[00:30.24]Sara Smith is from a little town in Australia [00:36.07]She is visiting her friend He Gang in Hong Kong [00:42.16]They are on a shopping trip. [00:46.51]H: Well, here's the store I was telling you about [00:52.60]where you can buy really nice silk things to take back to Australia [00:59.98]You said your sister wanted some skirts. [01:04.51]S: I know just what I want to get [01:08.51]but I realize that I left my traveler's checks at your place [01:14.16]and I don't have any money with me. [01:18.01]H: That's OK. I've got my plastic! [01:23.41]S: You mean your credit card? [01:26.83]H: No, my bank card. [01:31.30]1) Where does the conversation take place? [01:37.09]2) What does Sara want to buy for her sister? [01:43.54]3) What is Sara's problem? [01:49.04]4) How can the problem be solved? [01:55.52]Exercise 2 [01:59.41]Directions: [02:02.83]Listen to the second part of the conversation [02:07.66]and fill in the blanks with the information you hear from the tape. [02:14.17]S: How can you use that in a store? Is it like a credit card? [02:20.11]H: No, not really. It's a card issued by my bank [02:26.88]It's the same card I use at the automatic teller machine at the bank. [02:34.01]S: I still don't understand. We're nowhere near your bank. [02:39.84]H: Let's go to the cashier and I'll show you how EPS works. [02:46.75]S: What does EPS mean? [02:51.00]H: Well, it stands for " Electronic Point of Sale". [02:57.23]S: OK. You just gave the cashier your bank card [03:03.20]and she swiped it through her machine. Now what happens? [03:10.22]H: Now I just have to punch in my PIN [03:15.48]on this little thing that looks like a calculator. [03:21.28]S: What's PIN? [03:24.73]H: A personal identification number. [03:29.27]S: So now the cost of my sister's skirts has been taken out of your bank accout. [03:37.62]H: That's right. [03:41.33]S: Don't you ever worry that someone might take all your money? [03:46.26]S: Well, they could only do that if they knew my PIN number [03:53.06]It's neat system because you don't have to carry around a lot of cash. [04:00.77]S: That's neat. [04:04.30]Exercise 3 [04:08.29]Directions: [04:11.89]Listen to the whole conversation again and then role-play the whole conversation. [04:19.49]Listen 2 [04:23.12]Exercise 1 [04:26.62]Directions: [04:30.14]Before you listen to the passage, [04:34.28]can you guess from the title what the passage might be about? [04:41.56]An Unusual Millionaire [04:45.55]Exercise 2 [04:49.19]Directions: [04:52.75]Listen to the passage and then fill in the table with what you hear from the tape. [05:00.64]An Unusual Millionaire [05:04.70]I know a man called John Smith who is a very unusual millionair [05:13.24]What makes him unusual is that he has no money [05:20.18]He says the average millionaire never uses money [05:26.34]and always gets other people to pay for taxis or drinks [05:33.00]This is because he is so used to thinking in millions [05:39.62]that small amounts of money are not worth thinking about. [05:45.89]But this does not mean he has no worries [05:51.58]On the contrary, the average millionaire worries constantly about his businesses [06:00.43]His great wealth [06:04.14]also makes it difficult for him to be happy and comfortable with other people [06:12.20]Are they friendly because they like him [06:16.67]Or do they pretend to like him because they want his money [06:23.18]John Smith says he feels very sorry for millionaires [06:29.45]who, instead of being masters of their wealth, are slaves of their millions [06:37.76]In one way, however, John Smith always behaves exactly like a millionair [06:46.22]I mean he never has any money and generally manages to persuade [06:54.40]someone else to pay for his drinks. [06:59.58]But unlike other very rich men, he gives back good value for money [07:08.11]He is full of jokes and fun.An evening spent with him is not cheap. [07:16.50]because he is usually very thirsty, but he always makes people happy [07:24.10]He does not give much thought for tomorrow,He is the happiest man I have even met [07:32.56]Whenever I meet him, he tells me [07:37.78]"In money I am not rich, but in peace of mind I am a millionaire [07:46.60]And then the world's richest, penniless man usually adds, with a smill [07:55.38]"Do you have time for another drink?" How can I refuse? [08:03.08]Exercise 3 [08:07.04]Directions: [08:10.25]Listen to the passage again, and then work in pairs to answer the following questions. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20130102/100541.html
