[by:www.tingvoa.com - VOA英语网] [00:00.00]喜欢VOA英语网,就把tingvoa.com复制到QQ个人资料中!Unit 12 [00:03.02]Time [00:05.65]Part Two [00:08.82]Listening-Centered Activities [00:13.07]Listening I [00:16.38]Exercise 1 [00:19.87]Directions: [00:23.22]Listen to the poem twice and fill in the blanks. [00:29.02]Around the corner I have a friend.In this great city that has no end, [00:36.04]Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,And before know it,a year is gone [00:44.46]And I never see my old friend's face,For life is a swift and terrible race, [00:52.88]He knows I like him just as well as,in the days when I rang his bell, [01:00.26]And he rand mine.It's true that we were younger then, [01:06.38]And now we are busy,tired men,Tired of playing a foolish game, [01:14.27]Tired of trying to make a name."Tomorrow",I say,"I will call on Jim" [01:22.87]"Just to show that I'm thinking of him."But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, [01:31.62]And distance between us grows and grows.Around the corner!--Yet miles away, [01:41.27]"Here's a telegram sir--""Jim died today." [01:47.24]And that's what we get and deserve in the end.Around the corner, a vanished friend. [01:56.86]If you love someone, tell them.Remember always to say what you mean. [02:04.85]Never be afraid to express yourself. [02:09.96]Take this opportunity to tell someone what they mean to you. [02:17.09]Seize the day and have no regrets.Most importantly, stay close [02:26.30]To your friends and family,for they have helped make you [02:32.46]The person that you are today and are what it's all about anyway. [02:40.24]Pass this along to your friends.Let it make a difference in your day and theirs. [02:49.49]The difference between expressing love, [02:54.78]And having regrets which may stay around forever. [03:01.69]Listening II [03:05.40]Exercise 1 [03:08.89]Directions: [03:12.28]Listen to the passage and answer the following questions. [03:18.22]One day an expert on the subject of time management [03:24.55]was speaking to a group of business students and [03:30.53]to stress a point, used an illustration I'm sure those students will never forget [03:38.23]After I share it with you, you'll never forget it either. [03:44.21]As this man stood in front of the group of high-powered overachievers, [03:50.54]he said, "Okay, time for a quiz [03:56.12]Then he pulled out a large, wide-mouthed jar and set it on a table in front of him [04:04.94]Then he produced about a dozen first-sized rocks and carefully placed them, [04:12.43]one at a time, into the jar. [04:16.86]When the jar was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, [04:24.28]"Is this jar full?" [04:28.52]Everyone in the class said, "Yes." [04:33.20]Then he said, "Really?" [04:37.49]He reached under the table and pulled out a bag of little stones [04:44.51]Then he dumped some of them in and shook the jar causing the little [04:51.53]stones to work themselves sown into the spaces between the big rocks. [04:58.26]Then he smiled and asked the group once more [05:03.34]"Is the jar full?" by this time the class was onto him [05:11.58]"Probably not," one of them answere "Good!" he replied [05:19.18]And he reached under the table and brought out a bag of sand [05:25.30]He started dumping the sand in [05:30.48]and it went into all the spaces left between the rocks and the little stones [05:37.03]Once more he asked the question, "Is this jar full?" No!" the class shouted [05:44.95]Once again he said:"Good [05:48.66]Then he grabbed a bottle of water [05:53.02]and began go pour it in until the jar was filled to the top [05:58.74]Then he looked up at the class and asked, "What is the point of this illustration?" [06:06.73]One eager beaver raised his hand and said [06:11.84]"The point is, no matter how full your schedule is [06:17.82]if you try really hard, you can always fit some more things into it!" [06:24.88]"No," the speaker replied, "that's not the poin [06:31.03]The truth this illustration teaches us 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20121224/99510.html
