TEST 3
Part 1
You’ll hear people talking in eight different situations. For questions 1-8, choose the
best answer. A, B or C.
Extract 1
A:
So how long have you been living here?
B:
Mmm ... well, I came last September.
A:
And where are you living at the moment?
B:
I’m staying in a University Hall near Gordon Square - it’s only for students coming
from the Commonwealth. It’s the best location in town, and it’s amazingly cheap. You
get a very good social life and meet a lot of people.
A:
And what exactly are you doing? You said earlier you were a lawyer?
B
: Well, not exactly. I’m training actually ...
Extract 2
A:
It’s making a terrible noise. I hate those alarms that go off like that. I wonder how
long it’s going to take them to get here.
B:
Well, the guard has to drive to the administration building, get a key, drive back here
- it can take up to ten or fifteen minutes.
A:
That’s not good enough, is it? By that time someone could have stolen half the
equipment. I wonder what happened to set it off. Can’t you turn it off?
B:
No. You need to be able to get into this control board which tells you which room
it’s been set off in, and they come here and check that everything’s alright.
A:
Well, we don’t even know which room it’s in, do we?
Extract 3
Hello, this is John here. I got your message about missing me at lunchtime today and I
realised that it was Mike’s farewell party. I simply went to lunch and the party totally
slipped out of my mind. It’s just that I got the note so long ago. I do hope he won’t think
that I didn’t feel like going. Can you tell him that I was really looking forward to seeing
him and I wish him all the best in the future? Thanks. Bye.
Extract 4
A:
Hello. Mary Carter speaking.
B:
Hello, Mary, John here. About the meeting tomorrow...
A:
B:
Yes. Is it alright if we have the meeting at your office instead of mine? It’s simply
that I’m going to be near your office for another meeting and it would be easier for me
if we did it that way.
A:
Oh, well, the problem is that I’ve asked Martin to come along and he will be coming
straight to your office after inspecting the new building.
B:
Can’t you let him know about the change?
A:
No - he’s away and there’s no way I can get in touch with him before tomorrow.
B:
Ah, well, so we’ll have to leave it as it is.
