[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 2 Psychology in Our Daily Life [00:05.62]Part Two Listening-Centered Activities [00:09.79]Listening 1 [00:11.66]Exercise 1 [00:13.39]Directions: Listen to the story and decide whether the following statements are true or false. Writer "T" for true and "F" for false. [00:28.22]A potato farmer was sent to prison just at the time when he should have been digging the ground for planting the new crop of potatoes. [00:41.47]He knew that his wife would not be strong enough to do the digging by herself, [00:48.67]but that she could manage to do the planting; [00:52.67]and he also knew that he did not have any friends or neighbors who would be willing to do the digging for him. [01:02.60]So he wrote a letter to his wife which said, [01:07.18]" Please do not dig the potato field. I hid the money and the gun there." [01:15.85]Ten days later he got a letter from his wife. It said, [01:23.05]" I think somebody is reading your letters before they go out of the prison. [01:29.60]Some policemen arrived here two days ago and dug up the whole potato field. [01:37.16]What shall I do now?" [01:39.47]The prisoner wrote back at once, [01:42.49]" Plant the potatoes, of course." [01:46.13]Exercise 2 [01:45.13]Directions: Listen to the story again and note down what the husband said in his first letter and the wife's reply. [01:58.23]Then work in groups to complete the two letters. Read them to the class. [02:05.61]A potato farmer was sent to prison just at the time when he should have been digging the ground for planting the new crop of potatoes. [02:19.22]He knew that his wife would not be strong enough to do the digging by herself, [02:26.35]but that she could manage to do the planting; [02:30.60]and he also knew that he did not have any friends or neighbors who would be willing to do the digging for him. [02:40.03]So he wrote a letter to his wife which said, [02:44.53]" Please do not dig the potato field. I hid the money and the gun there." [02:52.99]Ten days later he got a letter from his wife. It said, [03:00.26]" I think somebody is reading your letters before they go out of the prison. [03:07.10]Some policemen arrived here two days ago and dug up the whole potato field. [03:14.91]What shall I do now?" [03:17.54]The prisoner wrote back at once, [03:20.96]" Plant the potatoes, of course." [03:24.81]Listening 2 [03:27.01]Exercise 1 [03:29.06]Directions: Listen to the passage and fill in the table with the information you get from the tape. [03:37.52]The manager of a large office building received many complaints about the lift service in the building. [03:46.23]He hired a group of engineers to study the situation. [03:50.48]They suggested two solutions: [03:53.79]1. adding more lifts of the same type; [03:58.98]2. replacing the lifts with faster ones. [04:03.66]The manager decided that both suggestions were too expensive. [04:08.88]So he asked a psychologist to study the problem. [04:13.34]The psychologist noticed that many people felt angry and impatient because they thought they had to wait too long for the lift. [04:24.18]However, [04:25.47]the psychologist found that they only had to wait a relatively short time. [04:31.59]It occurred to him that the reason they felt angry and impatient was that they had nothing to do while they were waiting for the lifts. [04:42.82]He suggested a simple, [04:45.20]inexpensive solution to the manager. [04:48.55]This was adopted and complaints stopped immediately. [04:54.06]The solution was to place a large mirror next to the lifts. [05:00.68]Exercise 2 [05:02.66]Directions: Listen to the passage again and then discuss in groups to find out: [05:11.70]1)the reasons why complaints stopped immediately after the solution was adopted; [05:19.83]2)other possible solutions to the problem. [05:24.66]The manager of a large office building received many complaints about the lift service in the building. [05:33.30]He hired a group of engineers to study the situation.

[06:11.20]However, [06:12.46]the psychologist found that they only had to wait a relatively short time. [06:18.73]It occurred to him that the reason they felt angry and impatient was that they had nothing to do while they were waiting for the lifts. [06:29.35]He suggested a simple, [06:31.76]inexpensive solution to the manager. [06:35.18]This was adopted and complaints stoped immediately. [06:40.76]The solution was to place a large mirror next to the lifts. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20121230/100201.html
