e can get about quite conveniently. Q: What do we learn from the conversation? 2. M: I??m going to drop my Information Science class. It means too early in the morning. W: Is that really the good reason to drop the class, Tony? Q: What does the woman mean? 3. W: If you aren??t doing anything particular, shall we see the new play at the Grand Theater tonight? M: Sounds great. But I??ve got to go over my notes for tomorrow??s midterm. Q: What does the woman imply? 4. M: What do you think of the prospects for online education?

W: If you are referring to my winning the English Speech Contest, I don??t think it??s such a big deal. You know I??ve spent two summer vacations learning English in Canada. Q: What do we learn about Li Ming from the conversation? 9. M: Would you pass me the Sports Section please?

W: If the weather is this hot tomorrow, we may as well give up the idea of playing tennis in the afternoon. M: Oh, I don??t think it??ll last long. The weather forecast says it will cloud over by mid-afternoon Q: What does the man mean? Passage One There are a lot of good cameras available at the moment??most of these are made in Japan but there are also good quality models from Germany and the USA. We have investigated a range of different models to see which is the best value for money. After a number of different tests and interviews with people who are familiar with the different cameras being assessed, our researchers recommend the Olympic BY model as the best auto-focus camera available at the moment. It costs $200 although you may well want to spend more??perhaps as much as another $200??on buying additional lenses and other equipment. It is a good Japanese camera, easy to use. Equivalent German models tend to be heavier and
slightly less easy to use, whereas the American versions are considerably more expensive. The Olympic BY model weighs only 320 grams which is quite a bit less than other cameras of a similar type. Indeed one of the other models we looked at weighed almost twice as much. Similarly, it is smaller than most of its competitors, thus fitting easily into a pocket or a handbag. All the people we interviewed expressed almost total satisfaction with it. The only problem was the slight awkwardness in loading the film. 2005?ê1???ó?§????????(CET-4)???????????í Part I Listening Comprehension (20 minutes) Section A Directions: In this section, you will hear 10 short conversations.
