1. Itís only a few miles away. Do you want to go by tube, by bus or take a walk?
2. Thatís more expensive than the bus. You canít see a thing. Itís cold and draughty down there and Iím afraid of escalators. Iíd rather go by bus. Itís nice, especially a double Decker.
3. Of course we can. We can go to Harrods or Selfridgeís or maybe we can go to Libertyís. These are all beautiful department stores.
4. very funny! There were only a few shops in Shelleyís time. What about a museum? There are a lot of choices like: the British museum, the science museum. Youíre a technician right? Or what about the V&A?
5. What about Kew Gardens? Do you want to look at rare plants? Do you want to go to London to look at rare plants? Isnít there a pub or restaurant around? You can have the plants and I can have a lovely Ploughmanís lunch. Sounds reasonable right?
6. Maybe an hour but I happen to be a townsperson. And what do you want to do tonight? We can go to a movie, the theatre or maybe the disco.
7. That isnít a problem. But tomorrow we are going to Greenwich. It isnít that far away from London. Itís very interesting, they say. There are a lot of things to see. Is it a deal? By the way we are going by boat.
1. Hello. Are you lost right? Or am I mistaken?
2. No, youíre right. Weíre cycling around for an hour now. Itís easy to get lost in here.
3. Can I help?
4. I would love that. At first, can you tell me where we are? I have no idea. There are no signs, thereís nothing actually. Itís a beautiful landscape but it must be said that itís lonely.
5. Youíre right. Yes, this is Wales. I know where we are. Itís about a mile from Llanddona.
6. I didnít see a sign of that. Weíve been cycling all over the place. What did you call that place? I canít pronounce the name.
7. Yes, names are very difficult here, even for me. I will spell the name for you. Llanddona. L l a n d d o n a. Why donít you give it a shot?
8. L l a n d d o n a Llanddona
9. You did an excellent job. So tell me, where are you coming from and where do you want to go to?
10. Weíre from the Netherlands. We want to go to Holyhead on the Irish sea. Apparently it is beautiful there.
11. To Holyhead, right? I have to take a look at the map. Well, itís considerable far.
12. Thatís alright. We are good cyclers. Can you tell us how to get there? We prefer back roads. It is dangerous at the main roads.
13. First you have to follow this road.
14. Iíd better write the number down.
15. Of course. This is the B5109
16. the B5109. And which road then?
17. Well then you have to turn right and take as many B-roads as possible.
18. Can you look at the map again and repeat youíre directions?
19. Yes, It isnít that easy. You just have to follow this road, turn right and then follow the B-roads to Holyhead
20. So I have to follow this road, turn right and then follow the B-roads to Holyhead.
21. Very good. You will get there.
22. Thank you!
1. Why is that? I havenít done anything. I came home at all hours but all of my friends did too. That isnít a problem, is it? I am old and wise enough.
2. What do you mean? These same old storyís again. When I was your ageÖI didnít have any money and I had to fend for myself. Iíve heard them a thousand times. Have you never been young yourself?
3. Thatís what you keep saying me. Youíre getting worked up about nothing. I donít get drunk, and I donít use drugs. I donít have bad friends. I work quite hard at my paper round. Youíre a good dad, only a bit old-fashioned. You should talk to mum sometime. She understands me better.
4. Of course. Youíre the best father in the world. I was late indeed. I missed the last bus home. I walked home with five others. It wasnít dangerous at all, we had a lot of fun. I wanted to call you first to pick us up. Would you have liked that?
5. Thanks dad, thatís a nice offerÖ But I am tired. I am going to sleep late tomorrow. Oh dad? I am a bit short of cash. Shall I wash your car? You canít get it any cheaper elsewhere.
1. I can get along with them very well.
2. My parents arenít strict at all.
3. I can do whatever I want as long as I tell them what I am going to do or where I am.
4. I think the same. I think theyíre doing a great job.
5. They found my friends nice. They donít make a problem of my friends coming over for example.
6. This apply both of them. They donít say soon: I donít like that person if that person is my friend.
7. If they say that Iím lazy. And if they blame me for a fight with my brother or sister. While they did something wrong also.
8. I get angry or sulky.
9. What do you mean. Can you explain that question to me?
10. what do you think your parents want from you?
11. I donít really know that. I think they want me to be honest with them.
1. WhatísÖ? WhatísÖ? You give meÖ.
2. I know what you mean. I am tired too. I am really hungry. Is there a cafť around here? Can you recommend me one?
3. So you told me. They often serve bad food. Itís dirty as well, dirty tables end cutlery. Itís shocking! I am really hungry. I have to eat. Letís go to a pub?
4. That sounds familiar. Oh yes, I remember: itís the oldest pub in Kent. Itís a steep climb but itís worth it. We will just have to grin and bear it. Itís 3 miles at the most.
5. It doesnít matter. We can rest there and thereís food and drink. We arenít going to give up, are we? (never)
6. Itís fantastic here. This place is very old and has a wonderful atmosphere! Thereís even a fireplace! And those old oak beams, just wonderful.
7. Youíre too tall. Your whole family is tall. Do you know that people were smaller seven hundred years ago. So shall I ask for the menu?
8. Do you want steak and mushrooms? Itís quite cheap here. What about chicken curry? Perhaps with some plaice and chips. But I donít want baked beans!
9. So does that mean that I have to try them? I hate them. Do you know what? What do you think of chicken pie, chips and plenty of gravy. Thatís typically British too.
10. I also want a low-calorie beer. Do you want one too?
1. Isnít expensive? I donít want to spend too much money. After all, England is not cheap!
2. Iím not too fond of chicken. Are those free-range chickens? At least theyíre better then those battery hens. I wonít eat them as a matter of principle.
3. Perhaps a steak. I would like one with pepper sauce. Do they have that here?
4. Way too expensive. Iím not prepared to spend more money than about six pounds. Do you what Iíd like? Iíd like some bread with cheese. Edam or Gouda cheese. Thatís delicious, you know. Do they have that?
5. Iím not sure. I love Dutch cheese. Iím not too fond of French cheese. I didnít even know that English cheese existed. Wait a minute, do they have scampi? I love scampi. I donít think thatís very expensive in England, is it?
6. That seems to be a good choice then. Iíd like some chips or a big jacket potato on the side. Perhaps Iíd also like some beaked beans. Or is that a bad combination?
7. Mushrooms. I love those. Theyíre delicious. Iíd like a double helping. How much are they?
8. MM, perhaps Iíd better make it just one helping. Shall we order two diet cokes as well?
1. Did you watch TV last night? It was dead boring! Nothing but twaddle. Nothing but environment. They canít talk about anything else. Never believe those politicians. They all drive in huge cars themselves.
2. Iím sick to death of all that hot air. Walk through the words on Sunday morning. No one to be seen. And cars are getting cleaner and cleaner all the time. And yet thereís always all these new taxes. We should all take the train or the bus. Just try that in the rush-hour. And always more environment taxes. Ecotax is what they call them. Itís nothing more than a tax hike. Pollution comes from abroad. The Meuse in France and Belgium. The former communist countries of eastern Europe. And we have to be more catholic than the pope.
3. Come of it! Think of the floods in 1953. Two thousand people were drowned. Theyíd never heard of the environment. There have always been disasters and there always will be. People are so naÔve. Theyíll believe anything. Of course thereís (environmental) pollution, but itís not as bad as all that. Anyway people want prosperity, a job and a car as well . But you canít have everything.
4. Youíve got a point there. Maybe itís a bit over-simplified. All the same. I hate these double standards. They say one thing and then go and do the opposite. Public transport for us, but great big cars for them. Talk about public transport. Itís forty miles from N to E and it takes the train two hours or more. But Iím getting all wound up again. Youíre right about that.
1. What are your plans this morning? How about going to Petticoat Lane? Thereís a market. It could be interesting. There are probably many tourists. We could try to pick up a few bargains. I read a lot about the London markets.
2. Thatís a shame. Iíve totally forgotten. What about Portobello Road then? There they have antiques, bric-a-brac, second-hand clothes, old coins. Iím well informed am I? Itís open today, isnít it? Or am I wrong again?
3. Iíd rather not. Itís too expensive. Markets are way nicer. There is more atmosphere. So what do you think of Camden Passage Market? I like the pavement cafťs and small restaurants. They also have all kinds of bargains. For example clothes like, leather jackets and bags. All of excellent quality, all of famous brands. And watches: old and new ones. When is it open?
4. How far is it by tube? Is it nearby?
5. Itís harder than I expected. There are more than a hundred markets in London, arenít there? I read about Brixton too. Theyíve got a fantastic collection of foodstuffs. Food from Africa and the Caribbean. Theyíve got delicious fish, very exotic. And they are open all days of the week. Iím sure of that! We should really give it a try. They have a mixture of cultures.
6. Youíre right. I havenít thought about that. Iíve got another idea. Donít turn it down immediately (at once). What about Covent Garden? It used to be a vegetables market. Sounds great. There are some nice pavement cafťs. Itís just across from the London Transport Museum. There are a lot of small shops. I think itís an interesting part of London. Itís partially covered. So what do you think?
1. Excuse me? Can you help me? Iím looking for Down Street.
2. Youíre looking for Downing Street number 10? Thatís not far from here. Itís just down this road and then turn right. Youíll see lots of police.
3. Iím sorry but I didnít ask for Downing Street. I meant Down Street. The tube station.
4. Did you mean Down Street? Never heard of that and I am a born Londoner. But I donít know a tube station called Down Street. Are you sure of that? Arenít you looking for Dowrey street or Downham Road? Can I have a look at your map? Can you point out where it is?
5. Right here. Itís near Dover Street.
6. Arenít you pulling my leg? I mean Dover Street! Itís there all right. But I never heard of it. As I said, Iím a born Londoner. I know London like the back of my hand. Iíve been a cab driver all my life. So itís simply impossible that I didnít know that!
7. Itís here isnít it? And Down Street Station is there as well. I donít understand it. I want to go to Harrodís
8. Let me see. Itís a real mystery to me! And we have to try to solve it. This is a strange map! Very strange indeed.
9. I bought at in a second-hand bookshop at Charing Cross Road. They have lots of old maps. Itís very interesting.
10. Iím beginning to understand it now. Itís a map with ghost stations!
11. What do you mean? Ghost stations? Can you explain that?
12. There are almost 40 ghost stations in London. They are no longer in use, but they still exist. At least most of them. Like City Road, York Road, British Museum, Wood Lane and Down Street, right here.
13. They are no longer in use? Why is that?
14. Because now there are more modern stations, and more travellers. The old stations werenít profitable enough.
15. Thatís very interesting. Is it possible to see them?
16. I donít know. There arenít ant regular tours. Iím sure of that. But there is an interesting book by J. Connors. Itís called: ĎAbandoned stations on Londonís Underground. Itís a good buy!
17. I will remember that. But how do I get to Harrodís?
18. Thatís very easy, just go to Green Park Station. Get on the tube there. You can have a nice walk. Itís definitely cheaper.
19. Iíll think about that. You were a great help. Thanks very much.
1. Shall we go out tonight? What do you think of the theatre?
2. What about the theatre? Which one do you want to visit? I donít really feel much like it.
3. Why not? There are over 60 theatres in London. There is a wide choice, isnít there?
4. So you say! It will be impossible to get tickets for popular productions. You have to book and they are really, really expensive.
5. Iíve heard you can always get tickets on the black market. At least, thatís what I heard.
6. Yes, they are way more expensive. The prices are ridiculous. Besides I really hate those money-grabbing-touts. Theyíre profiteers.
7. Ok, but what about the cinema then? There are a lot of good films on.
8. I can see films in Holland as well. I didnít came to England to go to the cinema. What about the disco?
9. I donít mind really. Which one did you have in mind? Some are open day and night. You can even have breakfast there. Like the Marquee and the Borderline.
10. Thatís a bit over the top. Ever heard of Bar Rumba on Shaftesbury Ave?
11. Bar Rumba did you say? That must be Latin-American music. Thatís not my cup of tea. We could go to Hippodrome, thatís at the corner of Charing Cross Road.
12. Iíve heard of it. It costs an arm and a leg. Thereís a magnificent light show. And itís a lot cheaper before ten oíclock.
13. Thatís no good. The action only starts to hot up toward midnight. What about the Dome at Junction Road? There are a lot of student. Itís an international public. They play Indie pop and roots reggae. So what do you think?
14. Well we should really try it. I assume you have to dress up a bit.
1. What are we going to do today? We arenít watching television all day. Thatís all rubbish. Shall we go out? Have you got any plans?
2. No, not really. What about taking the bus to Leicester Square? Or how about taking a tube to a museum?
3. I canít stand crowds, they make me nervous. I hate buses as well. Do you remember what happened yesterday?
4. That was your own fault. You took the wrong bus. You had to take the 68 bus to Kew Gardens, not number 86 to the British Museum! That wasnít very clever of you, was it?
5. Yeah, donít rub it in. I didnít have money, so I had to walk back all the way. My feet still hurts. London is a hell of a big city.
6. We can always take a cab. Why donít we go to an interesting museum like the Tate?
7. The Tate? Theyíve got all this modern stuff, right? I donít understand it. Perhaps Iím too stupid. How about something more exciting?
8. How about the London Dungeon then? You can see displays of tortures and executions there.
9. No, thank you very much. Iím a sensitive person. You know that.
10. Well, let me think. Maybe the National Portrait Gallery. Theyíve got portraits of kings, queens and other celebrities.
11. No thatís frightfully boring. I donít know these people. I donít want to either. Iím just not interested in them.
12. Can I tell you something? Youíre a pain in the neck, thatís what you are.
13. Iím sorry. I apologise. Do you know what? You tell me where we are going to. Iíll come along.
14. ok. So maybe Cutty Shark then?
15. Is that a museum? Iíve never heard of it.
16. Itís very interesting. You can see the World-famous sailing ships, like the Gipsy Moth IV (the fourth)
17. Why didnít you say that before? Iím crazy about ships.
18. Are you really? Shall we go by tube?
19. No, Iíd rather go by taxi! Iíll pay.
1. Can I speak to Alan?
2. I understand/ Iím sorry I must have dailed the wrong number. I wanted Keston 34782.
3. Iím sorry for disturbing you. It was a stupid mistake.
4. Alan is that you? This is Cindy speaking.
5. Yes, please. Is Alan in? Can I speak to him?
6. Hi, Cindy speaking. Have you forgotten our appointment to go to town? You were supposed to pick me up at home. Remember?
7. Well thatís just great! Now what? Itís half past 3. Is it still worthwhile?
8. ok, but not a minute later. And we are not only going shopping. Weíll have to eat something as well.
9. Your treat? Can I have a big milkshake and a big mac?
10. That isnít necessary. I was just kidding. Weíre going Dutch. Get a move on. I expect you here in 20 minutes. Have to go, see you later.\
1. Could you tell me where you were at that moment and how far away you were?
2. I was behind the cyclist. We were both going the same way. I also wanted to cross the junction, but I think I was about 15 yards away when the accident happened.
3. Are you sure that certain lights were red for the car? Couldnít you have make a mistake?
4. Iím absolutely sure that the light were red for the cars. Itís impossible that is was red for us. Iím sure the motorist was at fault.
5. Can you describe the accident again, I just want to make sure everything is clear.
6. Well, as I told you, the cyclist in front of me was about half away cross the junction. The car want very fast through red light and hit the cyclist. The slowed down and then continued racing.
7. Can you tell me the make and colour of the car?
8. It happened all so fast. It was not a very big car. I think the colour was grey, blue or black. Iím not so sure about the make either. It may have been a Clio or an older Astra.
9. Do you remember the number plate?
10. No, I didnít have the time to look at the number plate. I was more interested in the cyclist lying in the ground. There came blood from her nose and ears.
11. Can you tell me something about the driver? What about the sex, appearance or the age of the driver? Do you remember something about that?
12. It was a woman. She was quite young and there was a woman passenger sitting next to her. I havenít got more details. The car was gone in seconds.
13. Where there any other witnesses?
14. The cars that were standing at the red lights. Oh, and the man by the cyclist phoning the police and ambulance,
15. Could you identify the driver if she was located? Because itís a serious matter. The cyclist had a massive skull wound.
16. Iím not sure, but maybe I could identify her from a line-up. Is the cyclist going to die?
17. It doesnít look good. The motorist is facing serious charges.
18. And now? Whatís going to happen next?
19. Weíre going to the police station to make a formal statement. So far youíre our best witness.
1. Good afternoon. Can I help you?
2. That would be great. I bought this phone last week. Maybe itís just my fault but I have a lot of problems with it.
3. Iím sorry to hear that. Iím sure we can solve your problems.
4. I hope so. A lot of things just donít work, like for instance the alarm. Itís just doesnít work. Iíve already overslept three times.
5. Can I have a look? You have to select menu, then look for set alarm. Please try.
6. Thatís what Iíve done. Yes, here it is. Number 4.5 Set alarm. You see?
7. Yes but youíve done something wrong. Take a good look.
8. I see, How stupid of me! This is the weekly alarm. Thatís right, isnít it?
9. Yes, thatís right. It could happen to anybody. Mobile phones arenít easy to handle. Anything else I can do for you?
10. I also have problems with sms text messages. Yesterday I sent a long text message to my friend. When I wanted to sent it, it just disappeared.
11. A long test message, you said? How long?
12. About a hundred words, I guess
13. You canít do that because a telephone isnít a computer. There is a maximum of a hundred sixty characters. Itís all in the manual.
14. Iím sorry, I suppose I didnít read it well.
15. These things happen. There are a lot of people who have trouble with this kind of phones in the beginning.
16. Thank god, Iím not the only one. I have one last question. The volume is very low. I canít find anything in the menu. Can you turn it up a bit please?
17. Iím sure. Here on the left youíve got volume keys. Theyíre quite handy. You can also use them for the menu.
18. This is a lot easier than I thought. I didnít read the manual well enough. Iíll try everything once more at home. Thank you very much. Youíve been a great help.
Hier moeten nog 237 en 238 tussen!
1. Thatís hard to say. Iím not sure if Iím going to pass my final exams. Although, youíre quite optimistic. I would like to be a computer programmer. Thatís a real hobby of mine, but itís a heavy course. Thereís a lot of maths involved, and thatís not my best subject. But Iím motivated.
2. Isnít that boring, staring at a screen all day? Thatís not my cup of tea at all!
3. Youíre totally wrong. I would like to work with people. I would like to be a nurse. Itís a fine profession full of variety. Itís hard working, but not boring. I enjoy helping others. Itís a lot of responsibility. I can really handle it, I believe.
4. The money is lousy. You hardly have any social states/recognition. Youíve got irregular hours and itís a really ungrateful job, isnít it?
5. Indeed, itís badly paid. But money isnít everything. The patients appreciate it and thatís much more important.
6. Youíll never guess what I want to do later. I would like to be a teacher.
7. Well, itís never boring. You get the chance to work with youngsters and they are usually quite cheerful. Older people are often a bit ill-natured, they have more worries. Besides youíre independent, once youíve closed the door, nobodyís spying on you. Except for your pupils.
8. That isnít too optimistic? Think of the stress. The pupils arenít always motivated, and the parents can be very critical as well. Itís a hard job, I think.
9. Iím not. My father is in the police force and my mother is a social worker. Thatís what I would like to be. I want to help people just like Carol wants. I like working with people and helping them. And I can speak Turkish too. I know a lot of Turkish people. There are problems, sometimes. Being in another, and have to deal with another language. Iím half Turkish, half Dutch.
10. I couldnít agree with you more Iím dead keen on my computer programming. But if it was poor paid then I would do something else.
1. What can I do for you?
2. This is ( eigen naam) from the Netherlands speaking. Do you remember me?
3. Well, I canít say I do. We get so many guests here, especially August is a very busy month.
4. Iíll give a description of me and my friend: (zelf verzinnen) Do you remember us now?
5. Oh, yes you were with a friend, werenít you? Was that a couple of weeks ago?
6. Thatís right that was in the beginning of August. Is this Mrs. B. by the way?
7. Iím afraid sheís not in at the moment. Sheíll be back at 2. My name is Mrs. M., P.M.
8. Perhaps you can help me?
9. I can try. What seems to be the problem?
10. I list my mobile phone a couple of weeks ago. It may still be at your place. It was quite expensive. Iíve looked everywhere for it.
11. Well, a mobile phone you said? Actually, we found one. Can you describe it, please?
12. ( beschrijven)
13. Thatís the one. You donít mind me checking, do you? Youíre lucky. Of course, we havenít used it. W have been waiting for the owner. We had no idea it was yours.
14. Youíre making me very happy. Could you send it back to the Netherlands, please? Iíll pay for the postage, of course.
15. Thatís not necessary, itís our treat because you were both very nice guests. Are you coming back next year?
16. Certainly, we will because we had a whale of a time. Those breakfasts of yours were absolutely fantastic. Perhaps bad for the figure though.
17. You must be joking. Could you give me you address in the Netherlands? I will send it right away.
18. Youíre extremely kind!! (adres geven)
19. Dutch is a difficult language. Could you spell it please.
21. Iíll repeat that : (naam, adres)
22. Thatís right. Iím very grateful to you. Please give my kind regards to Mrs. B. Thank you very much.
1. Hello Lisa, Jack speaking. Have you received the brocure about Oak Creek Ranch School yet?
2. Yes, this morning actually. It looks fine, just as my sister had told me.
3. When was she there? 3 years ago?
4. No, 4 years, she was very pleased.
5. Can I ask you a couple of things? Is the brochure in front of you?
6. Yes, shoot..
7. What kind of school is it? Is it conservative or progressive? And where exactly is it situated.
8. Itís a traditional school, so you may call it a bit conservative. It is situated in Arizona, near Sedona
9. Do they also offer English courses for foreigners?
10. Yes, as a matter of fact they do. They offer courses during the school year and in the summer.
11. Can you tell something about the accommodation? Do you stay with private families?
12. I suppose not, itís a boarding school
13. I take it only very bright students are admitted to the school.
14. No, it doesnít matter if youíre not bright. Every student is welcome.
15. How many students are there in group in total?
16. They donít allow no more than 10 students in a class. The school had about 85 to 90 students.
17. Are there also optional courses?
18. Yes, they have , but you have obliged courses too.
19. That sounds great! Can everybody admitted?
20. No, very troublesome students will not be admitted.
21. Is it expensive? I assume it is.
22. I donít know to be honest. I think you can better ask for the brochure and see it yourself.
1. Shall we do something exciting tonight, like that disco on Groovy Lane?
2. No, thatís so boring. Itís always the same in there.
3. Well, we both need to relax right now and the disco is the ideal place.
4. I donít have any money. I canít afford to go to the disco right now.
5. We can get a discount with this flyer and I can lend you some money.
6. No, I already owe you too much.
7. But they have really good music there, like pop and R&B. The place had a great atmosphere.
8. Thatís not true. The music is usually too loud and not my taste. Besides I really donít want a sore throat tomorrow.
9. You can meet a lot of your mates there. There are a lot of handsome boys/girls.
10. Always that same old crowd. Besides you know I already have a boy-/girlfriend. No complications for me!
11. Weíll just have a few drinks and some fun. Come on with some dancing it will be great.
12. No, sure. And have a hangover tomorrow. And thereís always the possibility of fights. There are some people I want to avoid.
13. You have to give it a change. We really need to let off some steam.
14. Iím already very tired. By tomorrow Iíll be a complete wreck. I had a busy week you know.
15. Well, do you have some other suggestion?
16. How about stay in and watch television?
17. Talk about whatís boring. I donít want to sit around and watch TV. I really want to do something active.
18. Weíll do the disco another time. Itíll be fun just stay in and watch a good TV programme
