Listening Script Vocabulary
(Section 1: You will hear a conversation between a festival manager and two students. The festival manager is collecting feedback from the two students. First, you will have some time to look at questions 1 to 5 [20 seconds]. Now, listen carefully and answer questions 1 to 5.)
F = Festival Manager
A = Amy
J = Jack
F: Hello, Amy. Please come in. Thanks for coming. How are you doing?
A: I'm OK, thanks.
F: Hi Jack. How are you?
J: I'm fine, too.
F: I'm glad to hear that. Now, as I explained earlier, I'm the Music Festival Manager and I'm collecting feedback from visitors to find out a bit about their experience here during the festival period and hear any suggestions for improvements. It would be really helpful if you could answer a few questions about your experiences at the festival.
J: Yes, of course.
F: Great. So, Amy let's start with you. You've been here for 2 days now. Can you tell me about your impression of the festival when you first arrived?
A: Hmm, well I've never been to a music festival before, but I thought it was amazing!
F: That's good to hear. Where are you staying?
A: In a tent. I brought my own.
F: And did you bring equipment for cooking, too?
A: No, I didn't like the idea of cooking on a campsite, so I've been eating at the food stalls and it's worked out fine. It's good value.
F: I see. So, you've eaten all your meals there?
A: Pretty much. The staff know my face now and get my usual order ready when they see me coming. They're so friendly.
F: Oh, I forgot to ask which zone you're staying in.
A: I'm in the Red Zone. I'm pretty happy there. The facilities are new. The only thing is bathrooms are shared with the Blue Zone, so they get very crowded.
F: I see. And is there anything you'd like to suggest that would improve the campsite?
A: On the whole, I think it's perfect and I'd come again, but it needs more showers.
F: Mmm, I see. So, more showers. Got it. I can see that would be helpful. Thanks for your time, Amy. I'll turn to you now, Jack…
(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.)
F: Hi Jack. You've only been here for 1 day so far. Tell me, what did you think of the camp when you first got here?
J: I really liked it. It's such a lovely location.
F: And is your accommodation OK?
J: Yeah, it's fine. I'm staying in a hut, but I hired a sleeping bag here at the festival.
F: Right, I see.
J: Yeah, it's not very warm, though. Next time I'll bring my own.
F: Mmm. And which zone are you in, Jack?
J: I'm in Green. I really like it. It's right next to the food stalls so it's very handy for someone like me who is always hungry.
F: I see! And do you have any suggestions for improvements?
J: Mmm, I'm pretty happy with everything. I think it would be a good idea to have more food choices, though. I'm vegetarian and there's not a lot of choices for me.
F: OK. So, more food choices. Right. Well, I'll check to see if there's something we can do about that for next year. Thank you both for sharing your opinions.
