II. Listening Skills
Girl 1: What do you think of this miniskirt, Amy? Pretty hot stuff, eh?
Girl 2: Wow…it’s pretty short. My mom would never let me wear something like that.
Girl 1: My mom’s cool. She lets me make my own decisions about clothes.
Girl 2: Not my mom. She’d be mad if I came home in a skirt like that.
Girl 1: Let’s both got one; then maybe your mom wouldn’t be so upset if we both wore the same skirt.
Girl 2: Well…maybe.
1.D 2. The first girl(The girl who suggests wearing the short skirt.)
Mother: Lily, where did you get that skirt? You can’t wear that. It’s much too short! What will others think?
Lily: You don’t understand fashion. It’s what everyone is wearing. I think it looks very attractive.
Mother: Nonsense, it’s only suitable for a supermodel on the catwalk. It’s not meant for ordinary people like us. Your dad is sure to say the skirt is far too revealing!
Lily: But it’s really in high fashion; everyone is wearing clothes like this.
Mother: Not everyone. Your friend Amy would never wear a skirt like that!
[Amy comes in, wearing the same style of short skirt!]
Lily: Look, Amy has come. She’s wearing the same skirt!
Mother: My God, I give up.
1. B 2. No, she hasn’t.
III. Listening In
Task 1: A Woman’s Funny Dress
Lily: Mom, look at that woman. Her dress looks funny.
Mother: I wouldn’t say that, Lily. It looks fine to me.
Lily: Are you kidding? She’s out of fashion. That’s last year’s style.
Mother: Oh, come one, as long as it looks good on her.
Lily: Wow, you’re really as out-dated as she is.
Mother: You’re right. I’m out of date. So what? What’s the point of following the fashion?
Lily: No wonder you never buy me new dresses.
