I am sorry, all the forumers can help you with is use a few sentence that are more neutral.

To have words that fit in to your essay, it is possible. However, reading is the best way.

Anyway,

I would agree to this. Somehow I find that a reader can tell when the writer attempts to include something in his writing from a quote he obtained from somewhere out of context. It somehow disrupts the flow of the writing. One of the important points in writing is to ensure fluidity in it whereby a paragraph flows into another with consistency and integrity.

Anyway this view was something shared by Ronald Dworkin in his chain novel theory

You won't get anywhere memorizing a few 'beautiful' words or sentence. A word on it's own has no beauty same goes for a phrase. Its beauty is shown when it is used appropriately to write coherent essays.

I think, if that is how you aspire to ace the SPM English paper, you'd be better off memorizing whole essays and just changing the names or details to suit the question of the exam.

millionaire : spm english is easy to score A1.
yep. but for a typical guy like me . GCE-O is not so easy to score. tongue.gif
i can't give u a list of beautiful words. cos for essay. u must follow ur own style of writing and use ur own suitable words.
so i mean. u must go and find for urself. smile.gif
last time. i took 1 main topic. related to 1 main object. eg,family.
u never know wat question u might get. but u can make ur own main topic.
so eg. i took family. all about family.
so i search for words related to family. not just words. idioms too.
i even open up dictionary and start searching for god sake. tongue.gif
my english was dat bad and i was lucky enough to get GCE A2. XP
u could try. biggrin.gif

i dun agree with using crazy bombastic english with half of it french words. a fren of mine did so. and he actually bought a dictionary for that purpose.

eg of what he used:

de bon vivant was with the risque pest
faux pas

and many more, i can only remember that 2.

and it seemed that he was writing french more than english. the sentences dun sync with the words and his essay came out chaotic.

Hmm... you know what..

This is the shortcut I would give to you

Read ---> all Harry Potters series,
Read ---> Lord of The Ring trilogy
Read ---> Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
Read ---> William Golding's Lord of Flies
Read ---> Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion
Read ---> Some Celtic or Greek mythology

hahah... some of the books are in Literature in English SPM.. its good for some light reading anyway.

Anyway, on first week I was in UKM, and I got into an English class and there's Oxford dictionary promotion and I got a free thesaurus from an Irish woman who seems to pleased that I know the word "Dreamcatcher" and buy the latest edition of Oxford's Learners English. Its very funny day for me anyway as I entered a wrong class and I befriended with a malay girl who love HYDE on that day... LOL

Buy a good thesaurus will do biggrin.gif

I recommend "Family Word Finder" published by Reader Digest.
I have been using it for 3 years and it's the best thesaurus I have ever used.
