Задание 2

Now we are ready to start.

Kate: Hi, Pete - I just wondered if you fancied coming out for a coffee.
Pete: Oh, I was just writing a letter.
Kate: Writing a letter! Is your phone out of order?
Pete: No... well, not exactly a letter. Ben’s applied for a job at a children’s summer camp, and they’ve asked me for a character reference. He must have put me down as one of his referees.
Kate: Oh dear - you’re not going to tell them the truth, are you?
Pete: What do you mean?
Kate: Well, that he’s a big-headed show-off who goes out every night and never does a day’s work.
Pete: Oh, come on, he’s not that bad - I mean, kids love him. Do you remember the birthday party that he arranged for his little brother last month? It was really fantastic! And he always entertains his brother’s friends with his magic tricks and silly jokes.
Kate: Oh yes, he’s great with children - but he’s a big kid himself, isn’t he?
Pete: Yes, I suppose he is a bit immature. You never know what he is up to.
Kate: And I hope they don’t expect him to work before four o’clock in the afternoon. You know what he’s like - he needs a bomb under him to get him up in the morning.
Pete: That’s right. He’s always late in the morning.
Kate: Also, he hates taking orders from anybody. Do you remember that job he had last summer in a restaurant? He ended up throwing a bucket of water over the chef when she asked him to wash the kitchen floor.
Pete: Oh no, don’t remind me. He won't do anything he doesn’t enjoy, will he? Mind you, he did run that restaurant single-handed when the chef and two of the waiters were off sick with food poisoning.
Kate: That’s true. He’s good in a crisis. But having said that, he’s good at causing a crisis as well I mean, you know the food poisoning was his fault, don’t you?
Pete: Oh, yes - oh dear, this isn’t helping. Yet I think he could...
Kate: Hey, do you think he’s still got blue hair?
Pete: Well, his appearance is rather strange but kids find it rather attractive, Come on. Let’s go and get that coffee.

Задание 2

Now we are ready to start.

Mrs Smith: Hello, Mr Jenkins. I’m afraid I have a grumble to make. It’s about your son - well, that football of his, to be precise.
Mr Jenkins: Don’t say he’s kicking it into your garden again, Mrs Smith.
Mrs Smith: Well, yes, I’m afraid it keeps coming over.
Mr Jenkins: I’ve told him not to play in the street. Look, here he comes now. I’1] have this out with him once and for all. Bill, I want you here, this minute.
Bill: What’s wrong, Dad? Why are you looking so angry?
Mr Jenkins: Mrs Smith tells me you’re still letting that football of yours go into her garden.
Bill: Oh, yes. Well, I’m sorry. Hello, Mrs Smith.
Mr Jenkins: It’s no good standing there squirming, Bill. I thought we’d sorted all this out last year, you and your friends. Surely you’ve got the sense to know that you’re causing damage.
Bill: Well, yes, Dad. In fact this time we’ve caused more damage than usual...
Mr Jenkins: Look what happened to Mrs Smith’s daffodils when they were just coming out last spring ...Ruined, absolutely knocked to pieces.
Mrs Smith: It isn’t just the damage, it’s their welfare too. It isn’t safe to play in the street so I don’t want you coming down too hard on him, Mr...
Mr Jenkins: I told you then and I’ll tell you again...
Mrs Smith: Don’t come down on him too hard, Mr Jenkins. I can’t help feeling sorry for the lad. He paid for the damage with his pocket money and then in the autumn he burst a new ball on the thorns of my roses.
Bill: Dad, this time we were kicking the ball up and down the road to avoid it going into the gardens.
After it went on the daffodils we stopped using Mrs Smith’s gate as a goal. It was just an unlucky bounce that took it over the wall and onto the roses. Anyway, it didn’t do any harm that time, not to Mrs Smith’s garden. It was Mrs Smith’s garden that damaged my ball.
Mr Jenkins: You’re being cheeky!
Bill: No, Dad, it’s true. And now, today, it did an even unluckier bounce...
Mr Jenkins: Now listen to me, Bill. Once more into Mrs Smith’s garden and I’1] stop your pocket money for ... well, Idon’t know how many months.
Mrs Smith: Bill, surely it’s best if you play on the recreation ground. It’s not far to walk.
Bill: But there’s just one problem, Mrs Smith.
Mr Jenkins: There can’t be a problem. You don’t mean you youngsters haven’t the strength to walk half a mile.
Bill: Well, no, it’s not that.
Mr Jenkins: Well, go to the recreation ground.
Bill: But Dad, Mrs Smith, my ball’s in Mrs Smith’s front room.
Mrs Smith: What on earth do you mean, in my front room?
Bill: It did another funny bounce. It’s gone through your window.

Now we are ready to start.

James: Hello. Simpson’s Travel Agents.
Sarah: Hello, James. This is Sarah Jackson. How are you?
James: Sarah! Hello! How lovely to hear from you!
Sarah: Sorry to disturb you at work.
James: Oh, don’t worry. I’m only too pleased to be interrupted. Anything to stop me having to deal with customers and their complaints! Never mind! How’s everything with you?
Sarah: Oh, fine. Have you got a lot on at the moment?
James: Well, it’s our busy time of year, you know, coming up to the summer. Everyone’s booking their holidays. Still, I mustn’t complain.
Sarah: That’s right. Business is business! Anyway, James, I spoke to Alan yesterday, you know, about our get-together in Durham on the fourteenth, and I’m just ringing to let you know what’s happening. We’ve decided to meet in The Lotus Garden, the Chinese restaurant...
James: You mean the one in Clay Path? Where we all used to go?
Sarah: Exactly.
James: Oh.
Sarah: Why? Is that no good?
James: It closed about three years ago. But it doesn’t matter. There’s the other one, the Kwai Lam. It’s just as good, better, in fact.
Sarah: Now where is that? I’ve forgotten.
James: How are you getting to Durham?
Sarah: My train leaves Leeds at five o’clock.
James: Well, when you come out of the station, go down the path to the roundabout, and go down North Street towards the town centre.
Sarah: Uh huh. I’m with you.
James: Cross over Framwellgate Bridge and go up into the Market Place, where the Town Hall is. Then you go right into Saddler Street, and then the road divides. Saddler Street goes down to the left; and right is North Bailey. Well, the Kwai Lam is on the corner of Saddler Street and North Bailey.
Sarah: OK. Now, what time are you coming from Sunderland? How are you getting there?
James: Well, I’m so close, I’ll be catching the bus. The office closes at 6.00, and I’ll go straight to the bus station. There’s a bus to Durham every twenty minutes, so I’ll get the first one, probably about 6.30.
Sarah: So you’ll be there at about... what? Seven?
James: Yeah, something like that.
Sarah: Well, look. Why don’t we see you in the Kwai Lam? I’m meeting Alan in The County before that, because we both get in earlier than you. I need to phone Alan to tell him about the Lotus Garden.
James: No, I’ll phone Alan. I haven’t spoken to him for ages.
Sarah: OK. Yeah, you phone him then. What about if we see you in the Kwai Lam between seven and half past? How does that sound?
James: Fine. That’ll give me enough time, I’m sure. Shall I phone and book a table?
Sarah: That would be great. By the way, where are you staying that night?
James: I’ll be coming back here, I suppose.
Sarah: Can’t you stay in Durham so we can have more time together? You don’t want to rush back to Sunderland, do you?
James: I guess I could give a friend of mine a ring to see if he can put me up. Yeah, I’ll do that.
Sarah: Great! Well, we’ll see you on the fourteenth, then, around 7.15. Bye, now, James.
James: Bye, Sarah. Thanks for phoning.

Now we are ready to start.

Fred: Well, James, I’ve got to admit you have a beautiful backyard. How do you do it?
James: Oh, it does take time and patience. But I’ve also got a few secrets...
Fred: OK, OK, what do I have to do to make you reveal your secrets? You know if I had the money, I’d just hire a gardener.
James: No, Fred, you needn’t do that. I’d never hire a gardener. Working in the yard is the greatest form of relaxation that I know of. It’s so relaxing to hear birds singing!
Fred: You’re kidding, right?! I don’t have any birds in my backyard.
James: That’s not a problem. If you want the birds to stay in your backyard, then you must provide shelter for them. A birdhouse can be a cheap and easy way to do this.
Fred: I don’t think I’ll be able to make a birdhouse myself and there are no shops selling them either.
James: Then you can try limiting the amount of grass you have in your backyard. Most song birds don’t like grass, but prefer shrubs and trees. It’s good that you’ve got so many trees!
Fred: I would have never planted so many trees if I had known how much work they’d require.
James: You see, that’s your problem. Your attitude is all wrong.
Fred: Excuse me. My attitude is wrong? What does attitude have to do with gardening?
James: You've got to love working in the backyard - that’s my secret!
Fred: Love working in the backyard? What! What kind of secret is that? I expected some special lawn mower, or a special type of gardening tools.
James: No, any lawn mower or tool will do the job. It’s all in the mind.
Fred: So you think that if I had a better feeling about my work in the garden, everything would be wonderful and I’d have a beautiful lawn and healthy plants like yours, right?
James: ... yes, yes that’s it. You’ve got it!
Fred: To tell you the truth, I think you’re crazy!! On second thoughts, I think I’ll just pay a gardener.
James: Ha-ha, that won’t work.
Fred: Why not?
James: Because he has to enjoy his gardening...
Fred: Please, James, thank you very much for your advice. But, don’t start it again!

Now we are ready to start.

Interviewer: I know you’ve always been interested in painting even when you were a young boy. Now, I’m particularly interested in this new project of yours which is aimed at encouraging the under-16s to paint.
Artist: Yeah - I can’t imagine life without painting. But you’re right, my main passion at the moment is getting through to kids. A few months ago I was doing a TV show and at the end of the programme I asked kids to write in and tell me how many of them spent time at home painting.
Interviewer: Did you get many replies?
Artist: I was amazed at the response. I thought if I get a 100 replies, I’ll be pleased, but do you know, I got more than 4000 and from kids all over the world. They wrote and told me what they paint, whether they use oils, watercolour, crayons or even make their own special paint mixtures! And in a way it proved my theory because I was convinced that there must be loads of young people out there painting, even though most TV art programmes are targeted at adult audiences.
Interviewer: And have you discovered things about this age group that do surprise you?
Artist: Yeah! I guess I thought these kids would be painting for their friends but what’s really nice is that they’re painting for their families. In most cases kids put up their pictures on the kitchen walls, stick them on the fridge door or a cup cupboard somewhere, but if everyone really likes it, they’ll get a frame and hang it somewhere it can be admired by all. I think that’s great!
Interviewer: I can remember when I was a kid that my mother used to get fed up with me if I spread things all over the kitchen table and then didn’t clear away. Do you think this generation is any different?
Artist: Probably not! But some kids mentioned a great idea which is that their parents set aside special times for them to take over the kitchen. One lad said he’d been painting since he was eight and that he’d learnt good practice automatically and now clears away and washes up his brushes without being told.
Interviewer: Is it difficult trying to experiment with mixing your own paints?
An artist: Hm - expensive, if not difficult! I used to ask my parents to buy all sorts of different kinds of oil paints so I could try out new ideas. They were pretty good about it but I know they weren’t happy if I wasted the paint or it was such a disgusting colour that it had to be thrown away. They preferred it if I played safe.
Interviewer: So what happens now with all the information you’ve collected?
Artist: The next thing is to select about twenty kids and involve them in my own TV art programme but using their ideas and pictures. I’m reading through things to see who sounds adventurous and who has really tried to create something individual. It’s also important to get a good range of ages into the programme, from about 8 to 16 and obviously a mix of boys and girls.
Interviewer: I thought the advice was to never work with animals or children!
Artist: Yeah, I think it is. You’ll never see me on an art programme with animals, that’s for sure!
But what I’d like is to create a relaxed atmosphere where viewers can learn as well as enjoy what’s going on. I can imagine we’re all going to get in each other’s way, but then that’s what an artist’s studio is usually like. My Dad would offer to help and just get in the way, messing up my paints and trying out different colours before I’d finished. It was maddening.
Interviewer: Well, thank you for talking to us today and good luck ...

Now we are ready to start.

Emily: Hi, Jerry. The school year is almost over. Do you have any plans for the summer holiday?
Jerry: I’m planning on sleeping all day, every day!
Emily: Oh, come on Jerry, you must be kidding.
Jerry: Yeah, Emily, I’m just pulling your leg. Actually, I’m planning to go to the Lake District.
Emily: Really? Why would you like to go to there? It’s not a very popular tourist destination.
Jerry: Exactly! It’s not very popular, so it won’t be too crowded. I enjoyed my trip to Spain, but there were so many people there. I think it spoiled the atmosphere a bit.
Emily: I’m sure the Lake District won’t be so crowded. I wouldn’t mind getting away from the crowds myself. Still, I wonder... is there anything worth seeing in the Lake District?
Jerry: Sure! For one thing, this region boasts beautiful natural scenery. I’m sure you’ve heard of the the Aira Force Waterfalls, mentioned in Wordsworth’s poems. There’s also The Dungeon Ghyll Force, which is said to be spectacular. And you can admire attractive mountains everywhere, for example, Helvellyn.
Emily: Yes, I have heard of Helvellyn, but won’t you get bored just looking at the scenery?
Jerry: Come on, Emily, there are lots of other things to do. Ican go hiking in the Lake District, visit famous Hadrian’s Wall and Hardknott Roman Fort, and I know you’ve heard of Carlisle, a historical city, which is well-known for its castle.
Emily: Hey, when you describe it like that, it sounds really interesting!
Jerry: And that’s not all. I’1l be able to try a real Shepherd’s Pie made with local lamb in rich gravy topped with creamy mash or a delicious fish pie made with salmon, cod or haddock from the North Sea.
Emily: Do you have a place to stay in the Lake District?
Jerry: Yes, I’m very lucky. My friend’s sister is the manager of the Western Cumbria Park Hotel, the best hotel in Carlisle. I’ve seen some pictures on the Internet, it’s really nice! But I think outside Carlisle, I'll stay in a self catering cottage or, perhaps, buy a tent and go camping.
Emily: That’s great, Jerry. I’m looking forward to seeing your photos when you get back.

(Knocking)
The woman in the newspaper office: Come in, please.
Mark: Hello.
The woman: Hello. How are you doing?
Mark: Fine, thanks. How are you?
The woman: Very well, thank you.
Mark: Good. I was just walking by and I saw the sign in the window: ‘Journalist wanted’. Are you still looking for somebody?
The woman: Yes, we are. One of our journalists quit last week because she moved house.
Mark: Well, I’d like to apply for the job. I don’t have a lot of experience but I worked for the college newspaper when I was a student and I have written a couple of things on the Internet.
The woman: What did you write on the Internet?
Mark: I just wrote a couple of articles. One was about the village that I used to live in.
The woman: Traditional village? Where was it?
Mark: In Thailand.
The woman: Oh, Thailand. That is very interesting. I have always dreamed of visiting it.
Mark: And another one was about a trip that I did in Australia.
The woman: Mm. Where was it? Did you go into the desert or around the coast?
Mark: Through the desert. It was a safari trip, but we also visited quite a lot of interesting places, for example, Uluru. It is a rock and it’s notable for changing its colour as the different light strikes it at different times of the day and year. The most remarkable sight is at sunset when it briefly glows red. I made lots of beautiful pictures.
The woman: That sounds fascinating. What about your qualifications?
Mark: I’ve got a bachelor’s degree in journalism, and I’m thinking of studying for a master’s degree.
The woman: That’s fine. So you have a bit of experience and a good qualification. So, yes, why not?
I think you can have this job.
Mark: How much is the pay?
The woman: Well, the pay is pretty good, actually. But you’d better discuss it with the manager.
Mark: Aren’t you a manager?
The woman: No, I’m a receptionist. The manager has just gone out but he promised to be in in an hour. So if you wait, you can ask him any questions you like.
Mark: I’d better come back in an hour.

Now we are ready to start.

Jenny: Hello, may I speak to Mr. Adams?
Mr. Adams: This is Mr. Adams speaking.
Jenny: Hi, Mr. Adams. My name is Jenny Shields and I am calling from Walker’s Oil Service. How are you today?
Mr. Adams: I’m fine, thanks.
Jenny: As you may or may not know, Walker Oil is one of the oldest and best-known oil companies in Massachusetts. It has already been on the market for 10 years with a reputation for high-quality oil, excellent maintenance service, and timely delivery.
Mr. Adams: That’s great! And what is the purpose of your call?
Jenny: We are looking for new customers. Mr. Adams, could you tell me whether you use oil, gas, or electric heat?
Mr. Adams: We use oil heat but my wife wants to change it for gas heat.
Jenny: I don’t think it’s a good idea! Oil burners are fuel-efficient and they are workhorses. However, they do need regular maintenance to prevent costly fuel bills. Could you please tell me if you have had your burner inspected or cleaned in the last six months?
Mr. Adams: I don’t really recall the last time we had the burner checked. Maybe last year.
Jenny: I would like one of our service people to stop by so that you can take advantage of our free inspection and cleaning. Is Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. a convenient time for you?
Mr. Adams: You know, my wife and I are on a fixed income and we really can’t afford to explore trial offers at this time.
Jenny: I completely understand, Mr. Adams. Walker Oil is known for delivering efficient and affordable solutions for home heating. In addition, you will also save a lot of money each year on your fuel bills with our free annual cleaning and inspection service.
Mr. Adams: My burner seems to be working just fine.
Jenny: Mr. Adams, do you remember how cold it was last winter? Fuel prices skyrocketed and many people had burners that broke down during the coldest weeks of the year. With our free annual inspections, you never have to worry about breakdowns during those fierce cold spells.
Mr. Adams: Okay, well, I suppose I could see you on Wednesday.
Jenny: Mr. Adams, this offer will allow you to have peace of mind this winter knowing that you took the time to have your burner inspected and cleaned, thus reducing your overall fuel costs. Plus you get a free oil fill-up when you sign up for our regular oil delivery service. Mr. Adams, I have you down for Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Have a pleasant evening. Good-bye.
Mr. Adams: Bye.

Now we are ready to start.

Tim: Alan, would you like to see the pictures of my holiday in Italy?
Alan: Sure, what was it like?
Tim: Ah, the holiday was great! The food was great! But the traffic was horrible!
Alan: Really? Why was the traffic horrible?
Tim: Actually, the general skill level of drivers in Italy is rather bad. Driving too fast for conditions, overtaking in stupid places and driving while talking on a mobile phone are all very common there.
Alan: Oh, Tim! Did you have any accidents?
Tim: Luckily, we didn’t. But the death rate on the roads in Italy is not funny at all. Anyway, I don’t want to think about it!
Alan: OK, OK, let’s return to your positive impressions. Oh, what a beautiful picture!
Tim: Yes, this is a picture of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It was a great feeling to stand right in front of such a fantastic building. But, honestly, the tower didn’t seem to be that leaning.
Alan: Incredible! I’ve always wanted to climb it. Did you do that?
Tim: Yes, we climbed to the top! It was raining that day, but it was still wonderful.
Alan: Was it scary?
Tim: No, I wasn’t frightened at all. It’s not very tall, actually.
Alan: And what’s this?
Tim: That’s a photo of the River Arno in Florence. That’s the ‘Ponte Vecchio’, which means the ‘Old Bridge’.
Alan: Yeah, I know. It’s like the Tower Bridge in London.
Tim: Not exactly. Yes, it’s the symbol of the city but unlike the Tower Bridge, it has small houses on both sides of the bridge.
Alan: It’s really charming. And what was Florence like? Did you like the city?
Tim: It was marvellous. There were beautiful old medieval buildings in the city, impressive cathedrals and churches, and lots of wonderful museums.
Alan: How was your Italian?
Tim: My Italian wasn’t very good. But many Italians speak English very well. I was really impressed!
Alan: Oh, this picture looks wonderful.
Tim: Yes, that’s a shot of a tasty pizza served by a beautiful Italian girl! You know, Italians are famous for their food and wine. So we didn’t miss a chance to try traditional dishes.
Alan: I’m so jealous ... I hope to visit this country some day.
Tim: That’s a really great country. I’d recommend Italy anytime!
