  【英语四级听力材料】

  For twenty-five years, I was a full-time thief, specializing in picking pockets. Where I come from in southeast London, that's an honorable profession. [32]Anyone can break in a house and steal things, but picking somebody's pocket takes skill. My sister and I were among the most successful pickpocket teams in London. We worked in hotel and theatre lobbies, airports, shopping centers and restaurants. Now we don't steal any more, but this crime is worldwide. Here's how to protect yourself. Professional pickpockets do not see victims-only handbags, jewels and money. [33]Mothers with babies, the elderly, and the disabled are all fair game. My preferred target was the lone female, handbag at her side-the right side to be exact. So if I'm next to her, I can reach it cautiously with my right hand across my body. Only about one woman in a thousand carries her bag on the left, and I tended to steer clear of them. Women whose bags are hanging in front of them are tricky for the pickpocket as there isn't a blind side. If you want to make it even harder, use a bag with handles rather than a strap. [34]For men, one of the best places to keep a wallet is in the back pocket of tight trousers.You'll feel any attempts to move it. Another good place is in the buttoned-up inside pocket of a jacket. There is just no way in. Even better, keep wallets attached to a cord or chain that is fastened to a belt. [35]A pickpocket needs targets who are relaxed and off-guard. The perfect setting is a clothing store. When customers wander among the racks they are completely absorbed in the items they hold up. The presence of a uniformed security guard is even better. A false sense of security makes a pickpocket's job much simpler.

  Questions 32 to 35 are based on the passage you have just heard.

  32. Why does the speaker say that picking somebody's pocket is an honorable profession in southeast London?

  正确答案:A

  解析:题目询问为什么作者说在伦敦东南部,扒窃是一个光荣的职业。关键是要听到an honorable profession之后的那句话:“任何人都可以闯入一栋住宅偷东西,但是扒窃需要技术。”故答案为A。符合“听到什么选什么的”原则。

  33. According to the speaker, who is most likely to become a victim of pickpockets?

  正确答案:C

  解析:题目询问根据作者所说,谁最有可能成为扒手的猎物。关键是要听到“带着婴儿的妈妈,上了年纪的人和残疾人都是可以下手的对象。我更喜欢的目标是没有人陪伴的女性,手提包挎在侧面——确切地说,是挎在右侧。”这两句话说明了什么样的人可能成为扒手的目标,而第2句中的“preferred更喜欢的”说明是最有可能的,故选C。

  34. In the speaker's opinion, what's the best place for a man to keep his wallet?

  正确答案:A

  解析:题目询问根据作者的看法,男人放钱包的最佳位置是哪里。关键是要听到“对于男人来说,紧身长裤后面的口袋是放钱包的最佳位置之一。”故答案为A。作者说放钱包的另一个好地方是上衣里面的口袋,而不是B(上衣顶部的口袋);C、D在文中均未提及。

  35. What is the perfect setting for picking pockets according to the speaker?

  正确答案:B

  解析:题目询问根据作者所说,扒窃的最佳地点是哪里。关键是要听到“一个扒手需要发现放松并且毫无警惕的目标。最佳地点是服装店。”故选B。
