Alternatif Lain Dari Penggunaan Kata “Good” (Bagian 1)

Rekan-rekan IELTSJakarta.com mungkin sering mengalami kesulitan dalam hal vocabulary sehingga terjebak mengulangi kata yang sama pada saat menjelaskan sesuatu. Hal ini umum terjadi pada saat Speaking Test dan sangatlah penting untuk dihindari. Artikel ini akan memberikan beberapa pilihan lain untuk menggantikan kata “good” supaya dapat membantu dalam IELTS Test.

Excellent
Kata “excellent” digunakan untuk mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang sangat baik atau berkualitas tinggi. Hampir semua hal yang dapat diungkapkan dengan “good” dapat digantikan dengan “excellent”; biasanya tersirat penekanan bahwa hal tersebut tidak hanya baik, namun sangat baik. Jika ditanya “how are you”, dapat juga ditanggapi dengan “excellent”.

Wonderful
Wonderful” sama artinya dengan “great” atau “very good”. Berbagai hal dapat dideskripsikan dengan kata “wonderful”, termasuk orang, pengalaman, dan hal lainnya. Kata ini dapat digunakan baik dalam percakapan formal ataupun santai. Contoh penggunaannya: “She’s a wonderful person.”

Cool
Selain berarti dingin, kata “cool” juga dapat diartikan “very good” atau keren. Kata “cool” juga dapat digunakan untuk mengekspresikan persetujuan atas suatu usul, namun dalam konteks kekinian sehingga tidak terlalu cocok untuk percakapan yang terlalu formal. Misalnya, ketika diajak pergi menonton bioskop, bisa saja dijawab dengan “Cool! I’ll see you at 6pm”.

Perfect
Kata ini mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang tak bercela atau cocok/pas dengan yang dibutuhkan. Hari yang menyenangkan dapat disebut “perfect day”, atau sebuah restoran bersuasana romantis dapat disebut “perfect for couples”. Menyetujui ide yang diusulkan juga dapat mengatakan “that’s sounds perfect”.

Fantastic
Fantastic” digunakan untuk mendeskripsikan sesuatu yang sangat baik atau menyenangkan. Kata ini dapat digunakan dalam konteks formal dan informal; memiliki makna positif dan antusiasme, sehingga harus diucapkan dengan adanya penekanan atau seruan. Contohnya: “My trip to Bali was fantastic!”

COMPARISONS OF QUANTITY


To show difference: more, less, fewer + than
Examples:
With countable nouns: more / fewer
     Eloise has more children than Chantal.
     Chantal has fewer children than Eloise.
     There are fewer dogs in Cardiff than in Bristol
     I have visited fewer countries than my friend has.
     He has read fewer books than she has.

With uncountable nouns: more / less
     Eloise has more money than Chantal.
     Chantal has less money than Eloise.
     I spend less time on homework than you do.
     Cats drink less water than dogs.
     This new dictionary gives more information than the old one.

So, the rule is:
MORE + nouns that are countable or uncountable
FEWER + countable nouns
LESS + uncountable nouns

To show no difference: as much as , as many as, as few as, as little as
     as many as / as few as + countable nouns
     as much as / as little as + uncountable nouns

Examples:
With countable nouns:
     They have as many children as us.
     We have as many customers as them.
     Tom has as few books as Jane.
     There are as few houses in his village as in mine.
     You know as many people as I do.
     I have visited the States as many times as he has.

With uncountable nouns:
     John eats as much food as Peter.
     Jim has as little food as Sam.
     You've heard as much news as I have.
     He's had as much success as his brother has.
     They've got as little water as we have.

Idiomatic Expressions to Use in Speaking Test

When we use advanced vocabularies, it does not always mean that we use rarely used words, but we can make use of idiomatic expressions.

We can see below that they are some daily toned vocabularies but we may find them helpful to boost our score in IELTS speaking test.
1. He said he’d touch the base with me tomorrow.
     This means the person ‘He’ will come in contact or communication with ‘Me’.
2. I remember how I used to while away the hours during summer vacation.
     This means the person spends time in that way, because he is waiting for
     something else to happen, or because he has nothing else to do
3. She waited the news with bated breath.
     This means her breath is restrained and she produces voice in a mumbling or 
     murmuring fashion.
4. We found ourselves in dire straits.
     This means that they are in a state of extreme distress.
5. The gophers are wreaking havoc with my garden.
     This means the gophers are causing wreckage or destruction. Wreak means 
     causing while havoc means destruction or disorder. 

Try to always use these idioms in your daily conversation with your people around you so they can come in handy when your topic relates to them.

In IELTS Jakarta we introduce these expressions to our students and let them be well versed so they can recall them at use at any time particularly in the IELTS Speaking test.
