Mary: Oh ok. Thanks. I'll do that now.

Sharon: Next.

Mary: Oh, hello. I'm Mary. I'm new.

Sharon: So is everyone else  you've come to register have you?

Mary: I think so. I think I need to fill in some forms.


Sharon: Oh yes, lots of them. Here you go... next!

Narrator:She's not very friendly-but it's a good idea to keep in with the administration assistant-she can help you with lots of things.Do you need help now Mary?

Mary: Oh yes I do. Look at all this paper... this one asks for D-O-B and this one says plagiarism declaration.


Narrator: Don't panic. Be polite and ask for help. Say something like... I'm really sorry but I'm not sure what to write, or, could you explain this form to me please, or, I know you're busy but I'd be grateful if you could help me. Give it a go  I'm sure she won't bite your head off.

Mary: Bite my head off?! I hope not. Right... I know you're really busy but I'd be grateful if you could help me. Please?

Sharon: Yes of course dear...this is a 'plagiarism declaration' which says that you won't copy anyone's work...just sign it here.This is a form with your important contact details and next-of-kin... that's the person we'll contact if you get ill or die or something.

Mary: And this?

Sharon: Oh don't forget this one. Fill this in and you'll get a student card  that'll give you discounts on books and food and get you into the student nightclub. You'll need to include a photograph of yourself.

Mary: Oh great. Thanks so much...err?

Sharon: Sharon.


Mary: And I'm Mary. One last thing... could I borrow a pen please?

Narrator: Well done Mary. You're making progress. You can usually get help by using these useful phrases...
