HOUSE - hunting in the USA  2

游学生住宿事件簿

 

A.
After class
Ethan: How'd you do on the test today?
Sean: Perfect score. Not surprising, since all I do is study. 
Ethan: How about this afternoon?
Sean: Mrs. Tyler asked me to do some shopping for her. A good cultural experience, she says. I have the
(1)
list right here.
Ethan: What's on it?
Sean: Four frozen pizzas, half a
(2)dozen packs of hot dogs, and a 36-roll pack of (3)toilet paper.


下课后
伊森:你今天考得如何?
西恩:满分。这一点也不意外,我能做的只有读书。
伊森:今天下午有何打算?
西恩:泰勒太太要我帮她买些东西。她说是很好的文化经验。我这里有张清单。
伊森:上头有些什么?
西恩:四块冷冻披萨、六包的热狗,还有三十六卷装的卫生纸。


B.
Ethan: Well, at least you're having an American experience. At the International House, sometimes I feel like I'm not in America at all.
Sean: How's that?
Ethan: Well, like, this afternoon the Brazilians are going to teach Rena and I how to dance the
(4)samba.
Sean: I'm so sorry. I know you'd rather shop for hot dogs and toilet paper.
Ethan: Another example is last night. Hideki was teaching my roommate Jaroslav to
(5)curse in Japanese. 


伊森:嗯,至少你有了美国经验。在国际学舍,有时我觉得自己根本不是在美国。
西恩:怎么说?
伊森:好比说,今天下午一群巴西人要教我跟蕾娜跳森巴舞。
西恩:我很遗憾。我知道你比较想去瞎拼热狗和卫生纸。
伊森:另外一个例子是昨晚。秀树在教我的室友亚拉斯夫怎么用日语骂人。


C.
Sean: Have you given any more thought to switching with me? I'll pay you.
Ethan: You'll pay me? 
Sean: Twenty dollars a day,
(6)plus my (7)never-ending (8)gratitude.
Ethan: What would the program
(9)
director say?
Sean: She won't know. And I
(10)
doubt that Mr. and Mrs. Tyler would care. They might not even notice.
Ethan: Make it fifty a day and you've got a
(11)
deal.
Sean: Done.


西恩:你有没有再考虑过要和我交换?我付你钱。
伊森:你要付我钱?
西恩:一天二十美元,再加上我永无止境的感激。
伊森:那课程指导员会怎么说?
西恩:她不会知道的。而且我怀疑泰勒夫妇会在意。他们搞不好不会发现。
伊森:加到五十美元一天就成交。
西恩:成交。

●日常生活美语验收:沟通协调
  接下来,寄宿家庭会跟寄宿学生解释生活作息,如几点开饭、何时晾洗衣服、熄灯时间……。这时千万别害羞,若不了解一定要问清楚,不能配合的地方也要先沟通,才不会造成误会。


My class won't finish until 1:00 P.M., so I don't think I'll be home for lunch.
我下午一点才放学,我想我就不回来吃午饭了。

When do you think I could do my laundry?
请问我什么时候洗衣服比较好?

When do you usually go to bed every night?
你们每晚大约几点睡觉?

Ten o'clock is a little too early for me to go to bed. I'm used to sleeping at 12:00. Will that bother you?
十点熄灯对我来说嫌早。我习惯十二点睡。会不会吵到你们?

I'd like to share some of the housework. Is there anything I can do to help out?
我想分担一些家务。有什么我可以帮忙的?

I'm used to taking a shower at night, is that OK?
我习惯晚上洗澡,可以吗?

●寄宿家庭为了让寄宿生留下美好回忆,常会在假日安排活动,例如家族聚会、上教堂、逛街购物,或是逛名胜古迹等等,都是很棒的文化交流机会,若他们没有征询你的意见,也可以主动提出要求,让他们带你去体验你最想认识的美国。但是如果你已有别的活动或真的不想去,也别忘了诚恳有礼地说「或许下次吧。」Maybe next time.或「不了,多谢。」No, thanks.


This is my first time to attend church. It's so serene.
这是我第一次上教堂。这里感觉非常庄严。

I go fishing every weekend when I'm in Taiwan. Is there any place around here we can go fishing?
我在台湾每个周末都去钓鱼。这附近有没有地方可以钓鱼?

I've always wanted to see the NBA. Would it be possible?
我一直很想看美国职篮。有可能吗?

My friend told me I'll regret if I didn't go to an outlet mall. Are they really that big of a bargain?
朋友说我若没去过季商场一定会后悔。那里真的那么划算吗?

I really want to go, but I've made plans with my friends. I'm sorry. 
我真的很想去,可是我已经跟朋友约好了,真遗憾。

A.
After the second week
Ethan: So how do you like living at the International House?
Sean: I can't stand it. You didn't tell me about your roommate.
Ethan: Jaroslav? 
Sean: He wants me to do his (1)level one homework for him all the time. And half of his \;left ear is gone!
Ethan: I might've forgotten to (2)warn you about him.
Sean: He drinks (3)vodka for breakfast, and every time he goes out, he takes this (4)huge knife with him. He's a (5)monster!


第二周后
伊森:你喜不喜欢国际学舍的生活呀?
西恩:我受不了了。你没跟我说过你的室友。
伊森:亚拉斯夫?
西恩:他老是要我帮他做第一级的作业。而且他左耳不见了一大半!
伊森:我大概忘了警告你有他这号人物。
西恩:他喝伏特加当早餐,还有他每次外出都带一把这么大的刀。他是怪物!


B.
Ethan: He used to be a (6)sergeant in the (7)Yugoslav army. At least if you go
downtown, you'll be safe with him.
Sean: What'll happen to me if I (8)refuse to do his homework?
Ethan: I wouldn't (9)recommend that.
Sean: I want to switch back. 
Ethan: Not until I meet Rebecca. She's flying home for the weekend. 


伊森:他曾是南斯拉夫陆军士官。起码如果你要进城,跟他一起保证安全。
西恩:如果我拒绝写他的作业,会不会有事呀?
伊森:我不鼓励你这样做。
西恩:我要换回来。
伊森:等我见到蕾贝卡再说。她要飞回来度周末。


C.
Sean: What are you talking about? Who is Rebecca?
Ethan: The Tyler's daughter. She studies Chinese. You might have seen her picture in the (10)hallway.
Sean: No! This isn't fair! She's beautiful! 
Ethan: That's her. Mr. and Mrs. Tyler say she can't wait to meet me. She wants to show me the (11)volcanoes.
Sean: I hate you.
Ethan: Look, why don't you take this international phone card. Call your mom. You'll feel better then.


西恩:你在说什么?谁是蕾贝卡?
伊森:泰勒家的女儿。她修中文。也许你在玄关看过她的照片。
西恩:不!这不公平!她很漂亮!
伊森:就是她。泰勒夫妇说她等不及想见我。她要带我去看火山。
西恩:我恨你。
伊森:听着,这张国际电话卡你拿去好了。打电话给你妈。你会感觉好一点。

●日常生活美语验收:呼朋引伴

  
对话中,伊森一开始住的是「国际学舍」International House,一般都座落在校园里,设备及规定会因每个学校的情况有所不同,有些学校可以开伙,有些则要到大餐厅用餐,有些洗衣间就在宿舍里,有些则是整个学舍要到同一处洗衣,但不论情况如何,做什么经常都会呼朋引伴,加上国际学舍就是个小地球村,碰来碰去都是不同国家的人,对爱热闹的人来说最合适了。


I'm going to the cafeteria now, want to come with me?
我要去自助餐厅吃饭了,要不要一起去?

The Indian students in the next building are cooking Indian food. Let's go eat with them.
隔壁栋的印度同学煮印度菜。我们去跟他们一起吃吧。

This is kimchi. My Korean classmate made it. Wanna try some?
这是我班上韩国同学做的泡菜。要不要吃吃看?

I'm going to do some laundry tonight. If you come with me, I'll teach you some Chinese.
今天晚上我要洗衣服。若你跟我一起去,我就教你一些中文。

There is a gay film festival this Friday night, and I have three tickets. Would you and your roommate like to come with me?
星期五晚上有个同性恋影展,我有三张票。你和你室友愿意跟我一起去吗?

I'm going to the supermarket now. Do you need anything?
我要去超级市场。要不要我帮你买什么?
