Q11-14

M: May I help you?
F: Yes. I want to buy some shoes to replace the ones I’m wearing.
M: What’s wrong with them?
F: They are too old and shabby.
M: I can see they have simply been worn out. Would you like the same color, more or less?
F: Yes, and something a little less casual.
M: How about this light brown pair? They are similar to what you have, but a little bit dress here.
F: Yes. I was thinking of something along that line. I’ll try them on.
M: They certainly look charming.
F: The trouble is: they feel uncomfortable.
M: Then try on this other pair in a similar style, but by a different manufacturer.
F: These are much better. Do you have them in red?
M: Yes. Would you like both pairs?
F: Yes, if they won’t cost too much.
M: Oh, no, they won’t. The second pair is half price. Shall I put them both in the box for you?
F: Just the red and the old ones. I wear the new brown pair home.

Q15-18

I lived in Madrid for a whole year. And I have to be honest and say that at first I wasn’t very happy. You see, I was homesick. I missed my family and I just wanted to go home. Part of the problem was my Spanish. I couldn’t communicate very well. But I love to eat and that’s what really saved me. You see, once I discovered tapas. Oh, let me explain these delicious appetizers you eat. So I made some Spanish friends and we would go out to tapas bars. So I got to eat a lot of delicious food and of course, my Spanish improved dramatically as well. But there was one thing that was difficult to adjust to. And that was that dinner was always served at a late hour. I wasn’t used to eating at 11 at night!

M :Miss Drewell, can you tell us something about further and continuous education in Britain?
F: Further and continuous education in Britain can be of different kinds. Apart from the world-famous open university; there are other colleges that can provide programs of further education for adult students.
M:We are all quite familiar with the Open University, what about the other colleges? 
F:Well, first there are the polytechnics. The polytechnics are colleges or institutions of further education. There are study centers that offer many different courses for students of all ages. These courses lead to diplomas or to degrees awarded by the council for national academic awards which was set up to award degrees to adult students in non-university institutions.
M:And then what about the non-degree courses for adult students?
F:Second, there are specialist colleges such as the agriculture colleges, colleges of art or music and so on. There are also a large number of local colleges of further education: technical colleges and colleges of commerce. All these special colleges provide a variety of non-degree courses for adult students.
 M:What about the courses? Are the specially designed for adult students?
 F:Courses for adult students may also be vocational or recreational, that it they may be related to a person’s job or taken purely for interest and pleasure? Examples of popular recreational classes are poetry, woodwork, car maintenance, cookery and so on. At the same time, university lecturers may give up some of their free time every week to talk to town and village clubs about anything from archeology to the sociological effects of the industrial revolution.
