Review & Explanations:

Section 1: Questions 1-10

Questions 1-3

Complete the form below.

Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER for each answer.

TOTAL INSURANCE INCIDENT REPORT

Example                Answer

Name                    Michael Alexander

Address                  24 Manly Street, 1 , Sydney

Shipping agent        2

Place of origin        China

Date of arrival         3

Reference number   601 ACK

  • 1 Answer: Milperra
    • The keyword concerned in Q1 must be “ your address”

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

    • As the man asks the woman to tell him her particular place, the woman confirms that her address is Milperra and repeats again by spelling it “ M-I-L-P-E-R-R-A”. Therefore, the answer must be “Milperra”.

     

  • 2 Answer: First Class Movers
    • The keywords concerned in Q2 must be “ the shipping” and “the company”.

    • From the question, we can guess that the answer can be a  name of company.

    • As the man asks the woman to tell him the company she used, the woman confirms that the name of that company is “First Class Movers”. Thus, the answer must be “First Class Movers”.

     

  • 3 Answer: 28 November
    • The keywords concerned in Q3 must be “the dates” and “ when the ship arrived ?"

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

    • As the man asks the woman to tell him the date when the ship arrived, we need to listen carefully to give the exact answer. Although MICHAEL mentions “the 11th of October”, it is the date the ship begins not arrives. Then we can listen the phrase “ got to Sydney on the 28th of November”, it is the exact answer for this question.

     

Questions 4-10

Complete the table below.

Write ONE WORD AND/OR A NUMBER for each answer.

cabinet

The 6  of the cabinet is damaged

About $ 10  in total

  • 4 Answer: screen
    • The keywords concerned in Q4 must be “television”, “damage”, “cost to repair isn’t known ”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a part of TV and be damaged.

    • Accordingly, the man mentions 4 things which are damaged and his TV is the first thing considered because its value is very expensive. After the woman says that electrical problems are not coverd in the insurance, the man shows “ The screen has a huge crack” led to be unusable. We can see that “the screen” is the part of TV, the phrase “a huge crack” is similar to the word “ damage”. Therefore, the answer for this question must be “screen”.

  • 5 Answer: bathroom
    • The keywords concerned in Q5 must be “cabinet” and “damage”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a part of the cabinet which is damaged.

    • According to the man tell that “The cabinet from the bathroom was damaged as well”. Therefore, the answer for this question must be the word “bathroom”.

  • 6 Answer: door
    • The keywords concerned in Q6 must be “cabinet” and “damage”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be a part of the cabinet which is damaged

    • The woman asks the man that “what is the extent of the damage ?” , then the man replies that the back and the sides are okay, however he also shows a contrast by using the word “but” in order to talk about “ the door” with a huge hole. “A huge hole” is damage and makes the man feel unhappy. Therefore the answer must be “door”.

     

  • 7 Answer: 140
    • Basing on related information and the keyword concerned in Q7 must be “ cost to repair” the door.

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

    • Although the answer is numbers but we also need to consider carefully to time to give the correct answer. There is 2 prices $125 and $140. However, $125 is in last year. Therefore, the answer must be $140.

  • 8 Answer: leg
    • The keywords concerned in Q8 must be “dining room table” and “split”

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

    • According to the man states that “one leg has completely split down the middle.” The phrase “ split down the middle” is similar to the word “split”. Therefore, the answer must be “leg”.

  • 9 Answer: plates
    • The keywords concerned in Q9 must be “set of china” and “were broken”.

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

    • The man explicitly states that “some plates were broken – six actually”, so the answer for this question must be “plates”.

  • 10 Answer: 60
    • The keywords concerned in Q10 must be “set of china” and “cost to repair”..

    • From the question, we can assume that the cost of repairing the set of china.

    • Firstly, the man mentions $10 but it isn’t the cost of repairing this set, is extra value of each parts of the set increased if the set of china is good. Thus, the answer must be “$60 “.

SECTION 1

JUDY: Good morning. Total insurance. Judy speaking, how may I help you?

MICHAEL: I recently shipped my belongings from overseas back here to Australian and  I took out insurance with your company. Some items were damaged during the move so I need to make a claim. What do I have do?

JUDY: Okay, well first I need to get a few details about this. Can you give me your name please?

MICHAEL: Yes, It’s Michael Alexander.

JUDY: Okay. And your address please?

MICHAEL: My old address or my current one?

JUDY: Your current one.

MICHAEL: It’s 24 Manly Street, Milperra near Sydney.

JUDY: What was the suburb, sorry?

MICHAEL: Milperra. M-I-L-P-E-R-R-A.

JUDY: Right. Now, who was the shipping agent Mr. Alexander?

MICHAEL: You mean the company we used?

JUDY: Yes, the company who packed everything up at the point of  origin.

MICHAEL: Oh, it was…er…First Class Movers.

JUDY: Okay … where were the goods shipped from?

MICHAEL: China,  but the ship came via Singapore and was there for about a week.

JUDY: Don’t worry, all of  that information will be in the documentation. Now, the dates. Do you know when the ship arrived?

MICHAEL: It left on the 11th of October and got to Sydney on the 28th of November.

JUDY: Okay, I need one more thing. There’s a reference number. It should be in the top right-hand corner of the pink from they gave you.

MICHAEL: Let me have a look. I have so many papers. Yes, here it is. It’s 601 ACK.

JUDY: Thanks.

MICHAEL: Yes, well four things actually. I’ll start with the big things. My TV first of all. It’s a large one…very expensive.

JUDY: I need to take down a few details of the actual damage over the phone before you put in a full report. Can you tell me how many items were damaged and what the damage was?

MICHAEL: Well, I had an estimate done on this actually because it is a very special table to us. They quoted us 200 dollars which is really pricey so I hope the insurance will cover the total cost

JUDY: I am assured that will be fine. What was the last item, Mr. Alexander

JUDY: Our insurance doesn’t cover electrical problems.

MICHAEL: It isn’t an electrical problem. The screen has a huge crack in it so it’s unusable.

JUDY: I see. Any idea of the price to repair it?

MICHAEL: No, Well. I don’t think  it can be repaired. It will need a new one.

JUDY: Okay. I’ll make a note of that and we’ll see what we can do. Now, what was the second item?

MICHAEL: The cabinet from the bathroom was damaged as well. It’s lovely cabinet, we use it to keep our towels in.

JUDY: And what is the extent of the damage?

MICHAEL: Well, the back and the sides seem okay but the door has a huge hole in it. It can’t be repaired . I’m really not very happy about it.

JUDY: And how much do you think it will cost to replace it?

MICHAEL: Well, when I bought it last year I paid $125 for it. But the one I’ve seen here in Sydney is a bit more expensive, it’s $140.

JUDY: Right, and what was the third item?

MICHAEL: My dining room table. It’s a lovely table from Indonesia. It must have been very hot inside the container because one leg has completely split down the middle. The top and the other three look okay thank goodness.

JUDY: Any idea of the price to repair it?

MICHAEL: Well, we have a lovely set of china plates and dishes, you know, with matching cups, saucers, the lot. They were all in the one box which must have got dropped because some plates were broken – six actually.

JUDY:  And can you tell me the replacement value of these?

MICHAEL: Well, it’s hard to say because they were part of  a set but they can be up to $10 each as it’s such a good set.

JUDY: Okay, so that would be around $60 altogether?

MICHAEL: Yes, that’s right.

JUDY: And is that all of the items?

MICHAEL: Yes. So what do I have to do now?
