W: Thanks for staying tuned to our programme. Our next item is really interesting. Twins are quite the fashion nowadays—there are books about twins, websites about twins, twins even have their own festivals and clubs. We’ve sent our reporter, Trevor Williams, to America to find out firsthand information about a very special twins place. Trevor, can you hear me?
M: Yes, Karen, loud and clear.
W: And where are you today, Trevor?
M: As you can see, I’m here in the heart of New York City, in an amazing place to eat—Twins Restaurant.
W: Well, then Trevor, what can you tell us about the restaurant?
M: Well, Karen, I spoke to the owners, twins Debbie and Lisa Ganz. They told me that all the waiters and waitresses in their restaurant are identical twins—37 pairs in all—and they always work at the same time, at the same tables.
W: Don’t the customers get confused?
M: That’s part of the fun! And by the way, if one twin is ill, the other one needn’t bother to show up for work. They are only allowed to work in pairs.
W: Hello, can I help you?

W: We charge￡4 a night per student.
M: Oh, well, that’s very good. What does that include exactly?
W: Well, all the equipment is very basic. We have big clean areas, with wooden floors, so there’s lots of space to sleep. No bathrooms or hot water of course! Just cold water for washing.
M: I see—a bit of a shock for the students! Um, and what about food?
W: They do their own cooking. They’ll have to bring sleeping bags and their own food with them.
M: Right, it sounds great! Well, I’ve got 40 students ….
