Practice --> Part 3: Conversation


Listen to the dialogue. Then read each question and choose the best answer:

Script:
W: I have a question before we call the first applicant in. Will we be done here by noon? I told a client I would meet him to discuss some business over lunch.
M: The last interview starts at 11 o′clock, so we should be done in plenty of time. I have a doctor′s appointment this afternoon, anyway.
W: OK, but if it looks like that 11 o′clock interview is going to go much more than an hour, I′ll need to step out to give my client a call. I might just have to ask him to reschedule.
