II. Basic Listening Practice

  2. Script

W: Oh look! There’s that guy we saw last week, playing football in the park! He looked great in his kit, remember? M: Him? I don’t remember him. I’ve got a terrible memory for faces.

III. Listening In
Script
M: Tell me your secret. You’re suddenly getting excellent marks in every subject, and you used to be a bottom-of ?class student just like me. W: Simple enough. I read an article in a scientific journal that studying with remembering, based on recent research into the brain. M: Aw, that stuff’s old hat: study at the same time every day, be sure your clothes are comfortable, and make sure you have enough light, blah-blah-blah. W: Not so fast, wise guy. I’m talking about principles like “Mental Visualization”, creating a picture in your mind of what is to be remembered. M: Ok, that dies sound different. Id “Association” a principle?you know, you connect what you want to remember with something you’re familiar with? W: Right on! ‘Consolidation” is another. I review my notes right after class and consolidate?or absorb?the new material into what I’ve already learned. M: You’re moving ahead fast with those principles. I swear this weekend I’m going to study sixteen hours a day both Saturday and Sunday. W: Whoa, big guy. That’s not the way. Follow the principle of “Distributes Practice”. Shorter study sessions distributes over several days are better. M: That system is all very well for you; you’ve got a good memory. But what about me? I’ve got a memory like a sieve. W: You’re too modest. There’s nothing wrong with your memory. But memory is like a muscle; it needs exercise. And don’t forget it.
While the man is wondering why the woman is suddenly getting excellent marks, she says she read an article on studying and remembering. It talks about principles like “Mental Visualization”, that is, creating a picture in one’s mind of what is to be remembered. This reminds the man of the principle of “Association”, which means connecting what one wants to remember with something one is familiar with. Then the woman adds the principle of “Consolidation”, or reviewing one’s notes after class and absorbing the new material into what one has already learned. When the man promise to study sixteen hours a day, the woman recommends the principle of “Distributed Practice”, which favors shorter study sessions distributed over several

days. Finally, the woman tells the man that memory is like a muscle, and that it needs exercise.
Task 2: You forget my toast!
Script
An 80-year-old couple was having problems remembering things, so they decide to go to their doctor to see what was wrong with them. They explained to the doctor about the problems they were having with their memory. After checking the couple over, the doctor told them that they were physically okay but might need to start writing things down to help them remember. The couple thanked the doctor and left. Later that night while watching TV, the old woman said to the old man, “Honey, will you please go to the kitchen and get me a dish of ice cream?” Before the man left, she added, “Why don’t you write that down so you won’t forget?” “Nonsense,” said the husband, “I can remember a dish of ice cream!” “Well,” said the wife, “I’d like some strawberries on it. You’d better write that down because I know your memory is failing.” “Don’t be silly,” replied the husband. “There’re only two things: a dish of ice cream and some strawberries. I can surely remember that!” With that, he rushed into the kitchen. After about twenty minutes he returned from the kitchen and handed her a plate of bacon and eggs. The wife took one look at the plate, glanced up at her husband, and said, “Hey, you forget the toast!”

Task3: Memory-Improving Techniques
Script
There are many techniques you can use to improve your memory. Some of them are introduced her. First and foremost, you need to stimulate your memory all the time. To put it simply, you should use your memory as much as possible. It is especially important to try to learn something new. If you work in an office, learn to dance; if you are a dancer,

learn to deal with a computer, if you work with sales, and learn to play chess; if you are a programmer, learn to paint. These added activities stimulate the brain so that I t continues to function. Older people need to pay attention to things they are dealing with. Don’t try to memorize everything that catches your attention; focus on what you consider important. For example, you can take any object such as a pen and concentrate on it. Think on its various characteristics: its material, its function, its color, and so on. Don’t allow any other thought to occupy your mind while you are concentrating in that pen. Another method that can be used is to relax yourself. It is impossible to remember things if you are tense or nervous. So, try holding your breath for ten seconds, and then release it slowly. Association is also a powerful tool to develop your memory. For example, if you cannot remember a person’s name, you can think about a special feature of his face and then link it with his mane.
