W: Hi, Dr. Adams. You wanted to see me? M: Hi, Sara. Yes, I just wanted to talk to you about your zoology report. I’m making appointments with everyone to talk about their papers. W: Oh, okay. M: So what are you writing your report on now? W: I’m looking at bird migrations. M: Oh, great. That’s such a great topic. Are you focusing on anything specific? W: I think I’ve narrowed it down to birds that do short-distance migrations. You know, geese and those birds. M: Was there a reason you chose that particular topic? W: Actually, a big part of the decision just came from the fact that I found the most information on short-distance migration. Oh, and I found a lot of information on geese. M: Okay, well that’s a pretty good reason to go with that. So what direction are you taking this report in? W: Well, I thought I’d talk about goose migration in general. I’ve found out that all geese have the same general migration pattern. So I’m going to discuss that first. Then I’m going to talk about the patterns of specific geese. Like, I thought I’d compare a few different species, like the Canadian goose versus the Hawaiian goose. M: That sounds good. I’m looking forward to reading your paper.
Main points:
The zoology report
Bird migrations as a great topic
Narrowing down the topic to short-distance migrations
Having the same general migration pattern
Comparing different species
Finding information on geese
The pattern of specific geese
Canadian and Hawaiian geese

Sample answer:
The lecture was about the zoology report, which comprised bird migrations as a great topic. The spokesperson described narrowing down the topic to short-distance migrations, and the essence of finding information on geese emphasized the significance of having the same general migration pattern. Ultimately, although comparing different species could be inferred evidently from talking about specific geese, the corresponding impacts of Canadian and Hawaiian geese were acknowledged. (67)
