W: There is new data out today that confirms that many Americans are not good at math. And when it comes to everyday technology skills, we are did last compared to other developed countries. Here is Gabriele Emanuel of National Public Radio.
女:今天一份新发布的数据表明,美国人的数学不好。在日常的科技技能运用方面,我们跟其它的发达国家相比确实排名最后。下面有请国家公共广播电台的加布里埃尔·伊曼纽尔。
M: Let's start with the bad news that Americans are terrible at technology skills, using email, naming a file on the computer, using the link on a webpage or just texting someone.
男:让我们从一些坏消息开始吧,美国人在对于科技技能运用上,比如电子邮件,在电脑上给文件命名,用网页上的链接,或者发短信都太差了。
W: No country scored below the U.S.?
女:没有一个国家得分比美国还低吗?
M: Only one country, Poland performed as poorly as we did. Who came out the first? Japan did the best and then Finland. If you look at data about reading and math, you'll notice something interesting. Younger adults who went to college or graduate school were doing pretty well. In literacy, they were actually doing better than the peers in any other countries.
男:只有一个国家,波兰,跟我们表现得一样差。那么哪个国家最好呢?日本第一,然后是芬兰。如果你看一下关于阅读和数学的数据,你会发现有趣的事。读大学或者研究生的年轻人做的还不错。在文学方面,他们比其它国家的同龄人做得更好。
W: So that's a bit of good news!
女:所以这是个不错的消息!
M: But when you look at Americans who have a high school diploma, they look a lot like other countries' high school dropouts. We have a lot of work to do. That's especially true when it comes to math. You go to the store and there is a sale. Buy one, get the second one, half off. You decide to buy two, how much do you pay?
男:但是当你看拥有高中毕业文凭的美国人时,他们的表现像是其它国家高中辍学的人一样。我们还有很多要做的事情。尤其是数学。你去了一个商店,正好在打折。买了一件,买第二件半价。你决定买两件,你要付多少钱?
W: You mean high school graduates cannot do this task in general?
女:你是说高中生普遍不会算这个吗?
M: You are right. What does that tell us about our education system? Well, it tells us that we need to think about the preparedness of our students as they are leaving high school.
男:是的。关于我们的教育系统,这说明了什么呢?这表明我们需要思考一下学生高中毕业后他们的准备情况。
W: Right. And schools, employers, in fact, we all need to do something about it. Thank you, Gabriel.
女:是的。学校,雇主,其实我们都需要为这件事做点什么。谢谢你,加布里埃尔。
