Letter in the Centerville College News

The administration has plans to acquire a new sculpture for campus. We should all oppose this plan. The university’s poor financial condition led it to increase the price for campus housing and tuition by 15% this past year. Surely then it is no financial position to purchase such an expensive sculpture. Moreover, just look at the sculpture: several 60-foot ling steel plates, jutting out of the earth at odd angles! It’s so large, it’ll take up all the green space in front of the campus center! This is public space that should be reserved for students to use.

M: Did you see Paul’s letter in the paper about the new sculpture?

W: Yeah, but it was totally unconvincing. His reasons for opposing the plan are just totally off. I’m glad we’ll finally have some nice art on campus. I’d like to shake the donor’s hand and say thank you.

M: What do you mean “the donor”?

W: You didn’t know? An anonymous donor is paying the bill for most of the sculpture.

M: Not the university?

W: No. His assumptions about who is paying for it are all wrong.

M: Still, I wonder if he has a point about the space it will take up.

W: Well, you know why Paul is upset? He and his friends are always out there on the lawn right where the sculpture will be, kicking around the soccer ball. Now they’ll just have to use another part of the campus to play.

M: Oh, so he just doesn’t want to have to move.

W: Yeah, for him it’s sculpture versus convenience.

리딩 편지 주장

We should oppose the administration’s plans to acquire a new sculpture for campus. (우리는 캠퍼스에 세울 새로운 조각상을 구입하려는 계획에 반대해야 한다)

첫번째 이유: to increase the price for campus housing and tuition by 15% this past year (기숙사비와 학비가 15% 오를 수 있다는 것)

두번째 이유: A new sculpture will take up all the green space that should be reserved for students to use. (조각상이 학생들이 사용해야 할 잔디 공간을 다 차지할 수 있다는 것)

리스닝 파트

여학생이 반대함: His reasons for opposing the plan are just totally off.

첫번째 이유: An anonymous donor is paying the bill for most of the sculpture. (익명의 기부자가 조각상의 비용 대부분을 낼 것임. 그러므로 학비나 기숙사 비용 올라가지 않을 것)

두번째 이유: He and his friends are always out there on the lawn right where the sculpture will be, kicking around the soccer ball. Now they’ll just have to use another part of the campus to play. (편지를 쓴 사람과 그의 친구들이 조각상이 들어서기로 돼 있는 잔디에서 항상 축구를 하는데 조각상이 들어서면 자신들이 다른 곳으로 이동해야 하니까 반대하는 것일 뿐이라는 것)

(샘플 답안)

The reading passage is about a letter, suggesting that students should oppose the administration’s plans to acquire a new sculpture for campus.

In the conversation, a woman disagrees with the suggestion in the letter.

Her first reason is that considering that an anonymous donor is paying the bill for most of the sculpture, students do not need to worry about the possible increase of the school housing and tuition costs.

Her second reason is that the person who wrote the letter and his friends always play soccer on the lawn where the sculpture will be erected. So he just opposed the university’s plan because he doesn’t want to find other place to kick the soccer ball.
