Speaker I: well, I didn‘t really have the qualifications for the job, at least not on paper, but
            anyway, I got an interview, which was absolute hell, and afterwards I thought ―well, it
            was worth a try‖, but I was sure I hadn‘t Then, a couple of days later, they rang up
            and offered it to me . You know, it was only a few weeks later I found out that they‘d
            intended to give it to someone else with the same surname, and I‘d second on the list,
            But I‘m still there, so I suppose I‘m OK
[Pause]
Speaker 2: I‘ve always loved selling and marketing and had several jobs that before this particular
            job Mr Kelly, he‘s the director, offered me the job at the interview, and I turned it
            down but he rang me again a few days later to see if I‘d been having second thoughts,
            I had, I‘m glad to say.
[Pause]
Speaker 3: My motorbike, broke down And I had to wait around while if was being repaired Yeah,
            so I bought a local paper and went into a café and read it and happened to see the
            advert for the job I thought ―I‘ll have a go at that ‖, and rang up. It was just down the
            road and they said, ―Come s long right a way‖. I knew a bsolutely nothing about this
            line of work then, but they must nave liked my face at the interview or something.

[Pause]
Speaker 4: Never be late for a job interview because you won‘t get the job! I ever so nearly was.
            Would you believe it? The train broke down on the way There I was –stuck miles
            from where I was going But actually we were in a station and I realized Id never
            make the interview and got off the train Well,! got talking to someone outside and
            they offered me a lift and I arrived early for the interview ,in the end
[Pause]
Speaker 5: They ran up and offered me the job, and I was really thankful, because ld been out of
            work for ages and was beginning to think ld never get anything What l mow know so
            that I was the only person who tuned up for interview Apparently a couple of other
            people were asked but never came. So l got it because they had no choice although
            they could nave advertised it again l suppose Glad they didn‘t.

  Woman: Now turn to part 3. Questions 14-23
               Look at the ten statements for this part,
           You will heat pare of a public meeting held to discuss plans for a new town.
          Decide if you think each statement is tight. Wrong or not mentioned.
          Mark your answers on the Answer Sheet
  Chairman: Ladies and gentlemen, as you know, this extraordinary meeting of the Metcalf
                 Council has been of our village.
                           Now, we‘ve been joined toning by Mr Ken Lester, a member of the team
                      which drew up the plan and I‘d like to begin by asking to outline the thinking
                      behind the scheme.
  Lester:    Thank you, Mr Chairman, Ladies and gentlemen, my main aim in coming here tonight
               is to explain to you the reasons for the planning committees decision to locate the new
               town near Metcalf…
 Mrs Thomas: Ah, so it‘s a decision, is it? You mean there‘s no point in our discussing it-You‘ve
                already made up your minds?
 Chairman: Order please, ladies and gentlemen, we must hear the facts first…
  Lester:       Perhaps l should re-phrase that-the new is, of course, no more than a project at the
               moment, Now, the population in the county is growing rapidly as a result of the new
               industries coming to the area, and this has brought with it a great demand for housing,
               As you know, the main urban center: in the area, Maple, Mapleford-sorry-and Trentham, are already
               overcrowded. So we have to find sites outside the town to house these people.
  Mrs west: Mr Chalrman!
  Chairman: Yes, Mrs West, you have a point to make?
  Mrs West: Why does it have to be on our doorstep? Cant you see that a development like this
               would change the whole nature of this locality?
  Lester:    West, Mrs West.
  Lester:    The countryside must indeed be preserved and it‘s the sort of area you describe. as yet
               unspoilt. Which most deserves our protection Metcalf, on the other hand already has
               2,000 inhabitants and it could hardly be described as one of the most picturesque
               villages in the county…
Mrs Thomas: You don‘t know what you‘re talking about do you?
Chairman: Mrs Thomas, will you sit down please and let Mr Lester continue.
Mrs Thomas: No, l certainly won‘t! Lt‘s peoples lives were discussing here not a sightseeing trip for
              tourists! Now you tell me what‘s going to happen when this so-called new town is
              built and we‘ve got four times as many people here, l‘m sure we can look forward to
              enjoying four times as many facilities, cant we? There‘ll be three new swimming
              pools, six new schools three pubs …oh and three new doctors surgeries…
  Lester: …..er, of course, that‘s not really my area…I‘m merely responsible for housing and the
               provision of adequate transport facilities.
Mrs Thomas: Oh no it isn‘t your area, is it, mate? its our area-and we intend to keep it that way…
  Pause-repeat-pause
  Woman: That is the end of part Three, You mow have one minute to copy your answers on to
               your Answer Sheet.
Pause
Woman: Now turn to part 4 questions 24-30.
         You will hear a woman giving advice on how to give a good presentation For questions
          24-30, indicate which of the alternatives A, B, or C is the most appropriate response.
          Mark one letter A, B or C on Answer Sheet.
Woman: When you‘re making a presentation your posture can affect the quality of your voice The
          way you stand you know the position of your head, neck and shoulders and feet and so
          on is important Check that your feet are parallel and apart and your weight is slightly
          forward on your feet. Make sure that your knees are relaxed; as if you are tense your
          back will suffer. Pay special attention to your head Look straight ahead and don‘t push
          your neck out or drop it on to your chest: I had a man come to see me once as he was
          constantly losing his voice. It was all due to his habit of sticking his neck forward which
          was putting pressure on his throat. He sounded quite squeaky when he spoke. What he
          should have been doing was keeping his ears in line with his shoulders. Your head
          should feel as though it‘s floating on top of your body! So watch that.
      Now most of us feel quite nervous before we speak in public. You‘ll feel better if you spend
            some time dealing you feel this way. That way you can have some control over it. Next,
            try and locate the area of tension in your body. Often it‘s your neck or you‘re to relax
            them. Believe me, it works!
      Let‘s think about what you say, now. To macimise your performance make sure you are
            wellprepred. Look over your notes, practice what you want to say, preferably out loud,
            and then, perhaps most important of all, try to feel you really want to share your
            subject with your audience .If you feel and share your enthusiasm with them, you‘re
            more than half-way there.
      Remember that how people feel about you and what you a2re saying to them will depend
            on your body language. There are three main behaviour types; passive, Aggressive and
            Assertive You can use any of these types, although l think the assertive and Assertive.
            You can use any of these types, although l think the assertive posture is one that suits
            most occasions best.
      The passive body type has a withdrawn posture. You may fidget a bit with your hands and
            hair. In fact I remember a well-known politician who whenever he was speaking would
            constantly massage the top of his head. So beware of those funny little mannerisms.
            They can become intensely irritating to an audience.
      If your posture is aggressive, however, you tend to be quite rigid. You could be constantly
            swinging your leg or crossing your arms and clenching your fists and the audience will
            feel uncomfortable. Your voice will often sound harsh or sharp and your audience may
            then feel quite aggressive towards you and that‘s something you don‘t want if your aim
            is to get them to see your point of view.
      That brings me to the assertive posture. Now you‘re standing straight, feeling comfortable
            and calm with your arms hanging loosely at your sides. In this position there is
            minimal tension and you voice is full, clear and varied. You‘re a delight to listen to.
      Finally, a few do‘s and don‘ts when it comes to looking after your voice, especially before
            giving a speech or whatever. It‘s a bit obvious but avoid smoky areas, and alcohol. Too
            drink plenty of fluids, especially things like fruit juice or even coffee or tea and keep
           your throat moist while you‘re speaking.
      That‘s it, ladies and gentlemen. We shall going on…

Woman: Well, I think the meeting went well today.
Man:     Yes, it did. But it‘s good to have a break from business.
Woman: So what do you do when you‘re not working?
Man:     Well, as I sit at a desk most of the day, I like to try and keep fit
                 I do quite a lot of sports.
Woman: Oh, yes. What do you do?
Man:     I enjoy cycling. Mountain biking actually.
Woman: Really? I didn‘t know there was any water around here.
Man:     Well, there‘s a couple of lakes nearby. But I prefer to go away- weekend breaks. What
         about yourself? Do you do any sports?
Woman: Well, I try and go jogging a couple of times a week. But I‘m not really interested in
         sports. I love gardening. Otherwise I refer to relax. I love going to the cinema. And I‘m
         a real bookworm.
Man:     Really. What kind of things do you like reading?
Woman: Well, there‘s nothing that beats a really good murder!
Man:     You don‘t look the type for that!

Woman: Now turn to part two questions 9-13
                 You will hear five journalists giving reasons for their success.
                 For Questions 9-13. Match the extracts with you hear with the people listed A-F,
                 Use the letters only once.
Speaker 1: I think I‘m successful because all my articles have a… something that readers can
            immediately recognise as mine. Now what‘s important is now I say things. Of course
            I do say interesting things, and give my readers truthful information. But above all,
            what my readers like is the fact that what I write was a distinctive voice, you know,
            they would know I wrote it even if my name is not there.
         Pause
Speaker 2: Well, I‘ve always thought that when you write an article, you must be sure of your
            facts, I make sure very single one is correct, and I think that‘s my strong point if your
            readers find out that, for example, that something you said happened in 1970. in
            reality happened in 1980, or., worse still, did not happen at all…they won‘t trust you
            again. Producing a beautifully written article, on a subject everyone‘s talking,
            producing a beautifully written article, on a subject everyone‘s talking about…is a
            waste of time if you‘ve got the facts wrong…
Speaker 3: Why I‘m a successful journalist? I think it has to do with the fact that I always
            concentrate on the moat important event of the day…you know, when there‘s been a
             disaster, for example, there‘s no point in writing about anything else because nobody
             will be talking about anything else! I‘ll try to say something original about the subject,
             but the main thing is my readers know that I‘ll deal with what‘s on their minds that
             day. And they like that.
Pause
speaker 4: I think my readers like my stuff because, well, first of all I rely on my personal
            experience a lot. Of courser not to include too much much detail about myself, that
            wouldn‘t be right…You see, the main point in this way, I can put a great deal
            of…emotion into what I write. If something makes me angry. Or sad, I say it. And I
            never have to pretend I care, I really do care. Insincerity no good I mean if you are
            insincere, readers will know.
            Pause
Speaker 5: Well, my columns are packed information that could help readers who are experiencing
            difficulties in their daily lives, and I believe this is the secret of my success…There‘ll
            be some advice for people who are buying a house for the first time, for example, or
            for parents who are worrying about whether their daughter will get into
            university…And never bore my readers with my feelings about things No one really
            wants to hear about your personal ups and downs.

      Pause-repeat-pause
Man:       That is the end of part 2. You now have one minute to copy your answers on to your
            Answer sheet.
         Pause
Woman: Now turn to part 3,questions 14-23.
               Look at the statements for this part.
                 You will hear part of a radio programmed in which a doctor talks about jetlag.
                 Decide if you think each statement is right. Wrong or not mentioned. Mark your
                 answers on the Answer sheet.
Doctor: Jet lag is the result of your physical and mental faculties literally lagging behind those
            of people living in the country you‘re visiting. At least that‘s true if you‘re flying east.
            Flying west you‘ll be ahead, so ‗jet lead‘ might be more appropriate. Either way,
            you‘re unlikely to be at your best when you land.
                     There are over 50 physiological and psychological rhythms that can be upset
            by jet lag, and they don‘t all get back to normal at the same rate. Tests have shown
            that jet lag can cause up to 10%decrease in mental speed, accuracy and vigilance.
                  Irritability is just one effect. The longer your journey, the shorter your temper,
            your attention span and
       your memory. You may also feel exhausted.
       Fuzzyheaded, sleepy waking hours, and hungry outside mealtimes. So what can you do
       about it? There are certainly ways of reducing its unpleasant effects. Um. You could stare
       by being young. Children adjust to time changes much more quickly than adults. (Babies
       under three months haven‘t yet formed any clear biological rhythms.)
             You can also try some pre-flight adaptation. If you‘re going east, go to bed and get
       up earlier; going west, make it later. Also shift your meal times in the appropriate direction.
            Once you‘re on the plane, take it easy generally. If you can‘t sleep, relax. If you have
     to drink, drink plenty of water or water or fruit juice and go easy on the alcohol, if you want
     to eat, remember your digestive system is all over the place.
            As a rough guide, it takes about a day per time zone to recover fully. Australia to
      Great Britain for example takes you through tem time zones. So it‘s beat to start with some
      time off to relax and acclimatize. Don‘t rush into any meetings.
            If you can arrange it, arrive on a Saturday and have the weekend to your eyes open
      with matchsticks, but it‘s easier to will yourself to stay awake than it is to will yourself to
      walk around and take in the sights- activity is a good antidote to sleepiness.
            To sum up then, there is no instant solution to jet lag-there are only certain things you
      can do to help your body adjust to the different tine zone as…

Woman: Now turn to part 4, questions 24-30.
            Look at the questions for this part.

            move its premises.

            appropriate response.
          Mark one letter A B or C on the Answer sheet.
Woman: John-I‘ve just heard the company is moving out of these offices. I can‘t believe it!
Man:       it‘s true. They made the final decision yesterday.
Woman: Who did?
Man:       Um well…
Woman: There wasn‘t a board meeting yesterday, was there?
Man:       I don‘t think so. A vote was actually taken by all the heads of departments.
Woman: Ah so it wasn‘t just Finance saying what should happen. It usually is…And where are
          we going? I like it here. I don‘t want to move my whole family to a new city none of us
          knows.
Man:     You won‘t have to. We‘re not moving far away. We‘re only going to Kenton…
Woman: Kenton?
Man:     You know, that new development. You must have noticed all the new building work
            going on, off the main road just as you cone into the city.
Woman: Oh yes I‘ve read about it. Is everyone who works here going, do you know, john?
Man:     Almost everyone, you know, Finance, sales, pubic Relations…
Woman: Aha, so I will be going.
Man:       Yes, though customer services are staying in the city center for center for another year..
Woman: …so the public know where we are…
Man:         Exactly. Fiona, it‘s going to be great. It‘s going to be much better there.
Woman: In what way There‘ll be a better place for us to have lunch, I hope. The food here is
            getting worse every day.
Man:         I don‘t know about that. But from what I‘ve seen there‘s going to be a lot more space
              than we‘ve got at the moment and more rooms where we can have meetings.
Woman: Nice. And some sports facilities would be a good idea, wouldn‘t they?
Man:        They would but not at the moment, I‘m afraid.
Woman: Oh well. Won‘t this move cost a lot of money?
Man:      Why should it? I think the idea is to save money.
Woman: Are the offices in a mew building or an old one?
Man:      Oh, it‘s completely new, but it won‘t cast nearly as much as the rent on these city center
          offices.
Woman: Oh, Are we getting mew office furniture, then, to go in this new building?
Man:       We are, someone‘s designing it specially but that isn‘t rally expensive. What is
          expensive is investing in new computers, everything to be totally up to date.
Woman: Ooh, now that sounds exciting.
Man:      It does, doesn‘t is? Actually, only one thing that worries me about the move.
Woman: What‘s that? Being the only business out at Kenton?
Man: Other firms‘ll soon join us when they see how cheap it is in Kenton. Actually, Actually,
          it‘s those of u s without cars that might have a problem. I don‘t think there is much of a
          bus service. It‘s something the company will have to look at.
Woman: And what about shops? A lot of staff like going to the shops in the lunch hour.
Man:      Well there are definitely some in Kenton.
Woman: Good!
Man:      Actually, Fiona, there is one rather interesting thing about this move. A lot of people are
          going over to new working contracts.
Woman: What! And what does that mean exactly? Does it mean we all lose our permanent
          contracts?
 Man: It doesn‘t, actually. In this case it means people can set up a sort of office in their home
          if their work is suitable.
Woman: Uh huh. So it doesn‘t mean we have to work longer hours, or something?
Man: I don‘t think so.
Woman: John, you seem to know a lot about it. Are you in charge of arranging everything?
Man:      I‘m very happy to tell you it‘s someone else‘s job. All I‘ve got to do is inform people
          about the move…
Woman: Mmm-you‘re doing very well.
Man:      …except questions about contracts, hours and so on of course.
Woman: Well, the personnel Department does that, don‘t they?
Man:      Exactly. And now I must get on…

Woman: Now turn to part Two. Questions 9-13.
        You will hear five different people talking about the activities they enjoy.
        For Questions 9-13. choose from the list A-F what each speaker says about his or her
        activity. Use the letters only once.
        There is one extra letter which you do not need to use.
Speaker 1: Well, I suppose I really took up yoga when I left school because there- at school, I
            mean- they made us take part in all these team games and well, you know it was all
            about who won and who was best, That‘s not really me I was looking for something
            more um well, more individual really, where I could work within my own limits and
            not be obliged to compete all the time. So, I an just shut myself away in my room and
            get on with it.
Speaker 2: Yes, what I really like about cycling is getting out into the countryside at the
            weekends and just riding along in the fresh air I sometimes go for miles not really
            thinking about anything I find it quite restful in a way you know, just getting away
            from the stress of living and working in a big city we often go as a family And then
            well, by Monday morning I‘m all refreshed and ready for work again.
Speaker 3: Well, I usually go swimming two or three evenings a week, after work, sometimes I
            go with colleagues and sometime on my own, it keeps me fit, you know ,and
            reasonably slim I learnt when I was about five and I lived it and I‘ve always kept it up
            I think that everybody should learn whether you want to win races or just get a bit of
            exercise.
Speaker 4: Mountaineering always attracted me even as a child maybe where we lived was
            really flat I‘ve always dreamed of climbing Mount Everest one day-I suppose all
            climbers see that as the ultimate challenge, The highest I‘ve been so far since I started
            climbing at the university was last year when I went to south America it was fantastic
            The great thing is everyone has a part to play. Everyone has to rely on everyone else
            and you all work together to get to the top.
Speaker 5: I only started skiing about three years ago so I‘m not very good yet I love getting up
            into the mountains, especially early in the morning before there are too many people

Woman: Look at the ten abatements for this part.
          You will hear an interview about the effects of high of noise in discotheques on
            people‘s hearing.
            Decide if you think each statement is right wrong or not mentioned.
            Mark your answers on the Answer Sheet.
Woman:     I spoke to Environmental Health officer peter Johnson-I‘ll say that again: peter
            Johnson- about this and asked him if regular attendance at clubs or concerts could
            lead to deafness.
Man:      Well, yes, yes it could um it‘s a difficult question, because it is an unknown factor just
            how many times, how many times a person attends a discotheque per week, and of
            course the discotheques in themselves vary with the sound and –er – there is a risk,
            well yes, there is a risk.
Woman: So when you say ‗noise dose over a given period‘ if I went out to a club, how often
            would I have to go to be at risk?
Man:        Well, er it‘s estimated, it‘s estimated by Southampton University, they‘ve recently set
            up a Hearing Conservation Unit, they‘ve estimated that three times a week to one of
            the louder discos is er could be could be quite sufficient to cause er noise induced
            hearing loss at a later stage in life.
Woman: That means effectively you‘re going to go stone deaf?
Man:        Well no no, not stone deaf, no no. what would disappear out of out of the speech and
            so speech would become extremely difficult to comprehend.
Woman: I believe that personal stereos have created another hazard for hearing.
Man:        They have, yes ,yes they have. There were some 400.000 personal stereos sold in
            0982 and –er-this was published in a report by John Bickerdyke, a lecturer at Leeds
            Leeds University arm we‘re not we‘re not quite sure how many have been sold since,
            but obviously, obviously it‘s going to be a multiple of that figure The small personal
            stereo system is quite capable of producing eves which in industry for instance could
            only be tolerated for or should only be tolerated for a period of it‘s say well half an
            jour a day um now if you couple the personal sterol issue with the discotheque
            attendance, then you have then of course you‘ve got a problem .
Woman: Looking on the positive vide what can people do what would you suggest people do?
Man:        Well, arm, in the in the Bickerdyke Report it was suggested that a code of practice
            should be drawn up As far as I‘m aware that hasn‘t been drawn up to date the
            obligation being under the health and safety executive but the code of practice the
            code of practice does in fact suggest that management should control the levels
            withies the discotheques er you know distances, distances from loudspeakers should
            be controlled to a minimum of two meters access to the active loudspeaker.

Woman:        Now turn to part 4 questions 24-30.
              Look at the questions for this part.
              You will heat a radio interview about the sportswear industry For questioims 24-30,
            indicate whoosh of the alternatives A B or C is the moat appropriate response.
Woman : The tremendous growth of the sportswear industry has been one of the great success
            stories of recent years sportswear manufacturers have made a great del of money.
            Here with me in the studio to talk about this Martin Donkey of k and G limited who in
            recent years have become one of the country‘s
               Leading manufacturers of sportswear Martin- notice you aren‘t wearing sports
                 shoes or a tracksuit.
Man:       Not at the moment sue Bur I was earlier this morning.
Woman: Can we start off by looking at where people are going for their sportswear?
Man:         Well, Traditionally, up to the end of the 80s shall we say, sportswear was prod used
            almost exclusively by sportswear specialists and passed on to the department stores to
            be sole I n ten last 5 years there‘s been an interesting development of the mail –order
            business but most sportswear by far is still produced by sports companies like our
            own and then retailed through our specialist outlets.
Woman: Approximately what proportion of expenditure on all clothing in and footwear is spent
            on sportswear? Do you know?
Man:       I‘m not absolutely sure of the very latest figures, but it‘s something in the region of
            9 %. That includes expenditure on children‘s sportswear, what I think is mores
            interesting or surprising is that a recent survey showed that last year 38% of
            sportswear was purchased by adults not for use as sports clothes, not I mean to play a
            sport but just as casual clothes leisure activities.
Woman: You say audits But my impression is that it is the young who buy this sort of clothing I
            mean my mother hasn‘t bought any sports shoes yet and they‘ve in fashion for years
            I‘m not sure she will buy any mow.
Man:       of course it basically is a youth market However one surprising fact is that the 15-24
            age-group is in fact getting smaller and will continue to do so for a few more years,
            The size of this group has fallen from 9.3 million in the mid 1980s to something like
            7and a halt million now And yet the sportswear market has expanded considerably
            during this same period it can‘t be simply a youth market.
Woman: What do you see as the reason for the development in sportswear?
Man:         It‘s hard, if not impossible to give you any sing reason, There are even plenty of
            reasons why its shouldn‘t have happened, such as the rising coats of production social
            conditions have greatly helped. The market couldn‘t have grown to its present size
            without the relaxation in codes of dress that has taken place since the late 60s, we
            have relaxed some of our rules, This has allowed sports participants to wear their
            tracksuits and sports shoes for many other activities they were not designed for.
Woman: And how do you see the future for sportswear?
Man:        I expect increased competition between the manufacturers to produce more attractive
            and fashionable materials I don‘t expect this to affect the number of manufacturers
            active in the market place but it could well bring the prices down.
Woman: Will we be wearing the same sportswear products then five years from now?
Man:       Almost definitely, This is not just a passing fashion it will last people and looking fit
            are putting an ever increasing emphasis on the importance of feeling, and looking fit
            and healthy Most experts believe that sportswear will actually increase its market
            share over r the next few years there are tow main reasons for this Firstly despites.

Woman: Good afternoon, Mr Berkeley, I understand you work for one of the major
            merchant banks in the City of London I wonder if you could tell me what you
            see as being the main functions of a merchant bank?
Man:       The fundamental function of any merchant bank is to solve a problem And it
            must be specifically a financial problem, and it must be a problem which
            cannot be normally solved by a friendly banker around the corner.
Woman:    I wonder if you could give me a brief run down of the types of services a
           merchant bank can offer an individual company.
Man:      Well, I think perhaps it is best in the rapist instance to start off by emphasizing
           the range of services which a merchant bank can offer it is not basically a
           lending system though it will lend quite a large amount of money to companies
           or to individuals or more particularly to finance thongs such as aircraft or ships
           The second area apart from lending money to people ,is the management of
           people‘s actual business financial affairs,…
Woman:    Money manager or round manage?
Man:       Yes, and I‘m thinking in this contest of a company which wishes to know
           where to place its surplus cash at the best rate where to borrow from where to
           buy how to buy, how to buy a company where to raise the funds to buy another
           company to whether its development should be along this line or that line of a
           company wants to use the services to raise funds for it ,it has to satisfy the
           merchant bank that it is firstly sensibly organized financially.
Woman:    Could you Mr Berkeley could you explain a bit for my audience?
Man:      That is it the company has a management which can carry out the general
           functions that it has a product which people want to buy That is it‘s going to be
           a benefit to the bank either to take to the public or to lend money to Our
           accountants will look hard at the market, certainly check on all the optimistic
           hopes of the company because almost invariably bankers cut everybody‘s
           forecasts in half erm and at the nod of that time the merchant bank will advise
           the company what form it thinks it should get its money and the best way to do
           so Quite often it will want to take a share of the equity of that company and
           quite usually it would require a seat on the board.
Woman:    Er if you decide to advance money to a particular company, what sort of terms
           is it usual for a merchant bank to make such advances?
Man:       Very few bankers will ever lend money unsecured and therefore what one has
           to do is establish the value of the security tech it‘ll offer I think that this is one
           of the points which makes the business attractive to a merchant bank and
           allows it to extend money on a greater risk basis than that of the more
           traditional lending systems Er what one what a merchant bank inevitably
           evolves into a marketable proposition for the stock Exchange It‘s difficult for
           people to forecast success, but this is the point which a merchant bank will
           look for when it is looking at a company can it in fact take this company to
           market and then remain a trusted adviser.

Woman: Now turn to Part Two, questions 9-13
             You will hear five different people talking about their jobs.
             For Questions 9-13, choose which of the opinion A-F each speaker expresses.
             Use the letters only once.
             There is one extra letter which you do not need to use.
Speaker 1: Well being a hotel receptionist suits me down to the ground I mean I never
               dreamt I‘ d end up doing so little but getting a decent s alary I thought when
               I started that it was going to be a struggle to keep up with everything but it‘s
               turned out to be absolutely ideal There‘s MOTHING I can‘t deal with and
               some days I‘m even looking for things to do I‘m not sure if it‘s always going
               to be like that but right now I just can‘t believe my luck!
 Speaker 2: I might not be making much at the moment but I reckon I will be before too
               long. You know the other day the boss came up to me and said, ―Carry on
               like this and you‘ll really go places here. You‘ve got a real gift for selling on
               the phone ‖ well I was pretty busy at the time and I didn‘t take it in till I got
               home and then I thought, ―Nobody in that place has ever said anything like
               that to me before. I could be on my way up‖
Speaker 3: What‘s really different about this computing job for me is that, for once I don‘t
               nave anyone breaching down my own room without anyone bothering me
               I‘ve got a lot of responsibility actually, and I have to watch what decisions I
               make but at least I don‘t have people criticizing me all day of course I don‘t
               get involved in the office gossip, but well, I don‘t really miss all that.
Speaker 4: I know this might sound daft, because the job itself is actually rather dull, but I
            can‘t wait to go in there in the morning it doesn‘t take me long to get there and
            the journey back‘s just as quick but what I really like is how much fun the
            others might not end up doing it for long but we have such a laugh that it
            makes up for how boring the work is.
Speaker 5: What appeals to me is that I never know what‘s going to come up from one
               day to the next. Sometimes there‘s not that much on and I can get away early,
               and other times it‘s frantic and I have to stay on late it‘s certainly good
               experience if I want to go to a bigger travel agency one day, but I‘ve no
               plans to at the moment I mean, there‘s always something new to learn
               something unexpected to deal with.

Woman: Now turn to part 3 questions 14-23
          Look at the ten statements for this part, You will neat a man doing a profile
          presentation of Bangkok capital city of Thailand Decide if you think each
          statement is right wrong or not mentioned.
         Mark your answers on the Answer sheet.
        Bangkok is an expression of the Thais ‗ respects for tradition coupled with their
        vibrant involvement with modem progress, it is the capital in every sense of the
        word it is where the royal Family resides, it is the seat of government and
        administration and it is the focal point for virtually all major industrial,
        commercial and financial activity it is the country‘s main port and home to one
        tenth of the Kingdom‘s population and with 9 universities a position as the
        educational center of Thailand such and all important role is reflected in the
        capital‘s proper name in Thai, Wrung Thep. this translates as city of angels in
        English .
          Bangkok is a relatively recent capital city, reflecting the many invasions from
      and wars with surrounding nations Bangkok was established as the capital in 1782,
      based on what was then only a village situated on the banks of the Chao phraya
      River, 25 kilometers from the Gulf of Thailand.
               From its small, village beginnings the city mow has a population of over 6
         million, spread out over a huge area in contrasts to the rest of the mostly rural
         nation it is undoubtedly the most advanced place in the country with most of
         Thailand‘s wealth concentrated there the population and surface area are still
         increasing as the city attracts people seeking opportunities, and fortunes from all
         over the country.
               Bangkok has to be seen to be believed it is famous culturally for the
         beautiful architecture of its royal residences and temples there are over 400 of
         them it is impossible to understand the fascination unless you have heard the
         temple bells jangling in the breeze, seen the sun setting in a blaze of gold behind
         the dark outlines of up-curved roofs smelled bananas baking on a pavement stall
         or tasted mangoes straight from the tree.
               Of course there are also the horrors I‘d been warned about urban pollution,
         traffic jams in which you wonder why you traveled thousands of miles just to sit
         motionless in a taxi for a couple of hours urban development that has noting to
         do with ancient Thai culture.

        appropriate response.

Woman: Well Jim can we start by going through a typical day for you?
Man:    I usually get up at around 5 am I drive in from my horse to the office in London I
        get very frustrated sitting in traffic jams so I leave early to beat the rush enjoy
        to beat the rush I enjoy driving in it‘s nice to get away on my own.
Woman: That‘s certainly an early start!
 Man:      Yes well, at 6.30am I get into the office I use the time to get through my post and
           do the things that are difficult to do during the moral working day because of
           people wanting to see me Between the hours of 8 and 9 I take care of any
           European business which needs doing.
 Woman: that a schedule! Do you find it exhausting?
 Man:      Exhausting, no But, unfortunately most of my time is spent in the meetings now,
           which doesn‘t really suit my type of personality I much prefer the hands- on
           approach – I would rather be out chatting to people than sitting in the boardroom
           preparing policies and strategies –bet that is a luxury I can‘t afford.
 Woman: Could you tell us how you started with your company hacker?
 Man:      I got into hacker almost by accident I was chief executive of a meat trading firm
           called FMC Harris, which was subject to a hostile take-over At 9 am one morning
           my boss was fired, and by 9.10 am I was out too. I spent eight weeks with no job,
           a wife and children to support and a house to pay for then I as approached by
           Hacker to set up a UK branch US to discuss it I was chasing them!
 Woman: it‘s a big company who do you actually work with on a daily basis?
  Man: The rest of the management team arrives at around 9 am I work closely with a
           team of six including my PA Alice Lang she is an integral part of the management
           system I was lucky to find her as it‘s almost impossible to find the right person
           for the job The ideal employee is someone who is willing to work hard and
           someone who can adapt to the way we work.
 Woman: Uh-huh Right, so let‘s get you up to lunch-time After your early start you must be
           ready for lunch quite early too.
 Man:      Yes though the actual time varies from day to day I try to a void business I unties
           because I still have the afternoon ahead to contend with I don‘t enjoy lengthy
           meals so I usually just have a sandwich in the office with Alice.
Woman: And are there any changes planned for the future?
 Man:       people ask me of I get frustrated or bored, but the job changes constantly this
            year we are moving away from wholesale office sale and more into high street
            retail sales of home computers this is mew ground for hacker and presents me
            ninth a fresh set of challenges.
 Woman: Jim, we hear a lot about people working long hours these days when do you
