1.

Will:我聽說你這學期修了三個高級課程。你要怎麼把全部的書讀完?

Anne:不會那麼難--我其他的課程全都是入門級的。

 

Will: I heard that you're taking three upper-level courses this semester. How are you going to get all the reading done?

Anne: It won't be so hard-- the rest of my courses are all introductory-level.

 

2.

Laura:對不起,請問教授,選你的研究課有沒有任何先決條件?

Prof. Weaver:是的,有的。在選研究課之前,你必須先通過社會學概論,及一個自選研究課。

 

Laura: Excuse me, Professor. Are there any prerequisites for your research seminar?

Prof. Weaver: Yes, there are. You must have passed Introduction to Sociology and one other seminar of your choice before you can take the research seminar.

 

3.

Warren:現代哲學是演講課嗎?

Renee:是的。在人文大樓的演講廳上課,而且座無虛席,所以一定有超過兩百位學生選這門課。

 

Warren: Is Contemporary Philosophy a lecture course?

Renee: That's right. It meets in the lecture hall in the Humanities Building, and there's never an empty seat, so there must be over two hundred students taking the course.

 

4.

Greg: 有這麼多學生上演講課,那教授一定沒有時間回答每個學生的問題。

Winona:嗯,我們總是可以在小組討論時問教學助教們。

 

Greg: There are so many students in the lectures that the professor doesn't have time to answer everybody's questions.

Winona: Well, we can always ask one of the TA's (teaching assistants) in our discussion section.

 

5.

Chris:你真的修那些學分課嗎?

Jane:沒有,我只修五門,另外三門我只是旁聽。

 

Chris: Are you taking all of those courses for credit?

Jane: No, I'm only taking five; the other three, I'm just auditing.

 

6.

Nancy:我怕我如果修這門課,會壞了我的GPA

James:嗯,你為甚麼不用及格或不及格方式修這門課呢?

 

Nancy: I'm afraid that if I take that course, I'll ruin my GPA.

James: Well, why don't you take it pass / fail?

 

7.

Larry:我想要上的課程我都沒有選到。

Edward:嗯,我們學校的電腦選課常常這樣。它是舊生先選,但你是新鮮人。

 

Larry: I didn't get into any of the courses I wanted!

Edward: Well, that happens sometimes with our school's computer registration. It's based on seniority, and you're only a freshman.

 

8.

Edward:不要忘記:加退選的期限是今天,所以要把表格繳回註冊組。

Larry:我不會忘記--我如果不加選,我會沒有課可上。

 

Edward: Don't forget: the add/drop period ends today, so turn in your form at the registrar's office.

Larry: I won't forget-- if I don't add any courses, I won't be taking anything!

 

9.

Larry: 選課結果我的課都在早晨上。

Edward:這是個很棒的課表。你每天下午都有空。

 

Larry: It turns out that my classes are all in the morning.

Edward: That's a great schedule. You'll have the afternoon free every day.

 

10.

James:你這學期真的要選21個學分嗎?

Nancy:是呀。我的課表真的超滿,可是我需要這些學分才能準時畢業。

 

James: Are you really taking twenty-one credits this semester?

Nancy: Yeah. My schedule's really over-loaded, but I need all the credits to graduate on time.
