1. Frank:你要申請單一性別的宿舍房間還是男女混合的宿舍?
Sharon
:我還沒有決定。男女混合的宿舍可能好玩,可是我須要寧靜的環境來讀書。
Frank: Are you going to apply for a room in a single-sex dorm or in a co-ed dorm?
Sharon: I haven't decided. A co-ed dorm might be fun, but I've got to have peace and quiet to study.

 

2. Sharon:校外的房子看起來很不錯。你有沒有聽說過那些套房式公寓怎麼樣?
Frank
:房租很合理,而且走路到校園只要15分鐘。
Sharon: The off-campus housing looks pretty nice. Have you heard anything about
those studio apartments?
Frank: The rent's pretty reasonable, and they're only a fifteen-minute walk from campus.

 

3. Frank:我的父母說我應該住在家裡而且通勤到學校?.
Sharon
:可是校內停車證真的很難申請,你可能得停到校外。
Frank: My parents said I should live at home and commute to school.
Sharon: But an on-campus parking permit is really hard to get. You might have to park off-campus.

 

4. Sharon:住在校外將會花多少費用?
Frank
:嗯,你一定要算房租、水電費和押金,宿舍堣@間房會便宜很多。
Sharon: How much will it cost to live off campus?
Frank: Well, you've got to figure in rent, utilities, and a security deposit-- a dorm room
will be much cheaper.

 

5. Frank:你的新室友怎麼樣? 希望不會很糟糕。

Sharon:不!一點兒也不會,她的名字是Ellen我想我們會相處得很好。

Frank: So what's your new roommate like? Not the roommate from hell, I hope.

Sharon: No, not at all. Her name's Ellen. I think we're going to get along just fine.

 

6. Sharon:我們應該在哪裡洗衣服? 附近有沒有自助洗衣店?

Ellen:別擔心。地下室有洗衣機和烘乾機。

Sharon: Where are we supposed to do laundry? Is there a laundromat nearby?

Ellen: Don't worry. There are washers and dryers in the basement.

 

7. Sharon:不好意思。可不可已以請你把音樂關小聲一點讀書時間到
11:00
為止。
   Marilyn
:對不起!我以為這層樓的人都出去了。
   Sharon: Excuse me, could you turn the music down, please? Study hours don't end
   until 11:00.
   Marilyn: Sorry. I thought everybody on this floor had gone out.

 

8. Ellen:好,你的東西都搬進來了嗎?
Sharon
:差不多了。我的最後一箱東西還在樓下大廳,我只要把它搬上來打開就好。
Ellen: So, are you all finished moving in?
Sharon: Almost. My last box of stuff is in the lounge downstairs. I've just got to carry it up and unpack it.

 

9. Frank:你不讓我看看你的新房間嗎?
Sharon
:嘿!別忘了這是女生宿舍,如果你被我們的舍監逮到,你就完蛋啦!
Frank: Aren't you going to show me your new room?
Sharon: Hey, don't forget that this is a women's dorm. If our R.A. (Resident Assistant) catches you in here, you're history.

 

10. Janet:這是不是Kensington 宿舍?

Sharon:不是。這裡是Morton, Kensington在中庭的另一邊。

Janet: Is this Kensington Hall?

Sharon: No, this is Morton. Kensington's on the other side of the quad.
