Difficulty: 0

Test two

You will hear a number of different recordings and you will have to answer questions on what you hear

There will be time for you to read the instructions and questions and you will have a chance to check your work

all the recordings will be played once only

The test is in four sections

At the end of the test, you will be given 10 minutes to transfer your answers to an answer sheet

Now turn to section 1

Section 1

You will hear a student talking to the student accommodation officer at a college

First you have some time to look at questions 1 to 5

You will see that there is an example that has been done for you

on this occasion only the conversation relating to this will be played first

Good morning, can I help you?

Yes. I've just been accepted on a course at the University

and I'd like to try and arrange accommodation in the hall of residence

Yes, certainly

Please sit down

What I'll do is fit in a form with you to find out a little more about your preferences and so forth.

Thank you

The student wishes to arrange accommodation in a hall of residence

So hall has been written in the space

Now we shall begin

You should answer the questions as you listen, because you will not hear the recording a second time

Listen carefully and answer questions 1 to 5

Good morning, can I help you?

Yes. I've just been accepted on a course at the University

and I'd like to try and arrange accommodation in the hall of residence

Yes, certainly

Please sit down

What I'll do is fit in a form with you to find out a little more about your preferences and so forth.

Thank you

So first of all, can I take your name?

It's Anu Bhatt

Could you spell your name, please?

Yes A-N-U...B-H-A double T

Thanks, and could I ask your date of birth?

the 31st of March 1972

Thank you. And where are you from

India

Oh right, and what will you be studying?

I'm doing a course in nursing

Right, Thank you.

And how long would you want to stay in hall, do you think?

well, it'll take three years but I'd only like to stay in hall for two

I'd like to think about living outside for the third year

Fine. And what did you have in mind for catering?

Do you want to cook for yourself or have all your meals provided, that's full board?

Is there something in between?

Yes. You can just have evening meal provided which is half board.

That's what I'd prefer.

Yes, a lot of students opt for that.

Now, with that in mind, do you have any special diet, anything we should know about?

Yes, I don't take red meat.

No red meat

Before you hear the rest of the conversation you have some time to look at questions 6 to 10

Now listen and answer questions 6 to 10

Now thinking about the room itself, we have a number of options.

You can have a single study bedroom, or you can have a shared one. These are both what we call simple rooms.

The other alternative is to opt for a single bed set which actually has more space and better facilities.

There's about 20 pounds a week difference between them.

Well, actually my grant is quite generous and I think the bed seat sounds the best option.

Lovely, I'll put you down for that and we'll see what availability is like.

Now, can I ask some other personal details which we like to have on record?

Yes, of course

I wonder if you could let us know what your interests are.

This might help us get a closer match for placing you in a particular hall.

Uhmmm. Well, I love the theater

Right

And I enjoy sports, particularly badminton.

That's worth knowing.

Now, what we finish with on the form is really a list from you of what your priorities are in choosing a hall

and we'll do our best to take these into account

Well, the first thing is I'd prefer a hall where there are other mature students if possible.

Yes. We do have halls which tend to cater for slightly older student.

Ummm and I prefer to be out of town

That's actually very good for you because we tend to have more vacancies in out-of-town halls.

Lucky!

Yes. Anything else?

Well, I would like somewhere with a shared area, a TV room for example, or something like that.

It's a good way to socialize.

It certainly is.

That's it.

Now we just need a contact telephone number for you.

Sure. I'll just find it. It's double 67549.

Great, so we'll be in contact with you as soon as possible...

That is the end of section 1 you now have half a minute to check your answers

Now turn to section two
