英语四级作文佳句模板系列(3)：告别 "I think"
在英语四级写作中，很多时候我们都需要提到自己的观点，这时，同学们的头脑里估计会本能的蹦出 “I think”或者是 “in my opinion”之类的句式。如果这样的话，请对这些词说拜拜吧，因为，你已经不需要它们了。只要你愿意，你将学会以下其他表达方式：
1. I reckon, 用于阐述自己的观点，比 “I think I”更正式。
e.g. I reckon it will be much faster to get to London by train.
2. In my view,比 “in my opinion更正式，经常用于讨论重要的事情。
e.g. In my view, they made a huge mistake in not selling the company when they had the chance.
3. It seems to me & All things considered，皆可用于仔细思考问题或局势时。
e.g. (i) It seems to me that they are spending more money than they need to attract new talent into the company.
(ii) All things considered, I think we made a wise choice in recruiting James.
4. If you ask me，用于当你的观点于对方十分重要时;
e.g. If you ask me, she has spoilt her children far too much.
e.g. “If you ask me,…..” “But I didn’t ask you….!”
5. To be honest &To tell you the truth &To be frank，皆用于知道对方可能不喜欢你的观点时。
e.g. (i) To tell you the truth, your father was right when he said that you undersold the company.
(ii) To be honest, I preferred it when you were blonde.
(iii) To be frank, I thought her acting was simply terrible.
6. Frankly speaking，更加直白的方式，用于熟悉的人。
e.g. (i) You would use this expression to give your opinion in a more familiar and forthright way.
(ii) Frankly speaking, I don’t know what she sees in him.
e.g. (i) This is used to emphasize that you are giving your own opinion
(ii) Personally, I think the CEO should apologize for his appalling behavior at the shareholders’ meeting.
8. To my mind& As far as I’m concerned，皆可用于对方不同意你的观点时。
e.g. (i) To my mind, private education is better than state education.
(ii) As far as I’m concerned, tennis is a much more interesting sport than football.
这样以来，除了“I think” 和“in my opinion”，你仍有N种方式可以用于陈述观点，何乐而不为呢？
