ConversationPoetry Club Activity And Time Management: Narrator: Listen to a conversation between two students. They are both studying to be English teachers. Woman: Did you register already for your classes next semester? Man: Yes, I did. Woman: What are you taking? Man: Contemporary literature, English style, a teaching seminar, and I still have to do my student teaching. I'm gonna help teach a writing class at the junior high. Woman: That's a heavy schedule. Man: Yeah, it'll be really busy. And I'm also taking a theory class. I would have to quit my job in a couple of weeks 'cause it'll be just too much. Woman: Where do you work at? Man: Buter's Coffee Shop. But just till the end of the month. What are you doing next semester? Woman: Actually it's teaching seminar, too. And I'll have to start writing my thesis. You know I'm also going for my master's degree. Man: So you are not writing any poetry I imagine. Woman: No, I was actually thinking about revising some of my poems and sending them into places for publication. Man: Cool, you should. Um, did you hear about that new poetry club, The Poetry Kitchen? Woman: Yeah, no time. Man: It's fine. It's Sunday night. You don't do anything at Sunday nights? Woman: I do homework Sunday nights. Man: Well, it's only from 7 to 9. Woman: Is it every Sunday? Man: Last Sunday of every month. I don't know about this month, 'cause it's probably a little too close to Thanksgiving, so they might move it up. I don't know what they are gonna to do, but it's a good time, it's fun, some really impressive readings. Woman: Who? From our class? Man: Some people from our class are reading. A lot of them go, sometimes even the professor. Woman: Really? I don't know if I would want to read in front of her. Man: You wouldn't have to read, you can just watch. I just watched the first time, but it's a good environment to read them, I think anyway. Woman: I probably have to write something new, so maybe during the summer, I just can't now. Man: Yeah, it wouldn't be the same just reading old stuff. Are you going to do summer school? Woman: Definitely! Otherwise, I'll be short 6 credits. I have no choice. Man: Yeah, me too. This is the second summer I have to take classes. Got to go now, my Shakespeare class starts in 20 minutes.
