You will hear a university administrator telling a group of new students about the central campus buildings and the facilities they provide.
First, you have some time to look at questions 11 to 16. Now listen and answer questions 11 to 16.
Welcome, everyone, to the Brandon complex, the geographical and, we could say, spiritual heart of this university. This is basically where everyone eats too, as you can see by looking around. There are many different cuisines here: Chinese, Indian, and Middle-Eastern, plus the usual fare of a local type, all in that corner over there.
We have many shops here too, but the biggest is Wilsons, right there, providing clothing and hardware. That’s next to all the restaurants. Now, on the opposite side of Wilsons we have three shops. The one in the corner there, closest to the restaurants, is for DVDs. Yes, the DVDs are cheap and affordable, and you can also rent DVD players as well.
Moving on, in the corner directly opposite Wilsons is the Student Union Office. Incidentally, you are all encouraged to join the student union, as a student union card gives you many benefits, including discounts on basically everything you can buy here at the Brandon complex.
Outside this complex, on the other side of the road, you can just see it from here, in fact is a building that we call by the rather unusual name, the H-Building. Next to this, on the other side of some trees, along the main road, is the Engineering Institute, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the Brandon complex.
One last thing is that just outside this door, near us here, you can see a grassy oval patch. Well, that’s the playing field for what we simply call the Fitness Room, which is alongside. So, you can put on some calories here at the restaurants, and then burn them off at the Fitness Room afterwards.
Oh. I forgot to mention this shop right here, in the middle, beside the Student Union. It’s the bookshop, and as you can see, it’s always busy, always popular. You can buy newspapers, magazines, and stationery there, plus a few clothing items as well, just as you can at Wilsons. Why don’t you go and take a look right now?
Before you hear the rest of the talk, you have some time to look at questions 17 to 20.
