Vocabulary Building 1

1.1 What is the importance to learn them ?

 Each composition usually should have its own topic 每篇文章都會有固定題目


 Therefore, the exposition always needs similar words to illustrate 所以經常要用上差
不多的字來描述
 Different words having the same / similar meaning can enrich your composition and
show off your vocabulary power to your teacher, and more importantly, your marker. 所
以用上差不多意思或相同意思的字能豐富你的文筆,把你的能力盡顯於你的老師,
甚至你將來公開考試的改卷員.
 You know, having rich vocabulary on a lot of topic is good. Nevertheless, having
lexicons in each topic is essential. 雖然,能夠在不同領域上都懂得不少詞語是好,但
是能夠更精於每一個範圍上的字群字橐更為重要.
