A taste of what you get-- the script
The release of the index in your latest article is a timely reminder, showing us that, while Hong Kong still flares well as a commercial and financial centre, we need to rethink whether we are taking good care of ourselves and those around us. Granted, economic development is the engine and cornerstone to the development to the rest of the society. Our obsession with it, however, has infested so many of us in such a way that, if not rectified, will soon be beyond redemption. What is our price to pay to obtain economic development?
A taste of what you get-- the comments
o Ideas like the importance of statutory regulation, ‘polluters pay’, the government’s role in sponsoring NGO initiatives, etc. shows good knowledge of social policies.
o The format and conventions of a letter to the editor, e.g. the phrase ‘I am writing in response to the article published in your newspaper with regards to…’ are correctly used.
Vocab and grammar
o Good use of a great variety of sophisticated vocabulary items, ‘meagre hand-to-mouth existence’
o Good use of expressions, e.g. ‘In the midst of a crisis lies opportunities.’ And ‘to cut the pie up’, ‘price to pay’, and ‘a hollow talk’
o Good use of a great variety of sophisticated grammatical patterns, e.g. ‘Our obsession with it, however, has infested so many of us in such a way that, if not rectified, will soon be beyond redemption. What is our price to pay to obtain economic development?’ (adverbial, adverb clause, if-condition, rhetorical question, alliteration) and ‘Our technology, however, is evolving at such a dramatic and unprecedented way so that employers should explore how they can utilize advanced technologies to reduce the need for humans to spend so much time at work.’ (adverbial, adverb clause, noun clause) and ‘Merely calling for people to use less plastic, however, may appear to be a hollow talk.’ (gerund as subject, adverbial)
Organization and coherence
o Each body paragraph starts with a succinct topic sentence and a concluding remark. Sometimes they serve as transition sentences, too, e.g. ‘It is not just the problem with our economy, Hong Kong’s environmental crisis also requires urgent attention.’ and ‘Thanks to our hardworking labour force, Hong Kong’s economy flares well.
o The mix of caution and optimism is a theme that is echoed in the beginning, ending and throughout the letter.
