Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.

Transcript

Hello, everyone. Hello! It's nice to see you all here. Welcome to British Life and Language. I am your teacher. My name is Lindsay Black. That's L-I-N-D-S-A-Y Black. Before we begin, some information about the class.

Our class is in room 13, on the first floor. When you go upstairs, turn left to find the room. Again, that's room 13.

We have class twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday. Our class begins at 4.30 p.m. and lasts 90 minutes, so we finish at 6 p.m. That's 4.30 to 6. Please arrive on time, OK?

Also, I have an office hour if you have questions. I'm in office 7B on the second floor. My office hour is Friday at 6 p.m. So, if you have any questions or problems or want to talk to me, it's Friday at 6 p.m. in office 7B.

We begin next week, on March the 13th. That's Monday, March the 13th. The course ends on May the 20th. May the 20th is the last day.

I think that's all ... Oh, one more thing. For this course you need the book. Here it is: British Life and Language Level 1 Student's Book. So, please get a copy of the book. I don't want to see any photocopies of the book, thank you! Remember, it's level 1 student's book. Don't buy the teacher's book.

I think that's all, everyone. I look forward to working with you. See you next Monday!

Hello sararoshan,

A copy of the book means simply the book. The shop might have five or six copies of a book on its shelves. We use copy in this way because once (before the printing press was invented) books were literally hand-made copies of an original.

A photocopy of the book means a copy made page by page on a photocopying machine. Countries have laws limiting how many pages can be photocopied from a book and for what purposes.

Hello Fatemeh.Najafzadeh

Thanks for your contribution! I just wanted to explain that we removed the name of the school where you study because we ask our users not to include too much personal information in their comments. This is for your protection, and you can see all of our guidelines in the House rules.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

All the best
