Section 1 is a conversation between a housing officer and Mary.

Housing Officer: that’s about right. But it won’t be very big. Would a bedsitter be okay?

Mary: A bedsitter?

Housing Officer: More British English for you. It’s a single room with cooking facilities. Some are quite nice.

Mary: That will be okay. But I don’t want to share a bathroom and it must be clean, bright and not by a noisy main road.

Housing Officer: Okay, but you’ve come a bit late . With only 4 days to go before the term starts, we’ve only got shared accommodation on our files at the moment. But don’t worry, we’ll do our best.

Mary: Oh, I forgot. Does the rent here include utilities?

Housing Officer: Usually no. You’d have to pay for the gas, electricity and water yourself.

Mary: What about a deposit?

Housing Officer: Most landlords want 3 months in advance which is also a security deposit and make sure you read the rental contract carefully, especially the small print.

Mary: Thanks, I’ll do that. Anything else you need to know.

Housing Officer: Not at the moment. Make sure you let me know your mobile phone number.

Mary: Will do. Anyway, I must go now. I’m meeting some friends in the cafeteria.

Housing Officer: Okay. Will be in touch. Bye for now.

Mary: See you.
