A Oh no. I can’t find my mobile!
B Well, you had it when we were in the café. You were texting your friend.
A Yes, that’s right. Maybe I left it in there.
B Do you want to go back and see?
A But can you phone me first? Then if my mobile’s in the café, maybe someone will answer it.
B OK. Hey, I can hear it. It must be in your bag somewhere.
A No, it’s in my jacket pocket.
A I’m starving. What time did you ask them to come?
B I said to come at eight o’clock for drinks, and then dinner at 8.30.
A Well, it’s 8.15 now.
B Yes, they should be here any minute. They’re usually very punctual.
A Ah – that must be them … Who was it?
B Somebody collecting money for charity. Honestly, I really think people should phone when they’re going to be late. It’s very inconsiderate. It’s nearly twenty past now.
A No! Is that you? It doesn’t look anything like you! I didn’t know you used to have long hair!
B Well, this passport is nearly ten years old. Which reminds me, I’m going to have to renew it soon.
A Well, you definitely need a new photo. You look really awful.
B OK, let’s see yours then.
A No, you can’t see it. I hate showing people my passport photo.
B Come on! You’ve seen mine. That’s not bad. It’s a lot better than mine. In fact, I think I prefer your hair as it was then.
A So where did you meet him?
B At work. He’s one of the designers.
A And what’s he like?
B He’s funny, intelligent…
A Yes, but what does he look like?
B Just like Pierce Brosnan, tall, dark, and handsome – no, I’m joking. He’s got short dark hair and he’s not very tall. But I think he’s really good-looking.
A What happened? How did it go?
B No comment.
A Not again. What did you do this time?
B Nothing. I mean nothing wrong. It was really unfair. Just because I was going a tiny bit fast in the High Street.
A Oh well. You’ll just have to take it again. Third time lucky.
B. Listen and complete the form with the missing information.

A Hello, sir down. I’m the secretary and you are…?
A And your surname is?
B Gatti. G-A-double T-I.
A Are you from Italy?
B No, my grandparents were Italian but I’m Argentinian. But people always think I must be Italian because of my name.
A Oh, sorry. And what course were you thinking of doing?
B I’d like to do the Advanced course. I did an Upper Intermediate course in Buenos Aires last year so I think I’ll be able to do an Advanced course here.
A Well, you’ll have to do a level test first. You might find the Advanced course a bit difficult. Is this your first time in Britain?
B Yes, but I’ve been to the USA last year.
A I went to the USA last year, you mean. You see, maybe you’re not quite ready for the Advanced after all. Now, the level test takes one hour.
