P = Presenter; D = Dominique; R = Rob

P: Let’s see what we’ve got on this week’s ?15 challenge. We’re going to send two people out for a night in London, and their challenge is to have a good night out, but not spend more than ?15. So, is it possible? Well, we’re going to find out. We’ve asked Dominique and Rob to spend an evening in London, and not spend more than ?15. So, let’s speak to Dominique first. Hi, Dominique.

D: Hi, George.

P: Tell us, Dominique, what are your plans?

D: Well, first of all I’m going to see a free art exhibition at the Tate Modern. I don’t normally like modern art, so I hope it’s OK. Um, then I’m meeting some friends and we’re going to a concert at a pub called The King’s Head. There’s a free band playing and so I only need to pay for my drinks. Afterwards we’re having dinner in Brick Lane where there are lots of Indian restaurants. They’ve told me that if you go to one of the restaurants there at 10 p.m., you can get a free meal. I don’t know if that’s true, but I’m going to try anyway. Then I’m getting the bus home. A taxi is too expensive.

P: That sounds great. Have a good evening, and you can tell us all about it tomorrow.

D: I will.

P: Our second volunteer is Rob. Rob, can you tell us about your evening?

R: Yes. I’m starting the evening with a visit to a museum, too. I’m going to the National Gallery to see the paintings there. They stay open one night a week, and it’s free. Then I’m going to Covent Garden to watch the street entertainers. Um, that’s free, too. And after that, I’m going to watch some comedy. There’s a really good comedy club just near Covent Garden. It’s ?8 to get in. I’m not having dinner. There isn’t enough time.

P: Thanks, Rob. Enjoy your evening, and don’t forget to call us …

Part 1

Holiday 10 Best takes a journey to the coolest, the hippest, the biggest and the most exciting cities around the world. We’ve got shopping, socializing, sightseeing, history, culture, and of course the odd beach or two.

So, what is it that makes a city truly great? Let’s face it: We spend most of our time trying to get away from them. They’re busy; they’re crowded; they aren’t exactly relaxing. So, how does Barcelona manage to get it so right?

I love Barcelona. I’ve been here about a dozen times, and what keeps bringing me back? Well, it’s the art, the great buildings, fantastic shopping, and just the general laid-back attitude to life. It’s my favorite city and I’m gonna show you my recipe for the perfect day here.

Part 2

Now, you don’t want to start your day too early because it’s going to be a long one. But when you do manage to drag yourself out of bed, the only way to kick things off here is with a nice, big, fat, creamy cup of hot chocolate, with some lovely sugary churros.

First stop on my sightseeing tour: La Sagrada Familia. Barcelona likes to think of itself as such an individual city and for me the Sagrada Familia really sums that up.

People always think that a siesta is about sleeping. Not true. In Barcelona, it means a nice, long lunch, and that means it’s time for tapas. What I love about tapas is the way you can just try a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and if you really want to find out what it’s all about, get Juan Carlos, who’s the owner of the oldest tapas bar in Barcelona, just to serve you up a selection.

No city break is complete without a spot of serious shopping. Most first-timers will end up on the Ramblas, famous for its silly statues and being ridiculously crowded. What can I say? I’m a northern girl and I love my markets, and this is the best one I’ve found anywhere in the world. Now, there’s probably more tourists here than there are locals, but that’s because of two reasons: this fantastic bar – Pinocchio’s Bar, and the amazing array of things that you can buy here. Well worth a visit.

Now, one thing that will probably surprise you about Barcelona is that it’s got beaches. Five of them. Now, they’re not the best you’re gonna find on the Med, but it’s one of the things that makes this place so special.

There are two things to remember when you’re heading out for the night here. One: Don’t even think about coming out early. Nobody has dinner before nine. And two: Pace yourself. It’s going to be a long night. The way to approach a night out in Barcelona is to take a drink here, a nibble of tapas there, and then repeat until you get tired, or the sun comes up. And that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

Group discussion

Scripts

I’m going to tell you about my perfect day in Prague. Um, first of all, we’re starting the day in the main square. It’s a beautiful place to have breakfast in one of the cafés. It’s a little bit expensive, but we’re going to sit outside so we can watch the clock tower.

After breakfast, we’re going to walk through the old city, and go to Charles Bridge. There are some interesting statues on the bridge, and there’s a market where you can buy some souvenirs. From the bridge, we’re walking up to the Castle. And we’re going to have lunch in a restaurant near there.

In the afternoon, we’re taking a tram around the city. It’s a good way to see the sights because it’s cheap and easy. And afterwards, we’re going to relax in the park at Petrin Hill. Er, there is a tall tower here, where you can see wonderful views of the city, too. We’re going to a coffee shop in the afternoon, in the Municipal House, where they do wonderful coffees.

And then, in the evening, we’re planning to go to a classical music concert in St. Nicholas Church. You can come here to listen to Bach, Mozart or Vivaldi, and the atmosphere is very special. When it’s finished, we’re having dinner at Kolkovna, in the old town, which serves traditional Czech food, and then we’re going to spend the rest of the evening trying different bars in the old town, which serve very cheap, local beers. It’s going to be fantastic!

Short conversations

Scripts

Conversation 1

W: I’m going to relax a little after such a hard week. How about a long walk this weekend?

M: Sounds good, but no high-heeled boots this time. I still remember last time you were dog-tired after a long walk in the woods.

Q: What can we infer from this conversation about the woman?

Conversation 2

M: One of the things I do on the weekends is cookout. It is fun to have a barbecue party with friends in the backyard.

W: Have you tried cooking with Coke? The sweetness of Coke adds a nice touch to the barbecue sauce.

Q: What does the woman suggest the man do?

Conversation 3

M: The entry fee is $2 per person. The price for sweet cherry is $10 per kilogram. But you can have a 10 percent discount for the cherries if you pick more than 3 kilograms.

W: Five of us picked 5 kilograms.

Q: How much should the woman pay?

Conversation 4

W: I was advised to take a weight-loss class. But I find it intimidating to exercise in front of others since I’m out of shape.

M: Exercising at home is also a great way to start and it helps build up your confidence.

Q: What do we know from the conversation about the woman?

Conversation 5

M: How about going on a camping trip with us? We are planning on canoeing this weekend.

W: That sounds good. But I’ve never been in a canoe before and I am not much of a swimmer either.

Q: What does the woman mean?

 

Long conversation

Scripts

W: Hello?

M: Hi Amy, it’s Ryan. I’m calling because I want to invite you and your sister Ashley to a dinner party this Saturday. My roommate Erick and I are hosting a 1960s theme party with a few other friends.

W: A theme party? Is that like a dress-up party?

M: Sort of … You’re certainly encouraged to dress in 1960s fashions! Short skirts, bright colors, and bell-bottom jeans! Or go to the beginning of the 1960s and come as one of your favorite actresses … But it’s not just cool clothes; we’ll have food, games, and entertainment inspired by the 1960s. In fact, we’ll start our meal with alien noodles in honor of all those space and alien TV shows.

W: Wait! Wait! What are “alien noodles”? Why not have regular noodles in honor of the movie The Godfather?

M: No way! The Godfather is from the 1970s. Anyway, alien noodles are bright green noodles with purple sauce!

W: What?! That’s crazy!

M: Yeah! Anyway, there’ll be lots of other things. I don’t want to spoil the surprises. But just for you, we’ll end with light desserts and coffee from one of your favorite 1960s movies.

W: I can’t wait! Ooooooh, I have an idea. We can have a special bar and make fancy mixed drinks. They’re always drinking in old TV shows!

M: Perfect! And start reviewing 1960s music! We’re having a dance contest and a singing contest.

W: This sounds like a lot of fun. Can I invite my roommate? She loves all of the classic movies from that time!

M: Of course – the more, the merrier! Anyway, it starts at 7:00 p.m. – my apartment.

1 What do we know about those people who are invited to the party?

2 What is particular about alien noodles?

3 Why won’t they have regular noodles at the party?

4 What other arrangements do they have for the party?

 

Passage 1

Scripts

Since I’m a student, I go to school on weekdays and so I don’t have too much free time. I usually spend six or seven hours at school. After that I either go downtown for some shopping or go home and study. If I have some free time during the week I might read a book or watch TV. Lately my evenings have been spent preparing for my graduation examination, which takes up a lot of time.

Even though I have a lot to do, I still have some free time for leisure activities. On weekends I like to go with my family to our cottage. I like taking long walks around the countryside and I like watching the seasons change. I have the most free time during the summer months. One of my favorite activities is to go canoeing with my friends. We borrow a couple of canoes and choose a nice spot on the river to begin. We spend the day floating down the river. Sometimes if it gets hot we jump in the water and go swimming. Of course we take breaks during the day; we stop along the river to prepare some food or to visit a local pub. In the evening we set up our tents and make a campfire. We spend the evening talking, singing songs, and enjoying nature. We often cook some sausages over the campfire. And one of my favorite things to do is wrap potatoes in foil and then cook them in the hot ashes. These wonderful trips, just like summer, always end too soon.

1 What do we know from this passage about the speaker?

2 What does the speaker like doing on weekends?

3 How do the speaker and his friends spend the day when they go canoeing?

4 What does the speaker most like doing when camping in the evening?

 

Passage 2

Scripts

Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal of rock climbing is to reach the top of a formation or the endpoint of a predefined route without falling. Rock climbing competitions have 1) objectives of completing the route in the quickest possible time or reaching the 2) farthest point along an ever increasingly harder route. While not an Olympic event, rock climbing is 3) recognized by the International Olympic Committee as a sport.

Rock climbing has been 4) separated into several different styles and subdisciplines. At its most basic, rock climbing 5) involves climbing a route with one’s own hands and feet and little more than a cushioned bouldering pad for protection. This style of climbing 6) is referred to as bouldering, since the relevant routes are usually found on boulders no more than 10 to 15 feet tall. As routes get higher off the ground, the increased risk of 7) life-threatening injuries makes additional safety measures necessary. Climbers will usually work in pairs and use a system of ropes and anchors 8) designed to catch fallers.

Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport that tests a climber’s strength, 9) endurance, and balance along with their mental control. It can be a dangerous sport and climbers are 10) putting themselves at risk when they go climbing. However, the risk can be reduced by having the knowledge of proper climbing techniques and using specialized climbing equipment.
