  5. Some of the information has been comple ted for you. Write not more than 3 words in each numbered box. You will hear the recording twice. You now have 25 seconds to read the table below. Information about the Hilton Hotel and the Hotel Rossiya
The Hilton Hotel Number of Bedrooms Number of Employees Number of Restaurants Number of Elevators Country of Location U.S. 12 1 2
The Hotel Rossiya 3,200 3,000 3 4 5
Tapescript: M: Hi, Mary. How's everything?W: Fine. You know, John, I'm planning to go to Las Vegas fo r a holiday and would like to stay in a large hotel. Anything to recommend?M: Er? the Hilton Hotel there is quite a large one. It has ? er ? 3,174 bedrooms. It also has 12 restaurants and about 125,000 square feet of convention space. There're a 10-acre recreation deck and a stage s how dining hall. Over 3,600 people now work for it.W: Oh, great! Is it the largest hotel in the U.S.?M: Yes, it is. But it may not be the largest in the world. Er ? as far as I know, the Ho tel Rossiya in Moscow is larger than Hilton. It is a 12-story building that has 3,200 rooms. It can provide accommodation for 6,000 guests. It takes nearly 8 years and a half to spend one n ight in each room. Besides, there's a 21-story "Presidential tower" in the central courtyard. It ha s 15 restaurants and 93 elevators. And it employs about 3,000 people. The ballroom is known as the world's largest. Russians are not allowed to live in that hotel. And foreigners are charge d 16 times more than the very low rate charged Russian officials.W: It's unbelievable ?[fade ou t] Now you will hear the recording again. (The recording is repeated.)

What will the minimum temperature be in the south during the night?
7
On what day of the week do you think this weather forecast was given?
8
What will be the general feeling about the weekend in the Netherlands?
9
What part of England will be cloudy and dry over the weekend?
10
Tapescript W: Hello. It's been another warm and fine day for most of us. Temperatures in south-east Engl and reached twenty-six degrees Centigrade by mid-afternoon, and Brighton had fifteen hours of lovely sunshine. But already the weather is beginning to change, I'm afraid, and during the nigh t showers will slowly move in from the Atlantic to reach south-west England and the southern coast of Wales by early morning.The rest of the country will have a very mild, dry night with minimum temperatures no lower than fifteen degrees in the south, a little cooler ? eleven degr ees or so ? in the north. Any remaining showers in northwest Scotland will pass quickly, to le ave a mild, dry night there too.And now, the outlook for Friday and the weekend. Well, southe rn Europe will once again get the best of the weekend weather, and if your holiday starts this weekend, then southern Spain is the place to go, with temperatures of thirty-four degrees along the Mediterranean coast. At the eastern end of the Med, too, you can expect uninterrupted suns hine and temperatures of up to thirty-two degrees Centigrade in Greece and south-east Italy, but further north the weather's not so settled. Much of France, Belgium and the Netherlands will b e cloudy with occasional rain and maximum temperatures will be around twenty-two degrees ? very disappointing for this time of the year.Scotland and Northern Ireland will have heavy rain for much of the weekend and temperatures will drop to a cool seventeen degrees. Across most of England the weather will be cloudy but mainly dry with sunny periods. And when the sun does come out temperatures could rise to a maximum of twenty-three degrees.
Now you will hear the recording again. (The recording is repeated.) That is the end of Part B.

时代学习网??职业考试网上辅导的家园 Part CYou will hear three dialogues or monologues. Before listening to each one, you will have time to read the questions related to it. While listening, answer ea ch question by choosing A, B, C or D. After listening, you will have time to che ck your answer. You will hear each piece once only.Questions 11-13 are based o n the following talk introducing Emily Dickinson, a well-known American poet. Y ou now have 30 seconds to read questions 11-
  13.
  11. How long did Emily Dickinson live in the house where she was born?[A] al most all her life[B] less than half her life[C] until 1830[D] before 1872
  12. Which of the following is true of Emily Dickinson?[A] She was not a produc tive poet.[B] She saw many of her poems published.[C] She was not a sociable p erson.[D] She had contact only with a few poets.
  13. When was Emily Dickinson widely recognized?[A] after Henry James referred highly to her[B] after seven of her poems were published[C] after her poems be came known to others[D] after she was dead for many years Tapescript: M: Emily Dickinson is one of the greatest American poets. She was born in a ty pical New England village in Massachusetts on December 10, 18
  30. She was the second child of the family. She died in the same house fifty-six years later. Durin g her life time she never left her native land. She left her home state only once. She left her village very few times. And after 1872 she rarely left her house an d yard. In the last years of her life she retreated to a smaller and smaller circle of family and friends. In those later years she dressed in white, avoided strangers, and communicated chiefly through notes and poems even with intimates. The doc tor who attended her illness was allowed to "examine" her in another room, seein g her walk by an opened door. She was thought of as a "strange" figure in her h ome village. When she died on May 15, 1886, she was unknown to the rest of t he world. Only seven of her poems had appeared in print.But to think Emily Dic kinson only as a strange figure is a serious mistake. She lived simply and deliber ately. She faced the essential facts of life. According to Henry James, a famous American novelist, she was one of those on whom nothing was lost. Only by thu s living could Dickinson manage both to fulfill her obligations as a daughter, a si ster, and a housekeeper and to write on the average one poem a day.She read onl y a few books but knew them deeply. Her poems are simple but remarkably rich. Not until 1950s was she recognized as one of the greatest American poets. Section II Use of EnglishRead the following text.

时代学习网??职业考试网上辅导的家园 It was 3:45 in the morning when the vote was finally taken. After six months of arguing and a final 16 hours of hot parliamentary debates, Australia's Northern T erritory became the first legal authority in the world to allow doctors to take the lives of incurably ill patients who wish to die. The measure was passed by the c onvincing vote of 15 to
  10. Almost immediately word flashed on the Internet and was picked up, half a world away, by John Hofsess, executive director of the Ri ght to Die Society of Canada. He sent it on via the group's on-line service, Deat h NET. Says Hofsess: "We posted bulletins all day long, because of course this i sn't just something that happened in Australia. It's world history."The full import may take a while to sink in. The NT Rights of the Terminally Ill law has left p hysicians and citizens alike trying to deal with its moral and practical implications. Some have breathed sighs of relief; others, including churches, right-to-life group s and the Australian Medical Association, bitterly attacked the bill and the haste o f its passage. But the tide is unlikely to turn back. In Australia ? where an aging population, life-extending technology and changing community attitudes have all played their part ? other states are going to consider making a similar law to dea l with euthanasia. In the U.S. and Canada, where the right-to-die movement is gat hering strength, observers are waiting for the dominoes to start falling.Under the n ew Northern Territory law, an adult patient can request death ? probably by a de adly injection or pill ? to put an end to suffering. The patient must be diagnosed as terminally ill by two doctors. After a "cooling off" period of seven days, the patient can sign a certificate of request. After 48 hours the wish for death can be met. For Lloyd Nickson, a 54-year-old Darwin resident suffering from lung cance r, the NT Rights of Terminally Ill law means he can get on with living without t he haunting fear of his suffering: a terrifying death from his breathing condition. "I'm not afraid of dying from a spiritual point of view, but what I was afraid of was how I'd go, because I've watched people die in the hospital fighting for oxyg en and clawing at their masks," he says.
  1. From the second paragraph we learn that[A] the objection to euthanasia is dimi nishing in some countries.[B] physicians and citizens have the same view on euth anasia.[C] technological changes are chiefly responsible for the new law.[D] it tak es time to appreciate the significance of laws passed.
  2. By saying that "observers are waiting for the dominoes to start falling", the aut hormeans that[A] observers are taking a wait-and-see attitude towards the future of euthanasia.[B] there is a possibility of similar bills being passed in the U.S. and Canada.[C] observers are waiting to see the movement end up in failure.[D] the process of the bill taking effect may finally come to a stop.

  3. When Lloyd Nickson is close to death, he will[A] undergo a cooling off perio d of seven days.[B] experience the suffering of a lung cancer patient.[C] have an intense fear of terrible suffering.[D] face his death with the calm characteristic of euthanasia.
  4. What is the author's attitude towards euthanasia?[A] Hostile.[B] Suspi cious.[C] App
