Student A
Both pictures show women who look like they are usually very busy people. In picture A the woman is at home in casual clothes, whereas in picture B the woman is at work in business clothes. In picture A, the woman is trying to do three different things at once: carry the laundry basket, talk on the phone and hold the baby. In contrast, the woman in picture B is only doing one thing. Also, the woman in picture b is getting paid for her work, whereas the woman in picture A probably isn’t.

Student B
I find it very tiring when I stay up late at night trying to finish my homework.

Student B
Both pictures show conversations which are taking place outdoors. The conversation in picture A is a face-to-face conversation between two men whereas the conversation in picture B is a telephone conversation between three people. Both the man in picture A and the couple in picture B are concentrating and listening carefully. In picture A, the conversation looks serious. Perhaps they are discussing a problem. In contrast, the conversation in picture B looks cheerful. Perhaps they are on holiday and they are calling home.
The conversation in picture A could end with: “Maybe there’s some way we can sort it out.”

The one in picture B could end with: “We’ll see you all next week!”

Student A
I feel most comfortable discussing problems with my mum because she is a good listener and I trust her advice.

Dear Miss Diamond,
          Thank you for your prompt reply. We are delighted that you are able to perform at our party.
         The date which would be most suitable is 14th June, which is a Friday. We would like to start around 8:00 pm, if that is convenient for you. The venue is the Great Hall on campus, which I am sure you will remember, and we have sold approximately 200 tickets.
        We would appreciate it if you could perform for an hour. If this is not possible, please let me know so I can rearrange the programme. There are also a number of local bands in the programme, but you are top of the bill.
         As to whether there are still some tutors here from when you were a student, I think you may remember Dr Johnson and Mrs Peake. They will be at the party, and are looking forward to meeting you again.
         Please do not hesitate to contact me again if you have any other questions. We are all looking forward to meeting you.
Yours sincerely,
John Duggan
