Question No. 20
Today you’re going to try to get your first driver’s license. To help reduce the number of automobile accidents in our city, there are some changes in the qualifications for getting a driver’s license. You now need to get at least 45 points out of 50 to pass the written test on driving laws. This is an increase of 15 points. If you pass that, then you can take the driving test, but you’ll need to get a minimum of 37 instead of 35 points out of 50. You’ll be notified of the results in about 10 days.
In this cabinet you’ll find our small DVD film collection. Let me explain where the different genres are located. If you’re interested in action movies, you’ll find them on the top row. There are so many of them that they take up the entire shelf. The next shelf down contains drama and science fiction. On the shelf below that and most of the next shelf you can find our collection’s specialty, classic films like Gone with the Wind. And the rest of that shelf is comedy. Please enjoy our collection.
Question No. 22
As principal of this school, I’d like to welcome you to Japan. We’ve been really looking forward to your visit.
Your students’ host families and cultural activities are already arranged, but we have some free time for recreational activities. Last year, cricket was introduced to our school, and some of the students have become pretty good at it. But the sport’s not played much in Japan, and no other high school in this area has a cricket team. This would be a good chance to play against students from another school, especially ones from England, where cricket started. Do you think your students would be interested?
Questions No. 23 to 25
Welcome back to our week of programs on Eastern Europe. Yesterday we visited the region’s financial center. Today we are on the campus of one of the oldest universities in this area. As you may know, there were serious political problems here in the 90s. Many famous old buildings on this campus were damaged, and the building in front of us with stained glass windows is an example. You can see the extensive damage from the demonstrations for democracy which went on for months. It was decided to leave some of the windows unrepaired in order to remember an important part of the country’s history.
In addition to recognizing the past, the university is looking to the future. In fact, it’s conducting joint research with other universities. This research looks at the effects on societies of large population shifts within the EU. These universities are creating new sociology and commerce programs to develop closer links among the members of the EU.
Standing here in University Square, we can get a sense of the students’ enthusiasm as they look forward to a brighter future. We can see from our visit here today that the university has already entered a progressive new era.
