Understanding Short Conversations

1 W: The president has decided that the current education system must be changed.

  M: Yeah. But the question is what to change and how to change it. I’d like a leader who has real ideals for how things could be done!

Q : what can we infer from the conversation?

2 W: A new language school from England gas gotten a lot of attention because of it success in teaching students English.

  M: I saw something on the news about it. I should ask my teacher what he thinks.

  Q: How does the man know of the English language school?

 

3 W: My daughter’ college entrance exam is coming up, and I don’t think she’s ready.

  M:You might want to send her to a test preparation school, modeled on the schools in Japan.   Students there do quite well.

  Q: why does the man recommend the test preparation school?

 

4 W: Our school has started offering classes in Chinese philosophy and religions.

  M: I’ve actually taken some of these classes, as well as a Chinese cooking class. And now i want to visit China to see how the people live.

 Q: What does the man want to learn about when he travels to china?

 

5 W: do you have any ideas for how i could improve my study skills?

  M: there are a lot of special techniques and even classes on the subject of study skills, but I think you should forget about all of that. Just study more!

  Q: what should the woman do?

 

6 W: I’ve been thinking a lot about how i could become happier. But i don’t know what to do.

  M: Well, I think you should give up on the idea that money brings happiness. Try learning from poor, simple farmers. They always seem happy.

  Q: What does the man think of the farmers?

 

7 W: Well, I can’t see why you are travelling to Germany.

  M: I know you want me to stay here, but my boss is sending me. I’ m supposed to have a look at a factory there and learn something from it.

  Q: Why is the man travelling to Germany?

 

8 W: When the meeting begins, I’d like you to introduce the method of negotiation you learned while you were in Japan.

  M: OK. Do you have plans to discuss how these methods can be used, or can l do that?

  Q: What are the speaker talking about?

 

9 W: While you’re away in Australia, I’d like you to learn all you can about Australian business, anything we can use to make our company better.

M: OK, I will. I’ll work hard and make the best of this opportunity

Q: What is the problem relationship between the two speakers?

 

10 W: After trying new education methods from Germany, Japan, and India, I’m still shocked to find that nothing is helping our students here  improve.

  M: Maybe the methods aren’t successful outside of their our countries and we should stick to our local British ways.

  Q: where are the speakers?

 

Understanding a Long Conversation:

M: Mandy has been working really hard to get into a good college. I wonder whether there’s anything we can do to help.

W: Well, we could send her a juku.

M: A what ? That sounds Japanese.

W: It is Japanese. A juku is a Japanese school that prepares students for the college entrance examination.

M: There are Japanese schools here in the United States?

W: Not quite. There are schools here that are in the style of the Japanese ones. And they are very successful in preparing students for big exams.

M: That sounds good, but I don’t think Mandy would want to leave the school she’s at now.

W: She wouldn’t leave. Juku are attended in addition to regular schools. She’d go there every day in the evening. And she’d also attend on weekends.

M: You think Mandy would do that? it’d take a lot of her free time away.

W: Our daughter is a good student, and she wouldn’t mind the extra work involved.

M: OK, maybe we can go and visit one first before we make any decisions. How about tomorrow?

Question for the dialogue above:

Q:1. What are the speakers talking about?

2. What do juku schools prepare students for?

3. What can we infer from the conversation?

4. How does the woman feel about Mandy?

5. What is the problem relationship between the two speakers?

 

Understanding a Passage

Young people go to school to gather information, become respectable members of society, and prepare themselves either for university study offer employment. And it is a teacher’s job to help students accomplish these goals. But are public school teachers doing a good job?

A recent report has an answer-NO. And the details are disturbing. For one, researchers claim that 57% of all class time is wasted. During this time, no teaching or learning is actually taking place, as teacher has given this time to students to do whatever that wish. If students want to talk to friends or play computer games, that is what they do. Secondly, teaching are neglecting their classes by  sometimes not even being in the room with their students. According to the report, teachers spend 33% of the time outside of the classroom where their students can’t see them. Thirdly, and probably most disturbing of all, 10% to 12% of teachers are drunk when they are giving their lessons.

It is clear that something must change if public schools wish to help students accomplish their goals. And it seems that teachers should be supervised if improvements are to be made.

Q:1.What is the passage mainly about?

2. According to the report, what happens during half of the class time?

3. How much of class time do teachers spend out of the sight of their students?

4. What does the speaker find most disturbing?

5. What is the first step toward improving schools?

Supplementary Listening

Task 1

M: You have a foreign roommate, don’t you?

W: No. but you have one, right?

M: That’s right—Leo. He’s form France, and he’s told me a lot about life in his country.

W: I hope Leo’s not teaching you how to find a new girlfriend! You’ve got your hands full with me!

M: hey, don’t worry about that; I’m not going to replace you! He doesn’t teach me about finding new loves or anything like that. You can relax about that.

W: But being romantic is what French are famous for, isn’t it?

M: Come on, you should know better than that. The French are famous for many things, so stop stereotyping them! Leo has opened my eyes to a lot of different things.

W: Like what?

M: well, art, music, literature…the things the French are so accomplished in.

W: How about food? The French are famous for their food.

M: They are, but Leo hasn’t taught me anything about French food. I plan to learn about that when I go to France.

Q: 1. What are the speakers talking about?

   2. Who is Leo?

   3. What does the woman know?

   4. what does the man plan to learn about in France?

   5. What is the relationship between the two speakers?

 

Task 2

No doubt, college can teach you many things that will make you successful in life. Still, there is something you must take care of if you want to continue in school. I’m talking about paying for it. Paying for college is about to get harder. Starting in July, interest rates on new student loans will rise to 6.8 percent from today’s rate of 4.7 percent. In the future, they may reach 7.5 percent or even 10 percent. Here, we see that getting a degree is becoming even more expensive.

On a $20,000 loan, students will be paying about $ 2,5000 more just in interest payments over the life of the loan.

The cost of getting an education is going to prevent a lot of young adults from living alone. Parents are also going to face more difficulties, for they will have to support their children while their children are living at home

If you are a student, you should do what you can do to reduce the amount of money you spend while in college. Try to borrow as little as possible, and try to pay off your debt as soon as you can in order to reduce interest rare payments.

Q: 1. What is the passage about?

   2. What is today’s interest rate on student loans?

   3. What’s the result of the rise in interest rates for student loans?

   4. What causes problems for parents?

   5. What does the speaker advise?
