PART B Macro-Listening
Passage 1
English Pubs7
I. Tapescript
Pubs are supposed to be the Englishman's favorite meeting place, where he can get together with a few friends over a pint8 of beer and talk about football, or horse racing9, or business.
You may notice that the pub6 is the place for men, but not for women. Even now it is still not quite respectable10 for a woman to go into a pub alone; she must have a man to escort11 and protect her. Perhaps that's partly why pubs depress12 me they are intended mainly to provide for male interests, which are often pretty narrow. I think this male-dominated atmosphere also reminds me of my life back at school, or in the army, neither of which is an experience I much want to relive.
However, I'm obviously13 in the minority. Most Englishmen14 have their local pubs, where they can escape from the pressures of family life or work, and if they are lucky, tell their troubles to a pretty barmaid. Indeed, many men dream of retiring from their 9- 5 jobs and buying a little country pub, where they imagine they'll be the host of a seven-nights-a-week party. This dream usually dies when cleaning up spilled beer at one o'clock in the morning.
Still, there's a pub for every type of man, from the city sophisticate to the rural15 primitive16, and a man for every type of pub. And I must admit that, for someone who doesn't like them, I've spent a lot of time in pubs of various kinds.
Passage 2
A Bread-and-Butter Letter
I. Tapeseript
Dear Mrs Johnson,
It is a pleasure to write this letter because it gives me an opportunity to tell you how much I enjoyed your hospitality17 last weekend. It was my first visit to an American family and, at first, I was very anxious about my limited English and my knowledge of American customs18, Then I saw you and your children waiting for me at the station with warm smiles of welcome on your faces. I immediately knew that everything was going to be all right. You and your wonderful family put me at ease3 right away.
There are many happy memories of the weekend that I will keep with me forever. Above all, I will remember that you made me feel at home. There were so many new and different things for me to see and do. I particularly enjoyed driving through the countryside with Mr Johnson and you and seeing the charming19 colors of the leaves on the trees. I liked playing baseball with your sons, Jimmy and Joey. They were very patient with me and full of fun. Tell them I will teach them how to play soccer next time. I also had a good time at the community square dance on Saturday night. It was my first square dance, and I cannot forget how friendly and kind everyone around was.
I am back at school again now and I am very happy because I know now a real American family and it is one of the nicest families I have ever met. Because my English is still not very good, I cannot express my feelings better. I can only say ‘Thank you’ and hope that someday you will visit my country and I can return your hospitality.
Sincerely yours,
Carlos Gomez
