  NATASHA: I don't know what I'm going to do.

  I need to find a job. If I don't, I won't be able to stay here next semester.

  ERIC: Have you tried university part-time jobs?

  NATASHA: What do you mean?

  ERIC: I mean in the library, or in some information center.

  Often the university hires foreign students for part-time positions.

  NATASHA: Yes, I know. I tried that.

  They don't have anything now. So what can I do?

  ERIC: Well, since you're a foreign student, it's hard.

  That's because it's actually illegal for you to work in America.

  NATASHA: I know that. You don't have to tell me that. That's my problem.

  I know I have the right to work for the university. That's legal.

  But they don't have a job for me. And it's illegal for me to get a job elsewhere.

  ERIC: Anyway, there must be some solution.

  You know there are many people working illegally in New York.

  NATASHA: But I need a pretty decent job.

  I need to make enough to pay my rent at least.

  ERIC: I have an idea.

  NATASHA: What?

  ERIC: Since you're Chinese, maybe you can find part-time work in Chinatown.

  NATASHA: I already had that idea.

  ERIC: Well, why don't you go and look down there?

  NATASHA: But I don't know what I would do.

  ERIC: It may be part-time work as a waitress or something.

  It would be illegal, but sometimes waitresses make a good salary.

  NATASHA: Maybe. I don't know.

  ERIC: I will ask my friends for you.

  Maybe someone knows a company that needs part-time people.

  That's another thing you should do. Ask all your friends to ask around for you.

  You might find something.

  NATASHA: I have to find something.

  Otherwise I have to go back to Taiwan. I'll be broke in two months.

  娜塔莎:我不知道如何是好。

  我需要找一个工作。如果我找不到,下个学期就没有办法留在这里。

  艾瑞克:你试过大学的兼职工作吗?

  娜塔莎:你的意思是?

  艾瑞克:我的意思是图书馆或者一些资讯中心。

  通常大学都会雇用外国的学生来做兼职的工作。

  娜塔莎:是,我知道。我试过。

  他们现在没有任何工作。所以,我该怎么办呢?

  艾瑞克:嗯,你身为一个外国学生,是蛮难的。

  那是因为你在美国工作是非法的。

  娜塔莎:我知道。你不必告诉我那些,那是我的问题。

  我知道我有权利在大学里工作,那是合法的。

  但是他们没有工作给我。对我来说在别的地方工作又是非法的。

  艾瑞克:无论如何,那一定有一个解决之道。

  你知道有很多人非法在纽约工作。

  娜塔莎:但我需要一个比较正式的工作。

  我需要赚足够的钱,至少能付我的房租。

  艾瑞克:我有一个主意。

  娜塔莎:是什么?

  艾瑞克:你身为一个中国人,或许你可以在中国城找到一个兼职工作。

  娜塔莎:我已经想过了。

  艾瑞克:嗯,你为什么不去看看呢?

  娜塔莎:但我不知道我能做些什么。

  艾瑞克:或许有兼职的工作像是服务生或其他的机会。

  虽然是非法,但有些时候服务生可以拿到不错的薪水。

  娜塔莎:或许吧。我不知道。

  艾瑞克:我会替你问我的朋友。

  或许会有人知道哪一家公司需要兼职的人员。

  你还需要做一件事。请你的朋友帮你打听。

  你或许会找到事情做。

  娜塔莎:我一定要找工作做。

  不然我就必须要回台湾。我会在两个月内破产。
