老友记第一季词链儿(一)

  NEWS 3

  2013年6月大学英语四级考试已结束,本次考试为多题多卷,新浪教育[微博]频道第一时间收集整理不同版本试题,供考生参考,以下为真题听力原文完整版。

前段时间参加了Gwen老师的第一期口语课程,在她的引导下学习了一些美剧节选片段,积累了一些词链儿。也无意间知道了李志萍老师是如何看《老友记》和《摩登家庭》的。她不仅学习和标注了词汇、短语和表达,还深究了其中的文化知识。我想,我可能不会完全跟她一样,作为第一阶段,我只是想积累一些词链儿,然后进行一定的整理汇总。
目前我看了第一季的前13集,看每一集的时候我都会把好的表达都记下来。下面我会汇总几个情景里常用的句子或短语,这个笔记可能单纯地看起来并不会有太大的帮助。毕竟网上有太多什么日常口语几百几千句,里面也有很多很好的表达,但是没有融入到真实的场景里去是很难被记住,更别说将来自己说出来了。重要的还是不断的去看、听和积累,常见的那些话他们会反复的说的。

M: Hello everyone and welcome to EnglishPod! My name is Marco.

  The world‘s largest aircraft has taken to the skies for the first time。 The Air-Lander 10 spent nearly two hours in the air, having taken off from Cardington airfield in Bedfordshire。 During its flight, it reached 3000 feet and performed a series of gentle turns all over a safe area。 The aircraft is massive as long as a football field and as tall as six double decker buses and capable of flying for up to five days。 It was first developed for the U.S。 government as a long-range spy aircraft but was abandoned following budget cutbacks。 The aircraft cost 25 million pounds and can carry heavier loads than huge jet planes while also producing less noise and emitting less pollution。 The makers believe it’s the future of aircraft and one day we‘ll be using them to go places。 But there’s still a long way to go。 The air lander will need to have two hundred hours flying time before being allowed to fly by the Aviation Administration。 If it passes though we can hope we‘ll all get some extra leg room。

  Q: What doesthe man imply about Pam?

E: Road trips are great. You get to get in a car with your family and drive on a vacation.

  M: Are u sure u fancy going out tonight。 U‘re not very enthusiastic。

  M: Frankly, Mary is not what I'd called easy-going。

M: So, when your car is packed it means that…

  W: Perhaps u‘re right。 OK。 Let’s go see the dance。 But tomorrow, not tonight。

  W: I see. People in our neighborhood find it hard to believe she's my twin sister。

E: Everything you need is inside the car.

  M: Great。 I‘ll booked the tickets online

  M:你今晚想出去吗? W:是的,为什么不呢?我们已经很久没有出去了。 M:有些什么。那么有一部关于气候变化的影片。这对你听起来不错吗? W:不,不是。它并不真正吸引我。这是关于什么?只是气候变化? M:我认为这是关于气候变化如何影响日常生活。我不知道他们是如何使它娱乐。 W:那听起来很糟糕。这是一个重要的主题,我同意。但我没有心情压抑任何事情。还有什么? M:有一个西班牙舞蹈节。 W:哦,我喜欢跳舞。这听起来很有趣。 M:显然这绝对是辉煌的。让我们来看看它在论文中所说的内容,“安娜戈麦斯领导西班牙爱情故事的精彩制作。卡门“。 W:好的,那么几点了? 男:七点半。那么,这是不好的。我们没有足够的时间去那里。还有别的事吗? M:有一部喜剧专辑。 W:它在哪里。它在城市剧院。这是一个慈善喜剧之夜,有很多不同的行为。它看起来不错。当地报纸的评论家说这是他见过的最有趣的事情。它说这里罗杰怀特海是一个惊人的东道国一夜的外国表演。 W:恩。。。。。。我不喜欢他。他不是很有趣。 M:你确定你喜欢今晚出去玩。你不是很热心。 W:也许你是对的。好。我们去看舞吧。但明天,不是今晚。 M:很好。我会在网上预订门票

  Passage 1

  Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just heard。

M: Exactly, you have everything ready.

  Farmington, Utah, is a more pleasant community since a local girls' 4-H club improved Main Street. Six 4-H girls worked to clean the 72 foot curbside that was covered with weeds, rocks and trash. Each member volunteered to clean up and to dig in plot, five flats of flowers. They also took terms in watering, weeding and maintaining the plot. Participation in this project helped the girls developed a new attitude towards their parents of their own homes; they've learned how to work with tools, and improve their work habits. One mother said that before her daughter was involved in this project, she would not even pour a weed. The experience on Main Street stimulated self-improvement, and encouraged members to take pride in their home grounds and the total community. City officials cooperated with the 4-H members in planting trees, building cooking facilities, pick-me tables, swings and public rest rooms. The 4-H girls planted trees and took care of them during the early stages of growth. The total park project needed more plantings in the following years. Members of the 4-H club agreed to follow the project through to completion, because they receive satisfaction from the results of constructive work. The project is a growing one and is spread from the park to the school and the shopping center. Trees and flowers have all been planted in the shopping center, making the atmosphere pleasant。

E: You’re all prepared.

  Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just heard。

M: Perfect! Alright, now let’s take a look at our second phrase and it’s let’s get going.

  26. What do we learn about Main Street in Farmington?

E: Let’s get going.

  27. What do the 4-H club members do about the curbside?

M: Let’s get going.

  28. What have the 4-H girls learned from the project?

E: Let’s get going.

  29. Why do the 4-H girls agree to follow the park project through to complete。

M: Alright, so, when you say “Let’s get going” it just means…

  Question 30 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard。

E: Let’s start.

  Passage 2

M: Let’s start, let’s go.

  According to a survey on reading conducted in 2001 by the U.S. National Education Association (NEA), young Americans say reading is important, more important than computers and science. Over 50% of the 12 to 18 years old interviewed say they enjoy reading a lot. 79% find it stimulating and interesting. And 87% think it is relaxing. About 68% of those surveyed disagreed with the opinion that reading is boring or old-fashioned。

E: Yeah.

  Over half teenagers interviewed said they read more than ten books a year. The results also show that middle school students read more books than high schoolers. Over 66% of teens like to read fiction, such as novels and stories. Over 26% are interested in non-fiction, such history books.64% of students listed reading stories about people my own age. That's a favorite topic. Mysteries and detective stories came second on the list at 53%. Just under 50% said they were interested in reading about their own culture in tradition. Of the teenagers who participated in the survey, 49% said that libraries are where they get most of their books. However, many complain that their school libraries do not have enough up-to-date interesting books and magazines. Even though many teenagers in the US enjoy reading, they still have other interests. When asked which activity would be the most difficult to give up for a week, 48% said listening to music. TV would be difficult to give up for 25% of those surveyed。

M: Okay, but the interesting thing about this phrase is you can change it a little bit and it means something different.

  Question 30 to 32 are based on the passage you have just heard。

E: Aha, let’s listen to a couple of examples.

  30. What does the survey on teenager reading show?

Voice: Example one.

  31. What books are most popular among teenagers according to the survey?

A: I have the chicken, so, let’s get cooking.

  32. What activity do teenagers find the most difficult to give up for a week?

Voice: Example two.

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

B: This house is really scary. Let’s get out of here!

  Passage 3

Voice: Example three.

  Thank you for coming, everyone. Today’s presentation will show how we see the development of the motor car in the short to medium term, and that is why we have invited all of you here today. Let’s start with power. It’s clear that petrol-driven engines have no future. Already there are many alternative fuel vehicles on the market, powered by anything from solar power to natural gas. Some independent thinkers have even produced cars that run on vegetable oil. But as we all know, of all these alternative fuel vehicles, the most practical are electric vehicles. Sure, in the past electric vehicles have their problems, namely, a limited driving range, and very few recharging points, which limited their use. Now, however, recent developments in electric vehicle technology mean they can match conventional petrol engines in terms of performance and safety. Let’s not forget that electric vehicles are cleaner. Plus, importantly, the power source is rechargeable, so this does not involve using any valuable resources. Moving on to communications, very soon, cars will be linked to GPS satellites, so they’ll do all the driving for you. What controls remain for the users will be audio-based, so, for example, you’ll just have to say “a bit warmer”, and the air conditioning will adjust automatically. You’ll also be able to receive email, music and movies, all via an internet link. So just type in the destination you want, sit back, sleep, watch your movie, whatever。

C: I have another meeting in twenty minutes, so, let’s get down to business.

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

E: So, let’s get down to business, Marco.

  33. What is the presentation mainly about?

M: Let’s get down to business, let’s listen to the dialogue one more time, but this time…

  34. What used to restrict the use of electric vehicles?

E: It’ll be a little bit slower and you’ll understand much better.

  35. What does the speaker say about electric vehicles of today?

DIALOGUE, SECOND TIME (slow)

E: So, that was a little more clear this time, wasn’t it?

M: Yeah, you can definitely understand better about… what we’ve been talking about.

E: Yep.

M: Okay, so, now it’s time to look at “fluency builder”. Erica, why don’t you explain what fluency builder is?

E: In fluency builder we give you some great useful phrases to help you express your ideas clearly.

M: Okay, great, so, let’s look at fluency builder.

Voice: Fluency builder.

E: Alright, so, we all know how to ask the question “Are we ready to go?”

M: That’s right, you can say “Can we go now?”

E: Or you can say “Are we ready to go?”

M: Exactly, but there’s another way that we can say this and we heard it in our dialogue, so, let’s listen.

Phrase 1: So, are we all ready to go? So, are we all ready to go?

E: Wow! That sounds really good, it sounds a lot more fluent.

M: Fluent, exactly.

E: Yeah. Okay, so, another simple phrase that we all know how to say is “It is ready”.

M: It is prepared.

E: It is ready.

M: Right.

E: So, these examples are fine, they’re right.

M: Uhu. Yeah, they’re correct English, no problem.

E: But there’s another way to say this that we heard in the dialogue and it sounds a lot more fluent.

Phrase 1: Yep, it’s all set. Yep, it’s all set.

E: It’s all set, that sounds much better.

M: Yes, and we’re all set to listen to this dialogue for a third time and this time it’s gonna be at its normal speed.

DIALOGUE, THIRD TIME

M: So, Erica, you said you’ve been on a million road trips, what was that all about? Where have you been?

E: Okay, well, maybe not a million road trips.

M: Hehe.

E: But many road trips. Every summer I used to go on a road trip with my family and we would drive many many hours, probably eight hours in one day up to Northern Canada.

M: Oh, wow! Nice.

E: Yeah, and then we would go camping and we would sleep outside and we would have a campfire at night, it was great.

M: Oh, family road trip.

E: Yeah, but maybe eight hours in a car is a little too long.

M: Well, yeah. Well, I’ve been on a different kind of road trip with some, uh, buddies of mine, some friends. We would drive to Las Vegas.

E: Really?

M: Yeah, so, that’s really fun – a bunch of crazy guys in a car going to Las Vegas and then just having fun and talking about everything, so, that’s a much different experience than a family road trip.

E: Maybe that sounds a little bit more fun.

M: Hehe. Yeah, eight hours in a car is not really that boring with all your friends. Alright, folks, we’re out of time for today, but be sure to visit our website at englishpod.com and leave all your questions and comments.

E: Okay, well, thanks for listening and until next time… Good bye!

M: Bye!
