Task 2: Dictation
Passage 1: The Knowledge
Becoming a London taxi driver isn’t easy. In order to obtain a licence to drive a taxi in London, candidates have to pass a detailed examination. They have to learn not only the streets, landmarks and hotels, but also the quickest way to get there. This is called “The Knowledge” by London Cab drivers and it can take years of study and practice to get ‘The Knowledge’. Candidates are examined not only on the quickest routes but also on the quickest routes at different times of the day. People who want to pass the examination spend much of their free time driving or even cycling around London, studying maps and learning the huge street directory by heart.
Passage 2: The Underground
Travelling on the London underground (the ‘tube’) presents few difficulties for visitors because of the clear colour- coded maps. It is always useful to have plenty of spare change with you because there are often long queues at the larger stations. If you have enough change you can buy your ticket from a machine. You will find signs which list the stations in alphabetical order, with the correct fares, near the machines. There are automatic barriers which are operated by the tickets. You should keep the ticket, because it is checked at the destination.

Task 2: Dictation
The Foolish Frog
Once upon a time a big, fat frog lived in a tiny shallow pond. He knew every plant and stone in it, and he could swim across it easily. He was the biggest creature in the pond, so he was very important. When he croaked, the water-snails listened politely. And the water-beetles always swam behind him. He was very happy there.
One day, while he was catching flies, a pretty dragon-fly passed by. ‘You’re a very fine frog,’ she sang, ‘but why don’t you live in a bigger pond? Come to my pond. You’ll find a lot of frogs there. You’ll meet some fine fish, and you’ 11 see the dangerous ducks. And you must see our lovely water-lilies. Life in a large pond is wonderful!’
‘Perhaps it is rather dull here,’ thought the foolish frog. So he hopped after the dragon-fly.
But he didn’t like the big, deep pond. It was full of strange plants. The water-snails were rude to him, and he was afraid of the ducks. The fish didn’t like him, and he was the smallest frog there. He was lonely and unhappy.
He sat on a water-lily leaf and croaked sadly to himself, ‘I don’t like it here. I think I’ll go home tomorrow.’
But a hungry heron flew down and swallowed him up for supper.
