Yes here it is oh seven nine eight seven double four double that's it and how many people is it for just two adults ok any specific price range it's our first wedding anniversary and congratulations thank you so we wanted something nice , but not too expensive. We want to make it something to remember, maybe in the mid-range to really relax, that's only five nights and what kind of hotel we originally thought was a five star, but that might be overpriced , so we looked at four star hotels, some of which we have in our brochure, but the one I would recommend is Hotel Scotland, it's 4 star and I know there are rooms available as I'm staying there made a booking for another customer.

Didn't realize I don't know how I didn't see them I miss them, I've also stayed there myself as we sometimes have to look at the hotels and of all the ones I've visited this was my favorite. Oh, before you listen to the rest of the conversation, have some time to look at questions 5 through 10. now listen and answer questions five through ten how is the hotel it has a courtyard for breakfast it has 50 rooms it is right now refurbished so very stylish it says in the brochure it says on page 63 ah yes i see it's right next to the train station hmm but what appeals to me the most is that the hotel is very convenient for all the water buses and the idea of ​​having a terrace with Having the room is really appealing to me, those are big pluses, it's probably the most central hotel we have You might think it would be A bit noisy as it's in the main traffic area and a touristy spot, but out From experience I can assure you that the hotel is very quiet.

Most rooms face away from the main thoroughfare. Can you tell me what time you want to go? March 17th coming back on the 22nd ok I will check again if there are places available for adults sharing a hotel in Scotland. Yes that is fine and how much is the break including flights there is a special price at the moment because it is low season for five nights let's see it is £716 for a double room and flights which includes airport taxes but none Insurance. No for two adults. That doesn't sound bad at all. What discounts do you have at the moment when you make the booking? before February 17th you get an additional discount of 15 subject to availability.
That's a big saving. Yes, it makes the price very reasonable. Do you need travel insurance? Yes I suppose we'd better have a seven day cover for the two of you it's £17 88 ok would you like to book today I think we should. But can I just ask my wife? Can you hold the booking for me? I can hold them until 1:00 p.m. Ok that's fine just give you a reference for the reservation. Thanks. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is Councilor Norma Boyd and welcome to this exhibition on the development of the old paper mill and gasworks site which has been unused for over a decade . There was pressure on the council to use the land to build a training center and a small business park however we were encouraged by local residents to create an open area for the benefit of the community with much needed space for recreation and i am now pleased to announce that plans for the development of a park to be named park royal and for housing have now been approved.
I am also pleased to announce that we have received sponsorship from local organizations. More detailed development plans are available on the Council's website. Details are in your package. In the meantime I just want you to carry out the plan here on the screen.

A block of 40 studios will be built on the other side of the entrance. There will be some workshops for local businesses. As there will also be another entrance here at the top right that leads into Pear Street here in the middle of the park we have an ornamental lake at the top right with pathways going north to south east and west to A large sports area with two soccer fields and four tennis and volleyball courts is being built at the corner of the various areas of the park right at the entrance to the street. Right here next to the fields on the same side of the path there will now be an outdoor swimming pool in the top left corner a walled flower garden is planned with a rockery and water feature with walkways, seating and plenty of shaded areas for the summer.
A sculpture garden is also planned.

now turn to part four part 4 you listen to a lecture about the effect of architecture on people's mood first you have grab something Time to look at questions 31 through 40.
Now listen carefully and answer questions 31 to 40. My group was doing a project on the importance of architecture in people's lives and whether it has an impact on people's lives in general, which is the main role I played was collecting data to find out how different buildings affect people's mood, i.e. whether ugly buildings make people unhappy and whether beautiful buildings make people unhappy wanted to distribute to the university but we were worried that filling out the questionnaire would be too time consuming so we gave up the idea which i then pitched to several post graduates one of them came up with the simple idea of ​​showing people pictures of different buildings from different epochs and styles, instead of handing out the questionnaire anger and requests, on a scale from one to Giving five how they felt about the pictures, where one was unhappy and five was very happy, also gave people the option not to express their feelings using the scale meant it would be much easier to record people's reactions i decided to follow this advice, so the first step was to collect a large number ofto collect pictures. i used google to print out color images of views of houses and blocks of flats that people live in and different types of buildings that they work in. start with about 30 or 40 and then reduce to 10 images.
Media resources in the Amory Building in the University's Judd Street branch helped me create the final images. I had them enlarged to A4 size and we used color instead of black and white. To make the details in the images clearer we created five sets of images and to protect them during handling we glued the images to hard card and then machined them wrapped in plastic from which we laminated five cards. We aimed at different age groups. We went to a local school where we got permission to interview a group of teenagers between the ages of 11 and 18.
We also asked a sample of the General's audience, including tourists from all over the world, as they left the Tate Modern in London what they thought we want to ask people from different age groups, namely 20 to 40 and 50 and what our group likes the most Project learned was first and foremost the value of teamwork and secondly we found that we needed to appoint a leader to prevent us from pulling in different directions and falling apart so this proved to be an invaluable lesson for all of us, As for the results, which ended up being intriguing for us consisted of 311 respondents i initially thought people would not be interested in participating with the youngest age group their reaction was very mixed it was clear that the youngest group ever had no preference pattern, as they often showed no reactions to the images For the 20- to For 40-year-olds, we found that they tended to score more in the mid-range around three.
They were more likely to rate the images because five people were over 50, and no one in that age group failed to state their reaction, which was for the three groups as a whole was unique. I have to say that around 71 people reported no reaction at all to an image. Our general conclusion is that we need to find out more about why people react the way they do, perhaps by giving them the opportunity to justify their decisions . I want to wrap this up and give my teammates a chance to add anything I forgot or take any questions or suggestions. this is the end of section four. you now have half a minute to check your
