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

    MALE PROFESSOR:Oh hi Melanie, how are you doing?

    FEMALE STUDENT:I’m good thanks. I just have some questions about this paper, for your class. Do you have a second to talk about it now?

    MALE PROFESSOR:Oh yes, no problem; I have about 20 minutes before my next class. Will that be enough time?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Yeah I think so. Okay so the thing is, you know, okay I’m writing my paper on the history of jazz in New York City.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Alright, well that’s a pretty broad subject.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Well, actually I'm focusing on a specific decade– the 50s – and on [short pause] and I'm only doing it on a few specific artists.

    MALE PROFESSOR:[relieved] Oh okay – because I was going to say that seemed a bit, ah, too ambitious for a 10 page paper.

    FEMALE STUDENT:[laughs] Yeah. No, it’s not the subject I’m having trouble with – actually the paper is practically writing itself, I mean I’ve got a lot to say and it’s going pretty well.The thing is, I have this idea…that might make it better and I was wondering if there's any way I could get an extension…I mean I know it’s due next week right?

    MALE PROFESSOR:That’s right, on Monday.But I don’t understand, it sounds like you’re doing so well; why do you need more time?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Yeah well, I could write the paper as it is and turn it in on time and it would be fine…

    MALE PROFESSOR:But?

    FEMALE STUDENT:But I was just talking to one of my friends, whose family has lived in New York forever, and it turns out that her grandfather was actually there in the period of jazz I’m writing about – I mean he was a jazz musician and he actually, like personally knew the artists I’m writing about.

    MALE PROFESSOR:You’re kidding! Well that’s a coincidence.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Yeah. I know. It's cool. Right?So anyway, that's why I was wondering if I could get an extension, because I thought it would be really great if I could like, interview him, for my paper…

    MALE PROFESSOR:[interested] Ah...

    FEMALE STUDENT:But I don't think I can meet with him until early next week.So [trailing off] ...

    MALE PROFESSOR:Ah I see, well! It would certainly add a new dimension to your paper, wouldn't it?Have you talked to this gentleman yet?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Um, no, but I talked to my friend, just, you know ran the idea past her, and she said he would probably love to do it.But, you know, he’s busy until next week.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Okay well, yeah! I think that in this case we can definitely extend your deadline until, that's say, Friday next week?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Okay. That would be great!

    MALE PROFESSOR:But just to be fair, why don't you turn in an outline of your paper on the due date?

    FEMALE STUDENT:The outline... oh that’s no problem. It's basically done except for the parts about the interview.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Oh yeah... the interview. Could you have the questions ready then too... the ones you’re planning on asking?

    FEMALE STUDENT:Sure, yeah I can do that, too.

    MALE PROFESSOR:And then I'll expect the final draft next Friday.

    FEMALE STUDENT:Okay great! Thanks.

    MALE PROFESSOR:Sure, I’m looking forward to reading it!

  • 旁白:听一段学生和教授之间的对话。

    教授:哦,你好,梅兰妮,你好吗?

    学生:我很好,谢谢。我对这门课的论文有些疑问。你现在有空谈谈吗?

    教授:哦,有的,没问题。在下一节课之前,我大约有二十分钟的时间。这点时间够吗?

    学生:哦,我觉得够了。好的,事情是这样的,我正在写的论文是关于纽约爵士的历史。

    教授:嗯,这是一个相当宽泛的主题。

    学生:其实我专注于一个特定的年代,50年代,而且我只着眼于一些特定的艺术家。

    教授:哦,好吧,因为我要说的是,对于一个10页的论文来说,似乎有点过于雄心勃勃了。

    学生:确实,但这不是我遇到的问题,实际上这篇论文自己就完成了。我的意思是,我有很多话要说,而且进展顺利。问题是,我有个想法,可能会使它更好,我想知道是否有任何方法可以得到延期。我的意思是,我知道下星期就到期了。对吗?

    教授:对,星期一。但我不明白,听上去你做得很好。你为什么需要更多的时间呢?

    学生:是的。嗯,我可以就像现在这样完成这篇论文,然后如期交付,这样也可以。

    教授:但是?

    学生:但我刚刚和我的一个朋友聊天,他们家一直住在纽约!事实上,她的祖父生活在我写的爵士乐时期。我的意思是,他是一个爵士音乐家,事实上,就像我本人认识我所写的艺术家一样。

    教授:你开玩笑吧!那真是巧啊。

    学生:是的,我知道,很酷,对吧?所以,这就是为什么我无论如何想知道是否可以获准延期,因为我认为为了我的论文,如果我可以采访他,这将是非常棒的一件事。

    教授:呃...

    学生:但是,我认为在下周初之前我是没法和他见到面的。

    教授:哦,我明白了。这肯定会为你的论文增加一个新的维度,对吧?你和这位先生谈过了吗?

    学生:呃,还没有,但是我和我的朋友谈过了,通过她传达给了她祖父,她说他祖父很乐意(接受我的采访)。但你知道,他要忙到下个星期才有空。

    教授:好的。我认为在这种情况下,我们可以延长你的截止日期,也就是说,下周五?

    学生:好的。这太好了!

    教授:为了公平起见,你可不可以在截止日期前把你论文的大纲交上来呢?

    学生:大纲...哦,没问题。基本上除了访问的部分以外都已经完成了。

    教授:哦,没错。访问。你能把采访的问题也准备好吗?那些你打算问的问题。

    学生:当然可以,我也可以做到!

    教授:那我期待下周五的终稿。

    学生:好的。太好了。谢谢!

    教授:当然,我期待阅读你的论文。
