1) What did Claire like about the play?
1. the conversation
2. the set and costumes
3. the plot
2) Vincent thinks the plot is…
3. well developed
3) What was Claire surprised by?
1. how the play ended
2. how good the lead actress was
3. how slow-paced the story was
4) What type of play did they see?
1. an old classic
2. a comedy
3. a tragedy
1) – 2
2) – 2
3) – 1
4) – 3
Claire: Oh. I’m glad that’s over. It honestly wasn’t my kind of thing. All that melodrama and boring dining table conversation.
Vincent: Really? You must have completely different taste from me. It had me on the edge of my seat.
Claire: Look, the set and costumes were amazing, I’ll give you that. It really transported you back into the 19th century. But the plot was awfully predictable.
Vincent: Oh come on! The story had some very unexpected twists and turns. I thought the lead actress… What’s her name – Vera Styles, is very talented, too. You could see she had really immersed herself in the part and her character was well developed. I think the director did a fine job.
Claire: You’re right about the lead actress: she played her part very well. But that’s about all you can say. The story was just so slow-paced. It was enough to make you fall asleep at some parts.
Vincent: Well, I’d have to disagree with you. And I thought the ending was a great surprise, when the real murderer was revealed.
Claire: Yes, I suppose that was a bit of a surprise ….
Vincent: Besides, it was also about the characters and what they felt. A play wasn’t just about the story, you know…
Claire: That’s just the point. I found it much too sentimental and corny. When I go to the theatre I want to have a good laugh. Perhaps I just don’t get these tragedies.
Vincent: Well, I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it. Next time let’s try a comedy.
Claire: Yeah, you know we both get on better with those!
Vincent: Ok, The 39 Steps is playing at the Windmill Theatre next month; it’s a comedy version of the old classic. Do you fancy going?
Claire: Definitely! That would be great. I always like remakes, and if it’s comedy, even better!
Vincent: Right. I’ll book tickets, then.

Sharon: So, have you met the new neighbours yet?
Ryan: Yes, I met them last night. They seem friendly enough.
Sharon: Have you met their eldest son? His name’s Derek.
Ryan: No, I haven’t. What’s he like?
Sharon: Well. I only met him briefly. He was very pleasant – even offered to drive me home with my groceries.
Ryan: That was very polite. We could do with a few decent neighbours.
Sharon: Yeah, not like that grumpy Mr Bryant next door. He’s so rude.
Ryan: Anyway you didn’t tell me much about Derek, only that he’s pleasant …
Sharon: Yes, and he had such a great sense of humour. I’ve invited him to our bowling night on Friday, if that’s OK with you.
Ryan: Yes, sure. We could do with some extra talent on our team, we haven’t won a game for a month.
Sharon: I know. Tony does his best… But honestly, he can’t get the ball to roll straight, let alone knock the pins down!
Ryan: Mmm.. Our problem started when Andy left the team.
Sharon: Yes, it’s a shame he had to move away. The Northampton team are very lucky to have him.
Ryan: True. Our loss is their gain, as they say. Has Derek ever been bowling before, by the way?
Sharon: As a matter of fact he used to bowl for another team in Nottingham where he lived. Apparently he’s very good.
Ryan: Really? How do you know?
Sharon: There’s a girl at work who’s from Nottingham. She’s seen Derek play there.
Ryan: A star player at last! So we stand a chance of actually getting a good score. I wonder if he’s as good as Andy!
Sharon: Let’s hope so. Do you know which team we’re playing on Friday night?
Ryan: No, but we got the programme here. Let’s have a look. It’s the Nottingham All Stars.
Sharon: What? That might be Derek’s old team. Let’s go and ask him.

Sheila: Hello, Paul, I haven’t seen you for ages. Nothing much, actually …
Paul: Me neither. Too busy studying for exams.
Sheila: Yeah, thank goodness they’re over at the end of this week!
Paul: If you’re interested, there’s a good film on at The Rex on Saturday. Do you fancy going?
Sheila: Sorry. Paul, but I’ll be busy then. I’m going on a fun run.
Paul: A fun run? What’s that?
Sheila: You know, it’s a race to raise money for a good cause.
Paul: I see. Who are you going with?
Sheila: Actually, my school is organising it. Quite a few of my classmates are taking part. Why don’t you come along?
Paul: Well, that depends. How long is it?
Sheila: Only 5 kilometres. You don’t need to be a professional athlete, just be reasonably fit, if you feel tired you can stop for a rest.
Paul: Well, that’s a relief! You know I’m not that good at running. What’s the charity for?
Sheila: We’re соllecting money for an African wild animal fund.
Paul: Oh, right. Our school has been collecting for ‘Save the Dolphin’. We didn’t think of a fun run, though.
Sheila: So. Are you coming on Saturday, then?
Paul: Count me in!
Sheila: OK, see you at the school at 9 o’clock sharp.
Paul: If it’s that early, we could still go to the Rex, couldn’t we?
Sheila: That depends on how exhausted you’ll be in the evening!
Paul: OK, we’ll see how we feel. What shall I wear, by the way, shorts and a T shirt?
Sheila: Yes. And there’s a prize of a new pair of trainers for the runner with the coolest T-shirt.
Paul: Great! My T-shirt with the gorilla on the front will be just the thing!
Sheila: Don’t forget to wear a sweatband, it gets pretty hot when you’re running and you don’t want the sweat dropping into your eyes.
Paul: Sheila, you think of everything.. But I haven’t got a sweatband.
Sheila: I’m sure I can find you one of mine – I might even have one with giraffes on it to go with your T-shirt.

3) – 3
4) – 2
5) – 2
6) – 2
Doctor: Well…, you’re Jennifer Black, aren’t you? The sixth form?
Jennifer: Yes, Doctor, it’s me.
Doctor: Your teacher said you suddenly fell ill in the PE lesson. What exactly happened?
Jennifer: To tell the truth, I’ve been feeling unwell all morning. When I tried to get up I felt very weak and stayed in bed for an extra fifteen minutes to cope with the weakness and the pain in my stomach. I was nearly late for the first class because of that.
Doctor: OK, but during the PE class… did you do any tiring exercises? Too much running or any difficult exercises?
Jennifer: No, not really! We did some aerobics and played volleyball. I felt sick during the game and nearly fainted. .
Doctor: OK, let me take your blood pressure. … Well, it could be higher… You are feeling weak because of a drop in your blood pressure. Don’t worry — it can be easily raised with a cup of strong sweet tea. What did you have for breakfast, Jenny?
Jennifer: I didn’t have any breakfast actually.
Doctor: Was it because you were going to be late for school? Did you skip breakfast as you didn’t have time for it?
Jennifer: No, it’s not that. I don’t normally eat breakfast because I want to lose weight. I want to be slimmer.
Doctor: Yes, I see. Can you describe in detail what you usually eat during the day? How many meals do you have? Lunch? Dinner? Supper?
Jennifer: One. At about 4 o’clock… I don’t know what to call it. I have a glass of juice and some salad, and a yogurt. Sometimes I skip the yogurt.
Doctor: Look here, Jenny, can’t you understand that you are ruining your body? This dieting will end up in an eating disorder, which will cause serious stomachaches, which you mentioned you’ve already been having, heart problems, kidney problems… You may become an easy target for any infection or disease. For now, I strongly recommend the medical examination called endoscopy. You’ll swallow a small flexible camera, so we will be able to see your stomach from inside.
Doctor: We’ll have to, unfortunately. I’ll call the hospital and make an appointment for you. And I’ll let you know about the exact date and time tomorrow, OK?
Jennifer: OK. Will you call me?
Doctor: It would be better if you drop in. I want to check your blood pressure just to be sure. And now we are going to design your new diet. You must follow it.

4) – 1
5) – 2
6) – 3
Sally: Are you OK, Zach? Hey, Zach!
Zach: Oh, it’s you, Sally. I was daydreaming.
Sally: You were sleeping, not daydreaming! Did you play computer games all night again?
Zach: Yes, how did you guess?
Sally: That’s easy. Your eyes are red, your reactions are slow, and you look sleepy! And your homework isn’t done.
Zach: OK, you’re right. Just a new game. I couldn’t quit before I reached the fifth level. You wouldn’t understand as you don’t care about computers.
Sally: Why, I do, but I’m not a geek. I have more important things to do than play games for hours.
Zach: Really? And what are you busy with all day long?
Sally: Well, I start with walking my dog. At 8 o’clock sharp I have to be at the picking up point for the school bus. Mum used to drive me to school, but now she’s very busy with my little brother, so I have to go by bus.
Zach: I see. Babies are always trouble.
Sally: No, not at all! He’s a little darling and I love him! Twice a week, when I don’t take my music lessons, I babysit for my mum so that she can read the economic news . She’s got a university degree and worked for a financial firm but she had to quit it because of my. brother’s poor health. She’s planning to go back to her career and has to be well informed about everything.
Zach: Yeah, that’s important to stay in the profession. And it’s nice of you to help her so much. But how do you manage to do your own lessons then?
Sally: The main thing is not to put off the assignments till the very last moment.
Zach: I always put them off…
Sally: And it’s important to start with the most difficult subjects — I always do Maths first. Languages and other humanities are easier so French goes the last.
Zach: I see. I find Maths the most difficult, too. And I’m really impressed with your ability to plan your day and stick to the plan. I never do anything on time… I even had to give up my guitar lessons… Do you play an instrument?
Sally: The drums. Mum wanted me to choose the piano, but I think drums are cooler.
Zach: They certainly are. There’re lots of people who play the piano but very few drummers. By the way, my friends are looking for a drummer for their band. Are you interested?
Sally: Well…, yes. What sort of music do they play?
Sally: I see. I prefer pop music too. We learn about other music styles in music classes, like jazz, rock and classical, but you can’t dance to them.
Zach: True. I can introduce you to the guys. You’ll really need my recommendation as no girl’s ever played with them. It’s always been an all-boy pop band.
Sally: It won’t be any more.
Zach: We’ll see.

Passenger: Hey, I prefer missing my flight to having a traffic accident.
Driver: Don’t worry, we aren’t exceeding the speed limit. It’s a highway.
Passenger: Slow down anyway, will you? I feel nervous every time I take a taxi here.
Driver: You’re from Europe, aren’t you?
Passenger: Yes, how do you know?
Driver: Europeans often feel like that on Australian roads. It’s because we drive on the left and you drive on the right. Americans take it easier though they, like you, have right-hand traffic.
Passenger: You are probably right. The left-hand traffic makes me feel strange.
Driver: Do you drive at home?
Passenger: No. Not now. I used to drive a lot when we lived in the countryside and I had to commute to the city. But I sold my car when we moved to the city centre. It caused lots of problems.
Driver: What kind of problems? Did it break down too often?
Passenger: No. It was a nice car, but it was difficult to find a parking place in the city. And the traffic jams! I was often late for work.
Driver: I see. The Underground is more reliable.
Passenger: Exactly. Once I was late for a job interview because of a traffic jam. It was a dream job with a large construction firm. I didn’t get it.
Driver: Sorry to hear that. Are you an engineer or a manager?
Passenger: Neither. I design and plan buildings.
Passenger: Yes, and several buildings I designed have already been constructed! I’ve got the photos in my internet portfolio.
Driver: Sounds impressive. You could find a good job here I think. The construction sector is booming at the moment — we are building houses, and supermarkets, and new hotels…
Passenger: Thank you but… not now. I’ve just taken a new job and I really enjoy it. The money is good too so I don’t feel like changing anything. The job also allows me to travel a lot.
Driver: So, are you here on business?
Passenger: No, for a seaside holiday. A friend of mine suggested coming here and I don’t regret it — the beaches are beautiful! I haven’t seen much of the rest of the countryside — next time, probably.
Passenger: Oh, gosh! I haven’t even bought any souvenirs for my parents. Do you think I can buy anything in a duty-free shop?
Driver: If you want to buy something made by local people, like paintings, pottery or wooden souvenirs, there’s a shop right on the way to the airport. We can stop there if you want.
Passenger: Yes, I do! My mother loves authentic artwork. And due to your incredibly fast driving I’ve got about half an hour before the flight.

4) – 1
5) – 1
6) – 3
Security: Morning. I’m Thomas Richardson, the sports centre security. The lady at the reception said that your iPod’s missing.
Jackie: Yes, that’s right.
Security: Can I ask you a few questions?
Jackie: Sure. Go ahead.
Security: Your name is…?
Jackie: Jackie Lee.
Security: OK, Jackie, do you often visit our sports centre?
Jackie: Yes. My parents brought me to the centre three years ago and signed me up for the gym classes. Since then I’ve been coming here every Tuesday and Thursday and I never miss classes as the coach says that it’s very important… not to miss…
Security: Right, but there are no morning gym classes today.
Jackie: Sometimes I come to the swimming pool, too. It doesn’t happen very often — only when I have the time. Today is such a day — I have a morning off, so I decided to have a swim.
Security: Is it possible that you’ve forgotten your iPod somewhere in the centre? In the coffee bar or in the gym?
Jackie: No. I didn’t use them today. I came to the centre quite early, bought a ticket to the swimming pool at the reception and went straight to the changing room and then to the pool. I haven’t been either to the gym or to the bar. I left my iPod in the locker in the changing room but when I came back, it wasn’t there.
Security: I see. Frankly speaking, I can’t remember our visitors ever reporting stolen valuables; they often lose things, which are usually found and brought to the reception. However, this incident looks like a crime and we’ll have to call the police I’m afraid.
Jackie: Looks like that.
Security: There’s a special safe at the reception by the way. We strongly recommend that our visitors keep valuables and mopey there. The safe is free and available for all our visitors…
Jackie: Yes, I know about the safe, but neither my friends nor I ever use it. Maybe it’s a bit careless but we’ve always left money, watches and phones in the changing rooms — nothing has ever happened.
Security: I’m calling the police.
Jackie: No, wait a moment. I think I can hear my iPod. It sounds like its in the locker. Oh goodness, it’s here in my boot. I put it inside the boot to not forget it.
Security: Fine. I’m glad you’ve found it.
Jackie: I’m really so sorry for all this trouble. My mum’s right — I’m hopelessly absent-minded.
Security: It’s OK.

Philip: Hello, Amy! Enjoy your tea!
Amy: Hi, Philip. Leaving so early? It’s Sunday today — no classes as far as I know.
Philip: That’s right. I want to take advantage of that and explore your town.
Amy: Very sensible of you. It’s a nice place.
Philip: You can probably recommend something to me? I haven’t been anywhere yet except the library. If you aren’t busy now…
Amy: No, not at all. Sit down and help yourself to tea and biscuits. Some milk and cornflakes?
Philip: No, thank you, Amy. I’ll just have some tea and a sandwich.
Amy: OK, as you wish. I believe the first thing you should do today is go to the beach.
Philip: The beach?
Amy: Yes. Beaches are not only good in hot weather. Our beach is amazing in this season. Just sit down on the rocks and watch the sea — I promise you’ll enjoy it.
Philip: OK, I’ll do it.
Amy: Then go to the old chapel in the Sea Park. It’s very old and beautiful inside. You can’t take photos there but if you see the priest Father Matthew, ask him to show you around the chapel.
Philip: The priest?
Amy: Yes. He’s a nice man and believe me, he does it better than professional guides. Philip: OK, I’ll follow your advice. And how can I get to the centre of the town after that?
Amy: The best way to get around the town is by bicycle.
Philip: Is it?
Amy: Yes. There are buses, but the interval between buses is at least thirty minutes… Taxis are not allowed in the historical centre, and they are very expensive.
Philip: But I don’t have a bicycle here.
Amy: You don’t need to own it. There are lots of points where you can rent one very cheaply. The cycle routes are everywhere — we often go shopping by bicycle.
Philip: Your town authorities seem to care about the environment…
Amy: Yes, they do. The new mayor, who was elected two years ago, has done a lot to improve our life here. Cultural events have become more frequent and our streets and parks are kept nice and clean. People spend more time out-of-doors now.
Philip: That’s really good.
Amy: Yes. In the evening we don’t watch TV anymore but go to the parks where everyone can find something for themselves — jogging, chess, volleyball — or just walking and talking. Oh, that reminds me. Can you do me a favour, Phil?
Philip: Whatever you want.
Amy: Can you take my mobile to the service centre? It’s in the High Street, in the shopping centre.
Philip: Sure. No problem.
