• Ok, let's see what courses you're planning to take next term.
  • courses
  • Here's what I'd like to take.
  • This is my schedule.
  • I see you're signing up for French as an elective.
  • Yeah. I really wanted to take a language class.
  • Sure.
  • It's just that you still haven't taken your foundation course for European History.
  • foundation course
    "foundation course"は「基礎コース/科目」の意味。自分の専門の基礎コースで、通常コースの他の授業を履修する際、すでに基礎コースが履修済みであることが条件となる。米英語では"core course"。
  • And, it doesn't look like you're planning to take it next year.
  • Um. I thought I could take it later.
  • Yes, but I'd suggest that you take the foundation course next term. Firstly, it's a good idea to get it out of the way, sooner rather than later.
  • get it out of the way
    "get it out of the way" は"complete it" 「何かに対処する/障害物を取り除く」という意味。「片付ける/終わらせる」
  • But, more importantly, it's a prerequisite for the other courses you need to take for your degree.
  • prerequisite
  • If you don't take it next term, you might have difficulty completing your degree on time.
  • Ah. I really wanted to take the French course, but I guess you're right.
  • I'll take the foundation course next term instead.
  • Maybe I'll have time to take the language course another time.
  • Good.
  • I think that will make completing your degree much easier.
  • Thank you.
