Todd: Miki, when you were in college where did you live?托德:美琪,你上大学的时候住在哪里?Miki: My first year I lived in the dormitory that was quite close to the campus. It was about a five minute walks so it was very convenient but Im not sure that that many people actually enjoyed living in the dormitory because there were so many of us packed into such a small space that one did not get a sense of privacy at all. I shared a room with two other girls and 24 hours a day there was always someone near you, next door, down the hall if not in your own room, and a very small space. In Japan perhaps this wouldnt have been such a large problem because the sense of personal space and privacy perhaps isnt as strong growing up, but really in the ed States if you grow up with you own room, if you grow up with your own sense of self and if, you know, you have personal space that you define just instinctively which, you know, maybe three feet in front of you, a meter, or if you have your own personal room itself, its very difficult to move from that sort of sense of individuality and personal private space, to move into the dorms, and to have to share, all of that, and then always have a smile on your face, if you dont want to be considered a bitch.美琪:我大一的时候住在宿舍里,离校园非常近。步行5分钟就可以到学校,非常方便,但是我不确定是不是大部分人都喜欢住在宿舍里,因为我们太多人住在一个小地方,实际上完全没有隐私。我和另外两个女孩住在一个宿舍里,一天24个小时你附近都有人,如果你不在自己的房间里,那你的隔壁和楼下大厅也全是人,地方非常小。这在日本可能不是大问题,因为日本人在成长过程中的个人空间感和隐私感可能并不那么强烈,但是实际上在美国,如果你成长的阶段拥有自己的空间,如果你成长的阶段有自我感觉,如果你有个人空间,那你就会本能地认为距离你三英尺或是一米的距离就是你的个人空间,如果你拥有自己的个人空间,那从那个个人感和私人空间离开,然后搬进宿舍,和他人共享空间非常难,如果你不想被看成是讨厌的人那你的脸上就要一直挂着笑容。Todd: Yeah, so what about food? What did you eat for food? Did you have a kitchen? Did you cook?托德:那食物怎么样?你吃什么?宿舍里有厨房吗?你做饭吗?Miki: In the dormitories, no! We had a dining hall. I dont quite remember what it was called, but it was a common area where everyone went downstairs at the same time. It was only open, three hours in the morning, 3 hours in the evening, and we all shared our time together, kind of like a family, I suppose, and we must have eaten just normal American food. I dont remember.美琪:在宿舍里不做!我们有餐厅。我不太记得那具体叫什么,不过就是一个公共区域,所有人都同时去楼下用餐。那里只在上午开放三个小时,晚上开放三个小时,我们会一起共度时光,像一家人一样,我们吃的一定是普通的美国食物。我不记得了。Todd: Yeah! Yeah! How about your laundry? How would you wash your clothes?托德:好吧!那怎么洗衣?你是怎么洗衣的?Miki: That I forget! I think we had laundry machines every other floor in the dorm building. But I actually dont remember. Sorry!美琪:我忘了!我想宿舍楼每层都有洗衣机。不过实际上我真的不记得了。对不起!Todd: And what would students do for fun? for socializing?托德:那学生的活动都有什么呢?社交活动?Miki: Oh, I think the bigger question is whether students did anything besides socialize, you know, right, I mean, if youre a freshman the chances of you actually doing work are actually quite small, especially in that sort of a social setting where,美琪:我想更大的问题是学生们除了社交活动还有什么活动,你知道,我的意思是,如果你是大一新生,那你实际上学习的机会非常小,尤其是在那些社交场合……Todd: Even at Beckley?托德:伯克利大学也是吗?Miki: Oh, are you kidding me? Yes! Berkley is highly competitive but its also highly, its a highly social atmosphere, especially in the dorms, well, and then once you move into a communal area, if youre there with your friend, then I dont think a whole lot of studying goes on.美琪:你在跟我开玩笑吗?没错,伯克利分校竞争非常激烈,但是那里的社交氛围也很强,尤其是在宿舍里,一旦你进入公共区域,如果你和朋友一起,我认为你们不会一起进行很多研究工作。Todd: Wow! Thats funny! Oh, thanks!托德:哇!那真有趣!谢谢你!Miki: Surely!美琪:不客气! /201406/3029219.

The city is center is busy but its not very busy. Its not as busy as Tokyo or New York. Its just a busy city but then it just slows down as you move away from the city.亚伦:墨尔本是澳大利亚第二大城市,那里是个大城市,有许多高楼,也有许多房屋,不过那里也有乡村,有许多山脉和绿色的草木。这座城市是澳大利亚的中心,是座繁忙的城市,但是其实并不是那么繁忙。并不像东京或纽约那样繁忙。它只是个繁忙的城市,而在你远离城市以后就会发现它放慢了脚步。Todd: Is it easy to find housing?托德:那里容易找房子吗?Aaron: Its very easy to find housing.

A decent house?托德:一座房子要花费多少钱?一个不错的房子?Aaron: A decent house in Australia, or in Melbourne, would cost about 250,000 Australian dollars, which I guess compared to Japanese prices, isnt so bad, and that would be a big 4 bedroom house, maybe two stories.亚伦:在澳大利亚,在墨尔本一座不错的房子要花费25万澳元,我认为和日本房价相比的话,还不算太贵,这样的房子基本有4间大卧室,可能有两层。Todd: Wow! Front yard and backyard?托德:哇!有前院和后院吗?Aaron: Front yard, back yard, driveway, garage, 4 bedrooms.亚伦:有前院,后院,私人车道,车库,还有4间卧室。Todd: Whats the transportation like in the city?托德:墨尔本的交通情况怎么样?Aaron: The transportation is very good, but its very slow. You have to wait twenty minutes for trains. They only run every twenty minutes, but the buses and the trams will take you to wherever you want to go, but the trains are very centralized, so they all run into the city, through four major train stops, and then they run back out to the suburbs on a big loop so they never cross over each other and you have to catch buses if you want to go away from the city.亚伦:交通情况非常好,不过速度很慢。你要是坐列车必须要等20分钟。列车每20分钟运行一趟,不过公交车和有轨电车可以带你去你想去的任何地方,而列车很集中,它们都在城市中运行,会通过4个主要的火车站,它们会在郊区循环一圈再返回市区,所以它们从来不会交叉,而如果你想离开市区的话不得不去赶公交车。Todd: Is it a safe city?托德:那是一个安全的城市吗?Aaron: It is a safe city but like any place it has its troubles but you dont have to worry about living in Melbourne.亚伦:墨尔本是安全的城市,不过就和其他地方一样,它也有自己的问题,不过你不必担心在墨尔本的生活。 /201403/278325
