  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. W: Did you hear Kate’s presentation in the meeting last night?

  M: How she could be so calm in front of such a large audience is really beyond me。

  Q: What does the man imply?

  12. M: I heard there are a few seats left for the show tonight。

  W: Really? I was under the impression that the tickets were sold out a long time ago。

  Q: What do we know from the woman’s reply?

  13. M: I’m having trouble making ends meet. Now it looks like I have to make another phone call to my parents。

  W: I don’t think it would be a problem if you cut down on the discs you buy。

  Q: What does the woman mean?

  14. M: Congratulations! I heard your debating team has reached the finals。

  W: Yes, we’re all excited about it. Now we’re working hard to prepare for it。

  Q: What will the woman’ s team probably do?

  15. W: You’ve spent too much time doing coursework, Jack. Do you think you should go out and get some fresh air?

  M: Thanks for the advice. But this is how I relieve my stress. I’d rather not get too far behind。

  Q: What can you infer from the man’s response?

  16. M: You seem very confident about the job interview, aren’t you?

  W: Yes. I feel ready for it. I bought a good suit at the clothing store. I had my hair cut. I have studied almost every thing about finance and economics。

  Q: Where is the woman probably going to work?

  17. W: My English teacher suggested that I come in and borrow a German-English Dictionary。

  M: Of course, Miss Helen. You’re welcome to use our dictionaries, but they may not be taken out of the library. Wouldn’t it be better if you had one of your own?

  Q: What does the man suggest Helen do?

  18. M: Excuse me, professor. Could you please explain about temperature and road conditions again?

  W: Very well, as soon as I’ve checked these figures on the board and assigned tomorrow’s homework。

  Q: Where did the conversation most probably take place?

  Now you’ll hear two long conversations。

  Conversation One

  M: Are you going to watch the game in the stadium?

  W: No, but I’ll be watching it on television with some friends。

  M: Weren’t you able to get any tickets?

  W: I didn’t try. I really don’t go to games very often。

  M: But don’t you enjoy going? Don’t you find it exciting to be part of the crowd?

  W: Oh, sure, nothing beats the atmosphere at a sporting event: the cheering, all that energy. But sometimes it’s just too inconvenient getting into and out of the stadium before and after the game. And if you watch the game with friends, or at a bar or restaurant…

  M: …you’ve basically created your own crowd。

  W: That’s right. Another reason why I like to watch sports on television is that I simply find it easier to follow the action on TV。

  M: Yeah, sometimes it is a little difficult to keep track of the ball when you’re sitting in the stands。

  W: Especially when your seats are high up in the grandstand, and far from the field。

  M: It’s like you’re watching from an airplane, sometimes。

  W: Also, good sports commentators on television can add to your understanding and enjoyment of the game。

  M: After listening to you I’m starting to wonder how they are able to sell any tickets to these games!

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

  19. What are the two speakers talking about?

  20. What does the woman say about watching the game in the stadium?

  21. Why does the woman prefer to watch the game on TV?
