    NARRATOR:Listen to a conversation between a student and a professor.

    MALE STUDENT:Hi, Professor Archer, you know how in class last week you said that you were looking for students who were interested in volunteering for your archaeology project?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Of course, are you volunteering?

    MALE STUDENT:Yes, I am. It sounds really interesting, but um... do I need to have any experience for these kinds of projects?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:No, not really. I assume that most students taking the introductory level class would have little or no experience with archaeological research, but that's OK.

    MALE STUDENT:Oh, good, that's a relief. Actually, that's why I'm volunteering for the project - to get experience. What kind of work is it?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Well, as you know, we're studying the history of the campus this semester.This used to be an agricultural area and we already know that where the main lecture hall now stands, there once were farm house and barn that were erected in the late 1700s[seventeen hundreds].We're excavating near the lecture hall to see what types of artifacts we find, you know, things people used in the past that got buried when the campus was constructed.We've already begun to find some very interesting items, like old bottles, buttons, pieces of clay pottery...

    MALE STUDENT:Buttons and clay pottery? Did the old owners leave in such a hurry that they left their clothes and dishes behind?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:[laughs] that's just one of the questions we hope to answer with this project.

    MALE STUDENT:Wow-and it's all right here on campus.

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:That's right, no traveling involved. I wouldn't expect volunteers to travel to a site, especially in the middle of the semester.We expect to find many more things, but we do need more people to help.

    MALE STUDENT:So... how many student volunteers are you looking for?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:I'm hoping to get five or six. I've asked for volunteers in all of the classes I teach, but no one has responded.You are the first person to express interest.

    MALE STUDENT:It sounds like it could be a lot of work.Is there ... is there any way I can use the experience to get some extra credit in class? I mean, can I write a paper about it?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:I think it'll depend on what type of work you do in the excavation, but I imagine we can arrange something.Well, actually, I’ve been considering offering extra credit for class because I’ve been having a tough time getting volunteers … extra credit is always a good incentive for students.

    MALE STUDENT:And... how often would you want the volunteers to work?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:We're asking for three or four hours per week, depending on your schedule.A senior researcher, I think you know John Franklin, my assistant, is on site every day.

    MALE STUDENT:Sure, I know John. By the way, will there be some sort of training?

    FEMALE PROFESSOR:Yes, I want to wait till Friday to see how many students volunteer.And then I'll schedule a training class next week at a time that's convenient for everyone.

    MALE STUDENT:Ok. I'll wait to hear from you. Thanks a lot for accepting me.

  • 旁白:听一段学生和教授的谈话。

    学生:你好,Archure 教授,你上周在课堂里说过你在找有兴趣做你考古项目志愿工作的学生?

    教授:是的,你想做?

    学生:是的。听起来挺有意思的,但是,呃……我需要有相关的工作经历吗?

    教授:不需要。我想绝大多数读入门课程的学生都没有考古研究的经验,但这没有问题。

    学生:哦,不错,我就松一口气了。其实,这就是我要志愿做这个项目的原因——获取经验。需要做什么样的工作?

    教授:正如你了解的,我们这个学期正在学习校园历史。现在是大讲堂的这里曾经是农耕区,这里原来有茅屋和谷仓,建于18 世纪末。我们正在大讲堂附近发掘,看看我们能找到什么器物,就是过去人们用过后来因建校园而埋下的东西。我们已经发现一些非常有趣的像旧瓶子,纽扣陶瓷器之类的东西。

    学生:纽扣和陶瓷器?是原来住在那里的人因为急着离开而留下衣服和餐具吗?

    教授:嗯……那只是我们这个项目需要回答的问题之一。

    学生:哇,在校园做应该没有问题。

    教授:是的,不需要出差。我们不让志愿者(长途)出差到遗址,尤其是现在学校还在上课。我们期望在这个项目中发掘更多的东西,但是我们的确需要更多的人手。

    学生:那么,你现在需要多少学生志愿者呢?

    教授:我希望能有五六个。我已经向我所有授课的班级提出了志愿者邀请,但是没有人回应。你是第一个表示有兴趣的。

    学生:听起来工作量会很大。是不是,呃,我可不可以利用这次实践经验获得额外的学分呢?我的意思是,我能写份相关的论文吗?

    教授:我想这要取决于你在挖掘工作中会做什么类型的工作,但我觉得我们可以安排一些。事实上我一直在考虑给学生们提供额外的学分,因为我一直很难找到志愿者。而额外的学分对学生来说总是一个很好的奖励。

    学生:那你想要志愿者多长时间工作一次呢?

    教授:我想最好能每周三到四个小时,根据你们的档期来。一位资深研究人员,我想你认识的,约翰富兰克林,是我的助手,他每天都在。

    学生:当然我认识他。对了,会不会有培训之类的?

    教授:有,呃。我想等到周五看多少学生志愿者再说。到时我会安排下周的培训课程,排在大家都方便的时候。

    学生:好的。我会等你的消息。感谢你接受我的请求。

    Hi, Professor Archer. You know how in class last week you said that you were looking for students who were interested in volunteering for your archaeology project?

    ....

    I wouldn’t expect volunteers to travel to a site, especially in the middle of the semester.

    选项分析

    答案选B,学生来咨询一个volunteer project,但mid-semester是文章中间才提到的,B选项有一定难度。A选项,文章明确提到volunteer,不是assignment作业。C选项,并不是job。D选项,improve grade是中后段提到的。
