A. Telephone Conversation 1.
Instructor: Henry wants tickets for Romeo and Juliet so he tries to telephone the box of office. First he hears: (wrong number tone). He has dialed the wrong number. Then he tries again. (busy tone) Henry is fed up but he must get some tickets. He tries again and finally, he gets through.
(sound of phone ringing, receiver picked up) Clerk: Cambridge Theatre. Box Office.
Henry: Have you got any tickets for Romeo and Juliet for this Saturday evening?’ Clerk: Which performance? 5 pm or 8:30 pm?
Henry: 8:30 pm please.
Clerk: Sorry, that performance is sold out.
Henry: Well, have you got any tickets for the 5 pm performance?
Clerk: Yes, we have tickets at 4.50 pounds, 5.50 pounds and 6 pounds. Henry: I’d like to reserve two seats at 4.50 pounds, please.
Clerk: Right. That’s two tickets at 4.50 pounds. Saturday, 5 pm performance. What’s the name please?
Henry: Bishop. Henry Bishop.
Clerk: Thank you. You’ll collect the tickets before 3 pm on Saturday, won’t you? Henry: Yes, of course. Thank you. Goodbye.
B. Telephone Conversation 2:
Clara: That number has been engaged for ages. Nobody can be that popular. I wonder if her number has been changed. I think I’ll try again.
(Sound of dialing and ringing tone.) Sue: 3346791.
Clara: Is that you, Sue? Sue: Who’s calling?
C1ara: This is Clara. Clara Ferguson. Don’t you remember me?
Sue: Clara! Of course I remember you. How are you? I haven’t heard from you for at least two years. What are you doing?
Clara: Nothing very exciting. That’s one reason I’m ringing. I need some advice. Sue: Advice. Hmm. That’s a good one. I’ve just been sacked.
Clara: There are the pips. Hang on, Sue.
Clara: What do you mean … you’ve just been sacked? Sue, you’re the most successful woman I know.
Sue: That’s probably why I’ve been sacked. But let’s talk about you. You said you needed some advice.
Clara: I certainly do. I wanted to ask you about interviews. Have you had a lot of them? Sue: Yes, I have. Too many.
Clara: So, could you tell me the sort of questions you’re usually asked?
Sue: Let me think. The first ten questions are almost always the same. I call them the
‘whys’, ‘hows’ and ‘wheres’. (Sound of pips.)
Clara: Not again. Don’t go away, Sue. I’ve got one more coin. Clara: Are you there, Sue?
Sue: Yes, I’m still here.
Clara: Sorry, I didn’t understand what you were telling me. Could you repeat it? Sue: It’s very boring, but here you are:
I’m always asked:
Why I want to leave my present job? Why I am interested in the new job? How I intend to get to work?
How long I intend to stay in the job? Where I live?
Where I went to school?
How much I’m paid in my present job?
How much I expect to be paid in the new job? Oh yes. I’m always asked if I’m married. (Sound of pips.)
Clara: That’s it, Sue. No more coins. I’ll write to you soon … and many thanks.
I am not going out with George again. Last week he invited me to go to a football match. I do not like football, so it was silly of me to say yes. We did not have seats, so we had to stand for two hours in the rain. I was cold and wet and I could not see a thing. So I asked George to take me home. He got very angry and said some very unpleasant things.
Last week the sun shone and it got quite hot. I decided to put on my light grey summer trousers. But I got a shock. I could not put them on. They were too small. It is possible that they got smaller during the winter, but I do not think so. I am afraid I got bigger. So I am going to eat less and I am going to take more exercise. I am definitely going to lose some weight.
