Question 1 of 5

1.What are the speakers mainly discussing?



Listen to a conversation between a student and a cafeteria manager.

Manager:  Oh, hi, you're Amy, right?

Student:  Yes.

Manager:  I haven't seen you here for a while. Welcome back. 

Student:  Thanks. Uh, you're right. I haven't been eating here regularly like I used to.

Manager:  Why not?

Student:  A couple of reasons. First of all, I have a class that ends during lunch time. So by the time I get here, there's hardly any food left. 

Manager:  Really?

Student:  Yeah. And then I have a chemistry lab at night this semester. It's 2 hours every Tuesday and Thursday. You know that building is way across campus. So I just eat something in my dorm before I leave or skip dinner altogether. I come here afterward, but lab lets out at 7:30 and...By then the cafeteria is already closed.

Manager:  Oh, I'm really sorry. Well, what about getting something to go and eating it in class?

Student:  I cant. Food isn't permitted anywhere near the laboratories. I wish you stayed open later.

Manager:  Have you complained formally? We've always had a suggestion box. And now, you can send us an e-mail.

Student:  As a matter of fact, I did fill out a suggestion card. I asked for longer hours and for better food choices, too. But that was like weeks ago. And nothings changed from what I can see. 

Manager: You know, I was just promoted to cafeteria manager, and one of the things I'm trying to do is pay more attention to students' concerns. There have been a lot of complaints similar to yours over the years. 

Student: Yeah. A lot of my friends complain about the cafeteria, but I figure nothing will ever be done.

Manager: Well, some things can change. For instance, you mentioned you like better food choices. Is there anything in particular you like added to the menu?

Student:  Hmm, I guess it'd be nice to get hot cereal in the morning, and maybe a wider choice of soups and salads at lunch and dinner. And there should definitely be enough food to feed everyone whenever the cafeteria is open.

Manager:  Hmm hmm. ... But all good suggestions. Say, were you aware that the university has recently formed a food advisory committee? It includes myself, a nutritionist, the school chef, a food science professor and the person who oversees the cafeteria budget.

Student:  Do you want me to talk to the committee?

Manager: I was thinking you might like to serve on the committee. If you are interested, I'll recommend you as the student representative.

Student:  Oh, I'm not so sure if I have enough spare time to get that involved.

Manager:  Ok, then why don't I let you know when and where our next meeting is? And we will put you on the agenda. You may also want to send me an e-mail with all of your suggestions. Now that I am in charge, I will make sure they get serious consideration.

Student:  Id appreciate that. Thanks.



题目解析:本题定位到原文:I wish you stayed open later.... ... As a matter of fact, I did fill out a suggestion card. I asked for longer hours and for better food choices, too. 此处原文的大意是:女生表示希望餐厅开得晚一点,然后还说自己填过意见卡,也是表示希望延长餐厅的开放时间。 题干问的是对话主要谈论了什么。 选项A的意思是男人最近被提升为餐厅经理,选项B是委员会会议的安排,选项C是提高餐厅服务的方法,选项D是餐厅的菜单最近的变化。选项C符合原文,其他三个选项均不合适。
