Q 32 Audioscript B2

Speaker A

My family and I always go to our summer home in the countryside. It’s a great way to relax, and I do enjoy it, but because we go there often it’s not so exciting to go. I would prefer to visit a new place, somewhere full of excitement and adventure. So next summer, we’ve decided to travel to Italy. I’m really looking forward to it, and I’ve even started to learn a hit of Italian to prepare.

Speaker В

I recently went on a camping trip with my dad. It was the first time Id ever been camping. It was great being in the woods, and I found that it taught me how to take care of myself. We had to cook our own meals and be on the lookout for anything unusual, such as a wild animal finding us. My dad was helpful, of course, but I wanted to do things on my own. I hope we go again soon.

SpeakerC

We were really looking forward to going to the beach for a relaxing three-day weekend. We piled a bunch of stuff in the car, including ourselves, and set off for the sea. On the way, the car developed engine trouble and we had to find a garage. When we got to the beach, an awful storm came and it started raining. The weather never really got better. I wished we had just stayed home!

SpeakerD

My parents had promised me that once my exams were finished, wed go on holiday. It was nice to have something to look forward to after the studying and stress. We went to a lake in the countryside and rented a cottage. We rowed boats and swam. It was so relaxing, especially after all the studying Id done. I’m sure my parents enjoyed getting away from their busy jobs as well.

SpeakerE

My family and I recently took a trip to the countryside. We had a great time, riding bikes and exploring nature. But while we were riding along a country road one day, the sky suddenly became dark, as if the sun just disappeared. As it turns out, there was a solar eclipse that day. It was amazing — you could even see stars in the sky, in the middle of the afternoon! What a great thing to experience on holiday.

Hi, Anna. How was the concert last night?

Well, it was OK. I really liked the hand, hut we had to wait a very long time before they went on stage.

Oh really? That’s too bad.

Yeah, it was so disappointing. I think some people even left.

Well, these things happen with concerts sometimes.

I know, but I’ve never experienced it before. When you pay so much for a ticket, you don’t expect to have to wait!

Did they play at the stadium?

No, it was at Brent Park, just at the edge of town.

Oh, that’s nice. I’ve been there before. It’s very open and there’s lot of grass to sit on if you want. It’s a nice place for a concert.

The location was great, I will say. When did you go there?

It was last summer. I went with a couple of friends at the weekend. We had a terrific time. It was late in the evening, and we didn’t have to wait so long for the band to perform, like you did.

I’m sure it was just a one-time thing. What band did you see?

They’re called In Flight. They’re a rock band.

Oh, I’ve heard of them. They’re supposed to be good, aren’t they?

I loved them. Actually there were two bands, but we went to see In Flight. The first band played pop music, and I wasn’t too keen on them.

Who was it?

I don’t remember their name. I wouldn’t want to remember it, actually!

Wow, were they that bad? Well, sometimes the opening acts are good, but in the end it doesn’t matter if the main attraction is spectacular. That’s why we choose the concerts we go to anyway, for the main performance.

Yes, definitely. Are you planning to go to another concert soon?

Anna:

My friends and I are actually going to listen to some classical music in a couple of weeks. That’s quite a change from a rock concert. Do you like classical music?

I’m not really sure, to be honest, but my friend Sarah’s brother plays the violin in the group and he’ll be performing. Would you like to join us? That sounds great. I’ve never been to a classical music performance, actually, but I like classical music.

Great! I’ll let you know the details. I’m glad you’re coming!

Hi Debra,

Thanks for your last letter. I’m glad to hear you’ve taken up a sport. Here’s my advice for your problem.

To improve your performance, I suggest you practise on your own for a while. If you spend some time at the weekend making shots with the ball, this will help you during the game.

Eor me, I prefer individual sports, like athletics and running. I don’t like playing in a team, so this suits me better. I spend about an hour each day doing sport. I’d like more time, but I have lots of homework to do!

Let me know how things go with your basketball practice.

Bye for now,

Lida

Amazing excitement celebrities healthy unpleasant dislike

Exams are very important because if you do badly in them, you may have to repeat the class. Exams show your teacher and parents — and you — what you’ve learned and what you need to study again.

Task 1 sample answer:

School trips are an opportunity for students to leave the classroom, and leave the school, and go as a class to visit a place or see something interesting. Hopefully, they’re educational and enjoyable.

I love going on school trips and I’ve enjoyed all the ones I’ve been on! I suppose my favourite was when we went to a planetarium and watched a fantastic film about the stars and the birth of the universe. It was incredible!

If I had the choice, I think I’d prefer to visit a castle. I loy really old buildings and imagining how people lived in them hundreds of years ago.

Do you go on enough school trips at your school?

Yes, we have quite a lot at my school — at least one ever term. I think that’s enough. If we had more, we wouldn have enough time to learn things in the classroom.

What would your perfect school trip be?

We’d leave school early in the morning, and go by bus or coach to a castle. We’d spend the morning walking round the castle. Then we’d have a picnic lunch by a

River. In the afternoon, we’d go to a planetarium like the one 1 mentioned earlier. We’d get back to school early in the evening.

Hi, Nick/Nicole.

Hello!

Tm glad I ran into you. I was wondering if you have an old set of elbow pads I could borrow for ice hockey practice this afternoon.

Of course. Have you lost yours?

Well, actually I don’t have any. I’ve just started playing and already I’ve found that I really need them.

Did you hurt yourself?

I did. I fell down a few times and my elbows are a mess now. I’ve got bandages on them! I can still play, but I really need pads.

Do you want me to go with you to buy some elbow pads sometime?

That would be great. I’m not sure where to go, though. Do you know of a good sports equipment shop?

There’s a good shop near the school. Would you like to go after practice?

I’m afraid I can’t. I have to study for an English test.

Do you have any plans for this weekend?

No, I don’t have any plans yet.

Shall we go on Saturday, then?

Yes, we could do that.

OK. I’ll come to your room at about ten thirty. Is that OK?

That sounds great. Well, here are my extra elbow pads.

Thanks a lot!

See you later.
