[00:56.17]Passage 3 English-Chinese Interpretation;
[01:00.98]Listen to the tape and interpret the following passage from English into Chinese:;
[01:08.27]Ladies and Gentlemen, My topic today is Education in Australia.;
[01:14.83]In Australia, each state and territory has its own primary;
[01:19.63]and secondary education system.;
[01:21.78]Standards, however,are high and reasonably uniform.;
[01:26.75]Within each state and territory system there are two main types of school — government;
[01:33.05]and non-government. In government schools, attended by about two thirds of children,;
[01:39.73]tuition is free. About three-quarters of the non-government schools are Catholic.;
[01:46.77]Most non-government schools charge fees.;
[01:51.08]Although the states and territories are responsible for all education,;
[01:56.12]the federal Government provides most funding for higher education.;
[02:00.45]In 1989, it set up a system under which undergraduate;
[02:06.41]and postgraduate students must make a financial contribution;
[02:11.24]toward the cost of their study. Throughout Australia,;
[02:16.05]schooling is compulsory between the age of six and fifteen years.;
[02:21.33]However, most children begin school earlier than the law requires,;
[02:26.67]usually in pre-schools run by the same organizations;
[02:31.42]that administer the mainstream schools.;
[02:34.97]Primary schooling lasts six to seven years;
[02:39.51]and the curriculum is similar across the nation.;
[02:43.00]Studies begin with basic language and mathematics,;
[02:47.23]and the fundamentals of inquiry,and social, health and creative skills are taught.;
[02:54.53]Before reaching secondary level, children are learning English, mathematics,;
[03:01.24]elementary science, social studies, music, art, craft and physical education.;
[03:09.08]Optional subjects such as religion, languages and music are common.;
[03:16.30]Secondary schooling begins at year seven or eight;
[03:20.84]and goes typically to year twelve.;
[03:23.75]More advanced levels of the same subjects are taught,;
[03:27.61]plus technical and commercial ones.;
[03:30.44]The typical secondary school is the co-educational comprehensive;
[03:35.39]or multi-purpose high school, offering a wide range of s ubjects.;
[03:40.50]Some states have separate high schools;
[03:43.31]and colleges specializing in technical, agricultural,;
[03:47.69]commercial and other fields.;
[03:50.02]Their curriculums include general academic subjects and practical training.;
[03:56.25]Major examinations or other formal assessments occur after three;
[04:02.34]of four years of high school and, at this point,;
[04:05.99]most students are old enough to leave the system.;
[04:09.35]Another two years' study is available, however,;
[04:13.21]and many keep going to the end-year twelve.;
[04:16.78]In most parts of Australia,certificates are issued at each of these levels,;
[04:22.64]called commonly the School Certificate (at or about year ten);
[04:27.70]and the higher School Certificate (year twelve).;
[04:31.08]The Higher School Certificate is usually required for university;
[04:35.79]of higher-education college entry.;
[04:38.16]Post-secondary education in Australia occurs in universities;
[04:43.05]and colleges of technical and further education called TAFEs.;
[04:49.42]Most of Australia's approximately one million TAFE students attend;
[04:55.45]state-administered colleges. The vast majority study part-time.;
[05:00.61]All major skills in a wide range of industrial, commercial, artistic;
[05:06.49]and domestic occupations are covered.;
[05:09.15]Most universities also offer non-degree continuing-education programs.;
[05:15.57]The entire system is matched by correspondence courses for students prevented;
[05:20.97]by illness, disability or residential isolation from attending schools.;
[05:26.61]There are also "school of the air",;
[05:29.23]which use two way radio networks to provide "classroom" experience;
[05:34.01]to students in isolated places.;
[05:36.35]In some states, children living too far from a secondary school;
[05:40.45]to travel daily may live in government funded or subsidized hostels.;
[05:46.04]Special educational services are provided to integrate into classrooms children;
[05:52.88]with disabilities attending special and mainstream schools.;
[05:56.94]They are designed to accommodate the special needs of children;
[06:01.03]with intellectual, physical, sensory, emotional, social or learning disabilities.;
[06:08.74]There is a nationwide school program designed to increase students' sensitivity;
[06:14.93]to the population's multicultural background;
[06:17.95]and to help ethnic communities maintain their languages and cultures.;
[06:23.31]Students from non-English speaking backgrounds are helped;
[06:26.92]to develop their English to enhance their equality;
[06:30.06]of opportunity in education and participation in society.;
[06:35.34]Educational material developed under federal initiatives is available to schools;
[06:41.04]to meet such language needs.;
[06:43.10]I'd like to stop here and wish to take your questions.;

[11:33.32]One of the world's largest natural ice-free harbors,;
[11:38.13]it is where the manufactured goods from Asia arrive throughout the year.;
[11:44.79]Vancouver's manufacturing includes lumber and paper milling,;
[11:50.34]food processing, oil refining, metal fabricating,;
[11:55.46]and the production of chemicals, machinery, electronic items, and printed matter.;
[12:02.46]Vancouver is predominantly a service center.;
[12:07.45]Since the 1960s, employment in finance, insurance,;
[12:13.17]and real-estate- related activities has tripled,;
[12:17.17]that in accommodation and food services has quadrupled,;
[12:22.22]that in health and welfare services has quintupled,;
[12:26.79]and that in services for business has increased eightfold. Employment in primary;
[12:34.98]and secondary industries has declined relative to population.;
[12:40.82]The majority of Vancouver's historic buildings are in the Gastown;
[12:47.01]and Chinatown areas.;
[12:49.75]Older sections of the city have undergone considerable change since 1960,;
[12:56.31]when downtown high-rise office buildings and hotels were built.;
[13:02.15]False Creek — a decaying industrial area with sawmills, rail yards,;
[13:08.01]and small shops — was transformed into a residential development project.;
[13:14.26]Gastown, the original heart of the city,;
[13:18.16]was restored in the 1880s style with antique stores and boutiques.;
[13:25.24]Vancouver is largely British in character with some Chinese influence.;

[15:20.42]Backgrounded by the bright blue sky, the leaves on maple trees,;
[15:26.35]with brilliant hues of red, give a flaming tribute to the city.;
[15:31.67]Maple trees produce a peculiar sap each spring,;
[15:36.39]which in turn produces a sweet and delicious syrup.;

[15:45.00]because they color the Canadian landscape in the autumn;
[15:48.40]and sweeten the Canadian palate in the spring.;

[21:47.24]Passage 2 English-Chinese Interpretation;
[21:55.43]Listen to the tape and interpret the following passage from English into Chinese:;
[22:04.73]Situated between the state of New Youk of the United States;
[22:10.49]and the province of Ontario of Canada,and with an age of 25,000 years,;
[22:17.34]Niagara Falls is one of the most spectacular natural wonders;
[22:22.17]on the North American continent. The falls are on the Niagara River,;
[22:27.08]which flows between the United States and Canada from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.;
[22:34.03]The falls are about 17 miles northwest of Buffalo, N. Y..;
[22:40.72]The industrial city and tourist center of Niagara Falls, N. Y.;
[22:46.00]is adjacent to the American side of the falls.;
[22:50.13]Niagara Falls,Ontario, is across the river.;
[22:55.62]The falls are divided into two parts by Goat Island.;
[23:01.04]The larger portion, on the southwest side, is the Canadian falls,;
[23:06.80]known as the Horseshoe Falls. It measures 790 meters along its curve and drops 49.4 meters.;
[23:18.50]The smaller American falls is northeast of Goat Island.;
[23:23.85]It is 305 meters across and drops about 51 meters.;
[23:30.30]Just before flowing over the ledge,;
[23:34.02]the American stream is only about one meter deep,;
[23:37.63]while the Canadian stream is about six meters deep;
[23:41.34]and carries some 95 percent of the Niagara River's water.;
[23:47.06]Thus the Horseshoe is the larger and grander of the two falls.;
[23:53.85]Every minute about 340,000 cubic meters, or close to 379,000 tons, of water;
[24:03.20]pours in torrents over the cliffs of the falls of Niagara.;
[24:08.23]As the water plunges from the brink of the falls,it fills the air with a silvery mist,;
[24:15.43]which under the sunlight displays many brilliant rainbows.;
[24:20.57]The plunging water also sends out a never-ending roar as it strikes the bottom.;
[24:27.40]For this reason the Indians called the cataract Niagara,;
[24:32.13]meaning "thunder of waters".;
[24:35.30]The plunging water has worn away the lower rocks;
[24:39.66]so that there are caves behind the sheets of water of both falls.;
[24:44.24]Sightseers may enter the Cave of the Winds at the foot of the American falls;
[24:49.95]and get an unusual view.;
[24:52.82]The Canadian falls has carved a plunge basin 59 meters deep.;
[24:59.44]Both the United States and Canadian governments have built parks,;
[25:04.87]viewing platforms, paths, and highways.;
[25:08.69]The Niagara Reservation State Park was established in 1885;
[25:14.09]and is New York's oldest state park. It includes an observation tower,;
[25:20.43]elevators that descend into the gorge at the base of the American falls,;
[25:25.28]and boat trips into the waters at the base of the Horseshoe Falls.;
[25:30.46]At night colored lights illuminate the falls;
[25:33.90]and create a charming spectacle which viewers find hard to turn away from.;
[25:40.11]The park area has long been a tourist site;
[25:43.40]and a favorite spot for couples to spend their honeymoons.;

[26:21.03](今天我们可以毫不夸张 地说,计算机已无所不 在。先进的高科技产品似 乎随处可见,;
[26:31.70]我们的办公室、学校和住 所都有。但是相对来说, 计算机的发展历史比较 短。;
[26:40.20]直到20世纪40年代晚期, 计算机才从专业的科学仪 器发展为商品。;
[26:48.35]保罗.赛卢奇先生在他的 《现代计算机的历史》一 书中探讨了几乎鲜为人 知的计算的展史。;
[26:56.73]以下是对保罗.赛卢奇先 生的一次采访.);
[27:02.08]问:赛卢奇先生,现代计算 的历史究竟从何时 开始的?;
[27:09.13]A:Well,computing is something that people have been doing for centuries.;
[27:14.48]But,I like to think that the beginnings of the modern era of computing;
[27:19.61]really began around 1945 when the first computer was completed that used vacuum,;
[27:26.53]or electronics,to do the calculations instead of gears and mechanical parts.;
[27:34.57]问:那台计算机的性能 如何呢?;
[27:38.35]A:Well, it was quite unreliable. The tubes burned out.frequently.;
[27:44.40]But, if you could keep it running for an hour or two you could do more work in that hour;
[27:49.99]than you could with a mechanical device running all day.;
[27:55.11]问:你在书中告诉读者, 计算机其实是20世纪40年 代后期由专业科学仪器转 变为商业产品的.;
[28:06.41]那么,是谁促成了这种转 变的呢?;
[28:10.66]A:A lot of people have claimed credit;
[28:14.32]and there is a bit controversy over this concept.;
[28:17.93]What really happened was people who built these early computers conceived of the idea;
[28:24.04]of storing the program the instructions that tell the computer what to do internally,;
[28:29.92]in its own memory. It is a very ingenious idea that seems obvious in retrospect.;
[28:37.90]问:赛卢奇先生,在你所著 的《现代计算史》中, 你论述了经济和冷战对计 算的影响。;
[28:47.68]那么,你在书中写到了 哪些影响呢?;
[28:52.10]A:We, today, enjoy a wealth of consumer products that use silicon chips;
[28:58.39]that cost sometimes a few dollars. I have one on my wristwatch.;
[29:04.38]Our pocket calculators cost a few dollars, or are even given away.;
[29:10.50]It is hard to imagine that the first silicon chips were very delicate,;
[29:16.03]very expensive devices.;
[29:19.23]No one was quite sure if they were going to work at all.;
[29:23.65]But, the United States Air Force faced a problem of trying;
[29:27.96]to miniaturize guidance electronics for its missiles;
[29:31.63]and entered into a number of contracts;
[29:34.31]with companies that were making silicon chips;
[29:37.68]and the result was they improved the reliability.;
[29:41.81]They allowed the companies to set up production lines;
[29:45.31]that eventually drove down the cost. So, today's two-dollar calculator;
[29:51.36]is the product of a multi-million dollar air force project of the early 1960s.;
[29:59.10]问:在计算机科技领域, 最大的公司显然是国际商 务机器公司,即IBM公司.;
[30:08.77]那么IBM公司有哪些功过 是非呢?;
[30:13.31]A:IBM was a manufacturer of punch cards,;
[30:17.55]equipment that used mechanical readers,and electro-magnetic replays;
[30:22.79]and they were very, very successful. Around the late 1940s;
[30:29.31]they saw these experimental electronic computers coming along;
[30:33.39]and they made a very brilliant decision to go with the electronic computer.;
[30:39.68]It sounds obvious in hindsight. But, if you were there at the time,;
[30:46.37]it might have seemed a very, very risky decision.;
[30:51.43]But, they did it and they became dominant in the computer industry.;
[30:57.02]That domination lasted right up into the 1980s until a little upstart company;
[31:04.59]called Microsoft came along and a few other companies came along.;
[31:09.60]That kind of knocked them out of that position because they failed to see;
[31:14.66]that the little personal computers,;
[31:17.28]which were kind of hobbyist kits in the early days, were going to have;
[31:21.64]such an enormous potential once the bugs were ironed out of them.;
[31:27.06]问:赛卢奇先生,我的最后 一个问题是,当今计算机 面临的主要问题是什么?;
[31:35.91]A:There used to be big problems of reliability,;
[31:39.75]just getting them to work at all. Now, they work.;

[38:14.16]Extra Text for practice;
[38:17.35]Passage 1 Chinese-English Alternating Interpretation;
[38:23.32]Listen to the tape;
[38:24.71]and interpret the following passage alternatively into English and Chinese:;
[38:32.13](加拿大通信专家马歇 尔.迈克卢汉一生中从未 碰过个人电脑.;
[38:40.00]迈克卢汉于1979年逝世, 他对媒体的研究以及他对 人们和社会的影响至今仍 发挥着作用.;
[38:51.28]美国高科技专家保罗.列 文森与迈克卢汉教授相 识,;
[38:57.08]他在自己所著的《数字化 的迈克卢汉:;
[39:00.88]进入信息化千年的引导 者》一书中探讨了迈克卢 汉对媒体的研究以及他对 大众和社会的影响.;
[39:10.48]以下是对保罗.列文森的 一次采访);
[39:15.44]问:列文森先生,你在所著 的《数字化的迈克卢汉:;
[39:21.03]进入信息化千年的引导 者》一书中探讨了 马歇尔.迈克卢汉对媒体 的研究;
[39:27.89]以及他对大众和社会的影 响.迈克卢汉教授是一位 来自加拿大的通讯专家,;
[39:35.65]一生中他从未碰过个人 电脑.可他为什么会是一 名如此重要的人物呢?;
[39:43.35]A:He did his writing in the decades of 1950s through 1970s. And those decades,;
[39:52.17]of course,were the first years of television.;
[39:55.35]He was the first thinker to really look at television;
[39:59.31]as something that had a serious impact upon our society.;
[40:04.05]Interestingly,although he was writing about television,;
[40:08.46]an enormous amount of what he said has even more applicability to the Internet age.;
[40:14.77]For example,he said that television was turning the world into a global village.;
[40:22.25]What he meant by that is that when everyone watches the same thing;
[40:26.82]on the television screen,;
[40:29.50]that group which is watching the television program is a community of sorts.;
[40:35.25]It's like the people in a village all hearing and seeing the same thing.;
[40:40.83]In contrast,now in the new millennium, when people communicate on the web,;
[40:47.53]and through the Internet, they are not only doing and hearing;
[40:52.39]and seeing the same thing, they are also participating,;
[40:56.74]communicating among each other.;
[40:59.86]So,the notion of village becomes much more meaningful;
[41:04.16]and real in our digital age.;
[41:07.23]问:所不同的是电视是一 种单向的媒体,而因特网 是双响的.;
[41:14.88]A:That's right. There is the crucial difference right there.;
[41:20.40]Most media in the 20th century,in fact all of the major media of the 20th century— radio,;
[41:27.99]motion pictures, television — were and are like newspapers and books:;
[41:33.91]one-way medi-a. The telephone, which of course was invented in 1876,;
[41:41.11]is a two-way medium. But, it is a two-way personal medium.;
[41:46.75]There is nothing public,;
[41:49.48]or there shouldn't be much public about a telephone conversation.;
[41:54.28]What makes the Internet so different is that it is public;
[41:58.63]but it is also interactive and two-way.;
[42:03.15]问:我们怎么样来确保我 们所拥有的是一个地球村 而不是一个国际贫民 窟呢?;
[42:10.63]因为因特网可能有危险. 一说起村庄,我就想到这 是一个友好的地方.;
[42:18.84]而因特网并不是一个不折 不扣的友善之地,是吗?;
[42:24.86]A:The village itself we might think of as being friendly.;
[42:29.72]But even with traditional villages,;
[42:32.73]I'm sure a fair share of villages had one or two psychotic persons.;
[42:38.82]So, the Internet is really a magnification of human life.;
[42:43.78]So unsurprisingly,yes, there are some nut cases on the Internet.;
[42:50.03]There are hackers and other types of criminals on the Internet;
[42:54.44]and we do have to work hard to be aware of those problems;
[42:59.30]and do what we can to keep them in check. At the same time,;
[43:04.66]we have to resist the temptation of turning the Internet into a police state;
[43:10.07]or into an arena where the rights and freedoms;
[43:13.92]that we enjoy off line are curtailed online in the interest of keeping it safe.;
[43:20.39]There is always that sort of balance. Yes, we want it to be safe,;
[43:26.70]but, yes, we also want it to be free.;
[43:31.45]问:马歇尔.迈克卢汉看到 了一个人人都能成为出版 商的时代.他指的是复 印机.;
[43:40.32]今天,我们有了因特网, 它能使每个人都成为出色 的出版者,但不是编辑.;
[43:48.30]人人都是出版者,但周围 却没有编辑,难道这不是 一个问题吗?;
[43:54.77]A: The traditional value of the editor is in some way to stipulate;
[44:00.58]and vouch for the quality of the publication.;
[44:04.43]Yes,there is a concern that when anyone can put anything on a web page;
[44:10.85]there is no safeguard for the quality. But, on the other hand,;
[44:16.09]and there is always another hand,;
[44:18.83]I think the reason why McLuhan celebrated first the Xerox,;
[44:23.96]allowing every author to be a publisher, and why I'm now so pleased;
[44:29.38]that the web is even expanding and amplifying that,;
[44:34.06]is there is also the danger of editors keeping out of the mixed;
[44:39.25]things that are good. What the web does is it removes the middleman;
[44:46.29]and allows the creator to communicate directly with his or her audience,;
[44:51.42]and on balance I think that's a good thing. There will be more trash available.;
[44:58.51]But,there will also be more treasure;
[45:00.91]that would otherwise be hidden from public view.;
[45:05.99]Passage 2 English-Chinese Alternating Interpretation;
[45:13.08]Listen to the tape;
[45:14.97]and interpret the following passage alternatively into Chinese and English :;
[45:31.10]Q:Almost all modern operas originated from some kind of ancient performing art.;
[45:40.15]答:是的,歌剧是由原始 歌舞发展而来,包括祭祀 神灵、祖先以及庆祝丰 收和胜利的歌舞。;
[45:51.75]据历史记载,取悦王公贵 族的专业艺术家早在春秋 战国时期便已出现。;
[46:00.35]西汉时期,宫廷和民间盛 行舞蹈、音乐、杂技和手 技等表演。;
[46:08.55]以后出现了歌舞剧,并加 入动作和对话来表现 剧情。;
[46:16.64]Q:As for as I hnow, Chinese operas first appeared in the south.;
[46:23.23]答:不完全对,这样说吧, 宋、金时期出现了杂剧, 其中最为突出是南剧, 通常叫作南戏,;
[46:35.06]主要出现在闽浙一带。 现代戏剧带有一些明显的 南戏成分。;
[46:42.88]元朝的杂剧达到盛鼎时 期,出现了一大批经典作 品和杰出的剧作家。;
[46:51.75]到了明朝,杂剧分化成不 同的地方戏剧,有着不同 的唱腔。;
[46:58.84]Q:The life of drama lies in its development and renovation.;
[47:05.76]答:完全正确。中国戏剧 到了清朝更加繁荣,同时 也进一步地区化,产生了 不同的唱腔,;
[47:16.14]如高腔、昆腔、秦腔、 梆子、二黄、西皮等。;
[47:23.17]到了清朝中期,北京的戏 班子将二黄和西皮融合起 来,同时还采用了其他唱 腔的一些成分,;
[47:34.84]推出了一种新的皮黄调, 就是现在京剧的前身。;
[47:41.09]Q:What attributes to the sustained popularity;
[47:44.83]of traditional Chinese operas?;
[47:48.73]答:在长期的发展过程 中,中国戏剧形成了鲜明 的民族特色,受到广大群 众的欢迎,;
[47:58.33]也得到政府强有力的 支持。自1949年以来, 中国传统戏剧得到了前 所未有的发展,;
[48:08.21]全国各地现有剧团 1,573个,演员达到86,000 多名,其中京剧团为135个 京剧演员11,000左右.;
[48:23.89]Q:In the west,operas are losing young audiences,What is the situation in China?;
[48:31.59]答:在变化了的生活方式 和大众传媒的冲击下,传 统戏剧在一些大城市失去 了许多年轻的观众.;
[48:42.31]但是,传统戏剧依然是最 受我国人民欢迎的娱乐活 动之一.;
