And when the 6)full-time students leave for the summer, Tufts opens its classrooms to international students taking part in the highly regarded Summer Institute for International Scholars.

塔夫斯大學座落在麻州波士頓外緣的美德福市,是全美國規模最小的研究型大學之一。大學部學生不到五千人,塔夫斯大學結合了小型校園環境的親近感覺和大型大學的世界級研究設備。全職學生離開校園放暑假時,塔夫斯大學就開放教室給國際學生來上備受好評的「夏季國際學生語言研習班」。

前面提到的「夏季國際學生語言研習班」,只是其中一項為想要增進英文技巧的國際學生開設的夏季課程。這套研習課程每年七月開課,為期六週。網站上說明這個課程教導「學生寫作美式研究報告,以及在研究所環境中作有效的溝通。」

塔夫斯的「今日英語課程」也是七月開課。對象是年紀較小的國際學生,課程分四週和六週兩種,重點在於訓練學生在美國時要用到的能力。除了聽、說、讀、寫這些課程,「今日英語課程」的學生還要練習演說、做筆記、履歷撰寫,以及研究方法。每週的「發現美國之旅」帶學生離開教室到附近參觀歷史古蹟,從中學習美國歷史和文化。

6.
Whether you are thinking of going to Tufts for just a summer or for years 23)on end, it's worth mentioning that Tufts students are some of the most 24)academically driven and focused students in the country. Quite often, American students enter university unsure of what--or for how long--they’d like to study. They wait until they’ve completed a semester or two (in some cases three or even four) before making these decisions. But there are other freshmen that know exactly which fields and degrees they’ll 25)pursue. If you are such a student, you would fit in well at Tufts University, where more than 98% of entering freshmen say they plan to pursue graduate and/or 26)professional studies.

不論你想到塔夫斯大學上一個暑假課程還是留上好幾年,都應該告訴你塔夫斯的學生對學業的努力和專注都是全國首選。美國學生進大學時常常還不清楚自己喜歡念什麼——或是要念多久。他們會等到念完一兩個學期(有些人甚至要過三四個學期)再做出決定。不過,也有一些新鮮人非常清楚自己要讀的領域和學位。如果你是這種學生,你在塔夫斯大學會適應良好:這裡剛入學的新鮮人有百分之九十八以上表示他們計畫繼續念研究所或專業領域的研究。

• 中級單字

23) on end 連續

25) pursue (v.) 追求
He's pursuing a new woman this week.

26) professional (a.) 專業的
I want to be a professional video game player.
