multipicklist values to picklist in visualforce page

i created a picklist in visualforcepage with all the values of a mutilpicklist field from Course__c.

this is my code:

statusOptions = new List<SelectOption>();
        // Use DescribeFieldResult object to retrieve status field.
        Schema.DescribeFieldResult statusFieldDescription = Course__c.Year_Block__c.getDescribe();
        // For each picklist value, create a new select option
        for (Schema.Picklistentry picklistEntry: statusFieldDescription.getPicklistValues()) {
            statusOptions.add(new SelectOption( pickListEntry.getValue(),pickListEntry.getLabel()));
            // obtain and assign default value
            if (picklistEntry.defaultValue){
                course.Year_Block__c = pickListEntry.getValue();
            }  
        }     

 i want to show in the picklist only the multipicklist values of one record.

example:

all multipicklist field values= 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

one record: name=Test ; multipicklist values=1, 3, 5

how can i show only 1,3,5 in the created picklist in vfpage?

If you have the id of the record that will determine the picklist options, you could try incorporating something like the below code into your controller.

Course__c var = [Select Id, Year_Block__c from Course__c where Id = :IdOfRecord];
for(String s: var.Year_block__c.split(';'))
statusOptions.add(new SelectOption(s, s));
