61 PRACTICE TEST 1 OCCUPATIONAL ENGLISH TEST. PRACTICE TEST 1. LISTENING TEST. This test has three parts. In each part you’ll hear a number of different extracts. At the start of each extract, you’ll hear this sound: ---***---. You’ll have time to read the questions before you hear each extract and you’ll hear each extract ONCE only. Complete your answers as you listen. At the end of the test, you’ll have two minutes to check your answers. Part A. In this part of the test, you’ll hear two different extracts. In each extract, a health professional is talking to a patient. For questions 1 to 24, complete the notes with information you hear. Now, look at the notes for extract one. PAUSE: 5 SECONDS Extract one. Questions 1 to 12. You hear an obstetrician talking to a patient called Melissa Gordon. For questions 1 to 12, complete the notes with a word or short phrase. You now have thirty seconds to look at the notes. PAUSE: 30 SECONDS ---***--- M: So, this first meeting, Mrs Gordon, is mainly a chance for you and I to get to know each other. I’ll ask you about your medical history and this is also an opportunity for you to ask me any questions that you’ve got at this point. F: Sure. M: So, some background. What kind of work do you do? F: I have a job at an engineering company. I’m a computer programmer. I currently do four days a week, but I hope to reduce that to three after my maternity leave. M: Ahh, excellent. So tell me about your medical health? Do you have any conditions I should know about? F: Well err, I have asthma attacks but they don’t happen often. I lost about ten kilos and that’s certainly helped. I have an inhaler but I hardly ever use it. Oh, I should also let you know that I come out in terrible hives if I take penicillin, but not other things - I’m fine if I eat nuts, for example. I have a fairly healthy lifestyle. I’m a vegetarian and I’ve never smoked. M: Good. F: I’m afraid I don’t go to the gym or anything, but I walk to work and err… generally keep active. M: Ahh that’s good. So is this your first pregnancy? F: No, I have a daughter called Ella – she’s three now. M: Ahh…and did everything go smoothly that time? F: There were no major problems during the pregnancy itself. But it took me quite a time to fall pregnant - the first time. After having various tests, I was given some fertility drugs. Ohh what were they called? It’s on the tip of my tongue. Ahm, never mind. It’ll come back to me. This time, though, I didn’t need any help.
62 PRACTICE TEST 1 M: It’s no problem. What about labour last time around?
