I. Reading skill -- Recognizing Differences Between Facts and Opinion
1.Difference Between Facts and Opinions Facts are statements that tell what really happened or what really in the case. A fact can be proved or disproved with direct evidence. It is something known by actual experience or observing. Opinions are statements of belief, judgment or feeling. They show what someone thinks or feels about a subject. Solid opinions, of course, are based on facts. However, opinions are still somebody’s view of something and are not facts themselves. It is now always easy to tell opinion from fact. A writer often combines the two in such a way that we do not always notice where facts ends and opinion begins. When we have a mixture of fact and opinion in a single statement, we must decide whether the main point of the sentence is essentially fact or opinion. Sometimes an opinion is presented as it it were a fact.
2.Practice Find and look at the following statements from reading Passage B. Which are facts? Which are opinions? After much thought, I came up with a brilliant plan for Rich to meet my mother and win her over (para1, passage B) Answer: F One day, my mother called me, to invite me to a birthday dinner for my father. (para2, passage B) Answer: F I knew she would do this, because cooking was how my mother expressed her love, her pride, her power, her proof that she knew more than any one else. (para3, passage A) Answer: O
Rich was not only not Chinese, he was also my junior, a few years younger than I was. (para6, passage B) Answer: F And unfortunately, he looked much younger with his curly red hair, smooth pale skin, and the splash of orange. freckles across his nose. (para6, passage B) Answer: O In his dark business suits, he looked nice but easily forgettable, like somebody’s nephew at a funeral. (para6, passage B) Answer: O
I felt compelled to defend on his behalf, a bit too heatedly as I raised my voice above the noise of the kitchen. (para9, passage B) Answer: O He had brought a bottle of French wine, something he did not know my parents could not appreciate.(para14, passage B) Answer: F
But the worst happened when Rich criticized my mother’s cooking, and he didn’t even have a clue about what he had done. (para15, passage B) Answer: O As is the Chinese cook’s custom, my mother always made negative remarks about her own cooking. (para15, passage B) Answer: F
