Pre-listening task

Have you ever heard about volunteers? What can they do? How do they help people? Have you ever been a  volunteer?

Now we are ready to start.

Katie: You are going to work all summer as a volunteer?
Paul: Yes. I t ’s really exciting. I can’ t wait.
Katie: Let me see now, that’ll be no money, no time o ff and no summer. I can only see
Paul: Ha-Ha, how witty you are, very funny. Is it worth even trying to explain to a summer
department store worker such as yourself?
Katie: Steady on brother! OK — tell me about it. I am all ears.
Paul: Did you know there are thousands of people with no computer skills? Think about
that for a moment. What jobs today don’t need computers? And think about our media
surroundings. I t ’s all websites, virtual opportunities, social networking and so on. Then just
imagine you don’t understand any of it. Imagine no prospect ever of getting a job or even....
Katie: Paul — there is no excuse nowadays for anyone not having basic computer skills.
Paul: Really? What about people over 50? They never had computer classes at school
because for ordinary people then, there were no computers. And what about those disadvantaged by dyslexia, or those from tough home environments, or the elderly, or....
Katie: I get the picture. Go on.
Paul: I ’ll be in a training centre, giving one-to-one tuition to people whose lives might
really change for the better. I did one evening a week last term and loved it. Now I have a whole summer.
Katie: Well I will work 7 days a week for most of the summer. And then I am going to the
south of France with James and we’ll have the summer holiday of our lives.
Paul: That’s great Katie. Don’t think I don’t approve or even that I am not a tiny bit
jealous. I am not a saint and actually in a sense, we are both taking the same option.
Katie: What do you mean?
Paul: You, dear sister, and I are both choosing exactly what we want to do this summer and
really, we are making that choice only for ourselves.
Katie: Well — I still think you should get a halo.
