Exercise 2. Read the passage carefully and then answer the questions follow IN NO MORE
THAN 10 WORDS:
Women in Britain are better today than they used to be. At the beginning of the 19th
century, women seem to have almost no rights at all. They could not vote, or even sign a
contract. Their marriages were arranged by their parents. They were once kept at home and if
they were allowed to work, they were never given responsible jobs. It is strange to think that, as
far as we know, most women were happy with that situation.
Today the position is quite different. Women now can vote and choose their own
husbands. In 1970, a law was passed to give them an equal share of property in the case of
divorce, and in the same year the Equal Pay Act gave them the right to get equal payment with
men for work of equal value.
Despite these changes, there is no doubt that there are still great differences in status
between men and women. Many employers seem to ignore the Equal Pay Act. It is also more
difficult for a woman to get promotion than a man does.
There is sex distinction in England although it has not been so serious as it was. More and
more women go out to work, earn more money, get high positions in the society, and live
independently. However, there are two great problems to solve. The first problem is men's
attitude. They always think that women are lower in rank and are the weaker sex. We do not
know exactly how long it will take them to change their mind. And the other problem which is
much more difficult is women's attitude. They should be ready to struggle to change their fate.

Tapescript

Shirley: Good afternoon, may I help you?


Mari: Hi, I just saw the sign outside. You said you have some apartments?
Shirley: Oh, umm...oh flats, right. Yes! We have some flats available. Are you looking for some
accommodation?
Mari: I am.
Shirley: Okay, well we’ve got one three bedroom flat up on the 10th floor and we’ve got two
one bedroom flats available as well.
Mari: I’m looking for a one bedroom.
Shirley: Okay. Well, let me tell you a little bit about them. We’ve got a smaller one which has a
dining kitchen area, and a bathroom with a toilet in the bathroom in sort of the ante room area.
Both flats are actually partly-furnished so there is a lounge and a refrigerator, a stove, a
washing machine in them. The smaller apartment actually has a really beautiful view looking
over the bay and the other apartment which is a little bit bigger has a dining lounge area as well
as the kitchen so it’s a little bit more spacious.
Mari: Can you tell me the prices?
Shirley: Yeah, well the one that is looking out over the bay it’s a gorgeous view...
Mari: This is the smaller one?
Shirley: It’s a little little bit smaller, yes, yes. That’s actually $900 a month and the other one is
$800 a month. It’s got a view out over the city skyline.
Mari: Okay. I’m going to need some time to think about it.
Shirley: Okay, of course. Would you like to leave me your contact details or would you like
to get back to me?
Mari: I’ll leave you my contact details but when do you want to know by?
Shirley: Okay, well we’ve had several offers for the one bedroom apartments. They are very sort
of popular in this area being so close to the city so probably the sooner you get back to me, the
better. You can actually contact me by phone from 9 to 5. I’ll give you the number. And after 5
o’clock you can contact me on my mobile.
Mari: Okay, can I have your contact information?
Shirley: Sure, okay. The landline is 02-5789-6122 and my mobile is 090-7861-5551.
Mari: Okay, thank you.
Shirley: Okay, I hope to hear from you. Bye.
Mari: Bye.
