Тексты для аудирования
Interviewer (female voice): We spoke to some boys and girls to find out their opinions about fashion.
Speaker 1 (male): My favourite clothes are the ones I have had for years. I’ve been wearing my jeans for 4 years but I wouldn’t change them for fashionable clothes any day. For me they are always in fashion and I feel good when I wear them.
Speaker 2 (female): I like to wear fashionable clothes. I love television and advertising. I try to keep up-to-the-minute with what I wear. Being in fashion makes me feel good.
Speaker 3 (male): My parents say that my clothes are a bit strange. It’s true. I like wearing unusual clothes.
Speaker 4 (female): I have the same tastes as my friends and we all dress more or less in the same way. I like the way we wear the same things, it makes us even closer.
Speaker 5 (male): I can’t tell you if I follow fashion or not. When I need to buy something new I choose what I like best and buy them if I have enough money. I don’t worry if it’s fashionable or not.

Hotel Clerk: Hello. Sunrise Inn. May I help you?
Man: Yes, I’d like to reserve a room for two on the 3rd of May.
Hotel Clerk: Okay. Let me check our books for a moment. The 3rd of March, right?
Man: No, May, not March.
Hotel Clerk: Oh, sorry. Let me see. Hmm.
Man: Are you all booked that night?
Hotel Clerk: I’m sorry to say that, but… Oh well, we do have one suite available.
Man: How much is that?
Hotel Clerk: It’s $ 200.
Man: That’s a little too expensive for me. Do you have a cheaper room available either on the 2nd or 3rd?
Hotel Clerk: I’m afraid we’re full on the 2nd but we do have a few rooms on the 3rd. All units are with air-conditioning, a colour TV and in-room phone.
Man: Well, how much is that?
Hotel Clerk: $ 80.
Man: O.K. That’ll be fine.
Hotel Clerk: How long are you going to stay?
Man: Ten days.
Hotel Clerk: So you’re leaving on the 13th of May? I hope you’ll enjoy the place. Could I have your name, please?
Man: Yes, Bob Linacre.
Hotel Clerk: Excuse me, how do you spell your last name, Mr. Linacre?
Hotel Clerk: O.K., Mr. Linacre, we look forward to seeing you on May 3rd and thank you.

This is the end of Part 1. You now have 15 seconds to check your answers. (Pause 15 seconds)
Now we are ready to start.
Situation 1 You will hear a man talking about the opening ceremony for the Olympics in Sydney. How does he feel about it?
1. fascinated; 2. bored; 3. indifferent
I normally think opening ceremonies for Olympics are a waste of time, a bit boring, but this one was truly spectacular and breathtaking. Usually I’d switch it off, but this time I kept watching. Now you will hear Situation 1 again. (Repeat)
Situation 2 You will hear a man talking about the Danes’ decision not to adopt the European Union currency. How does he feel about it?
1. He is critical of it. 2. He approves of it. 3. He is indifferent to it.
With the rejection of the EURO, Denmark has shown the true value of democracy. Its citizens decided via a referendum that they preferred to maintain their own currency rather than adopt that of the European Union. Their vote will show all participating nations the value of a true referendum by the people, as opposed to the decisions made by politicians. Now you will hear Situation 2 again. (Repeat)
Situation 3 You will hear a man talking about golf. How does the man feel about the golf game?
1. He finds it dull. 2. He finds it attractive. 3. He finds it tiring.
Until I saw Tiger Woods in action, I found golf extremely boring and too slow. Thanks to him I have been drawn to the game and developed an appreciation of it. Maybe when I’m 40 I’ll take it up. Now you will hear Situation 3 again. (Repeat)
Situation 4 You will hear a commercial about pens. What is so special about them?
1. One pen writes in six colours. 2. Drawings made with them do not dry. 3. One can make washable drawings on any type of cloth.
FLUFFITS, the brilliant new designer pens. What’s so new about them? Draw your own creation on a T-shirt, bag or your jeans. All you have to do is dry it with a hairdryer and the design will be permanent and machine-washable. Available in six colours. Ask for FLUFFITS. Now you will hear Situation 4 again. (Repeat)
Situation 5 You will hear a boy’s opinion on whether 16-year-olds should be allowed to drive a car. What does he think about it?
1. He disapproves of the idea. 2. He supports the idea. 3. He is uncertain about it.
I’m sure that when someone starts driving at 16 they don’t know the highway rules well enough, and they don’t have enough driving experience. But if, instead of giving a license to people at 16, schools devoted more time to teaching 16-year-olds how to drive, then at the age of 18 teenagers would be a lot better prepared and would be much safer at the wheel. Now you will hear Situation 5 again. (Repeat)
Situation 6 You will hear a teacher talking to his students about they way he works with them. Who is the course for?
1. students who study marketing; 2. students who study publishing; 3. students who study creative writing.
This is the way I work with my students, and my fellow instructors work more or less the same way. When you’re ready you mail your assignment to me. I read it and reread it to get everything out of it that you’ve put into it. Then I edit your assignment just the way a publishing house editor would. I mail it back with a detailed letter explaining my comments. I tell you what your strong points and weaknesses are, and just what you can do to improve. If you can take constructive criticism, learn from it, you will learn how to write and how to market your writing. Now you will hear Situation 6 again. (Repeat)
Situation 7 You will hear a girl talking about her shopping experience. Why did she take her sweater back to the shop?
1. She didn’t like its quality. 2. It didn’t fit her. 3. The colour was wrong.
I bought a sweater for a big party my friend was giving. Everyone liked it but my girlfriend found it too large. After an hour at the party, I noticed that the sweater was piling. By the end of the night, there was yellow fuzz all over the apartment. I took the sweater back, but the cashier said I couldn’t get a refund for something that I’d already worn. The only thing she could do was to replace it with a new one. But when I showed her the black skirt I’d worn that night coated with yellow fuzz, she refunded my money on the spot. Now you will hear Situation 7 again. (Repeat)
This is the end of the task. Now you have 15 seconds to check your answers.
