2011-2014 广东听说考试真题原文材料 【绝对完整并排版好,超级强大】


2011-2014 英语听说考试真题 Part A 部分 2011 年 【A】 The South Pacific Ocean is on the surface of it still a healthy ocean. We depend on it. Over 60% of the world’s fish catch comes from the Pacific. But

like all oceans, it has little or no protection, so it may not stay healthy much longer. For the South Pacific, this is a critical time. It’s changing in ways that. If left unchecked, could develop into a global crisis. Some of its resid ents have been through crisis before. And protecting the fish will ensure a healthy ocean for all the marine life of the Pacific. It will require international commitment and cooperation. 【B】Tortoises, as heavy as four grown men. In their huge bodies they can store enough fat to go for a year without eating or drinking anything. To survive here, it seems you need to be a monster. Or is it just that you need to be different? Their rich at, their giant size made tortoises perfect for the ship’s larder. In 200 years, over 200,000 were taken. On some islands tortoises were completely wiped out. But out of the tragedy came some good. As more people came to Galapagos, a clearer picture of the islands began to appear. Each got its own name. 【C】 The Road tells us stories of cities, stories of wars, all passed on through travelers’ tales. The hardest part of the Silk Road journey was crossing the vast expanse of desert, called ―The Sea of Death‖. The Mogao Cave is an intersection between the edge of the Silk Road and starting point of the ―Desert of Death‖. The numerous stories of the Silk Road tale were hidden in the desert. The desert sand wind has two different sides, and the desert does not leave any traces. However, uncovering the Silk Road’s stories is similar to counting the grains of sand in the desert. 【D】 The desert leaves not a trace of what has been. Stories of people who passed through the Silk Road have become legendary. Two thousand years ago, how did people know that on the far side of an endless desert lay a world different from theirs? To travel the Silk Road containing two thousand years of history is a journey of many faces with hardships and danger around every corner. Endless desert spreads before us. After passing through this desert, what kind of land will we discover? A special record reports and eighth century Silk Road journey. The Silk Road is a path for those seeking Buddhism. 【E】 Navigating and surviving in this vast, remote wilderness, had proved almost impossible for this experienced sailors. And at times, even the ultimate ocean travelers need help. Natural harbours may be safe heavens for sailors, but for the migratory whales, they can be death traps. One whale is still alive. Left like this, he will die within days. But he’s held fast. The only opinion left is to use nets. At last he’s free. But he’s not out of trouble yet. First, he must negotiate the rocky heads of the bay. His sensitive skin, never designed to touch rock, is badly lacerated. He is through and back into the safety of the endless blue. 【F】 We live on a active planet. The rock itself is alive. The history of this planet is written in its rocks. Over hundreds of millions of years, mountain ranges have risen up, entire continents have drifted apart. Is this how other worlds would be? Earth’s partner, the moon, could hardly be more different. Nothing has happened on this dusty world for billions of years. Its surface shows only the scars of countless impacts by asteroids. The story of the other planets must also be locked on their surfaces. But they are so far away that they are just dots of light in the sky. 2012 年 【A】Natural medicines, made from flowers, seeds, roots and leaves. The Chinese were the first to discover the power of plants, making medicine for 4000 years. Focus on prevention rather than cure. Popular today in the east and the west. Healthy for mind, body and soul. Past and present, tribal people always made the most of nature. Explorers and botanists made them available to the rest of the world. Western and traditional medicine unite, returning to more natural cures. Copy their chemicals or use them direct. When they fail, we go back to nature for the next magic cure. 【B】The absence or presence of water governs life on land. It determines where and how animals live. But falling rain is not always welcome. The power of water is immense. Once on land, it begins its journey back to the sea, carving its way through the earth. 65% of the human body is water. It is our absolute necessity. We cannot live without it. We need it for drinking, for bathing and to grow food. And we have gone to great lengths to get it to where we want it to be. Water, the giver of life, essential to all and forever sacred. 【C】Much of my work here is to show people the diversity of the wildlife and to explain its biology. It's important to get to know sharks. With gray sharks there is tension. They'll eat almost anything. You know, humans are much more dangerous to sharks than they are to us. When you spend time with sharks, you begin to understand them and learn to respect them. But you have to command their respect too. They're a vital link in the chain of life. Like wolves they weed out the sick and the injured.

【D】Why are we here? Where do we come from? These are the most enduring of questions and it's an essential part of human nature to want to find the answers. But, in reality, our story extends far further back in time. Our story starts with the beginning of the universe. It began 13.7 billion years ago. And today, it’s filled with over 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of billions of stars. In this series, I want to tell that story. We are part of the universe, so its story is our story. This film is about the stuff that makes us and where it all came from. 【E】The history of gold is the history of the world. Since earliest times gold has been adored and treasured by man. A symbol of enduring value, gold has been used as a currency for centuries. In 1847 one man found gold in the bed of a Californian river. And so began the Californian Gold Rush. Men came in their thousands and the city that we now know as San Francisco was born. Today most of the world’s gold is found, not in rivers, but deep within the earth. Gold, now even more precious to man than ever. 2013 年 【A】In the heart of London sits one of Britain’s most recognizable buildings. Yet its story is one of the least understood. But what is now the site of a splendid palace was once open countryside. As royal residences go, Buckingham Palace is something of a newcomer. The state rooms are less than 200 years old. Yet its history is much older and more dramatic than you might think. Its rooms are filled with objects that are clues to the character of kings and queens past. And the art and architecture combine to make a statement about Britain’s place in the world. 【B】In 1939, on the eve of the Second World War, Albert Einstein wrote a letter to the American President. The letter was about an application of Einstein’s famous equation, E equals MC squared and his fear that the Nazis could use it to build an atomic bo mb. E equals MC squared is the symbol of Einstein’s genius. It’s an equation that sums up one of the most powerful truths about the universe. It combines two ideas, which until Einstein came along, no one had ever dreamed could be connected in such a powerful way. The idea of mass, and the idea of energy. 【C】Isaac Newton has always been a hero of mine, and probably every physicist you’ll ever meet. He wasn’t an easy character. He arrived in Cambridge in 1661 after a difficult childhood. His father had died before he was born and his mother had abandoned him at the age of three. But the young Newton showed his genius at an early age. He wondered what light might be made of and wanted to know how vision worked, and he was prepared to try anything to find out. One night in his darkened laboratory, he decided to experiment on his own eye. 【D】The most ambitious map in history is taking shape before our eyes. And scientists are heading for the edge. It may be the strangest map you’ll ever see. And it’s bigger than you can believe. It’s a map of the entire universe. They’re even building pictures of the invisible. This is a map of everything we know. And it’s getting bigger every day. The universe is so big; we may never find the edge. Mapping the universe is a job for pioneers. Nick wants to put our entire galaxy on the map. He’s on a single-handed mission, to photograph the Milky Way. 【E】Illustrated books set out to provide a fuller reading experience. What a picture adds to a story, and what the words leave out, is key. But how exactly does that relationship work? Although there were illustrated books for adults, by far the majority were for children. One stands out above all others — Alice in Wonderland. Words and pictures created a handshake on the page far greater than the sum of the parts. And while the audience is now mostly young children, the combination of artist and writer is alive and well. The best illustrated books form an inseparable, timeless bond that endures long after our childhoods.

When Uncle John was 85 years old, most of his families and relatives were already dead. He lived by himself in a big house. The only person who often talked to him was his nephew Tom. Tom called several times a week just for few minutes to say hello and see if everything was OK. One morning Tom phoned Uncle John again. Again no answer. Two hours later he called the 3rd time. Still no answer, he got very anxious. So he called Uncle John’s next door neighbor. Tom told her that he was worried about Uncle John and asked her to see what was wrong. A while later, the neighbor phoned Tom. She said nervously, ―Tom, I’m sorry it took so long. Uncle John didn’t answer the door, so I used his spare key. I found him lying on the bathroom floor. I could not wake him up.‖ Tom called the doctor immediately, and then rushed to Uncle John’s house. When he got there, the doctor had already been there. The doctor said that he was just in time to save him.

Learning 5 words a day and learning to use them actively is far better than Learning 30 and forgetting them the next day. But people many have different learning styles. 2. 学生问:What do you mean by ―learning styles?‖ 电脑答:I mean different ways of learning. Some prefer to see models of the patterns they are expected to learn; others see the hearing instructions over reading them. All preferences are determined by factors so just character, culture and past experiences. 3. 学生问:How did you learn a foreign language? 电脑答:I learned while doing things.

Part C Locked In Last summer vacation, Tom took a part-time job in a company. His office was very small at the end of the second floor. One Friday evening, he finished his work and went out of his office. It’s already six o’clock. He looked around and found everybody had gone home. The building was very quiet, and the main lights were all out. He ran down to see whether he could find somebody, but it was too late. The doors all locked, and he was locked in the building. Tom went back to his office to phone the doorkeeper, but the phone did not work. He tried another one, and that phone did

not work, either. Tom realized the phones in the office had been locked for the weekend. He thought, ―I had to be here for the weekend‖. Suddenly he remembered that in the reception room there was a phone that was always on. So he rushed to the reception room. The door was locked, too. So he went into the room through the window, and phoned the doorkeeper. Half an hour later, the doorkeeper came, and Tome went home.

Part C Two Problems During his first year at university, one day, Tom arrived late at one of Professor Brown’s courses. On the blackboard were two math problems. He thought they were their homework and copied them down. A few days later, Tom went to Professor Brown’s office and apologized to him for taking so long to finish the homework. The problems seemed to be a little harder to do than usual. He asked Professor Brown if he still wanted his homework. He told Tom to throw it on the desk covered with a lot of papers. Tom feared that his homework would be there forever. One Sunday morning, about six weeks later, Tom had a heavy knock at the front door. It was Professor Brown. He rushed in with Tom’s homework in his hand. He said to Tom excitedly, ―I’ve just written an introduction for one of your papers. Read it so that we can get it published.‖ For a minute, Tom had no idea what he was talking about. Tom was later told that the two problems he copied down as his homework were two famous math problems that had never been worked out. For the first time, Tom realized that the two problems have something special in them.

At that time, he suffered from a rare disease and was sent to a hospital. During the first three days there, Tom watched a lot of TV cartoons and felt bored with them. Then he visited the Internet for fun. He found a website teaching people how to cook. Tom was interested in the pictures of the website and fell in love with cooking. He told others that cooking helped him keep his mind off everything. Having recovered, Tom went back home and tried his best to learn to cook by himself. He spent most of his spare time learning to cook. He would not give up trying a recipe until he got it right. Now after five years of practice, Tom is famous as a cook in his hometown and uses his cooking skills to raise money for other children suffering from the same rare disease.

He thought they were their homework and copied them down. A few days later, Tom went to Professor Brown’s office and apologized to him for taking so long to finish the homework.

He thought they were their homework and copied them down. A few days later, Tom went to Professor Brown’s office and apologized to him for taking so long to finish the homework.
