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

    FEMALE STUDENT:Hi, I was wondering if I could talk with you about the assignment in the film theory class.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Of course, Jill.

    FEMALE STUDENT:It seems that pretty much everyone else in the class gets what they are supposed to be doing but I'm not so sure.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Well, the class is for students who are really serious about film.You must have taken film courses before.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Yeah, in high school, [upspeak] Film Appreciation.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Um... I wouldn't think that would be enough. Did you concentrate mainly on form or content?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Oh, definitely content. We'd watch, say Lord of the Flies, and then discuss it.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Oh, that approach…treating film as literature, ignoring what makes it unique.

    FEMALE STUDENT:I liked it, though.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Sure, but that kind of class…Well, I'm not surprised that you are feeling a little lost.You know, we have two introductory courses that are supposed to be taken before you get to my course—one in film art, techniques…technical stuff…and another in film history.So students in the class you are in should be pretty far along in film studies.In fact, usually the system blocks anyone trying to sign up for a class they shouldn’t be taking, who hasn’t taken the courses you’re required to do first, as prerequisites.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Well, I did have a problem with that but I discussed it with one of your office staff, and she gave me permission.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Of course. [no surprise] No matter how many times I tell them, they just keep on.Well, for your own good, I'd really suggest dropping back and starting at the usual place.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Yes. But I've already been in this class for 4 weeks.I'd hate to just drop it now especially since I find it so different, so interesting.

    MALE PROFESSOR:I guess so—frankly, I can't believe you've lasted this long.These are pretty in-depth theories we've been discussing and you've been doing OK so far, I guess.But still, the program's been designed to progress through certain stages.Like any other professional training we build on previous knowledge.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Then maybe you could recommend some extra reading I can do to catch up?

    MALE PROFESSOR:Well, are you intending to study film as your main concentration?

    FEMALE STUDENT:No, no, I—I am just interested. I'm actually in marketing, but there seems to be a connection.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Oh... well, in... in that case, if you're taking the course just out of interest, I mean I still highly recommend signing up for the introductory courses at some point, but in the meantime, there is no harm I guess in trying to keep up with this class.The interest is clearly there.Uh, instead of any extra reading just now though, you could view some of the old introductory lectures—we have them on video—that would give you a better handle on the subject.It's still a pretty tall order, and we will be moving right along, so you will really need to stay on top of it.

    FEMALE STUDENT:OK, I've been warned. Now, could I tell you about my idea for the assignment...?

  • 旁白:请听一段学生和教授间的对话。

    学生:您好,我在想是不是能跟你讨论关于电影理论课作业的问题呢?

    教授:当然了,Jill。

    学生:似乎基本上班上每个人都知道他们应该做什么,但是我不太肯定。

    教授:嗯,这节课主要是针对那些真把电影当回事的学生而开的。你以前肯定学过电影课吧。

    学生:是的,高中的时候,电影鉴赏。

    教授:嗯,我认为那还不够。你有没有主要集中在电影的内容和形式上呢?

    学生:哦,当然,主要是内容。我们课上看过蝇王这部电影,然后进行讨论。

    教授:哦,是以这种方式的啊。将电影当做是文学作品,忽略了使电影独特的因素。

    学生:不管怎样我喜欢这种方式。

    教授:当然,但是那种课程...好吧,你感到有点摸不着头脑,并不奇怪。你知道,在上我的这 门课之前,你要上两外两门入门课程。一门是关于电影艺术,方法...专业知识...另一门是关于电影历史的。因此跟你一起上课的学生在电影研究上应该有一定的底子了。事实上,该系统经常让那些试图上这门课却不应该来的学生止步,还有那些没有按你的要求先填写必填信息的学生们。

    学生:嗯,这方面是有点问题,但是我已经跟您的一个同事谈过了,她允许我这么做。

    教授:当然。不管我跟他们强调多少次,他们还是继续这么做……好吧,为了你好,我真的建议你回到原点,从平常阶段开始。

    学生:是。但是这门课我已经上了4 个星期了。我真的不想现在放弃,特别是自从我发现这门课很不同很有趣。

    教授:我想是的。说实话,我不敢相信你居然待这么久。我们课上讨论的都是颇有深度的理论,而你到目前都做得还好。但是,还是那句话,该项课程一直以来都是为了让学生在某一阶段后能取得进步而设置的。就像其他专业训练一样,我们都要有先前的知识作为底子。

    学生:那么也许你可以给我推荐一些课外阅读,让我能,能赶上别人的进度。

    教授:你打算将电影作为你的主要科目吗?

    学生:不,不,我只是感兴趣。事实上我主修市场营销,但是两者之间似乎有点关联。

    教授:哦,好吧,这样的话,如果你是出于兴趣选修这门课,我的意思是,我还会是强烈推荐你去参加入门课程的学习,与此同时,努力跟上这门课不会有什么害处。你对它的兴趣显而易见。呃, 你可以看一些以前的入门演讲,而不是立即去看课外阅读,我们有这些演讲的视频,这样做你会更好掌握该门课。这要求还是很高,我们进度还会很快,所以你真的要一直跟上进度。

    学生:好的,我收到您的提醒了。那么现在我可以告诉你关于此次作业的看法吗?

    原文定位

    Well, for your own good, I’d really suggest dropping back and starting at the usual place…

    选项分析 

    学生来是想问一下assignment,但教授发现学生少修了两门基础课程,于是建议她drap back,对应着答案B。

    本题也可以用排除法。A选项,讨论assignment是学生来的目的,但并没有具体展开。C选项,selection of films并未提及,只说了学生高中课堂看过的lord of fly。D选项,只说到了两门基础课程的名字,并没有展开,也没有说到structure。
