2018年12月英语四级听力真题原文+答案(完整版)

家长体验分享
现在英语培训机构有很多的,选择一家适合自己或孩子的英语培训机构,还是有点困难,但是知名的也不多abc360兰迪英语沪江英语vipkid、华尔街英语等,这些机构的实力都差不多,区别无非是价格、师资、教学方法不同,大家都可以做个参考,然后选择适合自己的。不过深受家长及社会媒体好评的还是abc360Abc360专注于英语外教一对一教学模式,超高的性价比及科学的教学体系和学习体系很吸引人,尤其是其教材的选择,比任何一家都要适合中国小孩。适合长期学习,对提高英语整体水平会有很大的帮助,并且还可以免费在线试听https://www.abc360.com上完课外教非常有耐心的给你点评,发给你,还能够录制下来方便复习,而且我发现外教发音特别纯正,非常值得推荐那么这么多在线英语培训机构中为何偏偏推荐ABC360伯英瑞英语呢?原因有以下几点:
  1. 1.在线英语培训哪家好:51talkvipkidtutorabcabc360、一线口语、洛基英语,51talk的规模比较的大,和ABC360一样,课程丰富全面,从性价比来说,ABC36051talk更有优势,同样是一对一在线教学、外教来自欧美和菲律宾,但是ABC360一节课最低才16块钱,51talk的要贵好几倍。
  2. 2.其他的像tutorabc知名度也很高,但是他们在价格上面走高端路线,欧美课程一节课都要200左右,所以性价比不高。至于一线口语和洛基属于电话英语的范畴,一般很少人选择了吧,当然,有兴趣的也可以自己去试下。
  3. 3.其他一些英语培训机构,诸如英孚英语、韦博英语...本身是做线下的,但也开设了一些在线课程,虽然名气还可以,但是他们的在线还处于摸索阶段。比如英孚英语因为有胡歌代言,知名度很高,但他们一年的费用都要好几万,没有规定的收费标准!
  4. 4.假如迫切需要在线英语培训,机构的选择很需要技巧,选择什么样的服务、什么样才省钱、哪种培训最实用的等等都是要考虑的,还有就是每家机构都有试听课,自己可以抓住这些机会听一下,有个自己的实际感受,做选择也清晰很多。在这里把价值188元的abc360英语课程分享给大家免费试听https://www.abc360.com
结语:以上就是我这么多年摸索总结出来的内容,希望能够帮助到正在找在线英语培训的朋友们!

四级听力真题原文

Section A

Directions: In this section, you will hear three news reports. At the end of each news report, you will hear two or three questions. Both the news report and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C), and D).

News 1

A device that weighs less than one kilogram is part of a mission that will allow scientists to deliver fourth generation or 4G mobile coverage to the moon in 2019. If successful, the tiny device will provide the moon with its first ever mobile phone network. The lunar network will support high definition streaming of video and data between the moon and earth. The network is part of a mission to the moon. This is a project with the goal of landing the first privately paid for mission to the moon. The 4G mission is set to launch from Cape Canaveral in the United States on a space X Falcon 9 rocket in 2019. Mission to the moon intends to establish and test the first elements of a communications network on the moon. The scientists working on the project opted to build a 4G rather than a fifth generation or 5G network. This is because fifth generation networks are still in testing and trial phases. This means that a 5G network may not yet be stable enough to work on the moon’s surface.

Question 1: What are scientists planning to do?

Question 2: Why did scientists choose to set up a 4G network in their mission?

News 2

It’s responded to a fire Wednesday night at an abandoned mall in Heywood. The fire was reported at 9:26 pm at an old shopping center on Michigan Avenue near St. Mary’s Church. Six fire engines, two trucks and two chiefs responded to the scene. Crews had the fire under control in about 45 minutes and managed to contain the fire to its point of origin. There were some people inside the building when the fire broke out but there were no reports of any injuries. Fire investigators have responded to the scene but have not yet determined the cause of the fire. Firefighters will remain on the scene until later this morning to ensure that the fire doesn’t start up again. The shopping mall had not been in use since 2002. In 2014 City Hall developed a plan to knock down the building and replace it with affordable housing. However the plan was dropped due to lack of funds.

News 3

Potato chips in Japan are being sold for 6X their normal price. This is after the country’s main manufacturer stopped sales due to a potato shortage. Storms and floods and its main potato growing region last year caused the worst harvest and more than 3 decades. Local media reports suggest Calbee and its main rival Koike-ya are halting almost 50 products.

“We don’t know when we’ll be able to restart”, a company spokesman said. Snack lovers are panic buying and many supermarket shelves are bare. Japanese laws limit the amount of imported potatoes that can be used in Japanese made products. Japan says fear of disease is its main reason to block fresh imports. It still only allows potatoes from selected US states. This is only at certain times and on condition that they are processed at factories based near Japanese ports.

But global warming has raised the possibility that domestic produce could be seriously affected by rare weather events more often.

Question 5: What problem is Japan facing?

Question 6: Why does Japan limit the import of potatoes?

Question 7: What might affect Japanese domestic produce?

【四级听力参考答案】

Questions 5 and 7 are based on the news report you have just heard.

5.【A】

A) Shrinking potato farming.

B) Heavy reliance on import.

C) Widespread plant disease.

D) Insufficient potato supply.

6.【C】

A) It intends to keep its traditional diet.

B) It wants to expand its own farming.

C) It is afraid of the spread of disease.

D) It is worried about unfair competition.

7.【A】

A) Global warming.

B) Ever-rising prices.

C) Government regulation.

D) Diminishing investment.

四级听力真题原文

Directions: In this section, you will hear two long conversations. At the end of each conversation, you will hear four questions. Both the conversation and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C), and D). Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 1 with a single line through the centre.

Conversation 1

M: Mr. Brown’s lectures are so boring.

W: Yes, he is not a very exciting speaker. But the subject is interesting.

M: During every one of his lectures, I try to listen I really try. But after about 10 minutes my mind begins to wander and I lose concentration. But I see that you seem to be OK. How do you stay focused through the entire hour?

W: Well, what I do is keep my pen moving.

M: What do you mean?

W: It’s a method of active concentration I read about. One of the most effective ways to concentrate is to write things down. But it has to be done by hand, not typing on a keyboard. You see writing by hand forces you to actually engage with what you’re learning in a more physical way.

M: Do you review your notes afterwards then?

W: Sometimes but that’s not important. My notes may or may not be useful but the point is that by writing down what Mr. Brand says I can follow his line of thinking more easily. In fact, sometimes I draw a little too.

M: You draw in class and that helps me pay attention?

W: Yes, honestly it works for me. I just draw little lines and nonsense really. It was also in that article I read. It can keep the mind active, prevent getting bored and help to concentrate. Again the point is to listen hard while keeping the pen moving. If I’m at home and I need to study what I do is read out loud. It has a similar effect to writing by hand. It helps memorize information in a physical way.

Question 8: What does the man think of Mr. Brown’s lectures?

Question 9: What does the woman do during Mr. Brown’s lectures?

Question 10: Why does the woman draw in class?

Question 11: What does the woman say about reading out loud?

【四级听力参考答案】

Conversation 2

M: And where is this?

F: These photos are from the Taj Mahal in India. We went there about ten years ago for our honeymoon.

M: Was it romantic.

F: Yeah. The Taj Mahal was a very romantic place. The guide told us there is a famous love story behind this building that all Indians learn in school. I think it was during the 1600 and the princess at that time died while giving birth to her 14th child. The Emperor loved the princess so much and was so sad when she died that he ordered the palace to be built in her honor.

M: Wow! That sounds very romantic. It looks amazing.

F: Yes it’s gorgeous. It’s also larger in real life than it looks in the photos. The building is very tall and there are gardens in a wall around it all. It’s all built in this white stone and some walls of the building are decorated with jewels.

M: It must have been very crowded when you were there.

F: Yes it’s a very famous tourist destination. So there are thousands of visitors every day.

M: Was the rest of India crowded?

F: Yes, very crowded in many cities. It was sometimes so crowded that it was difficult to walk along the streets especially through busy markets. And there are so many cars. Traffic was terrible but the people were friendly. The culture is amazing and we had a great time.

M: What about the food?

F: the Indian food is great. There are lots of different dishes to try and every region has its own special food.

Question 12: For what purpose did the woman go to India?

Question 13: Why was the Taj Mahal built?

Question 14: What does the woman say about the Taj Mahal?

Passage 1

A Pew Research Center survey of more than 1000 Americans conducted in April 2016 finds that Americans continue to express largely positive views about the current state of their local public libraries. For instance around three quarters say that public libraries provide them with the resources they need and 66 percent say the closing of their local public library would have a major impact on their community. Although notably just 33 percent say this would have a major impact on them personally or on their family. A majority of Americans feel libraries are doing a good job of providing a safe place for people to hang out or spend time as well as opening up educational opportunities for people of all ages and roughly half think their libraries contribute a lot to their communities in terms of helping spark creativity among young people and providing a trusted place for people to learn about new technologies. As in past Pew Research Center surveys of library use the April 2016 survey also measured Americans usage of and engagement with libraries. Overall, 53 percent of Americans ages 16 and older have had some interaction with the puppet library in the past year either through an in person visit or using a library Web site some 48 percent of adults specifically visited a library in the past 12 months. A modest increase from the 44 percent who said that in late 2015.

Passage 2

A Savannah cat is a crossbreed between a domestic cat and a medium-sized wild African cat called the Serval. The unusual cross became popular among breeders at the end of the 1990s. And in 2001, the International Cat Association accepted it as a new registered breed. The savannahs are tall and slim and can weigh up to nine point one kilograms, making them one of the largest breeds of cats that people can own. They have a spotted code similar to that of many types of wild cats and their ears are very large. They are also commonly compared to dogs in their loyalty and can be trained to walk on a lead and to fetch, and often noted characteristic of the Savannah is its jumping ability. They are known to jump on top of doors and high cabinets. Some can leap about 2.5 metres high from a standing position. Cats are typically known for being very inquisitive and so are the Savannahs. They often learn how to open doors and cupboards. Many Savannah cats do not fear water and will play with or even dive into water. Some owners even shower with their Savannah Cats, presenting a water bowl to Savannah may also prove a challenge, as some will promptly begin to bat all the water out of the bowl until it is empty using their front paws.

Passage 3

When children start school for the very 1st time parents often feel a sense of excitement coupled with a touch of sadness at the end of an era. This is the start of a new adventure for children playing and interacting with new friends sharing, taking turns and settling into a new routine.

But of course, this is not the start of your child’s education which in fact began at birth. Back then, you would have been your child’s most influential teachers. During this time at home, your child would have learnt more than at any other period in their life. During your child’s first year in school much time will be spent in learning to read and they need to know that this is fun and worthwhile. Your child will naturally copy you so it is important that you are seen reading and enjoying books newspapers and magazines rather than just absorbed in screens. Ultimately an excellent education should be a close partnership between parents and teachers. A child’s year splits fairly neatly into thirds: a 3rd at school, a 3rd asleep and a third awake at home or on holiday.

Irrespective of the quality of a school a child‘s home life is of key importance. It is the determining factor of their academic success. Your child may have started on a new journey but your work is far from finished.

Question 22: How do parents feel when their children start going to school?

Question 23: What does the passage say about children’s education?

Question 24: What should parents do for the success of their children’s education?

Question 25: What does the passage say is the key factor of loinbo’s academic success?

【四级听力参考答案】

Questions 22 to 25 are based on the passage you have just heard.

22.【D】

A) Contented and relieved.

B) Anxious and depressed.

C) Proud but a bit nervous.

D) Excited but somewhat sad.

23.【A】

A) It starts the moment they are born.

B) It depends on their parents for success.

C) It is gaining increasing public attention.

D) It is becoming parents’ biggest concern.

24.【D】

A) Choose the right school for them.

B) Help them to learn by themselves.

C) Read books and magazines to them.

D) Set a good example for them to follow.

25.【B】

A) Their intelligence.
