Unit 8 Lesson 29
exercise 1.Listen to Annie and Lingshi
talking about the exams and say whether the sentences are true (T) or false (F).
Annie:Hi,Lingshi.Are you ready?
Lingshi:Ready for what?I'm not sure what you mean.
Annie:I mean,are you ready for the exams?
Lingshi:Oh,yes.I think so.I've been studying a lot.
Annie:You know,I heard something yesterday.
Lingshi:Do you mean about the exams?
Annie:Yes.I don't know where the information came from or who heard it first,
but some students are saying that the P.E.exam
will be a little different this year.
Lingshi:Well,I don't know how true that is,
but I know what I'm going to do
Annie:And what is that?
Lingshi:I'm not going to listen to talk like that
Only a few teachers know what's in the exams and they won't tell anybody.
Lingshi:Glad about what?Are you glad that they won't say anything?
No,I'm glad that we're both going to study hard and forget what other people say.
Lingshi:Right!By the way,are you going to Sally's after school?
Annie:I haven't decided whether to go or not.
I'll have to see how much work I've done.
Lingshi:Oh,you must come!
I'm sure that everyone there will be talking about them.
Annie:Talking about what?Lingshi:The exams!
exercise 1.Read Miss Liu's advice to her students about exams
and answer the questions.
You needn't be frightened of exams!
by Miss Liu,English teacher
Very few people enjoy exams.I don't.
And although I tell myself not to worry about them,I always do!
So I am not surprised that my students worry about them too
even though they usually don't need to.
However,since it is hard not to worry at all
we must all try not to worry too much.
Why?Because worrying makes exams worse!How to do this?
A lot of students think and say things like,'Exams are so difficult!'
'I've got such a lot to learn',
'I fotget things so easily!'This is not helpful or useful.
Don't do it,as it won't make you feel good!
Good students don't wait until the week before an exam to start studying.
They study all through the year.
It is not possible to learn everything at the last minute.
So don't leave it till then!
Too many students just try to remember what they have been taught.
This is not enough!
You must understand things so that you can use them and not just repeat them.
Ask yourself,'Do I really understand this?'
and if answer is 'no',ask your classmates,teachers or parents for help.
If you start planning and working for each exam early
and you make sure that you understand what you are studying,
then,when it is over,you'll be able to say,'What a good exam that was!'
Lesson 31 exercise 1.
Listen to Miss Liu's instructions for the listening exam
and answer the questions.
Good morning,class,and welcome to the listening exam.
I hope that everyone had a good sleep last night so that this morning,
you'll be able to show me what you have learned this year
Now,before we start,there are several things that I need to tell you.
First,before I hand out the exam papers
you should put all the penspencils and erasers that you will need on your desks.
Has everyone done that?No?Well,do it quickly now.
I don't need to tell you that you mustn't talk from now until the end,do I?
Second,when I put an exam paper on your desk
you must NOT turn it over until I tell you to.
As soon as I have done that,make sure that you have all the pages
there are three pages in our test today
and write your name and number on the first page.
After that,I will start the tape.
While you are listening to the tape you should write notes.
You mustn't try to write everything.
Just write the important ideas.
These will help you to write your answers.
When you are writing you answers
you should try to remember how much time you have.
It is better to write a short,correct answer than a long,unfinished one.
At the end of the tape
you will have another two minutes to finish your answers.
But,as soon as I tell you to stop writing,you must put down your pens.
Sit quietly in your seats until I have collected and counted
all them exam papers.
Then,when I say to,you may go.
Now,are there any questions before we begin?
more or less
sit an exam
lesson 32 exercise 1.
Annie wrote to Kelly before and after the English exam.
Read her e-mails and then do the exercises below and on page 86.
Hi,Kelly.This may be the last e-mail that my parents will let me write to you for a week or two.
As our exams are getting closer
they have asked me not to do anything except school work from now on
They want me to give up practising the guitar,
to stop watching TV,and so on,until the exams are over.
I know that I have to do this,and I don't mind doing it
but I will miss writing to you.
I began to study for the exams quite a long time ago
so I feel more or less ready for most of them.
But,that doesn't mean that I'm not nervous!
I keep telling myself that I needn't be
but I can't always make myself believe it!
Like most people,I really would prefer not to sit exams!
Well,I'd better finish writing now and go to bed.
Don't forget to think about me from time to time
and remember to wish me good luch next Friday.
That's the day that we have our English exam!
Hello.It's me again!
You know,Kelly,sitting exams might not be fun but finishing them is wonderful!
I'm so happy that I feel like singing!
I think that I did all right in everything except science
which I didn't finish in time.
I even enjoyed doing the English exam!
Now we can start writing teach other again as often as we like.
Tell me,Kelly,have you ever tried to cook any Chinese food?
I'm learning to make my favourite dish,Furongdan.
It's made with eggs and it's very delicious.
If you like,I could teach you to make it too.
I hope to hear from you soon.
