Exercise 2 LISTENING 2.15
Sam Hi, Kylie. It’s Sam. Are you going to the activity camp next week?
Kylie Yes, I am. And I need to choose my activities.
Sam Me too. Why don’t we choose the same ones?
Kylie Great idea! Do you fancy playing water polo?
Sam I’d rather not. I’m not very good at swimming. I think hockey would be better.
Kylie I don’t really fancy doing that. I’d prefer to do athletics.
Sam OK. I like athletics too. What about our second activity? Would you like to try climbing?
Kylie I don’t think that’s a good idea. I’m scared of heights! Do you fancy doing judo instead?
Sam OK. Good idea!

Exercise 4 LISTENING 2.16
1 Lily Hello, Jack.
Jack Hi, Lily.
Lily Are you choosing your activities for the camp next week?
Jack Yes, I am. Hey, let’s choose the same activities. Then we can be together.
Lily That’s a good idea. Shall we play table tennis?
Jack I don’t really fancy doing that. I play it all the time at home. I’d rather choose something else. What about athletics?
Lily I’d rather not. Athletics is too tiring!
Jack Do you think so? OK, then. What do you suggest?
Lily Why don’t we play volleyball? That’s really good fun.
Jack You’re right. Volleyball is a good choice. I’m happy with that.
Lily And what about hockey?
Jack I don’t think that’s a very good idea. I don’t really enjoy hockey. I think tennis would be better.
Lily OK, that’s fine with me.
2 Toby Hey, Maya. Let’s choose our activities for the camp.
Maya Good idea, Toby. I really want to do aerobics.
Toby Me too.
Maya Are you sure?
Toby Yes! Why are you so surprised?
Maya Oh, no reason. Now, we need to find a second activity. Do you fancy doing karate?
Toby I’d rather not. I did karate last year and I didn’t really enjoy it. What about dancing?
Maya Is that on the list?
Toby Yes, it is. Look.
Maya Oh, yes. But I don’t really fancy doing that. It’s too similar to aerobics.
Toby I suppose so.
Maya Let’s choose a sport. What about football?
Toby I don’t think that’s a very good idea. I’d prefer to play badminton.
Maya OK. I like badminton. Let’s do that.
1 volleyball and tennis
2 table tennis, athletics and hockey
3 aerobics and badminton
4 karate, dancing and football
2 Is that right?
