Unit 3

Warming Up

What is important for living a life meaning? Successfully passing the tests for your graduation? Or a handsome(丰厚的,大量的)six-figure income? Both of them are nothing compared to the lessons taught to you by simple people with good hearts.

Read The Right Person for the Time and you will be aware of what is really important in life---give and sacrifice(牺牲). For a meaningful life, you must give your time, wealth, or whatever, to those who are in need. This takes courage, faith(信念,信任, and strength.

Stay with us and be ready to give and sacrifice. The rewards for doing so are great. Give and sacrifice is the choice to make you great, loving, and helpful to others. Doing it also brings more meaning to your life.

Understanding Short Conversations

Now you will hear ten short conversations. A question will follow each conversation. Listen carefully and choose the best answer from the four possible choices.

1. W: In order to have a meaningful life, you must be ready to give and sacrifice.

M: I agree totally. And I try to remember this every day.

Q: What will be possible if you give and sacrifice according to the woman?

2. W: Do you think we should give aid to people in need?

M: I think it’s the least we should do for them.

Q: What should be done for people in need, according to the man?

3. M: Believe it or not, my baseball coach taught me a lot about being kind.

W: That really isn’t so unusual. After all, it isn’t always parents who teach us.

Q: Who taught the man to be kind?

4. W: Why do you let your little sister cling to you all the time?

M: Since our parents died, she needs me more. I can’t push her away.

Q: Why does the little sister need the man more?

5. W: My mother never complained about hard work in front of the family.

M: Wow, that’s something to learn from!

Q: What did the woman’s mother never complain about?

6. W: You’ve got to meet my father. He’s handicapped(有生理缺陷的,智力低下的) and he has a lot to share.

M: I’d like to. You just tell me when.

Q: Why should the man meet the woman’s father?

7. M: I saw you talking to your mother at dusk(黄昏,日落).

W: Yeah, even though she’s busy she always finds time to talk to me. That’s why I love her so much.

Q: Why does the woman love her mother?

8. W: Hey, I heard you spend4 your evenings at the home for the elderly.

M: Some evenings. I’d like to go more, but I don’t have time.

Q: How does the man feel about going to the home for the elderly?

9. W: You are the first person to extend help when I needed it.

M: Don’t worry about it, that’s what friends are for.

Q: Why does the man tell the woman NOT to worry?

10. W: My mother never interrupted me while I told her my problems.

M: Sometimes that’s the best way to help someone.

Q: What did the mother do to help the woman?

Understanding a Long Conversation

Now you will hear a long conversation followed by five questions. Listen carefully and choose the best answer from the four possible choices.

W: I heard a bang on my way to class this morning.

M: Some guy brought a gun to school and tried to shoot someone.

W: You’re kidding! Is everyone OK?

M: Yeah. The teacher managed to take the gun from him.

W: Our history teacher?

M: That’s the one.

W: He never stops amazing me.

M: He was definitely the right person at the right time. After he hit the student and grabbed the gun, he talked to the boy about his problems. While I was on the phone with the police and the parents, he was holding the student. If I was not mistaken, I thought the student was crying.

W: Did the teacher help the boy solve his problems?

M: I don’t think so. The student was clearly bothered by something pretty big. I don’t think problems like that can be solved so quickly. But when the police came to take him away, our teacher told him that he would see him again.

The friendship and sympathy of a special person changed my life, and I’d like to tell you about it. Looking at me now, you might not guess that I was not very popular when I started my university studies. I was thin and didn’t look very handsome with my glasses. In fact, my classmates still laughed at(嘲笑)me, just as they did in high school.

One day, when I was leaving the science building, someone ran past me and knocked the books out of my hands.

I was feeling sad and lonely. But then, someone else approached1 me and helped me pick up2 my book. That day, I made my first university friend. Suddenly, life improved. I helped him with his studies. And he helped me with everything else. He taught me how to dress right, how to talk to girls, and above all, how to be social.

1. What changed the speaker’s life?

2. How was life at the university similar to the speaker’s life in high school?

Supplementary Listening

Task 1

Now you will hear a long conversation followed by five questions. Listen carefully and choose the best answer from the four possible choices.

M: Hello?

W: Hello. I’m calling from the university.

M: I was hoping to hear from(收到…的来信) you. Have I been accepted(录取)?

W: We’ll send that information by mail. But that isn’t why I’m calling.

M: What can I do for you?

W: We’ve received your application to enter our school, but I’m afraid that you didn’t fill it all out. In the place where we request family information, you wrote that you have a mother and a younger sister.

M: Uh-huh.

W: Well, you didn’t mention anything about your father.

M: Is it necessary?

W: Yes. I’m afraid so. We like to keep complete records.

M: OK. The truth is that my father wasn’t around to help me in my growing up.

W: I’m sorry.

M: It’s fine. My mother taught me the value of being honest, working hard, and being kind. She did this while working two jobs.

W: She sounds great.

M: She is. And she’s the only real parent I have.

1. What was the man expecting to find out?

2. How will the university let the man know whether he is accepted or not?

Task 2

Now you will hear a passage followed by five questions. Listen carefully and

choose the best answer from the four possible choices.

Being nasty and impatient has advantages. For example, since I am not nice, I tend to get what I want. People listen to me, and I don’t have many problems.

There are people in this world who are caring. I suppose it is good that our world has such people, because they help others. Still, I try not to learn anything from these good people. Goodness, after all, has a price.

My friend is one of those good people. He once saved a child from a fire. He was the right man at the right time. The child was lucky. My friend was there and not me, because I would’ve been reluctant(不情愿的) to help. In fact, I probably wouldn’t have helped. Fires, you know, are dangerous.

By thinking about myself first, I’ve saved myself from being hurt or uncomfortable. But sometimes I wonder whether my friend has the better life.

1. What does the speaker think about being nasty and impatient?

2. Why is it good that the world has caring people?

3. Why does the speaker NOT want to be good?

4. How would the speaker have respond to the fire?

5. What does the speaker wonder about?
