  Talks and Conversations 2

  Questions 15 ~ 18 are based on the following talk.

  If you live in the United States, there are a number of ways that you and your family can mix well with the local residents. Many large American cities have sports teams. If you are working with Americans, it would be a good idea to find out about the local sports teams so that you can participate in the almost inevitable discussions about how our team will do this year. Sports review is also a good source of information from which you can learn about the most popular sports in the country.

  Most Americans are car owners and some are even obsessive about the subject. They can spend hours discussing the merits of foreign cars versus American cars, deciding on the best family car or the best sports car. And car-repair is also a popular topic of discussion. You can contribute by talking about cars you have owned, or by sharing information you’ve read in automotive magazines such as Car And Driver or Popular Mechanics.

  Americans watch television almost every night and attend movies regularly. So naturally, television shows and the latest movies become topics for discussion. If you are unable to watch American television or attend American movies, reading the entertainment section of such magazines as Time and Newsweek will keep you up to date on what is popular in America. Reading these magazines will also give you a broad American perspective on current events in both America and the world. They are good resources for information that you can use in discussions.

  15 According to the speaker, why do we need to find out about the local sports teams in America?

  16 What magazines will give you information about American movies?

  17 Whom is the speaker addressing?

  18 What is the main idea of the talk?

  【评析】本文是一篇介绍美国生活的小短文,旨在告知听者一些融入美国生活的方式。其中介绍了美国人对于体育、汽车、影视的喜爱,听者可以投其所好、入乡随俗。难度适中,考查细节理解和主旨理解。在做题时要根据全文内容把握主旨大意,同时要注意举例时候提到的一些细节。

  关键词:mix 融入,混合 sports review 体育评论 obsessive 着迷的 car-repair 修车 attend movies 看电影

  Talks and Conversations 3

  Questions 19 ~ 22 are based on the following conversation.

  M: Well, Shirley, now that we’ve seen the 3 apartments, which one do you like best?

  W: I don’t know Brad. I know one thing. I didn’t like the one on the 68th street.

  M: Neither did I. Let’s cross that one off. That leaves the 72nd street one and the 80th street one.

  W: The one on the 80th street has a better view and a very cheerful kitchen.

  M: Yes, and I like the carpeting in the hall. It was clean, but there was no good place to put a desk.

  W: That’s true. You should always just put it in the corner of the living room. But then you wouldn’t have any privacy and the bedroom was too small.

  M: Right. And I do need to be able to leave my work out on the desk without having it looked into by nosy visitors.

  W: Oh, Brad, we don’t have that kind of visitors. But I do agree the desk shouldn’t be in the living room. It is a constant reminder of unfinished work. What about the 72nd street apartment? It has a dining area; we could eat in the kitchen and put the desk in the dining area. It’s more private there.

  M: Yes, that sounds OK. Only what I didn’t like about that place was the west wind though. It gets quite hard in the late afternoon with the sun beating down on the window.
