    TOEFL Listening Comprehension Transcript

    Narrator
    Listen to two roommates talking about fraternities.

    Eddie: Oh hi, Marlon. I didn''t hear you come in.

    Marlon: Shower''s too loud. Boy, you sure take long ones. Doesn''t your mother complain?

    E: Every time. She says I double the water bill.

    M: I can believe it.

    E: But a shower doesn''t use nearly as much water as taking a bath does. ''Course, you wouldn''t know- you don''t use either one.

    M: Haw! You''d know if I didn''t. You wouldn''t be able to breathe in here right now. What''s the occasion?

    E: It''s Rush Week, my man. I''ve got a fraternity to check out tonight. Omega Theta.

    M: Omega Theta? Really? They rushed you? That''s a feather in your cap- Everybodys says they''re really cool.

    E: Yeah, they are. But they''ve also got a good reputation for academics, too. They''ve got the highest GPA on Fraternity Row..

    M: Hmm- that means you''re gonna have to keep up your average, too.

    E: Yeah, but I figure that''ll be easier to do with a little help from some Omega Theta friends.

    M: You''ve got friends there?

    E: I will if I join. They''ve got a pretty strict study regimen: everyone gets assigned a tutor- an upper-class brother- kind of an academic buddy system. They say it works good.

    M: Sounds good if you need that.

    E: And I do. I''m not a self-starter at all. Left to myself, I tend to fiddle around and get nothing done.

    M: Me too, I guess- if I go to the library or the coffee shop to study, I do better, but if I sit around here, I just dawdle. I listen to music or pick at the guitar or, uh, anything to avoid getting down to my assignments.

    E: That''s why I think Omega Theta is a good idea.

    M: But what about the really important stuff?

    E: Huh? What''s that?

    M: Their parties! They don''t have much of a rep as a party house.

    E: No, they don''t.

    M: Well? Isn''t that the main reason for joining a fraternity- to party and meet girls?

    E: (laughs) For some guys, I guess so, yes. I like to party too, but not every weekend like the Delta Taus do. Now, that''s a real animal house- talk about reputation!

    M: Yeah, probably a little much for me, too, when I think about it. We gotta stay a bit serious, after all- we''ve gotta find jobs when we leave here!

    E: Anyway, Omega Theta does throw a good party or two along the way, just before Christmas and Easter break- and at Halloween, of course.

    M: Oh boy! I hope you''ll invite me to that one! I love Halloween parties!

    E: Sure, if I can- but I haven''t even been invited to join yet.

    M: Oh yeah, I forgot. Well, I want to hear how it goes tonight.

    E: You bet. Reception''s at six-thirty, dinner''s at seven. There''ll be some talking and a tour of the house and some one-on-one. No alcohol, I think. So I should be back here by nine-thirty or ten at the latest. Then I''ll spill all.

    M: Hey! I just thought of something! If you join Omega Theta and move into their house, what am I gonna do for a roommate?

    E: No, no, you''re stuck with me for a while yet in any case. They don''t have freshman residents, just upper classmen., and not a lot of those. It''s not a big house.

    M: How many are staying there anyway?

    E: I dunno- about a dozen or so, I think. I think they''ve got five or six bedrooms. Everybody else is in the dorms or off campus. But they''ve got a big hall that''ll hold thirty or forty brothers for meetings and cram sessions and things.

    M: Huh! Well, I don''t want to hold you up. It''s almost six o''clock now.

    E: What? Yipes! I gotta go get dressed and get outta here!

    M: I''ll leave you to it. I''m going over to the Campus Club and see if there''s a good movie on.

    E: Don''t you have anything better to do?

    M: Naw. No one''s rushing me tonight. Maybe it''s the garlic I ate at lunch.

    E: (laughs) Couldn''t be your personality, could it?

    M: Thanks. You''re my pal, too. Lock the door when you leave, will you?

    E: Yep. See you about ten?

    M: If the movie''s over. If there is one. Otherwise, I''ll just be hanging out back here.

    E: OK. See you later.

    M: See you. Have fun!
