    <-NARRATOR:-> Listen to a conversation between two students.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Hey Steve!
    Are you ready for classes to start?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Not really!
    There is still a big conflict in my course schedule.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> What's wrong?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> This is my last semester, and I've still got two required courses left to take in order to finish my literature degree.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> [following] OK...
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> I have to take both History of the Novel and Shakespeare, or I can't graduate.
    Problem is the two courses meet at the same time.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Uh oh!
    What are you gonna do?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Well, I talked to the professor who's gonna teach Shakespeare.
    He said I could do an independent study to fulfill that requirement.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> How would that work?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> I'd read the assigned texts on my own, do all the same assignments and meet with him when I need to, if I have any questions.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Well, that sounds like a good way to fulfill the requirement.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, plus it would be nice to have one-on-one discussions with the professor.
    It's just that… [sigh] well, working on my own like that?
    I am kind of concerned I won't be able to motivate myself enough to get the work done on time.
    It is easy to put things off when it is not actual class, you know.
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> Are there other options?
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Emm, yeah.
    I found out that the shaksper class is being offered at another university about half an hour from here.
    That university has a really great literature program and our university will accept their credits, so
    <-FEMALE STUDENT:-> That's an idea.
    <-MALE STUDENT:-> Yeah, I am sure it'd be a good class and it'll fulfill the requirement.
    Only thing is, you know, I have to drive a half a hour to get to the class and a half an hour to come back, three times a week.
    That's a lot of time and gas in money...


Briefly summarize the problem the speakers are discussing. Then state which solution you would recommend. Explain the reasons for your recommendation.
