這些字你都學過,但為什麼就是看不懂

在英文裡,很多的單字是同時具有名詞與動詞功能,當這些字夾雜在一大段的文字裡面,明明每個字都認得,可是放在一起就是看不懂。這個狀況就是因為你不知道這個字還另外一個意思。當名詞作為動詞使用時,通常有兩個主要目的。第一,敘述簡潔。第二,意思精準。單字量達到一定程度時,進步的速度會趨緩,不妨用已經學會單字,重新用不同詞性找出第二層意思,讓你的表達的更像英文native speaker。

  • 1. water

名詞:水 I drink lots of mineral water. 我喝很多礦泉 … …

字、句、段策略

句子是動詞的心臟,每一個動詞都是一個點,每一句用對動詞的句子是一條線,而每一條動詞線編織的故事就是動詞面。商務寫作最重精準表達,試著先把你的想法用一個動詞表達,有了動詞,就能很快速抓到主詞與受詞,寫出關鍵句,同樣的方式多做幾次,你的文章就從只有一個字進展成關鍵的段落,這就是「字」、「句」、「段」的思考方式。

 

 

例如:

 Word 字 

increase 

 Sentence 句 

Our local Taiwanese microchip suppliers recently increased their prices.

 Paragraph 段 

As you know, the economy in Taiwan is not doing very well at the moment. In response to the poor economic conditions, all of our local Taiwanese microchip suppliers recently increased their prices by 15% to 25% without notifying us in advance and without giving us any reasonable justifications.

例如:

 Word 字 

expand

 Sentence 句 

We need to figure out whether our company should start doing business in Guangdong in order to expand our network of suppliers.

 Paragraph 段 

We need to figure out whether our company should start doing business in Guangdong in order to expand our network of suppliers. I think it is very clear that we can no longer stay with our local suppliers in Taiwan. For our business to be successful, we cannot continue to rely on them. Instead, we need to find foreign suppliers in Guangdong, China.

有了以上3種構思的策略,我們正式來寫一篇商務企畫書吧!

Short Business Proposal

July 14, 2017

Subject: Business Proposal

Dear George,

As you know, the economy in Taiwan is not doing very well at the moment. In response to the poor economic conditions, all of our local Taiwanese microchip suppliers recently increased their prices by 15% to 25% without notifying us in advance and without giving us any reasonable justification.

As we mentioned during our meeting on Monday, we need to figure out whether our company should start doing business in Guangdong in order to expand our network of suppliers. I think it is very clear that we can no longer stay with our local suppliers in Taiwan. For our business to be successful, we cannot continue to rely on them. Instead, we need to find foreign suppliers in Guangdong, China.

I have started looking into potential suppliers online and I have made a list of suppliers that can meet our high standards for quality. I think the best way for us to find out if these suppliers can actually make and deliver products to our satisfaction is for Peter, John, Paul, and I to visit their factories in Shenzhen and test samples there during the last two weeks of July (July 17th to July 31st).

I am confident that the four of us can find and create long-term, win-win relationships with a few reliable suppliers and negotiate a price that is cheaper than what our current local Taiwanese suppliers gave us before their price increase.

As always, thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

Jack

古典音樂也可以打擊犯罪?
Tottenham向來是倫敦治安比較不佳的區域之一,曾爆發過幾次嚴重的暴力衝突事件,甚至還有警察受到傷害,當局有決心要改變這樣的情況,而在公共區域播放古典樂,或許就是答案。
