LINDA: Yeah, you should be able to get something reasonable for 850 pounds per month. That’s what people typically pay. You certainly wouldn’t want to pay more than 900 pounds. That doesn’t include bills or anything.
LINDA: Well, I’m very lucky. I work in the city centre so I don’t have to use public transport. I go by bike.
解题思路: 这个题的答案是非常直接简单的。提到了by bike，而且前文明确说到了不适用公共交通。
LINDA: Yes, it’s fine. And it keeps me fit. Anyway, driving to work in the city centre would be a nightmare because there’s hardly any parking. And the traffic during the rush hour can be bad.
解题思路：在原文中there’s hardly any parking也就是parking 非常受到限制，定位信息在city centre。
LINDA: Oh, that’s perfect. Getting to London is no problem. There’s a fast train every 30 minutes, which only takes 45 minutes.
LINDA: Yeah, the train service isn’t bad during the week. And they run quite late at night. It’s weekends that are a problem. They’re always doing engineering work and you have to take a bus to Hadham and pick up the train there, which is really slow. But other than that, Banford’s a great place to live. I’ve never been happier.
解题思路：train service是非常好确定的定位信息，既然在weekends 是一个问题，那也就是说在weekends，这个是不好的，poor。
LINDA: There are some nice restaurants in the city centre and a brand new cinema which has only been open a couple of months. There’s a good arts centre too.
解题思路：题干中Banford这个地址信息是用于帮助定位的，opened recently和原文been open a couple of months是同义表达，注意不要填写restaurants作为答案是因为空前有个new修饰。
LINDA: Yes! We’re really lucky. There are lots of really good aspects to living here. The schools are good and the hospital here is one of the best in the country.
LINDA: …Everyone I know who’s been there’s had a positive experience. Oh, I can give you the name of my dentist too in Bridge Street, if you’re interested. I’ve been going to him for years and I’ve never had any problems.
解题思路：Bridge Street是我们要听取的定位信息，所以答案是dentist;good 体现在“I’ve been going to him for years and I’ve never had any problems.”。
LINDA: I could meet you if you like and show you around.
MATT: Are you sure? We’d really appreciate that.
LINDA: Either a Tuesday or Thursday is good for me. After 5.30.
MATT: Thursday’s preferable - Tuesday I need to get home before 6 pm.
LINDA: OK. Great. Let me know which train you’re catching and I’ll meet you in the café outside. You can’t miss it. It’s opposite the station and next to the museum.
MATT: Brilliant. I’ll text you next week then. Thanks so much for all the advice.
LINDA: No problem. I’ll see you next week.
解题思路：定位信息在opposite the station，就是注意这个信息出现在答案之后，很容易错过，但是听清了之后，这里地点位置信息词也就一个café，对瞬时记忆的要求并不高。
The first question to ask yourself is whether you would enjoy training in a gym. Many people are put off by the idea of having to fit a visit to the gym into their busy day - you often have to go very early or late as some gyms can get very crowded. But with regular training you’ll see a big difference in a relatively short space of time.
解题思路：利用gym来定位，a big difference就是选项F中的results，a relatively short space of time 就是fast，所以答案是F选项。注意依据But这个信号词来锁定答案信息。
