  Lesson 2
PART B Macro-Listening
Passage I
Teachers' Complaints
I. Tapescript
Teachers often complain that students don't do their homework properly and that they are constantly arriving at school red-eyed and yawning due to lack of sleep.
It appears that there are two main explanations for this phenomenon. Firstly, many young children stay up late to watch television. Programs suitable for them may finish as late as eight o'clock. No child wants to be an exception in an age of conformity1 and admit not having seen what everybody else has. Secondly2, a growing number of older children, particularly those approaching school-leaving age, are taking up part-time jobs mainly involving evening or weekend work. They feel that working experience, not academic qualifications, will help them find jobs on leaving school. One can sympathize with both groups of children but it doesn't make a teacher's life any easier.
Passage 2
Education in the U.S.A.
I. Tapescript
Education in the United States is usually divided into four levels. These are early childhood, elementary, secondary, and higher education. School attendance3 is required in every state of the country, and in most states students must attend school until the age of 16.
The first level is early childhood education. Its main purpose is to prepare children for school.
The second level is elementary education. Education at this level is divided into six or eight grades, and children learn reading, arithmetic, writing, social studies and science. They also have art, music and physical education.
The third level is secondary education. It is for junior and senior high school students. Some students take courses to prepare themselves for college. Other students take technical or vocational4 courses that prepare them for jobs after they graduate from high school.
Higher education continues after high school. There are many kinds of institutions of higher education. Technical institutes offer two-year programs in electronics5, engineering, business and other subjects. After two years at a junior college, students receive an associate degree and then they can continue at a four-year college.
