today。

  M: Certainly, that would be fine. Uh, you can either drop it off at
my class or bring it to my office。

  W: I really enjoy that piece you just play on the piano. I bet you
get a lot of requests for it。

  W: Would it be all right to come by your office around 4:00? I’m
afraid I can’t come any earlier because I have three classes this
afternoon。

  M: You said it. People just can’t get enough of it。

  M: Uh, I won’t be here when you come. I’m supposed to be at a
meeting from 3:00 to 6:00, but how about leaving it with my secretary?
She usually stays until 5:00.

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  W: Fine, please tell her I’ll be there at 4:00. And Dr. Ellis, one
more thing, could you tell me where your office is? Janet told me where
your class is, but she didn’t give me directions to your office。

  Section B

  M: Well, I’m in Room 302 of the Gregory Building. I’ll tell my
secretary to put the paper in my mail box, and I’ll get it when I
return。

  Questions 19-22 are based on the conversation you have just
heard。

  W: I sure appreciate it. Goodbye, Dr. Ellis。

  W: Good afternoon, Mr. Jones. I am Teresa Chen, and I’ll be
interviewing you. How are you today?

  M: Goodbye, Ms. Johnson。

  M: I am fine, thank you. And you, Miss Chen?

  Questions 9 to 11 are based on the conversation you have just
heard。

  W: Good, Thanks. Can you tell me something about your experience in
this kind of work?

  9. Why couldn’t the woman’s roommate attend the Shakespearean
English class that afternoon?

  M: Well, for several years, I managed a department for the
Brownstone Company in Detroit, Michigan. Now I work part time because I
also go to school at night. I’m getting a business degree。

  10. What favor is the woman going to do for her roommate?

  W: Oh, how interesting. Tell me, why do you want to leave your
present job?

  11. What does the woman want to know at the end of the conversation?

  M: I’ll finish school in a few months, and I’d like a full-time
position with more responsibility。

  Conversation two

  W: And why would you like to work for our company?

  W: How are things going, Roald?

  M: Because I know your company’s work and I like it。

  M: Not bad, Jane. I’m involved in several projects and it’s a long
working day. But I’m used to that so it doesn’t bother me too much。

  W: Could you please tell me about your special skills and interests?

  W: I heard you have moved to a new house in the suburb. How do you
like commuting to London every day? Don’t you find it a string?

  M: Of course, I’m good at computers and I can speak Spanish. I used
to take classes in Spanish at the local college. And I like travelling a
lot。

  M: It was terrible at first, especially getting up before dawn to
catch that 6:30 train. But it’s bearable now that I’ m used to it。

  W: Can you give me any references?

  W: Don’t you think it’s an awful waste of time? I couldn’t bear to
spend three hours sitting in a train every day。

  M: Yes, certainly. You can talk to Mr. McCaw, my boss, at the
Brownstone Company. I could also give you the names and numbers of
several of my teachers。

  M: I used to feel the same as you. But now I quite enjoy it。

  W: All right, Mr. Jones, and would you like to ask me any questions?

  W: How do you pass the time? Do you bring some work with you to do
on the train?

  M: Yes, I wonder when I’ll be informed about my application for the
job。

  M: Ah, that’s a good question. In the morning, I just sit in comfort
and read the papers to catch up with the news. On the way home at night,
I relax with a good book or chat with friends or even have a game of
bridge。

  W: Well, we’ll let you know as soon as possible. Let’s stay in
touch. Thank you very much for coming this afternoon。

  W: I suppose you know lots of people on the train now。

  M: Thank you。

  M: Yes, I bumped into someone I know on the platform every day. Last
week I came across a couple of old school friends and we spend the
entire journey in the bar。

  Questions 23-25 are based on the conversation you have just

  M: Lisa, Lisa! Over here, darling! It’s wonderful to see you. Oh,
Lisa, you look marvelous。

  Section B

  W: Oh, Paul, you look tired. Two months away in the capital? Paul, I
think you’ve been working too hard。

  Directions: In this section, you will hear 3 short passages. At the
end of each passage, you will hear some questions. Both the passages and
the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a question, you
must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C)
and D ). Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 1 with a
single line through the centre。

  M: I’m fine. The city is very hot this time of the year. It’s good
to get back to some fresh air. You know, Lisa, what they say about
pregnant women really is true。

  Passage One

  W: What’s that Paul?

  Most American college students need to be efficient readers. This is
necessary because full-time students probably have to read several
hundred pages every week. They don’t have time to read a chapter three
or four times. They need to extract as much information as possible from
the first or second reading。

  M: They say they look beautiful。

  An extraordinarily important study skill is knowing how to mark a
book. Students mark the main ideas and important details with a pen or
pencil, yellow or blue or orange. Some students mark new vocabulary in a
different color. Most students write questions or short notes in the
margins. Marking a book is a useful skill, but it’s important to do it
right. First, read a chapter with one pen in your hand and others next
to you on the desk. Second, read a whole paragraph before you mark
anything. Don’t mark too much. Usually you will mark about 10% of a
passage. Third, decide on your own system for marking. For example,
maybe you will mark main ideas in yellow, important details in blue and
new words in orange. Maybe you will put question marks in the margin
when you don’t understand something and before an exam. Instead, you
just need to review your marks and you can save a lot of time。

  W: Well, I had a lot of tension while you’ve been studying hard on
your course in D.C。

  16. What should American college students do to cope with their
heavy reading assignments?

  M: Oh?

  17. What suggestion does the speaker give about marking a textbook?

  W: Oh, don’t worry, all from a man over 50. Father has told all his
business friends the good news about the baby. And the phone hasn’t
stopped ringing。

  18. How should students prepare for an exam according to the
speaker?

  M: Oh, look, darling. There’s a taxi。

  Passage Two

  W: Paul, tell me about the special project you mentioned on the
phone. You sounded very excited about it!

  The thought of having no sleep for 24 hours or more isn’t a pleasant
one for most people. The amount of sleep that each person needs varies.
In general, each of us needs about 8 hours of sleep each day to keep us
healthy and happy. Some people, however, can get by with just a few
hours of sleep at night。

  M: You know, I’ve learned a lot from the project. I’m surprised that
was still in business。

  It doesn’t matter when or how much a person sleeps. But everyone
needs some rest to stay alive. Few doctors would have thought that there
might be an exception to this. Sleep is, after all, a very basic need.
But a man named Al Herpin turned out to be a real exception, for
supposedly, he never slept!

  W: That’s because we have a wonderful sales manager ——you!

  Al Herpin was 90 years old when doctors came to his home in New
Jersy. They hoped to challenge the claim that he never slept. But they
were surprised. Though they watched him every hour of the day, they
never saw Herpin sleeping. He did not even own a bed. He never needed
one。

  M: Thanks. But that’s not the problem at all. Lisa, our little
company, and it is little compared to the giants in the city. Our little
company’s in danger. We are out of date.We need to expand. If we don’t,
we will be swallowed up by one of the giants。

  The closest that Herpin came to resting was to sit in a rocking
chair and read a half dozen newspapers. His doctors were puzzled by the
strange case of permanent sleeplessness. Herpin offered the only clue to
his condition. He remembered some talk about his mother having been
injured several days before he had been born. Herpin died at the age of
94, never, it seems, having slept at all。

  Questions 23-25 are based on the conversation you have just
heard。

  19. What is taken for granted by most people?

  23. What do we learn about Lisa?

  20. What do doctors think of Al Herpin’s case?

  24. What do we learn about the man from the conversation?

  21. What could have accounted for Al Herpin’s sleeplessness?

  25. What does the man say about his company?

  Passage Three

  Section C

  Hetty Green was a very spoiled, only child. She was born in
Massachusetts USA in 1835. Her father was a millionaire businessman. Her
mother was often ill, and so from the age of two her father took her
with him to work and taught her about stocks and shares. At the age of
six she started reading the daily financial newspapers and opened her
own bank account. Her father died when she was 21 and she inherited 7.5
million dollars. She went to New York and invested on Wall Street. Hetty
saved every penny, eating in the cheapest restaurants for 15 cents. She
became one of the richest and most hated women in the world. At 33 she
married Edward Green, a multi-millionaire, and had two children, Ned and
Sylvia。

  Passage 1

  Hetty’s meanness was well-known. She always argued about prices in
shops. She walked to the local grocery store to buy broken biscuits
which were much cheaper, and to get a free bone for her much loved dog.
Once she lost a two-cent stamp and spent the night looking for it. She
never bought clothes and always wore the same long, ragged black skirt.
Worst of all, when her son, Ned, fell and injured his knee, she refused
to pay for a doctor and spent hours looking for free medical help. In
the end Ned lost his leg. When she died in 1916 she left her children
100 million dollars. Her daughter built a hospital with her money。

  Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just
heard。

  22. What do we learn about Hetty Green as a child?

  Farmington, Utah, is a more pleasant community since a local girls’
4-H club improved Main Street. Six 4-H girls worked to clean the 72 foot
curbside that was covered with weeds, rocks and trash. Each member
volunteered to clean up and to dig in plot, five flats of flowers. They
also took terms in watering, weeding and maintaining the plot.
Participation in this project helped the girls developed a new attitude
towards their parents of their own homes; they’ve learned how to work
with tools, and improve their work habits. One mother said that before
her daughter was involved in this project, she would not even pour a
weed. The experience on Main Street stimulated self-improvement, and
encouraged members to take pride in their home grounds and the total
community. City officials cooperated with the 4-H members in planting
trees, building cooking facilities, pick-me tables, swings and public
rest rooms. The 4-H girls planted trees and took care of them during the
early stages of growth. The total park project needed more plantings in
the following years. Members of the 4-H club agreed to follow the
project through to completion, because they receive satisfaction from
the results of constructive work. The project is a growing one and is
spread from the park to the school and the shopping center. Trees and
flowers have all been planted in the shopping center, making the
atmosphere pleasant。

  23. How did Hetty Green become rich overnight?

  Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just
heard。

  24. Why was Hetty Green much hated?

  26. What do we learn about Main Street in Farmington?

  27. What do the 4-H club members do about the curbside?

 

  28. What have the 4-H girls learned from the project?

  29. Why do the 4-H girls agree to follow the park project through to
complete。

  Question 30 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  Passage 2

  According to a survey on reading conducted in 2001 by the U.S.
National Education Association (NEA), young Americans say reading is
important, more important than computers and science. Over 50% of the 12
to 18 years old interviewed say they enjoy reading a lot. 79% find it
stimulating and interesting. And 87% think it is relaxing. About 68% of
those surveyed disagreed with the opinion that reading is boring or
old-fashioned。

  Over half teenagers interviewed said they read more than ten books a
year. The results also show that middle school students read more books
than high schoolers. Over 66% of teens like to read fiction, such as
novels and stories. Over 26% are interested in non-fiction, such history
books.64% of students listed reading stories about people my own age.
That’s a favorite topic. Mysteries and detective stories came second on
the list at 53%. Just under 50% said they were interested in reading
about their own culture in tradition. Of the teenagers who participated
in the survey, 49% said that libraries are where they get most of their
books. However, many complain that their school libraries do not have
enough up-to-date interesting books and magazines. Even though many
teenagers in the US enjoy reading, they still have other interests. When
asked which activity would be the most difficult to give up for a week,
48% said listening to music. TV would be difficult to give up for 25% of
those surveyed。

  Question 30 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  30. What does the survey on teenager reading show?

  31. What books are most popular among teenagers according to the
survey?

  32. What activity do teenagers find the most difficult to give up
for a week?

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  Passage 3

  Thank you for coming, everyone. Today’s presentation will show how
we see the development of the motor car in the short to medium term, and
that is why we have invited all of you here today. Let’s start with
power. It’s clear that petrol-driven engines have no future. Already
there are many alternative fuel vehicles on the market, powered by
anything from solar power to natural gas. Some independent thinkers have
even produced cars that run on vegetable oil. But as we all know, of all
these alternative fuel vehicles, the most practical are electric
vehicles. Sure, in the past electric vehicles have their problems,
namely, a limited driving range, and very few recharging points, which
limited their use. Now, however, recent developments in electric vehicle
technology mean they can match conventional petrol engines in terms of
performance and safety. Let’s not forget that electric vehicles are
cleaner. Plus, importantly, the power source is rechargeable, so this
does not involve using any valuable resources. Moving on to
communications, very soon, cars will be linked to GPS satellites, so
they’ll do all the driving for you. What controls remain for the users
will be audio-based, so, for example, you’ll just have to say “a bit
warmer”, and the air conditioning will adjust automatically. You’ll
also be able to receive email, music and movies, all via an internet
link. So just type in the destination you want, sit back, sleep, watch
your movie, whatever。

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  33. What is the presentation mainly about?

  34. What used to restrict the use of electric vehicles?

  35. What does the speaker say about electric vehicles of today?
