you're too stuck in ...


Senior Member
Hello everyone!

I would like please to say in Chinese:

"It doesn’t work like this in China and anyway, you're still a student and you're too stuck in your University books! Working is not like theory at school".

This was what said my internship tutor when I told him why there was not cross-cultural management and trainings in the firm where i was carrying out my internship this summer in Beijing.

Here are the expressions i have problems with: "it doesn't work like this"; "anyway..."; "you're too stuck in your books"; "Working is not like theory at shcool". Some of the idioms above-mentionned are particularly litteral and are quite arduous to thoroughly translate.

Many thank you in advance fellows! ;)

Thank you very much in advance!
