Today, we are going to look at ways of discussing a topic.

When you are writing or speaking, you can present facts, or you can use your opinion - but how can you tell the difference? Today we'll find out. 事实和观点


Listen to a scientist talking about Vitamin D and cancer. (We can only read,..) 

See if you can hear both facts and opions being used.


I believe that the public health problem for vitamin D deficiency is quite significant. I would estimate minimum 25% of adults in the United States, Europe and probably even in Australia are vitamin D deficient.

I mean if you think about it, over 250,000 women in the US will develop breast cancer this year. Something like 50,000 will die. If 25% of those breast cancers could have been averted, prevented in some way, just by having a little exposure to sunlight, would have been really tremendous.


今天我们来看两种表达观点 (opinion) 的方法:phrases and modal verbs.

If I was talking with my firends I might say "I think" or "I believe"

If I was in a class or tutorial, I might say "In my opinion", or "In my view"

If I was writing an essay, or giving a very formal talk, I'd probably choose "it is believed", or "it is thought".


* In formal writing, many people think you should avoid using the word 'I', even if you are giving an opinion.


Model verbs express opinions and attitudes, They make statements less certain or less definite.

They can also be used for recommending and advising.

Here are the modal verbs used for opinions:

would

should

could

might


下一期将会有facts and opinion的选择题。

本期大家可以试着表达opinion, 用上面的短语和情态动词
