Part 1

Receptionist: English Language Center. How may I help you?

Caller: Yes. I'm calling to find out more information about your program. For example, what kind of courses do you offer?

Receptionist: Well, first of all, the purpose of our program is to provide language learning opportunities to this area's community [Uh-hum], whether a student's goal is to master basic functional language skills, let's say, for his or her job, or to study intensively to enter a US college or university.

Caller: Okay. I'm calling for a friend who is interested in attending a US university.

Receptionist: And that's the kind of, uh, instruction that we provide, from basic communication courses to content-based classes such as computer literacy, intercultural communication, and business English.

Caller: Great. What are your application deadlines for the next semester?

Receptionist: Well, we ask applicants to apply no later than two months before the semester begins. [Uh-hum] This gives us time to process the application and issue the student's I-20.

Caller: An I-20?

Receptionist: Oh, an I-20 is a form that indicates that we are giving permission for the student to study in our program, and then the student takes this form to the US embassy in his or her country to apply for the F-1 student visa.

Caller: Alright. What is the tuition for a full-time student?

Receptionist: It's two thousand thirty dollars.

Caller: And how does one apply?

Receptionist: Well, we can send you an application and you can mail it back to us, or you can fill out our application that's online at our Web site.

Caller: And are there other materials I would need to send in addition to the application form?

Receptionist: Uh, yes. You would need to send in a $35 non-refundable application fee [Uh-huh], a sponsorship form indicating who will be responsible financially for the student while studying in our program, and a bank statement showing that you or your sponsor has sufficient funds to cover tuition expenses and living costs for the entire year of study.

Caller: And how can I send these materials to you?

Receptionist: You can either send the application packet by regular mail or you can fax it.

Caller: And the application fee?

Receptionist: We accept money orders, travelers checks, or credit cards.

Caller: Alright. I think that's about it.

Receptionist: Okay great.

Caller: Oh and what is your name?

Receptionist: Ok. My name is Tony Nelson. You can just call and ask for me.

Caller: Great. Thank you for help.

Receptionist: No problem and please don't hesitate to call again if you have any other questions.

Caller: Okay. Goodbye.

 

Part 2

Man:      

Oh, excuse me, I wonder if you’d have the time to take part in some market research?

Woman:  

Umm ... What’s it about?

Man:      About this club and your experiences and opinions about being a member. It’ll take less than five minutes.

Woman:      Oh ... OK then ... as long as it’s quick.

Can I start by taking your name?

It’s Selina Thompson.

Woman:      Is that T-H-O-M-P-S-O-N?

Yes.

Great, thanks ... And what do you do for a living?

Woman:      Well, I’m an accountant but I’m between jobs at the moment.

I understand, but that’s the job I’ll put down on the form. And would you mind my asking which age group you fall into? Below thirty, thirty-one to fifty and above.

Over fifty ... I think we can safely say.

Great, thanks. And which type of membership do you have?

Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean? Do you mean how long ... ?

No, is it a single person membership ... ?

Oh right ... no, it’s a family membership.

Thanks and how long have you been a member?

Oh ... let me see ... I was certainly here five years ago ... and it was probably two to three years more than that ...

Shall I put down eight?

I remember now ... it’s nine ... definitely ... sorry.

No problem ... I’ve got that. And the last question in this first part is, what brought you to the club?

Sorry ... ?

How did you find out about the club? Did you see any ads?

Woman:      Well, I did actually but I have to say I wasn’t really attracted to the club because of that. It was through word of mouth.

Man:            So you were recommended by a friend?

Woman:      Actually my doctor ... I’d been suffering from high blood pressure and he said the club was very supportive of people with that condition, so I signed up.

Man:            Great ... thanks. Now for the second part of the form I want to ask a bit more about your experience of the club.

Woman:      Sure.

Man:            How often would you say you use the club ... ?

Woman:      It varies enormously depending on how busy I am.

Of course ... but on average ... per month?

Woman:      I’d say it averages out at twice a week.

OK, so eight on average.

Woman:      Yeah. And four of those are aqua-aerobics classes.

That leads me to the next question ... would you say the swimming pool is the facility you make most use of?

Fair to say that ... yeah.

Right, thanks ... And are there any facilities you don’t use?

Woman:      One area I realise I’ve never used is the tennis courts ... and there’s one simple reason for that ... You don’t play tennis?

Woman:      Actually, I’m not bad at it ... it’s that I’m not happy having to pay extra ... for that privilege.

I’ve made a note of that ... thanks. Now in the last section are there any suggestions or recommendations you have for improvements to the club?

Only about health and fitness?

Anything at all ...

Well, I’d like to see more social events ... it isn’t just a question of getting together for games or classes but other things, you know.

Yes, sure.

And another thing that I was thinking when I had my yoga class in the gym last night - we were all sweltering in the heat - was that I think they should put in ... you know ... air conditioning.

That’s exactly what I mean. The rooms are really light and well designed but they do need proper installations. 

Sure ... well I’ve made a note of that ...

Good.

... so is there anything else you’d like to suggest ... about quality of service, for example?

Oh, everyone’s very nice here ... they couldn’t be more friendly and helpful ... oh but I tell you what ... it’s a shame the restaurant isn’t open in the evening on Saturday ... and Sunday as well for that matter.

So ... the club should ...

... open it later on those days.

OK . well thank you very much, that’s all the questions.

To know answer keys, please see it on the video clip.
