Events at South City International Club - IELTS Listening Part 1 Transcript

Hello, South City International Club. How can I help you?

Oh, good morning. I want to find out about joining the club.

Right. I can help you there. I'm the club secretary and my name's Mary.

Hi, Mary. My name's Jim Hunter. Can you tell me about the events you have there?

Sure. There are several events here, let me give you some details.

First of all, we have a library, you can use all the facilities there, and opening times are from 11 am to 6 pm.

Thank you.

Just to note, there's a deposit of 15 dollars for using the library, which is returnable of course as long as there's no damage. [Q-1]

That sounds fine. What else do you have?

Well, we also have an ice-skating center, which is next to a telephone booth. [Q-2]

The admission fee is 3 dollars. It's only open on Sundays. [Q-3]

Also, we have a special offer for new members - if you come to the center with a guest, then the guest can experience one class for free.

That is really a big attraction for me.

I remember walking past there yesterday, I saw a poster about swimming.

Do you have any swimming classes?

Yes, that is a new class. It starts on the 16th of October. [Q-4]

Right. Is it very expensive?

Well, the joining fee is only 1 dollar - oh no, I'm sorry, it's recently gone up by 2 dollars, so it's now 3 dollars for each person. [Q-5]

And we don't provide any swimming suits here so you need to bring your own.

I see. What about dance lessons? You mentioned that you have classes once a week.

Yes, the dance classes are very popular here.

It's a little expensive, the joining fee is 5 dollars, but that includes free drinks. [Q-6]

We open all day, and you can bring your own water and food.

Well, it's still more expensive than I thought.

I'm a student here and I'm only here for six months.

Ah, then we offer you a great way to learn about Britain.

We usually visit the Grand Hotel, a historical site, but this time we are going to the local museum. [Q-7]

The joining fee is 3 dollars. It is open between 10.30 am and 3.30 pm during weekdays, and on weekends, it's half an hour earlier.

That should be all right. I could come in my free periods.

By the way, I'm quite interested in tennis. I enjoy playing with my friends after work. Do you have tennis events I could join?

No, I'm afraid we don't. Perhaps you are thinking about North City Center.

They've got a lot of events we don't have, and vice versa. But we organize events such as movie watching as long as there are over 30 viewers and we have a lecture every four weeks. [Q-8]

Do you have any yoga classes?

Yes, we do have some yoga lessons, but the timetable is still in discussion.

However, we arrange a Saturday excursion every month. [Q-9]

You can come and check it out.

Great. I heard there would be other outdoor activities, like a tour or something.

Yes, that's right, we will offer a night city tour if you are interested. And as well as that there's a cultural evening event once a month. [Q-10]

That sounds good. But it is a pity that there's no tennis at your club.

Mm, I will pass on your feedback to management. So if you would like to join in the club, you need to fill out a form and pay 108 dollars if you're over 19, and 95 dollars if you're under.

Both will need to be submitted to the club office. They will help you apply for the membership card.

Okay, thanks for that information. I think I have all I need for now.
