4. Read the following dialogue. The expression in bold type show the way people can be persuaded. Note them down. Be ready to act out the dialogue in class:


Molly. Yolanda, I have big news to tell you. I've made a very big decision.

Yolanda: Well, come on. What is it?


M.: I'm going to apply to medical school.

Y.: You're what? But I thought you wanted to teach.

M: I've decided to give that up. Teaching jobs are being cut back now at many universities.

Y.:Yes, and I've read that a number of liberal arts colleges have been closed.

M: I have a friend who finished his Ph. D. in history last year. He's been looking for a teaching position for a year, and he's been turned down by every school so far.

Y.: I suppose a Ph.D. in the humanities isn't worth very much these days.

M: No, it isn't. And even if you find a teaching job, the sala­ry is very low.

Y.: Yeah, college teachers should be paid more. But, Molly,it's very difficult to get into medical school today.

M.: Iknow. I've been told the same thing by everyone.

Y.: How are you going to pay for it? It costs a fortune to go to medical schools now.

M.: Maybe I can get a loan from the federal government.

Y.: That's an interesting possibility but it doesn'tsolve the financial problem entirely even ifyou get the student financial aid. You will graduate owing money. Medical students, espe­cially, acquired heavy debts. Recently I read of one who owed $ 60,000. Won't you be facing sufficient other problems with­out starting life in debt? Aren't many college graduates having trouble even finding jobs? When they find them, don'tthey be­gin at relatively modest salaries ?

M.: I don't know, but...

Y.:It's foolishfor a student to acquire debt, a negative dow­ry, unlessit's absolutely imperative. Students sometimes be­come so excited about college that they forget there's life after­wards.

M: Maybe you're right. Life is a series of compromises, I'll have to consider career possibilities in the light of college costs...
