  • 1 Answer: Stephen


    • The keyword concerned in Q1 is “first name”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a name.

    • The answer for Q1 is quite noticeable as the man directly tells us his surname, which is Stephen.

    Note: The only obstacle is candidate’s personal confusion between the student’s first name and surname. Nonetheless, the woman had repeated his surname to guarantee so students can easily distinguish the correct answer.

  • 2 Answer: Krockers


    • The keyword concerned in Q1 is “surname”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a name.

    • The answer for Q2 is quite clear as the man spelled his surname, which is K-R-O-C-K-E-R-S

  • 3 Answer: 3rd February 1979/February 3 1979


    • The keyword concerned in Q3 is “date of birth”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a date

    • The woman’s question “can I ask for your exact date of birth, please?” suggests that the answer will soon appear.

    • The student’s full answer is third of February 1979. As the exercise imposes word limit on the candidate’s answers, the final outcome should be written shortly as “3rd February 1979”.

  • 4 Answer: NR4 6JF


    • The keyword concerned in Q4 is “postcode”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a postcode, which in normal form is XX-number-XX

    • When students hear the woman asked “And can you tell me the postcode, please?” we are about to heat the answer.

    • The correct answer is NR4 6JF, some candidates may mistake the S with F – however the man confirmed that it is F for Freddie so students can easily distinguish between two.

  • 5 Answer: 456321


    • The keyword concerned in Q5 is “telephone number”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be number.

    • The woman’s saying “the next thing I need is your telephone number” can be seen as a suggestion for the answer’s appearance.

    • It is implied from the passage that the telephone number is “four five six three two one”. As students’ answer must be in number so it must be “456321

  • 6 Answer: 18


    • The keyword concerned in Q6 is “cost”, “London Day Out”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be number.

    • The answer for Q6 is quite clear as it repeated the keywords “cost” directly so students can realize the correct answer is “18.00

  • 7 Answer: one/1 day


    • The keyword concerned in Q7 is “hook seat”, “in advance”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be time.

    • It is implied from the passage that customers “have to book your seat one day ahead” to use the Super Advance Return. So the correct answer is “one day .

  • 8 Answer: 29.30


    • The keyword concerned in Q8 is “cost”, “Saver”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be number.

    • As the woman answered that “There’s one called the Saver costs twenty-nine thirty” we can be confident that the final answer is “twenty-nine thirty

  • 9 Answer: Open (ticket)


    • The keyword concerned in Q9 is “types of ticket”, “£60”, “no restrictions”

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a name.

    • It is implied from the passage that type of ticket which “don’t need to book ahead (=no restrictions) , costs sixty (=£60)” is “Open ticket” so the correct answer is “Open (ticket)

Question 10

Circle the correct letters A-C.


How much does the student actually pay for his ticket to London?

  • A
  • B
  • C
Answer: C

  • The keyword concerned in Q10 is “how much”, “pay”, “ticket to London”

  • It is implied from the passage that “altogether you’ll have to pay 33 pounds 34” which is £33.34 so option C is correct.

  • Some students may mistake “£7.66” and “£15.34” are the correct answer; however “£7.66” is the discount money while “£15.34” is not the final money that the man has to pay for a ticket to London so A and B is incorrect.

C: Central station, Norwich, Sue Brown speaking. Can I help you?

S: Is that the railway station ?

C: Yes.

S: Er…is there a card that you can buy railway tickets and allows you to get discounts on it?

C: You mean a rail card ? Yes, there are various types. There’s the Young Person’s Railcard and the Senior Citizen’s Railcard, for example.

S: Well, I’d like a Yong Person’s Railcard, but I’m over 21. Is that OK? Do I still qualify ?

C: Yes, you’re eligible from 18 to 25.

S: Great. And how much does it cost?

C: 18 .

S: OK…and can I get it over the phone?

C: Well, I can take your details and process it now over the phone, but you’ll need to come in to collect the card.

S: Yeah, that’s fine.

C: OK, so I just need to take down some details. First of all, can I have your name?

S: Stephen Krockers.

C: OK, so first name Steven…Is that Steven with a “v”?

S: No, with “ph”.

C: Right…and can you give me your surname again?

S: That’s Krockers.

C: Crocker with a “c”?

S: No, I’ll have to spell it for you, K-R-O-C-K-E-R-S.

C: Right, thank you. Now, you said you were over 21-can I ask for your exact date of birth, please?

S: Yes, sure. It’s the third of February.

C: Yes.

S: And the year’s years .

C: 1979. OK, lovely. So the next thing I need to know is your permanent address .

S: Right, I’d better give you my parents’ address then. I’m probably moving soon.

C: Yes, that’ll be fine.

S: It’s 158, Kingwood Close…

C: Is Kingwood one word or two?

S: One.

C: Right.

S: Norwich.

C: And can you tell me the postcode , please?

S: It’s nr .

C: NR4 6JS?

S: No, F for Freddie.

C: Right, and the next thing I need is your telephone number.

S: Do you mean my parents’ number?

C: Yes, the number at your permanent address.

S: OK, it’s Norwich four five six three two one .

C: And are you living at that address now?

S: No, in term-time I’m in lodgings. But like I said, I might be moving soon.

C: Never mind, just give me the address where you’re staying now.

S: Right, it’s 62, Housewalk Terrace, Wakefield.

C: And the postcode?

S: wf1 .

C: Right,that’s fine.

S: And I want to get a ticket…can I do that now, and get the discount, or do I have to wait until the card’s ready?

C: No, you can book the ticket now, and collect it at the same time as you get the card.

S: OK. So I want a return ticket to London next week how much will that cost?

C: Well, it depends on what sort of ticket you get. There are four different kinds… I’ll go through them for you. Right, the cheapest one’s the London Day Out. That’s good if you’re just going away for the day…it includes some bus and tube travel in London, but you have to travel outside peak hours. That costs £18.00.

S: OK…

C: Now, the next one’s called the Super advance Return. You can travel on any train with that, but you have to book vour seat one day ahead. Actually it’s better to book earlier if you can, because there’s only a limited number of tickets.

S: OK..and how much is that?

C: It’s £23.

S: That doesn’t sound too bad. What about the other types of tickets?

C: They’re more expensive . There’s one called the Saver which again you can use on most trains outside peak hours, that’s twenty nine thirty . But you don’t need to buy it in advance, you can get it on the day you travel.

S: Mmm, that’s a bit expensive.

C: And finally, there’s the Open ticket, and with that you can travel on any train on any day of the week, and you don’t need to book ahead, but that costs sixty .

S: £60! Right, I’ll have a Super Advance. Now, I’d like to leave next Friday morning on the 8:30 train and come back on Sunday at 10 p.m. And… you said that usually costs £23?

C: That’s right.

S: So how much do I save with the rail covered ?

C: You get a third off £23 is £7.66. so you’ll pay £15.34 . But then this time you have to pay for the railcard too…that’s too that's 15.34 plus 18.00…so altogether you’ll have to pay 33 pounds 34 .

S: And when can I collect them?

C: They’ll be ready by wednesday , they should be at the bookings office after about 10:00 a.m.

S: Oh…I don’t know if I can make it on Wednesday. You can’t post them, can you?

C: No, you have to collect your railcard in person and sign it, and I nearly forgot to tell you, you need a passport sized photograph for it. If you don’t have one, there’s a machine on the station.

S: No, I think I’ve got one somewhere. I needed some for my college application . I think I had one left over.

C: Good. So is there anything else?

S: No, that’s great. Thanks a lot. Bye!

C: Goodbye.
