## TPO 41 Conversation 1 精听： Suggestions on Research Project 对研究项目的建议
Professor: I have some good news for you. One of the students who was signed up for the **summer term** at the field station next year won't be attending after all. Your name's first on the waiting list. So if you still want to do it, the space is **available**.
Student: Oh, that's terrific!
Professor: You were also interested in doing an independent research project next summer, right?
Student: Yeah, on salt** marsh restoration**, but that was before, when I thought I wasn't going to get into the **field station**.
Professor: Well, you can still do it if you want. I looked over your application for the independent research project, and it looks strong. I approved it. And you'd have even more resources there at the field station, so....
Student: The field station and an independent study, but the summer term is a few weeks shorter than a regular term.
Professor: Well, it's up to you. You'd have to work hard but I think you can do very well. Professor Garfield, one of the professors over at the field station...
Student: Yeah, I've heard of him.
Professor: Yes, well. Professor Garfield has been doing research on salt marshes for years, assessing human impact and methods of salt marsh restoration. He is willing to oversee your project.
Student: Wow! That's too good an opportunity to pass up.
Professor: I thought you'd say that. When I spoke with Dr. Garfield, he suggested you take a **particular** course he'll be teaching here in the spring. It's called advanced topics in salt marsh management. The course looks at salt marsh **ecology** in depth and it also focuses on factors that stress salt marsh systems and how to assess and monitor the level of stress.
Student: And that background information will fit right into my project on salt marsh restoration. This is so great!
Professor: Oh, one more thing. Do you know John Arnold?
Student: Not really, but he lives in my dorm. Why?
Professor: John's another ecology student who will be at the Field Station next summer. I approved an independent research project for him, too. Initially, he had the same concern as you. But anyway, his topic will be similar to yours. He'll be researching how bridges and **culverts** that have been installed to allow **tidal** waters to move underneath roads between the sea and the salt marshes. Well, they are often too small.
Student: I guess that would result in not enough tidal water flowing into the marshes to maintain the natural **vegetation**, right?
Professor: Exactly, and he'll be looking at how to determine the right size. So I was thinking he might be a good choice for a summer roommate for you.
summer term: 夏季学期，夏校；学生通常利用 summer term 做实验或做研究。
available: 可得到的，空闲的; The space is available 可理解为“有名额”。
field station: 野外（实验）测站
vegetation: 植物 词根 vege- 指植物，词根 -ation 为名词词根。
连读发生在：space is, interested in, do it, one of, heard of, concern as 等词之间
失爆发生在：next year, next summer, field station, advanced topic, not really 等词之间
叠合发生在 looks strong 等词之间
以上即为对于托福精听练习 TPO41 托福听力 Suggestions on Research Project 对研究项目的建议的讲解。本篇对话内容较为简单，希望大家在补充词汇的同时，重点把握连读失爆叠合等语音现象，以期通过辨音能力的快速提高，取得更加令人满意的听力成绩！
