    TOEFL Listening Comprehension Transcript

    Narrator
    Listen to a conversation between a student and his counselor.

    Lisle: Excuse me, Mrs. Morgan?

    Counselor: Oh, hi...uh...Lisle, isn''t it? Come in, Lisle. I haven''t seen you in quite a while, have I? How can I help you?

    L: Well...if you have a few minutes... I need you to help me sort out my credit hours. It''s kind of an, uh, an emergency.

    C: OK, sit down. I''ve got a few minutes right now.

    L: Thanks very much.

    C: So, what''s the problem with your credit hours?

    L: Well...um...I think I may not have the right ones. The ones I need to graduate, I mean.

    C: What''s your major again? Business Management?

    L: Yeah, it''s supposed to be. For Bus Ad, I still need to take Global Economics- EC 303- and, well, I''ve got room for it in my schedule but, erm...303''s got a prerequisite, which I, uh, I haven''t taken. EC 203, Econometrics.

    C: Oh, that''s just great. How did you manage that, Lisle?

    L: Not paying attention. I didn''t notice until now that I needed 303 to graduate, and didn''t notice before that I needed 203 before. Is there anything I can do now to fix this?

    C: Well, I''m not sure. It''s possible that the dean would let you take them concurrently. It''s been done before, in extremis.

    L: Well, that''s what I''m in- extremis. The last term before graduation and I''m stuck. Do you think he would, really?

    C: It''s possible, if your grades are good enough and everything else is in order. Are they? Is it?

    L: Oh, yeah! My GPA''s three point seven. And I''ve got all the other required credits, and then some- I''ve actually taken more electives than I need to.

    C: Hmm. Too many electives and missed a prerequisite. Good work, Lisle.

    L: Yeah, pretty dumb, eh?

    C: OK, well- they''re both offered this term, I hope?

    L: Oh yes. Global Economics is Tuesday-Thursdays at three pm and Econometrics is the same days at eleven in the morning. Those would work fine, except, uh....

    C: Except what?

    L: Except I''ve already signed up for the second half of my statistics course- Stats 202- at eleven.

    C: Is that a required course?

    L: No, but it''s highly recommended for business majors. And I really need that math. Math is my weak point, I''m afraid, and I''m going to use a lot of it if I go into finance like I want to.

    C: Lisle, do you know what, um, Econometrics is?

    L: Sure! Uh... I guess- what? It''s, uh, "measuring economies"- "econo-" plus "-metrics"- isn''t it?

    C: It''s math, Lisle. Statistics. It''s a course in the kinds of statistics used in business, finance, and economics.

    L: Oh!... Oh... so maybe I don''t need Stats 202 then?

    C: That''s right. Bus Ad makes sure you get the necessary math by requiring Econometrics. But- you''ve taken Statistics 201 already?

    L: Yes.

    C: Hmm. Listen- there may be another solution to this. The dean might accept Stats 201-202 in place of Econometrics.

    L: Really? That''d be great!

    C: He might. Anyway, I''m going to have to call his office about this- about both possibilities- right away. Let me just see what they say. If you had a choice, which option would it be?

    L: Uh... well, unless they really want me to take Econometrics, I think it would be easier if I completed the second half of my statistics course. I mean, then I''d have the whole course under my belt. But whatever the dean wants- I''m happy to do whatever it takes to graduate on time.

    C: OK, good. Well, with two options, he may be more amenable to exempting you from the prerequisite. Can you bring me a copy of your transcript later today?

    L: I''ve got one right here, Mrs Morgan. Here you go.

    C: Ah. Mmm. Yes. it does look good, Lisle- three point seven and a good scattering of ''A''s, too! OK. I''ll arrange to see the dean as soon as I can- if not today, then tomorrow morning, I hope. And we''ll try to get this straightened out for you. Stop by tomorrow afternoon about three, will you?

    L: Sure! And thanks. Thank you very much.

    C: OK. And don''t worry too much. The dean can be quite flexible in a good cause. See you tomorrow, then.

    L: Thanks so much, Mrs Morgan. See you tomorrow afternoon at three.
