YOU SAY THAT IN ENGLISH？
Campus Talk (XI)
(Classes and Teachers)
Will: I heard that you're taking three upper-level courses this semester. How are you going to get all the reading done?
Anne: It won't be so hard-- the rest of my courses are all introductory-level.
Laura: Excuse me, Professor. Are there any prerequisites for your research seminar?
Prof. Weaver: Yes, there are. You must have passed Introduction to
Sociology and one other seminar of your choice before you can take the research seminar.
Warren: Is Contemporary Philosophy a lecture course?
Renee: That's right. It meets in the lecture hall in the Humanities Building, and there's never an empty seat, so there must be over two hundred students taking the course.
Greg: There are so many students in the lectures that the professor doesn't have time to answer everybody's questions.
Winona: Well, we can always ask one of the TA's (teaching assistants) in our discussion section.
Chris: Are you taking all of those courses for credit?
Jane: No, I'm only taking five; the other three, I'm just auditing.
Nancy: I'm afraid that if I take that course, I'll ruin my GPA.
James: Well, why don't you take it pass/fail?
Larry: I didn't get into any of the courses I wanted!
Edward: Well, that happens sometimes with our school's computer registration. It's based on seniority, and you're only a freshman.
Edward: Don't forget: the add/drop period ends today, so turn in your form at the registrar's office.
Larry: I won't forget-- if I don't add any courses, I won't be taking anything!
Larry: It turns out that my classes are all in the morning.
Edward: That's a great schedule. You'll have the afternoon free every day.
James: Are you really taking twenty-one credits this semester?
Nancy: Yeah. My schedule's really over-loaded, but I need all the credits to graduate on time.
