  [00:00.00]That is the end of Part B.
[00:06.32]Part C  You will hear three dialogues or monologues1.
[00:15.52]Before listening to each one,
[00:19.80]you will have time to read the questions related to it.
[00:24.97]while listening, answer each question by choosing A,B,C or D.
[00:34.95]After listening,you will have time to check your answer.
[00:40.65]You will hear each piece once only.
[00:46.52](1)Questions 11--13
[00:51.80]are based on the following talk about Mark Twain,a well-known American writer.
[00:59.61]You now have 15 seconds to read questions 11--13.
[01:08.10]11.The speaker focuses on which aspect of Mark Twain's life?
[01:10.11]12.What job did Twain especially love?
[01:14.97]13.What connection does the speaker suggest
[01:20.14]between Twain's travels and his writings?
[01:24.74]Mark Twain,who wrote the story we are going to read,
[01:31.64]traveled quite a lot,often because circumstances,
[01:37.62]usually financial circumstances, forced him to.
[01:43.21]He was born in Florida,Missouri,in 1835,
[01:50.50]and moved to Hannibal,Missouri,with his family when he was about four years old.
[01:57.08]Most people think he was born in Hannibal,but that isn't true.
[02:03.27]After his father died when he was about 12,
[02:08.44]Twain worked in Hannibal for a while
[02:12.73]and then left so that he could earn more money.
[02:17.43]He worked for a while as a typesetter on various newspapers
[02:24.04]and then got a job as a river pilot on the Mississippi.
[02:29.63]Twain loved this job and many of his books show it.
[02:35.53]The river job didn't last however,because of the outbreak of the Civil War.
[02:42.22]Twain was in the Confederate army for just two weeks,
[02:47.39]and then he and his whole company went west to get away from the war and the army.
[02:55.28]In Nevada and California,Twain prospected2 for silver and gold without much luck,
[03:02.99]but did succeed as a writer.
[03:07.19]When that happened,Twain traveled around the country
[03:12.68]giving lectures and earning enough money to go to Europe.
[03:18.09]Twain didn't travel much the last 10 years of his life
[03:23.99]and he didn't publish much either.
[03:28.09]Somehow his travels, even when forced, inspired his writings.
[03:35.88]Like many other popular writers,
[03:40.08]Twain derived3 much of the materials for his writing
[03:45.78]from the wealth and diversity of his own personal experiences.
[03:54.19]You now have 30 seconds to check your answers to questions 11--13.
[04:04.24]11.The speaker focuses on which aspect of Mark Twain's life?
[04:06.54]A.his travels  B.his novels  C.his finances  D.his family
[04:09.03]12.What job did Twain especially love?
[04:13.44]A.typesetter  B.river pilot  C.soldier  D.prospector4
[04:15.43]13.What connection does the speaker suggest
[04:17.41]between Twain's travels and his writings?
[04:19.40]A.His stories were inspired by his travels.
[04:18.40]B.His travels prevented him from writing.
[04:20.41]C.He traveled in order to relax from the pressure of writing.
[04:24.51]D.He traveled around in order to publicize his writings.
[04:28.58](2) Questions 14--16 are based on the following conversation about a walkathon.

[04:51.26]15.How is money raised in the walkathon?
[04:56.01]16.How much money has each of Joe's friends pledged to him?
[05:02.46]W:Hey Joe,what is all this talk about the benefit walkathon this weekend?
[05:11.06]M:Don't you know? Most of the residents in Packer Hall
[05:16.83]are going to try to walk the seven miles
[05:21.82]from the Engineering Library across campus and down to City Hall
[05:28.51]in an effort to raise money for the new children's hospital.
[05:33.60]W:Sounds like a good idea.
[05:37.18]But I don't understand where the money comes from.
[05:41.47]M:Well,a few days before the walkathon,
[05:46.66]each participant goes around asking people to pledge just a certain amount of money
[05:53.77]for each mile that he or she expects to walk in the event.
[05:59.67]Then,after the walkathon is over
[06:04.48]the participants go back to those same people,
[06:09.36]collect the money pledged,and send it in to the hospital,
[06:15.16]W:So you mean if someone pledges,say,
[06:19.97]a dollar a mile,and you walk five miles,you get five dollars.
[06:26.76]M:That's right.
[06:29.74]Of course,most of my friends aren't such big spenders.
[06:35.25]The biggest pledge I've got so far is twenty-five cents a mile.
[06:41.16]W:And how many people've made pledges for you?
[06:46.14]M:Eleven so far.Say,how about making it even a dozen?
[06:53.54]W:Sure,if you do the same for me.
[06:58.42]The walkathon sounds like a perfect opportunity for me to break in my new pair of sport shoes.
[07:08.92]You now have 30 seconds to check your answers to questions 14--16.
[07:17.13]14.Who is going to participate in the walkathon?

[08:05.11]18.What would be a good reason for buying the product?
[08:11.09]19.According to the woman,what is an advantage of the new product?
[08:16.79]20.When will the new product be available?
[08:21.10]W:I've been reading about a new snack food.It's made from fish.
[08:29.09]Have you heard anything about it?
[08:32.49]M:No,I haven't,but I don't like fish very much anyway.
[08:38.68]W:Not too worry.Although it's made primarily from fish,
[08:44.45]it actually doesn't have a fishy5 taste.
[08:49.13]In fact,it can be flavored with tomato,cheese,or chocolate for instance.
[08:56.31]M:How can it not taste fishy?
[09:00.41]Do you know how this snack food is made?
[09:05.32]W:First the fish is minced6 and cooked and fermented7.
[09:12.22]Then water and starch8 are added to make a dough9.
[09:17.32]M:It sounds awful.
[09:21.10]W:Actually the dough is very bland10 at that point,
[09:25.99]so the flavorings are added to give it some taste,
[09:31.00]M:Well,it still sounds a Little strange.
[09:36.20]But I suppose this product will at least be low calorie and high protein,
[09:42.78]like a health food.   W:Yes,you could call it that.
[09:47.90]And it has a long shelf life,so it won't spoil quickly.
[09:54.30]It is also easy to digest and can be made from types of fish
[10:00.99]that usually aren't eaten,or from high grade fish by-products.
[10:08.10]M:Mm,have you got any samples?
[10:12.80]I might be willing to try the cheese-flavored variety.
[10:18.10]W:No,none of it seems to be available yet.
[10:22.99]As I understand it,
[10:26.10]this fish snack food probably won't be in the stores for another couple of years.
[10:32.89]So you'll have a while to get used to the whole idea.
[10:38.09]M:A couple of years,ah?
[10:42.16]It may just take me that long,but thanks for telling me about it.
[10:50.55]You now have 40 seconds to check your answers to questions 17--20.
[10:59.53]17.What seems to surprise the man about the new product?
[11:01.62]A.its variety of colors.  B.its unusual texture11.

[11:27.40]D.A high grade of fish is used in its preparation.

[14:25.38]W:I saw a really interesting program on TV last night.
[14:33.68]It talked about the types of things that record companies have to be careful with
[14:40.58]when they come out with new CDs.
[14:44.58]M:What do you mean?
[14:47.76]W:Well,they have to be careful not to offend people--
[14:53.75]especially parents of young kids
[14:58.16]who might buy a CD that contained violent content or used strong language.
[15:05.95]M:How can that be avoided?
[15:09.26]W:Well,don't you remember when that woman
[15:14.36]--some senator's wife,I think--made a fuss over this issue?
[15:20.97]It's not really a law,but music companies are now encouraged
[15:26.84]to put a warning label on albums that describe violence or use strong language.
[15:34.34]M:I don't understand.
[15:37.42]Doesn't that reduce the musicians freedom of speech?
[15:42.83]W:Not really.Musicians still have a right to free speech,
[15:48.63]but the message on the label says, "Buyer,be careful:

[16:01.43]You agree with that,don't you?
[16:05.24]M:I don't know.I still think the whole thing is funny and unreasonable15.
[16:12.14]Musicians should have the right to say what they want to
[16:17.94]without having to have a warning label put on their music,
[16:23.14]I mean,who gets to decide what is considered offensive and what isn't.
