Section 1
You will hear a conversation between an assistant librarian and a woman who wants to use the internet in the library. First, you have some time to look at questions 1 to 6.
[20 seconds]
You will see that there is an example that has been done for you. On this occasion only the conversation relating to this will be played first.
WOMAN: Good morning, I’d like to register to use the internet in the library.
MAN: Do you have a library card?
WOMAN: Yes, I’ve been a member for 6 months but I’ve never used the internet services before.
The woman already has a library card, so Yes has been written in the space. Now we shall begin. You should answer the questions as you listen because you will not hear the recording a second time. Listen carefully and answer questions 1 to 6.
WOMAN: Good morning, I’d like to register to use the internet in the library.
MAN: Do you have a library card?
WOMAN: Yes, I’ve been a member for 6 months but I’ve never used the internet services before.
MAN: No problem. Can I have your full name please?
WOMAN: Lynda Jayne Milton.
MAN: So, Milton is your surname?
MAN: And Linda, L-i-n-d-a?
WOMAN: Well, no, actually it’s L-Y-N-D-A.
MAN: Lynda … Jane.
WOMAN: And, erm, Jane isn’t spelt J-a-n-e either. It’s J-A-Y-N-E.
MAN: Okay, got that …thank you. Now, where do you live, Lynda?
WOMAN: Unit 15, 35 Maximilian Way.
MAN: That’s in Whitfield, right? I have a cousin who lives in that area.
WOMAN: Yes, Whitfield.
MAN: And the postcode is double seven double five?
WOMAN: Not quite – you’ve got it round the wrong way. It’s double five double seven.
MAN: Whoops, okay, moving on now … Do you work or are you at home during the day?
WOMAN: Well, both, actually. I work as a nurse but I’m on permanent night shift.
MAN: Oh, I see. In that case, we won’t put down your home phone number because I’m sure you don’t want to be disturbed when you’re trying to sleep.
WOMAN: Thanks, I appreciate that – you can always leave a message on my mobile if you have to contact me. I have it turned off when I’m sleeping, but I regularly check my voicemail for messages.
MAN: And that number is?
WOMAN: 0412 214 418
MAN: Good. Now I’ll need to see some form of photo ID – have you got something with you?
WOMAN: Yes, just a minute, here’s my swipe card for the hospital.
MAN: Thank you. I just need to make a note of the number … AZ 1985331
WOMAN: Is that all you need?
MAN: Just one more thing – your date of birth – but I can get that from the card. One moment …
WOMAN: Look – I’m afraid you haven’t copied it down correctly. I was born on the 25th September, 1975.
MAN: What have I written? Oh yes, I see it now, I’ve got the 25th of the eighth month, but that would make it August … Thanks for spotting the mistake.
Before you hear the rest of the conversation, you have some time to look at questions 7 to 10.
[20 seconds]
Now listen and answer questions 7 to 10.
MAN: Well, that’s the application form done – now, I wonder if you’d mind taking part in a survey we’re doing?
WOMAN: That’s fine. What do you want to know?
MAN: Basically, we’re trying to find out why people access the internet. I mean,
what would you be using it for? Social networking, I suppose.
WOMAN: I don’t really think so – I haven’t got the time for something like that. But I do want to keep in touch with friends and family both here and abroad, so I’d mostly be making use of my email account.
MAN: I see. A lot of students come in here to do research – is that something that you might be doing?
WOMAN: I think the internet is a great tool for research but it’s not something that interests me at the moment.
MAN: What about checking out a new job?
WOMAN: A lot of my friends use the internet for job hunting and they say it’s the best way to look for a new position – I’m quite settled where I am, though. You can get access to the other classifieds, can’t you? Trade and exchange, that kind of thing …
MAN: Yes, and I’m told it’s a very popular way of buying and selling these days.
WOMAN: Well, I’ll definitely be using it for that.
MAN: Thanks a lot. Now, do you have any questions?
WOMAN: Is there a charge for the service?
MAN: It used to be free but we’ve decided to set a one-off payment of fifteen dollars for the initial registration.
WOMAN: Oh, that’s not bad at all. One more thing … is there a time limit for each session, like half an hour or something?
MAN: Oh, it’s better than that – one 60-minute session per day – quite generous really. But we’re very strict about it.
WOMAN: I’d rarely spend more than 45 minutes on the internet at any one time so that’ll be more than enough. Thank you.
