After you hear a question, you must choose the best answer from the four choices marked A), B), C) and D). Then mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 1 with a single line through the centre.

  • B.Few countries know how to address the current economic crisis.
  • C.Few countries have realized the seriousness of the current crisis.
  • D.Many countries need support to improve their people’s livelihood.
  • 解题思路:录音中提到“... Juan Somavia notes that some countries have taken measures to address the effects of the global crisis. However, he points out that many countries have not done so”,由此可知Somavia认为很少有国家意识到当前经济危机的重要性。故C项正确。
    【录音原文】
      News report 1
      [1]The international labor organization says the number of people without jobs is increasing. In its latest update on global employment trends, the agency says projections of the number on unemployed people this year range from 210 million to nearly 240 million people. The report warns that 200 million poor workers are at risk of joining the ranks of people living on less than 2 dollars per day in the past 3 years. [2]The director general of the international labor organization Juan Somavia notes that some countries have taken measures to address the effects of the global crisis. However, he points out that many countries have not done so. And based on past experiences, it takes 4-5 years after economic recovery for unemployment to return to pre-crisis levels. Mr. Somavia says the international labor organization is proposing a global jobs agreement to deal with unemployment. “Its key objective is to place the center of recovery efforts, measures that will generate higher levels of employment and provide basic social protection for the most vulnerable.”
      Questions 1 and 2 are based on the news report you have just heard.

      Q2. What does Juan Somavia, director general of the international labor organization say?
2.[单选题]___________________.

  • 解题思路:新闻开头提到“The international labor organization says the number of peoplewithout jobs is increasing”,紧接着具体介绍了“失业人口增涨”这一现象,并提出相关解决方案。由此可知,本篇新闻的主题是世界范围内的失业人口增长问题。
