Janet:Oh. My own room? In China we usually have several people in a dormitory. Porter: Well, here you don't have to share with anyone.

Janet: Thank you sir.

Porter: No need to call me sir, Ms Li. Everyone calls me Stewart.

Janet: Please call me Janet!

Porter: OK, Janet, um, can you just sign for your keys, please?

Conversation 3

Conversation 1

Kate: Oh, this looks nice.

Mark: Cool.

Waitress: Good afternoon, table for three? Come this way.

Mark: Let's have a look at the menu.

Mark: Thank you.

Janet: Thank you.

Waitress: The specials are on the board.

Kate: So, what sorts of food do you like, Janet?

Janet: Well, I like spicy food. And I'm not very fond of raw food! What would you recommend?

Mark: Why don't you try the chicken curry? That's nice and spicy.

Janet: What's in it?

Mark: Chicken cooked in tomatoes and onions with Indian spices.

Janet: I'll try it. Do we all choose a selection of dishes to share or only one dish per person?

Mark: Usually one dish per person.

Kate: Or the moussaka looks good.

Janet: What's it made with?

Kate: It's made with lamb and eggplant. It's a Greek dish.

Janet: How is it cooked?

Kate: It's baked in the oven.

Janet: Mm, that sounds good too.

Kate: And as a starter?

Janet: What's minestrone soup?

Mark: It's an Italian soup with vegetables and pasta. It's delicious!

Janet: OK, I'll have that.

Kate: Waitress?

Waitress: What can I get for you?

Kate: Well, for the starter, can we have two minestrone soups, and for the main course, one moussaka and one curry, please. What about you, Mark?

Mark: I'll have the prawns with garlic and the chilli con carne. And could you bring us some water, please?

Waitress: OK.

Mark: Thank you.

Waitress: Thanks.

Janet: What's chilli con carne?

Mark: It's a spicy Mexican dish with beef and beans. It's very hot!

Conversation 2

Janet: That was great! Except I don't like cold water. I usually drink hot water. Kate: Hot water? We never drink hot water except with tea. Let's have a dessert.

What would you like, Janet?

Janet: Any suggestions?

Kate: Well, why don't you try the apple strudel? It's an Austrian dish. It's made with apple, pastry and spices.

Janet: No, I'm not so keen on pastry. ...

What's a chocolate brownie?

Mark: It's a kind of chocolate cake.

Janet: How is it made?

Kate: It's made with flour, eggs and butter...

Mark: And lots of chocolate!

Kate: Y ou'll love it.

Janet: What kind of ice cream is there?

Kate: I'll ask ... Excuse me ... What flavor ice cream do you have?

Waitress: Strawberry, vanilla and chocolate.

Janet: I'll just have a fruit salad, I think.

Mark: And Kate, what are you going to have?

Kate: Same for me.

Mark: Could you bring us two fruit salads, and a chocolate brownie?

Waitress: Sure.

Unit 3

Conversation 1

Mark: Hi, what're you doing?

Janet: Oh, nothing much ... Well, I'm just doing this quiz here in the newspaper. Mark: Let's have a look then.

Janet: Here. It's called, "How much do you know about memory?" I've just done it. Do you want to have a go?

Mark: OK, might as well. I'm not busy.

Janet: Right. Look, I'll read the statements. Then you have to answer "true" or "false". Ready?

Mark: Y ea.

Janet: OK. Physical exercise improves your memory. True or false?

Mark: True, I suppose. It sounds like the right answer.

Janet: Y ou're right; exercise does improve your memory. Next statement: 30 per cent of people have a visual memory.

Mark: That sounds about right. True?

Janet: No, wrong, I'm afraid. In fact, 60 per cent of people have a visual memory. Mark: Really? Actually, I've got a pretty good memory.

Janet: Have you? OK ... Next one ... When you're tired, it's more difficult to remember things.

Mark: That's true, obviously. I can't remember a thing when I'm tired.

Janet: Correct! If you do one activity for a long time, your memory will improve. Mark: I'm not sure ... True?

Janet: Actually, it's false.

Mark: Oh!

Janet: Eating fruit and vegetables can improve your memory.

Mark: I read something in The Times about that. True.

Janet: True, it says here.

Mark: Oh, no! I've got a lecture. I'd forgotten. I'd better get going!

Janet: Oh, Mark! What a good memory you have!

Conversation 2

Kate: Y ou're looking a bit down, Janet. What's up?

Janet: Well ... I'm finding studying at Oxford quite hard.

Kate: Y ou're telling me! There's so much work!

Janet: It's not the amount of work, but everything's so different. In China, generally we have large classes, we don't have tutorials. And mostly, our teacher tells us what we should do. So I'm not used to asking questions or discussing things. I find it difficult.

Kate: Y ou have to memorize a lot, don't you?

Janet: Y es, but I'm good at that.

Kate: Y ou're lucky. There's so much to remember studying law! I have difficulty sometimes, I really do.

Janet: Y es, well, we've been trained to do that. But we don't have so much training in critical thinking.

Kate: What do you mean by critical thinking?

Janet: Let me think ... I think it's giving your opinion and then justifying it.

Kate: Y es, I suppose that's what our teachers have always encouraged us to do. Janet: I am getting better at it, I suppose.

Kate: Hey! How about this? Let's pretend I'm your tutor. I'll make a statement. Y our task is to examine it and then ask questions.

Janet: OK.

Kate: Everyone is capable of learning a second language. Go on, ask a question! Janet: Why do you say that?

Kate: That's what the research tells us. Now ask another one.

Janet: Can you give an example of some research?

Kate: Um ... No! Look, I'm starving and I can't think at all when I'm hungry.

Unit 4

Conversation 1

Kate: Oh, I must make a quick call. ...

Jacky: Hello, Jacky Gordon speaking.

Kate: Hello, can I speak to Abbie, please?

Jacky: I'll see if she's in, can you hold on?

Kate: Sure. ...

Jacky: Hello? She's out, I'm afraid. Can I give her a message — er ... or I can ask her to call you back?

Kate: Could you ask her to call me back?

Jacky: Sure. Who's calling?

Kate: Kate Santos.

Jacky: Kate Santos, OK. Does Abbie have your number?

Kate: Y es, she does.

Jacky: I'll tell her you called.

Kate: Thanks.

Janet: Abbie? I know a girl called Abbie. She reads English, doesn't she?

Kate: Y es, how do you know her?

Janet: She has a tutorial just after me so we chat a bit. We get on really well. Kate: Y es, everyone likes Abbie. I think it's because she's really interested in people — she's a very good listener. She should be, she works for Nightline.

Janet: Nightline?

Kate: Oh, I haven't told you, I've joined it.

Janet: What is it? I've never heard of it.

Kate: Look, I've got a leaflet about it.

Janet: So...

Kate: It's a university helpline for students who are having problems. I'm training to be one of the people they can call to talk to.

Janet: Y ou mean, you're a volunteer?

Kate: Y es.

Janet: Oh, that's great, Kate

Conversation 2

Abbie: Hi, Abbie speaking.

Kate: Hi, Abbie, it's Kate Santos.

Abbie: Hi! I'm sorry not to have called you back. I've got a lot on at the moment. How's things?

Kate: Fine. I just wanted to let you know I won't be able to come to the next training session.

Abbie: Um ... It's quite an important session. Oh, can you hold on a moment. There's someone at the door. ...

Abbie: Hi, I'm sorry, look, can I call you back later?

Kate: Sure. What time?

Abbie: Is three o'clock OK?

Kate: Three's fine.

Abbie: OK, I'll call you then. Speak soon.

Kate: Bye.

Abbie: Bye.

...

Kate: Abbie's my Nightline trainer.

Janet: Y ou're saying she's your Nightline trainer! But she's still a student.

Kate: Well, experienced students train new students, that's the way it works. Janet: Oh, I see.

Kate: It's great! At the moment, she's training us in listening skills.

Janet: Listening skills? What do you mean, listening skills?

Kate: Um ... The ability to really listen to someone and make them feel you're listening. It's very important.

Janet: I've never thought about that before.

Kate: Y es, for example, one thing you can do is listen carefully and then repeat what someone says but maybe a little differently.

Janet: So what you're saying is, repeat what someone says but maybe not the exact same words.

Kate: Y es. Y ou see, when you do that, you check you've understood and you show them you're really listening.

Janet: So they know you've really heard them.

Kate: V ery good, Janet. I can see you've got it already! Hi ... how's it going?

Unit 5

Conversation 1

Kate: Hi, Becky, how's it going?

Becky: Good!

Mark: Guys, look, can you help me with a problem?

Janet: Y es, of course.

Mark: The thing is, there's this girl I really like called Jenny Sparks. She's a Fresher, really stunning, reads history. I know her name because someone pointed her out to me, but I've never actually spoken to her. Do either of you know her?

Kate: No.

Janet: No, I don't know her. Mark, how can you like her if you haven't met her? Kate: It's because she's absolutely gorgeous, Janet.

Mark: That's right! I want to ask her out, but first I've got to meet her. Got any suggestions?

Becky: Guys! Y ou want to order?

Mark: Sorry.

Kate: Three cappuccinos?

Becky: Sure.

Janet: Do you know anyone who knows her? Y ou could ask them to introduce you. Mark: No, I don't, that's the problem.

Kate: Are you matchmaking, Janet?

Janet: What's matchmaking?

Kate: Making introductions between people who might like each other. We don't do that here. How about just walking up to her and saying Hi? Why don't you do that? Mark: No.

Kate: Why not?

Mark: I'm not usually shy, but — she's so ... you know ...!

Janet: Oh, Mark!

Kate: Just believe in yourself, Mark. Y ou're a great guy!

Janet: I understand Mark completely.

Kate: Well, it's the only way he's going to get to talk to her.

Mark: OK, I'll give it a try.

Becky: Solved the Jenny problem yet?

Girls: Thank you.

Janet: Y ou'll be fine. Mark. She'll like him, won't she, Becky?

Becky: Of course she will!

Conversation 2

Mark: Hey, guess what, guys, I've got a date with Jenny.

Kate: Y ou did it, you asked her out?

Janet: When are you seeing her?

Mark: Saturday. We're going to The Eagle and Child.

Janet: Sounds great.

Mark: Y eah! The thing is, I'm a bit nervous.

Janet: Are you?

Mark: Y es, I'm afraid I'll make a fool of myself. I could do with some more advice. Kate: Any ideas?

Janet: Um ... I'm thinking.

Kate: Well ... One thing is ... if you're nervous, it's easy to talk too much, so remember not to do that.

Mark: Good point. I'll remember that.

Janet: Y ou should make her feel special. Show her you're really interested in her. Mark: I am really interested in her.

Janet: Well, you should show her you are.

Mark: That'll be easy! What else?

Kate: It's a good idea to look good.

Mark: That's pretty obvious!

Kate: I mean clean clothes, Mark!

Mark: Oh ... thanks, Kate! Any more advice?

Kate: Y es, the most important thing is, just be yourself.

Becky: How's it going, Mark?

Kate: He's worried this girl won't like him.

Becky: She'll love you! Ready to order?

Unit 6

Conversation 1

Janet: So, are you looking for anything in particular?

Mark: Maybe a T-shirt or a polo shirt.

Janet: We could go into the covered market and have a look at the shops in there. Kate: And what about you?

Janet: I need some cosmetics from the Body Shop on Corn market Street.

Kate: And I'm looking for something to wear to Jenny's party tonight. But nothing too expensive. Anyway, look, let's go in here.

Assistant: Can I help you?

Kate: We're just looking.

Mark: What do you think of this one?

Kate: Hmm, it's OK, but I'm not sure green suits you. Do they have it in other colors?

Janet: What size do you take?

Mark: Medium, I guess. Oh, here's a nice polo shirt. I like the color. It's a bit small, though.

Janet: Do they have it in a larger size?

Mark: Y es, here we go. That's great.

Janet: How much is it?

Mark: Twelve pounds. That's not too bad. I'll buy it.

Mark: I'll have this, please.

Assistant: That'll be 12 pounds please. ... Thank you. ... And here's your shirt, and here's your receipt.

Mark: Thanks.

Mark: Look, I've really got to go. I'll see you at the party tonight.

Kate: OK.

Janet:Bye.

Conversation 2

Janet: OK, Kate. Now it is time to find something for you. What about this dress? Kate: Hey, that's lovely.

Janet: Would you like to try it on?

Kate: Y es, OK. Where are the changing rooms?

Assistant: Just behind you.

Kate: Thank you. ... What do you think?

Janet: Well, it really suits you, but ...

Kate: ... it's a bit big. Excuse me, do you have this in a smaller size?

Assistant: What size do you take?

Kate: Size 8, I think.

Assistant: No, I'm afraid we don't. That's the last one.

Kate: No, it doesn't really fit. OK, I'll leave it.

Janet: Actually, I really like it.

Kate: Why don't you try it on, then?

Janet: OK. ... What do you think?

Kate: Perfect. It really suits you.

Janet: It's a bit expensive.

Kate: Go on! Y ou deserve it!

Janet: OK, I'll have it. But I don't have enough cash. ... Can I pay by credit card? Assistant: Sure.

Janet: Thank you.

Assistant: Please enter your PIN. ... And here's your receipt.

Janet: Thank you.

Assistant: Thanks a lot.

Kate: That was painless, wasn't it? But I still don't have a dress for the party. Let's try somewhere else.

Assistant: Bye.

Girls: Bye.

Unit 7

Conversation 1

Janet: What time are your parents arriving?

Kate: Eleven. Oh no, it's 10.30! I must clean up my room, it's a mess.

Janet: Would you like me to give you a hand?

Kate: Oh, yes, that would be great! ...

Janet: So, what are they like, your parents?

Kate: They're great. They're very different. Mum's pretty sociable — she's real funny. Dad isn't as sociable — he's kind of quiet — he reads a lot and he likes spending time alone. He's a lot more chilled than Mum.

Janet: They do sound quite different.

Kate: Y es. Mum — she tends to worry a lot, whereas Dad's quite ... easygoing. He's good at listening, you can tell him anything. Um ... could you put those over there? Janet: Sure. So who are you most like?

Kate: Y ou tell me!

Janet: Hmm, you've got a bit of both of them, I think.

Kate: Y es, I think so, too. I'm sociable, like Mum —

Janet: Y ou're very sociable!

Kate: Y es, but I like to spend time alone.

Janet: I don't think you worry a lot, do you?

Kate: No, I'm like Dad in that way.

Kate: Oh, look at the time, I must go. I'm meeting them outside the Lodge.

Conversation 2

Julia: This is great. It's just like I pictured it. Look at that, isn't it beautiful?

Rob: Wow, Kate, honey! I love your school!

Kate: No, Dad, I'm not at Law School, I'm at university!

Rob: OK, honey. It's Oxford, England — I know! ...

Rob: Listen, honey, Granddad had a fall just before we left.

Kate: Oh, no!

Rob: It's OK. He broke his arm but they don't think it's serious.

Julia: I don't know, when old people break something, it can be very serious.

Rob: I think he'll be fine!

Kate: Tell me all about it. What exactly happened?

Rob: He fell down the steps in the backyard.

Kate: Oh, poor Granddad! So go on!

Rob: He was taken to the hospital by ambulance ... they kept him there for several hours, didn't they, Julia? But they let him go home.

Julia: I feel awful that we can't be with him.

Rob: Julia, I spoke to Granddad as soon as we landed and he said the doctors aren't worried.

Kate: What else did he say?

Rob: He said his arm doesn't hurt him.

Kate: Oh, good! So he'll be OK, right? There's no real concern?

Rob: No, I told you, honey, there's no need to worry. ... Just look at that! What a great place!

Kate: Y es, isn't it wonderful?

Rob: Come on, let's go and eat. Isn't there a pub nearby? I seem to remember passing one. I'd love to eat in an English pub.

Kate: OK, let's do that.

Rob: There's no need to worry, honey.

Unit 8

Conversation 1

Assistant: Hi, how can I help you?

Mark: I'd like to book a flight and make a hotel reservation.

Assistant: Going to ...?

Mark: To New Y ork, please.

Assistant: Is that a one-way or a return?

Mark: A return, please. Out on the 17th of June and coming back on the 10th of September.

Assistant: OK, and I guess you want economy not club?

Mark: Y es, economy, please. Could I have an aisle seat, not a window seat? Assistant: I'm afraid you'll have to do that at the airport. What about accommodation?

Mark: Well, most of the time I'm working in upstate New Y ork, but I need a cheap hotel in New Y ork City and one in Boston for a few nights.

Assistant: How many nights will you be staying?

Mark: Three nights in Boston and two nights in New Y ork. The 12th to the 15th of August in Boston, leaving on the 15th, so three nights in Boston. Then the 15th to the 17th in New Y ork, leaving on the 17th. So two nights in New Y ork.

Assistant: OK, I can check that out for you. Single or double room?

Mark: Single. With a shower, please.

Assistant: I can get you rooms in budget hotels and motels for around 75 dollars a night.

Mark: Does the price include breakfast?

Assistant: Let me see. Y es, I can do that for you.

Mark: What time is check-out?

Assistant: Usually midday ... Do you have a student card? Y ou'll need it for the cheap flights and the accommodation. Oh, and any travelling within the US? We can get you seats on Greyhound buses, if you want.

Mark: Actually, that would be great. Can you get me a seat from New Y ork to Boston, travelling on the 12th of August? And then one from New Y ork to Chicago on the 17th? After Chicago I'm going to DC and then back to New Y ork, but I'll get those tickets when I'm in the States.

Assistant: No problem, just give me a few minutes ...

Conversation 2

Kate: Have you made plans for the summer vacation yet?

Mark: Y es, I'm travelling around the States for three months.

Janet: Three months! Wow, you're lucky! Whereabouts are you going?

Mark: Well, I'm flying to New Y ork City, and then I'm working for eight weeks as a counsellor on a summer camp in upstate New Y ork. And then I'm travelling around for about four weeks, back in time for the start of term.

Kate: Where are you staying?

Mark: On the campsite in the mountains. It's about an hour away from New Y ork City by bus.

Kate: What are you going to do there?

Mark: I'll be looking after teenagers, city kids mostly. We're going swimming, rafting and canoeing, and maybe backpacking in the mountains.

Janet: That sounds amazing! And after that, what are your plans?

Mark: I'll catch the Greyhound bus to Boston, and relax in a hotel for three days. Kate: The museums in Boston are great! Y ou absolutely must visit them.

Mark: OK, I'll do that. Then I go back to New Y ork for two days, to watch a baseball game.

Kate: The New Y ork Yankees? That's my team!

Mark: Then I'm flying to Chicago for six days, to stay with some friends.

Kate: And will you fly home from Chicago?

Mark: No, then I'll go to DC for six days to do some sightseeing. And then I'll be back a few days before the beginning of term.

Janet: It sounds like a dream vacation.

Unit 9

Conversation 1

Kate: Oh, Janet, you don't look too good. What's the matter?

Janet: Oh, I'm OK. I am not sleeping very well at the moment, so I'm quite tired. I fell asleep in the lecture just now.

Kate: Is anything wrong?

Janet: Oh, I don't know. Maybe I'm worried about my end of term exams. And I've got an essay to write.

Kate: Are you eating properly? I didn't see you at dinner last night.

Janet: No, I've lost my appetite. I can't face any more Western food for a few days. Kate: I think you've lost some weight. Do you feel sick?

Janet: Mostly homesick.

Kate: Have you talked to your tutor?

Janet: No! Why would I do that?

Kate: Well, it's part of his job to keep an eye on your health. Why don't you make an appointment to see the doctor?

Janet: But I'm all right.

Kate: Do you have any other symptoms? Do you have a headache?

Janet: Well, I have a headache nearly all the time at the moment. And I feel a bit depressed. But it's nothing. I'll be all right. Please! Don't worry about me.

Kate: Y ou poor thing! Why don't you make an appointment to see the doctor? She'll give you a check-up; take your temperature and blood pressure, all the usual tests. Janet: Oh, I don't want to make a fuss. It's nothing.

Kate: Y ou're not making a fuss. I am! And I'm coming with you.

Conversation 2

Doctor: What seems to be the problem?

Janet: Well ...

Kate: She hasn't been eating or sleeping properly. She fell asleep in the lecture this morning.

Doctor: Hmm, and what did the lecturer think of that?

Janet: Fortunately, he didn't see me.

Doctor: OK, I'm going to ask you a few questions. How's your social life?

Janet: It's fine. I've got some really nice friends.

Doctor: Have you got a boyfriend?

Janet: No. I don't think my parents would like me to have one while I'm at university.

Doctor: And are you eating properly?

Janet: Y es, I think so.

Kate: She says she's a bit fed up with Western food.

Doctor: OK, so you'd like some home comfort ... what's your favorite food? Janet: Fried rice!

Doctor: Not much fried rice for dinner in college, is there? Um, any worries about your work?

Janet: No. Maybe. Y es, I suppose so.

Doctor: Do you have an essay crisis?

Janet: Y es! I haven't finished all the reading. I don't read as quickly as my friends, so

it takes me a long time to write my essays.

Doctor: OK, Janet. I want you to try and take a few days off. I'll have a word with your tutor and see if he can wait for your essay.

Janet: OK.

Doctor: If you're run down or depressed, you're more likely to catch a cold. Can yo u come back and see me next week? In the meantime, I suggest you try taking some...

Unit 10

Conversation 1

Janet: Hi!

Mark: Hi!

Kate: How are you?

Mark: I'm OK, thanks. How're you guys?

Kate: Good.

Mark: Good ... Oh, that traffic! It's getting worse and worse!

Kate: Tell me about it, it's awful! Don't you worry about your health when you're cycling? All that pollution! Like, what are we breathing in? They really should do something about it!

Mark: I think they intend to — or at least they keep talking about it.

Janet:Shall we go inside?

Mark: Y ea.

...

Mark: Y ou know, it sounds crazy, but it might be an idea to ban cars from the centre of the city. I nearly got hit by a crazy driver earlier.

Kate: Are you OK?

Mark: Y es, I'm fine.

Janet: Would they really do that — ban cars?

Mark: It's possible. It'd sort out the traffic problems. And it would reduce pollution. Janet: I don't think that would be very popular with drivers.

Mark: But it would be safer for cyclists.

Kate: Supposing they introduced a congestion charge?

Mark: Like in London?

Janet: Do you think it would stop people driving into Oxford?

Mark: It'd stop some people.

Kate: They could always extend the Park and Ride scheme.

Janet: It's a good idea.

Kate: If people actually use it.

Mark: Hey, I haven't told you, I'm going to a meeting of the Environmental Action Group tonight.

Kate: Y ou are? Good for you!

Mark: Y es, I'm just concerned about the environment. I've decided to get more active, believe it or not.

Janet: I guess we all should.

Kate: I know, you're right ... Excuse me ...

Conversation 2

Janet: By the way, Mark, how did your meeting go?

Mark: Quite interesting, actually.

Janet: So what did they talk about?

Mark: Uh, recycling, mostly. They have this plan ... that everyone should write to the Council. Ask them to collect more rubbish. Y ou know, like, all the plastic, which they don't do. I'm going to write a letter this evening.

Janet: Really? Y ou know, I think I might go to the next meeting. I've been meaning to do something ... get more active about the environment.

Mark: Y es, we all need to. Global warming, ice caps melting, pollution. Doesn't it worry you?

Janet: Y es, it's really frightening.

Mark: Hey, it would be great if you came to the meeting, Janet. The Action Group really wants to make students more aware of what they can do to help.

Janet: Y ou know, I think everyone knows what they should do. But they don't do it — I don't do it.

Mark: I'm the same. Actually, there's something we could do right now.

Janet: What?

Mark: There's this poster they want to put up all over the university. It tells you easy ways of saving energy. I'm looking at it, here, look ...

Janet: "Use less hot water ..."

Mark: They've asked us to print it out and put it up in college. Y ou want to help me? Janet: Sure! It might be an idea to ask Kate to help.

Mark: Y es, let's ask her. But why don't we print it out — right now?

Janet: Sure.
