live: Hello, Edwina, is it? Have a seat.
Edwina: Yes, Edwina. Thanks. I’m looking for a job as a nanny. I like working with children. I talked to you yesterday?
Clive: Oh, yes. Well, we covered most of the ground on the phone yesterday. I’ve got a form I need to complete for my records. So, you’re Edwina Riley, and how should we contact you?
Edwina: By email.I check it regularly.
Clive: What’s the address?
Edwina: (1) It’s Edwina like my name then R-l, the first two letters of my surname, at worldnet dot com.
Clive: E-D-W-l-N-A-R-l at worldnet dot com?
Clive: Good. And you’re from Australia?
Edwina: (2) Actually, I’m a New Zealander.
Clive: Oh, I’m sorry. I bet it’s really irritating being told you’re an Australian. Like Canadians being asked what part of the States they’re from.
Edwina: I’m used to it. It happens to us all the time.
Clive: And now, you said on the phone that you could bring me some references? One from someone who’s known you in a professional capacity and one personal one?
Edwina: Ah, yeah. Here’s one from (3) John Keen, who was the manager at the play centre in Wellington where I worked for three years after I left school. It’s got all his contact details on.
Clive: Thank you. So this was your last employer?
Edwina: Yes, apart from a bit of waitressing recently, but that was just temporary. I’m sure John will answer any questions if you contact him.
Clive: We do run checks, yes. And a personal reference?
Edwina: Ah, you can contact the friend of my mother’s I’m staying with here in London: (4) Eileen Dorsini. She’s a professor. She’s known me all my life because she used to be our neighbour back home when she was a primary school teacher there. Now she’s working here at the Institute of Education.
Clive: Oh good! Edwina: I’ve got her contact details here for you.
Clive: Thanks. I think I have some jobs to suit you. Oh, do you have any practical qualifications, by the way? Life-saving, music,
Edwina: Um, (5) I’ve got an up-to-date first aid certificate. I did a course when I was working.
Clive: That’s good. First aid. Anything else?
Edwina: Well, I’ve got a driving licence, as I told you on the phone.
But that’s not special, you said, almost everyone needs that really. (6) I’ve got a sailing qualification, it’s a certificate of competence.
Clive: So you’re a yachtswoman?
Edwina: I love sailing.
Clive: Well, I’ll note you have a certificate. Hmm. Before you hear the rest of the conversation, you have some time to look at questions 7 to 10.
Clive: Now, as I mentioned yesterday, there are three families and the job description is much the same for all of them, as I explained. There are a few other things you need to know. Anyway, the first family’s here in London.
Edwina: Yes, I did make a few notes. London, er, that’s the Bentons? With two children?
Clive: Yes. That’s right, a girl of three and her brother who’s eight. The little boy has a quite serious food allergy. Did you learn about things like that on your course?
Edwina: Oh, well, I know what to do if someone has an allergic reaction.
Clive: Good, but (7) what they mainly want is someone with an interest in sport, as that’s the kind of family they are.
Edwina: Oh that’s OK. I’ll enjoy that.
Clive: Good. Now the next people are in the country, near Oxford.
Edwina: Oh yeah, the Grangers?
Clive: So, (8) they have twin boys of five, who are a bit of a handful, I suspect, but it’s a lovely place, quite a grand house, and the family is extremely welcoming. They keep horses. Do you ride?
Edwina: I did when I was younger. I like animals generally.
Clive: Well, ‘animal-lover’ was their special request, so you’d be fine there. The last family …
Clive: I don’t think I told you (9) they live in Scotland.
Edwina: Really? What’s their name?
Edwina: Oh, yes. And they have four girls under ten?
Clive: That’s it. They have a lovely city fiat, and they own a small island.
Clive: Actually, you might get on with them very well. (10) They particularly wanted someone who would be prepared to cook when they go camping on the island.

Man: Hello. Robert Gladwell speaking. Woman: Oh hi. My name’s Chloe Martin. I was given your name and phone number by Ben Winters. I work with him and he said you’re a member of Midbury Drama Club. Man: Yes, I am. Woman: Well, I’ve just moved to the area and I’m keen to join a drama club. Man: Great! Yes, I can give you some information. We’re one of the oldest drama clubs in the area as (Example) the club started in 1957. We now have about 60 members. Our youngest member is ten and our oldest member is 78. The year the drama club started was 1957, so ‘1957’ has been written in the space. Now we shall begin. You should answer the questions as you listen because you will not hear the recording a second time. Listen carefully and answer questions 1 to 6. Woman: I think I saw a picture in the newspaper the other day of some of your members being presented with a prize. Man: Yes, (1) the youth section did very well in a competition and won £100 which will help with their next production. Anyway, tell me a bit more about yourself. Woman: Well, I’ve done a bit of acting. I was in a couple of musicals when I was at university and a historical play more recently. Man: (2) Mm … we mainly do comedy plays. We get good audiences for that kind of thing. We haven’t attempted a musical yet, but we might do one soon. Woman: Oh! When do you usually meet? Man: On Tuesdays. Woman: Presumably I’ll need to do an audition? Man: Yes, there were a few auditions last Tuesday and we’ll be doing more at our next meeting which is in two weeks’ time, (3) that’s on Tuesday the 12th of March. There’ll be another opportunity two weeks after that which will be on the 26th of March. Woman: Oh, well I can come to your next meeting. And if I don’t get an acting part in a play, I’d be happy to help with something else. (4) I’ve designed publicity before. Man: Great! We’re very short of people who can do that, so that would be really good. There are a lot of people who like making scenery so we get plenty of help with that, but we haven’t got enough people to do the lights at the moment so if you think you can do that or you have any friends who would like to, do bring them along. We can show you what to do if you haven’t got any experience. Woman: Mm … I’ll have to think about it. So do you meet in the theatre? Man: We do our performances in The Manor Theatre but we only hire that for the nights of the actual performances. (5) We meet to rehearse every Tuesday evening in the community hall. We rent a room there. Woman: Oh, I’m not sure where that is. I’ll be coming by car because I don’t live in the town centre. Man: It’s in Ashburton Road. As you’re coming towards the centre down Regent Street, you need to turn left at the crossroads. Woman: Oh, I know, there’s a big car park down there, just before you get to a hotel. (6) It’s on the other side of the road from the sports centre. Man: That’s it. That’s the closest place to leave your car and you don’t have to pay in the evening to park there. We meet at 7.30 and we usually finish by 9.30 or 10. Woman: OK!
