通過正確理解英文單字的意思、義意等。如：second 是“秒”，它來源於古代的六分法，分，秒，它是二次劃分，因此second 也是“第二”，進一步引申，還可理解為“輔助”用這種方法特別適合那些一詞多義的詞。
1)英漢比較如：mama, cigar, beer, bar, fee等。
2)單複數的比較如：good-goods , spirit-spirits wood-woods

11. A friend you admire
I want to talk about one of my playmates in my childhood. Her name is Su. She ’ s very beautiful. She had long black hair and big eyes. She looked like a Barbie doll.
However her personality was very different from her appearance. I like her because of her strong personality and her kindness to others. She never cried even when she hurt her knees badly and would always help and comfort others just like a big sister.
I always knew she ’ s a strong girl, but later I realized that she ’ s stronger than I thought. When we were in primary school, one day, my teacher asked her out and told her that her father died in a car accident. She came back to our classroom to get her school bag without crying. When I went to her home to ensure she was ok, I saw her comforting her mother. She was like an adult, still without crying.
Later she went to Canada and we haven ’ t seen each other for about five years. I can still her beautiful appearance and her strong personality. When I feel discouraged, I will always remember her and I can become strong because of her influence.
10. A family but not yours
I ’ d like to talk about my uncle ’ s family. I think the life style in this family is very different from mine because as a big family, they can do many things together. It ’ s very different from my family; they have three children, two boys and one girl.
This is big family is always very lively. I ’ m the only child, so sometimes I feel lonely. But in this family, you will always hear the laughter and everyone will be influenced by their cheerfulness. They always do some outdoor activities. For example, they would have picnic on weekends and go mountain climbing at the nearby places. They sometimes go far away places for long trips. I admire them because when I look at their pictures, I could see how happy they are.
Usually I think it ’ s a good thing to be the only child because I could have my parents ’ full attention. However, sometimes, when I look at their family, I will feel it might be even better if I have brothers and sisters.
