Unit 1: HOME LIFE
PAUL: So, Andrea, you’re going home for the holiday?
ANDREA: I am sure. I’ve booked a flight for tomorrow afternoon and I can’t wait.
PAUL: That sounds great.
ANDREA: What about you? Going home too?
PAUL: I haven’t decided yet. I’m still considering …
ANDREA: Haven’t decided yet? Oh, you are never going to get a flight out of here. All the seats have been reserved by now I’m sure. It’s the holiday season, after all.
PAUL: Well, it’s not very important to me. My family lives about 180 kilometres from here. I usually take the train or the coach.
ANDREA: You don’t sound excited about it.
PAUL: Well, we are not really a very close-knit family. I have three brothers, and they’ve spread out all over the place. We rarely get together as a family any more.
ANDREA: Well, I try to get home as soon as possible. We’re a big family – there are six of us – children – so it’s always a lot of fun.
PAUL: Six kids?
ANDREA: Yes. And we’re all really close. My brothers are married, so it makes for a very crowded home over the holiday. And there are too many people to cook for, so we end up going out to dinner a lot. That’s also fun.
PAUL: Well, at my home, my mother loves to cook, so when we get home she often cooks big meals. We have leftovers for days.
Unit 2: CULTURAL DIVERSITY
Wedding in Vietnam
TOURIST: Can you tell me something about wedding ceremonies in Vietnam?
TOURIST GUIDE: Well, wedding is very important to the Vietnamese, not only to the couple involved, but also for both families. The wedding day is usually chosen carefully by the groom’s parents.
TOURIST: What does the groom’s family usually do on the wedding day?
TOURIST GUIDE: On the wedding day, the groom’s family and relatives go to the bride’s house bringing gifts wrapped in red paper. The people who hold the trays of gifts are also carefully chosen.
TOURIST: Do you have someone in charge of the ceremony? And what does he do during the wedding ceremony?
TOURIST GUIDE: Yes, we have a Master of Ceremonies who introduces the groom, the bride, the parents, the relatives and guests of the two families. The wedding ceremony starts in front of the altar. The bride and the groom would pray, asking their ancestors’ permission to get married. The Master of Ceremonies gives the wedding couple advice on starting a new family. The groom and the bride then exchange their wedding rings.
TOURIST: Where is the wedding banquet held?
TOURIST GUIDE: Well, it depends. Often the wedding banquet is held at the groom and bride’s home or at a hotel or a restaurant and all close relatives, friends, and neighbours are invited.
TOURIST: What kind of food and drinks are served?
TOURIST GUIDE: Traditional food and beer or wine are served. During the reception, the groom, bride, and their parents stop by each table to thank their guests. The guests in return, will give envelopes containing wedding cards and money to the newly wedded couples along with their blessing.
TOURIST: Oh. That’s very interesting. Thank you.
TOURIST GUIDE: You’re welcome!
Unit 3: WAYS OF SOCIALISING
The Telephone – Potential Family Battleground
Hello, everyone. In today's talk I'm going to give you some pieces of advice on how to use the telephone in the most decent way so as to avoid unnecessary disagreements between you and members of your family.
The telephone, as you know, is a marvelous instrument, but it may cause arguments between you and your parents – arguments that could be easily avoided if you would sit down, talk it over, and agree to a few simple regulations.
The most obvious problem, of course, is what everyone considers a reasonable length of time for a call. The exact duration must be worked out with your parents, but ten minutes should be an absolute maximum. That's certainly long enough to say almost anything in five different ways, and yet it isn't so long that other members of the family will become angry. Even when your parents are out, the length of your call should be limited, because they, or someone else, may be trying to reach your home for a very important reason.
Calling hours should be agreed upon. If your parents object to your leaving the dinner table to take calls, tell your friends to avoid calling at that hour; if someone does phone, ask him to call back, or offer to call him when dinner's over.
A serious calling problem is calling very late at night, or very early in the morning. This particular mistake is made mostly by young people who consider 10 or 11 p.m., when a lot of tired adults are happily sleeping, the shank of the evening. So please tell your friends not to call after ten o'clock. The shock of waking out of a sound sleep and the fright of that instant thought – "There's an accident" - are enough to give your parents a heart attack. Weekend morning calls aren't startling, but it's the one time your parents can sleep late.
If your mother and father, out of kindness, have installed a separate phone for you, remember that you're still a member of a family. So try to stick to your family's regulations.
That's all for my talk today. Thank you for listening.
Unit 4: SCHOOL EDUCATION SYSTEM
JENNY: Look, these are questions about how you got on at school. Shall we just go through them?
GAVIN: Yes, let's.
JENNY: OK, so, did you always work very hard?
GAVIN: Well I certainly worked pretty hard at the subjects I enjoyed. Yes, I did. What about you?
JENNY: Yes, I did actually, I think I worked very hard, yeah. Now let's come to the next question.
GAVIN: Did, yeah, did you always listen carefully to your teachers?
JENNY: No I don't think I did. No, I think I was quite disruptive, actually. What about you?
GAVIN: Well I think I did listen to the teachers certainly when I got to the level where I was doing the subjects that I enjoyed.
JENNY: Yeah, OK, the next question is, did you always behave well?
GAVIN: I don't think I always behaved well. I was, a bit, er, a bit of a tearaway.
JENNY: Um. Well, I think I was pretty well-behaved on the whole, so I'd say yes, yeah.
GAVIN: Good for you! Did you pass your exams easily?
JENNY: No I can't say I did, no, I, I found them quite a struggle, actually. What about you?
GAVIN: I didn't pass them that easily, though I worked hard I found it very difficult to answer all that long questions in a short time.
JENNY: Yeah, yeah, exactly. What about this one, then? Did you always write slowly and carefully?
GAVIN: Quite slowly. Essays took a long time to write and I suppose I took a bit of care, yes.
JENNY: Yes, I agree. I was also, I was very careful and erm, yeah, yeah I was quite methodical.
GAVIN: And did you think your school days were the best days of your life?
JENNY: Um, no, no I can't say they were. What about you?
GAVIN: No, I went away to boarding school when I was quite young and I didn't like that. No, they weren't the best days of my life.
Unit 5: HIGHER EDUCATION
JOHN: Now, David, can I get this right: You've just completed a Msc course on which a large proportion of the students were international students? Is that right?
DAVID: That's it. Yes, I was in AERD – that's the department of Agricultural Extension and Rural Development.
JOHN: And how do you think the students from the other countries got along on that course?
DAVID: Pretty well.
JOHN: What advice would you give to students, particularly international students, based on your experience as a student here?
DAVID: I think the most basic thing is to make use, full use, of the tutors and lecturers. Maybe some of the overseas students are a bit too shy to take questions or problems to tutors.
JOHN: What do you think they should do?
DAVID: I think they should find out at the beginning of the course the times at which the tutor is going to be available for tutorial appointments, and then make full use of them.
JOHN: So, any problems, they should tell the tutor as soon as possible? Let's move on, what about the amount of reading that you have to do as a university student?
DAVID: Yes! It looks pretty daunting at first, with those long reading lists. Don't think that the students have to read everything that's listed. Try to find out which are the most important items on the list – ask the lecturer or tutor if necessary, and then, if your time is limited, spend it reading those books thoroughly.
