Review & Explanations:

Section 1: Questions 1-10

Questions 1-4

Complete the following information using NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR NUMBERS for each answer.

Surname 1
Given nameGarba
Local address 2
Home addressLagos, Nigeria
Date of birth 3
Course 4
  • 1 Answer: Buwal
    • The keyword concerned in Q1 is “surname”.

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

    • The answer for Q1 is quite noticeable as the student directly tells us his surname, which is Buwal.

    Note: The only obstacle is candidate’s personal confusion between the student’s first name and surname. Nonetheless, as the given name “Garba” has already been filled, the candidate is expected to pass Q1 with ease.

  • 2 Answer: 16 Bridgeway Road
    • The keyword concerned in Q2 should be “local address”.

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

    • The librarian’s question “Could I have your address?” can be seen as a suggestion for the answer’s appearance.

    • The student’s answer is “16 Bridgeway road”. Since no more than three words and/or numbers are allowed in each question, the candidate may get baffled a little bit.

    • However, as the conversation moves on, it is implied that Bridge way is written only as one word, “Bridgeway”. Hence, candidates with good listening skills and average concentration can easily solve the trick.

  • 3 Answer: 25th May 1983
    • The keyword concerned in Q3 is “date of birth”.

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

    • The librarian’s question suggests that the answer will soon appear.

    • The student’s full answer is 25th of May 1983. As the exercise imposes word limit on the candidate’s answers, the final outcome should be written shortly as “25th May 1983”.

  • 4 Answer: M.Sc. Engineering
    • The keyword concerned in Q4 should be “course”.

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

    • The librarian’s question suggests that the answer will soon appear.

    • As the student’s answer is M.Sc. Engineering, it is expected that candidate just needs to fill in the answer similar to what he/she hears without understanding what exactly is M.Sc. Engineering.

Questions 5-7

Answer the following questions using NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS/NUMBERS for each answer.

How many other UK universities have libraries open 24 hours?

5

What size photocopies are available at the library?

6

How many entries are there on the library database?

7

  • 5 Answer: one/1
    • The keyword concerned in Q5 is “24 hours”.

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

    • From the conversation, we are aware that the library, which the student is visiting, is only the second university in the UK to open 24 hours a day. Therefore, it can be implied that apart from this library, there is another library offering 24 hours service, which makes the total number become 2.

    • However, as the question only concerns how many UK universities, apart from this library, open 24 hours, the answer for Q5 should only be 1.

  • 6 Answer: A4
    • The keyword concerned in Q6 is “size photocopies”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be common paper sizes.

    • Based on Q6’s wording, it can be inferred that there are multiple size photocopies available at the library.

    • As the librarian claims that ONLY A4 sized copies are available, we can be confident that A4 is the answer for Q6.

  • 7 Answer: (about) half a million/ 500000
    • The keywords concerned in Q7 are “entry” and “database”.

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

    • As the librarian suggests the database in computers, we can be sure that the answer for Q7 will soon appear.

    • The approximate number “about half a million” goes with our keywordentry”, which matches our expectation. Thus, the answer should be “half a million” or simply “500000”.

Questions 8-10

Complete the following sentences using NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each gap.

It is not necessary to be 8 on the lower floor of the library.

What is on the upper floor of the library? 9

It is not always necessary to make an appointment to use the 10 room.

  • 8 Answer: silent
    • The keywords concerned in Q8 are “not necessary” and “lower floor of the library”.

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

    • From the student’s question, we can imply that the floor he is currently on must be the lower floor of the library, as there are upper floors => The answer must soon appear.

    • From the conversation, it is inferred that the library’s users do not need to be silent on the lower floor of the library. Thus, the answer for Q8 should be “silent”.

    • As the conversation moves on, we are told that users are asked to keep noise to a minimum. However, this information does not affect our answer.

    Note: “It is not necessary to be” and “Is not required to be/to do sth” are interchangeable in this context.

  • 9 Answer: books and reports
    • The keywords concerned in Q9 are “what” and upper floor of the library”.

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

    • As the equivalent keywordupstairs” is heard, we can be sure that the answer must soon appear.

    • From the conversation, it is inferred that books and reports are kept on the upper floor of the library. Thus, the answer for Q9 should be “books and reports”.

  • 10 Answer: video and DVD
    • The keywords concerned in Q10 are “not always necessary”, “appointment”, “use” and “room”.

    • From the question, we can assume that the answer must be nouns which indicate a certain type of room.

    • As the keywordvideo and DVD room” is heard, we can see that “video and DVD” matches our expectation. However, further information is needed.

    • The librarian suggests that USUALLY an appointment needs to be made in advance if the students wish to occupy the video and DVD room. The word “usually” indicates that an appointment is not always necessary to be made in advance. Therefore, the answer for Q10 should be “video and DVD”.

    Note: If you are still uncertain of the answer, the following sentence is there to clarify our choice. From this sentence, we learn that if the room is not in use, students do not need to make an appointment in advance. Therefore, it is not always necessary to make an appointment to use the video and DVD room.

SECTION 1

Student: Good morning. I’d like to join the library, please.

Librarian: Of course. Can I just see your student card ?

Student: Here you are.

Librarian: Thank you. Let me just check – your first name is Garba – G A R B A – and your surname is Buwal – B U W A L.

Student: That’s right.

Librarian: Can I just get some additional information from you for our database? It won’t take long.

Student: Sure.

Librarian: Could I have your address, please?

Student: Here? In Newtown?

Librarian: Yes.

Student: 16 Bridgeway road .

Librarian: Is Bridgeway written as one word?

Student: Yes, it is.

Librarian: Thank you. Which city are you from? Just the city, I don’t need the full address.

Student: I’m from Lagos in Nigeria.

Librarian: And your date of birth?

Student: 25th of May 1983.

Librarian: Which course are you on?

Student: M.Sc. Engineering.

Librarian: Thank you. That’s all the personal data I need. Your library card will be ready tomorrow. Would you like to pick it up here or shall I send it to your department ?

Student: I’ll pick it up here. Could I just ask you a few questions?

Librarian: Of course. What would you like to know?

Student: I heard that the library is open 24 hours a day. Is that correct?

Librarian: It will be from the 1st of October , but now we’re only open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. because this week is only for orientation. There are no formal classes at the university.

Student: I see. It’s very unusual to have a library that’s open 24 hours.

Librarian: We are only the second university in the UK to offer this service. It was instantly popular when we introduced it on the 1st of march last academic year.

Student: What facilities are available here? I missed the orientation, I’m afraid.

Librarian: Well, you can see the three photo copiers over there by the large desk. The one nearest us is a colour copier.

Student: How much does it cost to make copies?

Librarian: Five pence for black and white and 10 pence for colour. Only A4 sized copies are available. On the other side of the room, by the windows, you can see the computers. They have a database of all books, newspapers, magazines and reports in the library – about half a million entries in all.

Student: Are they connected to the Internet?

Librarian: No. We found that too many students wanted to use them.

Besides, it’s cheap and easy for students to get an Internet connection in their accommodation .

Student: Those stairs lead to the rest of the library?

Librarian: Yes. On this floor, we have newspapers and magazines.

Users are not required to be silent in this part of the library, but we do ask that noise be kept to a minimum. Upstairs, there are all the books and reports.

Student: What’s that room at the end there?

Librarian: You mean at the opposite end of the room to my desk? That’s the video and DVD room . We have a small selection of videos and DVDs that students can view, but usually an appointment needs to be made in advance. However, this is not necessary if the room is not in use.

Student: Well, thank you very much.

Librarian: My pleasure.
