 “Hello Mr. Kim, it’s good to see you again.”
 “Hello Mr. Brown. How have you been?”
 “Are you presenting a paper at the conference today?”
 “Actually, my presentation is tomorrow.”
 “Ah! I see.”
 “Are you also presenting?”
 
 “Yes. My presentation is this afternoon.”
 “What are you presenting on?”
 “My paper deals with problems in elite sport,
  especially the problem of post-retirement athlete development.”
 “Wow. That sounds interesting.
  What kind of development possibilities did you investigate?” 
 “Well, I talk mostly about the need for continuing education for 
   retired athletes. What is your paper about?”
 “Coincidentally, I am talking about problems in elite sport as well.”
 “Really? What is the topic?”
 “I am interested in the cultural aspect of Korean society
  which forces young people to choose between sport and academics.”
 “That sounds fascinating.
   I was wondering when someone was going to write a paper on that topic. 
  What is your conclusion?”
 “Well, it is a very complicated problem. 
   It has both historical and cultural causes. 
   My conclusion is that a change in the educational system is necessary.”
 “What kind of change are you suggesting?”
 “Well, for starters, the academic requirements for athletes
   in sport programs should be strengthened.”  
 “Won’t that affect their sport performance?”
 “Elite sport programs in other countries are able to both produce
  world class athletes and provide an education that will help
  the athletes after they retire. 
  I will propose that Korea should move in that direction as well.”
 “I definitely want to hear your presentation. What time is it and where?”
 “It’s tomorrow afternoon at 3 o’clock in room 205 of the convention center.”
 “Who is the moderator of your panel?”
 “Professor Lim of Seoul National University is the moderator.
  Do you know him?”
 “Of course. Who are the discussants?”
 “Professor Wilson of the university of Arizona and
  professor Lee of the Korean National University of Physical Education.”
 “Ah, I see. I know professor Wilson well, 
  but I’m not familiar with professor Lee. What’s his field?”
 “He specializes in sport sociology.”
 “Well, I have to get ready for my presentation.
   I’ll see you tomorrow at three o’clock.”
 
 
“Okay, see you then.”

    아주 새로운 시도 인걸요? 참 신선해요! 영어로 스포츠 관련 아이디어를 얻는다는것!! 감사합니다.
    정말 요즘 우리나라 운동하는 학생들의 다른 과목 학습능력이 화두이기는 하지요? 저도 어느정도의 성적 커트라인을 마련하는것이 그 학생들의 운동실력과 더불어 지적능력 향상에 도움이 된다고 봅니다. 감사합니다.
