Part 1

(0:03) Did you hear that?

(0:05) No, what did you hear?

(0:07) I think there’s someone at the door.

(0:10) What makes you say that?

(0:12) I heard the doorbell ring, then I heard a knock on the door, and then I think I heard a tap on the window.

(0:19) We’re on the twelfth floor.

(0:22) OK, so maybe I didn’t hear the third one, but the other two were real.

(0:28) OK, let’s have a look. 

Part 2

(1:03) Did you have the time to wash my shirt?

(1:06) If it was in the washing, then yes. 

(1:09) And did you iron my trousers? 

(1:12) I ironed all the clothes I could find, so I’d say yes.

(1:15) There was a button missing on my jacket. (1:18) Did you have time to stitch it on for me? 

(1:20) I’m sorry, I didn’t have time for any needlework. (1:23) That’ll have to be next week.

Part 3

 (1:54) Tell me again how you made this stew.

(1:56) I cleaned and prepared all the ingredients. (2:01) Then I followed the recipe and cooked the stew for a couple of hours. 

(2:07) Once you finished the meal, did you have to do anything else?

(2:11) No, that’s not my section. (2:13) Bob clears the table and does the washing up.

Part 4

(2:44) I hear you had fun yesterday. 

(2:47) Yes, I helped my cousin milk the cows. 

(2:50) That’s unusual.

(2:52) Then we went horse riding. 

(2:53) But what about the zoo? (2:55) You wanted to see the zebras.

(2:58) No time for that. (2:59) Maybe next week.

Part 5

(3:24) Where do you live? 

(3:26) On the first floor of this building. 

(3:28) So, do you use the stairs?

(3:30) Sometimes, but I use the lift when I have a lot of bags. 

(3:35) Or a ladder? 

(3:36) No, I don’t use a ladder.

(3:39) You’re a bit strange sometimes.

Part 6
(4:06) What did you wear for carnival?  

(4:08) I went as a knight.

(4:10) Ah, so you had a sword.

(4:12) Yes, a really big one.

 (4:14) And a shield. 

(4:16) You can’t have a sword without a shield.

(4:18) You’re right.

(4:20) And a gun?  

(4:21) No, no gun.

(4:23) They didn’t have guns in those days.

Part 7

(4:53) I fancy going out for breakfast. 

(4:56) OK, what will you have? 

(4:58) I think I need some hot chocolate.

(5:01) That’s a good idea. 

(5:02) What else? 

(5:03) A couple of doughnuts could do the trick.

(5:06) OK, and some ice cream? 

(5:08) No, not for breakfast. (5:10) That’s for the evening.

(5:12) I suppose so.

Part 1

 (0:04) What’s your favourite meal? (0:06) Is it paella or fried chicken?

(0:09) I must admit I like both of them very much, but they’re not my favourite. (0:13) When I’m hungry, I like nothing better than a good hamburger with a big ration of chips. (0:19) I know it isn’t good for you, but man, it tastes good.

Part 2

(0:48) What are your parents doing for their anniversary?

(0:51) They were thinking of going to the cinema. (0:53) There’s a great new film out.

(0:55) When are they going to see it?

(0:57) It was advertised on Wednesday, but then they changed it to Thursday. (1:01) They’re going on Friday.

(1:03) That’s a good day for it. 

Part 3

(1:28) I worked in a zoo this summer.

(1:32) Wow, what did you have to do?

(1:34) I love animals, so I got to work with the rhinos and I looked after this baby elephant. (1:40) I didn’t get to work with the baboons, which are my favourites. (1:44) Maybe next year.

Part 4

(2:09) What are you up to?

(2:10) My weekly chores. (2:12) I’m doing the washing. (2:13) Do you have anything you want cleaned?

(2:16) I think you already have my shorts and my jeans, so that’s everything. (2:21) No, wait. (2:22) I’ll give you these socks.

(2:23) They need a wash. (2:25) Thanks.

(2:53) But what about the zoo? (2:55) You wanted to see the zebras.

(2:58) No time for that. (2:59) Maybe next week.

Part 5

(2:50) I didn’t see the end of that film last night. (2:53) What happened?

(2:54) It was great, wasn’t it?

(2:57) I don’t know. (2:58) I didn’t see how it ended.

(3:00) This guy was chasing some drug dealers and he jumped out of a helicopter, stole a motorbike and then his boat exploded, but he was OK. (3:09) And he got the drug dealers. (3:10) It was very exciting.

Part 6

(3:41) That’s my teacher over there, waiting for the bus.

(3:44) You mean the lady with brown hair, wearing a hat? (3:48) She looks really nice.

(3:49) No, my teacher is also really nice and very friendly, but she has blonde hair, not brown hair, and she wears glasses.

(3:57) Oh yes, I see her now. (3:59) Yes, she does look friendly. 

Part 7

(4:29) I need to buy my friend a gift, but I have a problem.

(4:34) What’s the problem?

(4:35) I can’t remember when it’s his birthday. (4:38) I think he said the 12th or the 14th, but I’m not sure. (4:43) I don’t want to miss his party, but I can’t call him to ask.

(4:47) His birthday is on the 16th and his mother called to invite you last week. (4:53) Make sure you get him a nice gift.
