2010年大学英语六级预测听力 Track 02

[00:03.73]Test Two

[00:04.82]Section A

[00:06.57]Directions:

[00:07.89]In this section,

[00:10.40]you will hear 8 short conversations and 2 long conversations.

[00:14.78]At the end of each conversation,

[00:17.18]one or more questions will be asked about what was said.

[00:21.01]Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken only once.

[00:25.93]After each question there will be a pause.

[00:29.32]During the pause, you must read the four choices

[00:32.61]marked A), B), C) and D), and decide which is the best answer.

[00:38.73]Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2

[00:43.65]with a single line through the centre.

[00:46.61]Now let's begin with the 8 short conversations.

[00:51.09]11. M: Excuse me,

[00:54.48]you didn't happen to see a modern history book with a blue cover.

[00:58.31]I hope nobody has taken it.

[01:00.38]W: Oh, that was your book?

[01:01.92]I took it down to the Lost and Found

[01:03.99]before someone walked off with it.

[01:06.29]Q: What does the woman imply?

[01:23.46]12. M: How are you going to pay for classes next year?

[01:28.40]Did you apply for financial aid?

[01:30.69]W: Well, I am working at a bookstore and doing some tutoring.

[01:34.30]That should be enough.

[01:35.72]Don't you think?

[01:37.26]Q: What can be inferred about the woman?

[01:53.88]13. M: Hi, Susan,

[01:57.17]would you like to go out and eat with us?

[01:59.47]Several of us are going over to the McCarty's.

[02:02.32]W: Well, that sure beats sticking around here.

[02:04.94]Just let me pack up my things.

[02:07.24]Q: What is the woman going to do?

[02:24.22]14. M: I am having a hard time keeping up my philosophy class.

[02:30.46]I am seriously considering hiring a tutor.

[02:33.20]W: A word of advice?

[02:35.06]Don't make a mistake I made last semester

[02:38.13]and wait until after the midterm exam to do it.

[02:41.51]Q: What does the woman imply?

[02:57.63]15. W: This is a pretty small room to be sharing with someone.

[03:03.22]Don't you find it a little crowded?

[03:05.41]M: Well, I don't know about my roommate. But to me,

[03:09.79]I'm used to being a little cramped.

[03:11.75]I grew up with six brothers, remember?

[03:14.38]Q: What does the man mean?

[03:32.25]16. W: Lilly must be in a very good mood.

[03:37.30]She is so nice to everybody.

[03:39.16]M: The bargain she has got on her new evening dress got her.

[03:43.64]Q: What does the man say about Lilly?

[04:01.31]17. M: Did you hear about the big snowstorm in Iowa yesterday?

[04:07.34]Three feet and twelve hours.

[04:10.08]W: Yeah, and I hear it's headed our way.

[04:13.03]We're supposed to get the same thing tonight.

[04:15.77]Q: What does the woman mean?

[04:32.90]18. W: I heard you are taking a photographic class at the new studio.

[04:39.15]What is it like?

[04:40.46]M: Nothing like our old class and you will like the instructor too.

[04:44.94]You know what?

[04:46.47]They are offering free trial classes.

[04:48.55]Q: What does the man imply the woman should do?

[05:06.58]Now you'll hear the two long conversations.

[05:11.63]Conversation One

[05:13.60]M: Well, hi Mrs. Brown.

[05:15.89]How's your apartment working out for you?

[05:18.08]W: Well, Mr. Nelson.

[05:19.61]That's what I would like to talk to you about.

[05:21.91]Well, I want to talk to you about that noise!

[05:24.97]You see. Would you mind talking to the tenant in 4B

[05:28.25]and asking him to keep his music down,

[05:30.33]especially after 10:00?

[05:32.08]M: Oh. Who? Me?

[05:35.36]W: Why? yes. The music is blaring almost every night,

[05:38.53]and it should be your job as manager to take care of things.

[05:41.82]M: Hey, I just collect the rent.

[05:44.33]Besides, the man living there is the owner's son,

[05:47.94]and he's a walking refrigerator.

[05:50.12]Hey, I'll see what I can do.

[05:52.31]Anything else?

[05:53.85]W: Well, yes.

[05:54.72]Could you talk to the owners of the property next door

[05:57.67]about the pungent odor drifting this way?

[06:00.08]M: Well, the area is a zone for agricultural and livestock use,

[06:05.00]so there's nothing much I can do about that.

[06:07.95]W: Well, what about the . . .

[06:09.81]That, that noise.

[06:11.45]M: What noise? I don't hear anything.

[06:13.86]W: There, there it is again.

[06:15.61]M: What noise?

[06:17.25]W: That noise.

[06:18.45]M: Oh, that noise.

[06:21.08]I guess the military has resumed its exercises on the artillery range.

[06:26.32]W: You have to be kidding.

[06:27.75]Can't anything be done about it?

[06:29.83]M: Why certainly.

[06:31.25]I've protested this activity, and these weekly activities should cease . . .

[06:35.84]within the next three to five years.

[06:38.58]W: Hey, you never told me about these problems

[06:41.31]before I signed the rental agreement.

[06:43.61]Questions 19 to 21 are based on the conversation you have just heard.

[06:50.61]19. What does Mrs. Burton ask the manager

[06:54.81]to tell the man in apartment 4B to do?

[07:12.16]20. Why is the manager hesitant about carrying out this request?

[07:33.14]21. How does the manager respond to this second request?

[07:53.49]Conversation Two

[07:56.13]M: Patricia, what are you doing recently?

[07:59.30]W: I'm doing comparative literature.

[08:01.49]At the moment, I'm comparing English, French and Russian novels.

[08:05.76]We write papers on our work.

[08:08.05]And then about 10 of us meet with our professors and read them and discuss them.

[08:12.75]M: Is this what you call the seminar system in the universities?

[08:16.69]W: Yes. And it works. Because we get on well with our professors and lecturers.

[08:22.05]Some of them are much older than us.

[08:24.35]And they don't mind at all if we disagree with them.

[08:26.75]M: You are lucky. When I was a college student, we had classes.

[08:31.79]But we hardly ever ask questions or discussed anything.

[08:35.40]It was partly our fault.

[08:37.80]We were dull, but so would the professors.

[08:40.64]They didn't seem to be able to do anything but lecture.

[08:43.81]Besides, the course itself was so out of date,

[08:47.31]same with the textbooks.

[08:48.74]I think students ought to have the same planning

[08:51.47]and changing their programs of study.

[08:53.55]W: Things have changed a lot since then.

[08:55.85]Many universities nowadays are experimenting with new ideas and new subjects.

[09:01.42]M: I can remember worrying about the examination all day long,

[09:05.36]especially during this time of the year.

[09:07.88]At that time, everything depended on how well a student does

[09:11.49]in his finals at the end of his academic year.

[09:14.22]The uncertainty was surely a great strain on us.

[09:17.94]W: Well. We don't find so great a strain now.

[09:21.55]We have final exams though.

[09:23.19]But we also get marks for the work we do.

[09:25.92]These marks will count works of degree.

[09:28.11]Then we will play an important part in deciding

[09:30.95]whether we get first, second or third class honors.

[09:34.89]Questions 22 to 25 are based on the conversation you have just heard.

[09:41.01]22. What subject is the woman doing recently?

[10:01.55]23. According to the conversation, what is a seminar?

[10:21.69]24. What does the man think of the professors at his university?

[10:43.56]25. What does the man think about exams in his college days?

[11:03.79]Section B

[11:05.99]Directions: In this section,

[11:10.69]you will hear 3 short passages.

[11:13.43]At the end of each passage,

[11:15.51]you will hear some questions.

[11:17.37]Both the passage and the questions will be spoken only once.

[11:21.85]After you hear a question,

[11:23.82]you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C) and D).

[11:32.02]Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2

[11:36.28]with a single line through the centre.

[11:39.35]Passage One

[11:40.66]Hungry for the brightest students,

[11:43.17]many of the country's stronger universities are actively discounting tuition.

[11:48.53]It's the high achievers,

[11:50.72]rather than the needy students,

[11:52.58]who are getting the money.

[11:54.44]The practice is remarkably widespread,

[11:57.18]reaching almost all but the 30 or so Ivy and other elite colleges

[12:02.31]that ban merit-based financial aid.

[12:05.27]Schools are also becoming more aggressive in promoting their discounts.

[12:09.53]At the DePauw University Website,

[12:12.37]enter an SAT or ACT score, grade-point average and class rank,

[12:17.95]and a computer program immediately tells you what kind of “award".

[12:22.22]Only “the real unlucky” pay full price,

[12:26.05]says Kenneth Redd, director of research at the NASFAA.

[12:30.86]About 76% of first-year students got some form of discount this year

[12:36.44]at 331 private schools polled annually by the NACUO.

[12:42.56]Average award per student: $7 000.

[12:47.27]At small schools with tuition under about $20 000,

[12:51.53]it is even higher,

[12:52.84]with some schools returning over half their tuition revenue.

[12:56.78]Carnegie Mellon even tells students

[12:59.40]it will “negotiate” and perhaps match financial-aid packages

[13:03.56]if kids are offered bigger awards at other schools.

[13:07.61]Much as banks and insurers offer special rates to their best customers,

[13:12.31]schools are giving the biggest breaks to their top students.

[13:16.14]Public four-year colleges, too,

[13:18.76]are offering discounts.

[13:20.84]The flip side of big discounts is that less money is available

[13:24.45]to improve academic programs and keep school infrastructure up to date.

[13:29.59]Mr. Redd says he found that universities

[13:32.22]that have sharply increased their tuition discount rates

[13:34.95]have seen graduation rates fall,

[13:37.36]and that's true even among highly selective schools.

[13:40.75]“They get the students in the door,

[13:43.04]but don't have the services to keep them," he says.

[13:46.65]Questions 26 to 28 are based on the passage you have just heard.

[13:53.22]26. Who will get the chance to pay less for their tuitions?

[14:12.49]27. What is the average award each student gets at 331 private schools??

[14:35.75]28. What is the big problem with a large discounting?

[14:56.16]Passage Two

[14:58.69]Surprisingly, no one knows how many children

[15:01.40]receive education in English hospitals,

[15:04.56]still less the content or quality of that education.

[15:08.06]More than 850 000 children go through hospital each year,

[15:12.66]and every child of school age has a legal right

[15:16.16]to continue to receive education while in hospital.

[15:19.99]However, there is only one hospital teacher

[15:22.94]to every 1 000 children in hospital.

[15:25.89]Little wonder the latest survey concludes

[15:28.74]that the extent and type of hospital teaching

[15:31.36]available differ a great deal across the country.

[15:35.30]Half the hospitals in England admit children have no teacher.

[15:40.00]A further quarter have only a part-time teacher.

[15:42.84]The special children's hospitals in major cities do best;

[15:46.89]general hospitals in the country and holiday areas are worst.

[15:51.26]From this survey,

[15:52.36]one can estimate that fewer than one in five children

[15:55.75]have some contact with a hospital teacher

[15:58.15]and that contact may be as little as two hours a day.

[16:02.64]Most children interviewed were surprised to find a teacher in hospital at all.

[16:07.67]They had not been prepared for it by parents or their own school.

[16:11.28]If there was a teacher they were more likely to read books and do math work;

[16:15.77]without a teacher they would only play games.

[16:18.72]Reasons for hospital teaching range from preventing a child falling behind

[16:23.20]and maintaining the habit of school to keeping a child occupied,

[16:28.12]and the latter is often all the teacher can do.

[16:31.73]Children tend to rely on concerned school friends to keep in touch with school work.

[16:36.98]Several parents spoke of requests for work being ignored or refused by the school.

[16:42.45]Once back at school children rarely get extra teaching,

[16:45.95]and are told to catch up as best they can.

[16:48.90]Many short-stay child-patients catch up quickly.

[16:52.29]But schools do very little to ease the anxiety about falling behind.

[16:57.54]Questions 29 to 31 are based on the passage you have just heard.

[17:03.55]29. What can be inferred from the latest survey?

[17:23.57]30. Who do children in hospital usual1y turn to

[17:28.48]in order to catch up with their school work?

[17:45.42]31. What can we conclude about the author from the passage?

[18:05.32]Passage Three

[18:07.63]This is a discussion course where your active attendance and participation in class

[18:12.67]are vital to your success and that of the group.

[18:16.28]Bring your text to class and be prepared to read aloud,

[18:19.78]debate vigorously, listen, and enjoy.

[18:23.82]Contributions to the classroom discussion list figure in classroom participation,

[18:29.07]and students will be asked to lead discussions and classroom workshops as well.

[18:34.64]If you must miss class because of a medical or personal emergency,

[18:38.69]you should notify me beforehand of the fact by phone, e-mail, or in person,

[18:44.60]and get the information you missed.

[18:47.11]Any unexcused absence deducts a percentage point from your final grade:

[18:52.14]two latenesses count as one absence.

[18:55.32]If you have a conflict, like a recitation, sports commitment,

[18:59.58]or job that meets during this class,

[19:01.88]you should not take the course.

[19:04.07]Attendance at meetings with the course tutor

[19:06.36]and at the special events with Nora Keller is required.

[19:10.08]Essays are due at the beginning of class on the day assigned.

[19:13.69]If you need an extension (to the next class period),

[19:16.97]you must get permission before the paper is due.

[19:20.03]A paper coming in after the next class loses one third of a grade

[19:24.85]for each day it is late.

[19:26.59]You must meet with the course tutor and revise the first essay

[19:29.87]by the due day and may revise any other (except the last),

[19:33.93]if you schedule a conference with the course tutor

[19:36.44]immediately after receiving the graded essay

[19:38.84]and submit a new essay within a week of getting it back.

[19:43.00]A revision grade will replace the original grade only if it is higher.

[19:47.05]Essays must be typed or word-processed,

[19:49.89]double-spaced, and adequately margined,

[19:53.28]should include a title,

[19:54.70]and need to observe the conventions of grammar and spelling.

[19:59.19]Questions 32 to 35 are based on the passage you have just heard.

[20:04.55]32. When should students get to know the passage?

[20:24.33]33. What is very important to the success of this course?

[20:43.01]34. What are students supposed to do

[20:49.19]if they have a part-time job at class time?

[21:06.38]35. What kind of essay does the professor want?

[21:26.71]Section C

[21:29.36]Directions: In this section,

[21:32.52]you will hear a passage three times.

[21:35.37]When the passage is read for the first time,

[21:38.21]you should listen carefully for its general idea.

[21:41.71]When the passage is read for the second time,

[21:44.45]you are required to fill in the blanks numbered

[21:47.40]from 36 to 43 with the exact words you have just heard.

[21:52.98]For blanks numbered from 44 to 46 you are required

[21:57.68]to fill in the missing information.

[22:00.09]For these blanks,

[22:01.51]you can either use the exact words you have just heard

[22:04.79]or write down the main points in your own words.

[22:08.73]Finally, when the passage is read for the third time,

[22:12.66]you should check what you have written.

[22:15.61]Now listen to the passage.

[22:18.79]The story of chocolate begins with the discovery of America.

[22:23.71]Until 1492,

[22:26.00]the Old World knew nothing about the delicious and stimulating flavor

[22:30.27]that was to become the favorite of millions.

[22:33.77]Columbus returned in triumph from America

[22:36.61]and showed almond-like cocoa beans to the Spanish throne,

[22:40.23]who, however, never dreamed how important cocoa beans could be.

[22:44.81]It remained for Hernando Cortez,

[22:48.10]the great Spanish explorer,

[22:49.96]to grasp the commercial possibilities of them.

[22:53.35]During his conquest of Mexico,

[22:55.75]Cortez found the Indians using cocoa beans in the preparation of the royal drink,

[23:01.55]“chocolatl” meaning warm liquid.

[23:05.05]However, it was very bitter.

[23:07.35]To make it more agreeable to Europeans,

[23:10.41]Cortez and his countrymen conceived the idea of sweetening it with cane sugar.

[23:16.20]While they took chocolatl back to Spain,

[23:19.38]the drink underwent several more changes with newly discovered spices, such as vanilla.

[23:25.94]The new drink quickly won friends.

[23:28.89]Spain wisely proceeded to plant cocoa in its overseas colonies,

[23:34.14]which gave birth to a very profitable business.

[23:37.54]It did not take long before chocolate was acclaimed

[23:40.92]throughout Europe as a delicious, health-giving food.

[23:44.31]Chocolate drinking spread to Great Britain,

[23:47.71]and in 1657 the first of many famous English Chocolate Houses appeared.

[23:53.72]The hand methods of manufacture used by small shops

[23:57.43]gave way in time to the mass production of chocolate.

[24:01.16]The transition was hastened by the advent of a perfected steam engine,

[24:06.51]which mechanized the cocoaa grinding process.

[24:09.57]By 1730, chocolate had dropped in price

[24:13.19]from three dollars or more per pound to within financial reach of all.

[24:17.78]The invention of the coca press in 1828 reduced the prices

[24:22.70]even further and helped to improve the quality of the beverage

[24:26.53]by squeezing out part of the fat in cocoaa beans.

[24:31.34]Now the passage will be read again.

[24:36.81]The story of chocolate begins with the discovery of America.

[24:41.29]Until 1492, the Old World knew nothing about the delicious and stimulating flavor

[24:47.53]that was to become the favorite of millions.

[24:51.14]Columbus returned in triumph from America

[24:53.76]and showed almond-like cocoa beans to the Spanish throne,

[24:57.48]who, however, never dreamed how important cocoa beans could be.

[25:02.29]It remained for Hernando Cortez,

[25:05.35]the great Spanish explorer,

[25:07.22]to grasp the commercial possibilities of them.

[25:10.60]During his conquest of Mexico,

[25:13.01]Cortez found the Indians using cocoa beans in the preparation of the royal drink,

[25:18.80]“chocolatl”, meaning warm liquid.

[25:22.09]However, it was very bitter.

[25:24.49]To make it more agreeable to Europeans,

[25:27.44]Cortez and his countrymen conceived the idea of sweetening it with cane sugar.

[25:33.24]While they took chocolatl back to Spain,

[25:36.52]the drink underwent several more changes with newly discovered spices, such as vanilla.

[25:43.09]The new drink quickly won friends.

[25:45.93]Spain wisely proceeded to plant cocoa in its overseas colonies,

[25:51.18]which gave birth to a very profitable business.

[25:54.13]It did not take long before chocolate was acclaimed

[25:58.18]throughout Europe as a delicious, health-giving food.

[26:55.76]Chocolate drinking spread to Great Britain,

[26:59.57]and in 1657 the first of many famous English Chocolate Houses appeared.

[27:05.81]The hand methods of manufacture used by small shops

[27:09.20]gave way in time to the mass production of chocolate.

[28:06.95]The transition was hastened by the advent of a perfected steam engine,

[28:12.76]which mechanized the cocoaa grinding process.

[28:16.15]By 1730, chocolate had dropped in price

[28:19.65]from three dollars or more per pound to within financial reach of all.

[29:18.48]The invention of the coca press in 1828 reduced the prices

[29:23.63]even further and helped to improve the quality of the beverage

[29:27.46]by squeezing out part of the fat in cocoaa beans.

[29:36.36]Now the passage will be read for the third time.

[29:43.04]The story of chocolate begins with the discovery of America.

[29:46.97]Until 1492, the Old World knew nothing about the delicious and stimulating flavor

[29:53.42]that was to become the favorite of millions.

[29:56.71]Columbus returned in triumph from America

[29:59.77]and showed almond-like cocoa beans to the Spanish throne,

[30:03.37]who, however, never dreamed how important cocoa beans could be.

[30:07.86]It remained for Hernando Cortez,

[30:11.14]the great Spanish explorer,

[30:13.11]to grasp the commercial possibilities of them.

[30:16.83]During his conquest of Mexico,

[30:19.02]Cortez found the Indians using cocoa beans in the preparation of the royal drink,

[30:24.70]“chocolatl”, meaning warm liquid.

[30:28.10]However, it was very bitter.

[30:30.28]To make it more agreeable to Europeans,

[30:33.45]Cortez and his countrymen conceived the idea of sweetening it with cane sugar.

[30:38.92]While they took chocolatl back to Spain,

[30:42.31]the drink underwent several more changes with newly discovered spices, such as vanilla.

[30:48.87]The new drink quickly won friends.

[30:52.04]Spain wisely proceeded to plant cocoa in its overseas colonies,

[30:57.08]which gave birth to a very profitable business.

[31:00.57]It did not take long before chocolate was acclaimed

[31:03.97]throughout Europe as a delicious, health-giving food.

[31:07.68]Chocolate drinking spread to Great Britain,

[31:10.75]and in 1657 the first of many famous English Chocolate Houses appeared.

[31:16.76]The hand methods of manufacture used by small shops

[31:20.59]gave way in time to the mass production of chocolate.

[31:24.20]The transition was hastened by the advent of a perfected steam engine,

[31:29.66]which mechanized the cocoaa grinding process.

[31:32.95]By 1730, chocolate had dropped in price

[31:36.45]from three dollars or more per pound to within financial reach of all.

[31:40.93]The invention of the coca press in 1828 reduced the prices

[31:45.85]even further and helped to improve the quality of the beverage

[31:49.46]by squeezing out part of the fat in cocoaa beans.

[31:55.04]This is the end of listening conversation.
