[00:14.27]Model Test Ten
[00:17.64]Section A
[00:19.93]Directions: In this section,
[00:24.03]you will hear 8 short conversations
[00:27.06]and 2 long c conversations.
[00:30.77]At the end of each conversation,
[00:33.16]one or more questions will be asked
[00:35.45]about what was said.
[00:37.82]Both the conversation
[00:39.40]and the questions will be spoken
[00:41.71]only once. After each question
[00:45.56]there will be a pause.
[00:47.78]During the pause,
[00:49.59]you must read the four choices
[00:51.86]marked A), B), C) and D),
[00:56.52]and decide
[00:57.67]which is the best answer.
[01:00.17]Then mark
[01:01.12]the corresponding letter
[01:03.11]on Answer Sheet 2
[01:05.39]with a single line
[01:06.84]through the centre.
[01:09.51]Now let's begin with the
[01:11.01]eight short conversations.
[01:15.32]11. W: You look so energetic
[01:18.54]and full of life.
[01:20.22]I can’t believe
[01:21.20]you are a man
[01:22.06]over 60 years old.
[01:24.49]M: Really? In fact, I’m 62.
[01:28.58]Q: What’s the man’s attitude
[01:30.02]to the woman’s remark?
[01:46.89]12. W: Our English teacher said
[01:50.18]the mid-term exam
[01:51.54]would cover the first 20 lessons.
[01:54.23]M: Oh, I thought it only
[01:55.97]included the first 15 lessons.
[01:58.87]Then I must spend the weekend
[02:01.00]reviewing the rest of the lessons.
[02:04.26]Q: How many lessons must
[02:05.57]the man go over on the weekend?
[02:23.31]13. M: John is a very famous
[02:26.76]movie star,
[02:27.93]and Tom is well known, too.
[02:30.77]W: Do you really think so?
[02:32.81]I believe that David is more famous
[02:35.44]than both of them
[02:36.84]and Tom is the last one
[02:38.70]I’d regard as famous.
[02:41.15]Q: Whom does the woman
[02:42.33]consider the least famous?
[02:59.83]14. M: Mary, do you still want
[03:03.47]to buy that nice white car
[03:05.33]you looked at last month?
[03:07.61]W: I’m afraid that’s impossible
[03:09.68]because I haven’t been able
[03:11.24]to come up with the cash,
[03:13.05]and someone else has already
[03:15.40]made a down payment on it.
[03:17.24]Q: What can be inferred
[03:18.69]about Mary?
[03:35.44]15. M: I’d like to see
[03:38.68]a different type of film
[03:40.11]for a change.
[03:41.53]I’m tired of the films
[03:42.81]about detective stories.
[03:45.61]W: Me too.
[03:46.86]Let’s go and see a new film
[03:48.43]at the Grand Theatre.
[03:49.99]I hear it’s a real story
[03:51.58]between two lovers.
[03:54.19]Q: What kind of film
[03:55.60]does the man find dull?
[04:13.23]16. W: It seems the hotels
[04:16.21]here have little business
[04:17.90]these days.
[04:19.18]M: That’s true,
[04:20.41]but this place is a scenic spot
[04:22.81]and this is not
[04:23.95]the busy season.
[04:25.55]When spring comes,
[04:26.64]you will see lots of tourists
[04:28.47]waiting in line to get a room.
[04:31.46]Q: What can we learn
[04:32.30]about the hotels
[04:33.55]from the conversation?
[04:50.58]17. M: You don’t look
[04:53.25]very happy.
[04:54.40]What’s on your mind?
[04:56.33]W: I’ve got to write
[04:57.27]a long composition
[04:58.51]for my English class,
[05:00.36]but I just can’t come up
[05:02.11]with any ideas.
[05:03.80]What’s worse,
[05:04.92]it’s due tomorrow.
[05:07.84]Q: What is the woman’s
[05:09.14]problem?
[05:25.24]18. M: I found an expensive
[05:28.72]wrist watch in the rest room
[05:30.61]this afternoon.
[05:32.46]W: If I were you,
[05:34.06]I would turn it in
[05:35.32]to the security office.
[05:37.38]It’s behind the playground.
[05:39.20]Q: What does the woman
[05:40.49]suggest the man do?
[05:57.82]Now you will hear
[05:58.62]the two long conversations.
[06:02.23]Conversation One
[06:05.11]W: Hello, Mr. Ford.
[06:06.71]Do you have a few minutes?
[06:08.38]M: Yes, come in, please.
[06:10.66]W: I’m Liu Jun,
[06:11.99]one of your advisees.
[06:14.08]M: Well, what can I do for you?
[06:16.72]W: I want to change
[06:17.70]one of my courses.
[06:19.58]M: What’s the problem?
[06:21.09]W: 432 is about Children’s
[06:23.47]Literature and I really need
[06:25.71]to study Psychology.
[06:27.80]Can I change for something else?
[06:30.50]M: Well, you could try
[06:32.27]Psychology 320.
[06:34.69]That’s Elementary Psychology
[06:36.27]for public school teachers.
[06:38.54]W: I’ve already had
[06:40.17]Elementary Psychology.
[06:42.25]And now I’d like
[06:43.37]to take something more advanced.
[06:45.77]M: The advanced courses
[06:47.12]have prerequisites
[06:48.51]which you may not have had.
[06:50.72]W: Can you look at my records
[06:52.63]to see if my previous courses
[06:54.68]qualify me
[06:55.76]to take a more advanced
[06:57.05]Psychology course?
[06:58.98]M: Let me see.
[07:01.03]Yes, you’ve already
[07:02.31]had several
[07:03.18]psychology courses.
[07:04.91]You can try an advanced one.
[07:07.67]How about 551?
[07:10.55]That’s a good one.
[07:11.70]W: OK, I’ll take that one.
[07:14.23]M: I’ll sign
[07:14.82]your application forms.
[07:16.81]Now, you’re all set.
[07:19.11]W: Is that all?
[07:20.22]M: No. Next you should
[07:21.95]take your application forms
[07:23.43]to the department office.
[07:25.48]And they’ll fix you up.
[07:27.32]W: Thanks very much.
[07:28.65]M: You’re welcome and good luck.
[07:32.61]Questions 19 to 22 are based
[07:35.33]on the conversation
[07:36.97]you have just heard.
[07:40.31]19. Why does the woman
[07:42.89]want to change her course?
[08:00.34]20. What can we learn
[08:02.67]about the woman’s job?
[08:20.07]21. What kind of course
[08:22.88]does the woman take at last?
[08:40.49]22. Where should the woman
[08:43.15]go after leaving the man?
[09:00.63]Conversation Two
[09:03.80]W: How would you like to
[09:04.67]come to Seattle with me
[09:06.19]over spring break?
[09:07.86]M: I’d love to.
[09:09.33]But where can we stay?
[09:11.31]W: At a friend’s house.
[09:12.74]I always stay with this friend
[09:15.08]and there’s room for you too.
[09:17.68]We’ll just bring sleeping bags
[09:19.45]and sleep on the floor.
[09:21.37]M: OK. He won’t mind?
[09:23.56]W: Of course not.
[09:25.07]He’s looking forward
[09:26.18]to seeing you.
[09:28.45]M: Does he live
[09:29.24]in downtown Seattle?
[09:31.38]W: No, in the suburbs.
[09:33.24]But we’ll have a car
[09:34.48]so we can go into the city.
[09:36.89]M: Shall we drive to Seattle?
[09:38.99]W: Yes, it takes about
[09:40.76]six hours.
[09:42.20]We can leave at noon
[09:43.57]and get there
[09:44.67]by suppertime.
[09:46.07]M: Let me pay for gas.
[09:48.12]What other expenses
[09:49.45]will we have?
[09:50.77]W: All right.
[09:51.83]There’ll be four of us,
[09:53.52]so we’ll each pay a quarter.
[09:55.53]There won’t be
[09:56.54]any other expenses except food.
[09:59.23]M: Good!
[10:00.56]And shall we cook together?
[10:02.51]W: Let’s take turns.
[10:04.15]You buy food one day,
[10:05.88]I’ll buy it another.
[10:07.76]M: Sounds fun.
[10:09.23]By the way,
[10:10.16]what’s the climate like?
[10:12.20]W: It may be cold and rainy.
[10:14.59]Better bring a jacket
[10:15.98]and good walking shoes.
[10:18.01]And don’t forget
[10:19.20]to bring comfortable clothes
[10:20.84]and one nice outfit for going
[10:23.23]to a restaurant.
[10:24.65]M: OK. When do we leave?
[10:27.34]W: How about Thursday?
[10:28.96]Can you be ready by noon?
[10:30.77]M: Sure. Where shall I meet you?
[10:33.51]W: I’ll pick you up then.
[10:35.27]M: All right. Goodbye.
[10:39.29]Questions 23 to 25 are based
[10:42.40]on the conversation
[10:43.90]you have just heard.
[10:47.12]23. What are the two speakers
[10:50.97]talking about?
[11:07.65]24. Where does the woman’s
[11:10.78]friend live in Seattle?
[11:28.17]25. What can we learn
[11:30.76]from the conversation?
[11:47.71]Section B
[11:49.50]Directions: In this section,
[11:53.04]you will hear 3 short passages,
[11:56.41]at the end of each passage,
[11:58.70]you will hear some questions.
[12:00.96]Both the passage
[12:02.07]and the questions will be spoken
[12:04.48]only once.
[12:07.48]After you hear a question,
[12:09.42]you must choose the best answer
[12:11.65]from the four choices
[12:13.07]marked A), B), C) and D).
[12:16.37]Then mark the corresponding letter
[12:18.57]on Answer Sheet 2
[12:20.45]with a single line
[12:21.96]through the centre.
[12:24.38]M: Passage One
[12:26.71]Everyone has its own way of
[12:28.90]saying things
[12:30.29]and its own
[12:31.64]special expressions.
[12:33.65]Many daily expressions of
[12:35.37]Americans are based on colors.
[12:38.35]Red is a hot color.
[12:40.75]Americans often use it
[12:42.39]to express heat.
[12:44.60]They may say
[12:45.57]they are red hot about
[12:47.21]something unfair.
[12:49.34]When they say
[12:49.87]they are red hot,
[12:51.20]it means
[12:52.09]they are very angry
[12:53.76]over something.
[12:55.45]The small hot tasting
[12:56.73]peppers found
[12:57.62]in many Mexican foods are
[12:59.68]called red hots for their color
[13:02.41]and their fiery taste.
[13:05.17]Fast loud music is
[13:07.29]popular with many people.
[13:09.53]They say the music is red hot,
[13:12.36]especially the kind called Jazz.
[13:15.81]Blue is a cool color.
[13:18.47]The traditional Blues Music
[13:20.30]in the United States is
[13:21.98]the opposite of
[13:22.90]Red Hot Music. Blues is slow,
[13:26.23]sad and sorrowful.
[13:28.66]Someone who is blue is
[13:30.22]very sad.
[13:31.95]The color black is also
[13:33.85]often used in expressions.
[13:36.31]People describe a day
[13:37.61]in which everything goes
[13:38.88]wrong as “a black day”.
[13:41.82]The date of a major tragedy
[13:44.12]is remembered as a black day.
[13:47.17]A blacklist is illegal now.
[13:49.94]But at one time,
[13:51.17]some businesses refused to
[13:52.99]employ people
[13:53.89]who were on a blacklist
[13:55.69]for belonging to
[13:56.84]unpopular organizations.
[13:59.90]In some cases,
[14:01.27]colors describe a situation.
[14:04.50]A brown out is an expression
[14:06.43]for a reduction
[14:07.89]in electric power.
[14:10.02]Brown outs happen
[14:11.21]when there is too much
[14:12.32]demand for electricity.
[14:14.97]The electric system is
[14:16.14]unable to offer all the power
[14:18.14]needed in an area.
[14:21.12]Black outs were common
[14:22.75]during World WarⅡ.
[14:24.93]Officials would order all lights
[14:26.89]in a city turned off
[14:28.78]to make it difficult
[14:30.02]for enemy planes
[14:31.11]to find a target in the dark.
[14:35.57]Questions 26 to 29 are based
[14:38.66]on the passage
[14:39.73]you have just heard.
[14:42.91]26. Which of the following is
[14:46.40]NOT discussed in the passage?
[15:04.05]27. What can we learn about
[15:07.52]colors from this passage?
[15:24.91]28. What’s the opposite of
[15:28.60]red hot music?
[15:45.62]29. What does the expression
[15:48.79]“brown out” mean?
[16:06.12]Passage Two
[16:08.39]For good or bad, computers are
[16:10.63]now part of our daily lives.
[16:13.42]With the price of a small
[16:15.09]home computer being lower,
[16:17.26]experts predict that
[16:18.86]before long,
[16:19.97]all schools and businesses
[16:21.94]and most families in rich parts of
[16:24.87]the world will own a computer of
[16:27.21]some kind.
[16:28.90]Among the general public,
[16:30.59]computers arouse strong feelings
[16:33.86]-people either love them
[16:35.29]or hate them.
[16:37.03]The computer lovers talk about
[16:39.29]how useful computers can be
[16:41.55]in business, in education
[16:43.53]and in home-
[16:45.40]apart from all the games,
[16:47.23]you can do your accounts on them,
[16:49.47]use them to control your
[16:51.06]central heating,
[16:52.34]and in some cases
[16:54.30]even do your shopping with them.
[16:56.93]Computers, they say,
[16:58.94]will also bring some leisure,
[17:01.37]as more and more unpleasant jobs
[17:03.75]are taken over by computerized robots.
[17:07.33]The haters, on the other hand,
[17:10.04]argue that computers bring
[17:11.85]not leisure but unemployment.
[17:14.69]They are worried, too,
[17:16.71]that people
[17:17.60]who spend all their time
[17:19.05]talking to computers
[17:20.73]will forget
[17:21.56]how to talk to each other.
[17:23.57]And anyway, they ask,
[17:25.73]what’s wrong with
[17:26.85]going shopping
[17:27.88]and learning languages
[17:29.10]in classroom with real teachers?
[17:32.08]But their biggest fear is
[17:34.40]that computers may eventually
[17:36.41]take over from
[17:37.54]human beings altogether.
[17:41.76]Questions 30 to 32 are based
[17:44.34]on the passage you have just heard.
[17:49.56]30. What is the tone of the speaker?
[18:08.97]31. What is the topic of the passage?
[18:28.21]32. What is the biggest fear of
[18:31.96]computer-haters?
[18:48.63]Passage Three
[18:50.47]The English language was
[18:52.02]strongly influenced
[18:53.35]by an event
[18:54.30]that took place
[18:55.12]more than 1 400 years ago.
[18:58.70]In the year 597,
[19:01.11]the Roman Catholic Church
[19:03.13]began its attempt to
[19:04.51]make Christianity
[19:05.73]the religion of Britain.
[19:08.17]The language of the Catholic Church
[19:10.09]was Latin. Latin was not spoken
[19:13.00]as a language in any country
[19:15.01]at that time.
[19:16.47]But it was still used
[19:18.06]by some people.
[19:20.23]Latin made it possible
[19:21.46]for a church member from Rome
[19:23.49]to speak to
[19:24.29]a church member from Britain.
[19:26.98]Educated people from
[19:28.50]different countries could
[19:29.90]communicate using Latin.
[19:32.76]Latin had a great effect on
[19:34.43]English language.
[19:36.74]Here are a few examples.
[19:38.86]The Latin word “discus”
[19:40.60]became several words in English
[19:42.78]including “disk”, “dish”,
[19:44.81]and “desk”. The Latin word
[19:47.72]“quietus” became the
[19:49.51]English word “quiet”.
[19:52.08]Some English names of plants
[19:54.04]such as “ginger” and “tree”
[19:56.09]come from Latin.
[19:57.87]So do medical words
[19:59.23]such as “cancer”.
[20:01.27]English is like a living creature
[20:03.57]that continues to grow.
[20:05.75]English began to grow
[20:07.26]more quickly
[20:08.19]when William Caxton
[20:09.67]returned to Britain in 1476.
[20:13.00]He had been in Holland
[20:14.73]and other areas of Europe
[20:16.50]where he had learned printing.
[20:18.92]He returned to Britain
[20:20.22]with the first printing press.
[20:22.76]The printing press made it
[20:24.27]possible for almost anyone to
[20:26.50]buy a book. It helped spread
[20:28.92]education
[20:29.59]and the English language.
[20:33.30]Questions 33 to 35 are based
[20:36.35]on the passage
[20:37.34]you have just heard.
[20:40.46]33. What can we learn about Latin?
[21:00.49]34. When did William Caxton
[21:04.12]return to Britain?
[21:20.62]35. What does the speaker
[21:23.72]say about printing press?
[21:41.57]Section C
[21:43.62]Directions: In this section,
[21:46.78]you will hear a passage
[21:48.06]three timess.
[21:49.97]When the passage is read
[21:51.60]for the first time,
[21:53.19]you should listen carefully
[21:55.01]for its general idea.
[21:57.38]When the passage is read
[21:59.25]for the second time,
[22:00.70]you are required to
[22:02.39]fill in the blanks
[22:03.70]numbered from 36 to 43
[22:07.45]with the exact words
[22:09.10]you have just heard.
[22:11.54]For blanks
[22:12.62]numbered from 44 to 46
[22:16.23]you are required to fill in
[22:18.16]the missing information.
[22:20.45]For these blanks,
[22:22.34]you can either use the

[22:44.21]Good morning, everyone,

[22:59.40]I know that finding housing
[23:01.26]is often difficult.
[23:03.24]So let me give you some
[23:04.77]information
[23:05.58]that might help you.
[23:07.68]I know

[23:20.49]and living rooms, kitchen,
[23:22.13]two bathrooms,
[23:23.38]and four single bedrooms.

[23:27.70]empty rooms,
[23:28.76]so if you are interested in
[23:30.58]moving in, let me know right away.

[23:46.28]They are on the south side
[23:47.89]of campus, near the

[00:14.27]Model Test Ten [00:17.64]Section A [00:19.93]Directions: In this section, [00:24.03]you will hear 8 short conversations [00:27.06]and 2 long c conversations. [00:30.77]At the end of each conversation, [00:33.16]one or more questions will be asked [00:35.45]about what was said. [00:37.82]Both the conversation [00:39.40]and the questions will be spoken [00:41.71]only once. After each question [00:45.56]there will be a pause. [00:47.78]During the pause, [00:49.59]you must read the four choices [00:51.86]marked A), B), C) and D), [00:56.52]and decide [00:57.67]which is the best answer. [01:00.17]Then mark [01:01.12]the corresponding letter [01:03.11]on Answer Sheet 2 [01:05.39]with a single line [01:06.84]through the centre. [01:09.51]Now let's begin with the [01:11.01]eight short conversations. [01:15.32]11. W: You look so energetic [01:18.54]and full of life. [01:20.22]I can’t believe [01:21.20]you are a man [01:22.06]over 60 years old. [01:24.49]M: Really? In fact, I’m 62. [01:28.58]Q: What’s the man’s attitude [01:30.02]to the woman’s remark? [01:46.89]12. W: Our English teacher said [01:50.18]the mid-term exam [01:51.54]would cover the first 20 lessons. [01:54.23]M: Oh, I thought it only [01:55.97]included the first 15 lessons. [01:58.87]Then I must spend the weekend [02:01.00]reviewing the rest of the lessons. [02:04.26]Q: How many lessons must [02:05.57]the man go over on the weekend? [02:23.31]13. M: John is a very famous [02:26.76]movie star, [02:27.93]and Tom is well known, too. [02:30.77]W: Do you really think so? [02:32.81]I believe that David is more famous [02:35.44]than both of them [02:36.84]and Tom is the last one [02:38.70]I’d regard as famous. [02:41.15]Q: Whom does the woman [02:42.33]consider the least famous? [02:59.83]14. M: Mary, do you still want [03:03.47]to buy that nice white car [03:05.33]you looked at last month? [03:07.61]W: I’m afraid that’s impossible [03:09.68]because I haven’t been able [03:11.24]to come up with the cash, [03:13.05]and someone else has already [03:15.40]made a down payment on it. [03:17.24]Q: What can be inferred [03:18.69]about Mary? [03:35.44]15. M: I’d like to see [03:38.68]a different type of film [03:40.11]for a change. [03:41.53]I’m tired of the films [03:42.81]about detective stories. [03:45.61]W: Me too. [03:46.86]Let’s go and see a new film [03:48.43]at the Grand Theatre. [03:49.99]I hear it’s a real story [03:51.58]between two lovers. [03:54.19]Q: What kind of film [03:55.60]does the man find dull? [04:13.23]16. W: It seems the hotels [04:16.21]here have little business [04:17.90]these days. [04:19.18]M: That’s true, [04:20.41]but this place is a scenic spot [04:22.81]and this is not [04:23.95]the busy season. [04:25.55]When spring comes, [04:26.64]you will see lots of tourists [04:28.47]waiting in line to get a room. [04:31.46]Q: What can we learn [04:32.30]about the hotels [04:33.55]from the conversation? [04:50.58]17. M: You don’t look [04:53.25]very happy. [04:54.40]What’s on your mind? [04:56.33]W: I’ve got to write [04:57.27]a long composition [04:58.51]for my English class, [05:00.36]but I just can’t come up [05:02.11]with any ideas. [05:03.80]What’s worse, [05:04.92]it’s due tomorrow. [05:07.84]Q: What is the woman’s [05:09.14]problem? [05:25.24]18. M: I found an expensive [05:28.72]wrist watch in the rest room [05:30.61]this afternoon. [05:32.46]W: If I were you, [05:34.06]I would turn it in [05:35.32]to the security office. [05:37.38]It’s behind the playground. [05:39.20]Q: What does the woman [05:40.49]suggest the man do? [05:57.82]Now you will hear [05:58.62]the two long conversations. [06:02.23]Conversation One [06:05.11]W: Hello, Mr. Ford. [06:06.71]Do you have a few minutes? [06:08.38]M: Yes, come in, please. [06:10.66]W: I’m Liu Jun, [06:11.99]one of your advisees. [06:14.08]M: Well, what can I do for you? [06:16.72]W: I want to change [06:17.70]one of my courses. [06:19.58]M: What’s the problem? [06:21.09]W: 432 is about Children’s [06:23.47]Literature and I really need [06:25.71]to study Psychology. [06:27.80]Can I change for something else? [06:30.50]M: Well, you could try [06:32.27]Psychology 320. [06:34.69]That’s Elementary Psychology [06:36.27]for public school teachers. [06:38.54]W: I’ve already had [06:40.17]Elementary Psychology. [06:42.25]And now I’d like [06:43.37]to take something more advanced. [06:45.77]M: The advanced courses [06:47.12]have prerequisites [06:48.51]which you may not have had. [06:50.72]W: Can you look at my records [06:52.63]to see if my previous courses [06:54.68]qualify me [06:55.76]to take a more advanced [06:57.05]Psychology course? [06:58.98]M: Let me see. [07:01.03]Yes, you’ve already [07:02.31]had several [07:03.18]psychology courses. [07:04.91]You can try an advanced one. [07:07.67]How about 551? [07:10.55]That’s a good one. [07:11.70]W: OK, I’ll take that one. [07:14.23]M: I’ll sign [07:14.82]your application forms. [07:16.81]Now, you’re all set. [07:19.11]W: Is that all? [07:20.22]M: No. Next you should [07:21.95]take your application forms [07:23.43]to the department office. [07:25.48]And they’ll fix you up. [07:27.32]W: Thanks very much. [07:28.65]M: You’re welcome and good luck. [07:32.61]Questions 19 to 22 are based [07:35.33]on the conversation [07:36.97]you have just heard. [07:40.31]19. Why does the woman [07:42.89]want to change her course? [08:00.34]20. What can we learn [08:02.67]about the woman’s job? [08:20.07]21. What kind of course [08:22.88]does the woman take at last? [08:40.49]22. Where should the woman [08:43.15]go after leaving the man? [09:00.63]Conversation Two [09:03.80]W: How would you like to [09:04.67]come to Seattle with me [09:06.19]over spring break? [09:07.86]M: I’d love to. [09:09.33]But where can we stay? [09:11.31]W: At a friend’s house. [09:12.74]I always stay with this friend [09:15.08]and there’s room for you too. [09:17.68]We’ll just bring sleeping bags [09:19.45]and sleep on the floor. [09:21.37]M: OK. He won’t mind? [09:23.56]W: Of course not. [09:25.07]He’s looking forward [09:26.18]to seeing you. [09:28.45]M: Does he live [09:29.24]in downtown Seattle? [09:31.38]W: No, in the suburbs. [09:33.24]But we’ll have a car [09:34.48]so we can go into the city. [09:36.89]M: Shall we drive to Seattle?

[10:35.27]M: All right. Goodbye. [10:39.29]Questions 23 to 25 are based [10:42.40]on the conversation [10:43.90]you have just heard. [10:47.12]23. What are the two speakers [10:50.97]talking about? [11:07.65]24. Where does the woman’s [11:10.78]friend live in Seattle? [11:28.17]25. What can we learn [11:30.76]from the conversation? [11:47.71]Section B [11:49.50]Directions: In this section, [11:53.04]you will hear 3 short passages, [11:56.41]at the end of each passage, [11:58.70]you will hear some questions. [12:00.96]Both the passage [12:02.07]and the questions will be spoken [12:04.48]only once. [12:07.48]After you hear a question, [12:09.42]you must choose the best answer [12:11.65]from the four choices [12:13.07]marked A), B), C) and D). [12:16.37]Then mark the corresponding letter [12:18.57]on Answer Sheet 2 [12:20.45]with a single line [12:21.96]through the centre. [12:24.38]M: Passage One [12:26.71]Everyone has its own way of [12:28.90]saying things [12:30.29]and its own [12:31.64]special expressions. [12:33.65]Many daily expressions of [12:35.37]Americans are based on colors. [12:38.35]Red is a hot color. [12:40.75]Americans often use it [12:42.39]to express heat. [12:44.60]They may say [12:45.57]they are red hot about [12:47.21]something unfair. [12:49.34]When they say [12:49.87]they are red hot, [12:51.20]it means [12:52.09]they are very angry [12:53.76]over something. [12:55.45]The small hot tasting [12:56.73]peppers found [12:57.62]in many Mexican foods are [12:59.68]called red hots for their color [13:02.41]and their fiery taste. [13:05.17]Fast loud music is [13:07.29]popular with many people. [13:09.53]They say the music is red hot, [13:12.36]especially the kind called Jazz. [13:15.81]Blue is a cool color. [13:18.47]The traditional Blues Music [13:20.30]in the United States is [13:21.98]the opposite of [13:22.90]Red Hot Music. Blues is slow, [13:26.23]sad and sorrowful. [13:28.66]Someone who is blue is [13:30.22]very sad. [13:31.95]The color black is also [13:33.85]often used in expressions. [13:36.31]People describe a day [13:37.61]in which everything goes [13:38.88]wrong as “a black day”. [13:41.82]The date of a major tragedy [13:44.12]is remembered as a black day. [13:47.17]A blacklist is illegal now. [13:49.94]But at one time, [13:51.17]some businesses refused to [13:52.99]employ people [13:53.89]who were on a blacklist [13:55.69]for belonging to [13:56.84]unpopular organizations. [13:59.90]In some cases, [14:01.27]colors describe a situation. [14:04.50]A brown out is an expression [14:06.43]for a reduction [14:07.89]in electric power. [14:10.02]Brown outs happen [14:11.21]when there is too much [14:12.32]demand for electricity. [14:14.97]The electric system is [14:16.14]unable to offer all the power [14:18.14]needed in an area. [14:21.12]Black outs were common [14:22.75]during World WarⅡ. [14:24.93]Officials would order all lights [14:26.89]in a city turned off [14:28.78]to make it difficult [14:30.02]for enemy planes [14:31.11]to find a target in the dark. [14:35.57]Questions 26 to 29 are based [14:38.66]on the passage [14:39.73]you have just heard. [14:42.91]26. Which of the following is [14:46.40]NOT discussed in the passage? [15:04.05]27. What can we learn about [15:07.52]colors from this passage? [15:24.91]28. What’s the opposite of [15:28.60]red hot music? [15:45.62]29. What does the expression [15:48.79]“brown out” mean? [16:06.12]Passage Two [16:08.39]For good or bad, computers are [16:10.63]now part of our daily lives. [16:13.42]With the price of a small [16:15.09]home computer being lower, [16:17.26]experts predict that [16:18.86]before long, [16:19.97]all schools and businesses [16:21.94]and most families in rich parts of [16:24.87]the world will own a computer of [16:27.21]some kind. [16:28.90]Among the general public, [16:30.59]computers arouse strong feelings [16:33.86]-people either love them [16:35.29]or hate them. [16:37.03]The computer lovers talk about [16:39.29]how useful computers can be [16:41.55]in business, in education [16:43.53]and in home- [16:45.40]apart from all the games, [16:47.23]you can do your accounts on them, [16:49.47]use them to control your [16:51.06]central heating, [16:52.34]and in some cases [16:54.30]even do your shopping with them. [16:56.93]Computers, they say, [16:58.94]will also bring some leisure, [17:01.37]as more and more unpleasant jobs [17:03.75]are taken over by computerized robots. [17:07.33]The haters, on the other hand, [17:10.04]argue that computers bring [17:11.85]not leisure but unemployment. [17:14.69]They are worried, too, [17:16.71]that people [17:17.60]who spend all their time [17:19.05]talking to computers [17:20.73]will forget [17:21.56]how to talk to each other. [17:23.57]And anyway, they ask, [17:25.73]what’s wrong with [17:26.85]going shopping [17:27.88]and learning languages [17:29.10]in classroom with real teachers? [17:32.08]But their biggest fear is [17:34.40]that computers may eventually [17:36.41]take over from [17:37.54]human beings altogether. [17:41.76]Questions 30 to 32 are based [17:44.34]on the passage you have just heard. [17:49.56]30. What is the tone of the speaker? [18:08.97]31. What is the topic of the passage? [18:28.21]32. What is the biggest fear of [18:31.96]computer-haters? [18:48.63]Passage Three [18:50.47]The English language was [18:52.02]strongly influenced [18:53.35]by an event [18:54.30]that took place [18:55.12]more than 1 400 years ago. [18:58.70]In the year 597, [19:01.11]the Roman Catholic Church [19:03.13]began its attempt to [19:04.51]make Christianity [19:05.73]the religion of Britain. [19:08.17]The language of the Catholic Church [19:10.09]was Latin. Latin was not spoken [19:13.00]as a language in any country [19:15.01]at that time. [19:16.47]But it was still used [19:18.06]by some people. [19:20.23]Latin made it possible [19:21.46]for a church member from Rome [19:23.49]to speak to [19:24.29]a church member from Britain. [19:26.98]Educated people from [19:28.50]different countries could [19:29.90]communicate using Latin. [19:32.76]Latin had a great effect on [19:34.43]English language. [19:36.74]Here are a few examples. [19:38.86]The Latin word “discus” [19:40.60]became several words in English [19:42.78]including “disk”, “dish”, [19:44.81]and “desk”. The Latin word [19:47.72]“quietus” became the [19:49.51]English word “quiet”. [19:52.08]Some English names of plants [19:54.04]such as “ginger” and “tree” [19:56.09]come from Latin. [19:57.87]So do medical words [19:59.23]such as “cancer”. [20:01.27]English is like a living creature [20:03.57]that continues to grow. [20:05.75]English began to grow [20:07.26]more quickly [20:08.19]when William Caxton [20:09.67]returned to Britain in 1476. [20:13.00]He had been in Holland [20:14.73]and other areas of Europe [20:16.50]where he had learned printing. [20:18.92]He returned to Britain [20:20.22]with the first printing press. [20:22.76]The printing press made it [20:24.27]possible for almost anyone to [20:26.50]buy a book. It helped spread [20:28.92]education [20:29.59]and the English language. [20:33.30]Questions 33 to 35 are based [20:36.35]on the passage [20:37.34]you have just heard. [20:40.46]33. What can we learn about Latin? [21:00.49]34. When did William Caxton [21:04.12]return to Britain? [21:20.62]35. What does the speaker [21:23.72]say about printing press? [21:41.57]Section C [21:43.62]Directions: In this section, [21:46.78]you will hear a passage [21:48.06]three timess. [21:49.97]When the passage is read [21:51.60]for the first time, [21:53.19]you should listen carefully [21:55.01]for its general idea.

[22:11.54]For blanks [22:12.62]numbered from 44 to 46 [22:16.23]you are required to fill in [22:18.16]the missing information. [22:20.45]For these blanks, [22:22.34]you can either use the [22:23.83]exact words [22:24.76]you have just heard [22:26.54]or write down the main points [22:28.77]in your own words. Finally, [22:33.03]when the passage is read [22:34.47]for the third time, [22:36.06]you should check [22:36.95]what you have written. [22:39.59]Now listen to the passage.
