2012年春季基础口译口试部分原文

来源:上外培训网   发布时间:2015-05-15   作者:

   本次考试的短对话部分同往年一样,有一半的题目来源于听力教程原题,上外口译培训上课时会反复提醒学生复习时以书本为主,书上的题目做2-3遍。另外,有两道题中出现谚语,说明平时对英语中谚语,俗语的积累也很重要。

  Question11:

  A: In the final exams, my math got 90, physics 92, Chinese 68, English 75.

  B: And to make matters worse, you only got 55 for history, very uneven work, indeed.

  Question: What was the girl’s mark for Chinese?

  解析:听力教程unit1中short conversations第二十题。本题考点在于用各种数字迷惑考生,再询问其中一个,务必边听边做好笔记,否则很容易搞混。

  Question12:

  A: Sir, I bought this DVD player here and there’s something wrong with it. Could you repair it for free? Here’s my receipt.

  B: If it is under warrantee, we can. Oh, sorry, it has run out.

  Question: What does the man mean?

  解析:听力教程unit2中short conversations第十二题。Repair for free免费修理,be under warrantee在保修期之内,run out (of warrantee)超过了保修期,所以不可能免费帮忙修理了。这题Joyce上课重点解答过哦!

  Question 13:

  A: Would you like me to bring you some bread from the store?

  B: Thanks, but I haven’t finished this loaf yet.

  Question: What does the woman mean?

  解析:听力教程unit3中short conversations第十四题。loaf是表示面包的量词,a loaf of bread表示“一条面包”,我还没有吃完这条,说明不需要你帮忙买面包嘛!

  Question 14:

  A: You play the violin very well.

  B: Thank you. I’m just an ordinary amateur, and I play it for pleasure.

  Question: what are they talking about?

  解析:听力教程unit6中short conversations第十三题。Joyce上课时曾就“amateur”这个单词重点讲解过,表示“业余爱好者”,所以这两个人当然是在谈论hobby咯!

  Question 15:

  A: Tim seemed to think Mariah Carey’s concert last night was disappointing.

  B: That’s his opinion. Most others think differently.

  Question: what does the woman mean?

  解析:听力教程unit7中short conversations第二十题。Tim个人认为disappointing(令人失望的),但是其他人think differently还有不同看法,说明别人意见与他不同,只有他一个人这么想而已。

  Question 16:

  A: I want to change the shoes to size 37. They aren’t large for me.

  B: I’m afraid I can’t. The key is broken.

  Question: where does the conversation take place?

  解析:换鞋子的尺码,对话很显然发生在鞋店咯!

  Question17:

  A: is the movie as good as the advertisement says?

  B: we are never told the truth.

  Question: what can we learn from the conversation?

  解析:we are never told the truth指的是the advertisement never tells us the truth广告从不告诉我们实话,说明完全没有广告中描述的那么好。

  Question 18:

  A: Ted’s complaining to me that his wife is always self-important.

  B: actually, it is like the pot calls the cattle black.

  Question: what does the man mean?

  解析:本题考点在于一句谚语:the pot calls the cattle black,表示“五十步笑百步”,说明他的妻子以自我为中心,他本人也好不到哪儿去!

  Question 19:

  A: Joseph, today is the last day for Harry Potter to be on. You promised to watch with me.

  B: sorry, I am exhausted after a day’s work, and the best thing for me now is to his the hay.

  Question: what will Joseph probably going to do?

  解析:本题考点也是谚语:bit the hay,直译为“倒在稻草上”,引申为“睡觉”的意思。

  Question 20:

  A: Cake and Cream are very compatible. They are made for each other.

  B; I can’t agree more.

  Question: What can we learn form. the conversation?

  Question: compatible表示“兼容的,协调的”,they are made for each other是英语中一个常用表达,形容“他们真是天造地设的一对”,用在这里表示这两者的味道调和得无与伦比。
