EDUCATION REPORT - Foreign Student Series: Thanksgiving in the US
教育报道——外国学生系列:美国的感恩节
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Nancy Steinbach / Broadcast: Wed, 26 Nov 2008 16:00:00 UTC

This is the VOA Special English Education Report.
这里是VOA特别英语教育报道节目。

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Americans traditionally gather for a large holiday meal with family and friends. Most schools are also closed Friday for Thanksgiving break. Some students get all week off.
在美国,这周四是感恩节。美国人在传统上会和家人朋友聚集在一起共进盛大的假日聚餐。大多数学校也在周五放假,以作为感恩节的休息日。一些学生整个星期都停课了。

So where does this leave international students? We asked a few colleges and universities around the country for this week's report in our Foreign Student Series.
那么这个感恩节里,被遗漏的国际学生将会如何度过呢?为了这周的“外国学生系列”节目报道,我们特地采访了一些这个国家的学院和大学学生。

In the Northeast, Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont, has twenty-nine international students this year out of a student population of about eight hundred. Dick Weis is the director of international programs. He says teachers and coaches invite international students to their homes for Thanksgiving. Professor Weis is having six or seven at his house for the holiday.
在美国东北部,佛蒙特州波尔尼特市的绿山学院,今年其近800名学生人数中共有29位国际学生。Dick Weis是这个学校的国际交换学生项目主管。他说,教师和指导员会邀请国际学生们去他们家里共度感恩节。在这个假日里,Weis教授邀请了六七个学生去他家。

In the Southeast, Lelia Crawford is director of international student programs at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She says school groups organize meals for the more than one thousand five hundred international students at Emory.
而在东南部, Lelia Crawford是位于佐治亚州首府城市亚特兰大的埃默里大学国际学生项目的主要负责人。她说,学校一些团体会为1,000多位埃默里国际学子组织聚餐。

Local organizations also get involved, like a group called the Atlanta Ministry with International Students. It arranges for students in the Atlanta area to celebrate Thanksgiving with American families.
同时当地组织也会参与进来,比如亚特兰大国际学生部。它安排亚特兰大地区的学生与当地的美国家庭一起庆祝感恩节。

The group also has a program called Christmas International House. International students can spend the long winter holiday with families in other parts of the United States.
这个组织还有一个名叫“国际圣诞屋”的方案。国际学生可以与美国其他地区的家庭共度漫长的寒假。

In the Midwest, Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, has more than one thousand students. Fourteen of them this year are from other countries. International student adviser Nadia Sifri says they are connected with local host families when they first arrive. The families provide a home away from home, she says, and they generally invite the students to spend Thanksgiving with them.
在中西部,衣阿华州Sioux市的莫宁赛德学院,拥有1,000多名学生。今年这其中的14人是来自别国的学生。国际学生指导老师Nadia Sifri说,他们已经和当地的主人家庭联系好了他们何时会首次到达。这些家庭为国际学生们提供了“家外之家”。她说,他们通常也会邀请学生与他们共度感恩节。

And in the West, Bob Ericksen heads the Dashew Center for International Students and Scholars at the University of California, Los Angeles. UCLA has more than five thousand international students, and he says they can enjoy not just one but three meals for Thanksgiving.
同时在西部地区,Bob Ericksen负责着洛杉矶的加里福尼亚大学Dashew中心国际学生学者部。UCLA(洛杉矶加里福尼亚大学)总共有5,000多名国际学生。他说学生们可以尽情在感恩节享用三餐而不是仅仅一餐饭。

His office and the Study Abroad Office have a dinner before the holiday. Then, on Thanksgiving Day, local families bring food to a park to share with international students. And that evening, the students can go to another Thanksgiving meal held by a service fraternity.
他的办公室和留学办公室在这个假期前有一次聚餐。然后,在感恩节那天,当地家庭带着食物到公园里和国际学生们分享。在晚上,学生们可以参加由服务联谊会发起的另一顿感恩节晚餐。

And that's the VOA Special English Education Report, written by Nancy Steinbach. Our Foreign Students Series can be found on the Web at www.unsv.com. I'm Steve Ember.
这就是本周的VOA特别英语教育报道,本次报道由Nancy Steinbach撰稿。我们的“外国学生系列”可以在www.unsv.com网站上找到。我是Steve Ember。

注:
1. Emory University:埃默里大学网址:http://www.emory.edu 埃默里大学建于1836年,位于美国佐治亚州的亚特兰大,是一所历史悠久,卓有成就的综合性私立名校,在1999年和2000年美国综合排名中该校分别列第16名和第18名,.由于可口可乐公司的创办人曾捐赠巨资兴建学校,因此该学校有”可乐大学”的称号。

4.Stanley Dashew,Dashew Center以他名字命名。Dashew的父亲来自俄罗斯,所以对国际学生特别关照,希望Dashew Center成为国际学生之家。Dashew于1958年发明了第一代银行磁卡、石油勘探井底固定技术和超灵活、多用途、极牢固全钢轮椅。
