LISTENING 1 “PROFESSOR’S OFFICE”

Listen to a conversation between a student and a professor.

Professor: Okay Chris. Do you understand why I asked you to see me?

Student: I guess so. I did something in class… I apologize.

Professor: But do you understand what’s bothering me?

Student: No, not really. I like your class.

Professor: I’m glad you do. But Chris you’re disturbing the other students with your constant talking.

Student:  I am?

Professor: Yes. I’ve had several people complain about it. They’re missing key parts of the lecture because you’re talking.

Student: But I’m talking about the lecture. I’m not just making conversation.

Professor: Look, Chris. It doesn’t matter. When I am talking, you should be listening.

Student: Well, I’m sorry. Sometimes I don’t get a word or a phrase so I ask someone about it.

Professor: Okay. I really don’t think you’re creating a disturbance on purpose. If I did, I’d simply ask you to drop the class. Period.

Student: Oh please don’t do that.

Professor: That’s not my plan, but it has to be an option. Look, maybe you need to record the lectures. I don’t mind if you do that. Then, you can fill in the blanks when you listen the second time instead of asking your neighbor during the class.

Student: That’s a great idea. I really wanted to do that, but I was thinking you probably wouldn’t want me to.

Professor: And another thing. If you have questions, I need you to write them down and make an appointment to talk with me about them. That’s why I have office hours twice a week. Just call the department, and we’ll arrange a time.

Student: Excuse me. Dr. Pierce. Can I tell you something? Uh, I’m embarrassed to ask you questions.

Professor: Why in the world would that be? I ask for questions at the end of every lecture. I encourage students to use my office hours…

Student: I know you do. It’s just that where I went to school before I came here, if you asked a professor a question, it was an insult because . . . because it implied that he hadn’t explained everything well. You see, if the professor does a good job on the lecture, everything will be clear and no one will need to ask a question.

Professor: I see. Well, it’s different here. I’m not saying that your other experience is wrong. I’m just saying that we do things differently at the university in this country. In my dass I don’t expect you to understand everything in the lectures. And I don’t take it as a challenge when someone asks a question. I view the question as . .. kind of a compliment… because it means that person is very interested and is really trying to leam. That’s the kind of student I want.

Student: So, I can ask you questions in class?

Professor: Or in my office. Just don’t ask other students questions white I’m trying to give my lecture. That does upset me.

Student: Oh, Professor Pierce. I’m so sorry. I was trying to be respectful. I’m interested in the class and I want to know everything.

Professor: I see that. Now I’m asking you to show your interest and respect in a different way. I want you to ask me the questions at the times that I provide for question and answer— at the end of the lecture and during my office hours.

Student: And I can record the lectures?

Professor: Yes. Just don’t make a lot of noise in class, okay?

Student: Oh no, I won’t Thank you so much.
