Unit 1-- Conversation 1
Janet: So this is the Cherwell Boathouse ? it's lovely! And look at those people punting! It looks quite easy. Mark: I'm not so sure about that! Janet, there's something Kate and I wanted to discuss with you. Some people in college are organizing charity events this term. We've decided to get involved. Janet: Raising money for charity? Right. In China, people raise money for charity but students don't usually do that. Mark: Students often do that here. Anyway, we're thinking of doing sponsored punting. Janet: Sponsored punting! What's that? Kate: Sponsoring is when people pay you to do something ? like run a long distance. So people would be sponsoring students to punt. Janet: What a great idea! I'd love to join you! Mark: That's why we're telling you about it. So that's decided then. Let's make a list of things we need to do. Kate: I'll do that. One of the first things we should do is choose the charity. Mark: Yes. And choose a day for the event. And we need to design the sponsorship form. I've got one here. Kate: That looks fine, but we must change the wording. Who wants to do that? Mark: I'll do that. What have we got so far? Kate: Choose a charity. Also a day for the event. Change the wording on the sponsorship form... Um ... We have to decide where the punt will start from. Mark: Cherwell Boathouse, no question! It's a very beautiful route from here, apparently. Kate: I'm with you on that. Janet: Me too Janet: I'm not used to boats ? Woah! Mark: Whoops! Kate: Watch out! You nearly hit me with that thing! Mark: Sorry! I didn't mean to. ... OK, we're off! Kate: Maybe I should do the punting. Mark:It's fine.I've got the hang of it now ?give me a chance. Kate: Well, I'd like to have a go. Mark: Supposing I do the first hour. Then you can take over for a while, if you want to. Kate: Yes, great. Janet: You're really good at it, Mark! This is fantastic! It's exactly how I imagined life here! Look over there ?isn't it lovely! Kate: Yes, it is.
Janet: Fantastic! I'm so enjoying this! Mark: Hey guys, I've got a suggestion ? how about moving over to the bank and we can have our picnic! Hey, look, there's Louise and Sophie! Mark: Whoo ... Girls: Mark! Janet: Are you all right? Mark: Er .Of course I'm all right. Kate, I think it's your turn to punt!
Unit 2?Conversation 1
Kate: Come in. Hey, Janet. Janet: Hi Kate, are you busy? Kate: Yes, I'm just doing an essay. But it's great to see you. So what's new? Janet: Well, nothing much. Kate: You look a bit fed up. What's bugging you? Janet: Well, I had a phone call from my parents and it made me feel homesick. It happens every time they call, and it gets me down. Kate: I'm sorry to hear that. I know how you feel. I love speaking to my mum and dad, but I always feel miserable after the call. Janet: My dad doesn't say much, and I want to speak to him, but I wish I knew what to say. Kate: Don't let it get to you. My dad doesn't say much on the phone either. I call, he answers the phone, and says, "Hi, I'll pass you to your mother." It's really irritating. Janet: But I miss him and my mother a lot, and I like to hear his voice. Kate: Just tell him what you're up to. Janet: Sometimes I feel as if I made a mistake leaving home and coming to Oxford. Sometimes I feel like a moody teenager. Kate: Try not to worry about it, Janet. It's normal to feel like that. I understand how you feel, but I bet everything will be fine next term. You'll get used to it. Hey, why don't you do what I do? Janet: What's that? Kate: When my dad calls, I ask him for more money! He usually says no, but at least I get to hear his voice! Janet: Maybe. I'm sorry to take up your time, Kate, but I must go now. Bye! Kate: Wait a minute ...!\
Unit 2--Conversation 2
Kate: I think I may have upset Janet last night. Mark: What happened? Kate: She came to see me. I was busy doing an essay but I was really pleased to see her. She'd had a call from home, and said she was feeling homesick. Mark: Poor kid! It must be tough when you guys living so far away from home. Kate: I tried to make her laugh, told her not to worry about it, and that it was normal to feel miserable. Suddenly she looked miserable, and then she got up and said, "I must go now" and left my room. It was really sudden. I felt
Unit 1--Conversation 2
Janet: Kate, everything's organized, isn't it, for collecting the sponsorship money? Kate: Yes, I've arranged for people to get the money to me by next Friday ? if they haven't paid online. I'll count it all up. Janet: Good. We'd better have a meeting soon after that, don't you think? How much have we raised? Kate: About 6

as if I'd said something wrong. Mark: Maybe she was just being polite. It was probably because she realized you were working and didn't want to disturb you. Kate: I just wonder if she found it difficult to talk about her feelings with me. Maybe I shouldn't have tried to make her laugh? Perhaps she thought I wasn't taking her seriously. Mark: I wouldn't worry about it. Put yourself in her shoes. How would you feel if you were a student at college in China? Kate: I know. That's why I feel bad. If only she had stayed longer! I wish I could have helped her more. Janet: Hey, everyone! Mark: Hi Janet, you look cheerful! Janet: Yes, I've just got my essay back. I got an alpha minus! Kate: What an amazing grade! Well done. Mark: I'm really happy for you, Janet. Janet: I feel on top of the world!
the thieves use them and then abandon them, apparently, and then people find them and report them. Mark: So you might get it back. Kate: I hope so, Mark, I really do. It's just too much, you know? But ... um ... what else? She told me to go to this sale they have of abandoned bikes. She thinks I might find it there. But it's only every two months, I can't wait till then! Honestly, Mark, I'm really furious! Mark: You can always buy a cheap bike on eBay. Kate: Hello ... Speaking ... You found it! Where was it? Is it ...? Oh, that's fantastic news! There was a lamp and a basket on it ... Right ... OK, thank you, I'll be in tomorrow morning to pick it up. Unbelievable! This guy found it! Mark: Brilliant! Was that the police? Kate: Yes. What they said was, someone dumped it outside this guy's backyard. Mark: That's so strange! Kate: The lamp's been stolen and the basket. Mark: Forget about it! You're lucky to get it back!
Unit 3?Conversation 1
Kate: So, what did you think of the movie? Mark: It was good but I thought it was too long. Kate: Yes, me too. Kate: Hey, where's my bike? I don't believe it! It's gone! Mark: It was next to mine, you chained it up! Kate: Someone's stolen it! Oh, how could they! Mark: Oh, Kate! Kate: How could someone have done this! The creep! Mark: It's a really mean thing to do, steal a bike. Kate: It was a mountain bike and it cost a fortune ?I don't have the money to buy another one. Mark: Listen, I'll go down the street and see if I can see anyone with it. Why don't you go into that shop and see if they've seen anything suspicious? I'll be back in a minute. Kate: OK. Kate: Well? Mark: No luck. What did they say in the shop? Kate: I asked the shopkeeper if she'd seen anything ? Mark: And? Kate: She said she hadn't. I guess it was a long shot. She advised me to report it to the police. But according to her, bikes get stolen all the time around here. Mark: Listen, let's get back so you can report it. Kate: I've got no bike. I'm just so upset! Mark: It's not far to college. Come on!
Unit 4-- Conversation 1
Mark: This is just so crazy! Janet: What? Mark: This story I'm reading. Kate: So tell us. Mark: A man within a wheelchair crossing the road in front of a lorry at some traffic lights. Somehow, the back of the wheelchair got stuck on the front of the lorry. When the lorry started moving, it took the wheelchair and the man with it! Kate: You're joking! Mark: The driver drove for several miles at 80 kilometres an hour before he stopped at a garage. The man was unhurt because his seat belt had stopped him falling out. Janet: What a terrible story! Thank goodness the man was all right! Mark: The police asked the driver if he'd realized he had a passenger. The driver said he had no idea at all. Mark: Do you want to hear another one? A funny one this time. Kate: Go on. Mark: A woman reported that her car had been stolen and that she'd left her mobile phone in the car. The policeman suggested calling the mobile. When he did, the thief answered it. The policeman told the thief that he was answering an ad in the paper and that he wanted to buy the car. And the thief agreed to sell it! Janet: He didn't! Mark: So they arranged to meet and the thief was arrested and the woman got her car back. Janet: A happy ending! Mark: You get these great stories in the papers ? I alway
Unit 3--Conversation 2
Mark: So did you ring the police? Kate: Yes. I went to the police station to report it. Mark: What did they say? Kate: No one's found it. This woman said that Oxford has the fifth highest rate of bike theft in the country! Mark: You're joking! Kate: That's what she said. Mark: What else did she say? Kate: She told me that sometimes you do get bikes back ?

Unit 4--Conversation 2
Voice on radio: The news at one o'clock. Tornadoes have damaged homes in Northern England. There is still no news of missing company director, Alan
Marsden. Scientists claim that global warming is accelerating. There are reports coming in of more fighting in ... Mark: Do you mind if I turn it off? Janet: It's fine, I wasn't listening. Mark: Do you follow the news? Janet: Yeah, I do. But I don't often listen to the radio, I mostly get my news online. Kate: Do you? Janet: Yes, I read articles from different papers. Kate: My dad does that. Mark: Well, I've got used to reading real newspapers. Janet: You should try reading the news online. You get lots of different views, it's very stimulating. Mark: True, it is stimulating. But I've got into the habit of reading the papers in the JCR ? in a comfortable armchair, with lots of black coffee. Kate: Don't either of you listen to the radio? It's a great way to wake up. Mark: Yeah, I do that. And I download podcasts. And I watch the news on telly. Kate: You're a news addict. We all know that. Mark: You have to be if you read PPE. You have to be really knowledgeable about current affairs. Janet: You are. Kate: Well, I'm a TV addict. I spend too much time watching the soaps. I love British TV. Janet: We've noticed, Kate. Are you going to watch Friends with me tonight? Kate: You bet!
states, one after another. It took him ten years to conquer them, each with a different strategy. Mark: What kind of man was he? Janet: Well, he was brilliant, obviously. And also wise. He had this huge army ? they were very powerful. After his army had attacked the first state, the next state surrendered without much fight. They were so terrified. Kate: Wow! Janet: What else? The army leaders were very clever, they used a river to flood a city. Mark: That can't have been easy. Janet: Yes, anyway, after conquering the last state, Qin made himself Emperor of the whole of China. Mark: Was he the emperor who created the Terracotta Warriors? Janet: That's right. He was so afraid of death that he wanted them to guard him in the afterlife.
Unit 5--Conversation 2
Becky: OK. Kate: Thank you. Mark: Thanks. Kate: So go on about Emperor Qin. It's really interesting. Janet: It is, isn't it? Well, so he unified China and that was an incredible achievement. But as a result, huge numbers of soldiers were killed. Kate: About how many? Janet: Oh, I don't know, something like 500,000 men? Kate: That is huge. Mark: So how do the Chinese see Qin? Janet: He's seen as the greatest emperor in Chinese history. Mark: Why? Because he unified China? That's a very good reason, mind you. Janet: Not only that. The thing is, as a result of the unification, he did many amazing things. He built roads all across China, he standardized writing ... and also the money system. Oh, and the system for measuring and weighing things as well. Mark: So he was a great leader for China. Janet: Yes, he was, but he was also very cruel. Mark: Yes, but most emperors were cruel, weren't they? Kate: Well I guess that's true. You're right. Mark: So did he have enemies? Janet:Of course,I think all great emperors have some enemies. Some people hated him so much they tried to kill him! Mark: Was he the emperor who built the Great Wall of China? Janet: He built the first Great Wall. You see, tribes from the north were always trying to invade so he built a huge wall across China to stop them. Hundreds of thousands of men died building it. Kate: It's so sad ? all those thousands of people dying. Mark: But then ... that's war, isn't it?
Unit 5?Conversation 1
Mark: Hi! Kate: Hi, Janet! Have you been waiting long? Janet: Not at all. What did you think of Hero? Kate: It was brilliant, thanks for suggesting it. Janet: Well, it was nominated for an Oscar, you know. Kate: That figures. It's a beautiful film. Mark: Yes. The costumes, and scenery were amazing, Kate: I'd love to know more about the emperor, he was cool. Who was he? Janet: Qin Shi Huang ? it's said he was the first emperor in the history of China ? he unified China. Kate: Did he? When? Janet: Er ... 221 BC. Mark: As long ago as that! Waitress: Hi guys! What can I get you? Kate: Yes, I'll have a coke, thanks. Mark: Er ... Just a coffee. Wai
