  Woman: What is it about, please?

  Man: Well, I understand that your company has a chemical processing plant. My own company LCP, Liquid Control Products, is a leader in safety from leaks in the field of chemical processing. I’d like to speak to Mr. Grand to discuss ways in which we could help TGC to protect itself from such problems and save money at the same time.

  Woman: Yes, I see. Well, Mr. Grand is not available just now.

  Man: Can you tell me when I could reach him?

  Woman: He’s very busy for the next few days. Then he’ll be away in New York. So it’s difficult to give you a time.

  Man: Could I speak to someone else, perhaps?

  Woman: Who, in particular?

  Man: A colleague, for example?

  Woman: You are speaking to his personal assistance. I can deal with calls for Mr. Grand.

  长对话二

  Man: Miss Yamada, did you ever think that you would find yourself living and working in the western world?

  Woman: No, not really, although I’ve always listened to recordings of great orchestras from Europe.

  Man: So you enjoyed classical music even when you were very young?

  Woman: Oh, yes. I was an only child.

  Man: You were born in 1955, is that right?

  Woman: Yes, I began violin lessons at school when I was 6.

  Man: As young as that, did you like it?

  Woman: Oh, yes, very much.

  Man: When did you first play on your own? I mean, when did you give your first performance?

  Woman: I think I was 8…? No, Nine. I just had my birthday a week before, and my father had bought me a new violin. I played a small piece at the school concert.

  Man: Did you know then that you would become a professional violinist?

  Woman: Yes, I think so. I enjoy playing the violin very much, and I didn’t mind practicing, sometimes three or four hours a day.

  Man: And when did you first come to Europe?

  Woman: I was very lucky. When I was fifteen, I won a scholarship to a college in Paris. That was for a three-year course.

  Man: How did your parents feel about that?

  Woman: I think they were pleased and worried at the same time. It was the chance of a lifetime. But of course I would be thousands of miles from home. Anyway, I studied in Paris for three years and then went back to Tokyo.

  Passage 3

  The British are supposed to be famous for laughing at themselves, but even their sense of humour has a limit, as the British retailer Gerald Ratner found out to his cost. When Ratner took over his father's chain of 130 jewelry shops in 1984, he introduced a very clear company policy. He decided that his shops should sell down market products at the lowest possible prices. It was a great success. The British public loved his cheap gold earrings and his tasteless silver ornaments. By 1991, Ratner's company had 2,400 shops and it was worth over 680 million pounds. But in April of that year, Gerald Ratner made a big mistake. At a big meeting of top British businesspeople, he suited up and explained the secret of his success. People say "How can we sell our goods for such a low price?" I say "Because they are absolute rubbish." His audience roared with laughter. But the British newspapers and the British public were not so amused. People felt insulted and stayed away from Ratner's shops. Sales fell and 6 months after his speech, Ratner's share price had fallen by 42%. The following year, things got worse and Gerald Ratner was forced to resign. By the end of 1992, he lost his company, his career and his house. Even worse, 25,000 of his employees had lost their jobs. It had been a very expensive joke.

  Question 22 What did Gerald Ratner decide to do when he took over his father's shops?

  Question 23 On what occasion did Gerald Ratner explained the secret of his success?

  Question 24 How did people feel when they leaned of Gerald Ratner's remarks?

  Question 25 What does the story of Gerald Ratner suggest?
