IELTS Listening Multiple Choice Questions | Example 3
|Jason: Hi Laurel, it’s Jason. How are you?
Laurel: Jason! So glad you called. I’m fine. You must have got my message in your answerphone. I wanted to know if you’re free tomorrow to go to the opening of Gaudi’s exhibition.
Jason: Yes, I heard about it and thought of you straight away.
Laurel: So you’re free tomorrow.
Jason: Yes, what time do you want to go?
Laurel: Well, I have a class at college in the morning until 11:15. Wait, no 11:30. So anytime after then.
Jason: I have a lecture until about 12:15. Well, that works perfectly. Do you want me to come to pick you up?
Laurel: No, you’re much closer to the gallery than I am.
Jason: Which Gallery, is it?
Laurel: The Tate, which is really good because I can get there pretty easily by tube.
Jason: All right. Okay. Where do you want to meet and at what time?
Laurel: If I leave when I finish my class, I can probably make the 11:55 tube. That should get me into Central London in about 25 minutes.
Jason: I can come to the tube to meet you by 12:30.
Laurel: It’s probably easier to meet at the Tate. The tube is pretty quiet at that time. Not the usual rash of people, so I should be okay. And they’ve installed a new device in the lift for wheelchairs so I can get to the street without having to wait for long. Do you remember the old lift?
Jason: Yes. It was horrible. It made that loud clanking noise and the smell like anyone pass out.
Laurel: The new lift is quicker, and the wheels of the chair lock into a safety system that allows you and whoever else is in there with you more room. It’s a lot quicker.
