Alternatives for “good”
“I have a rewarding job.”
“My career has been satisfying for several reasons.”
“My time in Sydney has been rewarding.”
下面讓咱們來看看在實戰中 good 的替換詞是怎么用的：
考官： Do you prefer to work for a large or small company?
考生：“It is for this reason that I feel working for a large company is more satisfying than working for a small company.”
中國學生往往說的是：......that's why working for a large company is better than a small company.
好吧，也許說的太高大上了，很多同學真的是這么說的：Ithink working for a large company is good. 連比較級都沒有用上。
這個單詞中國學生在出國前其實并不常見，但是出國以后你會發現，在學霸的證書上經常會出現這個次，表示優點和榮譽的意思。 在碩士畢業證上如果寫著 master with merit 就表示這個人拿到的是優等碩士生。
同時，這個詞也可以作為 good 的替換詞來使用，瞬間就覺得高大上了呢。
寫作時也可使用：Some people believe that diet and exercise in a population are largely the responsibility of the government. Others feel people should…
考生：“Thus, the argument that governments should be responsible for the diets and exercise levels of citizens holds merit.”
考官： At what time of the day are you most productive?
考生：“My optimal work time is in the morning. It is when my mind is clearest and I can…”
寫作時也可使用： Pie charts comparing the diets of older men in varying states of health.
“The second pie chart illustrates optimal weightings of fat, carbohydrates and protein for men aged 50 and older.”
Alternatives for “faster/slower”
這個單詞說出來就很酷炫對不?這是個動詞，相比于 be動詞+faster/slower 這種形式 就會讓考官覺得你的詞匯量很大~
“The clubs I joined at university accelerated my studies.”
“Careers in high tech are typically accelerated in my hometown as many young people engage internships at the nearby tech park.”
例如小作文圖表題： “Growth of laptop sales accelerated between 2002 and 2004.”
大作文也可能會用得到：Young people learn more and at an accelerated speed through the use of technology.
舉個例子：“For example, libraries that do not electronically index their resources retard the rate at which a student can access information.”
Alternatives for important/unimportant
考生：“The wedding planner we hired was a key individual for three reasons. Firstly, he was able to…”
考官：How do you define a “hero”?
考生：“I think integrity, kindness and honesty are key. To me, a hero is someone that does the right thing even when no one is looking.”
寫作中同樣會用到 “A key feature of the diagram is the pause that occurs between the first and second halves of the paper making process.”
7chiefly 主要; 首先
當你們要表達 “主要，基本”這個意思的時候你們脫口而出的是哪一個單詞呢?basically? mainly? 還是firstly? 98%的同學基本上就只會用這兩個單詞吧，如果是寫作的話 basically 還會出現拼寫錯誤。。。
考官： (In response to a Part 2 monologue about an important person in your country.) What do you think ___ will be most remembered for?
考生： “I think ___ will be chiefly remembered for his contributions to science…”
寫作中也同樣可以用到：“For example, it has long been established that carbon dioxide emissions are chiefly responsible for global warming.”
8trivial 瑣碎的，無價值的; 平常的
最后，表否定的 unimportant 替換詞來啦! 當大部分考生還在用 “not important”或者 normal做否定表達的時候，你用一個trivial， 是不是就瞬間比別人高了不止一個檔次了呢?
考官： How central was the Internet to your studies at university?
考生：“To be honest, the role it played was quite trivial. I found the vast amount of my studying was done using the traditional resources found at the university library.”
寫作中如果遇到這樣的問題： A pie chart comparing the impact various human activities have on the death rates of forest fauna.
你可以這樣寫：“Although pesticides account for 43% of all fauna death rates, mortalities due to human activities at campsites reveal the comparatively trivial figure of 0.01%.”
