黄冈市 2012 年高三年级三月调考英语试题 录音材料和参考答案
录音材料： Text 1: M: It’s nice and quiet here, away from the noise of the city. And our apartments are new and well furnished. W: It’s a good
place except that it’s a bit far from where we work. Anyway, I’ll talk with my husband tonight and give you a call tomorrow. Text 2: M: Can I help you, madam? W: Oh, yes, I want to report a robbery. M: I see. What has been stolen? Text 3: M: This machine has so many buttons. I can’t figure out which one makes it run. W: You’d better read the instructions first. Pressing the buttons improperly may cause the machine to break down. M: Oh, I see. Text 4: M: What do you think of my new painting? W: Well, the colours are a little too vivid. M: Ah, yes. That’s the point. W: Well, it’s not quite my cup of tea. But we all have different tastes, don’t we? Text 5: W: Were you given or did you earn pocket money as a child? M: I was given half a dollar a week by my father, but on condition that I behaved myself. If I didn’t behave well, I didn’t receive it. W: Parents were much stricter in those days. Text 6: W: I noticed you were late for work again. Is there a problem? M: I’m sorry, but no matter how early I leave my house, I get stuck in traffic and end up late.
W: Well, I’m afraid you can’t keep doing this. We’d better find a way to settle the problem. M: I’ve thought about taking a train or bus, but I take care of my elderly aunt and I have to drive to her house after work. W: I see. In that case, you can come in later and make up the time at the end of the day. M: That would be perfect. Thank you very much indeed. Text 7: Ｍ: Do you think we’ll have time to stop for lunch soon? W: Why? Are you hungry? M: Not quite, but almost. Don’t forget I didn’t have any breakfast. W: It was your own fault. You preferred staying in bed for about another thirty minutes to eating breakfast. M: It seemed like a good idea at that time. W: I won’t let you starve. I have to stop for gas in the next town anyway and you can eat then. M: Will that be long? W: Only about ten minutes. Text 8: W: I just read an interesting article. Did you know that people who spend less than ten minutes in a department store are more likely to buy something than those who spend half an hour there? M: I saw that article, too. But I think, if someone runs into a store for 10 minutes, it’s usually to get something that was already in mind. W: And someone who spends more time there may be just looking. M: Exactly. Haven’t you ever gone into a store, thinking that you’d buy something and then talked yourself out of it? W: Yes, I have. Especially when I thought I ought to get it for less somewhere else, or I really didn’t need it at all. M: Exactly, but if you run into something that you want to buy and have very little time, you pick it up, pay for it immediately and then leave. W: That’s true. May be we should learn a lesson from that. Take your time and you will spend less money. M: Yes, I think so, too. Text 9: W: you’re leaving school soon, aren’t you? M: Yes, my A-levels start next week, but I’m not bothered about the results, because when
I leave school I’m going to concentrate on my music career. I’m the leading singer in a band and I don’t need any qualifications to be a pop star. I see my future very clearly. I’m going to be incredibly famous and rich. W: So you’ve already got a contract then? M: Not yet. But the minute I’ve taken my last exam. I’m going to find a really good manager. W: So, do you intend to continue living at home? M: No way. I’m moving to London just as soon as I’ve left school. London’s where it all happens in the music industry. W: Do you think you’ll be able to live off your music right from the start? M: Well, I believe at first we might have to get part-time jobs for a few months and it’s going to be hard, but I bet you, by this time next year, we’ll have had a record in the charts. Text 10: W: Hello. Welcome to our class for beginning computer users. Typing skills are required for this course. In a moment you’ll begin typing the text I’ve placed on the stand next to each keyboard. First, however, I’d like you to look at the screen in front of you. There are no words on it yet, but it does contain two important objects, the end mark and the action point. You’ll be learning more about these later. Right now, please place your fingers on the keyboard and prepare to use it as if it were a typewriter. For example, to type capital letters, hold down the shift key. Don’t stop typing at the end of a line. When you type a word that is too long to fit at the end of the current line, the computer will automatically move the word to the beginning of the next line. If you make a mistake while typing the text, you can correct it by using the backspace key. Now please prepare to begin typing.

As middle school students, not only should we acquire rich knowledge, but also we should have good qualities. I think expressing our gratitude to people who have helped us is among the good qualities we must possess. Two years ago, my classmate Wang Wei ran into difficulty because his father had been diagnosed with lung cancer. His father’s illness added to his family’s trouble so that Wang Wei was in danger of dropping out of school. After learning about his difficult situation, our head teacher gave him timely help by allowing him to continue his schooling without any tuition. With the aid of our teacher, and classmates, Wang Wei has finished school. Just before this important exam he wrote us a letter expressing his sincere thanks for what we have done. We were deeply moved by his letter. Being grateful to people who helped and supported us is what we are supposed to keep in mind forever.
