You will hear two friends talking outside an examination room about working over the vacation period.
First, look at Questions 1 to 5.
You will see that there is an example already done for you. For this question only the conversation relating to the example will be played first.
Crystal: Hi Peter - I’m so pleased that exam’s over!
Peter: Me too Crystal - I’m exhausted. I stayed up late studying last night and then got up early this morning.
Crystal: Well, you can rest now - we’re on holidays for three glorious weeks.
Peter said he stayed up late studying last night, so C is the correct answer.
Now we shall begin. You should answer the questions as you listen because you will not hear the recording a second time.
Now listen carefully and answer Questions 1 to 5.
Crystal: Hi Peter - I’m so pleased that exam's over!
Peter: Me too Crystal - I'm exhausted. I stayed up late last night studying and then got up early this morning.
Crystal: Well, you can rest now - we're on holidays for three glorious weeks.
Peter: That is a nice thought. Unfortunately though, I’m broke and if I'm going to have enough money to get through next semester, I'll have to get a job over the holidays.
Crystal: Yes, I've been thinking the same thing myself. As much as I'd like to go home to see my family, I think I’ll have to get a job as well. Have you got any ideas or contacts?
Peter: Well, as a matter of fact, I’m going to go to the Student Employment Office. Do you want to come with me?
Crystal: Sure, if you don’t mind. Where is it?
Peter: Let me see - (TAKES OUT PAPER) - I’ve got a map here of the campus. It's up here in Y Block.
Crystal: Oh, boy - we're a long way away from there! We’ve just come out of N Block - here we are here.
Peter: Yes, N Block. Well, we can turn right and follow Circular Drive around but that's the long way. What’s the building opposite us?
Crystal: That's the International Centre -I learnt English there before starting my Bachelor of Business.
Peter: Oh right - I see, it says I Block. I guess I stands for International. Well, let’s cross Circular Drive and walk up to the right -
Crystal: No, there’s lots of trees and gardens there - we'd better go to the left of the building. You can’t get through otherwise.
Peter: OK - we'll head past D Block, go between B and C Blocks and then across the sports fields to Y Block.
Crystal: OK, but I'm really hungry. How about going to the student canteen before we get to Y Block? It's just on the other side of A Block - near the main entrance.
Peter: Good idea - I didn't have breakfast this morning. I'm starving! Let's go.
Peter and Crystal arrive at the Student Employment Office and the receptionist meets them.
As you listen to the rest of the conversation., answer Questions 6 to 1.0.
Before the conversation continues, read Questions 6 to 10.
Receptionist: Good morning - can I help you?
Peter: Good morning - yes, we’d both like to find some vacation work.
Receptionist: Right - for this vacation period?
Peter & Crystal: Yes. Mm - hmm.
Receptionist: Have you registered with us?
Peter & Crystal: No.
Receptionist: Oh - you have left it a bit late. Students usually register with us around midsemester.
Peter: - Really?
Receptionist: Yes, but never mind. You will need to register, but before you do that, you’ll need to be interviewed by one of our consultants.
Peter: Oh -I thought you would just give us a list of job vacancies and we would contact those places directly.
Receptionist: No, we don’t give out contacts until after you've been interviewed and registered.
Peter: I see.
Receptionist: Would you like to make an appointment to have an interview?
Peter & Crystal: Yes, please. Yes - as soon as possible.
Receptionist: Let me see - today’s Thursday 11th. Our consultants are here tomorrow but they are going on a Staff In-service from next Monday to Wednesday. So, it's either Friday - that's tomorrow or next Thursday.
Peter: Couldn’t we see one of them this afternoon?
Receptionist: No, they are fully booked I’m afraid. End of semester is the busiest time for job placements, as you can imagine. There has been a cancellation for tomorrow morning at 9:30 or you can come after 2 tomorrow afternoon.
Peter: Can we be interviewed together?
Receptionist: Yes, I’m sure that would be OK.
Peter: Crystal, is 9:30 all right with you?
Crystal: Yes that suits me. Actually, I’m going to the dentist tomorrow - let me check the time. (LOOKS UP DIARY) Hang on, the dentist is at 9, so could we make it at 2?
Peter: No problem.
Receptionist: OK - that's for 2 o'clock then. What's your surname?
Peter: Pastel. P-A-S-T-E-L. Peter’s my first name.
Receptionist: Thanks - and yours?
Crystal: My surname’s Lu. L-U. My first name's Crystal - that’s C - R - Y - S - T - A - L.
Receptionist: Right - a contact phone number please?
Peter: My mobile is 0412 987 35.
Receptionist: Thank you and I'll need your Student Number as well, so I can access your files.
Peter: Mine is B (for Business) 7 2 3 4 double 6.
Crystal: And mine is B (for Business as well) I 6 9 double zero, double 1.
Receptionist: That’s BI69 double 0, double 1 for you Peter and...
Crystal & Peter: No, that's mine - Wrong way around.
Receptionist: Oops! - it's BI69 double zero, double 1 for Crystal, and B7234 double 6 for Peter. I'll just put an arrow next to your names to show what I've done wrong! Right then -see you both.
Peter & Crystal: Bye. Thanks a lot.
