Ella:It's so exciting that you'll be spending a month studying in McQuillanland this summer. When do you start packing?
Marty:I've already started. The organizers of the program gave me a list of things I need to bring.
马蒂：已经开始了 。这项计划的组织者给了我一张清单，上面写有必带的物品 。
Ella:That's really helpful.
Marty:Yeah. They say that it's essential that I bring both warm-weather and cold-weather clothes. The weather in McQuillanland is really unpredictable.
马蒂：是的 。他们说带够衣服很重要，既要带天冷时穿的衣服，也要带天热的衣服 。McQuillanland的天气很变幻莫测 。
Ella:Oh, I didn't know that.
Marty:Yeah, and they say that it's advisable that I bring medications for every malady I can think of because there are a lot of health dangers.
Ella:Wow, I never knew that about McQuillanland.
Marty:Me, neither. And while it's optional, it's also suggested that I leave all of my valuables at home. McQuillanland has a very high crime rate and visitors are often targeted.
马蒂：我也是 。还有一个可选可不选的建议，就是把所有值钱的东西留在家里 。 McQuillanland的犯罪率很高，游客常常是被袭击的对象 。
Ella:Geez, that's a lot to take in.
Marty:You're telling me. And the list says that it is absolutely required that I take a self-defense course before going. You never know what to expect in McQuillanland.
