Opinion about accommodation:
WOMAN: Hi, good morning, this is Talia from Parrot Bay Travel Agency. Is Robert Goddard there?
MAN: Yes, speaking.
WOMAN: I’m so sorry that I made such an early phone call, and I’m calling to ask a few questions about your most recent vacation - could I have five minutes of your time?
MAN: Sure thing.
WOMAN: Great, thanks. Now, I see here that you visited Melbourne. Was this your first visit to Melbourne?
MAN: No, I have actually been there twice before.
WOMAN: I see. Now, what would you say was your favorite part about Melbourne?
MAN: Well, I did like seeing the exotic wildlife, and there are great sites to see, but I have to say I was most impressed by the amazing weather.
WOMAN: Yeah, the weather there is amazing. Which of the sites listed as part of our official tour did you see, and of those, which was your favorite?
MAN: First I saw the theatre, which was beautifully designed. It was not nearly as cool as the Town Hall though - the building is a huge part of Melbourne’s history. Definitely my favourite. I saw the aquarium too, but wasn’t too impressed.
WOMAN: I see. Yes, people often have great reviews of Town Hall. Now I
would like to ask you about your dining experience. Did you enjoy the food there?
MAN: Absolutely -I loved it!
WOMAN: I’m glad to hear it. Could you tell me a little bit about what you most enjoyed about the food?
MAN: Being such an international city, I loved the variety - I could find any type of food I wanted. Whether I wanted seafood, burgers, or
anything else, you name it and they had it.
WOMAN: Did you drive to Melbourne?
MAN: No, I flew. I thought about going by train, but in the interest of time I decided to go by plane.
WOMAN: Right, I see.
WOMAN: And would you mind telling me whether you are under 20, between the ages of 20 and 40, or older than 40?
MAN: Er, it would be nice if I were still under 20. My vacation probably would have been quite different. Actually though, I just turned 41 last week.
WOMAN: Oh, happy birthday! So did you treat yourself and fly first class?
MAN: Ha! No way. I would love to have a budget that high. I’m more in the mid-range income level. I wasn’t always though - I spent much of my life in a low-income household.
WOMAN: I see. That answers my next question then, of income level. And what was the purpose of this visit?
MAN: I had to go there on business a lot before and decided I would go there for tourism this time.
WOMAN: I see. And what is your occupation?
MAN: I am mainly a computer programmer. I also write for a travel magazine on the side, which is why I visited Melbourne before, but it’s not my main source of income.
WOMAN: I see. Wow, it sounds like you work a lot!
MAN: Yes, I am very busy, which is exactly why I took a nice week-long vacation to Melbourne.
WOMAN: I completely agree. Would you care to comment on your accommodation?
MAN: My hotel was good value. Staying in the city can get really expensive, so it was nice to find such a good price for the location and quality. I’m glad I didn’t end up in some cheap motel in the middle of nowhere.
WOMAN: I’m glad you didn’t either. Well, thank you for taking part in our survey, and I’m glad you enjoyed your vacation!
MAN: No problem. Take care!
