Q: What are they talking about?
Our family is trying to decide where to go for a vacation this summer. Our son Tom wants to go to Yellow Stone Park again to see the bears. We did that last summer and what an experience it was! When we got there, we put up our tent and went to explore. As we returned, we heard our daughter Susie cry out and then we saw a bear enter our camp. Tom wanted his father to chase him away. His father said, "No, it`s dangerous to chase a bear. And don`t let him chase you." Susie said: "What shall we do?" "Maybe we ought to climb a tree." Tom said: "No, we`ve got to get him out of there. He might go to sleep in our tent." "Maybe we could make him leave if we put some honey outside for him to eat." Susie suggested. Then I said: "How are you going to get the honey? It`s in the tent." We watched the bear enter the tent and heard him upset everything inside. "It`s foolish for us to try to catch him." Said my husband. "Leave him alone and wait for him to come out." We waited but the bear stayed inside. We had to sleep in the car.
Question 11 to 14 are based on the passage you have just heard.
I flew to San Francisco to take care of some business with Mr. Jorden. But as soon as I arrived, I got sick and couldn`t meet with him. I had to call our appointment off. Then when I felt better, I thought about visiting him at his home. But he lived too far away. I tried to telephone him during office hours but he was busy. The receptionist said that Mr. Jorden would call me back. But he didn`t. I gave up trying to make a new appointment because it would take more time and effort than I wanted to spend. A few days later, I saw a man on the street who looked like Mr. Jorden and I called out to him. It was someone else. When I returned to my hotel that day, I found a message which said that Mr. Jorden had gone out of town on some sudden unexpected business. I was sorry I had missed seeing him. But I really enjoyed my sightseeing in San Francisco.

The boy Tom was found early yesterday in the village of Sem as rescuers were working to pull his father out of the ruins of their home. Hearing a faint cry of "Get me out. Get me out", rescuers dug down another one point five meters and found the boy in the icebox. He was pronounced in a good condition, suffering only four or five slight wounds. Tom`s eight brothers and sisters died in the earthquake which officials say may have killed as many as 50,000 people, By Sunday foreign doctors were leaving the earthquake areas as hope had faded of finding any more survivors.
