Part III A. Hello, Mighty Maids. Theresa Blanding speaking. B. Yes Ms. Blanding, My name is Tony Dodd, I have a complaint about your service. I used Mighty Maids yesterday, and the woman who cleaned my home -- Nora, is her name -- did not do a very good job. I asked her to scrub the bathroom floors, but when she finished, they looked no cleaner than before she started. I also asked her to clean the oven and do some laundry. She did neither. I'm very disappointed, and I'd like my money back. A. I'm terribly sorry to hear that, Mr. Dodd. Believe me, this is not typical of Mighty Maids service. Unfortunately, I cannot refund your money. However, what I can do is send a different person out tomorrow, who will clean your house this time free of charge. We'd like another chance to prove that yesterday was an aberration. Would that be OK? B. Yes, I suppose. But if the cleaner is not good tomorrow, I will not use your service again, and I'll tell everyone I know to avoid Mighty Maids. 1).

A. This flat-screen TV looks like a pretty good deal. It's on sale for $399. What do you think? B. That's a good price, but we should compare before we buy. I saw an ad where Video Plus promises to match any competitor's offer. And TVs might be cheaper there anyway. I think we ought to look in at least two stores before we get anything. A. Yeah, we could, but when you figure in the cost of time and gas getting to another store, it might end up being cheaper just to buy it here right now. What if we go to Video Plus and it's not any cheaper, but they just match the price? B. Yeah, I see your point, but I'd feel better if we could compare anyway. If the TV is only $300 at the other store, then it's worth the time and gas to go there. How about if I call Video Plus and ask them? A. All right, that's a good idea. While you're doing that, I'm going to check out MP-4s. 1). What are the speakers mainly discussing? A. The price of electronics B. Different TV brands 2). What does the woman want to do? A.

C. In an electronics store D. In a warehouse

A. Ah, Shelly. Back from vacation are you? You look tanned and rested. It's good to see you, actually. While you were gone we ran into a problem with the Martin account. You see, you were away, and Gino was out sick for a week, so we missed our deadline to present the new advertising campaign to Mr. Jeffries. We've rescheduled the presentation for Friday. B. Friday? That's a tight deadline. All right, let's get Gino and meet in the conference room in half an hour. Bring all the design sketches that you've worked up, and have Gino bring all the ad copy he's written. I'll grab the old power point slides and videos of Martin's current commercials. A. Right. Look, I know it's not much time, but I think we'll be OK. I've been working hard on the artwork, and I know that Gino was writing at home even though he was ill. We'll put our noses to the grindstone the next couple of days and everything will pull together. Don't worry, we're going to win this account! 1). What are the speakers mainly discussing? A.

A. All our diamonds are the highest quality, sir. Our manager hand-picks them himself. Your wife is sure to love them! B. They all look pretty, but I'm not sure which kind of ring she'll like. There are so many to choose from! A. Might I suggest shopping by price range, then. If you tell me your budget, I can suggest a smaller range of options, and I'm sure you'll find something to your liking. Also, we offer a full money-back guarantee, so if your wife doesn't like it or wants to exchange, it's no problem. B. Oh OK, that sounds reasonable. Well, let's see. I was hoping to spend no more than $400, though I might be willing to go a little higher if I find a ring that really looks good. 1). What is the relationship between the speakers? A.

A. So in summary Michael, your review is mostly favorable. You met four of your seven incentive goals, which means your bonus will total $3,000. You got high marks for promptness and dedication, and need to improve your business etiquette and time management. Do you have any questions? B. Yes, just a couple. What do you do with my performance review after I review it and sign it? Will you use it next year in deciding on salary increases? A. Those are good questions. Your review will go into your file, which is part of your permanent employment record. It will be considered in determining salary, but it's just one factor among many. We'll also consider your overall performance since you joined the company, and any improvement made following this evaluation. In general, you're doing very nice work.

Part IV (clapping) Our next speaker really needs no introduction. She has been involved in local politics for longer I've been alive, and over the past four decades has become an icon of our city and community. She started by serving eight years on the city council, and then eight years as mayor. After that, she was elected for two terms as our state governor, then two more terms as state representative. As if that weren't enough, she has been president of her children's Parent-Teacher Association three separate times, and now is the volunteer president of our local chapter of Citizens for a Greener America. She has a PhD in public policy from State University, where she serves on the advisory board, and last month received an honorary degree from Harvard. Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in giving a warm welcome to a very special guest: Ms. Lindsey Larson! (loud clapping, cheering) 1). Where is this introduction probably taking place? A.

First I'd like to highlight a couple of points from our research, and then brainstorm ways to broaden our company appeal. According to our website statistics and independent polling, our biggest customers are young adults, particularly young women. Sixty-six percent of all women age 18 to 25 are aware of our brand, compared to only 47 percent of women age 25 to 40. With men, sixty-two percent know our brand in the 18 to 25 demographic, but that falls to 43 percent in the 25 to 40 age range. The trouble is, young adults have less money than older adults. Only about 35 percent of all people over 40 - men and women - have heard of us. Interestingly, that percentage is higher with teenagers: 40 percent of all girls and 39 percent of all boys know our brand. But again, teens don't have money. So, given those numbers, I think our challenge is clear. Now, the question is... 1). Who is most likely listening to this speech? A. Marketing students B. Potential customers 2). What is the main purpose of the speech? A. To propose a solution B. To summarize statistics 3). What will the speaker probably talk about next? A. Independent polling B. Increasing brand awareness C. Young women D. Corporate workers

C. To help identify a problem D. To inspire more effort

C. Women age 18 to 25 D. Statistics for young children

(whirring blades in background) Hello. This is Miguel Lopez with WOMB "Eagle Eye" traffic. Rush hour is in full swing all over the valley, and volumes are heavy on all major thoroughfares. Traffic is gridlocked on Interstate 11 from Maple Street clear to Valley Market Center, where it finally begins to thin out. Interstate 305 isn't much better; pretty much bumper-to-bumper through the six-mile stretch from Belleville to Redland. The only blocking slowdown at this hour is on State Route 10, where a car in the left lane has apparently run out of gas near the Mountain View exit. There is a tow truck on the way to the scene to help out, and we can see some people trying to push the car onto the left shoulder. The only other major bottleneck at this hour is on Westmont Avenue, where the right lane is closed for a couple of miles due to ongoing road improvements. It's better to take Eastlake Way instead. I'm Miguel Lopez for "Eagle Eye" traffic. Now back to you in the studio, Dave. 1). Where is the speaker probably broadcasting from? A. A radio studio B. A television station 2).
