雅思OGtest3听力section2第一题正确答案为C，重要听力原文we a have only three days to prepare for the birthday party this weekend.下面来看具体的解题思路，均在本文雅思OGtest3听力section2听力原文题目及答案解析【附MP3音频】内容介绍。

Question 11

答案：C

定位原文：we a have only three days to prepare for the birthday party this weekend.

解题思路：We've been exceptionally busy, especially with the wedding last weekend and the trade fair straight after that. And now…提示下文即将讨论下一个活动是什么。定位到we a have only three days to prepare for the birthday party this weekend。考生一定要注意听出过去时和现在时的区别，在英语表达中，过去时就是表示已经发生了的事情，比如在听力中的last weekend，现在时就是表示现在和要发生的事情，比如听力中的and now we have three days to…，“现在我们离做某事还有3天的时间”，即将来要做的事。

Question 12

答案：B

定位原文：though we usually only cater for groups of less than fifty, we will have quite a few more than that. So -as I said - not sure of numbers but of course we won't go over the maximum of 100.

解题思路：At the moment, we don't have exact numbers of guests. 提示下文即将讨论客人数量的预估，定位到though we usually only cater for groups of less than fifty, we will have quite a few more than that. So -as I said - not sure of numbers but of course we won't go over the maximum of 100. 注意这道题的答案是一个数量范围，所以在听的时候要做好记下2个数字的准备。cater for, “服务，提供饮食或饮料“;quite a few, “不少，相当多”;go over，超过;the maximum of ，“最多是多少”。

Question 13

答案：A

定位原文：Well the invitation says guests should arrive between 7.30 and 7.45 but our experience is that there are always a few who like to arrive early so we'll expect the first people at 7.15.

解题思路：So what time will the event start?，提示下文将讨论具体的活动开始和客人到达的时间。定位到Well the invitation says … the first people at 7.15. 这句复合句用but表示了前后的转折，要注意重点听转折之后的部分，这句复合句中出现了3个时间，只有最后出现的7.15是正确答案。转折前是邀请函上写的客人到达时间，转折后阐述了实际的客人会开始到达的时间，所以这种情况可以把个时间都写下来，然后根据句意选择正确答案。

Question 14

答案：B

定位原文：So - the hosts know someone who is a comedian who will be replacing the band.

解题思路：the entertainment will start about two hours later.. 提示下文将讨论娱乐表演的内容和表演者。定位到So - the hosts know someone who is a comedian who will be replacing the band。注意在这句话之前的一句话出现了一个干扰答案，Now, for this, we were expecting a live band for the occasion which is always fun, but apparently this has been cancelled due to illness. 一定要注意表转折的连词在听力内容中的出现，这里面的but后面直接说的是live band的表演被取消了。所以要继续听后面的真正的娱乐表演者是谁。

Question 15

答案：C

定位原文：If I remember correctly, it was Olav who coordinated the task of providing the guests with drinks or was it Ahmed?

Um, I'm not sure - but Gary asked to do it this time - so that will be his job.

解题思路：So I’d just like to go through who’s doing what when the guests arrive. 提示下文即将讨论负责提供不同服务的人员，定位到If I remember correctly, it was Olav who coordinated the task of providing the guests with drinks or was it Ahmed? Um, I'm not sure - but Gary asked to do it this time - so that will be his job，注意Olay和Ahmed两个名字的出现都是干扰选项，可以先把这两个名字写下来，但同时一定要听讲话者把话说完;offer 是对provide的同义转述，注意名字首字母大写。

Question 16

答案：E

定位原文：And Monica, last time this was your responsibility.

解题思路：Now - for receiving the guests' coats and hats, 提示下文即将讨论谁来帮客人拿大衣和帽子，定位到And Monica, last time this was your responsibility. 注意在这句话之后出现了一个干扰答案，Susan, I know you wanted to do this but as the numbers are quite high for this event I won't make a change here. 在听的过程中可以把Monica和Susan 两个名字都写下来，在听到 “I won’t make a change here”的时候，即可以确定正确答案是Monica，删掉Susan。take guests’ coats and hats和receiving the guests’ coats and hats是同样的意思。

Question 17

答案：A

定位原文：So Ahmed and Olav -I believe you discussed the problems with Susan and thought she would be good at guiding guests after they had arrived

解题思路：now last time there was some confusion as to where guests were supposed to go，提示下文将讨论由谁来带领客人。定位到So Ahmed and Olav -… after they had arrived。注意此句前的一句话once they had deposited their things and we had guests roaming around the whole hotel (在客人们存放好个人物品后，我们有客人在整个宾馆里瞎逛) 是提出了没有人带领的情况下，客人们的困扰，deposit，“存放”，roam around，“散步，闲逛”。所以discussed the problem with Susan所指的problems就是上句提到的这个问题。show guests to where to go是对guiding guests after arrived的同义转述。

Question 18

答案： ring a bell

定位原文：I will ring a bell so that everyone knows it's time to eat.

解题思路：we need to get them to move to the restaurant for their meal，即提示下文将讨论为了把客人转移到饭馆，宾馆负责人会做什么。定位到I will ring a bell so that everyone knows it's time to eat，注意so that和in order to是同义词组，表示“为了…”。

Question 19

答案：lounge

定位原文：As they'll be spending quite a while in the lounge, I’ve decided to also put a plan there.

解题思路：There'll be a plan on each table and I've been thinking about where to put the master plan so everyone can view it before they enter the restaurant. 提示下文即将讨论座位安排的另一个位置，定位到As they'll be spending quite a while in the lounge, I’ve decided to also put a plan there. 注意As引导的是原因状语从句，正确答案在从句中出现，而后面的主句才出现“我决定把作为安排放在那儿(lounge)”，所以一定要在提示句出现后就开始认真听和做笔记。lounge，“休息室”。

Question 20

答案：speeches/speakers

定位原文：So when the speeches start all activity must stop in the restaurant so that the three people giving them can be heard.

解题思路：The organiser of the event will be saying a few words and so will two of his colleagues，此处已经提到了3个人，所以已经可以初步判断是3个speakers，提示下文将会有较具体地解释。定位到So when the speeches start all activity must stop in the restaurant so that the three people giving them can be heard. 注意3 people不是正确答案，必须精确到3 speakers或者3 speeches才算正确。
