Conversation Two
M: I really don't know what to do this summer. [23]I can't afford to just sit around, and there don't seem to be any jobs available.
W: Why don't you try house-sitting? Last summer my friend Margaret house-sat for the Dodds when they went away on vacation. [24]Mr. Dodd hired Margaret to stay in their house because he didn't want it left empty.
M: You mean the Dodds paid Margaret just to live in their house?
W: It wasn't that easy. She had to mow and water the houseplants. And when Eric house-sat for Mr.Cohen, he had to take care of his pets.
M: House-sitting sounds like a good job. I guess it's a little like baby-sitting-except you're taking care of a house instead of children.
W: The student employment office still has a few jobs posted.
M: Do I just have to fill out an application?
W: Margaret and Eric had to interview [25]with the house owners and provide three references each.
M: That seems like a lot of trouble for a summer job.
W: The house owners want some guarantee that they can trust the house-sitters. You know, they want to make sure you're not the type who will throw wild parties in their house, or move groups of friends in with you.
M: House-sitters who do that sort of things probably aren't paid then.
W: Usually they are paid anyway just because the homeowners don't want to make a fuss. But if the homeowner reported it, then the house-sitter wouldn't be able to get another job. So, why don't you apply?

Questions 23 to 25 are based on the conversation you have just heard.
23. What does the man want to do this summer?
正确答案:D
解析:男士说不能只是闲着(sit around),但又没有现成的工作(jobs available),说明他想干些工作,也就是说想赚些钱,所以D正确。选项中的信号词提示,对话主题与学生在暑假期间的计划相关。开门见山地提出问题,牢记:文章开头即问题出处之一。
24. What did the Dodds do when they went away last summer?
正确答案:A
解析:女士说:“Mr. Dodd雇Margaret留在他的房子里。”所以A正确。选项都是关于某人的动作,很显然“They”就是房屋的主人。C是强干扰项,对话讲的并不是租房子,而是雇人看房子。提问处是考点,其实就是对上文叙述的一个总结。没有听清楚的话,可以从上文作推断。
25. How do homeowners determine the reliability of a house-sitter?
正确答案:B
解析:女士说,Margaret和Eric要经过房主的面试,并且要提供三份证明。所以B正确。They选项题。由关键词house-sitter可猜测题目和房主挑选house-sitter有关。references在原文中出现过,属原音重现,听到什么就选什么。
