Why, stolen money, of course! Half a million dollars! ¿Por qué, robado dinero, por supuesto! Medio millón de dólares!. Earlier in the morning, the couple committed an armed robbery in a bank in the town centre. Temprano en la mañana, la pareja ha cometido un robo a mano armada en un banco en el centro de la ciudad.
  16. 16. Unluckily for him, the man has been tricked by his accomplice and she's run off with the loot. Por desgracia para él, el hombre ha sido engañado por su cómplice y ella está corriendo con el botín. Quick! She's probably hiding, and above all, keeping out of sight. ¡Rápido! Ella probablemente esté escondida, y sobre todo, mantener fuera de la vista. She goes to the airport to leave town. Ella va al aeropuerto para salir de la ciudad. There are two flights to Chicago this afternoon, but she knows too many people there and someone would end up indicating her presence to the police, or worse, to her accomplice. Hay dos vuelos con destino a Chicago esta tarde, pero ella sabe que demasiada gente allí y alguien terminaría lo que indica su presencia a la policía, o peor aún, a su cómplice. Better off leaving the country to launder the money abroad. Mejor dejar el país para blanquear el dinero en el extranjero. In the departure lounge, the woman entrusts the money to her brother, who'll take the suitcase on the plane. En la sala de embarque, la mujer confía el dinero a su hermano, que va a tener la maleta en el avión. She, on the other hand, will cross the border by car where the risk of being recognised is less. Ella, por otro lado, se cruza la frontera en coche, donde el riesgo de ser reconocido es menor. . The man collects his ticket and, boarding card in hand, takes his seat in the plane. El hombre recoge su billete y, a bordo de la tarjeta en la mano, toma su asiento en el avión. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, the policemen investigating the robbery are following up their research. Mientras tanto, en el otro lado de la ciudad, los policías que investigan el robo son el seguimiento de su investigación. They're inspecting the disused warehouse, in which the woman hid for a few minutes, barely after the robbery, and they're trying to retrace her steps. Están inspeccionando el almacén en desuso, en el que la mujer se escondió por unos minutos, apenas después del robo, y que están tratando de volver sobre sus pasos. Let's hope they find some clues that will enable them to recuperate the money and arrest her. Esperemos que encontrar algunas pistas que les permitan recuperar el dinero y arrestar a ella.

The Canadian customs officers have been alerted by an informer of his arrival. Los funcionarios de aduanas canadienses han sido alertados por un conocimiento de su llegada. Are the customs officers going to open the suitcase and find the stolen money? ¿Los funcionarios de aduanas va a abrir la maleta y encontrar el dinero robado? No! They decide to shadow their man and try and find the other accomplices who will be responsible for laundering the money. ¡No! Ellos deciden a la sombra de su hombre y tratar de encontrar los otros cómplices que se encargarán de lavar el dinero. When the time is right, they'll send in the police to arrest them. Cuando sea el momento adecuado, van a enviar a la policía para arrestarlos. In such a situation, the criminals don't have much chance of escaping... En tal situación, los delincuentes no tienen mucha oportunidad de escapar ... After a chase, the policemen end up arresting their man and handcuffing his wrists. It is said that blood ties are often the strongest, but the brother ends up giving his sister away and indicating her hide-out. Después de una persecución, al final la policía a arrestar a su hombre y esposar sus muñecas. Se dice que los lazos de sangre son a menudo más fuerte, pero el hermano acaba dando su hermana de distancia y que indica a su escondite.

Esto es muy a menudo cómo los funcionarios de aduanas logran atrapar a los contrabandistas más grandes: una llamada telefónica anónima, y el criminal se vio desembarcar del avión o en barco.

But most of the statues are authentic. The castle now belongs to the State. SoluciónValidar It is classified as a historical monument. SoluciónValidar Just as you go out, there's a souvenir shop. SoluciónValidar Well, I think I've shown you everything.
  85. 85. How would you fancy a trip around the world in less than five minutes? Brandishing her torch as if at the start of a race, the Statue of Liberty seems to show us the way. There are tourists inside, but you probably cannot see them. Our first stop is in Washington D.C., at the White House, where the President of the USA works and lives. Numerous tourists come and visit every year. Building began in 1792, and since 1800, all her tenants have left a mark of their passage. Despite her great age, the pollution and the tourists' comings and goings, the walls of the White House keep their brilliant whiteness. She really does wear her name well! On the other side of the Atlantic, only a few hours by plane, there's London, the capital of the United Kingdom. The Thames has played an important role in the history of this ancient port. The Palace of Westminster is found on the banks of this river. In 1605, Guy Fawkes dug a tunnel under it to plant a bomb. He was then arrested and executed. If we carry on down the river, we come to Tower Bridge, behind the Tower of London, which is on your left. This is where the beefeaters watch over the royal family's jewels. If they were ever lost, the queen wouldn't have a crown any more.
  86. 86. And can you imagine the queen without a proof of identity? On the other side of the Channel, on the European continent, royal families have almost all disappeared. Among those that remain are the Spanish, Belgians and Dutch. This castle, in the southwest of France, probably belonged to a noble and rich family, which must have suffered a lot in 1789 during the French Revolution. We can say that the people of the period lifted their heads up high in rebellion and the aristocrats lost theirs! France then became the country of human rights. Let's discover the last monument constructed during Napoleon's reign: the Arc de Triomphe. At the foot of this monument rests the unknown soldier, in homage to all the fallen soldiers of World War I, which ravaged Europe at the beginning of the twentieth century. A flame stays permanently alight in memory of them lest we may forget... If we go down the Champs-Elysées, we come to the largest square in Paris: the place de la Concorde. Let's change scenery completely, cross the Rhine and go to Cologne. This town is famous for its gothic style cathedral. It's so big! Let's leave the north for warmer places! For Barcelona, notably, which was the birthplace of the artist Gaudí. His bold and singular creations brighten the town and the tourists love to visit these colourful monuments.
  87. 87. Another sight, not to be missed, is the Plaza de España. Here, during the summer nights, the central fountain lights up and a son et lumière show is put on for you. The impressive speed of the Spanish drivers shouldn't leave you indifferent either! How long did your trip around the world take? Fifty minutes Less than five minutes Fifteen minutes Eighty days When did the building of the White House begin? 1786 1800 1789 1605 1792 What does the President do in the White House?

SoluciónValidar I've had a very busy day and must get some sleep for tomorrow. SoluciónValidar I'll look into it immediately. SoluciónValidar Please do. I don't think I could take any more! I'm at the end of my tether! The Managing Director went away on business for a few days. Since he arrived late at the hotel, he needed to get a bite to eat. Throughout the year the hotel received many prestigious guests. Staff accommodated guests in such a manner that they felt totally at ease. The hotel provided excellent facilities like state-of-the-art technology for business people. In fact, the hotel catered for all the Managing Director's requests
  103. 103. This hotel employee is very smart in his outfit. The hotel where he works must surely have several stars. But the employees’ elegance isn’t everything. Indeed, everything must be perfect in a hotel: the organisation, the service and even the smile. It’s surprising to see the number of people who, satisfied with a place, come back to it every year. Take, for example, a simple breakfast. It seems very ordinary to order a full breakfast and to ask for it to be served to you in bed. But it’s not as easy for the bellboy to bring it to you and not stumble on the stairs. Mind you don’t spill anything! Sitting in her bed, waiting patiently for her coffee, the guest obviously has no idea of all this. Whatever the time and whatever the event, the waiter must always listen and be at the guest’s service. The noisiest place in a hotel, and where people are the busiest, is probably the kitchen. The hotel manager, moreover, is found more often there than in his office. Managing staff is always difficult, especially when it’s a team of chefs who want, at all costs, to accompany the head chef’s dish with a bilberry sauce, when a simple orange sauce, ten times less costly, would be perfectly adequate! They cut, grate, sprinkle, peel, scale fish... What talent! It’s a true culinary art.
  104. 104. The meal is a significant element among those services provided in a hotel and the food must be irreproachable. Obviously, the produce must be fresh and that requires working with a reliable supplier. The fruits and vegetables are imported from the four corners of the globe and it’s necessary to have complete confidence in the company in charge of delivering the goods. It’s impossible to plan for two hundred covers without being certain of getting in time, and on time, fresh produce of an excellent quality. The choice of the supplier depends on the best quality-price ratio and the delivery time. It’s not uncommon to call upon the services of several professionals at the same time. The restaurant opens its doors at the beginning of the evening and it’s not unusual to see customers come in who aren’t staying in the hotel. All the waiters and waitresses are dressed up to the nines: shoes well polished, hair well groomed, ties well done up, skirts well ironed... As usual for the service sector, a restaurant’s success depends enormously on its reputation. The service must be impeccable. When you have a job in the service sector, never forget that the customer is always right! And if he does happen to be wrong, keep it to yourself!
  105. 105. If the customer is wrong... tell your boss. tell everyone. tell him. keep him quiet. don't tell him. walk away. How is the first employee in the video dressed? He is badly dressed. He is inelegant. He is well dressed. He is dressed like royalty. His clothes are too small. His clothes are too large. Why do people return to the same hotel every year? They are very happy with it. They appreciate the coffee. They like the waiter's clothes. They are friends with the manager. They want breakfast in bed. They appreciate the breakfast.
  106. 106. What is meant by 'irreproachable'? It is quite good. It is faulty. It is not bad. It is of average quality. It is without fault. It is extremely bad. What is meant by 'to stumble'? To fall over To walk quickly To climb the stairs To run To jump To walk down the stairs Where are the fruits and vegetables imported from? They are not imported They are grown locally From corner shops From four suppliers From four countries From all over the world What is meant by 'dressed up to the nines'? You got dressed at 9 o'clock
  107. 107. Dressed very badly You get undressed at 9 o'clock Dressed very smartly Dressed like a waiter Dressed like eight other people Which two words have similar meaning? Irreproachable and Impeccable Satisfied and Impeccable Groomed and Ironed Adequate and Reliable Irreproachable and Reliable Groomed and Adequate Which of these words is not a way of preparing food? Peel Scale Spill Grate Sprinkle Cut Which of these statements is untrue? All of the restaurant's customers are from the hotel.
  108. 108. Some of the restaurant's customers are from outside the hotel. The restaurant starts serving at the start of the evening. The waiters' and waitresses' shoes are well polished. The hotel manager is often found in the kitchen. The hotel manager is sometimes in the office. The training course 1 h 29 I'd like you to use your work placement to set up new training programs for H H It must be difficult to keep them up to date with new metal technologies. I'm sure the employees appreciate your commitment. Have you contacted the Training and Enterprise Council? Wherever they work, all our employees need training. But we're not always sure how to offer it to them. How much do you know about training workshops? The TEC course offers are on their website.
  109. 109. We could set up in-company training. I'm told the National Training Organisation can advise us on that. In any case, I'd like you to ask the heads of department what they believe is needed. I'll start with Production. Accounting might be a good place to start. You'll have the results and a plan of action by next week. Hi, I'm the Production director. What can I do for you? Within two months, we'd like to have training workshops running. The question is what I can do for you! We'd like to help train your people. We'd like to start training workshops for the employees on the shop floor. We could do with some training on all this new technology we've been getting. We had record amounts of scrap from our last run of steel bolts! Unfortunately, it's a hundred miles' drive to the nearest training centre. We'll have to plan on work-based training, I suppose. Day release is one possibility to consider.
  110. 110. Funding assistance may be available if we train in-company I think in-house training is probably the best option, as you say. But how will we know if we're up to standard? The NTO will guide us through the process if we need their help. The National Vocational Qualifications can be helpful. Why don't we contact the equipment manufacturer? It's agreed, then: we'll train in-company on the new machines. Let's meet to develop a syllabus next week. How about Friday? I would rather meet later this week if possible. When do you think we can begin the training? So you'd like the TEC to help update our employees' skills. Absolutely. At H H we believe in lifelong learning. Yes, but we'd like to do so within the plant. What company can afford not to? What kind of training do our workers need exactly? They're having trouble adjusting to the new machine.
  111. 111. Above all, they need training on the LD-20. We've invested in new technology, and we need to train them on it. We can do workplace assessments for you if you train in-company, and we'll provide you with a syllabus if you need it as well. Is there anything else I can do before our meeting next week? Everything seems quite all right for the time being. That's all for now, but I'll be in touch! No, I can't think of anything else. So only the marketers will be trained off-site, then? The others will be trained here according to the NTO standards. Yes, they'll be doing a one-week training course in six months' time. That's right! What sort of training will the marketing team be receiving? The training course is about using the Internet as a marketing tool. It's a course on marketing and new media.
  112. 112. They're getting a refresher course on brand management. The company's been waiting to exploit the Internet more. The marketing director is reluctant, though. But are our products right for Internet marketing? That's what the marketing director said. That's a relief. We've had some problems in that area. Well, you're only as good as your brand name. Hopefully the course will help. So far we've been working without the necessary training. Well, let's get to work on planning our work-based training, then! Shall we meet in a few days? I'm not sure I'll have what I need by then.

Hopefully the course will help. So far we've been working without the necessary training. That should give me enough time to work out all the dates. I'm not sure I'll have what I need by then. I'll contact the training companies in the meantime. A n e w s p i n n i n g f r a m e Serving customers 2 h 20 Good evening. I've booked a table for 6. The name, please?

SoluciónValidar Yesterday's applicants will all be hired. SoluciónValidar He had a five-year wait to become company manager.
  124. 124. Congratulations! You've got your certificate of higher education. The time has come to go and look for work. The telephone quickly becomes essential. Having sent several curriculum vitae, you are finally called in for an interview. Try not to seem too tense, otherwise you risk making a bad impression. Luckily for you, your application has been accepted. You're hired! Welcome to the team! Becoming a worker does, however, present a few inconveniences: commuting every day takes a very long time and the traffic jams are never-ending! And that's not counting the taxes you'll have to pay! By the way, what career have you chosen? Are you a waiter? Do you work as a shop assistant? On the market? So no more lie-ins for you! Or have you chosen a career where a uniform is compulsory? Like in the police or the army? Watch out for Sergeant Nit-picker, he doesn't miss a thing! For certain jobs, suits are to be worn. Appearance counts a great deal. Receptionists must always be well dressed, secretaries as well, because they are the first to come into contact with clients. It is important for estate agents to make a good impression, just as it is for car dealers. Does a tie make one look more credible? What judge would listen to a plaintiff wearing jeans and a jumper? None.
  125. 125. No more than the person to be tried would accept the decision of a judge in a T-shirt and tennis shoes. There are some jobs that are done outdoors, like those of a farmer, horticulturist, fisherman or shepherd. One job done from above, in a total lack of oxygen, is that of an astronaut!
