getting old and thinking that I never really tried and I never made it because I gave up.
Part 3
You will hear five different people talking about a concert on a radio phone-in
programme. For questions 19-23, choose from the list A-F what each speaker is doing.
Use the letters only once. There is one extra letter which you do not need to use.
Speaker 1
Yeah, well Barry, I went along the other night and what I want to know is,
why did they only play for 40 minutes? I mean, we paid enough for it, and the
programme said they’d be on for an hour and a half. I wouldn’t have bothered going if
I’d known that was all we were going to get - I mean, it’s not exactly fair to the fans is
it?
Speaker 2
Yes, hello Barry. I heard some of your earlier callers saying how they
couldn’t see anything, you know, they were too far away and all they could see was the
video screens, they couldn’t see the band on stage. Well, all I can say is they must have
got there too late. We queued up for ages before the doors opened and we got right to
the front, really close to the stage. Really, that’s what you have to do if you want a good
view, even if it does mean a long wait.
Speaker 3
It’s all right for all these other callers, talking about the concert, but what I
want to know is, how do you get in? I mean, I tried everything to get a ticket - I phoned,
I wrote, I went to agencies but everywhere I tried, they’d sold out. I must have been
going to the wrong places. So, has anyone out there got any ideas where I might have
more luck next time?
Speaker 4
Barry, you read all that stuff in the press about how they’re not as good as
they used to be, but you could have fooled me. I just wanted to phone up and say I
haven’t seen anything like it, and I’ve been to plenty of their concerts. I read somewhere
that they didn’t put as much energy into their performance as they used to but all I can
say is, whoever wrote that can’t have been at the same concert I was at.
Speaker 5
Am I the only one who noticed? Surely not. None of your callers so far has
said anything about their new look. Personally, I thought it was a bit of a mistake, but
what do the other fans make of it? I’d like to know what the general view is. I mean, the
new hairstyles and clothes are quite a radical change - do people out there think it’s a
good move?
Part 4
You will hear an interview with two young people who spent some time travelling
abroad. For questions 24-30, write D next to what Dan says, A next to what Anna says
and N next to what neither of them says.
Presenter:
These days a lot of young people go ‘backpacking’ - travelling around with
all their possessions in the bag they carry on their back. I have with me today Dan
Roberts and Anna Renton, who are going to share some of their experiences of doing
just that. Dan, if I can turn to you first, you went round Europe, didn’t you?
Dan:
Yes, for three weeks in August. I left home at three o’clock on the morning of the
first day of the holiday and travelled for 27 hours before arriving at Marseille, the first
stop on our itinerary. It was exhausting. After this experience I quickly got used to
sleeping in very uncomfortable places - this is the only way to survive such intensive
travelling.
