Suggested answer:

It is difficult to understand why some couples thrive on conflict. Maybe each one wants to compete with the other, or maybe they enjoy "kissing and making up" after the conflict.

If you ask me, real life is not all it's cracked up to be. Twelve years at school and three

years at university, teachers banging on about opportunities in the big wide world beyond

our sheltered life as students, and what do I find?

Try as I might to stay cheerful, all I ever get is hassle, sometimes with people (especially

boys, god, when will they grow up?), but mostly with money. It's just so expensive out here!

Everyone wants a slice off you. The Inland Revenue wants to deduct income tax, the bank

manager wants repayments on my student loan, the landlord wants the rent, gas, water,

electricity and my mobile bills keep coming in, and all that's before I've had anything to eat.

And then some bright spark calls me out of the blue, asking if I'm interested in buying a

pension. At this rate, I won't even last till the end of the year, let alone till I'm

新标准大学英语网课第一单元答案

Suggested answer:

依我看,现实生活并没有人们想象的那么好。我们上了12年的中、小学,又上了3年的大学,这期间老师们一直在没完没了地谈论在备受呵护的学生生活之外的那个广阔天地里的各种机会,可我遇到的又是什么呢?

无论我怎么想保持心情愉快,可麻烦事总是接踵而来:有时是和人发生矛盾(尤其是跟男孩子,天哪!他们什么时候才能长大?),但通常是为钱发愁。这个地方什么东西都很贵!人人都想从我身上赚点钱:税务局要收个人所得税,银行经理要我偿清学生贷款,房东催我交房租、燃气费、水费、电费,手机账单也不断地寄来。所有这些还没算上吃饭的钱。更可气的是,不知从哪里冒出一个自作聪明的家伙给我打电话,问我要不要买养老金。照这样下去,我甚至都支撑不到年底,更别提活到60岁领养老金了。

Part III: Reading Comprehension

Questions 41 to 45 are based on the following passage.

You've written your resume. You've fine tuned your cover letter. You've completed the application. You've lined up your references. Finally, you've been invited to an interview for a job! Interviewing for jobs can be a daunting (yet exhilarating) prospect. Like anything, you will get better with practice. However, the more practice you have in job interviews usually means you're also racking up the rejections, and no one likes to experience too much rejection.

Now that you've landed an interview, what's the best way to impress the hiring official, be invited back for a second interview, and get offered the job? You need to be prepared, and, surprisingly, it's incredibly important to know what not to say during an interview. One slip could mean the difference between a job offer and a rejection. With that in mind, here are the things you should never say during a job interview.

How much does the job pay?

As a general rule, wages and salaries are not usually discussed during a first interview. Asking about this makes you seem like you only care about money. Even if you are invited to a second or third interview, let the employer bring up the topic of money. Be prepared to tell them how much you're expecting. Give a range of what you'd accept rather than a specific amount. Estimating too high or too low might automatically knock you out of the running. It's important to do your research, though. How much do other employers pay?

What's the going rate for the position?

What does your company do?

If you don't know what the company makes or does, why are you interviewing for them? Do your research. With the unbelievable amount of information available on the Internet and at the local library, there's absolutely no excuse for ignorance. You should walk into the interview knowing a lot about the company.

I didn't get along with my old boss because . . .

Criticizing a previous employer implies that you may do the same to them when you leave. Instead, explain how you overcame a difference of opinion and how you managed difficult situations. Don't dwell on negative issues, and make your answer short.

I don't have any questions for you.

Of course you do. Saying you don't have any questions indicates you aren't very interested in the job or don't know much about the company. Do your research and walk into the interview with questions. Try to think of questions that the interviewer won't answer as part of the introduction. For example, ask about expansion plans or future development within the company.

I've been going through a rough patch at home . . .

Interviewers will probably ask you to share something about yourself. Remember to keep your response pertinent to the job and position. Talk about your education, previous employment, goals, and ambitions. If you mention hobbies or personal interests, keep it short. Do not discuss personal problems.

In five years, I want to live on a tropical island.

When asked about your future, employers want to know how your goals will benefit their company.

Saying anything else will tell them that you aren't ambitious or interested in the job at hand. What do you

want to achieve in this job or in this industry?
