Last year over 5,000 year 12 students in New South Wales studied drama. Of those, only 47 were selected to perform at the Seymour Theatre Centre in Sydney. The performances were held twice daily this week, and all were sold out. The audience is made up of drama students and teachers. The young people have come from Dubbo, Byron Bay, Wollongong, Armidale and from schools throughout the Sydney basin.

Stephen Tomas,Supervisor bor\ard of senior studys said It's an opportunity for the students to show their wares, and to validate the process; so it's not just something that's locked in the vacuum of an examination period. They can actually get up and perform it, or present it publicly, because it's very easy to think "Well, I'm just doing this as part of my HSC examination, no one's going to see it, I'm just doing it for the marks".

As part of their assessment, the students must perform a solo piece, which they can either create themselves, or they can take a soliloquy from an existing play or a set monologue. The HSC assessment also includes a group piece, where the students create a play from scratch, which is at least 12 minutes long.

Stefhan Tomas also said that they have to learn to work in a group. They have to learn to lead, to be led, to take responsibility, and they are life skills. They are the sort of things you need in any job, being able to work in a corporate environment and take responsibility for the decisions you make, and to listen to other people who may have suggestions.

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw says his government has suspended plans to hold a special vote on the new European constitution. He told Parliament the French and Dutch voters' rejection of the constitution has weakened the law's future. Mr. Straw said EU delegates should discuss the rejection at its meeting later this month before Britain holds the vote. The EU conference is planned for June sixteenth. A spokesman for Britain's main opposition Conservative party says the EU constitution is now dead. But, EU President Jean-Claude Juncker says the new law can still be effective.

速記が通訳では使えない理由。
通訳では,聞いた情報をそのまますべて速記のようにメモしてしまうと情報がおおすぎて訳すことができない。
速記による大量の情報は訳すのに時間がかかりすぎてしまう。
だからもしvehicle と聞いたら車などと考え,絵に書いたりめもったりするほうが効率的である。
