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 32: Who most likely is the man?
Câu 33: What are the speakers discussing?
Câu 34: 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 35: What is the woman announcing?
Câu 36: What is being arranged for next week?
Câu 37: 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 38: Who most likely is the woman?
Câu 39: What is the main topic of the conversation?
Câu 40: 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 41: How did the woman reach her decision?
Câu 42: Look at the graphic. Which product did the woman choose?
Câu 43: 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 44: Who most likely are the speakers?
Câu 45: Look at the graphic. When will the man work at the festival?
Câu 46: 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.
Câu 47: Why does the woman talk to the man?
Câu 48: Look at the graphic. Where does the man tell the woman to go?
Câu 49: What does the man say about the woman's ticket?
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 50: What is the main topic of the conversation?
Câu 51: What does the man request?
Câu 52: 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 53: Who most likely is the woman?
Câu 54: What does the woman ask about?
Câu 55: 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 56: What is the problem?
Câu 57: What does the woman inquire about?
Câu 58: 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 59: Where most likely are the speakers?
Câu 60: According to the woman, why should Mr. Patel open an account?
Câu 61: 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 62: What does the man say will take place in two weeks?
Câu 63: What does the woman say she is concerned about?
Câu 64: 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 65: Where do the speakers most likely work?
Câu 66: What problem does the man mention?
Câu 67: 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 68: What has the woman forgotten to bring?
Câu 69: What problem does the man mention?
Câu 70: What does the man imply when he says, "I know where it belongs"?
M-Cn: Attention, shoppers! Today is the first day of our spring sales event. This is being held on the first floor. AII art supplies are now on sale, starting from as little as one dollar. We've got great deals on brushes, canvases, paint, and more! Also, from now until August thirtieth, we're accepting submissions for our summer art contest!

Câu 72: What can listeners find on the first floor?
Câu 73: What are listeners encouraged to do by August 30?
W-Am: Hi, Armand, this is Linda from the management office of Redfox Apartments. I received your message about your dishwasher not working properly, so I've called a repair person to come and fix it on Monday morning at eleven o'clock. Since you'll probably be at work at that time, could you please stop by the management office before then? You'll need to leave a letter giving permission for the repair person to enter in your absence.

Câu 75: What is t he speaker calling about?

Throughout the week, I' ll be showing you some of the latest products on display here. Right now I have in my hand the newest mobile phone from Helios Wireless - the Helios Ten. What 's really unique about this phone is its revolutionary screen. Helios has developed a glare-proof material for the screen that's easy to read outdoors even on the sunnies the days.

Câu 79: What does the speaker suggest some listeners do?
M-Au: Hi, everyone. Thanks for coming to this last-minute meeting. Remember the large order of glassware we shipped to the client in California? It's been a week. So, I called the shipping company this morning and apparently we put the wrong address on the labels. They've located the boxes and are reshipping them immediately to the correct address. But since we could have lost one of our biggest clients over this mistake, I want to make sure this never happens again. Masaki, I'd like you to go through our address list and double-check all of our clients' addresses.
Câu 80: Why has the meeting been called?
Câu 81: Why does the speaker say, "It's been a week"?
Câu 82: What does the speaker ask Masaki to do?

into our system until I have that information. It's important we take care of this today, so he can get paid on time. Can you send Mr. Ellis to my office as soon as possible? I realize this may interrupt his training. This form is only one page, though. Um... thanks.

Longmark has become one of the leading companies in the energy industry, and we strive to create innovative and cutting-edge products. At the end of the tour, you'll have the opportunity to hear from Laura Shen, one of our leading scientists here at Longmark. Dr. Shen will discuss some of our newest research and products.

Câu 87: Who is Laura Shen?
Câu 88: What does the speaker mention about the tour?
M-Au: Hello, everyone. Thanks again for attending this screening of my film documentary, Cultural Cuisines. I apologize again for starting a little late - the projector wasn't working properly. Before I show the film, I'd like to tell you a bit about it. A few years ago I traveled to Bolivia and fell in love with its food and its food culture. In the movie, a group of people from a small Bolivian village show you how problems can be resolved while everyone's enjoying a delicious meal. At two hours long, it is a long film... but I'll be answering questions when it's over.
Câu 89: Who most likely is the speaker?
Câu 90: What caused a delay?
Câu 91: Why does the speaker say, "I'll be answering questions when it's over"?
W-Br: Good morning, team. Congratulations on creating such a successful marketing campaign for our Heritage Mill cookies. We've already seen a dramatic increase in this product's sales since the launch of the television commercial, so I'd like you to expand this marketing campaign to our other products as well. According to a recent survey, our customers really liked the images of the families eating together that they saw in our commercials. So let's keep this concept in mind as we think of ideas for our other products. We'll discuss those ideas at our meeting next week.
Câu 92: Who is the speaker congratulating?
Câu 93: According to the speaker, what do customers like about the commercial?
Câu 94: What most likely will listeners do next week?
M-Au: Attention all passengers on Flight WA15. Due to inclement weather, this flight has been canceled. We're very sorry for the inconvenience. In order to assist you in making alternative travel arrangements, we'll be calling passengers up to the counter according to your boarding zone numbers. Please take out your boarding passes and look at the zone number you have been assigned. Approach the counter only when we call the group with your zone number. In just a few moments, we will begin unloading your luggage. Please listen for a separate announcement about where to retrieve your bags. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
Câu 95: What is the announcement about?
Câu 96: Look at the graphic. Which number should James Albertson pay attention to now?
Câu 97: What will the speaker announce later?
W-Br: Last week I went to the yearly retreat for Kierson Bookstore managers. The good news coming out of that meeting concerns money. Each store in the chain will have an increased budget next year to spend on expanding one of the sections in their store. After I returned, I took an informal survey about what kind of books customers would like us to carry more of. As you can see from the chart, it's clear which one they like the best. And the art section will need to be reduced, unfortunately. That inventory has become too expensive to stock.
Câu 98: What event did the speaker recently attend?
Câu 99: What topic does the speaker report on?
Câu 100: Look at the graphic. Which store section will be expanded?

Spectacular Bridge Created with Super Cranes
By Marcia Brunon
Five years ago, the town of Stonewell, situated at the foot of the Marshall Mountains, decided to finance the building of a bridge across the Stonewell River. It was planned as a much-needed northern route for the town. -  - . The efficiency of the project was directly attributable to two RWC451 cranes, manufactured by Ronsonworks, a company based in England.
The two identical tower cranes were owned by the construction firm Redding Builders. One crane was assembled at the south bank of the river, while the other one was placed on a concrete pylon in the center of the Stonewell River. -  - . The assembly of the second crane was particularly challenging, as it required the use of another crane on a floating barge.
"Any large project is going to require unforeseen adjustments that may disrupt an official construction schedule," said Roger Lee, chief engineer of Redding Builders. -  - . In this case, the metal anchors that connected the bridge to the pylons were determined to be too small. The new anchors weighed 22 tons, which is within the safe lifting capacity of an RWC451 crane. -  - . Engineers reinforced the existing cranes for extra security, and the cranes performed well.
Today, this postcard-worthy bridge is the pride of Stonewell, featuring viewing platforms for pedestrians, hikers, and visitors at the base of each pier overlooking the mountainous valley. Construction materials and colors harmonize beautifully with the local environment. All design elements, including the piers, viewing platforms, and railings, complement the natural landscape, making the bridge a hit with everyone from hikers to the truck drivers who now include it in their regular route.

Ment Hall to Host Piasek Cup Final
Ment Hall, which is currently undergoing extensive renovation, will be ready to host the final game of the Piasek Cup Volleyball Championship to be held in Warsaw this June. Although the project has been in the works for some time, it was the opportunity to host this championship that provided the economic incentive to push the project to its completion. City officials have confirmed that the construction is progressing according to schedule and will be complete well before the finals of the championship.
Since Ment Hall is the only major arena in the country that has never hosted a Piasek Cup event, the hall's owners were proud to have been chosen to host this year's finale. The final game will inaugurate the refurbished hall. The event is expected to draw thousands of volleyball fans, and the organizers are confident that Ment Hall will live up to the occasion. Seating 19,000 spectators, Ment Hall will be double its previous size.
