IELTS Listening: Which answer is correct?

Hi guys,

I continue to have students who ask me how to write answer for their IELTS listening test. See the questions below and decide which of the answers is correct.


Hi Mary, I guess you are not home so I’ll leave a message for you. You mentioned popping round for lunch tomorrow. I forget to tell you two things. The first one is to ask you to bring a cake. Make sure it’s free from milk or butter for John. You know he’s lactose intolerant. Also I forget to tell you that there’s a car park behind my house where you can park. But you’ll need to bring some small change because you have to purchase a ticket which will cost about 75p. Also I must warn you that the car park shuts at 9.30pm so make sure you get your car out before that. Well, that’s all. See you tomorrow.


Answer using no more than three words and/or a number.
