[00:04.60]Listen to your colleague's voice-mail message.
[00:07.89]Tick the things he tells you about.
[00:10.58]Hello,sorry to miss you.
[00:13.37]So you're going to Melbourne!
[00:16.38]I was there last year and loved it.
[00:19.67]You said you wanted some ideas about what to do.
[00:23.56]Well,I know you like looking at old buildings,
[00:27.66]so you should visit East Melbourne-it's very close to the center
[00:33.04]and there are some good coffee shops there.
[00:36.02]I really enjoyed looking around the area when I was there.
[00:39.84]As for restaurants,
[00:42.24]there are some excellent Greek restaurants-
[00:45.64]did you know Melbourne has the largest population of Greeks
[00:50.44]after Athens and Thessalonika?
[00:53.42]So Greek food is recommended.
[00:56.82]I ate at the Samos Taverna-you could give that a try.
[01:02.20]Another place I really liked was Shakahari--
[01:07.29]it serves vegetarian food and is excellent.
[01:11.08]Even if you like meat,you'll enjoy your meal there.
[01:14.37]As for shopping,
[01:17.35]Daimaru is a big Japanese department store and has lots of interesting things.
[01:23.75]It's worth having a look there and at the shopping complex it's in.
[01:27.95]Finally,if you're staying in the centre,
[01:31.25]you'll probably be able to walk to most places,but
[01:35.06]if you're a bit tired,
[01:38.25]you should take the tram-you get a good chance to see the city
[01:41.04]and it's a really pleasant way of traveling.
[01:44.12]Have a great trip,and I'll see you when you get back.
[01:51.44]Listen to Veronica speaking to a colleague of yours
[01:55.62]and check your answers.
[01:57.81]Listen again and fill in themessage in your book.
[02:09.20]VERONICA:Hello,George. Veronica here.
[02:12.31]GEORGE:Hello, Veronica,how are you?
[02:14.79]VERONICA:Great.I'm looking forward to my trip to Bath.
[02:18.87]GEORGE:Good,we're looking forward to seeing you again.
[02:22.24]VERONICA:I just wanted to check some of the arrangements for the trip with Terry.
[02:27.62] Is he there? GEORGE:Sorry,he's out just now.
[02:31.54] I can leave him a note if you like.
[02:36.63] You're arriving on Friday morning, aren't you?
[02:40.13]VERONICA:Yes,Friday at 10 a.m.
[02:44.34]I'll have a busy week at work in Bath,
[02:48.02] and most of my time is taken up with meetings,
[02:52.33] so I wanted to have the weekend to see the city.
[02:56.12]GEORGE:Do you want us to meet you at the airport?
[03:01.52]I can find my way to Bath by bus from Heathrow.
[03:05.91]GEORGE:Fine.Shall we book you a hotel?
[03:09.99]VERONICA:It's all right,
[03:11.87]I've already booked in at the Royal Hotel.
[03:15.68] I stayed there last time and it was very nice.
[03:19.58]GEORGE:Well,would you like to meet us for dinner on Friday?
[03:23.78] Terry could reserve a table.
[03:26.18]VERONICA:Yes,that would be fine.
[03:28.77]GEORGE:Good.We'll pick you up at the hotel--
[03:32.58] Terry'll leave a message about the time.
[03:35.56]VERONICA:Oh thanks. One other thing--
[03:39.04] could you find out what's on in Bath that weekend?
[03:43.11] I'd like to take a tour and go to a concert or the theatre.
[03:49.90]I'll ask Terry to send you some tourist information today
[03:59.60]Listen and checkyour answers.
