剑桥雅思11 test2 Section1雅思听力原文
CAROLINE: Good Morning. Youth Council. Caroline speaking.
ROGER: Oh, hello, I’m interested in standing for election to the Youth Council, and I was told to give you a call.
CAROLINE: That’s good. Could I have your name, please?
ROGER: Yes, it’s Roger (Example) Brown.
CAROLINE: Thank you. I’m Caroline, the Youth Council administrator. So do you know much about what the Council does, Roger?
ROGER: I’ve talked to Stephanie – I think she’s the chair of the Council.
CAROLINE: That’s right.
ROGER: And she told me a lot about it. How it’s a way for young people to discuss local issues, for example, and make suggestions to the town council. That’s what made me interested.
CAROLINE: Fine. Well, let me take down some of your details. First of all, how old are you? You know the Council is for young people aged from 13 to 18?
ROGER: I’ve just turned 18.
CAROLINE: And where do you live, Roger?
ROGER: Well, that’s a bit complicated. At the moment I’m looking for a flat to rent here, so I’m in a hostel (Q1) from Monday to Friday. I go back to my parents’ place at the weekend.
CAROLINE: OK, SO where’s the best place to send you some information about the Council?
ROGER: Oh, to my parents’ address, please. That’s 17, Buckleigh (Q2) Street – B-U-C-K-L-E-I- G-H Street, Stamford, Lincolnshire, though you don’t really need the county.
CAROLINE: Oh, I know Stamford – it’s a lovely town. And what’s the postcode?
ROGER: PE9 7QT (Q3)
CAROLINE: Right, thank you. So are you working here, or are you a student?
ROGER: I started studying at the university a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve got a part-time job for a few hours a week.
CAROLINE: What do you do?
ROGER: Well, I’ve done several different things. I’ve just finished a short-term contract as a courier, and now I’m working as a waiter (Q4) in one of the big hotels.
CAROLINE: Uhuh. That can’t leave you much time for studying!
ROGER: Oh, it’s not too bad. I manage to fit it all in.
CAROLINE: What are you studying?
ROGER: My ambition is to go into parliament eventually, so my major subject is politics (Q5). That’s partly why I think the Youth Council is important and want to be a part of it.
CAROLINE: And I suppose you’re also taking a minor subject, aren’t you? I know a lot of people study economics too.
ROGER: I chose history. To be honest, I’m not finding it as interesting as I expected!
CAROLINE: OK, so with your studying and your part-time job, do you have time for any other interests or hobbies?
ROGER: Well, I spend quite a lot of time cycling (Q6) – both around town to get to university and to work, and also long-distance, from here to London, for instance.
CAROLINE: That’s pretty impressive! Anything else?
ROGER: For relaxation, I’m also keen on the cinema (Q7) – I used to go at least once a week, but I can’t manage to go so often now.
CAROLINE: Right. Are you sure you’ll have enough time for the Youth Council?
ROGER: Yes, I’ve worked out that I can afford to reduce my hours at work, and that will make the time.
CAROLINE: So is there any particular aspect of the Youth Council’s work that appeals to you, Roger?
ROGER: Well, my sister is blind, so I’m particularly interested in working with disabled (Q8) young people, to try and improve the quality of their lives.
CAROLINE: That’s great. Well, the best way to get involved is to be nominated by some people who you know.
ROGER: Right. Can you tell me how to set about organising that?
CAROLINE: You should talk to Jeffrey, our Elections Officer. I can arrange a meeting in the council office with him, if you like.
ROGER: Yes, please.
CAROLINE: He’ll be here next Monday, if that suits you.
ROGER: That’s the 14th, isn’t it?
ROGER: I can manage late afternoon.
CAROLINE: Would you like to suggest a time? He generally leaves around 5:30.
ROGER: Well, would 4:30 (Q9) be OK? My last class finishes at 4, so I’d have plenty of time to get to your office.
CAROLINE: Right, that’s fine. Oh, and could I have a phone number we can contact you on?
ROGER: Yes, my mobile number’s 07788 136711 (Q10).
CAROLINE: Thank you. Well, we’ll look forward to seeing you next week.
ROGER: Thanks very much. Goodbye.
