W: The shop promised to have my car ready by 6:30 this evening, and now they are saying tomorrow at 2.
M: Do you need a ride to work today?
W: That would be great, thanks. It's so inconvenient to be without a car.
M: I know. I wish that our city would invest in a good public transportation system.
Câu 1: What does the man offer?
Câu 2: When will the woman's car be ready?
Câu 3: What does the man wish?
W: Why did you decide to paint the office?
M: The walls are so old and stained. Plus, I read somewhere that bright colors have a positive effect on people's work attitudes.
W: Do you have any colors picked out yet?
M: We are deciding among yellow, orange and pink. I am leaning toward yellow, but it's not just my decision.
Câu 4: What is NOT true of the walls as they are now?
Câu 5: Why is the man painting the walls?
Câu 6: What color does the man prefer?
M: You're back? I figured a meeting with the mayor would take much longer than half an hour.
W: I know. He needed to hear about the grave problems our research found.
M: Didn't you explain it to him?
W: I told him about low reading-level scores. However, when I started pointing out how the superintendent could fix the problem, he cut me off.
M: I really expected more from him.
Câu 7: For how long was the woman supposed to meet with the mayor?
Câu 8: What was the purpose of the meeting with the mayor?
Câu 9: What does the man feel toward the mayor?
W: I hate my job. I'm no good at it, I don't care about it at all, and the pay is awful.
M: Weren't you only going to stay for 6 months? It's two years later and you're still there.
W: I know....
M: I think you should just walk away now. You need the fear of not having a job at all to motivate you to find a new one.
W: You're right. I'll give my two weeks' notice right now.
Câu 10: What does the woman NOT mention about her job?
Câu 11: How long has the woman had her job?
Câu 12: What does the man tell the woman?
M: I still haven't heard back from them, so I'm assuming I didn't get it.
W: Don't worry. Employers need time to make a decision. It would be wise to call them though.
M: But I would feel silly if I called and they told me that they were not interested.
Câu 13: What is the man disappointed about?
Câu 14: What does the woman suggest to the man?
Câu 15: What is the man afraid of?
W: Is this new?
M: No. It was Andrew's. But when he moved to the eleventh floor, he didn't feel like hauling it with him. He let me keep it.
W: I could really use a larger desk. I've got a computer, printer, and a fax machine on my desk. And that of course is in addition to the piles of paperwork.
M: I wish I could help you out, but I'm not willing to give it up!
Câu 16: Who paid for the man's desk?
Câu 17: What is NOT on the woman's desk?
Câu 18: What is the man going to do with the desk?
M: After work, do you want to go to that new department store that opened where the golf store used to be? It's right next door to the Burger Joint.
W: Of course!
M: We can take my car, and leave yours in the parking lot here.
W: I'll just drive separately. I have to go straight to a neighborhood meeting at 7:30.
Câu 19: Where does the man want to go?
Câu 20: Who is the man in relation to the woman?
Câu 21: Who will drive?
M: Can your department get by without temporary workers this summer?
W: Probably. We're having a meeting next week, so we can ensure that none of our vacations overlap.
M: We really need to trim the budget. Sales were terrible last quarter.
W: Well, I guarantee you that we will arrange everything for the summer.
M: You are always so committed.
Câu 22: What will the woman's department do this summer?
Câu 23: What does the man want to do?
Câu 24: What is true of the woman?
W: Do you know Ron from the 11th floor?
M: Not well, but we've met at the office parties.
W: We are considering adding him to our team on the seventh floor, but I'm not sure he's got what it takes.
M: Our team is pretty intense. Unfortunately, I don't know Ron well enough to give you an opinion.
W: We really have to find someone soon. The work is adding up.
Câu 25: What is the man's relationship with Ron?
Câu 26: What does the man tell the woman?
Câu 27: What is true of the seventh floor?
M: Look at that line at security! I'll miss my flight!
W: I told you to arrive earlier.
M: Yes, but you know me. I'm always running late.
W: Maybe you should set your clock ahead a few minutes so you'll think you're running late, but when you arrive, you'll actually be right on time.
