[02:37.70]The car rolls when I park it on a hill.
[02:40.42]Q:Where does the conversation most probably take place?
[02:44.28]Sectio B
[02:45.56]Passage One
[02:46.77]One of the primary materials used in the construction of buildings and roads is cement6
[02:52.80]a powder made primarily7 from limestone8 and clad.
[02:56.64]Even though the ancient Egyptians and Romans used a kind of cement,it was not until 1824 that an English bricklayer develope
[03:05.13]a cement strong enough for modern roads and buildings.
[03:08.11]While experimenting in his kitchen
[03:10.33]the bricklayer found that a mixture of limestone and clad
[03:13.54]that had been heated together formed a hard
[03:16.26]stone like chunk9 as it cooler
[03:18.79]When this substance was ground into a find powder it could be stored indefinitely.
[03:24.90]When the powder was mixed with water
[03:27.15]it made an excellent quality of cement that quickly hardened10 in sunlight or even under water.
[03:33.13]With only a few variations11
[03:35.41]this is how cement is made today.
[03:37.89]11. What is the main topic of the talk?
[03:41.13]12. Who developed the kind of cement that is used today?
[03:44.86]13. What was significant12 about the new kind of cement?
[03:49.28]Passage Two
[03:50.48]In America, where labor13 costs are so high
[03:53.72]"do-it-your-self" is a way of life.
[03:55.70]Many people repair their own cars
[03:58.21]build their own garages, even remodel14 their own houses.
[04:01.95]Soon they many also be writing their own books.
[04:04.98]In Hollywood there is a company that publishes children's books with the aid of computers.
[04:09.76]Although other book companies also publish that way
[04:13.41]this particular company is very unusual.
[04:16.37]It "personalizes" the books by having the computer make the reader the leading character in the story.
[04:22.16]Here is how they do it.
[04:23.37]Let us say your child is named Jenny.
[04:25.87]She lives on Oak15 Drive in St.Louie
[04:28.62]has a dog named Spot, a cat named Tabby
[04:31.86]and three playmates whose are Betsy,Sandy and Jodo.
[04:36.06]The computer uses this information to fill out a story that has already been prepared and illustrate16
[04:41.99]The story is then printed with standard equipment as a hardcover book.
[04:46.35]A child who receives such a book might say
[04:49.28]"This book is about me
[04:51.00]the company therefore calls itself the "Me-books Publishing Company".
[04:56.25]Children like the me-books because they like to see in print their own names
[05:00.49]and the names of their friends and their pets
[05:02.86]But more important
[05:04.35]"Personalization" has been found to be an important tool in developing enthusiasm17 for reading.
[05:10.33]Me-books are thus helping18 a child to learn how to read by appealing
[05:14.80]to that natural desire to see his own name in print.
[05:18.54]14. What is the subject of the passage?
[05:21.67]15. What characteristics does the company have?
[05:25.38]16. What's the purpose of the me-books?
[05:29.12]Passage Three
[05:30.89]Every word has its own story.
[05:32.96]So does the word "Yankee".
[05:35.52]Where did the word come from?
[05:37.27]What does it meat?
[05:38.81]And how did it get into the language.
[05:41.00]A number of people believe that the word "Yankee" comes from a Scottish word
[05:45.44]meaning sharp and clever.
[05:47.69]But most experts agree that the word comes from Holland.
[05:50.82]Many years ago the Hollanders who made cheese were called "John Cheese" by the German.
[05:57.15]Then some of these Hollanders came to America in the Early 1600s.
[06:02.11]They settled near the New England colonist19.
[06:04.88]The Hollanders were great farmers and they laughed at the colonist
[06:08.38]in the north who tried to build farms in the mountain rock
[06:12.14]And so the Hollanders gave their own nickname20 "John Cheese" to the New England colonist
[06:18.02]In Dutch "John Cheese" was spelt J-A-N-J-E-E-S and pronounced "Yankees".
[06:27.47]During the American Civil War
[06:29.83]that name "Yankee" took on a wider meaning.
[06:32.83]The soldiers in the northern state
[06:34.55]were called "Yankees" by the men of the southern army.
[06:37.51]During World War I
[06:39.31]the nickname "Yankee" spread to Europa.
[06:41.79]The word "yankee" was shortened21 to "Yank"
[06:44.56]and the words "The Yanks are coming" brought tears and job
[06:48.40]to the people of the Allied22 Nation
[06:50.38]Today,the word "Yankee" is known throughout the world as another name for an American.
[06:55.69]17.What did the speaker tell us?
[06:55.69]18.According to most experts, where did the word come from?
[07:00.15]19.What did the word "Yankees" refer to during the American Civil War?
[07:06.27]20.What does the word "Yankee" mean today
