Re: Can't Stand Seeing Those Signs!

I can't stand seeing all the new No Smoking signs. Eating in a restaurant and traveling by plane are no fun anymore! Junk food (нездоровая пища) is worse than smoking. But I bet the government won't prohibit ordering burgers and fries for lunch!

Hey, Cigarman – I don't get sick when my boyfriend goes to McDonald’s, but sitting in a room full of his cigarette smoke makes my hair and clothing stink.

Hello, U.S. Smokers! I am a member of Freunde der Tabak, a Swiss group of smokers and nonsmokers. We suggest practicing courtesy to nonsmokers and tolerance of smokers. I enjoy smoking, but I understand not wanting to inhale (вдыхать) second-hand smoke.

I have been attending Longtree College for a year. I am an international student in the Chemistry Department. I am very happy about studying here. However, I have had some problems with academic advisors. The academic advisors are not used to talking to international students, so they get nervous about understanding us.

In addition, the school delays looking at the records of transfer students. I attended a university in Ukraine for two years, and I took several chemistry courses. The Chemistry Department has not yet looked at my records. My advisor recommends taking basic courses, but I am afraid of repeating courses and wasting my time.

I suggest giving a workshop for advisors. In the workshop they can practice talking clearly and organizing their information for international students. I also recommend looking at student records as soon as possible.

At first I didn’t want to sign up, but the leader was so nice. He urged me not to miss this trip, so I put my name on the list. After the meeting, a group of people asked me to go out with them.
