2019英语专四听力训练conversation8篇


  [00:01.56]SECTION B CONVERSATIONS

  [00:04.86]In this section you will hear two conversations.

  [00:08.88]At the end of each conversation,

  [00:11.22]five questions will be asked about what was said.

  [00:15.38]Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken once only.

  [00:21.37]After each question there will be a ten-second pause.

  [00:26.04]During the pause, you should read the four choices of A, B, C and D,

  [00:33.46]and mark the best answer to each question on Answer Sheet Two.

  [00:39.51]You have 30 seconds to preview the questions.

  [01:13.12]Now, listen to the conversations.

  [01:16.68]CONVERSATION ONE

  [01:19.00]Questions 1 to 5 are based on Conversation One.

  [01:23.32]M: Today, we've Professor McKay on our morning talk show.

  [01:27.22]Good morning, Professor McKay.

  [01:29.33]W: Good morning.

  [01:30.75]M: I've heard that you and your team

  [01:32.87]have just completed a report on old age.

  [01:36.18]W: That's right.

  [01:37.79]M: Could you tell me what your report is about?

  [01:40.55]W: Well, the report basically looks into the various beliefs

  [01:44.91]that people hold about old age and tries to verify them.

  [01:49.73]M: And what do you think your report can achieve?

  [01:52.84]W: We hope that it will somehow

  [01:54.55]help people to change their feelings about old age.

  [01:58.77]The problem is that far too many of us believe

  [02:01.74]that most old people are poor, lonely, and unhappy.

  [02:06.71]As a result, we tend to find old people, as a group, unattractive.

  [02:12.44]And this is very dangerous for our society.

  [02:16.52]M: But surely we cannot escape the fact

  [02:19.12]that many old people are lonely and many are sick.

  [02:22.94]W: No, we can't.

  [02:24.85]But we must also remember that the proportion of such people

  [02:28.65]is no greater among the 60-70 age group

  [02:32.51]than among the 50-60 age group.

  [02:36.19]M: In other words,

  [02:37.14]there is no more mental illness, for example,

  [02:39.60]among the 60s-70s than among the 50s-60s.

  [02:44.03]W: Right! And why should there be?

  [02:47.88]Why should we expect people to suddenly change

  [02:51.44]when they reach their 60th or 70th birthday

  [02:55.10]any more than they did when they reached their 21st?

  [02:59.21]M: But one would expect there to be more physical illness

  [03:02.26]among old people, surely.

  [03:04.46]W: Why should one expect this?

  [03:06.68]After all, those people who reach the age of 65 or 70

  [03:11.79]are the strong among us.

  [03:13.99]The weak die mainly in childhood,

  [03:16.45]then in their 40s and 50s.

  [03:19.40]M: Do you find that young people these days

  [03:22.11]are not as concerned about their parents

  [03:24.31]as their parents were about theirs?

  [03:27.12]W: We have found nothing that suggests

  [03:29.17]that family feeling is either dying or dead.

  [03:32.98]There do not appear to be large numbers of young people

  [03:36.13]who are trying, for example,

  [03:38.35]to have their dear old mother locked up in a mental hospital.

  [03:42.51]M: Don't many more parents live apart from their married children

  [03:46.08]then used to be the case?

  [03:47.89]W: True,

  [03:49.00]but this is because parents and their married children

  [03:51.91]usually live in separate households

  [03:54.66]because they prefer it that way,

  [03:56.97]not because the children refuse to have mum and dad living with them.

  [04:01.72]M: Is this a good thing, do you think?

  [04:04.23]W: I think that it's an excellent arrangement.

  [04:07.19]We all like to keep part of our lives private,

  [04:10.25]even from those we love dearly.

  [04:12.86]I certainly don't think

  [04:14.39]that it's a sign of the increased loneliness of old age.

  [04:19.10]Questions 1 to 5 are based on Conversation One.

  [04:23.35]1. What is Professor McKay's report about?

  [04:37.46]2. What is the purpose of Professor McKay's report?

  [04:52.07]3. What do we learn from the conversation

  [04:55.83]about Professor McKay's view?

  [05:07.87]4. What does Professor McKay think about family feeling?

  [05:22.86]5. What is Professor McKay's attitude

  [05:27.01]toward more parents' living apart from their children?

  [05:39.53]This is the end of Conversation One.

  [05:42.99]CONVERSATION TWO

  [05:45.09]Questions 6 to 10 are based on Conversation Two.

  [05:49.19]M: Julie Ross is the author of Practical Parenting.

  [05:52.99]She has been running parenting workshops for about 18 years now.

  [05:57.30]Hey, Julie. Good morning.

  [05:58.86]W: Good morning.

  [06:00.87]M: So let's go right into some of the things that parents used to do,

  [06:05.42]corporal punishment for example,

  [06:07.32]to try and discipline their kids, at least gain control.

  [06:11.53]Firstly, you say that parents should not say "No" all the time.

  [06:16.44]So let's use an example here,

  [06:18.49]my son is playing with the safety pin in the electric socket.

  [06:22.90]I am probably gonna say, Jack, no, don't do that.

  [06:27.47]What's a better way to go about it?

  [06:29.67]W: Well, I actually believe

  [06:31.87]that "no" should be used in those occasions.

  [06:35.43]It should be our word that can stop our children.

  [06:38.99]But if they get desensitized to it,

  [06:41.69]then when you say "no,

  [06:43.57]don't stick that into the socket",

  [06:45.82]they are not gonna be able to listen to it.

  [06:48.83]M: So only on rare occasions

  [06:51.50]when it's absolutely important to use the word "no".

  [06:55.36]What about the I-message?

  [06:57.81]Give me an example of that.

  [06:59.97]W: I am a big believer in I-messages.

  [07:03.33]And they sound like this.

  [07:05.28]When you throw the ball in the house,

  [07:07.79]I feel annoyed because it could break something.

  [07:11.25]I would like you to play with something else instead.

  [07:15.27]What we wanna do here is we want to make it about us

  [07:19.23]in terms of setting the rules, as parents.

  [07:22.84]We are supposed to be the leaders in the house.

  [07:26.20]And now I-message does refer to "I am the parent,

  [07:31.05]I am in charge, and I am comfortable being in charge".

  [07:36.26]M: Tell me how this next concept is.

  [07:39.21]That is the "when and then" rule---the best example I can think of---

  [07:44.63]your children are eating dinner but they wanna go out and play.

  [07:48.23]OK, so, a lot of people will say, hey,

  [07:51.45]if you eat all of the food on your plate, you can go out and play.

  [07:56.32]What's wrong with that?

  [07:57.96]W: Children hear the word "if" as a challenge, as a threat.

  [08:02.47]And they will rise to that challenge. It's like "Really? If…?

  [08:08.51]OK, let's just test that out".

  [08:11.92]But the either-or, or the when-then choices,

  [08:15.75]when you've done these order things.

  [08:18.07]So that it's a work first, play later.

  [08:21.43]When you've done the meal, then you can go outside.

  [08:25.39]M: So they don't hear the word "if" as encouragement.

  [08:29.46]They see it as a challenge and they are gonna rebel against it.

  [08:34.11]W: You bet.

  [08:36.02]Questions 6 to 10 are based on Conversation Two.

  [08:40.03]6. What is the conversation mainly about?

  [08:54.54]7. Who is Julie Ross?

  [09:08.47]8. According to the man,

  [09:11.47]when should parents say "no" to their kids?

  [09:24.60]9. What does I-message refer to?

  [09:38.62]10. How do children see the word "if"?

  [09:51.74]This is the end of Conversation Two.
