Answer: C
  • The keywords concerned in Q1 must be “accommodation” and “originally built as”.

  • According to the advisor, the building was constructed in the middle of the 18th century. The original owner of this building, the family of Thomas, used to occupy this building as their house. In other words, the accommodation was originally built as private house. Therefore, the correct answer must be C.

  • A

In other words, the accommodation was originally built as private house. Therefore, the correct answer must be C.

    • According to the advisor, the Thomas House doesn’t have a garage, as they don’t provide parking lot to students. Therefore, the correct answer must be option E.

    • Even though the advisor says that the Thomas House has a leisure room, she still directly tells the student that this house doesn’t have a computer room (of course leisure room and computer room are different things). She also goes on to explain that there is a balcony available. Therefore, option B is incorrect and option C is correct.

    Note: Some students may mistakenly believe that the correct answer must be “11 pm”. However, as we listen carefully, 11 pm is the closing time of the front door, not the opening time. Therefore, it is not the correct answer.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a noun or a noun phrase.

SECTION 1

You will hear a conversation about accommodation rules.

Advisor: Good morning, everyone. I’m your accommodation advisor.

Well, firstly welcome to Thomas House which is one of the most popular accommodations in our university. I will give you an introduction about the house and answer your questions. As you know, the building was constructed in the middle of the 18th century and was used by the family of Thomas. That’s of course how the house and university got his name. We repaired it and added some new and modern facilities last year..

Student: Excuse me, advisor.

Advisor: Yes?

Student: What kind of facilities are there in Thomas House?

Advisor: There are three floors. A front fall and a dining room are on the ground floor.

Student: Does the house have a garden?

Advisor: Of course.

Student:       And a garage?

Advisor:       No, we don’t provide parking lot to students.

Student:       OK.

Advisor:       A small Gym with some new equipment is on the second floor.

Student:       Does it have a computer room?

Advisor:       No. I mean a leisure room on the second floor and you can find a comfortable land with big balcony on the same floor.

Student:       How about bedroom and bathroom?

Advisor:       They are both on the top.

Student:       How many students are there in one flat?

Advisor:       Four to six.

Student:       I wonder if I have to share a bathroom with others.

Advisor:       No. We provide every student a bedroom and bathroom.

Student:       Great.

Advisor: There are some rules in Thomas House. Firstly, smoking is not allowed in both your bedroom and bathroom.

Student: Does the house have a smoking section ?

Advisor: No. You can smoke on balcony or outside the house.

Student: Advisor, is there a laundry in the house?

Advisor: Of course. Laundry room is located on the right corner of the second floor.

Student: Sure.

Advisor: But please do not use it after 11 o'clock.

Student: Is it free to us?

Advisor: In fact, you don’t need to pay any bills which are included in your accommodation fee. But you have to pay laundry fee.

Student: How much?

Advisor: We offer two coin-operated washing machines. The large one is two pounds fifty and the small one is one pound sixty.

Student: If the lounge has a time restriction?

Advisor: Definitely. We ask all students to keep quiet and do not make noise after 11 o’clock.

Student:       We know there is a backyard in the house.

Advisor:       Yes.

Student:       If we can park our car there?

Advisor:       No. We do not allow parking in our yard.

Student: OK. Could we invite some friends to hold a party in the garden or lounge?

Advisor: We only allow party on weekends.

Student: Fine.

Advisor: The last rule is to pay attention to the opening time of the Front Hall. The door is locked at 11 p.m. and opened again at 6 a.m. in the next morning. Remember to take the front door key when you go out early or come back late.

Student: How could we get the front door key?

Advisor: You can go to residents office building and get your key in Room 101.

Student: Sure.

Advisor: Well, any questions?
