【看英文中國郵報學英文】安潔莉納裘莉(Angelina Jolie)被捕捉爆哭送18歲大兒子梅鐸斯·芝萬·裘莉-彼特(Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt)進韓國前三大學府「延世大學」主修生物化學系。為什麼裘莉遠渡重洋送兒子到韓國而不是直接進入美國長春藤名校?

The actress Angelina Jolie was seen tearfully dropping her 18 years-old son Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt off to the Yonsen University in South Korea where he will study biochemistry. However, the reasons why Jolie chose to send her son off to South Korea instead of Ivy League colleges drew people’s attention. 

根據《People》報導,消息人士指出,柬埔寨養子梅鐸斯也有錄取其他學校,但最後還是選擇韓國「延世大學」。另外,消息也提到,梅鐸斯一直都在學韓文,每週有好幾堂韓文課。

According to a source that previously told the U.S. weekly magazine PEOPLE, Maddox  was taking steps to prepare for his big move, and had been accepted into other universities, but chose Yonsei.

另一個原因是,韓國距離裘莉柬埔寨置產地點並不遙遠,家人去亞洲度假時,順便去找梅鐸斯都非常方便。而裘莉也希望梅鐸斯藉由去韓國上大學,更瞭解亞洲文化。

In addition, South Korea is not far from the mansion that Jolie owns in Cambodia, making it easier for Jolie’s family to visit Maddox. She also hopes that his stay in the northeast Asian country will allow him to better understand the region’s cultures.

成立於1885年的韓國延世大學、首爾大學與高麗大學並稱為韓國三大學府(合稱SKY),相當於台灣的台、清、交大。

Yonsei University was founded in 1885 and is one of the top three prestigious universities in South Korea, the other two being Seoul National University and Korea University. 

延世大學是韓國最老牌私校,以基督教精神為準則,並以其悠久歷史與國際化的聲譽聞名。

Yonsei University is known for its Christian values, long history and internationalization. 

另外,亞洲學校非常少開設生物化學系英文課程,而延世大學正是少數有開設此課程的大學。裘莉向《People》說道:「我很期待他未來的表現,以他為榮。」

Yonsei is part of a handful of universities in Asia that offer biochemistry courses in English. “I look forward to everything he will accomplish,” Jolie previously told PEOPLE. “[I am] nothing but proud.”

安潔莉納裘莉與布萊德彼特12年婚姻,生了3個小孩,並認養3個來自世界各地的小孩。其中裘莉夫婦於2002年於柬埔寨認領的大兒子梅鐸斯(Maddox)如今已長大成帥哥。

Angelina Jolie and Brad pitt had been married for 12 years, have three biological children, and adopted three children from different countries. The eldest son Maddox from Cambodia was adopted by Jolie and Pitt in 2002 and turned 18 this year.
