M: Hello can I come in?
F: Oh yes, come in. How can I help you?
M: I was looking for the Economics office. I’ve been all over the Arts Faculty building looking for it but I could only find the School of Accounting and Economic History. Is this the right place?
F: Yes this is the School of Economics.
M: Oh good. Um, I’m a new student and I was wondering if someone could give
me some information.
F: Well I might be able to help. I lecture on that program. What do you need to
M: Quite a few things, actually. Firstly, how many lectures a week do I have to
F: Ah, well, the Economics I course is a double unit so there are two lectures a
week and one tutorial. The lectures are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday.
M: What time?
F: Let me see … You know this information is all in the handout which you
should have received yesterday at the orientation meeting.
M: Oh, was there a meeting yesterday? I didn’t know about that … no one mentioned …
F: Yes, there was, but never mind. Now lectures are at four in the afternoon.
M: Four’s a bit late. I’ve got a part time job that starts at four thirty.
F: Well, you can’t be in two places at once, can you, and attendance at lectures
is necessary. We expect at least 90% attendance at this university you know.
M: 90%! That’s high. Do they enforce that rule?
F: Yes, we do. We’re pretty strict about it actually.
M: And what times have been set down for the tutorials — do you have that
F: That’s a very well attended course so there’s a number of tutorial times.
Monday,Wednesday and Friday,all at 9 o’clock. Yours will be allocated at
the first lecture.
M: Can’t I choose the time?
F: Maybe, maybe not.. You’ll have to talk to the lecturer on the course.
Dr. Roberts is his name.
M: Oh, OK.
