3.详细解说

1.“student council“相当于“student government“,意为“(中学或大学的)学生会“。
2.“give up a chance of...“意为“放弃一个…的机会“。
3.“have a chance to do..“相当于“have an opportunity to do...“,意为“有机会做…“。另外,“chance“还可以表达“可能性“,
比如“have/stand a chance of(doing;)sth.“,则表示“有…的可能“。例如: If we did move to London, I'd stand a much better
chance of getting a job.(如果我们搬到伦敦,我找到工作的可能性会更大。)Ireland have an outside chance ( slight chance ) of
qualifying for the World Cup.(爱尔兰获得世界杯参赛资格的可能性很小。)
4.文化洗礼
国外团协会是什么样

学生社团,在国外通常叫作Student Club(学生俱乐部)或Student Association(学生联盟)。在国外,学生社团和学校几乎没有任何关系,它们的直系“上级“是学生会,而学生会也同样是学生们自己组织的团体,学生会负责人通常由自愿投票的学生们选出,他们担任这个重要职位之后,并不用听从校方的指挥,他们只为学生办事。说到职责,那他们的工作可多啦,比如在庆典上、开学时组织学生狂欢游行:学费高涨时,可以组织学生去校长办公楼外游行请愿等。
校内任何一人都可以组织社团,只要你对某种事物感兴趣,就可以去学生会报名建立社团。举个例子,如果你喜欢厨艺,你便可以申请一个Cooking Club(烹饪社)。俱乐部建好之后,你可以跟学生会申请宣传摊位,在新学期到来之际扩展招人,或者通过朋友介绍,招募学校里来自各个国家的同学。
也许大家觉得,烹饪社并不稀奇。但有些社团大家一定没有参加或者听说过。以多伦多大学为例,那里有潜水社(Diving Club),帆船运动社(Sailing Club),侧影轮廓舞蹈连(Silhouettes Dance Company ),王氏社团(The Wang's Club),孤独症学生社交联盟 ( Social Association for Students with Autism,简称SASA ) ,南亚联盟(South Asian Alliance.简称SAA )。斯巴达克思青年社( Spartacus Youth Club),华人大学生联谊会(Chinese UndergradAssociation)等多个有意思的社团。
在经费方面,欧美的学生社团都是由自己筹款或向学生会申请款项,而学生会的资金也是由各方公司赞助或自己筹集的。
