Man: Daisy, I need to know your report on the 2 kinds of cement for the building project.
Woman: Well, from my research I learned that the cement company on Sturbridge Street has fast drying and very strong cement but it is more expensive. The company on Baker Street is cheaper but the cement is not as strong and takes longer to dry.
Man: Thank you. I’ll take a look at the differences and decide which company is best for the project.
Woman: I agree. You should think about the prices very carefully before giving the final decision, especially with our recent budget cuts.
Questions 44 - 46 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Hello, would you be interested in a Mike’s Restaurant promotional card? All I need is your name, address, and phone number.

Man: It is a great steakhouse that specializes in a variety of beef entrees. If you give me your information I can give you the card right now so you can use it for dinner tonight. The card will allow you one free appetizer with any order.
Woman: Yum. Steak is my favorite. My name is Sally Pepper and I live at 23 Plain Street. My number is 565-58943. By the way where is the restaurant?
Questions 47 - 49 refer to the following conversation:
Woman: The flight for our business trip is at 7:30a.m. so I think we should leave early and try to arrive at the airport by 6:00a.m.
Man: Yes, I agree. I think we should take the subway instead of a taxi since it will be during rush hour. I am worried that if we take a taxi we might get stuck in the traffic jam.
Woman: That’s a great idea. Let’s meet at the office and then we can walk to the station together.
Man: Sure. It will take about a half an hour to get to the airport, so let’s meet at 5:30a.m.
Questions 50 - 52 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Hi there, I would like one copy of today’s edition of the New York Times please.
Woman: I’m sorry sir, we just ran out of the Times. We sold our last copy about fifteen minutes ago.

Woman: We don’t have any newspapers left, but we do have the latest issue of the World News Magazine. It is a very interesting magazine, and since we don’t have the newspaper you are looking for, I would be happy to give you the World News Magazine at a discounted price.
Questions 53 - 55 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Hello Jenny, I am calling to inform you that my flight from Bangkok was delayed so I will not be able to make my 3p.m. meeting with Bob about the sales reports.
Woman: Ok, Mr. Draper, I will notify Bob that your flight is delayed and will set up a new time. I think that it will take you at least an hour to get from the airport to the office, so I will see if we can reschedule the meeting for 4:30p.m
Man: Yes, that sounds good. Thank you, Jenny I really appreciate it.
Woman: Not a problem, sir. I will make sure everything is arranged by the time you get back.
Questions 56 - 58 refer to the following conversation:

Questions 59 - 61 refer to the following conversation:
Man: I can’t believe how much snow we have been getting! Just now as I was walking on the street the snow came up to my ankles.
Woman: Yeah, the weather is very bad outside. I was watching the news and the weatherman said that the storm might last a few more days. The roads are already so dangerous to drive on, and if it keeps snowing this much, the reporters say the airport will be temporarily closed down.
Man: Oh no! Well, I guess with such bad travel conditions we should probably delay the regional meeting.
Woman: That’s a good idea but I think we should wait for our boss to make the final decision.

Woman: Thank you so much for your help. I arrived in town for work just a few days ago and I still have to figure out where everything is.

Questions 65 - 67 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Hello Joana. I am calling to let you know that I might be late coming back from the Hong Kong business trip. We are still negotiating the contract with the customers.
Woman: Hi Jack. What is the problem? Is there an issue with the material costs or the project’s deadline?
Man: No, we figured all those things out already. The problem is that the customers don’t agree with some of the termination terms we have proposed.
Woman: Ok. I will tell the manager about the situation and let him know that you may be staying for an extra day.
Questions 68 - 70 refer to the following conversation:
Man: Wow! I am so excited that I was chosen as employee of the year!

Team Leader, Accounting Services
A Business Inc.
123 6 Ave North
Fake Town, AB T1J 1M8
Dear Ms. Smith:
You have done a fantastic job stepping into the role of Team Leader this year. Our company was in a tough spot with the departure of one of our senior members and your willingness to assume the role has been a major factor in our continued success. Your contributions to the company have been very beneficial. You are an innovative thinker and a true team player. As you have assumed new job responsibilities I can appreciate your interest in attending the Leadership Conference in Toronto from March 25 to 30.
As you are aware our company’s financial year-end is March 31, 2010. This is a very busy time of year for all of us, but especially hectic for the management team. As we move through the year-end process, the other team leaders will need your input and experience. You will find your team members also rely on you for guidance during the last few days of March. It will be most important for you to be here to go through your first year-end cycle as it can present a steep learning curve at times.
We are fortunate that the Leardership Conference is offered at multiple times during the year. I believe the next offering is July 2 to July 7, 2010. If this time is convenient with your schedule, we could explore sending you then. I look forward to continuing to work with you Jane, and helping you to grow your leadership skills.

Real Street Fidel #3
July 5, 2012
Mr. Menlo Ortega
Director of Investment Funds
By the following letter of complaint, I would like to express my un-satisfaction with the treatment received at the branch, by the operator Francisco Garza who kindly attended at first, until the conversation took worse paths and ending with an assault on my wife.
We have not made any complaint to the police and we prefer that this regrettable incident is settled in a friendly manner. But I convey my deep un-satisfaction with what happened and I propose a meeting with you and Mr. Francisco to fix everything in a civilized manner.
No other tasks, yours truly
Dear Mr Diaz,
I have been forwarded a copy of your letter dated 5 July – which had been sent to our director, Mr. Menlo Ortega – and I was very sorry to learn that you had left our branch feeling upset. I apologize for the distress you have experienced as a result. I can assure you that it was not my intention to cause you dissatisfaction and to assault your wife. It was the unexpected result of my continuous stressful situation, I had just gotten a divorce and this had been utterly affecting my life, which led to the fact that I couldn’t keep my emotion under control and unintentionally treated you in a bad way.
Once again I am very sorry that you were upset by my manner. Your letter has given me the opportunity to reflect on this and I would like to reassure you that although it was not intentional, I have taken your feedback seriously and will endeavour to use your comments in a positive way in my future dealings with clients.
I hope that you will accept my explanation and apology for what occurred. If you are not satisfied with my response please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to arrange a meeting.

Questions 196-200 refer to the following email message and advertisement.
Subject: Inquiry about Office Space
My name is David Brown and I am the President and C.E.O. of Brown Worldwide. My company is currently expanding and we are looking for a new office space. I came across your Internet advertisement for an office adjacent to the courthouse and am very interested in the space. The location is perfect for the company but the price is a little high. Your advertisement mentions that the terms of the agreement are negotiable and so I wonder if it would be possible to discuss the price. If we were to sign a long-term contract for about three years would it be possible to lower the price of the rent? Also, before I make any commitments, I would like to visit the space. Would it be possible to stop by Monday at 3 p.m.? I look forward to hearing from you and hope we can work something out. Thank you and have a nice day.
