(2 pts) TOTAL: 200 points LISTENING TRANSCRIPT Part 1: You will hear an English woman called Britta talking to an interviewer about her life in Berlin, the capital of Germany. Man: Britta, you’re English, but you live in Berlin. Have you lived here for a long time? Woman: Well, I was born in England, but I’ve lived in Germany for the past twenty years. I arrived in Berlin about four years ago. Before that, I lived in Bonn for six years, but I work as a journalist, and when the newspaper moved to Berlin, I moved with them. Man: Were you pleased to come to Berlin? Woman: Yes, I was. I was looking forward to being in a big city like Berlin. Bonn was quite a lot smaller, so I love the busy atmosphere and all the cultural entertainments here: museums, theatres and so on. The only thing I don’t like is the traffic; it’s a bit noisy in the mornings. It wakes me up about 6.30, but most days I have to get up early anyway! Man: Where do you live in Berlin? Woman: I have a flat in the old part of the city. It’s right in the centre, and it’s not too expensive – it costs me about 500 pounds a month. My street is becoming very popular: there are lots of new art galleries, and small cafes and friendly restaurants everywhere. Eating out in Berlin is fun, and it’s cheap, so it’s something I do quite often. Man: How do you find transport in Berlin? Woman: Well, the transport system here is very good, so I have a tram and bus ticket, but in fact, most of the time I cycle. Travel here is much cheaper than in other countries I know – perhaps that’s why people don’t walk very much! Man: What do you like to do in Berlin at the weekends? Woman: Well, I like art, so sometimes I go to one of the galleries. I have a nephew called Philippe. He’s only three but he likes coming with me. He likes the café best, I think. And it’s a change from going to the park – that’s something he does very often. He usually comes out with me while his parents go shopping. Man: Do you miss your friends and family in England? Woman: I don’t really miss England – most of my friends are here. I don’t see much of my work colleagues socially, but I’ve got some very good friends who live in the same street as me. I enjoy meeting people, and I find Berlin is a very friendly city. Man: Thank you for talking to us, Britta. Part 2: Listen to a talk and decide if these statements are True (T) or False (F). Write your answers in the corresponding numbered boxes. In the late 2000s, the US suffered from a terrible housing crisis. Before the crisis, banks were giving millions of dollars in loans to people who wanted to purchase a home. Due to problems in the economy, many people lost their jobs and, soon after, they lost their homes as well. One question was raised after the crisis hit – should the banks have given these people loans in the first place? When most people buy a house, they don’t just hand over a lot of money for the house, unless they’re Donald Trump. They need to get a loan from the bank. This specific type of loan is called a mortgage. To get the loan from the bank, a number of things must be true. First, they need a good job and they need to give details about how much money they earn. Next, they need to pay a certain amount of money for the house as advance payment. This money is called a deposit. Sometimes it’s 10% of the value of the home, sometimes it’s less. A third item they may need to produce is a credit report, showing their past history of making payments on things like credit cards or other loans. If all that’s in place, then the bank may process the loan. Before the crisis, a number of problems existed. One was that the banks were giving out loans with little or no deposit. So, when a couple took out a mortgage, they owed nearly all the money on a home. Secondly, banks were giving out loans to people who really didn’t qualify. Either they didn’t earn enough money, or their credit report wasn’t very good. Lastly, homes were very expensive. It wasn’t uncommon to pay nearly half a million dollars for homes in some places. That’s a lot of money. So, when the crisis hit and people lost their jobs, they had these huge mortgages that they couldn’t afford. Is it right that they had these mortgages in the first place? It’s an interesting debate, but sadly, the loss of people’s homes ruined entire neighbourhoods and a lack of responsibility – whether it was on the part of the banks or homeowners – is to blame. Part 3: You will hear a woman talking to a man about joining a drama club. Complete the note below with NO MORE THAN TWO WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER for each answer. Man: Hello, Robert Gladwell speaking Woman: oh, hi. My name’s Chloe Martin. I was given your name and phone number by Ben Winters. I work with him and he said you’re a member of Midbury drama club. Man: Yes, I am. Woman: Well, I have just moved to the area and I’m keen to join a drama club. Man: Great! Yes. I can give you some information. We’re one of the oldest drama clubs in the area as the club started in 1957. we now have about 60 members. Our youngest member is ten and oldest member is 78. Woman: I think I saw a picture in the newspaper the other day of some of your members being presented with a prize. Man: Yes, the youth section did very well in a competition and won £100 which will help with their next production. Anyway, tell me a bit more about yourself. Woman: Well, I've done a bit of acting. I was in a couple of musicals when I was at the university and a historical play more recently. Man: Mm, we mainly do comedy plays. We got good audience for that kind of thing. We haven’t attempted a musical yet, but we might do one so. Woman: oh. When do usually meet? Man: On Tuesday. Woman: Presumably, I’ll need to do an audition? Man: Yes, there are a few auditions last Tuesdays and we’ll doing more at our next meeting which is in two weeks’ time, that’s on Tuesday the 12th of March. Woman: oh, well, I can come to your next meeting. And if i don’t get an acting part in a play, I’d be happy to help with something else. I’ve designed publicity before. Man: Greatly, we are very short of people who can do that, so that would be really good. There are a lot of people like making scenery so we get plenty of help with that, but we haven’t got enough people to do the lights at the moment so if you think you can do that or you have any friends who would like to, bring them along. We can show you what to do if you haven’t got any experience. Woman: I’ll have to think about it. So do you meet in the theatre Man: We do our performances in the Manor theatre but we only hire that for the night of the actual performances. We meet to rehearse every Tuesday evening in the community hall. We rent a room there. Woman: Oh, I’m not sure where that is. I’ll be coming by car because I don’t live in the town centre. Man: It is in Ashburton Road. As you are coming towards the center down Regent street, you need to turn left at the crossroads Woman: Oh, I know, there is a big car park down there, just before you get to a hotel. It is on the other side of the road from the sports center Man: That’s it. That’s the closest place to leave your car and you don’ have to pay in the evening to park there. We meet at 7.30 and usually finish by 9.30 or 10 Woman: OK! Man: I haven’t mentioned that we have to make a charge. Everyone pays a subscription of £ 180 to be a member for a year. You can pay for the whole year at once or you can pay £15 every month – works out the same. There are reductions for retired people and under 18s but I do not think you come into either category? Woman: No, I'm 26. Man: Oh, that fee covers all the cost like photocopying of scripts and producing the posters but it excludes the costumes for the performances. We ask people to pay for the hire of those themselves. It does mean they look after them properly as they know they won’t get their deposit back otherwise. Woman: Can I come to the next meeting then? Man: Of course. We‘d love to see you. And if you want to know more about how we runs the auditions or the next plays we’re doing, why don’t you give our secretary a ring? She will be really pleased to help you. Woman: What’s her name? Man: It’s Sarah Sawdicott. That’s S-A-W-D-I-C-O-double T Woman: Got that. And her phone number? Man: I’ve only got a mobile number for her. Um, just a minute.let me find it. Ah, it’s 07955 240063 Woman: Great! Thanks for your help.
