Listen to a conversation between a student and a counselor at the University Counseling Center.
Hi, thanks for seeing me in such short notice.
No problem.How can I help?
Well, I think I might have made a mistake coming to the school.
What makes you say that?
I'm a little overwhelmed by the size of this place.I come from a small town. There were only 75 of us in my high school graduating class.Everyone knew everyone. We all grew up together.
So it's a bit of a culture shock for you?Being one of 15,000 students on a big campus in an unfamiliar city?
That's an understatement.I just can't get comfortable in class or in the dorms. You know, socially.
Um... well, let's start with the academics.Tell me about you classes.
I'm taking mostly introductory courses and some are taught in these huge lecture halls.
And you are having trouble in keeping pace with the material?
No, in fact I got an A on my first economics paper. It's just that, it's so impersonal, I'm not used to it.
Are your classes impersonal?
No, it's just that, for example, in sociology yesterday, the professor asked a question, so I raised my hand, several of us raised our hands.And I kept my hand up because I did the reading and knew the answer.But the professor just answered his own question and continued with the lecture.
Well, in a big room it's possible he didn't notice you.Maybe he was starting to save time.In either case I wouldn't take it personally.
I suppose. But I just don't know how to, you know, distinguish myself.
Why not stop by his office during office hours?
That wouldn't seem right.You know, taking time from other students who need help?
Don't say that. That's what office hours are for.There is no reason you couldn't pop in to say hi and to make yourself known.If you are learning a lot in class, let the professor know.Wouldn't you appreciate positive feedback if you were a professor?
You are right. That's a good idea.
OK, er... let's turn to your social life.How's it going in the dorms?
I don't have much in common with my roommate or anyone else I've met so far. Everyone's into sports and I'm more artsy, you know, into music.I play the cello.
Hah, have you been playing long?
Since age ten. It's a big part of my life. At home I was the youngest member of our community orchestra.
You are not going to believe this. There is a string quartet on campus, all students.And it so happened that the cellist graduated last year.They've been searching high and low for a replacement, someone with experience.Would you be interested in auditioning?
Absolutely.I wanted to get my academic work settled before pursuing my music here. But I think this would be a good thing for me.I guess if I really want to fit in here I should find people who love music as much as I do.Thank you.

There is no reason you couldn't pop in to say hi and to make yourself known. If you are learning a lot in class, let the professor know. Wouldn't you appreciate positive feedback if you were a professor?从第一句可以看出，“To offer a compliment”和“ To introduce herself”。

4. 目的题 答案：C 解析： 对应原文是： Teacher: I help students run the straw poll once years ago, uh, it was a lot of work. Most of you could use paper ballots, and stayed up all night counting them. 这里老师提到了纸质选票，说使用纸质选票的话需要有人熬夜去统计得票，对应了前面一句话说的工作会很繁重，也就是说举办一场这种非正式投票是很有挑战性的工作。选项C符合这里的意思。选项A的意思是说非正式民意调查和证实选举有什么不同，选项B的意思是说准确记录的重要性，选项D是说加强学生群体和学生会的沟通，都不符合原文。选择C。
offer a compliment == positive feedback
此题定位在：Don’t say that. That’s what office hours are for. There is no reason you couldn’t pop in to say hi and to make yourself known. If you are learning a lot in class, let the professor know. Wouldn’t you appreciate positive feedback if you were a professor? 我们同意转换一下 pop in to say hi and to make yourself known 对应着A 选项 而 make yourself known也就是C选项的 to introduce herself
