  2016年12月英语四级听力真题卷一(文字版)

  卷一·真题:

  短文听力1.

  Passage One

  In college, time is scarce, and consequently, very precious. At the same time, expenses in college pile up surprisingly quickly. A part time job is a good way to balance costs while ensuring there is enough time left over for both academic subjects and after-class activities.

  If you are a college student looking for a part time job, the best place to start your job search is right on campus. There are tons of on-campus job opportunities, and as a student, you’ll automatically be given hiring priority. Plus, on-campus jobs eliminate commuting time, and could be a great way to connect with academic and professional resources at your university. Check with your school’s career service or employment office for help to find a campus job. Of course, there are opportunities for part-time work off-campus, too. If you spend a little time digging for the right part time jobs, you’ll save yourself time when you find a job that leaves you with enough time to get your school work done, too. If you are a college student looking for work but worry you won’t have enough time to devote to academic subjects, consider working as a study hall or a library monitor. Responsibilities generally include supervising study spaces to ensure that a quiet atmosphere is maintained. It’s a pretty easy job, but one with lots of downtime-which means you will have plenty of time to catch up on reading, do homework or study for an exam.

  Q16: What does the speaker say about college students applying for on-campus jobs?

  Q17: What can students do to find a campus job according to the speaker?

  Q18: What does the speaker say is a library monitor’s responsibility?

  Passage Two

  Agricultural workers in green tea fields near Mt. Kenya are gathering the tea leaves. It is beautiful to see. The rows of tea bushes are straight. All appears to be well. But the farmers who planted the bushes are worried. Nelson Kibara is one of them. He has been growing tea in the Kerugoya area for 40 years.

  He says the prices this year have been so low that he has made almost no profit. He says he must grow different kinds of tea if he is to survive.

  Mr. Kibara and hundreds of other farmers have been removing some of their tea bushes and planting a new kind of tea developed by the Tea Research Foundation of Kenya. Its leaves are purple and brown. When the tea is boiled, the drink has a purple color. Medical researchers have studied the health benefits of the new tea. They say it is healthier than green tea and could be sold for a price that is three to four times higher than the price of green tea.

  But Mr. Kibara says he has not received a higher price for his purple tea crop.

  He says the market for the tea is unstable and he is often forced to sell his purple tea for the same price as green tea leaves. He says there are not enough buyers willing to pay more for the purple tea.

  Q19. Why have tea farmers in Kenya decided to grow purple tea?

  Q20. What do researchers say about purple tea?

  Q21. What does Mr. Kibara find about purple tea?

  Rescue efforts were underway Thursday morning for 17 miners who were stuck in an elevator below ground at a Cargill rock salt mine near Lansing, New York, according to Marcia Lynch.

  Public information officer with Tompkins County’s emergency response department, emergency workers have made contact with the miners via a radio. And they all appear to be uninjured, said Jessica Verfuss, the emergency department’s assistant director.

  Crews have managed to provide heat packs and blankets to the miners so that they can keep warm during the rescue operation, Verfuss said. Details about what led to the workers’ being trapped in the elevator went immediately available. The mine, along New York’s Cayuga Lake, processes salt used for road treatment. It produces about 2 million tons of salt that is shipped to more than 1,500 places in the northeastern United States, the rock salt mine is one of three operated by Cargill with the other two in Louisiana and Ohio.

  Q3. What does the news report say about the salt miners?

  Q4.What did the rescue team do?

  Section A - 3

  The U.S. Postal Service announced today that it is considering closing about 3,700 post offices over the next year because of falling revenues.

  Facing an $8.3 billion budget deficit this year, closing post officers is one of several proposals the Postal Service has put forth recently to cut costs. Last week, for example, Postmaster General Pat Donahoe announced plans to stop mail delivery on Saturdays, a move he says could save $3 billion annually.

  “We are losing revenue as we speak,” Donahoe said. “We do not want taxpayer money. We want to be self-sufficient. So like any other business you have to make choices.”

  Dean Granholm the vice president for delivery and post office operations said the first waves of closings would begin this fall. He estimated that about 3,000 postmasters, 500 station managers and between 500 and 1,000 postal clerks could lose their jobs.

  Q5.What is the U.S. Postal Service planning to do?

  Q6.What measure has been planned to save costs?

  Q7.What will happen when the proposed measure come into effect?

  长对话1&2

  Conversation 1

  A: Mrs. Hampton, we've got trouble in the press room this morning.

  B: Oh dear. What about?

  A: One of the press operators arrived an hour and a half late.

  B: But that's a straightforward affair. He will simply lose part of his pay. That's why we have a clock-in system.

  A: But the point is the man was clocked-in at 8 o'clock. We have John standing by the time clock, and he swears he saw nothing irregular.

  B: Is John reliable?

  A: Yes, he is. That's why we chose him for the job.

  B: Have you spoken to the man who was late?

  A: Not yet. I thought I'd have a word with you first. He's a difficult man, and I think there's been some trouble on the shop floor. I've got a feeling that trade union representative is behind this. The manager told me that Jack Green's been very active around the shop the last few days.

  B: Well, what do you want me to do?

  A: I was wondering if you'd see Smith, the man who was late, because you are so much better at handling things like this.

  B: Oh, alright. I'll see him. I must say I agree with you about there being bad feelings in the works. I've had the idea for some time that Jack Green's been busy stirring things up in connection with the latest wage claim. He's always trying to make trouble. Well, I'll get the manager to send Smith up here.

  Q8. What will happen to the press operator who was late for the work according to the woman?

  Q9. What does the man say about John who stands by the time clock?

  Q10. Why does the man suggest the woman see the worker who was late?

  Q11. What does the woman say about Jack Green?

  Conversation 2

  A: Our topic today is about somethings that foreigners nearly always say when they visit Britain. It's 'Why are the British so cold?' And they're talking about the British personality – the famous British 'reserve'. It means that we aren't very friendly, we aren't very open.

  B: So do you think it's true?

  A: It's a difficult one. So many people who visit Britain say it's difficult to make friends with British people. They say we're cold, reserved, unfriendly...

  B: I think it's true. Look at Americans or Australians. They speak the same language, but they're much more open. And you see it when you travel, people - I mean strangers - speak to you on the street or on the train. British people seldom speak on the train. Or the bus. Not in London, anyway.

  A: 'Not in London'. That's it. Capital cities are full of tourists and are never very friendly. People are different in other parts of the country.

  B: Not completely. I met a woman once, an Italian. She's been working in Manchester for two years,

  and no one - not one of her colleagues - had ever invited her to their home. They were friendly to her at work, but nothing else. She couldn't believe it. She said that would never happen in Italy.

  A: You know what they say – 'an Englishman's home is his castle'. It’s really difficult to get inside.

  B: Yeah. It's about being private. You go home to your house and your garden and you close the door. It's your place.

  A: That's why the British don't like flats. They prefer to live in houses.

  B: That’s true.

  Q12. What do foreigners generally think of British people according to the woman?

  Q13. What may British people typically do one the train according to the man?

  Q14. What does the man say about the Italian woman working in Manchester?

  Q15. Why do British people prefer houses to flats?
