    NARRATOR: Listen to a conversation between a student and an employee in the University bookstore.

    MALE STUDENT:Hi, I bought this book at the beginning of the semester, but, something's come up and... I'd like to return it.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Well, for a full refund, store policy is that you have to return merchandise 2 weeks from the time it was purchased, er... but for science text books or anything having to do with specific courses.Wait... was it for specific course?

    MALE STUDENT:Yeah, but actually...

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Well... for course books, the deadline is 4 weeks after the beginning of the semester.So for this fall semester, the deadline was October 1st.MALE STUDENT:Ouch, then I missed it. But, why October 1st?

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Emm, I guess the reasoning is that by October 1st, the semester is in full gear.And everyone kinda knows what courses they’ll be taking that semester

    MALE STUDENT:I get it.so it's mainly for people who decide to withdraw from… or to change to new courses early on.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Exactly! The books have to be in perfect condition of course.They can't be marked up or looked used in any way for the full refund, I mean.

    MALE STUDENT:Well, but, my situation is a little different. I hoped you might be able to make an exception.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Well, the policy is generally pretty rigid and the semester is almost over.

    MALE STUDENT:Okay, here is what happened?Um, I think my professor really miscalculated.Anyway the syllabus was way too ambitious in my opinion.There're only 2 weeks of classes left in the semester and there are like 6 books on the syllabus that we haven't even touched.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:I see. So you're hoping to return in this one.

    MALE STUDENT:Yeah, professor already announced that we won't be reading this one by Jane Bowles and all the others I bought used.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Jane Bowles? Which book of hers?

    MALE STUDENT:It's called "Two serious ladies".FEMALE EMPLOYEE:Oh, but you should keep that one. Are you interested in literature?

    MALE STUDENT:Well. I am in English major.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:You are lucky to have professor who includes the lesser known writer like her on the syllabus, you know, not the usual authors we've all read.

    MALE STUDENT:So you really think...

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:I do. And especially if you're into literature.

    MALE STUDENT:Hem, well, this I wasn't expecting. I mean... er, em... Wow.

    FEMALE EMPLOYEE:I hope you don't think I'm being too pushy.If you prefer, you can return the book and arrange for a store credit, you don't qualify for a refund.Policy is policy after all, but you can make an exchange and you can use the credit for your books for next semester.The credit carries over from one semester to the next.

    MALE STUDENT:Hmm... that's good to know, but now I am really intrigued, I guess that just because we run out of time to read this book in class, doesn't mean that I cannot read it on my own time.You know, I think I'll give it a try.

  • 旁白:听一段学生和大学书店员工的对话。

    学生:嗨,我在本学期初买了这本书,但是,中间出了点事情,我想退回来。

    雇员:呃,全额退还,我们店里的政策是在购买后的两个星期内归还商品才行。呃,但是对于科技类教科书或者与专业课程相关的书籍呢等一下,是专业课程的书吗?

    学生:是的,但是……

    雇员:嗯,专业课书籍的归还期限是在学期初的4 周内。所以今年秋季学期的最后期限是10月1日。学生:天啊,那我就错过时间了,但是为什么了10 月1 日呢?

    雇员:呃,我想是因为学期规划阶段吧。每个人都知道这学期有什么课程可以上。

    学生:我明白了。所以一般是针对那些放弃正在学的课程,然后尽快换新课程的人。

    雇员:是的。当然书本一定要保持完好无损才成。我的意思是,全额退款的话,书不能被标记或者看起来像是被用过

    学生:呃,但是我的情况有些特殊,我希望你能为我破一次例。

    雇员:一般我们的政策是很严格的,而且这学期已经快结束了。

    学生:好,是这样的。嗯,我想我的教授算错了。不管怎么样吧,我们的教学大纲在我来看任务量太重了上学期我们仅有两周的课程,但是大纲上的六本书我们还碰都没有碰过。

    雇员:明白了。所以你希望退还这本书。

    学生:是的。教授已经说我们无需读一本简布恩的书以及我买的其他几本书。

    雇员:简布恩?哪本书?

    学生:叫做《两位严肃的女人》。雇员:哦,但是你应该留着那本书。你对文学感兴趣吗?

    学生:我是英语专业。

    雇员:你很幸运,因为你的教授涵盖了像她这样优秀作家的书目在教学大纲里面, 你知道,她和一般的作家不一样。

    学生:那么你真的认为?

    雇员:是的。尤其是你对文学感兴趣。

    学生:嗯,我倒没想这么多,我的意思是,哇哦……

    雇员:我希望你不要认为我咄咄逼人。如果你没意见的话,你可以把书归还回来,然后换取一些书店信用值,你还不能全额退款毕竟规定就是规定,但是你可以换成你下学期能用到的其他书目。信用值可以从一个学期延迟到下一个学期继续使用。

    学生:嗯,那也不错。但是现在我还真的是感兴趣了,我想在课堂上我们没有时间来读,但不意味着我平时没有时间读。你知道的,我想读一下。

    选项分析:
    学生在对话一开始就提出要还书,并且解释他还书的原因There’re only 2 weeks of classes last semester and there are I‘d like 6 books on the syllabus that we haven’t even touched.说明这本书原本是在教学大纲里的但是现在没有时间用了,C选项正确。
