MAN: Now,thinking about the room itself,we have a number of options.You can have a single study bedroom or you can have a shared one.These are both what we call simple rooms.The other alternative is to opt for a single bedsit which actually has more space and better facilities.There's about ￡20 a week difference between them.
WOMAN: Well,actually my grant is quite generous and I think the bedsit sounds the best option.
MAN: Lovely.I'll put you down for that and we'll see what availability is like.Now can I ask some other personal details which we like to have on record?
WOMAN: Yes,of course.
MAN: I wonder if you could let us know what your interests are.This might help us get a closer match for placing you in a particular hall.
WOMAN: Ummm.Well.I love the theatre.
WOMAN: And I enjoy sports,particularly badminton.
MAN: That's worth knowing.Now,what we finish with on the form is really a list from you of what your priorities are in choosing a hall and we'll do our best to take these into account.
WOMAN: Well,the first thing is I'd prefer a hall where there are other mature students,if possible.
MAN: Yes,we do have halls which tend to cater for slightly older students.
WOMAN: Ummm and I'd prefer to be out of town.
MAN: That's actually very good for you because we tend to have more vacancies in out-of -town halls.
MAN: Yes.Angthing else?
WOMAN: Well,I would like somewhere with a shared area,a TV room for example,or something like that.It's a good way to socialise.
MAN: It certainly is.
WOMAN: That's it.
MAN: Now,we just need a contact telephone number for you.
WOMAN: Sure,I'll just find it.It's double 67549.
MAN: Great,so we'll be in contact with you as soon as possible...
