重获新生 New Lease on Life

【intro 今日导读】

It's easy to stop paying attention to how good our lives are sometimes. We become so comfortable having a home, food, and our health that we forget that not everyone has even these basic things. Often it is a serious event or situation in our lives, like losing a job or someone we love, that helps us to understand what we truly have. These kinds of events can give us a new lease on life.

When you have a new lease on life, the world looks different. You can see possibilities you couldn't see before. You might want to tell people how you feel about them and how important they are to you. People with a new lease on life might decide to make big changes in how they spend their time and who they see. It's all about making better choices and living one's best life.

Marni got bad news, but Jessica and Brian think that it can actually give her a new lease on life. Decide for yourself by reading this week's English lesson.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Jessica:  Hey, Marni. How's it going?

Marni:  I'm OK. I just got off the phone with Amanda.

Brian:  Amanda. Isn't she your boss?

Marni:  She owns the company I work for. Or at least the one I used to work for.

Jessica:  What do you mean?

Marni:  She's selling the company.

Brian:  No kidding. What does that mean for you?

Marni:  It means I'm out of a job. I don't know what to do now.

Jessica:  Marni, I know it's scary, but this change could give you a new lease on life.

Brian:  You have been saying you want to go back to school.

Marni:  It's true, but it's been so long since I've been a student. I bet everything's really different.

Jessica:  I don't think it's changed much. Brian, you're taking a class, right?

Brian:  Yes, I am. Marni, what do you want to study?

Marni:  I don't know. I know I want to pursue a master's degree.

Brian:  Well, knowing that is kind of important. That way you can find out if you need to take any prereqs.

Jessica:  Prereqs?

Brian:  Prerequisites. They're the classes you need to take before you can earn a degree.

Marni:  OK. What about the application?

Jessica:  I'm sure there will be an essay, and you'll need letters of recommendation, too.

Brian:  Don't forget your transcripts.

Marni:  Oh, this is feeling too difficult.

Jessica:  Marni, going back to school is going to change your life for the better.

Brian:  And give you a new lease on life.

Marni:  If you say so…
