[00:26.34]For the second and third readings,

[00:29.07]the passage will be read sentence by sentence,

[00:32.68]or phrase by phrase, with intervals of 15 seconds.

[00:38.37]The last reading will be done at normal speed again

[00:43.40]and during this time you should check your work.

[00:47.33]You will then be given

[01:02.38]CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD READER

[01:05.88]To improve your reading habits,

[01:08.08]you must understand the characteristics of a good reader.

[01:12.78]First, the good reader usually reads rapidly.

[01:17.59]Of course,

[01:18.79]he does not read every piece of material at the same rate.

[01:23.28]But whether he is reading a newspaper

[01:25.75]or a chapter in a physics text,

[01:28.70]his reading rate is relatively fast.

[01:31.77]He has learned to read for ideas

[01:34.82]rather than words one at a time.

[01:37.56]Next, the good reader can recognize

[01:40.52]and understand general ideas and specific details.

[01:45.65]Thus he is able to comprehend the material

[01:48.93]with a minimum of effort and a maximum of interest.

[01:52.98]Finally, the good reader has at his command

[01:56.37]several special skills,

[01:58.78]which he can apply to reading problems as they occur.

[02:02.93]For the college student,

[02:04.79]the most helpful of these skills include

[02:07.86]making use of the various aids to understanding

[02:11.91]that most textbooks provide

[13:16.48]Now you have 2 minutes to check through your work.

[15:20.77]That is the end of the Part I Dictation.

[15:41.35]PART II LISTENING COMPREHENSION

[15:45.23]In Sections A,B and C you will hear everything ONCE ONLY.

[15:51.36]Listen carefully and then answer the questions that follow.

[15:55.95]Mark the correct answer to each question on your answer sheet.

[16:00.99]SECTION A CONVERSATIONS

[16:04.27]In this section you will hear several conversations.

[16:08.20]Listen to the conversations carefully

[16:11.26]and then answer the questions that follow.

[16:14.33]Questions 1 to 3 are based on the following conversation.

[16:19.25]At the end of the conversation,

[16:25.48]you will be given 15 seconds to answer the questions.

[16:25.51]Now, listen to the conversation.

[16:28.14]W: Hi, you had an encounter

[16:31.74]with an elephant yesterday?

[16:33.94]M: Yeah, it scared me to death.

[16:36.67]W: What happened?

[16:37.98]M: I was walking in the park

[16:40.27]when a female elephant came

[16:42.25]charging at me right from behind.

[16:44.65]W: How terrifying!

[16:46.62]M: Yes. As I was running

[16:49.13]I tripped and fell to the ground.

[16:51.76]Just as I turned around

[16:53.84]the tusks were already about a foot from my chest.

[16:57.44]W: She was trying to stab you with her tusks?

[17:00.62]M: She was going for a kill.

[17:03.02]I just had time to grab the tusks

[17:06.20]and kind of pulled them past my body.

[17:09.48]And one tusk stabbed into the earth

[17:12.43]about a few centimeters from my head.

[17:15.60]I held on and she just tried to stab me.

[17:18.88]Miraculously she didn't touch anything vital.

[17:22.82]W: When she stabbed into the earth,

[17:25.66]she must have been right on top of you?

[17:28.40]M: Oh yes, she was.

[17:31.25]Her eyeballs were about two inches from my eyeballs.

[17:34.74]W: Just at that second

[17:36.93]when you were staring at her in the eye,

[17:39.78]was there anything going through your head

[17:42.51]or were you overwhelmed with terror?

[17:45.68]M: My thought was. If you let go of these tusks,

[17:49.73]you are dead meat.

[17:51.15]W: Well, what did happen? Why didn't you die?

[17:54.87]M: Usually the elephant is just as scared as you are.

[17:59.24]Someone came up and screamed at the elephant.

[18:02.42]That probably distracted her

[18:04.82]and she decided to run away.

[18:20.88]Questions 4 to 6 are based on the following conversation.

[18:26.68]At the end of the conversation,

[18:29.41]you will be given 15 seconds to answer the questions.

[18:34.22]Now, listen to the conversation.

[18:37.73]M: Math department, Doctor Webster speaking.

[18:40.57]W: Hello, Prof. Webster,

[18:42.97]this is Janet Hill calling.

[18:45.16]I live two doors down from your teaching assistant, Don Williams.

[18:50.30]Don asked me to call you

[18:52.60]because he has lost his voice

[18:55.00]and can't talk to you himself.

[18:57.74]M: Lost his voice? Oh, what a shame!

[19:00.91]Is there anything I can do for him?

[19:03.21]W: Well, he has a class this afternoon from 2:30 to 4:00

[19:09.34]and he won't be able to teach it.

[19:11.96]But he doesn't want to cancel it, either.

[19:15.13]M: Does he want me to try to

[19:17.32]find somebody else to teach the class?

[19:20.05]W: No, not exactly.

[19:22.02]What he wants to do is to get someone to go in for him,

[19:26.61]just to pass back the mid-term exams.

[19:29.67]M: His class is at 2:30, you say?

[19:32.96]Well, I'm free at that time

[19:35.36]and I was going to be on campus anyway;

[19:38.10]so I could do it for him.

[19:39.96]What room is his class in?

[19:42.15]W: Cater Hall, Room 214.

[19:46.41]Will you need his office key to get the exams?

[19:50.02]He's given it to me

[19:51.44]and I could bring it to you.

[19:53.31]M: Actually, that won't be necessary.

[19:55.93]We have a master key in the math department.

[19:59.32]So I can get into his office if necessary.

[20:02.38]W: Thank you very much, Prof. Webster.

[20:05.34]M: My pleasure.

[20:21.36]Questions 7 to 10 are based on the following conversation.

[20:26.39]At the end of the conversation,

[20:28.90]you will be given

[20:30.22]20 seconds to answer the questions.

[20:33.39]Now, listen to the conversation.

[20:37.00]M: Hey, Jane. What's so interesting?

[20:40.50]F: I'm reading this fascinating article

[20:43.56]on the societies of the Ice Age

[20:46.19]during the Pleistocene period.

[20:48.92]M: The Ice Age?

[20:50.78]There weren't any societies then.

[20:53.19]Just a bunch of cave people.

[20:55.38]F: That's what people used to think.

[20:57.89]But a new exhibit of the America museum of natural history

[21:02.85]showed Ice Age people were surprisingly advanced.

[21:07.22]M: Oh, really? In what ways?

[21:09.41]F: Well, Ice Age people were the inventors of

[21:13.24]language, art, and music as we know it.

[21:16.63]And they didn't live in caves,

[21:19.25]they built their own shelters.

[21:21.66]M: What did they use to build them?

[21:24.61]The cold weather would have killed off most of the trees

[21:28.22]so they couldn't have used wood.

[21:30.63]F: In some of the warmer climates,

[21:33.25]they did build the houses of wood.

[21:36.10]In other places, they used animal bones and skins

[21:40.34]or lived in natural stone shelters.

[21:43.73]M: How did they stay warm?

[21:45.92]Animal skin walls don't sound very sturdy.

[21:48.98]F: Well, in the early Ice Age,

[21:51.93]they often faced the house towards south

[21:54.89]to take the advantage of the sun,

[21:57.29]a primitive sort of solar heating.

[22:00.46]M: Hey, that's pretty smart.

[22:02.76]I guess I spoke too soon.

[22:05.16]Can I read that magazine article after you've done?

[22:08.45]I think I'm going to try to impress my history teacher

[22:12.16]with my amazing knowledge of the Ice Age civilization.

[22:16.10]F: What a show off.

[22:37.30]SECTION B PASSAGES

[22:40.19]In this section,you will hear several passages.

[22:43.80]Listen to the passages carefully

[22:46.64]and then answer the questions that follow.

[22:49.71]Questions 11 to 13 are based on the following passage.

[22:54.52]At the end of the passage,

[22:56.48]you will be given 15 seconds to answer the questions.

[23:00.64]Now, listen to the passage.

[23:04.69]There is probably no area of human activity

[23:08.63]in which our values and lifestyles

[23:11.25]are reflected more vividly

[23:13.66]than they are in the clothes

[23:15.97]that we choose to wear.

[23:17.83]The dress of an individual

[23:20.13]is a kind of "sign language"

[23:22.97]that communicates a complex set of information

[23:27.02]and is usually the basis on which

[23:29.65]immediate impressions are formed.

[23:32.81]Traditionally a concern for clothes

[23:35.66]was considered to be a feminine preoccupation,

[23:39.38]while men took pride in the fact

[23:42.39]that they were completely lacking in clothes consciousness.

[23:46.99]Time has changed as masculine dress

[23:50.71]takes on greater variety and color.

[23:54.10]As early as 1955, a research revealed

[23:58.58]that men attached high importance

[24:01.54]to the value of clothing in daily life.

[24:04.71]White-collar workers in particular

[24:07.79]viewed dress as a symbol capable of manipulation,

[24:11.84]which could be used to impress or influence others,

[24:16.65]especially in work situations.

[24:19.71]Although blue-collar workers were less aware

[24:23.65]that they might be judged on the basis of their clothing,

[24:27.15]they recognized

[24:28.68]that any difference from the accepted pattern of dress

[24:32.40]would draw ridicule from fellow workers.

[24:36.01]Since that time, the pattern has changed:

[24:39.84]the typical office worker may now be wearing the blue shirt,

[24:44.43]and the laborer a white shirt;

[24:47.27]but the importance of dress has not diminished.

[25:06.54]Questions 14 to 16 are based on the following passage.

[25:11.35]At the end of the passage, you will be given

[25:14.19]15 seconds to answer the questions.

[25:17.37]Now, listen to the passage.

[25:20.32]To work in an international organization,

[25:23.93]such as the United Nations

[25:26.23]or the European Commission,

[25:28.31]you need to be accredited

[25:30.38]by one of the various international translators'

[25:33.88]or interpreters' associations.

[25:36.94]To achieve this,

[25:38.48]you must undergo strict and lengthy training,

[25:41.97]either at an accrediting organization's own school,

[25:45.91]or on a postgraduate course at university.

[25:49.74]But a qualification in languages

[25:52.90]is not the only route into the job.

[25:55.85]At the European Commission, for example,

[25:58.69]a recent intake of trainee interpreters

[26:02.19]included several with degrees in subjects like

[26:05.69]economics, linguistics, philosophy, law

[26:10.13]and,of course, languages.

[26:12.43]To become a successful interpreter,

[26:14.83]candidates need to be at a high level in

[26:18.12]between three and five languages.

[26:21.40]However, regardless of how many languages they speak,

[26:25.45]they will only be required to translate

[26:28.13]from their acquired languages

[26:30.32]into their mother tongue.

[26:32.17]Compared with using a foreign language,

[26:35.13]manipulating their own language

[26:37.76]is more crucial for them. With this skill,

[26:41.47]and a lot of practice,they will be able to

[26:44.87]clearly communicate information or messages

[26:48.91]which have been expressed in a very different way

[26:51.91]in another language.

[26:54.00]Yet, while interpreters may be seldom noticed,

[26:58.58]they are always looking carefully at the people

[27:01.65]for whom they are interpreting.

[27:04.23]In particular,

[27:06.08]they are looking at the body language of the speaker,

[27:09.04]because they must also use this information

[27:12.32]when they translate what he or she said.

[27:29.37]Questions 17 to 20 are based on the following passage.

[27:35.39]At the end of the passage, you will be given

[27:38.34]20 seconds to answer the questions.

[27:41.73]Now, listen to the passage.

[27:44.47]How many of you drink cola? Nearly everybody.

[27:48.63]Did you know that cola started out

[27:51.69]not as a soft drink but as a cure for headache

[27:55.91]back in the late 1800's?

[27:58.53]John S. Pamberton, a druggist from Atlanta,

[28:02.80]had experimented for many months

[28:06.19]trying to find a cure for the common headache.

[28:09.15]He worked in his backyard,

[28:11.66]mixing and heating different combinations of oils and flavors

[28:16.69]until he found one that seemed promising.

[28:20.41]Pamberton bottled the mixture

[28:22.92]and began selling it in drugstores as concentrated syrup

[28:27.19]that the customer had to mix with water before drinking.

[28:31.35]Cola's transformation

[28:33.21]from concentrated syrup to a carbonated soft drink

[28:37.36]came about quite by accident.

[28:40.43]One day,

[28:41.52]a customer came into a drugstore complaining of a headache

[28:45.35]and asked for a bottle of cola syrup.

[28:48.63]He wanted to take it right away.

[28:51.58]So he asked the clerk to mix the medicine

[28:54.87]while he waited. The clerk,

[28:57.38]instead of walking to the other end of the counter

[29:00.88]to get plain water,

[29:02.63]suggested mixing the syrup with soda water.

[29:05.91]The customer agreed, and after drinking it,

[29:09.63]remarked how good it tasted.

[29:12.36]The clerk continued offering the mixture

[29:15.09]and the cola grew in popularity.

[29:18.27]Today carbonated cola

[29:20.78]is sold in most countries around the world.

[29:24.59]And although they no longer contain the ingredients

[29:28.31]to kill headaches,

[29:29.74]they are still very refreshing.

[29:52.37]SECTION C NEWS BROADCAST

[29:55.87]In this section, you will hear several news items.

[30:00.03]Listen to them carefully

[30:02.00]and then answer the questions that follow.

[30:05.17]Questions 21 and 22 are based on the following news.

[30:10.52]At the end of the news item,

[30:12.61]you will be given 10 seconds to answer the questions.

[30:16.43]Now listen to the news.

[30:20.42]Commonwealth leaders agree to lift

[30:23.16]Nigeria's three and a half years' suspension on May 29,

[30:28.85]the day the military government

[30:31.58]hands over power to an elected president,"

[30:35.19]the organization's Secretary General announced yesterday.

[30:40.11]Nigeria was suspended

[30:42.41]from the 54-nation group of mainly former British colonies in 1995

[30:49.41]after it executed nine minority rights activists,

[30:54.22]including writer Ken Saro-Wiwa.

[30:57.83]But now that the country has embarked

[31:00.05]on a return to democracy.

[31:02.57]Commonwealth heads of government

[31:04.76]have agreed to end the estrangement.

[31:07.82]Secretary General Chief Amecka Anyaoku said in a statement,

[31:13.83]"I'm delighted

[31:14.93]that an unfortunate episode in Nigeria-

[31:18.21]Commonwealth relations will now come to an end

[31:22.36]and Nigeria is resuming its rightful place in the Commonwealth."

[31:36.24]Questions 23 and 24 are based on the following news.

[31:41.92]At the end of the news item,

[31:45.42]you will be given 10 seconds to answer the questions.

[31:49.91]Now listen to the news.

[31:52.53]The space shuttle Discovery made a rare night landing

[31:57.89]at the Kennedy Space Center

[32:00.07]early on Thursday. The night landing,

[32:03.13]the eleventh in the center's ninety-four shuttle missions,

[32:07.29]ended a ten-day mission

[32:09.47]to outfit the orbiting international space station.

[32:13.74]Although the spacecraft created a sonic boom

[32:18.01]that could be heard along much of Florida's eastern seaboard,

[32:22.71]witnesses on the ground could not see the orbiter

[32:26.76]until it was directly over the runway lights.

[32:31.02]Scattered showers off the Florida coast

[32:34.30]had threatened to postpone the shuttle's return,

[32:37.80]but forecasters gave the green light

[32:40.87]when they decided no rain would fall

[32:43.40]within forty-eight kilometers of the space center.

[32:56.34]Questions 25 and 26 are based on the following news.

[33:02.25]At the end of the news item,
