Woman The speaker we invited to our economics club meeting last night was fantastic. Narrator What does the man mean? He did not attend the meeting. He has heard the speaker before. He is not a member of the economics club. After each conversation or talk, you will hear some questions. You will hear the conversations and talks and the questions about them only one time. They will not be written out for you. After you hear a question, read the four possible answers on the screen and select the best answer by clicking on it.
Answer the questions on the basis of what is stated or implied by the speakers in the talks or conversations. Here is an example. On the recording, you hear: Narrator Listen to a professor talking in a biology class. Woman Last class we looked at the nests of various species of birds. These are called parasite birds. As you remember, a parasite is an organism that lives off of another organism.
So these birds lay their eggs in the nests of other bird species and let the other birds raise their young. One type of parasite bird is the cowbird. The cowbird is what we call a generalized parasite because it will lay its eggs in any available nest. The cowbird eggs hatch sooner than other eggs in the nest. Since the young cowbirds get more food, they have a better chance of survival than the other chicks do.
Now listen to a sample question. Narrator What is the talk mainly about? Now listen to another sample question. On the recording, you hear: Now listen to a sample question. Listen to part of a conversation between a student and a professor. Man Wonderful. We have some great activities planned for this year. Man So… you probably know that we meet every Monday and Thursday.
I volunteer to tutor some primary school students in math on Mondays. Man Ahhh… I see. Woman Yeah. Is that OK? If I only come on Thursdays? Man Is it possible to change your tutoring day? Woman Not really. The tutoring counts toward the community service requirement for graduation. And the way the school set up the program, Mondays are for math, so I have to be there. Man Well, it should be OK. After all, not everyone comes to every meeting. Narrator Question 7.
Why does the student go to see the professor? It is an enjoyable activity. It does not have many members. It helped them improve their math skills. What does the student say about the math club meeting times? She is glad the club meets so often. She is not sure when the club meets. She hopes the meeting times can be changed. Why did the student become a volunteer tutor? Listen to a professor talking in a geology class.
Woman : Icebergs are huge chunks of ice that have broken off from glaciers and fallen into the ocean. Because they come from glaciers, icebergs are made up of freshwater, which is full of nutrients. As icebergs melt, the nutrients from the freshwater enter the ocean.
These nutrients provide food for fish of all sizes, who come to feed around the iceberg. Holes in the iceberg provide places for fish to escape from predators, such as seabirds. While icebergs can help provide a great habitat for fish, they can make life difficult for other animals. For example, huge icebergs near Antarctica sometimes block the path of penguins as they try to migrate from one location to another in order to find food.
Narrator Question What is the professor mainly talking about? What does the professor say about the freshwater in icebergs? It is a different color than frozen seawater.
It comes from many sources. It contains food that fish eat. Why are holes in icebergs important? Fish use the holes to hide from predators. Holes cause icebergs to move very quickly.
Icebergs with holes melt slowly. What does the professor say about penguins? They sometimes build nests on icebergs.
They drink freshwater from melting icebergs. They migrate from glaciers by riding on icebergs.
