  • Okay, so now we're going to look at some commonly spoken expressions. These were written expressions

    好的,現在,我們要去看一些常用的口語表達方式,這些是寫作用的

  • -- or you can speak them --, now we're just going to look at some spoken expressions.

    或你也可以用說的,現在我們要去看一些口語上的表達方式

  • Okay, so in the IELTS there is a speaking section where you talk to an examiner and

    好的,所以在雅思測驗中,有一個口說的部份,你需要和主考官說話

  • what they're looking for is normal language use. So they want you to use everyday language,

    他們在這部分注重的是正常的言語表達方式,因此,當你在說明或給予你自己的意見時,他們會希望你用日常生活中會用到的字詞、

  • everyday expressions when you speak and give your opinion. They don't really want you to

    日常生活中會用的表達方式,他們並不想要你用

  • use very high academic, high level, pompous language; I don't know a better way to put

    非常學術、高等、華麗的詞語,我不知道該怎麼更好的來描述這個

  • it. They don't want you to use complicated language. They want you to use everyday language

    他們不想要你用太過複雜的方式來陳述,當你和主考官對話時,

  • when you talk to the examiner. So I have here four expressions. So whether

    他們想要你用日常的會話,我這裡有四種表達方式,不管

  • you want to improve your speaking and become a better conversationalist with your friends

    你是想要增進你的口說,並和你的朋友們成為一位更好的談話者

  • or do well on the IELTS speaking section, these four expressions are really good for

    或你是想在雅思的口說測驗上得高分;當你用這四種表達方式

  • giving your opinion when you say it, not when you write it.

    都會讓你訴說自己的意見時,變得更為流暢,但不是用來寫作時用的

  • So the first one I have: "If you ask me, _______." "If you ask me,

    第一個是:"If you ask me, _______."「如果你問我,

  • Star Trek is better than Star Wars." Now of course that's not an academic example; they

    《星艦迷航記》會比《星際大戰》還要好。」當然的,這不是一個學術類的例子,他們

  • would never ask anything like that on the IELTS. They'd probably ask you: "Do you think

    不會在雅思測驗上問像這樣的問題,他們可能會問你:「你覺得

  • books are better than movies?" Or "Do you think living in a city is better than living in a town?"

    書本會比電影還要好嗎?」或「你覺得住在城市裡,會比住在小鎮中要好嗎?」

  • Another way to give your opinion: "To be honest, _______."

    另一種說明你的意見的方式是:"To be honest, _______."

  • -"To be honest, I think living in a city is better than living in a small town."

    「老實說,我覺得住在城市比住在小鎮中好。」

  • -"Personally speaking, I think city life has more to offer than country life."

    「就個人來說,我覺得城市生活比鄉村生活來的有趣。」

  • -"From what I gather, people enjoy living in a city more than they enjoy living in the

    「我的推測為,和住在鄉村比起來,人們較享受居住在城市中。」

  • country." Okay? So these are all just spoken ways to

    可以嗎?這些全都是用說的方式

  • give your opinion.

    來給予出你自己的意見

  • Okay, another way to score high on both the TOEFL and the IELTS, this has to do with both

    好的,另一種讓你在托福和雅思中都可以獲得高分的方式,這可以用在

  • the written section and the speaking section, is to show contrast with other people's opinions.

    寫作方面,也可以用在口說方面;就是與其他人的意見形成對比

  • Okay? So instead of just saying: "I think that this is good because...", "I think that

    可以嗎?所以,與其只說:「我覺得這很好,因為...」或「我覺得這很糟糕,

  • is horrible because..." A better thing to do is contrast your opinion with other people's

    因為...」一種更好的方式是:將你自己的意見,與那些你不同意的人的意見

  • opinions who you disagree with. So you may say something like: "Some people may disagree

    形成對比。你或許會說:「有些人可能不同意我的想法,

  • with me, but as far as I'm concerned... As far as I'm concerned..." --what's a good example?

    但就我而言...就我而言...」有什麼好的例子呢?

  • -- "Travelling by car is better than travelling by airplane." Okay?

    「開車旅遊比搭飛機旅遊還要好。」可以嗎?

  • And when you contrast, words that they'll be looking for that will help boost your mark:

    當你陳述出對比時,他們會去尋找能幫助你強調你的不同的詞語:

  • "although", "even though". So these are contrast words that can really help you in writing.

    「雖然」、「即使」。這些對比詞可以在寫作中幫你很多

  • So you could say: "Although some people may disagree with me," -- you get rid of the "but"

    你可以說:「雖然有些人可能不同意我的看法,」–如果你用了這兩個字中的一個,

  • if you use one of these two words. -- "Although some people may disagree with me, as far as

    你要把 "but"(但是)去掉 –「雖然有些人可能不同意我的看法,就我而言

  • I'm concerned watching Lord of the Rings, all three episodes back-to-back is a bad idea.",

    看魔戒時,全部的三部曲連著看不是個好主意。」

  • "Even though some people may think that making a lot of money is great, I think that there

    「即使有些人會認為賺很多的錢很棒,但我覺得有其他

  • are other important things to life."

    對生活也很重要的事。」

  • So these are just various opinions. They ask you all sorts of different things on the IELTS

    這裡有很多不同的想法,雅思測驗和托福測驗會問你

  • and the TOEFL. But if you can use "although", "even though"... and it's two parts. So the

    各式各樣不同的東西,但如果你可以用「雖然」、「即使」...這裡有兩個部分,

  • first part is what other people think, comma if you're writing this, and then you have

    第一部分是其他人的想法,逗點,如果你在寫作的話,接著你可以接個

  • an opinion expression: "as far as I'm concerned...", "in my opinion...", "I believe..." and then

    意見表達用的用字:「就我而言...」、「據我來看...」、「我相信...」再接

  • you say what you think. So this will really help your IELTS or TOEFL mark.

    你自己的想法。這真的可以在雅思測驗及托福測驗的評分上幫你很多

  • So sometimes when you're asked your opinion, people want to know if you agree or disagree

    有時,當你被問到你自己的意見,大家想知道你是贊成或不贊成

  • with a statement, and they want to know: how much do you agree or disagree? So one question

    這個陳述時,他們也想知道:你多贊成,或多不贊成?因此,一個你

  • you will often see on IELTS or TOEFL, they'll say a statement, so for example: "Do you think

    常常在雅思或托福測驗上見到的問題是,他們會說出一個陳述,例如:「你覺得

  • people with more money are more successful in life?", "To what extent..." -- or sorry,

    人越有錢,就代表人生越成功嗎?」、「在什麼程度上...」–或,抱歉,

  • they'll say: "People in life with more money are more successful." So they'll say a statement,

    他們會說:「人們越有錢人生越成功。」他們會說一個陳述

  • and then they'll ask: "To what extent do you agree or disagree with the following statement?"

    然後他們會問:「你同意或不同意這段對話到什麼程度?」

  • It's a very common essay question in both the TOEFL and IELTS.

    這是在托福測驗和雅思測驗都非常常見的短文問題

  • So what we're going to look at now is: how can we add a degree to our answer for our

    那麼,我們現在要接著看的是:我們該怎麼將程度加到我們的回答上,

  • opinion? Okay? So where you see the blue: "somewhat", "partially", "I suppose I _______",

    來表達我們的意見呢?好的。在你看到標示藍色的地方:"somewhat"、 "partially"、 "I suppose I _______"

  • I'll go over those in a minute, but these are all ways to say: "Uh, I kind of agree."

    我等等會馬上說到這些,但這些都是在說明:「嗯,我很同意。」

  • So you're not strong in what you're saying; you're kind of on the fence. Whereas if you

    你對於你所說的,沒有太強烈的語氣;你是站在中立的地方,然而,如果你

  • see this red line: "I am confident that...", "absolutely", "totally", "strongly", "completely",

    看到紅線的地方: "I am confident that..."、 "absolutely"、 "totally"、 "strongly"、 "completely"

  • this section is when you're very sure of your opinion; you feel very strongly about something.

    這個部分是,當你非常確定你的想法;你對某事物有非常強烈的觀感時用的

  • Okay? So let me give you some examples. So the example I just gave: "People with more

    可以嗎?讓我給你個例子,這是我剛剛才給的:「人越有錢代表

  • money are more successful. Do you agree or disagree, and to what extent do you agree

    越成功。你同意或不同意這個說法,並說明同意或不同意的

  • or disagree?" So what I could say is: "I somewhat agree." Meaning not 100%, but I agree a little

    程度。」我可以說:「我有點同意。」代表著,不是 100% ,但我有一點點同意;

  • bit; I somewhat agree. "I partially agree." Could also say: "I suppose I agree with that

    我有點同意,「我部份同意。」也可以說:「我想我同意這個

  • statement." "I suppose I agree that people with more money are more successful." But

    主旨。」「我想我同意:人越有錢代表越成功這句話。」但

  • again, this shows you're not 100% sure.

    再重申一次,這代表你不是 100% 同意

  • Whereas if I say: "I am confident that people with more money are more successful." It means

    然而,如果我說:「我相信人越有錢代表越成功。」這代表

  • you're sure. "I absolutely agree that people with more money are more successful." In this

    你很確定,「我完全同意,人越有錢代表越成功這句話。」

  • case, with "absolutely", you probably wouldn't write this, but this is a good thing to say

    在這種情況下,加上"absolutely",你可能不會這麼寫,但這對

  • to maybe an IELTS speaker. Same with "totally" -- it's not formal English, you wouldn't use

    雅思的測驗來說,是個很好的說話方式,和 "totally" 一樣,這不是正式英語,你不會將這個

  • this in an essay, but in speech you might say: "I totally agree with that statement."

    用在短文裡,但在演說中,你可能會說:「我完全同意這個說法。」

  • "Strongly" can be used in an essay. "I strongly agree that teachers are very important to

    "Strongly" 這個字可以用在短文中,「我非常的同意:老師們對於

  • the education system." "Completely", again, like "totally" and "absolutely" is... you

    教育機制來說非常的重要,這個說法。」"Completely",一樣的,意近於 "totally" 和 "absolutely"是...

  • wouldn't use it in academic writing so much. You would use it in speech if in the IELTS

    你不會在學術寫作中用到,你會在演說中用到它,如果在雅思測驗中

  • exam somebody asked you your opinion, you might use "completely", "totally", or "absolutely".

    有人想你詢問你的意見,你或許會用"completely" 、"totally"或 "absolutely"

  • So the reason I'm telling you that these are good... you can get higher marks on both the

    我會告訴你這用詞很好是因為...如果你將它們加在你的意見上,陳述程度的話

  • TOEFL and the IELTS if you add a degree to your opinion. So instead of just saying: "I

    就可以幫助在托福和雅思測驗上得高分,所以,與其只說:「我

  • think..." it's good to use one of the expressions I taught you. "As far as I'm concerned,",

    覺得...」可以用我教你的句型中的任一種的話,會更好, 「就我而言,」、

  • "If you ask me," these are all great expressions, as well as it's good to give a degree to the
