Entry 3, Phase 2, Task 1
  ! 5 minutes                                                Phase 2a
  In this part of the test, you are going to listen to two recordings and answer some questions.
  You can make notes [indicate paper] if you want to.
  You hear two people talking about courses they did recently. [Hand each candidate the task
  sheet.] What does each person say about the course they did? Was it useful, was it
  confusing, or was it boring?

  Listen to the information. [Play recording]

  Listening script 1

  F:   Hi Peter. Did you go on that course yesterday?
  M:   Yes, it was called 'Doing well in job interviews'. You see, I've had five interviews recently, but didn't get any
       of the jobs, which didn’t feel too good. Anyway, a friend of mine did this course last year and said it really
       helped him. But actually it was my wife who said I should do it. I'm not sure it helped me much though.
       One trainer said one thing and then another said the complete opposite. So I'm still very unsure about how
       I can improve. There was something I did enjoy about the day but that was the lunch! And overall it's a pity
       because I really want to have a change of … (fade)



  Listening script 2

  M:   Zina. I haven't seen you recently.
  F:   No, I've been away doing some computer training. We've got some new software in the office and I had no
       idea what to do with it. I saw an advert for this training course, so I asked my manager to let me do it. It
       was a good idea because the course was a great help. Normally I find anything to do with computers a bit
       boring but in fact I was surprised how much I learnt in just two days. There's another, more advanced
       course I could go on but actually I think I know enough already. So what I’m planning to do as soon as
       possible is to train my colleagues. And I'm looking forward to seeing how well … (fade)




  _______________ (Candidate A), in the first recording, what does the man say about the course
  he did? Was it useful, was it confusing, or was it boring?
  Thank you.

  ________________ (Candidate B), in the second recording, what does the woman say about the
  course she did? Was it useful, was it confusing, or was it boring?
  Thank you. [Take back task sheet.]

  Now listen again, and answer these questions.

  ________________ (Candidate B), in the first recording, who told the man to do the course?
  [short pause] And what was the only thing he liked?
  ________________ (Candidate A), in the second recording, how did the woman find out about
  the course? [short pause] And what is she going to do next?
  [Play recording again: scripts as above. At the end of the recording ask each candidate in turn their
  two questions again. After each question, wait for the candidate's response.]
  Thank you.
