Listening (60 pts):

The listening test will be done in a different manner than in the past this time. In the Language Lab, you will be given a total control of the computer, instead of the teacher conrtolling everthing from the podium. You may stop, rewind, and listen to the audio in any way you like during the 40 minute-test-time. If you decide to let the audio play without stopping, you will hear each dialogue of Part 1 repeated twice, Part 2 three times, and finally Part 3 three times, as you usually do for our listening test. The total time of the exam is 26:45 minutes. Therefore, you will have an extra 10 minutes to go back and listen to any portion that you want to listen again.

Part I (Questions#1-10): Listen to 10 short dialogues between Mr. Kawamura and Ms. Machida and choose the best answer from A, B, C, or D. The two are talking casually, not in です/ます, and you will be hearing 「の?」at the end of quesiton sentences such as in「どこへ行くの?」'Where are you going?'

Part II (Questions #11-20):(Questions #21-30): Listen to a dialogue between a store clerk and a customer that takes place at a store, and choose the best answer from A, B, C, or D.
