Note: As the woman doesn’t explicitly state that she’d prefer to receive the quotation by post, students need to fully concentrate on the word “the latter”. Consequently, 2 problems arise:
Note: There are 3 prices mentioned here, “$50”, “$39” and “$11”. Any misunderstanding or inattention may result in incorrect answer.
Note: In fact, the woman proceeds to say “of course the stove”. However, she doesn’t confirm that the stove is the most important. Thus, we can only make an assumption that she also wants a stove.
Note: The man suggests adding a coffee maker to her room. However, a coffee maker is only an example that he gives to clarify that the woman can add things to her room, according to her personal needs. Therefore, the coffee maker is not a correct answer.
The woman suggests that she wants to be picked up from the airport. The reason for this is because she is not familiar with the transport system. Therefore, the answer for Q8 must be “airport”.
Note: The man offers to pick them up from the city centre as his company is near the city centre and all vans should be taken from his company. However, the woman declines and suggests another option. Therefore, the answer cannot be “city centre”.
Note: There are 3 numbers mentioned here: 19, 25 and 49. Any misunderstanding or inattention may result in incorrect answer.
Note: The woman explicitly states that the licence in Australia would be better for her, and the man agrees. Therefore, she decides to use the licence issued in Australia. Therefore, America is an incorrect answer.
Hello, First Choice Car Rental! How may I help you?
Oh, good morning. Um, I’m calling for some information about your car renting services. I’m an American, and I will be going on a family holiday to your city from Ohio next month.
OK. no problem. It’s our pleasure to serve you. Could you please tell me your name and contact information first?
I’m Caroline, that’s C-A-R-O-L-I-N-E, and my telephone number is 04196570156.
OK. I’ve got that. And how can I send you our quotation, if you are satisfied with our arrangement? Is email all right, or should I send it by post?
The latter, please! I’m afraid I’d prefer to read it on paper.
That’s no problem.
I’m considering renting a caravan for a week, but I don’t really know the price range for it, since I haven’t rented any car through that method before. I think it should be within my budget of $50.
You know, we have various caravans at different renting prices, according to the class of vehicle, facilities inside, mileage, etc. I’d recommend the ‘Explorer’, taking your budget into consideration, which is of good value and will cost you $39 per day. Is that OK?
Of course, that’s fine for me! I know the ‘Explorer’. That could save me $11 each day! You know a family holiday will be costly. That van is perfect!
I’m glad that you like it. So do you have any particular requirements about your room in the van?
Um, how many beds are there?
One twin bed.
But there are three of us, my mum. daughter and me. So can we add another bed?
For the facilities, I think a kitchen is the most important, and of course the stove.
In our vans, such as ‘Explorer’, there are all the basic bedding materials you need, like pillows and blankets, as well as some equipment for daily life. And many things can be added into your room according to your needs, such as a coffee maker.
Well, I need to have a heater, in case it’ll be cold at night, and a microwave of course.
All right, I’ve taken notes of all these things. Actually, all our vans should be taken from our company, which is not too far from the city centre, so we can pick you up from the centre for free. Is that OK?
Oh, I’m afraid we’d better be picked up from the airport, as we are foreigners in your country and not familiar with the transport system. Is that alright?
Yes, it is no problem. With that comes the information for the insurance. I need the driver’s name and age.
That is my daughter Chris, who is 19, the youngest driver amongst us three.
I’m sorry, but our company only accepts caravan drivers aged 25 or over, according to our regulations. So...
Well, that would be me, Caroline, and I’m 49 years old.
And where was your driving licence issued? I mean the country.
I’ve got a licence in America, but I’ve also got one in Australia which is still valid. Is it better for me to register the local one from your country?
Yes, that might be better. So your registration number is...
