广东省在今年的NMET中增加了听力测试，但今年成绩不计入总分，仅作参考。98年以10％计入总分，99年 以20％计入总分。今年广东省英语高考时间是2小时30分，听力在NMET笔试前进行，共30分钟。 听力测试结束 后发笔试试卷，考生继续进行笔试。
听力试题由四段简单的对话和两段短文组成，共809个单词， 要求考生根据听到的内容回答试卷上的问题 。每一段文字读两遍，每个问题给考生25秒钟时间回答，录音速度适中，考生能够适应。
整个试卷的题目安排体现了从易到难，循序渐进的原则。对话和短文，对话在前，因为对话更接近生活， 句子结构和用词相对容易。在对话中，第一段和第四段对话之间又呈梯形排列。第一段对话的内容、长度和要 求回答问题的难度都不及第四段对话。
短文要求考生能听懂一段连贯的表达，其内容和现实生活相关，但语言结构和词汇比对话稍难。其中第五 段短文共有258 个词汇，占听力试卷词汇量的四分之一；第六段短文接近于新闻稿。
国家教委在广东进行加试听力的试验，其目的就是对高考进行改革，使高考能更好地反作用于中学英语教 学，更有利于大学选拔人才，逐步解决我国英语教学耗时长，效率低的现状。今年高考结束后，教师们普遍反 映，听力试题的命题是成功的。成功之处就在于命题者能依据当代应用语言学的研究成果，着眼于高考命题的 整体改革，把测试考生语言运用能力作为测试的目标，没有在辨音、辨句或简单的交际问答里兜圈子（这是学 生在学习英语的起始阶段应解决的问题）；而是围绕培养学生在听的过程中获取信息的能力设置试题。命题者 选择了听觉输入最常见的两种形式：对话和叙述；并围绕日常话题（如学习，求助等），使内容贴近考生生活 实际。这样做既符合中学英语教学大纲的要求，也符合社会生活和继续学习对考生英语听能的要求。
试题提示我们，中学英语教学一定要在培养学生运用英语的能力上下功夫，英语教学既要给学生讲必要的 语言知识，更要强调培养学生用英语进行交际的能力。交际能力并不仅限于听说能力（目前中学英语界的一个 认识误区就是“交际能力＝听说能力”），它也包括读写能力。
试题也提示我们，高考英语试题和英语的各类水平测试都要进行改革。高考是教学的“指挥棒”。它对中 学英语教学的反拨作用目前还没有别的'手段可以代替。高考增加了听力测试，部分省市的高中毕业会考增加了 听力测试，全国各地的中考都增加了听力测试，这是中学英语考试改革的重要一步。我们认为，在有听力测试 的情况下，原来流行的书面考查语音的试题已无继续的必要。在教学中，我们应该要求学生注意发音，但通过 大量的书面试题测试语音并不能解决学生的语音问题；以前这样做是为了引导教师注意语音和口语教学。
广东省报考外语专业的考生要参加NMET复试。其他省市称这种复试为口试。复试内容包括听力测试（占55 ％），语言测试（占15％）和口试（占30％）；也就是说，报考外语专业的考生参加NMET97听力测试后，还要 参加NMET97复试的听力测试。
1.听力：听力有三道大题。第一大题是听力理解。题型和NMET听力试题一样，由六段对话和讲话组成，共 20个问题，涉及购机票，地铁经历，太空旅行，求职，妇女地位等内容。每段对话或讲话仅播一遍，每小题答 题时间为20秒，语速较快。
第二大题是语音听辨。其中第1小题是辨音， 要求考生从所给四个不同的单词或虚构单词中，选出听到的 那一个，念一遍，每小题答题时间为10秒。第2小题是辨词组， 要求考生从所给四个不同的短语中选出听到的 那一个，念一遍，每小题答题时间为12秒。
下面你可以听到五组小对话，试卷上印出了每组对话中的第二句原话，后跟A，B，C，D四个句子，请注意 听对话的重音，并据此指出A，B，C，D四个句中哪个在意思上与原句最接近。每组对话念一遍， 每题给15秒钟 回答时间。

I had to feed themevery morning and t hen I had to walk to school with my littlesister. It was two miles to school and two miles back
in theevening. But it always seemed longer in the morning when wewere going to school. Th ere was a bus, but we didn't have themoney. And we had to go to bed at seven o'clock every nig ht.We couldn't watch TV because there wasn't any. On Sundays wehad to go to church three times
— morning, afternoon andevening. And we couldn't play ourside on Sundays. But itwas n't all bad. We had some good times. We could go out andour parents didn't have to worry abou t us. There weren't somany cars on the roads then, so the streets were safe to playin. And t here were not many robbers and thieves in those days. We had to work hard and we weren't able t o buy all thosethings in the shops today. Life was hard, but it was simpleand people were happier. I don't think I like to be youngtoday.
