[00:33.80]Although twins have always been a source of curiosity [00:39.60]they are not so uncommon statistically, since they occur once in every 86 births. [00:47.30]About one third of all twins are identical, or single-egg twin [00:54.50]Identical twins have the same genes and, hence [01:00.48]the same sex, hair, eyes, blood type, and bone and tooth structure [01:08.76]Some identical twins are mirror images of each other [01:14.41]For example, one may be left-handed, the other right-handed. [01:21.40]some identical twins may develop their own private language [01:27.44]Identical twins have an especially keen intuition [01:33.31]and they often seem to think and dress alike even when away from each other [01:41.16]In fact, even when they are separated at birth and raised apart, [01:47.93]They may pursue the same careers, have the same interests, [01:53.44]or die within days of each other. [01:58.48]fraternal twins inherit a separate set of genes [02:03.23]and are not necessarily of the same sex. [02:08.66]Question. [02:12.16]1) What is the statistical probability of twins being born? [02:20.33]2) How many different kinds of twins does the speaker mention? What are they? [02:29.29]3) What are the major differences between the two kinds of twins? [02:37.14]Exercise 2 [02:40.16]Directions: [02:44.48]Listen to the passage again and fill in the blanks with the information [02:51.14]about identical twins. [02:55.50]Listening II [02:58.81]Exercise 1 [03:02.38]Directions: [03:06.01]Listen to the passage and decide whether the following statements are true or false [03:13.50]Write "T" for true and "F" for false. [03:20.16]When Robert Jones, 19, went to college this fall, [03:26.24]They told him he looked just like a former student, Edward Gallant [03:33.05]and a friend of Gallant's discovered they had the same birth date [03:40.54]Both Robert and Edward were adopte [03:45.76]When they talked with each other, [03:49.50]they discovered that they were identical twins separated shortly after birth [03:57.71]In fact, they were wrong: they were triplets [04:03.68]After newspapers published their pictures, [04:08.51]Edward's mother got a call from David Kellman [04:14.12]"You're not going to believe this," he said, "but I believe I'm the third." [04:21.25]He was: as "Baby A", "Baby B" and "Baby C [04:29.32]Robert,Edward and David had been born to the same mother on July 12th,1976 [04:38.42]They were adopted by three different couples, [04:43.50]none of whom was told their new son had brothers [04:49.55]The reunion of the three boys after 19 years [04:54.84]was a big surprise for everyone in all the families. [05:00.53]Relatives say their resemblance extends well beyond their look [05:07.76]All three are extroverts who have similar gestures [05:13.85]They talk in the same way, they have the same laugh [05:19.36]they hold their cigarettes in the same way, [05:24.14]and all three smoke the same brand of cigarettes [05:29.65]1)Robert jones and Edward Gallant thought they were actually twin brothers. [05:38.11]2) David Kellman was one of the triplets. [05:44.09]3) David learnt about his brothers on TV. [05:50.06]4)The triplets were born on June the 20th, 1961. [05:58.31]5) Everybody in the families was surprised by the reunion of the triplets. [06:06.48]Exercise 2 [06:09.76]Directions: 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20121228/99930.html
