I was about to watch it when someone came to see me. M: Yeah! It reported some major breakthrough in cancer research. People over 40 would find the program worth watching. Q: What do we learn from the conversation about the TV program? 2.W: I won the first prize in the National Writing Contest and I got this camera as an award. M: It’s a good camera! You can take it when you travel. I had no idea you were a marvelous writer. Q: What do we learn from the conversation? 3.M: I wish I hadn’t thrown away that reading list! W: I thought you might regret it. That’s why I picked it up from the waste paper basket and left it on the desk. Q: What do we learn from the conversation? 4.W: Are you still teaching at the junior high school? M: Not since June. My brother and I opened a restaurant as soon as he got out of the army. Q: What do we learn about the man from the conversation? 5.M: Hi, Susan! Have you finished reading the book Professor Johnson recommended? W: Oh, I haven’t read it through the way I’d read a novel. I just read a few chapters which interested me. Q: What does the woman mean? 6.M: Jane missed class again, didn’t she? I wonder why? W: Well, I knew she had been absent all week. So I called her this morning to see if she was sick. It turned out that her husband was badly injured in a car accident. Q: What does the woman say about Jane? 7.W: I’m sure the Smiths’ new house is somewhere on the street, but I don’t know exactly where it is. M: But I’m told it’s two blocks from their old home. Q: What do we learn from the conversation? 8.W: I’ve been waiting here almost half an hour! How come it took you so long? M: Sorry, honey! I had to drive two blocks before I spotted a place to park the car. Q: What do we learn from the conversation? Now you'll hear the two long conversations. Conversation One M: Hello, I have a reservation for tonight. W: You name, please. M: Nelson, Charles Nelson. W: Ok, Mr. Nelson. That’s a room for five and… M: Excuse me, you mean a room for five pounds? I didn’t know the special was so good. W: No, no, no---according to our records, a room for 5 guests was booked under your name. M: No, no---hold on. You must have two guests under the name. W: OK, let me check this again. Oh, here we are. M: Yeah? W: Charles Nelson, a room for one for the 19th… M: Wait, wait. It was for tonight, not tomorrow night. W: Em…, em…, I don’t think we have any rooms for tonight. There’s a conference going on in town and---er, let’s see… yeah, no rooms. M: Oh, come on! You must have something, anything! W: Well, let---let me check my computer here… Ah! M: What? W: There has been a cancellation for this evening. A honeymoon suite is now available. M: Great, I’ll take it. W: But, I’ll have to charge you 150 pounds for the night. M: What? I should get a discount for the inconvenience! W: Well, the best I can give you is a 10% discount plus a ticket for a free continental breakfast. M: Hey, isn’t the breakfast free anyway? W: Well, only on weekends. M: I want to talk to the manager. W: Wait, wait, wait…Mr. Nelson, I think I can give you an additional 15% discount. 9.What is the man’s problem? 10.Why did the hotel clerk say they didn’t have any rooms for that night? 11.What did the clerk say about the breakfast in the hotel? 12.What did the man imply he would do at the end of the conversation? Conversation Two M: Sarah, you work in the admissions office, don’t you? W: Yes, I, mmm, I’ve been here ten years as an assistant director. M: Really? What does that involve? W: Well, I’m in charge of all the admissions of postgraduate students in the university. M: Only postgraduates? W: Yes, postgraduates only. I have nothing at all to do with undergraduates. M: Do you find that you get a particular sort of … different national groups? I mean, do you get larger numbers from Latin America or…? W: Yes. Well, of all the students enrolled last year, nearly half were from overseas. They were from African countries, the Far East, the Middle East, and Latin America. M: Em. But have you been doing just that for the last 10 years, or have you done other things? W: Well, I’ve been doing the same job. Er, before that, I was secretary of the Medical School at Birmingham, and further back, I worked in the local government. M: Oh, I see. W: So I’ve done different types of things. M: Yes, indeed. How do you imagine your job might develop in the future? Can you imagine shifting into a different kind of responsibility or doing something…? W: Oh, yeah, from October 1, I’ll be doing an entirely different job. There’s going to be more committee work. I mean, more policy work, and less dealing with students, unfortunately---I’ll miss my contact with students. 13.What is the woman’s present position? 14.What do we learn about the postgraduates enrolled last year in the woman’s university? 15.What will the woman’s new job be like? ………………………………
