You should answer the questions as you listen, as the recording is notplayed twice. Listen carefully to the conversation and answer questions 1 to 5. Shop Assistant (man): Good morning madam. Can I help you?Customer (woman): Yes please. I bought this small TV set here recently and when I got it home Icouldn’t get it to work.Man: Oh dear. Well, I’d just better take some details for this work sheet and then we’ll have a lookat it.Wom: OK.  Man: Here we are. Now, can you give me your name please?Wom: Philippa Hutton.Man: Could you spell Hutton please?Wom: That’s H-U-T-T-O-N.Man: Thank you. And your address?Wom: 13 Glen Avenue, Westley.Man: Do you know the postcode?Wom: Yes, it’s WE5 8GF .Man: And what’s your phone number?Wom: My home number is 01748 524965 and my mobile number is 07745 276 145 .Man: OK, got that. Now, did you still have the receipt for the television?Wom: Yes, it’s right here.Man: Let’s have a look. Right, so you bought it on the 5 June. That’s two days ago . So, whatexactly is wrong with the TV?Wom: Well I bought it two days ago so I could watch TV while I was cooking for the family .That’s why I just bought a nice small one. It could t on the shelf next to the dining room door. Anyway, when I got it back and plugged it in, there was no response. Nothing at all. No lights, nosound, no buzz.Man: And there are no electrical problems in that room?Wom: No, nothing. It isn’t just me. My husband is very good with these things and when he cameback, he checked the plug, the fuse, the connections, everything. He couldn’t work it out either.Man: Hmm. That’s very strange. Right then. I’ll have a look at it. I’m actually not busy right now.I can nish it in about half an hour. Do you want to want to wait here or come back later today or tomorrow?Wom: I’ll go to the supermarket across the road and get some shopping done and I’ll comeback in about an hour  . Is that alright?Man: Yes, I’ll be able to tell you what’s wrong by then. By the way, your job number is J25 but itdoesn’t matter as I’ll be here when you get back.Wom: See you later then.  Before the conversation continues, you have some time to look at questions 6 to 10. (20 second gap) Now listen carefully and answer questions 6 to 10. Wom: Hi there. All my shopping’s done. Have you nished?Man: Oh yes. It didn’t take me long. It was actually the rst thing that I checked out so I had it allgured out in about ve minutes.Wom: What was the problem then?Man: It was a loose wire . It’s amazing that this television even got through its tests. I supposethat nowadays not everything is tested properly and they just assume that everything will bealright. With all the things that can go wrong though with bad connections, faulty chips, the screendynamics and everything, it’s amazing they all don’t go wrong more often.Wom: So what can you do about it?Man: We can repair it by tomorrow or we can just give you a new TV. We can send the old oneback to our suppliers.Wom: That sounds best to me. I’ll take a new one please.Man: Do you want the same model and everything?Wom: Yes please.Man: Oh dear. I’m afraid we don’t have that one in right now but we will be able to have it intomorrow morning if that’s OK.Wom: That’s ne. And while I’m here I want to get something else. It’s my nephew’s birthdaynext Thursday . What would you suggest?Man: Well we’ve got lots of things here obviously. How old is he?Wom: Let’s see. He’s the same age as my own son. He’s 10 now and his birthday is next week .Man: OK. We’ve got lots of computer games over there. We’ve got i-pods in the corner if helikes music. He can download music from the internet onto his computer and then onto his i-pod.There are lots of accessories for computers. He could need a new mouse, a wireless keyboard, acamera to use when he’s chatting. There are lots of possibilities and it depends of course on howmuch you want to spend.Wom: I’m pretty sure he’d like a computer game although I know he’s got loads already. I’ll tellyou what. I’ll go back and ask his father what would be best and I’ll come back tomorrow and buysomething while I’m picking up the new TV. What sort of time shall I come tomorrow then?  Man: We open at 9 o’clock in the morning. I’d hope our other shop would be able to send the newtelly over this afternoon. They might only manage it tomorrow morning though so come over atabout 11.Wom: I’ll come an hour later at noon then as I’ll be swimming at 11 .Man: That’s ne. I won’t be here though at noon. I’m taking an early lunch then and I’ll be back at1.Wom: Don’t worry. I’m sure everything will be OK. Thanks very much.Man: You’re welcome madam. Bye.Wom: Goodbye. That is the end of section 1. You will now have half a minute to check your answers. (30 second gap) Now turn to section 2.Section 2. You will hear a policeman giving a safety talk to new students at the University of Westley. First you have some time to look at questions 11 to 15. (20 second gap) Now listen carefully to the safety talk and answer questions 11 to 15. Presenter Good morning everyone and thank you for coming to this lecture on safety. Thislecture is of course optional for all students at Westley University but it has been laid on by your Students’ Union to help you , and both the staff at Westley Police Station and the staff here at theUniversity urge you to attend the other lectures like it and also to get your friends to come too. So,that’s enough from me. I would like to introduce you to Police Constable Fair from Westley PoliceStation who is going to give you some hints on keeping safe. PC Fair.PC Fair Good morning ladies and gentlemen and thank you for allowing me to come hereto talk to you. It really is a great idea for someone from the police force to come and talk toyou as it may save you time, money and also it may help to protect you. I hope I don’t soundcondescending when I point out some ideas as a lot of things really are just common sense but itis often forgetting these common sense things that can lead to problems.First of all the thing that students are most likely to suffer from, whether they are in digs or in hall, is theft . You hear a lot of terrible stories about muggings, rape and fraud but these arenot really that widespread and we’re talk about some of those things later. Thieves know very wellthat student lodgings are a good place to nd electronic goods, wallets and bags and the like withlittle or no protection. So, make sure that you’re room, house or at is securely locked each timethat you go out. Don’t leave valuables in the open where they can be spotted from the window.See if you can get an extra lock on your window too. If possible, when you’re out, try and leave
