  Section A

Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken only once. After each question there will be a pause.

  11. W: May I help you?

  M: The sleeves on this jacket are too long. Can you make them shorter?

  Q: What is the job of the woman?

  12. M: Mr. Smith bought some paper, paints and brushes today。

  W: Yes, he needs them for his students at the middle school。

  Q: What does Mr. Smith probably do at school?

  13. W: Look at the note left on the table from the landlord。

  M: What? We can’t afford another twenty dollars a month。

  Q: What will the landlord probably do next?

  14. M: Tom can get enough votes to win the election, can’t he?

  W: Well, if he gets the Asian, the African American, and the Native American special interest groups on his side, he can’t lose, can he?

  Q: What is the woman saying?

  15. W: This looks like the right size tennis racket, doesn’t it? Try a few. I am going to look at the golf clubs。

  M: You’ll come back and help me with this, won’t you?

  Q: Where does this conversation take place?

  16. M: What’s your understanding of creativity?

  W: Let me illustrate my point. Grandma Moses never had an art lesson, yet her paintings are displayed in the galleries。

  Q: What does the woman mean?

  17. M: Tom got a new job again. This was his fifth job this year。

  W: It’s difficult to keep a young man in one job for life nowadays。

  Q: What does the woman mean?

  18. M: Where are you living now? In the same house in New York?

  W: No, we moved to Washington about two months ago, because John got a new job. We’re living in a small flat while we try to find a house。

  Q: Why did the woman move to Washington?

  Now you’ll hear two long conversations。

  Conversation One

  W: Do you travel a lot around the world?

  M: Quite a lot. Yes. I’ve been to many places in the world。

  W: Oh, that must be quite an experience。

  M: Well, in some places I feel, I suppose, somewhat uneasy, but I haven’t lately。

  W: You’ve just returned from Africa?

  M: Yes, I was in Africa recently。

  W: Which countries did you visit?

  M: I was in Zimbabwe and Zambia and South Africa。

  W: There are quite a few people who are crazy about Africa。

  M: I know, but I don’t feel that way at all. But I was very happy there。

  W: But some of the places in Africa, they must be --- they must be very different。

  M: I know what’s on your mind. Right. Some Africa cities can be a little horrible. There are places that I avoid. I don’t like cities generally not because I feel threatened but because I feel confined。

  W: You mean you find cities unsatisfying?

  M: I like being at a street level and looking out to watch the sun set. The idea of a sun setting behind a lot of buildings is what I find unsatisfying. Why should it set just behind a lot of concrete? There is still some sunshine there. I think that’s why I avoid cities. 

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

  19. Why does the man feel uneasy while he is traveling?

  20. Which of the countries didn’t he visit on his last trip to Africa?

  21. What did he feel when he was in Africa?

  22. Why did he find cities unsatisfying?
