你選好你要修的課嗎

我想應該選好了。這是我的選課單。您覺得我可以選四門課嗎

Have you selected the courses you want to take?

I think so. Here’s my slip. Do you think I can take four courses?

 

課程內容會決定科目的數量。讓我看看。你確定你要在同一學期選「語言學概

論」,「教育心學」,「教室管理」,和「西洋文學概論」這四門課嗎

我確信我能應付。

我則覺得功課的量太重了。

It depends on what courses you take. Let me see. Are you sure you want to take “Introduction to Linguistics,” “Educational Psychology,” Classroom Management” and  Introduction to Western Literature” all in one semester?

I am pretty sure I can handle.

Well, I think that might be too heavy a course load for you.

只有第四門課和我的主修有關,其他都是和英語教學相關的科目;我在考慮更換

主修。

儘管如此,這些課還是太重了,特別是在你於此求學的第一學期。你不是還得在

語言中心選些語言課嗎

Only the fourth course has something to do with my major, the others are all from the TESL

program; I was thinking of changing my major.

Still, that might be too much for you, especially this is the first semester you study here. Aren’t

you supposed to take some language courses from the Language Center, too?

 

我在大學部時已經修過西洋文學概論。我需要您的簽名才能辦理減免。如此

來,我就可以把語言課擠進課表中。

你有成績單嗎?

I’ve already taken Introduction to Western Literature when I was an undergraduate student. I need your signature to have it exempted. Then, I can squeeze the language courses required by the Center.

Do you have the transcript with you?

在這裡。這讓我想起令一個問題。我變更主修的機會有多大?

就學校的立場而言,我不覺得會有任何問題。但你確定這是你要的嗎?

Here you are. That brings up another question. What are the chances for me to change my

major?

As far as the school is concerned, I don’t see any problem with that. But, are you sure that’s the way you want?

我覺得如果我能有個英語教學的學位,我在學成後找到工作的機會大些。

要不,你可以考慮報名參加教師執照的訓練。

It seems to me I might have a better chance finding a job once I finish my studies with a TESL degree.

Or, you could think about getting enrolled in Teacher’s Certificate Program.

我強力主張你依原訂計畫行事。尤其是在現階段,當務之急是儘早的適應新環境。

我知道融入新環境的重要,但我同時也擔憂未來。您也知道文學這條路是既難且

長!

I would strongly suggest you to stick to your original plan since you need time to adjust yourself to the new environment.

I know it’s important to fit in in the first place, but I am also worrying about my future. You know, the road of literature is hard and long!

 

但從這段經驗中所衍生出成就會使所有的辛勞都值得!

我會好好得想一想然後讓您知道我的決定。

But think of the sense of achievement derived from this experience; it makes everything worthwhile!

I’ll give it a thought and let you know my decision soon.
