问答题 Practice 1 Directions: Read five students’ talks about traveling around Europe using an Inter-Rail ticket. The ticket allows people under the age of twenty-six to travel wherever they want within Europe for one month. For questions 1 to 5, match the name of each student (1 to 5) to one of the statements (A to G) given below. Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET. Patrlcia: I went by Inter-Rail this summer with a group of friends from university. I think it worked very well, although a few of them said they’d never do it again--I guess it wasn’t quite like they thought it was going to be--not as comfortable probably. We usually slept in hostels or on the train so we were completely exhausted but I think we had a great time. Next year 1’11 see if I can perhaps visit fewer places and not get so worn out. Davis: I traveled about 6,000 kilometers in four weeks with a couple of friends from college. We spent weeks planning out the route and all the places we were intending to go to. Would I do it again? Well, I’d have to think carefully about that but, on the whole the trip was good for me as I was the official translator, which was great as I’m normally a bit shy of talking to people I don’t know. On the last night of the holiday they treated me to a really expensive meal for helping them out. It was terrific! Jenise: Well, I guess I had a good time now” when I look back on it, and I saw eight countries in four weeks. Everything went well but I think that from now on I’ll probably choose to do something else. I want to meet local people rather than just people who work for the train service! I did get to know quite a few other English and American students and they were great but it didn’t do much for my French and German. Nigel: I think it’s definitely the best way of getting around Europe even though you have to spend money on the Inter-Rail ticket before you leave. I have a friend who hitch-hikes and he says that’s the only way to travel because it’s free and you see more interesting places. But I knew I could jump on a train wherever I wanted in the morning, while he would still be standing in the rain hoping for a lift. So all in all I think I got the better deal, especially as I could take the night train and save on hotel bills. Hawk: I’ve done it quite a few times now and I’m used to the kind of problems that arise-like having to sleep in a park because the train arrived too late for me to get a hostel bed, and trying to keep to a tight budget. The mistake people often make is to just get off at the tourist spots. Try getting off the train at the little villages, like I do. They’re usually fascinating and the people are friendlier, too. Even if they don’t understand your miserable attempt at their language they still smile and nod. Now match each of the students (1 to 5) to the appropriate statement. Note: there are two extra statements. Statements
问答题 Practice 1 Directions: Read the texts from a newspaper article in which five people talk about where they played when they were children. For questions 1 to 5, match the name of each people (1 to 5) to one of the statements (A to G) given below. Mark your answers on ANSWER SHEET 1. Peter: My favorite childhood play area was the back garden. Back in the days when I was growing up on a large housing estate, the ‘goals’ would be a pair of garage doors or two jackets laid out in the garden. I would spend hours kicking a ball about with my dad, learning how to control, dribble or kick it. Simon： The playground was quite small The floor was covered with flat bricks and there were many that were cracked or broken or missing, and a few weeds struggled through. It was totally enclosed on one side by the school and on the other by high brick walls. It was more like a prison yard--on top of the walls was a layer of concrete into which pieces of broken glass had been stuck. After school was finished my friends and I would climb a lamppost outside the school and sit on top of the wall, slowly breaking off the bits of glass. Alan: I come from an area of terraced houses, pavements and streets. There were no gardens. My first school was Prince’s Street Primary and the room in which I received my first lessons had large, folding glass doors that opened onto a small playground that had grass, bushes and flowers. My amazement at seeing these items, which are normal to most of the world, has stayed with me all my life. Nick： I was strictly forbidden from the obvious playground--a long, overgrown ditch running through waste ground, mainly built to take away the rain. It was irresistible to us local schoolchildren. Its charm, compared with the surrounding tennis courts, football pitches and farmland, was purely because it was out of bounds. That area was truly where I grew up, more than in the rest of the little town’s correct and neat suburbia, where my house was. Julle: Unitl I was twelve I was brought up on airforce camps and each camp had a small playground in the middle of the houses. It was always a great meeting place and I remember sitting with my friends on the swings many evenings until dark. You would often go out and swing for hours until someone else came out. I always liked swinging. Now match each of the people (1 to 5) to the appropriate statement. Note: there are two extra statements. Statements
