    (Section 1: You will hear a conversation between a clerk and a student who wants to join the leisure centre. First, you will have some time to look at questions 1 to 5 [20 seconds]. Now, listen carefully and answer questions 1 to 5.)

    L=Lara

    M=Mike

    L: Hi, I'd like to join the leisure centre.

    M: Ok, I can help you with that. Have you filled out an application form yet?

    L: Um, no.

    M: Ok, that’s fine. Just a second, I’ll go and get you one. Right. Now, let’s start with a couple of questions about your personal details and then I’ll ask you about your membership preferences.

    L: Ok.

    M: Good, so what's your name?

    L: It’s Lara.

    M: OK, and your surname?

    L: Knight. That’s K-N-I-G-H-T

    M: G-H-T?

    L: Yes.

    M: Got it. And what's your address?

    L: Flat 1, 52 High Street, Salthill.

    M: OK, and the post code?

    L: KY25 6BH.

    M: Ok. And your telephone number?

    L: 0121 338625.

    M: Fine. Right. Umm. I just need to see some ID.

    L: Oh. I have passport. Will that do?

    M: Yes, that’s fine. What’s the number? It should be on the back page.

    L: Yep. Found it. It’s 498276. Do you need to see it?

    M: Yes, I and I need to make a photocopy too.

    L: There you go.

    M: Right, thanks. And lastly, what’s your date of birth, please?

    L: 31st May 1998.

    (Before you hear the rest of the conversation, you will have some time to look at questions 6 to 10 [20 seconds]. Now, listen and answer questions 6 to 10.)

    M: Great. So that’s everything I need for the application form. Now, have you had a chance to look at the different membership options?

    L: Yes, I had a quick look online.

    M: Great. So, which facilities are you interested in using at the leisure centre?

    L: Well, the gym definitely but not the weights room – I think that’s separate. I really just want to use the running machines.

    M: Ok.

    L: Um, also the pool but I don’t need access to the water slides. That’s not really my thing. What else? Let’s see. I might use the sauna and steam room. I’m not sure though. But I’ll tick it anyway.

    M: Fine. If you change your mind you can always let me know later and I’ll update your membership.

    L: Umm, classes – I don’t think the timings suit me, to be honest. Boot Camp is a definite no for now.

    M: Are you sure? It’s really popular.

    L: Maybe when I’m fitter I’ll sign up for that.

    M: Anything else?

    L: Mmm, that’s it, I think.

    M: Ok then. Well, as I said if you change your mind about Boot Camp just let me know. I just need you to sign here on the line. Oh, and I nearly forgot, the membership fee is £45 a month and you can pay by Direct Debit. You get £25 off your first month though, and if you refer a friend you both get a free month’s membership.

    L: Brilliant. Ok, so I’ll just set up a Direct Debit. And do I sign here?

    M: Yes, just there. You can use the gym from today, if you like, but your card won’t be ready until next week. It will take 3 days to process and then it will take 2 or 3 days to get to you by post.

    L: Great. Well, I'll have a look around then.

    M: Fine.
