Task 1
GAP INC. LAUNCHES SWEATSHOP ENQUIRY

You are going to listen to a news item about a clothing retailer chain.

A major international clothing chain has launched an enquiry into claims that its suppliers are using
child labour. Gap Inc., which sells its branded clothes worldwide, is meeting with suppliers to
investigate allegations of children being used in sweatshops. The company has already terminated a
contract with one Indian factory. Gap president Marka Hansen told reporters: "It's deeply, deeply
disturbing to all of us. I feel violated and I feel very upset and angry with the subcontractor who
made this very, very, very unwise decision." Gap said it will not sell the garments made in this
factory in its stores. There are fears that some of the abused children are as young as ten. Reports are
that the children work 16 hours a day, often without pay. Factory bosses supposedly beat them with
rubber pipes and put oily cloths in their mouths when they cry.


The chain has 3,000 shops across the globe and is keen to keep its image clean. Senior executive
Dan Henkle said: "Our team in India is conducting a full investigation and we have already made
sure the products will never be sold. Although violations of our strict prohibition on child labour are
extremely rare, we are calling for an urgent meeting with all suppliers in this region to reinforce this
policy." Hansen, meanwhile, wanted the world to know she was taking the matter seriously. She told
CNN: "Gap has a history of addressing challenges like this head-on, and our approach to this
situation will be no exception." She added: "In 2006, Gap ceased business with 23 factories due to
Code of Vendor Conduct violations. We have 90 people located around the world whose job it is to
ensure compliance with our code."

Task 2

Jeff’s documentary

You are going to listen to a conversation about a film.

Debbie: OK, now Jeff, you've been talking about your documentary. Can you talk about how you
actually pitch your documentary? How do you get it out there so people can see it on, on television?

Jeff: Because, like I said before, it's independent so we have no one distributing this for us, or we
didn't sell this before we shot the documentary which is usually the regular process, so it just
requires straight salesmanship, going door-to-door, talking to different channels and stations and
seeing if they're interested, really trying to be convincing and, and making them think that this is
something that the audience really wants. Just door-to-door.

Debbie: OK, so let's say you go into a television studio and you have your documentary on hand,
what do you say? Like, how do you get someone to even look at it?

Jeff: Yeah, that's very difficult. Usually in this world, a good saying is everything is who you know,
and without having a foot in the door somehow, you're usually rejected, so the good thing is that I do
know a few people in a few different countries so I can usually get a connection somehow who
works in a studio or in the television station somewhere and then they're recommended, we're
recommended to them by our friend, so usually it's a foot in the door or someone else.

Debbie: OK, and actually, let's talk about money. Like how did you actually pay for this, this
documentary? I mean, did you put it on credit cards or what?

Jeff: Well, doing a documentary is very expensive, very very expensive, and luckily there's three of
us, three brothers who did this so we split, split the costs and one of the reasons we chose India is
because it's one of the cheapest places in the world, which allowed us a little bit of mobility to stay
as long as we did, and film as long as we did because everything is so cheap there so. And then
yeah, we just put it on credit cards. And all our savings. Spent all our savings on this documentary.

Debbie: So for a filmmaker, or documentary person out there, how do you get your money back?

Jeff: Getting your money back is not easy. Getting a portion of your money back is not easy. If
you're lucky, if it's a good documentary and it's a good idea and it's something the, an audience
wants, then you, you can sell it. You can manage to sell it, but it's, it's a gamble. It's a gamble. It's
like everything else. You might sell it or you might not, so if you do sell it you get your money back,
if you don't, it's a loss so you have to be prepared for that.

Debbie: Well, I hope you strike it rich, Jeff. Good luck.

Task 3
The world’s costliest cities

You are going to listen to a news item about the results of a survey.

Thinking of moving to another world capital? A new report compiled by the human resources
consultancy Mercer suggests you need to think carefully about how costly it is in other parts of the
world. Surprisingly, Mercer ranks Moscow as the world‟s costliest city, with London a close second.
This is bad news for students wanting to study in the Russian and English capitals. Mercer gathers
information on 143 cities around the globe. Its annual survey measures and compares the costs of
more than 200 items, including rent, transportation, food, clothes, household goods and
entertainment. This data is invaluable for companies wishing to open offices in far-off lands. A
Mercer spokeswoman said: “As companies continue to send employees on expatriate assignments,
they must closely monitor changes in the cost of living.”

A major theme of the latest survey is how currency movements have changed the rankings of
different cities. Mercer stated: “There have been some significant changes in the rankings since last
year… These are primarily due to exchange rate fluctuations – in particular the weakening of the
U.S. dollar and the strengthening of the euro.” Last year, London was ranked fifth, but due to a weak
dollar, it has risen three places. Seoul was the third-placed city, followed by Tokyo and Hong Kong,
both down a place from last year. Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay was the cheapest city for expats
for the fifth year in a row. The world‟s most expensive apartments are in Tokyo and the most
affordable are in Johannesburg. The dearest fast food is in Copenhagen. Zimbabwe‟s Harare
dropped off the list this year due to its rates of hyperinflation.

                            INTERACTING WITH CUSTOMERS

My name is Dr. Kenneth Herbst. Harold Lloyd, former President and CEO of Lloyd‟s
Supermarkets and prominent industry speaker, and I recently conducted research on how
customers shop and how products can be merchandised to increase profits, and one of the most
important (0) ___ we discovered was the following:

One simple interaction with your customer is associated with a 23 percent greater ring at the
cashier. In other words, it may pay quite well to simply ask (1) ___ whether they have found
everything for which they are shopping.

Interactions are necessary, especially in the specialty areas of the store in which customers are
choosing, for example, cheese, produce, wine or other items with which they have limited
(2) ___. Customers often have questions but are either afraid to ask or they cannot find an
(3) ___ to whom they can direct a question.

In the cheese area, (4) ___ with gourmet crackers and excited employees who believe in the
sampled product have had a major impact. In the produce area, we often see customers touching
and smelling (5) ___ so they can be confident that the items coming home with them will be
tasty when sliced. However, just as it is hard to judge a book by its cover, it is also difficult to
judge produce simply by the (6) ___ and feel of the peel. Having employees specifically
stationed in the (7) ___ or utilizing televisions with videos that describe how to best select and
prepare various produce items are two ways to increase your interaction rate and top line.

One specific (8) ___ in the area in which I live (Williamsburg, Va.) really excels at interacting in
his store‟s wine area. Wine is a profitable (9) ___ to sell, but consumers often approach the wine
section with trepidation, and due to their hesitancy and reluctance, they often base their
selections on the label and price. With hundreds of bottles from which to choose, the large
number of (10) ___ is simply intimidating. This retailer in southeastern Virginia understands the
(11) ___ of interaction in the wine area. His wine department employees ask customers what
they are having for dinner and then help them choose the appropriate wine pairing for the
(12) ___ being prepared. If you want customers to enjoy selecting wine confidently rather than
simply picking one of the cheaper bottles, have an employee devoted to helping them.

                                 SHUBIE’S MARKETPLACE

He started out doing his mother a favor. In 1977, George Shube returned to help out at Shubie‟s
Marketplace, a neighborhood grocery and wine store in Marblehead, Mass., which his father
opened in 1948. (0) ____

As the store grew, so did its – and its owners‟ – standing as long-time community fixtures. The
Shubes‟ creed is that customers feel a part of their family. (1) ____ “Our mission is for a visit to
Shubie‟s to be the best part of your day and we‟re serious about that,” says Carol Shube.

Shubie‟s has evolved miles from its original incarnation through a physical move of just a few
yards. “We move down the street every few years,” notes George Shube. “Our original store was
literally the size of the deli case we have now. (2) ____”

Shubie‟s began as a 500-square-foot retail shop offering packaged dry goods, but in the 1960s
became one of the first merchants to feature high-quality wines. The business moved to a 2,200-
square-foot facility in 1986. (3) ____ The merchant landed at its third residence, a 10,000-
square-foot space, in February 2005.

“Everything” has grown at the new store, according to George, but his showpiece is the premium
wine wall. Wine accounts for 40 percent of sales, far outpacing all other departments. “We carry
very few commercial wines. (4) ____

Wine is close to Shube‟s heart: It is one of the first areas he grew when he came on board at the
original store. (5) ____ Weekly tastings, though now in-store, continue to this day.

Meanwhile, Carol had a vision of adding specialty foods to the original product mix, and was
challenged to carve out display space in the first tiny shop. “George told me only olive oil and
vinegar – no perishables. You can see I don‟t listen to him,” she jokes.

The move into specialty had clear-cut motivation, says Carol. “We knew we had to stand out,”
she explains. “(6) ____ For surrounding communities to come to shop, we had to become a
destination.”

SHUBIE‟S MARKETPLACE




A      Geographically, Marblehead is in the middle of nowhere.

B      The stock is mostly select items or those brought in from specialty importers,”
       continues George, who travels to California, France, South America, Italy and
       Portugal to develop an eclectic mix of wine, beer and spirits.

C      In the ensuing nearly 30 years, Shube, along with wife Carol, has overseen the store’s
       expansion to a specialty food and wine shop packed with 7,000 shelf-stable and
       freshly prepared items, a cheese case, café and prospering catering and housewares
       departments.

D      Nearby freezer and refrigerated cases house ice creams, pestos, yogurts, artisan soda
       and pre-wrapped sandwiches.

E      He educated himself by attending classes and trade tastings as well as by truly doing
       homework – every week, a core group of customers were invited to his home for a
       tasting and discussion.

F      It was ten feet wide and narrow like a bowling alley.

G      13 years later another significant expansion took place when Shubie‟s doubled its
       size, adding a commercial kitchen, breads, pastries, frozen foods and more specialty
       items.

H      The merchants strive to welcome and engage shoppers during every encounter with
       warm greetings, prompt attention, upbeat music and abundant selections.

You are going to read an article about a new means of payment.

                    YOUR SMALL CHANGE WILL STILL STAY PUT

The introduction of cheques, credit cards, and chip and PIN has gone a long way towards killing
off cash.
        But cash is not dead. If you want to buy a sandwich from your local delicatessen you still
need to have a few spare coins in your pocket or purse. Not for much longer.
        In September the banking industry plans to launch “contactless” credit and debit cards
across the UK which will allow people to purchase items costing less than £10 by simply
swiping their card across a reader.
        You will soon be able to buy a cup of tea or a newspaper without even needing to hand
over your card: just hold it against the reader and the money will be deducted from your account.
The cards will work in exactly the same way as ordinary debit and credit cards but without the
need for memorising a PIN or signing a receipt.
        Bank of Scotland, Barclaycard, Citi, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds TSB, Royal Bank of
Scotland and Euroconex Technologies have all signed up for the scheme. APACS, the UK
payments association, expects other providers to come on board later.
        The trial has been lauded by groups such as Help the Aged, who say that the cards will
provide a simple way of paying for goods and services. APACS says that the UK is already a
card-centric nation and that users should not have any problems getting to grips with the new
system. “Over half of all credit cards in Europe are held in the UK,” says Jennifer Smith,
spokesperson for APACS. “Cards are accepted in more and more places now and more people
are taking on more than one card. Added to this debit cards celebrate their 20th birthday this year
so we have a generation of people in this country who have grown up with cards.”
        Sara Conyers, spokesperson for Barclaycard, says: “Our card also has a built-in
mechanism to prevent misuse. If a lot of transactions are used on the card all of a sudden, the
card will ask for a PIN to make sure it is still in the right hands.”
        Visa Europe and Mastercard, who are leading the scheme, say that in the US they had no
trouble convincing merchants to use the equipment and expect to meet similar enthusiasm in the
UK. “At peak times the technology helps queues to move faster and also reduced the cost and
time taken cashing up,” says Oliver Steeley at Mastercard UK. “The average amount spent by
people also tends to increase because they are not constrained by how much change is in their
pocket.”
        However, it‟s probably too soon to give up on cash altogether as it‟s unlikely that every
retailer will suddenly start sporting contactless card readers. They will need to weigh the
advantages of more customers and speedier service against the cost of the equipment and the
bank charges for handling credit and debit card transactions.

                      Central Market – 95% of the stalls already booked


        Despite the fact that the construction of the covered Central Market is not even near
of the last, finishing phase, 95 per cent of the stands are already sold out.
        The reason for the unbelievable interest for the stalls may first of all be the perfect
location of the site. It is situated right between the commercial and residential areas of
Hippo Town. Central Market can be easily accessed by either car or public transportation as
it has a large parking lot and the most important bus and tram lines have stops nearby.
        The demand for a market of this kind is quite high in this area as there are only
separated small shops in the area. In this new market the customers will get it all – and
fast.
        There are only a few stands left for renting. Most of them are situated near the main
entrance of the building. They are mid-size stalls, perfect for specialized shops.
          The management is planning to support investments in these shops, which will be

Well, let’s start the exam now. First, I’m going to ask you a few questions. If you can’t understand me, I

hosszúságától, de legalább 4 kérdés hangzik el, legalább 3 témakört érintve.)

I see. Let’s talk about something else.

How important are books in your life?
Could you tell me about something you’ve read lately?
