本人研究生学历,刚刚毕业。全奖(TA), 回首广州三次签证的经历,现在还不敢相信,希望为后来人提过醒。

我,1000,2000 秋季悲剧,三千(10.31)时当场被拒,还给了LC. 竟然在回去后收到签证官的电话,告诉我她改变了主意,让我第二天去拿签证,第二天顺利的拿到了签证。

这里,我要特别的感谢我校的外籍学者Dr.Debby. 最后两个星期中,她天天陪我练习签证,我不知道怎样向她表示我的感谢。

我的邮箱是hxh108@163.net, QQ:9341333. 我去Rutgers, the state university of New Jersey. 欢迎和我联系.

1000, 广州(7.20) 当时班上同学有几个人特别顺利的签出,因此比较大意,结果最后被瘦大山两个专业问题难倒。

(vo) what is the Endoplasmic Reticulum?
  .... I don't know.

(vo) Can you explain the structure of the cell?
  Cell is made up of cell wall, nucleus( then stoped here, thinking)

(vo) what else?
  情急之下,中文脱口而出  
vo; your english is not good enough to study for Ph.D. degree in usa.

1000 机会最好,但太大意。我的本科专业是化学,研究生是分子生物学。根本没接触过普通生物学的英文单词,但在那时候也忘了解释。我的英文口语不太好,平时没机会开口说,但是听力和阅读都还可以,香港电视的英语新闻可以基本明白.感觉1000 千万不能大意,不管情况多好,大家那时都说广州签证容易,结果我和一位舍友同天都被瘦大山拒签。

2000,广州(8.2) (胖大妈) 期间准备了很多专业词汇。
2000 结果还没有反应过来就被拒掉。 The reason is my English is not good enough to teach American students.

前两次表现不好, 被拒也心服口服。

此后,学校让我延期到春季,期间苦练口语,10月初,认识了
Dr.Debby. She was looking for someone to make some oral translation about some Chinese reference material . One of my classmate introduced me to her. So I got a precious chance to improve my spoken English.

3000: the following is the email I wrote to my department in USA after I got the visa. It’s about the whole process of the visa interview.

I went to the consulate for visa again in wednesday. At first, I was refused once more. But when I came back, the visa official (VO) I met today gave me a call. She said she changed her mind and will give me the visa and she asked me go to the consulate tomorrow with my passport and I-20. I got the visa smoothly in the second day.

When it come to my turn for the interview, the Visa official said:’ supposed I am a student and you are a teacher, now begin to give me a lecture'. She didn't want to hear any of my explanation. Then I told her something about protein purification. She told me what I said was too simple.

At this point, I made a statement that my duty as teacher assistant is for preparation and instruction in labs and I don't need give the actual lecture. Then she said:’ Supposed I am student, now give me a whole procedure in lab works we should do today.’ I argued against her:’without preparation, it’s even difficult for a native language speakers to give a that kind of presentation.’ But she insisted on that I need to give that kind of presentation, otherwise my spoken English is unbelievable. I presented a lot of reasons for my weak spoken English ability. And we get more and more high voice. Later she told : ‘now I give you the last chance to make that presentation’. At that point, another visa official told her it's time for lunch. Then she refused me and told me that you can't apply for visa again within one year. I said:' thank you anyway', then walked away depressed.

I argued with her about five of six minutes. In fact, when I stepped out of the consulate, I find that I have many things to present. I can talk about master thesis fluently at least for half hour. But at the situation of interview, I completely forget it. In addition, I think I enjoy talking with visa official. Her voice is clearly and beautiful, just like her appearance, and I can completely understand what she said. I think I also express what I want to say although I am still very nervous. I think the problem is that standard of English level she required me to reach is just for native language speakers.

All of the thing just like a dream. (linker)
