LISTENING SCRIPT
I. COLLEGE LIFE
Maria: Oh, hi Dave. Long time, no see!
Dave: Hi Maria. I was in the neighborhood, so I thought I'd drop by.
Maria: Come on in. [Thanks.] Take a seat. Would you like anything to drink? I have Sprite or orange juice.
Dave: Sprite would be fine. Uh, so, how have you been?
Maria: Oh, not bad. And you?
Dave: Oh, I'm doing okay, but school has been really hectic these days, and I haven't had time to relax.
Maria: By the way, what's your major anyway?
Dave: Hotel management.
Maria: Well, what do you want to do once you graduate?
Dave: Uh... I haven't decided for sure, but I think I'd like to work for a hotel or travel agency in this area.
How about you?
Maria: Well, when I first started college, I wanted to major in French, but I realized I might have a hard
time finding a job using the language, so I changed majors to computer science. [Oh]. With the right
skills, landing a job in the computer industry shouldn't be as difficult.
Dave: So, do you have a part-time job to support yourself through school?
Maria: Well, fortunately for me, I received a four-year academic scholarship [Wow] that pays for all of my
tuition and books.
Dave: Wow. That's great.
Maria: Yeah. How about you? Are you working your way through school?
Dave: Yeah. I work three times a week at a restaurant near campus.
Maria: Oh. What do you do there?
Dave: I'm a cook.
Maria: How do you like your job?
Dave: It's okay. The other workers are friendly, and the pay isn't bad.

Dad: Wait, wait, wait . . . Where are you going?
Girl: Dad. I've already told mom. I'm going out tonight.

and Evan.
Dad: Dirk.
Girl: I have to go.
Dad: Wait, wait. I want to meet this guy.

Girl: Dad! We're going out to eat, and then we're going to catch a movie.

III. PICNIC PREPARATION
Scott: Dave. I'm going to the supermarket to pick up food and drink for Saturday's picnic later. Any
suggestions?
Dave: Well, everyone has been talking about having a barbecue down by the river, so why don't you pick up
some hamburger and hot dogs?
Scott: Okay, but how much hamburger meat are we going to need? And hot dogs too?
Dave: Uh, I don't know. How about three pounds of hamburger and a couple packages of hot dogs?
Scott: Oh, that's not going to be enough. Do you remember the last picnic we went on? Your roommate,
Jim,
ate about ten hamburgers by himself!
Dave: You're right. Let's see. I'd better write this down. Uh, let's see about nine pounds of hamburger meat
and, uh . . . , seven packages of hot dogs.
Scott: And you better pick up some chicken for those who don't like hamburger or hot dogs.
Dave: Okay. How about five or six bags of potato chips?
Scott: Humm. Better make that eight or so.
Dave: Alright. Oh, and we're gonna [going to] need some hamburger and hot dog buns. How about five
packages a piece? I think that sounds about right.
Scott: Yeah, you better pick up some mustard, catchup, and mayonnaise too.
Dave: Okay. What else? Uh, we're gonna [going to] need some soft drinks. How about ten of those big 2-
liter bottles?
Scott: Sounds fine, but be sure to buy a variety of drinks.
Dave: Okay. And what about dessert?
Scott: Well, maybe we could ask Kathy to make a few cherry pies like she did last time.
Dave: Well, I wouldn't mind that, but you know, she's been very busy working two jobs, so I'd hate to ask
her, [Oh, hum . . . ] and uh . . . Hey, why don't you whip up some of your oatmeal cookies? [Well . .
.] Hey, you could even ask, uh . . . , what's her name . . . yeah that new girl, Susan, the one that
moved in across the street! [Well . . .] I bet she'd be willing to help you! [I don't know . . . ] She's a
real knockout!
Scott: Nah, I don't think I could ask her . . .[Ahh!] I don't know her phone number, plus . . .
[ Door bell rings . . . ]
Dave: Hey, you don't need to. She's at the door!
Scott: What do you mean?
Dave: Well, I thought you two would hit it off, so I called her up saying I was you, and I invited her over to
watch a movie.
Scott: You did what???
Dave: Wait, wait, wait . . . [uhhhhh . . . ]
