Tiffany has an interview (小美面试)

育儿


 

Top U.S private boarding high schools flow into China, trying to enroll potential students for their schools. It can be considered as one way of fighting financial crisis as Chinese parents like to put money into their children’s education. Even if they do not have money, they would like to smash pot and sell it for iron.

 

顶尖美国私立中学抢滩中国,试图招募有潜力的中国学生, 在全球金融危机之日,此招不失为应当经济危机的方法之一,因为中国家长就算是兜里没钱,砸锅卖铁,也要望子成龙。

 

So, our little Tiffany has an interview with one of U.S school’s  representative.

 

所以,我们小美有了一次面试的机会。

 

Tiffany did not want to go. She said she had homework to do. Tiffany’s mother May, that is me, had to probe her by telling her that she would be given a good meal in any restaurant she would like to go. Tiffany liked the idea.

 

小美不想去,她说她要做作业。小美妈妈(英文名“五月”,也就是俺秦香莲,嘻嘻),不得不贿赂领导,告诉她妈妈要请她吃大餐,餐馆任她挑。小美说这还差不多。

 

Interview was hold in the Grand Hyatt hotel. Tiffany was impressed by the elegant and rich decoration of the hotel; May told her that if she wants good life, then she needs to try hard to enter good university. It seems that  it does not persuade her very much, because when the teacher asked her what she wanted to do  in the future, Tiffany said that she did not make up her mind but she was sure that she wanted to enjoy life.

 

面试在东方君悦大酒店举行,酒店装修高贵而豪华,让小美眼前一亮。小美妈妈五月不失时宜地告诉她要想过好日子就得进好大学。这一教育方式似乎并无效果,因为当老师面试她,问她将来打算做什么的时候,小美说还没想好,但有一点她很肯定: 她要好好享受生活。

 

After the interview, on the way home, May told Tiffany if she was asked that question again in other interview of her application, she should answer the question in this way: I want to have a wonderful career; I want to be a great scientist (or great artist, or great politicist). I want to make my school to be proud of me just the way I am proud of my school.

 

面试结束后,回家的路上,五月告诉小美以后再面试遇到这样的问题,应该回答说:我想当一个伟大的科学家(伟大的艺术家或伟大的政治家也可)),我将使我的学校因我而自豪,就像我为我的学校自豪一样。

 

Tiffany giggled, she said: “Mom, you admired yourself in such a degree that you think yourself to be somebody so important!”

 

小美咯咯笑,说:“妈,你好自恋啊,你以为你是啥重要人物呢!”

 

May giggle too. She knew Tiffany was right, we are as ordinary as the water in the ocean. However, in the interview of applying for school, you need to brag towards the sky.

 

五月也咯咯笑,她知道小美是对的。我们如同沧海一水。但面试的时候,你得把牛往天上吹。
