Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.
Staff: Hello, Gino's.
Jamie: Hi. Can I book a table for tomorrow night, please?
Staff: How many people is it for?
Staff: And what time would you like?
Jamie: About eight, eight thirty maybe?
Staff: Let's see ... We're pretty busy tomorrow, so I can do half past seven or nine.
Jamie: Oh. OK, then. Half seven, please.
Staff: What name is it?
Staff: J-A- ...?
Staff: OK, so that's a table for four at half past seven tomorrow evening.
Jamie: Great. Thanks! Bye.
Staff: Hello, Gino's.
Jamie: Hi, I called earlier to book a table for four and I was wondering if I can make it for six instead?
Staff: Ah, what name was it?
Jamie: It's Jamie.
Staff: Table for four at half past seven. So you want to change it to 6 o'clock?
Jamie: No, sorry. Can I make it for six people?
Staff: Oh, I see. Sorry! That shouldn't be a problem. I can move you to a bigger table but it will be nearer the kitchen. Is that OK?
Jamie: No problem. Is it possible to change the time as well? Make it a little bit later?
Staff: Ah ... yeah, we can. Is eight OK for you?
Jamie: Perfect, thanks!
Staff: Lovely. See you tomorrow, then.
Jamie: Thanks! Bye!
Staff: Thanks. Ciao!
I have the same ideas as you
There is an incorrect answer in the preparation task. Program says that the correct answer for "half eight" is 8:30.
Actually, "half eight" does mean 8:30. It's the same meaning as "half past eight", but it's more conversational in style.
There is a similar example in the listening. The restaurant staff member says "I can do half past seven", and the caller confirms the time: "Half seven, please."

My favourite kind of restaurant is how served Oaxaca food.
I like fast food.
My favorite type of restaurant is fast food, especially the burgues of "COCHEROS" because it have a delicious flavour, and always I eats this whit soda
I definitely adore the Cambodian restaurant. There are many kinds of soups especially Khmer traditional curry and mixed vegetable soup.
I rarely go to the restaurent, but if I go I would like to eat fast food like sandwish or grilled fishes with salad it is a delicious meal for me :)
I prefer seafood resurants
My favorite kind of restaurant is home made food type restaurants. I like to eat fast food, but if I am going to eat it everyday, I prefer home made food.
