    NARRATOR: Listen to a conversation between a student and her academic advisor.

    FEMALE STUDENT: Hi, Professor Jones. Thanks for seeing me.

    MALE PROFESSOR: No problem, Laura. How was your summer break?

    FEMALE STUDENT: It was great! But the fact is, it's made me reconsider my academic plans.

    MALE PROFESSOR: Oh really...? Nothing too dramatic, I hope.

    FEMALE STUDENT: No, no, at least I hope not.

    MALE PROFESSOR: What do you mean—exactly?

    FEMALE STUDENT: Well, I just spent the summer working on a Native American reservation, a Navajo reservation, in Arizona. And I was fascinated...so, now I want to study the Navajo language, um, their history, religion...I want to go back next summer, too, and maybe even spend a semester there, some kind of internship or independent study.

    MALE PROFESSOR: Wow, sounds like you're really enthusiastic.But, you were majoring in sociology and I seem to recall that for your senior project you were doing something with education...

    FEMALE STUDENT: Right. I've done some research on the public schools in the northeastern states... how they’ve been affected by changes in population... um... immigration trends—during the past 50 years.But now, I really want to study the culture of the Navajo people.

    MALE PROFESSOR: Well, there are a couple of options ... depending on your priorities.Say, how'd you end up on a reservation in Arizona anyway?

    FEMALE STUDENT: Well, a friend of mine took a job there ... uh, in a summer-school program... and they had another opening—someone canceled at the last minute.I thought it would just be a big adventure. But it turned out to be much more than that.

    MALE PROFESSOR: I see. Anyway, as I was saying, your options depend on what your priorities are... and on exactly what you want to study.

    FEMALE STUDENT: UH, like I said…Navajo culture.

    MALE PROFESSOR: Let's see if we can be more specific.If you want to study the Navajo language, learn about their religion, their history... that's part of cultural anthropology.

    FEMALE STUDENT: No, I really don't want to change majors at this point. I love sociology, and I really want to graduate in four years.

    MALE PROFESSOR: OK, now I see what your priorities are. So, from a sociological perspective...since you’re interested in education, you can stay with that... change your research topic to the Native American experience with public education... the effect it's had.And you could take sociology courses on religion or the role of minorities in society... again, focusing your research on the Navajo.

    FEMALE STUDENT: Um, I hadn't thought about that angle. Sounds intriguing.And all the courses I've already taken would still count toward my degree?

    MALE PROFESSOR: I'd have to check, and we might need to plan carefully to make sure all your degree requirements are met, but I don't see any problems.

    FEMALE STUDENT: Great. And then I can pick up the language and culture courses as electives.

  • 旁白:听一段学生和学术指导的对话。

    学生:你好,琼斯教授。感谢您能抽时间见我。

    教授:没事儿的,劳拉。暑假过的怎么样?

    学生:很好!事实上这让我重新考虑我的学术计划。

    教授:哦,真的吗?我希望变化不要太大。

    学生:不,不会的,我也不希望有太大的变动。

    教授:那你具体想怎么做呢?

    学生:我这个暑假在一个美国原住民保护区工作,一个纳瓦霍保护区,在亚利桑那州。我对此很着迷……所以,现在我想学习纳瓦霍语,他们的历史、宗教……明年夏天我想再去一次,甚至可能在那里度过一个学期,在那实习或独立研究。

    教授:哇哦,听起来你真的很有热情。但是,你的专业是社会学,我记得你的毕业设计好像与教育有关……

    学生:是的。我是做了一些关于东北部各州的公立学校的研究……他们如何受到人口变化的影响…嗯…过去50年的移民趋势。但现在,我真的想去学习纳瓦霍人的文化。

    教授:嗯,有几个选择…根据你的优先顺序。你是怎么去亚利桑那州的?

    学生:我的一个朋友在那里找了份工作……在暑期学校的项目里…他们多了一个空位——有人在最后一刻放弃了。我以为这将是一次大冒险。但结果远不止这些。

    教授:我明白了。不管怎样,就像我说的,你的选择取决于你的优先级是什么…以及你想学什么。

    学生:呃,就像我说的......纳瓦霍文化。

    教授:我们看看能不能说得更具体些。如果你想学习纳瓦霍语,了解他们的宗教、历史……这是文化人类学的一部分。

    学生:不,我不想现在换主修专业。我喜欢社会学,我也想在四年内毕业。

    教授:好了,现在我知道你的重点是什么了。所以,从社会学的角度来看……既然你对教育感兴趣,你可以继续……把你的研究主题换成美国原住民的经历和公立教育……以及他们对教育产生的影响。你还可以学习关于宗教或少数民族在社会中的作用的社会学课程。同时把你的研究集中在纳瓦霍人身上。

    学生:嗯,我从没想过这个角度。听起来有趣。所以我已经修过的所有课程都会继续帮我取得学位么?

    教授:我得核实一下,我们可能需要仔细计划一下,以确保你能顺利拿到学位,但我觉得没什么问题。

    学生:太好了。然后我可以选修纳瓦霍人的语言和文化课程了。

    选项分析:

    对话中学生表明了她因为暑期在一个美国当地保护区工作, 对当地的Navajo语言产生了兴趣,所以想要第二年暑假也去学习,与选项C一致,故选项C正确。
