Narrator:Listen to a conversation between a student and his sociology professor.

独白:听下面一段学生和社会学教师之间的对话。
Well, I'm glad you redid your outline.
嗯,看到你把你的提纲又重新修改了一遍,我很高兴。
I fed a few comments, but nothing you have to act on.
我加了几条评语,但没有什么你要特别留心的东西。
It's in good enough shape for you to start writing your paper.
现在的提纲已经够好了,你可以用它来写你的论文了。
Thanks! At first I was afraid all that prep work would be a waste of time.
谢谢!一开头我还害怕之前所有的准备工作是在浪费时间。
Well, especially with a challenging topic like yours:factors leading to the emergence of sociology as an academic discipline.
嗯,特别是在构思一个像你的论文这样,特别具有挑战性的话题—导致社会学作为一个独立的学科出现的因素—的情况下。
There's just so much history to consider; you could get lost without a solid outline.
这个问题要考虑在内的历史情况太多了;要是没有一个扎实的基础的话,人很容迷失的。
So did you have a question?
嗯,你有事情?
Yeah, it's about…you mentioned needing volunteers for a research study?
是的,是关于…关于你提到需要志愿者参加一个研究项目的事情。
Yep, it's not my study.
是的,这不是我的研究项目,
It's my colleague's in the marketing department.
而是属于我在经济系的同事的。
She needs people to watch various new TV programs that haven't been broadcast yet, then indicate on a survey whether they liked it, why, if they'd watch another episode.
她需要一些观众观看各种还没有播出的电视节目,然后以调研的形式回答他们是否喜爱这些节目,为什么,是否向看更多同类的节目。
It'd be kind of fun plus participants get a $50 gift certificate.
这事儿会很有趣,并且参与者会得到价值 50 元的购物券。
Wow, well I like the sound of that.
哈哈!嗯,我想这听上去真不错!
But…so they are trying to predict if the shows are gonna succeed or fail, right, based on students' opinions? Why would they care what we think?
嗯,这个项目是想要通过学生的眼光,来预测这些节目是否会成功吗?为什么他们会想要知道我们的想法呢?
Hey, don't sell yourself short.
嘿,不要把自己看得太低了!
People your age are a very attractive market for advertisers who promote their products on television.
像你们这种年纪的人,很受那些想在电视上推广产品的广告商的青睐的。
The study is sponsored by a TV network.
这项研究是由一个电视台赞助的。
If enough students don't like the show, the network may actually reconsider putting it on the air.
如果不喜欢这个节目的学生达到一定数量,电视台会考虑裁掉这档节目。
OK, well, how do I sign up?
好的,嗯我怎么签名加入?
You just add your name and phone number to this list and check a time slot, although it looks like the only times left are next Monday morning and Thursday evening.
你只要把名字和电话号码写到这张单子上,看清楚时间表就好,好像只剩下下周一早上和周四晚上的节目了。
Oh, well, I have marketing and economics Monday mornings and Thursday.
哦,我周一和周四早上都有经济学和市场学的课。
OH, you are taking the marketing class? Who's teaching it?
哦,你在上市场学课?谁开的?
It's Professor Larg in - Intro to Marketing. Hr. hasn't mentioned the study though.

Oh, I like Fox's. I eat there every week. Maybe you could switch shifts with someone.
嗯,我觉得福克斯那家店不错,我每周都在那儿吃。如果可以的话,你应该和人调下班。
I'm still in training. And the only night my trainer works is Thursday. Look!
我还在培训呢!培训我的人唯一一个晚班是在周四的下午。你帮我想想办法吧?
I know the owners there really well.
我认识那家店的老板。
Why don't you let me give them a call and explain the situation?
