You will hear a science student enquiring about English courses at a University language centre
Student: Hi, I’ve come to ask about the English courses you run for international students.
Administrator: Oh right — I assume you’re a student at the university‘!
Student: Yes. I’ve just started.
Administrator: OK. Well, we’ve got a range of courses. It depends what you think you need. And how much. Um – we can’t run everything at the same time though so, for example, in this first term we are just doing a writing course.
Student: I see. That sounds quite useful. What else is there’?
Administrator: Um, some of the courses only run for single terms and we tend to focus on what students have difficulty with. That means we don’t usually do speaking courses but next term you can do listening. That’ll help you with lectures and things. Our provision is all based on what the majority of our international students need.
Student: So is everything term-based — there’s nothing that you run all year?
Administrator: Well, let’s have a look. Yes, there is a class for vocabulary and grammar every term. That’s for everybody but it’s split into three or four levels.
Student: And what about in the holidays?
Administrator: We don’t do anything during the winter or spring break but over the summer there’s just general classes because that’s what most students want — a bit of everything.
Student: OK. Quite a variety then. I’ll have a think about what I really need because I haven’t got much time. Do you have about twenty students in each class — the same as our Science seminars?
Administrator: We try to keep it at about twelve and certainly not more than fifteen. It’s important for language classes. They’re very different from your normal courses.
Student: Right — and how much are the classes?
Administrator: The rate varies depending on how many hours you attend but you shouldn’t have to pay — usually the department will fund you and even sort out which classes you need.
Student: Brilliant! It would be quite useful for me to have a certificate to take back to my country. Do you put us in for exams?
Administrator: Yes. But we don’t like them to clash with your main course exams in June, so we run them in May. That leaves you time for revision.
Student: Do I have to sign up for something now? I’m not quite sure what I want.
Administrator: Classes haven’t quite started yet so you’ve got time to decide what you do. All we insist is that you siren up before week five. That gives you about three weeks to decide.
Administrator: Then, when you’ve made up your mind, you need to come back here to the administration office to enrol.
Student: What do I need to bring with me when I enrol? My identity card, I guess?
Administrator:Yes, or your passport. Then you’ll be given a registration form which you’ll have to show to the teacher when you have your first class.
Student: OK. And should I ask my tutor about which classes I should do then?
Administrator: Yes, then you get a note from him and give that to the desk when you register.
Student: Can I use the computers here as well?
Administrator: Yes, you’ll be given a password when you go to your first class, so remember to bring a disk with you to save your work on as you won’t be allowed to save it on the hard drive.
Student: OK. Will I need anything else? Dictionary?
Administrator: We’ve got loads of those here that you can borrow, but you’ll need a notebook as we don’t provide paper or files.
Student: OK. Thanks.
