Part 2
You’ll hear a woman being interviewed about her film-watching habits. For questions
9-18, complete the questionnaire which the interviewer fills in. You will need to write a
word or a short phrase in each box.
A:
Good evening. I’m from the staff here at the Progress Film Club. We’re having a
survey of our clients, and I wondered if you would be willing to help by answering a
few questions while you’re waiting to go in to see the film?
B:
Yes, of course.
A:
Well, the first question is: are you or have you ever been a member of the Progress
Film Club?
B:
Well, yes, I used to be a member for a number of years, but then there was a period
when I left town - that was five years ago. When I came back, I never bothered to join
again, so I haven’t been a member for the past five years.
A:
What things would make you want to become a member?
B:
Well, as far as I know members don’t really have a say in choosing the films that are
brought here, that’s one thing to consider, but I think maybe the main thing is that there
are very few advantages in actually being a member. For example, you don’t really get
such a large reduction on the cost of a ticket if you’re a member.
A:
So - greater reductions?
B:
Yes.
A:
OK ... next question: where do you prefer to see films?
B:
Welt, this is a slightly embarrassing question to answer here at the club. I mean, I do
like seeing films here, and I also like seeing films on TV or video, but really, where I’d
rather see films is in a regular commercial cinema.
A:
That’s alright - no need to be embarrassed. When did you last see a film at the
Progress Film Club?
B:
Oh, I can’t remember. I think the last film I saw here was
The Third Man.
When was
that? ... About six weeks ago, I think.
A:
Well,
The Third Man
was actually shown three months ago.
B:
Oh, really? Well, must have been then.
A:
Right. You’ve actually answered my next question which is: what was the last film
you saw here? ... so ...
The
Third Man.
You don’t go to see films at the Progress Film
Club very often then, do you?
B:
It depends, really. There are times when I go once a week, if there are a lot of films
that interest me. Other times, as you’ve heard, I don’t go for months on end.
A:
Well, I’ve got to put only one figure in here, so what would you say, on average?
B:
Erm ... once a month.
A:
OK. OK. Which type of film do you think we should show more of at the club?
B:
Foreign language films. I think that there is a real lack of films from other countries
and in other languages here.
A:
OK. Now, we have had a very strong publicity drive in the past few months, and I’m
sure you’ve noticed that.
B:
Yes, I have.
A:
Which type of advert have you seen most?
