Man: Yeah, three days. But you know . . . if you'd rather come on the field trip,
why not speak with her
and see if she has
anyone to replace you?
Woman: Yeah, I'd hate to miss out on the caves. I'll definitely ask Professor Clark if there's someone else who could help her.
Man: You know. We don't leave until
If you still have to help out, any chance you could

Q: The speakers discuss two possible solutions to the woman's problem. Describe the problem and the two solutions. Then explain what you think the woman should do and why.
After summarizing the problem and solutions, you should choose the solution you think is best and give a detailed reason.
For example, you could say that you think the student should stay to set up the museum exhibit because she should honor the commitment she made to Dr. Clark.

Man: Um...well, doesn't one of your friends here on campus have a car? I mean, couldn't you borrow it for the day?
Woman: Yeah, probably, but I'd need to borrow two cars or there wouldn't be enough space for all the kids.
Woman: That's why I was going to rent the van. And then I need to find somebody else to drive too. I can't drive two cars by myself.
Man: [Chuckles] Yeah, that's true! Well, I'm sure you can probably find a volunteer, or if you wanted to save yourself the trouble of hunting down the second driver, well... what about public transportation? Check the bus schedule. I...I think there's a bus line that goes right past the zoo!
Woman: Yeah! That's a possibility. But...I don't know. It might be a real 'challenge', supervising the kids on the bus.
Woman: Sometimes they are a handful when they get excited. It's an option, though.

The speaker clearly identifies the problem and both solutions. She organizes her responses, so it is easy to follow her ideas from one to the next. She indicates her opinion of what the student should do. Although she runs out of time before she can explain why she holds that opinion, it is clear that she understands the task.
From ETS: The response is generally understandable. The speaker sustains speech throughout the response time. However, the sense of hesitation in the way the response is delivered requires some listener effort.
The choppy delivery sometimes makes it difficult to know when one sentence or idea ends and when others begin.
The speaker makes a number of errors with simple grammatical structures (very like to, let her to take, make somebody to replace her).
Overall meaning, though is not greatly affected by these errors. The speaker identifies the problem and describes the two solutions.
A higher-level vocabulary would have been helpful to more efficiently summarize the situation.
The problems and two solutions are summarized with too much detail, which prevents the speaker from having time to state her preferred solution and give a reason for it.
TPO 3--Q: The speakers discuss two possible
to the woman's
Briefly summarize the problem. Then state which of the solutions
you recommend and explain why
TPO 4--Q: The speakers discuss
two possible solutions
to the man's
Briefly summarize the problem. Then state which solution
you recommend and explain why
TPO 5--Q: Briefly summarize the woman's
Then state which solution you would recommend,
explain the reasons for your recommendation
TPO 6--Q: The professor proposes
two solutions to the problem
the woman describes. Briefly summarize the problem. Then state which solution you
recommend and explain why
The problem the students faces is a conflict between an earlier commitment to help with a museum exhibition setup and a more recent opportunity to go on a field trip lead by one of her professors.
She could talk to Dr. Clark about finding a replacement to help with setting up the museum exhibition.
As an alternative, since the field trip doesn't start until later in the week, the students could try to finish setting up the exhibit before the field trip.
