Dialogue
对话

Billy: Hi Rachel, I was thinking about doing some online learning courses this year, and wanted to ask you a few questions since I know that you’ve completed some online courses. Whilst doing the research on them, I found that there is so much jargon that I don’t always understand.

比利:嗨,雷切尔,我考虑今年进行一些在线课程的学习。听说你已经完成了一些在线课程,我想问你一些有关的问题。在学习研究这些课程的时候,我发现我遇到了很多我不能理解的行话

Rachel: I know, Billy! I remember thinking the exact same thing when I was looking up courses on the internet. I think a lot of the provided information is often filled with technical terms so that they sound impressive to the layman. What kind of courses are you interested in doing?

雷切尔:比利,我能理解。我记得在互联网选课程的时候,我也会经常想这些问题。我认为上面有很多知识涉及到很多的术语,所以对外行来说,这些术语听起来印象会很深刻。你对哪类课程会感兴趣?

Billy: Well originally, I was thinking about doing an MBA, but as that requires such a large time and financial commitment, I might postpone doing that until at least taking a few online courses in areas that I am interested in. This will increase my business acumen and possibly help me in the GMAT.

比利:哦,最初我打算读工商管理硕士,但由于它需要投入太多的时间,同时也需要有足够的经济保障,我可能先推迟一下。同时,我也考虑学习一些感兴趣的在线课程。这将提升我的商业敏锐力,还可能对我的GMAT有点帮助。

Rachel: Well Billy, I have done quite a few online courses, including some at university. One thing I found very important was that for the courses to be beneficial, you must be highly motivated to learn. You need to be very
disciplined. I mean, you have to carry out all of your work obligations and then go home and sit in front of a computer and learn about business law, or some such topic. It is very easy to fall behind on your studies if you are not diligent!

雷切尔:比利,我的确学习过许多在线课程,一些是在大学时期学习的。我发现非常重要的一点是,就是要想学以致用的话,你必须要具有百倍的动力和兴趣来学习这些课程。你必须要严格要求自己,在完成一天的工作后,回到家坐在电脑前学习商法,或是某些课题。如果你不够勤奋,会很容易跟不上学习进度的。

Billy: Yes, I could imagine that to be the case, especially if it is a boring or poorly planned syllabus. I really want to avoid falling into this trap, so I am reading up on it as much as possible before I start. Otherwise, I would never have known that E-learning, Open Distance Education; and Web Based Training (WBT) all mean essentially the same thing!

比利:是的,我能想象你所说的,尤其是在课程提纲很乏味或者安排的很不合理的时候。我真的很想避免陷入这样的境地,所以我会在开始之前进行尽可能多的了解它。否则我永远都不会知道在线学习、远程开放教育以及网上培训 (WBT),这些其实都是一回事。

Rachel: That’s definitely a smart plan, Billy. That way, you will know the difference between an MBA and an E-MBA; leadership and management; and be able to work out your opportunity cost!

雷切尔:比利,这一定是一个很明确的计划。这样的话,你就会了解工商管理硕士和高级管理人员工商管理硕士(E-MBA)的区别、领导能力和管理能力之间存在的差异,这样就能够得出你的机会成本
