考官说:记下这128个单词,别再用“very”了,我快崩溃了……

very good, very beautiful, very... 我们最爱用的就是very啦,好像句子里不加个very就不能表达强烈的语气和真挚的情感。

可你知不知到,考官看到听到你写作口语中不停出现的"very"时内心有多崩溃……very这个词很可能会暴露你的懒惰和词汇量的贫乏,很多作家都曾经吐槽过↓


Mark Twain:Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.

马克·吐温:每次想要用very的时候就用damn代替吧;你的编辑会直接帮你删掉它,这样文章才是它该有的样子。

Florence King: 'Very' is the most useless word in the English language and can always come out. More than useless, it is treacherous because it invariably weakens what it is intended to strengthen.

弗罗伦斯·金:very是英文中最没用的单词,但又总是会出现。比起无用,它简直就是个隐患,因为它总会削弱你想强调的那个词。


要知道词汇可是雅思评分中很重要的一项~想要让你的形容词升级表达更强烈的感情,不用 very 也能做到,来和考官秀一发词汇量吧~
