美语三级跳 (Go English) 005C讲 - 大学生活 高级课程

Eric和Patty是大学同学,俩人聊起了住宿情况。

Professor: Listen for the word "lousy," which means "bad."

Eric: So Patty, are you planning on living on campus this year, or are you going to go for an apartment?

Patty: Well, housing is included in my scholarship, so I have to live on campus. The food is lousy, but there are other things I like about it.

Eric: What are the good things about living in a college dorm?

Patty: There are lots of advantages to living in the dorms. For example, I like studying and hanging out with my floormates. We all go out to parties together.

Eric: Wow, it sounds like the people in your dorm are pretty close.

Patty: Yeah, we really are. I love the dorms because you make friends that last all through college.

看来,虽然食堂饭不好吃,但 Patty 还是挺喜欢住校的,跟宿舍楼里的人很合得来。对了,Professor Bowman, roommate是室友,那么Patty说的floormate是住在同一层的人么?

Professor: That's right, Winnie! A floormate is someone who lives on the same floor.

也就是“层友”! 我们来听听Eric住在哪里吧。

Patty: How about you, Eric? Are you living on campus?

Eric: Right now I live in an apartment off campus. I didn't like living on campus because the people in my dorm always had their doors closed and were studying. It wasn't much fun.

Patty: That's too bad. It sounds like the people in your dorm weren't as close as the people in my dorm.

Eric: No, you're right. Living off campus is OK, but I feel like I miss out on all of the fun stuff that happens on campus.

Patty: Have you ever thought of joining a fraternity? I hear that all the brothers in the frat houses are really close.

Eric: Yeah, I've thought about joining a frat. But the frat houses are just so dirty! I'm not sure I could take it.

Professor Bowman, "fraternity"是兄弟会吗?

Prof: Exactly. And the "frat house" is the house that the people in the fraternity live in. Sometimes fraternities are called the "Greek system." If you join a fraternity, you can say that you "go Greek."

加入兄弟会可以说“Go Greek",真有意思!那我猜,既然有兄弟会,一定也有“姐妹会”吧?

Professor: Yes! In the next section, listen for the word "sorority," which is a fraternity for women.

Eric: What about you? Have you ever thought about joining a sorority?

Patty: No way. I've heard a lot of horror stories about Greek life. Plus, I'm not a big drinker and I decided it's better to keep a clear head and focus on my studies.

Eric: You're totally right. I like to go to parties, but I don't want to wake up in the morning surrounded by empty beer bottles!

Patty: Yeah, partying in the place you live is a bad idea. Plus, all the hazing seems really stupid.

Eric: Yeah, some of my friends joined fraternities and they said the hazing was really bad.

看来,Patty对姐妹会不感兴趣。可她说的"hazing"是什么意思啊?

Professor: Sometimes when you want to join a club, the people in the club will make you do lots of crazy things to prove you really want to join. For example, a fraternity might haze one of the men trying to join it by making him wear a dress out in public.

啊?原来"hazing"就是整人啊!为了考验想加入兄弟会的男生,可能会让他穿着裙子到大马路上走一圈儿! 难怪Eric和Patty都讨厌这些hazing的把戏!

Eric: You know, my friend is having a party this Saturday night at his apartment. Do you want to come?

Patty: Sure! That sounds like lots of fun!

Eric: Great. Bring all of your girlfriends!

Patty: Wait a minute. Are you inviting me just so that I will bring lots of other girls to the party?

Eric: What? Of course not! I'm inviting you because I need a designated driver!

Eric请Patty去参加派对,但却是为了让Patty在派对结束后当他的专用司机 - "designated driver," 这是什么朋友啊!

Professor: Well, if Patty is a true friend she will want to make sure Eric gets home safely, right?

那倒也是。我看Patty也是个讲义气的朋友呢!

这次的美语三级跳就播送到这里。

Eric and Patty are talking about their college life.Eric take 3 classes. His class schedule is from Monday to Thursday. Eric want to join in singing club, but it is too competitive to get into. Patty suggest Eric to start an a cappella group. Patty doen not join in any club because he has a part-time job. He worked at a resterant bartending and serving food. A lot of American students take a part-time job to make money. Eric need not work becasue she got full ride pay for everything.
