随着8、9月份美国留学申请热季的到来,如何撰写美国大学申请文书便是准留学生们最为关心的重要内容之一。而美国大学文书材料是申请者提交的“软实力”证明,因此一份漂亮给力的留学文书,能对美国名校申请起着至关重要的作用。那美国留学文书写作技巧有哪些呢?下面留学监理网的老师从留学文书写作要点为大家指点迷津。

美国大学申请"软实力":留学文书写作技巧与要点提炼!

拿到众多材料证明,不知道如何下笔?怎样写好美国留学申请文书呢?美国大学文书材料有哪些技巧和要点呢?据留学圈内资深文书老师经验来看,一般来说,只要抓住下面这几大写作要点,那将会对大家的文书撰写有很大帮助:

A.不要在开头就为全文做好了总结,有些同学一开头就写,去年暑假我参加了残奥会志愿者活动,从这次活动中我学会了如何与他人沟通协调。问问自己为什么别人在看了你的开头后还愿意继续读完全文,如果开头就做好总结,那也没有必要读完全文了。

B.开头可以留下点悬念,阴谋。

记住:每篇文章必须有且只能有一个focus。

要有过渡和承接,使得文章进展地流畅,这些过渡不一定要是in addition, therefore,so之类的写雅思作文用的词。过渡的要自然。

C.美国大学留学文书写作要独创、新颖。如果写得比较有创意,再枯燥的主题也能写出彩。比如:

写自己参加体操比赛的经历,有人开头平铺直叙:我为了参加某次体操比赛,努力训练了许多周。很boring,但若写成:我在清晨五点钟醒来,投入到汗水,眼泪,鲜血混成的高低杠中去,因为我梦想着要把省体操比赛战利品捧回到我的家乡来。一下子就夺人眼球了。

做自己,写自己。除了描述出对你而言有意义的经历事件之外,也写出你的感悟和思想。

D.不要太刻意弄许多大词,新词,怪词。有些同学的文章老师需要边翻着词典才能读得懂。实在没有太多必要。其实你的语言功底TOEFL/SAT分数证实地更有效。

E.使用些形象化的描述,创造比较生动的意象。因为整片文章需要你鲜活的经历作为evidence,如果你写经历都写得干巴巴,还能指望文章打动谁-

结尾也很重要。

结尾是给招生官留下最后印象的一部分。不要使用in "in conclusion, in summary, to  conclude之类的总结词。建议大家写得稍微幽默一点,招生官每天读文章读的很累,好不容易把你文章看完了,如果能在最后让他幽默一笑,嘴角犯上一丝笑容的话,说不定就让他记忆深刻了。可以巧妙的和开头相呼应一下。

美国大学留学文书PS范文

范文.jpg

(一)自我陈诉、开门见山、直入主题型

I am applying for admission to the Ph.D. program in Electrical and Computer Engineering, at the University of California, Berkeley. I present my research experience and study objectives in this statement of purpose. I would like to build on my solid education and experience as an engineer for a Ph. D. degree in computer science at a distinguished university. I wish in particular to be trained at an advanced level in software systems, database systems, applied-AI and knowledge-based systems. My ultimate goal is to become a professor teaching computer science at a Chinese university. I believe that advanced training in a quality graduate program will help me realize my goal.

(二)叙述故事,说理型 1.叙述自己的家庭故事

My father is a chartered accountant and my mother is a banker. During my days at Engineering College I used to go to my father's office and help him manage his portfolio of equities and other financial instruments. This was the time I learnt the first lesson of finance from my father i.e. risk and return are proportionate. In 1998 when I was in the second year the China stock market crashed. But fortunately, my father had a well-diversified portfolio because of which our returns were protected from the downside risk. This was when I learnt the second principle of finance from my father i.e. diversification reduces risk. While I understood these two principles intuitively, it produced in me a strong urge to learn and understand the complex theory behind the working of Finance. This, I believe, was a turning point in my career. I made up my mind to pursue a career in Finance and hence decided to do a Masters program in Business Administration.

这种申请美国大学文书写法的优点:联系家庭,叙述自己。给人感觉亲切。

这种美国留学文书写作写法的缺点:无法引起读者的强烈兴趣。

(三)引用谚语、名言等。

When asked how to manage to mask remarkable statues, the French sculptor Auguste Rodin answered, “I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don't need.(法国雕塑家罗丹说:“给我一块大理石,把多余的去掉。”)” For me, life is just a block of marble---whether the marble can be turned into a remarkable statue depends on your natural talents, diligence and a sense of duty. During over four years’ my college life, I have been dreaming of being a perfect female researcher so that I can enhance more young girls’ confidence in scientific research and encourage them to promote the development of science as men do. For Knowledge Itself Is Power.This is one of my favorite precepts and at this point in my life when I am about to complete my graduation and my future spreads in front of me like a dream, this adage has never influenced my life more than this before.

这种写法的优点:引用谚语、名言来引出自己的观点,可以显示出作者有很强的文化底蕴。

这种写法的缺点:没有办法表现突出的个人特色。
