昨晚终于迎来正式面试,考虑到儿子不分心、没指望、减少紧张情绪,和LD决定面试时回避片刻,他自己折腾去吧,俺该做的都已经做了。

晚上9点整出门,出门前嘱咐RUI趁还有半小时,家里又没人,把面试回答全部大声、清楚地读一遍,到点准时点击〖视频通话〗键,面试中有任何问题自己解决,不许打电话,不许逃跑。面试完后再打电话。

9点45分接到儿子电话,面试完成,自己的评价是“还行吧”。

问题基本都在准备范围内,听不懂的问题和听懂不会答的问题,都用那两句话对付。

儿子说有一问题是问hero,他明白hero是英雄,但不知道他崇拜的比尔盖茨算不算英雄,好象英雄多指古代人物。所以他选择了不明白此问题。

其实就在晚饭后我还问起这个话题,问他崇拜的偶像是谁,他答是Bill Gates and Roger Federer。其实就是换个说法。此题应该算在准备范围内。

最后一问是关于neighbor,考官说neighbor写了份非常好的推荐信,儿子说知道。考官让他说说neighbor。他说neighbor是爸妈的朋友,小的时候经常照看他~~~~,说不下去后投降,告知英语不够好说不出来了。

还有一疑问是关于年龄和年级,年龄17岁肯定没答错,年级不能肯定在问目前年级还是申请的年级,他答了11年级。

不一会儿,校方来邮件了,如下:

It was good to speak with your son this morning / evening. His English is very understandable; he had some difficulty with words like “hero” and “neighbor,” but his spoken English is pretty good.

We will need school transcripts before we can call an admissions committee meeting to review his file.

Rui indicated that he is 17 years old and applying for the eleventh grade. He may have misunderstood my question, but the application and our emails indicate that he is applying for the 10th grade. Please confirm your understanding. Thanks,

提到的都是儿子有疑问的地方,说明其它都没问题。随即俺回复如下:
Thank you for the interview and your comment.

 I know Rui's English level, he needs more practice on spoken English. Most Chinese students are weak on speaking.

 He said he understood the words "hero", Bill Gates is his hero, but he is not sure if it is right to say so.

 For "neighbor", he is unable to say more due to the lack of vocabulary.

Yes, he misunderstood your question. He is not sure you were asking the grade applying for or current grade. He has told me about it. We confirm that we are applying Grade 10.

We are still struggling for the school transcript. The school is unwilling to release because many students plan to study aboard after economic crysis. They worry that it will influence the rate of entering college.

But we will go on struggling to get it. Please wait for a period of time, sorry.

很快收到校方回复:
Thank you for clarification. I must also tell you how much I enjoyed Li‘s adult recommendation. It is apparent how much affection there is between your families.

How interesting that the school is unwilling to release the transcript! Do you have unofficial copies of grade reports you could fax to me?

看来校方的态度比较积极,正式成绩单不很在乎了。真是个不错的开始。

儿子说累坏了,面试时两条腿在下面发抖,好在声音没抖。哈哈。

多亏有比较充分的准备,感谢BRAD锻炼其心理、感谢Chris给予他信心、感谢木子爹妈文采洋溢的推荐信、感谢QI的关心和鼓励、感谢LD完备的硬件设备(全新web camera and earphone)。。。。感谢TV感谢所有TV。。。。还要感谢一中高二(10)班集体发热的同学(貌似不厚道)让RUI多一个白天准备(下午的面试中加进一些新的问题很多被问及)。。。。。。让一切进行得那么顺利~~~~~~~

丑媳妇终于见完了公婆,俺悬着的最大心思终于可以放下,休整休整备战下一环节,GO! GO! Rui
