    [1]. A teenage boy had cancer and was in hospital for several weeks to undergo radiation treatment and chemotherapy. During that time, he lost all of his hair. On the way home from the hospital, he was worried, not about the cancer, but about the embarrassment of going back to school with a bald head. He had already decided not to wear a wig or a hat.

    [2]. When he arrived home, he walked through the front door and turned on the lights. To his surprise, about fifty of his friends jumped up and shouted, Welcome home! The boy looked around the room and

    could hardly believe his eyes ... all fifty of his friends had shaved their heads!

    [3]. Wouldnt we all like to have caring friends who were so

    sensitive and committed to us that they would sacrifice their hair for us if thats what it took to make us feel loved? Friends like that are the greatest treasure we could have in our lives.

Part B

    Topic: Love in Cyberspace a Radio Talk Goal: to learn about the new trend of finding friends and love

    on the Internet

    Listening Task 1

    Love in Cyberspace a Radio Talk

    In the past, people spent a lot of time communicating with their friends face to face. This gave them the chance to meet the ones they liked and find the ones they loved. Nowadays, however, people seem to engage themselves less in this traditional type of communication but spend more time in Internet chat rooms. Those against this new

    communication trend argue that looking for friendship or love online will not be successful because everything online is unreal. But here are words

    of comfort for anyone who has spent more time than he should in online chat rooms a British psychologist has found that courtships begun in

    cyberspace can very well lead to true love. Many virtual relationships

    thrive once online partners meet face to face because they already know each other so well through their online encounters, said Jeffrey Gavin, a

    lecturer in psychology at the University of Bath. Chat rooms dont lead

    to shallow and impersonal relationships, Gavin said in an interview. On

    the contrary, they lead to really close relationships because people express themselves more freely and are more open and honest on the Internet. Gavin carried out in-depth interviews with 42 regular chat room users aged 19 to 26. Of the volunteers he studied, 29 reported close friendships or romantic relationships with people they met online, with 21 progressing to be married. What tends to happen is that, when they meet,

    its a very smooth transition from online to offline because they know

    each other so well, said Gavin, who presented his findings to the annual conference of the British Psychological Society in Blackpool.

    1. They met and communicated with each other face to face.

    2. They spend time chatting with each other in Internet chat rooms.

    3. He is a lecturer in psychology at the University of Bath.

    4. Regular chat room users aged 19 to 26.

    5. The annual conference of the British Psychological Society in

    Blackpool.

Listening Task 2

1. Topic: Love in Cyberspace

    2. General belief: Chat rooms lead to shallow and impersonal

    relationships.

    Reason: Everything online is unreal.

    3. Gavins opinion: Courtships begun in cyberspace can very well

    lead to true love.

    Reason: People express themselves more freely and are more open

    and honest on the Internet, so their relationships develop very

    well.

     Factual evidence for the argument: Out of 42 people studied, 29 of

    them reported close friendships or romantic relationships with

    people they met online, and 21 got married.

Language Follow-Up

    1. Those against this new trend argue that looking for friendship or love online will not be successful because everything online is unreal.

反对这种时尚的人认为在网络上寻找友谊或爱情不会成功,因为

    网上的一切都是不真实的。

    2. Here are words of comfort for anyone who has spent more time than

    he should in online chat rooms.

    以下这些话可令那些花了太多时间上网聊天的人得到些许安慰。

    3. Many virtual relationships thrive once online partners meet face to

    face because they already know each other so well through their

    online encounters.

    很多“虚拟”关系在网友见面后往往蓬勃发展,因为他们已经通

    过网上的接触对彼此有了相当的了解。

4. What tends to happen is that, when they meet, its a very smooth

    transition from online to offline because they know each other so

    well.

    通常情况是,网上关系会在双方见面后非常顺利地过渡到现实生

    活中,因为他们已经相知甚深。
