Speaker A: Sitting around drinking coffee has never been one of my favourite things to do, but I do love playing games, and so do some of my mates. So were decided to meet at weekends and do that in a cafe. The place we go to has got a lot of fun things to choose from, and sometimes we bring our own. It’s a nice quiet and relaxed place, and never too busy, so we like it.

Speaker B: I work in an advertising agency and creativity is a focus. I meet with clients in our offices quite often, but more and more I’ve started asking them to meet me at a cafe down the street from our building. The atmosphere and decor are really arty, and the clients tend to feel a bit more relaxed when we meet there. I think both myself and my clients can come up with more interesting ideas for campaigns while were there.

Speaker С: Cafés have almost become like living rooms. It reminds me of that TV series Friends, where they drink coffee on a big sofa as if they’re at home. In fact, a lot of cafes have put televisions up on the wall. It’s usually just in the background, so it doesn’t steal your attention. It’s not to everyone’s taste, but I think it’s nice to look up occasionally and see a bit of current affairs or a sporting event.

Speaker D: For those of us who like to spend hours with a good book, a cafe is an excellent place to do it. That is, of course, if it’s not one with loud music, big-screen TVs and loads of noisy people. There are quite of few of those in my area, and they’re obviously not interested in keeping my business. That’s OK; I’ve got at least two or three to choose from that cater to bookworms like myself.

Speaker E: I think there are more cafes in my town than people! That’s what life is like in the Mediterranean. The weathers nice most of the year, and it’s great to sit outside, catch up on everyone’s news and, of course, do people-watching. The best places to do that are in sightseeing areas, with lots of people walking up and down the pavement, looking at the sights and enjoying the day. You see all walks of life in these places.

Speaker F: There are lots of different cafés in my town. A surprising number, in fact. To be honest, I don’t know how they all stay in business. A few of them have really bad interiors – bright fluorescent lighting, tacky furniture, even cracked plates. I hardly ever see anyone in them either. In my opinion, the look and feel of a café is the most important thing. Otherwise, it’s not going to be successful.

Macy: Hey Ryan, what did you think of our class lesson about recycling?

Ryan: It was very informative. We do recycling at home, but we don’t do all the things Mr Singh mentioned, such as rinsing bottles and containers out before you put them in the recycling, or keeping bins far recycling in other parts of the house. Do you, Macy?

Macy: We only have one recycling bin in the house, in the kitchen. We’ve got small rubbish bins in other rooms, such as the living room and our bedrooms. I put lots of things in the rubbish bin in my bedroom that could be recycled though.

Ryan: Our house is similar. We’ve got one recycling bin in the kitchen that we mainly use, although my dad’s got a bin in his office that he puts his papers into. Funny though, he rarely empties it!

Macy: The rubbish bin in my bedroom is full of mostly recyclable things, so I felt a bit bad about that. I took all of it to the kitchen straight away.

Ryan: That’s good of you.

Macy: I’ve decided that from now on I’m only going to pul recyclable materials in the bin in my bedroom , just old homework papers I don’t need or cardboard packaging. No more banana skins!

Ryan: We’re not allowed to eat in our bedrooms. Mum hates the mess we leave.

Macy: I guess I’ve just been too lazy to take things into the kitchen. That’s going to change now!

Ryan: I didn’t realise how rinsing things helped. I didn’t know they have to rinse things out at the recycling plant before they can recycle it. We’ll save them time if we do it, which makes their job easier.

Macy: Yes, that’s a good idea. The only problem is we have to use our water to do it. Some things take a lot of rinsing. But really, it does make the recycling bin cleaner.

Ryan: I know what you mean. We empty ours when it gets full, but sometimes it takes a while for that to happen. It’s large, and we don’t empty it as often as the rubbish bin. So it’s better hygiene if those jars and plastic containers are well rinsed.

Macy: Exactly. Well, these are good changes to make round the house.

Ryan: I agree. They’re useful and easy to do, too! See you later, Macy!

Presenter: Hi everyone and welcome to our programme, Youth Talk. Today our guest is careers advisor Martin Shaw, who’s going to discuss how he helps students find a career and a job. Thanks for joining us, Mr Shaw.

Speaker: I’m glad to be here. Please, call me Martin.

Presenter: Tell us what you do in your job, Martin.

Speaker: Well, I work for a university in their careers advice office. I meet with university students on a daily basis. Students make an appointment with me, which is free of charge and included in their student services package. I see about ten to twelve students a day, and we meet for around twenty minutes to half an hour.

Presenter: How do you help them find a career?

Speaker: For starters, I administer a questionnaire which determines their aptitudes. It asks them what skills they think they have, and it also asks them about their likes and dislikes, how well they get on with others, whether they like to work independently, and whether they’re self-motivated, highly organised, or very creative. They answer the questionnaire and I assess it at a later date.

Presenter: How do you assess the information they present to you?

Speaker: First I look at what subjects they’ve put down that seem to interest them the most. Keep in mind that sometimes they don’t know exactly what those are, so they might put down a wide range. Then, I take a look at their skills. If, for example, they’re interested in the arts, are highly creative and communicative, and like working with people, I might suggest a career in advertising.

Presenter: So you meet with students more than once, yes?

Speaker: Oh definitely. Firstly, I have to give them the results of their questionnaire, but really, I meet with them as often as they like. The goal is to get them on the right track. Sometimes a student comes back to me because they have second thoughts about their preferences, meaning they’ve realised they’d rather work alone than with other people, for example. That will obviously affect the advice I give them.

Presenter: I see. What other types of assistance do you give students?

Speaker: I help them with their CVs, to make sure they’re well-written and informative. I get them to bring a CV in at our first meeting, and I usually ask my assistant to look it over and make comments, which I review, Then I meet with the student again, usually when I give them their questionnaire results, and I give them some tips on how to improve their CV.

Presenter: Do you discuss interview techniques?

Speaker: I usually give them some information about the dos and don’ts of interviewing, and we discuss any questions they have. I’d like to do practice interviewing, but we simply don’t have the time or resources for that, which is a shame because students would find it very useful. I give them advice on how to answer tougher interview questions though, such as when an interviewer asks you what your weaknesses are.

Presenter: And what do you say to that?

Speaker: Well, obviously in an interview you should be truthful, but you would never want to say, “I hate getting up in the morning.” While that may be a true weakness, you can just imagine how that would go down in an interview! I urge students to think of a weakness that can actually be a strength. You could say that you tend to spend too much time on organising, so you have to stop for a moment and prioritise duties. This sounds impressive in an interview.
