Woman:Good morning. How can I help you?
Man:I understand that the school organises ...umm, trips to different...
Woman:Yes, we run five every month: three duringweekends and two Wednesday afternoon trips.
Man:What sort of places?
Woman:Well, obviously it varies, but always placesof historical interest and also which offer a variety ofshopping, because our students always ask aboutthat... and then we go for ones where we knowthere are guided tours, because this gives a goodfocus for the visit.
Man:Do you travel far?
Woman:Well, we're lucky here, obviously, because we're able to say that all our visits are lessthan three hours drive.
Man:How much do they cost?
Woman:Again it varies between five and fifteen pounds a head, depending on distance.
Man:Ah ha …
Woman:Oh，and we do offer to arrange special trips if，you know, there are more than twelvepeople.
Man:Oh right,I'll keep that in mind. And what are the times normally?
Woman:We try to keep it pretty fixed so that, that students get to know the pattern. Weleave at eight-thirty a.m. and return at six p.m. We figure it's best to keep the day fairly short.
Man:Oh yes. And how do we reserve a place?
Woman:You sign your name on the notice board. Do you know where it is?
Man:Ah ha. I saw it this morning.
Woman:And we do ask that you sign up three days in advance so we know we've got enoughpeople interested to run it, and we can cancel if necessary, with full refund of course.
Man:That's fine, thanks.
Man:And what visits are planned for this term?
Woman:Right, well I'm afraid the schedule hasn'tbeen printed out yet, but we have confirmed thedates and planned the optional extra visits whichyou can also book in advance if you want to.
