Extract 5
If the unpredictable British weather prevents you from getting to the seaside this
summer, the themes of sun, sea and sand are being celebrated indoors in a number of
galleries around the country. ‘Beside the seaside’ in York has gathered the work of UK
artists whose work focuses on images of that strange world where land and sea meet.
All exhibits shown can be bought by visitors, including ceramic life-size ducks. In
Scarborough you can see the award-winning exhibition ‘Holiday in a lunch hour’,
where lunchtime visitors to the gallery are guaranteed sunshine by being taken to
holiday locations of their choice through computer technology. And no money is wasted
on sun-cream.
Extract 6
A:
Excuse me, I’m not sure that I’ve got this right. Is the next train into town leaving at
10:45 from Platform 5?
B:
Yes, that’s correct. But there’s one slightly later which is a fast train and will get you
there earlier. It leaves from Platform 8.
A:
Yes, but I’m not sure that my ticket is valid for that. I haven’t paid - what do you call
it? – the supplement for the fast train.
B:
Oh, you don’t need to pay a supplement for a fast train. Any ticket for your
destination is valid.
A:
Ah, good, so I can take that one?
B:
Yes, and it leaves from Platform 8.
A:
Thanks.
Extract 7
You know that cookbook for dieting that you mentioned -
Diet
with
Taste
? Well, it
really looks great ... Yes, well, I’m not sure about the photographs, they’re a bit too ...
Yes, well, I’m not convinced that it really does help people lose weight. It claims you
can eat as much as you like as long as you stick to the foods they recommend and I’ve
had bad experiences with that sort of thing. Oh, but she has recipes from all over the
world, so you never get bored. Anyway I thought I’d get it even if it won’t necessarily
help me to lose weight.
Extract 8
Well, I use my bike to get to work. It still is the best way of getting about, but I find it
quite hazardous - you really have to be extremely careful. There’s the pollution
problem, for one, because you’re breathing in all the fumes from the cars, but in
addition there are all sorts of other dangers. Basically, cars and lorries don’t recognise
our presence and they tend to squeeze us off the road. They drive extremely close to
you, they take a turn right in front of you and they don’t even use their indicator! And
there are drivers who chuck burning cigarettes out of their windows, and you have holes
in the streets, and then there’s all the broken glass on the roads which causes so many
punctures ...
