M-Cn: Thanks for calling Riverside Auto Repair. How can I help you?
W-Br: Hi. I got my car repaired last week and used your shuttle service to get a ride back to my office. Can you tell me why there's a service charge on my invoice for using the shuttle? I've never had to pay that before.
M-Cn: Yes, unfortunately the cost of auto fuel has risen quite a bit, so the company now requires us to charge for the shuttle.
W-Br: Well, I wasn't expecting that.
M-Cn: I'm sorry we didn't inform you of this ahead of time. I'll waive the fee now, but please be aware that you'll have to pay for rides in the future.
Câu 1: Why is the woman calling?
Câu 2: According to the man, what has recently changed?
Câu 3: What does the man agree to do?
W-Am: In sports news, our own Easton Jaguars won today's soccer match against the Portville Lions. Here to tell us about the game is Aaron Park, the goalkeeper for the Jaguars. Mr. Parker, thank for joining us
M-Au: Thanks for having me. Today's game was challenging - it started to rain early on, and the storm didn't let up for nearly an hour. There were several times when we lost control of the ball because the field was so wet and slippery.
W-Am: Well, you all played really well despite the weather. Now, it's time for a commercial break, but stay tuned - we'll soon be back with Aaron Parker to talk about the game's most exciting moments.
Câu 4: What is the topic of the conversation?
Câu 5: What caused a problem?
Câu 6: What will the listeners hear next?
W-Br: Hi Paul, I know we were planning to work at the trade show together next week, but something has come up. Do you think you could find someone else to go in my place?
M-Cn: Sure, that can probably be arranged. Can I ask why you're unable to go?
W-Br: My department recently hired several new people, and I want to be here to make sure that their training goes smoothly
M-Cn: I understand. I'll call Ramona and ask her if she'd be able to attend the show instead
Câu 7: What does the woman notify the man about?
Câu 8: According to the woman, what recently happened in her department?
Câu 9: What does the man say he will do next?
M-Au: I'd like to book two tickets for tonight's city bus tour
W-Am: Sure, we still have seats on the bus. This tour will stop at five different sites and end up the Seven Stars Restaurant
M-Au: Oh. That sounds good. A friend of mine is visiting from out of town. He'll like that
W-Am: Yes, but we have to put in the order for the restaurant in advance. You have a choice between the chicken with vegetables or the beef with rice
M-Au: We'll both have the chicken
W-Am: Here are your tickets. And by the way, we're expecting clear skies tonight. You'll definitely want to bring your camera. You won't want to miss taking photos of the city's skyline
Câu 10: What does the man want to do?
Câu 11: What is the man asked to choose?
Câu 12: What does the woman suggest doing?
M-Cn: Hi, Siba. Do you need help taking those files up to our office? It looks like you have your hands full
W-Br: If you don't mind, that'd be great. The elevator is still out of order, so we'll have to use the stairs
M-Cn: But that broke last week - the maintenance crew should have repaired that by now
W-Br: Well, apparently a piece of hardware had to be custom made
M-Cn: Ah, I see. Well, at least our office is only on the second floor, so we don't have to climb too many stairs
W-Br: That's true. Thanks again for carrying some of these files - it would have taken two trips to get them all without your help
Câu 13: What does the man offer to do?
Câu 14: According to the man, what happened last week?
Câu 15: Why does the woman say, "a piece of hardware had to be custom made"?
M-Au: All right, let's start the meeting. How were our clothing sales for June?
W-Br: Well, sales went up three percent from last month. But customers didn't respond as well as usual to our big semiannual sale
M-Au: I was hoping for a five percent increase ... Donna, why do you think the increase was so small?
W-Am: I think clothing sales weren't as strong because the advertising budget was cut this year. I'd like to see that money put back into our budget.
M-Au: Hmm ... Let's wait another month. If sales are still low, we may have to increase the advertising budget, but I prefer to wait on that decision.
Câu 16: What product are the speakers discussing?
Câu 17: What does Donna suggest?
Câu 18: What does the man propose?
W-Am: Hello, Dan. sovou've been training with us for a couple of months now- as your mentor, I'd like to hear how your apprenticeship's been going
M-Au: It's been going well. I've enjoyed learning the different techniques for metal welding, and like seeing the finished products.
W-Am: I'm glad to hear that. There're still a few weeks left in your training program - but you know, your work is so good that we've decided to offer you a promotion when your training is complete.
M-Au: That's great news! I'd be happy to be part of the team here
Câu 19: Who most likely is the man?
Câu 20: What does the woman ask the man for?
Câu 21: What will the man receive?
W-Br: Well, Dietrich, we're looking forward to seeing you here in our Munich office next Tuesday. We can't wait to see the latest design plans for the company's new, lightweight tablet
M-Cn: Thanks! There's one feature of the tablet that I'm especially pleased with.
W-Br: Really? What is it?
M-Cn: This model has our best battery life ever. It can now operate for three full days on a single charge
W-Br: That's incredible - I'm excited to hear more about this during your presentation. By the way, we made a dinner reservation for our department that evening
M-Cn: Actually, my favorite singer is performing that night
W-Br: That's OK. We ' ll see you soon
Câu 22: What type of product is being discussed?
Câu 23: Which product feature is the man most proud of?
Câu 24: Why does the man say, "my favorite singer is performing that night"?
W-Am: Welcome to the Westfield Hotel! I'm the event coordinator, and this is my associate, Diane. So, you'd like to host an event here?
M-Au: Yes! I work for the National Journalists Association. We're planning our annual awards banquet for June-for about a hundred guests.
W-Br: Well, we have a beautiful ballroom on this floor that I can show you. It's been used for awards ceremonies before.
M-Au: Okay. Also, about half of our guests will be coming from out of town. Do you have enough rooms available for them to stay here?
W-Am: I'm sure we do, but we'll check and send you a quote for a group rate.
W-Br: And additionally, we do offer free shuttle service to and from the airport
Câu 25: What type of event is being planned?
Câu 26: What does the man ask about?
Câu 27: What does the hotel offer for free?
M-Au: Excuse me. My mobile phone is out of power. Are there any tables here at the cafe that are near a wall socket, so I can charge my phone while I have some coffee?
W-Br: Well, we only have a few outlets. And... it looks like all the tables near them are occupied. I'm sorry about that.
M-Au: Hmm. In that case, can you suggest anywhere nearby where I might be able to sit for a few minutes and charge my phone, then?
W-Br: You know, the public library would be perfect for that, and it's just a block up the hill. You'll see it on the corner of Willow Street
Câu 28: What problem does the man mention?
Câu 29: Where are the speakers?
Câu 30: What does the woman suggest the man do?
M-Cn: Mary? I'm working on the bill for one of Dr. Singh's patients, and I keep getting an error message for the code I'm using...
W-Am: Oh! The billing codes recently changed. You must be referring to the old list.
M-Cn: Do you have the updated one?
W-Am: Yes, right here. Which procedure is it?
M-Cn: A blood test
W-Am: All right ... Here's the code you should use.
M-Cn: Thanks! Could I get a copy of that list?
W-Am: Sure. But Jheard they'll be adding the codes to our billing software soon, so we won't need to deal with paper lists anymore.
Câu 31: What is the man having trouble with?
Câu 32: Look at the graphic. Which code should the man use?
Câu 33: What does the woman say will happen soon?
W-Am: Pedro, there 's a lot of interest in our new line of women's dresses planned for the spring. It looks like there will be a lot of demand, so we'd better increase production to be sure we have a supply of all garment sizes.
M-Au: In that case, I suggest we let the human resources department know that we'll need more workers.
W-Am: Right. I'll give them a call now.
M-Au: OK, great. And I was just working on the labels. In fact, the template for the label is up on my computer screen.
W-Am: Can I see? Oh, wait! These garments are 100 percent cotton; so they shouldn't be washed in warm water.
M-Au: OK. I'll make th at change now
Câu 34: What does the woman say they will need to do?
Câu 35: What does the man suggest?
Câu 36: Look at the graphic. Which section of the label will the man need to revise?
W-Br: Hi, Mr. Foster. This is Kasumi Ito, the hiring manager at Silverby Industries. We've reviewed your job application and would like you to come in for an interview. Are you available Tuesday at 2 P.M. next week?
M-Cn: Thanks for getting back to me. Let me check my calendar... Yes, I can do that.
W-Br: Good. Now, Silverby Industries is in a business complex. 0ur building is on Tinley Avenue, and we're right next to the lake.
M-Cn: Thanks. And am I able to park anywhere, or will I need a permit?
W-Br: Just make sure you're in a space marked Visitor, and you won't get a parking violation.
