speaking I’m so sorry that I made such an early phone call
and I’m calling to ask a few questions about your most recent vacation could I
have five minutes of your time? Sure thing. Great thanks now I see here
that you visited Melbourne was this your first visit to Melbourne? No I have
actually been there twice before. I see now what would you say was your favorite
part about Melbourne? Well I did like seeing the exotic wildlife and there are
great sights to see but I have to say I was most impressed by the amazing
weather yeah the weather is amazing which of the site’s listed as part of
our official tour did you see and of those which was your favorite first I
saw the theatre which was beautifully designed it was not nearly as cold as
the Town Hall though the building is a huge part of Melbourne’s history
definitely my favourite I saw the aquarium too but wasn’t too
impressed I see yes people often have great reviews of Town Hall now I would
like to ask you about your dining experience did you enjoy the food there
absolutely I loved it I’m glad to hear it could you tell me a little bit about
what you most enjoyed about the food being such an international city I love
the variety I could find any type of food I wanted whether I wanted seafood
burgers or anything else you name it and they had it no I flew I thought about going by train
but in the interest of time I decided to go by plane before you hear the rest of the
conversation you have some time to look at questions six to ten you now listen and answer question six to
ten and would you mind telling me whether
you are under 20 between the ages of 20 and 40 or older than 40 it would be nice
if I was still under 20 my vacation probably would have been quite different
actually though I just turned 40 one last week no way I would love to have a
budget that high I’m more in the mid-range income level
I wasn’t always though I spent much of my life in an low-income household my
next question of income level and what was the purpose of this visit I had to
go there on business a lot before and decided I would go there for tourism
this time I see and what is your occupation I am mainly a computer
programmer I also write for a Travel Magazine on the side which is why I
visited Melbourne before but it’s not my main source of income I see wow it
sounds like you work a lot yes I am very busy which is exactly why I took a nice
week-long vacation to Melbourne I completely agree would you care to
comment on your accommodation my hotel was a good value staying in the city can
get really expensive so it was nice to find such a good price for the location
and quality I’m glad I didn’t end up in some cheap motel in the middle of
nowhere well thank you for taking part in our survey and I’m glad you enjoyed
your vacation no problem take care that is the end of section one you now
have half a minute to check your answers you now turn to section two
