    TOEFL Listening Comprehension Transcript

    Narrator
    Listen to a conversation in a campus cafeteria.

    Alf: Will you pay?

    Betty: Yeah.

    A: I''ll get the trays, then.

    B: OK. Thanks.

    A: Here you are. Ladies first.

    B: Ah. Mmm. Lessee...what''ve they got for salads? Caesar...spinach...garden....

    A: What''s the difference? They''re all mostly lettuce anyway.

    B: Maybe, but I like... croutons.. Caesar''s for me.... Oh, hand me some, uh, oil-and-vinegar, will you?

    A: Here. Hmm... And the lettuce looks wilted. Fruit for me, I guess.

    B: Grapes? I thought you didn''t like them.

    A: I don''t like the green ones, that''s all.

    B: Oh.

    A: And lessee.... Today''s entrees are- Salisbury steak...buffalo wings...filet of sole...and uh, veal cutlets. Hmm. I guess I''ll have fish again.

    B: Why? Low cholesterol?

    A: No, it just looks better than the rest. Like it might be edible.

    B: (Laughs) I see. (To the server) Give me the veal please, with, uh, mashed potatoes and, um, string beans, I guess.

    A: Did you finish your homework?

    B: For Art History? Sort of. I''ve got my talk down, I think. But I''ve still got to make copies of one of his paintings for the class. I thought I''d do that right after lunch- it won''t take a minute.

    A: Who''ve you got again?

    B: Turner. I found a really great print of his- "Landscape with Walton Bridges" it''s called. (To the server) Oh, thank you.

    A: (To the server) And I''ll have the sole. And fries, and, uh, succotash. (To Betty) Are you going to make color copies? They''re not cheap.

    B: Yeah, but they''re worth it. "Walton Bridges" is really fantastic. I''ll show you when we sit down.

    A: OK. (To the server) Oh. Thanks.

    B: Lessee...silverware....

    A: Yeah...mm...napkin? Here.

    B: Oh, thanks, yeah. And, um... iced tea for me.

    A: Mm...and me, too. Hmm. All right. OK, let''s find a table!

    B: Um. Oh- how about over there, by the window?

    A: Yes, that''s good. I need some table room.

    B: What for?

    A: Uh, well... I''ve still got some organizing to do. Same class.

    B: Ah. (They sit down to eat) Who are you talking on?

    A: Dali. Chow down!

    B: Eh?

    A: Salvador Dali. You know, the surrealist. The guy with the moustache.

    B: (laughs) Oh, yeah! The guy with the moustache. Do you think he was crazy?

    A: Crazy like a fox, maybe. He made a lot of money later on his career, cranking out trash for the most part. He put on a real, um, show, though, didn''t he?

    B: (laughs) Sure did.

    A: But I really admire his imagination- some really wild stuff, those melted clocks and hollow beasts. Very evocative images. And actually, he did a lot of research. Do you know the story about his Corpus Hypercubus?

    B: His what?

    A: It''s a cubist painting of the Crucifixion- you know, of Christ on the Cross.

    B: No, what''s the story?

    A: Well, you''ll have to wait for class- I''m still working on it.

    B: Aw, c''mon!

    A: No, I can''t, really. It''s about the mathematics he used, but I''ve gotta tell it right. And I gotta get that together right after lunch! Can I see your Turner print, though?

    B: Oh. Yes, sure. I''ve got it right, um...here.

    A: Wow.

    B: Isn''t that great? Look at that light!

    A: It''s so Italianate- the pastoral atmosphere is so thick you could cut it with a knife! Turner''s so modern, isn''t he? All colour and mood, and almost no form, except for these wispy trees here. Truly amazing! There''s every imaginable shade of gold in there, isn''t there?

    B: Can you believe this was painted before the middle of the 19th century?

    A: Really, eh? Are you going to eat the rest of that salad?

    B: No, you can have it. Here. Are you going to stay here and finish your presentation?

    A: Yeah. We''ve still got over an hour before class.

    B: OK, then. I''m going to just run over to the Campus Shop and get this xeroxed and then come back. How many do I need? Ten?

    A: Plus one for Dr Auburn- that''s eleven. But if they''re too expensive, I don''t need one. I''ve seen it already.

    B: (laughs) It''s not going to break me. You get one too. See you.

    A: Yeah, OK. See you here in a few minutes then.
