Part 3

Questions 32-34 refer to the following conversation.

W   Hey, John. Do you know where the budget file is? I can’t find it.

M    No, Jean, I have no idea. Why don’t you ask Patrick?

W   Patrick’s out of town right now, and I am sure he doesn’t have it. Hmm, are you sure it’s not in your office?

M    Well, I’ll check once more, but I’ll probably be giving you the same answer.

Questions 35-37 refer to the following conversation.

W   Look at all the robotics we are using on the manufacturing assembly line. They are all automatically operated.

M    I can see. It’s really impressive. You know, factories rarely use such high-quality devices these days.

W   Yes. So I need to find the right system to handle all the equipment we’ve installed. The system we’re currently using needs to be upgraded. How much would it cost to do business with your company?

Questions 38-40 refer to the following conversation.

M    Mandy, Mr. Ransh just called me. He sounded pretty upset about not receiving any design blueprints yet. You’d better send him something soon.

W   Really? That’s weird. I sent him a blueprint by e-mail last week!

M    Hmm. Are you sure? Maybe you sent it to the wrong e-mail address.

W   No. I have his correct address saved in my computer directory. Well, I should send him a blueprint again right away anyway.

Questions 41-43 refer to the following conversation.

M    Long time no see, Janice. Did you like Greece?

W   Yeah, it was just great. My friends and I stayed at a cozy hotel in Athens for three weeks.

M    Oh, I remember last year when I visited Athens for business. I had a lot of free time so I enjoyed sightseeing. What about you?

W   Just for the first week. We mostly spent our time walking, lying, and resting on the beach near the hotel. We sometimes tried out new restaurants, too.

Questions 44-46 refer to the following conversation.

W   Everyone’s here now. Is dinner ready to be served?

M    I’m afraid there has been some miscommunications in the schedule. I just spoke with the caterer on the phone, and he thought the food was to be ready by 8 o’clock.

W   Eight? But we told them dinner would be at 6:30. They must have mistaken it for the presentation time. Oh well, I guess we’ll have to change our plans and watch the presentation first.

Questions 47-49 refer to the following conversation.

W   The documents that I was planning to use at the presentation are missing. I’m sure I brought them with me this morning.

M    Look in your bag again. They are probably somewhere among your other papers.

W   No, they’re not. I’ve already looked three times. Will you go first and get the conference room ready for the meeting? Let me just go back to my office and make some copies.

Questions 50-52 refer to the following conversation.

M    I had a good look at your resume and cover letter, Ms. Landers. And I am willing to offer you a position as a sales representative at lndie Industries.

W   Oh, thank you Mr. Carper. I am grateful to accept your offer. I really wanted this opportunity to use my background in sales. I applied right away after seeing the newspaper advertisement for the job.

M    Well, you sure made a great choice there. Now I’ll introduce you to Ms. Clarkson in the Personnel Department for some papers you need to fill out. When do you think you can start working?

W   I’ll be ready in about two weeks.

Questions 53-55 refer to the following conversation with three speakers.

M1   Lauri, what a surprise! I didn’t know you were coming.

W     Oh, Hi! Long time no see!

M2   I was told that you moved from New York to London.

W     Right! I have lived in London for 10 years, so, I wasn’t going to, but I changed my mind. I just couldn’t get our 15th reunion out of my mind.

M1   Isn’t it so great to be back here after all these years?

M2   Yeah, it’s a beautiful campus. I can’t believe it’s already been 15 years since we graduated.

M1   Do you remember when we won the first prize at the student chess tournament?

W     How can I forget that? It was one of the best moments in my college life.

Questions 56-58 refer to the following conversation.

M    Hi, Kimmy. Do you have a minute to talk about the Technology Workshop?

W   I have a weekly meeting soon, but go ahead.

M    Actually, I need to discuss the refreshments for the workshop you’re holding next Friday. You asked me to call you back before I confirm the order.

W   Right. I want to make sure everything is perfect. As I told you, we expect 20 participants and will need some coffee, juice, and bagels for breakfast. As for lunch, we will need sandwiches and diet Coke. Everything’s clear, right?

M    Yes, perfect. I’ll place the order right away. The cost will be approximately 100 dollars.

W   Okay. Oh, I want one more thing. Let’s add some fruit to the lunch menu.

Questions 59-61 refer to the following conversation.

W   Mr. Heath, I want to talk about scheduling interviews for the web-design position.

M    Oh, yes. I’ll be at work only on Wednesday and Thursday next week, because I will be on a business trip.

W   Hmm, I have a conference to attend on Wednesday, so I don’t think I’ll be at the office that day.

M    Well, what about doing the interviews on Thursday before I leave?

W   Okay. I guess only Thursday works for both of us. We really need to hire someone as quickly as possible.

M    Right, it’s urgent. The clients are starting to complain about the old designs of our website.

Questions 62 through 64 refer to the following conversation and map.

M    Michiko, the monthly sales meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, right? What time is it scheduled for?

W   It’s at the usual time, 1 o’clock, but remember we’re at a different location this month. The Royal Hotel didn’t have any private rooms available, so we reserved a space at the Chinese restaurant near the city hall.

M    Great, I love Chinese food and I hope they’ll give us a big room. Actually, I like the service and food at the Italian restaurant next to the cafe, but I was disappointed with the tiny room they gave us last month.

W   That’s right. I guess they didn’t know how much our sales department’s grown. See you tomorrow.

Questions 65 through 67 refer to the following conversation and form.

W    Frank, did you order some clothes? I just received this box from Macy’s but I haven’t placed any orders.

M    Yes, thanks. I ordered a few things the day before yesterday. I needed some suits and neckties to wear for my presentations and banquet next week.

W    Oh, okay. I guess the delivery person was confused since you put the department in the order instead of your own name.

M    Oh, did I? I was in a real hurry. I won’t forget to put my name next time.

Questions 68 through 70 refer to the following conversation and label.

M    I’m looking for healthy foods. Last week, I went to hospital and my doctor advised me to lose weight. At least, I should lose 20 pounds.

W    If you want to lose weight, you’ll need to eat less and exercise more. When you burn 500 more calories than you eat everyday for a week, you can lose about 1-2 pounds.

M    I know. Limiting salt and sugar may also help lose more weight. I’m trying to change my diet. Look at this. How about this canned chicken soup?

W    Oh, no! That’s almost 2 grams. Why don’t you buy some fresh fruits and vegetables?

Part 4

Questions 71-73 refer to the following the following announcement.

We will probably arrive at the top around noon where we will have lunch. I ask earnestly that you respect the environment and do not toss any garbage along the trail.
