[TOEFL LISTENING Conversation ]

Listen to a conversation between a student and a dining services director
(female)Student: Hi. I don’t know what my parents were thinking. They sort of went overboard and bought me the plan of 235 meals a semester.
(male)Director: Well, I bet they were probably thinking that this is your first year of college and that you’d have plenty to think about without having to worry about food. It’s pretty common among first year students.
Student: It is?
Director: Yeah, and most students will try to cut down on their plans in the second year.
Student: My first year is almost done. And I wanna go for the smallest plan available next year. What are my choices?
Director: Well, besides the 235 what you have this year, we got the 190.
Student: What about the 95 meal plan?
Director: Oh, that’s only for 3rd and 4th year students.
Student: OK. I guess I can deal with that. But my real question is I still got about 60 meals left on this year’s plan. So I’d like to know if I could carry them over.
Director: Carried over? You mean like if you can use them for the next year?
Student: Yeah, I mean, see, I didn’t use ‘em, and they’ve been paid for already.
Director: I’m sorry you can’t do that.
Student: How about….well….can’t the price of those leftover meals….I mean…can it be deducted from next year’s charges or something?
Director: No, according to our policy, we do not provide credit for unused meals.
Student: Well, is there any way to get a refund then?
Director: No, I’m sorry. We don’t provide credits or refunds.
Student: So, what am I supposed to do now? How am I supposed to eat 60 meals in two weeks?
