Let’s listen to the recording again and fill in blanks below
PETER: Hey Jim, it’s Peter.
JIM: Oh hey Peter. What’s up?
PETER: I thought I’d call so we could 1 out the details for next year’s lease.
JIM: That’s a good idea. Did we ever decide on how to 2 the total rent?
PETER: Well, I was thinking since my room is bigger I 3 should pay a little more, so I could pay £110 and you could pay £80. Does that sound okay?
JIM: Considering that my old 4 cost me £100 for a smaller room, I’m definitely alright with that! Hey, I was looking at a map of the area, and can’t seem to find a bus 5 near it. Do you know where we would 6 the bus?
PETER: Well, the bus is actually pretty far from us, but we have that 7 that we can park our cars in.
JIM: Wow, that’s great! Convenient parking is hard to find, so we’re lucky we have that. Okay, so we have a 8 lot of things we’ll need to buy when we move in-how do you want to split that up?
PETER: I was wondering – do you still work at the 9 ?
JIM: Yep, every Tuesday and Saturday.
PETER: Would you be able to buy things from there if I send you a 10 list?
JIM: Sure, I can do that.
PETER: Great. Then I can take care of 11 else we need that you wouldn’t get at a supermarket. If you want, I’ll pick you up from work that day and we can go to the apartment together.
JIM: That would be 12 , thanks.
PETER: No problem – that way we can split the cost of 13 .
JIM: Works for me. It’s so expensive these days, isn’t it?
PETER: It’s downright 14 .
JIM: So let’s figure out what 15 we need. Do we have a 16 ?
PETER: Yes, the landlord’s providing that for us. Hey, do you still have that space 17 though? We need one for the kitchen since it’s not 18 to the central heating.
JIM: Oh, right, I’ll bring that. Anything else?
PETER: Well, I have some dining room and living room 19 I can bring, so that should take care of most of the big stuff. You know what we do need though? Could you bring a 20 ?
JIM: I actually don’t have one. It doesn’t come with the microwave?
PETER: No, the landlord is only 21 the microwave. It would really help if you could bring one.
JIM: Okay, I’ll pick one up at the store. You know, I also have this cool 22 rotary phone that would be a cool 23 to the apartment. Sort of as 24 and 25 .
PETER: Oh cool! The only thing is, we’d have to put it in the kitchen, unless you want it in your room.
JIM: Why not put it in the living room?
PETER: The living room is too loud to have a phone 26 . The noise sort of 27 , so if one person is trying to watch TV or have friends over the person on the phone won’t be able to hear.
JIM: Hm, okay, well I guess kitchen it is then. Any other big things we need? That 28 like everything.
PETER: That’s all I can think of. And of course, move-in is –
JIM: June 1st. I can’t 29 . We’ll be able to watch the big game in our new apartment – it’s going to be awesome!
PETER: Yeah, we can move in in the morning and then Friday night we can sit back and cheer on Liverpool.
JIM: I have an exam in the morning, but will be done around 11 a.m. and can move in after. Wait…Liverpool? You’re joking, right? I thought you were a Manchester United 30 ?
PETER: MAN U? No way! Liverpool all the way!
JIM: Oh no. I don’t know if I can live with a Liverpool fan…
