Listen to a conversation between a student and his academic adviser.
So, how is the semester going so far?
Well, I'm having some trouble.
I need some advice.
Well, I'm taking advanced chemistry and it's turning out to be a lot more work than I expected,
especially because we have to put in so much time in the laboratory.
Yeah, I really like it but my schedule is just too full because
you know I'm also writing a weekly editorial for the campus newspaper?
And now with advanced chemistry, it's too much.
That's right. Yes, I enjoy reading your editorials.
how about instead of writing an editorial every week,
you only write one every two weeks?
Then next semester you go back to writing it every week.
Mmm...it is hard to keep up with those weekly deadlines and that would give me the extra time I need for advanced chemistry.
But my editorial has so many readers. It's the first thing a lot of people read and I hate to disappoint them.
Ok. Well, there's another possibility.
You'll require to take a science course
but you don't have to take an advanced course
so you could switch to a less challenging course, basic chemistry.
I guess the basic course would take up less time.
Definitely, for one thing, you'll spend much less time in the laboratory.
Mmm...that's an interesting idea
but I love the challenge of the advanced course. I feel like I'm learning so much.Mmm...Mmm...
