75. One possible version:
Nowadays, most middle school students have pocket money every month, and we did a survey in Class 1, Grade 9.
As the result shows, among the thirty students taking part in the survey, most of them often buy snacks; about a half spend their pocket money on books, and a few save some of it.
However, things on me are quite different. I usually spend most of the money buying good and educational books which I think make me more knowledgeable. Only a small part is spent on snacks as most of the snacks are in fact unhealthy for us. And I save the rest against a rainy day.
It is true that we have more and more pocket money now. Whether we can make good use of it really counts, because it is partly influencing the way we are growing up. 听力录音材料:
1. W: Happy Father’s Day, dad!
M: Thank you, dear.
2. W: Hi! Jack, what does your uncle do?
M: Well, he is a policeman.
3. W: What are you going to do after school?
M: Oh, we’re going to sing in the club.
4. W: Steven, let me help you carry the chairs.
M: That’s very kind of you.
W: Hi! Tom, I’m going to the post office. Would you like to go with me?
M: I’d like to, but I have to go to the library.
W: OK, is there anything that I can do for you?
M: Yes. Could you please buy some stamps for me?
W: No problem. I’ll be back in half an hour.
M: OK. See you later.
W: Tony, is Betty coming for lunch tomorrow?
M: Yes, mum. I told you that yesterday!
W: Oh, did you? Sorry, I forgot.
M: What have you prepared for us, mum?
W: Well, I am just writing out the shopping list for lunch. What kind of food does she like?
M: Anything is OK, but she hates noodles and she never has rice at school.
W: What about pizza, then?
M: Yeah, she enjoys pizza very much.
W: What’s wrong with you?
M: I’m having a headache.
W: Let me see. Hmm, you’d better stay at home and take some medicine.
M: I can’t because I have too many things to do.
W: If you want to keep in good health, you’d better give up studying late at night.
M: Well, I tried. But I still can’t sleep well because I often feel nervous.
W: Did you have something on your mind? Maybe I can help you out.
M: I have lots of homework and I have to get ready for a test. So I’m too nervous.
W: I think you need to have a talk with your teacher.
M: Well, I guess no one can help me but myself. I just need to relax.
I’m Thomas Brown, the headmaster. Today, I’d like to tell you something about our school.
Our fifth graders have just finished the writing test. For the rest of the year, we will be preparing for the spring test for grades 3-5. The reading test dates in May are in the calendars that we gave you at the beginning of this school year. All the speaking tests will be online. Students in Grade Three will be the first group to take the speaking test online. All the students will continue to develop spelling skills to help them with writing.
An important thing to mention is that with a 160-day calendar, students are not allowed to miss more than eight days of school. You are encouraged to tell your children about it. We will examine this carefully during the school year.
Emily Green, a second grade teacher, has been chosen as the most popular teacher of the year. We are all very proud of her.
That’s all for today and thanks for listening!
W: Hi! Bob. I’ve got a new office and some furniture.
M: Great! Congratulations.
W: Thank you, but you know I’m not good at keeping things in good order.
M: Don’t worry. Let me help you. First, you should put the table in front of the sofa.
W: Well, that’s a good idea. But where can I put the sofa, then?
M: Let me see. Just put the sofa in front of the window between the two armchairs.
W: OK. That must be very comfortable. By the way, I really like something natural.
M: Yeah, you can put some plants or flowers near the window. That will make your office more beautiful.
W: Fantastic! And there will be more fresh air in the office.
M: Oh, one more thing, there should be a computer and a telephone in your office.
W: I haven’t got them yet. But I’ll buy a computer next Sunday. Anyway, thanks a lot for your help.
M: My pleasure.
W: Hello, Worldwide Flowers.
M: Hello. I’d like to book some flowers and have them sent to my house.
W: Fine, sir. What kind of flowers do you like?
M: I’d like a dozen red roses.
W: A dozen red roses. That’s a good choice. Our red roses are selling for twelve dollars a dozen this week and they are really nice.
M: All right then. I’ll take them.
W: Would you please tell me your address, sir?
M: OK. My address is 43 Pennsylvania Avenue, Bloomton.
W: What would you like us to put on the card?
M: Hmm, just something simple. How about Happy Birthday?
W: OK. Now, when should they be sent?
M: They should be there before 6:00 pm on June 12th.
W: No problem. Just one more question, sir, how can you pay for them?
M: I’ll use my visa card. The number is JK406.
W: Let me repeat your card number, JK406. Is that right?
W: And what’s your name, sir?
M: Jim Keller. J-I-M, K-E-L-L-E-R. Jim Keller.
W: OK. We’ll have those red roses sent to your house before 6:00 pm on June 12th.
M: Thank you very much.
W: You are welcome. Good-bye.
