to speak to people in a foreign language requires courage and willingness to make errors.some people are so afraid of

making mistakes that they never open their mouths.and thats the biggest mistake of all.now if you have courage and are ready to make a few errors,what do you say?

first of all, you have to open the conversation.finding an appropriate topic is half the battle.some topics, such as the weather and news, work well.but others, such as age, money or peoples appearance do not.the following are some good ways to open a conversation.

weather — it sure is cold today, isnt it?

news — did you hear about that terrible forest fire?

a conversation in a foreign language doesnt always go

smoothly.sometimes your partner talks too fast and you find it difficult to follow.not to worry, though.you can always ask your partner to repeat what he has said or to speak more slowly.for example,excuse me, but could you say that again? i didnt

catch it.or could you speak more slowly, please?at the end of a conversation you need to find a way to close it in a polite

way.well, i really need to be going or it was nice talking to youis frequently used by people to end a conversation. exercise 2:listening for details

答案】

s=txt>unit 1 sports part a] listening strategy identifying numbers

numbers appear very often in every kind of listening material. the ability to catch the exact numbers spoken in english is an important but difficult skill for a chinese learner. a good way is to practice over and over again the pronunciation of the numbers, particularly the different ways to say thirteen and thirty, fourteen and forty, etc. it also helps to practice writing down the numbers you hear quickly in numerical forms, without translating them into chinese. youre going to hear a passage about michael jordan, a retired american professional basketball player.

listen carefully and fill in the blanks with the missing numbers. michael jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time. he was born on feb.17, 1963, in brooklyn, new york. he is 1.98 meters tall and weighs 216 pounds. jordan joined the chicago bulls team for the 1984 season. in the 1986 season he shot 3041 points, the third highest score ever. he was named nba slam dunk champion(扣篮冠军)in 1987 and won the most

valuable player award in 1988, an honor repeated four times in the next ten years to 1998. jordan guided his team to win six nba championships during the 1990s, scoring 45 points during the sixth and last game of the 1998 nba finals. in 1999, he was named the greatest north american athlete of the 20th century. jordan left the nba at the beginning of the 1993-1994 nba

season to pursue a career in baseball. since his baseball game wasnt quite as good as his basketball games, he finally gave it up to rejoin the bulls in 1995. yet, after playing for five more years, he once again announced his retirement in 1999. but he returned for two more nba games in 2001 as a member of the washington wizards.
