請問 ”Until then” 是什麼意思?

出現在底下的文章中

The grad school atmosphere here is generally cooperative, not competitive. The real competition comes when you look for a job. Until then, prepare yourself as well as possible and make sure to learn as much as you can from faculty and your fellow students.

其中的 \"Until then\" 是什麼意思呢? 謝謝!!

    The real competition comes when you look for a job. [Until then], prepare yourself as well as possible and make sure to learn as much as you can from faculty and your fellow students.

    "until"根據所接句子的肯定或否定,表達的意思有些許的不同:

    當句子為肯定句時,"until"表示主要子句的動作一直持續到子句動作發生或狀態出現為止,一般可譯為"在...以前"或"一直到...時為止"。

    Convention will go on until all parts of the fluid are of the same temperature.

    (在流體各部份的溫度完全一致以前,對流將繼續進行)

    Heat can be conducted from a hot body to a cooler one until both are at the same temperature.

    (熱可以從一個熱的物體傳到一個較冷的物體,直到兩者溫度相同為止)

    但當主要子句為否定句時,"until"則表示主要子句的動作在附屬子句的動作發生之前尚未發生,或者說主要子句的動作在附屬子句的動作發生之後才開始,這時候可譯為"直到...才"或"直到...之前...尚未":

    I didn't know till now that you were ill. (直到現在我才知道你病了)

    The petrol does not turn into a liquid until it has been cooled much more.

    (直到汽油冷卻到足夠的程度,它才會變成液體)

    所以在你所引用的文章之中的"Until then"應該指"在那之前",根據文章的意思是"在你找工作的時候才會有真正的競爭。在那之前,盡量的充實自己並且一定要盡可能的多向老師或同學學習"

    以上提供你參考

    這裡的小學氣氛一般而言是合作而非競爭的。真正的競爭來自於當你要找工作時。

    「到那時候」,盡可能自己做好準備,而且確定你竭盡所能從全校老師們及你的同學那裡,學到許多東西。
