  M: Greek Island Holidays, can I help you?


  W: Yes, I hope so. I have a friend who's just come back from Corfu and she's recommended some apartments in Arilas. She thought they might be on your list.


  M: Arilas, Arilas, let me see. Can you give me the names?

  M:Arilas Arilas,让我看看。你能给我的名字吗?

  W: Yes, the first's Rose Garden Apartments. I'd like to go with another friend in the last week of October.


  M: Well, we've got a lovely studio flat available at that time. I'm sure you'd enjoy the entertainment programme there too, with Greek dancing in the restaurant.


  W: And the cost for each of us?


  M: £219.


  W: That sounds very reasonable! I'm just jotting down some notes. Now the second one she mentioned was called Blue Bay.


  M: Blue Bay? Yes, in fact that's every popular and is has some special features.


  W: Really?


  M: The main attraction is the large swimming pool with salt water.


  W: Much healthier, I understand.


  M: That's right. And it isn't far from the beach, either - only 300 metres, and only around half a kilometre to some shops, so you don't have to be too energetic.


  W: Is it much more expensive than the first one?


  M: Let me just check. I think at the time you want to go it's around £260 - no £275 to be exact.

  M:我来检查。我认为你想去约£260 -没有£275。

  W: Right, I've got that. Now there are just two more apartments to ask you about. Um, I can't read my own writing! Something to do with sun... Sunshine, isn't it?


  M: I think you meant the Sunshade Apartments. They're on a mountainside.


  W: Any special features?


  M: Yes, each room has its own sun terrace and there are shared barbecue facilities.


  W: Sounds lovely.


  M: Yes, it's rather well-equipped. It also provides water sports -- it has its own beach. There are facilities for water-skiing.


  W: Any kite-surfing? My friend's quite keen.


  M: Not at the hotel but I'm sure you'll find some in Arilas. There's also satelite TV in the apartments.


  W: And how much is that one?


  M: £490 with two sharing.


  W: You mean £ 245 each?


  M: I'm afraid not! Each person has to pay that amount and there must be at least two in an apartment.


  W: I don't think that would be within our budget, unfortunately. And the last one sounds a bit expensive too-the Grand!


  M: Actually it's quite reasonable. It's an older style house with Greek paintings in every room, and a balcony outside.


  W: Sounds nice. What are the views like?


  M: Well, there are forests all around and they hide a supermarket just down the road, so that's very useful for all your shopping needs. There's a disco in the area too.


  W: And the price?


  M: £319 at that time, but if you leave it till November it goes down by 40%.


  W: Too late, I'm afraid.


  M: Well, why don't I send you a brochure with full details, Ms...?


  W: Nash. But don't worry about that. I'm coming to Upminster soon and I'll call and get one. I just wanted to get an idea first.


  M: Well, that's fine. We've got plenty here when you come.


  W: If you got a minute, could I just check a couple of points about insurance? I got one policy through the post but I'd like to see if yours is better.


  M: Fine. What would you like to know?


  W: Well, the one I've got had benefits and then the maximum amount you can claim. Is that like yours?


  M: Yes, that's how most of them are.


  W: Well, the first thing is cancellation. If the holiday's cancelled on the policy I've got, you can claim £8,000.


  M: We can improve on that, Ms. Nash. For Greek Island holidays, our maximum is £10,000.


  W: That's good-of course our holiday won't even cost £1,000 together~

  W:那是我们假期的课程甚至不会花费£1000 ~

  M: It's still sensible to have good cover. Now, if you go to hospital, we allow £600.


  W: Yes, mine is similar.


  M: And we also allow a relative to travel to your holiday resort.


  W: My policy just says their representative will help you.


  M: You can see there is another difference there. And what happens if you don't get on the plane?


  W: Nothing, as far as I see on this form.


  M: Don't you have missed the departure?


  W: No, I'll just jot it down.


  M: We pay up to £1,000 for that, depending on the reason. And we're particularly generous about loss of personal belongs-up to £3.000, but not more than £500 for a single item.


  W: Then I'd better not take my laptop!


  M: Not unless you insure it separately.


  W: OK-thanks very much for your time-you've been really helpful. Can I get back to you? Your name is?


  M: Ben-Ludlow. That's L-U-D-L-O-W. I'm Assistant Manager here. I'll give you my number. It's 081260 543 216.

  M:Ben-Ludlow。这是L-U-D-L-O-W。我在这里助理经理。我给你我的电话号码。这是081260 543 216。

  W: But didn't I phone 081260 567 294? That's what I've got on the paper.

  W:但没有我电话081260 567 294吗?这是我在纸上。

  M: That's the main switchboard. I've given you my direct line.


  W: Right, thank you...



  W: For the second in our series about locally-run business, we meet Simon Winride, co-founder of the hugely successful Winridge Forest Railway Park. Welcome, Simon. Now, perhaps you can begin by telling us a little bit about how it all started.


  M: Well, during the 1970s, my wife, Liz and I had just acquired 80 acres of sheep-farming land, and we decided to settle down and have children. Pretty soon we had a daughter, Sarah, and a son, Duncan. The place was wonderful for the kids: they particularly love the trees and gradually built up an enormous network of miniature railway tract. I began to develop larger-scale models of locomotives but we don't think any more of it until I went on a trip to a theme park near Birmingham and decided we could do a much better job! So we set up a small one ourselves based on the miniature railway and we opened to the public for just a month that year, 1984 - in July- our driest month - because our children said they don't want our guests to have a miserable, wet visit. I dealt with Park business and Liz carried on with the farm work.

  M:好吧,在1970年代,我的妻子,利兹,我刚刚收购了80英亩的土地牧羊,我们决定安定下来,有孩子。很快,我们有了一个女儿,莎拉,一个儿子,邓肯。很棒的地方给孩子们:他们特别喜欢树木,逐步建立了一个巨大的网络,其中包括微型铁路。我开始开发大规模模型的机车,但我们不认为任何更多,直到我去伯明翰附近的一个主题公园,决定我们可以做得更好!所以我们建立了一个小一个基于微型铁路和我们向公众开放的那一年,一个月1984 - 7月我们干燥的月,因为我们的孩子说,他们不想让我们的客人有一个悲惨的,湿的访问。我处理公园商业和利兹进行农场的工作。

  It soon became clear that we are onto a winner. We began to extend the railway tract and lay it among more interesting landscape by planting trees, which in turn attracted more wildlife, and by making cutting through the rock.


  Nowadays, we're open all year round and we're pleased to say that Winridge is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the area - with 50.000 visitors a year - a million and a half people have been through our doors since we opened.


  All these visitors mean we have had to expand our operation and it's now a truly family concern. I'm near to retirement age so I only concern myself with looking after the mechanical side of things - keeping the trains going. Liz now devotes all her energies to recruiting and supporting the large squadron(一群,一队) of workers, which keep the place running smoothly. We're really pleases that after some years away teaching, Sarah has now returned to the park and makes sure the visitors are kept fed and watered, which keeps her pretty busy as you can imagine. Our son, Duncan, have been a stalwart(中坚分子) of the park for the last ten years, taking over from me in the area of construction - and I'll say a little bit more about that in a moment - and his new wife, Judith, has also joined the team in charge of retail. That's becoming a tremendous growth area for us - a lot of people want to buy souvernirs.


  W: So have you finished your development of the site for the moment?


  M: Not at all! We're constantly looking for ways to offer more to our visitors. The railway remains the central feature and there's now 1.2 kilometres of the line laid but we'd like to lay more. Because of the geology of the area, our greatest problem is digging tunnels. But we're gradually overcoming that. We're also very pleased with a new installation of the Go-Kart arena which is 120 square metres in area. Again the problem is the geology; we had to level the mounds on the track for safety reasons. We wanted to enable 5-12 year olds to use the go-karts. And the main attraction here is the Formula 1 Kart. We've known fights to break out over who gets it! And then finally to our most recent development which is the landscaped....

  M:不!我们不断寻找方法来提供更多的游客。铁路仍中央特性和现在有1.2公里的线路铺设但我们想更多。由于该地区的地质,我们最大的问题是挖隧道。但是我们逐步克服。我们也很高兴与新安装的场景舞台面积120平方米。问题是地质;我们不得不成堆在跑道上出于安全原因。我们想使5 - 12岁的孩子使用时间卡丁车。这里的主要景点是一级方程式赛车。我们已经知道打架打破了谁!最后我们最近开发的景观....


  Tutor: Ah Caroline... come on in. Sit down.


  Caroline: Thanks.


  Tutor: So how is the dissertation planning going?


  Caroline: Well Dr Schulmann, I'm still having a lot of trouble deciding on a title.


  Tutor: Well, that's perfectly normal at this stage. And this is what your tutorials will help you to do.


  Caroline: Right.


  Tutor: What we'll do is jot down some points that might help you in your dissertation. First of all, you have chosen your general topic area, haven't you?


  Caroline: Yes, it's the fishing industry.


  Tutor: Oh, yes, that was one of the areas you mentioned. Now, what aspects of the course are you good at?


  Caroline: Well, I think I'm coping well with the statistics, and I'm never bored by it.


  Tutor: Good. Anything else?


  Caroline: Well, I found computer modeling fascinating - I have no problem following what's being taught, whereas quite a few of my classmates find it difficult.


  Tutor: Well, that's very good. Do you think these might be areas you could bring into your dissertation?


  Caroline: Oh, yes, if possible. It's just that I'm having difficulty thinking how I can do that. You see I feel I don't have sufficient background information.


  Tutor: I see. Well, do you take notes?


  Caroline: I'm very weak at note-taking. My teachers always used to say that.


  Tutor: Well, I think you really need to work on these weaknesses before you go any further.


  Caroline: What do you suggest?


  Tutor: Well, I can go through the possible strategies with you and let you decide where to go from there.


  Caroline: Okay, thanks.


  Tutor: Well, some people find it helpful to organise peer-group discussions- you know, each week a different person studies a different topic and shares it with the group.


  Caroline: Oh right.


  Tutor: It really helps build confidence, you know, having to present something to others.


  Caroline: I can see that.


  Tutor: The drawback is that everyone in the group seems to share the same ideas... they keep being repeated in all the dissertations.


  Caroline: Ok.


  Tutor: You could also try a service called "Student Support". It's designed to give you a structured programme over a number of weeks to develop your skills,


  Caroline: Sounds good.


  Tutor: Yes, unfortunately there are only a few places. But it's worth looking into.


  Caroline: Yes, of course. I know I have got to work on my study skills.


  Tutor: And then there are several study skills books you can consult.


  Caroline: Right.


  Tutor: They'll be a good source of reference but the problem is they are sometimes too general.


  Caroline: Yes, that's what I've found.


  Tutor: Other than that I would strongly advise quite simple ideas like using a card index.


  Caroline: Well, yes, I've never done that before.


  Tutor: It's simple, but it really works because you have to get points down in a small space. Another thing I always advise is don't just take your notes and forget about them. Read everything three times- that'll really fix them in your mind.


  Caroline: Yes, I can see it'd take discipline but...


  Tutor: Well, if you establish good study skills at this stage they'll be with you all your life.


  Caroline: Oh, yes, I completely agree. It's just that I don't seem to be able to discipline myself. I need to talk things over.


  Tutor: Well, we'll be continuing these tutorials of course. Let's arrange next month's now. Let's see, I can see you virtually any time during the week starting 22nd January.


  Caroline: What about the 24th? I'm free in the afternoon.


  Tutor: Sorry, I'm booked then. What about the following day?


  Caroline: Thursday? I can make the morning.


  Tutor: Fine, we'll go for the 25th then.


  Caroline: That's great, thanks.



  Good morning. In the last few lectures I've been talking about the history of domestic building construction. But today I want to begin looking at some contemporary, experimental designs for housing. So, I'm going to start with a house, which is constructed more or less under the ground. And one of the interesting things about this project is that the owners-both professionals but not architects- wanted to be closely involved, so they decided to manage the project themselves. Their chief aim was to create somewhere that was as environmentally-friendly as possible. But at the same time they wanted to live somewhere peaceful- they'd both grown up in the rural area and dislike the urban life.


  So the first thing they did was to look for a site. And they found a disused stone quarry in a beautiful area. The price was relatively low, and they liked the idea of recycling the land, as it were. As it was, the quarry was an ugly blot on the landscape, and it wasn't productive any longer, either.


  They consulted various architects and looked at a number of designs before finally deciding on one. As I've said, it was a design for a sort of underground house, and it was built into the earth itself, with two storeys. The north, east and west sides were set in the earth, and only the sloping, south-facing side was exposed to light. That was made of a double layer of very strong glass. There were also photovoltaic tiles fixed to the top and bottom of this sloping wall. These are tiles that are designed to store energy from the sun. And the walls had a layer of foam around them too, to increase the insulation.


  Now, what is of interest to us about this project is the features which make the building energy-efficient. Sunlight floods in through the glass wall, and to maximise it there lots of mirrors and windows inside the house. That helps to spread the light around. So that's the first thing-light is utilised as fully as possible.


  In addition, the special tiles on the outside convert energy from the sun and generate some of the house's electricity. In fact, and it's possible that in future the house may even generate an electricity surplus, and that the owners will be able to sell some to the national grid.


  As well as that, wherever possible, recycled materials have been used. For example, the floors are made of reclaimed wood. And the owners haven't bought a single item of new furniture- they just kept what whey already had. And the there's the system for dealing with the waste produced in the house. This is dealt with organically-it's purified by being filtered through reed beds which have been planted for that purpose in the garden. So the occupants of the house won't pollute the land or use any damaging chemicals.


  It's true that the actual construction of the house was harmful to the environment, mainly because they had to use massive amounts of concrete-one of the biggest sources of carbon dioxide in manufacturing. And, as you know, this is very damaging to the environment. In total, the house construction has released 70 tons of carbon dioxide into the air. Now that's a frightening thought. However, once the initial 'debt' had been cleared-cost anything- environmentally I mean- because unlike ordinary houses, it is run in a way that is completely environmentally friendly.


  So, eco-housing like this is likely to become much more...
