However, in the conversation, the girl said the study group sort of thing doesnt help. Because people have their own way to study, expect thoes who doesnt know how to study. So she prefers to work alone.

the second point is that she thinks that if people in the same department, they will have class together, so they eventually will meet each other. So you dont really need to go to the study group.

2011.12.18ML

3.一个学生提议要把campus dining hall移到Outdoor去因为可以解决crowded的问题还可以享受lawn上的好天气

阅读:学校决定让新生在入学前提前做一些以后会做的作业, 主要是文学方面的.

  学校理由2: 学生预先阅读的一些东西可以成为他们入学后的共同话题,从而促进交流, 广交朋友

听力:男生反对理由:

  1): 大部分学生在假期里面时间比较少, 比如有工作(我理解是实习),所以无法完成这些阅读任务. 而一旦完不成, 开学就要struggle to catch up, 有时不得不rush, 结果就skip文章, 囫囵吞枣

2): 新生不会谈论文学, 他们更喜欢聊熟悉有趣的话题,such as some cool places to hang out.

2012.12.8ML/2010.9.24NA

Task3:

学校准备建一个art building。女生同意,因为可以容纳更多的学生上课,她去年选课就选不上,还有更大的screen看老师show pictures and sculptures可以更清晰。

  解析:

  阅读材料:学校要建(build)一个art building

  听力材料:女生态度,同意(agree, for…)

  理由一:可以容纳(accommodate)更多学生,女生举例去年就因为空间小选课没有选上。

  理由二:可以有更大的screen,这样看老师show pictures and sculptures可以更清晰(clearer)

按照以上主线将听力材料组织完全即可。

Task3:

【学校通知】:announcement学校计划要搞library expansion:把图书馆旁边的student center改造成new library,从而increase library space。好处1、有更多的空间摆放更多书shelves、存放更多媒体materials。好处2、摆放更多桌椅,让学生有更多地方自习。

【学生态度】:男生反对。理由1、学校应该用technology手段而非扩建图书馆以节省space,比如将资料扫描成electronic copy储存到电脑里可以节省空间。理由2、同学们爱去student center自习,不爱去图书馆。学校减小学生中心只能导致学生自习空间更少。

版本二

一个男生和女生讨论,女生的观点是这个proposal很挫,因为:1. If students answer calls, they have to whisper, but the other side听不清楚,so they have to raise their voices up, thus distracting other students; 2. 如果他们有重要的电话,可以check outside the library from time to time. (再次重复一遍这个意思)

3. Reading part: Nowadays university news station hire students from different majors to write articles for the newspaper, while in the future, the news station should only hire journalism students to write. In this way, they can keep students who are really interested in news, and can have more articles completed.

Listening part: Disagree

1) Students in other major may also be interested in writing news piece, so the university should also encourage those students to write for newspaper. Take him for example, he’s now majored in history but he wants to enter news industry in the future.

2) Extra articles don’t help. There’s no point to have too much articles coming in, because the station may not have the resource and time to deal with so many articles. The process of preparing an article is complicated, which includes the efforts of both the editors and writers. The writers write first and hand in to editors for reviewing, and then back to the writers to edit, and then back to the editors for final editing.

M: Ah, that is true, obviously. But...but they see only part of the truth.

W: What do you mean?'

M: Well, let me put it this way. The reason that many majors don't display their works in the gallery is that they take the chance of exhibiting in the gallery very seriously. So they always wait until everything is perfect before sending their works to the exhibition.

W: Aha, I didn't know it before. But how would you explain that only very few students come to the gallery even during the period of exhibition?

Professor evaluation

这个student写了个letter给校方希望能改变professor evaluationwhich is carried out at the end of every class,的方式。之前的evaluate之后都是教授自己看,不具有公开性;所以学生propose to put the evaluations online. 有两个好处:1. Professors will get more motivated to improve his teaching skills if he knows that the evaluations will go public. 2. 学生也可以通过这些评估做出more informed decision as to which course to take.

Listening:

男生女生对话,男生说,哎挺好的啊。女生说,我觉得一点都不好。教授肯定feel not happy about his course being publicly criticized,他不会take it seriously 而这些evaluation也不会influence他的Teaching skill。男生说,但至少学生们表达的自己的观点啊。女生说:这就是问题所在。The evaluations are usually the end of the last class举行,很多学生都in a hurry to leave,所以不会take the evaluation seriously ,也不会提一些specific的建议。

4. Reading part: Nectar Corridor

Nectar corridor is a distinctive type of migratory corridor comprised of a series of stepping stones placed in a dissimilar matrix. Some of the migratory species time their migration to match the flowering and fruiting of various food plants. The flowing plants serve as nectar trials to fuel their flights. In the process of moving from one plant to another, these species are not only feeding, they are also pollinating.

Listening part: A species called Rufous Hummingbird follows the nectar corridor. They migrate each fall to southern Mexico, feeding off flowering plants on their way. In the spring they again follow the nectar trail as they return to Northern California, Washington and the Rocky Mountains and well into southern Alaska. This small bird plays an important role in plant reproduction by moving pollen from plant to plant on its winter grounds, breeding grounds, and any area over which it migrates. From Alaska to Mexico and throughout the western US, the Rufous Hummingbird drinks nectar and pollinates flowers year-round   throughout the habitat that it visits annually.

How does the example in the listening part explain the concept of priority effects?

Reading:

Reactance: 人们都很重视自己的freedom。 因此当自己的行为被limited and自由受限by some rules and regulations时,人们尝试去逃脱这种限制。很多adults and children’s behavior are results of the urge to 重获 freedom. “Reactance” indicates people’s desire to reestablish freedom and break away from(具体的词组不是break away from,但意思一致) the control.

Listening:

两个例子可以验证reactance的现象:1. Imagine a child, who used to play very happily on the playground, having a lot of fun, 但是突然有一天his parents don’t allow him to play on that playground again。小孩会感到很upset,于是他会sneak to the playground and play despite his parents’ rule. 2. A town recently ban on a kind of soap because it’s harmful to the environment. 但是这个ban 并没有降低the soap’s ability to clean things.因此人们会感到很upset”why can’t I choose any type of soaps that I want?”因此人们会attempt to buy a large number of this kind of soaps, a lot more than they used to do, 尽管town会限制他们做这件事。

  The professor talks about how animals that doesn’t live underwater do to stay under the water. The first way is to reduce movement in order to save oxygen. For example, alligators hunt under water by staying very still, basically no movement. In doing so, it can cut down heart rate, therefore cut down the need for more oxygen. The second way is to minimize the time spent under water. For example, brown pelican dives down to catch fish in the water. It doesn’t go to deep, and it has air sacks that open when in the water. That will help the pelican to get back to the surface as fast as possible for oxygen.

In the lecture the professor talks about two cues to judge the qualities of products by consumer. The first clue is the intrinsic cue which means the customers judge the products qualities by their physical characteristic, such as color, texture, sizes. For example, food, customers will think it has good qualities if it has good taste. The opposite cue is the extrinsic cue; the customers don’t judge the product quality by physical characteristics. For example, juice, if the bottle of juice is a good looking glass bottle and has good label, consumers think it has good quality. So products are evaluated by external packs but not the taste of the juice itself.

首先,telecommute为公司带来了很多”overhead cut” ,即办公经费的开支。通过减少办公室面积和办公室的设备,公司节约了很多成本。比如说professor姐姐的公司,上一年要求25%的员工以telecommute的方式工作,结果到了年底节省了half million

其次,telecommute留住了以前必定要流失的人才。公司培养一个人才需要花很多的财力人力,而这些人才如果因为计划外原因流动出公司,会对公司造成极大的损失。Telecommute可以使这些员工即使流动到其他城市或国家也能参与工作,从而保证了工作效率并减少了人才方面带来的损失。Professor又举了她姐姐的例子,她姐姐本来要移到Texas去居住,因此不能继续参与原公司的工作,但公司提出可以让她以telecommute的方式继续工作,保障了公司的利益。

A beta test is a testing that gives the intended audience some samples to try the product out.

1) Getting feedback from the customers

The producer can get feedback from the customers who try the product out, so that they will know what aspect they didn’t do well. Take a camera for example, the camera company may give some professional photographers samples to test how well the new camera work. If after the testing the photographers report the flash doesn’t work well because it produces extra light, the company will know they need to work on the flash to make it more desirable.

2) Providing free advertisement

If the testing audience think the new product is satisfactory, they will have a positive evaluation about it and tell others how well the product is. If it’s not perfect at first and the company spends effort to fix it, they usually have a better evaluation. Take the camera. After the company fixes the flash, the photographers will think the camera is now very good, and they will tell other photographers about the camera, encouraging others to be willing to buy

terminfomercial。就是在电视上的长的商品广告,telephone number都有显示在屏幕上那种两个advantages1,有足够的时间介绍所有feature
