Exam Review

Youth Council

CAROLINE:

Good Morning. Youth Council. Caroline speaking.

 

ROGER:

Oh, hello, I’m interested in standing for election to the Youth Council, and I was told to give you a call.

 

CAROLINE:

That’s good. Could I have your name, please?

 

ROGER:

Yes, it’s Roger Brown.

 

CAROLINE:

Thank you. I’m Caroline, the Youth Council administrator. So do you know much about what the Council does, Roger?

 

ROGER:

I’ve talked to Stephanie - l think she’s the chair of the Council.

 

CAROLINE:

That's right.

 

ROGER:

And she told me a lot about it. How it’s a way for young people to discuss local issues, for example, and make suggestions to the town council. That's what made me interested.

 

CAROLINE:

Fine. Well let me take down some of your details. First of all, how old are you. You know the Council is for young people aged from 13 to 18?

 

ROGER:

I’ve just turned 18.

 

CAROLINE:

And where do you live, Roger?

 

ROGER:

Well, that’s a bit complicated. At the moment I’m looking for a flat to rent here, so I’m in a hostel from Monday to Friday. I go back to my parents’ place at the weekend.

 

CAROLINE:

OK so where’s the best place to send you some information about the Council.

 

ROGER:

Oh to my parents’ address, please. That's 17, Buckleigh Street - B-U-C-K-L-E-l-G-H Street, Stamford, Lincolnshire, though you don’t really need the county.

 

CAROLINE:

Oh, I know Stamford - it’s a lovely town. And what’s the postcode?

 

ROGER:

PE9 7QT

 

CAROLINE:

Right, thank you. So are you working here, or are you a student.

 

ROGER:

I started studying at the university a couple of weeks ago, and I've got a part-time job for a few hours a week.

 

CAROLINE:

What do you do?

 

ROGER:

Well, I’ve done several different things. I've just finished a short-term contract as a courier, and now I’m working as a waiter in one of the big hotels.

 

CAROLINE:

Uhuh. That can't leave you much time for studying!

 

ROGER:

Oh, it’s not too bad. I manage to fit it all in.

 

CAROLINE:

What are you studying?

 

ROGER:

My ambition is to go into parliament eventually, so my major subject is politics. That’s partly why I think the Youth Council is important and want to be a part of it.

 

CAROLINE:

And I suppose you’re also taking a minor subject, aren’t you? I know a lot of people study economics too.

 

ROGER:

I chose history. To be honest, I’m not finding it as interesting as I expected!

 

CAROLINE:

OK, so with your studying and your part-time job, do you have time for any other interests or hobbies?

 

ROGER:

Well. I spend quite a lot of time cycling - both around town to get to university and to work, and also long-distance, from here to London, for instance.

 

CAROLINE:

That’s pretty impressive! Anything else?

 

ROGER:

For relaxation I’m also keen on the cinema - I used to go at least once a week, but I can’t manage to go so often now.

 

CAROLINE:

Right. Are you sure you’ll have enough time for the Youth Council?

 

ROGER:

Yes, I’ve worked out that I can afford to reduce my hours at work, and that will make the time.

 

CAROLINE:

So is there any particular aspect of the Youth Council’s work that appeals to you, Roger?

 

ROGER:

Well, my sister is blind, so I’m particularly interested in working with disabled young people, to try and improve the quality of their lives.

 

CAROLINE:

That’s great. Well, the best way to get involved is to be nominated by some people who you know.

 

ROGER:

Right. Can you tell me how to set about organising that?

 

CAROLINE:

You should talk to Jeffrey, our Elections Officer. I can arrange a meeting in the council office with him, if you like.

 

ROGER:

Yes, please.

 

CAROLINE:

He’ll be here next Monday, if that suits you.

 

ROGER:

That’s the 14th, isn’t it?

 

CAROLINE:

Yes.

 

ROGER:

I can manage late afternoon.

 

CAROLINE:

Would you like to suggest a time? He generally leaves around 5.30.

 

ROGER:

Well, would 4.30 be OK? My last class finishes at 4. so I’d have plenty of time to get to your office.

 

CAROLINE:

Right, that’s fine. Oh, and could I have a phone number we can contact you on?

 

ROGER:

Yes, my mobile number’s 07788 136711.

 

CAROLINE:

Thank you. Well, we’ll look forward to seeing you next week.

 

ROGER:

Thanks very much. Goodbye.

 

CAROLINE:

Bye.
