1. What did the students agree to give their teacher as a gift?
A: Have you heard? Mrs. Jade is leaving our school. We should give her a goodbye gift.
B: Sure, roses or a box of chocolates would be nice.
A: I’d rather give her something that would last.
B: Okay, we could always buy her a mug with, let’s say, a heart on it. But it’s not a very original idea. How about a book of photographs? She’d have memories of her time in our school.
A: It would be a great gift. However, it would take time to make and Mrs. Jade is leaving next week. You know, I don’t think the mug is such a bad idea. I’ve seen a nice one in a florist shop where my mom buys flowers.
B: Alright, agreed. Still, it’s a pity we don’t have enough time to make the book.
2. What does Peter’s wife Kate look like now?
A: Hello Peter. I haven’t seen you at the tennis court for ages! I heard you got married, congratulations!
B: Thanks, you can meet my wife Kate after she finishes playing tennis with her twin sister.
A: Twin sister? That sounds interesting.
B: Well, it was always rather a problem to tell who was who on the courts, as they both had long blond hair and used to wear white dresses. I’ve asked Kate many times to wear a dark dress instead, but she always wears a white one. Fortunately, Kate’s sister had her hair cut short some time ago. I was surprised how different from Kate she looks now, with short hair.
A: So, your wife is the blonde lady in the white dress over there on court number two?
B: No, they are playing on court number one. Besides, Kate’s changed her hair colour recently. I’d say dark suits her better than blond hair.
A: Look, she’s coming. Can you introduce us?
3. What did Jane do for most of her holiday in Greece?
A: Hello Jane, back home from Greece? How was the holiday?
B: I went there to do some hiking with my friends, but when we got there, it was too hot to explore the countryside on foot that day. So I decided to go have a swim in the sea first, and then go sailing. But the moment I walked on to the beach, I stepped on something sharp and cut my foot. So, I had to forget about hiking. Although I had to avoid swimming with the bandage on my foot, I could still go sailing. But when I wanted to rent a boat, they were all booked for the rest of our stay. There was nothing else left for me to do for the rest of my holiday. I could only lay on the beach and watch the others swimming. At least I listened to my friends’ hiking stories in the evenings.
4. Where does Dorothy want to pick up Terry today?
Hi Terry, this is Dorothy. I’m calling to tell you that our yoga class won’t take place in the sports centre tonight. The yoga teacher called to say that there are some technical problems. We should meet him in the small gym that we used last year. It’s the one opposite our favourite café. So, I won’t be able to pick you up at the bookshop as we agreed before. The bookshop is too far from the gym. See, I’m having my hair cut before the class, so it would be great if you could wait for me somewhere on the way from the hairdresser’s to the gym at 4:30. Let’s say at the bus stop? It’s not far from your office. I’ll pick you up there and drive us to the gym. Text me back if you agree. Thanks, bye!

A: Hi Tom, how are you? You look sad.
B: Hi Paula, I am. I have some news.
A: About your driving test? I’m sure you passed.
B: Well, look at what I’m doing. I’m studying it again. I failed the test.
A: I thought it wasn’t possible for you to fail! Well, anyway, it’s not a surprise then, to see you sad.
B: I really need to pass it this time. You know, before the test I was trying to learn the driving theory online. I paid for an online course and I failed. So, I thought returning to the good old paper textbook and pencil would help. And it does! I can concentrate better now.
A: I’ve never liked using modern technologies while studying. Do you know what I did before my driving test? Just for fun, I drew pictures to remember some complicated traffic situations. The truth is, I didn’t have to study hard for the test and I passed the first time. My dad was wrong when he warned me that the test would be difficult for me.
B: Lucky you! I can’t wait to have a driving license. Although my brother can take me anywhere I need, which is great. I try to avoid riding with him. While he feels safe in his car, I don’t. Especially when he drives fast. Poor drivers like him should drive slowly. When he gets more experienced, he could become a good driver. Anyway, do you still have those pictures you used for studying?
A: Sure, I drew 20 pictures of the most complicated traffic situations. The drawings aren’t great but the situations are clear in them. Or if you want professional drawings, I can lend you a book with 50 pictures of basic traffic situations.
B: Well, it would be great if I could borrow all the pictures you drew yourself. I’m sure that would be enough. I can solve most of the basic situations, but I need to study the complicated ones more.
A: Alright, and don’t forget you are not only learning it for the test, you’ll actually need the knowledge if you don’t want to be a danger when you drive. However, I’m sure you won’t be one of those crazy drivers and you’ll pay attention to all the important things on the road. Anyway, do you have a car to drive?
B: Well, I wasn’t successful in getting a loan from the bank, so I asked my uncle to lend me some money for my first car. What surprised me was his offer to let me use his old car instead of lending me money. As I couldn’t borrow the money from anyone else, I had to accept his offer. So yes, I do have a car to drive.
A: Sounds good! Well, give me a call after the test and we’ll go for a ride.
B: Sure, you’ll be the first to know. My dad promised to drive me to my uncle’s place to pick up the car. I’ll take him for a ride and then I’ll come pick you up, agreed?
A: Of course, good luck Tom!

Good morning, welcome to Kruger National Park. Before we leave, let me tell you some facts about the park. Its history goes back to the 1920s. The park officially became a national park in 1926. And in the following year, in 1927, visitors could enter the park for the first time. By the end of 1928, the number of tourists entering the park increased 50 times. Although most tourists visit the park in August, now – in November – it is, in my opinion, the best time of the year to be here, when the weather is great for taking photos. Of course, the biggest attraction here is the wild animals. We’re proud that their numbers are increasing year by year in our park. Last year, for example, the elephants’ population here reached 12 987. Which is 655 more than the year before. On our tour today you’ll see these animals. I’ll take you to a special area, called Sagie, spelled S-A-G-I-E, where you can ride on the backs of elephants. Our lunch break is planned at a picnic site by Crocodile River. We will get to the picnic site at 11:45 and will be leaving the site at 1:30, because we’ve booked a guided visit of the Stevenson-Hamilton Centre for 2 o’clock. The centre is named after James Stevenson-Hamilton, the first manager of the park. The centre serves as a library, but apart from borrowing books, you can also explore a small museum there. I believe you’ll learn a lot about the park there. On our way back to the camp, we’ll stop at a bridge from which you can take the best photographs of lions in the park. Okay, we’ll be going in two cars. Now, as there are 10 of you going on the tour, you won’t take the white cars, you’ll go in the green ones instead. They are bigger. Let me remind you that parents with children sit in the front.

21. What is the man complaining about?
A: Josh, let’s go to the steak restaurant for dinner today.
B: Well, if you really want to. I’d rather go somewhere else.
A: Come on! I know it’s not the cheapest restaurant but we can afford it sometimes.
B: I don’t mind the price. Although it’s a bit expensive, the burgers and steaks are definitely worth the money.
A: Right. And it’s just around the corner.
B: And right on the main street. To hear traffic all the time while eating is rather annoying. I am even sorry for the staff that must be there all day long. I’m surprised that despite such working conditions they are still so kind to their customers. Anyway, if you insist, let’s go there.
22. What did the man not do?
Last week, I lost all my photos of the place where I spent my childhood. I had them in my laptop which I accidentally dropped and destroyed. Unfortunately, the whole area in which I used to live and play as a child doesn’t exist anymore. It was rebuilt some time ago. I felt awful and decided to post a comment about my sadness on a social network. To my surprise, I got an answer from a friend. He suggested checking the internet street view service, which saves photos of places on their sites for some time. And you know what? I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found 10 pictures of our old house there. And other houses in the neighbourhood too. Some people complain about the street view service for privacy reasons, but I just love it.
23. How did the woman feel during the storm yesterday?
A: So, where were you, Susan, during the storm yesterday?
B: Actually, I was just about to go to the club when it started raining. Wouldn’t that make you angry too? Well, someone who was not upset was my grandpa. He was actually very happy about the rain. See, after two weeks without rain, his vegetable garden really needed it. But to be honest, I didn’t care about that yesterday. Apart from having to stay at home, I also had to take care of my little sister Janie, because she was shaking with fear. I don’t see any reason to be afraid of a storm when you are inside the house. But anyway, I held my sister in my arms and she was grateful. I would be grateful too if my grandpa had helped me with her. But he was at the window, excited. He was watching the storm and didn’t even notice how scared Janie was. He was like a little child. At least someone was happy.
24. What time did the meeting start today?
A: Jim, what happened? You missed the first part of the meeting today.
B: I’m sorry, I forgot that today’s meeting wasn’t starting at the usual time. When I received your message at 7:15 to remind me of the time change, I was still in bed. I managed to catch the bus at 7:45 but it takes 30 minutes to get here.
A: Okay. You’ll have to get used to getting up earlier than 7:15, because starting the meeting at 7:45 instead of 8:45 actually worked well today, so we will keep this earlier time for future meetings. Everybody has agreed on the change.
B: But why? You know that most people arrive at work at 8:30, not earlier.
A: Jim, the problem is that if we start the meeting at 8:45, we wouldn’t have enough time to discuss everything. Don’t you see?
