  Passage One

  Part Ⅱ        Listening Comprehension          (30 minutes)

  Most American college students need to be efficient readers. This is
necessary because full-time students probably have to read several
hundred pages every week. They don’t have time to read a chapter three
or four times. They need to extract as much information as possible from
the first or second reading。

  Section A

  An extraordinarily important study skill is knowing how to mark a
book. Students mark the main ideas and important details with a pen or
pencil, yellow or blue or orange. Some students mark new vocabulary in a
different color. Most students write questions or short notes in the
margins. Marking a book is a useful skill, but it’s important to do it
right. First, read a chapter with one pen in your hand and others next
to you on the desk. Second, read a whole paragraph before you mark
anything. Don’t mark too much. Usually you will mark about 10% of a
passage. Third, decide on your own system for marking. For example,
maybe you will mark main ideas in yellow, important details in blue and
new words in orange. Maybe you will put question marks in the margin
when you don’t understand something and before an exam. Instead, you
just need to review your marks and you can save a lot of time。

  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 1 with a single line through the
centre。

  16. What should American college students do to cope with their
heavy reading assignments?

  1. W: I can’t seem to reach the tea at the back of the cupboard。

  17. What suggestion does the speaker give about marking a textbook?

  M: Oh… Why don’t you use the ladder? You might strain your
shoulder。

  18. How should students prepare for an exam according to the
speaker?

  Q: What does the man suggest the woman do?

  2. W: Since it’s raining so hard, let’s go and see the new
exhibits。

  M: That’s a good idea. Mary Johnson is one of my favorite painters。

  Q: Where does the conversation most probably take place?

  3. M: I hear the students gave the new teacher an unfair
evaluation。

  W: It depends on which student you are talking about。

  Q: What does the woman imply?

  4. W: It must have taken you a long time to fix up all these book
shelves。

  M: It wasn’t too bad. I got Doris to do some of them。

  Q: What does the man mean?

  5. W: Rod, I hear you’ll be leaving at the end of this month. Is it
true?

  M: Yeah. I’ve been offered a much better position with another firm.
I’d be a fool to turn it down。

  Q: Why is the man quitting his job?

  6. W: I honestly don’t want to continue the gardening tomorrow,

  Conversation one

  M: Hello. Matt Ellis speaking。

  W: Hello, Dr. Ellis, my name’s Pan Johnson. My roommate, Janet
Holmes, wanted me to call you。

  M: Janet Holmes? Oh, that’s right. She’s in my Shakespearean English
class. Has anything happened to her?

  W: Nothing, it’s just that she submitted a job application yesterday
and the company asked her in for an interview today. She’s afraid she
won’t be able to attend your class this afternoon though. I’m calling to
see whether it would be OK if I gave you her essay. Janet said it’s due
today。

  M: Certainly, that would be fine. Uh, you can either drop it off at
my class or bring it to my office。

  W: Would it be all right to come by your office around 4:00? I’m
afraid I can’t come any earlier because I have three classes this
afternoon。

  M: Uh, I won’t be here when you come. I’m supposed to be at a
meeting from 3:00 to 6:00, but how about leaving it with my secretary?
She usually stays until 5:00.

  W: Fine, please tell her I’ll be there at 4:00. And Dr. Ellis, one
more thing, could you tell me where your office is? Janet told me where
your class is, but she didn’t give me directions to your office。

  M: Well, I’m in Room 302 of the Gregory Building. I’ll tell my
secretary to put the paper in my mail box, and I’ll get it when I
return。

  Conversation two

  W: How are things going, Roald?

  M: Not bad, Jane. I’m involved in several projects and it’s a long
working day. But I’m used to that so it doesn’t bother me too much。

  W: I heard you have moved to a new house in the suburb. How do you
like commuting to London every day? Don’t you find it a string?

  M: It was terrible at first, especially getting up before dawn to
catch that 6:30 train. But it’s bearable now that I’ m used to it。

  W: Don’t you think it’s an awful waste of time? I couldn’t bear to
spend three hours sitting in a train every day。

  M: I used to feel the same as you. But now I quite enjoy it。

  W: How do you pass the time? Do you bring some work with you to do
on the train?

  M: Ah, that’s a good question. In the morning, I just sit in comfort
and read the papers to catch up with the news. On the way home at night,
I relax with a good book or chat with friends or even have a game of
bridge。

  W: I suppose you know lots of people on the train now。

  M: Yes, I bumped into someone I know on the platform every day. Last
week I came across a couple of old school friends and we spend the
entire journey in the bar。

  Passage Two

  The thought of having no sleep for 24 hours or more isn’t a pleasant
one for most people. The amount of sleep that each person needs varies.
In general, each of us needs about 8 hours of sleep each day to keep us
healthy and happy. Some people, however, can get by with just a few
hours of sleep at night。

  It doesn’t matter when or how much a person sleeps. But everyone
needs some rest to stay alive. Few doctors would have thought that there
might be an exception to this. Sleep is, after all, a very basic need.
But a man named Al Herpin turned out to be a real exception, for
supposedly, he never slept!

  Al Herpin was 90 years old when doctors came to his home in New
Jersy. They hoped to challenge the claim that he never slept. But they
were surprised. Though they watched him every hour of the day, they
never saw Herpin sleeping. He did not even own a bed. He never needed
one。

  The closest that Herpin came to resting was to sit in a rocking
chair and read a half dozen newspapers. His doctors were puzzled by the
strange case of permanent sleeplessness. Herpin offered the only clue to
his condition. He remembered some talk about his mother having been
injured several days before he had been born. Herpin died at the age of
94, never, it seems, having slept at all。

  19. What is taken for granted by most people?

  20. What do doctors think of Al Herpin’s case?

  21. What could have accounted for Al Herpin’s sleeplessness?

  Passage Three

  Hetty Green was a very spoiled, only child. She was born in
Massachusetts USA in 1835. Her father was a millionaire businessman. Her
mother was often ill, and so from the age of two her father took her
with him to work and taught her about stocks and shares. At the age of
six she started reading the daily financial newspapers and opened her
own bank account. Her father died when she was 21 and she inherited 7.5
million dollars. She went to New York and invested on Wall Street. Hetty
saved every penny, eating in the cheapest restaurants for 15 cents. She
became one of the richest and most hated women in the world. At 33 she
married Edward Green, a multi-millionaire, and had two children, Ned and
Sylvia。

  Hetty’s meanness was well-known. She always argued about prices in
shops. She walked to the local grocery store to buy broken biscuits
which were much cheaper, and to get a free bone for her much loved dog.
Once she lost a two-cent stamp and spent the night looking for it. She
never bought clothes and always wore the same long, ragged black skirt.
Worst of all, when her son, Ned, fell and injured his knee, she refused
to pay for a doctor and spent hours looking for free medical help. In
the end Ned lost his leg. When she died in 1916 she left her children
100 million dollars. Her daughter built a hospital with her money。

  22. What do we learn about Hetty Green as a child?

  23. How did Hetty Green become rich overnight?

  24. Why was Hetty Green much hated?

  25. What do we learn about Hetty’s daughter?
