  Audio script
  Magda: (talking into phone) So…ok…hmm...yeah! That’s great news!
  Olivia: So? Did you get the job?
  Magda: Yes!!!
  All: Hooray!! Fantastic! Well done!!
  Magda: But...
  Harry4: There’s always a ‘but’...
  Magda: It’s only on a trial basis...just for a month.
  Harry: Ok, that’s pretty normal actually. Most companies do that.
  Olivia: But they are paying you, yes?
  Magda: Oh yes, the salary isn’t bad. It’s not an internship5.
  Harry: I did internships for ages...had to work for a month to get experience – no pay! – and then I never got offered the real job at the end. Like now! I’m doing this work for Johnny’s company – they want me to work at weekends too – Saturdays and Sundays – with no extra money!
  Olivia: That’s terrible!
  Harry: I don’t know what to do...I want to say ‘no’, but I’m afraid I’ll lose the job...
  Olivia: You’ll have to think carefully about it!
  Magda: Or you’ll be trying to do an internship again!!! Only joking! It can be important to do an internship if you want to get experience – things to put on your CV...
  Harry: Yeah, I guess you’re right, but I’m past that stage...I’ve got lots of experience now.
  Magda: I’m really worried though, about my first day, really nervous. I might be terrible!
  Olivia: Don’t worry Magda, you’ll be great. Show them how good you are in the first month and they’ll be offering you more money by the second month!
  Magda: Let’s hope so!
  Harry: What are you going to be doing exactly?
  Magda: Well, it’s a lot of admin work... But I do get a chance to work with the senior partners on some designs.
  Harry: Great...What is it you do again?
  Olivia: Harry! How come you always forget this stuff?
  Magda: Architecture! I’m an architect! I design buildings!
  Harry: Oh yeah, right, of course...
  Sarah: She’s a good one too, Harry – I’ve seen some of her drawings. I keep on telling her that she should go to China – there are lots of opportunities there at the moment.
  Magda: Maybe, one day. That’d be really interesting...How are you, Sarah?
  Sarah: OK...
  Harry: How’s the new flat?
  Sarah: That’s the problem...
  Olivia: Oh no! You’ve only just moved in!
  Magda: I thought the flat was great...
  Sarah: The flat is nice, but the problem is the landlord...
  Olivia: Isn’t that Fadi’s cousin?
  Sarah: Yes, exactly...but he’s really intrusive.
  Magda: Intrusive?
  Sarah: He comes round all the time, wants to know everything about me. I think that if I pay rent, that’s it, I shouldn’t have to tell him anything else.
  Olivia: I see...that’s not on, is it? Have you mentioned it to Fadi?
  Sarah: No, I don’t know how to. He was so kind helping6 me get the place. I don’t want to seem rude.
  Olivia: Would you like me to have a word with him?
  Sarah: Could you? That’d be really great. I’d really appreciate it.
  Olivia: I’ll say something the next time I see him! Promise!
