  Part A

Start interpreting at the signal…and stop it at the signal…You may take notes while you are listening. Remember you will hear the passages only once. Now let us begin Part A with the first passage.
  Passage 1:
  We are meeting here to call for changes in the US patent laws. We believe such changes in the US patent laws are needed to deal with new business models related to the Internet.//
  US patent laws are designed to protect the commercial rights of people who have invested in new products or techniques. And I propose that the period of protection should be cut form 17 years to 3 years.//
  From my experience of working with Hi-Technology companies in California’s Silicon Valley, the biggest problems arise when existing patent protections for business methods are combined with the Internet.//
  If changes in the patent laws are going to have any real impact, they must be made soon. Some of my colleagues in the industry have already begun lobbying lawmakers to make the changes.//
  (参考答案)
  我们在此集会,要求/呼吁修改美国专利法。我们认为专利法必须加以修改才能应付与互联网有关的一些新商业模式。.//
  制订美国专利法是为了保护那些投资开发新产品或新技术的人的商业权利。我在这里提议专利权的保护期应该从原来的17年缩短为3年。//
  凭我在加州硅谷高科技公司的工作经验,当现行的商务行为的专利保护同因特网联系在一起时,就会出现最严重的问题。//
  如果想让专利法的修改能真正起到作用,那就必须加快(修订)速度。我的一些同行已经开始游说立法者修改(法律)。//

  Passage 2:
  It has been a fashion nowadays that people own private cars. It has been rightly said that owning a private car is a symbol of living a high-quality life.//
  But, personally, when a man is sitting behind a steering wheel, his car becomes the extension of his personality. There is no doubt that the motor-car often brings out a man’s very worst qualities.//
  People who are normally quiet and pleasant may become unrecognizable when steering a wheel. The surprising thing is that society smiles so kindly on the motorist and seems to forgive his for his behavior.//
  Because of heavy traffic, many cities and towns become almost uninhabitable. And year in year out, mass annual slaughter in traffic accidents becomes more a statistic figure, to be conveniently forgotten.
  (参考答案)
  如今,人们拥有私车是一种时髦。有人说的对,拥有私车象征着享有高质量的生活。//
  然而我以为当一个坐在方向盘后时,他的车子便是他个性的延伸.毫无疑问,汽车常常展示一个人最糟的品质。//
  平时温文尔雅之士,一旦坐于方向盘后,可能会判若两人。令人吃惊的是,社会竟对开车者笑脸相迎,悦目以待,对其行为似乎网开一面。//
  由于交通拥挤,城市和乡镇变得几乎难以居住,年复一年,每年大规模的车毁人亡,成了只不过是个统计数字,不久便会被忘却。
