Announcement from the President
The university has decided to increase tuition and fees for all students by approximately 8 percent next semester. For the past five years, the tuition and fees have remained the same, but it is necessary to increase them now for several reasons. The university has many more students than we had five years ago, and we must hire additional professors to teach these students, We have also made a new commitment to research and technol**y and will be renovating and upgrading our laboratory facilities to better meet our students’ needs.
Man: Great, now we have to come up with more money for next semester.
Woman: Yeah, I know, but I can see why. When I first started here, classes were so much smaller than they are now. With these many students, it's hard to get the personal attention you need.
Man: Yeah, I guess you're right. In some classes I can't even get a seat. And I couldn’t take the math course I wanted to because it was already full when I signed up.
Woman: And the other thing is, well, I am kind of worried about not being able to get a job after I graduate.
Man: Why? You're doing really well in your classes, aren't you?
Woman: I'm doing OK, but the facilities here are so limited. There are some great new experiments in microbiol**y that we can’t even do here. There isn't enough equipment in the laboratories, and the equipment they have is out of date. How am I going to compete for jobs with people who have practical research experience? I think the extra tuition will be a good investment.
the woman expresses her opinion of the announcement made by the university president. State her opinion and explain the reasons she gives for holding that opinion.

音频听完了相信大家应该能够判断出sample 1不管是从句子的完整性、回答的长度还是语言的清晰度来说都比sample 2要好一些，可是考生的语言运用还不够准确，并且复述的信息和考试所给材料有较大的出入，所以在实际考试中只能拿到2分的成绩。我们来一起看一下给出的两分评分标准。
2.训练listening for details，抓听力材料中的主要内容(第三题主要记学生的态度及理由，第四题及例子，第五题记问题及解决方案，第六题只需要记教授所讲的概念的两个点及相关例子即可)
