[00:02.05]Test Six
[00:04.30]Section A
[00:06.54]1. W: The admission price is $10 per person.
[00:11.00]That's really expensive for just one show.
[00:13.54]M: You're right. But if you have a student card,
[00:15.69]you'll get in for $3.
[00:18.20]Q: How much will a student have to pay for the show?
[00:38.35]2. W: Excuse me, sir, but have you seen a young gentleman
[00:42.67]looking for his wrist watch?
[00:44.59]M: A young man, Madam?
[00:47.13]Q: What's the woman doing?
[01:06.39]3. M: Excuse me, is this the right way to Washington University?
[01:11.45]W: No, I'm afraid not. You need to take Kennedy Highway.
[01:14.71]Go down this road to get there.
[01:17.61]Q: Where does the conversation most likely take place?
[01:38.42]4.M: The town hasn't changed much since the war.
[01:42.56]W: There is a bank where the temple used to be.
[01:45.80]Q: Has there been any change in the town?
[02:05.90]5.W: Hey, I've got two tickets for the baseball game on Saturday.
[02:10.71]Do you want to go?
[02:11.71]M: Oh, I'd really like to, but I can't.
[02:13.84]I've got to work this Saturday.
[02:16.43]Q: What game are the tickets for?
[02:35.77]6.M: Are you sure you've corrected all the typing errors in this paper?
[02:40.94]W: Perhaps I'd better read it through again.
[02:44.13]Q: What's the woman going to do?
[03:03.77]7. W: Robert, why were you absent from class yesterday?
[03:08.81]M: I'm sorry, Miss Smith.
[03:10.19]I was running a temperature yesterday and went to see a doctor.
[03:14.32]Q: What's the relationship between the two speakers?
[03:34.92]8. W: I'm tired of the movies about romantic stories.
[03:39.20]M: Let's go and see a new film at the Royal Theatre.
[03:41.73]I hear it's a real story of two prison breakers.
[03:45.50]Q: What kind of movie does the woman find boring?
[04:06.21]Conversation One
[04:08.46]W: What did you do during the earthquake, James?
[04:10.66]M: Stayed in bed.
[04:11.98]W: What do you mean? Didn't you try to get outside?
[04:14.53]M: No. I'd got terrible flu, so I just stayed in bed.
[04:17.59]W: So what happened?
[04:18.82]M: Well, I must have slept through the first earthquake
[04:21.33]although nobody believes me.
[04:22.86]They said it was so noisy.
[04:24.54]Then I woke up about four in the morning.
[04:26.56]Still feeling terrible with the flu.
[04:28.41]Eyes running, nose running.
[04:30.21]You know how you feel when you've got the flu.
[04:32.14]W: Don't I just. I've been lucky so far this year, though.
[04:35.71]M: So I decided to get up and make a cup of tea.
[04:38.29]I'd just got into the kitchen
[04:39.58]when I started to feel all unsteady on my feet.
[04:42.12]Then I got this roaring noise in my ears.
[04:44.44]I still thought it was the flu, you see.
[04:46.43]W: So what happened then?
[04:47.85]M: Well, I slowly realised that it wasn't me feeling dizzy
[04:50.82]and the noises weren't in my head.
[04:52.70]I heard the people upstairs screaming.
[04:54.78]The wooden floor started moving up and down,
[04:57.15]the doors and windows started rattling and banging,
[04:59.71]all the kitchen cupboards were thrown open
[05:01.51]and cups and saucers came crashing to the floor,
[05:04.30]the kitchen clock fell from the wall …
[05:06.28]W: Well what did you do?
[05:07.88]M: What could I do? I just stood there and watched.
[05:10.22]W: Why didn't you try to get out?
[05:11.88]M: Oh, I couldn't be bothered.
[05:13.34]I was feeling so terrible with the flu.
[05:15.60]I just went back to my bedroom.
[05:17.44]Some books had fallen from the bookcase
[05:19.62]and that little porcelain vase had rolled to the floor
[05:22.52]but fortunately didn't break.
[05:24.58]I even had to look for my transistor radio under the bed.
[05:27.83]I picked it up and switched it on
[05:29.82]and they were telling people to go and sleep in the parks.
[05:32.54]W: So why didn't you?
[05:33.76]M: I told you, I was feeling too ill.
[05:36.16]And the nearest park is a long walk from my flat.
[05:39.08]And I didn't want to be with a lot of people.
[05:41.40]So I just stayed in bed and hoped for the best.
[05:44.02]I didn't really think the house was going to fall down around me.
[05:47.07]Though several did, I found out later.
[05:49.38]W: Yes. I was sitting in a cafe when the first one started
[05:52.75]and the whole place started to shake.
[05:54.78]People were running and screaming and pushing to get out…
[06:00.13]Questions 9 to 12 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
[06:04.92]9. What did the man do during the earthquake?
[06:24.78]10. What was wrong with the man?
[06:44.12]11. What happened to the man during the first earthquake?
[07:04.50]12. What was the time when the man woke up?
[07:24.47]Conversation Two
[07:26.67]M: Mr. Radford has just dropped in for a quick lunch.
[07:30.51]W: A table for one, sir?
[07:31.92]M: Yes, please.
[07:33.20]W: Are you having the set lunch?
[07:34.65]M: Yes.
[07:35.73]W: What would you like to start with?
[07:37.22]M: What's the soup of the day?
[07:38.53]W: Mushroom.
[07:39.17]M: Yes, please. I'll have that.
[07:40.65]W: And for your main course?
[07:42.12]M: The plaice, I think, and apple tart to follow.
[07:45.49]W: Would you like something to drink with your meal?
[07:47.45]M: Yes. A lager please.
[07:49.62]W: Thank you.
[07:52.35]Questions 13 to 15 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
[07:57.20]13. With whom is Mr. Radford having his lunch?
[08:17.62]14. What's Mr. Radford having?
[08:37.24]15. Which food is not mentioned in the conversation?
[08:59.75]Section B
[09:02.03]Passage One
[09:04.19]A six year old boy has been found alive
[09:06.31]after spending four days and five nights in an icebox
[09:09.22]that was buried under tons of ruins in Thursday's big earthquake.
[09:13.28]The boy, Tom, was found early yesterday in the village of Sum,
[09:17.01]as rescuers were working to pull his father
[09:19.19]out of the ruins of their home.
[09:21.47]Hearing a faint cry of "Get me out, get me out,"
[09:24.60]rescuers dug down another 1.5 metres
[09:27.78]and found the boy in the icebox.
[09:30.23]He was pronounced in a good condition,
[09:31.92]suffering only four or five slight wounds.
[09:35.23]Tom's eight brothers and sisters died in the earthquake
[09:37.86]which officials say may have killed as many as 50,000 people.
[09:42.44]By Sunday, foreign doctors were leaving the earthquake areas,
[09:45.48]as hope had faded of finding any more survivors.
[09:50.76]Questions 16 to 18 are based on the passage you have just heard.
[09:55.32]16. What happened to the boy in the earthquake?
[10:15.17]17. How many days had passed before the boy was rescued?
[10:35.97]18. How did the boy survive the big earthquake?
[10:56.27]Passage Two
[10:58.31]Spacemen have to be specially trained for travelling in space.
[11:01.97]They should be in very good mental and physical health.
[11:04.93]Most of them are experienced pilots of very fast aeroplanes.
[11:08.91]All spacemen have to do various space exercises
[11:11.41]before travelling to space.
[11:13.75]They have to be strong enough
[11:14.97]to bear the great pressures they will feel at launching and landing.
[11:19.03]When travelling in space or orbiting round a planet,
[11:21.66]spacemen have to become used to the weightless conditions
[11:25.21]and learn how to walk, eat, drink and sleep
[11:27.74]in a condition of weightlessness.
[11:30.00]They train for their space travels in model spacecraft
[11:33.30]which are like the actual spacecraft.
[11:35.32]Spacemen also have to know
[11:36.75]all about the various parts of their spacecraft.
[11:39.42]They should be able to repair any part
[11:41.00]that is damaged while travelling.
[11:43.36]When man goes into space he must take air, food and water.
[11:46.86]He must also get rid of bad air and waste matter.
[11:49.94]Food is prepared in a paste form and kept in tubes.
[11:53.27]Waste is stored in containers
[11:54.61]and got rid of when the spacecraft reaches the Earth.
[11:57.81]These problems have been solved for short space trips,
[12:00.62]but not for long trips.
[12:04.08]Questions 19 to 22 are based on the passage you have just heard.
[12:09.04]19. What do spacemen need for space travelling?
[12:29.47]20. What do spacemen have to become used to?
[12:49.45]21. Where do they train for their space travels?
[13:09.61]22. Which of the following is not the necessary thing
[13:13.91]that spacemen must take?
[13:31.61]Passage Three
[13:33.73]An oil tanker is a long, flat ship.
[13:36.35]It has very large tanks. They are like iron boxes.
[13:40.12]Men can fill the tanks with oil.
[13:42.32]A tanker can carry oil many miles across the sea.
[13:46.10]There are not many sailors on an oil tanker.
[13:49.31]Machines can do most of the work.
[13:51.18]Usually there are no passengers.
[13:53.49]People do not like to travel on an oil tanker.
[13:56.31]Oil burns very easily, so it is dangerous.
[13:59.74]Sometimes an oil tanker catches fire at sea.
[14:03.07]Then the sailors are burnt or drowned.
[14:05.37]Sometimes a tanker hits a rock and breaks.
[14:08.56]Then oil comes out of the tanks.
[14:10.75]It does not sink to the bottom of the sea.
[14:12.94]It floats on the water like a thick, black sheet.
[14:16.03]It kills fish and sea birds.
[14:18.45]The oil floats to the shore.
[14:20.40]It sticks to the sand and stones.
[14:22.90]People cannot play on the beach then.
[14:24.91]They cannot swim in the sea.
[14:28.83]Questions 23 to 25 are based on the passage you have just heard.
[14:33.70]23. Why are there only a few sailors on a tanker?
[14:54.73]24. What kills fish at sea according to the passage?
[15:15.60]25. What happens if oil comes out of the ship?
[15:37.83]Section C
[15:39.88]From Monday until Friday,
[15:41.19]most people are busy working or studying,
[15:43.61]but in the evenings and on weekends
[15:45.55]they are free to relax and enjoy themselves.
[15:47.93]Some watch television or go to the movies,
[15:50.26]others participate in sports.
[15:51.95]It depends on individual interests.
[15:54.15]There are many different ways to spend our spare time.
[15:57.13]Almost everyone has some kinds of hobby.
[15:59.87]It may be anything from collecting stamps to making model airplanes.
[16:03.52]Some hobbies are very expensive,
[16:05.53]but others don't cost anything at all.
[16:07.53]Some collections are worth a lot of money,
[16:09.50]while others are valuable only to their owners.
[16:12.08]I know a man who has a coin collection worth several thousand dollars.
[16:15.66]A short time ago he bought a rare fifty cent piece worth $250!
[16:20.35]He was happy about his purchase
[16:22.08]and thought the price was reasonable.
[16:23.89]On the other hand, my youngest sister collects matchboxes.
[16:26.99]She has almost 600 of them
[16:28.82]but I doubt if they are worth any money.
[16:31.30]However, to my sister they are extremely valuable.
[16:34.12]Nothing makes her happier
[16:35.17]than to find a new matchbox of her collection.
[16:38.60]That's what a hobby means, I guess.
[16:40.40]It is something we like to do in our spare time simply for the fun of it.
[16:43.84]The value in dollars is not important,
[16:45.78]but the pleasure it gives us is.
[16:49.98]From Monday until Friday,

A lager please. [07:49.62]W: Thank you. [07:52.35]Questions 13 to 15 are based on the conversation you have just heard. [07:57.20]13. With whom is Mr. Radford having his lunch? [08:17.62]14. What's Mr. Radford having? [08:37.24]15. Which food is not mentioned in the conversation? [08:59.75]Section B [09:02.03]Passage One [09:04.19]A six year old boy has been found alive [09:06.31]after spending four days and five nights in an icebox [09:09.22]that was buried under tons of ruins in Thursday's big earthquake. [09:13.28]The boy, Tom, was found early yesterday in the village of Sum, [09:17.01]as rescuers were working to pull his father [09:19.19]out of the ruins of their home. [09:21.47]Hearing a faint cry of "Get me out, get me out," [09:24.60]rescuers dug down another 1.5 metres [09:27.78]and found the boy in the icebox. [09:30.23]He was pronounced in a good condition, [09:31.92]suffering only four or five slight wounds. [09:35.23]Tom's eight brothers and sisters died in the earthquake [09:37.86]which officials say may have killed as many as 50,000 people. [09:42.44]By Sunday, foreign doctors were leaving the earthquake areas, [09:45.48]as hope had faded of finding any more survivors. [09:50.76]Questions 16 to 18 are based on the passage you have just heard. [09:55.32]16. What happened to the boy in the earthquake? [10:15.17]17. How many days had passed before the boy was rescued? [10:35.97]18. How did the boy survive the big earthquake? [10:56.27]Passage Two [10:58.31]Spacemen have to be specially trained for travelling in space. [11:01.97]They should be in very good mental and physical health. [11:04.93]Most of them are experienced pilots of very fast aeroplanes. [11:08.91]All spacemen have to do various space exercises [11:11.41]before travelling to space. [11:13.75]They have to be strong enough [11:14.97]to bear the great pressures they will feel at launching and landing. [11:19.03]When travelling in space or orbiting round a planet, [11:21.66]spacemen have to become used to the weightless conditions [11:25.21]and learn how to walk, eat, drink and sleep [11:27.74]in a condition of weightlessness. [11:30.00]They train for their space travels in model spacecraft [11:33.30]which are like the actual spacecraft. [11:35.32]Spacemen also have to know [11:36.75]all about the various parts of their spacecraft. [11:39.42]They should be able to repair any part [11:41.00]that is damaged while travelling. [11:43.36]When man goes into space he must take air, food and water. [11:46.86]He must also get rid of bad air and waste matter. [11:49.94]Food is prepared in a paste form and kept in tubes. [11:53.27]Waste is stored in containers [11:54.61]and got rid of when the spacecraft reaches the Earth. [11:57.81]These problems have been solved for short space trips, [12:00.62]but not for long trips. [12:04.08]Questions 19 to 22 are based on the passage you have just heard. [12:09.04]19. What do spacemen need for space travelling? [12:29.47]20. What do spacemen have to become used to? [12:49.45]21. Where do they train for their space travels? [13:09.61]22. Which of the following is not the necessary thing [13:13.91]that spacemen must take? [13:31.61]Passage Three [13:33.73]An oil tanker is a long, flat ship. [13:36.35]It has very large tanks. They are like iron boxes. [13:40.12]Men can fill the tanks with oil. [13:42.32]A tanker can carry oil many miles across the sea. [13:46.10]There are not many sailors on an oil tanker. [13:49.31]Machines can do most of the work. [13:51.18]Usually there are no passengers. [13:53.49]People do not like to travel on an oil tanker. [13:56.31]Oil burns very easily, so it is dangerous. [13:59.74]Sometimes an oil tanker catches fire at sea. [14:03.07]Then the sailors are burnt or drowned. [14:05.37]Sometimes a tanker hits a rock and breaks. [14:08.56]Then oil comes out of the tanks. [14:10.75]It does not sink to the bottom of the sea. [14:12.94]It floats on the water like a thick, black sheet. [14:16.03]It kills fish and sea birds. [14:18.45]The oil floats to the shore. [14:20.40]It sticks to the sand and stones. [14:22.90]People cannot play on the beach then. [14:24.91]They cannot swim in the sea. [14:28.83]Questions 23 to 25 are based on the passage you have just heard. [14:33.70]23. Why are there only a few sailors on a tanker? [14:54.73]24. What kills fish at sea according to the passage? [15:15.60]25. What happens if oil comes out of the ship? [15:37.83]Section C [15:39.88]From Monday until Friday, [15:41.19]most people are busy working or studying, [15:43.61]but in the evenings and on weekends [15:45.55]they are free to relax and enjoy themselves. [15:47.93]Some watch television or go to the movies, [15:50.26]others participate in sports. [15:51.95]It depends on individual interests. [15:54.15]There are many different ways to spend our spare time. [15:57.13]Almost everyone has some kinds of hobby. [15:59.87]It may be anything from collecting stamps to making model airplanes. [16:03.52]Some hobbies are very expensive, [16:05.53]but others don't cost anything at all. [16:07.53]Some collections are worth a lot of money, [16:09.50]while others are valuable only to their owners. [16:12.08]I know a man who has a coin collection worth several thousand dollars. [16:15.66]A short time ago he bought a rare fifty cent piece worth $250! [16:20.35]He was happy about his purchase [16:22.08]and thought the price was reasonable. [16:23.89]On the other hand, my youngest sister collects matchboxes. [16:26.99]She has almost 600 of them [16:28.82]but I doubt if they are worth any money. [16:31.30]However, to my sister they are extremely valuable. [16:34.12]Nothing makes her happier [16:35.17]than to find a new matchbox of her collection. [16:38.60]That's what a hobby means, I guess. [16:40.40]It is something we like to do in our spare time simply for the fun of it. [16:43.84]The value in dollars is not important, [16:45.78]but the pleasure it gives us is. [16:49.98]From Monday until Friday, [16:51.26]most people are busy working or studying, [16:53.54]but in the evenings and on weekends [16:56.64]they are free to relax and enjoy themselves.
