首先,請ChatGPT幫你列舉30個常用的職場片語,指令可以這樣下:

形容詞must-have當然也可以換成 common/most useful等等表達「有用、常用」的字。

ChatGPT學英文延伸指令1:造搭配詞

在文章一開始的時候就有強調,ChatGPT是用來幫你創造實用內容的,並無法取代自主學習,所以得到這些實用片語後,一定要驅策自己用最腳踏實地的背單字方法,也就是記搭配詞和自己造句,實際的輸出使用,才能讓這些單字很牢固的鎖在腦子裡喔!這個部分ChatGPT也可以幫你的忙,以第六個片語 “win-win situation” 「雙贏局面」 當作例子,你需要的指令是:

Give me 3 collocations for “win-win situation”. (給我三個 win-win situation 的搭配詞)

這是ChatGPT 給的回應,這三個用法是不是很常使用呢?

  • Create a win-win situation (創造雙贏)
  • Achieve a win-win situation(達成雙贏)
  • Establish a win-win situation (建立雙贏)

ChatGPT學英文延伸指令2:提供造句

背單字很重要的步驟是自己造句,如果一時之間不知道怎麼造,希望先有個例句觀摩一下,也可以請ChatGPT幫你造句,假設你要學第二個片語 touch base ,你需要的指令是:

Make a sentence using “touch base”.(用touch base 造句)

這是我得到的回應:

  • I need to touch base with my colleagues before the meeting to make sure we are all on the same page.

觀摩完例句後一定要逼自己造句,這一步驟非常重要,因為有了知識「輸入」到腦袋中後,也一定要有「輸出」,才能確保有真的學到心坎裡喔!

我自己就試著造一個跟我自己生活相關的句子,因為等一下的確就要和團隊開一個直播的會議。

  • Let’s touch base on the upcoming livestream that’s scheduled for next week.

ChatGPT學英文延伸指令3: 訂正語句

大家在造句階段有可能會卡住,或是不確定語句文法是不是正確的,這時也可以請ChatGPT幫你檢查喔。你需要的指令是:

Can you correct this sentence? (接你的造句) Let’s touch base on the upcoming livestream that is scheduled for next week.

ChatGPT跟我說這句話的文法上是對的 (is grammatically correct),但是,如果要有小修改的話可以說 “Let’s touch base about the details of the upcoming livestream that is scheduled for next week.” 從中我又學到另一個搭配:touch base about the details of…(某個事件)。

ChatGPT學英文延伸指令4: 確認用法自然程度

拿第五個片語 Think outside the box 舉例,我自己的疑惑是想說可不可以說 “go” outside the box呢?這樣夠道地嗎?於是我這樣下指令:

Is it natural to say “go outside the box”?

ChatGPT回應我,think outside the box 還是比較常見的說法,除非真的是要在一個 box 外圍進行移動、走出去,才會需要用到 go,解釋算是滿完整的,也可以順便練習英文閱讀喔。要是看不懂這段英文解釋時又該怎麼辦呢?來到第五個延伸指令,請它做中英翻譯。

ChatGPT學英文延伸指令5: 做中英翻譯

我拿第十一個 synergy當作例子,ChatGPT給的解釋是 The interaction or cooperation of two or more elements to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects. 如果覺得這段文字有點難以理解的話,也可以請ChatGPT翻譯成中文,使用指令:

請用繁體中文翻譯 The interaction or cooperation of two or more elements to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

或是,你的指令也可以是:

請用繁體中文解釋…(單字)。

記得要說是「繁體中文」喔,不然有可能得到的是簡體字,而且會偏向使用中國的用詞。

以上就是示範如何用ChatGPT學英文的步驟及技巧 —— 從 ChatGPT 提供的 30 個常用商用片語中,延伸下指令幫助自己有更全面、更深層的學習。最後還是要提醒大家喔,ChatGPT只是一個提供內容、知識的工具,永遠無法取代你的自主學習,最終還是要回到自己的努力喔!
