Li Ming was chemistry major, a charmer noted for his easygoing and humorous temperament. However, his English was so poor that he always barely got by. The teacher admonished him that his poor English would be an impediment to scholarship. What’s more, she showed her trump card: if Li Ming did not work hard. She would flunk him. He was also told that he should not learn English merely for the sake of his diploma.Otherwise, even after graduation from university, he would still be semiliterate. Although Li Ming did not lose his composure, he was well aware that he had to settle down to work and follow through because his academic life was at stake.
基础综合英语（研究生UNIT 2 课后翻译）我的朋友琳达接受过良好的教育，既美丽又端庄，三十好几依然没有人向她求婚。究其原因，她的事业心极强，整日扑在工作上，每天来往于住处和公司之间，根本没有时间和异性交往。一想到女儿这么大了还单身一人，她父母就焦虑不安。他们不知道该如何是好，甚至还去咨询一些社会学专家。
Linda, my good friend, has received good education and is both beautiful and elegant. She was not proposed to even when she was well over thirty. The reason is that she, as a career-oriented woman, is devoted to her work. Navigating between home and the company, she had hardly any time to socialize with people of the opposite sex. Her parents were gripped by anxiety at the thought of their daughter still remaining single at such an age. They did not know what to do and even consulted with some sociologists.
But the situation began to change last month, when the headquarters of the company transferred Linda to the training department. On the new post, Linda met a man who tugged on her heartstrings for the first time. Ever since then, they dated virtually on a daily basis, and Linda realized that she would love the man beyond all reason. When she decided to take the matrimonial plunge, she informed me.
Though Linda’s love is reminiscent of the romance that we see only in movies and I don’t know what the future will hold for her, I give her my heart-felt wishes and agree readily to be a member of the entourage of bridesmaids and groomsmen.
基础综合英语（研究生UNIT 3 课后翻译）食品供应商缺乏诚信已经成为当今社会的一大问题。部分企业欺骗公众，故意散布假消息，颂扬食品添加剂是食品工业的伟大成就，并声称适量的添加剂对健康有益无害。
The disingenuousness of food suppliers has become a serious issue in today’s society. Some of them defraud the public by disinformation and extolling food additives as a great achievement in food industry. They also claim that additives at a moderate level do no harm to health.

Some experts promise to give testimony if any consumer charges food suppliers with racketeering.
基础综合英语（研究生UNIT 4 课后翻译）电子邮件对我们职业生涯和个人生活的影响非同一般。相隔千里的人们可以在短短的几秒钟之内发送并接受详尽的文件资料。这就使人们能够以一种前所未有的方式齐心协力，共同承担大量的工程项目。通过电子邮件与国外的人通信、交换文件已成为司空见惯的事情。唯一的障碍是时区的不同。
E-mail has a mind-boggling effect on our career and personal life. Those people thousands of miles away from each other can send and receive exhaustive documents in few seconds. This allows people to pull together in an unprecedented way, shared a multitude of engineering projects. Having a communication or exchanging files through the e-mail with foreign people has become a commonplace. The difference of time zone is the only obstacle.
However, on the other hand, reading e-mail will also kill much of our work time. Sometimes, we spend most of our time and energy just reading the mail without requesting and deleting junk. However, many of
these mail I got are worth to read, wiping out all of them without thinking twice seems too reckless. After all, most of these mails are from my coworkers and superiors. In my opinion, e-mail has helped to flatten the office hierarchy. Giving some advices to our boss by e-mail is much easier than talking face to face. But the disadvantage is that if the e-mail is misinterpreted, it may has injuries and offensive to others.
E-mail is a blessing and curse. Using well, it can bring many benefits, or it can cause a lot of trouble.
基础综合英语（研究生UNIT 5 课后翻译）在现代社会，尽管社会进步，物质丰富，人们总感到有些地方不对劲，但却又难以明确指出到底问题出在哪儿。空虚，没有归属感，缺乏稳定的社会关系似乎都成为人们略感不快的来由。人们对于快乐这个棘手的话题，似乎都有共识：若问及人们生活怎样，他们会谈及他们的家人、工作等而非仅仅是回答他们的薪水多少。对他们而言，生活的质量比薪水的数量更加重要。
In modern societies, despite the social progress and prosperity. People always feel that there is something not quite right. However , it is hard for them to put a finger on it. A feeling of emptiness and not belonging, a lack of defined solid relationship seem to be the sources of unhappines. People all agree on the great conundrum of personal happiness: when asked how they are, they will answer in terms of their
family life and work life rather than just what they are paid. For them, the quality of life means more than the quantity of slary.
However, politicians find it hard to grasp the subject, and are
flummoxed by immeasureable concepts such as the family value.
As a matter of fact, the government can take a provocative role to respond to the yearning for happiness.Ultimately society’s happiness requires us all to play our part, and indeed, playing our part is part of being happy.
