1. Suzanne:你為什麼只買了三本筆記本? 我知道你修了六門課。

Darren:我是呀,可是我已經有一個三孔活頁夾,也可以用來記筆記。

Suzanne   Why are you buying only three notebooks?  I thought you were takin six classes.

DarrenI am, but I’ve got a three-ring binder that I can use for notes, too.

 

2. Darren:我的印表機須要印表紙和墨水。請問你知道印表用品放在哪裡嗎?

Suzanne:我想它們在第六走道。

Darren    DarrenI need printer paper and toner for my printer. Do you know where the
                   printing supplies are?

SuzanneThey’re in aisle six, I think.

 

3. Darren:經濟學課本全都賣完了。我該怎麼辦?

    Suzanne:別擔心。書店已經又多預訂了。
    Darren
The economics textbooks are all sold out. What am I going to do?

SuzanneDon’t worry. The bookstore’s already ordered more.

 

4. Suzanne:我已經買了一整盒的螢光筆你要甚麼顏色?

Darr     Darren:別笑喔,不過我需要兩隻:我用黃色塗細節部份,綠色塗一般概   念。

SuzanneI’ve bought a whole box of highlighters.  What color do you want?

Darren     Darren: Don’t laugh, but I need two; I use yellow for details and green for general

                   concepts.

 

5. Darren:你要原子筆還是簽字筆?

Suzanne:原子筆。而且要藍色,不要上次的黑色,好嗎?

DarrenDo you want ballpoint or felt-tip pens?

SuzanneBallpoint.  And get blue, not black like last time, OK?

 

6. Suzanne:你真的要買Evans教授建議閱讀書單上的每一本書嗎?

Darren:嗯,我這學期有書費獎學金,而且我一定得用掉它。

Suzann     SuzanneAre you really going to buy every book on Prof. Evans’s suggested     
                      reading list?

Darren     Darren: Well, I got a book grant this semester, and I’ve got to spend it on
                   something.

 

7. Darren:我想買檔案夾給你,可是他們賣完了。

Suzanne:沒關係。等開學熱潮過了之後,我們會買到的。

DarrenI tried to buy some folders for you, but they’re out of stock.

SuzanneThat’s OK. We’ll get them after the beginning-of-semester rush.

 

8. Suzanne:嗨,別忘了買一瓶立可白。

Darren:     Darren: 你知道的,如果你會不看鍵盤打字,而且用電腦上的拼字校正,你

              不會需要那種東西。

SuzanneHey, don’t forget to get a bottle of white-out.

Darren     Darren: If you have  learned to touch-type and use the spell-checker on your

                   computer, you won’t need so much of that stuff, you know.

 

9. Darren:喔,我需要圖表紙,上經濟學課的時候用。

Suzanne:那你最好也帶一把尺。

DarrenOh, I need graph paper for my economics class.

SuzanneYou’d better get a ruler, too, then.

 

10. Suzanne:就算有了學生折扣,帳單還是幾乎要300美金。

Darren:和學費比起來,這算不了甚麼。

Suzanne: Even with the student discount, the bill came to almost $300!

Darren: Well, that’s nothing, compared to tuition.
