TPO 21 - Question 3
Daily E-mail with campus activities
The university will now send all students a daily email containing information about campus events and activities. Rather than get information about campus events once a week in the campus newspaper, students will get the information every day, thus ensuring that it is always up-to-date. According to the university spokesman who announced the plan, “For all of us now, e-mail is part of our daily lives”. Students in particular have become used to relying on email and the Internet for most communication, so it is a logical change that will benefit everyone.
1. Did you read about the new plan?
2. Yeah, what do you think?
3. I think it's a great idea
6. Well, I just don't think the newspaper gets the most up-to-date information about activities.
7. Well, the paper comes out weekly.
8. What's the problem?
9. The fact that it comes out just once a week is the problem.
10. I read the paper every Monday.
11. But then I forget that they are having a concert or showing a film or whatever, or like on Thursday or Friday and that'll always give me a reminder, on the day of the event.
12. Yeah, that way you wouldn't forget.
13. And like if something gets cancelled at the last minute.
14. Well that way you'd know and you wouldn't waste time showing up and no one is there.
15. I haven't thought of that.
16. That would be really helpful.
17. But do you think students are actually gonna read the E-mail?
18. Are you kidding?
19. Everyone checks their E-mail at least once a day.
20. And if maybe they also include the cafeteria menu for the day in the E-mail.
21. Well, then people are definitely gonna to read it.
22. You are so right; I can't wait until they start.
