Unit 1 DIALOGUE I Back from the Summer Camp A: You know what? I've just come back from a wonderful summer camp. B: You have? Where did you go? A: Mount Tai. B: I've been there too. It's one of China's most beautiful mountains. There're many scenic spots and places of historical interest. I was greatly impressed by its natural beauty when I took a study tour there two years ago. A: It really is a very beautiful tourist attraction. But we went there as campers, not as tourists. It was a study programme organized by our local community committee. B: I bet you had lots of fun there. A: Yes, it was a wonderful experience. You know it was the first time I'd been to a summer camp in five years, and it brought back such sweet memories. B: Were there any other camping groups when you were there? A: Not when we arrived at the foot of the mountain. But soon we were joined by many similar camping groups from other cities. By the time we arrived at the campsite, night had fallen. And we were so happy to see that the campers who arrived there the day before were giving a performance by the campfire. B: You remind me of my last trip there. I wish I had been there with you this time. What did you do at the summer camp? A: Oh, lots of things. Most of the time we studied plants, rocks, insects... things like that. We also had lots of fun, hiking, climbing mountains, taking pictures... B: I guess you had the life of a natural scientist. A: And the life of an athlete, too. B: I had a similar experience during the summer two years ago. I remember my summer camp was subdivided into what we called "hobby groups", such as the music group, the drama group, and the model aircraft and ship group. People sharing similar interests and hobbies worked together. Were there any hobby groups in your programme? A: Yes, of course. We had a number of hobby groups for campers with varied interests. We called them "project groups" because each group worked on a particular project. At the completion of their projects, each group presented their "fruits" to all the campers. Some gave oral reports, some staged an exhibition, and others put on a performance. B: You had a marvellous time this summer! Your story has really brought back happy memories of my own camping experience.
DIALOGUE II Dialogue: Sally Jones, an English language teacher from Oxford University, has just arrived at Beijing Airport. She is going to spend three months here, lecturing and teaching at different colleges and universities. Miss Wang, Secretary of the English Department, and Mr. Yu, Vice Chairman of the English Department, have come to the airport to meet her. Miss Wang: Excuse me, are you Miss Jones? Sally: Yes, that's right.
Miss Wang: Oh, how do you do? I'm Wang Xinfu, Secretary of the English Department. Sally: Oh, yes, Miss Wang, hello. I'm very pleased to meet you. (They shake hands.) Miss Wang: Miss Jones, may I introduce you to Mr. Yu, Vice Chairman of the English Department? Mr. Yu: Hello, Miss Jones, I've been looking forward to meeting you. Sally: How do you do? (They shake hands.) It's very kind of you both to come and meet me at the airport. Miss Wang: Not at all. I hope you had a good flight. Sally: Well, not too bad. It was a bit bumpy as we came in to land; some low clouds, I think. Mr. Yu: Yes, we had a storm here yesterday and the weather is still a bit unsettled. Sally: Oh, dear! I was rather lucky then! Miss Wang: You must be rather tired after your long flight. Sally: Well, yes, I am actually... I've been travelling for 21 hours! Mr. Yu: In that case, I think we should go straight to the hotel. Miss Wang: Yes, I agree. This way then, ... if you'd like to follow me.
READING I Herbert's Homecoming Herbert Marshall was a student at Cambridge, but his hometown was St. Albans. It was August and the family had gone to the seaside. Herbert went to France for his holiday, but he ran out of money, and came home a week earlier than he had expected to. His train didn't get into St. Albans until just before midnight. The last bus had gone, so he had to walk home. He let himself into the kitchen, and as he was feeling hot and sticky, he took off his shirt to have a wash. Suddenly he heard heavy footsteps running up the path. The back door burst open, and he found himself surrounded by policemen. They pushed him into the living-room next door, made him sit down, and began asking him question. "What's your name?" "Where do you live?" "What's in that case?" "What are you doing here?" "I live here," said Herbert, "I've been on holiday." But nobody listened to him. They just went on asking questions. Then suddenly one of the policemen said: "Watch him, Frank ? we'll go and search the house." They left a tall, very young policeman to guard him. "Can I put my shirt on?" asked Herbert. "No," said the policeman, "stay where you are." Then the others came back with an older man, a sergeant. He asked the same questions, but he listened to Herbert's answers. "I live here," said Herbert, "and I want to put my shirt on." The sergeant looked at him thoughtfully. "We'll soon settle this," he said. He went out and came back with a small, sandy-haired man wearing a shabby, brown dressing-gown. It was Herbert's next-door neighbour. He peered at Herbert intently through thick spectacles. "Oh, yes, sergeant," he said, "that is Mr. Marshall." Then he disappeared very quickly.
The policemen all looked dreadfully disappointed. They were convinced they had caught a burglar. "Did he ring you up?" asked Herbert. The police sergeant nodded. "He saw a light and understood your family had all gone away to the seaside." When they had all gone, Herbert made himself a cup of coffee. Unit 2 DIALOGUE I A Trip to Huangshan A: You visited Huangshan during your summer vacation, I heard. How was the trip? B: Oh, it was great! You ought to go there some day if you haven't been there already. A: I certainly will one of these days when I have a chance. I've heard so much about it. What do you think is the best time to go to Huangshan? B: Well, it's very crowded there in summer. You know, summer is always a busy tourist season for resorts like mountains and beaches. And it's too cold to go there in winter, so I wouldn't suggest the winter season, either. Besides, we can't afford the time when school is in session. So I would say the best time for college students to visit Huangshan is the first few days of the summer break when people haven't started doing anything yet. A: I see. How long does the whole the whole trip take, including the time on the road? B: It all depends, really. If you go there by train, four days should be enough. You can also take a bus, which takes a longer time and is less comfortable, but as a trade-off, you'll be able to enjoy lots of country scenes and perhaps you'll save some money, too. Besides, the coach will take you directly to the foot of the mountain, or, if you like, midway up the mountain. A: I'll go by bus, then. But how long does it take from Shanghai? B: A one-way bus ride takes about twelve hours. A: Wow, twelve hours on the road! B: And on narrow winding roads when you're almost there. A: Does the bus stop for a rest on the way? B: Oh, yes, of course. Although there's a john at the back of the coach, it stops every three or four hours for you to relax and stretch yourself, and take meals. A: That sounds good. If I can afford the time, I think I'll take the bus. Incidentally, I heard that Huangshan is famous for its clouds, pine trees and rocks. Could you tell me when is the best time to see the clouds and where I can find the famous pine trees and the unique rock formations? B: Well, as soon as you've made up your mind, I'll tell you what to look for and where to see them. A: Do you think I should go by myself, or take a package tour with a travel agency. B: I can't say which is better. They each have advantages and disadvantages. Anyway, the most important of all is that you must go and see for yourself. A: Thank you very much for all the information. You know, I'm beginning to think about the trip very seriously.
DIALOGUE II Dialogue:
Map of Newtown A stranger standing at point x stops someone and asks him the way to the station. A: Excuse me. B: Yes. A: Could you tell me how to get to the railway station, please? B: The railway station? Let me think... yes, take the third turning on the right and it's opposite the park. A: The third turning on the right. I see... is it far? B: No, not really, only a few minutes. A: Oh, good, thank you very much. B: Not at all. READING I Leaving Home When I told my mother, she looked at me as if I had slapped her face. "What? Live in London?" she said. "I just feel it's time I saw a little more of the world. After all, mum, I'm twenty-two!" Just then, my father came downstairs, looking relaxed as he always did after his Sunday afternoon nap. I had chosen the moment carefully. "Clive wants to leave home. He doesn't want to live with us any more," she told him in a trembling voice. My father's expression changed. "What? You aren't serious, are you, son?" he asked. He sat down at the table opposite me. Perhaps my parents wouldn't have reacted this way if they hadn't spent all their lives in a small village in Wales. And perhaps my mother in particular wouldn't have been so possessive if her only other child hadn't died as a baby. I tried to explain to them that the bank I worked for had offered me a chance to take a job in their head office. But I didn't dare tell them I had already accepted the job. "London's a long way away. We'll hardly see you any more," my father said. "I can come back at weekends, dad." He shook his head, looking more and more like someone who had just been given a few months to live by his doctor. "I don't know, son. I don't know." He shook his head again and then got up and walked out into the garden. My mother and I sat there at the table. In the silence, I could hear the old clock ticking away in the hall. There were tears in my mother's eyes. I know she was going to put pressure on me to give up the idea, and I wondered if I could stand up to it. I even began to wonder if it was wrong of me to want to leave my family, the village and the people I had known all my life to live among the English in their cold, strange capital. She put her hand over mine. "Your father hasn't been well lately. Neither have I. You know that. But we won't stand in your way if it's what you really want," she said. Unit 3 DIALOGUE I
A New Life on the University Campus Lu Hua goes back to her secondary school to visit Wang Laoshi, her former English teacher. Wang Laoshi asks her about her life and study in the English Department at Pujiang University. A: Hello, Lu Hua. Nice to have you back. How are things at the university? B: Everything's fine, Wang Laoshi. Life at the university is so exciting and challenging. A: Do you live on campus? B: Not the whole time... I mean not on weekends. A university rule says that no freshmen should live off campus during the weekdays, unless the university authorities give permission. A: It's a good rule for new students. But you don't have to eat in school cafeterias, do you? B: No, we don't. But we prefer to eat there because there's a wide variety of foods on the menu, which changes every day. Besides, the food service is much better than that of most secondary schools. For one thing, our campus cafeterias are under the management of a professional food service company with an annually-renewable contract. A: I suppose you buy meal plans, then. B: Most of us do. We have IC cards for meals and pay on a monthly basis. A: That's very convenient. Well, how do you like your campus environment in general? B: The university has two campuses, one for freshmen and sophomores, and the other for juniors, seniors and graduate students. My campus is located on the outskirts of the city. It's a new campus, very peaceful, and free from the hustle and bustle of a metropolis. A: And free from all sorts of distractions and diversions that most city dwellers find it hard to escape or ignore. B: Yes, it's another plus when you live away from urban attractions. A: Did you have any orientation programme about campus life for entering students? B: Yes. It was a three-day orientation, including a campus tour. We tried to learn as much as possible about the university. We visited libraries, classroom buildings, language labs, the multimedia resource centre, computer support services, the student club, and the sports stadium. A: Do you freshmen have access to all these resources and technical facilities on a regular basis? B: Absolutely. They are open to all students. As a matter of fact, we're encouraged to make the most of the libraries and technical support services on the campus. A: Being an English major, do you have to speak English with your fellow students and English teachers most of the time? B: Yeah. We're expected to speak English with all our English teachers, whatever courses they teach. We're also encouraged to speak English in the dorm area as much as possible. We're not quite used to this "English only" environment, though. Anyway, we're all trying very hard. A: Good for you. It always takes time to adjust to a new environment. I suppose there are English lectures and talks available to you. B: Yes. They are given to us English majors periodically, and they cover a variety of topics. Not only that, we are encouraged to atten
