(A customer has been arranging with a shipping agent to send a large box overseas.
This is the last part of the conversation.)
A: OK right. Now obviously insurance is an important thing to consider and our companies are able to offer very good rates in a number of different all-inclusive packages.
B: Sorry, could you explain a bit more?
A: Yes, sorry, um. There’s really three rates according to quality of insurance cover – there’s the highest comprehensive cover which is Premium rate, then there’s standard rate and then there’s economy rate. That one will only cover the cost of the contents second hand.
B: Oh I’ve been stung before with economy insurance so I’ll go for the highest.
A: Mh’hm and can I just check would you want home delivery or to a local depot or would you want to pick it up at the nearest port?

Tapescript for IELTS Listening Recording
Two friends, Rachel and Paul, are discussing studying with the Open University.
Rachel has already done a course at the university, but Paul has not. The extract
relating to these questions comes from the last part of the recording.
Paul: The other thing I wanted to ask you was, did you find it hard, studying with the Open University?
Rachel: You mean, because you’re studying on your own, most of the time?
Rachel: Well it took me a while to get used to it. I found I needed to maintain a high level of motivation, because it’s so different from school. There’s no-one saying, ‘Why haven’t you written your assignment yet?' and that sort of thing.
Paul: Oh dear.
Rachel: You’ll learn it, Paul. Another thing was that I got very good at time management because I had to fit time for studying round a full-time job.
Paul: Well I’m hoping to change to working part-time, so that’ll help.
Rachel: What makes it easier is that the degree is made up of modules, so you can take time off between them if you need to. It isn’t like a traditional three-or four-year course, where you’ve got to do the whole thing of it in one go.
Paul: That’s good, because I’d like to spend six months travelling next year.
Rachel: Huh, it’s all right for some. Then even though you’re mostly studying at home, remember you’ve got tutors to help you, and from time to time there are summer schools. They usually last a week. They’re great, because you meet all the other people struggling with the same things as you. I’ve made some really good friends that way.
Paul: Sounds good. So how do I apply?
