澳大利亚叫中学,可是在台湾叫什么? Australia calls it High school, but what is it called in Taiwan?

Authors: Chen Zi Han (English); Jenny W. (Chinese)

上澳大利亚中学的时间和上台湾中学的时间一样长,都是六年的时间。可是澳大利亚中学的称呼跟台湾的不一样。

The time spent studying in an Australia high school is the same as in Taiwan, which is six years. However, the naming convention for high schools in these two countries is different.

在澳大利亚,中学是称呼为“High School”。在台湾,中学有分为国中和高中。国中是三年,高中也是三年。

In Australia, people always call it “High School.” While in Taiwan, people always divide it into “Guo Zhong” and “Gao Zhong”. “Guo Zhong” is for three years and the other called “Gao Zhong” is also three years.

用英语的话,国中是称呼为 “Junior High School”, 而高中是称呼为 “Senior High School”。说到台湾的中学,其实是有分类的。台湾有两种类型的高中中学,一种称为“高中”,另一种称为“高职”。

If translated into English, “Guo Zhong” is known as “Junior High School”, whereas “Gao Zhong” is known as “Senior High School”. Speaking of Taiwan’s senior high school, it is categorized. There are two kinds of senior high school, one is called “senior high school”, the other called “senior vocational high school.”

在澳大利亚,学校有分为公立和私立学校。这个,台湾也有。可是我们发现台湾中学的安排是跟日本中学一样的。你觉得有趣不有趣?

In Australia, schools are divided into public and private schools and this is the same in Taiwan. Though, we did realise that the arrangement in Taiwan’s high school is the same as Japan’s. Don’t you think it is interesting?
