Transcripts 

Harry: Hi Andrea, how are you feeling? Now that exams are over. 

Andrea: It’s fantastic to have finished. Isn’t it? And to sleep in, every morning? What about you? 

Harry: Well, I’ve been catching up on sleep too. But I’ve got a lot to do before I leave for England. Perhaps you could give me some advice. I’ve got a lot of things I can’t possibly take back with me, but I don’t know what to do with them. 

Andrea: Well, it depends on what sort of things they are and whether you’re thinking of giving them away or selling them.

Harry:  Well, almost everything. Furniture, the fridge and other kitchen stuff that I bought from the previous tenant. But the new people have already got what they need. So they’re not interested in buying stuff from me. I can’t afford to give it away, but I’m not sure how to sell it all. Oh, and there are some clothes and books as well. 

Andrea: Why can’t you take them? 

Harry: The books are really heavy. It’s so expensive if you exceed the airline baggage allowance and the clothes just won’t all fit in my suitcase. It’s amazing how much stuff I’ve accumulated since I’ve been here. Anyway, I don’t think I’ll need as many summer clothes in England as I have here, in Australia.

Andrea:  I see. Well, there are several alternatives. First of all, you could put up notices around the university about the books. You know, on the notice boards in the student union building and in the economics department. Anywhere, second and third-year students will see them. People are always keen to buy cheap textbooks. 

Harry: Okay. What should I say on the notices? 

Andrea: Just put the titles, authors and price you want, your name of course and maybe put your phone number on those little tear-off tags. 

Harry: That’s a good idea. And what about the furniture? 

Andrea: You could try doing the same thing, but usually students are away from all summer. So they don’t want to buy furniture now. Another place to try might be a second-hand shop. Someone from the shop will usually come around and give you a free quote, and then you can decide. But you don’t usually get much money for that sort of stuff.
