1 .Hello, Linda speaking.
1 .Oh hi, Linda.
2 .This is Matt Brooks. Alex White gave me your number.
我是Matt Brooks。Alex White给了我你的电话。
3 .He said you'd be able to give me some advice about moving to Banford.
1 .Yes, Alex did mention you.
2 .How can I help?
1 .Well, first of all - which area to live in?
1 .Well, I live in Dalton, which is a really nice suburb
2 .- not too expensive, and there's a nice park.
1 .Sounds good.
2 .Do you know how much it would be to rent a two bedroom flat there?
1 .Yeah, you should be able to get something reasonable for 850 pounds per month.
2 .That's what people typically pay.
3 .You certainly wouldn't want to pay more than 900 pounds.
4 .That doesn't include bills or anything.
1 .No. That sounds alright.
2 .I'll definitely have a look there.
3 .Are the transport links easy from where you live?
1 .Well, I'm very lucky.
2 .I work in the city centre so I don't have to use public transport.
3 .I go by bike.
1 .Oh, I wish I could do that.
2 .Is it safe to cycle around the city?
1 .Yes, it's fine.
2 .And it keeps me fit.
3 .Anyway, driving to work in the city centre would be a nightmare
4 .because there's hardly any parking.
5 .And the traffic during the rush hour can be bad.
1 .I'd be working from home
2 .but I'd have to go to London one or two days a week.
1 .Oh, that's perfect.
2 .Getting to London is no problem.
3 .There's a fast train every 30 minutes which only takes 45 minutes.
1 .That's good.
1 .Yeah, the train service isn't bad during the week.
2 .And they run quite late at night.
3 .It's weekends that are a problem.
4 .They're always doing engineering work
5 .and you have to take a bus to Hadham and pick up the train there, which is really slow.
6 .But other than that, Banford's a great place to live.
7 .I've never been happier.
1 .There are some nice restaurants in the city centre and a brand new cinema
2 .which has only been open a couple of months.
3 .There's a good arts centre too.
1 .Sounds like Banford's got it all.
1 .Yes! We're really lucky.
2 .There are lots of really good aspects to living here.
3 .The schools are good and the hospital here is one of the best in the country.
4 .Everyone l know who's been there's had a positive experience.
5 .Oh, I can give you the name of my dentist too in Bridge Street,
6 .if you're interested.
7 .I've been going to him for years
8 .and I've never had any problems.
1 .Oh, OK. Thanks!
1 .I'll find his number and send it to you.
1 .Thanks, that would be really helpful.
1 .Are you planning to visit Banford soon?
1 .Yes. My wife and I are both coming next week.
2 .We want to make some appointments with estate agents.
1 .I could meet you if you like and show you around.
1 .Are you sure? We'd really appreciate that.
1 .Either a Tuesday or Thursday is good for me, after 5.30.
1 .Thursday's preferable
2 .- Tuesday I need to get home before 6 pm.
1 .OK. Great.
2 .Let me know which train you're catching and I'll meet you in the cafe outside.
3 .You can't miss it.
4 .It's opposite the station and next to the museum.
2 .I'll text you next week then.
3 .Thanks so much for all the advice.
1 .No problem.
2 .I'll see you next week.
