Section 2
A. Description.
This table shows the number of commuters into central London between 7:00 am and
10:00 am daily. The total number is 1,023,0
  00. Of these, 405,000 travel by
underground?that's 29% of the total, and 28% travel by British Rail?that's 391,000
people daily. 10% use both rail and underground, and 10%, 99,000 people, travel by bus.
That means a total of 788,000 people, 77%, on public transport. The remainder use
private transport. 197,000 come by car and the rest come either by motorbike or bicycle.
This means 4% come by motorbike or bicycle, and 19% by car.
B. Conversation.
Mrs. Nicholas went away for a fortnight. Before she went, she called in at the local police
station and talked to the policeman on duty.
Mrs. Nicholas: I'm going away to the seaside for a few days and I'd like you to keep an eye
on my home while I'm away.
Policeman: Certainly, Madam. What's your name and address?
Mrs. Nicholas: The name's Nicholas, and the address is 14 Spring Vale.
Policeman: Thank you. You'll lock all the doors, and make sure all the windows are shut,
won't you?
Mrs. Nicholas: Of course.
Policeman: And you'll remember to cancel the milk.
Mrs. Nicholas: Yes, I've already done that.
Policeman: And the papers.
Mrs. Nicholas: Yes.
Policeman: And you won't leave any ladders about.
Mrs. Nicholas: No, we haven't got a big ladder.
Policeman: That's fine. Are you friendly with the people next door?
Mrs. Nicholas: Yes, we are.
Policeman: Well, I think you'd better tell them you're going away, too. Ask them to give us
a ring if they see or hear anything suspicious.
Mrs. Nicholas: Yes, I will. Thank you.
C. A Party.
There is a party in progress and one person A is standing by the drinks table serving
drinks. B approaches and A offers her a drink.
B: Aha, I thought you might be here.
A: Ah, hello. How are you?
B: Not bad. How are you?
A: All right, I suppose.
B: What are you drinking?
A: Some sort of wine. Do you want some?
B: No, I think I'd prefer beer. Have they got any?
A: Yes, there's some over there.
(B pours out a drink.)
B: Well, what do you think of the party?
A: It's not bad. I'm not really in the mood for a party, though.
B: Why's that?'
A: I don't know, really. I suppose I'm a bit tired.
(During the last exchange C has approached the table to get a drink. A offers C a drink but
accidentally drops it.)
A: Oh, sorry about that.
C: (annoyed) I should think so!
A: Don't worry. It's not too bad.
C: What do you mean? It's gone all over my trousers?I only bought them last week.
A: There's no need to shout.
C: (loudly) I'm not shouting.
A: Yes, you are.
C: (very loudly) No, I'm not!
B: (wanting to calm the situation) Look, look, why don't you dry them with this?
C: (ignoring B) You should watch what you're doing!
A: What do you mean? It was your fault!
B: How about another drink? (C ignores B.)
C: Anyway, don't I know you?
B: Do you want another drink? (C ignores B.)
A: You might do.
C: You didn't go to St. Mark's School, did you?
A: Yes, I did actually.
C: Yes, I remember now. You were going out with that awful girl, weren't you?
A: What do you mean?
C: You know, the one with the big nose. What happened to her?
A: We got married, actually. In fact, that's her over there.
C: Yes ...
