At last the hotel manger came and stopped the young men. W: Mrs. Barnes came down with serious stomachache after a meal in the hotel restaurant. She had to go to hospital for a couple of days.

started at 6:00 in the morning and stopped at midnight. Sometimes it kept going day and night. Mr. Cook had to end his holiday ahead of time. B) Listen to the following material and fill in each blank with only one word. The material will be read twice. Nobody really knows when the first T-shirt appeared. What is known, however, is that T-shirts have become part of almost everyone’s life since James Dean and Marlon Brando wore them in their movies in the 1950s. They have remained popular for two main reasons. First, they can be used to create an image and, second, they look good on everyone and can be worn on different occasions. In short, they are extremely useful items of clothing. A picture or message printed on a T-shirt can tell a great deal about the person wearing it. For example, if there is a message about saving the planet, it means that the wearer is concerned about the environment. In this way it is very easy to tell whether you have something in common with somebody else, or whether your opinions are worlds apart. Some new T-shirts are often printed with small flowers, or small stones. T-shirts with impressive paintings have also become popular and can be bought on the Internet. This is the end of the listening section.
