  Part III Listening Comprehension

  Section A

  Directions: In this section, you will hear 8 short conversations and 2 long conversations. At the end of each conversation, one or more questions will be asked about what was said. Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken only once. After each question there will be a pause. During the pause, you must read the four choices marked A), B), C) and D), and decide which is the best answer. Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2 with a single line through the centre。

  11. M: I ran into our friend Tom yesterday on the street and he said he hadn’t heard from you for two months。

  W: Yes, I know. But I’ve been too busy to phone him。

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  12. W: You seem very confident about the job interview, don’t you?

  M: Yes, I feel ready for it. I had my hair cut and bought a good suit at the clothing store. I studied almost everything about finance and economics。

  Q: Where is the man probably going to work?

  13. M: I had a hard time getting through this novel。

  W: I share your feeling. Who can remember the names of 38 different characters?

  Q: What does the woman imply?

  14. W: Hello. This is Dr. Gray’s office. We’re calling to remind you of your 5:00 appointment for your annual check-up tomorrow。

  M: Oh, thanks. It’s a good thing you called. I thought it was 5:00 today。

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  15. M: What was the weather like when you left New York last week?

  W: It was very much like the weather here in Beijing. So you needn’t take a lot of clothes if you don’t plan to stay there long。

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?

  16. W: Jerry, can you pick me up after work today? I left my car at the garage。

  M: I’m afraid I can’t. I have scheduled an appointment with my friend at dinner time。

  Q: What is the man going to do?

  17. W: I waited until 10:20 for you。

  M: I must have arrived 8 minutes after you left。

  Q: When did the man arrive?

  18.  M: I’m still waiting for my sister to come back and type the application letter for me。

  W: Why bother her. I’ll show you how to use the computer. It’s quite easy。

  Q: What does the woman mean?

  Now you’ll hear two long conversations。

  Conversation One

  W: Hi. What can I do for you?

  M: Yes, I’d like to return this shirt for a refund. I bought it last week。

  W: Well, could you tell me what seems to be the problem?

  M: The first time I washed and dried it, the thing shrank at least four sizes。

  W: Oh, I see, don’t you follow the washing instructions? You see on the label: to hand wash it then to dry it on low heat。

  M: How do I know this? The label is written in French!

  W: I’m sorry to hear that. But what I can do is allow you to exchange the shirt for another one。

  M: I don’t want to exchange it for anything! I just want my money back。

  W: Well, I can give you credit on your next purchase or a discount and since the item you purchased was on clearance, we can’t give you a refund。

  M: What? A clearance item! I don’t know about this。

  W: I guess you didn’t read our ad. Look here is the ad and the information about the clearance sale is at the bottom。

  M:  Where? Where? That small print! You need an electron microscope to see those words。

  W: And anyway, you can only return items with a receipt within six days, but unfortunately, that was yesterday in your case。

  M: Ok. Ok. I give up. Take your shirt. You can open up a pet store and sell it as a cat shirt。

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

  19. Why did the man want to return the shirt?

  20. What did the store clerk not offer to do for the man?

  21. Which of the following is not the reason that the store clerk didn’t return the money to the customer?

  22. How about the result?
