學生       :我搞迷糊了!我以為公立大學較便宜而且提供更多選擇。

學校代表:自從全國性的經費短缺後就好景不再了。

Student:         I think you have lost me thereI thought public universities are usually more affordable and offer more.

School Rep.: Not any more since there is a fund shortage for all public schools.

 

學生       :我試著存了些錢。至少在第一年,我想在財務上我不會有問題。

學校代表:那麼,一個小型而且氣氛友善的學院該更適合你。

Student:         I have tried to save some money.  I don’t think there will be any financial problems for the first year, at least.

School Rep.: In that case, a small and friendly college might be a perfect choice.

 

學生        :為什麼?

學校代表 :一般而言,小型學院通常位於郊區。和都會地區的學校比,生活開銷較便宜。長久下來,你可能可以省下些錢。

Student:        Why is that?

School Rep.: Generally, small-size colleges are usually located in suburbia where the cost of living is much cheaper than that in metropolitan areas. And you might be able to save some money from that in the long run.

 

學生       :這點我倒沒想到!

學校代表:同時,小學校的氣氛更友善。

Student :         That’s something I haven’t thought about.

School Rep.:  Also, the atmosphere is much friendly in a small college.

學校代表   :學生老師之間的互動頻繁且活躍。

學生           :你所分析的的確有道理。

School Rep.: The interactions between students and faculty are more often and active.

Student :       What you have analyzed does make sense to me.

 

學校代表   :還有一個好處。和城市學校比,你分心的機會較少。

學生           這也是!我可不要花了大筆錢確以被學校退學收場。

School Rep: One more advantage is that the chances for you to be distracted from your study are less than studying in a big city.

Student:        That’s true. I don’t want to spend that kind of money and end up with being expelled by school.

 

學生        :在做決定前,我還該知道那些事呢?

學校代表:老實說,你在決定去那裡之前,是有些其他該知道的事。

Student:         What are the other things I should know before making the final decision?

School Rep.: I fact, there are things you should think about before you decide where to go.

 

學生        :我洗耳恭聽!

學校代表:除了規模和地點外….

Student:          I am all ears.

School Rep.:  Other than the size and location….
