  一般在雅思话题里碰到“决定”、“选择”或者“计划”啥的,咱们烤鸭就说“出国留学”就OK。这样就可以把之前准备过的study abroad的优缺点或者留在国内深造的优缺点分别讲出来凑时间了。既然是个“选择”,就说明各有利弊,我们需要一个权衡的过程,于是就把这个思考的心理过程讲出来即可。

  The most important decision I had to make so far is whether or not I should go abroad to pursue a master’s degree. And I’m really grateful to my dad for helping me make this decision.

  About a few months ago, I started to think about my future, and I have two choices: find a job immediately after graduation or go on to a graduate school.

  If I get a job, I could finally be financially independent, I mean, I don’t have to ask my parents for money anymore, and I could buy myself whatever I want. However, I will lose the freedom that a student has, I mean, no more summer and winter vacations. Plus, I have to face too much pressure from my boss, or maybe other coworkers. And dealing with the complicated relationships could really give me a headache.

  And the other option, going abroad, sounds tempting at first, ‘cause I could travel in a different country and try all those tasty food, but living alone in a foreign country can be really challenging for me. So I was completely torn.

  My dad and I had a serious conversation about it. He said getting a master’s degree in a foreign country is better for me, ‘cause not only can I learn about a different culture, I could also develop my independent skills. I would grow into a big boy after I come back.

  And that’s how I made the decision, so here I am.

  What do you think of the show so far?

  Detectives are so far at a loss to explain the reason for his death.

  master’s degree = master’s = a further university degree that you study for after a first degree

  grateful = feeling or showing thanks because somebody has done something kind for you or has done as you asked例如:

  I am extremely grateful to all the teachers for their help.

  We would be grateful for any information you can give us.

  She seems to think I should be grateful to have a job at all.

  He was grateful that she didn't tell his parents about the incident.

  graduate school = a part of a college or university where you can study for a second or further degree

  tempting = something that is tempting is attractive, and makes people want to have it, do it, etc. 例如:

  It was a tempting offer.

  It's tempting to speculate about what might have happened.

  A weekend in Rome? Mm, sounds tempting!
