  Section A


  M. Good news! I'm not going to have surgery after all. The doctor says I can start working out again soon, and maybe play football like before in a few weeks.

  W: That's terrific! It will be great if you can get back in shape in time for the World Cup.

  Q: What do we learn from the conversation?


  M: I really need to make some extra money. You know, I've practically spent my entire budget for the semester.

  Q: What does the woman suggest the man do?


  M: I hear John left his cat in your care while he's on vacation abroad. How are you getting along with it?

  Q: How does the woman find the cat?


  W: Hello, Professor White, I got my grade in the mail this morning, but I think there might be a mistake in my mark.

  Q: What does the man mean?


  M: Professor Johnson, last night when I was putting the finishing touches on my paper a computer failure completely wiped up my files. Do you think I could have another day to retype it?

  W: I'm sorry, Rod. I'm leaving for a conference tomorrow, and I'll be away two weeks. I suppose you could send me an e-copy.

  Q: Why does the man say he can't submit his assignment on time?

  Conversation one

  W: Tell me, Peter, what makes Harrods so famous?

  M: Well, it's the biggest department store in the UK. And its food hall and the Egyptian hall are very famous. People come to Harrods just to see them.

  W: What is special about the food hall?

  M: It sells many different kinds of food. For example, it has 250 kinds of cheese from all over the world and more than 180 kinds of bread. Customers also love all the different kinds of chocolate. They buy 100 tons every year.

  W: That's amazing! And why is the Egyptian hall so famous?

  M: Well, when people see it, they feel they are in another world. It looks like an Egyptian building from 4000 years ago. And it sells beautiful objects. They are not 4000 years old, of course.

  W: Is it true that Harrods produces its own electricity?

  M: Yes, it does. 70%, enough for a small town. To light the outside of the building, we use 11500 light bulbs.

  W: Really? Tell me, how many customers do you have on an average day? And how much do they spend?

  M: About 30000 people come on an average day. But during the sales, the number increases to 300000 customers a day. How much do they spend? Well, on average, customers spend about 1.5 million pounds a day. The record for one day is 9 million pounds,

  W: Come on! This suspense is killing me.

  M: No, really. What've you been doing these past few weeks? The last time I saw you, you were looking for a new job.

  W: Well, That's not exactly ture. I was thinking about changing jobs. Luckily, the offered me a new position in the accounting department.

  M: A step up in the big business world.

  W: I wouldn't exaggerate, but I'm pleased. I had been hoping to get a promotion for a while. So when it finally came through I was relieved. Actually that's why I was looking for a new job. I just didn't want to work there any more. They weren't going to recognize my efforts.

  M: Right. Sometimes you can do your best and it seems like the others don't know you exist. I hope the money is better?

  W: I got a reasonable raise. Now, enough about me. I'm dying to hear your news.

  Section B

  Passage 1

  Water scooters are water vehicles that look very much like motor cycles. Nowadays speedy, colorful water scooters are gaining in popularity. They can travel anywhere a small boat can and typically popular with young people. The rising popularity of the craft has raised the question of water scooter regulation. In this case, the argument for strict regulation is compelling. Water scooters are a particularly deadly form of water recreation. For example, two women were vacationing in Long Boat Key. While they were floating on a rubber boat along the shore, a water scooter crashed into them and killed them. Also, water scooter operators have been killed or seriously injured in collisions with other water craft. Others have been straddled at the sea when the scooters either failed or sank far from shore. Many water scooter operators are inexperienced and ignorant of navigational rules which increases the potential for accidents. The increasing popularity of the scooter has aggravated the problem providing more water vehicles to compete for the same space. Crowded water ways are simply an open invitation to disaster. In addition to the inherent operational hazards of water scooters, they're proving to be an environmental nonsense. Beach residents complained of the noise of the scooters. The pacific whale foundation on the west coast expressed concern that the scooters are frightening away and endanger species of whale that migrates to Hawaii for breeding. Regulations such as minimum operating age, restricted operating areas and compulsory classes in water safety are essential. Without such regulations, tragedies involve water scooters are sure to multiply which makes many beaches unsafe for recreation.

  26 What does the speaker say about water scooters?

  27 What is mentioned as one of the causes of water accidents?

  28 In what way are water scooters said to be an environmental nonsense?

  29 What does the speaker propose to ensure the safety of beaches for recreation?

  Passage 2

  It seems to me that neighbors are going out of style in America. The friend next door from whom you borrowed four eggs or a ladder has moved and the people in there now are strangers. Some of the traditional stories of neighborliness are impractical or silly. And it may be just as well that our relations with our neighbors are changing. The saying in the Bible "Love They Neighbor" was probably a poor translation of what must have originally been -Respect Thy Neighbor. Love can't be called up on order. Fewer than half the people in the United States live in the same house they lived in five years ago. So there's no reason to love the people who live next door to you just because they happen to wander into a real estate office that listed the place next door to yours. The only thing neighbors have in common, to begin with, is proximity. And unless something more develops, that isn't reason enough to be best friends. It sometimes happens naturally, but the chances are very small that your neighbors will be your choice of friends or that you'll be theirs, either. The best relationship with neighbors is one of friendly distance. You say hello, you small talk if you see them in the yard. You discuss problems as they arise. And you help each other in an emergency. The driveway, or the fence between you, is not really a cold shoulder but a clear boundary - we all like clearly defined boundaries for ourselves.

  30 What does the speaker say about the relations among neighbors nowadays?

  31 Why does the speaker say it may be difficult for people to love their neighbors?

  32 What should neighbors do in the speaker' opinion?

  Passage Three

  Articles in magazines and newspapers and special reports on radio, and television reflect the concern of many Americans about the increasing drop-out rate in our junior and senior high schools. Coupled with this fact is the warning that soon we will no longer have a work force to fill the many jobs that require properly educated personnel. The high student dropout rate is not a recent development. Ten years ago, many urban schools were reporting dropout rates between 35% and 50%. Some administrators maintain that dropouts remain the single greatest problem in their schools.

  Consequently, much effort has been spent on identifying students with problems in order to give them more attention before become failures. Since the dropout problem doesn't start in senior high school, special programs in junior high school focus on students who show promise, but have a record of truancy. That's staying away from school without permission. Under the guidance of counselors, these students are placed in classes with teachers who have had success in working with similar young people. Strategies to motivate students in high school, include rewarding academic excellence by designating scholars of the month, or by issuing articles of clothing such as school letter jackets formally given only to athletes.. No one working with these students claims to know how to keep all students in school.. Counselors, teachers and administrators are in the frontlines of what seems at times to be a losing battle. Actually, this problem should be everyone's concern since uneducated, unemployed citizens affect us all

  33 Why are Americans concerned about the increasing drop-out rate in school?

  34 What do we learn about the student drop-out problem in America?

  35 What is mentioned as one of the strategies used to motivate students?

  Section C

  I'm interested in the criminal justice system of our country. It seems to me that something has to be done if we are to survive as a country. I certainly don't know what the answers to our problems are. Things certainly get complicated in a hurry when you get into them. But I wonder if something couldn't be done to deal with some of these problems. One thing I'm concerned about is our practice of putting offenders in jail who haven't harmed anyone. Why not work out some system whereby they can pay back the debts they owe society instead of incurring another debt by going to prison and of course coming out the influence of hardened criminals. I'm also concerned about the short prison sentences people are serving for serious crimes. Of course one alternative to this is to restore capital punishment. But I'm not sure I would be for that. I'm not sure it's right to take an eye for an eye. The alternative to capital punishment is longer sentences but they would certainly cost the tax-payers much money.

  I also think we must do something about the insanity plea. In my opinion, anyone who takes another person's life intentionally is insane. However that does not mean that the person isn't guilty of the crime or that he shouldn't pay society the debt he owes. It said of course that a person may have to spend the rest of his life or a large part of it in prison for acts that he committed while not in full control of his mind.
