  Listening comprehension 4

  Thank you all for coming to my talk this evening. It’s nice to see so many people in the audience. For those of you who don’t know very much about PS Camping. Let me start by giving you some background information about the company.

  The company started 25 years ago. It actually opened as a retail chain selling camping equipment. And then twenty years ago, it bought a small number of campsites in the UK, and began offering camping holidays. The company grew rapidly and has been providing holidays in continental Europe for the last fifteen years.

  If you book a camping holiday with us, you’ll have a choice of over three hundred sites. In Italy we now have some 64 sites that we either own, or have exclusive use of. France is where we have the majority of sites, and we currently have a project to expand into Switzerland. We also have a number of sites in Northern Spain, particularly in the mountainous region of Picos de Europa. We’ve upgraded all these Spanish sites, and improved them considerably from their original three-star rating.

  We believe our holidays offer superb facilities for the whole family. Parents who want their children to be fully occupied for all or part of the day can take advantage of our children’s activities. These are organized by our well-qualified and enthusiastic staff. Each day kicks off with a sports match, perhaps football, or volleyball, followed by an hour of drama for everyone. This may include singing or dancing, mime or other activities. In the afternoon, there’s a different art activity for each day of the week including a poster competition or model making. What’s more, our sites are truly child-friendly, and, with this in mind, we operate a no-noise rule in the evenings. Children’s evening activities usually finish at 9:30, or occasionally 10, and from 10:30 holiday-makers are expected to be quiet in the areas where there are tents.

  We want nothing to go wrong on a PS Camping holiday, but if it does, we also want all customers to be insured. If you haven’t organized an annual insurance policy of your own you’ll need to take out the low-cost cover we offer and we require that you arrange this when you make your holiday reservation.

  There are many advantages to choosing PS Camping, and to recommending it to others. As a regular customer, you’ll be kept informed of special offers. And you can benefit from ten per cent off their holiday, or book a luxury tent for the price of a standard one. In return, we’ll send you a thank-you present, which you can choose from a list of high-quality items.

  Q16. How many years ago was the company PS Camping established in the UK?

  Q17. What was the company’s business when it opened in the UK?

  Q18. In which of the following countries does the company have the majority of camping sites?

  Q19. There are several kinds of activities which can fully occupy children for all or part of the day. Which of the following is not one of these?

  Q20. Which of the following is an advantage that a regular customer can enjoy from the company?

  【解析】

  本篇听力取材于雅思考试真题,内容是一家名叫PS Camping公司的介绍,包括公司历史,业务范围,各项活动,优惠政策等等。该公司成立于25年前,原本是一家露营装备销售商,后来转向为露营假日活动 组织者,在欧洲大陆业务发展迅速。 该公司能够为客户组织各种活动供全家娱乐,但要求客户投保,最后还提供了给老客户的多项优惠政策。
