2015-04-28 16:19:10评论 另类 自习室 安静 读书

Toronto isfull of libraries, both available for the use of the publicor exclusively foruniversity students. At times, however, theycan becomecrowded or noisy; your favourite seat in your favourite section maybe taken, or you may just want to escape the cramped, stuffysetting. When your home is noisy because of your roommates, oryou’re too distracted by the mess in your bedroom, the TV, or thefridge, you may feel the need to move somewhere else. Thankfully,Toronto is also abundant in alternative locations to study. Hereare five great unusual study spaces.

多伦多可谓图馆遍地,不仅有公共图书馆也有大学生专用图书馆。但是,有时候,图书馆也会变得拥挤嘈杂;你最爱的那个自习区的那张座椅可能会被占了先,或者有时候你可能只是想逃离那个拥挤烦闷的氛围。不过当你的神室友也在房间里吵吵,或者连你自己也受不了自己卧室的混乱程度,禁不住电视机和冰箱的诱惑而分心之时,你可能就会真切地感受到转战一片学习净土的必要性。幸运的是,多伦多同时也有丰富多样的另类自习室。下面就为大家列出5大不走寻常路的学习好去处。

INDEPENDENTCOFFEE SHOPS

另类自习室之一:独立咖啡店

It’s fairlycommon knowledge that Toronto is a city witha substantial youngadult population, and with this comes a North Americantrend: hipsters.While you may be put off by their style of clothes, taste in music,or ability to find a deep, profound meaning in any artwork thatthey encounter, one thing is for sure: they make great coffee.Independently owned coffee shops are found everywhere in the city,so finding a quiet spot could not be less strenuous. Bonus:caffeine and snacks are available on-site.

在多伦多居住着大量的年轻人,这恐怕差不多是地球人都知道;不过年轻人一多,风靡北美的独立文青潮流也感染了这里。虽然这些年轻人的穿衣风格、音乐品味和那从碰到的任何艺术作品里都能解读出深刻内涵的神奇能力或许让你不敢直视、拒之千里,有一点却是肯定的:他们煮咖啡可有一手。在这里独立咖啡店俯拾皆是,所以要想找到一个安静读的好去处绝对不难。还有个额外的好处:能量自习套餐——咖啡因加零食可是触手可得。

OUTSIDE

另类自习室之二:户外

Readingoutdoors is, of course, not feasible for the entire year. But thespring, summer, and fall in Toronto are beautiful and can providestudents with the perfect mix of light, noise, and breeze for idealstudying. Throughout the city there are parks and squares where youwill be able to find your perfect spot. Additionally, when lookingfor even more seclusion, you can take the ferry over to CentreIsland to get away from the city and have more privacy and lessdistractions.

当然,多伦多的天气不会允许你一年到头都在户外读。但是这里的春夏秋季都景色绝佳,自然光、适宜的噪声和微风搭配完美,占尽地利,可谓自习的理想之选。城市里到处都是公园和广场,你一定能找到属于你的那一隅。要是你还想享受加倍的世外之感,可以乘坐摆渡游轮到中央岛,逃离现代城市,找回更多的私人隐秘空间,也让精神更加集中。

STUDENTSPACES

另类自习室之三:学生空间

Thissuggestion may seem obvious at first. However, students tend topick the same spaces designated forstudying when they look for a place on campus to read. Try going toa space that isn’t a designated quiet space but rather anactivities room, dining hall, or music room. Try out a variety ofspaces to discover the noise level that works best for you, and tryto avoid areas where you’ll see a lot of people who youknow.

这个建议可能一听上去好像是白说。但是,其实学生们在校园里挑选阅读的去处时,总是倾向于选相同的学习专用场所。所以可以试试去那些非学习专用地带,比如学生活动室、餐厅或者乐房。试试在各种各样的场所学习,亲测一下最适合自己的噪音高低,然后别去会撞见很多熟人的地方。

APUB

另类自习室之四:酒吧

【每日校园】你有去过另类自习室吗?(双语)

Bars inToronto aren’t just meant for a chaotic night on the weekend.During the late afternoon and early evening, especially on weekdays, many pubs are fairly quiet and empty. The atmosphere can bepeaceful and you can really focus on your studying while calmingdown with a beer and bar snacks. It’s best to look for largerEnglish-style pubsbecauseof the comfortable, spacious seats and tables, and the choice ofseats.

多伦多的酒吧可不只是用来在周末晚上歌舞笙箫的。在稍晚的午后与还早的傍晚之间,特别是周一到周五,许多酒吧其实相当安静空荡。同时氛围也可以祥和宁静,你就能踏踏实实地集中精力在学习上,还可以一边喝杯啤酒、吃吃小吃消遣放松。要去酒吧自习,最好找那种较大的英伦风格酒吧,因为那里会有舒适宽敞的座位以及桌子,你还可以挑选自己喜欢的椅子坐。

A MUSEUM ORGALLERY

另类自习室之五:博物馆或美术馆

Many museumsand art galleries in Toronto, including its two most well-known,the Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario, offer freeadmission to students one day per week. This provides students withanother fairly quiet place to read – whether inthe galleries themselves or their attachedcafés. Not only will students be surrounded bywonderful visual stimuli, the inspirational aspect of theseinstitutions can also prompt students to put more effort into theirwork. The one caution about studying on these sites is to avoidschool groups – so it’s best to go later in theafternoon, after 3:00pm, when young children have left.

多伦多的许多博物馆和美术馆,包括两个最著名的——皇家安大略博物馆和安大略美术馆,都会向学生提供每周一天门票免费的优惠。这又给寻找安静自习去处的学生们带来福利——不管是画廊本身还是馆内的咖啡厅,都是静心读好去处。这里不仅有美妙的视觉享受,馆内的天才灵感也激励着自习的我们更加用功。在这里学习,唯一一个需要注意的地方就是避开学校参访团——所以大家最好下午晚点来,3点之后来参观的小朋友们就离开了。
