[00:05.23]1. M: Linda is very quiet. But her brother talks too much.

[00:33.05]2. W: What time does the film start?
[00:36.49]M: It starts at 7:30. We have 25 minutes to get there.
[00:41.35]Q: What time is it now?
[00:59.51]3.W: I really can't stand the way
[01:02.69]David controls the conversation all the time.
[01:05.55]If he's going to be at the Christmas party, I just won't go. 
[01:09.00]M: I'm sorry you feel that way,
[01:10.26]but my mother insists that he come.
[01:13.63]Q: Why is David being invited to the party?
[01:33.19]4. W: I need a sweater.
[01:36.04]Do you have any navy blue ones in my size?
[01:38.94]M: We don't have any in navy,
[01:41.18]but there are some in light blue.
[01:43.95]Q: Where does the conversation most likely take place?
[02:03.66]5. W: I've got a sore throat and a headache.
[02:07.72]M: I'll have to give you an injection
[02:09.65]as it is more effective than a pill.
[02:12.96]Q: What's the doctor's advice?
[02:31.59]6. M: She wants to apply for the job,
[02:35.40]but she is really not qualified, I'm afraid.

[02:43.11]Q: Why might the applicant receive on the job training?
[03:02.95]7. M: Your white and red skirt looks nice.

[03:12.24]Q: What color does the woman like best?
[03:31.21]8. M: What did you eat for lunch?
[03:34.36]W: My husband and my daughter both had chicken.

[03:39.36]Q: Which is not true according to the conversation?
[03:58.96]Conversation One
[04:01.23]M: Well, how's the patient this morning?
[04:03.49]W: He appears to have had a very restless night.
[04:06.06]M: Oh. Was he in very severe pain?
[04:08.41]W: Yes. I'm afraid he was, doctor.
[04:10.28]M: Hmm. In that case,
[04:11.95]I think we'd better increase his dosage of diamorphine.
[04:15.46]W: Yes, doctor. By how much?
[04:17.30]M: Let's see. How much is he on at the moment?
[04:19.77]W: Five milligrammes.
[04:21.12]M: Hmm. Increase it to fifty.
[04:22.78]W: Fifty? All at once?
[04:24.29]M: Yes, that's what I said, nurse.
[04:25.84]W: But that's an increase of forty five milligrammes.
[04:28.55]M: I'm quite aware of that.
[04:29.70]However, when I operated on the patient yesterday,
[04:32.63]I found his abdomen was riddled with carcinoma.
[04:35.66]I'm sure you realize what that means.
[04:37.60]W: Yes, I do, doctor.
[04:39.03]But I still don't feel I can accept responsibility
[04:41.70]for administering such an increase.
[04:44.16]M: Can't you? What exactly do you suggest, then?
[04:47.61]W: That if you're convinced it's the right thing to do,
[04:49.86]you ought to administer the injection yourself.
[04:52.97]M: Hmm. I see what you mean. Very well, I will.
[04:58.36]Questions 9 to 12 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
[05:03.18]9. What's the possible relation shop between the two speakers?
[05:23.24]10. How's the patient's night?

[06:02.13]12. When did the patient receive the operation?
[06:21.47]Conversation Two
[06:23.74]M: What's the matter with you, then? You look miserable.
[06:26.08]W: It's us.
[06:26.96]M: What do you mean "us"?
[06:28.15]W: Well, we used to talk to each other
[06:29.74]before we were married. Remember?
[06:31.93]M: What do you mean? We're talking now, aren't we?
[06:34.28]W: Oh, yes, but we used to do so much together.
[06:37.09]M: We still go to the cinema together, don't we?
[06:39.12]W: Yes, but we used to go out for walks together. Remember?
[06:42.29]M: Oh, I can remember. It's getting wet in the rain.
[06:45.28]W: And we used to do silly things,
[06:46.76]like running bare foot through the park.
[06:48.42]M: Yes. I remember. I used to catch terrible colds.
[06:51.47]Honestly, you are being totally ridiculous.
[06:53.85]W: But we never used to argue.
[06:55.60]You used to think I was wonderful. Once …
[06:58.56](sound of the door opening)
[06:59.18]Where are you going?
[07:00.79]M: Back to live with my parents.
[07:02.30]That's something else we used to do
[07:03.45]before we were married. Remember?
[07:07.19]Questions 13 to 15 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
[07:12.02]13. Where does this dialogue most probably take place?
[07:31.76]14. What is the relationship between the speakers?
[07:50.95]15. What are the speakers doing?
[08:11.44]Section B
[08:13.56]Passage One
[08:15.74]Sports and games are very useful for character training.
[08:19.01]In their lessons at school,
[08:20.29]boys and girls may learn about such virtues as unselfishness,
[08:24.07]courage, discipline and love of one's country.
[08:27.73]But what is learned in books cannot
[08:29.20]have the same deep effect on a child's character
[08:32.07]as what is learned by experience.
[08:34.79]As most of the pupils' time is spent in classes studying lessons,
[08:39.30]the ordinary day school can't give much practical training
[08:42.34]for their lives in the future.
[08:44.57]So it is what the pupils do in the spare time
[08:47.12]that really prepares them to take their places in society
[08:50.25]as citizens when they grow up.
[08:52.65]If each of them learns to work for his team,
[08:54.89]and not for himself on the football field,
[08:57.31]he will later find it natural to work for the good of his country
[09:00.35]instead of only for his own benefit.
[09:04.93]Questions 16 to 18 are based on the passage you have just heard.
[09:09.63]16. What is the speaker's opinion about learning from books?
[09:29.34]17. Why is ordinary day school
[09:33.16]unable to give pupils much training for their future lives?
[09:51.79]18. What can help develop a child's love of his country
[09:56.36]according to the speaker?
[10:12.70]Passage Two
[10:14.71]A man walked into a bar and asked for a glass of water.
[10:18.00]The girl behind the bar suddenly pulled out a gun and shot him dead.
[10:21.86]Why?
[10:22.62]The reader is asked to offer a reasonable explanation
[10:25.10]for the strange incident.
[10:26.65]All sorts of suggestions are made:
[10:28.58]she recognized him as a dangerous criminal on the run;
[10:31.27]she thought he was about to attack her;
[10:33.24]she misheard what he said;
[10:34.94]asking for a glass of water had a special code meaning for her, and so on.
[10:38.69]All these explanations
[10:39.96]assume that the gun is used deliberately to harm the man.
[10:43.01]It is very easy to be misled by this very obvious idea.
[10:46.66]In fact the explanation is that the man had a bad attack of hiccups,
[10:50.13]which is why he asked for a glass of water.
[10:52.29]The girl behind the bar was actually trying to help him,
[10:54.52]because she knew that a sudden fright could cure hiccups.
[10:57.86]Unknown to her, the gun happened to be loaded that day.
[11:02.23]Questions 19 to 22 are based on the passage you have just heard.
[11:07.18]19. What did the man ask for when he walked into a bar?
[11:26.89]20. Which of the following is not one of the suggestions made?
[11:46.79]21. Which of the following is not true according to the passage?
[12:06.84]22. What didn't the girl know?
[12:25.86]Passage Three
[12:27.68]Doctors are of the opinion that most people
[12:29.98]cannot live beyond 100 years,
[12:32.68]but a growing number of scientists
[12:34.35]believe that the aging process can be controlled.
[12:37.75]There are more than 12,000 Americans over 100 years old
[12:41.59]who receive Social Security benefits,
[12:43.95]and their numbers are increasing each year.
[12:46.87]Dr. James Langley of Chicago claims that,
[12:49.69]theoretically and under ideal conditions,
[12:52.49]animals, including man,
[12:54.45]can live six times longer than their normal period of growth.
[12:58.44]A person's period of growth lasts approximately twenty five years.
[13:02.95]If Dr. Langley's theory is accurate,
[13:05.19]future generation can expect a life span of 150 years.
[13:11.94]Questions 23 to 25 are based on the passage you have just heard.
[13:17.17]23. How many Americans over 100 years old
[13:21.30]receive Social Security benefits?
[13:38.79]24. Which of the following can describe Dr. Langley's theory?
[13:58.89]25. What's the best title for the passage?
[14:20.03]Section C
[14:22.14]Have you traveled on any of the new giant airplanes?
[14:25.17]If you have not been a passenger on one of these planes,
[14:27.82]try to imagine a jet which is more than seventy meters long
[14:31.13]and more than five stories high at the tail.
[14:33.61]Such a plane costs at least twenty five million dollors to build.
[14:37.10]It costs at least $ 6000 to fill this giant with fuel.
[14:40.81]Inside, the giant jet looks more like a great theater than a plane.
[14:44.75]It has six kitchens,
[14:46.00]and they are all needed when the plane is full of passengers.
[14:48.93]The jet holds more than 400 passengers.
[14:51.47]Imagine that number in one jet plane!
[14:54.14]Is there any danger that the jet's engines will fail?
[14:56.93]Fortunately, the palnes appear to be quite safe.
[14:59.48]On each plane there are twice as many engines as the jet needs.
[15:02.93]If two engines fail on the same side,
[15:05.04]the plane can easily use its other engine to land.
[15:08.02]There are also two mechanical pilots to take charge
[15:10.92]if the human pilots cannot fly the plane.

[12:37.75]There are more than 12,000 Americans over 100 years old [12:41.59]who receive Social Security benefits, [12:43.95]and their numbers are increasing each year. [12:46.87]Dr. James Langley of Chicago claims that, [12:49.69]theoretically and under ideal conditions, [12:52.49]animals, including man, [12:54.45]can live six times longer than their normal period of growth. [12:58.44]A person's period of growth lasts approximately twenty five years. [13:02.95]If Dr. Langley's theory is accurate, [13:05.19]future generation can expect a life span of 150 years. [13:11.94]Questions 23 to 25 are based on the passage you have just heard. [13:17.17]23. How many Americans over 100 years old [13:21.30]receive Social Security benefits? [13:38.79]24. Which of the following can describe Dr. Langley's theory? [13:58.89]25. What's the best title for the passage? [14:20.03]Section C [14:22.14]Have you traveled on any of the new giant airplanes? [14:25.17]If you have not been a passenger on one of these planes, [14:27.82]try to imagine a jet which is more than seventy meters long [14:31.13]and more than five stories high at the tail. [14:33.61]Such a plane costs at least twenty five million dollors to build. [14:37.10]It costs at least $ 6000 to fill this giant with fuel. [14:40.81]Inside, the giant jet looks more like a great theater than a plane. [14:44.75]It has six kitchens, [14:46.00]and they are all needed when the plane is full of passengers. [14:48.93]The jet holds more than 400 passengers. [14:51.47]Imagine that number in one jet plane! [14:54.14]Is there any danger that the jet's engines will fail? [14:56.93]Fortunately, the palnes appear to be quite safe. [14:59.48]On each plane there are twice as many engines as the jet needs. [15:02.93]If two engines fail on the same side, [15:05.04]the plane can easily use its other engine to land. [15:08.02]There are also two mechanical pilots to take charge [15:10.92]if the human pilots cannot fly the plane. [15:15.36]Have you traveled on any of the new giant airplanes? [15:19.37]If you have not been a passenger on one of these planes, [15:22.00]try to imagine a jet which is more than seventy meters long [15:27.37]and more than five stories high at the tail. [15:29.83]Such a plane costs at least twenty five million dollors to build. [15:33.38]It costs at least $ 6000 to fill this giant with fuel. [15:37.57]Inside, the giant jet looks more like a great theater than a plane. [15:42.98]It has six kitchens, [15:44.20]and they are all needed when the plane is full of passengers. [15:47.90]The jet holds more than 400 passengers. [15:50.37]Imagine that number in one jet plane! [15:52.97]Is there any danger that the jet's engines will fail? [15:55.69]Fortunately, the palnes appear to be quite safe. [16:00.34]On each plane there are twice as many engines as the jet needs. [16:53.36]If two engines fail on the same side, [16:55.52]the plane can easily use its other engine to land. [17:46.28]There are also two mechanical pilots to take charge [17:49.46]if the human pilots cannot fly the plane. [18:41.65]Have you traveled on any of the new giant airplanes? [18:44.71]If you have not been a passenger on one of these planes, [18:47.28]try to imagine a jet which is more than seventy meters long [18:50.58]and more than five stories high at the tail. [18:53.09]Such a plane costs at least twenty five million dollors to build. [18:56.54]It costs at least $ 6000 to fill this giant with fuel. [19:00.29]Inside, the giant jet looks more like a great theater than a plane. [19:04.18]It has six kitchens, [19:05.45]and they are all needed when the plane is full of passengers. [19:08.36]The jet holds more than 400 passengers. [19:10.93]Imagine that number in one jet plane! [19:13.59]Is there any danger that the jet's engines will fail? [19:16.31]Fortunately, the palnes appear to be quite safe. [19:18.96]On each plane there are twice as many engines as the jet needs. [19:22.35]If two engines fail on the same side, [19:24.48]the plane can easily use its other engine to land. [19:27.45]There are also two mechanical pilots to take charge [19:30.38]if the human pilots cannot fly the plane.
