So, tomorrow and Friday, we can expect more of this lovely hot weather, with bright sunshine and temperatures up to twenty four degrees, so don’t forget to wear sun cream! Saturday and Sunday will be cooler and cloudier, but it will stay dry without any rain, so you won’t need your umbrellas, and there might be a few sunny periods.

Man: You’re back! Did you have a nice holiday? Woman: Oh yes, it was wonderful! Man: You’re very brown! Did you do a lot of sunbathing? Woman: I was going to. I was so tired last week when I left. I planned to do nothing all week except lie in the sun and occasionally go for a swim in the sea. Man: Didn’t you then? Woman: No, I got bored! I actually went walking in the mountains. It was great. I saw some really lovely villages, lots of pretty flowers and some fantastic views of the sea and the beach. Man: Oh, it sounds wonderful!

Man: Have you seen my French book? Woman: It’s on the shelf isn’t it? I saw it next to the flowers. Man: It was there this morning, but it isn’t there now. Woman: Maybe you put it on your desk with all your other books. Man: I’ve looked there already. I can’t see it. Woman: What about in the cupboard next to the television? There are several books in there. Man: Hmm, it might be there. I’ll have a look. Oh, here it is! It was on the shelf all the time.

Man: Okay, what do we need? Woman: Well, we need some butter. Man: Do we? We already have some in the fridge. Woman: I don’t think it’s enough. We need three hundred grams but we only have about half a packet. Man: The recipe says we need four eggs. Woman: We’ve got plenty of eggs. Man: Alright. Are we okay for flour? Woman: I think so. There’s half a kilo in the cupboard and I think we only need two hundred grams of it. Man: Right then. I’ll go to the shop and get what we need.

Man: How is your son enjoying university? Woman: Well, not a lot. He’s finding the journalism course quite difficult. Man: Journalism? I thought he was studying law. Woman: He was, but he changed his course about three months ago. He didn’t like it. He had to do a lot of reading, and he soon realised that the other students on the course were a lot more hard-working than him! Man: Do you think he’ll stay on the course he’s doing now? Woman: I doubt it. Last time I spoke to him, he told me he’s thinking of becoming a mechanic!

Man: I think I’ll have a shower before we go out. Where’s the soap? Is it in the blue bag with the toothpaste? Woman: I’ll have a look. No, it’s not here. I’ve found the toothpaste, but there’s no soap. Man: Maybe I put it in the suitcase with the towel. Woman: Yes, it’s in here. Here you are. But there’s no towel in here. Man: Oh no, did I forget to bring it? Woman: It looks like it. You’ll have to use the hotel one. But perhaps you should buy a new one before we go to the beach.

Thanks for offering to pick up my brother from the station next Saturday. Let me describe him to you, because you may not recognise him now he has short hair! So, he’s got dark hair and glasses. He used to have a beard and a moustache, but he’s shaved them off now. I’ll tell him to wear a white shirt on the day he arrives. Then you’ll know who he is.

B1 Preliminary Listening, part 2 1. You will hear two friends talking about buying a new camera. Where does the woman recommend buying one? A From a website B From a mall C From a local shop Man: I want to buy a new digital camera in the sales. I’ve been reading some online reviews and I’m still not sure which one to get. Woman: That’s the problem with buying one from the Internet. You can’t try something out before you buy it. Perhaps you should go to a store. Man: Yes, it’d be good to get advice from a real salesperson. It’s a shame that the local shop has such a small range of cameras. There’s the mall, I suppose. Woman: Oh, no, I wouldn’t go there at this time of year. It’ll be very crowded. The shop down the road is a lot better than it used to be now there are new owners. You should give it a try. Man: Okay, I will. Thanks for your advice.

2. You will hear two friends talking about a film they have just seen. They agree that the film would be better if... A it had fewer special effects. B it was shorter. C the costumes were better. Man: That film was pretty good, I thought. I really liked the special effects. They looked real! Woman: I didn’t think so. Why didn’t they film those mountain scenes on real mountains? That would look so much better than computer effects. Man: I think computer effects can look better than real life, personally. The film did go on for a long time, though, didn’t it? Woman: Far too long in my opinion. I was ready to go after two hours. But the costumes were terrific. Man: They were. I don’t really notice that sort of thing when I watch a movie. I normally just concentrate on the story, but I noticed them in this film. They were incredible.

3. You will hear a man talking about a job he has just been offered. Why does he feel happy about it? A He has always wanted a job like this. B He will not have to travel far. C He will be able to learn new skills. Woman: Congratulations on your new job! Are you looking forward to starting? Man: I suppose so. I’m not expecting the job to be fascinating. I can’t say I’ve always dreamed of having this sort of job. Woman: Well, it should be more interesting than your last job at the printing factory. Man: Yes. It’s just a shame it isn’t as close by! Being home by half past four has been a luxury, and I’ve enjoyed walking to work too. Now I’ll be driving again. Woman: Do you think you will stay there long? Man: I’ll see. At the interview, the manager mentioned that I would be able to some more training on the job, and I’m looking forward to that opportunity. After that, I might be able to find work somewhere else. Woman: Well, good luck!

C go somewhere neare Man: I just received a message from Alice. She is running late. She says she won’t be here until half past one now. Woman: That’s annoying. If she arrives at one thirty, we won’t start the walk until two o’clock, and at four o’clock it will start to get dark. Man: And Alice is always half an hour later than she says. Why don’t we go for a walk near our house? Then we won’t waste time driving somewhere. Woman: I can walk around here at any time. I think if she isn’t here by two o’clock, we shouldn’t wait for her. It’s not fair for her to spoil our day. She can meet us there when she’s finally ready. Man: Perhaps you’re right. It’s hard to know what to do.

5. You will hear two people talking about local curry restaurant. They both agree that ... A the food is good quality. B the service was good. C the price was reasonable. Man: I went out to the new curry restaurant in town at the weekend. Woman: Oh, I went there last week. I was really impressed! I had a lamb curry and I think it was the best one I’ve ever tasted. Man: My chicken curry was delicious too. But it took ages to arrive. My wife’s meal arrived ten minutes before mine, and they didn’t even apologise! Woman: Really? Mine arrived quickly, and our waiter was friendly and efficient. And, considering the quality of the food, I didn’t think it was too expensive. Man: Well, I can name three curry restaurants near here that are cheaper where the food is just as good.

6. You will hear two people talking about climbing. The woman wants the man to ... A give her some climbing advice. B help her choose some climbing shoes. C work out with her. Woman: I enjoy climbing with you at the climbing wall, but I don’t seem to be getting any better, despite all the great advice you’ve been giving me. Man: Well, until you stop climbing in trainers, you will never get really good. Woman: I would appreciate your help choosing some proper shoes. I’ve been looking at some online, but there are so many, I don’t know where to start. Man: I can do that. You’d also really benefit from working out in the gym. You’re welcome to come along with me. I go a couple of times a week. Woman: I’m sure it would be good for me to work out more, but I honestly don’t have time these days.

Описание слайда:

The Motor Show will be returning to Eastbrook this July, and if you thought last year’s show was good, you’re going to love the show this year. It’s going to be bigger, there’ll be more things to do, and there will also be several famous faces around the place. It’ll be held on the 18th of July, and this year the Motor Show will not take place on the Park School Field like last year, but will take place on the Three Tree Show Ground. This will give a lot more space for car parking, which was a problem last year. There will be lots of great things to see and do. There’ll be a display of old cars and buses from as early as the 1920s, all in beautiful condition. There will also be a display of Cars of the Future – cars powered by electricity or the sun, so you’ll have the chance to see what we could all be driving in fifty years’ time. You will also have the chance to see some great people from the motor industry. Jack Tyler, famous presenter of the television show ‘Fast Driver’ will be signing copies of his new book, ‘Speed King.’ Top Racing Driver Michael Boreman will also be attending and giving out signed photographs. If you’re thinking that the Eastbrook Motor Show is just for men, and has nothing for the ladies, think again. There will be lots of stalls selling gifts, jewellery and clothes, and there is also the chance to win a beautiful sports car especially designed for female drivers. All you have to do is guess the number of bears in the car – I imagine that means toy bears not real bears! So you can’t miss that, can you? If you want to go to the Eastbrook Motor Show, tickets are twelve pounds for adults and six pounds for children, but you can get a family ticket for two adults and up to three children for thirty pounds. If you want to avoid queues on the day, you should buy your tickets in advance. You can get them from the Eastbrook village shop, or online on www.eastbrookmotorshow.co.uk. See you there! It’s going to be a great day!

Описание слайда:

1 This year, the course will run for... A six weeks. B seven weeks. C eight weeks. Man: We are lucky to have in the studio today, Molly Taylor. Molly is arranging an activity course for the summer holidays. Molly, this is the second year of the course, isn’t it? Molly: Yes, that’s right. The summer course operated for the first time last year for a six week period from the middle of July until the end of August, the length of the summer holidays. This year we’ll be holding the course again. We did think about making the course longer this year and have a seven week course, as there are some schools in the area which finish term a week earlier than other schools. In fact, the two private schools in the town have eight week summer holidays. But in the end we decided to keep to the same plan as last year. Man: But, as I understand, last year’s summer activity course was not a complete success, was it? Molly: Well, there were a few problems, yes. We were actually very surprised last year by the number of people interested in the course. We didn’t actually have enough staff to look after all the children who wanted to attend, and we had to turn people away. The weather also gave us some difficulties. There was such a lot of rain that we couldn’t go outside as often as we wanted to, but had prepared for that. We had art and music activities that the children could do indoors, so they weren’t left with nothing to do. Man: So, what activities can the children look forward to this year? Molly: Well, once again we there will be art and music experts coming in who will lead creative classes for the kids. We also considered providing some more exciting adventure sports like rock climbing and caving. We decided not to, in the end, because it would make the course a lot more expensive for parents. Instead, we’re introducing some fun projects – things that the kids can prepare together and show their parents what they have been doing. For example, we’re going to put on a talent show and organise an American Night. I think it will be good fun for the kids, and teach them good skills too. Man: It sounds fun. So, can children come on the course for the whole summer? Molly: Sure. Kids can come for the whole length of the course if they like. We’ve done our best to keep prices low so that it’s not too expensive for children to attend the course for as long as they want. There’ll be different things to do every week, so the kids won’t be repeating the same activities over and over again. However, I don’t expect many kids will come for the whole summer, as I’m sure they will all go away with their parents for a week or two. We do, however, ask that children attend full weeks, not just single days. It makes it easier for us to keep attendance records. Man: The course is currently available for children aged eight to thirteen. Why is that? Why don’t you allow older teenagers to come on your summer course? Molly: It’s true, there really should be something for teenagers to do in the summer holidays too. Few people organise activities for teenagers because they are seen as difficult to please. They think they aren’t interested in anything except computers and electronic games. I don’t think that’s true. I think they just don’t get the opportunity to do the creative things they used to do when they were children, like painting and team games. At the same time, I don’t think it’s fair to force teenagers to spend their summer holidays with eight year olds. They shouldn’t have to feel responsible for the little ones. They aren’t babysitters. In the future, when I have found the right staff, I’d like to organise a separate summer course for teens too. Man: So, if a child or a child’s parent is listening, and is interested in coming to your summer activity course, what should they do? Molly: They should go to my website, www.summeractivities.co.uk and print out an application form. Send it in with a deposit as soon as possible, because the places are going fast. You’ll need to tell us which weeks you are planning to attend straight away, but you won’t need to choose your activities in advance. You can choose what you want to do every Monday. We do need to know if the child has any special needs regarding their diet. Man: Thank you very much for coming to speak to us, Molly. I hope the summer course is a success!

There was such a lot of rain that we couldn’t go outside as often as we wanted to, but had prepared for that. We had art and music activities that the children could do indoors, so they weren’t left with nothing to do. Man: So, what activities can the children look forward to this year? Molly: Well, once again we there will be art and music experts coming in who will lead creative classes for the kids. We also considered providing some more exciting adventure sports like rock climbing and caving. We decided not to, in the end, because it would make the course a lot more expensive for parents. Instead, we’re introducing some fun projects – things that the kids can prepare together and show their parents what they have been doing. For example, we’re going to put on a talent show and organise an American Night. I think it will be good fun for the kids, and teach them good skills too. Man: It sounds fun. So, can children come on the course for the whole summer? Molly: Sure. Kids can come for the whole length of the course if they like. We’ve done our best to keep prices low so that it’s not too expensive for children to attend the course for as long as they want. There’ll be different things to do every week, so the kids won’t be repeating the same activities over and over again. However, I don’t expect many kids will come for the whole summer, as I’m sure they will all go away with their parents for a week or two. We do, however, ask that children attend full weeks, not just single days. It makes it easier for us to keep attendance records. Man: The course is currently available for children aged eight to thirteen. Why is that? Why don’t you allow older teenagers to come on your summer course? Molly: It’s true, there really should be something for teenagers to do in the summer holidays too. Few people organise activities for teenagers because they are seen as difficult to please. They think they aren’t interested in anything except computers and electronic games. I don’t think that’s true. I think they just don’t get the opportunity to do the creative things they used to do when they were children, like painting and team games. At the same time, I don’t think it’s fair to force teenagers to spend their summer holidays with eight year olds. They shouldn’t have to feel responsible for the little ones. They aren’t babysitters. In the future, when I have found the right staff, I’d like to organise a separate summer course for teens too. Man: So, if a child or a child’s parent is listening, and is interested in coming to your summer activity course, what should they do? Molly: They should go to my website, www.summeractivities.co.uk and print out an application form. Send it in with a deposit as soon as possible, because the places are going fast. You’ll need to tell us which weeks you are planning to attend straight away, but you won’t need to choose your activities in advance. You can choose what you want to do every Monday. We do need to know if the child has any special needs regarding their diet. Man: Thank you very much for coming to speak to us, Molly. I hope the summer course is a success!

6 It’s important that parents of children attending the course... A: pay the full amount immediately. B: choose the activities the child wants to do when they apply. C: inform Molly about any food the child cannot eat. Man: We are lucky to have in the studio today, Molly Taylor. Molly is arranging an activity course for the summer holidays. Molly, this is the second year of the course, isn’t it? Molly: Yes, that’s right. The summer course operated for the first time last year for a six week period from the middle of July until the end of August, the length of the summer holidays. This year we’ll be holding the course again. We did think about making the course longer this year and have a seven week course, as there are some schools in the area which finish term a week earlier than other schools. In fact, the two private schools in the town have eight week summer holidays. But in the end we decided to keep to the same plan as last year. Man: But, as I understand, last year’s summer activity course was not a complete success, was it? Molly: Well, there were a few problems, yes. We were actually very surprised last year by the number of people interested in the course. We didn’t actually have enough staff to look after all the children who wanted to attend, and we had to turn people away. The weather also gave us some difficulties. There was such a lot of rain that we couldn’t go outside as often as we wanted to, but had prepared for that.
