Now, listen to two students discussing the letter.
M: Hey, Mary. Did you see this? You think he’s right?
W: No. I don’t agree with him.
M: How come?
W: Well, because it’s not like the street out front is the only space you can park. You can also park at the dining hall, which is only a couple of blocks away or the library, which is a few blocks in the other direction. He doesn’t mention that.
M: That’s true. I guess there are other lots nearby.
W: Yeah, so there’s not really a need for it. Students may have to walk a little but that’s ok. I don’t think there always needs to be a spot right outside the building you’re going to.
M: That’s true.
W: But the other problem I have with it is even if they went ahead with his idea, it’s the location he suggests. They can’t just clear away those trees, that’s one of the only wooded areas left on campus. We don’t have many trees here and they should preserve the ones we have.
M: Yeah, it is pretty.
W: Well, yeah, and sometimes students like to sit out there in the shade on a nice day to study or read under the trees. They should leave it alone, not destroy it to make away for something we don’t need.
The woman expresses her opinion about the letter-writer's proposal. Briefly summarize the proposal. Then state her opinion about the proposal and explain the reasons she gives for holding that opinion.
In the reading, a student proposes that the school should build a parking lot near the humanities building. The first reason is that students could only park their cars in the street, which is very inconvenient. The second one is that there is a wooded area on campus, which is a perfect site for a parking lot on campus. In the listening, the woman disagrees with the proposal because of two reasons. The first is both the dining hall and library are good places to park and they are not far away from the humanities building. Students may just need to walk a few steps away. The second one is that the wooded area on campus is the only one left for students. It is better for school to leave this place to them where they can study and read books under the shade.
