  上周五,美国杜克大学一名助理教授向全系学生发出的一封电子邮件因涉嫌种族歧视引发关注。邮件称,有两名教职工向她抱怨说有学生在休息区“非常大声地”讲中文,并提醒学生在教学楼里要百分之百讲英语。杜克大学医学院院长已就此事道歉,涉事助理教授也已辞职。

  A director of graduate studies at Duke University has stepped down after she reportedly asked Chinese students to speak only in English while on campus, even during breaks.

  据报道,杜克大学一名研究生项目主任要求中国学生在校园内只讲英语,甚至在休息时间也只能使用英语聊天。这名项目主任在事件被曝光后辞职。

  Megan Neely, an assistant professor at the university, is believed to have sent an email to students on Friday afternoon after receiving complaints from two unnamed colleagues.

  据称,杜克大学助理教授梅根·尼利在收到两名不具名教职员工的投诉后,于上周五下午向学生们发送了一封邮件。

  “Both faculty members picked out a small group of first year students who they observed speaking Chinese (in their words, VERY LOUDLY) in the student lounge,” she wrote, according to The Duke Chronicle.

  据《杜克纪事报》报道,她在邮件中写道:“有两位教职员工看到了几名一年级的中国学生在休息区‘大声说中文’。”

  “They wanted to write down the names so they could remember them if the students ever interviewed for an internship or asked to work with them for a master’s project.

  “他们想要记下这几个学生的名字,如果这些学生接受实习面试或者申请参与研究生项目,就能记起他们。”

  “They were disappointed that the students were not taking the opportunity to improve their English and were being so impolite as to have a conversation that not everyone on the floor could understand.”

  “两位教职员工很失望,这些学生没有把握机会尽力去提高英语水平,他们在楼道里用别人完全不懂的语言交流也很不礼貌。”

  Ms Neely then warned students to “keep these unintended consequences in mind when you choose to speak Chinese in the building.”

  梅根在邮件中提醒说,“当你选择在教学楼里说中文时,要注意这些意外后果。”

  The assistant professor added that while she had the “utmost respect” for international students, she encouraged them to “commit to using English 100% of the time” while in university buildings and in professional settings.

  这位助理教授还补充说,尽管她“极其尊重”国际学生,但还是鼓励他们在教学楼和讨论专业内容时“只说英语”。
