Hello, and

0:12

welcome to Study English, IELTS Preparation. I'm Margot Politis.

One of the skills in the listening test is listening for specific information. Here's

0:23

a story about a process - making spectacles - or glasses.

0:29

People like my frames because they're individually made for them, they're uniquely Australian,

0:34

there's an air of exclusivity about it, and they're fun to wear. My name's Roger Henley, I'm a spectacle frame-maker

0:48

in Adelaide. I'm one of three in Australia that produces hand-made spectacle frames.

0:56

My interest in frame-making started in 1978 when, as an apprentice optical mechanic, I

1:02

felt I could make spectacle frames. So in 1987 I actually left my job and started a

1:08

business of making spectacle frames.

1:09

The frame-making process, in brief, involves over 50 steps. I'll just go through a few

1:20

of them. The first step is to mill the front out on a CAD milling machine. It then has

1:30

a heat-sink joint inserted into the frame front. It is then heated in an oven to its

1:40

memory set point, which is 110 degrees C, and then placed in a mould which then gives

1:45

it its curvature or meniscus on the frame.

1:49

There's a lot of information there, and sometimes it's hard to hear the specific thing you're

1:54

listening for. How can you prepare for this? First - listen for the key words in the question.

2:01

Look at this question:

2:02

Who is Roger Henley?

2:06

The key words are 'who' and 'Roger Henley'. So listen for the name Roger Henley in the

2:14

listening passage:

2:17

2:22

2:37

in Adelaide. I'm one of three in Australia that produces hand-made spectacle frames.

2:43

My name's Roger Henley, I'm a spectacle frame-maker in Adelaide. He describes who he is, by saying

2:52

what he does, immediately after he says his name.

2:55

My name's Roger Henley, I'm a spectacle frame-maker in Adelaide. I'm one of three in Australia

3:01

that produces hand-made spectacle frames.

3:04

Look at this question:

3:06

When did he begin manufacturing glasses?
