Hello and welcome to 6 Minute EngNeilsh. I’m Alice...
大家好,欢迎收听六分钟英语。我是爱丽丝。
… and I’m Neil. Hello.
大家好,我是尼尔。
Hello, Neil. You went to university, didn’t you?
你好,尼尔,你上过大学是吗?
Yes. University – the best days of my life.I made fantastic friends, went to great parties…
是的,大学是我生命中最美好的时光。在那里我认识了超棒的朋友,参加超级赞的聚会。
Did some work?
学到什么东西了吗?
Well, yeah, I did some work, but probably not enough.
学到一些,但是也许还不够。
Well, the subject of today’s show is student mental health.So, Neil, do you think you’re looking back at your university days through rose-tinted spectacles?And that means looking at a situation as being better than it really was.
今天节目的主题是学生们的心理健康。你有没有觉得你看待你的大学生活太过乐观了?也就是说真实情形其实没有看上去那么好。
I did feel out of my comfort zone when I arrived.Yes, everyone seemed to know everyone… knew where to go.
我刚去的时候确实不适应。每个人好像都了解彼此,知道要做什么。
Yes, well, being out of your comfort zone means being in a situation that you aren’t familiar with and which makes you feel nervous.Did you talk to anyone about your feelings, Neil? Did you get any counselling?And that means professional help with personal or psychological problems.
不适应是指在某个不熟悉的地方感到紧张。你有和其他人谈过你的感受吗?有接受心理辅导吗?心理辅导是指针对个人或心理问题的专家意见。
What? No, not me. I’m one of those men who isn’t good at talking about their feelings, Alice. I just felt a bit homesick that’s all – I missed my friends and family.But let’s move on, shall we! Why don’t you ask me today’s quiz question?
什么?我没有。我不是那种善于和其他人分享心情的人。我只是有点想家而已,想念我的朋友和家人。我们继续说吧!怎么还不到提问环节?
Alright then. So here it is: In a survey of students at Imperial College London, how many students said they suffered from high levels of stress or a mental health condition during their time at college? Was it…a) 1 out of 4?b) 2 out of 4?or c) 3 out of 4?
好吧,那问题来了:在一项针对帝国理工学院学生的调查中,多少学生在大学期间承受高压和心理疾病的困扰?a) 四分之一?b) 四分之二?还是 c) 四分之三?
Well, I’m going to go for c) 3 out of 4 because I do think that university life can be more stressful than people realize.
我选四分之三,因为我认为大学生活比人们想象的压力大。
Yes. And stress means pressure or worry caused by a difficult situation.OK, we’ll find out if you’re right or wrong later on.Now in theUK, there has been a rise in students using counselling services.
压力是指遇到困难时的担忧紧张情绪。之后我们再看你回答得是否正确。如今在英国,接受心理辅导的学生越来越多。
Why’s that, Alice?
为什么呢?
Well, let’s listen to Kirsty, a student at Exeter University, talking about why she has had problems. And here’s a question for you while you listen: Did she enjoy her first days in college?
我们听听埃克塞特大学的学生Kirsty讲述她为什么会有心理问题。听的时候注意这样一个问题:最初她享受大学生活吗?
No. The thing is… it… is a real balancing act. When I first got to university I don’t think I’d really realized that I’d forgotten how to make friends you know, I’d been with the same school friends for seven years,and so I was trying to balance you know social success with academic success whilst learning how to look after myself at quite a young age.And I think that’s the experience of a lot of young people. And people really struggle with it.
事实是需要一种平衡之举。我初入大学时,没有意识到自己其实已经忘了怎么交朋友,之前在同一所学校和朋友们相处了七年。所以在还小的年纪我需要平衡人际交往方面的成就和学业成绩之间的关系,同时还要自己照顾自己。我认为这也是很多年轻人共同的经历。这确实是个挑战。
What’s a balancing act, Alice?
平衡之举是什么呢?
It’s where you try to give your attention to two or more things at the same time. So here, Kirsty is trying to balance making new friends with doing her academic work and learning to look after herself.
就是同时关注两件或两件以上的事。这里Kirsty想要兼顾交友、学习以及照顾自己这些事。
What does Kirsty mean when she says she’s learning to look after herself?
Kirsty
所说的要学会照顾自己是指什么呢?
Well, to look after someone means to protect or take care of someone– and in this case, Kirsty’s learning to take care of herself – for example doing her own shopping and cooking.
照顾某人就是保护或看护某人。这里Kirsty要学着照顾自己,例如自己逛街,自己做饭。
OK, let’s listen to Dr Ruth Caleb of the counselling service at Brunel  University in Londontalking about what practical stuff students could learn before leaving for university that might make life easier for them.
我们听听英国布鲁内尔大学心理辅导中心的Ruth Caleb医生的看法,他将讲述学生们步入大学前可以学习哪些实际的东西,更好地度过大学。
Certain things that I think it would be very very helpful for students to have put in place are an ability to do the practical things of life – to do the washing, to do the cleaning and so on – being able to cook.Budgeting is extremely important in university life.And also spending time on your own comfortably.
我认为最有帮助的就是学生们应当具备一些实际的生活能力,如洗衣服,打扫卫生,做饭等。做好预算在大学生活中也是非常重要的。同时要学会独处。
Yes, that’s excellent advice. I couldn’t boil an egg when I arrived at uni.
这些是很棒的建议。我上大学时连鸡蛋都不会煮。
Oh, really? Can you do it now, Neil?
真的吗?现在你会了吗?
Just about, just about.
马上就学会了,马上。
Yeah? Great. And what about budgeting? This means planning how much money you have and how you will spend it.
真的吗?好吧。那你会做预算吗?预算是指计算你有多少钱,计划着怎么花。
I’m still pretty bad at that.However, I am very good at spending time on my own comfortably.
好吧,这方面我做的非常差。但是独处方面我做的很好。
Yes, I can believe that – feet up, watching TV with a takeaway.
这个我相信,你肯定是翘着脚,看着电视,吃着外卖。
Takeaway, of course a takeaway cause I can’t cook anything…
外卖,当然要吃外卖了,因为我不会做饭。
No.
不是吧。
… not even an egg. You know me so well. So how about the answer to today’s quiz question, Alice?
煮鸡蛋也不会。你太了解我了。该公布今天问题的答案了吧?
Alright then. I asked: In a survey of students at Imperial College London, how many said they suffered from high levels of stress or a mental health condition during their time at college?Was it…a) 1 out of 4?b) 2 out of 4?or c) 3 out of 4?
好吧。我的问题是:在一项针对帝国理工学院学生的调查中,多少学生在大学期间承受高压和心理疾病的困扰?a) 四分之一?b) 四分之二?还是c) 四分之三?
And I said c) 3 out of 4.
我选的是c) 四分之三。
Yes. And you are correct – well done, Neil! The survey, completed by over a thousand students, also found that almost 70[[[[%]]]] of those that suffer from stress do so at least once a week, and 9[[[[%]]]] of students feel stressed constantly. Stressed means anxious and worried.
回答正确!做得好!这项调查涵盖了一千名学生,在遭受压力困扰的学生中,70[[[[%]]]]至少每周一次这样的经历,还有9[[[[%]]]]的同学经常感受到压力。压力是指焦虑和担忧。
Well, I feel anxious just thinking about all that stress.Can we hear today’s words again?
我只有想到这些压力,才会感到焦虑。我们听一下今天的单词吧?
We certainly can. They are:
当然可以。今天听到的单词有:
through rose-tinted spectacles
