Transcript: 

Student: Yes, the A level entrance requirement is BCC, right. 

Woman: Yes. It’s on average, our students have three Bs. 

Student: Are there any restrictions on the subjects that I take at A level?

Woman:  No, but we find that students studying politics, economics, history, geography, or languages tend to find their first year easier. A background in at least two or three of those subjects is advantageous.

Student:  I see. I’m not studying politics or languages, but I am taking the other three at A level. Our language is an important part of the course. You see, I’m not very good at them. 

Woman: Languages are not a compulsory part of the course. They’re optional each year. However, because students spend a year abroad, we strongly recommend that students take one for at least a year beforehand. However, there is a language lab that students are free to use during the day regardless of the subjects they’re taking.

Student: Which languages are offered?

Woman:  We have five on offer. Vietnamese, Burmese, Thai, Indonesian, and Tagalog. They can be taken in the first, second, and fourth years. Students are expected to learn the basics of the language spoken wherever they’re spending their year abroad during the third year.

Student: I see. Can I spend my year abroad in any country in the region I choose? 

Woman: Yes, as long as you can satisfy your tutors, that it will benefit your studies. This year most students have gone to Vietnam, Thailand or the Philippines. Fewer have gone to Indonesia, Burma, Malaysia, Laos or Cambodia. None went to Singapore or Brunei. 

Student: What do students generally do during their year abroad?

Woman:  The vast majority help on aid projects, especially helping with a water supply and sanitation in rural areas. Others get involved in teaching English or in business, particularly the logistics side of things. A small minority get jobs translating or checking translations. That’s quite well paid, but your language skills have to be up to scratch.

Explanation

For the first question, we understand from the conversation that the students must have a background in at least two or three of the subjects like politics, economics, history, geography, or language to take A level which would be advantageous for them. So, the answer is Politics or history. (Note: Students can write any of the 4 four subjects in the sentence). 

For the second question, we learned from the conversation that the student had not studied politics or language earlier. So, the answer is Politics or language. 

For the third question, we understand from the conversation that the students are free to use a language lab during the day, regardless of the subjects they’re taking. So, the answer is language lab. 

For the fourth question, we understand from the conversation that the university offers the students five languages, including Vietnamese, Burmese, Thai, Tagalog, and Indonesian, during the first, second, and fourth years. So, the answer is five languages. 

For the fifth question, we understand from the conversation that the students who go abroad do various jobs. One of which is translating jobs or checking translations where the students get paid well. So, the answer is translating jobs.
