Daniel: May, is the university a terrible place?
May: Surely not. Life in the university is fun. Why did you ask?
Daniel: Because you study day in and day out for the entrance exam. So I figure you would study even harder after you’ve got in.
May: Studying in the university is not easy, but it's not as arduous as you think.
Daniel: How do you know that? You haven't got in yet.
May: Of course I know. I once attended Lisa's class, sitting quietly at the back of the classroom.
Daniel: Oh, really? Were you not caught?
May: Of course not. You are allowed to attend any lecture, only if there are empty seats for you and you don't disturb the class. In universities, you study in a free and creative environment.
Daniel: What do you want to study in the university? Have you thought about it?
May: This question has really been bothering me. I like Chinese literature, you know. But economics is really hot now, and it has a very good career prospect.
Daniel: I will choose what I like. You don't know what a torture it is for me to study English, because I don't like English.
May: Though I like Chinese literature very much, I'm also interested in economics. It's a tough choice to make.
Daniel: You can decide later. You will have choices before you submit your university application form.
May: Right. I have lots of time to think carefully before I make my final decision.
