Unit 16

Section I

Task 1

Woman: Ouch! Ow, that hurt. I just burned my finger!

Man: It’s not lighting, is it? Maybe the charcoal’s wet. It’s been outside all week, and

it rained yesterday. It’s probably still damp.

Woman: Maybe. I have an idea . . . Here. Let’s put this on.

Man: OK. Not too much, though. Give me another match . . . No—it’s not lighting.

Woman: Oh, you know, let’s just go inside and cook these in the kitchen. This is too

much hassle. We don’t have to use this thing.

Man: Good idea. Let’s just fry these burgers.

Woman: Here, I’ll take them in and throw them in the frying pan.

Man: OK. Pass me that plate, please?

Task 2

Man: What are you doing?

Woman: Oh, I’m nearly done. I’m waiting for it to start up again.

Man: It crashed?

Woman: Yeah, it crashed. Well, it crashed three times, actually.

Man: Why?

Woman: Don’t know. It’s a pain, though. Look, it’s doing it again. It gets to here, and

then it gets stuck or something.

Man: Here, let me look. I’m not that good at this, but . . .

Woman: Better than me.

Man: Need to reload the software, I think. Got the disc?

Woman: Yeah, here.

Man: OK, put it in. There. Let’s just start again. Oh, it’s still not working. Huh. I don’t

know. Maybe you’d better call customer support.

Task 3

Man: You need some help?

Woman: Thanks. I’m having trouble with this. I can’t get it back on.

Man: What happened?

Woman: I don’t know. It just fell off.

Man: Huh. Maybe it was loose or something.

Woman: Oops, dropped it again. It won’t stay on.

Man: Here. I’ll do it for you . . . There.

Woman: Oh, thanks. I couldn’t live without it. I have to carry so much stuff around

for class. Well, thanks.

Man: You’re welcome. It wasn’t that difficult.

Section II

Task 1

Rhiannon: So your cousin got engaged?

Katie: My cousin got engaged and it's all going to happen quite quickly I think.

Rhiannon: Really?

Katie: They're going to get married in three months time. (Laughs)

Rhiannon: That's really quick.

Kevin: It is, yeah.

Katie: It is, but it's exciting. And I think, 'cause our family get on so well, we're all

gonna . . .

Kevin: Really?

Katie: Yeah.

Kevin: I, I can't imagine that. Just having that kind of group that you get along with,

that's your family. It's just, it's wild to me.

Katie: Really?

Kevin: Yeah, I just don't have a big family.

Katie: So what do you, what do you mean? You don't see your family that much?

Kevin: I just don't have many of them. I've got friends that are like close to me like

family but I've got like, I've got my parents and but they live in, you know, across the

ocean so I hardly see them and . . .

Katie: Yeah.

Rhiannon: Sounds lovely. (Laughs) Mine try and bully me into going round and you

know but, oh, just . . .

Katie: You don't like it?

Rhiannon: Well, you know, there's no choice involved, is there? We just share genes,

we don't share anything else in common. Like you'll be with like hundreds of cousins,

won't you?

Katie: I love it. I get on so well with everyone and I think maybe it helps 'cause I'm

sort of similar age, but you're similar age to your cousins.

Rhiannon: Yeah. And it doesn't mean . . .

Katie: You don't get on?

Rhiannon: Well, they're just a bit boring. You know if I had choice I'd be with my

friends. But why would I hang out with people just because our parents are like you

know, brother and sister? It's just kind of, I don't know, I mean I just can't relate. But

anyway, it sounds . . . I’m sure you'll have an amazing time. I just . . .

Katie: Well, I think, well, I'm really excited 'cause I think, um, Haley—the bride—she

wants us all to get involved so I think what'll happen is, um, Mum and I will go

down . . .

Rhiannon: I think she wants you to do half the work?

Katie: Yeah. Well, I think you know we can all, all do it. My other cousin, um, Katie,

she'll do something as well. And then um . . . Actually, have you got any tips? Do you

think there could be anything, have you been to any weddings?

Rhiannon: Go to India and pretend you're not in the country? (Laughs)

Katie: Poor Rhia. I'm not gonna do that, I'm quite excited about getting involved

and . . .

Rhiannon: What do you mean? What kind of like stuff do you?

Katie: Well, I'm thinking if there's three months to go, we've got, we've got to plan

you know the table placings . . . We've got to get.

Rhiannon: Where are they doing it?

Katie: Um, they're doing it in Surrey, so that's where they're from.

Rhiannon: Is that where all your family is?

Katie: Yeah, we're all quite close together.

Kevin: Ah, man.

Katie: Um, and I'm just thinking they've got, we've probably got . . . gosh, our family's

huge, so there'll be at least a hundred at the wedding.

Rhiannon: Oh, my god.

Kevin: Are your cousins kind of like really close friends? Is that how you see them?

Katie: Yeah, they are, they are, we're all a sort of similar age, or range you know, over

the sort of five or six years between us, so we, we do get on really well.

Rhiannon: Yeah, but my cousins are the same age as me, and you know they just, I

don't know just don't get each other. I don't think there's any reason that people who

are the same age will get each other. Do you know what I mean, like? You know . . .

Katie: But then… you know, well my cousins, I'd say, were friends, they know my

friends as well and sometimes if I go . . .

Rhiannon: Really? You go out together?

Katie: To the cinema or yeah. Yeah.

Kevin: Wow. (Laughs)

Rhiannon: That's really weird to me—the thought of that.

Kevin: It is.

Katie: Really?

Rhiannon: I think I last saw my cousin who's closest to me about six years ago at my

granddad's funeral. But that was the last time . . .

Katie: Right.

Rhiannon: And my, obviously like my Grandma, likes this idea that we see each other

and she's always like saying, oh, James is well and I'm like . . .

Kevin: (Laughs)

Katie: Yeah, that's lovely.

Rhiannon: I'm sure. And it makes me sound mean maybe, but it's just fake to pretend

that that we're kinda are interested.

Kevin: Hmm.

Rhiannon: I mean we're all busy and we've got jobs to do. I've got friends to keep up

with and I can't keep up with my cousins as well.

Katie: All your family?

Rhiannon: Well, yeah.

Katie: And what, Kevin, have you got a big family or is . . .

Kevin: No. Like I said, like I said, I don't know what it's like to have these cousins

that are all like your friends. It's just . . .

Rhiannon: You've got brothers and sisters though, have you? Or not?

Kevin: No. No, it's just me, you know. It's, it's so . . .

Rhiannon: Oh, god, I thought you had . . .

Kevin: So, me and my parents. And that's it.

Katie: And what about aunts and uncles and cousins . . .

Rhiannon: Is that like, do you feel like pressurized to like be a good son all the time?

Kevin: Yeah, I suppose I do. Yeah. (Laughs) I guess so. But I mean, my parents are

really supportive.

Katie: How often do you see . . .

Kevin: I see them like a couple of times a year, we always talk.

Katie: Yeah.

Rhiannon: Do you go to America twice a year?

Kevin: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Rhiannon: Wow.

Kevin: You kind of feel like you have to. You know, well, not have to, but I really . . .

'Cause . . .

Rhiannon: Do they come here?

Kevin: They do, yeah, yeah. They're like my only connection to…in the past. You

know I mean, it's my parents.

Katie: Oh. I'd miss my family so much.

Rhiannon: But my friends are my past. Do you know what I mean?

Kevin: Yeah, yeah. But they didn't, you know they didn't give birth to me, you know

what I mean, they're my friends.

Katie: Yeah.

Task 2

Kevin: So, yeah I went for this move right? It was a dyno from about six feet, so it

was, it was a long way.

Rhiannon: A dyno?

Kevin: Yeah, it's a dynamic move. That's when you hold onto two and you jump for

another one. It was a pretty good jump, but it was a finger pocket so I went up for it

and I got it, but I only got it with one and then as I was falling back, it kind of slipped

and twisted and so, well I hyper-extended these two fingers and so now it . . .

Katie and Rhiannon: (Gasp) Oh!

Kevin: I can't really move them.

Rhiannon: Oww!

Kevin: Yeah, and I won't be climbing for a long time which really is no good.

Rhiannon: You're crazy.

Kevin: It was, it was amazing.

Katie: So wait a minute, mountain climbing, that's quite dangerous.

Kevin: I guess, but if you know, it's got some risk to it, but you've got safety stuff.

You've got harnesses and you've got ropes and stuff. It's not that bad.

Rhiannon: I'd so much rather be in a gym, like, doing my yoga, or like in a pool where

no, no sharks are gonna get me. I'm not gonna fall off any mountains. Like I get it,

you know, but ahh it's too . . . I mean, and now you can't do it because you know,

you've hurt yourself.

Kevin: Yeah, yeah, but I mean I've had some great experiences with it, that I wouldn't

trade for anything.

Katie: God, forget the exercise totally, I say!

Rhiannon: (Laughs) Why?

Katie: I'd much rather be on the sofa, great DVD, I don't know, one of the classics,

The Sound of Music, Grease?

Kevin: Ah!

Katie: Something like that. Just sit there and watch a movie.

Kevin: Why would you watch a movie when you can be out there into, you know, into

the great blue yonder and do stuff man. That's what it's all about.

Katie: I wouldn't be able to do it. Can you imagine climbing up a mountain with what?

A, however, fifty foot drop or something?

Kevin: Yeah, yeah, at least! At least.

Rhiannon: But yeah, I just can't really connect with quite how, you know, dramatic

your hobbies are!

Kevin: Well, yeah, it's just kind of what I do.

Rhiannon: Do you read and stuff? Do you have downtime?

Kevin: Well, no, I, reading is, reading is boring. I mean, you don't get the kind of, it

doesn't grab me in the same way.

Rhiannon: Really? Do you never read?

Kevin: No, I don't remember.

Rhiannon: Not reading anything?

Kevin: I don't remember the last thing . . . I might have read a climbing magazine a

couple of weeks ago.

Rhiannon: No, that doesn't really count.

Kevin: So, yeah, no, I guess I don't really read.

Katie: Hey have you read recently? Anything recently?

Rhiannon: Um, no, I could do with a new one.

Katie: Well, I've just read, you know the Stieg Larsson books he's got the three, that

have come out. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo—absolutely brilliant!

Rhiannon: Are they?

Katie: Yeah, yeah, read it. Bit dark.

Rhiannon: 'Cause I just wondered if everyone was reading them and I kind of you

know, better had.

Katie: No, it's brilliant. If you're into to sort of thriller . . . Um it's, it's sort of a

detective . . .

Rhiannon: OK.

Katie: Yeah, it's really good. He's such a good writer. And now they've brought them

into films—so read the books before. I haven't seen the films yet.

Rhiannon: It's always best to read the books first, I think, isn't it? Otherwise, the film

can be a bit, disappointing, I think, can't it?

Katie: And I'm not a massive reader, so I wasn't sure how I'd get on, but yeah, no,

they're really good.

Rhiannon: OK. Maybe you could lend them to me.

Katie: I really recommend them. Yeah, of course.

Rhiannon: You will lend it to me, yeah.

Katie: I'm just trying to think of films as well, some good films that have come out . . .

Kevin: (Sighs)

Rhiannon: Don't you go to the cinema ever? Listen to that sigh!

Kevin: Sorry, sorry. I just don't have any interest in that man, I'd just.

Katie: You'd just rather be . . .

Kevin: Yeah, I'd rather be out there. Doing things.

Rhiannon: Breathing in fresh air.

Kevin: . . . Doing things that really test me.

Rhiannon: Yeah, but it takes like, a month. Whereas you can go to the cinema and see

ninety minutes of another person's world—and it's there.

Kevin: Mmm.

Rhiannon: I think that's so amazing that you can drop into another culture like that.

And you know, you can go and see a French film, and kind of learn about you know, a

French school if you go and see The Chorus, or you can go and see Y Tu Mamá

También and see like a road trip. I just think, it's such a kind of brilliant way of, of,

you know, experiencing other things.

Katie: Absolutely.

Rhiannon: You don't, you don't get that.

Kevin: No, no. I'd rather just go there. Do it. I'd rather go. My idea would be, my idea

of a perfect holiday would be like a first ascent on some, on a mountain that no one

had ever climbed before.

Rhiannon: You're crazy. (Laughs)

Kevin: In Pakistan, or Afghanistan or something. That would be amazing.

Katie: No one's ever climbed them, because it's dangerous!

Kevin: Exactly. No one has done it yet! And it could be me. I could do it.

Rhiannon: Yeah . . .

Katie: Kevin, you're crazy.

Kevin: I could name a mountain after myself. How awesome would that be?

Rhiannon: “Kevin the Mountain.” (Laughs)

Kevin: Yeah, yeah! “Mount Kevin”.

Rhiannon and Katie: (Laughs)

Kevin: That would be incredible!

Katie: “Mount Kevin?”

Rhiannon: That would be incredible. Yeah.

Katie: Although I think “Mount Rhiannon” sounds better.

Rhiannon: I think that sound good. Yeah.

Katie: It sounds really good.

Kevin: That does actually, it sounds really good.

Rhiannon: “Mount Katie?”

Katie: No . . . “Mount Katie.”

Rhiannon: Not if you're gonna stay home and watch the telly. It's not gonna happen, is

it?

Katie: I think watching telly. I'd much rather watch you climbing on television.

Kevin: (Laughs)

Katie: That would be classic!

Kevin: Yeah. Yeah.

Rhiannon: (Laughs)

Section III

Voice-over: Bath, in the county of Somerset in the South West of England has

attracted visitors from Roman times to the present day due to its natural hot spring

waters.

One of its most famous residents was the novelist Jane Austen. She knew the city

well and many Bath locations feature in her novels.

The 15th century Abbey is just around the corner from the Roman Baths, the most

famous landmark in the city.

Sally Lunn‟s house in North Parade Passage is the oldest house in Bath. Jane

Austen would probably have known the „Sally Lunn Buns‟, a type of cake you can try

in the quaint restaurant.

Bath is also famous for its many elegant 18th century Georgian stone buildings.

Great Pulteney Street is the longest and widest street. Jane lived nearby at number 4

Sydney Place.

“I think the architecture in Bath is very well preserved. I think it’s a UNESCO

Heritage Site which is why they are not allowed to build new things and I think that’s

very nice because it keeps the city very authentic. So you really do have the feeling of

walking in a Jane Austen movie, really.”

Voice-over: The Royal Crescent contains thirty houses most of which are divided up

into apartments today. Gainsborough, the portrait painter, lived in the Circus, another

well-known Georgian street.

Jane often went to the Assembly Rooms which in her day was a meeting place

where people drank tea, then a great novelty.

Over the River Avon is Pulteney Bridge; unique in the UK as it has shops actually

on the bridge itself. Nearby you can enjoy the Parade Gardens, with views of Pulteney

Weir.
