六级听力原文:

Since I started working part-time at a grocery store, I have learned that a customer is more than someone who buys something. To me, a customer is a person whose memory fails entirely once he or she starts to push a shopping cart. One of the first things customers forget is how to count. There is no other way to explain how so many people get in their express line, which is clearly marked 15 items or less, with 20, 25 or even a cart load of items. Customers also forget why they came to the store in the first place. Just as I finish ringing up an order, a customer will say, “Oops, I forgot to pick up a fresh loaf of bread. I hope you don’t mind waiting while I go get it.” Five minutes later, he is back with the bread, a bottle of milk, and three rolls of paper towels. Strange as it seems, customers also seem to forget that they have to pay for their groceries. Instead of writing a check or looking for a credit card while I am ringing up the groceries, my customers will wait until I announce the total. Then, in surprise, she says, “Oh no, what did I do with my check book?” After 5 minutes of digging through her purse, she borrows my pen because she’s forgotten hers. But I have to be tolerant of customers because they pay my salary, and that’s something I can’t afford to forget.

16. What does the speaker say about customers’ entering the grocery store?

A) They behave as if their memories have failed totally.

B) They grab whatever they think is a good bargain.

C) They become excited as if they had never been there.

D) They care more about an item’s price than its use.

六级听力参考答案:

16. 正确答案:A

根据第二句中的“to me(对我来说)”可以得知,后面一句话说的是说话人对顾客的观点看法,录音中提到“a customer is a person whose memory fails entirely once he or she starts to push a shopping card.”,其中“pushing a shopping cart(推购物车)”形象地代指题干中提到的“entering a grocery store”。录音中的“Memory fails entirely”和A项提到的“memory fails totally”完全一致,因此A为正确答案。

17. Which customers are supposed to be in the express line?

A) Those with a VIP card.

B) Those paying in cash.

C) Those needing assistance.

D) Those with 15 items or less.

17. 正确答案:D

录音中提到(第三行末尾)“没有其他原因能解释为什么那么多人进入快速结账通道”,这句话是上一句的结果。“which is clearly marked 15 items or less”这一部分是which引导的定语从句,解释说明“express line”,意思是“明显标记着15件以下商品”。四个选项中,只有D答案符合题意。

18. What does the speaker say some customers do when they arrive at the check-out counter?

A) Change the items they have picked up.

B) Go back and pick up more items.

C) Take out some unwanted purchases.

D) Calculate the total cost of the groceries.

18. 正确答案:B

题干中问道“说话人认为一些顾客在结账时会做什么”。录音中和“结账”相对应的表达有“ring up” 意为“用收银机记录收入的钱,收银机扫条形码”。说话人提到“有的顾客在结账时突然忘了买某样东西,于是回去拿,结果回来时还多拿了其他东西”,只有B答案“Go back and pick up more items”和录音完全对应,故为正确答案。

19. What does the speaker say about his job at the end of the talk?

A) It requires tolerance.

B) It calls for carefulness .

C) It involves communication skills.

D) It needs a good knowledge of math.

19. 正确答案:A

录音中跟“job”相关的是最后一句,这一点可以通过“pay my salary”来辨别。最后一句是一个转折,前面一整段都表明说话人对顾客的行为是持有消极态度的,顾客的行为让他很无奈,但最后一句话锋一转,指出 “But I have to be tolerant of customers because they pay my salary.(但是我不得不容忍,因为他们付给我工资)”。选项A出现了“tolerance”和录音中的“tolerant”是同根词,意思是“我的工作需要容忍”,完全符合题意,故为正确答案。
