提到高职院校,我们顺便说一下与其相关的几种院校的英文对应词。在八十年代上大学的人不多,那时候大部分人上的都是“大专”(college)和“中专”(technical secondary school/secondary specialized school),大专和中专都属于“专科学校”(postsecondary specialized college);还有人去了“技校”(technical school)。要注意把高职院校和职高(职业高中)相区别,“职高”是vocational high school,还有现在不断涌现的“培训学校”是training school。

同一段话里前面说“中专”是technical secondary school/secondary specialized school,后面说 大专和中专都属于“专科学校”(postsecondary specialized college)

secondary =中等 postsecondary =高等
They are definitely NOT the same.

Interestingly, GRADUATE and POSTGRADUATE may mean the SAME.

都是“研究生”,但前者是美式,后者是英式,一般不混用。
