Part IV. Short Talks
Questions 1 through 3 refer to the following talk.
(M) Next year, I will be taking biology. However, to be honest, I really don't want to take biology.
I used to enjoyed biology, but next year I don't want to take it because we will have to dissect a worm,
a frog, and a mouse. Frankly, the thought of cutting open a little frog or mouse is pretty disgusting to
to me. I have never even touched a mouse before. I don't know if I can do it I think that student should
have the right to refuse to do animal experiments. I think we should be able to watch a video or look
at pictures in a book instead. It is not necessary to kill animals for our studies. Maybe I can change
my class from biology to geology. In geology, we study rocks. I don't mind cutting open a rock. I don't
mind cutting open a rock.
Questions 4 through 6 refer to the following talk.
(W) I have been teaching astronomy at a private university for almost 15 years. I have always wanted to be
an astronomer. Astronomers look at the stars and planets through giant telescope. Even when I was a child,
I used to go outside at night to look at the stars. I learned the names of the most important stars before
I learned how to write. The university where I work as an astronomy teacher has a giant telescope.
It is inside an observatory at the top of a small mountain near my university. Usually, I go there
on the weekends and watch the stars. Observatories with telescopes need to bee in very quite dark places
like mountains because the lights from the cities can make the stars very hard to see. I get such a peaceful
feeling when I look at the night sky.
