这篇听力是我听过最难的。不仅仅是语速快,而且还有非常多的改写+高阶词汇。

Welcome to the podcast about the Sheepmarket, which is one of the oldest parts of the city.

As its name suggested, there was originally a market here where a farmers brought their sheep, but now it’s been redeveloped into a buzzing, vibrant area of the city, which is also home to one of the city’s fastest-growing communities.

The nearby university has always meant the area’s popular with students, who come into enjoy the lively nightlife.

But now graduates embarking on careers in the worlds fashion and design are buying up the new apartments recently built here to replace small houses where the market workers used to live.

The now old side streets are great places for finding a original pictures, jewellery and ceramics which won’t break the bank, as well as local produce like fruit and vegetables.

There’s also lots of pavement cafes where you can have a coffee and watch tourists from all over the world go back.

The oldest building in the area of are on the main streets, including the city first department store, built in 1880s which is still open today.

The Sheepmarket is centre for fashion and there’s a policy encouraging new young designers.

The young fashion competition is open to local young people who are passion about fashion.

This year they’be been asked to design an outfit based on ideas from the music and technology that’s part of their everyday life, using mature and man-made fibres.

The garments will be judged by a panel of experts and fashion designers, and winning entries will be modelled at a special gala evening.

Parking at the Sheepmarket is easy.

They are plenty of pay and display car parking spaces on the roadsides which are fine if you just want to stay for an hour or two, but if you want to spend the day there it is better to park one of the four underground car parks.

It is not expensive, and if you can present a receipt from one of the local stores, you will not be charged at all.

After 6 p.m. many of the car parks have flat rate which varies but it’s usually very reasonable.

The Sheepmarket is one of the main centres of arts and history in the whole of the country.

If you look at the map you will see some of the main attractions there, most visitors start from the Crawley Road, at the bottom of the map.

The Reynolds House is one of oldest houses in the city, and is opened to the public.

It’s on the north side of the Crawley Road, next to the footpath and leads to the public gardens.

The area‘s particularly interesting for it’s unusual sculptures.

The thumb is just what its name suggests, but it’s about 10 metres high.

You’ll see it on the Hill road and cross the road from the bank.

The Museum’s got a particularly fine collection of New Zealand landscapes.

It’s on the east side of the Sheepmarket on City Road.

It’s on the other side of road from the public gardens immediately facing the junction with Hill Road.

The Contemporary Art Gallery is on a little road that leads off Station Square, not far from the public gardens. The road ends in the gallery, it doesn’t go anywhere else.

That ‘s open everyday except Mondays.

The Warner Gallery specialises in 19th-century art.

It’s on the City Road near the junction with Crawley road, on the same side of road as the public gardens.

It’s open on the weekday from 9 to 5 and entry is free.

Finally, if you’re interesting in purchasing high quality artwork, the place to go is Nucleus.

You need to go from the Crawley road up through Station Square and east along the hill road until you get to a small winding road turning off.

Go up there and it’s on your right. if you get to the city road, you’ve gone too far.
