MODEL TEST 3
Section A
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 2
with a single line through the centre.
now let's begin with the 8 short conversations
11.M: Good morning. This is David speaking.
I'm just calling to say I'm actually busy on the 16th.
So, I was wondering,
rather than delaying things any longer,
could we bring everything forward to the 15th?
W: Well, I'll have to check my agenda
and I'll call you back in a minute.
Q: Why is the man making the call?
12.M: I do want to rush into my boss'office,
tell him that I quit.
He promised to give me the promotion,
but he just ate his words.
W: Well, if I were you,
I'd bite my lips and wait until I get a better job.
Q: What does the woman suggest the man do?
13. M: Now suppose I was to stay at home
and do all the housework and look after the children
while my wife went out to work.
What would you think about that?
W: If I'm going to be logical, no.
Q: What does the woman mean?
14. W: These tomatoes are huge and fat.
You must have watered and fertilized them a lot.
M: Yes, I did. They ought to be ripe enough
to pick by the next Friday when we have our party.
Q: Where did this conversation most
probably take place?
15. M: I'm really enjoying that literature
with Professor Benson.
Was the lecture this morning interesting?
W: To tell you the truth,
I was so exhausted from staying up last night
to finish the reading that I didn't get much out of it.
Q: What does the woman mean?
16. M: I'm sorry, Miss.
You'll have to come with us.
Hidden cameras have detected what you have done.
Leave the merchandise here.
W: I'll come along,
but I assure you that I can prove my innocence.
Q: Where does this conversation most likely take place?
17.W: I don't know why,
but since I saw Williams on TV,
I don't feel so bad about myself now.
M: Well, they say laughter is the best medicine.
Q: What can be inferred about the show
the woman just watched?
18.W: I can't remember the last time I was so
disappointed by a concert.
M: I know! We expected rock and roll,
and instead what we heard was elevator music.
Q: What do we learn from the conversation?
Now you will hear the two long conversations
Conversation One
M: Excuse me. Are you going to buy a concert tickets?
W: Yes, I am. So are all these people in front of me.
M: Have you been here long?
W: About 45 minutes. I've moved forward
a total of about 3 feet in that time
M: You are kidding.
W: Not at all.
There was a couple up ahead of me
who got so disgusted and they finally gave up and left.
They said they'd been waiting for more than an hour
M: Terrible. Does anyone know what's causing the delay?
W: If so, no one has let us know.
It could be that there aren't enough people
sellin tickets this afternoon.
Or maybe their computer is down.
I'm sure the concert hasn't been cancelled.
M: I just hope they don't run out of tickets
before I get up there.
W: That really would be annoying, wouldn't it?
M: I guess I should have come before lunch.
Or has it been like this all day?
W: Apparently it has.
In fact, before I came
I tried calling to charge my tickets over the phone,
just to avoid this long wait.
But they are not taking phone orders,
or checks, or credit cards.
It's cash or nothing,
and you have to come in person.
M: Well, there are two more hours
before the tickets office closes.
Tickets for a good concert are worth waiting for.
So I think I'll just make myself comfortable.
Questions 19 to 21 are based on the conversation
you have just heard.
19. What do we learn about the woman's opinion
about what's happening?
20. How are people expected to purchase their tickets?
21. What will the man probably do next?
Conversation Two
W: Guess what, Mike?
My parents bought me a digital camera
for my birthday!
M: It's about time you got a new one,
instead of the clumsy one you've been using for years.
Wow, it's the newest model and has all the latest functions.
W: Yeah, but I'm not too sure how to operate it though.
Can you please help me, Mike?
M: Sure. I don't mind helping you figure out how it works.
How about you take a picture of me first?
I want to see how good your camera is. Here,
I'll adjust the flash for you so that it's not too bright.
W: Are you ready? I'm going to zoom in for a close-up.
Say cheese, Mike!
M: Ok, cheese!
W: Here, have a look
-tell me what you think of the winning combination of
my photography skills and brand-new camera.
I've already taken a few snapshots of my parents and friends with it.
M: Well, with this model,
you won't have to charge the batteries for too long.
Another advantage is that it's slim,
so it won't take up too much space in your bag.
I'm impressed-the quality of the images is amazing.
I can't say the same about your photography skills, though!
Questions 22 to 25 are based on the conversation
you have just heard.
22. What do we know about the woman
from the conversation?
23. What does the man suggest first
to check the camera?
24. Which statement is NOT the advantage of the camera?
25.What does the man imply about the woman at last?
Section B
Directions:
In this section,
you will hear 3 short passages.
At the end of each passage,
you will hear some questions.
Both the passage and the questions will be spoken only once.
After you hear a question,
you must choose the best answer from the four choices
marked A), B), C) and D).
Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2
with a single line through the centre.
Passage One
Stress is a very normal part of life.
Most people feel stress at some time in their lives.
It doesn’t come from an event itself,
that is, from the things that are happening in our lives.
It comes form the meaning we give to what has happened.
We can experience stress any time
we don’t feel we have control.
It is the body’s way of showing anxiety or worry.
Stress is not just caused by our mental or emotional condition,
it is also influenced by how tired we are,
whether we get enough physical exercise,
and whether we can relax.
If we feel stressed,
there are several things that we can do.
First, we need to learn how to relax
and breathe slowly and smoothly.
We can also take some time out of our worried,
busy schedule to notice the small things in life.
Smell the air, look at the flowers,
notice the small designs in the leaves on a tree-
these activities can do much to quiet us
and to give ourselves a small break in a busy schedule.
We need to take care of our bodies.
Being tired makes it easier for us to get sick
and to develop physical problems related to stress.
We need to get enough rest, eat well,
and do some regular exercise.
Finally, we need to find out
what is causing the stress in our lives.
Once we have found it,
we need to begin to change that part of our lives.
If we believe that we can control stress,
we can begin to control our lives.
Questions 26 to 28 are based on the passage
you have just heard.
26. Which of the following causes stress?
27. When can we experience stress?
28. What can help us get rid of stress?
Passage Two
The latest winners of the UK National Lottery Euro millions jackpot
are Joan and Brian Caswell.
The retired and now very wealthy couple from Bolton
claim they won't let the £25 million win change them.
However, they have said they will be buying a flash car
and taking an extravagant holiday to Rio.
The Caswells are the latest in a long line of UK lottery winners.
Over £32 billion has been paid out to winners
since the first UK national lottery draw in 1994.
With such huge sums of money at stake
it is no surprise that something like 70 percent of
UK adults play the lottery on a regular basis.
They can even choose to play daily as the company
which runs the UK National Lottery, Camelot, operates multiple games.
Of course, there is a more serious side to the lottery.
The UK government collects around 12 percent tax on lottery revenues
and ensures a further slice of the money goes to good causes.
These include projects in health,
education, the environment, the arts, sport and national heritage.
With all these positive applications for lottery revenue,
it might be hard to imagine a downside to the lottery.
But there are some very vocal opponents to the national game.
Some feel that any form of gambling is wrong whilst others
choose to criticize the way the lottery revenue is spent.
Questions 29 to 32 are based on the passage
you have just heard.
29.What will the Caswells do with the money they won?
30.According to the passage,
how much has British government paid out for lottery?
31.What is NOT the application of lottery revenues
by the UK government?
32.Why do many people oppose the UK lottery ?
Passage Three
Through the years of being an advisor at the university,
I've often been requested to give suggestions about
how to handle "information anxiety".
Now let me give you some advice.
First of all, what is "information anxiety"?
Well, as you know, we are bombarded daily by books,
magazines, newspapers, television, and radio.
We are hit with bills, letters, and reports.
All of this can cause quite a lot of anxiety.
It's because we are living in the "information age"
that we get this bombardment of information everyday.
So today let me give you some organizing tips
that should make your life easier.
First of all, when you get your mail,
open it and sort it right away.
Get rid of all junk inserts,
and then sort the mail into four categories:
to do, to pay, to read, and to file.
Be realistic about your reading.
Check the magazines you subscribe to on a regular basis.
If you find yourself falling behind in your reading,
let some of those subscriptions go.
And if you are one of those people
who like to clip out articles to read later,
then do some screening first
and be sure to clip only the most important articles
for reading later.
You should have a filing system,
but don't use your files as a dumping ground.
Make it a rule to clean out your files and papers
at least once a year, more often if possible.
Spend five or ten minutes each day
cleaning up your desk and prioritizing your work
for the next day.
The following day will get off to a much better start
if your desk is organized and you are not faced
with overwhelming piles of paper.
Don't use the top of your desk as a storage area.
It should be a work area, with plenty of room to work.
Questions 33 to 35 are based on the passage
you have just head.
33.According to the speaker,
what should the listeners do
when they first get their mail?
34.What should people do
with their magazine subscriptions
if they are always behind in their reading?
35.How often does the speaker suggest
that the listeners clean out their files?
Section C
Directions:
In this section,
you will hear a passage three times.
When the passage is read for the first time,
you should listen carefully for its general idea.
When the passage is read for the second time,
you are required to fill in the blanks
numbered from 36 to 43
with the exact words you have just heard.
For blanks numbered from 44 to 46
you are required to fill in the missing information.
For these blanks,
you can either use the exact words
you have just heard or write down the main points
in your own words.
Finally, when the passage is read for the third time,
you should check what you have written.
Now, listen to the passage
Nursing, as a typically female profession,
must deal constantly with the false impression
that nurses are there to wait on the physician.
As nurses, we are licensed to provide nursing care only.
We do not have any legal or moral obligation to any physician.
We provide health teaching,
assess physical as well as emotional problems,
coordinate patient related services,
and make all our nursing decisions
based upon what is best or suitable for the patient.
If in any circumstance
we feel that a physician’s order is inappropriate or unsafe,
we have a legal responsibility to question that order,
or refuse to carry it out.
Nursing is not a nine-to-five job with every weekend off.
All nurses are aware of that before they enter the profession.
The emotional and physical stress,
however, that occurs due to odd working hours is a prime reason
for a large amount of the career dissatisfaction.
It is sometimes required that we work overtime,
and that we change shifts four or five times a month.
That destructs our sleeping and eating habits,
and isolates us from everything
except job related friends and activities.
The quality of nursing care is being affected dramatically
by these situations.
Most hospitals are now staffed by new graduates,
as experienced nurses finally give up trying to change the system.
Consumers of medically related services
have evidently not been affected enough
yet to demand changes in our medical system.
But if trends continue as predicted,
they will find
that most critical hospital care will be provided by new,
inexperienced, and sometimes inadequately trained nurses.
Now the passage will be read again
