M-Cn: Hi, Ms. Larson. Thanks for agreeing to review the budget report that I prepared. I wanted to make sure that I did it correctly since it's my first time.
W-Am: Yes, Jason, It looked very good overall. The only thing I'll need you to do is to add more details to the expenditures list. We like to have every office supply itemized.
M-Cn: Oh, OK, sure. I'll work on getting those details this afternoon. It would be helpful to see how it was done in the past. Is there an example of a report that I can look at?
W-Am: You should talk to Emiko-she can give you a copy of last month's report.
Câu 1: What is the main topic of the conversation?
Câu 2: What does the man request?
Câu 3: What does the woman suggest the man do?
M-Au: Ms. Batra, how does the stage look to you? Is the piano in the right place?
W-Am: The stage arrangement is fine. But can we make sure that there'll be enough background lighting? I want all the members of my band to be visible.
M-Au: Of course. But I'd rather do it when the rest of your band is here so I can be sure the lighting is right.
W-Am: OK. I'm meeting them for lunch and then we're coming back here to rehearse together this afternoon. We'll see you then
Câu 4: Who most likely is the woman?
Câu 5: What does the woman ask about?
Câu 6: What does the man say he would prefer to do?
W-Br: Hi, Bob, I received your e-mail about the software training at two P.M. this Friday. But I have to meet with the marketing director of J. Alderman and Sons at that time.
M-Au: Oh, I'm sorry; I completely forgot that you had a client meeting. How long do you think it'll take?
W-Br: Probably thirty to forty-five minutes. I have to review a contract with him. Is there any way that you could start the training later in the day?
M-Au: Unfortunately, the rest of the team isn't free after three P.M ., but if it's OK with you, I can just e-mail you the training documents to look over on your own. Contact me next week if you have any questions.
Câu 7: What is the problem?
Câu 8: What does the woman inquire about?
Câu 9: What does the man say he will do?
W-Br: OK, Mr. Patel. Did the doctor want you to make another appointment?
M-Cn: Yes, but I'll have to check my work calendar.
W-Br: You can now make appointments on our Web site if you have an account. Just log on and view available times online.
M-Cn: Great. How do I sign up for an account?
W-Br: Colin handles all registrations. Colin, can you help Mr. Patel set up a patient account on our Web site?
M-Au: Certainly. If you have a smartphone, we can do it now. Or 431 can give you a handout with instructions to set up your account later.
M-Cn: I'll set it up later.
M-Au: OK. Here's the handout. Please call with any questions.
Câu 10: Where most likely are the speakers?
Câu 11: According to the woman, why should Mr. Patel open an account?
Câu 12: What does Colin give to Mr. Patel?
M-Cn: Mina, I was thinking about our travel plans for the industry conference we're going to in Boston. It's only two weeks away.
W-Am: Well, the three of us are all taking the same flight, so maybe we could ride together from the office to the airport. But, we'll be gone for several days, so the cost of parking would really add up.
M-Cn: True. You know, I think it's twenty dollars to take a taxi.
W-Am: That's a possibility. Let's ask Martin what he thinks.
Câu 13: What does the man say will take place in two weeks?
Câu 14: What does the woman say she is concerned about?
Câu 15: Why does the man say, "it's twenty dollars to take a taxi" ?
W-Br: Sam, Mr. Kim just called about his order. He wants us to double the number of uniforms we're making for his hotel staff.
M-Au: That's great news! Has the deadline changed also?
W-Br: Actually, he still wants the order to be finished by the first of May.
M-Au: Hmm... that's a problem. There's no way we can make so many uniforms that quickly.
W-Br: How about we hire some part-time tailors to help with this extra work?
M-Au: Good idea. Can you get a list of names for me?
Câu 16: Where do the speakers most likely work?
Câu 17: What problem does the man mention?
Câu 18: How will the speakers solve the problem?
M-Cn: Hello, Ma'am. Thanks for shopping at Fresh made Supermarket. Do you have one of our loyalty cards?
W-Am: Yes, but I forgot to bring it today.
M-Cn: Unfortunately, I can't look up your phone number because our computer system isn't working, so I can't give you a discount today.
W-Am: OK. I understand. Oh, and I took this bottle of soy sauce from the shelf, but I don't want to buy it now.
M-Cn: That's fine, I know where it belongs. Now, will you be paying with cash or credit?
Câu 19: What has the woman forgotten to bring?
Câu 20: What problem does the man mention?
Câu 21: What does the man imply when he says, "I know where it belongs"?
W-Br: Hello, Mr. Tanaka. Welcome to Bike Solutions Consulting. When I heard that a representative from the Burrville City Council wanted to meet, I was very excited.
M-Cn: Well, we know your company helps cities set up their bike-share programs, and Burrville wants to set one up, too.
W-Br: That's great news! What are your goals for your program?
M-Cn: We want to encourage our residents to exercise as well as to reduce car traffic. But it's going to be a challenge convincing people to participate.
W-Br: We'll handle that. When cities partner with us, part of the service we provide is an advertising campaign. We'll produce television and radio commercials that will encourage community members to use the bikes.
Câu 22: Who most likely is the man?
Câu 23: What are the speakers discussing?
Câu 24: What does the woman say is part of the service her company provides?
W-Am: Thanks for stopping by, Vincent and Sanjay. The board of directors decided to purchase new security cameras, so someone from Menovar Technologies is coming tomorrow to deliver and install them.
M-Cn: It'll be good to have the latest equipment.
W-Am I agree. So Vincent, I'll need some of your Maintenance Department staff to help with the installation.
M-Cn: No problem. I'll send two people over to assist.
M-Au: Will there be a training session for my security personnel to use the new camera system?
W-Am: Yes, Sanjay-Menovar Technologies suggested next Monday for the training. Is that OK for your team?
M-Au: Sure. How about ten o'clock?
W-Am: I'll e-mail Menovar right away to see if that works for them.
Câu 25: What is the woman announcing?
Câu 26: What is being arranged for next week?
Câu 27: What does the woman say she will do?
W-Br: Thank you for agreeing to meet me for this interview. The readers of Auto World Magazine are eager to hear about your company's plans for a new car manufacturing plant.
M-Au: Yes, we'll be opening a facility in Indonesia soon. We currently have two plants in this country, so we're looking forward to expanding our production capabilities overseas.
W-Br: I see. And when will the first cars be built in that factory?
M-Au: That's a good question. Right now we're planning on December.
Câu 28: Who most likely is the woman?
Câu 29: What is the main topic of the conversation?
Câu 30: According to the man, what will happen in December?
W-Br: Hi Raymond. It's Marta Dunmore. I'm calling about the wood options we discussed for my new kitchen floor.
M-Cn: Great! What did you decide?
W-Br: Well, I thought about choosing the dark pine. But then I took the samples you gave me into the kitchen and looked at them carefully. I decided the pattern on the oak will look best.
M-Cn: Oak is a great choice. It's harder than pine, so it's a good value. And the light color of the ash and maple don't really match your kitchen.
W-Br: OK, great. When can you start the installation?
M-Cn: I'll have to check my calendar when I get back to the office. Can I give you a call later?
Câu 31: How did the woman reach her decision?
Câu 32: Look at the graphic. Which product did the woman choose?
Câu 33: Why does the man need to call back later?
M-Au: I think the restaurant's going to get some nice publicity by being in the community festival this weekend. It'll be a great way to get customers interested in our food.
W-Am: It's definitely good advertising. Aren't you working the first day of the festival?
M-Au: Yeah-but if the event gets rained out and is held at a later date, I won't be able to work it because I'll be on holiday. Luckily, the weather this weekend should be warm and sunny, so I plan to be at the festival's opening day. How about you?
W-Am: I'm not scheduled to work for the restaurant, but I'll be there helping a friend. She has a small jewelry shop and needs a hand with her booth.
Câu 34: Who most likely are the speakers?
Câu 35: Look at the graphic. When will the man work at the festival?
Câu 36: What does the woman say she will do?
M-Cn: Welcome to the Natural History Museum. Can I help you?
W-Br: Hi I'm trying to find the special Fossils exhibit I saw advertised on TV. Can you tell me how to get to it?
M-Cn: Sure. We're here in the Main Hall. That's the Bird Hall over there. The fossils are just in the next room, on the other side of Bird Hall. It's a large well-lit space that we often use for special exhibits. That's where you want to go.
W-Br: Thanks. Oh-and is my ticket good for special exhibits?
M-Cn: Yes. Everything is included with regular admission at our museum.
