As more and more people lose their jobs, now is perhaps the time to consider the experience of unemployment. What are the first feelings? Well, losing a job, or not being able to find one, almost always brings unwelcome changes. As well as the loss of income, many people find the whole routine of their life is shattered, their contact with other people reduced, their ambitions halted and their identity as a worker removed.
At first there may be good feelings too-a new and better job is just around the corner-it's nice to be able to lie in bed in the morning or spend more time with the children; have more time to think. But, unless a better job does turn up, the chances are the days start getting longer and time becomes harder to fill. Many people pass through periods of difficulty in sleeping and eating. They feel irritable and depressed, often isolated and lonely.
Despite all these problems though, unemployment can be a chance for a fresh start. You can discover that it provides an opportunity to sort out or rethink what you want from life and how best you can get it. You can use the time to plan how to find a new job, learn a new skill, develop your hobbies or see if you can run your own business.
Questions 26 to 28 are based on the passage you have just heard.
26. What are the first feelings when one is jobless?
[A]解析：短文说：失去工作几乎总是会带来一些令人不快的变化。收入减少之外，许多人还发现整个生活常规全打乱了，与别人的接触减少，雄心受挫，还失去了工作者的身份。A正确。四个陈述句选项，各自的主语都不相同，选项的主要词汇也没有什么关联。由此可以推测的是，本题应该问细节而非主旨（主旨题各选项中的词语总会相互关联）。可以“听到什么选什么”。短文中的设问句What are the first feelings?之后出现了A中的原词，也属于在语义强调之处出题。
