 1. M:   Since you’re studying biological engineering, I guess
         you want to be a biological engineer?
   W:    Yes, but I know that will be a big challenge for me.
   Q:    What are the two speakers talking about?


 2. M:   Why did you choose civil engineering as your major
         instead of biological engineering, Nancy?
   W:    Well, as a matter of fact, my first choice was electrical
         engineering, and civil engineering is my second.
   Q:    What is Nancy’s major now?

                             Dialogue 1


Lucy: What do you do in the car factory, Tom?
Tom:     I’m on a team responsible for designing new models.
Lucy: So you’re an engineer, aren’t you?
Tom:     Yes. And we work under constant pressure.
Lucy: Really? What kind of pressure?
Tom:     We have to come up with a new model every few months.
Lucy: But why is that?
Tom:     Just to appeal to customers. Are you considering buying a
         new car?

Lucy: No, Tom. Not at present. Cars are not clothes that can be
      changed frequently.
Tom:     My wife says the same thing. But when she went to the car
         show last month, she was so attracted to a new model that
         she decided to buy one then and there.
Lucy: Really? No wonder my husband keeps complaining about
      his car recently.

         built?
W:       Between 595 and 605.
M:       Wow, such a long, long time ago. Do you know its length
         and width?
W:       Sure. It’s over 37 meters long and 9 meters wide.
M:       Who designed and built the bridge?
W:       A man called Li Chun.
M:       I think he was really a great engineer.

W:       Considering the technical limitations of the time, the bridge

M:       I once saw its photo on the Internet. It looks really
