W: And would you like some things for the kitchen.
M: Yes, that’s right. I thought if I could find out things about kitchen things. They would be the best sorts of presents.
W: Well. I suppose the first thing you need is a cooker. Do you like an electron one or a gas one?
M: Hm. I think I probably prefer a gas one. But cookers are very expensive. Aren’t they? How much is this one?
W: It’s 175 pounds, including tax and delivery. It’s a very good one though.
M: But It’s a lot of money, isn’t it? What sorts of things could I ask people to buy? You know, cheaper.

M: It’s the offer from another bank?
W: It’s from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development in Washington.
M: (13) You mean the World Bank?
W: (13) That’s right. And it’s really very unexpected, I might say.

W: A rather important one, as a matter of fact, deputy director of the International Finance Corporation.
M: (14) Isn’t that the part of the Bank that makes loans to private companies in the developing countries?
W: (14) Yes, it is. It’s a job that certainly offers a chance for public service.
M: It seems to me that it’s a real honor for you.
W: Yes, it is. But I’ve been with this bank for so many years, ever since I graduated from college, in fact.
M: (15) But it’s an honor for the bank too, for the training and experience it’s given you.
W: Yes, I suppose I can think of it that way.

Passage 1
Good transportation is very important in winter. (16) If you have a car, make sure it is ready for the cold weather. Keep the gas tank as nearly full as you can. This will keep water out of the tank and will be a reserve in case you get into trouble. (17) If a storm traps you in your car, there are some steps you should take for your own safety. Do not tend to walk to find help. You may quickly lose your way in blowing and drifting snow. Your chances of being found are better if you stay in your car. Keep a downwind window open slightly for fresh air. Freezing rain can seal off your car and lock you inside. Run the engine and heater once in a while. Keep the same downwind window open while the engine is running. Make sure that snow has not blocked the exhaust pipe. Clap your hands and move your arms and legs from time to time. Do not stay in one position too long. But, do not move too much. (18) Exercise warms you up, but it also causes you to lose body heat. If more than one person is in the car, do not sleep at the same time. One person should always be awake. If you are alone, stay awake as long as you can. Turn on the inside light at night. This would make your car more visible to rescue crews. Don’t panic. Stay with your car.
Q16 What does the speaker say you should do in winter with your car?
Q17 What should you avoid doing if a storm traps you in the car?
Q18 Why is too much exercise undesirable when you are trapped in a car by a winter storm?
 
Passage 2
The topic of my talk today is gift-giving. Everybody likes to receive gifts, right? So you may think that gift-giving is a universal custom, but actually the rules of gift-giving vary quite a lot. And not knowing them can result in great embarrassment. In North America the rules are fairly simple. If you are invited to someone’s home for dinner, bring wine or flowers, or a small item from your country. (19) Among friends, family and business associates, we generally don’t give gifts on other occasions except on someone’s birthday and Christmas. The Japanese, on other hand, give gifts quite frequently, often to thank someone for their kindness. The tradition of gift-giving in Japan is very ancient. (20) There are many detailed rules for everything, from the color of the wrapping paper to the time of the gift presentation. And while Europeans don’t generally exchange business gifts, they do follow some formal customs when visiting homes, such as bringing flowers. The type and color of flowers, however, can carry special meaning. Today, we have seen some broad differences in gift-giving. I could go on with additional examples, but let’s not miss the main point here. (21) If we are not aware of and sensitive to cultural differences, the possibilities for miscommunication and conflict are enormous. Whether we learn about these differences by reading a book or by living abroad, our goal must be to respect differences among people in order to get along successfully with our global neighbors.
Q19 What does the speaker say about gift-giving of North Americans?
Q20 What do we learn about the Japanese concerning gift-giving?
Q21 What point does the speaker make at the end of the talk?
 
Passage 3
Claudette Rigo is a reporter for a French newspaper. Her assignment for the last five years has been Washington and American politics. She reports the current political news for her paper.
In addition, she writes the column that is published every week. (22) The column explains American politics to her readers in France. They often find it very difficult to understand the United States and Americans. Claudette lives in a small house in a fashionable section of Washington. She entertains a great deal. Her guests are usually government officials, diplomats, lawyers and other newspaper people. When she isn’t entertaining, she goes out to dinners and parties. In spite of her busy social life, Claudette works very hard. The parties are really work for her, because reporters frequently get news stories just by talking and listening to people. Claudette also has a small office in the building downtown. She goes there every morning to write up her stories and send them to Paris. (23) Her column is published every Monday, so she usually spends a large part of the weekend working on it at home. (24) Claudette spends a month in France every year, so that she won’t forget how to speak French. In spite of all of her experience in Washington, Claudette may be transferred. This is an election year in the United States when the people elect a new president. (25) When the election is over, Claudette thinks that her newspaper in Pairs may change her assignment.
Q22 What do we learn about the column Claudette writes?
Q23 What does Claudette usually do on weekends?
Q24 Why does Claudette spend a month in France every year?
Q25 What might happen to Claudette after this year’s American presidential election?
