第十八部 第十二課: puppy's love , teacher's pet

 
  • Larry 和李華正在談論李華的一個學生。這個學生經常在李華辦公時間去找她問問題,下課也喜歡多待一會兒再走。李華今天要學兩個常用語,puppy's loveteacher's pet.
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • So, Li Hua, you say this student of yours always comes to your office hours and stays after class to talk with you? It sounds like your student has a case of puppy love to me!
  • Puppy love? 小狗跟我的學生有什麼關係呢?
  • As you know, Li Hua, puppies are very loyal and will follow their masters anywhere. We say a younger person who idolizes an older person has a case of puppy love.
  • 噢,puppy Love是指年輕人的暗戀。照你這麼說,我這個學生對我可能還真有puppy love. 我該怎麼處理呢?
  • Puppy love is usually harmless, Li Hua. I think as long as you remain professional, your student will eventually grow out of his puppy love.
  • 你是說我要裝做沒有察覺,等他自己放棄這段感情?你還挺懂行的。Have you ever had a case of puppy love?
  • Sure, I have, Li Hua. Puppy love is pretty common. I had a French teacher in high school who I really liked a lot. I stayed after class for extra help and was active in the French Club so I could spend more time with her.
  • 我真難想像你會下課不走問問題,甚至還去參加法語俱樂部,就是為了接近你的法語老師。她知道你暗戀她嗎?
  • I wouldn't be surprised if she did know. I probably wasn't the first student she had with a case of puppy love.
  • 後來呢?
  • She just treated me like all the other students. She was friendly and pleasant and didn't call attention to my behavior. Eventually, I grew out of my puppy love.
  • 所以說,她對你跟其他學生一樣,假裝沒有看出你的感情。這個老師處理得還真是不錯。
  • Yes, she did, and I really respect her for it now that I am older. What about you, Li Hua? Have you ever had a case of puppy love?
  • 現在提起來,我也曾經有過一段puppy love.
  • Really, Li Hua? Who were you in puppy love with?
  • 我上學的時候私下裡喜歡美術老師。他年輕瀟灑,充滿了創造力。不過跟你一樣,I grew out of my puppy love when I got older.
  • And I am sure your student will grow out of his puppy love, too.
  • 謝謝你,Larry, 現在我知道該怎麼對待那個學生了。
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • So, I have a question for you, Li Hua. Do you have a teacher's pet?
  • 寵物?Larry, 你知道我養貓啊。
  • Right, you do have a cat, Li Hua, but a teacher's pet is something a little different. A teacher's pet is her favorite student.
  • 哦,a teacher's pet是說我最喜歡的學生。Hmm....我有好幾個不錯的學生,但沒有一個最喜歡的。
  • I can't believe you don't have a teacher's pet, Li Hua. Surely, there is one student who is better than the rest.
  • 倒是有個叫John的學生,成績一直是A,上課很積極,如果要說teacher's pet, 那恐怕就是他了。
  • So, John is your teacher's pet. You said he is helpful in class - that is so typical of a teacher's pet. What kinds of things does he do?
  • 他經常主動幫我收、發作業,有時候還幫我擦黑板。
  • Oh, Li Hua, John is absolutely your teacher's pet! You better be careful. The other students may realize it and come to resent John.
  • 你是說其他學生如果發現John是teacher's pet, 就會妒忌他嗎?
  • That's right. I never was a teacher's pet myself, but I did know other students who were teacher's pets.
  • 那你對那些同學有什麼看法呢?
  • I was jealous of them and the attention they received from the teacher, and I found them annoying. I bet you were a teacher's pet, Li Hua.
  • 你怎麼知道的!我絕對是teacher's pet, 老師可喜歡我了。
  • So, I just have one more question for you, Li Hua. Is John, your teacher's pet, the same student who has a case of puppy love for you?
  • 不是。暗戀我的學生不是John, 你別瞎猜!
  • ………………………………………………………………………………
  • 今天李華學到了兩個常用語。一個是 puppy Love, 指年輕人的暗戀。另一個是 teacher's pet, 指老師最喜歡的學生
