B1 Preliminary Listening Test Part 3 – A Competition
You will hear part of a radio programme talking about a competition.
Radio presenter: Well, that’s about it for this month’s edition of Book Club. We hope you’ve enjoyed hearing our discussion this week. Now it’s time for me to tell you about our super new competition. And I have to say, you won’t believe the prize we’ve got for you this month. Would you believe we’re giving you the chance to win your own computer. And not just a computer – it comes with a colour printer as well. This is a competition you really have to enter, isn’t it? So, what do you need to know? And what do you have to do?
All you have to do is enter our short story competition. It couldn’t be easier. We want you to write a short story up to 1,500 words long. The rules are very simple. In fact, they could hardly be simpler. We want lots of entries. What you have to do is sit down and write a short crime story, using your own ideas – and they can be as strange and wonderful as you like, in fact, the stranger, the better. But, and this is important, everything that happens in your story must be in the future. So, just let your imagination fly away. and start writing, because this could be your lucky month.
Send your entries to me, Joy Jones, at the usual address. Put your name, address, telephone number and, very important this, so don’t forget, your age, at the end of your story. Oh, and I forgot to say, for this competition there’s an age limit. You must be under eighteen when you enter. Make sure you post your story in time to reach me by the 8th of March. So good luck, good writing and good reading until next month.
