  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: So we're meeting at eight-thirty in front of the hall, right?

  W: Well, how about thirty minutes earlier? Would you like to get something to eat before the concert?

  Q: What does the woman suggest?

  12. M: I don't know, Jane--- things seem to be going from bad to worse. Some times I get the feeling that they just seem to take me for granted. If only I had a job or something---then at least I'd feel I was really doing something。

  W: Well, you know, Tom, I quite understand you。

  Q: What have you learned about the man?

  13. M: I heard on the news that the ocean is twice as dirty as it was a few years ago。

  W: That's upsetting. It's frightening to see the environment being destroyed. I've never understood why some people would want to destroy it。

  Q: What are they talking about?

  14. W: What's wrong with your car? I was told that it was stolen. Others said that it was broken. I hurried here to find that it wasn't here。

  M: It's a mistake. Susan borrowed mine because she had an accident and broke hers。

  Q: What does the man mean?

  15. W: Here's this week's schedule. On Monday, there's the board meeting. Your speech at the Lion' s Club is on Tuesday. Then, on Wednesday, you're supposed to see the dentist。

  M: I'm glad I don't have to travel to the business conference until next week。

  Q: What will the man do on Tuesday?

  16. M: They may be proud of their new facility, but frankly, I'm disappointed. The nurses are friendly, but everything seems to be running behind schedule。

  W: Not to mention the fact that it' s noisy because no one observes visiting hours。

  Q: What are the people in the dialogue discussing?

  17. M: I'm tired of Bill's remarks. I don't know why he wants to look at everything in such a negative way。

  W: Why don' t you do what I do, John, and take his comments with a grain of salt?

  Q: According to the woman, what should John do about Bill?

  18. M: Your new dresses are beautiful. Where did you find them?

  W: Well, I bought three of them while I was on vacation in Chicago, but I made the other one myself。

  Q: What can we conclude from the above conversation?

  Now you’ll hear two long conversations。

  Conversation One

  M: Hey. Have you ever heard of the Oscars, or Academy Awards?

  W: Well, I should say I’ve done more than hear of them. I know them quite well. The Academy Awards, or Oscars, are given every year in the United States by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for excellence in the creation and production of motion pictures. First presented in 1929, the Oscars are among the film industry’s most desired prizes。

  M: That seems very interesting. I wonder whether you know the principal categories for Academy Awards winners。

  W: They include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Foreign Language Film, Best Special Effects, Best Sound, Best Musical score, etc。

  M: Oh, it seems quite inclusive。

  W: But not too many people can get one during their lifetime. And for most award categories, a maximum of five entrants are first nominated by the academy members who are in that particular field. That is, actors select actors, directors select directors and so on. From among these nominees, all academy members select the winner by a secret ballot. The winners are publicly announced at a formal ceremony each spring。

  M: Yeah. That’s really competitive, but what will each winner get? A certain amount of bonus?

  W: No. Actually, a gold plated bronze human figure created by the American sculptor George Stanley will be awarded to each winner。

  M: Oh, I see. Thank you for your explanation. How do you know all this?

  W: Well, last semester I took a course in the history of film。

  Questions 19 to 21 are based on the conversation you have just heard。

  19. Who will select the Best Actress winner in the Academy Awards?

  20. Who was George Stanley?

  21. How does the woman know so much about the Oscar Awards?
