Text of the video

section one you will hear a conversation

between Harry and Andrea two students

who have just finished their final exams

first you have some time to look at

questions one to five

notice that an example has been done for

you this time only the conversation

relating to the example will be played

first hi Andrea how are you feeling now

that exams are over it’s fantastic to

have finished isn’t it and to sleep in

every morning what about you the student

is happy to have finished exams so you

Circle B now let’s begin answer the

questions as you listen you will not

hear the recording a second time listen

carefully to the conversation and answer

questions one to five

hi Andrea how you feeling now that exams

are over it’s fantastic to have finished

isn’t it and to sleep in every morning

what about you well I’ve been catching

up on sleep too but I’ve got a lot to do

before I leave for England perhaps you

could give me some advice I’ve got a lot

of things I can’t possibly take back

with me but I don’t know what to do with

them well it depends on what sort of

things they are and whether you’re

thinking of giving them away or selling

them well almost everything

furniture the fridge and other kitchen

stuff that I bought from the previous

tenant but the new people have already

got what they need so they’re not

interested in buying stuff from me I

can’t afford to give it away but I’m not

sure how to sell it all oh and there are

some clothes and books as well why can’t

you take them the books are really heavy

it’s so expensive if you exceed the

airline baggage allowance and the

clothes just won’t all fit in my

suitcase it’s amazing how much stuff

I’ve accumulated since I’ve been here

anyway I don’t think I’ll need as many

summer clothes in England as I have here

in Australia I see well there are

several alternatives first of all you

could put up notices around the

university about the books you know on

the notice boards in the Student Union

Building and in the Economics Department

anywhere 2nd and 3rd year students will

see them people are always keen to buy

cheap textbooks ok what should I say on

the notices just put the titles authors

and price you want your name of course

and maybe put your phone number on those

little tear off tags that’s a good idea

and what about the furniture you could

try doing the same thing but usually

students are away or summer so they

don’t want to buy furniture now another

place to try might be a secondhand shop

someone from the shop will usually come

around and give you a free quote

and then you can decide but you don’t

usually get much money for that sort of

stuff before you hear the rest of the

conversation you have some time to look

at questions six to ten

another alternative is to put an

advertisement in the Trading Post do you

know that paper it comes out every week

advertising things people want to sell

you have to pay to put the advert in and

then hope people phone give them as much

information as possible and if they’re

interested invite them to come and have

a look the hard part is agreeing on a

price no I haven’t seen the Trading Post

but I should have a look at it and I

could advertise the fridge the microwave

and the furniture but the kitchen stuff

isn’t really that good you know old

cutlery a few pots and pans and some

plates and things what should I do with

them

well another option is to donate the

kitchen things to a charity shop you

know like the Salvation Army or st.

Vincent DePaul why don’t you get a

secondhand shop to give you a quote

first yes I could do that find out how

much they’ll give me and then decide

whether to sell them or give them away

but I’ve still got the clothes a charity

shop will take them too

as long as they’re in good condition and

even though you don’t get any money at

least you know that someone who really

deserves some help has benefited that’s

a good point I’ll advertise the

expensive stuff the furniture and donate

the clothes and kitchen stuff let’s go

and buy a trading post and you can help

me write the advert well actually I’m

interested in buying the fridge and the

microwave depending on the price of

course

ok let’s see how good you are at

bargaining that is the end of section 1

you have half a minute to check your

answers

now turn to section 2 section 2 you will

hear a phone conversation giving

information about a health and fitness

center before you hear the talk you have

some time to look at questions 11 to 16

now listen carefully to the first part

of the talk and answer questions 11 to

16 hello hello is that miss Heidi James

yes good morning miss James I’d like to

take a few minutes of your time to tell

you about the Sevenoaks health and

fitness center which is in your suburb

would that be convenient okay well the

center is not far from you it’s on the

corner of marion street and joel street

and has a large car park it’s open every

day of the week opening on weekdays at 6

a.m. and at 9 a.m. at the weekend its

closes at 9:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and

on Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 2

p.m. we also have childcare Monday to

Saturday from 9:00 in the morning until

midday for a small extra charge so you

can leave your children in safe hands

while you attend one of our classes or

perhaps have a swim or if you just want

to relax in the spa and sauna or steam

room talking of classes we have a very

wide range which are designed to suit

all different levels of fitness and

individual needs

I mentioned the pool just now well in

addition to swimming laps or just

relaxing we also offer aqua aerobic

classes which are 45-minute classes that

use the therapeutic effects of water

this provides a very safe and effective

exercise and is suitable for all fitness

levels as well as being a lot of fun

many people who haven’t been exercising

for a while start in the aqua classes as

two people who need to take care after

hospital surgery for example these

classes are very popular and are

scheduled every weekday Monday to Friday

and on Saturday afternoon

and Sunday morning another very popular

activity in the pool area is learning to

swim and these swimming classes are held

at 4:00 p.m. every weekday and in the

mornings at the weekend by the way

they’re open to both adults and children

of any age before the talk continues you

have some time to look at questions 17

to 20

now as the talk continues answer

questions 17 to 20 now it would take too

much of your time to tell you in detail

about all our programs as we have a very

wide range of activities at different

times

however I’ll just outline some of them

our Super circuit classes are extremely

popular and you get a good aerobic

workout while toning your muscles

they’re easy to learn as you combine

using hydraulic equipment with exercises

guaranteed to give you a good cardio

workout the teachers are very good and

there’s a fun atmosphere and the classes

are very effective in assisting weight

loss relieving stress lowering blood

pressure and generally increasing

fitness oh and I haven’t mentioned our

range of aerobic and step classes of

different types which suit all levels

our specially designed aerobics room

holds over 55 people and our highly

qualified and trained staff can advise

you as to which class might suit to you

we are inviting you to a free one-week

trial period when you can come and try

any of the classes or activities before

you make the decision to join by the way

there is also a large and very

well-equipped gym where we offer free

fitness assessments and you can have an

individual program designed just for you

also the cardiovascular room has the

latest range of machines which help you

burn fat increase your fitness or just

warm up they’re very popular as you can

forget all about the calorie burning by

watching your favorite music videos on

TV while you exercise right now we have

a very special new member joining feet

offer which allows two memberships for

the price of one a real bargain so if

you can bring along a friend who’d like

to get fit as well in time

for summer come along and try us out you

can make the stuff try out some of the

classes for a week absolutely free and

then if you like us sign up for only one

hundred and ten dollars each for six

months thanks for taking the time to

learn about the center and I hope we’ll

see you there soon Heidi I’ll put one of

our brochures in the mail for you right

now

bye for now that is the end of section

two you have half a minute to check your

answers

now turn to section 3 section 3 you will

hear two business studies students

evelyn and mark preparing for a seminar

presentation before you hear the

conversation you have some time to look

at questions 21 to 25

well I think the marketing of food would

be a good topic I read a very

interesting article the other day about

the Canadian food market hmm I suppose

everybody’s interested in food even if

it’s trying not to eat why Canada I know

that’s where you come from but isn’t it

just all North America really no that’s

what I thought this article was

interesting although lots of US

companies are well-established in Canada

and vice-versa there are still subtle

differences between the two markets it

says here the Canadian market is

definitely not a northern clone of the

US I like that and it says that if you

understand these differences it can have

a big impact on successful food

marketing so I know that Canada has a

big french-speaking population in Quebec

is this what they were faring – not only

French and English speakers there are

many different ethnic groups in Canada

it’s really quite multicultural for

example Toronto has large Asian and

Italian populations and Vancouver’s got

a large Asian population – and because

Canada’s population is small these

groups make quite an impact introducing

new styles of cooking so you can see

lots of unfamiliar vegetables and things

in the markets and new restaurants are

opening every day it’s great if you love

trying out new foods as many people do

which kinds of food are becoming popular

well some Asian food I’d say has been

popular for quite a while like Chinese

but now Southeast Asian restaurants are

becoming very fashionable

then there’s Mediterranean of course

such as Greek Italian and so on but

Caribbean and Mexican food is really

taking off among young people these days

so are the supermarket’s starting to

stock the ingredients that are needed to

prepare these foods at home you know all

those unusual condiments and sauces yes

that’s right it’s quite interesting

to the supermarket isn’t it and noticing

how they’re introducing sections for

foods of different nationalities you can

buy quite exotic products locally these

days the article mentioned that 80% of

the Canadian retail market is controlled

by eight major national supermarket

chains so that when they introduce

changes they can happen quite rapidly

okay well how are we going to organise

this seminar then I made some notes on

the trends in the Canadian market about

changing tastes and also patterns for

where food is consumed I thought maybe

we could summarize it into a chart or

table and maybe use the overhead

projector to present it good idea maybe

I could have a look for similar trends

and tastes in Australia and the UK for

comparison let’s have a look at what you

found before the conversation continues

you have some time to look at questions

26 to 30

now as the conversation continues answer

questions 26 to 30

the most significant trend it seemed to

me was that Canadians are definitely

interested in healthy food for example

did you know that salads are the third

most commonly eaten food in Canadian

restaurants really what about organic

food then is that becoming more popular

yes it’s definitely moving into the

mainstream compared to a few years ago

and a recent survey showed that four out

of five shoppers said that they check

the fat and nutritional information on

the packet when they’re deciding what to

buy what other trends did you find out

there’s one change I noticed straight

away when I was home last year in the

meat department you know here the meat

packaging says rump steak or four

quarter chops and so on

well they discovered that most consumers

these days didn’t know what to do with

these roasts and rounds and ribs so the

government approved a new naming system

for cuts of meat which is related to the

required cooking technique what a good

idea I’ve never really understood the

difference between sirloin rump round

and all those names so how many new

categories are there eight there are

three kinds of steak for grilling for

marinating and for simmering and then

there’s what they call quick serve beef

for stir fries I suppose and premium

oven roast oven roast pot roast and

stewing beef it’s a great idea isn’t it

I hope that catches on here I agree any

other trends that you thought were

significant well what’s really

interesting is what the article called

mobile meals in other words more and

more Canadians are eating meals away

from home but not just eating more junk

food they’re projecting a 40% increase

in snack food sales over the next three

years and the growth is coming from

healthy snacks

you know the ones that have less

cholesterol and fat such as muesli bars

health food bar

and those types of products apparently

in the food marketing jargon they’re

called nutritious portable foods which

means healthy snacks the other major

trend is that young people are doing

more of the food shopping these days so

marketing has to be aimed more at them

as well as more conventionally at the

mother thanks Evelyn I think we’ll have

an interesting discussion about these

trends and the comparisons with other

english-speaking countries I’ll see if I

can get some information about them to

compare with yours and meet you on

Friday to put it together see you then

bye that is the end of section 3 you

have half a minute to check your answers

now turn to section four section four

you will hear a talk given by dr.

Miranda James first you have some time

to look at questions 31 to 35

now listen carefully to the talk and

answer questions 31 to 35

good afternoon everybody and welcome to

the first in a series of talks we have

arranged for the overseas Students

Association this semester dr. James has

very kindly agreed to speak to us today

on the topic of public speaking and

judging from the large numbers of you

here it’s clearly a subject of great

interest and relevance dr. James hello

it’s good to see so many of you here and

hopefully what I’m going to tell you

will be useful to you both here at the

University and in your future employment

many people avoid speaking publicly by

which I mean in front of state 10 or

more people not because they lack the

ability but mainly because they lack

confidence which is really only due to

lack of practice today as a consequence

of the influence of television audiences

expect speakers to be relatively brief

and to the point in addition to being

well informed and interesting or

entertaining probably the most important

part of public speaking is what you do

beforehand by which I mean preparation

this includes practical details such as

knowing precisely what your topic is and

exactly how long you are expected to

talk for you should also plan the

content thoroughly a good strategy is to

write out the content as you intend to

say it and then make brief notes

preferably on small cards which you use

to talk from this way you sound more

natural you incorporate pauses while you

look at your notes and you can then look

at your audience while you’re speaking

never read your speech without looking

at the audience I contact is a very

important part of communicating with an

audience so deliberately move your head

and to look around at your audience

pauses are important as most people when

they are nervous tend to rush through

their speech now you have some time to

look at questions 36 to 40

now listen and answer questions 36 to 40

practice speaking slowly this gives you

more time to pronounce your words

correctly it’s always easier for your

audience to listen to someone who’s

speaking is clear and calmly paced so

that they can understand the ideas being

explained and the bigger the group the

more slowly you should speak remember to

project your voice speaking clearly to

the person furthest away from you it’s a

good idea to rehearse and record

yourself pay attention to your

intonation when you listen to yourself

it’s even harder if you’re speaking in a

second language I would imagine but

there’s nothing worse than listening to

a flat monotonous voice so try to vary

your tone and rhythm

this will add meaning to your words

lastly pay attention to both your

posture and your gestures a confident

person stands or sits in a small group

with their head up chin out and

shoulders back try to avoid scratching

or fiddling with your hair or beard or

pens jewelry and so on these movements

can distract and irritate your audience

yet you may be unaware of them yourself

another reason for rehearsing preferably

with feedback from a friend or better

still on video I hope these few tips

will make your experience of speaking in

public a little easier remember practice

makes perfect that is the end of section

4 you now have half a minute to check

your arm
