Sample Recording 2: Conversation
Two or three of the recordings that you’ll hear in the listening section are conversations. Now, these conversations are shorter than the lectures. They’re about two to four minutes long. They’re usually closer to three minutes or four minutes. And in each conversation, you’ll have one student and one university employee.
This is often a professor. Sometimes it’s not a professor. Sometimes it’s any other adult who works at the university. That is not another student. In the speaking section of the test, you’ll also have conversations, and those will be between different people, sometimes two students.
But in the listening section, there’s only one type of conversation, and that is the one student, one employee conversation. Okay. So when you actually hear this conversation, you’ll see a picture. There will just be one picture, and it would be of the student and the professor or employee.
This will help to give you an idea of who the people are, what their relationship is, and how they act. There’s no real important information in the picture. There are no keywords, there’s no diagrams, there’s no illustrations, but it can help you to stay focused. Looking at the picture while you listen helps you to imagine real people in a real place actually talking, and that’s more interesting than just voices.
So use the picture to stay focused. Okay. Now we’re actually going to hear a conversation. But before we do, we would hear an introduction. And the introduction sounds something like this: Now listen to a conversation between a student and his professor.
Okay. Let’s hear it. Professor Schmidt. Sorry to interrupt. Do you have a moment? Hm? Oh, hi Allen. Please come in, come in.
What can I, what brings you to my office? It’s just, okay, well, after class yesterday Mm-hm. I was talking with Amy. Amy Mahone, who sits next to me. Right. And she mentioned that she’d been talking with a couple of the others in the class. And I don’t want to point a finger, but it sounded like they were talking pretty negatively about me. gossip.
I can understand how that can be troubling. It is. I guess I just don’t know what to do about it. They didn’t like my critique specifically. So I thought you might be able to help, since it’s really about how we’ve been interacting in class, reading one another’s essays and discussing them. Maybe you could talk with them, or I don’t know.
Well, I’m not really experienced in mediation, you know? I don’t know if me talking with these other students would really help all that much. I’m afraid I might just make matters worse. But I might be able to give some advice. Really? I’d appreciate just about anything.
It all feels so childish. I don’t know how to react. It, it might help to think of it a bit differently. Try to see it from, from their point of view. Do you know exactly what made them so upset? Yeah. That’s just it. Apparently, they said I was really arrogant.
That I thought I was better than everybody else. But I don’t think that. Not at all. So, where do you think that idea came from? Well, I guess I’ve been pretty critical in my responses to other student’s essays during our workshop classes. That sounds like a start. But if I don’t give my honest opinion, then how will anybody know how to improve?
If nobody talks about the, the problems of an essay, it will just stay the same. That’s not the point of the workshop, is it? You might be right, but maybe that’s not how everybody sees it. There are many people who think the most productive comments, the reactions that help us to improve the most, are the positive ones. But, I mean, I think I learn the most from the real criticisms, not the praise.
But I guess I could tell everybody that before my next workshop. If I ask for stronger criticism on my writing, maybe people won’t be upset about my comments on their essays. I think that’s a great idea. Now, I’m sorry Allen, but if I’m going to finish grading these tests before the weekend, I should probably get back to work. Do you mind? No, not at all.
I’m sorry I came in without an appointment like this. I hope you understand. Of course, I just hope I was able to help a bit.
